Engaging migrant communities in the promotion of the rights of the child
Migrant communities are main actors to foster the development of the countries of origins. However, their role in the promotion of children’s rights is underestimated. The aim of this e-learning course, addressed to members of diaspora associations/migrant organisations, is to promote awareness and knowledge of the rights of the child within migrant communities and diasporas in Europe.
COMMIT-Engaging diaspora and migrant COMMunities in the protection of the rIghTs of the child is a project co-funded by the Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme of the European Union. It aims at encouraging the engagement of migrant communities in the protection and promotion of the rights of the child.
This e-learning course was developed under Work Package 2 (WP2), based on the respective manual that was created in the frame of the European Migrant School on the Rights of the Child (EMSRC) of the project. The EMSRC was to allow participants to: a) foster the multicultural dialogue and awareness on the rights of the child; b) facilitate the creation of synergies between different migrant communities in the promotion of the rights of the child; c) create a curriculum of representative(s)/defender(s) of children’s rights within each community involved.
