    Voluntary Associations and Local Level Politics: Voluntary Associations as Sources of Political Capital?2010Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper investigates whether the local political context has an impact on the frequency of contacts between voluntary associations and local politicians. The study contains data from two different surveys, one directed towards the citizens of the four selected municipalities and the other directed towards local voluntary associations and it also contains qualitative interviews with local level politicians. One of the conclusions is that one aspect of political opportunities structures, the stability of the political majority, seems to matter for the perceived outcome of the contacts between voluntary associations and local politicians. With one dominating political party in the local government the local voluntary associations seem to find it more difficult to influence local level politicians.

    Makt till vilket pris?: En jämförande studie av office-seeking hos partierna inom Allians för Sverige2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Den 17 september 2006 röstade det svenska folket för ett maktskifte i riksdagen. Den nya regeringsmakten gick under namnet Allians för Sverige och bestod av partierna Moderaterna, Centerpartiet, Folkpartiet och Kristdemokraterna. För skapandet av denna allians utarbetade partierna en tydlig gemensam politik och ett gemensamt valmanifest.

    Detta är en undersökning om vad dessa fyra partier har fått offra av sin egen politik till den gemensamma politikens fördel, samt om något eller några partier har fått åsidosätta större del politik än resterande partier. Den beroende variabeln är därmed graden av office-seeking. För undersökningen har partiernas valmanifest 2002 varit utgångspunkten. På denna grund har partiernas politiska meningsskiljaktigheter noterats. Partiernas respektive ståndpunkter har därefter jämförts mot vad den gemensamma politiken från 2006 och framåt avser. För att visa på eventuella vinnare och förlorare avseende partiernas genomslag av den egna politiken har spelteorin Chicken race används. Chicken race, vars namn härstammar från spelet om att vika undan eller riskera kollision, visar hur partierna har agerat i frågor som karaktäriserats av olika åsikter.

    Resultatet visar att de tre mindre partierna i Allians för Sverige har högre grad av office-seeking än vad det större partiet Moderaterna har.

    Nya lokala partier - varför bildas dessa?: En studie över politiskt entreprenörskap i norrländska kommuner2008Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen behandlade frågan om varför nya lokala politiska partier uppstått i norrländska kommuner. Den teoretiska utgångspunkten var ett rationellt aktörshandlande och ett metodologiskt individualistiskt synsätt. Den politiske entreprenören bakom partiet stod i fokus, vilka drivkrafter denne haft, motivet bakom partibildningen samt vilken påverkansmöjlighet det lokala partiet har haft i den kommunala politiken. Representanter för fjorton lokala partier i Norrland intervjuades. Vidare undersöktes omgivningsfaktorer såsom arbetslöshet, valdeltagande och diffusionseffekter. Uppsatsens slutsats blev att dessa omgivningsfaktorer endast hade en begränsad förklaringskraft och att ett nybildande av partier främst kunde förklaras genom ett starkt missnöje i samhället och starka politiska entreprenörer.

    Innovative destination governance: The Swedish ski resort of Åre2007In: International Journal of Entrepreneurship and Innovation, ISSN 1465-7503, Vol. 8, no 1, p. 53-66Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores the impact of governance on destination development, focusing on public-private relations, formal and informal networks as well as resource dependencies. The empirical contribution is based on a single case study of the Swedish ski resort of Åre. In the concluding section, some of the results are developed into suggestions about if and how the governance structure matters in terms of performance. The results indicate that trustful public-private relations, joint risk-taking, informal structures and strategic consensus can have a positive impact on the level of growth in a destination.

    Styrideal och konflikt: Om friskoleetablering i tre norrländska kommuner2011Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    During the last decades, the public sector in Western democracies has undergone drastic changes. These changes have meant privatization and a more diverse service provision. Because of privatization, activities that were previously reserved for the public sector can now be conducted by the private sector. This has led to the traditional hierarchical model to be challenged by a new governing style throughmarket mechanisms, which was introduced during the 1980s. Both the hierarchical model and market model have since been supplemented by the network model that was introduced in the 1990s. The new organization has meant that steering is currently done in a complex environment with varying outcomes. In the foreground of the theoretical concepts that captures the development describedearlier is governance. The starting point of the governance perspective is that the traditional bureaucracy model for governing is challenged by new forms of organization and steering. In the early 1990s, it became possible, due to a change in legislation, to startindependent schools with public funding. This legislation change has had a major impact on the Swedish school system in terms of organization and steering issues. The purpose of this thesis is to investigate how the ideals of hierarchy, market andnetworking appear in the municipal steering of the local school system, and how these ideals affect the development and the intensity of the conflicts in the surveyed municipalities. The focus of the empirical study is three municipalities from the northern parts of Sweden, which are equal in terms of population, number of school pupils, the number of independent schools and with the samepolitical majority. The overall result of the thesis is that different governing ideals affect the levels of conflict in different ways. The municipality governed by marked ideals exhibit thehighest degree of conflict and the municipality governed by the network ideal exhibit lower levels of conflict. The municipality governed by the hierarchical ideal in the middle of the conflict scale.

    Decision-Making in a Governance Context: An Analytical Framework2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In political science in general and specifically in the field of policy analysis, an eternal question concerns how decisions and policies arise. Just as political science has been influenced by movements such as governance and new public management, the analysis of decision-making has to adapt to new circumstances. Modern societies today are more complex and more polycentric than before and include competing actors that represent different interests. Hence, the need for an inclusive perspective seems obvious. Adding a methodological perspective, it is hard to know when these actions represent expressions from individuals or, alternatively, groups. In other words, when do individual actors’ actions transform into influencing norms, values, and cultures that affect the political system? By reviewing and analyzing earlier research on how decision-making is reached, the overall ambition of this article is to create a framework for analyzing processes of decision-making at local levels. Such a framework, that takes into account both the complexity of modern multi-governance and adds methodological perspectives of macro, micro, and causal mechanisms, can be used in future research to achieve richer pictures of how decision-making is carried out.

    Methods for analyzing decision-making: a framework approach2014In: Quality and quantity, ISSN 0033-5177, E-ISSN 1573-7845, Vol. 48, no 5, p. 2523-2535Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In political science an eternal question concerns how decisions and policies arise. Modern society, characterized by more uncertainty and complexity than before, increases the challenge of providing valid answers. However, the general lack of methodological concern in several previous studies in this area stresses the need for elaborations of more suitable approaches. In this article we add a methodological perspective that deals with this very question. By reviewing and analyzing earlier research on how decision-making is reached, the overall ambition of this article is to create a framework that can lay the methodological foundation for further studies. Such a framework, which takes into account both the complexity of modern multi-governance societies and adds methodological perspectives of macro and micro standpoints as well as of causal mechanisms, can be used in future research to achieve richer pictures of how decision-making is carried out. In addition, we show how a certain technique of analysis is highly compatible to this framework and that jointly these features provide solutions for a better understanding of the complexity of modern decision-making. All in all, applying this strategy can be used to better systematize complex causal chains that reflect different analytical levels and thereby increase leverage on how to understand and explain the process of political decisions.

    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.

    Autonomy and islands: A global study of the factors that determine island autonomy2007Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Att ett geografiskt territorium uppnår autonomi förklaras ofta av skillnad I etnicitet, språk eller religion. En region som skiljer sig i någon av dessa kulturella aspekter från övriga regioner i ett land anses därför ha större sannolikhet att utveckla autonomi. Pär M. Olausson visar i sin avhandling att kulturella aspekter inte är den viktigaste förklaringen till att vissa öar utvecklar autonomi. Kulturella aspekter är bara en del i förklaringen till varför vissa öar utvecklar autonomi medan andra förblir en integrerad del av moderlandet. Kulturella aspekter måste kombineras med andra aspekter för att utgöra en tillräcklig förklaring till skillnaden i autonomi.

     

    Bland de autonoma regionerna i världen idag utgör öar en klar majoritet. Öar anses ofta ha speciella egenskaper som gör att de skiljer sig från fastlandet. Känslan av samhörighet och gemenskap är ofta starkare på öar pga deras ofta isolerade läge vilket i sin tur anses förklara varför många öar utvecklar autonomi. Genom att studera både autonoma och icke-autonoma öar visar Olausson att autonomi kan förklaras av att ön ligger längre än 1 000 km från fastlandet eller att den skiljer sig från fastlandet i någon av de kulturella aspekterna, att den har varit ockuperad av främmande stat och därmed avskiljd från övriga landet eller utgjort en egen stat. Den viktigaste förklaringen till varför vissa öar utvecklar autonomi men inte andra är emellertid öns strategiska betydelse.

    Conditions for Island Autonomy: Statsvetarförbundets årsmöte2006Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The investigation is focusing on why island autonomy occurs. Our point of departure considers three European autonomous islands: the Azores, the Faeroe Islands and the Isle of Man. Since the nation-building process has had a long tradition in Europe, we claim that the circumstances have been prosperous for islands achieving special status within their metropolitan countries. Further we assume that different legal traditions lead to different kinds of autonomy arrangements. The selection has therefore been to include different legal aspects as the Nordic dimension with the Faeroe Islands, the South European tradition (which is a mixture of various other traditions) represented by the Azores, and the British tradition with no written constitution with Isle of Man as our prime example. The analysis is performed using QCA, MVQCA and Fuzzy Set.

    Seeking resilience through tourism in Greenland: A cautious outlook in the risky era of climate change2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite the malaise associated with climate change, in Polar Regions (e.g., Greenland and Northern Canada) many have cautiously argued that the general upswing in ocean temperatures can be deemed positive because it presents the opportunity for introducing new economic activities. In the case of Greenland, Motzfeldt (quoted in Nutall 2008: 46) has argued that though hunting activities may be negatively affected because of ice melting in coastal region, conditions are favourable for activities such as fishing or tourism. Greenland itself constitutes an interesting case study of the effects of global climate change on polar regions given its increasing autonomy from Denmark (Home Rule), however, the issue that emerges is whether the present growth-oriented development path with its emphasis on extractive activities (e.g., aluminium and goal mining) in the island’s interior and tourism especially in coastal areas constitutes a knee-jerk reaction. Furthermore, is this part of a bouncing forward process (Davoudi, 2012) increasing community resilience, and if so, whose resilience is actually increased? In this paper we focus on the tourism sector though we recognize that parallel investigations should also be conducted relating to the mining and other related activities. Using an evolutionary economic geography (EEG) lens we argue that the tourism sector is being introduced as a substitute to traditional activities (e.g., fishing and hunting). However, in order to fully comprehend the dynamics of this strategy, it is important to pursue a relational approach recognizing, for instance, historic forces as well as the political/institutional context (Carson and Carson 2016). Effectively, the current growth rhetoric focuses overwhelmingly on exogenously-controlled interests (e.g., multinational tour operators and cruise companies) at the expense of indigenous businesses. Our argument is that though effectively what is happening in Greenland could be summarized as an adaptation to vulnerability imposed by climate change the overall resilience of a locally spun tourism sector is severely compromised by the current rhetoric.

    Abstract [en]

    A growing number of scholars question the sustainability of liberal representative democracy and a welfare state dominated by the big organizations in both the public and private sectors. The state is over extended and democracy is stretched to its limits. Walzer proposes to democratize the means of distributing welfare services by greater citizen involvement, while Hirst calls for devolving many of the functions of the state to civil society. However, missing from such macro proposals is a micro perspective of citizens co-producers. The first part of this presentation introduces the concept of co-production, with a focus on greater citizen participation in the provision of public services. A review of the literature demonstrates several advantages of co-production, but also some major hurdles. The second part ties the concept of co-production to a discussion of parents' participation in the provision of childcare services in Europe. Finally, the importance of co-production for promoting the development and renewal of democracy and the welfare state is discussed.
