With 'violations' as a yardstick: policy making against expressions of racism in Swedish education

Abstract [en]

This paper focuses on policy making against expressions if racism in Swedish education. Pierre-André Taguieff’s categorisations of racism as exclusionary and exploitative are used to define the problem, while John Dewey’s moral philosophy provides the methodological base. By analysing local policy document from upper secondary schools in Sweden, different courses of action are visualized and how they form schools as a moral and political space. The results indicate that the Swedish national laws (since 2006) have a strong impact on equal treatment plans, and that ‘non-violation’ becomes a dominant moral principle that displaces or subsumes other views of morality. How the non-violation principle is applied also affects the space for political conversations on topics that can be hurtful. It also indicates that equal treatment plans are mainly concerned with expressions of racism among students, and pay little attention to expressions of racism that occur in the organization of schools. The plans thus describe schools as a force for good that seeks to combat (potential) racism among students.
