    Blaming violent men - A challenge to the Swedish criminal law on provocation2014In: Women's Studies: International Forum, ISSN 0277-5395, E-ISSN 1879-243X, Vol. 46, p. 88-95Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Feminists have long criticized how provocations narrative of a woman 'asking for it' functions as a legal 'abuse excuse' for violent men and confirms their rationalizations and justifications for violence. This article aims to challenge a particular aspect of provocation in Swedish criminal law namely, a tendency to individualize and subjectivize culpability in a way that suggests that the individual male perpetrator's specific understanding of his violence should be the perspective from which to understand and judge his violence. Criminal legal culpability is approached as an important aspect in the relationships between gender, power, and violence, and the author argues that the notion of culpability should be changed in two respects. The tendency to regard emotions as 'factual' should be replaced by an evaluative view on emotions and men's responsibility for their emotional responses to women should be judged by acknowledging how values and reasons intersect with power relations

    Domstolars bemötande: några kommentarer till Förtroendeutredningens förslag2009In: Svensk Juristtidning, ISSN ISSN 0039-6591, no 7, p. 774-780Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I Förtroendeutredningens betänkande "Ökat förtroende för domstolarna" behandlas domstolarnas kvalitetsarbete, bemötande, domskrivning och mediekontakter. Ombedd att kommentera betänkandet har jag valt att inrikta mig på frågan om domstolars bemötande av parter och bevispersoner, särskilt vad avser institutionellt bemötande, personbemätande samt utbildningsfrågor. Utredningen står för ett viktigt perspektivskifte där brukarnas upplevelser liksom frågor om värdegrund och motverkande av diskriminering lyfts fram. Frågan om domstolars bemötande blir väl belyst i betänkandet och om utredningens förslag genomförs kommer bemötandefrågorna onekligen att ta ett viktigt steg framåt.

    Immigrant Women Facing Male Partner Violence - Gender, Race and Power in Swedish Alien and Criminal Law2012In: feminists@law, ISSN 2046-9551, Vol. 2, no 1, p. 1-26Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article deals with the ways in which gender and race are recognized and addressed in Swedish criminal and alien law with reference to men’s violence against women with insecure residency. It offers an analysis of Swedish preparatory works and case law which seeks to unmask and problematize intersecting power structures and discourses in law. The analysis shows that a perspective on men’s violence against women as related to gender and power to some extent has been implemented in and had significant effects on criminal law, while the significance of race and racism has not been properly acknowledged. Swedish alien law is blatantly lacking in an understanding both in terms of gender power relations and of the ways in which men’s violence against women can be racialized or culturalized. The main conclusion is that there are significant processes of ‘othering’ abused women in both legal areas, but especially in alien law where abused migrant women are constructed as unwanted in the Swedish society when no longer fulfilling their function as men’s partners. The author argues that the notions that men’s violence against women always harms women and is about the assertion of power and control over women should be placed at the centre of an intersectional approach to law and policy. Such an approach will hopefully contribute to counteract current Swedish problems associated with a simplified approach to gender, race and men’s violence against women.

    Straffrätt och mäns våld mot kvinnor: Om straffrättens förmåga att producera jämställdhet2007Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Men’s physical and psychological violence against women in intimate relationships is a serious social problem and contravenes the political goal of gender equality. Over the last few decades men’s violence against women has become a central issue in Swedish gender equality politics. Criminal law reforms have been carried through with the objective of enhancing criminal legal protection for women and promoting gender equality.

    The starting point of this thesis, however, is that the ability of criminal law to promote gender equality must be questioned. Instead criminal law is at risk of producing and reproducing hindrances to gender equality and criminal legal protection for women. It is such processes in criminal law that are explored and analysed in this thesis, inspired by feminist legal theory and social constructionist theory, and through the application of discourse analysis.

    The main purpose of the thesis is to explore and analyze how violence, perpetrator and victim are constructed in the criminal legal discourse of men’s physical and psychological violence against women in intimate relationships and what legal or social consequences these constructions might have. A second aim of the thesis is to throw a light on and analyze two major criminal legal aspects of men’s physical and psychological violence against women in intimate relationships. Firstly, how criminal law deals with issues of responsibility for the violence. Secondly, how questions about the use of criminal law are linked to possibilities and problems from a crime victim-perspective.

    The analysis indicates two major problem areas. In the first, the victim is treated in relation to stereotypical conceptions of women exposed to violence. A male-gendered discourse on responsibility limits the possibilities for women to behave as actors in relation to men and still being offered the subject position of victim. In addition, a focus on questions such as “Why doesn’t she leave?” and “Why doesn’t she cooperate with the criminal justice system?” produces an understanding of the main problem of violence as being related to the victim. The second problem area concerns a tension between how criminal legal reforms, aimed at enhancing criminal legal protection for women and promoting gender equality, have been justified by the legislator and how mainstream criminal legal scholarship argues in the issue of use of criminal law.

    The ability of criminal law to produce gender equality: judicial discourses in the Swedish criminal legal system2010In: Violence against Women, ISSN 1077-8012, E-ISSN 1552-8448, Vol. 16, no 2, p. 173-188Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The main aim of the Swedish Women’s Peace reform in 1998 was to enhance criminal legal protection for women exposed to violence in heterosexual relationships and to promote gender equality. However, these ambitions risk being contravened in a masculinist criminal legal system. One problem concerns how the victim is constructed in criminal legal cases. The author argues that moral balancing and discourses of responsibility and guilt in Swedish cases constrain the agency possible for women and suggest that a more comprehensive policy in Sweden must be developed to include violent men, their agency, and their responsibility for the violence.

    Integration av genusperspektiv i grundutbildningen: en modell för kompetensutveckling av lärare2006In: Tänk efter, tänk nytt, tänk om: den sjunde universitetspedagogiska konferensen 2-3 mars 2005 / [ed] Margareta Erhardsson och Katarina Winka, Umeå: Umeå universitet , 2006, p. 307-316Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Många modeller för integration av genus i grundutbildningen utgår från att inte bara ”inkallade genusspecialister” utan även den ordinarie läraren på kursen ska integrera genus. Kompetensutveckling av lärare framhålls som nödvändig i detta sammanhang. Vårterminen 2005 utvecklades och genomfördes en vidareutbildningskurs för lärare vid juridiska institutionen för att möta just detta behov. Vi är fyra lärare på institutionen som har utvecklat och genomfört kursen inom ramen för vårt engagemang i det genusrättsliga seminariet. Kursen genomfördes som en seminarieserie och fick namnet; Integration av genusperspektiv i juridikundervisningen – varför, vad och hur? Samtidigt såg vi behov av att utveckla en mer generell modell som kunde användas av andra institutioner eftersom det saknas en sådan kurs vid Umeå universitet. I denna uppsats vill vi presentera seminarieserien och dela med oss av våra tankar kring hur kursen skulle kunna fungera som en generell modell.
