What did children of migrants experience when their parents lost their jobs during COVID-19? UNICEF and the Commissioner of Uzbekistan for Children’s Rights (Ombudsperson) conducted a study within the EU-funded cross-regional project “Protecting children affected by migration in Southeast, South and Central Asia”, by adapting the Common Framework of Reference on Child Rights Impact Assessment (CFR) developed by the European Network of Ombudspersons for Children (ENOC).
