To meet the Swedish society : A qualitative study of unaccompanied refugee children's integration process (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to understand how the unaccompanied children are introduced to the Swedish society with its norms and for the child new and different ways of life. To seek this information we have interviewed a number of social workers who are working with these children, to gather their perspective in this matter. Our main questions have been to examine in what way the staff works with introducing the children to the Swedish society, and if there are any factors that they believe are especially important for the children's introduction. We have analyzed the results from the interviews by proceeding theory of stigma and power. The results show that the social workers find introduction as important for the children to be able to handle their new situation in Sweden. They find that important factors for their introduction in the society are activities in school and leisure time to develop their Swedish language abilities. Other factors are mental health, were they live, and how they are treated in different situations. They point out the importance of having something to do and meet other children, in order to distract the thoughts of the terrible events that the children have been involved with, and carrying with them in their minds. It is important that the children get the help they need to process the traumatic experiences they carry. Also during the study, we observed that power is something that is constantly present in all areas in the children's life.
