My thesis brings up the subject of power.

This is the first of the two parts that I have devided my thesis into. The second part is qualitative and examines four young politicians, and their thoughts on holding a position that is so unusual to hold at their age. This is the basis for my analysis where I bring up age as a form of discrimination. I base this part of the study on interviews that I did with four young politicians (between 26 and 30 years old). As I worked on the analysis based on my interviews I realised that gender is a question that is hard to just walk by, therefore I made a part of my analysis intersectional, with gender and age as the variables. The things I can see through my study is that young people are excluded, both internally and externally. The young politicians that are included donnot feel that the discrimination is the centre of their engagement, the politics are. (Less)
