  2. Identifying good practices in measures to support protection programmes for unaccompanied minors in third countries.
  3. Identifying best practices on child reception and protection, and in particular on issues such as procedures at first encounter, legal representation, appointment of a guardian, access to and adequacy of reception facilities, initial interviews, education and medical care.
  4. Identifying good practices in specific measures and procedural guarantees for unaccompanied minors in the EU.
  5. Evaluating the various experiences of combating the phenomenon of missing children and identifying best practices.
