Using Swedish longitudinal registry data for a national cohort sample of siblings, in which some were placed in foster care and others remained in their birth parents’ care, this study asks whether long-term foster care ensures improved life chances.
The research question examined in this study is whether unaccompanied minors (UAMs) in compulsory care receive more restrictive actions by compulsory care staff compared to their counterparts who are non-UAMs.
Using Swedish registry national data, this study explored the relationship between immigration-country of birth status, psychosocial risk factors, and child compulsory care for parents with risky substance use (RSU).
Using Swedish longitudinal register data on 2.167 children with experience of long-term foster care, this study explores the hypothesized mediating role of foster parents’ educational attainment on foster children’s educational outcomes, here conceptualized as having poor school performance at age 15 and only primary education at age 26.
With an ambition of supporting the design of effective preventive child welfare measures targeting children in out-of-home care (OHC), the overall aim of this thesis is to examine education as a possible intervention path for improving their development and overall life chances.
The purpose of this study was to outline prerequisites for interventions aimed at school performance for children in foster care, related to those in normal population studies.
This descriptive policy analysis examines the position of infants’ rights in the family service orientated child welfare systems of Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden when being placed in out-of-home care.
The thesis consists of four interrelated empirical studies that address different aspects of poor educational outcomes among children with out-of-home care (OHC) experience by means of analyses of longitudinal survey and register data, and evaluations of two interventions aimed at improving their basic academic skills.
