Regardless of whether it is about tens, hundreds or thousands of people arriving to the territory of a country, protection and treatment of unaccompanied and separated minors draw special attention and interest. Their position, protection modalities and available services have been subjects of the debates taking place not only within the international community, universal and regional systems, but also at national levels. In the Republic of Serbia and the Republic of Macedonia, for many years the issue of their position occupied the attention of only a small number of experts, while the occurrence of migrant-refugee crisis has actively involved greater number of actors in
providing care and reflections on the legislation that would regulate their treatment and available services.
