    Market reforms in Swedish health care: normative reorientation and welfare state sustainability2008In: Journal of Medicine and Philosophy, ISSN 0360-5310, E-ISSN 1744-5019, Vol. 33, no 3, p. 241-61Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

     

    Although the impact of market reforms in Swedish health care stands out as

    not very far-reaching in an international comparison, it represents a route

    away from the features and basic values normally associated with the

    Swedish or Scandinavian model. Summarizing the development over the last

    decades, we may identify signs of sustainability as well as change. Popular

    support for public provision and a robust institutional structure make farreaching

    alterations of existing structures less feasible, although most visible

    changes this far-incremental though they may be-represent a change in

    which the normative foundations of the Swedish model are challenged.

    Stuck with welfare?: Long-term social assistance recipiency in Sweden2004In: European Sociological Review, ISSN 0266-7215, E-ISSN 1468-2672, Vol. 20, no 5, p. 425-443Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    One of the most salient features of the economic crisis in Sweden during the 1990s was the dramatic increase in long-term social assistance recipiency. When times got better at the end of the decade, social assistance in general decreased whereas figures for long-term receipt remained high. With the use of registers that include all social assistance recipients in Sweden from 1990 to 1999 and data on incomes up to 1998, we analysed patterns of exit from and recidivism to long-term recipiency during the decade. We found that variation over time is principally a function of developments in the labour market. Changed generosity or availability in the social assistance system itself seems to have little impact, whereas cutbacks in more universal income maintenance programs appear to have some significance. As to individual characteristics and demographic composition, two groups were central in the boom of long-term recipiency in Sweden in the 1990s: young adults and newly arrived immigrants. Once long-term recipiency was established, it was the latter group that faced the greatest difficulties, with lower exit rates and high recidivism. Young people displayed a higher volatility than other groups and had comparatively high exit rates.

    Socialvård i aktiebolagsform: Om privatiseringar och marknadsreformer i svenskt socialt arbete2005In: Nordisk sosialt arbeid, ISSN 0333-1342, E-ISSN 1504-3037, Vol. 25, no 4, p. 325-336Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    I den här artikeln behandlar vi organisatoriska förändringar inom svensk socialvård, i huvudsak inom ramen för den så kallade individ- och familjomsorgen, i kommunernas socialtjänst – och de tjänster som köps av denna. Vi skall från en begränsad empiri söka ge en översiktlig bild av NPM-reformernas omfattning och inriktning. Redovisningen bygger på data från det så kallade Individ- och familjeomsorgspro-jektet, där chefer inom individ- och familjomsorgen i 100 svenska kommuner intervjuats, och olika typer av skriftligt material insamlats.

     

    I Sverige, som i många andra länder, slog marknadsorientering som idé igenom i den offentliga sektorn under 1980-talet. Tar man del av retoriken från den tiden kan det framstå som om Sverige var en av de ledande marknadsorienterade nationerna. Men om man, som Pollitt och Bouckaerts (2000), jämför med länder vilka kan betraktas som radikala i detta avseende (t.ex Nya Zeeland och Storbritannien) så befinner sig Sverige tillsammans med t. ex Kanada och Finland, snarare i en mittposition av ”moderata” reformatorer.

    Abstract [en]

    There are serious lacunae in our knowledge of staffing levels in the social services individual and family care and the factors that determine these levels. This article presents the results of a study of staffing conditions, conducted as part of the IFO Project, where those responsible for individual and family care in 100 medium-sized Swedish municipalities were interviewed. It was found that there are very large differences in staffing in different municipalities« individual and family care. The municipality with the greatest staff density has four times as many social workers as the municipality with the lowest staff density. As regards changed in the size of staff, it seems that the most expansive field in recent years has been child welfare, while changes in the care of addicts and income support are small. These shifts are understandable against the background of development in the different fields in recent years. The municipal differences in staffing are analysed with the aid of multivariate statistical models to test the significance of demographic, socio-economic, and organizational factors. It turns out that the differences can be partly explained by socioeconomic differences and the way chosen to organize the work, but a great deal of the variation cannot be explained with the aid of the statistical models. The results are discussed in terms of organization and prioritization theory.

    Welfare and the unemployment crisis: Sweden in the 1990s2003In: International Journal of Social Welfare, ISSN 1369-6866, Vol. 12, no 2, p. 108-122Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the 1990s, Sweden went through a deep economic recession accompanied by a massive increase in unemployment & a rapidly growing budget deficit. The crisis had large repercussions for the welfare of many citizens & it generated cutbacks in virtually all social policy programs. This halted a welfare state expansion that had been going on for decades. It also caused great concern about the state of welfare of the nation. In 1999, the Swedish Government appointed a 'Welfare Commission,' a team of academic researchers who were assigned the task of drawing up a balance sheet for the development of welfare in the 1990s. The Commission delivered its final report in Oct 2001. This article is a condensed account of one of the more central issues for the Commission; namely, how the unemployment crisis affected already socially & economically vulnerable groups. Looking at the development over the entire decade, three groups stand out as particularly disadvantaged in terms of individual welfare resources: young adults, immigrants, & single mothers. The downturn for these groups was especially accentuated in terms of employment & income. Young people & immigrants trying to get into the labor market during the crisis years faced the problems of newcomers to the systems of social protection. The poor economic development for single mothers could essentially be attributed to the shortage of work in general & of full-time work in particular that followed from the unemployment crisis. As a consequence, the importance of selective benefits increased & the relative size of all public transfers -- despite rationing measures -- stayed fairly unchanged. The results highlight the great influence of macroeconomic conditions & policy making for the welfare of vulnerable groups in society. 3 Tables, 6 Figures, 14 References.

    Prediction of homelessness and housing provisions in Swedish municipalities2008In: European Journal of Housing Policy, ISSN 1461-6718, E-ISSN 1473-3269, Vol. 8, no 4, p. 399-421Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores key predictors of homelessness rates in different Swedish munici-palities, the accommodation provided and the coverage of accommodation to homeless-ness. In order to create realistic models, seven sets of factors represent various structural levels in stepwise regressions. These sets are urbanisation, economy, demographic com-position, housing market, aggregated individual problems, political majority and policies and organisational features of the social services. The findings show that urbanization is central to understanding variations in homelessness and has also impact on housing pro-visions. In addition, higher rent levels as well as aggregated psychiatric problems seem to increase the level of problems. Overall supply of apartments and the proportion of public housing are important factors in providing accommodation, and a demographic factor, such as the proportion of single-parent households, seems to enhance such a provision. Political majority as well as the functional organization of the social services seems to independently impact coverage rates. Despite the importance of urbanization, findings indicate that a number of factors with impact on the problem and on the possibilities to handle them are manageable by the municipalities. Key words: predicting homelessness, accommodation, housing provisions, local author-ity, social services.

    Priorities and determinants of priorities of Swedish social workers2012In: European Journal of Social Work, ISSN 1369-1457, E-ISSN 1468-2664, Vol. 15, no 5, p. 645-663Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Priority setting is an integrated part of social work, in Sweden as well as internationally.In this article we explore Swedish social services and how social workers make priorities and what these priorities involve. By use of regression analysis we also study what circumstances are of importance for allocative precedence and what impact different distributive principles have. One primary result is that priorities are made frequently by social workers mostly on what cases to work with next and how much time to spend on every client. Another somewhat expected result is a manifest area bias, suggesting that respondents tend to see to the interests of their own professional domain. The principle of need proved to be the most important of the distributive principles studied, while principles of capacity to benefit and economy were more endorsed by officials working with elderly and disabled than those in other sectors.
