    Following Routines: A Challenge in Cross-Sectorial Collaboration2016In: Journal of Contingencies and Crisis Management, ISSN 0966-0879, E-ISSN 1468-5973, Vol. 24, no 1, p. 36-45Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to examine how personnel from three different organizations

    create meaning and intend to act in a potentially dangerous situation.The article reports

    an experiment depicting a bomb at an elderly care center and the participants were to

    describe the situation and decide how to act.The participants were personnel from the

    police, rescue services and an elderly care centre.The findings show that participants had

    different types of understanding of the situation and how to act.The personnel at the

    elderly care centre were confused by the situation but they were familiar with their work

    routines.The emergency organizations were familiar with the situation and the task, but

    not with the work routines.

    Facebook and Twitter in Crisis Communication: A Comparative Study of Crisis Communication Professionals and Citizens2016In: Journal of Contingencies and Crisis Management, ISSN 0966-0879, E-ISSN 1468-5973, Vol. 24, no 4, p. 198-208Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This mixed-methods study presents a comparative analysis of the use and perceived usefulness of Facebook and Twitter, among Swedish citizens and crisis communication professionals, as crisis communication tools and information sources. The use and perceived usefulness of Facebook and Twitter are not congruent and consistent between the two different groups, according to the overall study. Communication professionals, for example, report higher levels of perceived usefulness regarding Facebook's potential as a crisis communication tool than do the citizens. Taken together, the results show that researchers (within social media and crisis communication) and crisis managers both need to deal with the fact that social media is not a homogenous phenomenon with a single coherent role in crisis management and communication research and practice.

    Coping with blackouts: A practice theory approach to household preparedness2018In: Journal of Contingencies and Crisis Management, ISSN 0966-0879, E-ISSN 1468-5973, Vol. 26, no 2, p. 272-282Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article focuses on how rural households cope with blackouts caused by winter storms. We approach household preparedness using a practice theory perspective, and argue that preparedness is mundanely preformed as part of everyday practices. The data material consists of at home visits to 14 households from Norway and Sweden. The results demonstrate that households cope with blackouts by activating and mobilising competences, meanings and materials belonging to different practices, and that this is an ongoing process to ensure the continuation of everyday life during disruption. The article concludes by arguing for the need to bring forward studies on informal preparedness activities, in a research field where household preparedness tends to be framed using a top-down perspective on crisis management.

    At the external boundary of a disaster response operation: The dynamics of volunteer inclusion2018In: Journal of Contingencies and Crisis Management, ISSN 0966-0879, E-ISSN 1468-5973, Vol. 26, no 4, p. 519-529Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the present article, practices of inclusion of different types of volunteers in the response to a large-scale forest fire in Sweden are studied. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with three types of voluntary actors. The volunteers were organized to different degrees, from members of organizations and participants in emergent groups to organizationally unaffiliated individuals. Organized volunteers were the most easily included, particularly if they were members of voluntary emergency organizations. It was difficult for volunteers lacking relevant organizational affiliation to be included. Disaster response operations are dynamic, conditions change over time, and tensions between different modes, degrees, and levels of inclusion may arise. However, irrespective of changing conditions, practices of inclusion of highly organized volunteers work best.

    Organization and Decision-Making in Enforced Networks: The River Groups in Northern Sweden2017In: Journal of Contingencies and Crisis Management, ISSN 0966-0879, E-ISSN 1468-5973, Vol. 25, no 4, p. 313-325Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the Swedish experience of network governance in managing flooding and high water flows. The aim was to study the regional responsibility for coordinating risk awareness and risk analysis in terms of information, prevention and actions. The focus was on differences between the Swedish river groups from the coordinators perspective, including their organization and approaches to decision-making. The conclusions reached here are based on interviews with the coordinators of county administrative boards. We argue that the absence of central guidelines in the organization of the river groups and the fact that they are enforced by the government rather than spontaneously formed have had implications for the networks' effectiveness and for exchanges of experience among the networks.

    Organizational crisis preparedness in heterogeneous societies: The OCPH model2011In: Journal of Contingencies and Crisis Management, ISSN 0966-0879, E-ISSN 1468-5973, Vol. 19, no 4, p. 215-226Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The populations of European societies are heterogeneous and a crucial part of effective crisis preparedness is to customize contingency planning and crisis communication to these populations. The aim of this study is therefore to develop a theoretically based model of organizations' crisis preparedness in heterogeneous societies. Through theoretical and empirical analyses the model for 'Organizational Crisis Preparedness in Heterogeneous societies', the OCPH model, is developed. The model provides a theoretical foundation for the understanding of organizational crisis preparedness and also has practical implications: It offers a tool with which to develop organizational contingency planning further. For authorities that supervise municipalities or other local authorities, the OCPH model can be used to analyse and evaluate organizations. © 2011 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.

    Unrecognized crisis management-Normalizing everyday work: The work practice of crisis management in a refugee situation2018In: Journal of Contingencies and Crisis Management, ISSN 0966-0879, E-ISSN 1468-5973, Vol. 26, no 2, p. 225-236Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to examine the practices of crisis management adopted by operative staff when facing a crisis situation in their workplace. This research is based on interviews with personnel from social services and staff from homes for unaccompanied youth. The interviewees asked respondents about their actions in caring for young refugees during the refugee situation. The results are structured around three themes: everyday practices, crisis work, and the process of normalization. Three practices for handling the situation-improvisation, prioritization, and creating alternatives-served as crisis management-as-practice. The staff members' everyday practice for solving problems became the basic method employed during the crisis to normalize everyday work.

    Disability and Vulnerability: Interpretations of Risk in Everyday Life2016In: Journal of Contingencies and Crisis Management, ISSN 0966-0879, E-ISSN 1468-5973, Vol. 24, no 4, p. 244-252Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Definitions and assessments of social vulnerability are commonly based on systemic relations and processes on a macro level. There is a danger of ascribing vulnerability to someone, regardless of their individual circumstances and personal abilities, thus micro-level information regarding everyday life is also needed. Experiences of risk and attitudes towards vulnerability were explored in five group interviews with a total of 27 disabled individuals. In the contexts of instrumental aids, bodily endurance, and external causes, vulnerability was found to be a ubiquitous primer in everyday decision-making regarding activity attendance and displaying disabilities. The disabled individual’s interpretative framework for risk and vulnerability is shaped by objectifying his / her own body, and by being accustomed to everything taking a long time. The interpretative framework helps in decision-making and in managing any ‘contextual inertia’ involved in stressful situations. By showing how everyday life, individual conditions, and social circumstances are all strictly interconnected, the importance of adapting assessments of vulnerability to the type of study and analysis is highlighted.
