Children's lived rights: The everyday politics of asylum-seeking children till sidans topp

Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)

This thesis explores asylum-seeking children's everyday politics in relation to their situation in the Swedish reception system. It engages in a theorization of children's political agency in which a broad definition of politics is adopted to examine and acknowledge the politics embedded in children's everyday spaces and children's everyday actions. Methodologically, it draws on a one-year ethnographic fieldwork and participatory methods with 18 children aged 6-12 years in two institutional settings: the school and the asylum centre. The thesis involves three empirical studies, covering arenas that the children themselves identified as important in their everyday lives.

The first study explores the children's articulated standpoints on "home" underpinned by their experiences of an institutional housing lacking home-like conditions. It shows how the children's articulations identified spatial and relational conditions of "house" and "home" and how they criticized the asylum centre's regulated time-space, which denied them these conditions, for example, desired food practices, spaces for play, privacy and family life. Moreover, the children's experiences of living in an unsafe housing was reinforced through their lived fears, that is, their experiences of threats from the "Police" or "Security" and overly strict treatment from staff members of the "Reception" in addition to their fear of deportation. This study shows how the children's critique implicitly identified how their right to wellbeing in their housing was restricted or denied.

Europarådet 18-12-18:

Children in migration must be informed about their rights till sidans topp

Children in migration have the right to be informed about their rights. Such information is crucial for having their voice heard and enabling them to participate in procedures affecting them. These children, despite being one of the most vulnerable groups in Europe today, face barriers in access to information that is child-friendly and age-appropriate.

In response to these challenges, on the occasion of the International Migrants Day marked today, the Council of Europe, has launched the Handbook for frontline professional on how to convey child-friendly information to children in migration.

The Special Representative of the Secretary General on Migration and Refugees Tomá? Bo?ek said: "The protection of refugee and migrant children is a one of the priorities among the activities of the Council of Europe. Developed in the framework of the Action Plan on protecting refugee and migrant children, the handbook on child-friendly information is crucial for keeping children safe and able to access their rights. This handbook also addresses one of the main challenges countries are facing today," said.

The handbook includes examples of promising practices implemented around Europe, practical tips to highlight ways to implement this guidance in practice, specific situations or risk factors that would increase a child's vulnerability or increase the barriers in access to rights; questions children may have at different stages of their journey; children's recommendations; "golden rules" for each context.

Quotes from children, too, make part of the book. " In class, there are some who are a little embarrassed, others who are shy and others who are ashamed of not knowing. They feel stuck, blocked. Everyone has his story. There are some who are there, they are in class but in their head they are elsewhere. They think of their past. Sometimes people are scared, their situation is very complicated, it's not easy," - says 15-year-old Hafidjou.

The book is launched under the Strategy for the Rights of the Child (2016-2021).

EASO 18-12-19:

New EASO Guidance on reception conditions for unaccompanied children till sidans topp

EASO has published a new Guidance on reception conditions for unaccompanied children: operational standards and indicators.

This new EASO Guidance on reception conditions complements the first guidance published in September 2016, with a focus on unaccompanied children. The overall objective of this guidance is to support Member States in the implementation of key provisions of the Reception Conditions Directive, ensuring an adequate standard of living for unaccompanied children and taking into account their special reception needs.

This Guidance represents one of the key measures identified by the April 2017 "communication from the Commission to the European parliament and the Council on the protection of children in migration", which gave a mandate to EASO to develop "specific guidance on operational standards and indicators on material reception conditions for unaccompanied children, in addition to the guidance on reception conditions already developed (in 2016) that apply to all asylum seekers"

This second guidance describes the reception conditions of unaccompanied children as a particular vulnerable group, with partly the same chapters adapted to their special needs and some new chapters as they are specifically relevant for this target group like: information, participation and representation of the unaccompanied children; identification, assessments and response to special needs and safety risks; day-to-day care; staff and finally education, schooling and vocational training.

UNHCR december 2018:

I want to feel safe - Strengthening protection in reception of separated children till sidans topp

Strengthening child protection in the initial reception of unaccompanied and separated children in Sweden

This report is the outcome of the Child Protection project - also known as Co-Lab 2.0 - that was initiated in 2017 by UNHCR's Regional Representation for Northern Europe in reponse to the migration situation of 2015 when Sweden received an unprecedented number of unaccompanied and separated children on the move. In partnership with the Swedish policy lab, Förnyelselabbet, innovative design methods were used to explore how to strengthen child protection policies and procedures in the first days following their arrival. This period is the most critical in ensuring the long-term safety of the child, as decisions made here have a lasting impact on the children, their trust in the Swedish society, and their willingness to stay within the reception and child protection systems.

The essence of child protection - and the fundamental goal of this project - is to keep children safe, and to make them feel safe. Beyond their physical protection, this means ensuring that children are well-informed of their circumstances and have a say in matters that have an impact upon them. The main conclusion drawn from these extensive stakeholder consultations is that the reception system today does not adequately meet this basic need of newly arrived children in Sweden. Many of the reasons for this are the result of inherent structural and procedural gaps in the reception system that existed long before the migration situation of 2015.
