A Study of Cases in the County Board Concerning Care Orders

The project deals with the Child Welfare Service’s and the County Social Welfare Boards’ handling of compulsory care order cases in ethnic minority families.

The data consists of 91 anonymized and non-anonymized decisions from the County Social Welfare Board, as well as 17 case files from the archives of the Oslo and Akershus County Social Welfare Board. 

Considering these data restrictions, the project will no be an exhaustive mapping of the Child Welfare Service's work. Instead, we will enlighten some of the topics that stand out and highlight some of the Child Welfare Service's work with ethnic minority families that can be problematic.
