More than just forced marriage : A study about the professional's perspective on children and youth in Sweden who are being forced into marriage against their will (English)
Abstract [sv]

Den här studien syftar till att undersöka det professionella perspektivet på livssituationen för de barn och unga i Sverige som blir eller riskerar att bli bortgifta. Studien fokuserar även på att identifiera eventuella svårigheter i de professionellas arbete samt hur professionella beskriver problematiken kring bortgifte av barn och unga. För att undersöka detta har vi genomfört kvalitativa intervjuer med skolkuratorer och socialsekreterare som arbetat med dessa individer. I vår analys har vi diskuterat förekomsten av kontroll, tvång, våld och frivillighet som vi funnit i intervjuerna med de professionella. I studien betonas även hur svårdefinierat begreppet bortgifte är och att det bör förstås i sin kontext. Utöver detta har vi även redogjort för de svårigheter barn och unga kan uppleva som blivit placerade på skyddade boenden på grund av risken för att bli bortgifta. Resultatet har tolkats utifrån teorier om patriarkala strukturer och hederskulturer eftersom vi finner dessa teorier relevanta för vår studie samt för att de påtalats av de professionella under intervjuerna.

Abstract [en]

This study aims to examine the professional perspective to the life situation of children and youth in Sweden that is being forced into marriage. The study also focuses on identifying eventual difficulties in the professionals work and how the professionals describe the problem with children and youth being forced into marriage. In order to examine this, we have conducted qualitative interviews with school counsellors and social workers that have worked with these individuals. In our analysis we have discussed the occurrence of control, coercion, violence and free will that we have found in the interviews with the professionals. The study also emphasizes what a hard-defined concept forced marriage is and that it should be understood in its context. In addition, we have also explained the difficulties the children and youth may experience that have been placed in shelters because of the risk of being forced into marriage. The result has been interpreted from theories of patriarchal structures and honor cultures because we find these theories relevant for our study and because the professionals have talked about them during the interviews.
