Joint Committee on Human Rights

The committee has conducted an evidence session on the human rights of unaccompanied migrant children and young people in the UK.

On 27 November 2012, MPs and peers have heard from:

• Dragan Nastic, domestic policy and research officer at Unicef UK

• Sarah-Jane Savage, senior protection associate at the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) UK

• Ilona Pinter, policy adviser at the Children's Society

• Helen Johnson, operations manager, children's section, Refugee Council

The committee has said it plans to investigate whether the UK's treatment of unaccompanied migrant children and young people is consistent with its obligations under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
