RDV: Children’s consent to welfare services (Tarja Pösö)

February 10 @ 14:15 - 15:30

Tarja Pösö holds a position as Professor at the Faculty of Social Sciences (Tampere University, Finland) and is a professor II at the Department of Administration and Organization Theory (University of Bergen). Pösö has extensive experience in the studies of child protection, social work and institutional practices, with a keen interest in cross-cultural perspectives and developing methods and ethics for child protection studies. Her particular research interests are: 1) How social workers navigate among different sources of information and interest when making decisions and assessing the outcome of their decisions in child protection, 2) How the child welfare systems perceive and act with migrant children, 3) How the principle of ‘the child’s best interest’ is included in the decision-making process. https://discretion.uib.no/people/staff/tarja-poso-2/
