Sammanfattning

The Swedish shelter movement has a history of 30 years and is organised in two national organisations, who provide service to roughly 300 shelters and also give voice to the movement. The study presented pictures the history and current policies of the newer of the two organisations, recently renamed Unizon. Unizon (then SKR) started 1996 as a break-out organisation from the National Organisation for Women's Shelters and Young Women's Shelters in Sweden (Roks) following internal turmoil and ideological conflict. Based on archive material, interviews with key persons within the movement as well as within official politics, and participant observations during one year of Unizon's activities, the study gave a dense picture of Unizon's political impact on current VAW policies in Sweden. Further, using a social movement perspective, the study pictured the collective identity of Unizon as - still - being the opposite of (what is perceived as) Roks; not being radical feminist, not "hating men", being an open and democratic organisation and being tuned in on the needs of children. The historical background to and development of this collective identity, and what kinds of actions and policies it opens for or limits is the focus of this discussion paper.
