    Gender segregation in the Swedish labour market: Historical, Sociological and Rational Choice institutionalism as tools for understanding inequality and why it still exists2010Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    There is a wide spread discrimination between the genders at the Swedish labour market. Women get lower wages, their skills are undervalued compared to men, it is harder for women to advance, they are more likely to involuntary do part time jobs and they usually end up in the least qualified and stimulating jobs. The governmental policy seems affectless and companies are unable or unwilling to change. Historical, sociological and rational choice institutionalism can offer an explanation to the problem. The segregation has historical roots that go back to the early days of industrialisation when women entered the labour market with working conditions that were worse than men‟s. Because of the conservatory character of institutions, the perceptions of the genders have been reproduced until today. The conclusion is that what the government does is less important than the fact that it does anything since the institutions are working to conserve the current order.

    Att anpassa normerna till människorna: Heteronormativa diskurser i svensk migrationspolicy2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

     

    The Swedish migration authority has been criticized for not having enough knowledge on issues concerning gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex people since visas has been declined even if the person fulfil the conditions. Couples of the same sex have not been processed as a couple. People with the "wrong" sexual orientation have had their asylums applications declined if sexual identity was the reason for persecution until 2005, when sexuality was accepted as reason for refugee status. These types of actions have been criticized for discrimination caused by heteronormative discourses.

    Queer feministic theory is sceptical to societal norms and their influence on how people are being treated. Heteronormative discourses in Swedish migration policy will be visible and analysed with the queer feministic theory. The policy will be represented by five public investigations dealing with refugees and family reunification.

    The results from the analysis show tendencies to both heteronormative and patriarchal structures in the migration policy. Today the consciousness of gender issues is present which results in a will to use gender and sexuality neutral language. The term registered partners is more frequently used which can be seen as the institution of partnership has been included in the norm. The gay man is only part who has been accepted. The female sexuality has in general been ignored in the discourses and even more the sexuality of the homosexual woman.
