IFPI : En postkolonial kritik av handelsorganets organisationsstruktur och ideologi (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to present a postcolonial critique that may empower non-Western music industries globally. As per Nigerian music executive Tunde Ogundipe’s reasoning, its analysis isn’t prescriptive – it presents a critical analysis of IFPI’s organisation and ideology, which non-Western stakeholders may use as free strategic business intelligence if/as they please. Using a sociological methodology, IFPI’s organisational structure and operations are analysed with reference to three postcolonial axes: ideology, history and political geography. The analysis uncovers colonial path dependencies and present-day policies that reproduce the ‘civilising mission’.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med detta examensarbete är att presentera en postkolonial kritik som kan stärka icke-västerländska musikindustrier globalt. Enligt den nigerianska musikföretagsledaren Tunde Ogundipes resonemang är analysen inte föreskriftsmässig – den presenterar en kritisk analys av IFPIs organisation och ideologi, vilken icke-västerländska intressenter kan använda som gratis strategisk affärsintelligens om/som de vill. Med hjälp av en sociologisk metodik analyseras IFPI:s organisationsstruktur och verksamhet med hänvisning till tre postkoloniala axlar: ideologi, historia och politisk geografi. Analysen påvisar kolonialt stigberoende och samtida policys som reproducerar den “civiliserande missionen”.
