    Lived biographies of changing integration regimes: Migrant narratives ofinstitutional support and labor market in/exclusion in Sweden2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to explore the interconnection between lived biographies and changing integration policies through migrant narratives on institutional support and labor market experiences. The approach applied in this study allows us to pay particular attention to the dynamic character of integration and to make links between personal, organizational and policy domains, analyzing the shifted integration regimes from the standpoint of migrants. The Swedish politics of integration has during the last year’s undergone vast changes and in 2010, the largest change in the Swedish history of integration policies was performed (etableringsreformen) which meant an increasingly emphasized focus on employment and workfare before welfare and the responsibility for new migrants was transferred from the municipalities to the employment service. As a consequence the rhetoric of integration in Sweden also changed, from what was in municipalities talked about as introduction, to what is now talked about as reception and establishment. By combining immigrants’ subjective views and evaluations with the trajectories of their work biographies, we will discuss changing integration regimes as ‘lived experiences’ of individuals who are subjected to and employed in different occupations that the different integration regimes produces.

    Lived Experiences of Changing Integration Policies:: Immigrant Narratives of Institutional Support and Labour Market Inclusion/Exclusion in Sweden2018In: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, ISSN 1799-649X, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 8, no 1, p. 25-34Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study aims to map, locate and make visible the everyday experiences of newly arrived immigrants in government-sponsored integration activities and to trace how these experiences are linked to changes in policy. The study pays particular attention to the dynamic nature of integration and draws links between personal, organisational and policy domains while analysing shifting integration policies from the standpoint of immigrants. Swedish integration policy has undergone vast changes during recent years as the government implements one of the largest changes in Swedish history, beginning in 2010. With this came an emphasis on employment and workfare over welfare. Consequently, the rhetoric of integration in Sweden also changed from what in municipalities was called an introduction to a sense of establishment. By examining the subjective views of immigrants, we discuss the lived experiences of individuals who are subjected to and employed in different occupations due to various integration regimes.

    A room of our own:  A collective biography of an exercise in interdisciplinary feminism.2011In: Normalization and “outsiderhood”: Feminist Readings of a Neoliberal Welfare State. / [ed] Siv Fahlgren, Anders Johansson & Diana Mulinari, UAE: Bentham eBooks, 2011, p. 106-116Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract: The interdisciplinary research project “Challenging gender” was a joint effort by members of two Swedish universities. Researchers were grouped by five different themes, while together they became “the Arena”. The present authors’ theme focused on normalization processes, and included gender researchers from literary studies, sociology, social work, and public health studies. The purpose of this chapter is to explore what it is to challenge normalization processes as researchers; the context is interdisciplinary gender research under a neo-liberal regime. To deepen their understanding of what the process has occasioned, the researchers used “collective biography”, a memory-work method developed by Bronwyn Davies, who led the researchers’ work of writing down their memories prompted by experience of striations and of lines of flight. In this chapter the memories so produced are discussed in the light of Virginia Woolf’s A room of one’s own.  Thanks to the financial resources the project was able to muster, we were able to create the kind of collective “room” where we could take the opportunity to be creative and challenge structural patterns – but equally where we could give vent to our frustration at these same patterns. Our memories seemed to waver between fragile but uplifting flashes of optimism and a feeling that nothing would work, and not only just the one or the other – always somewhere in between. Our theoretical understanding of normality grew out of that most dangerous of ideas: that we should open our minds to the unpredictable, the non-normalizing, to whatever could be different

    Re-assembling ’the normal’ in Neo-liberal times : Tracing (new) closures of ‘normality’ in the age of Risk2013In: ESA 2013 Torino: Crisis, critique and change, 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The meaning of 'the normal' tends to slidefrom the valued ideal, to the ordinary (orstatistically normal), which is constituted asthe opposite of deficiency, deviation or socialproblem. Between these poles are limitlesspossible shifts in meaning. The ordinary shiftseasily from something neutral (common,perhaps even dull), to something desirable orideal when it is applied in social situations.Thus the normalization processes are neitherinnocent nor value free. The notion of "being atrisk" is central to the doing of normality incontemporary society. By formulating orcreating hazards in a community, 'the normal'becomes re-assembled as not being "at risk",an assemblage that is becoming narrower andmore difficult to uphold. By means of thenotion of risk, power reaches all aspects of lifethrough subjective internalization andnormalization, but also draws the boundariesbetween those belonging and needs to besafeguarded against risk, and those whose lifeis expendable. We argue that who becomescategorized as being "at risk" can tell us agreat deal about who qualify as a "normal"citizen, and how this intersect with gender,class, age, and race/ethnicity. Drawing onpolicy related documents concerning health,unemployment, education and integration ouraim of this paper is to explore the doings of"risk" and its joint processes of normalizationin terms of gender, ethnicity, age/generationand class-based inequality and discriminationas well as inclusions and privileges within thecontext of the Swedish welfare state.

    Having Your Cake and Eating It?: The “Painful Cake” Incident of 2012 Examined2015In: Konsthistorisk Tidskrift, ISSN 0023-3609, E-ISSN 1651-2294, Vol. 84, no 1, p. 55-70Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    On the 15th of April, 2012, The Modern Museum (Modernamuseet) in Stockholm celebrated the World Art Day by having a reception with the Swedish cultural minister present, at which an artwork in the form of a cake made in the likeness of the body of a caricatured black woman was served, cut up and eaten, while the artist, masked as the cakes head, screamed. This conceptual, relational, and contextualizing artwork, which leads to a much heated debate in Sweden and which was also internationally picked up on, was made by the explicitly anti-racist artist Makode Linde. In this article, we explore the problem of this event in terms of its sociocultural significance. How did we react upon the drama that we were following from a distance? What did it make us see? What questions did the incident raise about the Swedish society of today? These are examples of the questions we as gender researchers working in Sweden will discuss in the form of a triptych. We use the triptych metaphor as a tool for opening dialogue. By opening its panels it becomes possible to decommodify the single image of the artwork and make relations between agents traceable, visible, and readable.

    Utmaningar: feminismens (o)möjlighet under nyliberalismen2016Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    När individen på en marknad blivit den alltigenom dominerande modellen för att organisera samhällen och organisationer har det också påverkat hur en ser på betydelsen av kön. Den här boken utforskar hur normalisering går till under nyliberalism, hur det görs på sätt som både utmanar feministiska perspektiv och kan utmanas av feministiska läsningar. Om vi alla i nyliberal anda sägs göra fria, individualistiska val kring alla frågor i våra liv, val som var och en av oss själva samtidigt står ansvariga för, blir en feministisk kritisk position svår att se. Måste vi då kunna tänka i sociala kollektiv för att komma förbi föreställningar om och erfarenheter av ett privatiserat och personligt förtryck, förenklingar och individuell moralism? Så ställer boken frågor om feminismens (o)möjlighet under nyliberalism. Boken avslutas med att skissa möjliga feministiska positioner och strategier för förändring, för att slutligen visionärt diskutera vad ett feministiskt samhälle skulle kunna vara.

    Resisting 'overing'- Teaching and researching Gender studies in Sweden2016In: Women's Studies International Forum, ISSN 0277-5395, Vol. 54, p. 119-128Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this paper is to raise and explore some of the challenges we as gender scholars have experienced in Sweden today in what could be conceptualized as 'overed' academic landscapes. Our argument is framed by Sara Ahmed's (2012) statement that the very idea that we are 'over race' is how racism is reproduced where it also has to be emphasized that the notion of being 'over race' needs to be understood as intertwined with being over gender. With autobiographical methods, we take leverage in a problematization of gender studies as 'a room of our own' and discuss related themes in academe such as the paradox of gender studies as a perspective and/or a discipline, pluralism and the academic institutional division of labour, feminism and neoliberal New Public Management, collaborative interdisciplinary work in audit cultures. The paper concludes with a discussion about resisting 'overing' through the conflicted position of the feminist scholar.

    Posing the problems of –e,: eParticipation in everyday life2011In: IADIS International Conference / [ed] Piet Kommers, 2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

     

    A lot of research into different aspects of modern society, and our ability to participate in its becoming, is today carrying the prefix of “e”, for example eSociety and eParticipation. “e” is though often treated as a fixed category rarely problemized. In this paper we want to highlight some of the implications of such a treatment of “e” and suggest a different analytical approach in order to analyse how “e” are intertwined with other social, cultural and economic structures. We propose a study that goes beyond the arranged, the established, the expected, and the wanted. To analyse eParticipation from the viewpoint of everyday life in combination with a power analysis of the discourse surrounding it offers both theoretical and methodological innovation in understanding a today widespread idea and could as such contribute to widening the dimensions acknowledged in relation to the concept.

    Studying the intersections of rurality, gender and violence against girls and young women:: An urgent matter in both the Global North and the Global South2015In: Being young in a neoliberal time: Transnational perspectives on challenges and possibilities for resistance and social change / [ed] Katja Gillander Gådin and Claudia Mitchell, Sundsvall: Mid Sweden University , 2015, p. 109-120Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    INTRODUCTION

    Violence against girls and women is a global problem, not only for the victim herself, but also for society in general (Garcia-Moreno, 2002). In the case of women with children, violence is also a problem for these children. A multi-country study on violence against women in 15 sites and 10 different countries, mainly low-income, shows that there are wide variations in prevalence between and among settings (World Health Organization, 2005). The differences were not only between countries but also between rural and urban areas within a country, with overall levels of violence against women consistently higher in rural than in urban settings. This means that we need to take space and place into account in studies of violence against girls and women. To date, the links between place and sexual violence against girls and women is an understudied area. Indeed, as Sandberg (2013) notes, the study of intimate partner violence and other forms of sexual violence in rural settings, in particular, may in fact be a blind spot in intersectional research.She calls fora consideration of how place may intersect with such constructs as class, ethnicity, race, gender, and sexuality. To this list we would add age, with the idea that addressing violence against girls and young women is a particularly critical concern in relation to ensuring safety and security for a new generation. The urban condition and life in the city as studied in relation to migration, housing, social supports, and violence itself (including sexual violence) is typically taken up in research that ranges from a focus on townships and informal settlements in the Global South through to thestudy of urban sites in the Global North. However, while the trend for people to live in urban spaces is increasing, this does not mean that there are no social issues that need to be addressed in rural settings; in the context of declining resources and state provisioning, rural life presents its own challenges. There is also a discursive construction of the rural areas that is characterized by higher rates of sick leave, higher unemployment, and the migration of young people away from the area. Added to this is the perception that rurality does not contribute to the economic development of the country (Nyhlén, 2013, Eriksson, 2008). This way of describing the rural can be regarded as an act of othering in that it positions rurality as the other in relation to the urban/center. In this way center and periphery are somehow interdependently constructed. Urbanization itself is built on the premise that resources are taken from the periphery and used in the center (Andersson, Ek & Molina 2008).We stress the importance of asking questions about what it means to study rurality and about how we can create research that goes beyond images of a declining rurality, not forgetting in this process, to ask questions about how rurality is gendered. The purpose, then, of this chapter is to address the necessity of understanding violence against young girls and women by theorizing the relationships between and among place, gender, and violence, particularly in relation to rurality. We do this by first contextualizing our arguments, focusing on three country contexts—Canada, South Africa, and Sweden. We then address three particularly important areas: (1) place-based gender and ethnic regimes, (2) rural vulnerabilities, and (3) local policy enactment.

    "e" i retorik och praktik.: Elektronisk förvaltning i översättning.2009Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The overall purpose of this study is to contribute to the discussion of eGovernment implementation by making the implicit organisational micro dynamic processes involved in the framing and implementation of eGovernment explicit. I want to highlight the important process trough which eGovernment is framed and translated by organisational members and in what way it effects different divisions of practice. To do so, two different analytical aspects of organisational life, the rhetoric of management and the reality of work practices are used as a theoretical context for analysing some implications of eGovernment implementation. These analytical dimensions of organisational life are used to discuss a case study looking at the implementation of eGovernment in a local Swedish municipality.

     

    The main contribution of this thesis is a theorisation of how to understand the organisational micro dynamic processes involved in the implementation of eGovernment in public administration. New insights could be gained, for researchers and practioners, by analysing the transformation of practice as an ongoing process characterised by micro-political translation processes involving actors as well as actions and meanings in both rhetoric and practice.

    eGovernmentality: on Electronic Administration in Local Government2009In: Electronic Journal of e-Government, ISSN 1479-439X, E-ISSN 1479-439X, Vol. 7, no 1, p. 55-64Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As a consequence of the advance of information technology into the realm of public administration, we are now faced with a potential increase in efficiency of a scope and power not previously seen. The intentional use of information technology to modernise the public sector goes internationally by the name of e-Government. While e-Government’s greatest impact thus far has been to promote customer satisfaction, its guiding spirit is more ambitious, with the fundamental reorganisation of the entire public sector in its sights. The overall purpose of this paper is to contribute to the understanding of how public administration at a local authority level adapts to impending e-Government by considering the discourses that are manifested and how they are used to understand and legitimise electronic administration. The present study uses critical discourse analysis to shed light on those discursive orders that are revealed in the course of deliberations on electronic administration at the local government level. On the one hand, it is possible to see electronic administration as a refinement - and a reform - of a bureaucracy’s techniques. On the other hand, it is equally possible to view it in the light of free market ideology.

    Monotonized administrators and personalized bureaucrats in the everyday practice of e-government: ideal typical occupations and processes of closure and stabilization in a Swedish municipality2010In: Transforming Government: People, Process and Policy, ISSN 1750-6166, E-ISSN 1750-6174, Vol. 4, no 4, p. 322-337Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

     

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to analyse everyday practices in e-government from a labour perspective in order to understand how administrative rationalization and citizen service become connected in the organizational restructuring of the labour process, namely job codification and specification and rule observation.

    Design/methodology/approach – The analysis applies an organizational e-government implementation perspective and labour process theory to an analysis of a Swedish municipality's implementation of e-government, using both qualitative and quantitative data.

    Findings – The main finding is the formulation of two distinct types of ideal employee – “monotonized administrators” and “personalized bureaucrats” – who carry e-government work in different directions according to administrative rationalization and the service offered citizens.

    Originality/value – The paper extends our knowledge of everyday practices in e-government from a labour perspective. It offers practitioners as well as researchers new insights by analysing the transformation of practice as an ongoing process, characterized by micro-political translation processes amongst actors, actions, and meanings in both rhetoric and practice.

    In the last decade the implementation of computerized technology and advanced information systems in public administration has gathered speed. The purpose of this article is to explore the ways in which these changes might be gendered by analysing different narratives of digitalization and organizational change in public administration. The empirical findings indicate that resistance to information and communication technology is explained away by managers as reflecting women's low computer maturity, while the narratives of the case-workers themselves reflect their resistance to deskilling and simplified work specifications, as well as their experience of a shift in the work object — from working with human beings to working with electronic information. The findings indicate that the increased use of information technology genders resistance to degradation as a feminized fear of technology and low computer maturity.

    The rhetoric of e-government management and the reality of e-government work: the swedish action plan for e-government considered2009In: International Journal of Public Information Systems, ISSN 1653-4360, no 2, p. 135-146Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article two different analytical aspects of organisational life, the rhetoric of management and the reality of work are used as a context for discussing some implications of the Swedish action plan for eGovernment. Through the lens of these dimensions it becomes obvious that the invisible values within the Swedish action plan for eGovernment are embedded in the rhetoric of management and visible in the reality of work.

    Public e-services from inside: A case study on technology's influence on work conditions in a government agency2013In: International Journal of Public Sector Management, ISSN 0951-3558, E-ISSN 1758-6666, Vol. 26, no 6, p. 455-468Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to discuss the consequences of citizens' increased use of public e-services for agency employees' work situation. Design/methodology/approach: In order to accomplish the purpose of the paper the authors focus on the way in which the increased use of public e-services also implies internal process and routine changes in public administration. The authors analyze work conditions for case officers at a government agency in Sweden by applying occupational ideal types to identify the specific work conditions in the studied case. The case study is based on qualitative data collected with a back office perspective. Findings: The findings indicate a new hybrid organization where the increased use of e-services challenges earlier demands for competence. The transformation of e-government has implications for job codification, rule observation, job specification, and interaction with the general public. Originality/value: The paper extends the knowledge on how the increased use of public e-services affects back-office work conditions, with an increased high level of complexity in work content, but with low level of work autonomy. It argues that studying back-office work conditions is an important management issue in public administration research as well as practice. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.

    Multi-channel service management in Public Sector: Three interpretative frames illustrating e-government and work practice in a swedish state agency.2014In: Electronic Journal of e-Government, ISSN 1479-439X, E-ISSN 1479-439X, Vol. 12, no 1, p. 112-125Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In order to deliver services to citizens, public sector agencies of today offer various types of channels for interaction. In this article we aim to develop an understanding of the reciprocal relation between multi‑channel services and work prac tice. By showing how actors at different organizational levels in an agency differ in their interpretation of multi‑channel services we have generated knowledge that is essential in multi‑channel strategy formulation. The study illustrates an example of a n agency that works actively and in a mature way with e‑government and e‑services. This qualitative case study illustrates that the top level management, middle management and the case officers need to confront and discuss their understanding of e‑governm ent and their work practice in order to reach a situation where strategies actually are influencing daily work more explicitly. An important aspect is the decision to adopt an internal or external perspective on multi‑channel service management. The resul t of this decision might be to view multi‑channel service management as a way of reaching either internal agency efficiency or external citizen benefits.

    Mobilizing Gender Research Challenges and Strategies2013Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this newest volume in the FGV's series of working papers, we present our current research strategy 2013-2015 together with a broad range of examples from the research being carried out within the different research area that the strategy is defining. The research environment at the FGV is characterized by intellectual curiosity both in terms of our own research as well that of others. Our approach is constructively critical, always applied in an open, welcoming, and inclusive spirit, since it is our firm belief that creative research environments require room for diversity. The multidisciplinary research at the FGV currently falls into three major research areas: Gender and normalization in neo-liberal times; A lifetime of gendered cultures; and Gender and working conditions. One joint interest for all three areas is to explore gendered institutional practices and discourses, and new types of techniques of governing during the restructuring of the Swedish welfare state in an advanced liberal context.  Since FGV:s mission is to mobilize and promote gender studies in all the diverse forms that it is practiced at Mid Sweden University the proposition and the contributions to this publication are by necessity varied. We have contributions from fields such as gender studies, literary studies, sociology, geography, ethnography, and public health.

    Gamla mönster och nya utmaningar: Kartläggning av kvinnors och mäns livs- och arbetsvillkor i Jämtlands och Västernorrlands Län2011Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna rapport visar att såväl Jämtland som Västernorrland har en könssegregerad

    arbetsmarknad. Detta gäller både den vertikala könssegregeringen, d.v.s. att män i

    större utsträckning innehar chefsposter, och den horisontella könssegregeringen, d.v.s.

    att större delen av arbetsmarknaderna i Västernorrland och Jämtland utgörs av yrken

    som i huvudsak innehas av antingen män eller kvinnor. Även i sociala sfären återfinns ett

    ojämlikt förhållande mellan män och kvinnor. Kvinnor tar ut en mycket större del av

    föräldraförsäkringen och är sjukskrivna i en större utsträckning än män. Kvinnor är också

    i regel mer utbildade än män men har trots detta genomgående en lägre lön.

    Rapporten visar också att det finns tydliga regionala skillnader. Dels så skiljer sig de båda

    länen åt i flertalet hänseenden, dels så skiljer de sig från genomsnittet i Sverige. Ett

    exempel på detta är att Jämtland har en större andel kvinnliga chefer än såväl rikssnittet

    som Västernorrland. Ett annat exempel är att skillnaden mellan löneinkomster mellan

    könen är lägre i Jämtland än i Västernorrland och Sverige som helhet. En generell trend

    kan skönjas där Jämtland visar upp en något högre jämställdhet än rikssnittet samtidigt

    som Västernorrland visar upp en lägre grad av jämställdhet som i de flesta fall ligger i

    paritet med eller något under rikssnittet. Följaktligen kan två slutsatser dras. (1)

    Jämställdarbetet måste fortsatt vara en prioritet för att vidare stärka de bägge länens

    attraktionskraft och utvecklingspotential. (2) De insatser som görs måste vara regionalt

    känsliga, d.v.s. beakta länets specifika karaktär och historia, för att få en stark och

    långvarig effekt på jämställdheten.

    A diagnosic framework for eGovernment management2008In: Proceedings of the IADIS International Conference on e-Society 2008, Algarve: IADIS Press, 2008, p. 3-8Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As earlier research has shown, the ways that local leaders and managers translate the overarching idea of eGovernment cause significant consequences for the overall implementation process. In our own research it has become obvious that inside both the translation and the enactment process are invaluable clues for the eGovernment management embedded. Our findings indicate that it is important to consider managers as local mediators of mega trends and that it is necessary to create knowledge about the diverse translation processes and, by doing so, emphasize enactment rather than vision. In this article we suggest that a method called A diagnostic framework for eGovernment management could be a useful method for researchers as well as eGovernment managers to increase the understanding of the enactment process.

    Abstract [en]

    The idea of eGovernment is moving rapidly within supra-national and national and local institutions. At every level leaders are interpreting the idea, attempting to grasp either the next step or indeed the very essence of the idea itself. This article outlines a diagnostic framework, resting on three different dimensions; translation, interpretative frames and sensemaking, to create knowledge about the translation processes and by doing so, emphasize enactment rather than vision. The diagnostic framework is then empirically examined to explore its possible contribution to the understanding of the complexity of leader’s translating and mediating the idea of eGovernment in their local context. In conclusion it is noted that the diagnostic framework reveals logic of appropriateness between local mediators, eGovernment, different areas of interest and appropriate organizational practices.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to rethink alienation in digital culture in the light of Foucault’s "pastoral modalities of power". Pastoral power does not displace other conceptions of power, but provides another level of analysis when considering the forging of reasonable, responsible subjects willing and able to sustain alternative conceptions of power. We will draw particularly on the early writings of Marx and the recent poststructuralist developments concerning hegemony and superstructure in relation to technology. Technology as such is analysed in terms of the repercussions of the "design of the machine" in industrial technological contexts and the "design of digital culture" in digital technological contexts. Pastoral power not only directs our attention to the making of technologies, but also to the making of individuals capable of taking on responsibility for those technologies. This means that it is necessary to acknowledge the fact of the effective power of ideologies and their material realities.

    Gender Equality and Beyond: At the Crossroads of Neoliberalism, Anti-Gender Movements, "European" Values, and Normative Reiterations in the Nordic Model2018In: Social Inclusion, ISSN 2183-2803, E-ISSN 2183-2803, Vol. 6, no 4, p. 1-7Article in journal (Other academic)
    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.

    Normalising welfare boundaries: A feminist analysis of Swedish municipalities' handling of vulnerable EU citizens2017In: Társadalmi Nemek Tudománya Interdiszciplináris eFolyóirat, ISSN 2062-7084, Vol. 7, no 2, p. 24-40Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The so-called freedom of movement granted to EU citizens has made it easier for economically deprived EU citizens to seek their livelihood beyond the borders of their homelands and this has created one of our time’s most socially excluded groups. In Sweden, over the recent years they have come to be known as vulnerable EU citizens. This article analyses what happens when there are no unified regulations as to how Swedish municipalities should prevent social exclusion among those who are not Swedish citizens. Our purpose is to study how officials and politicians normalize certain beliefs with regard to the (im)possibility of providing support to socially-excluded EU citizens residing in their municipalities. The material used in the study is interviews with officials and politicians in Västernorrland, a region of northern Sweden. The study shows that in the absence of common guidelines the normalization of Swedish citizenship has taken place as the basis of the rights to welfare. It is Swedish citizenship that provides you with access to the community; at the same time, it is this community which must be guarded. Prohibition of EU citizens is commonly legitimized by a concern for the municipality’s citizens as if the closing down of the settlements makes social exclusion seize to exist or at least seize to be a problem for the municipalities. This narrative illustrates that it is the settlements and their flaws, rather than the inhabitants’ social exclusion in a broader context that are perceived as problematic.

    Intersectional Approaches in Health-Risk Research: A Critical Review2014In: Sociology Compass, ISSN 1751-9020, E-ISSN 1751-9020, Vol. 8, no 9, p. 1112-1126Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The overall aim of this article is to explore how the intersectional approach is used in health-riskresearch. The concept has been recognized in health-risk research since the early 2000s, but not asmuch as in the broader field of health-inequality studies. However, in the past 5 years, Social Scienceand Medicine has published a series of review articles that argue for the necessity of bringingintersectional perspectives to the field of health-risk studies more generally and quantitative healthriskresearch in particular. Asking what it means for health-risk researchers to practiseintersectionality shows the implications of translating a theoretical approach across fields anddisciplines. When applying intersectional theory in relation to health-risks, the theoretical conceptualizationof health and risk are often very limited and treated as fixed categories – something thatbecomes problematic when taken within an intersectional framework. This does not mean that thiswork is unimportant, but rather that the link between theoretically driven intersectionality andempirical-focused health research is weak. In order to overcome the dividing lines of health-riskresearch and intersectionality, we argue for a new approach that echoes the ‘doing gender’ of genderstudies: doing risk.

    Mapping of Risk Perception and Assessment: Inspiring Methods for National Level Risk Mapping in Sweden2018Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Our modern society is exposed to multiple hazards and risks. To manage these successfully, it is important to have a good overview of the risks that potentially affect our society and how they are perceived and valued. This pilot study investigated possible ways of mapping and analysing risks that Swedish society and its inhabitants are exposed to and aware of. The aim was to capture complementary perspectives on accidents and crises, and to provide a point of departure for future planning and data collection strategies. To achieve this, previous studies are mapped and critically assessed and an example of a method of analysis is presented. The following questions have guided the work: 1) What methods are currently available to describe risks at a broader societal level? 2) What are the limitations, advantages and disadvantages of these existing methods? 3) Which of these methods are of relevance to Sweden? Summarizing previous studies, the report includes examples of methods, structures and data visualizations for mapping risks nationally or in larger regions. The report analyses 11 types of existing study or report as a source of inspiration and to scope existing gaps for potential improvement. The report makes recommendations for national level risk mapping in a Swedish context, supported by an empirical example.
