The purpose of this study is to take a closer look at Swedish young adults sentenced to LSU (The law on enforcement of closed juvenile care) and their way back to the community. As of today in Sweden there is no written law or any specified follow-up care for young offenders when they leave an institution. The way back to society for a young offender has been debated since 1999 when the LSU act went through in Sweden. Currently, there is a memorandum from the Swedish Justice Department that addresses this area. It was published in 2009 and suggests a kind of statutory follow-up care as a possible solution. There are also two bills from 2008 and 2009, both of which address how the follow-up process should look like for young offenders. They also suggest that a statutory follow-up care seems to be the best option. The investigations regarding the issue has been debated whether follow-up care should be voluntary or whether it should become embedded as part of the penalty, and thus become a mandatory part of the process that aims to rehabilitate the young offender. Our theoretical approach in this study is social constructivism, we will look at the follow-up care as something that is constructed and created in a social context. We will develop our analysis using the concept of disciplinary power and discourse. We used a qualitative method to collect the material for this study. The material itself were collected using interviews with people working close to young offenders, the questions used in the interviews were semi-structured. (Less)
