    Från formell till levd delaktighet: Den sociala meningen med barns delaktighet när föräldrar tvistar2023Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this dissertation was to disclose and critically investigate the social meaning of the children's participation in family law proceedings. The research project was specifically delimited to the world of policy, to the world of professional social work, and first and foremost to the world of the child. Using an  applied  phenomenology,  following  Schiltz  sociologically  grounded phenomenology, the research design includes theoretical as well as qualitative studies. In relation to the world of the child, classical phenomenologists as well as contemporary, critical phenomenologists were guiding in the orientation towards research approach and analysis of the results. The doctoral dissertation is a compilation thesis that consist of four articles, in which three have been published in peer-review journals. The first article aimed at disclosing the meaning of children's participation within the world of professional social work in the situation of family law proceedings. The second article was a theoretical study into the sedimented meaning of children's participation within the world of policy. The third article focused on the possibility of listening to the social world of the child in relation to the conceptualization of children's participation. The fourth article was a qualitative study in which children and young adults' experiences of living through family law proceedings were investigated. The four studies show that the adult conceptualization of children's participation is not properly grounded in how participation as a social phenomenon is experienced within the world of the child. For instance, in relation to family law proceedings, the necessity of assessing children's age and maturity as a sedimented prerequisite to participation is at odds within the world of the child as they are already taking part of and acting on relational matters within the family. The findings suggests that an attunement to the social world of the child as well as acknowledging children's lived participation is important if children's formal rights to participate as well as being protected are to be taken seriously.

    The social meaning of children’s participation in family law proceedings

    Ever since the Convention of the Rights of the Child, we have seen a wide variety of interpre- tations on the meaning of “children’s participation.” A critical perspective, based on a social phenomenology, is here suggested to disclose the taken-for-grantedness implicit in both policy and theoretical accounts relating to the phenomenon of children’s participation. Within the situation of family law proceedings in Sweden, children’s participation will be explored in rela- tion to its intersubjective constitution in the social world and in the manifold of sub-worlds in which it appears. It is argued that a social phenomenological approach makes it possible to explicate what we mean by children’s participation in the context of policy within the situation of family law proceedings, and to thus open up for a way to approach this phenomenon based on critical reflection.

    Listening to the Social World of the Child: A Phenomenological Proposal2022In: Barn, ISSN 0800-1669, E-ISSN 2535-5449, Vol. 40, no 3, p. 40-54Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, we wish to contribute theoretically to the intersection between “listening to children” and “children’s participation”, by suggesting a phenomenological reflection on how to listen to the social world of the child. By using examples from some recent research interviews, in which children and youths recollect their lived experience of being involved in family law proceedings, our purpose is to show how phenomenological reflection can offer insights into the constitution of social relations in the world of the child. A phenomenological approach to listening seems to allow for complex and ambiguous experiences to be understood contextually. In particular, the relational, concrete aspect of being-heard or having-been-heard as a child-in-the-world is contrasted with adult conceptualizations of children’s right to participate.

    Abstract [en]

    Children’s participation in assessing custody, residence and access Social work researchers have found custody, residence and access proceedings to be negligent regarding children’s participation and in considering their opinions. This study, with its phenomenological design, aimed at disclosing how children’s participation (as a phenomenon) appears in Swedish custody assessments as seen from the professional context of the social worker. The findings show that the meaning of children’s participation is constituted within a social context, i.e., as the background of the overall assessment and not based on a specific view in terms of outcome as expressed by the child. Three specific themes were discovered: 1) informing and respecting the child, 2) attempting to understand the child, and 3) integrating the perspective of the child within the overall assessment. The findings also suggest the necessity of clarifying concepts within the social work profession.
