Warum, wo und wie Kinder arbeiten müssen – und was man dagegen tun kann
Eine Unterrichtseinheit für die Jahrgangsstufen 6 und 7
We live in a world in which 28 million children have been driven from their
homes as a result of conflict, persecution and insecurity¹. If current trends
continue, more than 63 million children could be forced to flee by 2025², of
which over 25 million will cross borders and become refugees. At least
300,000 of these child refugees will end up alone, separated from their
families³. Without a step-change in the provision of education for refugee
children, at least 12 million of them will be out of school by 2025⁴.
Around the world, approximately 1 in 45 children are on the move – nearly 50 million boys and girls that have migrated across borders or been forcibly displaced within their own countries.1 Climate-related events
and their impacts are already contributing significantly to these staggering numbers,with 14.7 million people facing new internal displacement as a result of weather-related disasters in 2015 alone. The annual average
since 2008 is higher still, at 21.5 million, equivalent to almost 2,500 people being displaced every single day.2
Prioritise education in conflict-affected areas:
Across the world 28 million1 primary school-age children living in conflict-affected countries are
out-of-school, and they form half of the world’s total out-of-school population. During conflict,
infrastructure assets such as schools are damaged or completely destroyed during fighting. Children
may choose to stay away from school due to their and their family’s safety fears in the midst of
conflict, or the need to supplement their family’s income amidst conflict-related financial loss.
Children who are internally displaced by conflict face a particularly challenging task accessing
education due to the specific conditions created by their displacement, such as loss of livelihoods
making school fees hard to find, and discrimination from host communities. Children caught in
conflict are being deprived of their right to education2 and denied the opportunity to benefit from the
protective and life-sustaining mechanisms of education.
The principle of “the best interest of the child” should guide decisions by politicians whenever
children are affected. This is one of the basic ideas in the UN Convention on the Rights
of the Child. Decision makers should assess the consequences for children before taking
action. Today, this principle is not fully respected in European countries in relation to migrant

Unaccompanied and separated children leave their countries of origin for a variety of reasons. They may
be fleeing from persecution, armed conflict, exploitation or poverty. They may have been sent by members
of their family or decided to leave on their own – be it to ensure their survival, or to obtain an education or
employment. They may have been separated from their family during flight or may be trying to join parents
or other family members. Or they may have become victims of trafficking. Often it is a combination of

Building Inclusive, Productive and Resilient Communities in Malawi
This handbook is designed to act as a ready reference for Law Enforcement Officials and prosecutors to understand cyber crimes against children. Cyber Crimes are generally defined as those crimes in which a computer resource is either the target or is used as tool for committing the crime. These may even include cases where traditional crimes are facilitated by digital technologies as will become clear through the course of this handbook.
The handbook focusses on presenting a clear picture of cyber crimes committed against children and when cyber crimes have been perpetrated by them. It also helps Investigating Officers to understand the application of special legislation like the Information Technology Act, Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POSCO) Act and Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection) Act to such instances.
