Abstract: For the last two decades in Western Europe in general and Belgium in particular, it has been established that asylum seekers are no longer only adults but increasingly also unaccompanied minors. The latter category poses special problems. The current contribution discusses the legal position of the unaccompanied minor asylum seekers and some of the related bottlenecks; consideration can be given to determining the exact age, the protection of this particular group in the asylum procedure, the right of residence, the right to education, medical assistance and the right to health care, social security, etc. Finally, the specific administrative an judicial protection procedure for (minor) asylum seekers is analyzed and anumber of conclusions are drawn.”
