Refugee children is also on the global agenda. According to Eurostat, it was reported that 51% of 45,300 refugee children who arrive in the EU countries were of Afghan origin, while 16 percent were of Syrian descent. It was also reported that 70 percent of asylum applications in Germany, Sweden and Hungary were in this category. Hence children deserves a special attention in migration and refugee studies.
