Eligible but excluded: The protection of unaccompanied refugee minors in Greece
As an unprecedented number of refugees washed ashore Greek islands in 2015, numerous humanitarian organizations launched response efforts to provide displaced people with aid. Among these efforts were child protection projects for unaccompanied minors, who by some estimates made up 35% of the new arrivals in 2015. This talk presents the findings of a 2018-2019 study exploring how the development of immigration and refugee assistance policies systematically excluded certain categories of unaccompanied minors from accessing child protection programs that they were eligible for. Using the situation of unaccompanied refugee minors in Greece as a case study, this talk discusses how limited local knowledge in humanitarian response situations can lead to unintended consequences, and highlights management strategies that can respond to unexpected information.
