    I enlighet med barnets bästa?: Hur principen om barnets bästa tillvaratas i LVU-beslut med beaktande till barnkonventionen2020Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 40 credits / 60 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to examine whether children’s rights in deciding on compulsory care (LVU) could be fulfilled by prevailing Swedish legislation, taking into account the principle of the childs best interest. The focus of the study was to explore how the principle of the best interest of the child is considered in decisions on compulsory care. This was done by examining the child’s right to be heard during the court process and if the childs opinions and will is taken into account when deciding on LVU. I used a legal dogmatic method to analyze the U.N. convention of the rights of the child (article 3 and article 12) as well as the Swedish law sections LVU, SoL and FB. This study was based on a case study with eight compulsory care cases settled in the Swedish ”Kammarrätt”. All reviewed cases were in accordance to 2 § LVU and the age criteria for the children was between ten to fourteen years old. The result has given an insight in the different ways a child is heared during court process, some children got to express their opinions themselves and some children ́s opinions were expressed through their representative or the social welfare board ́s investigation. The children ́s opinion and their will was noted to a degree in most cases,while in some cases the children ́s opionions and will (especially siblings) was contradictory, the court had to base their judgments on what was considered to be the best interests of the child.

    Våldsutsatta barns rätt till delaktighet: En intervjustudie om implementeringen av barnkonventionens artikel 12 om barns rätt till delaktighet på Barnahus i Eskilstuna2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    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.
