The Swedish prostitution policy - does gender matter? : A discourse analytical study of the swedish prostitution policy (English)
Abstract [en]

This paper is a discourse analytic policy study with the intention to investigate the swedish government's policy action plan against prostitution and trafficking for sexual purposes. The document is called Handlingsplan mot prostitution och människohandel för sexuella ändamål. The purpose of the study is to investigate whether there is a feminist gender understanding taking place in the action plan. This is made by both see how the problem of prostitution is produced partly by examining whether there is a gender-based power analysis in action. The research questions of this study are:

  • What is considered being the problem with prostitution and trafficking fosexual purposes?
  • Is there a feminist gender understandning in the government's prostitution politics?

To answer these questions I use Carol Bacchis method Whats the problem represented to be? And the material being used is the government's actionplan. Previous research and feminist theory has been the basis for the analysis of the action plan. My results shows that the problem of prostitution is represented in three different ways; an equality problem, a problem for exposed groups in the community and for last crime problems. My analysis also suggests a lack of understanding of gender power in the government's prostitution policy.

Abstract [sv]

Denna uppsats är en diskursanalytisk policystudie med avsikt att undersöka regeringens policydokument Handlingsplan mot prostitution och människohandel för sexuella ändamål. Syftet med studien är att undersöka huruvida det finns en könsmaktsförståelse i prostitutionspolitiken genom att dels se till hur problemet med prostitution framställs dels genom att undersöka om det förekommer en könsmaktsanalys i handlingsplanen. Forskningsfrågorna lyder som följer:

 

  • Hur representeras problematiken rörande prostitution och människohandel i regeringens politik?
  • Finns det en könsmaktsförståelse i regeringens politik rörande prostitution och människohandel?

 Metoden som används i studien är Carol Bacchis diskursanalytiska ansats Whats the problem represented to be? Det empiriska material som använts är regeringens handlingsplan. Tidigare forskning och feministisk teori ligger till grund för analysen av materialet. 

Analysen visar att problemet med prostitution framställs på tre olika sätt. Dessa framställningar har jag valt att benämna; ett jämställdhetsproblem, ett problem för utsatta grupper i samhället samt ett kriminalitetsproblem. Enligt min analys så tyder framställningen på en bristande könsmaktsförståelse i regeringens prostitutionspolitik.
