Left Behind ‐ The impact of economic migration on children left behind and their families
A stakeholder and expert conference: 2 March 2011, European Parliament, Brussels
Organized by EUROCHILD
This phenomenon is still underestimated and often unknown even if it concerns approximately half million children in the EU. The event will gather experts from across Europe to analyse the situation of transnational families in different European countries. It will address the causes and consequences of the migration, in particular the effects on children and their families both in the country of origin where the children are left behind, and in the parents’ country of destination. The expert inputs will have a multi‐dimension approach and combine policy analysis with relevant psychological and sociological research.
