Abstract [sv]

Uppsatsens syfte är att genom diskursanalys identifiera hur begreppet “partnerskap” tillskrivs mening genom olika diskurser inom ramen för hållbar global utveckling, med särskilt fokus på privatoffentliga partnerskap (POP). Genom att tillämpa diskursiva begrepp från Laclau och Mouffes diskursteori har tre huvudsakliga diskurser och tillhörande nodalpunkter identifierats: globalisering, governance och solidaritet. Dessa olika men delvis överlappande diskurser tillskriver olika meningar till partnerskapsbegreppet, likväl som olika roller och identiteter till privat respektive offentlig sektor. Partnerskap är konstruerat som en nödvändighet för att lösa globala problem, en ideal samverkansform för hållbar utveckling samt som ett uttryck för global solidaritet. Vidare framkommer att privat sektor tillskrivs en mer aktiv roll, medan offentlig sektor ges en mer passiv och stöttande roll.

Abstract [en]

By applying discourse analysis, the purpose of this essay is to identify how different meanings are assigned to the term “partnership” through competing discourses in the context of global Sustainable Development, with special attention devoted to Public-Private Partnerships (PPP). Using concepts from Laclau and Mouffe’s discourse theory, three main discourses and corresponding nodal points have been identified: globalization, governance and solidarity. These different albeit somewhat overlapping discourses apply different meanings to the term partnership, and also attribute different roles and identities to the public and private sector respectively. Partnerships are constructed as a necessity for solving global issues, an ideal form of governance for sustainable development and as a natural expression for global solidarity. Furthermore, the results point towards a more active role appointed to the private sector, whilst public institutions are assigned a more passive and supportive role.
