LOPEZ ULLA, Juan Manuel. Detention of unaccompanied foreign minors in Europe: the need to effectively ensure recognized rights. REMHU, Rev. Interdiscip. Mobil. Hum. [online]. 2014, vol.22, n.42, pp.63-80. ISSN 1980-8585.

In several documents approved between 2010 and 2012, the Council of Europe and the European Union openly acknowledge that they have not taken sufficient measures to effectively guarantee the rights of unaccompanied foreign minors recognized by the United Nations Convention on the rights of the child in Europe (1989). Referring to the condition under which they can be detained, it urges the implementation of a common procedure capable of safeguarding the administrative and judicial protection of these minors.

Keywords : unaccompanied foreign minors in Europe; detention; inhuman or degrading treatment; interest of the child; European Court of Human Rights.
