"Again!" : A qualitative study about the attitudes of the disability rights movement towards internet and online gaming (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att ta reda på attityder inom intresseorganisationerna för personer med intellektuella funktionsnedsättningar beträffande synen på internet och onlinespel utifrån hinder och möjligheter för sina medlemsgrupper. Studien bygger på sju intervjuer med förtroendevalda och tjänstemän från organisationerna FUB, Autism- och Aspergerförbundet samt Attention. Semistrukturerade intervjuer har använts i enlighet med studiens syfte och karaktär. Materialet har transkriberats och tematiserats för att syvende sist tolkats utifrån socialkonstruktivismen i enlighet med Loseke (2003) och Spector och Kitsuse (2001). Analysen visar att förtroendevalda och tjänstemän ser både hinder och möjligheter med internet och onlinespel för sina medlemmar. Internet och onlinespel kan bidra till att öka graden av delaktighet och skapa möjligheter för självförverkligande men kan också leda till social isolering och olika former av social utsatthet.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to find out the attitudes of interest groups that organize people with intellectual disabilities regarding the perception of the Internet and online games based on the obstacles and opportunities for their members. The study is based on seven interviews with elected representatives and officials from the organizations FUB, Autism and Aspergerförbundet, and Attention. Semi-structured interviews were used in accordance with the study's purpose and character. The material has been transcribed and thematized to be interpreted on the basis of social constructivism in accordance with Loseke (2003) and Spector and Kitsuse (2001). The analysis shows that the elected representatives and officials see both obstacles and opportunities with the Internet and online gaming for their members. Internet and online games can help to increase the level of participation and provide opportunities for self-fulfillment, but can also lead to social isolation and various forms of social vulnerability.
