The Swedish probation service, same for everyone? : Gender pattern and variations in probation service recommendations of sanction (English)
Abstract [sv]

Sammanfattning:

Forskning har visat att myndigheters beslut och insatser påverkas av klientens könstillhörighet. Frivården har deltagit i ett regeringsprojekt kallat JiM vilket syftar till att säkerställa att myndigheters verksamhet präglas av ett jämställdhetsperspektiv. Denna uppsats har utifrån ett genusperspektiv undersökt hur kön influerar personutredares förslag och motiveringar till påföljd. Genom en kvalitativ vinjettmetod har sex personutredare fått bedöma en vinjett där endast könstillhörigheten på klienten har ändrats. Resultaten analyserades sedan med hjälp av Yvonne Hirdmans genusteori vilket visade att könsrelaterade mönster framträder i personutredarnas förslag och motiveringar samt att klientens könstillhörighet tycks inverka på förslaget till påföljd. Vår slutsats är att genus omedvetet kan influera oss också i en yrkesroll som exempelvis personutredare på ett frivårdskontor, detta är något vi måste vara vaksamma på och diskutera för att inte riskera att reproducera och upprätthålla genuskontrakt och den sociala könsordningen.

Abstract

The Swedish probation service, same for everyone?

Gender pattern and variations in probation service recommendations of sanction

Research has shown that public decisions and interventions are often affected by the clients´ gender. The Swedish probation service has participated in a governmental project called JiM to ensure that the working practice of the authorities must be characterized by a gender equality perspective. This paper is based on a gender perspective and has explored how gender influences on the probation officers risk assessments and recommendations of sanction. Through a qualitative vignette method six individual probation officers received a vignette where only the gender of the client had changed. Yvonne Hirdmans´ gender theory was used to analyze the results. It showed that gender patterns appear in probation officers risk assessments and recommendations of sanction and that the clients´ gender seems to influence the recommendations of sanction. Our conclusion is that gender unconsciously can influence us in a professional capacity such as probations officers, and this is something we must be aware of and discuss to reduce the risk of reproducing and maintaining gender contracts and the social gender order.
