On 16 May 2019, in Athens, on the occasion of the Roundtable Conference "Child Protection & EU Funding for migrant populations in Greece: A reality check and the way forward", several child protection experts and migration stakeholders met to discuss the reception system and integration perspectives of children in migration in Greece, from the perspective of EU funding. 

Participants included Greek authorities, EU institutions, European and national civil society actors as well as international organisations. The discussion was focused on child protection challenges that the Greek State encountered in the aftermath of the so-called refugee crisis of 2015 that revealed chronic deficiencies of the reception, asylum and child protection systems of the country.

See the attached document (available in English and Greek) for highlights from the discussion and recommendations for the Government of Greece, the European Commission, and the EU Member States.
