A school in transition: Different forms of governance and regulations in childhood In the introduction the authors and their various contributions to the theme “A school in transition: Different forms of governance and regulations in childhood” are briefly presented. The authors are members in the research project “Childhood in multiple contexts: Schools, leisure and families in transition” (www.mangkontextuellbarn dom.se/). The starting point for the project is the observation that childhood currently is characterised by a growing number of contexts. The number of involved actors increases and we notice a transition between different social environments. Furthermore, pre-school and school function probably more than ever as the institutions in which normality and deviance are defined, and through which control is exercised by different assessments. The project discusses these changes in childhood. We visualise and discuss the expectations placed upon children as they are formulated in different social contexts and the relations between them, for example between family and school. The project is carried out by a multidisciplinary research group. The researchers are presenting their work here, with the exception of two of the doctoral students (Kalle Jonasson and Balli Lelinge), who will soon present their dissertations. The empirical work has mostly been done in Malmö, a multicultural city that is undergoing a transition from an industrial to a so called ‘knowledge’ city. In the following articles our focus is on a multicultural school in transition and governance. We discuss regulating and disciplining practices, as well as norms for inclusion/exclusion. The comprehensive aim of the study is to generate a theoretical understanding and provide an empirical analysis of childhood under different social, economic and demographic conditions. The outcomes will provide us with a greater understanding of the real challenges under which schools and teachers work. The project is financed by the Swedish Research Council during the period of 2006-2011.
