The Child's Interests in Conflict: The Intersections between Society, Family, Faith and Culture
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Law, Department of Law. (The Impact of Religion: Challenges for Society, Law and Democracy)
2016 (English)Collection (editor) (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This book, edited by Maarit Jänterä-Jareborg, addresses one of the most pressing issues of any multicultural society, namely the conflicting demands, by society and the family, on children from minority groups or children born to parents of different cultural or religious backgrounds.  What the family (or a parent) considers to be inte child's best interests and welfare in the studied situations is not shared by society at large. The various contributions, written primarily by leading experts and with an interdisciplinary element, address situations of conflict regarding the child's upbringing and education, the shaping of the child's cultural or faith-based identity, underage marriage, circumcision of boys, forced placements of children into care outside of their parental home, and the role of faith in cross-border custody disputes.
