Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka hur HVB-personal på olika hem i Stockholm arbetar med ensamkommande flyktingbarn rörande barnens kulturer och traditioner samt ta reda på hur personalen arbetar för att integrera flyktingbarn in i vad de upplever vara ett svenskt samhälle. Studien har även till syfte att ta reda på ifall HVB- personalen upplever att det finns problematik kring att integrera barnen samtidigt som de måste ta hänsyn till ursprunglig kultur och tradition hos barnen. Uppsatsen grundar sig i en kvalitativ ansats av tio intervjuer med personal som arbetar på olika HVB-hem. Med hjälp av de teoretiska begreppen gräsrotsbyråkratier, systemintegration, social integration, kultur, kulturmöte och kulturkrockar men även tidigare forskning visar resultat och analys ett sammanhängande mönster. Resultaten visade att HVB-personalen i hög grad värderar hänsynstagande till de ensamkommande flyktingbarnens/ ungdomarnas kulturer och traditioner under integreringsprocessen. De främst återkommande punkterna som personalen menar är viktigast att ta hänsyn till rörande kultur och tradition är barnens/ ungdomarnas; värderingar, religioner, högtider och ursprungliga språk.

HVB-personalen upplever att deras huvudsakliga mål som HVB-personal är att integrera barnen/ ungdomarna till det svenska samhället. Tillvägagångsätten för att integrera barnen beskrivs som ett vardagligt arbete som omfattar personalens engagemang i att vägleda, informera barnen/ ungdomarna om samhällets viktiga organ så som att gå i skolan eller att lära dem skillnaderna mellan rätt och fel enligt Sveriges normer och värderingar. Begreppet integrering handlar för våra respondenter sammanfattningsvis om att flyktingbarnen/ ungdomarna tar del av ett nytt samhälle och blir en del av det. Studien visade avslutningsvis att spänningar/ obalans kunde uppstå vid integreringen av barnen/ ungdomarna som resultat av kulturskillnader och kulturkrockar men även på grund av skilda tolkningar av arbetsuppgifter för personal.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to investigate how staff from residential care homes in Stockholm work with unaccompanied refugee children/ adolescents concerning the children's/ adolescents cultures and traditions. The study also aims to find out how the staff work to integrate refugee children/ adolescents into what they perceive to be a Swedish society. Lastly the study also aims to find out if the staff experienced problems concerning the integration of the children/ adolescents while they have to take their original culture and tradition into account.

The essay is based on a qualitative approach of ten interviews with staff working in different residential homes in Stockholm. With the help of the theoretical concepts grassroots bureaucracies, systems integration, social integration, culture, culture meeting and cultural clashes but also previous research showing results and analysis of a coherent pattern. Results showed that staff and their perceived values take into account of the unaccompanied refugee children/ adolescents different cultures and traditions during the integration process. Values, religions, traditions and the original language were described as the most important parts to take into consideration when focusing on the children’s/ adolescent’s cultures and traditions.

Approaches to integrate the children was described as a main objective and a casual work which includes staff involvement in guiding, informing the children/ adolescents of society's major institutions such as going to school or to teach them the difference between right and wrong according to Swedish standards and values. Further the concept of integration according to our respondents, means that the refugee children and adolescents take part of a new society and become a part of it. Finally, the study showed that stress or imbalance could arise during the integration of children/ adolescents as a result of perceived cultural differences and cultural conflicts but also because of different interpretations of the duties of staff.
