Problemet bortom det uppenbara

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Lunds universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

Sammanfattning: Although the history of violent extremism traces a long way back in time, it could be argued that it is an issue of greater importance in today’s society than it was a decade ago – at least in the Swedish context. In Sweden, violent extremism is used as a generic term, comprising three different extremist movements with different ideological motives. Over the recent years, the Swedish government have actively developed strategies and policies on how to counter violent extremism. The aim of this study is to understand how the issue regarding violent extremism is treated and how the term is used by the government. Carol Bacchi’s What’s the problem represented to be?-approach is used to answer the essay’s research questions that seeks to understand the government’s problem representation of the phenomenon, and the problem representation’s possible effects. The findings present that violent extremism primarily is understood as a threat to the form of government. The problem representation’s possible effects are, however, difficult to identify in the material used in this essay.
