Studenteropgave: Bachelorprojekt


This bachelor thesis is a qualitative study of the participation of young men from
‘Blågårdskvarteret’ in the street riots in Nørrebro, with the aim of exploring the
impact of society on the young men’s social life and involvement in the riots. In this
project, we investigate the society’s evaluation, categorizing and response of the
young men’s social identity and examine how the impact of stigma affects the social
life of the young men. Furthermore, we investigate how it contributes to a feeling of
lacking recognition among the young men in ‘Blågårdskvarteret’, and why
recognition is an important aspect for the young men. The project is divided into
three analyses applying Axel Honneth’s theory of recognition, Howard Becker’s
concept of deviation, and Erving Goffman’s theory of stigma. Through the analysis,
we demonstrate that society contributes to the self-image construction of the young
men and their options because they become more aware of their social identity as a
result of the social stigma. The stigmatizing conditions of the young men have also
led to form a distrust to the society, due to their challenging social life, where they
must often prove themselves and continuously fight for recognition from others and
society. We thus conclude that the frustration from a lack of social recognition
among the young men from ‘Blågårdskvarteret’ to a large degree explains their
participation in the riots in Nørrebro.
