Bhabha, J. and Crock. M. (2007). Seeking asylum alone. A Comparative Study of Laws, Policy and Practice in Australia, the U.K. and the U.S . 223 p. "This report compares and contrasts policy and practice in the three countries, highlighting points of divergence and examples of good practice as they emerge from the research. It describes the nature and scale of the migration of unaccompanied and separated children, and the reasons why children flee from their homes and travel alone, enduring the trauma of separation from family and the hardships of the journey to seek out a place of safety."

Bhabha, J., Finch, N. (2006). Seeking Asylum Alone. United Kingdom. Unaccompanied and Separated Children and Refugee Protection in the U.K.  214 p. "Thousands of unaccompanied or separated children arrive and claim asylum in the U.K. each year. Many of them survive arduous journeys from persecutors and war zones in a search for safety; some flee abusive treatment by family or close associates; others seek escape from human traffickers. This phenomenon presents a challenge to the Government and highlights its ambivalent attitude to international human rights law."

"Children seeking asylum alone today in the U.S. are trapped in a complex and inconsistent system that is detrimental to their needs.

Human Rights Watch (2008). Left to Survive. Systematic Failure to Protect Unaccompanied Migrant Children in Greece. 117 p. Some 1,000 unaccompanied migrant children who have entered Greece in 2008 without parents or caregivers struggle to survive without any state assistance. Although a member of the European Union, Greece flouts its most basic obligations when it comes to meeting the rights of these children, many of whom come from war-torn countries, including Afghanistan, Somalia, and Iraq, with special protection needs. This report documents the plight of the majority of unaccompanied children who have entered Greece and end up in a daily fight for survival.
