Abstract [en]

The purpose of this work is to study, understand and explain the concepts of power, obedience and disobedience. The study has two focuses. How power, obedience and disobedience can be manifested in organizations where people find themselves as employees. How power, obedience and disobedience can be manifested for people who are outside the labor market and in labor market measures. Max Weber, Emile Durkheim and Michel Foucault with their respective approaches have formed the theoretical base and analytical tools for the study. The aim is to apply their theories to real-world examples to gain greater insight into how power, obedience and disobedience may seem to people who are at work as employees - or outside of work as unemployed. A qualitative literature is used as a method to investigate what forms power, obedience and disobedience can have. The approach was to survey the literature that is based on reality both in and outside work. Five books from different environments and times are being analyzed with these three theories as the base, added by other background literature. The reality-based literature is selected based on the purpose of the work. The studied literature has been used to search for possible and identifiable patterns of power, obedience and disobedience for people who are in work and people who are outside. The theories that have been the basis for this study each have different perspectives on power and present no common perspective. Various analyzes of power has thus been able to contribute to a broader understanding of various possible patterns of power, obedience and disobedience.Keywords: Power.
