This chapter analyzes the undocumented children’s population living in Italy, along with the problems it faces. These children have incomplete documents and are denied access to basic rights such as education and health services. Inconsistencies between child rights protection and migration control affecting the laws and policies on undocumented children in Italy are explored, along with examples such as the treatment of children with undocumented parents and the return of separated children. Changes in laws and policies are recommended for the protection of undocumented children’s rights, promoting undocumented children’s registration and documentation, and building trusting relationships with undocumented children and their families.

Keywords:   undocumented children, child rights protection, migration control, migration law, Italy
