Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine social workers ability to respond to unaccompanied children’s individual needs and circumstances. The study is based on semi-structured qualitative interviews with three social workers. The results have been interpreted with previous research findings and a theoretical perspective based on bureaucracy’s influence on client relations. The results show that social workers possibility to investigate unaccompanied children’s needs and circumstances are limited due to limited information sources, cultural and linguistic differences and children’s mistrust in government agencies. There is also reason to believe that the research method BBIC isn’t fully adapted to the target group. Social workers are limited in their ability to respond to unaccompanied children’s individual housing needs, due to a lack of living accommodations. Another finding is that Swedens municipalities differ in the way they handle unaccompanied children’s matters, which may affect the wellbeing of these children.
