Public Services and Migrant Minors in Italy. Redefining skill for social work.

Risultato della ricerca: Chapter

Abstract

The increased presence of foreign minors in Italy demands the country to rethink and undertake a general reorganization of public social services, still responding more to emergency situations rather than promoting preventive interventions. The analysis of laws and policies on migrant integration shows how the increasing presence of migrant families with minors requires, first of all, a change in the legislative system. Moreover, the urgency for a significant investment in the training of social workers is felt, in particular on the methodologies used and the intercultural competencies required for the analyses of needs and the planning of interventions. In brief, a reorganization of welfare offer is needed today, to devise effective integration paths both for adults and minors.
