Unaccompanied minors in Serbia
According to the law, whenever the police has an interaction with an unaccompanied minor, they should inform the social services, which should assign them a legal guardian. This does not always happen and unaccompanied minors are often treated in the same way as adults.

  • Pedro Arrupe House
    The Pedro Arrupe integration house is maintained by the Jesuit Refugee Service and provides accommodation for up to 20 unaccompanied minors. However, the procedure to get accepted to live in the house is quite complicated.

Right to education
All children under the age of 15 have the right to education regardless of their status. Which means all children should have access to a school. In case this gets refused, try to get in contact with Asylum Protection Centre or any other human rights organizations.
