    Children’s Sport, a Question of Rights? Children, Childhood and the Swedish Sports Movement2009In: Idrottsforum.org, ISSN 1652-7224, no 090429Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Practicing sports has traditionally been regarded as a good and healthy leisure activitiy for children. Organised sport has a strong position in Sweden and most children will take part in organised sport at some point during their childhood (Engström 1996; Patriksson 1987; Ungdomsstyrelsen 2005). The image of children participating in organised sport seems to be so strong and positive that it has become a part of what is considered ‘good childhood’ (and ‘good parenthood’ means letting your child participate in sport activities), along with play and innocence. Sport has become a part of how children’s life and childhood today are socially constructed. Through sport a child can become what it should be, and learn important lessons before entering adulthood. However, the belief that children automatically benefit and develop into good citizens just by participating in organised sport is losing its strength in the public debate. One reason for this is that it seems as if the most important element, playing for fun, is gradually disappearing and that children’s sports have become too serious (David 2004; Peterson 2002). Increasing professionalism and commercialisation of sport has been blamed for contributing to the seriousness and the belief that children should practise sports from an early age, in order to develop the right and necessary sport specific skills (ibid.).The critical voices in the public debate may have been influenced by the growing awareness of Children’s Rights. Whether this is true or not is an interesting question; however, it is not the subject of this article. Instead, the aim is to discuss the social construction of children and (indirectly also) childhood in connection to two empirical examples, the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child and the Swedish sports movement. The point of departure is a presentation of ‘new childhood studies’ and some previous research on children’s sports connected to children’s rights (human rights). This is followed by a brief account of the Convention of the Rights of the Child, and a short retrospect of children’s admission to the Swedish sports movement. Throughout the article I will elaborate on the shortcomings of previous research and some of the paradoxes in the social construction of childhood in order to point out some interesting questions for further research.

    Det aktiva barnet? En forskningsöversikt2010In: Barndom, lärande, ämnesdidaktik: exempel från en forskningsmiljö vid Lärarutbildningen; / [ed] Sven Persson, Malmö högskola, Lärarutbildningen , 2010, p. 121-141Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Föreliggande artikel fokuserar på forskning som rör ett idrottsvetenskapligt intresseområde där syftet är att kartlägga – i första hand bibliometriskt – forskning i skärningsfältet mellan förskola och skola, lärande, rörelse samt idrott (fysisk aktivitet). Forskningsöversikten ska belysa kunskapsområdet barndom, lärande och ämnesdidaktik ur ett idrottsvetenskapligt perspektiv och ska bland annat ge underlag till en beskrivning av forskningsfältets kunskapsbas, dess bredd, djup och teoretiska utgångspunkter.

    It's a Question of Rights... Children's Rights and the Swedish Sports Movement.2007Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The Convention on the Rights of the Child spells out the basic human rights to which children everywhere are entitled to. This also includes organised sports, in which many Swedish children take part. Sports are traditionally regarded to be good and healthy leisure activity for children and sport has a strong position in Sweden. Nevertheless it seems like the most important element, playing for fun, gradually has become more serious. The increasing professionalism and commercialisation of sport has contributed to this seriousness. At the same time the Swedish sport federations has taken more (social) responsibility, and tried to structure the sports movement with, for instance, policy documents. People in general have also become more aware of problematic issues in sport due to research and media’s interest of maltreatment of children in sports. Also several organisations and interest groups have recently put the protection of children in sports on their agendas, in order to raise the moral standard in Swedish sports. The belief that children automatically benefit and develop into good citizens just by participating in organised sport is losing its grip in the discourse, therefore this paper will discuss issues in organised children and youth sport in the light of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Do the sports movement need to do more to prevent violations against children? If so, can the UN Convention be a helpful tool? The paper investigates: 1)The policy document regarding children’s sports that the Swedish Sport Confederation has developed. 2)The connection between the Sports Movement and the Convention on the Rights of the Child. 3)Paradoxes in children’s sport.

    The Active Child? - a bibliographic study of Swedish research in the intersection of pre-school and school; didactics; movement and PE2009Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    This essay will focus on the child within research regarding physical activity in pre-school and school. This is one part of several components that will become my licentiate dissertation. Here I will in present the results of a bibliographic study of Swedish research in the intersection of pre-school and school; didactics; movement and PE and try to paint a picture of the place of the child within the research. The overview consists of dissertations (doctoral) and reports from the Government Offices of Sweden during the period of 1995-2008. Children and their roles as citizens is an important topic. To be a citizen you have to have a voice (Söderlind & Engwall 2005), which is heard. Attempts to give children voice, to create places for children to speak for them selves have been made. One example is Article 12 in the United Nation Convention on the Rights of the Child which proclaim the right for the child to speak hers or his mind (Lee 2001). In general childhood is thought of as a time of innocence and play (Ariès 1982), full of physical activity as well as a period when a child should be free from responsibilities but also have not much say. Childhood is furthermore conceived as a period when the child should be shaped into good (future) citizens (Lee 2001). Is this a paradox?

    Barn och idrott2011In: Utbildningsvetenskap för grundskolans tidiga år / [ed] Sven Persson, Bim Riddersporre, Natur & Kultur , 2011, p. 167-185Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Det är bra att fundera över hur barns och ungdomars erfarenheter av idrott påverkar deras inställning till skolämnet. Det är rimligt att tro att få andra skolämnen påverkas så starkt av upplevelser vi gör på andra platser än i skolan. I följande kapitel ska vi med utgångspunkt i tre teoretiska perspektiv – utbildningsvetenskapligt perspektiv, genusperspektiv och barnperspektiv – diskutera barnidrotten, med särskilt fokus på skolämnet Idrott och hälsa och de barn som går i grundskolans tidigare år. Spontanidrotten liksom föreningsidrotten kommer att beröras, eftersom de på olika sätt kommer in i skolan och påverkar verksamheten där. Den aktuella tidsperioden är mitten av 1800-talet och fram till i dag – även om tyngdpunkten ligger på de senaste femtio åren.

    Utvärdering av projektet Megakul2007Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Enheten för Idrottsvetenskap vid Malmö högskola har för andra året i rad haft ansvaret för att utvärdera det gångna året av projektet Megakul i ledning av Bo Carlsson, professor i Idrottsvetenskap. Tidigare utvärdering, utförd av Mats Trondman, fokuserade på vägledarnas redogörelse av sitt arbete och hur de upplevde samarbetet med skolor och föreningslivet i Malmö. Föreliggande utvärdering har dock ett målgruppsperspektiv. Resurs- och tidsbegränsningen har medfört att vi försökt skapa en övergripande bild genom att fokusera på gymnasieskolorna samt de föreningar som deltagit vid så kallade föreningsmässor eller andra aktiviteter som Megakul arrangerat.
