Sammanfattning: Title: A qualitative study of unaccompanied children’s experiences of Swedish social services. Authors: Sanela Eminovic and Edina Mulic Supervisor: Lupita Svensson The primary purpose of this study is to illuminate and increase knowledge on the relationship between unaccompanied children and Swedish social services. The study addresses three main subjects: When looking back on their first meeting with a Swedish social worker, how did the unaccompanied children experience the first meeting? Second, how do they experience their continuous contact with their social worker? And lastly, what is their definition of a “good” social worker? To examine these three questions, the method used was was qualitative focus group interviews with unaccompanied children. The interviews were then analyzed using already existent research on unaccompanied children and system theory. The main results of the study shows that the relationship unaccompanied children have with their social worker differ, from good to not so good. The majority of the interviewed children described their first meeting as stressful and nervous. They had difficulties of separating social services and the immigration office. The continuous contact with their social worker depended on which social worker they got: some were, according to the children, “good” and some were “bad”. And, what is a “good” social worker? The results showed that a good social worker is one that listens, kept their promises, helped the children with reuniting with their families and included them in decisions regarding their living situation.
