Title När vapnet är genus. En jämförande framing-analys av genus i militärhandböcker
Author Sande, Evelina

English abstract
Sweden is often viewed as one of the most egalitarian countries and many countries look to Sweden for policy-models or tools to implement gender equality within their institutions and organisations. This thesis contains two purposes, where the first one is to explore the background for Handbok Gender a handbook created by the Swedish Defence Forces to discover if it is something independently created by the organisation or a result of international and national directives. Through exploring this, we will determine if the view presented in the Handbok Gender is the one of the Swedish Defence Forces or just a concept to look good externally. The second part aims to compare how H Gender frame gender differently compared to two separate handbooks on gender created by Nato and the United Nations. The first part shows that although Handbok Gender is a product based on international and national directives, it is built on the experiences of the Swedish Armed Forces and can therefore be seen as their perspective on gender. Furthermore, the second parts demonstrate that the UN’s handbook shows a traditional feminist point through putting the woman as a focus point, while Nato’s handbook more presents the woman as a victim. Although, because H Gender does not specify how gender affects men and women differently it results in the H Gender not treating the problem of gender in the same extent.
