Att verka som jömställdhetsstrateg på lokal nivå : hur begränsar och möjliggör den organisatoriska miljön möjligheten att åstadkomma förändring?
Sammanfattning: During the last decades, there has been a shift towards two opposite political tendencies. On the one side, a focus on economical values has increased, and on the other side there is more focus on democratic values like gender equality. A common solution on a municipal level is to appoint intersectoral strategist to work cross sectorial to mainstream a gender perspective into every sector. The strategist’s unique positions are yet rarely explored. The focus of this essay is to explore the strategist’s professional position on an organisational- and sociology angle. The essay takes a phenomenological stand, and some interviews with local level strategists explore the position. The questions in focus in response to which public sector tendencies the profession emerged, what kind of discretion are characteristic for the strategists? According to the result, strategists can be seen as a pre-profession – that is a profession on the coming. The profession as such has emerged in accordance to the opposite political trends that emerged in governing (or governance) the public administration, where horizontal perspectives are supposedly mainstreamed into organisations with mainly vertical governing. The strategist’s responsibilities and discretion differs, even though a certain degree of discretion is necessary for the profession as such. In this discretion, different ways to undo gender are explored by the strategists. That is mainly done in the horizontal processes.
