Audit Culture As A Narrative In Swedish Political Debate: Cultural Semiotic Analysis… Of The ‘Final Debate’ On Health Care In 2018 Swedish General Elections

Abstract [en]

This article shows, through a detailed study of the “Final Debate” of the Swedish 2018 General Elections, the ways in which the current political narratives on health care systems employ the logic of audit culture. Drawing on Yuri Lotman’s cultural semiotics, we show how decontextualised and quantified knowledge, as espoused by audit culture, is present in televised political debates and how necessary it becomes for the emergence and gist of political narratives. One of the consequences of such dependence on the audit culture, we argue, is imposing severe limits to political representation that does not play along its rules.
