Financial oppression and neglect of children

Abstract [en]

Financial abuse or economic violence are concepts used to address when one party exercises control, exploitation, deprivation or depletion on the other in terms of financial resources in intimate relationships, here tentatively summarised as financial oppression. In research on violence such issues are discussed with a focus on couples and is often described in connection with men's violence to women, but the impact on children is rarely addressed. Turning to research on children the concept of neglect is supposed to cover problems in families when it comes to shortage of material provision for children. In research, however, neglect of children is not looked upon as an issue related to an understanding of gendered power relationships or violence in the family. Critical discussions about research on neglect often mention its mother-blaming caracter. The research on neglect furthermore often neglects the material aspects of neglect. There is then a gap in the research on violence as well as in that on child abuse and neglect when it comes to understanding the situation when a parent´s exploitation and deprivation of the other parent also means exploitation and/or deprivation of the children. This paper draws on research in a project aiming at bringing these research areas together in order to further the understanding of children as direct and indirect victims of financial oppression in the family. This calls for a critical analysis of earlier research both in terms of drawing new empirical conclusions from existing data and theoretical development in order to get analytical tools for future empirical studies.
