Abstract [en]

This study is based on the notion of "the postsecular society". I have identified both similar and dissimilar values within current and official publications regarding human rights and gender equality authored by the Swedish Feminist Party and the Church of Sweden. The aim of this study is to identify and review similarities and differences in values, as expressed in definitions and standpoints, and also to try to explain how it is that the actors have similar and dissimilar values. In this context I have chosen the sociologist Jürgen Habermas's theory about "the postsecular society" to increase the understanding how and why similar values within religious and secular actors are presented in, what Habermas calls, "the postsecular society". 

I have used a qualitative and comparative content analysis for this study. The result shows that the Swedish Feminist Party has a more humanistic view. They weave together equality and gender when they write about human rights. The Church of Swedens's definition is based on only gender and sex. The results also shows that the Church of Sweden wants to be an actor in "the public debate". According to Habermas's theory the Swedish Feminist Party would had translated their values in their party program to a secular language because ideas like human rights, according to Habermas, emerged from a religious context. I found in this study that Habermas's theory cannot explain their similar and dissimilar values, and that it rather tends to go contrary to what Habermas argues. It is the Church of Sweden that rather tends to translate their values so that they are in agreement with secular society.
