    Hållbarhetens många ansikten - samtal, forskning och fantasier2017Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna publikation Hållbarhetens många ansiktenär en del av de resultat som kommer frånprojektet Hållbart Samhällsbyggande (HåSa):Från mellersta Norrland till Europas glesabygder. HåSa-projektet har via Tillväxtverketbeviljats stöd ur den Europeiska regionalautvecklingsfonden och i denna antologi harmånga aktörer som ingår i projektet medverkat.Arbetet med publikationen inleddes vid enworkshop i Sollefteå i slutet av september 2016.Vi drevs då av en strävan efter att hållbarhetsarbetetpå flera sätt behöver gå snabbare och blimer omfattande och att vi behöver samarbetaöver ämnesgränser inom akademin, men äventillsammans med aktörer utanför akademin.Ett drygt år senare finns nu denna antologi,efter både kreativt och intensivt samarbete, ochden utgör ett konkret resultat av de tankar somföddes i Sollefteå.

    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.

    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.

    Contradictions in government steering: analyzing the Swedish establishment reform2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In December 2010 significant parts of Swedish migration policy were changed. Through ”establishment reform” a centralization was implemented in which the national level took over the responsibility of municipalities for the establishment of newly arrived immigrants. In today's system, the responsibility is shared between several authorities, and the municipalities, the Swedish Public Employment Service, the County Councils, the Swedish Migration Board, and publicly financed private services are the central actors. Recent governmental reports have described the current situations as being characterized by coordination problems and shortcomings in accountability. Having that said, this policy creates an institutional landscape that spans both vertical and horizontal dimensions, reflecting several levels of the public administration and, simultaneously, actors that originate from the governmental, regional, local, and private sectors. In this article we present one of the first Swedish studies on this reformed policy area and apply theoretically founded ideal types for analyzing the governing within the reform. Hence, the focus of the article is to analyze the complex steering processes that arise when the two quite contradictory elements of centralization and governance emerges. We examine one Swedish region in which parts of the establishment reform was applied as a pilot project before being applied to the rest of Sweden. Results are theoretically unexpected, both giving results of traits of governance steering but also of top-down perspectives and great restrictions for involved actors.

In today's system, the responsibility is shared between several authorities, the municipalities, and publicly financed private actors.

This policy creates an institutional landscape that spans both vertical and horizontal dimensions, reflecting several levels of the public administration and actors that originate from several sectors. The purpose of this article is to explore the governance of Swedish integration policy, with a theoretical focus derived from the ideal types of hierarchy, market, and network. We examine one Swedish region in which parts of the establishment reform were applied as a pilot project before being applied to the rest of Sweden. The theoretically driven results are unexpected in that they reveal traits of governance steering but also of top-down perspectives and restrictions for involved actors in a way that counteracts theoretical logics.

    Neoliberal Steering in Swedish Integration Policy: the Rise and Fall of Introduction Guides2019In: Offentlig Förvaltning. Scandinavian Journal of Public Administration, ISSN 2000-8058, E-ISSN 2001-3310, Vol. 23, no 1, p. 23-40Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the past decades, many policy sectors within European countries have encountered political reforms of neoliberal character. One of the key shifts has been the reorientation of public employment services that has been enforced, for example, through the establishment of what have been denoted as quasi-markets. Simultaneously with the rise of quasi-markets, welfare policy as a whole, including integration policy, has beenincreasingly oriented toward “activation”, with its focus on the individual’s obligationsand duties in relation to welfare services. These circumstances pose particular challenges to those charged with the governance of welfare services due to increasingly complex requirements for collaboration and control involving a multitude of actors. The reform is an example of a hybrid system where for- and non-profit actors compete for the“customer”, in this case, the newly arrived immigrant. This article focuses on the changes in Swedish integration reform as an archetype of these changes and studies a clearly defined case study. Empirically, this study draws from both documents and interviews. The article illustrates an unregulated and ill-monitored policy containing a model that comprises mixed modes of steering. The governance of the reform bears traits from both centralist and cooperative forms of governance and, thereby, involves competing philosophies of steering.

    Public and private networks in a multi-level perspective: A case of Swedish migration policy2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent governmental reports, the migration policy area has been pointed out asbeing characterized by coordination problems and shortcomings in accountability.In today's system, the responsibility is shared between several authorities, and themunicipalities, the Swedish Public Employment Service, the County Councils, theSwedish Migration Board, and publicly financed private services are the centralactors. Having that said, Swedish migration policy represents an archetypalexample of a complex governing process that spans several vertical levels andincludes a variety of actors with sometimes- conflicting responsibilities. Our studyhas the purpose of inquiring into governing within the “establishment reform”,and we base it on interviews with key actors and derive from theoretical idealtypes of networks, markets, and hierarchies. The results are somewhat unexpected.Networking structures run parallel with uncertainties concerning responsibilitiesin this area. Although this is a general flaw in such forms of governance, theaspects of combining this model with strong constraints in self-governance aremore unexpected. Hence, networks are forced to have a top-down perspective,combined with great restrictions in autonomy for the involved actors.

    Regionalpolitik i förändring: en fallstudie av regionalpolitikens aktörer och former i Åre kommun2013Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Regional politics is changing; it is transforming from being mainly a responsibility of the central state to a concern that is more for the regional or local governments. At the same time, there are signs of a transformation of the political system in general. The development indicates a decreasing hierarchy as the power of the state is challenged and the political agents are increasing in number. This indicates that the political agents are changing but there are also indications that the political forms are transforming. The politics is increasingly characterised by project and process politics, networks, cooperation and partnerships. This transformation is generally described as the transformation “from government to governance”. New governance is one of the most frequently discussed issues in contemporary political science literature, and this has led to a wide variety of conceptualizations. Considering the changing regional politics and general changes as the political forms and agents, this thesis studies who governs the regional politics and how regional politics is governed.The purpose of this thesis is to provide empirical contributions in order to increase the understanding of changes in regional politics at the local level. This is done by dividing governance modes into typologies. Four political processes at the local level in the municipality of Åre between the years 1973-2007 are analyzed. The thesis is based on qualitative semi-structured elite interviews. The informants have been selected by snowball sampling. The interviews have also been complemented by documentary studies. The documents that have been studied are the protocols from the municipal assembly from 1973, when the municipality was created, to􀂒􀂟2007. The documents also consist of the parish archives (sockenkrönikor) governmental reports and official documents of the local and state-level government. The material has been analyzed by using process tracing.The main results of the study are that there have been changes in the regional politics at the local level in relation to the political agents and the forms of politics. The 1970s were characterized by strong state power and hierarchy. The political processes have increasingly been characterized by the typology of the new governance. The study has shown that in practice the regional politics in Åre is characterized by both traditional governance and new governance at the same time there has not been a paradigmatic shift. The elements of new governance are increasing but there are still significant signs of the traditional bureaucratic system such as hierarchy and ordered rule. As the signs of new governance increase, the political entrepreneurs play a bigger role in the processes being analyzed. The study also shows that the critique of traditional forms of governance relating to participation and influence has not become irrelevant as the signs of new governance increases.

    Everything’ disappears …: reflexive design and norm-critical intervention in the digitalization of cultural heritage2019In: Information, Communication and Society, ISSN 1369-118X, E-ISSN 1468-4462, Vol. 22, no 10, p. 1361-1375Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    According to narrative trends, digitalization has the potential todeconstruct both power structures and practices of exclusion insociety. What we argue here is that this deconstruction is not theresult of digitalization alone, it is dependent on how digitalizationis done. On the contrary, digitalization has often resulted inreproduction instead of transformation and deconstruction, i.e.digitalization tend to uphold practices instead of challengingthem. Being slightly more provocative, what becomes digitalizedis often what we can easily capture and understand. Similarly,when we open up for an increased participation in the creation ofdigital artifacts (sometimes expressed as demand-driven, citizencentered,or participatory development), those participating indigitalization are often already known; the use of alreadyestablished contact channels making them easy to reach andconnect with. Such logics raise questions about the intersectionsof norms and power and the potential transformative character ofdigitalization. The aim of this paper is to, through a theoreticalframework combining critical information systems, policyenactment and norm critical design, introduce a reflexive designmethod to gently provoke norms. We analyze the need tointervene in the everyday practices of digitalization. This is donein an empirical case study of the making of a regional digitalcultural heritage portal. The results indicate that digitalizationneeds norm critical interventions to change existing practices andprevent norm reproduction. Otherwise, as in this case of thedigitalization of cultural heritage, digitalization runs the risk ofstrengthening existing power structures and excluding practicesinstead of challenging them.

    The home care principle in everyday making of elderly care in everyday making of eldercare policy in rural Sweden2016In: Policy and politics (Print), ISSN 0305-5736, E-ISSN 1470-8442, Vol. 44, no 3, p. 427-439Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Translating the urban based national policy of eldercare to a rural context is seen as a key activity for rural policy actors since the fact that rural municipalities face different issues to urban areas is not reflected in the operational plans for eldercare. The aim of this article is to highlight the process by which urban based policies are enacted in rural municipalities by analysing how the home-care principle in eldercare policies is framed and implemented by different actors at various administrative levels in three rural municipalities. It becomes evident how the institutional position is crucial in the enactment process.

    Human Security, Risk and Sustainability in the Swedish Policy for the Arctic2018In: Human and Societal Security in the Cirumpolar Arctic: Local and Indigenous Communities / [ed] Kamrul Hossain, Jose Miguel Roncero Martin and Anna Petrétei, Brill Academic Publishers, 2018, p. 76-99Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Although four million people live and work in the Arctic, it has become a ‘new’ place to discover and secure for the nation-states and companies that want to explore how to exploit newly available resources and territory as the ice melts. We have witnessed an increase in policies regarding the Arctic from many European and other countries throughout the last decade or more. Sweden became the last of the so-called Arctic states to launch a policy for the Arctic in 2011, and this chapter analyses this policy from a critical perspective. A seemingly ‘neutral’ language may characterize policies, but deriving from a feminist intersectional risk analysis, we argue that policy analysis is a key task for understanding contemporary power structures. By identifying enabling discourses, mobilizing metaphors and underlying assumptions, this analysis shows how Sweden’s policy produces normative constructions of environmental risks anchored in time- and context-dependent beliefs. The strategy adapts to and uses the dominant discourses about the Arctic; it puts risks such as climate change, energy shortage, and human and societal security in the centre while simultaneously positioning Sweden as having the best solutions for managing these risks in a sustainable way. The notion of security drifts towards risk management through arguments about developing and applying sustainable practices, and the strategy uses a language that echoes the language used in stories about conquests and colonial exploration of the Arctic written centuries ago.

    When social inequality goes beyond the nation state: analyzing how Swedish municipalities handle vulnerable EU-migrants2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since 2012 Sweden has faced a seemingly new situation with social inequality displaying itself as an increasing amount of homeless people making a living mainly as beggars in Swedish cities and towns. With the Swedish welfare state and the far reaching local autonomy this situation with social inequality is left to each municipality to decide upon how to handle. The situation is growing in complexity since the majority of the people in the precarious situation are so called “EU-migrants” which means that they are people traveling within EU seeking a better life trying to avoid poverty, unemployment and many times harassments and racism. In this study we have analyzed how it comes that this situation is handled differently by local authorities. Applying a most similar system design we look at how 7 municipalities within a region in the northern parts of Sweden handle the situation with social vulnerability. Given that the municipalities have the same political majority, are located in the same region and are ruled by the same national policies, we pose the question why is the outcome so different? The study shows how the local public officials and politicians are negotiating rights, citizenship and needs and how boundaries are drawn within the welfare state.
