This chapter focuses on the rights of undocumented children in Europe. Lack of protection for the rights of undocumented children has become a prime concern for international organizations across the European Union. Legal discrimination has been identified as a major reason for the lack of equal opportunities provision for undocumented children. Local administrators’ abuse of power and bureaucratic practices are also considered barriers in accessing rights for undocumented children in Europe. The chapter concludes that, for undocumented migrant children, development healthcare, housing, and education access is important, and denying any one of these rights will have an adverse effect on all the others.

Keywords:   undocumented children, European Union, legal discrimination, local administrators, healthcare, housing, education
