    Human trafficking in the media: A comparison of source and destination countries2009In: Beyond East and West: Two decades of media transformation after the fall of communism, 2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the existing empirical data on media coverage of human trafficking as part of a larger effort to establish a theoretical foundation for understanding the nature of national media coverage of cross-border issues. Because the EU contains source, transit and destination countries for trafficking, it provides an interesting “laboratory” for observing how national media behave – are source countries more likely to “blame” the richer countries while destination countries “blame” the poverty in source countries? What are the solutions? Who is responsible? These questions are important if international solutions are to be achieved, but in order to solve problems, policy-makers, activists and academics need a reliable database upon which to build. This paper finds that there is a severe lack of systematic comparative analysis of media content on the issue of trafficking and proposes a possible approach to build upon in the future.

    Human trafficking in the Swedish media: preliminary findings2004In: ATINER Conference on Media and Communication, Athens, Greece, May 2004, 2004Conference paper (Other scientific)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents the initial findings of Swedish newspaper coverage of human trafficking issues over the period 1990-2004, examining the scope, prominence and visibility of the issue as well as the nature of coverage. It finds that the issue maintained a fairly low profile during the 1990's but jumped dramatically in the year 2000 and continued to escalate since that time. The initial jump seems to be associated with editorials written by opinion leaders pertaining to the issue as a whole and in particular the creation of anti-trafficking legislation in Sweden. The subsequent rise in coverage consists mainly of journalistic reporting both about the larger issue and in reference to violations of the new law.

    Tyst kunskapsöverföring vid personalomsättning: En studie om hur en organisation arbetar med att ta tillvara på den tysta kunskapen2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    I dag är det inte längre resurser som till exempel kapital, mark, maskiner och teknologi som är de viktigaste tillgångarna för organisationer, utan snarare individers intellektuella resurser så som kunskap. Detta har blivit en av de viktigaste ingredienserna i konkurrensen mellan organisationer. Studiens syfte var att få en djupare förståelse för hur organisationer kan arbeta med att underlätta överföringen av den tysta kunskapen vid omsättning av personal. Med hjälp av kvalitativa intervjuer har vi gjort en studie inom en svensk kommunal förvaltning. Resultatet visar fyra olika tillvägagångssätt som används för att behålla den tysta kunskapen inom förvaltningen; överlappning, öppen stämning, utvecklingsgrupp och mentorskap.

    Multi-dimensional data modelling for a tourism destination data warehouse2013In: Information and Communication Technologies in Tourism 2013, Proceedings of the ENTER Conference 22-25 January 2013, Innsbruck, Austria / [ed] Cantoni, L. & Xiang, Z, Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2013, p. 157-169Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Information and communication technologies (ICTS) play a crucial role to increase the knowledge base of destination stakeholders. Organisational learning and managerial effectiveness can particularly be enhanced by applying methods of business intelligence (BI). Although huge amounts of data are available in tourism destinations these valuable knowledge sources typically remain unused. The described problem is solved by conceptualizing, prototypically implementing and testing a novel destination management information system (DMIS) that applies methods of BI and data warehousing for the leading Swedish ski destination, Åre. As being a central DMIS component, the destination-wide data warehouse (DW), its underlying multi-dimensional data model, the technical architecture, as well as critical implementation issues are discussed. Finally, the prototypical implementation of the DMIS focussing on the data warehouse and OLAP functionalities for customer feedback processes proved the suitability and effectiveness of the proposed overall architecture.

    Airbnb as an instigator of ‘tourism bubble’ expansion in Utrecht's Lombok neighbourhood2019In: Tourism Geographies, ISSN 1461-6688, E-ISSN 1470-1340, Vol. 21, no 5, p. 822-840Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Airbnb phenomenon as part of the broader growth of the so-called collaborative economy has grabbed the attention of a growing number of tourism researchers. Among the topics explored have been investigations as to the spatial tendencies of Airbnb in cities and discussions concerning its effects, inter alia, on gentrification, over-touristification and eventual resident displacement. Recognizing that the majority of extant studies have been conducted either in major cities, which in their own right attract large numbers of visitors or in tourism-intensive smaller communities we chose to investigate what Airbnb growth means for a mid-sized city with a highly diversified economy, which is not yet over-touristified. Our focus was on the Dutch city of Utrecht. Through a geospatial and statistical analysis of AirDNA data, we explored the growth of Airbnbs in the city overall, focusing specifically on the phenomenon's effects on the Lombok neighbourhood, a nascent ‘neo-bohemia’ neighbouring the city-centre tourist bubble. Our analysis reveals that although Airbnb activity in this neighbourhood is relatively recent there are signs suggesting that further touristification of parts of Lombok has ignited increased Airbnb activity. Moreover, there is a distance decay of Airbnb activity as one moves away from the city centre and from established tourism services including restaurants. These findings suggest that in an emerging neo-bohemian space such as Lombok, Airbnb takes on a role as instigator of urban tourism bubble expansion. The study ends with a call for further investigations to better understand the implications expanded Airbnb activity has, among others, on social justice within cities. For example, future investigations could examine the manner in which Airbnbs influence the everyday life of the residents of urban spaces and investigate the conflicts that might arise in Airbnb ghettoes between visitors and locals.

    Challenges of Destination Management Companies Barcelona Case: Barcelona Case2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Today, with the use of information technology, we are experiencing a rapid growth in the travel industry online, while traditional channels of selling appear to be in decline. The convenience of booking online and saving on agents‘ fees can influence potential travellers to skip the service of a travel intermediary. Especially in the MICE industry, this phenomenon is quite under-researched. Previous research has shown particularly that the incentive segment has been the fastest growing of the MICE-sector since 2009. This study focuses on incentive planning with trips to Barcelona and the shift in booking behaviour due to a global explosion in information flows. The aim was to reveal specific reasons for incentive planners to book travel directly with various tourism suppliers instead of taking advantage of a destination management company (DMC) and its services. Since a big issue for DMCs is the loss of business clients, leading to lower turnovers, it is necessary to study this problem. After obtaining a better understanding of incentive planners‘ behaviour, the study offers suggestions of how the marketing strategies of business travel intermediaries can be further developed. Particularly, one of the biggest business centres in Europe, Barcelona, will be in the focus of the study. At the end of this study, based on interviews with 6 DMC managers, results are presented and an analysis of the current situation on the incentive market is made. As an outcome of my study, solutions for the challenges from the research are discussed and concluded. Thanks to them, DMCs in Barcelona can better adapt their marketing strategies on incentive markets.

    Hantering av allmänna handlingar i ett statligt affärsverk2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här uppsatsen handlar om hur organisationer som omfattas av offentlighethetslagstiftningen men samtidigt bedriver affärsverksamhet på en konkurrensutsatt marknad uppfyller både offentlighetslagstiftningens krav kring hantering av allmänna handlingar och de krav som uppkommer från verksamheten.

    Syftet med uppsatsen är att ge kunskap om vilka faktorer som påverkar uppfyllnad av offentlighetslagstiftningens krav kring allmänna handlingar i offentligt affärsverksamhet som agerar på en konkurrensutsatt marknad.

    Uppsatsen är baserad på en fallstudie av affärsverket Luftfartsverket (LFV) och omfattar intervjuer, litteratur och dokumentstudier av både interna och externa dokument samt granskning av ett antal kammarrättsdomar rörande utlämnade av allmänna handlingar från LFV där beslutet har nekats med hänvisning till affärssekretess och sedan överklagats till kammarrätten.

    Uppsatsen huvudsakliga slutsatser är:

     Lagstiftningen ger möjligheter att skydda affärskritisk information. Det finns dock en oro både inom verket och hos samarbetspartners att de som är satta att tillämpa regelverket vid begäran om utlämnade inte har tillräcklig kunskap att bedöma vad som är affärskritiskt för olika organisationer

     Det finns viss administration kopplat till hantering av allmänna handlingar i ett affärsverk som en konkurrent som inte omfattas av offentlighetsprincipsregelverket inte har. Det finns både positiva och negativa effekter för ett affärsverk av denna administration och det har inte i denna studie kunnat påvisas vilket som överväger.

     Vid förändringar i omvärlden är det av stor vikt att man gör en konsekvensanalys över hur regelverken ska tolkas och hanteras internt i organisationen om detta inte görs så kan det innebära att olika individer och grupper av medarbetare hanterar regelverken olika.

     Medarbetarnas kunskap, insikt och tillämpning är avgörande för framgång.

    National Heritage Areas: Building a Cyclic Program Theory Model from Qualitative Data and Practitioner Knowledge2008Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    National Heritage Areas (NHAs) represent a recent model for protected areas in the U.S. NHAs operate through partnerships with local communities, government agencies, and other organizations. Since 1984, 37 NHAs have been established by Congress, making this one of the fastest growing programs affiliated with the National Park Service and raising important national policy questions. Qualitative research conducted at three NHAs identified several common themes despite wide variations in their geographic, social, economic, and political contexts. This paper reflects on a project that engaged practitioners and other stakeholders in building a collective understanding of NHAs. The group developed a common program theory model, which represents the cyclic and long-term nature of heritage stewardship and is designed to serve as the foundation for an evaluation strategy applicable to all NHAs. The presentation will consider the approaches used, the challenges encountered, and the high stakes policy and management issues entailed.

    A National Park and Associated “Think Tank” Critically Reflect on Their First Decade: Client and Evaluator Perspectives on Lessons Learned2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Weiss defines the unit of analysis as 'the entity about which data are collected, analyzed, and conclusions drawn.' In contrast to most evaluations that are conducted at the program level, this study examined the work of two affiliated organizations within the U.S. National Park Service (NPS): Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park and the Conservation Study Institute co-located in Woodstock, Vermont. The evaluation elicited critical reflections from stakeholders on the successes and challenges of the Park's and Institute's major undertakings. Interviewees also considered strategic directions for the organizations' next decade given the NPS context and broader trends in conservation. The most valuable findings included insights about the evolving context in which these two entities operate and stakeholders' articulation of the role that future Park and Institute programming might play in advancing collaborative conservation. The session will feature client and evaluator perspectives on the organizational learning prompted by a study of this scope.

    Engelska som koncernspråk - när kommunikationen går över gränserna: Paper presented at: The 17th Conference on Media and Communicaions, Ålborg Danmark2005Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Globaliseringen av de privata företagens verksamhet har tillsammans med utvecklingen av ny informationsteknik medfört att engelskan fått en allt större roll i organisationens kommunikation. När kommunikationen går över gränserna krävs ett gemensamt språk. Allt fler företag inför därför engelska som koncernspråk. Men kunskapen om vad den nya språksituationen i företagen innebär för chefer och medarbetare och vilka konsekvenser den får för deras kommunikation har hittills inte studerats i någon större omfattning. I forskningsprojektet �Engelska som koncernspråk� studerar jag chefers och medarbetares attityder till och användning av engelskan i Sveriges 200 största företag. I mitt paper kommer jag att redovisa och diskutera resultatet från två enkätundersökningar som genomfördes under hösten 2004 och våren 2005. Den första enkäten syftade till en översiktlig bild av språksituationen i företagen. Nära hälften av de 140 företag som besvarade enkäten hade infört engelska som koncernspråk, och lika många uppgav att merparten av de anställda finns utanför Sverige. Däremot hade de inte i särskilt stor utsträckning flyttat ut sina huvudkontor. Det var också en liten andel av företagen som hade några riktlinjer för språkanvändningen. Den andra enkäten, som omfattade chefers och medarbetares attityder till och användning av engelskan, skickades till tio anställda i 20 av de 200 största företagen. De frågor jag särskilt kommer att diskutera är omfattningen av engelskan, vilka kommunikationsproblem som är ofta förekommande och hur respondenterna uppfattar sin kommunikationskompetens i engelska.

    Abstract [en]

    This article introduces key concepts in Erving Goffman's sociology, which are advocated to be important to our understanding of social interaction and the study of interpersonal relationships with internal and external publics. The concepts of impression management, framing, footing and face have bearing upon essential notions in public relations: relationships, identification and image. Thus, it is predicted that development of these concepts in public relations research will deepen our understanding of communication processes that have important implications for the relation of publics in public relations.

    Research on Organizational Communication - The Case of Sweden: Paper presented at: International Communication Association, Dresden, Germany2005Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Swedish research on organizational communication is characterized by empirical, qualitative research. The tradition of holistic and profound case studies is strong. In this paper, a wide definition of organizational communication is employed, including research focusing on both internal and external communication. Research themes and methods are reviewed and discussed. The majority of the studies concern public information, including health communication and crisis communication. Particularly, scholars have studied planning and evaluation of information campaigns concerning health, traffic and environment; and more recently, authority communication during major crises in society. Research focusing on organizations� internal communication includes topics such as superior-subordinate communication, organizational learning, sense making, communication strategies and communication efficiency. Strengths and weaknesses following from this empirical case study research tradition are highlighted. Finally, the contribution of Swedish research in an international perspective is discussed.

    Visioner och verkligheter: Kommunikationen om företagets strategi2003Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other scientific)
    Abstract [en]

    The starting point for this study is the question of why organizational visions are often interpreted by employees as unintelligible and insignificant. The knowledge gap in this area makes the study of communication about vision and goals both urgent and interesting.

    Accordingly, the purpose is to advance knowledge on communication processes in organizations through description and analysis of communication about strategy, encompassing vision, strategic objectives and common values, in a company.

    A case study design was chosen and a longitudinal qualitative study was conducted in the company, from April 1998 to January 2000. A combination of methods were used, including participant observation, discourse analysis and interviews.

    Communication about the strategy followed a typical top-down model, starting on group level and ending on department level. In this process, Balanced Scorecard was used as a tool to communicate the strategy.

    It was concluded that visions formulated by top managers met different realities constructed by managers at lower levels in the company. Managers’ attitudes, knowledge and interpretations were important individual factors that influenced communication about the strategy. Employees did not have the same detailed knowledge of the strategy as the managers, nor were they given the same opportunities to obtain it.

    The discourse analysis reveals power structures, conflicts, individual attitudes and perspectives. The study thus results in a deep understanding of communication problems in the organization.

    Visions and realities - Discourse in a strategy communication process: Paper presented at: International Communication Association 55th Annual Conference. Communication: Questioning the dialogue. May 26-30 2005. New York, USA2005Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents a longitudinal qualitative study of communication about strategy, encompassing vision, strategic objectives and common values in a company. Communication followed a top-down process from CEO down the hierarchy of managers to employees. A combination of methods: interviews, observations and discourse analysis, was used to find important factors influencing the strategy communication process. The analysis demonstrates how visions formulated by top managers met different realities constructed by subordinate managers. Discourse dimensions of framing, footing and face reveal the importance of individual experience, attitudes, and power to sensemaking in the strategy communication process. Accordingly, this method is considered to enhance analyses of sensemaking and communication problems in organizations.

    Speaking of Change: Three communication approaches in studies of organizational change2008In: Corporate Communications. An International Journal, ISSN 1356-3289, E-ISSN 1758-6046, Vol. 13, no 3, p. 288-305Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    AbstractPurpose – The purpose of the present review of communication approaches to organizational changeis to identify and further develop the range of perspectives available in the literature and to present aframework on communication and change that could underpin future research.Design/methodology/approach – Research on communication, narratives, stories and discourse,which have mapped new terrain in the study of organizational change, is reviewed and discussed.Findings – The authors conclude that despite the vast academic and popular change literature,communication approaches to change still remain underdeveloped and communication scholars are,with few exceptions, remarkably absent in the field. Three challenges for the future are proposed, thatresearchers of communication and organizational change need to consider.Originality/value – This paper provides a comprehensive literature review in the field ofcommunication during organizational change. By integrating these studies in a new framework ofcommunication as tool, process and social transformation, the authors offer a new foundation fortheory building in this area. Further development and integration of these three differentcommunication approaches is suggested, which would offer better conditions for research and practiceto embrace the complex processes of organizational change.Keywords Organizational change, Communication, Change management, Emergent strategyPaper type Literature review

    Den nya arkivredovisningen2010Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med uppsatsen är att analysera vilka motiveringar de olika aktörerna anförde för införandet av en ny arkivredovisning, samt att undersöka vilka målsättningar man satte upp. Syftet är vidare att genom en analys av den nya arkivredovisningens nyckelbegrepp undersöka dels hur stort handlingsutrymme de så kallade försöksmyndigheterna hade att skapa sina egna modeller för arkivredovisning, dels hur entydigt begreppen användes. I uppsatsen analyseras följande frågeställningar: * Hur motiverades behovet av en ny arkivredovisning av RA och försöksmyndigheterna? Vilka mål skulle uppnås genom förändringen? * Hur stort handlingsutrymme hade försöksmyndigheterna att skapa sina egna modeller för arkivredovisning? * Vilka nyckelbegrepp ingår i den nya arkivredovisningen och hur entydigt har de använts under den nya arkivredovisningens utveckling? När det gäller frågan om motiveringarna till och målsättningarna för den nya arkivredovisningen har materialet disponerats efter de två kronologiska faser som urskiljts i genomförandet av den nya arkivredovisningen; förberedelsefasen och genomförandefasen. Analysen visar att skälet till att Riksarkivet i mitten av 1990-talet drog slutsatsen att det fanns behov av en ny arkivredovisningsmodell har att göra med de brister i den tidigare modellen som upptäcktes genom det s.k. SATS-projektet. Projektet visade att myndigheterna misskötte arkivredovisningen. Skälet angavs vara att arkivredovisningen inte fyllde någon funktion och att den dåvarande modellen, som byggde på allmänna arkivschemat, inte ansågs fingera i en alltmer IT-präglad verksamhet. Motiveringarna rör sig även på en mer generell nivå, där samhällsförändringar som EU-inträdet anförs som motiveringar för att en ny arkivredovisningsmodell behövs. I uppsatsen väcks frågan om Riksarkivets förklaringar till att bristerna i arkivredovisningen framstår som övertygande, och alternativa tolkningar omnämns. Riksarkivets uttalade målsättningar med den nya arkivredovisningen framstår som generellt hållna, och går inte alltid att koppla ihop med motiveringarna. Ett av målen kan ändå sägas ha varit att arkivredovisningen skulle integreras med verksamhetsstöden i vid mening. Dessutom avsågs den nya modellen utgöra en förenkling jämfört med tidigare modell. I uppsatsen diskuteras huruvida dessa målsättningar kan sägas ha nåtts, och det noteras att Riksarkivet inte förefaller ha tagit initiativ till någon utvärdering av försöksmyndigheternas verksamhet. I uppsatsen analyseras även det handlingsutrymme försöksmyndigheterna kan anses ha haft att skapa sina egna arkivredovisningsmodeller, och det noteras att handlingsutrymmer kan sägas ha minskat med tiden. Det finns tecken på att Riksarkivet försökte skapa en något enhetligare begreppsapparat i samband med att försöksmyndigheternas dispensansökningar skulle omsättas i myndighetsspecifika föreskrifter, men detta intryck är inte entydigt. Sammantaget pekar undersökningsresultaten snarare mot att den nya arkivredovisningen innehåller ett avsevärt mått av begreppsförvirring, som inte minskar genom RA-FS 2008:4 eller den regelkommentar som följde på författningen.

    Spirituality within the Prison Walls – The Impact of a 30-days Retreat at the Prison in Kumla2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this qualitative master thesis was to explore how a 30-days spiritual retreat at the prison in Kumla has affected male prisoners coping strategies in everyday life. Non-probability samples of five prisoners were interviewed and they were contacted through snowball sampling. Three of the participants were still serving their sentence in prison at the time of the interview, and two were released. The result showed a positive change within the areas of handling negative emotions, finding a meaning with incarceration, reconciliation with themselves, less infractions and a reevaluation of their lives. The result showed a positive change in all of the prisoner’s lives in various areas. A majority have started to define themselves as spiritual and believing in a God or "a creating power" after attending the retreat. The negative influence of the spiritual retreat could be a new spiritual concept taking over their previous criminal lifestyle. There could also be seen a tendancy towards religious ruminations.
