Abstract [sv]

Kapitlets syfte är att presentera hur ett ramverk av intersektionell riskteori kan bidra till en djupare förståelse av hur risk sammanflätas med rådande maktstrukturer och därför ofta tenderar att reproducera normer om kön, etnicitet och klass. Intersektionell riskteori innebär att risk och krisforskning sammanförs med begrepp och analysmetoder utvecklade inom det genusvetenskapliga kunskapsfältet, inte minst intersektionalitet. Genom att införliva intersektionalitet i riskteori kan vi klargöra hur riskkonfigurationer skapar nya ojämlikheter, medan gamla strukturer förblir oförändrade. I ramverket ses risk som en lins genom vilken maktrelationer, och deras samverkan, kan studeras. En sådan analys är viktig då risker och kriser också påverkar samhället och människors sociala relationer.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med detta kapitel är att analysera och diskutera de processer genom vilka krishanteringen verkar och de styrningsrelationer som krishanteringsretoriken grundas i och genererar. Till vår hjälp tar vi Dorothy Smiths institutionella etnografi och kritisk riskteori. Fallet vi utgår från är en utvärdering som vi författare gjorde av Myndighetens för samhällsskydd och beredskaps insatser under hösten 2015 när ett ovanligt stort antal personer från andra länder sökte asyl i Sverige.

Abstract [en]

At the end of March 2020, international media present Swedish management of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic as soft and irresponsible. Thus, Sweden, which is usually regarded as exceptionally risk averse and cautious, has chosen an unexpected risk management approach. The aim of this article is to reflect on how the Swedish government has managed the Covid-19 pandemic until early April 2020 from two theoretical perspectives, the risk society thesis and governmentality theory. We make a brief review of how previous pandemics have been managed compared to Covid-19 and try to understand the consequences of the Swedish handling of present pandemic with a particular focus on the governance of the pandemic and the exercise of power rather than definite risk management strategies during the pandemic.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien har varit att  skapa kunskap om hur användarna av Östersunds kommuns integrationsinsatser för nyanlända upplevs av användarna själva. Eftersom insatserna från integrationsservice varierar beroende på hur den nyanlända har kommit till kommunen har urvalet av informanter skett utifrån kategorierna: anläggningsboende (ABO), eget boende (EBO), anhöriginvandrad eller kvotflykting. Avsikten med studien är att dess resultat ska kunna användas för att utveckla integrationsservice verksamhet. Östersunds kommun har valt att organisera en del av integrationsarbetet med nyanlända genom integrationsservice.  Det innebär att integrationsservice har ett särskilt ansvar för mottagandet av nyanlända kommunplacerade flyktingar som kommit genom anvisning från Migrationsverkets anläggningsboende (ABO) eller som kvotflykting.

Abstract [en]

Drawing from the experiences gained from a research project focusing on gender-based violence (GBV) in rural Sweden, this paper focuses on how government policies aimed at addressing GBV against girls and young women are enacted, translated and contested at the regional and local level. In previous studies the regional level is seldom focused on, and we know very little of the connection between the local and regional levels. The paper is based on analysis of interviews with key policy actors at the regional and local levels, including school personnel. Departing from policy enactment combined with institutional ethnography, the paper explores how policies on GBV are translated into prevention activities, but also how the different actors enact the policy in relation to the institutional setting and professional role. The analysis also shows how the enactment is entangled in understandings of gender, race, equality and traditions. The analysis makes the different power relations visible, and the production of power in policy is better understood, as it highlights how some dimensions are given priority in relation to others.

Abstract [en]

This presentation focuses on volunteers and idea-based organizations’ involvement in refugee reception in rural areas. In our presentation, we will discuss how refugee reception is done in relation to gender, place and the dismantling of welfare. The study is based on interviews with seven BLOCK II g 100 volunteers and employees in two rural towns in northern Sweden. Our study shows that the social support to refugees in the studied towns seems to rest much on (older) women’s hospitality work and church organisations. In these small cities, a few organisations organize and engage in a broad spectrum of activities. The volunteers use their private networks as well as organized networks for organizing the activities. The women we interviewed seem to have a particular interest in engaging with female refugees in traditionally female practices such as baking and sewing invoking particular emotional motives and racialized scripts of refugee women in need of specific caring practices.

Abstract [en]

The article explores the complex patterns of inequality in Sweden from an intersectional standpoint by developing a methodological strategy using data from quantitative national survey material. Intersectionality stands in contrast to the inductive and hypothesis-testing approaches, which tend to reproduce categories as having an essential and stable meaning. It is generally acknowledged that quantitative approaches to intersectionality are rare or in development. Quantitative analyses tend to disregard some of the theoretical cornerstones of intersectionality: in particular, the relational and fluid character of categories. This may be why intersectionality researchers tend to reject quantitative approaches altogether. To address this dilemma, Multiple Correspondence Analysis (MCA) is applied as a means of linking objective structures to subjective experiences, and it is argued that this methodology is well suited to detecting and capturing social spaces of privilege and oppression. The result shows that this kind of quantitative approach to intersectional analysis can facilitate the exploration of inequalities and positions of privilege across populations and globally at particular times, as well as contributing to ontological and epistemological perspectives on intersectionality. By exploring what the category is said to describe and how these parts relate to other sub-categories, especially about time and place settings and their intersections, we were able to identify relationships between structures of oppression and subjective experiences at a particular time and in a particular place, which is important in understanding both inequalities and positions of privilege. These analyses not only illuminate the hegemonic structures of power that create subordinated and privileged positions but also help us to theorize the non-linear and stochastic relations between and within these positions. This methodological advance also has important implications for social policy.

Abstract [en]

The social-democratic-inspired "Nordic model", with its agenda for gender equality, has been an important example for the development of political interventions to transform society but at the same time, it has functioned as an emerging gender normalising and stabilising structure. In the last decade it has also become the focus of antigender movements and ethno-nationalistic parties both as emblematic for the Nordic nations as well as a threat that must be destroyed to save the nation. This issue will elaborate further on gender equality as a node, a floating signifier in powerful and often contradictory discourses. We are inspired by scholarships of hope in a dialogue with articles that search for realistic utopias that might be considered to be "beyond gender equality". The included articles engage with the messiness and crossroads of gender equality in relation to the work-line, territories, neo-liberalism, religion, the crisis of solidarity and the success of anti-genderism agenda.
