More about the book
About the book
Rights are at stake every time a citizen encounters the welfare state through a welfare institution or through contact with welfare professionals. This anthology scrutinizes how rights are actualized in such meetings, with a special focus on children in the Nordic welfare states. The anthology encompasses conceptual and empirical analyses of rights in welfare states. Rights are discussed both with reference to conventions and as general concepts. Thus the anthology may be worth reading for those interested in the concept of rights as well as for those interested in welfare practices directed at children.
