SOCIAL VULNERABILITY FACTORS FOR CHILDREN IN AN INSTITUTION IN ROMANIA

Ayla HJORTHOLD

Abstract


This article is a revised version of my bachelor’s thesis at the Norwegian University NTNU. The title “Social vulnerability factors for children in an institution in Romania” reflects the research question “Which social vulnerability factors are disabled children who lives in an institution in Romania exposed to?” The theme was chosen based on my last practical training that was carried out in the city of Iaşi, Romania. The methods used are literary studies, observations during my placement at an institution in Romania and theory on the subject. My main conclusion say that the phenomenon “institutionalized children” exists because of many factors such as poverty and cultural legacy and that the scope of those social vulnerability factors are broad and complex challenges children with disabilities in Romania are subjected to.
