Abstract [en]

This thesis studies the arguments for and against the removal of the word race from the Swedish Discrimination Law. Questions on race creeds in the society, rationalities and use of the word Race and its meaning linger in all spheres and are inescapable. One of the reasons could be the brutality carried in the word race and yet it remains to be part of the international vocabulary. Human beings are protected from Racial violations by International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD) and in it there is use of the word Race. Normative theory is used to analyse the Arguments from debates by antiracists and other materials to find the rationality in or without the word race in law. Do anti-racists halt racification, with or without using the word race in the Swedish law? This is the research question. The results indicate that the anti-racists do not halt racification, with or without using the word race in the Swedish law. This thesis is a call to illegalise racification and have clear description in the law on matters of racism. This thesis purposes to add onto the bank of an anti-racist arguments. It advocates for a halt of racification on human beings as a necessity for resolving racism.
