This research focuses on substantive and procedural diagnostic conditions that must be fulfilled for a reliable assessment of the best interests of an asylum-seeking child. These Best Interests of the Child (BIC)-Assessments provide migration authorities with behavioural information about risks for the child’s development and mental health. After the development process, the BIC-Assessment was carried out with 16 unaccompanied children (15-18 years, M = 16.7) and 11 children who arrived in the Netherlands together with their parents (4-16 years, M = 9.6) (N = 27). The quality of the child-rearing environment in the country of origin before departure and the expected quality on return, were both low. A majority of the refugee children had social-emotional problems and trauma-related complaints.
