The European Research Center in Policies and Action on Minors and Migration (ERCPAMM / CEIPAMM) is an academic center formed by social scientists from various continents who have come together with the intention to progress in scientific knowledge, intervention practices, and the policies that affect migrant children accompanied and unaccompanied.
This Center was founded in December 2017 its origins being based on two facts: the peculiar socio-political location of the city of Melilla, which is one of the main known routes of entry of migrant minors, and the International Seminars on unaccompanied foreign minors that have been held at the UNED in Melilla since 2015. The CEIPAMM receives support from the Autonomous City of Melilla, basically from the Ministry of Social Welfare and the UNED of Melilla.
Most of the 16 countries represented are European along with American and North American countries. The target is to work on connecting the southernmost border of Europe with the rest of the continent to deepen in all kind of social and political issues related to these minors; work to achieve a national and European common criteria of reception and intervention with these minors.
Among other activities, the Center will organize semi-annual and annual meetings of experts on the subject, creating spaces for the exchange, progress, learning and improvement. The Center has strong links with important national and international associations that work on these topics.
