In this paper I position the current two approaches that try to explain the in-crease of underage migration in the world. I expose their arguments and some challenges found to each perspective. As a contra argument to the independ-ency notion I propose an intersectional and integral perspective given by the child right base approach as the accurate way in understanding child migration.
