The international anti-liberal right versus Barnevernet?

Date/Time: 22 August 2022, 14:15-15:15
Venue: Kulturhuset

We know that some of the organisations accross Europe who actively oppose sexual and reproductive rigthts, also voice criticism against the Norwegian Child Protection Services (Barnevernet). But does this mean that the international mobilisation against Barnevernet is part of a “culture war” from Europe’s anti-liberal right? Or that international actors play a role in the almost 40 cases brought to the European Court of Human Rights? What do we know  about those who challenge the Norwegian Child Protection Services – in social and traditional media, on the streets of Europe and beyond, and in courts? This roundtable presents preliminary findings from the DIPA/LawTransform research project LEGITIMACY CHALLENGES and discusses how we best should go about uncovering the (potentially) missing links.
