About me - Maria Eriksson, Professor of Social Work
One of my primary research interests is how different forms of inequality impact upon policy and practice as regards parenthood and children’s rights. Issues related to men’s violence against women and children are central in this research. Ongoing projects include a study of how the Swedish framework for assessment BBIC ”BBIC – Barns Behov I Centrum” [Children’s needs in the centre] is used in cases of intimate partner violence, a project on young carers, and a project developing assessments of risk and safety when children are exposed to or subjected to violence in their family. I am also coordinating a Nordic research network and protection of and support to children exposed to intimate partner violence.
