Abstract [en]

Queer theory has started to be used more within both sociology and gender studies to try to analyze the power relation amongst men and women, as well as between the heterosexual society and those sexual orientations and gender identities that do not fit the domination discourse over how women and men are supposed to act and what sexual orientation is perceived as “normal”. To analyze what societies assume is normal and what they perceive as socially constructed leads to bringing forth new power structures that have not been made visible before.

The purpose of this essay is to try to involve queer theory into political science as a tool to analyze the power structures from a new perspective in contemporary gender discourse. The aim of this study is to evaluate if UN, in their new documents concerning equality, has problematized concepts such as gender, sexual orientation and sex, as well as analyzing if the documents are confirming a heteronormative viewpoint in their way of addressing areas seen as problematic because of discrimination and oppression

The result of the analysis is that UNs equality discourse, when concerning gender, is consolidating a heteronormative perspective within their gender discourse in the way they are defining key concepts. As well as in the way they are addressing discrimination and oppression.
