Genderhandboken, framgång eller bakslag?: En studie utav Försvarsmaktens implementering av 1325
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This study examines a case of national implementation of United Nations resolution 1325. The object of study is the Swedish Handbook of Gender which the Swedish armed forces released in fall 2016. The interest lies in understanding how an organization dominated by masculine norms understand the concept of gender and how this can be seen in the handbook. The method used is a discourse analysis inspired by some of Norman Fairlclough’s concepts. Through the lense of Judith Butler’s performativity theory the study reveals that the Swedish implementation may perhaps not be as effective as it aims to be.
