    Troubling solidarity: anti-racist protest in a digitalized time2018In: Women's Studies Quarterly, ISSN 0732-1562, E-ISSN 1934-1520, Vol. 46, no 3-4, p. 120-136Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Racist hate crimes have increased in Sweden since 2006 when reports started, but they have also been followed by a variety of protests. This article analyzes the so-called #HijabUppropet (#HijabOutcry), a call initiated by Muslim feminist activists in response to a racist attack on a Muslim woman, which encouraged all "sisters" in Sweden to temporarily veil themselves in solidarity. The hijab outcry was widely heard and both celebrated and debated. Drawing on postcolonial feminist theory, this article shows how the initial protest against racism was partly reduced to a matter of being for or against the veil and the right to choose. Despite intentions to normalize the veil, the flow of comments and pictures on social media turned veils into examples of odd, exotic, and beautiful elements that enrich Swedish culture. The white secular subject was again reinstalled as the ideal and it seemed as though Muslim women could not pass as agents of Swedish feminist solidarity. Yet, at the same time, the debate in the aftermath of the hijab outcry had the effect of initiating an uneasy feeling of not belonging among white non-Muslim participators. This was a feeling that might affect future acts of solidarity—confronting a Swedish context of secular pride and whiteness—where Muslim women must struggle to be recognized as political subjects.

    (Un-)veiling the west: Burkini-gate, Princess Hijab and dressing as struggle for postsecular integration2016In: Culture Unbound. Journal of Current Cultural Research, ISSN 2000-1525, E-ISSN 2000-1525, Vol. 8, no 3, p. 263-283Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The ban of the burkini in the summer of 2016 in France is the latest stage in a long political history, where the French depreciation or fear of the veil, and of Islam, has come to play a more significant role since the end of the cold war. Unveiling female bodies at the beach in Nice expose conditioned values of the French republic. In this context, drawing black veils on public advertisements becomes a performative act commenting on consumerism, religion, secularity, and the imagined Muslim woman. In this article we discuss freedom and integration in "third spaces" via an analysis of "hijabisation" in street art and the official reactions against certain types of beachwear. In line with Talal Asad (2006) we want to raise the issue on how the secular state addresses the pain of people who are obliged to give up part of their religious identity to become acceptable. Race-thinking was once an explicit part of celebrated values like modernity, secularity, democracy and human rights. However, the fact that the idea of races has been erased from articulations of Western nations and international bodies does not mean that traces of race-thinking in the heritage from the enlightenment are gone. By following Princess Hijab and the "Burkini-gate" a nationalist fantasy intertwined with the idea of the secular state reveals itself and acts of un/dressing emerge as signs of integration revealing a challenged imperialist paradigm.

    Secularities – firstness through religion and gender

    In this article we explore how the positing religion as other simultaneously makes secularism a firstness. How does actors use and embodies secularism and reproduce it as an objective and neutral space – a firstness. The secular subject is being represented as free and rational in contrast to an imagined religious, traditional, and often Muslim other. By studying Swedish contemporary debates about freedom of speech, veils, gender equality, and the in/tolerant society, we aim to unpack how secularism is done in a Swedish neoliberal contemporary context. Inspired by Talal Asad, we wish to contribute to the undermining of the tightly knit weave of secularism, reason and critique in Western discourse.

    Reforming Lao teacher education to include females and ethnic minorities: exploring possibilities and constraints2017In: Asia Pacific Journal of Education, ISSN 1742-6855, Vol. 37, no 1, p. 103-115Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores possibilities and constraints for the inclusion of femaleand ethnic minority students in Lao education in order to provide educationfor all. Females and ethnic minorities have traditionally been disadvantagedin Lao education and reforms for the inclusion of these groups are therefore welcome. The article provides rich information about how teachers and students in four teacher training institutions in Lao PDR experience inclusionary reform. The results show that inclusion strategies benefit both female and ethnic minority students, but in different ways. Female students from the majority ethnic group generally benefitted from the allowance for individual learning, since this provided space for them to act outside of gendered expectations. Ethnic minority students, however, benefitted more from the opportunity to work in smaller group settings, since they could receive support from other students, especially in language, which often proved to be a constraint for students with a different first language from the language of instruction. Although there are positive developments regarding the inclusion of females and ethnic minorities, there is still need to further develop and strengthen these efforts in order to support the continued inclusion of disadvantaged groups in Lao society.

    Sober business: shared value creation between the insurance industry and the temperance movement2019In: Business History, ISSN 0007-6791, E-ISSN 1743-7938, Vol. 61, no 2, p. 322-342Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines how the Swedish insurance company Ansvar established and expended an international business from the 1930s to the 1990s with the motives to insure total abstainers while battling against alcohol abuse in society. Anvar represented a for-profit business that aimed at addressing social issues. The case provides a historical example of how shared value was created between the company and the temperance movement for the joint goal of improving society through temperance. The article argues that the company’s decline was due to changing values, where alcohol was no longer seen as a threat to society.

    "Det är en kvinnogrej, alla klarar av det": En feministisk analys av kvinnors berättelser om traumatiska förlossningar2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med min uppsats har varit att undersöka hur tre kvinnor genom sina berättelser om jobbiga förlossningar gjort sina upplevelser begripliga i relation till normer om kvinnlighet. Undersökningen består av tre semistrukturerade intervjuer vilka jag, med ett narrativt angreppssätt, analyserat genom att göra en innehållsanalys och en formanalys. Resultatet visar att det i kvinnornas berättelser framkommer tydliga normer kopplade till kvinnlighet. Normerna är flera, men handlar på det stora hela om att barnafödande är någonting naturligt som kvinnor ska klara av utan problem. Då kvinnornas berättelser handlar om upplevelser som avviker från denna norm måste de hela tiden positionera sig själva och sina upplevelser i relation till normen för att kunna förstå sin upplevelse och göra den legitim. Mina slutsatser är att normer kring en ”normal” förlossning är ett sätt att genom upprepning upprätthålla vad det betyder att vara kvinna i dagens Sverige. Kön är ingen fast kategori, utan konstrueras hela tiden; också genom förlossningar. Även fast det finns en normerande makt i strukturerna tar mina informanter också själva makten över sitt subjektsskapande när de genom sina berättelser konstruerar sina upplevelser.

    Same-sex parental leave: Legislation and equality2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Sweden is known to have one of the world's most generous parental insurances, both in length and flexibility which has led to a high maternity rate and more women in paid work. The political work on equality in Sweden has the goal that women and men shall have the same power to shape society and their own lives. This has led to legislation aimed at getting fathers to stay more at home with their children. There has been plenty of research on this subject so this study goes off the main track and looks at how legislation around parenthood works for same-sex couples and if paternal leave is shared more equally between same-sex parents than heterosexual parents. Discourse analysis of the legislation and a survey with same-sex families followed by interviews indicate that samesex couples share parental leave more equally than heterosexual couples. Legislation works well for most same-sex families except for the process of related adoption. Reasons for more equal sharing of parental leave is hard to find but could depend on the fact that same-sex couples have been couples for a longer time, than heterosexual couples, before deciding to have children. Wage gap between men and women is a reason why heterosexual couples do not share equally and it could be vice versa for same-sex couples.

    Abstract [en]

    There has long been ambivalence in the LGBT movement and related research as to the meaning of gay identity in relation to marriage. The article explores changing homonormative discourses of marriage and married men within the Swedish gay press from the mid 1950s to the mid 1980s. Expressions of the changes are a shift in language and in views of extramarital relationships, openness, and gay male identity. As a result of the shift, “married men,” including both “married homosexuals” and “bisexuals,” came to be distinguished from “gays.”

    Practice, practice: notions of training and normality among adults with Asperger Syndrome2012In: Disability Studies Quarterly (DSQ), ISSN 1041-5718, E-ISSN 2159-8371, Vol. 32, no 2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    People with autism are objects of interventions, such as social training, that construct a normate (i.e., neurotypical) subject position. The emerging neurodiverse movements are reconceptualizing the meaning of autism. This paper examines expressions of an emerging counter-hegemonic discourse of Asperger subjectivity in the Swedish neurodiverse movement by exploring an ambivalent discourse of adaptation among adults with autism. The material was gathered during three months of ethnographic fieldwork in an educational setting in Sweden among adults diagnosed with Asperger syndrome. The key meanings linked to the discourse of adaptation concern meaningful versus meaningless training, adaptation to an NT environment or to the person with autism, the meaning of affirmation, and the possibility of understanding the experience of autism. An understanding of adaptation is treated as integral to producing a counter-hegemonic discourse of "normal for an Asperger" and alternative forms of autistic normalcy formulated by adults with autism.

    Mapping the social geographies of autism: online and off-line narratives of neuro-shared and separate spaces2013In: Disability & Society, ISSN 0968-7599, E-ISSN 1360-0508, Vol. 28, no 3, p. 367-379Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper draws together empirical work that has been produced by the authors in two different autistic spaces: the Swedish magazine Empowerment produced by and aimed at adults with autism, and English-speaking autistic communities online. While the two points of data collection are quite different, there are important points of commonality that enable us to explore central issues concerning autistic and neurotypical space and the meanings assigned to these in different contexts. The paper aims to introduce the notion of social geographies of autism, based on talks among adults with autism and a social movement to promote autistic identities, giving examples from our previous work that has spanned both online and off-line spaces. Key issues discussed in the paper include a focus on autistic political platforms and the carving out of both social and political spaces for people with autism. In doing so, neuro-separate and neuro-shared spaces must be negotiated.

    Adaption or recognition of the autistic subject? - reimagining an autistic work life: deconstructing the notion of ‘real jobs’ within the Swedish neurodiverse movement2012In: Journal of Vocational Rehabilitation, ISSN 1052-2263, E-ISSN 1878-6316, Vol. 37, no 3, p. 203-212Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Several researchers stress the importance of listening to autistic adults’ own experiences of work and related issues.This paper critically explores an ambivalent discourse of empowerment using notions of employment and work life in the Swedishautistic self-advocacy movement. The discourse analysis is based on articles from the Swedish autistic self-advocacy magazineEmpowerment. In the data, three key themes linked to the notion of work are identified: alternative meanings of a “real job”,formulations of work-related problems, and solutions to these problems. We identify two storylines. The first, more dominantone, we call the recreated norm storyline. This storyline, in line with an individual/medical perspective on autism as deficit,represents autism as causing people with autism to have difficulties finding and keeping jobs in the open labour market and asentailing employment support. The second, counter narrative we call the challenged norm storyline. In line with the social modelof disability, it focuses on structural barriers and discrimination against people with autism on the labour market.

    Abstract [en]

    Perspectives on reproduction and developmental disabilities are gradually changing in Sweden. Through this change parents with developmental disabilities are gradually being included within an emergent discourse of “good enough parenting” on certain conditions. The present article explores discourses of reproduction and parenting among adults with developmental disabilities in two Swedish contexts: in a Swedish magazine, “Empowerment”, produced by and aimed at adults with autism, and interviews with people with intellectual disabilities in Sweden. Common to the materials from both studies are a normative reprosexual discourse of parenting and an underlying assumption that parenthood relates to adulthood in the sense that it requires maturity. The stories in the magazine “Empowerment” can be seen as expressing an emergent counter-hegemonic conditional discourse of “good enough parenting” which regards some people with autism as “good enough” parents. In general terms, the stories about parenting in the interview study depict parenting as related to age awareness and, unlike what is found in the material from “Empowerment”, there is no discussion of or reflection on whether or how impairment affects one's opportunity/ability to become a parent.

    Män möter mödravård: om betydelsen av "vi" i mötet med mödrahälsovård, förlossningsvård och BB-vård2016Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In contemporary Sweden it is a matter of course that prospective fathers should be involved in pregnancy, childbirth and care of the newborn. Most fathers are present at the visits to the antenatal clinic, including the ultrasound examination; they participate in parental education classes; and they are present at the birth of their child. Yet many fathers express dissatisfaction with prenatal care, delivery care and postnatal care: they frequently feel excluded, invisible and irrelevant. This study is an attempt to better understand those experiences of exclusion, invisibility and irrelevancy.

    The study is based on interviews with ten Swedish fathers. Their narratives about their encounter with prenatal, delivery and postnatal care were analysed with a phenomenological--hermeneutic narrative approach. Special attention was paid to the way the major characters were positioned in the father's narratives.

    The results can be summarised in three points: (1) The strong focus in health care on the physical aspects of pregnancy and childbirth may make it difficult for prospective and new fathers to find a meaningful position in the encounter with prenatal, delivery and postnatal care. (2) The narratives of the interviewed fathers can be roughly divided into "we"-narratives where the father found an untroubled position and "I"-narratives where he didn't. I take this to mean that the fathers sought a "we"-position where pregnancy and childbirth could become a joint concern for the mother and the father. (3) The difficulty of finding an untroubled position in the encounter with prenatal, delivery and postnatal care is first and foremost a consequence of the fact that the prospective/new father is not pregnant, not of the fact that he is a man. It is whether the body is pregnant or not that matters, not the sex category to which the body belongs. The desired "we"-position can therefore be characterised as gender irrelevant.

    One conclusion is that for prenatal, delivery, and postnatal care to truly involve the expectant mother's partner in pregnancy, childbirth and care of the newborn, they need to seriously consider the question of how they can help the prospective mother's partner to find a position that better includes him/her in this encounter. One possibility is the "we"-position that this study emphasizes. This is a position in which pregnancy, childbirth and care of the newborn is a joint concern for both parents. Making way for a "we"-position also means widening the time perspective from the here-and-now of pregnancy, beyond the approaching childbirth to what comes next: parenthood -- no matter who was pregnant.

    HOW IS THE CONCEPT OF ‘WOMEN AND CHILDREN’REPRESENTED BY TWO HUMANITARIANORGANISATIONS?: HOW IS THE CONCEPT OF ‘WOMEN AND CHILDREN’REPRESENTED BY TWO HUMANITARIANORGANISATIONS?2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to analyse how the concept of ‘women and children’ is represented bytwo humanitarian organisations; International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) andMédecins Sans Frontières (MSF). The analyses concludes that there is (still) an assumptionthat women have an inherent vulnerability and women are often described together with‘children’ as if they are one vulnerable group instead of two. This study suggests aproblematization of the concept since activities planned by humanitarian organisations mayhave a big impact on people’s lives when assuming one group to be more vulnerable thananother.

    Economic crisis, immigrant women and changing availability of intimate partner violence services: a qualitative study of professionals' perceptions in Spain2014In: International Journal for Equity in Health, ISSN 1475-9276, E-ISSN 1475-9276, Vol. 13, article id 79Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction: Since 2008, Spain has been in the throes of an economic crisis. This recession particularly affects the living conditions of vulnerable populations, and has also led to a reversal in social policies and a reduction in resources. In this context, the aim of this study was to explore intimate partner violence (IPV) service providers' perceptions of the impact of the current economic crisis on these resources in Spain and on their capacity to respond to immigrant women's needs experiencing IPV. Methods: A qualitative study was performed based on 43 semi-structured in-depth interviews to social workers, psychologists, intercultural mediators, judges, lawyers, police officers and health professionals from different services dealing with IPV (both, public and NGO's) and cities in Spain (Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia and Alicante) in 2011. Transcripts were imported into qualitative analysis software (Atlas.ti), and analysed using qualitative content analysis. Results: We identified four categories related to the perceived impact of the current economic crisis: a) "Immigrant women have it harder now", b) "IPV and immigration resources are the first in line for cuts", c) " Fewer staff means a less effective service" and d) "Equality and IPV policies are no longer a government priority". A cross-cutting theme emerged from these categories: immigrant women are triply affected; by IPV, by the crisis, and by structural violence. Conclusion: The professionals interviewed felt that present resources in Spain are insufficient to meet the needs of immigrant women, and that the situation might worsen in the future.

    Health-Sector Responses to Intimate Partner Violence: fitting the Response Into the Biomedical Health System or Adapting the System to Meet the Response?2018In: Journal of Interpersonal Violence, ISSN 0886-2605, E-ISSN 1552-6518, Vol. 33, no 10, p. 1653-1678Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study aims to analyze how middle-level health systems' managers understand the integration of a health care response to intimate partner violence (IPV) within the Spanish health system. Data were obtained through 26 individual interviews with professionals in charge of coordinating the health care response to IPV within the 17 regional health systems in Spain. The transcripts were analyzed following grounded theory in accordance with the constructivist approach described by Charmaz. Three categories emerged, showing the efforts and challenges to integrate a health care response to IPV within the Spanish health system: "IPV is a complex issue that generates activism and/or resistance," "The mandate to integrate a health sector response to IPV: a priority not always prioritized," and "The Spanish health system: respectful with professionals' autonomy and firmly biomedical." The core category, "Developing diverse responses to IPV integration," crosscut the three categories and encompassed the range of different responses that emerge when a strong mandate to integrate a health care response to IPV is enacted. Such responses ranged from refraining to deal with the issue to offering a women-centered response. Attempting to integrate a response to nonbiomedical health problems as IPV into health systems that remain strongly biomedicalized is challenging and strongly dependent both on the motivation of professionals and on organizational factors. Implementing and sustaining changes in the structure and culture of the health care system are needed if a health care response to IPV that fulfills the World Health Organization guidelines is to be ensured.

    "The complaining women": health professionals' perceptions on patients with fibromyalgia in Spain2018In: Disability and Rehabilitation, ISSN 0963-8288, E-ISSN 1464-5165, Vol. 40, no 14, p. 1679-1685Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    PURPOSE: The aim of this study is twofold: (1) to explore health service providers' perceptions regarding fibromyalgia patients in Spain and (2) to analyze possible consequences of these perceptions in terms of how health service providers construct the disease and treat their patients.

    DESIGN: Qualitative study.

    SUBJECTS/PATIENTS: Twelve health service providers (eight men, four women) involved in the care of fibromyalgia patients. Providers were from different disciplines and included general practitioners, rheumatologists, occupational doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists, physiotherapists and behavioral specialists from Spain.

    METHOD: We performed individual semistructured interviews, which were recorded and transcribed to conduct a qualitative content analysis supported by Atlas.ti-7.

    RESULTS: We identified three categories from the interviews: (1) the fibromyalgia patient prototype: the complaining woman, (2) fibromyalgia is considered a women's health issue, but male patients are a privileged minority, and (3) health professionals' attitudes toward fibromyalgia patients: are they really suffering or pretending?

    CONCLUSION: The uncertainty surrounding fibromyalgia together with the fact that those affected are primarily women, seem to influence professional practice in terms of lack of recognition of Fibromyalgia as a severe disease. Increased training of all health professionals is essential to improving the support and attention given to patients suffering from fibromyalgia.

    Implications for rehabilitation: Fibromyalgia

    • In order to improve fibromyalgia patients' attention, health providers should learn how to assist patients without prejudices.

    • Training programs for health providers should include sensitization about the severity of fibromyalgia.

    • Health providers should be aware of the existence of stereotypes about women suffering from fibromyalgia.

    • Fibromyalgia protocols should give skills to health providers to avoid offering a gender-biased attention to patients.

    In the name of the nation: Analyzing gender (in)equality (represented) in the SwedishArmed Forces2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    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.

    Commentary: Challenging Representations of Autism: ExploringPossibilities for Broadcasting the Self on YouTube2013In: Journal of Developmental Disabilities, ISSN 1188-9136, Vol. 19, no 1, p. 90-95Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    YouTube offers potential for many to broadcast their own ideas and concepts to a broad international audience. The take up of YouTube by people with autism as a space for advocacy and awareness raising is discussed in this paper, and the benefits of the environment for enabling people with autism to portray autism in positive and enabling ways are considered. The distinction between knowledge of autism produced within a scientific, medicalised deficit framework as opposed to an experiential knowledge of those with autism themselves is as evident in online spaces such as YouTube as it is in face to face environments, and the wider potential impacts of online spaces on face to face environments will be considered.

    Abstract [en]

    Is what is taken for critique today genuinely self-questioning or merely the confirmation of the moral consensus? In the neoliberal culture of the audit, has critique been deprived of its role as check on ideology? And does preference for impact-oriented research produce political compliance rather than independent critical thought?

    Nyttan med "onyttan": eller: Vad jag har lärt mig om folkbildning av Sara Lidman2015In: Perspektiv på folkbildning: Fyra forskares tankar om folkligt bildningsarbete / [ed] Kerstin Rydbeck, Henrik Nordvall, Linköping: Linköping University Electronic Press, 2015, p. 55-70Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Vad menas med folkbildning? Den korta men mångbottnade frågan utgör stommen i denna bok. Folkbildningsverksamheter, i form av studiecirklar och folkhögskolekurser, samlar årligen stora delar av Sveriges befolkning. Eftersom folkbildningen anses ha stor betydelse för demokratin i landet ges den ett betydande statsbidrag. Men folkbildning förstås ofta också som något mer än en beteckning på det avgränsade område som staten beviljar anslag. Begreppet kan laddas med en rad  olika innebörder. Det kan dyka upp när någon försöker beskriva ett kunskapsförmedlande TV-program eller en forskare som lyckas göra sig hörd bland allmänheten. Det förekommer när biblioteken och andra kulturinstitutioners samhällsroll kommer på tal.

    I boken presenteras fyra forskares synsätt på folkbildning med syftet att bidra till en diskussion om begreppets innebörder. En rad olika frågor behandlas: Vilka innebörder kan vi spåra hos begreppet så som det används i politik och folkbildningsverksamhet? Hur kan man tänka kring folkbildning som studieobjekt i forskning? Hur kan forskare inom dagens akademiska system, med dess fokus på artikelproduktion för smala prestigefyllda internationella tidskrifter, förhålla sig till folkbildning som ideal? Hur kan vi förstå skönlitteraturens betydelse för folkbildningen?

    Boken vänder sig till forskare, folkbildare, studenter och andra som har ett intresse för folkbildning.

    "Är inte att komma och kräva kärlek en smula mycket begärt?": Om kärleksvägran och småkakor i Kristina Sandbergs Maj-trilogi2016In: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, Vol. 37, no 2, p. 11-32Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Kristina Sandberg’s novels about Maj Berglund and her life as a reluctant housewife in a Swedish small town during the 1930’s to the early 1960’s have received wide critical acclaim. Following a previously unacknowledged feminist literary trace of cookie crumbs, this article discovers a sisterhood of mad women in the kitchen, running throughout the 19th and 20th centuries up till the contemporary revival of the image of the happy housewife in popular culture and fiction. Sandberg’s unique contribution to the genre is the notion of love refusal as a subversive strategy, which in turn is deeply connected with a hidden legacy of housewives novels from the 1950’s. These were experimental in form and aggressively outspoken in their emotional modus. Due to their emotional intensity and domestic setting against the backdrop of the Swedish welfare state, these novels may tentatively be labelled “dollhousedesperado stories”, including Ibsen’s Nora in their ancestry. Taken together, these housewife/madwomen narratives play a crucial rolein the forming of, with Sara Ahmed’s term, the “Unhappy Archives”of feminist theory.

    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.

    Gender inequalities in local policies tackling the right to adequate housing: The example of Barcelona through Carol Bacchi’s ‘What’s the Problem Represented to be?’ approach2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The right to adequate housing is an unaccomplished human right, and unequal power relations between men and women are also perpetuated when trying to access decent housing even in the most prosperous global cities such as Barcelona. The aim of this research study has been to show how housing is represented and produced by the Barcelona City Council and which are the gendering effects and implications thereof. Through the analysis of the three most relevant political instruments in the field of housing, the “What’s the Problem Represented to be?” method proposed by Carol Bacchi (1999) has allowed to ascertain different problem representations of the same phenomena within the Council, such as “lack of adequate housing” and “vulnerable women”, with important consequences, along with other policy gaps. In our opinion, while feminism is often produced as the engine for change, these inconsistencies prevent women liberating completely from their socially imposed roles and achieving real and effective gender equality.
