A gender perspective on voluntary work (English)
Abstract [sv]

Detta är en studie om ideellt engagemang med syfta att undersöka om det är någon skillnad mellan hur kvinnor respektive män engagerar sig. Frågeställningen innefattar även varför människor väljer att engagera sig i ideella verksamheter. Angreppsättet är kvalitativt och omfattar fem semistrukturerade intervjuer och en deltagandeobservation. Utifrån det insamlade materialet tycks en viktig anledning till engagemang vara det sociala utbytet och känslan av välbefinnande som engagemanget ger. Belysningen ur ett genusperspektiv ger däremot en mer splittrad bild.

Abstract [en]

This is a study of voluntary work with a purpose of investigating if there is a difference between how women and men chose to become engaged in voluntary work. The scope also include the question of why people want to be engaged in voluntary work more generally. The approach is qualitative and the work comprises five semi structured interviews and one participatory observation. Judging from the collected material, an important reason for becoming engaged in voluntary work is the social interactions and the sense of well-being the engagement gives. The insights regarding the gender aspects are more fragmented.
