    Patterns of co-production in public services - Some concluding thoughts2006In: Public Management Review, ISSN 1471-9037, E-ISSN 1471-9045, Vol. 8, no 4, p. 591-595Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Research on the roles of the third sector in the delivery of public services has so far been scattered. However, there is much to learn from drawing the different manifestations of third-sector involvement together, as each represents an element of the third sector within the public services, expressed in different ways. An interesting question for research and practice is how different combinations of such elements are and should be embedded, given the variations in national structures of service provision. The studies presented in this collection have offered a stepping-stone in progressing towards an answer. Here we offer some suggestions for a future research agenda. These concern, respectively, the relationships between different roles of the third sector, links with the analysis of welfare state reform and the function of co-production.

    Demokratisering i rentierstater: en jämförande analys med fokus på oljeexporterande länder2008Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna uppsats var att undersöka om och vilka faktorer som motverkar demokratisering inom oljeexporterande rentierstater. Med stöd av moderniseringsteorin och teorin om rentierstater har tre hypoteser formulerats som sammanlagt innehållit tre oberoende och elva beroende variabler vilka kodades som tidsserier i paneldata. Tjugo ett rentierland har identifierats vilket omfattar hela populationen. Hypotesen har sedan testats med hjälp av en OLS regressionsanalys med panelspecifika standardavvikelser. Hypotesen om att det uppstår en rentiereffekt kunnat bekräftas med två av totalt tre variabler. Hypotesen om att det uppstår en repressionseffekt har bekräftats med höga signifikansnivåer hos bägge oberoende variabler. Däremot kunde hypotesen om att det uppstår en moderniseringseffekt varken bekräftas eller avfärdas. Av de sex förklarandevariabler har tre exkluderats pga. låga signifikansnivåer samt en av de signifikanta variabler uppvisade en motsatt relation med demokrati än den som antogs av hypotesen. De erhållna resultaten måste ses i ljuset av ett bristande statistisk underlag, av vilket endast ett fåtal observationer kunnat användas i de olika regressionsanalyserna.

    Den första petropolitiska lagen: en statistisk analys av ett högre råoljepris och demokratisk utveckling hos ett antal petropolitiska stater2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to, with proper statistical methods, investigate so called ”The First Law of Petropolitics”. The First Law of Petropolitics postulates that there exists a negative correlation between price of oil and pace of freedom in the oil-rich petrolist states. A hypothesis has been formulated based on appropriate theoretical references and a discussion about its causal mechanisms. Thirty three petropolist states have been identified which comprises the whole population. The pace of freedom and the price of oil has been defined and transformed into a quantifiable measure and tested statistically. Variables were coded into a time-series panel-data form which included 939 annual observations for those thirty three petrolist states. The aggregated correlation between dependent and independent variables has been tested with an OLE regression analysis with so called “first-order autocorrelation with panel-specific standard errors”. The first law of petropolitics also has been individually tested for each petrolist state. The results from the aggregate regression suggest that there exists a weak, with 95 % statistically significant, positive correlation between a dependent and an independent variables. When each petrolist state has been regressed individually the results showed that only 16 of 33 states had significant levels of correlation. Five of those states had a negative correlation, while other eleven states had a positive correlation. The hypothesis has therefore been falsified. The low R2 –value obtained in both tests and autocorrelation problems suggest that a further investigation of the First Law of Petropolitics is necessary in order to secure the obtained results.

    Theories of the Policy Process: Contemporary Scholarship and Future Directions2014In: Policy Studies Journal, ISSN 0190-292X, E-ISSN 1541-0072, Vol. 42, no Supplement issue s1, p. s12-s32Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The object of policy research is the understanding of the interaction among the machinery of the state, political actors, and the public. To facilitate this understanding, a number of complementary theories have developed in the course of more than two decades. This article reviews recent scholarship on the established theories of the policy process, mostly published in 2011 and 2012. Additionally, scholarship extending these theories is identified and new theories of policy process are discussed. This review finds that the established theories have generated substantive scholarship during the period under review and have also been the springboard for much of the recent thinking in policy research.

    Conducting creativity in the periphery of Sweden: A bottom-up path towards territorial cohesion2013In: Creative Industries Journal, ISSN 1751-0694, E-ISSN 1751-0708, Vol. 5, no 1&2, p. 119-137Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Socio-economic cohesion has been a foundational overarching objective of the European Union. The European Union’s recent enlargement, not to mention the worldwide economic downturn, persisting asymmetries of globalization and deindustrialization have deepened existing cleavages and accentuated persisting effects of unbalanced development. The mainstreaming of the sustainability concept and the ascendance of creativity and innovation as regional development tools have caused municipalities and regions to explore ‘soft’ strategies aimed at fostering culture and creativity in order to revive their image and their economies. A shift in the thinking about cohesion policy after the publication of the Fifth Cohesion Report in November 2010 has signalled the need for European municipalities and regions to focus on bottom-up strategies so as to compliment top-down redistributional arrangements as paths towards regional development. This article focuses on the concept of territorial cohesion as spatial justice and its implications for the sparsely populated Swedish northern periphery. The aim of this study was to investigate the value of cultural industries (CIs) as a regional policy tool in the periphery in the context of justice, sustainability and the three dimensions of territorial cohesion: territorial identity, territorial efficiency and territorial quality. Findings suggest that viewing CIs as tools towards regional development in the periphery follows the tenets of (spatial) justice, sustainability and the dimensions of territorial cohesion.

    Barn utan rösträtt: En demokratiteoretisk analys av demos omfattning och åldersstrecket2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Barn utgör idag en femtedel av Sveriges befolkning men står likväl utan rösträtt. Denna studie undersöker på vilka grunder vi kan utesluta personer från demos, dvs. det styrande folket i demokratin, och vilka konsekvenser det får för åldersstrecket, vårt sista rösträttsstreck.

     

    Studien utförs från tre perspektiv; empiriskt (är), normativt (bör vara), och konstruktivt (kan vara). Som material används dels rösträttshistorik och offentligt tryck, dels böcker, artiklar och andra resonemang om demokratins utformning. I den empiriska genomgången ser vi hur rösträtten gradvis utvecklats från 1866, från att först innefatta en mängd spärrar mot deltagande till att idag endast avgränsas med åldersstrecket. Dessutom ser vi hur åldersstrecket förändrats och var debatten i rösträttsfrågan står idag. Den normativa analysen presenterar sedan en modifierad princip för demos omfattning och diskuterar alternativ till åldersstrecket samt enligt vilka principer det bör utformas.

    Avslutningsvis föreslås i det konstruktiva kapitlet en sänkt åldersgräns med en tydlig koppling till kompetens. Studien diskuterar även möjligheten att införa ett frivilligt kompetensprov för att kompetenta barn under åldersgränsen ska kunna få rösträtt tidigare.

    Comparison of Econometric Modelling of Demand for Domestic and International Tourism: Swedish Data2007In: Current Issues in Tourism, ISSN 1368-3500, E-ISSN 1747-7603, Vol. 10, no 4, p. 323-342Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to identify functions for the domestic and international demand for tourism in the objective 6 region in Sweden (SW:6), in order to understand how tourism demand relates to the key macroeconomic variables and other variables such as real income, nominal and real exchange rate, price level and the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. An econometrics model is used to estimate the domestic tourism demand in SW:6. Monthly data for the period 1980–1998 are used. The results do not indicate any statistically significant effect of income, exchange rate or the Chernobyl nuclear disaster on the domestic tourism demand. Meanwhile, the consumer price index (CPI) and weather condition variables are found to have a rather significant effect on the domestic tourism demand. In this paper we also use a cointegration analysis to estimate the long-term relationship between monthly flows to SW:6 from the USA, the UK, Germany, Finland, Norway and Denmark, and factors such as income, CPI and exchange rate that influence arrivals. Monthly time series data for the period 1980–1998 are also used for this purpose. The estimated model does not indicate any statistically significant effect of the Chernobyl nuclear accident and the Gulf war on international tourism demand; on the other hand, significant effects of income, exchange rate and CPI on international tourism demand are found. The estimation and diagnostic testing strategy supports the specification of both models. When comparing these two parts of the study, regarding the domestic demand for tourism, we found the CPI, lags of the dependent variable and several of the monthly dummy variables that stand for the seasonal effects, to have significant effects on the number of visitors. On the other hand, we find income, exchange and CPI have a great influence on international tourism demand.

    Pathways to Politics: How Media System Characteristics Can Influence Socioeconomic Gaps in Political Participation2010In: Harvard Internation Journal of Press/Politics, ISSN 1081-180X, E-ISSN 1531-328X, Vol. 15, no 3, p. 295-318Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article addresses a key democratic question that has not beenfully answered by political communication research: How do the news media influence gaps in participation between socioeconomic groups? The main purpose is to develop and propose an institutional framework for analyzing how the news media influence participation gaps in different countries. It is argued that past research on media malaise and mobilization effects has not paid attention to the joint influence of two media system characteristics:(1) the strength of media institutions with respect to influencingpolitical participation and (2) the distinctiveness of their population base. European Social Survey data from four democratic corporatist countries is used to analyze both these dimensions of the institutional framework. The results indicate that newspapers and television news might have different influences on participation gaps in these countries, and the findings are discussed in light ofthe specific media system characteristics of democratic corporatist countries. Finally, some suggestions for future cross-national comparative research based on the proposed institutional framework are discussed.

    Media Malaise or a Virtuous Circle?: Exploring the Causal Relationships Between News Media Exposure, Political News Attention and Political Interest2010In: European Journal of Political Research, ISSN 0304-4130, E-ISSN 1475-6765, Vol. 49, no 5, p. 575-597Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Being politically interested is one of the most important norms from a democratic perspective, as it is a crucial antecedent for voting, political knowledge, civic and political participation, and attentiveness to political information. However, only limited research has focused on the relationship between media use and political interest, despite the notion that modern politics is mediated politics. Even more important is the fact that the causal relationship between media use and political interest still has not been firmly established. Against this background, the purpose of this study is to investigate the causal relationship between news media use and political interest.The results show that there are indeed causal and reciprocal relationships between political interest and attention to political news, and between political interest and exposure to some, but not all, news media. Overall these results lend stronger support to the perspective of media mobilisation theories than media malaise theories.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose with this essay was to examine how the European Union is working totransfer norms to states they signed an agreement with and provide support for inframe of the Barcelona process and the Tacis programme. The theory which weused was Ian Manners (PhD in Political Science) theory of "the EU as a uniquenormative power". The aim was to examine whether the EU - which Manners mean- has had a normative power to influence states to change. We used a qualitativeapproach through the use of a multiple case study and qualitative text and contentanalysis. The States which formed the basis of our study were within the BarcelonaProcess; Morocco and Tunisia as well as Azerbaijan and Armenia funded by theTacis programme. To this end, we were to answer the following questions: Can weidentify transfer of norms in the written bilateral agreements with these states, andare there any normative demands? Can we on the basis of our study answerwhether the EU holds a normative power to influence these countries to change, inaccordance with the normative theory? The agreements that we studied was thebilateral agreements that the EU signed with these States. In order to makeManners five norms (peace, freedom, democracy, rule of law and human rights),which he argues that EU is based on measurable; we used the Freedom Housefreedom index, and also by a historical study the development of the country. Theresults we found were the following; in all the studied bilateral agreements wefound clear - but to varying degrees - the transfer of norms. Although it differs indegree of regulatory requirements and also in the formulation of how the country iscommitted to abide by and comply with the normative requirements differaccording to the agreements, we can find the so-called "carrot and stickrelationship" that Manners believes that the EU use in the transfer of norms. Threeof the states that we investigated under the Freedom House freedom index did notdeveloped in a democratic way did, and the positive steps taken cannot be directlytraced back to the EU's efforts. It may also be due to other States or other forcesinfluence. We can’t, through our study confirm that Manners is right in these statesbut we can’t either rule out the possibility that the EU through the writtenagreements has changed the norms of the state in question, although progressseems to go very slowly.

    Civil-militär samverkan - men när?2008Student thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Since the end of the cold war, military interventions have shifted from concerning only to win peace in their operation areas towards start helping the society to rebuild the capacity for development and democracy after the end of the armed conflict. This is made through a large diversity of organisations and actors of various kind with a large range of activities and goals. For the best possible efficiency it could be assumed that these actors should gain from cooperating and working together since their overall intentions are the same. This is not the case though and for this there are several different reasons. It do occur civil-military relations in a couple of areas of operation and the purpose of this study was to explore in which of these the relations are more or less suitable; politics and diplomacy, security, humanitarian aid, reconstruction and peacebuilding. This was done through analyses of litterature on the subject and through a few interviews with experienced personell. The material is derived from scientific research, individual and independent reports but also from statements and comments from those who have actually been on the field. The study also investigated how the links and relations in those networks the actors on the field theater belong to can explain the problems and possibilities. There is no clear answer of which area of operation is most suitable for civil-military relations, but the areas for security and reconstruction have the best possibilities to succeed in achieving their goals if coordination and education about long term consequences are dealt with. The humanitarian aid is the area that is most riskful to perform cooperation within since it could be harmful for the relations of participating actors as well as for the long-term peacebuilding. It is necessary in certain situations though. The need for further coordination and education is emphasized to be held in the arenas that preceeds the field work. This is also what the result from the network analysis gives. All links between actors are important in the field area of an international operation, wether they are strong or weak. They give the possibility to bring the organisations together and increase the knowledge about eachother and also create an understanding for the different types of organisations goals and methods. This will in the long run create conditions for improved coordination and cooperation and thus stronger peacebuilding efforts.

    A Governance Perspective on Destination Development: Exploring partnerships, clusters and innovation systems2005In: Tourism review, ISSN 1660-5373, Vol. 60, no 2, p. 32-37Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper deals with partnerships, clusters and innovation systems from a governance perspective. Very little tourism research has used this perspective, and relatively little attention has been brought to the two latter of the mentioned models. It is argued that the governance perspective makes sense when dealing with these models in the tourist destination context. As will be shown, the models draw attention to different features of governance and even suggest different forms of governance and government involvement. It also concludes that the partnership perspective makes sense in basically all tourist destinations, while fewer qualify for the cluster model, and even fewer for the innovation system model. Empirical observations are drawn from different studies of the Swedish ski resort of Are.

    From government to governance: regional partnerships in Sweden2001In: Regional and Federal Studies, ISSN 1359-7566, Vol. 11, no 2, p. 25-42Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Private-public partnership is a key concept for understanding the transformation of regional governance in Sweden. The introduction of Regional Growth Agreements (RGAs) as a new element of industrial policy is the latest illustration of this development. This article analyses the emergence of regional partnerships in the processing of RGAs in Swedish regions. Questions dealt with concern consequences for the public-private balance, democratic accountability, and the pressure for regional reforms. The results reveal that regional partnerships seem ready to take greater responsibility in the field of industrial policy, but also raise questions about who should be included and who is accountable. It is also questionable whether coherent regions will emerge before substantial reforms of regional government are implemented to match more spontaneous processes of regionalization.
