Title:
The management of time and waiting by unaccompanied asylum-seeking girls in Finland
Authors:
Kohli, Ravi K.S.; Kaukko, Mervi
Abstract:
This article considers how asylum-seeking girls in residential care in Finland construct their everyday lives while waiting for asylum outcomes. These girls, from various African countries, are shown to experience waiting as both debilitating and productive. First, our findings confirm the established picture of asylum-seeking young people being in limbo, unable to influence the resolution of their claims. Second, we explore more hopeful ways in which they wait. We emphasize the complex responses and relationships they build in waiting times with each other and their carers. We suggest that waiting is not just ‘dead’ time, but is also lively in periods of uncertainty.

dc.description.noteIt looks like you've uploaded the final published version of this article, but the publisher won't allow us to use that (info at http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo/issn/0951-6328/). Do you have the post-print (ie final draft post-refereeing) - we could use that? Author resubmitted still with final published version - as is now well past 3 months from publication am going to pass metadata only to repository RVO 10/9/18-
