© 2018, Universidad Pontificia de Comillas. In the last decade, millions of people in the world have been displaced by the violence of their places of origin, increasing the demand for international asylum. Faced with this situation, the European countries have hardened their migration policies, increasing the number of people who stay under the condition of asylum seekers. This article seek to identify, from a qualitative study 2013 in Bodo (Norway), limits on the processes of resilience of the population in this condition; from the individual, exploring their ways of life in the place of arrival and constraints offering care policy; and from the family, from leaks and ruptures arising from forced migration and dispersal policy implemented by the host country. How individual, collective and institutional resources have an impact directly on their process of resilience and dynamics of social inclusion can be concluded.
