Abstract [en]

Drawing on the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the article highlights various conceptions of violence at a Swedish boarding school and is based on a critical discourse analysis of different educational and media documents. The investigation indicates that ambitions to protect children from violence need to overcome the dichotomy of private and public in order to protect children affected by violence in the borderland between the private and public spheres.

Abstract [en]

The European Convention on Human Rights has been signed by both the UK and Sweden as well as other European states, providing legal justification for accommodating the educational needs of religious minorities. This legal entitlement is explored in the paper with particular reference to parental choice for separate schools based on an Islamic ethos. How the UK and Sweden have responded to accommodate the religious convictions of Muslim families is the focus of discussion, drawing on historical and policy background and the establishment of separate schooling. The paper also draws on the theoretical work of Kumashiro and the concept of ‘Education for the Other’, examining the positioning of minority groups within the broad context of a multicultural society and the challenge of accommodating religious convictions in a climate of ‘failed multiculturalism’ increasing support for  cultural  integration and assimilation.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this article is to analyze and discuss the possibilities of an equitative implementation of the European policies of language proficiency in the context of neoliberal education policies. With the EU recommendations about language proficiency policies as starting point, the main documents governing the Swedish educational policy as well as the concrete practices of the different actors involved in the teaching and learning of Spanish as a foreign language are analyzed. This is done by taking as an axis the different forms of freedom of choice. It is shown that the current neoliberal educational system in Sweden does not favor the implementation of the recommendations of equity proposed by the EU. This is explained by the increasing freedom of choice by various actors, which has created a state of instability and inequality in the conditions of implementation of European policies on multilingualism.
