Fafo’s research on various care and welfare services also adresses the Norwegian Child Welfare Services.
Mapping the development since the Child Welfare Services reform in 2004 is one example of our research on this field. Another important issue for us is the cooperation and coordination between the central and municipal levels of these services. The same applies to developments within variuos forms of relief efforts as well as foster homes.
Child welfare research at Fafo involves researchers with backgrounds in sociology, social work and economics.
