Insecure Identities: Unaccompanied Minors as Refugees in Hamburg
Schroeder, Joachim
Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Bulgarian Comparative Education Society (10th, Kyustendil, Bulgaria, Jun 12-15, 2012)
This paper analyses the financial circumstances and social income of nearly one hundred unaccompanied minors who have come to Hamburg as refugees from various regions of Africa. It is based on extensive qualitative surveys, analysing their objective conditions of life and in particular their legal situation. A wide range of interview material and participative observations were used to obtain information on biographic courses and school and vocational careers of the young refugees over a period which extended to ten years in some cases, giving very detailed insights into their "hidden lives".
