Medborgardialog i Västerviks kommun : En studie om begreppet som Kropp utan Organ

Detta är en Magister-uppsats från Linköpings universitet/Statsvetenskap

Sammanfattning: This paper aims to present an alternative understanding of the Civil Dialogue project run by Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions (SALAR) by translating the concepts of civil dialogue into concepts from Gilles Deleuzes theory of Body without Organs (BwO) and the terminology of machines. The translation makes it possible to think of civil dialogue as a virtual entity consisting of three main machines. The machine of questions, the machine of participation and the machine of subject. The concepts of machines and the BwO is then used in scrutinizing the local policies of civil dialogue in the municipality of Västervik. This paper finds that the use of an alternative terminology to understand civil dialogue makes it possible to identify errors and difficulties in the local policies of Västervik. The civil dialogue policy in Västervik seems to be constructed for the use of civil dialogue as an activity according to the dialog position of the participation machine but not for the other places in the same machine. Another challenge seems to be the aim for the civil dialogue which must be articulated inside the territory of the question machine and to draw the right lines for the participating subject of the subject machine.
