Sergio Cepero Espinosa, Laila Mohamed Mohand, Lucía Herrera Torres

Resumen


Para intervenir eficazmente con cualquier muestra o grupo poblacional, es necesario conocer tanto sus características específicas (dadas por la cultura, el espacio y el tiempo en el que se localizan los sujetos), como las características generales que comparte con el resto de sujetos de su colectivo; ya sea en el mismo país o continente, e incluso, a nivel mundial.

Este trabajo pretende comparar a nivel teórico los rasgos que definen a los niños de la calle de la ciudad de Ceuta con algunas de las características básicas que delimitan e interrelacionan a los niños de la calle tanto en los países en desarrollo como desarrollados.

ABSTRACT

In order to intervene successfully in any sample or population group, it is necessary to know its specific characteristics ( deriving from its own culture and geographical space), as well as the general characteristics it shares with other members of its population group, whether it be in the same country or continent (for example, in the case of the street children of the Americas), or even at the worldwide level.

This article seeks to achieve the following objective: to compare at the theoretical level the characteristics of the street children of Ceuta (Spain) to some of the characteristics which define and interrelate street children both in developing and developed countries.
