Tittel

The Acceptability of Child Protection Interventions. A cross-country analysis

Populærvitenskapelig sammendrag

Child protection interventions are often controversial, and mass media regularly present grim descriptions of perceived wrongdoings and illegitimate interventions. This project examines the electorates values and interpretations of the child´s best interests principle within different societies, as well at the legitimacy of the child protection systems interventions. The principle of the child´s best interests is recognized by all states, but it is a principle that is controversial and contested within and between welfare states. Specifically in in European societies we are facing social and political controversies regarding how to protect and care for the large influx of migrant children. This project will to enhance our understanding of international differences regarding children´s status and their interests.

Vitenskapelig sammendrag

This project examines the population´s values and interpretations of the child´s best interests principle within different societies, as well at the courts justifications of their best interests judgments. The principle of the child´s best interests is recognized by all states, but it is a principle that is controversial and contested within and between welfare states. This becomes evident through the media's comprehensive and daily, coverage of cases involving migrant children and their families seeking residence permit, and controversies around child protection interventions towards migrant families or minority families. For Norway, for example, there has been recurring criticism of the child protection system from other states in the recent years, and just recently with demonstrations worldwide against a child protection intervention, displaying a strong distrust in the system. There are social and political controversies within Europe and within states regarding how to protect and care for the large influx of migrant children. This project has the potential to enhance our understanding of international differences regarding children´s status and their interests. It includes randomised surveys administered to the general population and thereby generates unique data on the causal mechanisms to explain differences in the perceptions of the child´s best interests.

This project is the first comprehensive study on the justifications of decisions and judgements regarding the child´s best interests in child protection cases. As such, it enhances our understanding of the mechanisms of discretionary decision making, and it provides insight into the factors and values that are considered valid and legitimate within the legal-administrative sphere.
