    Om rätten till sexuell och reproduktiv hälsa för män i Sverige2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    1994 in Cairo United Nations Population and Development Fund held a conference where the attending 179 nations agreed that Sexual and reproductive health is a human right. Everyone is entitled to this right without distinction.

     

    This thesis investigates what covenants, declarations, policies, strategies and national law say about sexual and reproductive rights for men, specifically men in Sweden.

     

    The thesis aims to enlighten the reader about men’s situation in a welfare state where discriminatory structures in society is reproducing gender stereotypes in a country that is one of the most gender equal countries in the world.

     

    The general lack of common knowledge and subsequent lacking education in the matter is abundantly clear when browsing documents issued by official sources throughout the world. While Europe and its countries have begun to examine and call attention to this neglected subject, progress is still slow and could be hazardous to men’s sexual and reproductive health.

    The thesis concludes with an argument that Sweden have a discriminatory structure built in society that discriminate men and their right to sexual and reproductive health according to Discrimination Act 2008:567 by practices that appear to be neutral but can affect men in a negative way.

    Skydd för alla eller friheten att avstå vaccination?: En analys av artikel 12 i konventionen om de ekonomiska, sociala och kulturella rättigheterna i förhållande till rättvisa, moral, skyldigheter och vaccinationstvång2021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study analyzes article 12 of the International Covenant on economic, social and cultural rights. The “right of everyone to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health”.This article is analyzed in the context of herd immunity and mandatory vaccination. The analysis has been conducted through critical discourse analysis and analyzed through the terms of fairness, morality and obligations in former research at issue.The aim of this paper is to shed light on the flaws of article 12 which fails in its purpose to protect every human being, especially the most vulnerable. This may happen when individuals are allowed to act according to their own personal interests in ways that can negatively affect the public health especially for those who cannot be vaccinated.It is established by law that no one can be forced to get vaccinated. This paper analyzes if there are other incentives to motivate people to get vaccinated to protect others.Through a fairness perspective, it is argued that the individual should get vaccinated to protect others. This can help to protect those individuals who cannot get vaccinated. Those who have the capacity have a duty to do more. The effort of getting vaccinated is minimal and the resulting herd immunity means that even those who are not vaccinated are protected from infection. There are several studies that proves that individuals are more inclined to contribute to the common good if it is done with fairness and equality.Morality as a concept lacks a common or universal definition. Therefore, morality cannot be used as a reason or a motive.The “right of everyone to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health” is protected by article 12. This paper argues that those who cannot get immunized through vaccination are not included in this protection. The same article also protects the individual’s right to make their own decision regarding their immunity. The decision of abstaining vaccination when otherwise able to get immunized can mean life or death for those that do not have the option to get vaccinated. The consequence of individual decision-making becomes unclear. The state, as the party responsible to uphold the covenant, cannot protect the most vulnerable since the right to bodily integrity weighs heavier than the common good. When more people choose not to get vaccinated the most vulnerable are less protected from disease and infection. The unprotected cannot claim accountability from the state. The outdated covenant protects only some of the people, not all of them as it is supposed to do. Especially the most vulnerable.

    Modern Meaning-making: Adolescent understanding of existential aspects in Health-related quality of life [HRQL]2017In: IAPR Conference in Hamar 2017: Culture, Context and Existential Challenges, 2017, p. 30-30Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Aims: Present results from focus interviews concerning existential aspects related to the adaptation of the WHOQOL-SRPB(BREF) for Swedish adolescents.

    Background: Exploring existential aspects of HRQL are important when mental ill-health is increasing among adolescents in a secular context. WHO introduced WHOQOL-SRPB in 2002 for measuring HRQL, including Spiritual, Religious and Personal beliefs [SRPB]. It is validated for Swedish adults. Now it requires adaptation for youth, even internationally.

    Methods: Pupils (age 15–19) in four groups were interviewed following WHO instructions for cognitive interviewing. Content analysis of the transcribed interviews was conducted.

    Results: The pupils considered existential aspects important for HRQL. The items: Meaning, Awe, Wholeness, Peace and Hope were comprehensible for them. Faith and Personal beliefs were related to e.g. insecurity, individualism:”To believe in yourself” and traditional aspects:”I personally believe in Jesus but I do not believe in God”. Spiritual Strength and Spiritual Connection did not require transcendence and could relate to various ideas e.g. nature or popular culture:”The first thing that pops up is the Lion King that talks to Simba in the clouds. It is his inner spirituality”.

    Conclusion: Results show the importance of adaptation of existential aspects in HRQL to the cultural (secularized) context.
