Unaccompanied underage asylum seekers: repatriation and departure for unknown destinations; national policy and local practice

Summary

The general research question was this: What is the frequency of occurrence of repatriation to the country of origin and departure for unknown destinations ('MOB') from the Underage Asylum Seekers repatriation units, and can any connection be made with the activities undertaken by the organisations involved to promote repatriation to the country of origin and prevent MOB? Which other factors, such as the youngsters' backgrounds, their motivation towards repatriation and practical possibillities (or impossibillities) play a part in this?
