Geneva, 24 May 2012 - The "Addressing gaps in child protection" report was prepared for the UNHCR-ICMC Child Protection Workshop, held in Washington D.C. in May 2012. It points to the challenges that ICMC child protection experts encounter in refugee field operations and proposes a road map for addressing these concerns.

The challenges identified in this report are drawn from the first-hand experience of ICMC’s child protection experts in the field and include - among others - the need for strengthening the capacity of local partners, improving the identification of unaccompanied minors, and deploying child protection experts at the beginning of an emergency operation.
