Abstract [en]

This study is an investigation of newly arrived young Iraqis and their view on obstacles and opportunities available in a secondary school in Södertälje City. This is also a comparative study between the newly arrived Iraqis schooling in Iraq and in Sweden. We have used theoretical concepts such as culture, ethnicity, refugee, intercultural education, socialization and PTSD. These have helped us to provide distinct guidelines when we analyze newly arrived young Iraqis in Södertälje City. Our approach has been based on qualitative interviews with both students and teachers. We have concluded that the Iraqi students that we interviewed did not feel that there were opportunities in the Iraqi school, but obstacles did exist. However, we discovered that all students experienced a lot of opportunities and some obstacles in the Swedish school. In our final discussion, we concluded that the Swedish school should invest more time and resources for newly arrived refugees with traumatic backgrounds.
