In our first Voice of the Child podcast, Lord Dubs takes us from the House of Lords to the appalling conditions inside some of Europe’s refugee camps, as he fights for child refugees to be reunited with their families in the UK.

In a dramatic stand-off last month between ministers and peers, an amendment to the EU Withdrawal Bill by Lord Dubs ensuring children fleeing war and conflict would be guaranteed a safe pathway to join family members already in Britain, was approved by the House of Lords. But the amendment was then set aside by a final vote in the Commons.

In this interview Lord Dubs talks about the heartbreaking experiences of children in migrant camps, why he’s critical of alternative proposals for child refugees, and his concern that the government is weaponising rising anti-immigrant sentiment in Britain.
