This symposium will convene leading scholars, legal and health practitioners, policymakers, and advocates to bring to the fore of the public discussion the U.S. government’s failures to provide immigrant children with treatment consistent with standards widely accepted under domestic law and international norms. The 30th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child offers an opportune moment to reflect on a historic commitment to children’s well-being and to cogently articulate best policies and practices to protect the welfare of children in the U.S. immigration system.
