The role of quality care in encouraging children and youth on the move in Europe to seek support in protected spaces

The hypothesis that quality of care, and the child’s perception thereof, matter in the prevention of children going missing has recently gained support. That the reasons for children and youth leaving reception facilities are more diverse than the aim to move on has been reconfirmed in the wake of the refugee crisis, where children disappeared from countries of destination and where the closure of the Greek border saw children leave one reception facility to join another.
