In the draft resolution, after paragraph 3, insert the following paragraph:
“The Assembly insists on the importance of prevention strategies in the context of international migration. Action aimed at supporting certain countries, member states of the Council of Europe or others, in reinforcing social cohesion and in generating an environment allowing children to grow up in their home countries with a respectable quality of life and good perspectives for their personal development, should be included in the political agendas of all Council of Europe member states. In this context, the Assembly draws attention to its Resolution 1779 (2010) on co-operation between the Council of Europe and the Maghreb countries in the field of social cohesion, in which the Assembly suggested that non-member states of the Council of Europe, such as the Maghreb countries, be supported in their policies aimed at developing social cohesion, democratic structures and ensuring the full protection of human rights.”
In the draft resolution, at the end of paragraph 5.11, add the following sentence:

In the draft resolution, at the end of paragraph 5.13, add the following text:
“Moreover, unaccompanied children should be able to benefit from comprehensive programmes of child welfare.
