Tittel

Legitimacy challenges - An analysis of mistrust in core institutions and the normative fundament of the welfare state.

Populærvitenskapelig sammendrag

The Norwegian child protection system has in recent years been subject to harsh criticism both nationally and internationally. This is despite the fact that Norway is consistently ranked high on all types of measures on child rights and child well-being. Part of the criticism of the Norwegian child welfare system has come from citizens groups and religious and ultra-conservative groups abroad. The critics questions the legitimacy of the child protection system and children's rights, and are simultaneously expressing a huge mistrust in legal institutions and the normative foundations of the Nordic welfare state model.


We currently know very little about how these groups are organized, what their arguments are, and how their message is received by other citizens in Norway and abroad. We also lack knowledge about how the government reacts to the criticism.


The project "Legitimacy Challenges" will provide new knowledge of how the legitimacy of core institutions is affected by mobilization against social and political rights. The project will be the most comprehensive cross-country study ever undertaken on this topic. The project will analyze and compare the opinions of citizens in six different countries on the topic of family values and children's rights. In addition, the project will map the organisation of and strategies applied by opponents and proponents in the debate, and critically analyse the rationality of the discourse's around child protection and children's rights.
