Children's relation to the world of adults : aquantitative study of how children want to meet authorities (English)
Abstract [en]

This thesis exceed from the United Nations convention on the rights of the child, which implies children's right to freedom of information, freedom of speech and opinion. Furthermore, the estimated number of children who might be in danger of some sort is according to previous research substantial. Therefore, our study investigates how children in grade 6 in Sweden want to take contact with an administrative authority or another public institution through a quantitative study that is based in a questionnaire.

Trust is key determinant in whether individuals choose to take contact with a public institution and administrative authorities. Therefore this study examines the informants' trust in public institutions in accordance with Giddens theory of trust.

83 informants from grade 6 participated in this research and these children where from 6 different schools situated in the midst of Sweden.

The results from this research showed that our informants' have fundamental conditions for taking contact with a public institution and administrative authorities if they are in need for help. They have access to several different communication technologies and are often members of social media websites and apps. They also express a trust toward the public institutions and administrative authorities, but even though they primarily want to take contact with their parents if the feel sad, angry or scared. In a situation where they cannot take contact with family or friends, the majority of the informants choose the option of calling a public institution and administrative authorities.

Abstract [sv]

Studien utgår ifrån FN:s barnkonvention angående barns rätt till åsikts-, yttrande- och informationsfrihet. I samband med att få orosanmälningar görs och det stora mörkertalet kring barn som misstänks fara illa, enligt litteraturstudier, undersöker vår studie, genom en kvantitativ ansats med enkätundersökning som metod, hur barn i årkurs 6 skulle vilja ta kontakt med en myndighet eller andra samhällsorgan.

Utifrån Giddens teori om tillit undersöker studien informanternas tillit till olika instanser, då tillit anses vara en avgörande faktor huruvida individer väljer att ta kontakt med myndigheter eller andra samhällsorgan.

Studiens informanter bestod av 83 barn i årkurs 6 ifrån sex olika skolor i Mellansverige.

Resultatet av vår undersökning visade att våra informanter har förutsättningar som krävs för att ta kontakt med myndigheter/samhällsorgan om de skulle vara i behov av hjälp. De har tillgång till olika kommunikationsteknik och är oftast medlemmar på sociala medier samt uttrycker sig även att ha tillit till både skola, myndigheter och organisationer. Trots detta väljer barn i årskurs 6 att främst kontakta sina föräldrar om de känner känslor som ledsen, arg eller rädd. Vid en situation där de inte kan kontakta familj eller vänner utan de måste kontakta en myndighet så väljer majoriteten av våra informanter att ringa.
