Abstract

This article addresses the pressing issue of street children and highlights the institutional dysfunction in task distribution for their care post-pandemic. The study, conducted in Gorontalo City, employs descriptive qualitative analysis, drawing data from Social Services, Manpower, Job Training Centers, Municipal Police (Satpol), street children, and the community through interviews and observations. Findings reveal a lack of effective coordination among state institutions responsible for handling street children, leading to community unrest. This research contributes by emphasizing the neglected dimension of task division in explaining institutional dysfunction in post-pandemic street children care.
