What is considered being the best inters of the child child has many different contexts, and there are different suggestions on how it should be taken into account. Is there one right way, or are there many different ways to consider as the best for a child? A qualitative approach has been used in order to reach the results of this study. The paper is made of semi structured interviews by five social workers, and their experiences as well as their reasoning regarding what is seen as the best interest of the child. The respondents in the paper are all social workers experienced and working with unaccompanied refugee children. The collected material has been analyzed from a cultural perspective, social constructive perspective, as well as ecology of human development. The material states that there is no denomination on what the best interest of a child implies. The meaning of what the best interest of the child depends completely on the way one interpret the concept, and also the environment every separate child is in. All individuals have different needs and every need differentiate itself from micro- to macro levels, which means that every individuals need is different in relation to other individuals need, as well as each country have different needs. The best interest of a child is a combination of what is considered to be the most positive and fortunate for each child's development.
