Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The tradition of a strong church ruling in the Swedish society ages back to the very first start of Christianity reaching the country. Due to the separation between the church and state in 2000 in Sweden, there have been a lot of changes. No longer would the church be able to influence the politics as it had been able to do before. Since Sweden is a democratic country, the decision had to be made in a voting amongst the parties. The purpose with this paper is to understand the argumentation made by the Swedish parties Socialdemokraterna, Kristdemokraterna and Centerpartiet. This has been made using a text analysis, which studies the argumentations made by the parties in their motions. The parties’ motions show whether they support the proposition of a separation between the church and state, or choose not to. The result shows that two of the parties, Socialdemokraterna and Kristdemokraterna, fully support the proposition. Centerpartiet argues that a separation amongst church and state would be devastating for both parts and therefore they choose not to recognize the proposition. Furthermore the result shows that there has been a movement of secularization made in Sweden. This is shown in the argumentation made by the parties, who argue for a state built on politics free from religious influence.
