Abstract [en]

This thesis aims to fill the gap of comparative studies between political discourses about honour-based oppression and violence against women in different contexts. The political representations of honour-based problems in Sweden and UK are described and compared in the time period of 2009-2014, and the similarities and differences between the political discourses are provided. Based on the ontology of social constructivism and Bacchi’s approach

"what is the problem represented to be?" a qualitative analysis is made in order to provide and compare representations in the two contexts. The analysis will show that the patriarchal representation is central in Sweden, which can be concluded and related to the highly achieved gender-equality in the country, and generalized to other gender-equal countries. In the British discourse both cultural and patriarchal representations are frequently used by mainstream politics, but there are also religious representations of the honour-based problems in some debates
