This chapter examines the interpretation of international and national laws meant for protecting migrant children by Spanish authorities, as well as the ineffectiveness of the forced repatriation of the unaccompanied and separated children, especially North Africans under Spanish policy. It explains various strategies developed by national and regional Spanish authorities to exclude the unaccompanied and separated children from the protection systems to which they are entitled. The chapter presents recommendations for Spanish national legislation and central authorities for adequate care and treatment of unaccompanied and separated children. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and the Committee on the Rights of the Child (CRC) recommendations for the determination process of unaccompanied and separated children are also presented.
