Adoption in Norwegian Child Protection

Project Team: Marit Skivenes, Hege Stein Helland & Øyvind Samnøy Tefre

Financed by The Norwegian Directorate for Children, Youth and Family Affairs. 2016-2018.

The general objective of this project is to examine how legislation on adoption is being applied and implemented by the front line and the courts. The project further aims to contribute to the proper usage of adoption as a child protective measure, and to identify factors that may assist decision-makers in their assessment of suitable measures for children in long-term out-of-home placements.
