Abstract [en]

This essay, ‘In the name of a nation’, uses Carol Bacchi’s What’s the Problem Represented tobe?-approach to investigate how gender equality is represented in official documents from theSwedish Armed Forces. By drawing on theories of gender and nation, I trace historical ideasand symbols connected to the defence of the nation and relate them to the problemrepresentations. The study shows that the main problem represented to be is a lack of womenin the organisation and to ‘fix’ this, women are also the subjects for measures. Gendermainstreaming the organisation is also considered as representing and reproducing theSwedish nationalist political project.
