From settlement to adult life
A study of the service chain for unaccompanied minor refugees.
The research project will provide up-to-date knowledge about the services offered to young refugees who have come as unaccompanied minors and who have achieved residency in Norway.
Young refugees will be resettled in a municipality by the immigration authorities in collaboration with the local welfare authorities. We will investigate routines for settlement and how the services (housing facilities, education, health etc) are organized in different municipalities.
More specifically, we will consider the importance of the municipality's choice of responsible administration unit (child welfare service, NAV, the refugee service, etc.) for the chain of measures, resources and cooperation. Further, the study will investigate service providers' practices and understandings, as well as the young refugees’ own experience of settlement and transition to adult life. The study consists of four work packages.
