The project partners of Mind the Children have managed to create an impact combining their different expertise. Investigative stories have raised awareness for the issue of missing migrant children in Europe, and have revealed the malfunctions in governmental asylum systems. Some of these revelations have resulted in political response.
Examples of impact
