Newly arrived refugee youths and their first time in Sweden

My dissertation project is about newly arrived refugee youths and their experiences of the Swedish society. The first years in a new country is often an exposed and vulnerable period and a variety of welfare institutions are supposed to facilitate the establishment of this group of young people. Young peoples’ rights have been underlined in Swedish youth policy and a youth perspective is expected to permeate all societal interventions for young people in exposed life situations. In line with this it is important to study the experiences of newly arrived young persons and their opinions of the society that they meet as well as analysing their discretion during their first years in Sweden.
