Abstract [en]

The aim of my paper is to describe the new Swedish politics of women´s sexual and bodily integrity. Two Governement Bills have december 2006 and 2007 declared how the independent feminist movement of shelters for women who are victims of violence and local and regional authorites shall create networks and partnerships in order to qualify for state, financial support (totally 20 million Euro). Two case-studies have been done 2007 and 2008 to study this process. My theorizing is mainly analytically descriptive and is based on a feminist critique of the concept of governance. Governance is today as a new perspective concerning the role of the State and politics in modern society. In an Us context the concept is often used to describe political leadership. In an European context governance is mostly described as traditional political decision-making and control are regarded as inadequate to handle complex problems. A great number of different partnerships and networks can be identified where the State is one of many players. The “new ideas” of governance put emphasis on an ideal of consensus and deliberative democracy where power is eliminated to the greatest possible extent. However, a feminist perspective on men´s violence and women´s sexual integrity is a very controversial issue in everyday politics. Conflicts are a self-evident element of a democracy, according to Mouffe, who introduces the term agonism (2000). I wish to argue that the ideal of consensus as an organisational principle in networks and partnerships may constitute an obstacle to women acting as an interest group with collectively-based demands in sexual politics. It hinders an open, political discussion on fairness and unfairness or the distribution of resources where women and men as visible parties meet in a dialogue that can also comprise conflict.
