Abstract [en]

This essay focuses on different aspects of the concept of freedom of speech. The purpose is to examine the opinions and thoughts that upper secondary school students have on rights, responsibilities and limitations when it comes to freedom of speech, and to investigate theirschool experiences of the mentioned freedom. Focus groups have been used as method and two group interviews have been conducted, one at a vocational and the other at an academic upper secondary school. Overall, nine students from the third grade participated in the interviews.

The essay's results show that the students believe that everyone in society should have the

right to be heard, whether you have extreme or divergent opinions. The interviewed students

expresses that all people have great responsibility for their opinions, however that, opinions

differ on how to interpret the concept of responsibility. Some students draw their limit from a

legal point of view. But most of them believe however that the occasion will determine how

to deal with their freedom of speech. In the analysis it is made clear that their opinions and

thoughts are primarily consequentialistic, individual- and recipient oriented. The students

expresses no occasions at all, when they believe that freedom of speech should be limited by

the state. On the other hand, they believe that media has the right to suspend their discussion forum and comment fields whenever they wish to. There are differences when it comes to experiences of working with freedom of speech issues in school. The students at the academic upper secondary line have had more opportunities to work with freedom of speech issues, compared with students in the vocational upper secondary line.

Abstract [sv]

Den här uppsatsen handlar om olika aspekter kring begreppet yttrandefrihet. Syftet är att

undersöka vilka åsikter och tankar gymnasieungdomar har kring rättigheter, ansvar och

begränsningar när det gäller yttrandefriheten, samt undersöka deras undervisningserfarenheter av ovan nämnda frihet. Som metod har fokusgrupper använts och två gruppintervjuer har genomförts. Den ena på ett yrkesförberedande och den andra på ett studieförberedande gymnasium. Sammantaget var nio elever ur årskurs tre med i intervjuerna.

I uppsatsens resultat framgår det att ungdomarna anser att alla i samhället ska har rätt att yttra sig, oavsett om man har extrema eller avvikande åsikter. De intervjuade ungdomarna är tydliga med att alla människor har ett stort ansvar för sina yttranden, däremot går meningarna isär kring hur man tolkar begreppet ansvar. Några ungdomar drar sin gräns utifrån en juridisk synvinkel. Flertalet av dem menar däremot att tillfället avgör hur man ska handskas med sin yttrandefrihet. I den gjorda analysen framgår det att deras åsikter och tankar framförallt är konsekventialistiska samt individ- och mottagarorienterade. Ungdomarna uppger i intervjuerna inga tillfällen överhuvudtaget, då de anser att yttrandefriheten bör vara begränsad av staten. Däremot anser de att media har rätt att stänga av sina debattforum och kommentarsfält när de så önskar. Det är skillnad mellan vad intervjugrupperna uppger när det gäller deras erfarenheter av att arbeta med yttrandefrihetsfrågor i skolan. Ungdomarna på den studieförberedande linjen har haft fler tillfällen att jobba med yttrandefrihetsfrågor, i jämförelse med eleverna på den yrkesförberedande gymnasielinjen.
