Title Sverigedemokraternas kriminalpolitik - På stämplingsteoretisk grund
Author(s) Douhan, Johanna ; Djordjevic, Gabi
Date 2011
English abstract
The purpose of this study is to analyze what criminological theory explanations the Sweden Democrats use in their criminal politics. The three main questions from which we assume are: How do the Sweden Democrats approach crime? On which criminological theory is the Sweden Democrat’s policy of crime based upon? And which measures and preventive methods do the Sweden Democrats find appropriate to fight criminality? Our hypothesis is that the Sweden Democrat’s reuse/reproduce the Labeling Theory and that the party with its standpoints in this area and the rhetoric used, create a risk for individuals and/or groups of people to be labeled. The labeling can then contribute to increasing crime, in the form of the self-fulfilling prophecy. Our study is a qualitative study, based on literature studies. The analyze method that used for the collected material, is the content analysis. The five analyzed documents are written and publicized by the party. The results in this study suggest support for the tested hypothesis.
