Six children's rights organizations wrote a debate article Wednesday in newspaper Dagens Nyheter, stating several points that they believe must be improved upon in order for children's situation in Sweden to get better.

The article was written ahead of the UN's Committee on the Rights of the Child release of their report Wednesday, which could include criticism of how Sweden is not fully complying with the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The Dagens Nyheter debate article suggests investing more in education, not only for teachers but also for authorities who often come into contact with children.

Furthermore, they say that the Ombudsman for Children in Sweden must be given a mandate to receive complaints and that it should be possible for children to get their complaints to the UN's Committee on the Rights of the Child. This is, according to the authors, to ensure that children receive adequate redress if their rights are violated.
