Children who come themselves to Sweden. A study of the construc-tion ”refugeechild”. (English)
Children who have fled to Sweden, without their parents or guardians, have been a controversial subject during the winter of 2002. Their situations on refugeestations and the responsibiliy by community and the state have been discussed. My composition is about these children. The composition is not about the situations of the children - focus is instead on the people who operate with the children; community, state and organisations. I want to find empirical levels which show what the children associate with. I have found three levels that I have called: "A institutional refugee", "To be refugee - a problem which must be solved "and "Child or refugee?". These levels contains different subjects as laws, cultural, living and childhood wich together make a picture about what the "refugeechild" means to those who figure in my composition. I have been inspired by discourse, postcolonialism and nationalism. I want to understand why the term "refugeechild", in my sence has a meaning of a duel between a discourse about"children"and"refugees".
