Summary of the project
phenomenon of unaccompanied minors, referred to their immigration, which
emerged quite some years ago in our cities, is one of the most significant
problems for local administrations The group of referring cities has given
the objective of consolidating and comparing good practices so as to reach
the finality of their possible repatriation within their family of origin.
The aims of the project are those of defining repatriation projects for
minors, comparing good practices among several European realities, training
local personnel so as to facilitate the performance of the project, comparing
the realities of the third party nations from which the minors come, international
confrontation to acquaint operators with the theme. The confrontation will
be developed on the following hot points of discussion:
The partner cities will carry out an analysis of their own present-day realities referred to the theme of programming unaccompanied minorsí repatriation projects, which can be carried out using steps/education projects making repatriation possible (where practicable) or suitable for the minorís requirements.. These steps must bear in mind the natural rights of the minor to grow up in his own family as well as guaranteeing him his fundamental right, that is, his right to physical and psychological integrity, his right to not become an object of exploitation, sale-purchase or some other illicit trade as well as his right to be educated in a context which doesnít prejudice his psycho-physical development.
meeting where collections will come information on the good practices with
the organization of a final event where results will be diffused.
The project previews three seminars where partners will participate, with local operators and some expert in the field. The seminars will keep in the winter 2007 (Lisbon 22-25 February), in the summer 2007 (Lubjana 6 - 9 September ) and the autumn 2007 (Milan October 25-28). Some observer cities will take part to the seminars to better diffuse the information and the good practices.
