The right to participation for children exposed to violence : An interview study at Barnahus in Eskilstuna on the implementation of Article 12 on children's right to participation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (English)
Abstract [en]

This study aimed to investigate how Barnahus in Eskilstuna has implemented Article 12 on children's right to participate in the Convention on the Rights of the Child in their work with children exposed to violence, as well as the challenges that may arise. In order to investigate the implementation at Barnahus within the municipality, interviews were conducted with representatives of collaborating authorities and Region Sörmland. By analyzing the results based on Harry Shier's participation model, the concepts of child perspective and children's perspective, the study came to the following conclusions. The study shows that children are listened to, but that some children do not get the opportunity to come to Barnahus due to a lack of resources, long waiting periods and that other matters must be prioritized. Children are supported in expressing their opinions, but challenges emerge in the ability to adapt to different cultures and children's disabilities which can affect that children's perspectives does not get recognized. The study also shows a lack of time for the child's representative to prepare for a case, which can affect the ability to adopt a child perspective on the child's best interest. Children's views are taken into account in most parts of the process at Barnahus, but it is primarily the informants' views on the best interest of the child that guides the work. The scope for children's participation depends on their age, maturity and the authority's legal obligations.

Abstract [sv]

Denna studie syftade till att undersöka hur Barnahus i Eskilstuna implementerat barnkonventionens artikel 12 om barns rätt till delaktighet i deras arbete med våldsutsatta barn samt eventuella utmaningar som kan uppstå. För att undersöka implementeringen på Barnahus inom Eskilstuna kommun genomfördes intervjuer med representanter för samverkande myndigheter och Region Sörmland. Genom att analysera resultatet utifrån Harry Shiers delaktighetsmodell, begreppen barns perspektiv och barnperspektiv kom studien fram till följande slutsatser. Studien visar på att barn blir lyssnade till men att vissa barn inte får möjligheten att komma till Barnahus på grund av resursbrist, långa väntetider och att andra ärenden måste prioriteras. Barn stöttas i uttryckandet av sina åsikter men utmaningar framkom i förmågan att anpassa sig till olika kulturer och barns varierande funktion som kan påverka att barns perspektiv inte kommer fram. Studien visade även på brist på tid för den särskilda företrädaren att läsa på om ärenden vilket kan påverka förutsättningar att inta ett barnperspektiv om vad som är barnets bästa. Barnets åsikter beaktas i de flesta delar av ärendeprocessen men det är främst informanternas barnperspektiv om barnets bästa som styr arbetet. Vilket utrymme barns delaktighet får beror också på dess ålder, mognad och myndighetens rättsliga skyldigheter.
