Sammanfattning

ABSTRACT: The act of begging has been a provocative phenomenon almost regardless of what time period is studied, although, hypothetically for different reasons. In Sweden at present, begging is again a topic of heated debate, political positioning and legal struggles, just as it seems to have been as early as the in 17th century and repeatedly since then. The present paper includes i) an historic overview of the regulation of begging in Sweden 1600-1960, ii) a description of modern (1970-2019) legal responses leading up to new case law on begging from the Supreme Administrative Court. The chronological description of legal responses to begging indicates that there is a strong trajectory through history where law points out who is deserving (always a narrow personal scope), where responsibility lies (always local) and, often, practical or formal restrictions on mobility. While law at large seems to confirm this order of things in 2019, the moral agreement on its righteousness is contested.
