All of the interviewees were currently working with unaccompanied youth at HVB (homes for care or residence). The interviewees have different educations and prerequisites and they also have different experiences of working with unaccompanied youth or social work. The basic theoretical conceptions were normality, ethnicity and power. We have, on the basis of their differences, examined how they explain and talk about their own work with the integration of the unaccompanied youths and how they talk about the process. (Less)
