The importance of civil society for unaccompanied young people : in what way, to what extent and how important? (English)
Abstract [en]

The importance of civil society for unaccompanied young people - in what way, to what extent andhow important?The purpose of this study is to investigate the importance of civil society organizations and actorsfor unaccompanied young people who have a residence permit in Sweden through the New UpperSecondary School Act ( NGL) and are on their way to independence. When these young people turn18 and complete their upper secondary school studies they lose the security that our laws and rightsprovide a child in Sweden. Young people are losing the right to a trustee and the social services are nolonger responsible for the individual's housing and finances, reasons that are a great security for theseindividuals. These young people often lack a developed network that many Swedish young peoplehave.After school, there are requirements for a permanent job that must be followed in order to stay inSweden according to NGL, which comes with arranging housing and managing your finances. Thisfact is something that many of the actors in civil society have noticed and problematized.The study examines this by collecting material on how worried they are about the future, howimportant they state that civil society is for them, what degree of contact they have with organizationsand associations, and what efforts and what support they have received after they have filled 18 yearsfrom municipalities and from various actors in civil society.A quantitative questionnaire study was conducted, the results and analysis of which are based on 92questionnaire responses (59 completed questionnaires) of unaccompanied young people, of which 47have a residence permit through the new Upper Secondary School Act (NGL). The results of the studyshow that the importance of civil society organizations and actors is great, 83% of the respondentsstated that they were important to them. The study shows that as many as 63% of the respondents areworried about turning 18 and 90% are worried about the requirement for a permanent job afterschool.Our results and our analysis can show that the support of civil society is important for theseyoung people and can also be an important function for public activities to facilitate for these youngpeople now that many of them are graduating from upper secondary school in the spring of 2020.The corona epidemic that arose during the course of the study contributes to reinforcing theproblem with NGL's demands to be allowed to stay in Sweden with the fact that the unaccompaniednow have even more difficulty getting a job than they had before. This reinforces our issue andhighlights what civil society is problematizing as more acute than ever.
