Debate in the Chamber of Local Authorities: “The reception of unaccompanied child migrants in European cities”
On 29 March 2017 the Chamber of Local Authorities of the Congress held a debate on “The reception of unaccompanied child migrants in European cities”, highlighting the difficult position of mayors, who become the “guardians” of these unaccompanied young people, whom they must protect and help to become integrated in the host society.
The participants underlined the lack of solidarity between European countries and the need for member states to provide greater financial support. The problems mentioned included the insufficient number of interpreters, the risks linked to sexual exploitation and violence, and the fact that reception facilities were full to overflowing. In the light of these challenges, several positive local initiatives were presented, for example the assistance and training offered to young people arriving in cities until they come of age and families who were willing to take in children.
