Abstract [sv]

Syftet med vår studie var att synliggöra befintliga diskurser gällande våld i nära relation

utifrån utredarnas resonerande inom polisen för att i nästa led synliggöra dess

konsekvenser. Metoden som valdes var av kvalitativ karaktär, intervjuer hölls med tre

utredare från en mellanstor stad i Sverige. Materialet bearbetades sedan med hjälp av en

Foucault-inspirerad diskursanalys samt tidigare forskning som gjorts kring ämnet. Tre

diskurser identifierades vilka var diskursen om könstillhörighet,

normaliseringsprocessen och inställningen till teoretisk kunskap. Resultatet visar att

utredarnas inställning till teoretisk kunskap är något som på flera olika sätt påverkar

deras arbete vilket riskerar att leda till att utredarnas arbete bygger på otillförlitlig

kunskap.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of our study was to identify existing discourses of violence in close

relationships based on investigators' reasoning within the police in order to visualize its

consequences in the next step. The method chosen was of a qualitative nature, interviews

were held with three investigators from a medium-sized city in Sweden. The material was

then processed using a discourse analysis inspired by Foucault, as well as previous

research on the subject. Three discourses were identified which were the discourse of

gender, the normalization process and the attitude to theoretical knowledge. The result of

the study shows that the investigators' attitude towards theoretical knowledge is something

that affects their work in different ways, which may adventure the fact that investigators'

work is based on unreliable knowledge.
