The Children's convention becomes law : An interview study on the attitudes of SiS employees (English)
Abstract [sv]

Barnkonventionen blir svensk lag den 1 januari 2020. Regeringen anser att det behövts säkerställas att barnkonventionen används på alla nivåer inom landet.

Syftet med studien är att undersöka om/hur professioner inom statens institutionsstyrelse upplever att barnkonventionen kommer att förändra deras arbetssätt.

Studiens resultat utgår ifrån semistrukturerade intervjuer med 7 individer från SiS. Denna studie använde sig av den transteoretiska modellen för beteendeförändring och teorin om planerat beteende. För analys av materialet har den kvalitativa metoden tematisk analys använts. I resultatet av den tematiska analysen framträdde tre teman: attityder, kunskap och syn på egenkontroll i tillägg till ett övergripande tema rörande beteendeförändringar.

Resultatet visar att respondenterna, beroende på yrkesroll, hade olika uppfattningar om hur de kommande förändringarna skulle komma att påverka deras framtida arbetssituation. Det visades att beroende på uppfattad egenkontroll och egen kunskap om barnkonventionen var man mer eller mindre benägen att ändra sitt beteende. Studien kan utgöra ett bidrag till forskningen om attityders inflytande på beteendeförändringar. I slutdiskussionen belyses vidare vikten av ett kunskapslyft bland allmänheten vad gäller barnets rättigheter.

The convention on the Rights of the Child becomes Swedish law on January 1, 2020. The Government believes that it is necessary to ensure that the convention is applied at all levels in the country.

The purpose of the study is to investigate how professionals within the National Board of Institutional Care experience whether the convention will change their way of working.

The study results are based on semi-structured interviews with 7 people from SiS. This study used the trans-theoretical model of behavior change and the theory of planned behavior. For the analysis of the material, the qualitative method thematic analysis was used. In the results of the thematic analysis, three themes emerged: attitudes, knowledge, and views on self-control in addition to an overall theme regarding behavioral changes.

The results show that the respondents, depending on their professional role, had different perceptions about how the upcoming changes would affect their future work situation. It was shown that, depending on perceived self-control and own knowledge of the convention that affected if they were inclined to change their behavior. The study may be a contribution to research on attitudes influence on behavioral changes. The final discussion further highlights the importance of a knowledge lift among the public regarding the rights of the child.
