ANNEX The International Migration Law Unit of IOM recommends the Committee to advise States Parties of the Convention on the Rights of the Child to take the following actions in respect of children and migration: Ensure that national legislation is in accordance with international and regional human rights standards and that relevant legislation specifically sets out provisions on the rights of migrant children. Note that is strongly recommended that the actual implementation of those provisions are monitored and reported. Make explicit reference in the national legislation to the equal access to social rights and basic services for all children, irrespective of their migration status and remove any barriers to the attainment of these rights. Introduce the principle of non-detention of children in legislation and policy and formalize policies on alternatives to detention which are in accordance which human rights standards. Make explicit recognition of the right to birth registration of children born to irregular migrants and implement policies which raise awareness of this right, both for state officials and at the community level. Devote resources to develop movable registration facilities to increase access to birth registration in rural areas and for children born outside of hospitals. In accordance with the provisions of article 45(a) of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Committee should invite the Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of Migrants and the Special Rapporteur on the Sale of Children, Child Prostitution and Child Pornography to jointly conduct a Global Study on the transnational cooperation measures necessary to ensure the protection of children on the move and to guarantee their rights independently of their immigration status. Such a study should be guided by the Convention on the Rights of the Child and other relevant international standards and take full account of the recommendations adopted by the Committee at its September 2012 Day of General Discussion on The Rights of All Children in the Context of International Migration.
