UNICEF Sounds Alarm over Mistreatment of Child Refugees in Germany

A new report released by the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) on March 21, 2017 slammed the German government for providing insufficient quality housing and schooling for the record-breaking number of minors it has accepted since 2015.

According to the report, titled “Childhood Postponed”, many child asylum-seekers in Germany still have to spend long periods in unsafe and overcrowded shelters, and some have only limited access to education and do not receive adequate health care.

UNICEF survey on the situation of 350,000 children and teenagers who have arrived in Germany as asylum-seekers since 2015 found out that refugee children often spend months or years in shelters where they witness or are exposed to violence and abuse.

Only a third of the children living in shelters have access to schools and kindergartens, it added.

The children and teenagers, along with their parents, expressed their profound disappointment over the noise, infringement of the child’s right to privacy, over-crowdedness, poor hygiene, and lack of medical care in asylum shelters.

“Education is just beyond reach in Syria,” a 15-year-old Syrian minor was quoted as stating.

Dozens of Palestinian children fleeing war-torn Syria have sought asylum in Germany, unaccompanied by their parents.

The number of Palestinians from Syria in Germany remains ambiguous as Palestinians are categorized as stateless refugees according to the German law.

The Geneva Convention stipulates that Germany grant nationality to those categorized as stateless refugees, in accordance with the German Nationality Law of 2000.
