Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study has been to investigate how the temperance movement IOGT in Karlstadcampaigned for people to vote for a referendum on alcohol in 1922 and how it has been tackled bythe local press. To answer the purpose a qualitative text interpretation has been used from IOGT'smeetings protocols and the local press used are the two largest newspapers in Karlstad during thisperiod of time, Karlstads-Tidningen and Nya Wermlands-Tidningen. The type of examinationperformed is called interpretive case study where it has been used a theoretical basis. Thetheoretical point is Habermas Bourgeois publicity also been used by Lars Båtefalk in his thesisStaten, samhället och superiet. Can the temperance movement be said to take part of the publicsphere?The results show that IOGT during this period have grown large enough to be a part of the publicwhich Båtefalk mean was not the case around 1900. They make use of lectures on large easilyaccessible places, spreading their message in print and in newspapers. The local press in Karlstadopposed IOGT and prohibitions friends but it can be connected to each newspapers politicalorientation wich is liberal and conservative. The arguments that appears for both sides are based onfour subjects: comparisons with other countries prohibition, legal, medical-social and economic.
