Refugee Children in Sweden do better in School than refugee children in Denmark
| Refugee children living in Sweden show the best school results, while Denmark and Finland demonstrate the poorest school results compared to the children in the general population.  

This is one of the conclusions of  the new research findings from the NordForsk financed project CAGE (Coming of Age in Exile) regarding Health, Education and Labour market affiliation of young refugees, and on how the different conditions and efforts in the Nordic countries affect their course of life.

  Overcoming barriers to social inclusion 
Historically Nordic cities have been characterised by low levels of segregation, but in recent years there has been growing concern about increasing disparities between population groups.

The main purpose of this report is to increase the knowledge base regarding how Nordic governments and municipalities seek to overcome barriers to social inclusion and to counteract inequality and segregation through policy and urban planning. It examines five thematic and geographical cases for inclusion.

New report on Unaccompanied minors
| In 2015, more than 96,000 unaccompanied child refugees applied for asylum in an EU country. Almost half of these children came to the Nordic countries.

This conference report gathers experiences that were presented at a collaboration meeting with Nordic authorities, politicians and researchers in September 2020. It focuses on four areas: mental illness, girls' special situation, unaccompanied minors who disappear and what happens when unaccompanied children turn 18.
The report is in Swedish.
