Addressing Gaps in Child Protection

The “Addressing gaps in child protection” report was prepared for the UNHCR-ICMC Child Protection Workshop, held in Washington D.C. in May 2012. It points to the challenges that ICMC child protection experts encounter in refugee field operations and proposes a road map for addressing these concerns.

The challenges identified in this report are drawn from the first-hand experience of ICMC’s child protection experts in the field and include – among others – the need for strengthening the capacity of local partners, improving the identification of unaccompanied minors, and deploying child protection experts at the beginning of an emergency operation.

Welcome to Sheffield

“Welcome to Sheffield” marks the launch of ICMC Europe’s SHARE Project, an 18-month program to build a resettlement network of European municipalities, cities and regions.

“Welcome to Sheffield” provides an opportunity to learn about the approaches that have made a local resettlement program a successful, long-term reality in one city. The report describes how strong local partnerships – between the city, its NGO and civil society partners and Sheffield citizens – have contributed to the ongoing success and growth of the Sheffield resettlement program.
