Abstract [sv]

This study aims to investigate if and how the Swedish Government represents ethnic stereotypes in an official discourse about how segregation in school will be reduced and prevented. Thus the material that I will analyse is the Swedish government's most recently delivered policy document, where solutions to reduce and prevent in school segregation from year 2018 until 2028 are explicitly proposed. The methodology that is adopted in this study is qualitative text analysis. Hence I will use pre-defined analytical tools to investigate how segregation is represented and also what norms are conveyed. Throughout the text analysis I will use previous research and theory about what ethnic stereotypes are to identify if and how ethnic stereotypes occur in the document. The results of the analysis is that a socioeconomic perspective dominates the discourse. Simultaneously traces of ethnic stereotypes also occur. The conclusion of this study is that although there is an explicit will to counter segregation in the Swedish government's official discourse, still traces of ethnic stereotypes occur in the policy document. Hence even in the case of the Swedish Social Democratic government implicit expressions of ethnic stereotypes occur, which might indicate the width of institutionalised ethnic stereotypes in society.
