Brexit: children’s rights at risk or future opportunity in the global era?

Children live in a different world to their parents and grandparents. For them the virtual world has no borders. Around 1 in 15 children were born to a parent not born in the UK; and in 2015 over 1 in 4 births were to women born outside the UK. Children’s home environments, their classrooms and their wider world are different places from the past and they live in a rapidly changing global environment.

Key points

  • The British Government will need to address and define its obligations to children in the UK who will in future be outside the EU framework.
  • This will take a determined process and programme to ensure that every child can face the future with safety and security through and beyond the transition out of the EU.
