Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to analyze how teenage girls and boys are judged differently by their socially destructed behavior in the context of social- and legal system in Sweden. My focus has been to illustrate how risk factors are expressed differently depending on gender notion. The study is based on a document analysis of eight legal cases, applied by the social welfare board. I have used a social constructivist perspective to analyze the collected data, since the legal texts are a construction produced by the social- and legal systems. This study theory has been inspired by Judith Butlers theory, which focuses on normative frameworks on gender and sexuality. My conclusion illustrates that the authors who produced the legal texts, from the social- and legal system, seemed to perceive more risk in girls than in boys. The risk factors with girls often tend to problematize their sexuality and vagabonding. On the other hand, the analyze illustrates concrete evidence that the boys risk factors problematized their drug use and criminal behavior.
