A Reconsideration of Two "Welfare Paradises" Research and Policy Responses to Men's Violence in Denmark and Sweden
2008 (English)In: Men and masculinities.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This article compares the situation in Denmark and Sweden regarding research and policy making around the issue of men-s violence to women and children. It does so by drawing on two comprehensive reviews of academic and policy data in those countries that were part of a broader European Union-funded project. Although the picture emerging from this comparison is complex, the overall conclusion is that in Sweden over recent years many more examples can be found of a critical, power-oriented approach than is the case in Denmark.
