    Den unges åsikter, inställning och delaktighet: En studie om hur ungas röst beaktas i den rättsliga processen gällande 2§ LVU2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In light of Sweden ratifying the United Nations Convention on the rights of the child, Swedish law supports the right for children to express their opinions and have their voice heard in situations concerning them. The aim of this study was to gain a deeper understanding of young people’s participation, by investigating how young people’s opinions and attitudes are taken into account in decision making concerning the lack of care shown in 2§ The Compulsory Care of Young Persons Act (1990:52). To explore this subject, this study was based on the textual analysis of 16 court cases from the administrative court from the year 2016, concerning young people aged between 15-18 years old. We found that young people’s opinions and attitudes are generally taken into account in the process of compulsory care. Our results indicate that young people’s opinions and attitudes are taken into account to a higher extent in the whole legal process when the decision of the administrative court corresponds with the young person’s opinion and attitude. In cases where the court’s decision did not correspond with the young person’s opinion and attitude, the opinions and attitudes of children were taken into account to a lesser degree. Our analysis has shown, according to the Ladder of Participation, that all young people can be seen as participators in the process of compulsory care. However, children’s participation is a complex phenomenon and additional research is needed to unpack this subject further.

    From global North to global South: A qualitative study about Swedish social work students' international field training in South Africa2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In light of globalization, international social work from global North to global South is accelerating and the emphasis from Swedish universities on international experience among students has increased. Various scholars problematize the domination of the global North as theories and practice have historically been unquestionably transformed from so-called developed to developing countries. Since the Western knowledge can be seen as the norm worldwide, international social work practice can have a negative impact on the local people, culture and knowledge if not adapted to the local context. The aim of the study was to explore to what extent Swedish social work students are prepared for field training abroad. This by exploring Swedish social work student’s experiences of their field training in South Africa. Further, the study aim was to increase our understanding of how the background as a Swedish social work student influences the field training in South Africa. The idea of the study is also to explore how South African social welfare workers relate and conceive Swedish social work students at their social welfare organization. In order to explore this subject, the study was based on fifteen semi-structured interviews with both Swedish social work students doing field training in South Africa and South African social welfare workers supervising Swedish students. Our study reveals that Swedish students doing field training in South Africa are not prepared academically in order to conduct field training abroad. Furthermore, the students expressed that the social work education lacked in terms of support, supervision and preparations for international field training. Our result indicated that students are given a high status and are seen as professionals by South African social welfare workers. Further, this study shows an indistinct relation between who is educating and who is learning among Swedish students and South African supervisors. This as a result of the power of whiteness and the view of the student’s as professionals with valuable knowledge. Our analysis has revealed, according to postcolonial theory and the concept of white privilege, signs of a continuation of historical colonial power relations and a distinction between “we” and “them”. However, international social work is a complex phenomenon and additional research is needed to unpack this subject further.

    Veteranpolitik: En komparativ fallstudie om veteraners socialrättsliga och politiska ställning i Sverige och USA2020Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    By using a comparative case study, this study examines Swedish and American veterans' conditions after completed overseas deployment. This by comparing veterans' legal and political status and identifying the social and economic benefits specifically aimed at veterans. Furthermore, the aim is to analyze to what extent the military authority is responsible for veterans after completed international military service compared to the general welfare policies. To distinguish the different social and economic benefits specifically aimed at veterans an analysis model is used that combines analysis of the welfare state by Gøsta Esping-Andersen and Theda Skocpol. The main result reveals that Sweden has a relatively newly established veteran policy, since 2010, with a legal responsibility to assess veterans' physical and psychical status pre-, and post-deployment. The US veterans, on the other hand, have since the nations founding been included and a part of American politics. The US have a legal responsibility to provide veterans with social and economic benefits. Furthermore, American veterans, if qualified for benefits, have an extensive amount of social and economic benefits. Meanwhile Swedish veterans', even though they recieve some social and economic benefits, have to rely on the public welfare system to a higher extent than the American veterans.
