Barnfattigdom: om bemötande och metoder ur ett barnperspektiv
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Sociology. (Intersektionalitet)
2012 (Swedish)Book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

In this study a child perspective is chosen to analyse how child poverty is managed by children, parents, social welfare agencies, schools and administrativ courts. Based on interviews with children, parents and professionals the book shows how children develop strategies to handle the tensions related to poverty at home as well as at school - strategies that mirror the feeelings of shame connected to poverty and that contribute to the exclusion of the poor children and to the invisibility of their needs, The study also demonstrates the difficulties authorities face in implementing children's rights according to the UNCRC in child poverty cases and how policies largerly familialize the children or even make them invisible by treating them mainly as a caracteristic and responsibility of their parents.
