Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to see what obstacles and opportunities the staff on a residence for unaccompanied children experience when trying to integrate these children into the Swedish society. I was also interested in how the integration of these children worked.

 

I have interviewed the staff with a qualitative method. The result was analyzed with the help of Diaz integration theory and Bauman´s theory "us and them", and also with the previous research in the subject.

 

My conclusion is that integration is a complicated concept that is experienced and interpreted individually. There are both obstacles and opportunities in the work with the integration of unaccompanied children. The result shows me that the schools’ role and the legal guardians function should have been better planned and framed from the start. The asylumprocess takes a lot of time and energy from the children and they react in different ways. These children have a huge need of trust which also relate to the asylumprocess. Generally speaking, the treatment from the local community and the authorities has been good.

 

I choose to call this study "Between two worlds" because that is where the children find themselves.
