    The following thesis analyses the narratives around parenting mobility through the theory of structural stories. The investigation delves into how parental discourse influences the waychildren move around Santiago de Chile. Their impressions of the urban environment create spaces and realities which result in a game between freedom and unfreedom among adults andchildren, where the older ones define a limit to the public areas according to their perceptions. What is the vision of children in the city? Why is there a constant companionship until old age inthe movement of children in Santiago? Why is it essential to design and plan the city with children in mind?

    This study is an exploration of Beyond GDP and how it is implemented in Friesland. More specifically it is a study to find the political challenges of Beyond GDP. In contemporary economics GDP is often used as the metric to track economic activity of a country, in the Netherlands for example GDP is used during the state of the union.Critics argue that GDP itself is no longer an accurate indicator of economic progress. They argue that wellness and wellbeing are no longer linked to increases in GDP, which is the original assumption of GDP. These economists argue that a new set of performance indicators are necessary to better track the economy and help make policy to improve human life. These indicators often being called Beyond GDP, which aims to measure both wellness and wellbeing in conjunction with the economy. The instrumental use of Beyond GDP is limited, which is the direct use of the indicators. This study explores what Beyond GDP looks like in Friesland and what its political challenges are. Friesland is considered a favourable case for Beyond GDP because it has been ratified in its administration accord, which is the basis for the formation of the provincial administration. The hypothesis is that instrumental and conceptual use will be limited in Friesland because of the political challenges regarding the implementation of Beyond GDP. The political barriers considered are the following: The degree of democratic legitimacy, strong narrative that engages the public, clear political imperative using Beyond GDP for political ends, support from institutional and political actorsThe study is done through a document analysis where the Province of Friesland is considered a case-study. The case-study is purposive and critical. Assuming the Province is a favourable case the conclusions could be generalised to less favourable cases. Judging by the previously stated barriers the implementation of Beyond GDP in Friesland is very limited. The support from the inhabitants is not researched by the government, the narrative surrounding Beyond GDP is strong but is not actually linked to Beyond GDP in a meaningful way. There is little to no support of the political parties. The administration seems to be using the concept of Beyond GDP as a political tool to achieve its own ends. There is little information about support from institutional and political actors except that there needs to be more knowledge for civil servants regarding Beyond GDP. The implementation of Beyond GDP is likely a plan for the long term as it is a concept that takes time to develop. An integral implementation of Beyond GDP is likely necessary to implement it in the provinces of the Netherlands. The state has a function here in creating benchmarks and help define Beyond GDP. However, this is unlikely to happen in the current political climate. There are limitations to this study. The fifth barrier needs more exploration because it requires a different research method to gather data. A document analysis does not account for more informal processes within a government because these are not documented. For future studies it would be interesting to find out how the concept of Beyond GDP arrived at the province, it would also be interesting to have more in depth analysis of why certain political parties are for or against Beyond GDP.

    This paper examines how dominant heterosexual discourses influence the representation of minority positions in The L Word: Generation Q. With influential theorists as Kimberle Crenshaw, Judith Butler, Stuart Hall and more, I investigate how the series represents lesbian women. I find that the series has a more nuanced way of representing lesbians as proposed to rely on stereotypical depictions. The heterosexual frame is a norm, and thereby is a way of categorizing people in terms of gaining understanding of sexual and romantic relationships. The series helps break down this norm and the binaries in the portrayal of both lesbian relationships and transgender people’s bodies. I find that the series has an increased focus on intersectionality, which is displayed by the diverse cast and by the themes of the series. The series lacks a more nuanced way of representing non- binary people, as these are not present in a way, you would expect from a series with this focus on democratic representation. The series has its roots in a privileged part of society, and therefore the characters are not as influenced by their minority positions, as you would expect, had they come from a different environment. The L Word: Generation Q is a series that depicts the lives of lesbians and transgender people living in the wealthy part of Los Angeles, which is why they have the surplus to experiment. Overall, the series portrays themes directly attached to the minority positions obtained by the characters, but also shows universal themes, merely represented by a subculture.

    The following thesis examines the use of influencer marketing in a political context focusing on the Danish prime minister Mette Frederiksen’s influencer campaigns during the 2019 election as well as during the COVID-19 pandemic – specifically focusing on campaigns involving the Danish influencers Anna Briand, Alexander Husum and Anders Hemmingsen. The foundation of the thesis is therefore a case study focusing on the concept of political influencer marketing based on empirical findings from the campaigns themselves as well as 8 individual interviews and a focus group interview all with recipients of the campaigns. The theoretical foundation of the thesis’ analysis focuses on Mette Frederiksen’s use of personalization strategies in the aforementioned influencer campaigns with special attention to the three dimensions of personalization put forward by Liesbeth Hermans and Maurice Vergeer (2013). This is supplemented by other theoretical contributions from Ana Inés Langer (2010), Duncan Brown and Nick Hayes (2008), Søren Schultz Hansen (2021), Lisbeth Thorlacius (2020) as well as Peter Van Aelst, Tamir Sheafer and James Stanyer (2012) amongst others.The analysis itself is structured through three different sections. The first part of the analysis focuses on Frederiksen’s use of political influencer marketing during the 2019 election campaign. The second part focuses on the influencer campaigns during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the last analytical part summarizes and discusses the two previous parts with the intent of characterizing the use of political influencer marketing going forward. The structure of the analysis allows for a comparative study showcasing a nuanced use of political influencer marketing during various situations. The thesis lastly discusses the theory of personalization itself and suggests that both the professional and private aspects should coexist in the use of political influencer marketing. This ensures that the politician will utilize the personalization that influencer marketing offers whilst still providing the young audience an informed basis on which to form their own political views.

    This thesis concerns the impact of Covid-19 and governmental restrictions on the Colombian population belonging to the lower socioeconomic classes (‘estratos’ 1-3). By drawing on concepts and ideas from mobility studies, it is shown how in a world made of diverse intersecting mobile systems (Urry, 2007), inequality cannot be separated from mobilities. We are living in a reality of ‘uneven mobilities’ (Sheller, 2016), where the control of individuals on their own (im)mobility is interrelated with their position in society. This thesis illustrates this for the Colombian context by analysing how the socioeconomically lower classes have been affected in a wide range of interrelated dimensions connected to mobilities and inequality during the last years of the pandemic. Based on an analysis of semi-structured interviews with people belonging to the lowest socioeconomic classes and ethnographic field notes, the findings reveal that the participants’ control over their own mobility has been affected on several levels and dimensions. The strongest factor has been the distrust into the government and governmental decisions because this changed how many other factors have been interpretated or reacted to by those partaking in this study. Being convinced that the government would not protect them or take the right decisions for them, they themselves took decisions in favour of what they perceived as their best options. For some this resulted in becoming immobilized, others retook control over their own mobilities and resisted the governmental restrictions.
