Abstract (Swedish)

Utifrån resultaten diskuteras vidare en eventuell fara med att inte definiera vissa aspekter som rasism, problematiken... (More)

Utifrån resultaten diskuteras vidare en eventuell fara med att inte definiera vissa aspekter som rasism, problematiken med Sverigedemokraternas språkbruk och ordval i förhållande till den anti-rasistiska diskursen samt några tankar kring vad ett principprogram i realiteten innebär.
