The two-day conference, hosted by Czech Chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe, will serve as a unique opportunity to exchange know-how in a number of key areas including existing international human rights standards, views and approaches of regional and universal monitoring, judicial and quasi-judicial bodies, current actions promoting an end to the immigration detention of children, efforts in implementing effective alternatives to immigration detention, and other relevant experiences from the field in safeguarding the best interests of the child.
The two-day conference will shed light at three main aspects relating to the topic. The reality and practice in detention centres through the lense of both international authorities and migrant children, the relevant international human rights standards and the effective alternatives to detention.
