Abstract
The aim of this study was to highlight how women’s shelters work with the child perspectives and examine whether there is any difference in how the two national associations Riksorganisationen för kvinnojourer och tjejjourer i Sverige (Roks) and Sveriges kvinno- och tjejjourers riksförbund (SKR) applies the child perspectives. To examine this, we conducted interviews with six employees and one volunteer from four different women’s shelters. We chose to use a qualitative method with semi-structured interviews, combined with vignettes.

The aim of this study was to highlight how women’s shelters work with the child perspectives and examine whether there is any difference in how the two national associations Riksorganisationen för kvinnojourer och tjejjourer i Sverige (Roks) and Sveriges kvinno- och tjejjourers riksförbund (SKR) applies the child perspectives. To examine this, we conducted interviews with six employees and one volunteer from four different women’s shelters. We chose to use a qualitative method with semi-structured interviews, combined with vignettes. As support during the interviews we used an interview guide with four main topics: background information, the child perspectives, working practices and organizational guidelines. We thought this method was relevant for the purpose of the essay as we wanted to do a more complex analysis. The analysis is based on two different theories: the child perspectives and organizational theory with a focus on organizational culture. After taking part of the response, we believe that women’s shelters take the child perspectives into account in all work related to children, for example by showing respect, making sure the child's needs are provided for, listen to the child’s opinions,
activate them and give them security. Roks and SKR's guidelines contain a child perspective. The national associations’ definition of the child perspectives was not considered by the interviewees to be clearly defined in the guidelines. We did not experience a distinct organizational culture specific to Roks or SKR, or specific to the single women's shelter. The
differences in the application of the child perspectives we have been able to discover has not been according to which national association the respondents belonged, but were based on individual values and opinions. (Less)
