BLOG

Social media abuse and online harassment of child protection workers

 
"Child protection and welfare workers are particularly susceptible to social media abuse and harassment, given the nature of the work where there are notable power differentials," writes Kenneth Burns in this blogpost. Read his advice on how child protection workers and managers can process unwanted digital behaviours.

NEW PROJECT

County Social Welfare Board Decisions in Child Protection Cases

 
County Social Welfare Board Decisions in Child Protection Cases (BARN-NEMND) is an infrastructure project whose primary objective is to develop a new database on care order decisions in Norway. The project collects information on approximately 3500 decisions from 1998, 2008, 2018, and 2021.

BOOK REVIEW

Review of Adoption from Care

 
Brian Sloan has reviewed our recently published book in the International Journal of Law, Policy and the Family:

"Adoption from state care is one of the most controversial issues in child law, particularly where it is performed without parental consent. While recognising the complexity of the interests involved, the editors of this volume boldly assert ‘that the rights of the child often come second to parental rights’ in this context."  

CONFERENCE

Sharing new knowledge from the Centre at EuSARF2021 conference

Events

From collaborators

Anne-Mette Magnussen to lead committee assessing the Norwegian police

 
The Norwegian police generally benefit from a high degree of trust among the population. However, recent events concerning the Norwegian Narcotic Officers Association and members' independence as police officers have put this trust into question.
