International adoption : A study on Sweden, adoption and the argument “international adoption for “the best interest of the child”. (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine factors to why international adoption is seen positive

in the Swedish society, which contributes to why international adoption is argued as something

good from a child perspective. The study aims to highlight arguments that contradicts the

picture of adoption as only positive through criticizing and problematizing international

adoption as practice. The study came to the conclusion that the Swedish politics, Sweden as a

democratic role model and international adoption as a charity are three aspects to why it can be

argued as something positive. Also, that adoption can be more harmful than what is showed in

the society. That people’s need to adopt from the Third World can be argued to why

international adoption can be human trafficking. Through a postcolonial perspective

international adoption can also be seen as an asymmetric power structure between West and the

Third World. Through that, the politics in Sweden must flag this part of international adoption

to widen the perspective and by that, present how real changes can be made to why people in

the Third World are forced to leave their children for adoption to the West.
