    Att återvinna ett kulturarv: Den politiske entreprenören gör gammalt och nytt2010In: Entreprenörskap i regioners tjänst: Ingångar till nya näringar genom design, upplevelser, kulturarv / [ed] Bengt Johannisson & David Rylander, Jönköping: EIDI, Jönköping International Business School , 2010, p. 75-90Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Glesbygden har de senaste decennierna genomgått förändringar som lett bland annat till en omfattande utflyttning samt ett ständigt minskande serviceutbud. Många försök har gjorts att vända utvecklingen och i vissa fall har man lyckats. Finns det några recept på framgång inom glesbygdsutveckling? Kan det finnas en lösning på problemet i att hämta inspiration ur ett kulturarv, att hämta idéer från det förgångna för att blicka framåt? I projektet som beskrivs i detta kapitel har man försökt göra just detta och initiativet togs av ett antal politiska entreprenörer – politiker eller tjänstemän som agerat entreprenöriellt för att förändra policy eller institutioner. Tack vare det entreprenöriella agerandet lyckades en liten bygd få igenom ett mångmiljonprojekt som strävar efter att vända den negativa trenden både kortsiktigt och långsiktigt. Projektet genomsyras av en nerifrån-och-upp-mentalitet och innehåller prioriteringar som arbetats fram i samarbete med lokalt näringsliv och byalag. Huruvida projektet kommer att lyckas kommer framtiden att utvisa, men det verkar ändå som att det politiska entreprenörskapet kan vara en kraft att räkna med i framtiden – både i just den här bygden och på andra platser.

    Who has the last laugh?: About the entrepreneurial politician as an unconventional problem solver2008Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Politicians as well as entrepreneurs are surrounded by random preconceived notions, some that when you look closely turn out to be incorrect and others that turn out to be rather close to the real picture. In the rather widely debated issue of contempt towards politicians the traditional politician has been described as a person who says one thing but does another. The entrepreneur on the other hand is described by many as curious, creative, independent, devoted, optimistic and visionary.

    This paper will put the entrepreneurial politician in focus and study if and how the political evolution is affected when the politicians act more according to the stereotype of an entrepreneur than that of a politician. It will put the entrepreneurial political into context.

    The empirical material will be constituted by the study of a number of municipal politicians active in two municipalities in Norway (Lierne and Røyrvik) and parts of two municipalities in Sweden (Frostviken and Hotagen). These study objects were chosen due to the fact that there is an ongoing project in the region in question where the four entities together are involved in a cross-national attempt to solve rather traditional peripherality issues. What separates these politicians from other politicians in demographically and economically challenged municipalities is how they have made an attempt to think “outside of the box”. They have used a different rhetoric and an unconventional way of thinking about problem solving. These politicians are visionaries, dreamers and acteurs who have decided to take the measures necessary to stop the downward spiral of development in their home regions.

    In the cases that will be examined it has also been possible to find actors that directly or indirectly have opposed the work in progress or have regarded it with scepticism and/or indifference. But who will have the last laugh? Will it be the entrepreneurial politician who sees his home district rise above its difficulties or will it be the sceptical spectator?
