Abstract (Swedish)
This paper examines usage, function and meaning of the Swedish concept of ”otrygghet” (approx.: unsafety or insecurity) in political documents from two periods: 1970s and 2010s. Departing from a theoretical framework inspired by conceptual historian Reinhart Koselleck, this paper synchronically compares documents from Sweden’s two largest parties (Socialdemokraterna and Moderaterna), and diachronically compares conceptual usage over two periods of time. The material consists of election manifestos, and motions and propositions from the Swedish Parliament. The aim is to asses if and how the implementation of fear of crime research in Sweden (translated into Swedish as research on “otrygghet”) has affected conceptual usage. The analysis... (More)
This paper examines usage, function and meaning of the Swedish concept of ”otrygghet” (approx.: unsafety or insecurity) in political documents from two periods: 1970s and 2010s. Departing from a theoretical framework inspired by conceptual historian Reinhart Koselleck, this paper synchronically compares documents from Sweden’s two largest parties (Socialdemokraterna and Moderaterna), and diachronically compares conceptual usage over two periods of time. The material consists of election manifestos, and motions and propositions from the Swedish Parliament. The aim is to asses if and how the implementation of fear of crime research in Sweden (translated into Swedish as research on “otrygghet”) has affected conceptual usage. The analysis finds that the context the concept is used in has generally changed from work-related to crime-related. Furthermore, proposed causes of “otrygghet” have changed from being caused by powerful actors such as the state, politicians and the market, to groups low on the social hierarchy, such as criminals, beggars and gangs of youth.
