Irregular migration is gaining traction as one of the top humanitarian issues worldwide. Children and adolescents that cross the external borders of the European Union in an irregular way without the company of any adult, are exposed to violent radicalisation or other forms of organized criminalization.
The second particularly vulnerable group that raises new wedge challenges in the current context, concerning national or European, are the returnees, a growing group of European nationals who moved to areas of armed conflict (Iraq, Sahel, Syria, Afghanistan) and that, participating or not in terrorist acts, they return well to their countries of origin well to other Member States of the EU after experiencing a process of radicalization, which obliges to take preventive measures and of reintegration.
