Communication from the Commission to the European Parliament and the Council. The protection of children in migration

In recent years, the number of children in migration arriving in the European Union, many of whom are unaccompanied, has increased in a dramatic way. In 2015 and 2016, around thirty per cent of asylum applicants in the European Union were children. There has been a six-fold increase in the total number of child asylum applicants in the last six years.
