Summary and Report to the European Parliament Petitions Committee: Child Removal Cases in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden

Summary and Report to the European Parliament Petitions Committee: Child Removal Cases in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden
This Report was made by 40 Nordic Law professionals.

The purpose of this Report is to direct the attention of the European Parliament towards the laws of the Nordic countries regarding compulsory care of children and young persons, and the implementation of the said provisions.

The Nordic countries in general, and Sweden in particular, implement these provisions in a way that leads to unusually high numbers of children being removed from the care of their parents and being placed in foster homes every year. In the case of Sweden, this is the result of the Social Services Act and the Law with Special Provisions on the Care of Young Persons, which most often leads to compulsory care, on arbitrary grounds.
