“Beyond survival. How to improve the intervention in Europe with unaccompanied and separated migrant children who are left outside the protection system”, by F. Javier Romeo and Pepa Horno for UNICEF

[Read the English version clicking here.]

Unaccompanied and separated migrant children face multiple difficulties. Like boys and girls, they are not usually heard. As immigrants, it is often considered that “they have fewer rights. Like boys and girls without affective references, they have to face the lack of protection on the part of the institutions that should protect them. And as boys and girls who are left outside the protection system and who can sometimes resort to any way of life to survive, they are often the target of hate speech and narratives that dehumanize them. But, We need to remember that they are boys and girls who have suffered adverse experiences and who deserve safe interventions that guarantee their human rights.

As a contribution to consolidate solid interventions and respectful narratives, We are proud to present this document that we have prepared from Espirales Consultoría de Infancia:

Although the two of us, F. Javier Romeo and Pepa Horno we are its authors, This publication tries to collect all the findings of the International Workshop that took place in Madrid in December 2019, that Javier helped facilitate. We had the contributions of specialists from Spain, French, Belgium, Denmark, Italy, Norway, Netherlands and Sweden in Europe and Morocco in Africa. We also have the coordination of UNICEF Spain and UNICEF France, with the support of UNICEF's PFP Division. Our thanks for everything you shared., for their knowledge and for their experience. We hope the document will honor your generosity and commitment..

We have structured the text with three goals in mind, each of which is addressed in a chapter:

  1. Be clear about the “Fundamental principles and main risks faced by unaccompanied and separated children living on the street”.
  2. Get a complete perspective on a “Call to action: towards an integrative model of intervention for the care and protection of unaccompanied boys and girls living on the street”, exploring four levels of intervention (address legal and documentation aspects; promote and develop safe and protective environments; provide affective references to boys and girls; and build new narratives with and about unaccompanied migrant children living on the street).
  3. Provide inspiration through “Selected positive practices”, a compilation of specific interventions and programs that have worked at each of the levels proposed in the Chapter 2.

We hope that this document will help professionals and activists to develop new narratives and increasingly comprehensive interventions.. In this way, it will be possible to ensure that these children have full access to their rights., as the title says, beyond survival.

“Beyond Survival. Improving intervention in Europe with Unaccompanied and Separated Migrant Children who fall through the protection system”, by F. Javier Romeo and Pepa Horno for UNICEF

[Click here to read the Spanish version].

Unaccompanied and Separated Migrant Children face multiple difficulties. As children, they are seldom listened to. As migrants, they are considered as “with less rights”. As children without affective referents, they face defencelessness from the official institutions that should protect them. And as children that fall through the protection system and that can sometimes resort to any way of living in order to survive, they are often the target of hate speech and dehumanizing narratives. However, we need to remember that they are children who have suffered severe experiences and who deserve safe interventions that ensure their human rights.

As a contribution for the consolidation of sound interventions and respectful narratives, we are proud to present this document that we have elaborated from Espirales Consultoría de Infancia:

Although we, F. Javier Romeo and Pepa Horno are its authors, this publication tries to summarize all the findings of the International Workshop held in Madrid in December 2019, that Javier co-facilitated. We had the inputs of experts from Spain, France, Belgium, Denmark, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway and Sweden in Europe and Morocco in Africa. We also counted with the coordination from UNICEF Spain and UNICEF France, with the support of the UNICEF PFP Division. We are grateful to all their sharings, their knowledge and their experience. We hope that the document will be able to honour their generousity and their commitment.

We have created this text with three goals in mind. They are addressed in each of the chapters:

  1. Having clarity about the “Key principles and risks faced by unaccompanied and separated children living in the street.”
  2. Envisioning a “Call for action: towards an integrative model of intervention for the care and protection of unaccompanied children in the street,” exploring four levels of intervention (addressing documentation and legal aspects; ensuring safe and protective environments; providing affective references; and building new narratives with and about unaccompanied migrant children living in the streets).
  3. Providing inspiration with “Selected positive practice,” a collection of specific programmes and interventions that have worked for each of the levels proposed in Chapter 2.

We hope that this document will help professionals and activists to develop new narratives and more integrated interventions. Those narratives will ensure that these children have full access to all their rights, as the title goes, beyond survival.

Global survey on violence against children “Towards a World Without Violence”

One of the problems we encounter when working in child protection, and adolescents from violence is the conceptualization. Different positions have different concepts of what violence, and specifically what constitutes violence against children. It is a complex issue, in which positions can be based on personal views, cultural beliefs and superficial visions of violence and its consequences. So guides have agreed internationally always provides something solid on which to start building.

Advising on these weeks to an entity that wants to measure violence experienced by children, and adolescents with whom you work I referred to the interesting document Towards a World Without Violence. Global survey on violence against children (Toward a World Free From Violence. Global Survey on Violence Against Children, its full title in English), coordinated by Office of the Special Representative of the Secretary General of the United Nations on Violence Against Children. In the most recent data it collected (It was published in late 2013) worldwide on violence against children, as it is estimated that between 500 million and 1500 millions of children suffer some form of violence, or the cost of child maltreatment accumulated throughout life is about 124.000 million US dollars annually what includes, eg, the cost related to medical care, Social Protection, the justice system and lost productivity (You can read more details of the economic cost of violence in various countries in the page 19 of complete study in English). But there are also encouraging details, as the increased visibility of this phenomenon and to take measures in this regard in many countries, and as the European Union estimates that Each euro invested in prevention of violence produces a social performance 87 EUR (also on page 19 of complete study in English). Technically very interesting guidance is provided regarding the collection of data, especially pages 81 and 87 of complete study in English.

It is very useful the summary version in Castilian, collecting general data, major progress, the main concerns and challenges and general recommendations including that “Governments must recognize the importance of collecting disaggregated data on violence against children” (in the page 10 of summary).

I hope you find it of interest.

Report “Children and Justice” de Save the Children

With some delay with respect to publication, from Spirals CI want to echo this report “Children and Justice” published by Save the Children on last December.

The report “Children and Justice” developed by Save the Children analyzed the legislative framework of the Spanish state on child rights and protection standards developed internationally.

This report contains an extensive analysis of the difficulties of the Spanish justice system to suit the specific needs of children and denounces the distance between the standards set internationally binding on our state and the procedural action that is taking place , Nina the teenage.

The report focuses on the problems that the organization has complained and they made suggestions for improvement and demands urgent intervention in some cases.

It is recommended and required reading for all professionals working in the field of childhood, especially in administrative and judicial. The full report can be downloaded here.

We hope that the questions raised have their institutional eco.

In the coming weeks we will be tele-teaching “Child trafficking, children and adolescents for sexual exploitation: Comprehensive care for victims” of General Directorate of Social Policy, of Families and Children Ministry of Health, Social Policy and Equality for the materials we design 2010.

One of the materials we recommend is this video released by Red NNACE UNICEF Ecuador on child trafficking, children and adolescents for sexual exploitation.

This video brings together the voices of several teenagers who tell how they became sexually exploited in your country, Ecuador, how they lived and what they want to do once they have been rescued.

We hope this video will help create awareness of a broader problem, and which speaks so little.

How we learn to look at different

One of the last projects I worked on before leaving Save the Children was the investigation “The perception of children living in Spain for children of foreign origin” has been released recently.

I believe that this research contains some very significant facts. Some surprise data and other, especially those working directly with children, and adolescents, perhaps they endorse them intuitions that already had beforehand about how stereotypes and prejudices are created and formed in the process of socialization and education of children.

I want to highlight two of these data. The first, The younger children base their relationships and their perceptions of friendship and coexistence. Criteria used to evaluate the new children who know little or nothing to do with their country of origin, their ethnicity or race. It appears later when all the stereotypes.

Similarly, when appearing after, the contents of these stereotypes were also expected on the different nationalities of children, and some common ideas associated with any child home extrajero: a minority, low social class and family problems associated with.

In any case, is a document from Spiral Consulting quiet recommend reading Children.
