    Responsibility to Protect: En studie om hur R2P och problematiken med implementeringen av den principen2021Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 180 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study is about the principle “Responsibility to Protect” and its implementation in several countries. The purpose of this study is to examine why the implementation of “Responsibility to Protect” has been used differently in similar situations. To limit my study I have chosen to examine two countries that have two different results on similar issues. I have chosen to study the conflict/civil war in Libya and Syria. The reason why I have chosen these countries is because these conflicts have similar causes and similar history, but how the international community responded differently and has argued various. This study will also highlight and observe the difficulties that the principle faces. For example the veto right in the united nation security council, and also the principle of sovereignty. At the end of this study I discuss the principle in general, what I think about it and how the principle “Responsibility to Protect” can be improved itself and develop to be more powerful and fulfill its purpose, to Protect civilians from genocide, crime against humanity and towards war crime.

    ”I am Mokgadi Caster Semenya. I am a woman and I am fast.”: En filosofisk analys om rättvisa inom elitidrotten i förhållande till IAAF:s regelverk gällande kvinnor med könsavvikelser2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis has emphasised on justice within the regulation constructed by The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) concerning the eligibility for the female classification (athletes with Difference of Sex Development). Different arguments in IAAF:s regulation has been examined throughout a philosophical analysis to examine the validity of the regulation. The IAAF:s regulation validity is examined through the capabilities approach, which aims to promote individual justice of an individual and what the individual can become to her fullest. The other theory of justice originates from utilitarianism which is a type of justice that aims to bring the most fortune to the greatest amount of people. IAAF:s regulation is a governing tool which controls participation of female athletes in the elite level sport in races at international competitions. The women who get affected by its implementation are women who suffer from DSD (Disorder of Sex Development). The regulation requests that women with DSD, who develop higher amount of testosterone than the average woman, must undergo medication to participate in international competitions in different races. The effect of the medication results in the deterioration of their natural physiological health. IAAF considers it necessary since some women with DSD has an advantage in comparison to the average female athletes in the same race events. Throughout the capabilities approach this may seem as an unjust type of regulation for women with DSD. The theory of utilitarianism may see it as justice for the majority of female athletes. When applying these two types of justice, the capabilities approach and utilitarianism, the result will differ. The sports organisation IAAF has also been compared to other sports organisations. The comparison lies within what sport aims to be for the athlete. Before beginning with the analysis, the history of different control mechanism of the female athletes’ bodies will be presented to show the reader the complexity that lies in the female category of elite sports level.

    Putting a tired dichotomy to rest: Steven Pinker and the problem of nature and nurture2024In: Steven Pinker: Critical Reponses / [ed] Ray Scott Percival, Berkeley: Open Universe , 2024Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    From great classics of literature to Psychology 101 the question of nature or nurture seems to haunt us. It is quite a surprise then to read that Steven Pinker sees it as ‘a tired dichotomy’ that one better ‘think around’.[1] It soon becomes evident though, that he spends much time and though on the question rather than ignoring it. Not unlike Raskolnikov, the question leaves Pinker no rest. He even devotes 500 pages to it in The Blank Slate.[2] It was not so simple to ‘think around’ the question of nature versus nurture after all. It can even be argued that the dichotomy between nature and nurture, heredity and environment, is of central importance if we are to critically evaluate Pinker’s thinking about the human being at all.

    The relationship between the social on the one hand and the biological on the other is a lynchpin into Pinker’s anthropology. Or if we are to borrow Pinker’s image about verbs,[3] nature versus nurture is a rabbit hole, small and insignificant, but once you enter it, a whole world is opened up. The question of nature/nurture reveals some critical points about Pinker’s view of the human being at large. But in order to reveal those greater questions we need to begin with the question of how Pinker understands the relationship between nature and nurture. [1] Steven Pinker, The Language Instinct: The New Science of Language and Mind (London: Penguin, 1995), 277.[2] Steven Pinker, The Blank Slate: The Modern Denial of Human Nature (New York: Penguin, 2003).[3] Steven Pinker, The Stuff of Thought: Language as a Window into Human Nature (London: Penguin, 2008), 25.
