Abstract [en]

The aim of this research has been to examine young adults experience of unemployment. Based on eight interviews, a hermeneutic analysis has been made. It turned out that the experiences of unemployment in general were negative, none of the young adults considered it to be one positive or desirable situation. The conclusion of this study indicate that unemployment is one problematic and exposed situation. Unemployment had affected the individuals deeply, both their well-being and self-esteem. The conclusions also indicates that treatment and involvement from staff is crucial to the well-being for the individuals. An active input was considered better than a passive effort for their well-being. The experience of the surroundings inspection could be degrading, pitiful or neutral. During the analysis we used the theoretical concepts of stigma from the work of Erving Goffman, shame and social ties from Thomas Scheff and identity from Richard Jenkins.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna forskning har varit att undersöka unga vuxnas erfarenhet av arbetslöshet. Baserat på åtta intervjuer har en hermeneutisk analys gjorts. Resultatet visade sig att arbetslöshetserfarandet i allmänhet var negativt, ingen av de unga vuxna ansåg att det var en positiv eller önskvärd situation. Slutsatsen av denna studie tyder på att arbetslösheten är en problematisk och exponerad situation. Arbetslösheten har påverkat individerna på ett negativt sätt, både på deras välbefinnande och självkänsla. En aktiv arbetssökning betraktades som bättre än en passiv ansträngning för deras välbefinnande. Upplevelsen av omgivningens uppfattningar gällande arbetslöshet kan vara nedbrytande, eländig eller neutral. Under analysen använde vi de teoretiska begreppen stigma från Erving Goffmans teori, skam och sociala band från Thomas Scheff och identitet från Richard Jenkins.
