    • Children on the Run: An Analysis of First-Hand Accounts from Children Fleeing Central America


      from Migration Policy Institute Added 257 1 0

      This Migration Policy Institute event with UN High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres features findings from UNHCR’s report, "Children on the Run," which examines the increasing numbers of children from Central America and Mexico who head off alone to find refuge in the United States, fleeing violence, insecurity, and abuse in their communities and at home. The panel moderated by Kathleen Newland, Director of the Refugee Protection and Migrants, Migration, and Development Programs at MPI, also includes speakers Javier Sagredo, an advisor in the UN Development Programme's Regional Bureau for Latin America and the Caribbean, and Leslie E. Vélez, UNHCR Senior Protection Officer. A troubling new trend has emerged among those seeking asylum: the number of children making the treacherous journey alone and unaccompanied from Mexico and the countries of Central America—particularly El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala—has doubled each year since 2010. And the U.S. government estimates 60,000 children will reach U.S. soil this fiscal year in search of safe haven. This discussion surrounding the UNHCR study, which was based on interviews that a team of researchers did with more than 400 unaccompanied children, analyzes the reasons behind the growing migration of this vulnerable population and makes recommendations for a way forward. The UNHCR report is available online here: http://www.unhcrwashington.org/sites/default/files/UAC_UNHCR_Children%20on%20the%20Run_Full%20Report.pdf

              The transformers – companies going from offline to online with a smile Some traditional companies embrace digital opportunities and make digital part of their DNA while most fail miserably and see new entrants disrupt the old playing field. Keynote by: Jesper Kärrbrink, CEO of Eniro, one of Europe’s most progressive classifieds companies, former CEO of Svenska Spel and author of criminal novels. Panel: Sara Öhrvall, Head of Bonnier R&D (Sweden), Jesper Kärrbrink, CEO Eniro (Sweden) and Claudia Gonzalez, United Nations expert on social marketing and the former marketing director of the World Economic forum (US). Marketing is dead long live marketing The art of marketing is rapidly evolving into becoming the science of marketing fuelled by advertising technology, analytics and digital alternatives. But as the users formally know as “consumers” get more empowered, marketing directors and communications professionals face a new paradigm where honesty, relevance, creativity and knowledge will separate the winners from the ones not knowing what hit them. Keynote: Steven Overman, founder of the Realtime Project, communications pioneer including Lowe Worldwide Global Strategy director for IPG Team Nokia as one of the enthusiast behind Wired Magazine as well as in many other innovative teams.
