Gender equality, integration and gender mainstreaming : A discourse analysis of how social workers’ working with refugees includes a gender equality perspective (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate how Swedish social workers’ working with refugees integrates a gender perspective in their daily work. The study was executed through a vignette study among 5 social workers working with reception of refugees in two minor Swedish municipalities. The participating social workers worked with the reception, financial aid, housing for refugees arriving to the municipality after receiving residence permit. The material was analyzed through a discourse analysis. The result showed a lack of knowledge and uncertainty among the social workers about gender equality as a concept and how it should be implemented in their work. The result also showed the complexity of gender equality, integration, and gender mainstreaming and how the issue with gender equality could be placed on different levels; from the individuals own responsibility to change his or hers own life, to laws and policy documents that according to the social workers should be adjusted to easily apply a gender equality perspective to the social work.
