Abstract:

Young refugees and asylum seekers represent a group of displaced youth with specific needs and assets. Their situation requires closer examination, and youth policies addressing their needs must be devised, taking into account their difficult past experiences and their often insecure or instable situation in host countries, including emotional, social and economic challenges. This publication presents the ideas, reflections and recommendations formulated by the participants of a training seminar organized in close cooperation with the UNHCR. It is a collection of testimonies and ideas from young people who have themselves experienced various situations, difficulties and successes as young refugees in Europe.--Publisher's description.
