Abstract [en]

The study aims to investigate how activists using civil disobedience strategically use the legal system to legitimize and raise awareness of their causes. The study will also examine how individual activists are affected and how they create long-term and sustainable activism. The purpose of the study is to gain a deeper understanding of how activists relate to the legal system, as well as to explore deeper understanding of the individual impact of the activists. The methodology underlying the study is a qualitative interview where four informants have been interviewed about their experiences and impressions of legal systems as individual influences. The theories that form the basis for the study are legal strategies by Thomas Mathiesen, legal pluralism by Håkan Gustafsson and Stellan Vinthagen with additions from Jan Svanberg and Stellan Vinthagens theory about normative regulation. The study's results show that there are several tools that activists can use to create better conditions for long-term and sustainable activism. It appears that the legal system and the extraparliamentary movements have different ways of interpreting the laws and the extra-parliamentary movements rely their pluralistic normative formation upon historical absolutions. Activists form well-planned legal strategies to achieve their long-term goals. Then the purpose of working emancipatory is to morally disconnect the monistic definition of the legal system and the hegemonic social norms. It is important to create solidarity between each other and provide opportunities for dealing with the possible traumatic situations that arise in the context of action.
