MYAN is working with UNHCR Headquarters in Geneva to update their Integration Handbook, focusing on Chapter 3.3 Investing in the future: children and youth. As part of this project, MYAN is running consultations with young people from refugee backgrounds in Australia, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Canada, Germany and the United States of America to capture the voices of young people and ensure their feedback informs the development of any new content. These consultations will be conducted in a variety of ways including face-to-face, via skype (group and individual) and via a survey.
This is a great opportunity for young people to have their voices heard internationally. UNHCR will learn directly from young people about what they need when they settle in new countries. This information will be used to develop policy programs that address the rights and needs of young people in the settlement and integration context.
