In this article Bjørnebekk argue that Norwegian welfare system society has succeeded in building a political and social culture where main dynamic as well as static societal factors that generate crime and violence on macro level are not present or are put out of circulation. The factors that remain are those related to structures in old and new media, and to moving patterns that create vulnerabilities in children. Few Norwegian children of today are influenced by classical external macro risk factors that generate violence and antisociality. Bjørnebekk states that the risks belong mainly to the meso and micro levels, and that prevention and treatment have to focus on these levels to address the problems. In spite of a high quality life in Norway, some children develop serious chronic violence and antisocial patterns. Their problems are complex and deep and have to be treated as such. Norway has built linkages between central authorities, national research institutes that educate experts needed to implement evidence-based programs, regional competence centers, and local communities and agencies. The linkages bind theory and practice together and make it possible to offer effective evidence-based programs to offer effective evidence-based programs to prevent and treat violence and conduct problems across the nation if the programs are implemented as prescribed.
