Rättsenlighet och ansvarstagande i de ensamkommande flyktingbarnens asylprocess

by Tanhan, Nagehan; Özer, Beatrix

Abstract (Summary)
Earlier this year the Swedish migration board gave a part of their responsibility for the separated children to those municipalities that have signed an agreement with them, so that the children can get the best handling of their matters and also to lift the heavy pressure of the Swedish migration board. Our aim in this paper is to see how this division is made and which areas of responsibility they have. We want to see how this process is being handled in relation to these children’s rights, the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Swedish law. To get the best information possible we used a qualitative method. We have in this study used reports written by voluntary organizations and the Swedish migration board. We have also used a few laws and interviewed people that have a central position in handling separated children. The study has shown that the Swedish migration board and the municipalities do not always fulfill the demands that the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Swedish law require.
