The main purpose of this essay was to study how the social service committee and a special management at social service has implemented the UN Convention on the Rights of the child, and particularly children’s perspective in the law of the Swedish Social Service.

The study was based on five qualitative interviews conducted with two politicians and three civil servants of social service.

There is even ideological management insufficiency from the politicians who are responsible for the implementation of the law. (Less)
