Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to, with a phenomenological approach, investigate how men and women who have committed crimes are being treated by relevant authorities. Four qualitative interviews were conducted and analyzed. The results of these interviews showed that the informants perceived that they were being treated on the basis of stereotyped beliefs, that these beliefs differed depending on whether they were men or women and that this led to negative consequences for the informants. The result was then analyzed by gender theory and stigmatization. This gave an increased understanding of how gender is being constructed in the treatment and how the informants were stigmatized in interaction with authorities and discriminated because of the stereotypical beliefs that the authorities have about them as a person. Based on this, the result showed that the male informants were stigmatized as criminals and discriminated to a greater extent than the female informants, which was based on authorities' stereotyped beliefs about men linked to crime.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att, med en fenomenologisk ansats, undersöka hur män och kvinnor som har begått brott bemöts av berörda myndigheter. För att ta reda på detta genomfördes fyra kvalitativa intervjuer. Resultatet av dessa intervjuer visade att informanterna upplevde att de blev bemötta utifrån stereotypa föreställningar, att dessa föreställningar skilde sig åt beroende på om de var män eller kvinnor samt att detta ledde till negativa konsekvenser för informanterna. Resultatet analyserades sedan med hjälp av genusteori och stigmatisering. Detta gav en ökad förståelse för hur genus konstrueras i bemötandet samt hur informanterna stigmatiserades i interaktionen med myndigheter och diskriminerades på grund av de stereotypa föreställningar som myndigheterna har om dem som person. Utifrån detta visade resultatet att de manliga informanterna blev stigmatiserade som brottslingar och diskriminerade i större utsträckning än de kvinnliga informanterna, vilket grundade sig i myndigheters stereotypa föreställningar om män kopplat till brottslighet.
