    Hederskultur2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Våld mot kvinnor är en kränkning av de universella mänskliga rättigheterna som baseras på alla människors lika värde och rättigheter. Flera internationella konventioner har antagits som ger staten skyldighet att skydda kvinnor, oavsett om våldet mot kvinnor sker i den privata eller offentliga sfären. 

    Det hedersrelaterade systemet är ett komplext system som är väldigt strukturellt och organiserat. Denna karaktär innehåller olika former av förtryck och anses inte som enskilda och isolerade händelser utan dessa bör ses i tidsföljd och ingår i ett större organiserat sammanhang. De komponenter som förekommer i en hederskontext är: tradition, kultur, religion, könsmaktsordning, utanförskap, individuella/ psykologiska komponenter[1].

    Här i Sverige finns unga personer som lever med tanken att de aldrig får dra skam över familjens heder vilket leder till ett ständigt hot i deras vardag. När man pratar ”hdrv” så är det inte enbart en man som misshandlar en kvinna utan oftast planeras detta av hela familjen som utövas både av släktingar utanför (män och kvinnor) eller enbart av den närmaste familjen[2].

    Syftet med denna studie är att jag ska försöka ta reda på så mycket information och fakta för att kunna förstå olika diskurser kring hedersförtryck, hedersvåld och förhoppningsvis kunna nyansera hederskultur i relation till kultur, normer och religion.

    Rätten till asyl: Den EU-rättsliga aspekten på området i samhörighet med dess internationella påverkan2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay aim to concern the regulations regarding asylum, foremost in the European Union and partly in an international context. After having a course about human rights in a European perspective I decided that I wanted to know more about the right to asylum, and therefore the regulations regarding asylum in a European judicial context as well as in an international approach. The three main question formulations are: 1. How are the overall EU legal frameworks as regards asylum law constructed? 2. What does the international principle of Non-Refoulement (not sending back refugees who risks being subject to inhuman punishment) implicate, which is sometimes referred to within asylum law at a EU level? 3. What is the situation as things stand in the field of asylum and migration? The purpose is to carry out an investigation of the right to asylum, as it is applicable in the judicial field. Furthermore, the aim is to carry out a comprehensive investigation of right regarding asylum order to further limiting the investigation somewhat with relevant regulations as well as legal principles in the area. Forward the purpose is to, partially study how the major regulations in the area of asylum law are able to be subject for comparison, but also to see how they can correlate. The aim is therefore to highlight these general, but crucial regulations that exists within the field of asylum mainly at a EU level and a little lesser internationally, in order to carry out an analytical comparison between them. The method for the essay entails an interpretation of the regulations by means of grounds of legal dogma and thereinafter with a comparative method. The result of the essay reveals that the European regulations regarding asylum is immensely inclusive containing a broad spectrum with everything from the right to asylum, criterias and mechanisms for administration of asylum applications, the best interest of the child to the rights which are destined to accrue to those who seeks asylum. The result also demonstrates that the international regulations as well as the European regulations provides for the rights which are destined to accrue to those who seeks asylum. The result also demonstrates that the international principle of Non Refoulement fully aim to protect those in need of protection of their lives or freedom to return to areas where this can be adventured. Likewise the result demonstrates that the regulations in these area both can be compared as well as they can be placed in relation to each other because of their correlation. The analysis of the essay, as well as its conclusion directs that the regulations are able to be put in a tighter context than it at first seems like. Additionally the essay detects that the European regulations, particularly those in stages of revise would be very helped by more influence from the international regulations, for example The Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees.

    Halt Racification: A qualitative study on anti-racists halt of racification apropos the Swedish Discrimination law(2008:567).2018Independent thesis Basic level (Higher Education Diploma (Fine Arts)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    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.

    ”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.

    Mäns våld mot kvinnor i nära relationer: Våldets karaktär, omfattning och Sveriges ansvar för att skydda kvinnors mänskliga rättigheter2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Men’s violence against women in intimate partner relationships is a comprehensive problem in society both in Sweden and in the world. Most of the violence occurs at home which makes it a well-hidden problem and the lack of knowledge about men´s violence against women in intimate partner relationships makes it difficult to tackle. The purpose of this essay was to study the character of the violence, how comprehensive the violence is and the actions that Sweden has taken to end men´s violence against women in intimate partner relationships. The result shows that violence in intimate partner relationships occurs in all ages, ethnicities and social classes. The violence can be psychological, physical, sexual, material or economic and the abuser successively takes control over the women and her life. Prejudice about who the abuser is are common and if the abuser doesn’t fit in to the stereotype we seem to look for explanations in the implication of alcohol, anger issues or cultural background. We also seem to mistrust the women and rather than focusing on the crime that has been committed against her we focus on questions such as; why didn’t she leave sooner? To fight this social problem the government has developed a national strategy. This strategy points out that the inequality between women and men is the biggest reason that the violence occurs. According to the strategy education within all levels of society is the key to change the image of femininity and masculinity that feeds inequality between women and men.

    Förvaret: En kvalitativ intervjustudie med handläggare på Migrationsverket2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    There are five detention centers in Sweden (in swedish ”förvaret”), were asylum seekers and migrants are held in custody until the Migration Agency has completed their investigation and concluded who are allowed to remain in Sweden and who should return/sent back to their home countries. The detainees are taken into detention centers because the state and authorities are afraid that they will ”go under ground”. This study has been based on the primary empirical data provided by semi-structured interviews. These have then been analysed with a narrative methodology, and in interaction with relevant literature as secondary data. Seven staff members at the detention center in Flen have been interviewed. Erving Goffman´s theory about ”total institutions” and Michael Foucault´s theory about power and its exercise have been used as theoretical basis for the analysis. The purpose of this study is to investigate how the staff members in the detention center in Flen works, how the staff experience their duties and what opportunities there are available for the detainees. The following questions should be answered: (1) How does the staff work in the detention center and how does the interaction between the detainees and the staff look like? (2) How the detention center affects detainees health and what kind of care is available for detainees? (3) What do the staff consider of the criticisms against the detention centers? In summary, the empirical base shows that (1) the staff at the detention center (in Flen) have two different roles, first to help detainees who feel bad or are sick and also to persuade the detainees to cooperate and leave the country voluntarily. The interviewers stated that some of the detainees do not want any contact with the staff, while others are more open to it. (2) The main aim of the staff is to treat the detainees within the walls of the detention center, however, when the resources are insufficient. When more serious problems arise the detainees are offered care outside the detention center. (3) The interviewed staff members held the opinion that the criticism of the detention centers is wrong and unfair. Their conviction was that the lawmakers have decided that these detention centeras are needed and that they trust their decisions, detention centers are part of the asylum process, that the staff only trying fulfill their duties, detention centers are the result of the policy that people voted for in general elections.

    Upprop mot utrop: En studie av interpellationsdebatt 2017/18:4342018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper was to examine and analyze Jomshof's argument in "Interpellationdebate 2017/18: 434 prayer call", where he proposed that freedom of religion be restricted byadopting a Swedish ban on Islamic prayer calls. In this work, a normative qualitative textanalysis has been used to investigate why Jomshof gives this proposal and how he does it. Ihave investigated this by examining the debate itself, but also by placing Jomshof's views intoa broader context of society and party ideology. Results from my analysis show that the centralviews the debater bases his proposal on is that the legal situation allows the realization of theproposal, that Swedish democracy is threatened, and that Swedish secularization must bepreserved. My analysis results also show that Jomshof's discourse is xenophobic and has racistundertones and that Jomshof wants to create an image of the existence of hierarchies amongpeople. What my analysys also showed was that negative consequences on individual andcommunity levels could occur if Jomshof's proposal was made law. Even if his opinionsexpress, and the way how he expresses them, could have negative consequences.

    Integration av nyanlända kvinnor: En diskursanalys av arbetspolitiska åtgärder ur ett feministiskt perspektiv2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The word integration is a well-known word and often used in today's media and politics. The question is if integration is ever spoken in terms of integrations for men and integration for women instead of integration generally. What we can see from several studies is the newly arrived women's exclusion from the integration to the Swedish society, especially on the labor market. This problem is rarely discussed throughout politicians and how they can remove this exclusion from the society, and what kind of efforts that needs to be made on a national level to create a more accepting society. This essay is created to highlight the problems and difficulties that may arise while integrating into the Swedish society and labor market as an immigating woman. This was studied through three different Swedish national documents: “2017 Budgetpropositionen om etableringsinsatser” and two action plans from the Swedish labor authority called “Arbetsförmedlingen”. With the help of the questions, the material was investigated in which efforts are being made in the labor market for newly arrived women seen from a feminist perspective in the documents. The material was read and analyzed based on a discourse analysis using a content analysis. The essay is based on a feminist theory, that is embedded in two feminist perspectives which are: the theory of gender roles and the intersectional perspective. The results of the study show a clear lack of the intersectional perspective, where new arrivals are seen as a homogeneous group. The documents do not express themselves based on the correct terms and the structural problems are not addressed sufficiently, which creates problems for the newly arrived woman to be integrated into the labor market. Therefore, there is a need in national documents to focus more to the needs of the individual, and see it from several grounds and not just see it from a gender perspective. This creates more individualized efforts, but we are not there yet.

    "Korruption i Demokratiska Republiken Kongo": En kvalitativ studie om konsekvenserna av Korruption i Kongo2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The main purpose of this study is to investigate how the corruption in the capital city (Kinshasa) of Democratic Republic of Congo (hereafter Congo) affects the inhabitants of the country, how common corruption is in Congo and how the people living in the country suffer from corruption. The secondary purpose of the paper was to investigate the consequences of corruption for those living in the country.The argumentation is analyzed by a semi-qualitative method using a questionnaire with quantitative and qualitative (open) questions answered by residents in the capital city of Congo. Kinshasa is a city characterized by great contrasts. In the city of Kinshasa there are areas with luxury residential neighborhoods, business areas and several universities, but also large and rapidly growing areas where poor people live. Residents from these two different areas of Kinshasa have been asked.The primary data analysis showed that the participants living in the poorer areas, to a greater extent than those living in the prosperous areas, find it common for corruption in Kinshasa to occur. They also argue that society is overcoming the problems of corruption in Kinshasa and that they suffer from corruption in Kinshasa to a greater extent than those living in the prosperous areas. The results of the survey also show that participants from both groups experience that corruption in common in the everyday life and that society oversees with the problems of corruption in Kinshasa. They find that corruption is something that belongs to everyday life, both in the working life and in the everyday life.. They also believe that they are having difficulties in getting their fundamental rights satisfied due to corruption.The conclusions that can be drawn from the survey are that the results are consistent with the situation in Congo described today. The people of Congo are still very vulnerable to the country's situation and widespread corruption. There is no well-functioning system, and those who have a higher position in society use daily corrupt methods to govern society. Civil society in the country is very weak and needs support, especially with regard to civil and human rights. The underlying causes of human rights violations are the country's widespread corruption

    Europeiska system i konflikt: Oförenligheter och konsekvenser för de mänskliga rättigheterna2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    There are some shortcomings in the common, European understanding of human rights. The EU, with its Charter of Fundamental Rights and the Council of Europe with the European Convention, has in some cases clear incompatibilities when it comes to the interpretation of rights. This in turn, will have a negative impact on states that are affiliated to both systems, but also for those individuals who are experiencing that their rights have been violated. This study aims at analyzing where the conflict lies by using a jurisprudence approach, using a comparative analysis method. The study will also look into the possible solution that could be the EU's accession to the European Convention, thus creating a greater consensus on rights issues.

    Abstract [en]

    Despite internal regulations, policy documents, statements, training, reporting mechanisms

    and international treaties accountability is perceived as inadequate when it comes to

    peacekeepers and sexual exploitation and abuse. This study will be based on a normative

    oriented jurisprudence and will use general international principles for reviewing the flaws.

    There are relatively robust regulations on how peacekeepers are expected to meet their

    standards of conduct but there simultaneously exists a legal vacuum when it comes to

    accountability. This study will to try to create an overlap in hope to further implement

    existing policy document.

    Abstract [en]

    This thesis examines national name changes in terms of democratic and participatory rights. The research is divided into two sections; one compiles the information on several historic and contemporary name changes and analyses the common traits, the other investigates the eSwatini name change through case study interviews. The thesis is theory building on national name changes and settles on a conclusion on name changes being reasoned by either pragmatic sentiments or in terms of collective identity and that the processes of such name changes can be either democratic, organic, or undemocratic.

    Genuskonstruktion i rättsfall?: En kritisk granskning av svenska rättsfall gällande våldtäkt mot barn2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this thesis the objective has been to identify differences in judgements between female and male offenders in legal cases about rape against children in Swedish courts.

    Female offenders are often seen as victims or mentally ill by judicial courts/institutions. By analyzing the cases from a theoretic perspective that gender is constructed by victimization the thesis will investigate how the offenders motivate their act. The thesis has investigated cases from 3 angles; the relationship with the child, the sexual act and their explanations to the committed crime/acts. There are some indications that construction of sex is identifiable.

    The relationship with the plaintiff in the cases is assumed from the feelings the child has towards the male offender, and when the offender is a woman it is assumed from her feelings and not the relationship with the child. Judgements with male offenders is more detailed with the sexual act and therefore also much more explained in the documents from the court. The female offender is often described as a vulnerable, manipulated or victimized and therefore given reason for not taking responsibilities for their acts. This is often used by the lawyer who represents the female offender.

    Den tillfälliga lagens påverkan på barnets rätt till psykisk hälsa: med fokus på asylsökande ensamkommande barn2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines how the new temporary law (SFS 2016:752) guarantees the child’s right to mental health; focusing on the asylum-seeking unaccompanied minor. This subject is examined since the Swedish law that regulates migration got reduced to the minimum standards that can be found in the EU and in international conventions when Sweden received 163 000 asylum seekers during 2015. 35 400 of them were unaccompanied minors. This leads to the question if the new regulations jeopardize the child’s right to mental health. To answer that, this study’s theoretical ground that will be used is legal positivism. By practicing a legal-judicial method and law-based sociological method the study follows three questions; 1. What is Sweden bound to guarantee according to the Convention on the Right’s of the child, associated with the mental health of children and the provisions of the temporary law? 2. Does the temporary law constitute grounds for existential uncertainty, and is it thereby violating the child’s right to mental health? 3. What does the situation look like, related to the mental health of asylum-seeking unaccompanied minors? In relation to the Convention on the Right’s of the Child this temporary law, and the impact of it, is examined. In the discussion it is clear that not only article 24 (the child’s right to health) is fundamental to the question of mental health, but several other articles. The result of this study has shown that the temporary law clearly violates the asylum-seeking unaccompanied child’s right to mental health.

    National Security, Gendered Insecurity: Feminist Perspectives on Militarism, Masculinities & Security2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna uppsats granskas militariserad säkerhet i relation till kvinnors osäkerhet. Uppsatsen genomsyras av ett genusperspektiv och berör skadliga sociala normer såsom våldsuttryck knutna till maskulinitetsideal, nationens betydelse, maskuliniseringen av den säkerhetspolitiska arenan och hur den Amerikanska armén använde sig av feminisering som förhörsmetod i det skandalomsusade Irakiska fängelset Abu Ghraib. Uppsatsen finner att militariserad säkerhet utgör ett hot mot kvinnors säkerhet i och med den könsmaktsordning som upprätthålls och förstärks i samband med konflikt och militär närvaro och som resulterar i specifikt våld riktat mot kvinnor och feminiserade grupper.

    Bostadssituationen för polska migrantarbetare  i Sverige2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is about Polish migrant workers’ housing situation in Sweden. The primary purpose is to show how the housing situation looks like for Polish migrant workers who live in Sweden. The second purpose is to highlight how complex the right to housing is and show how this right influence their living standard. The conclusion is based on a content analysis of surveys which were completed by 427 Polish migrant workers. Some information was a result of a content analysis of reports and statistics from different governmental authorities and housing ads from the website poloniainfo.se. The result shows that the majority, 81 percent, either own a flat or have a lease/rental contract of their accommodation. However, what is considered being alarming is that at least 18 percent of respondents are homeless according to The National Board of Health and Welfares (Socialstyrelsen) definition of homelessness. Cramped housing accommodation and ethnic discrimination occurs. There is also an increasing risk for poverty among these people due the deficit on the housing market.

    En revolution eller en rasistisk rörelse?: En narrativ analys av två nyhetssajters beskrivning av alt-rightrörelsen2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis examines the alt-right movement through two conservative American news sites. The sites that were looked at were Breitbart and National Review. Five articles that discussed the alt-right movement were chosen from each news site. The articles that were chosen had all been written under 2016. This specific year was chosen due to the presidential election that was held that year. It is also because of the increased media coverage that the alt-right movement was receiving due to their connection to then candidate Donald Trump. The purpose of this thesis is to examine if there is a difference in the way the alt-right movement is described by the two new sites. To examine this, three factors were chosen as a foundation for the thesis. The factors dealt with the description of the members of the alt-right, racism and western values. The result showed a significant difference in how the alt-right movement was being portrayed by the articles form Breitbart and National Review. The articles from Breitbart showcased a positive description by sympathizing with their fight against the conservative establishment. The articles from National Review had a complete different outlook on the movement and deemed it as racist and threatening to the foundation of conservatism in the United States.
