The purpose of this study is to identify how gender and national belonging are intertwined, and how they effect concepts such as citizenship and integration. The study aims to identify a cultural understanding of gender in Danish political documents regarding equality and integration. In pursuit of this aim I have used a discourse analysis to identify whether the documents create different possibilities for different representations, in the sense of being part of a Danish national belonging. My analysis focuses on identifying how the documents operate with inclusion and exclusion, by performing a certain understanding of how to organise gendered relations. My theoretical framework gives me an understanding of the documents as social performing practices that does something with the reality it operates within, generating material consequences to the sense of belonging and social kinship. The study, as in earlier studies in the field, shows that women have key positions in integrations processes. It also identifies a presumption of different views on gender and gender relations, as obstacles to being part of the Danish work market. Furthermore, the study shows how participation within the Danish work market is a key factor for the possibility of being part of the national belonging. (Less)
