Internal Migration and Children

Author : UNICEF | 2012
Published By: UNICEF India, UNESCO

Children are the most unrecognized and vulnerable groups among internal migrants. Children migrate independently or as dependents when their families migrate. Migrant children often lose access to basic entitlements, miss out on schooling and are subject to health and security risks. Child migrants forgo critical inputs necessary for their physical, psychological and intellectual development during their formative years. This has an irreversible impact on their emotional and cognitive development.
