Current Project: Unaccompanied Minors in Sweden: This project is funded by the European Refugee Fund and is based on anonymized data constructed from different sources consisting of the whole population of unaccompanied minors in Sweden on a yearly basis over a period of ten years.This project addresses the short and long term outcomes and conditions of unaccompanied minors arriving to Sweden to seek asylum. Children under 18 years of age who are outside their country of origin and separated from both parents and their legal/customary caregiver are defined as separated children. The first part of the project focuses on analyzing and describing this group and this type of migratory flow, where the second part of the project focuses on the outcomes of this group mainly in relation to how well they can develop and are able to access institutions in the destination country. The main areas of focus are education, employment, housing, health and family, as well as migration and naturalization patterns.
