Forced migration is one of today's major international challenges and lies at the heart of the fundamental concepts of humanity and equality.

Composed of 27 Member States that were traditionally sending countries, but which have become key destinations for migrants and refugees from all over the world in the past half century, the EU is one of the central players in the international community in terms of migration and asylum legislation and policies. The last few years have also seen the resurgence of emigration flows from some EU Member States into other countries and regions in the world.
The emergence of the child as a subject of rights has been influenced by developmental, social, political, legal theories. In this context, the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) has contributed in a major way towards a better understanding of childhood and children’s rights through its definition of the child as "every human being below the age of 18 years, unless under the law applicable to the child majority is attained earlier" (art. 1).
This e-learning course introduces staff members of (international) development agencies and NGOs to meaningful children's participation. Children have participation rights that state parties and other duty bearers should fulfill, respect and protect in families, schools, communities, and wider society.
All are warmly invited to attend the RSC's 2015 Annual Elizabeth Colson Lecture.
