This chapter looks at the performance of the Swedish welfare system in terms of the way it responds to violence against children. Such a broadening of the critique also further problematises the idea of the Nordic welfare regime being, in any simple sense, ‘welfare progressive’. The chapter explores how oppressive power relations associated with age, ethnicity, and gender interact and shape responses to men's violence in families. It brings together many of the themes addressed in the previous chapters, places them within a broader welfare perspective, and links the contributions in this book to current international discussions on welfare regimes and power relations.

Keywords:   Swedish welfare system, violence against children, family violence, domestic violence, power relations
