  1. 1. Transgender and gender-diverse youth caught in the intersection of policy making, politics, gender-affirming care, and feminist discourse

    University essay from Malmö universitet/Institutionen för globala politiska studier (GPS)

    Author : Julia Hagstedt; [2022]
    Keywords : Transgender youth; policy making; feminism; UK; Sweden;

    Abstract : This thesis explores how presuppositions and assumptions can affect policy making, by investigating if anti-trans and 'gender critical' rhetoric may have affected the now reversed NHS policy ‘Amendments to service specification for gender identity development service for children and adolescents’ which directly influenced the still in use Karolinska University Hospital policy, ‘Policyförändring gällande hormonell behandling till minderåriga patienter med könsdysfori inom Tema Barn’. By using the Foucauldian inspired poststructural WPR policy analysis method by Bacchi and Goodwin, it was uncovered that the underlying assumptions and presuppositions of the hegemonic ‘truths’ the representation of the problem relied on, assumed dominance through an increase of anti-transgender and anti-gender-diverse rhetoric in political and public debates, and in media.

  2. 2. Brilliantly Radical or Radically Violent? : A Poststructural Policy Analysis of the Northern Irish Together: Building a United Community Peacebuilding Strategy

    University essay from Malmö universitet/Institutionen för globala politiska studier (GPS)

    Author : Sara Buus Marcussen; [2022]
    Keywords : Northern Ireland; peacebuilding; peace walls; WPR; T:BUC; The Troubles; poststructural policy analysis;

    Abstract : With a starting point in the Together: Building a Shared Community strategy (T:BUC) published in 2013 by the Government of Northern Ireland’s Executive Office, this study examines two of the strategy’s Key Priorities: Our Shared Community and Our Safe Community, in order to analyze contemporary peacebuilding efforts carried out by the Northern Irish government. The study is guided by the research question: Why might the strategic aims such as removing all interface barriers by 2023 in the T:BUC fail in their attempts to build peace? To answer this question, the thesis takes a qualitative methodological approach relying on both primary and secondary data and Carol Bacchi’s method of ‘What’s the Problem Represented to Be’ approach to poststructural policy analysis.

    University essay from Malmö universitet/Institutionen för globala politiska studier (GPS)

    Author : Lea Schwacke; [2022]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Although femicide, the gender-related killing of females, is a phenomenon which cross-cuts societes and national borders, in European countries such as Germany, the news coverage of such cases differs according to whether victim and/or perpetrator are ascribed to belong to the 'majority society' or to 'migrant', in particular Muslim-marked, communities. This thesis aims to contribute to the discussion on femicide in connection with cultural racism by conducting a Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) to examine the representation of two recent femicide cases in four German newspapers.
