The administrative detention of migrant children in Switzerland and internationally

STATEMENT Terre des hommes is opposed to administrative detention of migrant children because it is never in their best interest. Non-custodial alternative measures must be implemented to guarantee that no human being under the age of 18 is placed in administrative detention. It is fundamental to systematically consider the implementation of alternatives to detention and avoid separating families.
