Hjältar och Offer: Om hedersliv, förtryck och frihet

Heroes and Victims : On honorable living, oppression and freedom (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna studie i socialantropologi är baserad på kvalitativa intervjuer av fyra unga killar med rötter i hederskulturen. Tre av dem är medlemmar i gruppen Sharaf Hjältar och kämpar aktivt mot hedersförtryck. I studien ingår även en fältstudie av Sharaf Hjältars arbete i form av föreläsningar. Fokus ligger på dessa unga killars personliga erfarenheter från sin uppväxt i familjer präglade av hederskulturen, killarnas arbete som Sharaf hjältar och deras erfarenheter i relation till hur andra har det. Det sistnämnda inbegriper så väl invandrare som svenskar, tjejer som killar och närstående/bekanta som för killarna okända individer. Sharaf Hjältar är en verksamhet under Elektra, som syftar till att förändra killars attityder, då det inte räcker med att enbart hjälpa utsatta flickor. Trots att Elektra har en stereotyp grundsyn där flickor oftast ses som offer och pojkar som förövare, visar killarnas erfarenheter, så väl direkta och indirekta, att även killar utsätts för hedersrelaterat förtryck eller tvingas leva ett hedersrelaterat liv.

Abstract [en]

This thesis in Social Anthropology is based on interviews with four young men with their roots in the “honour-culture”. Three of them are members of “Sharaf Hjältar” (“Sharaf Heroes”) and are actively fighting honour-related oppression. Included in the study is also a field-study of the work of Sharaf Hjältar, consisting of seminars. The focus are on the personal experiences of the above-mentioned young men, from growing up in families inside the honour-culture, their work in Sharaf Hjältar, and their experiences in relation to their views of other’s. The last mentioned part includes both immigrants and Swedes, male and female, and closely related as well as, for the interviewed young men unknown individuals. Sharaf Hjältar is a sub-organisation to Elektra, that strives to change attitudes among young men, as only supporting exposed girls isn’t enough. Despite Elektra having a stereo-typical basic view where the girls are usually seen as victims, and boys and men as perpetrators, the interviewed young men’s experiences – direct as well as indirect – shows that boys also are exposed to honour-related oppression, or are forced into an honour-based lifestyle.
