From the Spanish Civil war to the boat people of Vietnam, children have been tragically separated from their families in emergencies. This study summarizes the kinds of separations, their causes, and the responses of national, international and voluntary organizations. It draws on historical, psychological and legal perspectives to recount nine 20th-century crises. It looks at the powerful psychological effects of family separations, and describes present legal protections for the children in comparative and international law. The authors present a comprehensive set of recommendations for international treatment of children separated from their families, addressing all the major policy issues which have faced governments, international organizations and volunteers in successive crises.show more
