Abstract [en]

The aim with this study is to investigate how racial biology gained its foothold in the Swedish welfare society, the consequences it entailed and how to motivate sanctions against individuals who were considered to deviate from the norm. In order to investigate these issues, I have used discourse analysis as a method. The material I have used has consisted of motions to the Swedish parliament, journal entries and other documents of importance that have been written during this time. The consequences of racial biology are the eugenics measures that affect a large group of the population, through sterilization and institutionalization. The actions are motivated by the need for protection of society and the need to reduce the risk of degeneration of the genes. The most evident in the documents, to the Swedish parliament, regarding the establishment of a racial biology institute are cost effective and degeneration issues.
