    Exploring the financing gap between native born women- and immigrant women-owned firms at the start-up stage: Empirical evidence from Swedish data2013In: International Journal of Gender and Entrepreneurship, ISSN 1756-6266, E-ISSN 1756-6274, Vol. 5, no 2, p. 157-173Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The main purpose of this study is to provide empirical evidence which identifies the impact of ethnicity and other relevant variables on external capital acquisition among Swedish women-owned businesses at start-up. Design/methodology/approach: Several methods have been employed to analyze the sample including a binary logistic regression model. The sample consists of 836 women-owned businesses in southeast Sweden; 97 immigrant-owned, 739 native born-owned. Findings: The results indicate that there are partly significant differences between native women-owned firms and immigrant woman-owned businesses at start-up. Unlike the native-owned firms, the immigrant woman-owned businesses rely more on loans from family members and less on bank loans. Practical implications: The results reveal that age has a positive impact on loans from family members, while the additional job outside one's own business, the amount of the owner's personal start-up capital and firm size positively influenced access to capital from banks. The owners' level of education, previous business experience, the legal form taken by the firm and the industry affiliation conversely played no significant role in explaining the women owners' attitudes toward loans from either friends or the bank. Originality/value: To the authors' knowledge, this study is the first empirical investigation addressing this issue in the Swedish context.

    Gender as a determinant of informal capital in the financing of small firms' start-ups: Swedish data2015In: International Journal of Entrepreneurship and Small Business, ISSN 1476-1297, E-ISSN 1741-8054, Vol. 24, no 2, p. 249-267Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This research explores the differences in informal capital acquisition between female- and male-owned firms in the start-up stage in Sweden. A binary logistic regression model is used to analyse a sample including 836 female- and 1928 male-owned firms in 2008, providing 47,022 observations. The results indicate that the main explanatory variable, gender, is significant in distinguishing between female- and male-owned firms with regards to the use of informal capital in terms of loans from family members. Thus, female-owned firms tend to rely more on loans from family members than male-owned firms. The findings also indicate that one control variable, namely owners previous experience of starting up a company, negatively influences the use of loans from family members as a financing source in the start-up stage. This study is based on a unique and large sample including many different variables compared with previous research. Knowledge on the differences between Swedish female- and male-owned firms in using informal capital in the start-up stage is limited and ambiguous. The presented results contribute to research into small firm financing by adding insight into the relationships between informal capital acquisition, gender, and other relevant variables.

    Beyond Post-productivism: From Rural Policy Discourse To Rural Diversity2014In: European Countryside, ISSN 1803-8417, E-ISSN 1803-8417, Vol. 6, no 4, p. 297-306Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There has been a strong discourse in public policy aiming at transforming rural places from venues of primary production into truly diverse socioeconomic landscapes. Yet conceptualisations of the rural as envisioned in the policy and politics of the ‘new economy’ are often difficult to see materialise on the ground. However, post-productive activity in rural areas has become a major focus for rural studies scholars. This paper investigates the ideas of post-productivism and post-production in existing literature, and argues for a holistic understanding of post-productivism as an idea and political ambition rather than a manifest change of rural economic activity. The purpose of the study is to make clear the division between the related concepts in order to better understand processes of rural change in relation to different geographical contexts. It is argued that post-productivism as a concept stands apart from de facto post-production and should be regarded as part of broader regional development discourses. The paper outlines several important fields in which post-productivism is a necessary component for rural transformation and development. While it is not always easily captured in indicators or empirical studies in rural locations, post-productivism exists at the level of discourse and planning and thus has real effects on the ground. The paper concludes by offering suggestions on how to empirically investigate the concepts of post-production and post-productivism.

    The importance of visitors : attitudes and activities: A study of Luleå archipelago2004Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Turismen i kustlandskap växer fortare än någon annan turismbransch i världen. Den svenska fysiska planeringen har fokuserat på att bevara natur och kultur från att bli exploaterade eftersom kust och skärgård består av känsliga natur- och kulturområden. Turism ska inte skada miljön, men det ska även vara klart att en förstörd natur drabbar besöksnäringen. Turismen är beroende av landskapet för att kunna förbättras och bestå. Planering är en viktig länk mellan turismutveckling och fysisk miljö. Planering som inbegriper geografisk zonering av en turistdestination, leder till att olika sorters landanvändning delas upp. En effektiv planering av ett kustområde kräver kunskap om besökarna och deras attityder eftersom det kan finnas skillnader mellan vad besökarna önskar och den faktiska planeringsstrategin. Utifrån kunskap om besökarna och deras upplevelser samt geografiska spridning i kustområdet, kan olika planeringsmetoder vara ytterligare ett hjälpmedel i turismutveckling för att kommunernas planering ska bli verkningsfull samt för att minska konflikter mellan olika användargrupper. Syftet med rapporten är att kartlägga besökarnas aktiviteter och upplevelser i Luleå skärgård, att fastställa var i området de befann sig under besöket och analysera hur sådan information kan vara användbar i kommunens planering för hållbar turismutveckling. Dessutom diskuteras olika planeringsmetoder (som zonering) i samband med bevarande, turismutveckling och mark- och vattenanvändning i kustlandskap. Avslutningsvis har enkätundersökningen tagit reda på besökarnas åsikter om zonering och restriktioner samt undersökt deras allmänna åsikter om svenska kustlandskap. I samband med detta analyseras även besökarnas uppfattningar om framtida utvecklingar av turism och om områdets mark- och vattenanvändning, som exempelvis vindkraft. Rapporten är på engelska och publicering av undersökningen i Luleå skärgård kommer att ske i ETOUR�s publikationsserie.

    Understanding the visitor: A prerequisite for coastal zone planning2007Licentiate thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Planning for tourism and outdoor recreation in coastal areas could be improved with knowledge of visitors´ attitudes, experiences, activities and geographical dispersion. The purpose of this thesis is to examine the knowledge of visitors in planning for tourism and outdoor recreation. The Luleå archipelago in Northern Sweden was used as a case study.

    Visitor Activities and Attitudes in Coastal Areas: A case study of the Luleå archipelago, Sweden2005Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Out from a questionnaire survey to visitors who stayed in the Luleå archipelago, Sweden during the summer 2003, the purpose of this paper is to examine the visitors� activities, attitudes and experiences together with their geographical dispersion in this coastal area. Furthermore, the paper investigates if the visitors have recognised any changes in the Luleå archipelago and if these are viewed negatively or positively. The survey in the Luleå archipelago will also analyse different aspects of possible conflicts between tourism and other land use in the area. Finally, the visitors� attitudes to Swedish coastal areas in general will be studied according to the purism scale which segments the visitors after their behaviour and attitudes. It is the first time the method of the purism scale (where the questions have been especially adjusted to coastal areas) will be included in a study of Swedish coastal areas.By gathering information about visitors, it becomes less problematic to combine sensitive nature and culture with a sustainable tourism development. E.g. islands that are visited frequently and which have sensitive vegetation could undergo great wear on the natural surroundings if the attendance rate gets too high (Luleå municipality, 2000). Therefore information about visitors is important and should be applied in land-use planning. The municipalities need information such as statistics of the visitors´ attitudes and their geographical dispersion to make progress in their planning and to diminish conflicts between different user groups. Which group of visitors does the municipality want to attract by its tourism development? An effective planning of a coastal area requires good and reliable knowledge about the visitors and their attitudes since there could be differences between what the visitors demand and the actual planning strategy.

    Zoning and opportunity Spectrum Planning in a Discontinuous Environment: Planning for Tourism and Outdoor Recreation in the Luleå Archipelago, Sweden2006Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Zoning is generally used as a planning instrument to handle land use conflicts. In recreation planning in Sweden, zoning systems such as the recreation opportunity spectrum model has been applied in mountain areas. An underlying assumption of the ROS-system is a gradient from the urban to wilderness allowing the planner to provide a spectrum of recreation opportunities. In contrast, the Swedish coastal areas consist of a discontinuous environment which challenges a zoning. Archipelagos are essentially discontinuous with respect to many of the important spatial variables. Zoning in the archipelagos in Sweden has so far followed a zoning logic from physical geography; the assumption being that the gradient from inner, wooded zones to outer treeless would also be a gradient from the more urban or human influenced cultural landscape to a more pristine, �marine wilderness� in the outer. In 2003, a questionnaire survey to visitors was conducted in the Luleå archipelago, Sweden. Based on the results, the study examines the spatialization of the visitor characteristics, the activity patterns etc in relation to the ongoing planning of the area. This paper explores the planning challenges in adapting zoning to cope with recreation and tourism development as well as with the other land and resources uses that municipal comprehensive planning is charged with. Thereby possible conflicts are identified, and the potential of zoning is explored.

    Silence – an article of short supply in outdoor recreation?Handling noise conflicts in Swedish planning2008In: Management for protection and sustainable development. The Fourth International Conference on Monitoring and Management of Visitors Flows in Recreational and Protected Areas.: Montecatini Terme, Italy 14-19 October 2008 Proceedings, 2008, p. 399-403Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Outdoor recreation areas are exposed to several causes of conflict. Many interests, along with different types of recreation activities, are competing in the same area. In these areas, conflicts are handled by spatial planning and by the separation in space of different functions. One source of conflict is noise. The lack of noise-free areas in the Swedish coastal areas has become an amenity problem. Does this make noise an important problem to consider in planning?

     

    An assumption is that the sound environment is relevant for the visitors’ experience; spending time in nature is associated with peace and quiet, where one should not be disturbed. In this study, it will be investigated how silence and noise actually are considered in the Swedish municipal planning. “Silence” is one of the amenity categories reported in the Swedish tourism data base. Is there a discrepancy between the existing municipal planning and the visitors’ opinions, attitudes and experiences?

     

    Furthermore, there will be an analysis of how silence and noise could be handled in spatial planning. One possible method is zoning. By excluding certain outdoor recreation activities from some areas, zoning may handle, or at least reduce, the problem of conflicts. The biosphere reserve concept (where zoning is an important part) will for that reason be discussed as a potential tool. A case study of the Blekinge archipelago, Sweden is the foundation of the study, which data consist of planning documents and questionnaire surveys considering outdoor recreation and nature tourism.

    Nature to place: Rethinking the environmental connectedness perspective2014In: Journal of Environmental Psychology, ISSN 0272-4944, E-ISSN 1522-9610, Vol. 40, p. 198-205Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The environmental connectedness perspective posits that direct encounter with generalized, or non-specific "nature," leads to environmental connectedness and subsequent pro-environmental behavior. This article examines this perspective and proposes a place-based application of the nature encounter-environmental behavior relation. An empirical study using data from a national survey on outdoor recreation and nature-based tourism is presented. Results show a minimal relationship between measures of environmental connectedness and self-reports of environmental behavior. The following examination of the environmental connectedness perspective reveals that environmental connectedness is rooted in a material/objective perspective, neglecting the human domain of perceptions, values, and representations. The environment as "nature" is portrayed as a geographically undefined agent with the inherent power to change human attitudes and behavior. Based on this, the article concludes with a proposed replacement of the elusive concept of nature for the relational concept of place. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

    Evolutionary Economic Geography and Tourism Studies: Extant Studies and Future Research Directions2014In: Tourism Geographies, ISSN 1461-6688, E-ISSN 1470-1340, Vol. 16, no 4, p. 540-545Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents the extant literature on evolutionary economic geography (EEG) and tourism studies and briefly reviews what has been produced thus far. There are two main areas addressed: path dependence (and how to break from a path) and co-evolution (of tourism paths within a given region and of regional paths including tourism). The papers already published on EEG and tourism feature cases from resort communities, mass tourism destinations and rural and peripheral areas with all cases from highly developed countries (Canada, Sweden, Denmark, Italy and Australia). Next, the papers of the special issue are explored and show a broadening of the geographical reach (to include China and Spain) and a move to apply EEG theory as part of a hybrid theoretical framework. Finally, the paper concludes with a call for broader evolutionary approaches in tourism studies beyond strictly business development studies. This ultimately requires the development of EEG measures in line with the goals of sustainable tourism development.

    Abstract [en]

    Denis Davidov and Tatyana Chekalina discuss the trans-boundary cooperation as the factor and an effective tool for overcoming negative aspects of the exclave location of the Kaliningrad region. Authors consider the exclave as the particular case of the border region. Therefore there is an idea that the provisions of the border regions theory, which is better elaborated than the exclave one, could be applied for this case as well.

    Customer-based destination brand equity modelling: The role of destination resources, value-for money and value-in-use2018In: Journal of Travel Research, ISSN 0047-2875, E-ISSN 1552-6763, Vol. 57, no 1, p. 31-51Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study contributes to the development of knowledge on transferring the concept of customer-based brand equity to a tourism destination context. Keller’s (2009) brand equity pyramid is utilized as the comparison framework to reveal similarities but also overlaps, differences and gaps on both the conceptual and measurement level of existing brand equity models for destinations. Particularly, the inner core of the model depicts the complex mechanisms of how destination resources transform into benefits for tourists overlooked by prior research. This study proposes a customer-based brand equity model for destinations, which consists of five dependent constructs, including awareness, loyalty, and three destination brand promise constructs constituting the inner core of the model, namely, destination resources, value-in-use and value-for-money. The model was repeatedly tested for the leading Swedish mountain destination Åre, by using a linear structural equation modelling approach. Findings confirm the path structure of the proposed model.

    Destination brand promise: The core of customer-based brand equity modeling2018In: Tourism Analysis, ISSN 1083-5423, E-ISSN 1943-3999, Vol. 23, no 1, p. 93-107Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The present study contributes to the discussion on transferring the concept of customer-based brand equity (CBBE) to a tourism destination context. The core component of the proposed CBBE model for tourism destinations (CBDBE) considers customers’ evaluation of the destination promise in terms of the transformation of destination resources into value-in-use for tourists. The introduced CBDBE model consists of six interdependent constructs, including awareness, tourists’ perception of functional, tangible and social destination resources, value-in-use disclosing the purpose and benefits of consumption, value-for-money, satisfaction and loyalty. The model was tested for the leading Swedish mountain destination Åre for the summer season by using customer-based survey data and a linear structural equation modelling (SEM) approach. Findings confirm the hypothesized relationships and the hierarchical structure of the proposed model. Managerial implications are discussed and the agenda for future CBDBE research is outlined.

    Cities and regions all over the world are constantly competing in the will for the same goal; an increased accretion. To reach the goal the places have to attract resources from the outside and mobilise the internal resources they already have. Places that are associated with accretion, attractive living environments, or exclusive tourist experiences have a head-start to the places that are associated with out-migration, discontinuation, and social problems. Piteå is a smaller municipality in Norrbotten; a region that struggles with emigration and negative population developments. The purpose with the following thesis is to find out what the municipality and the commercial and industrial life in Piteå does to increase their attractiveness. Which will lead to an increased tourist business, an increased in-migration and establishments of new business corporations? A further examination is about what factors that affect the attractiveness for a city. Another purpose is to see how interactivity between the municipality in Piteå and the commercial and industrial life works. To fulfil the purpose qualitative methods in the shape of interviews with some significant enterprisers and the municipality in Piteå has been used. The result of the study has shown that the interaction between the municipality and the commercial and industrial life in Piteå is in working order, but the accessibility to and from the city with goods traffic is limited at the same time as passenger traffic is nonexistent. Piteå is a strong in arranging events and in the present situation big investments in the energy field is made, which opens up for big opportunities in the future.

    Business intelligence for destinations: Creating knowledge from social media2017In: Advances in social media for travel, tourism and hospitality: new perspectives, practice and cases / [ed] M. Sigala,U. Gretzel and E. Christou, Routledge, 2017, p. 290-310Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Due to an increasing number of online reviews in social media sites it has become vital for destinations, and businesses alike, to capture and regularly analyse these reviews to gain valuable new knowledge as input to managerial decision support. However, in practice, the possibility to manually extract and analyse the vast amount of available online reviews is fairly limited. Thus, the focus of this chapter is to highlight how knowledge from social media is utilized in the prototypically implemented destination management information system, DMIS-Åre. In order to extract and analyse user generated content from the social media platforms TripAdvisor.comand Booking.com a recently validated framework applying machine learning methods and a dictionary-based approach is presented.

    Re-envisioning community-based heritage tourism in the old city of Nazareth2016In: Journal of Heritage Tourism, ISSN 1743-873X, E-ISSN 1747-6631, Vol. 11, p. 105-125Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study specifically examines the potential for heritage tourism development topromote cross-cultural dialog in the historic old city of Nazareth (Israel). The paperfocuses on a case study of a small-scale heritage tourism venture that seeksto influence tourism development in Nazareth’s old city. This is an exploratorycase study that uses qualitative research methods including extensive participantobservation and in-depth interviews with the venture’s senior management group andselected employees. Study findings indicate a model of the relationship betweencommunity-based tourism development, heritage, and peace-building in a city thathas experienced a wide range of cross-cultural conflicts. This model represents analternative view to the notion that heritage serves to enhance differences anddissonance between different cultural groups. In contrast, findings from this studysuggest that heritage in the form of tourism can help create shared interests betweendifferent communities in settings characterized by cross-cultural conflict.

    Coping with reintermediation: The case of SMHEs2016In: Information Technology & Tourism, ISSN 1098-3058, E-ISSN 1943-4294, Vol. 16, no 4, p. 375-392Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The structure of hospitality distribution has experienced profound changeswithin the last few decades. With the evolution and spread of internet, a substantialnumber of consumers started to use electronic channels for hotel bookings.This has resulted in disintermediation of traditional offline travel agencies. Yet, ithas also initiated a new type of middleman to emerge and grow. Much powerfulthan its former version, online travel agencies (OTAs) bring about some benefits butalso challenges particularly for small and medium sized independent hotels(SMHEs). This paper focuses on the difficulties SMHEs face during this transformation.The characteristics of SMHEs, the evolution of channels and the role ofOTAs were discussed based on a qualitative study. 22 SMHE managers wereinterviewed about their perceptions of OTAs and challenges with reintermediation.Based on the data the challenges were grouped under; complexity, dependency,unfair competition and commodification. Solutions to complications of reintermediationfor SMHEs and directions for future research are suggested

    Det goda värdskapet: en fall studie på Västerås2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Västerås är en stad som tidigare har förknippats med gurkor och industrier då ASEA, nuvarande ABB etablerades i Västerås 1883. Staden är idag relativt okänd för externa gäster, det är något som Västerås marknadsföringsorgan Västerås & Co vill ändra på. Arbetets syfte är att undersöka vad en värdskapssatsning kan ge för effekter på turismen och näringslivet i Västerås samt undersöka möjligheten att värdskapscertifiera de olika verksamheterna i Västerås. Litteraturstudier, intervjuer samt deltagande observationer har använts som metod. Teoriavsnittet tar upp värdskapsbegreppet samt samarbeten inom organisationen för att sedan kunna jämföras med resultatet från intervjuerna och de deltagande observationerna. Av empirin framkommer det att en gemensam syn på innebörden av värdskap är viktigt för att värdskapsarbetet ska bli framgångsrikt. De anser även att värdskapet är en inställningsfråga så det är upp till var och en att bjuda på ett gott värdskap. Samtliga är positiva till en värdskapscertifiering, dock är inte alla överens om hur det ska gå till och vilka som ska delta. I Diskussionsavsnittet diskuteras vad en eventuell värdskapscertifiering rent praktiskt skulle kunna innehålla.
