  • “Vulnerability” and Its Unintended Consequences 

    Skoglund, Jeanette; Thørnblad, Renee (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-05-11)
    “Vulnerability” is now a widely used term in different settings—from politics and academia to everyday life. In response, a growing body of research has emerged critiquing and challenging the use of the concept in the social sciences. In this paper, we explore the use of the term vulnerability in research on children in out-of-home care and discuss the possible negative consequences of this—for the ...

    The COVID-19 pandemic had negative effects on many people's well-being and quality of life. In the present work, we focused on Norwegian mothers with elementary school children, and investigated whether their well-being, stress, and worries (and the relationships between them) changed across the early months of the pandemic. We collected data at two time points in 2020. In June 2020, 231 mothers ...

    Cirasa, Carla; Høgsdal, Helene; Conti, Daniela (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-02-09)
    Research in the field of human–robot interactions (HRIs) has advanced significantly in recent years. Social humanoid robots have undergone severe testing and have been implemented in a variety of settings, for example, in educational institutions, healthcare facilities, and senior care centers. Humanoid robots have also been assessed across different population groups. However, research on various ...
  • Politiavhør av mistenkte barn under 15 år 

    Holm, Inger Marie; Jacobsen, Ioanna Dallari (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-11-13)
    Mistenkte barn avhøres etter de samme reglene som voksne, og det foreligger ingen krav til særlig kompetanse hos avhører. Det er per i dag ikke utviklet et tilpasset system for mistenkte barn under kriminell lavalder i politiavhør. Disse faktorer kan lede til en risiko for at barnas rettssikkerhet potensielt settes i fare. Med utgangspunkt i gjeldende rett drøftes hvorvidt det gjelder særregler ved ...

    Lohmann, Rainer; Beatty, Bonita; Graybill, Jessica; Grigorieva, Elena; Hansen, Ketil Lenert; Soikkeli, Anu (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-12-12)
    In the Arctic, environment and health are linked in myriad ways. A key emphasis has been on numerous long-lived contaminants in traditional foods, particularly marine mammals, and their well-documented impacts on human, animal and environmental health (“One health approach”). More recent concerns for Indigenous communities focus on the (side) effects of the switch to a modern, processed diet, which ...

  • Samtykke fra mindreårige. Implikasjoner rundt barns samtykke til informasjonsdeling i tverretatlig samarbeid. 

    Holm, Inger Marie; Jacobsen, Ioanna Dallari; Larsen, Anette Iren Langås (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-12-19)
    For å sikre helhetlig oppfølging av utsatte barn og unge er samarbeid på tvers av tjenester et uttalt mål i offentlig sektor, og det følger også av lov. En samordnet innsats fordrer informasjonsdeling mellom tjenester, hvilket medfører utfordringer knyttet til blant annet taushetsplikt, samtykke og personvern. I enkeltsaker kan det være krevende å avgjøre hvorvidt en mindreårig er samtykkekompetent. ...

    This article aims to support researchers in addressing the challenges when seeking access to CYP and their consent to participate in research. Despite the growing consensus about the need to involve children and young people in research, there is a lack of literature on how to increase their participation in welfare research.

    Bordin, Isabel A.; Handegård, Bjørn Helge (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-04-16)
    Exposure to peer aggression and bullying victimization are both expressions of peer victimization but distinct constructs among adolescents.

    This article explores the extent of activities in child welfare investigations. Several studies have reported that families can experience an investigation as both stressful and intrusive (Harris 2012; Tembo and Studsrød 2019). The extent of the investigation and its relation to reported concerns is important to better understand the investigation phase. The aim of this study was to examine which ...

  • NAVs brukermøter med flyktninger og unge voksne 

    Douglas, Marcela; Kane, Aina Aune (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2021)
    Flyktninger og unge voksne er to ulike og sammensatte grupper, som til tross for ulikheter innad og på tvers har fellestrekk i sin livssituasjon. Et hovedfunn i dette arbeidet er at flyktninger og unge voksne til tross for ulikheter har noen av de samme utfordringene knyttet til utenforskap som gir ekstra utfordringer i møte med arbeidslivet. I dette kapitlet tar vi utgangspunkt i at det å være i ...

    Skoglund, Jeanette; Thørnblad, Renee (Chronicle; Kronikk, 2018)
