Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to investigate and understand how seven young adults who came to Sweden as unaccompanied children have experienced their integration process after having been in Sweden for a few years, which factors enable and prevent successful integration. In the study, I have chosen a qualitative approach partly to get a deeper understanding and partly because I want to get out their subjective experiences of their integration. The analysis is based on relevant previous research and theories such as: Goffman's (2006) stigma theory, Kamalis (2006) "We" and "Them" and Diaz (1996) integration model. In conclusion, the results show that factors such as school, work social network, language, transnational network and a person who shares the same experience or speaks the same language are important for a successful integration. Having to wait a long time for PUT, prejudice, poor language skills and stigmatization was considered to be factors that hinder a successful integration. Some informants also considered the accommodation as an obstacle, as they experienced lack of support for their other needs.
