CONSENT - Cosmopolitan Turn and Democratic Sentiments

Vitenskapelig sammendrag

The project will examine empirically to what extent the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) is considered to be relevant in democratic assemblies and legal regulations, if it corresponds to the nature of trust people have in child protection services, and if it can be traced through professional practices.

The project aims to develop a comprehensive expression and conceptualization of the protection of the child according to the CRC, and will focus upon the child´s right to non-discrimination, best interests of the child, participation and both child and parents´ right to family-life. These four rights will be used as a lever to answer two main questions: 

(1) What does the individual child’s cosmopolitan citizenship entail according to the core- rights? and (2) What does successful protection of children entail, provided the child’s cosmopolitan citizenship? 

Consequently, the entire project cut across two distinct normative orders across entire Europe, namely cosmopolitanism and nationalismwithin child protection. Thus, one of the main goals is to assess the effects of child protection crises on participative democracy. Moreover, migration is a test-case for cosmopolitan child citizenship, and will be answered across all work packages. The same goes for how minorities, such as Roma and Sami, become treated by child protection services. Furthermore, child protection services ́ clients are predominantly disadvantaged groups, either socially, or economically. 

The project asks three main questions: 

Q1. How successfully is the child protected according to the rights of the child?

By answering this question, the project will assess whether the CRC, in the one end, is embedded in the democratic rule of law, or, in the other end of the continuum, whether the rights and norms of the CRC constitute a mere lofty promise that fail to have any meaning to its citizens once we shed light on it. This question will be structured by three components: 

  1. What is the level of protection according to laws, regulations and policies? What operative principles of child protection are detectable? Do these principles abide by the self-imposed democratic duty to respect, enforce and continuously implement the rights of the child? 
  2. What are the views on the child rights and protection among legislators, practitioners and the general public? To what extent are these views shaped by the ethnicity, migrant status, gender, and wealth of children and their families?
  3. What are the discrepancies between operative principles and views on CPS? 

Q2. What are the determinants of the views on child rights and on child protection? What are the roles played by social trust, institutional trust and nationalism in each of the two societies?

Q3. What are the effects of child protection crises on democratic culture? What are the moderating factors (ex. social media, level of social trust, level of corruption)? 

The project key research targets will be reached through eight work packages: 

WP1 – the Management of the entire project; 

WP2 – Conceptual grid: Constitutional Democracy and the Rights of the Child; 

WP3 – Study of formal rules, institutions and policies regarding child protection; 

WP4 – The Democratic Logic: According to Entrustment and Trusted?; 

WP5 – Professional practice according to rights; 

WP6 – Crises in Child Protection Services; 

WP7 -- Policy recommendations; 

WP8 -- Dissemination of research findings
