This article examines how unaccompanied young refugees in Sweden relate to and talk about their everyday lives and life plans during a time of transition from childhood to adulthood.
Based on three waves of semi-structured interviews, this longitudinal qualitative study aims to understand the transition from out-of-home care (OHC; foster care, residential care) to independent adulthood, for a group of Swedish care leavers aged 16 to 20 years.
This study’s objective was (1) to investigate if having parent(s) born outside of Europe has an additional effect on the risk of entry into out-of-home care (OHC) in cases of alleged parental physical violence against children, and (2) to discuss potential empirical support for the risk model and the bias model for explaining the over-representation.

The aim of this study was to investigate counselors’ and caregivers’ experiences with Project Support (PS) in Sweden, a program designed for families with children who have been exposed to intimate partner violence (IPV).
This paper is divided into two parts: The first details the evidence from the ground, painting the picture of life for children during the pandemic in different European countries with statistics and examples, and giving a set of recommendations on measures that national governments across Europe can take to help protect children from the worst impacts of the crisis relating to the economic impacts on families, loss of services, access to education and targeted measures for children in migration. The second part focuses on recommendations to the EU institutions on how EU policy and funding can support and complement these national-level actions in these challenging times.
For this study, the researchers interviewed unaccompanied minor refugees (UMRs) in two youth asylum-centres in rural Sweden.
In order to be better equipped to design interventions aimed at improving the educational outcomes of children for whom society has assumed responsibility, this study seeks to further our understanding about which factors that contribute to the educational disparities throughout the life course.
