Abstract [en]

Barnahus in Örebro started in April 2009, an activity engaged in cooperation between authorities when children become victims of serious crimes. The activity is primarily based on Children Convention articles 1,2,3,12,19,34,39,40. The purpose of this study was to examine how the interaction at Barnahus in Örebro works according to the social workers, and this based on the best interest of the child on the basis of the UN Convention on the rights of the child. A qualitative approach has been applied and semi-structured interviews used. The sample consisted of five social workers in Örebro County involved in Barnahus’s cooperation. The result shows that the interaction works rather well considering the activity is relative new and the social workers are quite satisfied. The opportunities following cooperation, according to the social workers, are a faster process, the exchange of information, and different perspectives on the child's situation. Restrictions are, for example, the extended time the police’s process takes and the secrecy legislation.

 

The result indicates that the social workers believes that the children's rights are applied, some articles more than others. The social workers expresses an ambition concerning the best interest of the child but different opinions of the child perspective, which is an important part in the best interest of the child, is found. According to the social workers interaction can provide children a faster access to help through the psychiatry of children and adolescent (BUP), only need to tell their story once and don’t have to meet a lot of authorities. The result shows a risk that the legal perspective can dominate and affect the protection of the best interest of the child when the focus is on crime and suspects.
