Short presentation

The focus of my research has been the conditions for unaccompanied children in Swedish asylum policy and procedure, as well as in relationship to the guardianship institute. I am currently examining the relationship between the "ideal" refugee child in migration law and different "tolerance" regulations aimed at children and youth who have been rejected asylum residency status but remain (such as "the High school act". I also have a general interest in integration aspects of social law.
