Karlstads universitet, Centrum för de samhällsvetenskapliga ämnenas didaktik.
2009 (English)Conference paper, (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Due to increased diversity in society the Police are facing several issues concerning the effects of globalization and multi-culturalization, both within the Police force itself, as well as within the society as a whole. The Police are obliged to work actively against of intolerance, xenophobia and racism in order to promote an understanding of ethnic and cultural diversity.

The aim of the project is to study processes of teaching and learning about diversity, with a focus on religion, ethnicity and culture, as found within the education of Swedish police officers. The main research questions of the project are what is being taught and learnt and how? The questions will be applied on the levels of policy, the educational setting and work practice, and highlight possible tensions between these levels.

In the paper I present some preliminary findings from the first visits to the Police Academy, with the purpose to illustrate how students view religion and its relevance for their future profession.
