Children's lived rights: The everyday politics of asylum-seeking children
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.
