Single asylum-seeking refugee children in Luleå municipality

Published: 26 April 2019

In 2018, a special opportunity was given for unaccompanied asylum-seeking refugee children to apply for a residence permit for studies through the new upper secondary school law. Luleå municipality decided to extend the possibility for the asylum-seeking refugee children who were affected by the law to remain in the municipality.

In connection with the decision to enable this group of mainly Afghan unaccompanied boys to stay in the municipality, Luleå municipality would also investigate which factors that affect these young people in the decision to remain in the municipality. In the survey, we also look at the experience of the support that both the municipality and civil society give this group of young people and what future dreams they carry. The project started in the autumn of 2018 and is planned to last for a few years.
