The reality of migration, due to various causes, is a highly topical issue in Europe and, therefore, also in Spain and Melilla. In the last five years, southern Europe has become a receptive area for migrants from different areas of Africa, the Middle East and Asia. The profile of people arriving is very diverse in terms of ethnicity, culture, religion and social groups. Among these groups of people arriving in the city of Melilla, there are also unaccompanied foreign minors or young people, as well as broken families. Many of them are also refugees fleeing political repression, sexual conditions, wars, poverty and who do not have a responsible person, guardian or family member nearby to take care of them or guide them in their daily lives.
In this contextual framework, the dynamisation and treatment of problems by the university community, especially the students, can be of great help. Various contents that are included in the subjects of different departments on the Melilla campus (UGR) can be worked with these groups such as physical exercise through games, group dynamics through different educational methodologies, assessment and treatment of needs through an effective diagnosis, education for equality and peace, respect and social justice towards the needy, work with the elderly, psychological help, nutritional advice, adoption of healthy habits or knowledge and management of the family economy. All of this will benefit the integral development of vulnerable groups and, of course, the integration of this group with Melilla’s society so that their future is as good as possible and has a positive impact on our society.
