Legal certainty when it comes to children, seen from a social class perspective. : An exmaniation of judgments pursuant to 2§ LVU (English)
Abstract [en]

The aims of this essay were to investigate whether it was possible to read out the social class of the parents in judgments from the District Court concerning 2Åò LVU, the law of special provisions due to care for children, and whether the results was considered legally secure or if the outcome was affected by the parents' social class. We chose to use a content analysis where we analyzed 25 court judgments with help of the concepts social class, discrimination and legal certainty. This meant that we worked on the basis of a deductive analysis method in order to be able to summarize and interpret our results. What emerged in our result was that the incidence of social class in the verdict was very small. What could have been decisive was whether the parents' professions had been clearly presented in the judgment, which they were in very few cases. Therefore, we chose not only to use the parent's work as a marker for social class but also added categories such as everyday life/ routines, violence, housing, the parents childhood/mental health and social network. However, these categories were not able to individually answer our question. Hence, we instead chose to make a comparison between the categories. What the result showed us was that people with an ethnicity, other than Swedish, tended to get forcible custody of their children due to child abuse more often than parents without another ethnicity than Swedish.
