Abstract (Swedish)
Over the last two decades there has been a significant increase in privatised areas
in the Swedish public sector. The aim of this thesis is to investigate how this has
been motivated and formulated in the Swedish parliament. This is done by
analysing the motions for privatisation that have been presented in the Swedish
parliament between the years of 1990 and 2000. The hypothesis is that there are
discourses concerning privatisation and nationalisation that need to be discussed

consisting of theories presented by David Harvey, Henri Lefebvre and Jürgen
Habermas. By using Norman Fairclough's critical discourse analysis I have
discovered four main discourses. The first examines how the word ''customer'' is
used in the motions. The second and third discourse investigates how the concept
if effectiveness and development is used in the proposals. Lastly the discourse on
neutrality is examined.
The result I have reached is that privatisation serves to increase economic
segregation in society and can also have an impact on how citizens participate in a
democracy. I suggest that further research needs the be done on the actual
consequences of privatisation. (Less)
