Unaccompanied refugee children - a major challenge for the schools
Umeå University, Faculty of Science and Technology, Department of Science and Mathematics Education. (UMSER)
2017 (English)Conference paper, Oral presentation only (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The presentation discusses issues related to integration of refugee children in Swedish school system. During the past ten years (2007-2016) over 62000 of asylum seeking unaccompanied children came to Sweden. These children are placed in different municipalities around the country that take responsibility for their education and socialisation. I argue that existing practice of introducing unaccompanied immigrant children into Swedish school system is built with multiple cultural barriers impeding success of their integration in Swedish society. Interviewed prospective teachers also recognise existing systemic problems in education of unaccompanied immigrant children and feel luck of instrumental intercultural competence to deal with such problems.
