Today's Children of the Dream : A case study on collective upbringing of children in an Israeli children's village (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to understand how a children's village in Israel is working to secure children's basic needs. Studies of the Israeli case give increased knowledge about children's villages as out–of–home care. Through a case study, material in the form of interviews and observations has been collected. The study has an ethnographic approach and is based on the result from five semi–structured interviews with a social worker, a children's group leader, teachers and a contact person for the children's village. The material is also based on the authors' observations. The result shows that there are different approaches to secure children's basic needs in a children's village, that every profession has an important role in each method and that stability is the most important need for a child regardless of the form of care. The result also shows that a children's village in relation to other intervention is a quick way to secure children's needs in terms of housing, food and education.
