Abstract [en]

The paper aims to examine how well a small group unaccompanied children have established themselves in Swedish society. In order to determine how well they have established the empirical material which is primarily based on quantitative data has been measured with a theoretical model developed by the theorists Nancy Fraser and Alistair Ager and Alison Strang. Based on the theoretical framework the unaccompanied children establishments have been measured in example income, education, debts with Kronofogdemyndigheten and social network. It was found that the unaccompanied children had not achieved the establishment in the society that was expected from the theoretical framework. Their results were also generally below the national average for young adults in Sweden who are the same age. The empirical data indicates that the unaccompanied children have a delay in the Swedish school system, which also implies a delay in the establishment of the Swedish labor market. Furthermore, the essay question whether a measurement of the establishment shall be fair, consider the conditions the unaccompanied children are given after their arrival in Sweden and also what is reasonable to expect of them.
