The geographical location of a placement may have some bearing on a young person’s experience. Many young people reported being isolated in communities where they have no contacts, friends or relevant refugee community organizations (Humphries & Mynott 2001; Stanley 2001). Although this sense of isolation may be common to all young people who have no contact with their own community, it may be more marked for young people living in unsupported and independent living arrangements, as they may be less likely to be involved in education or leisure pursuits.

I will further discuss how the principle of the child’s best interests is interpreted and how it is applied as a judicial principle in decisions about family reunion for unaccompanied minors. The article is based on my study of government policy and practice concerning unaccompanied minors in Norway carried out for the Norwegian Research Institute (NOVA). The study has a transnational perspective, concentrating on how the backgrounds and transnational family relations of child refugees are understood and handled in government policy.
