"The great wordlessness" : Interviews with professionals who come in contact with men who are victims of domestic violence and/or sexual violence (English)
Abstract [en]

Our purpose was that through semi-structured interviews with professionals from relevant organizations and an authority, which comes in contact with men who are victims of domestic violence and/or sexual violence, highlight and analyze their experiences and perceptions of these men's victimization. The organizations and the authority that they worked for was a non-profit organization, a hospital and the Swedish police.

When it comes to these men it has emerged that they rarely contact support organizations and/or file a police report. The reason for this is, according to our study, among other factors the norms of masculinity that exist in society which claims that men can not be victims of neither domestic violence nor sexual violence, men are expected to be able to defend themselves or they are themselves the perpetrators.

Abstract [sv]

Genom intervjuer med yrkesverksamma personer från relevanta organisationer och en myndighet, som kommer i kontakt med män som utsatts för våld i nära relation och/eller sexuellt våld, var vårt syfte att belysa och analysera dessa personers erfarenheter av och uppfattningar om dessa mäns utsatthet. Organisationerna och myndigheten som de arbetade för var en ideell organisation, ett sjukhus samt Polismyndigheten.

När det gäller dessa män har det framkommit att de sällan kontaktar stödorganisationer och/eller gör en polisanmälan. Enligt studien är anledningen till detta bland annat de maskulinitetsnormer som finns i samhället som menar att män inte kan bli utsatta för varken våld i nära relation eller sexuellt våld. Detta då män förväntas kunna försvara sig själva eller själva vara förövare.
