Qualitative methods were used to achieve the studies purpose and answer the research question.

The interviews showed that the participants in this study had difficulty in establishing contacts and experience lack of opportunity for natural meeting with Swedes. Many of the interviewees were disappointed in the authorities because they had been replaced several times in short period of times.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka ensamkommande barns upplevelser av deras integration i samhället. År 2015 kom det 35 369 ensamkommande barn till Sverige vilket har skapat en debatt kring ämnet. Genom flyktingvågen skapades ett behov av ett fungerade mottagande och integration. Studien syftar till att de ensamkommande barnens röst ska bli hörd och således öka förståelsen för deras syn på möjlighet till integration i samhället. Denna forskning utvärderar huvudfrågan: hur upplever ensamkommande barn sin möjlighet till integration? För att uppfylla studiens syfte och besvara forskningsfrågan har kvalitativ metod använts. Med hjälp av semistrukturerade intervjuer där fokus låg på språk, skola och kultur gavs intervjupersonerna möjlighet att själva sätta ord på sina upplevelser gällande integration. I intervjuerna framkom det att deltagarna i studien hade svårt att skapa kontakter med svenskfödda men också att man inte upplevde att det gavs möjlighet för naturliga möten med svenskfödda. Många av intervjupersonerna var också besvikna på myndigheter då dem blivit omplacerade flera gånger under korta tidsperioder. Resultatet analyserades med hjälp av begreppen social identitet, socialt kapital och inkludering/exkludering. En slutsats är att barnen behöver stabilitet i livet för att ha viljan att integreras och se ljust på sin framtid.
