This case study aims to describe how municipalities within Skåne län in Sweden, comply with the Convention on the Rights of the Child in the reception of unaccompanied refugee children. It also aims to explain the variables which cause the different levels of compliance. In this research the reception will imply both municipalities’ decisions of whether a contract of receiving will be signed or not, and municipalities’ actual reception of these children.
The research is operated through qualitative methods, mainly by interviews. The empiric is further on analysed with the assistance of compliance and implementation theories. Through analyze the result is reached that municipalities without a contract of receiving fails in many areas to comply with the convention. Municipalities with an actual reception succeed better with the implementation of the treaty even though there are some deficits in the compliance. (Less)
