GIORDANO, Carlo. The recognition of the children migrant's project and the exploitation of the parental network in taking over the unaccompained minors migrants: the evolution of the care in the Municipality of Cremona (2005 - 2011). REMHU, Rev. Interdiscip. Mobil. Hum. [online]. 2014, vol.22, n.42, pp.97-112. ISSN 1980-8585.

The phenomenon of unaccompanied minors migrants occurred in Cremona, until 2007, only through their reception in residential facilities. This practice had to confront the critical issues (also economic) represented by the massive growth of arrivals, which occurred in Cremona in the years 2006 and 2007, of underage foreign migrants declaring "unaccompanied".The frequent presence of children's parental networks in the neighbouring cities led to the path of migration of unaccompanied minors arriving in Cremona. This was the result of a strategy devised by representatives adults which addressed the young immigrants towards those areas where the practices of reception seemed more effective with regards to the acquisition of the permit residency. The correlation between host and migratory strategy became evident. In 2008, the "familiar character" of the migration - for the most part of the unaccompanied minors - was recognized by the Social Services of Cremona. This was regarded as a resource for a more effective taking-over. This led to the identification of a strategy based on the care in some host families.
