The translation of legal protection offered to undocumented children in Europe into effective child rights policies is examined in the chapter. Standards and treaties, including the International Bill of Rights, consisting of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), the International Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights (ICESR), and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), which offer protection for undocumented children, are discussed. The Rights of the Child (CRC), along with the Treaty of Lisbon, which are used as protective measures for undocumented children, are explored. Human rights, legal statelessness, and nationality issues of the undocumented children are also discussed.
