2016 (English)In: Childhood, ISSN 0907-5682, E-ISSN 1461-7013Article in journal (Refereed) Epub ahead of print
Drawing on the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the article highlights various conceptions of violence at a Swedish boarding school and is based on a critical discourse analysis of different educational and media documents. The investigation indicates that ambitions to protect children from violence need to overcome the dichotomy of private and public in order to protect children affected by violence in the borderland between the private and public spheres.
