NORWAY: Critical comments on Norway's submission to the Committee on the Rights of the Child

In the fourth periodic report by the Norwegian state the description of the working of the Child Protection system in Norway is inaccurate and misleading. In Part 1 of this document the authors give several critical comments to Norway's report with regard to the Child Protection system. They show that current practices in the Norwegian Child Protection system are not compatible with the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. The Norwegian state thereby violates the rights of many children to grow up in their natural family environment. In Part 2 the authors suggest remedial measures to strengthen children's and families' rights.
