Free text The purpose of this paper is to set out the Separated Children in Europe Programme's position to inform on going policy developments at European Union (EU) level on return. This programme, initiated in 1997, is a joint initiative of some members of the International Save the Children Alliance and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). It has developped a broad definition of the term "separated child" and wants to identify good pratice and to develop guidelines on return of children. This paper provides a framework for such guidelines with reference to all the issues related to returns such as criteria and procedures for deciding return of separated children, enforcement of return decisions and return programmes.
