The purpose of this paper is to scrutinize the situation of the reception of unaccompanied children in Sweden and whether they get their rights satisfied during the asylum process. To see the phenomenon through different aspects the paper consists of legal, political and psychological perspective. In the search of an answer to my questions a description about how Swedish authorities working with unaccompanied children follow international and national laws and guidelines regarding the children will be outlined. The political unwillingness in the Swedish municipalities to receive unaccompanied children and its effects on the children is then to be followed.
My conclusions are that it is hard for Sweden to live up to all of those laws and guidelines concerning unaccompanied children. This is partly due to the political unwillingness that exists in the municipalities. The consequences of this are that the children don’t get all of their rights satisfied and many of the children have a psychological ill-health, which affects them negatively. (Less)
