Children’s rights and violence: A case analysis at a Swedish boarding school
2016 (English)In: Childhood, ISSN 0907-5682, E-ISSN 1461-7013, 1-17 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
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.
