Toward a Child-centric Perspective1
The Norwegian child welfare system can safely be classified as a "Family service—mandatory reporting" system similarly to those in Denmark, Finland and Sweden. The last twenty years it’s been a steady increase in the child welfare system’s responsibilities and the services provided. More children receive services, more children are placed out of home, and more workers are employed by the system. There’s been a juridification of the system, emphasize on education and valid knowledge, and a steady stream of reforms. Today’s system has high ambitions for children who might be at risk, and a child centric policy are evident in the way that children are addresses as individuals who deserve respect and dignity, not only as future adults that can provide for the welfare state.
