Kvinnofridskränkning - ett stort samhällsproblem : En fallstudie av hur ett par kommuner i Kronobergs län hanterar kvinnovåldsproblematiken

by Strömblad, Sara

Abstract (Summary)
Equal opportunity issues are considered to have a clear position in Swedish policy and the making of Swedish gender policy is considered a precursor. Though many experts and scientists have shed light on the fact that the issue of women assault has had a less stable development than other gender issues such as child care, the labour market etc. within the Swedish society, and that it does not attract the wide political support it needs. The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the Municipalities', in the county of Kronoberg, policy on the issue of women assault within their local policies of equality. In my thesis I have chosen a theoretical framework that is built on a dilemma of justice based on three different dimensions; the extent, content and influence of the local policies. To clarify I have subsequently summarized these three as ideal types politics of recognition and politics of redistribution.I came to the conclusion that the prerequisites for the issue of women assault and its consequences to attract attention would increase if the issue was more frequently debated amongst the local politicians in the county. Women assault is not just a serious societal problem but also an obstacle for a sustainable societal development.
