A secular Lucia? : An argumentation analysis of the debates about the Swedish educational system's policy toward religious institutions and traditions during the years 2011-2012 (English)
Abstract [en]

On the 1st of July 2011 a new education act was carried out, which elucidate that all education in course of a public principal shall be non-denominational. In relation to this a public debate about the educational system's policy toward religious institutions, particularly the earlier nation church Svenska Kyrkan, and religious traditions burst out. This thesis reconstructs the “Lucia debates” that were kept during the years 2011-2012. The aim of this thesis is to identify the mechanisms of the Lucia debate's issue and progress. Further are the discussed question formulations “Why have the medial debates come into existence?” and “What forces manage the debates to progress?”. Through using an analytical qualitative argumentation method the debates were reconstructed of digital debate articles published at the Swedish forums Newsmill and SvT Debatt. The implications of the first question formulation are that the debates have come into existence through the concreteness of the Swedish secularisation among clusters of people in society, and that this people therefore force themselves to discuss the transformative process. The implication is also that several groups share variant normalized social structures which they will discuss when the dissimilarities become distinct for them. The implications of the second question formulation are that the debates have progressed through cluster's and individual's need to receive their social institutions confirmed as valid, but also by reason of the inability among the public representatives to create an universal secular legislation.
