Abstract [en]

Unaccompanied asylum-seeking children coming to Sweden are almost all fleeing from violent or threatening situations in their home country and have been sent abroad for their protection. They form a specific growing group of children looked after by local authorities in kinship foster families, network foster families or traditional foster families, as well as in institutions (HVB-hem) or interim accommodation (Mellanbo) as preparation for independent living. This research study explores some daytime activities within social work for unaccompanied children at a support centre, Solitario. The centre existed for three years and some of the activities are now included in regular activities by the local authorities supporting unaccompanied children. The methods used in this study were 12 in-depth interviews with children, in-depth interviews with all staff at the centre and systematic longitudinal assessments performed by staff of 17 children attending the centre in 2009 as well as in 2011. The results show that there is a breakdown of the structures and communities that should support the unaccompanied child in the everyday life. There is not good enough cooperation and coproduction in supporting the best of the child in line with United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of the Child (UN CRC). The basic idea of UN CRC is that the child should be seen as an independent subject and actor. Because of their living situation, unaccompanied children are forced to take action and to do so independent of their microsystem – their nuclear family – or with just a trans-national support in web-based microsystem relationships.
