Deliberations on Sustainable Development : A Study of Study Circle Conversation (English)
Abstract [en]

Studiecirkeln är en pedagogisk praktik som tillskrivs en roll i den svenska demokratin. Studiecirkelns genomförande svarar väl mot en demokratisk praktik som framställs i deliberativ demokratiteori. Avhandlingens idé är att belysa deliberativ demokratiteori med empiri. Med studier av studiecirkelsamtal ges möjlighet att diskutera teorin med samtalsdata. Samtalsdata genererades genom analyser av ett videoinspelat cirkelsamtal som handlade om hållbar utveckling. Studiens teoretiska ram visar fyra olika bidraga till den deliberativa demokratiteorin. Dessa presenteras i en indelning som skiljer mellan något som i avhandlingen kallas för den rationella argumentationens överläggning och en retoriskt orienterade överläggning. Genom denna indelning ges fler möjligheter att tolka fenomen i samtalsempirin och vice versa. Beträffade åsiktsbildningen i studiecirkelsamtalet finner man att cirkeldeltagarna berör en mängd olika företeelser. I detta urskiljs deltagares egna åsikter samt föreställningar som är producerade i normativa sfärer. Samtalsprocessen kännetecknas att den varierar från en period till en annan. Det gör att tillgängligheten för deltagare att kunna bidra med och ta del av yttranden varierar. Resultaten reser frågor till teorin om tolkningen av vissa begrepp.

Abstract [en]

In Sweden study circles are viewed as a vital part of the democracy due to the opportunity of the participants to deliberate. The way that the study circles work corresponds well with the notion of democratic deliberations promoted in theories of deliberative democracy. The main idea with this thesis is to elucidate the theory of deliberative democracy with empirical data from deliberations in a study circle. There are several contributions to the theory of deliberative democracy. In the thesis a distinction is made between theories that focus on the rational argument and theories that accept rhetorical speech as complement to the rational argument. In short the results show that the study circle conversation in one sense qualifies as a democratic deliberation. The participants are free to argue and allowed to have different views. When it comes to the contents of the conversation two systems of categories illustrate their formation of views. One categorisation illustrates that the participants use a wide range of opinions. The second categorisation stresses that the views of the participants were influenced by different sources. The analysis of the conversation shows a complex pattern of communication that differs from one period to another. This raises questions on how concepts used in the theories will be understood and interpreted in the light of empirical data.
