On 21 November, the United Kingdom announced that arrangements had been made to facilitate the repatriation of several British orphaned children. In addition, on 2 October two Austrian children were repatriated to their home country, as well as one Albanian child and one Danish child, both in early November.

Twice invisible: Accounting for internally displaced children

Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre, (2019)

Internally displaced children are twice invisible in global and national data. First, because internally displaced people (IDPs) of all ages are often unaccounted for. Second, because age-disaggregation of any kind of data is limited, and even more so for IDPs. Planning adequate responses to meet the needs of internally displaced children, however, requires having at least a sense of how many there are and where they are. This report presents the first estimates of the number of children living in internal displacement triggered by conflict and violence at the global, regional and national levels.
