Power, participation and influence : the changing discourse regarding adolescents (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this thesis is to analyze how the governmental discourse concerning adolescents has changed over the past 30 years. How ”problems” regarding adolescents are represented within three different governmental commissions are therefore analyzed. Furthermore, the aim is to reconstruct the normative assumptions in which these commissions are produced. Both the method and the theoretical framework of the thesis, is based on Carol Bacchi’s ”what´s the problem represented to be?” (WPR-approach). The results of the analyses shown how there has been a change in how the governmental commission represents adolescents.  30 years ago they were not considered as an important group at all. Today they are at least pinpointed as an important group that should be considered in the making of policies. The results also indicate that the changes in governmental discourse regarding adolescents can be narrowed down to thee different notions; power; participation and influence.
