: ”Maybe prostitution isn’t the first thing that comes to mind”: Social workers’ understanding of unaccompanied boys’ exploitation through prostitution (English)
Abstract [en]

Unaccompanied boys are at high risk to be exploited through prostitution which the social services are responsible to identify and give support. This study aimed to investigate how social workers in Dalarna understand and handle the issue of unaccompanied boys vulnerability and exploitation through prostitution. The result of the study was analyzed with intersectionality as theoretical frame of interpretation. This essay is based on a qualitative approach and was conducted by semi-structured interviews. The results showed that the respondents had limited experience of unaccompanied exploited through prostitution. A certain deflection of responsibility of the detection to any potential exploited is further noticed and also a stigmatizing perception of prostitution. The result further showed that the perception of intersectional power relations has an impact on the understanding of unaccompanied boys and their vulnerability to be exploited through prostitution.

Abstract [sv]

Ensamkommande pojkar är en högriskgrupp för att utsättas för prostitution vilka socialtjänsten ansvarar för att identifiera och stödja. Denna studie syftade till att undersöka hur socialsekreterare i Dalarna förstår och hanterar frågor om ensamkommande pojkars sårbarhet och utsatthet för prostitution. Resultatet analyserades med intersektionalitet som teoretisk tolkningsram. Uppsatsen utgick från en kvalitativ ansats och baserades på semistrukturerade intervjuer. Resultatet visade att respondenterna har begränsad erfarenhet av att möta ensamkommande pojkar utsatta för prostitution. Även en viss ansvarsförskjutning för uppmärksammandet av en eventuell utsatthet framkom samt stigmatiserande uppfattningar om prostitution. Resultatet visade även att uppfattningen om maktordningar påverkar socialsekreterares förståelse av ensamkommande pojkar och deras sårbarhet för att utsättas för prostitution.
