    ”Man måste bli allt – man måste vara mamma, pappa, syskon, man”: En fenomenologisk studie om familjeåterförening för ensamkommande barn i Sverige2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to explore how unaccompanied minors describe their experiences of family reunification, and what importance or implications it has for them. Furthermore, our aim was to find out how they experience the withdrawal of public social support after the arrival of their families. We interviewed three persons who were unaccompanied minors by the arrival to Sweden, and later reunified with their families in Sweden. The theoretical framework of this qualitative interview study is formed by Schütz’ phenomenological sociology and Berger and Luckmann’s theory of the social construction of reality. We complemented the theoretical framework with Boss’ theory of ambiguous loss and Greif’s theory of ambiguous reunification. The method for analysis used is Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA). The main results shown in this study is that there seems to be an ambiguity in the family reunification experience. On one hand, the family reunification was of big importance to the participants. On the other hand, the time following the reunification was characterized by a great responsibility for the family. Finally, we discuss possible shortcomings in the way the public social support for families after family reunification is provided.

    Hovrättens och tingsrättens bedömning av hedersrelaterat våld och annat våld: - En kvalitativ analys av rättsfall rörande våldsbrott2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the study has been to describe and analyse in which way court make a distinction between honour related violence and violence in other cases by using an text analysis together with an content analysis. Previous research shows that honour related violence have been a controversial concept, which have made it hard for the swedish society to get a hand of the background of the phenomenon. Some researcher describe honour related violence as a cultural related lifestyle, all though some researchers does not agree with this explanation. The result have been analysed through a feministic perspective on gender, definitions of ascendancy, the normalizations process of violence and through honour and shame. To create an understanding of how the gender norms can take place in different family structures, Al-Baldawis pyramid of patriarchal family structure have been used as an illustration of the differences in authority of power. The main result shows that men's violence against women have been over represented, categorized after violence in close relationships. It also shows that the court´s assessment often is objective, based on the circumstances of the case.

    Ett begrepp med olika betydelser: En studie om begreppet hedersrelaterat våld2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the study is to illustrate partly how the definition of "honor-related violence" is used in the social welfare report and how "honors" are used in current Swedish research and in a central book. The paper examines the consequences for social security officers when "honor-related violence" is defined in a variety of ways while working to prevent the phenomenon. The empirical essay consists of different texts and research that focus on different definitions of "honors concept". Research on the issue of "honorary violence" also analyzes the work of the Social Security Officers. The method is qualitative text analysis, and the coding consists of questions that have been faced with the analysis of the material. Our authors have endeavored to have a factual and research approach in the work of this paper.Central findings in the study are that "honor-related violence" is described from cultural, historical, and intersectional perspectives. Some texts analyzed are based on cultural and historical starting points in the description of violence, and refer primarily to norms and values as a basis in society. Other research criticizes this approach and emphasizes that cultural aspects can lead to discrimination against certain groups. When "honor-related violence" is explained from a cross-sectional perspective, research takes place from different basic constructions into why violence occurs, and addresses class and gender as important prerequisites for describing "honor-related violence". The current Social Security Officer's perception of honor, then a discussion in the paper about the importance of assuming each case is unique and not drawing general conclusions to support the victim in the best possible way.

    Bedömningsstöd för familjehemsplacerade barns umgänge: En utvärdering ur socialarbetares perspektiv2018Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna rapport presenteras resultaten av en utvärdering av ett bedömningsstöd för familjehemsplacerade barns umgänge med föräldrar, syskon, andra anhöriga och närstående. Bedömningsstödet har utvecklats av FoU Södertörn i samarbete med barn- och familjehemssekreterare från nio Södertörnskommuner. Stödet utgår från erfarenhetskunskap hos personal inom familjehemsvården. Erfarenheter från placerade barn har också funnits med som en grund. Utvärderingen har genomförts av FoU Södertörn och Södertörns högskola på uppdrag av Socialstyrelsen. Utvärderingen bygger på en enkätundersökning och på fokusgruppsintervjuer med barn- och familjehemssekreterare som under en avgränsad period har prövat att använda bedömningsstödet i sitt arbete med att göra bedömningar av barnets bästa i umgängesfrågan.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study has been to investigate the support and protection the Swedish government can offer victims of human trafficking for sexual purposes (HTSP). This has been accomplished through a textual analysis of selected governmental documents, which describe support and protection for victims of HTSP. A focal point of this study has been to analyse whether the procedures described in the documents, and also the intentions therein, bears resemblance to the empowerment-theory. This includes whether it adds to a process where the persons are empowered and receives more control over their own lives. The result of the study shows that the texts express intentions of long-term support. We view these intentions as bearing resemblance to the empowerment-theory. Also, the texts show intentions of offering support and protection unconditionally and based upon human rights. The support and protection described in the texts envelop both emergent and long-term support. All victims of HTSP, though, do not have access to the same support and protection since this is based on what sort of visa the person holds. It is demanded to be part of a court-process to receive a short-term visa in Sweden. Because of this, it might be discussed whether support and protection is given first and foremost to meet the needs of victims of HTSP, or with the goal of fighting crime.

    Enterprises in the suburbs and the locality of entrepreneurship2017In: Great regional awakening: new directions / [ed] Lesa Reynolds, 2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Suburbs represent an essential subject for regional studies and have a rapidly increasing economic significance within wider metropolitan regions (Phelps 2010). It is necessary to create inclusive suburbs with a stronger identity. The current growth of populations in major cities requires an ability to reorganize existing cities and a massive restructuring of urban infrastructure (Modarres and Kirby 2010). The interpretation of the needs of suburbs have previously called for a transdisciplinary and collaborative strategy (Després et al. 2004). We look at entrepreneurship and different types of 21 businesses as a source of vitalization of suburbs. These ventures are studied in the context of the diversity of the population of suburb. Entrepreneurial investments, the establishment of high impact enterprises as well as networking among local and migrant businesses represent elements that can vitalize previously marginalized suburbs. Enterprises that are clustered in suburban neighborhoods reflect the different impacts of suburban and city spatial forms. Newly arrived citizens draw upon the critical mass of ethnic members to form a niche market for ethnic business (Fong et al. 2007). Minorities may have limited access to financial capital in the larger urban economy, but ethnic enclaves may provide a source of a unique competitive advantage (Cummings 1999). Entrepreneurship rooted in a suburban surrounding represent a specific opportunity to become embedded in an economic and spatial dimension. The migrant may be seen as representing a diversity capital which penetrate specific market conditions located in ethnically diverse neighborhoods situated in the suburbs of major cities. The spatial and entrepreneurial dimension of ethnic business can thereby be given a relevant context for interpretation.

    "Vi hinner inte med helt enkelt": En studie om bilden av socialsekreterare i svensk dagspress2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to give understanding to the representations of social workers in the daily press in Sweden. The empirical material of this study consists of 120 articles published in the morning newspapers Dagens Nyheter and Svenska Dagbladet in the years of 2015 and 2016. The method used were qualitative analysis of ideas and content analysis and the analytical framework used is based on ideas about social workers that has been identified in previous research. The analysis is based mainly on four ideas of social workers as the media describes the profession.

    From the results it appears that socials workers are mainly described as victims due to systematic and structural shortages. The descriptions of social workers as helpers and incompetent are often linked to the description of them as victims. The description of social workers as cruel and malicious are fewer than the other categories and are limited to specific areas presented in the news.

    Binge drinking in adolescence: Social stratification and the collectivity of drinking cultures2018In: European Journal of Social Work, ISSN 1369-1457, E-ISSN 1468-2664, Vol. 21, no 1, p. 74-85Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Research investigating what shapes young people’s drinking habits is of great importance. This study aimed to analyse the relation between close social networks and adolescents’ drinking habits and the extent to which close social networks may explain differences in binge drinking among social groups. Data from the ‘Stockholm Survey 2012’ were analysed. The Stockholm Survey was a census survey administered to students in academic years 9 and 11, with a response rate of 76%. Ordered logit models were used to estimate relations between the frequency of binge drinking and the independent variables. Parental educational level is associated with adolescent binge drinking, as students with more highly educated parents are more frequent binge drinkers. Parents’ willingness to offer their teenagers alcohol and peers’ drinking habits are also associated with adolescent binge drinking, with a more permissive parental attitude and a prevalence of drinking among peers increasing the risk. Both parents’ willingness to provide alcohol and peers’ drinking habits may statistically explain a large portion of the observed differences in adolescent drinking by parental education. Close social networks are an important factor influencing adolescent binge drinking, and they may explain a large portion of the differences between social groups.

    "Absolut det svåraste jobb jag någonsin haft": En kvalitativ studie om behandlares upplevelser av mötet med män som utövar våld i nära relationer2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Huvudsyftet med denna studie är att lyfta fram behandlares erfarenheter av mötet med män som utövar våld i nära relationer. I synnerhet fokuserar vi på att förstå de viktigaste teman från dessa möten och vilken betydelse de har för behandlingsarbetet. Tillvägagångssättet i studien har varit inspirerat av grounded theory, att generera en förklaring från studiedeltagarnas synpunkter och erfarenheter (Creswell 2013). Studien bygger på sex intervjuer som resulterat i möjligheter, hinder, strategier och lärdomar från möten med våldsutövande män. Resultatet visar att det finns sju teman som beskriver behandlares erfarenheter: empati, compassion fatigue, allians, kön och genus, maskulinitet, skam och makt. Dessa teman kan vara hinder och/eller möjligheter i mötet med män som utövar våld i nära relationer. Resultatet visar även att behandlarna i studien har olika strategier i mötet för att förhålla sig till vardera tema. Lärdomar kan dras utifrån studiens teman. Till exempel, olikt tidigare forskning visar denna studie på att det är många påverkansfaktorer i mötet med våldsutövande män. Vi hoppas med denna studie kunna bidra till utvecklingen av detta behandlingsarbetet.

    Drug control policies in Russia: unhealthy, deviant, and criminal2016In: Baltic Worlds, ISSN 2000-2955, Vol. IX, no 4, p. 12-22Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the policies on drug control and regulation in Russia. We demonstrate that, although agencies involved in drug con-trol and regulation are important for the reproduction of differentiated practices of drug use, they formulate a rather homogeneous image of a drug user as an unhealthy deviant and criminal, and an unequivocal threat to society. At the same time, in the process of policy realization, the most vulnerable groups of users become the main target of public intervention. As a result, stigmatization and violence against these groups becomes institutionalized and legitimized. Moreover, drug control and regulation resonate with a broader range of public policies and spill over into parts of society not associated with illicit drug use.

    Föreställningar om våldsutsatta män i samkönade relationer; exempel från stödgivande samhällsinstanser.2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Statistics show that very few men exposed to domestic violence, either in heterosexual or same-sex relationships, contact any social service. Although domestic violence is often restricted to being defined the same as heterosexual relationships as same-sex relationships, knowledge about violence in same-sex relationships is inadequate. The purpose of this study was to examine if any perception and understanding of violence in same-sex relationships exist within supporting community instances, focusing on male victims of domestic violence. The study containing eight qualitative interviews with respondents within supporting community instances. The result is presented under the themes “stödgivande samhällsinstansers bemötande”, “heteronormativa föreställningar kring våldsutsatta män”, “möjlighet till stöd och skydd” and “outing och skam”. To notice is that the result showed that perceptions about heteronormativity can affect which type of support and protection male victims of domestic violence is given. Lastly, a discussion about the developed result around the inadequate knowledge about violence in same-sex relationships will be held. The conclusions of the study were that there is a heteronormative approach within some of the supporting community instances we interviewed. There are also suggestions for future research and therefore needs to be studied at length.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to illustrate male and females own experiences of codependency. In this study has an qualitative approach been used and the material consists of eight pre-recorded conversations, podcast episodes, published on the Internet. The empirical material has been analyzed from a theory of family roles and a gender perspective. It showed that the participants in this study has been negatively affected by growing up in an environment characterized of abuse or mental illness and felt that they had embraced one or more roles to manage their life situation. The result also showed that the participants had experienced negative consequences in adult life. The result of this study also showed that developing codependency was equally common among both male and female in this study, though were there differences between how male and females express their codependency. The females experienced a feeling of isolation, became quiet and reclusive and the males experienced that they had a more externalizing behavior. The experience of taking a big responsibility in childhood and adolescence was equally common among the participants of this study and led to that their own needs were ignored. The negative consequences of codependency and their connection to the gender norms of today were also discussed.

    Social capital - a mixed blessing for women? A cross-sectional study of different forms of social relations and self-rated depression in Moscow2016In: BMC Psychology, E-ISSN 2050-7283, Vol. 4, no 1, article id 37Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Depression is a major health problem worldwide, especially among women. The condition has been related to a number of factors, such as alcohol consumption, economic situation and, more recently, to social capital. However, there have been relatively few studies about the social capital-depression relationship in Eastern Europe. This paper aims to fill this gap by examining the association between different forms of social capital and self-rated depression in Moscow. Differences between men and women will also be examined, with a special focus on women.

    METHODS: Data was obtained from the Moscow Health Survey, which was conducted in 2004 with 1190 Muscovites aged 18 years or above. For depression, a single-item self-reported measure was used. Social capital was operationalised through five questions about different forms of social relations. Logistic regression analysis was undertaken to estimate the association between social capital and self-rated depression, separately for men and women.

    RESULTS: More women (48 %) than men (36 %) reported that they had felt depressed during the last year. An association was found between social capital and reported depression only among women. Women who were divorced or widowed or who had little contact with relatives had higher odds of reporting depression than those with more family contact. Women who regularly engaged with people from different age groups outside of their families were also more likely to report depression than those with less regular contact.

    CONCLUSIONS: Social capital can be a mixed blessing for women. Different forms of social relations can lead to different health outcomes, both positive and negative. Although the family is important for women's mental health in Moscow, extra-familial relations across age groups can be mentally distressing. This suggests that even though social capital can be a valuable resource for mental health, some of its forms can be mentally deleterious to maintain, especially for women. More research is needed on both sides to social capital. A special focus should be placed on bridging social relations among women in order to better understand the complex association between social capital and depression in Russia and elsewhere.

    Den destruktiva kvinnan och mannen som riskerar att avlida: En kvalitativ textanalys om hur missbrukande kvinnor och män framställs i rättstillämpningen av LVM2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the essay is to investigate how legal certainty is for abusive women and men. This is done by analyzing how the Administrative Court in Stockholm describes women and men in the appealing court decision regarding the preparation of care according to Care of Abusers Act (LVM). The empirical material consists of 20 judicial decisions from the Administrative Court. In order to reach a deeper understanding of the role of gender norms in the judiciary, the survey has been conducted with a gender perspective based on the purpose of the paper, we have considered questions about how women and men are described and whether there are any gender differences in the appealing court decision. To answer the questions, a text analysis based on a hermeneutic approach has been made, then linking the analyzed text in relation to previous research and the chosen theoretical concepts: social construction, stigma and gender. The general conclusions we have reached are that the gender differences described in the court coincide with the general gender norms in the society by describing the gender in various ways in the law application of LVM. This means that the Administrative Court does not fully consider everyone's resemblance to the law according to the principle of equality and objectivity in Instrument of Government (RF). The conclusions are explained by describing how gender is made in a construction process.

    Integrationsarbete "med" eller "för" medborgarna?: En jämförande textanalys av underlagen till två statliga integrationssatsningar, Storstadssatsningen och Nya långsiktiga reformprogrammet för minskad segregation2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to examine and compare the preparatory work of two government efforts to diminish segregation in Sweden: Storstadssatsningen and Nya långsiktiga reformprogrammet för minskad segregation. We have, by a qualitative textual analysis, examined how these preparatory works represent the citizen, their intention, efforts and goals and how the influence and participation by the citizen is intended to meet the needs of recipients of these efforts. The vulnerable citizen is represented in the same way in both preparatory works. Similarities that can be seen are citizens described with a lack of competencies and defined by the problems of their neighbourhood. There are differences concerning how citizens by ethnicity are described. The goals and achievements, which have been compared in both preparatory works, are focused on work and education as instruments to breach segregation. Participation and the influence by the citizen is given a great deal of space in Storstadssatningen, but hardly no space in Nya långsiktiga reformprogrammet för minskad segregation.     

     

    We can see a much harder climate in the community, with increased segregation, where citizens without power and participation develops alienation and where the gap between groups increase. With a perspective of integration and concepts of empowerment and mobilization, we examine possibilities for an alteration. We examine the representation of this methods in both preparatory works.    

     

    In this study, we can see defects in the government welfare systems, which urges a responsibility, in the social work, to define and work with new methods.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the challenges to the Swedish welfare state after the credit crunch of 2008 focusing on several major challenges: the government’s reaction to the fiscal and economic crisis and its outcomes, the (re)balance of welfare policies addressing risks and opportunities. While the situation is almost excellent from a purely fiscal point of view, the outstanding private debt, unemployment, especially among youth, pressures on the pension, health and education systems are prominent concerns. They have led to the revitalization of the social investment paradigm, strict budgetary policies, increased number of welfare-to-work programmes and focus on using tax reductions as a means of stimulating the labour market. In this context, the main demographic concerns and social integration have come to the fore to an unprecedented extent.

    “Att vara närvarande när jag ska vara närvarande”: En kvalitativ studie om socialarbetares upplevelser och hantering av det emotionella mötet med klient.2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to investigate how different social workers working in the field of social work feel emotionally affected by and in their work with clients as a result of the meeting with the clients. Furthermore how they handle possible impact and maintain a healthy balance between work and privacy based on demands, recovery, and professionalism. The method has been qualitative where nine social workers have been interviewed. The theories used for the analysis of the material were copingtheory, interactionism, KASAM and the concept of stress. The results of the study have shown that in the interaction with the client, social workers tend to be more negatively affected. On the other hand, there is also a clear positive impact that comes from clients' appreciation and gratitude for successful support. Negative impact can be manifested by different stress-symptoms, which causes the participants difficulty in focusing, away from their work. When it comes to the managing of the meetings with clients, our study has shown that experience of different kinds is an important factor in how social workers handle the meeting. Other factors are social support from the boss, colleagues and supervisors, as well as support from friends and family. Meaningful time off work has also been an important factor. The perhaps most important factor that the outcome has shown is the importance of constant self-reflection to raise awareness about individual needs, problems and abilities.

    Networks and labor market entry – a historical perspective2017In: Labor history, ISSN 0023-656X, E-ISSN 1469-9702, Vol. 58, no 1, p. 67-90Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses how recruitment practices have changed over time. Networks and contacts are more important today for labor market entry than was the case in the latter half of the twentieth century. There may be two explanations for this: the short-run explanation and the long-run explanation. The short-run explanation derives from fluctuations in unemployment. When unemployment is high, competition for every vacancy is tougher and networks become more important for the job seeker. This has been the case in Sweden since 1991, when unemployment increased to new levels not experienced since the 1930s. In the long run, there has been a change in recruitment practices due to institutional change. A clear pattern is that the importance of social networks has increased, while the significance of public institutions (i.e. the Public Employment Service) has decreased.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study has been to illustrate how staff working closely with young adults with a diagnosis of Asperger's syndrome experience the group's participation in society. Furthermore, we have investigated what potential opportunities and obstacles that the staff consider that people in this group meet when they participate in society and how the staff view the future of young adults with Asperger's syndrome in relation to participation in society. We have had a qualitative phenomenological approach to our study. Field data consists of six interviews with staff working closely with the group, within the social service and in various LSS functions on behalf of social services. The transcribed interviews have been analyzed using a content analysis. Our results show that young adults with Asperger's syndrome experience insufficient participation in society, which has resulted in exclusion. It also appears that society's 'normal image' creates discrimination and oppression for people with different functional variations to the extent that their strengths are partially overlooked. Our results also show that even though young adults with a diagnosis of Asperger's syndrome are stigmatized there is an ongoing visualization that can have a positive effect on the groups participation in society.

    ”Jag visar hellre att jag blir arg än att jag blir ledsen”: En studie om hur normer om manlighet påverkar unga mäns syn på män med depression2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Research shows that men are less likely to seek help for their mental health issues and that masculine norms that dictate how a man should be lie behind this unwillingness to seek help. The objective of this qualitative study was to research how masculinity norms impact young mens perceptions about men with depression or depressive symptoms. This was accomplished through Connells (1999) theory about hegemonic masculinity and Link and Phelans (2001) conceptualization of stigma. In order to fulfill the purpose of this study three focus group interviews were conducted with young men between the ages of 20 and 35 years. The main results show that the interviewed men described traits such as being handy, strong, disciplined and tough as typically manly and desirable in a man. According to the men the fear of seeking help that exists among men stems in the fear of being perceived as weak and there is an idea of depressed men being lonely and abnormal. The conclusion of this study is that masculine norms, being perceived as non-masculine and the fear of stigmatization are important factors behind how the interviewed men reasoned and talked about men with depression and how they handle it.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to examine how collaboration works and is experienced by health and social care workers in a psychiatric care unit. We have conducted qualitative interviews with eight professionals at a psychiatric care unit for individuals with mental illness, that work on the basis of Södertäljemodellen. The empirical data is analyzed using collaboration as a theoretical concept along with organization theory. The results show that collaboration works through formal and informal meetings and also when the professionals need to consider assessements made by other professionals in their decision making. Furthermore, the results show that the professionals experience that they have gained a better understanding of each other’s work, better cooperation and that assistance faster reaches the patients/clients. However, the study also sheds light on some of the problems experienced by the professionals, for example, that co-location can contribute to an indistinct division of labor and difficulties with the structure of the workday.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to investigate how therapists and volunteers find that men who exposed women to violence in close relationships describe and explain their experiences as violence practitioners and how these men describes violence in relation to their image of masculinity. Furthermore, the purpose is to investigate how respondents are affected by the stories of men. The study is based on five qualitative interviews, where an interview guide is used to structure the data collection. The results are analyzed based on three different themes; men's ways of describing and telling about violence, men's image of masculinity and how respondents were influenced by men's stories. Theories that have been used in this study is theories of mirror self, the normalization process of violence for men and cognitive dissonance. The result of this study suggests that men use narrative strategies to mitigate and explain their violence in close relationships. Respondents experience feelings like powerlessness and frustration in conversations with men who do not want to take responsibility for their actions.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study has been to examine how female and male offenders are represented in the domain of justice substantialised through the Swedish court and legal system. Through interviews with a number of trial lawyers we are aiming for an understanding of these representations related to a gender studies perspective that shows how norms and stereotypes are reproduced and maintained on the basis of sex, gender and expected qualities and capabilities. This study raises questions about objectivity, impartial judgements and in the end justice. We are also trying to illustrate female offenders and how they are perceived in the Swedish court and legal system. Our study is qualitative and to answer our issues we have gone through semi structured interviews with trial lawyers that through their profession has defended both female and male offenders. Our scientific background and theoretical framework is gender and sex studies together with stereotypes and doing stereotypes which is a type of cognitive bias; a subject that we are also presenting. One of the most important results of this study is that there is a difference in how female offenders are represented compared to how male offenders are represented in the Swedish court and law system. Through this result we can see that the statutory objectivity is threatened.

    Abstract [en]

    This study is based on a social constructivist approach and investigates how the interaction between plaintiff and judiciary affects the outcome of rape judgments. The purpose is to consider this interaction based on a gender perspective to investigate how allegations and assumptions about gender affect the plaintiff’s credibility. The empirical material of the study consists of twelve rape judgments, six of which are freeing outcomes and six with convulsions. In order to analyze these judgments, the following concepts and theories have been used: Nils Christie’s (2001) concept of the ideal victim, Simone de Beauvoir’s (2017), Yvonne Hirdman’s (2003) respective Pierre Bourdieu’s (2004) theory of gender, and Pierre Bourdieu’s (2004) theory of symbolic violence. The result clarifies how the plaintiff's behavior before and after the rape forms the basis for how the district court assesses its credibility. Rape myths are noted to visualize the social structures because of norms and values ​​based on gender perspectives.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this essay is to illustrate how the public conversation about the online campaign #metoo was conducted on the social media platform Twitter in the fall of 2017. Using qualitative content analysis as a method, we studied tweets containing #metoo by identifying how support, criticism and other prominent messages were formulated in the online campaign. Our results showed that support and criticism under #metoo were expressed in many different ways. We identified that support was shown to vulnerable women and the campaign itself. We also identified that several individuals supported the fact that certain groups of men has been publicly accused for committing sexual crimes. The criticism of the campaign has partly shown a resistance against feminists and feminism. We have also found criticism against that white men has been accused for sexual crimes, where these writers mean that the actual perpetrators are of different ethnic or cultural backgrounds. Another criticism has also been raised against the campaign where several writers claim that the campaign has received a defected focus. These writers claim that #metoo has become a platform for publicly accusing individuals, instead of concentrating the campaign on sexual violence and harassment as a social problem.

    This study examines how individuals have emerged out of substance abuse and how they stay sober. To achieve this we have done qualitative interviews with sober drug addicts.

The result shows that the individual experience negative consequences of the drug abuse and often reaches a personal rock bottom before he or she choose to terminate.  The process of change partly occurs through a spiritual awakening. To maintain the sobriety our study also shows that the relationship to God and relatives are important. Finding a new purpose in life where you help other people is also significant.

    Det svenska abortmotståndet: en analys av den samtida abortkritiska diskursen i Sverige2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study has been to generate knowledge regarding the contemporary anti-abortion movement in Sweden, by examining the contemporary anti-abortion discourse and it’s construction of abortion as a phenomenon. The empirics has included texts from two anti-abortion organisations: ”Ja till livet” and ”Människorätt för ofödda”. The study has relied on a theoretical base of discourse theory inspired by Foucault, and the empirics have been examined through a discourse analysis. The results shows that the contemporary anti-abortion discourse in Sweden relies on a central element where the feetus is referred to as an unborn child, and therefore constructed as a person with an essential human worth. Furthermore, abortion is presented as an act of murder, as well as irresponsible and morally wrong. The act of carrying the pregnancy to term and then caring for the child is however presented as the ultimate way to take responsibility. In addition to this, a ”pro-woman”-element constitutes the discourse; constructing abortion as harmful to women, and women as victims of both abortion and coercion. Finally, the discourse claims its veracity by referring to science and moral convictions, and by claiming its view of the world as objectively true, the popular discourse on abortion is challenged.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to investigate the freedom of action of the care managers in the handling of trial and training apartments. The study is based on the following questions: What level of freedom does the care managers experience in the assessment of trial and training apartments? How does the care manager create a good environment, taking into consideration the client's involvement and wishes, in the management of trial and training apartments?

    The study is based on individual interviews based on a semi-structured interview guide with six care managers working in the government-run social psychiatry organisation in the city of Stockholm. The results of the study showed that there is no contradiction between the guidelines and the individual assessment that all clients are entitled. In either case, when it comes to the trial and training apartments at the social psychiatry organisation in the city of Stockholm. The study also shows that the client's cognitive ability determines how much the client participates in the investigation. The unused space of action is given to the care manager, which then increases the scope of action.

    Abstract [en]

    The study aimed to investigate the characterization of unaccompanied child refuges in two of Sweden’s leading newspapers by analyzing the rhetoric used in publications. The empirical material was collected from Aftonbladet and Expresses’s databases and was limited to 50 electronically published leaders, debate and news articles for the period of September 2015 up to February 2016. The empirical analysis was based on Norman Fairclough’s interpretation of critical discourse analysis, CDA and the theoretical discourse concept of power, knowledge and stigma. The result of the study showed two recurring themes within the discourse of unaccompanied child refugees titled “victim” and “prisoner”. Description within the themes portrayed the children as exposed, affected and involuntary addicts as well as criminal, violent and threatening. The portrayal of the children effected human perception, attitudes and actions toward the group. Media is described to have an undeniable impact on the creation of human perceptions, believes and attitudes. By doing so, the portrayal of children as perpetrators can have a negative impact on human processes, which however can be altered by nuances given to the subject by the portrayal of the children as victims.

    This chapter discusses the 2013 riots in Stockholm in the perspective of a range of urban rebellions in disadvantaged metropolitan neighbourhoods of the North-Atlantic region over the past three decades of neoliberal transformation. The authors examine consequences of securitisation and police repression, institutional racism, the corrosion of citizenship and the structuring of inequality in Swedish cities and they ask whether the Stockholm uprising could possibly open space for new political voices.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to investigate how kindergarten teachers look at their obligation to report and the possibilities and obstacles they see in reporting a child they think might be a victim of maltreatment. This study has a qualitative approach and six interviews were conducted with the help of both managers of kindergartens and kindergarten teachers. To analyse the empirical data that revealed itself during the interviews we used Johanssons (2007) and Svensson, Johnsson och Laanemets (2008) definition of discretion and the concept of “street level-bureaucrats”. The result showed that our informants experienced the meeting with children who they suspect is being maltreated is important and emotional and they thought that they had a moral responsibility towards these children. It also showed that the relationship the teachers had with the children's parents made a difference in how to act about reporting or not. Its also showed that the workplace itself and the knowledge and experience you have could interfere with reporting. In conclusion we think that more studies should be done in this area and that more knowledge about this should be included in education, which our informants also agreed on.

    Glöm inte samverkan: En kvalitativ studie om samverkan mellan kommun, landsting och intresseorganisationer när det kommer till individer med demens och deras anhöriga2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Huvudsyftet med denna uppsats är att lyfta fram hur professionella inom demensvård upplever samverkan mellan kommun, landsting och intresseorganisationer. Fokus har varit att undersöka de teman som uppdagas när man talar om samverkan och implikationer som detta innebär i det dagliga arbetet. Vidare har syftet varit att undersöka intervjupersonernas upplevda möjlighet till kompetensutveckling inom demens samt deras eget handlingsutrymme.

    Undersökningen bygger på fem intervjuer och utfördes i en större stad i Sverige. Två intervjupersoner representerar landstinget, två intervjupersoner representerar en kommun och slutligen representerar en intervjuperson en intresseorganisation.

    Resultatet visar att intervjupersonerna ser brister i samverkan och att detta bland annat kan bero på förlegade normer samt det faktum att kommun och landsting arbetar inom olika lagrum som begränsar ett tillfredställande samarbete. Vidare pekar resultatet på att individinsatser är det som får samverkan att fungera vilket kan leda till en problematisk situation, både för de professionella samt brukare och deras anhöriga.
