Abstract [en]

In this study we have done a comparative discourse analysis about homelessness. We have studied how the discourse about homelessness have been constructed among national institutions. In order to succeed, we have examined two documents from the national public investigations (SOU). The first document is a consideration from 1922 about the law concerning vagrants. The second document is a consideration about homelessness from 2001. The discourse about homelessness is analyzed with Michelle Foucault's discourse theory, which we use as a theoretical framework. The discourse is further analyzed with Foucault's theory about power. In our study we have found interesting differences and equalities in the empirical data. We have noticed how power have been used differently, depending on the historical context. Further we have identified how the most problematised categories, is the ones that have been handled with most authority. We have also noticed differences in which aspects of homelessness that have been problematized in the two texts.

Abstract [sv]

I den här studien har vi gjort en komparativ diskursanalys över hemlöshet. Vi har undersökt hur diskursen kring hemlöshet konstruerats bland statliga politiska institutioner. För att lyckas med det har vi analyserat två dokument ur statens offentliga utredningar (SOU). Första texten är ett lagbetänkande om 1886 års lösdrivarlag, skrivet 1923. Den andra texten är ett betänkande om hemlöshet från 2001. Diskursanalysen utgår från Michel Foucaults 3

diskursteori. Utifrån diskursen så har vi har också studerat hur hemlöshet hanterats, vilket vi kopplat till Foucaults maktteknologiska begreppsapparat. I empirin har vi hittat intressanta likheter och skillnader. Vi har identifierat hur makt tillämpas annorlunda beroende på vilken tid vi undersöker. Vi har även noterat att de mest problematiserade kategorierna av hemlösa är de som hanteras strängast. Vi har också hittat skillnader och likheter i vilka områden inom hemlöshetsdiskursen som problematiseras i de två texterna.
