The result of this investigation points out the importance of leadership, knowledge and the time factor. I am thereby attempting to increase the realization that the implementation of the Child Convention in reality is a continuous work of social change. This is a qualitative investigation with an interpretative exposition based on the interviews, primarily with representatives from the local governments and also, to some extent, with persons from other social authorities.
