Abstract [en]

In 2014 about 7000 unaccompanied minors applied for asylum in Sweden and a great part of them were allowed to stay. Thus Sweden is one of the countries receiving the highest number of unaccompanied children in Europe. Previous research has shown that individuals with out-of-home care experiences belong to a vulnerable group. Besides that, young people with a migrant background sometimes experienced exclusion and discrimination. This study aims to explore social workers’ understanding of the unaccompanied youths’ minority backgrounds in relation to the process of leaving care. With a qualitative approach, data have been collected through focus groups at two residential care units. Within this kind of human service organizations (HSO), the staff struggle with meeting the perceived needs of the youths based on their minority background. Alongside, they are trying to teach what they consider as being good Swedish practices claimed to be necessary when facing life outside care. A transnational perspective prevents an understanding of the unaccompanied youths’ context as static, but rather promotes a way of relating to the youths in past and present times in order to be prepared for the future.
