    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to discuss how children and adolescents experience everyday life in economic hardship and how a negotiation of the family positions can be linked to these experiences. The article takes its theoretical starting point in childhood sociology, and is based on an interview study involving 17 children between the ages of 6-18 in families living on or below the limit for receiving welfare benefits. The purpose of these interviews is to explore how these children experience economic hardship at home and among friends, focusing their own strategies and agency. I argue that the financial situation in these families do indeed challenge the way that the child position is traditionally understood, which also has implications for the children's identity work. Including children as participants in research therefore becomes crucial in order to fully understand the ramifications of child poverty.

    Descriptions of parents when families risk eviction: Categorizations, explanations and scope for interventions2015Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous research has stressed the importance of proper housing conditions and continuity in the living environment in relation to children’s well-being. Accordingly, The Swedish government issued in 2007 a Vision Zero regarding evictions of children and their families. Since then however, over 3000 children have been evicted and far more are registered in requests for evictions at the Swedish Enforcement Authority, which highlight the importance of researching evictions processes regarding families in the Swedish welfare state. The recently initiated study that this paper is based on uses investigations regarding financial aid, handled by the social services at a municipal level, as empirical data in order to analyze how parents are described in relation to risk of eviction. This analysis is carried out with the purpose to see how discourses on poverty and parenthood are formulated in the data. Previous works on poverty in the welfare state in general, and on poor families in particular, has shown that the old and naturalized distinction between deserving and undeserving poor is still prominent in processes like these and that poverty is above all regarded as a sign of lacking discipline and diligence. However, previous studies has also shown that poverty often correlate with cognitive difficulties (caused by neuropsychiatric disorders and/or intellectual disabilities), which suggest that this may be the case also in relation to evictions of families. This possible connection has however not been explicitly addressed in previous research.

    The social welfare agency workers who produce the investigations in question are here viewed as street level bureaucrats who can “determine the eligibility of citizens for government benefits and sanctions” (Lipsky 1980:4) and the investigations as mediators of dominant discourses on poverty The focus of the analysis is thus to see how taken-for-granted descriptions and categorizations can be viewed as expressions of governance in the welfare state. This analysis will be used as a starting point for a discussion whether alternative models of explanations to economic hardship - such as parental cognitive difficulties – are, or could be, recognized in the investigations as a possible contributing factor to an impending risk of eviction.

    The study will also consist of interviews with street level bureaucrats such as social workers and employees at the Enforcement Authority, and also representatives from charity organizations who often encounter and support families living in economic hardship, in order to capture their view of these processes: their role in them and what scopes for improvement they see. The aim of these interviews is to address how different modes of operation and collaborations within and/or between authorities could reduce the number of families being evicted.

    The study is expected to highlight how discourses of morality and discipline in relation to poverty may overshadow other models of explanations. Apart from contributing to a critical discussion about processes of categorization in the operation of the Swedish Welfare state, this could be a starting point for discussing how preventive work in relation to evictions of children and their parents can be reviewed and improved in the Swedish Welfare state which is in line with the aforementioned Vision Zero.

    En erfarenhet rikare?: En kvalitativ studie av barns strategier och barnfattigdomens villkor i välfärdsstaten2013Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    In the context of the Swedish welfare state, the issue of child poverty has over the past decade become increasingly prominent within the political agenda. Most research on child poverty has been based on statistics and research on children’s everyday life and their experiences in situations of economic hardship has been in demand in international as well as Swedish research. The aim of this thesis is to explore and analyze children’s experiences of living within economic hardship as part of their identity work. In addition, it highlights how their agency can be understood as a way of dealing with their situation, as well as how child poverty – and the child position in a welfare state setting -  is understood and conceptualized by the society they live in.  The analysis was based on an interview study involving seventeen children between the ages of 6–18 in families living on or below the limit for receiving welfare benefits. The purpose of the interviews was to explore how these children experience economic hardship at home and among same-aged children, focusing their own strategies and agency.

    The thesis uses the field of childhood sociology as a theoretical starting point, and the empirical findings are analyzed with an interactionist approach which highlights the meaning of interaction and agency in relation to identity work. The strategies deployed by the children in this study was interpreted in the context of the limited space for agency that the child position entails as well as how their positioning as children, by themselves and others, creates a new understanding of the way poverty is managed by them. This thesis seeks to problematize the issue of child poverty in Sweden by stressing its complexities.  The thesis also emphasizes that it would be a simplification to label these children as merely stigmatized since the status of poverty as a stigma for children can be questioned.

    Seeing identity as work produced in interaction is a starting point in this current study, were analyzing interviews with children living in economic hardship, and how everyday life in economic hardship in one way or another becomes significant for their identity work[DS1] ,  is the main empirical material. This article is intended to illustrate[RC2]  how to 1) combineing James A Holstein and Jaber F Gubrium’s active interview approach with elements from Erving Goffmans frame analysis, and 2) introduceing this approach as a fruitful way of analyzing children’s narratives. Also, by regarding the interview as interaction and thereby acknowledging the respondents’ participation in the research process, I argue that an interactive interview approach has both ethical and analytical advantages that should appeal to qualitative childhood studies.

    Abstract [en]

    This article deals with the representation of children in the Swedish welfare state, and particularly how children and parents living in economic hardship are positioned in issues regarding financial aid. According to Article 12 in the UNCRC, children have a right to be heard 'in any judicial and administrative proceedings affecting the child'. However, children are not participants in processes concerning welfare benefits, despite the effect that the outcome of these processes may have on children's everyday life. Using welfare benefits appeals as a starting point, the article argues that the impact of the centrality of work discourse in Swedish welfare policy further emphasizes children's position as passive and non-participants in the welfare discourse.

    The aim of this article is to discuss how economic hardship is experienced in school and among same-aged groups, and to explore how children and youth affected by poverty manage their situation in the school setting. In relation to this, I problematize the relevance of the stigma concept and the 'peer group' concept. The article takes its starting point in childhood sociology, and is based on an interview study involving 17 children and young people, between the ages of 6 and 18, who live in economic hardship. I argue that the accounts of experiencing and dealing with poverty in school show the complexity of this issue, which leads to a re-exanimation of how economic hardship among children and young people is understood.

    'He wants to mess with me, not the Social Insurance Agency':: custodial parents' experiences of the handling of maintenance support after the amendments in the Swedish Social Insurance Code2018Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores the effects of the amendments regarding maintenance support in Sweden, which became effective in 2016. These amendments imply that maintenance support should to a larger extent be transformed into maintenance allowance, whereby the handling of support is transferred from the Social Insurance Agency (SIA) to the parents who are expected to initiate a dialogue to secure the best interest of the children in financial terms. However, this may be problematic. Possible occurrence of violence and financial oppression, when the financial acting space of one partner is restricted by the other, may severely complicate the implementation. It has been argued that a normative family perspective, that presupposes the possibility of an unproblematic co-operation between ex-partners with children tends to obscure such power imbalances. Although desirable, mutual responsibility for support can thus create potential for fathers to exert financial oppression over mothers, who most often have the main financial responsibility as custodial parents.

    By interviewing ten custodial parents about their experiences of maintenance processes after the amendments, this study focuses on if, or how, experiences of violence and financial oppression has affected these processes and what implications this may have on the financial situation for parents and children.  Preliminary results from these interviews suggest that the legislative changes and how they have been executed by the SIA to a large extent neglect previous experience of violence and threats. It is also a possibility that the amendments may in fact facilitate a financially oppressive behavior towards the custodial parent.

    Abstract [en]

    People with cognitive difficulties often have scarce economic resources, and parents with cognitive difficulties are no exception. In this article, parents' experiences are put forth and discussed, for example, how does economic hardship affect family life? How do the parents experience support, what kind of strain does the scarce economy put on their situation and how are their children coping? The data consist of interviews with parents living in this often problematic situation. Experiences of poverty and how it can be related to - and understood in the light of - cognitive difficulties and notions of parenthood and children's agency are scarcely addressed in the current research. The findings suggest that experiences of poverty are often associated with the limitations caused by cognitive difficulties. Poverty may thus be articulated as one aspect of the stigma they can experience due to their impairments, not least in relation to their children and naturalized discourses on parenthood.

    ‘One does one’s best’: performing deservingness in income support case records2018Inngår i: Critical and radical social work An international journal, ISSN 2049-8608, E-ISSN 2049-8675, Vol. 6, nr 3, s. 329-343Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing on theory and previous research on categorisation processes in social work practice, this article discusses how parents are portrayed in Swedish social services records on eviction risk and focuses on how these individuals are constructed as clients with regards to notions of financial propriety. The data consist of 37 income support case records, and the analysis of these texts suggests that (dis)ability and economic hardship often constitute two unconnected narratives in these data and that performative features of financial propriety and deservingness are often accentuated in these processes. It is argued that financial difficulties are primarily linked to the client's perceived general inability to handle money, even in cases where the client's cognitive difficulties could be relevant in order to understand the financial situation. On a practical level, this may make it difficult for the client to get proper and proactive support in relation to financial problems.

    Performing Propriety in Swedish Social Benefits Case Records2018Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing on theory and previous research that focuses on moral dimensions and categorization processes in social work practice, this paper discusses how parents are portrayed in Swedish social services records on eviction risk and focuses on how these individuals are constructed as clients with regards to notions of functionality and propriety in relation to financial problems. The data consists of 37 financial aid case records from the social services and the analysis of these texts suggest that (dis)ability and economic hardship often constitute two non-connected narratives in this data and that performative features of financial propriety and deservingness are often accentuated in these processes. It is argued that financial difficulties are primarily linked to the client's perceived negligence, passivity and a general inability to handle money, even in cases where the client's cognitive difficulties could be relevant in order to understand the financial situation. On a practical level, this may make it difficult for the client to get proper and proactive support in relation to the financial problems.

It has been argued that a normative family perspective, that presupposes the possibility of an unproblematic co-operation between ex-partners with children tends to obscure such power imbalances. Although desirable, mutual responsibility for support can thus create potential for fathers to exert financial oppression over mothers, who most often have the main financial responsibility as custodial parents.

    By interviewing ten custodial parents and administrators about their experiences of maintenance processes after the amendments, this study focuses on if, or how, experiences of violence and financial oppression has affected these processes and what implications this may have on the financial situation for parents and children.  Preliminary results suggest that the legislative changes and how they have been executed by the SIA to a large extent neglect previous experience of violence and threats which is partly due to administrative routines and the administrators’ attitude towards discussing these issues.

    Social workers as street-level-bureaucrats in processes of financial aid and eviction risk among families in Sweden2017Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In the Swedish welfare state, assessment of applications regarding benefits for rent costs varies greatly between municipalities. This could partly be explained by formulations in the legislation but also by the inherent discretion in social work practice.  This study focuses on practices of categorization in processes of eviction risk among families, where there are indications of parental cognitive difficulties. The paper in question aims at exploring social workers’ discretionary approaches in these client interactions, and specifically how indications of cognitive difficulties are handled in relation to financial problems. This paper highlights how they, as street-level-bureaucrats (Lipsky, 1980), define and assess these clients’ needs of support but also how they view their professional role and the scope for interventions regarding parental impairments in relation to need for income support.

    This qualitative analysis is based on a small section of the above-mentioned study, consisting of interviews with nine social workers in different units of the social welfare agency, who encounter families in eviction risk and use discretion in their exercise of public authority. The tentative findings show that although the interviewees note that cognitive difficulties may partly explain the need for income support on a general level, the strategies to 1) address indications of impairments, 2) emphasize the possible correlations between impairments and the financial problems and 3) adjust the process and/or offer alternative interventions vary greatly, which among other things suggest that the social workers may not get a full account of their clients’ situation which in turn may affect the access to proper support.

    Street-level bureaucracy and categorization processes in social workers’ encounters with parents who have financial and cognitive difficulties2018Inngår i: Nordic Social Work Research, ISSN 2156-857X, E-ISSN 2156-8588Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In the Swedish welfare state, assessment of applications regarding benefits for rent costs varies greatly between municipalities which could partly be explained by the inherent discretion in social work practice. This study focuses on practices of categorisation in processes of eviction risk among families, where there are indications of parental cognitive difficulties. The present article aims at exploring social workers’ discretionary approaches in these client interactions, and specifically how indications of cognitive difficulties are handled in relation to financial problems. This paper highlights how they, as street-level-bureaucrats, define and assess these particular clients’ needs of support but also how they view their professional role and the scope for interventions regarding parental impairments in relation to need for income support.

    This qualitative analysis is based on interviews with 10 social workers in different units of the social welfare agency, who in their work encounter families in eviction risk due to financial problems. The findings show that although the interviewees note that cognitive difficulties may partly explain the need for income support on a general level, the strategies to address indications of such difficulties and adjust the process and/or offer alternative interventions to suit the clients needs vary.

    ‘This Is What We’ve Ended Up In, So To Speak’: Administrators’ Perspectives On Their Professional Role After Changes In Child Maintenance Regulation In Sweden2019Inngår i: 14 th Conference of the European Sociological Association (ESA), 2019Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores the effects of the amendments in the Swedish legislation that governs maintenance support transactions between separated parents, which became effective in 2016, through the perspectives of administrators at the governmental authority Social Insurance Agency (SIA). These amendments imply that maintenance support should to a larger extent be transformed into maintenance allowance, whereby the handling of maintenance is transferred from the SIA to the parents who are expected to initiate a dialogue to secure the best interest of the children in financial terms. However, this may be problematic. Possible occurrence of violence or threats from one parent to the other may complicate these processes and if a parent claims that s/he has been exposed to such abuse, this can be viewed as grounds for continuing maintenance transactions via the SIA. This means that the administrators to a much larger extent have to incorporate the discourse of intimate partner violence in their work after the implementation of the amendments.

     

    The study that this paper is a part of aims at exploring how experiences of violence and financial oppression has affected these processes and what implications this may have on the financial situation for parents and children. Drawing on interviews with ten SIA administrators across Sweden, this paper analyses and discusses how the administrators conceptualize the changes in their work and how the strategies they deploy in order to navigate in this in many respects new problem complex may be viewed as a form of boundary work since the administrators’ work moves closer to a social work paradigm as a result of the amendments.

    Economic Hardship: an Issue for Children's Agency at Home, at School and at the Social Welfare Office2006Konferansepaper (Annet (populærvitenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [en]

    This paper introduces a research project aiming at understanding children’s experiences of living in economic hardship in Sweden and presents some initial empirical results. The newly started project is focusing on children’s own perspective, their experiences in everyday life in various social contexts, and their financial and social strategies in interaction with other children, their parents and professionals at school and in the social welfare agencies. What does economic hardship mean to children in terms of material conditions, social relations, school work, identity or wellbeing? Which scope of agency do children see and how do they use it? How do the legal framework and the practices at school and at social welfare agencies construct the child (of various age and gender), the mother and the father in this kind of cases? Are children seen as actors, victims, consumers or objects of their parents’ responsibility as providers? Are children allowed a scope of action in the financial decision making processes in their family and / or in formal processes of financial support? If so, what kind of agency and what happens when they participate? Which kind of interpretative framework concerning children’s actions is used by the adults involved in the interaction with the children? The empirical work is conducted in two different municipalities in Sweden and will include analysis of interviews and a survey with children from three age categories (6-7, 11-12, 15-16), their parents (single as well as two parent families), school staff and social welfare officers, documents on local policies and court records. The project draws on childhood sociology, and research on gender, organization and professions. This paper will focus the legal processes concerning social welfare to families with children; children’s visibility in the process and their eventual scope of agency. The project is ending 2008.

    Economic hardship in childhood: Children's agency in processes concerning families with scarce resources2006Konferansepaper (Annet (populærvitenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents some theoretical discussions and initial empirical results from a research project aiming at analysing children’s experiences of living in economic hardship in Sweden. The newly started project is focusing on children´s own perspective, their experiences in everyday life in various social contexts, and their financial and social strategies in interaction with other children, their parents and professionals at school and in the social welfare agencies. What does economic hardship mean to children in terms of material conditions, social relations, school work, identity or wellbeing? Which scope of agency do children see and how do they use it? How do the legal framework and the practices at school and at social welfare agencies construct the child (of various age and gender), the mother and the father in this kind of cases? Are children seen as actors, victims, consumers or objects of their parents responsibility as providers? Are children allowed a scope of action in the financial decision making processes in their family and / or in the welfare agencies? If so, what kind of agency and what happens when they participate? Which kind of interpretative framework concerning children’s actions is used by the adults involved in the interaction with the children? This paper will present initial findings from analyses of the legal processes concerning social welfare to families with children, focusing on the eventual scope of agency for children. The empirical work is conducted in two different municipalities in Sweden and will include interviews and a survey with children from three age categories (6-7, 11-12, 15-16), their parents (single as well as two parent families), school staff and social welfare officers.

    Professional’s views on children in economic hardship2007Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    I det pågående projektet Ekonomisk utsatthet i barndomen, studeras ekonomiskt utsatta barns aktörskap. Projektet kommer att bygga på barns egna berättelser om sin vardag i informella och formella sammanhang, men också på analys av dokument samt intervjuer med representanter för olika professionella grupper, som kan komma i kontakt med ekonomiskt utsatta barn. Det är preliminära analyser av ett urval domar och intervjuer med professionella, som diskuteras i denna presentation. Huvudfrågor är vilken syn professionella har på barns ekonomiska utsatthet och barns delaktighet i dessa sammanhang. I vad mån görs ekonomiskt utsatta barn synliga? Tillskrivs barn aktörskap? Vilket handlingsutrymme, om något, ges barn i mötet med den professionelle? Vad betyder barns rättigheter enligt barnkonventionen i dessa skilda möten? Dessa frågor utmynnar i en analys av konstruktioner av barn och utsatthet.
