Project description

The project studies effects of the extended work in schools against degrading treatment. Our focus is on children's socialisation and identity development by way of performing interviews with children, parents, school personnel and municipality officials.

Research questions:

  • How du pupils and parents reflect and act referring to degrading treatment and complaints?
  • Are there differences in pupils' and parents' reflections and actions that can be related to local differences in schools' and municipalities' work against degrading treatment?
  • How can pupils and young adults socialisation and identity development be problematized and understood in relation to their reflections and actions when it comes to degrading treatment and complaints as well as to local differences?
