About the book
This publication explores the lives of young women and young men who have ventured into new lands to chase their dreams or to escape oppression, war, poverty or misfortune. It profiles the lives of young women and men from ten countries. Some have never migrated, but their lives are marked by the experiences of spouses or relatives who have moved abroad. The stories of the young people profiled exemplify those of millions of young women and men who cross borders every day. The report is meant to raise awareness about the need to develop responses that protect the human rights of young migrants, regardless of their place of origin, their sex, their age or their ethnic background.
