I strävan efter en hållbar framtid : Ensamkommande barn som blir egenföretagare i Sverige
Sammanfattning: Between the years 2010-2015 Sweden received well over 50 000 unaccompanied minors. Many of these young migrants, who arrived without any guardian, have faced numerous adversities and challenges both prior to, and during their journeys to Sweden. After their arrival in Sweden many of the unaccompanied minors are met with new challenges and adversities such as solitude, mistrust from the majority society and adapting to new school and labor market systems. However, in the face of these new adversities, it seems like unaccompanied minors - rather than young migrants who arrived with guardians - are better equipped to overcome and thrive from the new adversities (Çelikaksoy & Wadensjö, 2019). In this research we have specifically directed our focus to those unaccompanied minors who, after their arrival in Sweden, have started their own company. The aim for this study is therefore to explore entrepreneurship among young adults, who arrived in Sweden as unaccompanied minors. Furthermore we wish to examine how these young adults have faced imminent expectations from the majority society in Sweden and what impact entrepreneurship has had, when it comes to living up to these expectations. During the course of this study a handful of semi-structured interviews have been conducted with young adults between the ages of 20-27, who arrived in Sweden as unaccompanied minors. By using resilience and deservingness as our main theoretical approach to the collected data we come to conclusions which emphasize that entrepreneurship is a strategic trajectory for the unaccompanied minors to legitimate their intentions and prove their worth.
