Tillitens stratifiering: En sociologisk studie om kapitalsammansättningens betydelse för unga vuxnas tillit till och krav på myndigheter

Abstract [en]

This study aims to examine which mechanisms affect young adults' trust in authorities, with a focus on capital composition, and specifically cultural capital (education). Through this focus on capital, the study examines the underlying factors that affect what requirements that young adults feel that they can demand of/put on authorities. The data material has been collected through six interviews with young adults aged 20–30 who are, or during the past year have been, registered at the Public Employment Service (Arbetsförmedlingen) in Stockholm, Sweden. The reference framework that formed the basis for the analysis consists of Pierre Bourdieu's capital theory and the concept of habitus, in addition to Max Weber's theories on status and accumulation of opportunities.

The results of the study shows that capital composition correlates with trust level, but that the level of trust also relates to which extent an authority meets the expectations that exist around their services. Moreover, the results show that the level of trust correlates with the level of risk the young adult must take to trust authority. 

Abstract [sv]

Denna uppsats är en kvalitativ intervjustudie som syftar till att undersöka vilka faktorer som påverkar unga vuxnas tillitsnivå till myndigheter, med inriktning på kapitalsammansättning och framförallt kulturellt kapital (utbildning). Dessutom undersöker studien vilka bakomliggande faktorer som påverkar vilka krav unga vuxna upplever att de kan ställa på myndigheter, även detta med fokus på olika typer av kapital. Datamaterialet har samlats in genom sex intervjuer med unga vuxna i åldern 20–30 år som är, eller under det senaste året varit, inskrivna på Arbetsförmedlingen i Stockholms stad. Den referensram som legat till grund för analysarbetet har bestått av Pierre Bourdieus kapitalteori och begreppet habitus samt av Max Webers teorier kring status och möjlighetsansamling.

Resultaten av studien visar att kapitalsammansättning korrelerar med tillitsnivå, men att nivån av tillit också har att göra med i vilken utsträckning myndigheter uppfyller de förväntningar som existerar kring deras tjänster. Dessutom visar resultatet att nivån av tillit korrelerar med hur stor risk det innebär för individen att hysa tillit till myndigheten.
