Abstract [sv]

Detta är en kvalitativ studie vars syfte är att synliggöra barns uppfostran på ett barnhem i Ghana ur ett utomkulturellt perspektiv. Studien tar ansats i globaliserings- och socialiseringsbegrepp. Den fysiska disciplineringen är en del av socialiseringsprocessen i Ghana, vilket strider mot Barnkonventionen. I denna studie uppmärksammas de motsättningar som kan uppkomma när Barnkonventionen ska implementeras i ett utvecklingsland samt den omedvetenhet som finns kring barns rättigheter. Genom kvalitativ forskning får ni ta del av en volontärs och det inhemska folkets perspektiv på barnuppfostran på ett barnhem i Ghana.

Abstract [en]

This is a qualitative study whose aim is to highlight the children's upbringing in an orphanage in Ghana from a different cultural perspective. The study’s approach is based on globalization and socialization theories. The physical disciplining is part of the socialization process in Ghana, which is contrary to the CRC. This study highlights the contradictions that might arise from the CRC when implemented in a non-Western country and the unconsciousness of childrens rights in a country as Ghana. Through interviews and observations, you will benefit from both my, the volunteer, and the indigenous people's perspective on raising children in an orphanage in Ghana.
