When State welfare proves to be a mere conduit rather than an absolute guarantee for children’s rights… Sweden’s sound social democratic welfare regime accounts for descent living and rights enjoyed by children. Not discounting the fact that children’s rights in Sweden score highly to the extent that many rightly contend that Sweden is one of the best places to raise a child, the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child (2009), UNICEF and Save the Children have continued to urge Sweden to transpose the Convention into Swedish law acknowledging that Sweden adheres to a dualist system. The Government in response has reiterated that she does not see any need at present to transpose the Convention into Swedish law. But why bother with a country having such a strong welfare system? But again wait a minute, why would a country be reluctant to consider the gaps in the “Transformation” process vis-à-vis the benefits of “Incorporation?” State sovereignty or something else? Overall, State welfare is fundamental to championing children’s rights but does not offer an absolute guarantee. If it did, concern for children’s rights would be relegated to non-welfare states. Incidentally not!
