Children and youth with war experiences in institutional care
7 May 2018
A sociological study of young immigrants' stigma and social comparisons.
In war situations civilians are often direct targets of – and sometimes even participants – acts of war. Children and youth who have escaped war have directly or indirectly been involved in the war and as a result of this they will probably be affected over a large part or the rest of their life. The purpose of the study is to analyze narratives of children and youth that have experienced war, taken refuge in Sweden, and taken into custody and placed in institutions.
