  • Researcher at the research project "Adoption as a Child Welfare Measure". The project aims to examine how laws on adoption are being implemented and practiced in the front line and in the courts. The project aims to create a knowledge base that can contribute to the proper use of adoption as child welfare measure, and also shed light on best practices and identify factors that can help decision-makers to consider measures for children in long-term placements. The project is funded by The Norwegian Directorate for Children, Youth and Family Affairs and runs from November 2016 to December 2018.
