The Board of Research and Implementation of the Children and War Foundation has over a long time been concerned about the plight of children and adolescents escaping dangerous and dehumanising life situations to seek a better future. In country after country it has been documented that their already difficult situation is made worse by the way they are met. As professionals we cannot passively accept that our policies regarding this group can create or increase mental health problems. We need to minimize further harm by formulating more humane policies.
