In times of war, drought and population displacements, children become separated from their families. They may be lost, kidnapped, abandoned, or have fled for good reason. This book discusses how to trace these children's families and to reunite them where possible. It highlights the importance of assessing the best interests of the child, and of working with families and communities. It also covers: the principles and values behind family tracing; examples of good practice; the child's perspectives; suggestions for good documentation and follow-up work; and staff and funding issues. The book challenges emergency and development programmes to be child-centered. It argues that family tracing programmes are a bridge between relief and development work and important to both. With checklists, hints and tips, this text offers ideas and practical suggestions for anyone working with separated children.
