The HOME Project Briefs U.S Congress on Refugees and Migrant Youth in Europe
Washington, D.C, January 26, 2018 – The U.S. Helsinki Commission invited Executive Director of The HOME Project, Sofia Kouvelaki, and Kathleen Newland of Migration Policy Institute to the United States Capitol to brief U.S. Congress on “Next Steps for Refugee and Migrant Youth in Europe.” Watch to hear answers to vital questions. “The number of arrivals of unaccompanied minors is constantly increasing: 10,500 unaccompanied minors have been officially registered since the beginning of 2016. It is very urgent to provide adequate accommodation for these children; integration starts at the point of entry…. The ultimate purpose for children that will stay is that they will be able to integrate into the job market.”
