European Committee for Home-Based Priority Action for the Child and the Family (EUROCEF) v. France
Complaint No. 114/2015

French

Comments:
This decision concerns several violations to the right of unaccompanied foreign minors to social, legal and economic protection in France on several grounds (violations of Article 17§1 of the Charter) due to: •shortcomings identified in the national shelter, assessment and allocation system of unaccompanied foreign minors; •delays in appointing an ad hoc guardian for unaccompanied foreign minors; •the detention of unaccompanied foreign minors in waiting areas and in hotels; •the use of bone testing to determine the age of unaccompanied foreign minors considered as inappropriate and unreliable; •a lack of clarity to access an effective remedy for unaccompanied foreign minors;
