There are about 30–34 million children in the world fleeing conflict, many of whom are separated from their parents. How does this affect children’s lives? Is there a solution to protracted crises? In the discussion after the movie Lost and Found, we hear comments about the situation in the world’s largest refugee camp, Cox’s Bazar.

Experts discussing the subject are Jessica Möttö from UN Refugee Agency UNHCR and Manuel Marques Pereira from UN Migration Agency IOM. the discussion is moderated by Emma Rahikainen from the UN Children’s Fund UNICEF.

The discussion will be held in Finnish and in English.
