    Universal old-age pension in an aging China: can China learn from Sweden?2016In: International Social Work, ISSN 0020-8728, E-ISSN 1461-7234, Vol. 59, no 6, p. 922-937Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This work addresses the two questions of how China can respond to its rapidly aging population and whether China can learn from the experiences of Sweden when establishing a universal pension system. Two different demographic transitions are analysed: the slowly aging Swedish population, and the rapidly aging Chinese population. This work discusses adaptations and dilemmas in the labour market and in family structures in response to balances and imbalances in these demographic structures. Measuring instruments need to be adapted to a changing situation. Family care contributions must be recognized. What is considered a fair distribution of welfare must be further analysed.

    Orphanhood and mistreatment drive children to leave home: A study from early AIDS-affected Kagera region, Tanzania2017In: International Social Work, ISSN 0020-8728, E-ISSN 1461-7234, Vol. 60, no 5, p. 1218-1232Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this mixed-method study was to explore the trajectories of leaving home, and views and experiences among children and youth in the Kagera region in Tanzania, who have lived on the streets or been domestic workers. The main results showed that orphanhood and mistreatment were the main reasons for leaving home: few children lived with their parents before they left, and leaving home was a complex process over several years where three trajectories were identified. The children who had left home showed strong agency and competency but lived in vulnerable conditions, especially young children living on the streets.

    It also takes a village: developing community mental health2002In: International Social Work, ISSN 0020-8728, E-ISSN 1461-7234, Vol. 45, no 3, p. 305-314Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The community mental health philosophy which guides the development of the limited resources available in Africa, is one that offers us in the developed world much to consider, as we continue to struggle with issues of community integration for those experiencing psychiatric illness. Interviews with practitioners and policy-makers in Ghana, West Africa, as well as a review of local projects and publications, comprise an attempt to describe and contrast our various approaches.
