    Public e-services from inside: A case study on technology's influence on work conditions in a government agency2013In: International Journal of Public Sector Management, ISSN 0951-3558, E-ISSN 1758-6666, Vol. 26, no 6, p. 455-468Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to discuss the consequences of citizens' increased use of public e-services for agency employees' work situation. Design/methodology/approach: In order to accomplish the purpose of the paper the authors focus on the way in which the increased use of public e-services also implies internal process and routine changes in public administration. The authors analyze work conditions for case officers at a government agency in Sweden by applying occupational ideal types to identify the specific work conditions in the studied case. The case study is based on qualitative data collected with a back office perspective. Findings: The findings indicate a new hybrid organization where the increased use of e-services challenges earlier demands for competence. The transformation of e-government has implications for job codification, rule observation, job specification, and interaction with the general public. Originality/value: The paper extends the knowledge on how the increased use of public e-services affects back-office work conditions, with an increased high level of complexity in work content, but with low level of work autonomy. It argues that studying back-office work conditions is an important management issue in public administration research as well as practice. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.

    Multi-channel service management in Public Sector: Three interpretative frames illustrating e-government and work practice in a swedish state agency.2014In: Electronic Journal of e-Government, ISSN 1479-439X, E-ISSN 1479-439X, Vol. 12, no 1, p. 112-125Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In order to deliver services to citizens, public sector agencies of today offer various types of channels for interaction. In this article we aim to develop an understanding of the reciprocal relation between multi‑channel services and work prac tice. By showing how actors at different organizational levels in an agency differ in their interpretation of multi‑channel services we have generated knowledge that is essential in multi‑channel strategy formulation. The study illustrates an example of a n agency that works actively and in a mature way with e‑government and e‑services. This qualitative case study illustrates that the top level management, middle management and the case officers need to confront and discuss their understanding of e‑governm ent and their work practice in order to reach a situation where strategies actually are influencing daily work more explicitly. An important aspect is the decision to adopt an internal or external perspective on multi‑channel service management. The resul t of this decision might be to view multi‑channel service management as a way of reaching either internal agency efficiency or external citizen benefits.

    Mobilizing Gender Research Challenges and Strategies2013Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this newest volume in the FGV's series of working papers, we present our current research strategy 2013-2015 together with a broad range of examples from the research being carried out within the different research area that the strategy is defining. The research environment at the FGV is characterized by intellectual curiosity both in terms of our own research as well that of others. Our approach is constructively critical, always applied in an open, welcoming, and inclusive spirit, since it is our firm belief that creative research environments require room for diversity. The multidisciplinary research at the FGV currently falls into three major research areas: Gender and normalization in neo-liberal times; A lifetime of gendered cultures; and Gender and working conditions. One joint interest for all three areas is to explore gendered institutional practices and discourses, and new types of techniques of governing during the restructuring of the Swedish welfare state in an advanced liberal context.  Since FGV:s mission is to mobilize and promote gender studies in all the diverse forms that it is practiced at Mid Sweden University the proposition and the contributions to this publication are by necessity varied. We have contributions from fields such as gender studies, literary studies, sociology, geography, ethnography, and public health.

    Gender Equality and Beyond: At the Crossroads of Neoliberalism, Anti-Gender Movements, "European" Values, and Normative Reiterations in the Nordic Model2018In: Social Inclusion, ISSN 2183-2803, E-ISSN 2183-2803, Vol. 6, no 4, p. 1-7Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The social-democratic-inspired "Nordic model", with its agenda for gender equality, has been an important example for the development of political interventions to transform society but at the same time, it has functioned as an emerging gender normalising and stabilising structure. In the last decade it has also become the focus of antigender movements and ethno-nationalistic parties both as emblematic for the Nordic nations as well as a threat that must be destroyed to save the nation. This issue will elaborate further on gender equality as a node, a floating signifier in powerful and often contradictory discourses. We are inspired by scholarships of hope in a dialogue with articles that search for realistic utopias that might be considered to be "beyond gender equality". The included articles engage with the messiness and crossroads of gender equality in relation to the work-line, territories, neo-liberalism, religion, the crisis of solidarity and the success of anti-genderism agenda.

    Normalising welfare boundaries: A feminist analysis of Swedish municipalities' handling of vulnerable EU citizens2017In: Társadalmi Nemek Tudománya Interdiszciplináris eFolyóirat, ISSN 2062-7084, Vol. 7, no 2, p. 24-40Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The so-called freedom of movement granted to EU citizens has made it easier for economically deprived EU citizens to seek their livelihood beyond the borders of their homelands and this has created one of our time’s most socially excluded groups. In Sweden, over the recent years they have come to be known as vulnerable EU citizens. This article analyses what happens when there are no unified regulations as to how Swedish municipalities should prevent social exclusion among those who are not Swedish citizens. Our purpose is to study how officials and politicians normalize certain beliefs with regard to the (im)possibility of providing support to socially-excluded EU citizens residing in their municipalities. The material used in the study is interviews with officials and politicians in Västernorrland, a region of northern Sweden. The study shows that in the absence of common guidelines the normalization of Swedish citizenship has taken place as the basis of the rights to welfare. It is Swedish citizenship that provides you with access to the community; at the same time, it is this community which must be guarded. Prohibition of EU citizens is commonly legitimized by a concern for the municipality’s citizens as if the closing down of the settlements makes social exclusion seize to exist or at least seize to be a problem for the municipalities. This narrative illustrates that it is the settlements and their flaws, rather than the inhabitants’ social exclusion in a broader context that are perceived as problematic.

    Intersectional Approaches in Health-Risk Research: A Critical Review2014In: Sociology Compass, ISSN 1751-9020, E-ISSN 1751-9020, Vol. 8, no 9, p. 1112-1126Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The overall aim of this article is to explore how the intersectional approach is used in health-riskresearch. The concept has been recognized in health-risk research since the early 2000s, but not asmuch as in the broader field of health-inequality studies. However, in the past 5 years, Social Scienceand Medicine has published a series of review articles that argue for the necessity of bringingintersectional perspectives to the field of health-risk studies more generally and quantitative healthriskresearch in particular. Asking what it means for health-risk researchers to practiseintersectionality shows the implications of translating a theoretical approach across fields anddisciplines. When applying intersectional theory in relation to health-risks, the theoretical conceptualizationof health and risk are often very limited and treated as fixed categories – something thatbecomes problematic when taken within an intersectional framework. This does not mean that thiswork is unimportant, but rather that the link between theoretically driven intersectionality andempirical-focused health research is weak. In order to overcome the dividing lines of health-riskresearch and intersectionality, we argue for a new approach that echoes the ‘doing gender’ of genderstudies: doing risk.

    Mapping of Risk Perception and Assessment: Inspiring Methods for National Level Risk Mapping in Sweden2018Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Our modern society is exposed to multiple hazards and risks. To manage these successfully, it is important to have a good overview of the risks that potentially affect our society and how they are perceived and valued. This pilot study investigated possible ways of mapping and analysing risks that Swedish society and its inhabitants are exposed to and aware of. The aim was to capture complementary perspectives on accidents and crises, and to provide a point of departure for future planning and data collection strategies. To achieve this, previous studies are mapped and critically assessed and an example of a method of analysis is presented. The following questions have guided the work: 1) What methods are currently available to describe risks at a broader societal level? 2) What are the limitations, advantages and disadvantages of these existing methods? 3) Which of these methods are of relevance to Sweden? Summarizing previous studies, the report includes examples of methods, structures and data visualizations for mapping risks nationally or in larger regions. The report analyses 11 types of existing study or report as a source of inspiration and to scope existing gaps for potential improvement. The report makes recommendations for national level risk mapping in a Swedish context, supported by an empirical example.

    Media Portrayals of Unaccompanied Child Refugees: Exploring the security/migration nexus through the gendering and racialization of risks in Sweden.2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this paper is to develop a theoretical understanding of how the discursive construction of risk in relation to the migration/security nexus is entangled with processes of othering. Within the Swedish discourse about unaccompanied refugee minors, and its relation to masculinity, racism, and nationalism, risk framing practices are playing a central role. In the Swedish context the word ‘immigrant’ is frequently discussed in terms of risk, and is often associated with discourses of integration, segregation, and ‘Outsiderhood’, especially for people with an origin in Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. This type of discourses act through moral norms; however, the imperative of security measures as a response to risk is carried out in relation to collective subject positions of dangerous ‘others’ and/or (un)precarious lives.

    Drawing on Hunt’s argument (2003) about the hybridity of moral discourses and discourses of risk, we argue that morally infused discourses of risk are central in order to understand the migrant/security nexus, used as a means to create difference and distinction. By analysing how risk is intertwined with the processes whereby age, gender and race, are constructed in relation to unaccompanied child refugees our analyses show how logics of risk are intersecting with discourses of the immigrant to produce a particular framing of these children as ‘at risk’ and/or ‘risky’. Unaccompanied refugees (boys) are constructed as potential threats, as terrorists among other things, while unaccompanied girls are seen as at risk of being abused among other things. The migrant/security nexus has specific gendered conceptions that gives rise to particular strategies designed to profile and manage those labelled as ‘risky’ and at risk which also reproduce the racist formations in the Swedish society.

    Doing and undoing risk: The mutual constitution of risk and heteronormativity in contemporary society2017In: Journal of Risk Research, ISSN 1366-9877, E-ISSN 1466-4461, Vol. 20, no 3, p. 418-432Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper develops the concepts of ‘doing’ and ‘undoing’ risk, a new approach to risk research that echoes the ‘doing gender’ of gender studies. In this way, we combine intersectional and risk theory and apply the new perspective to empirical material. To better explore the doing and undoing, or the performance, of risk, we will refer to practices that simultaneously (re)produce and hide socio-political norms and positions, played out in contemporary, hierarchical relations of power and knowledge. The aim is to develop a theoretical understanding of doing and undoing risk. The study makes use of transcripts from five focus group interviews with men and women, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people of different ages living in Sweden to develop a theory of ‘doing risk’. The doing of risk of our informants takes place within the frame of a hegemonic heteronormativity. The way that risks are perceived and done in everyday life therefore always needs to be read within a frame of prevailing structures of power. This counts for all of us as we are all part of the hegemonic power structures and thereby are both subject to the intersecting doings of risk and performatively reproducing these power structures in practice.

    Everyday places, heterosexist spaces, and risk in contemporary Sweden2016In: Culture, Health and Sexuality, ISSN 1369-1058, E-ISSN 1464-5351, Vol. 18, no 1, p. 45-47Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Subjective feelings of risk are a central feature of everyday life, and evidence shows that people who do not conform to contemporary normative notions are often more exposed to everyday risks than others. Despite this, normative notions are rarely acknowledged as risk objects. By drawing on the theory of ‘doing’ and ‘undoing’ risk, which combines intersectional and risk theory, this study contributes new perspectives on the everyday risks in contemporary society that face people who many would label as being ‘at risk’ – lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. The study consists of five focus group interviews with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people of different ages in Sweden. Findings pinpoint risks and how these are done and un-done in different spheres of interviewees’ lives: the emotional risks prevailing in their private lives; the risk of discrimination at work and in relations with other institutions; and the risk of violence and harassment in public places. These risks are all related to the heteronormative order in which the mere fact of being lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender is perceived as a risk.

    (Re)assembling the ‘Normal’ in Neoliberal Policy Discourses: Tracing Gender Relations in the Age of Risk2015In: Nordic Journal of Social Research, ISSN 1892-2783, E-ISSN 1892-2783, Vol. 6, p. 24-43Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this article is to explore through a reading of an official Swedish policy document what questions and challenges such a document poses for feminist theory by the way the 'normal' is (re)assembled in accordance with what others have called the risk politics of advanced liberalism. The intensified focus on risk in neoliberalism has seen responsibility move from the state to individuals, and old divisions between society and market as well as between civil society and state are being refigured. The argument put forward here is that current modes of governance tend to neglect the complexities of present-day life courses when using a gender-'neutral' approach to social policy that is in fact the work of a gender regime.

    Abstract [sv]

    Abstrakt

    Dagligen sänder massmedia ut mängderriskrapporteringar angående potentiellt hälsofarliga livsmedel. Denhär kvalitativa studieundersöker hur läsare uppfattar och påverkas av kvällstidningarnas livsmedelsrelaterade riskrapportering.Studiens deltagare består av tio personer vilkakontinuerlig läser kvällstidningar, respondenternaärmellan25-35 år gamla.Studiensempiriska materialbaseras på tio semistrukturerade telefonintervjuer. Författarna har använt sig av en tematisk analys då de analyserat den insamlade empirin, studiens resultat har tolkats utifrån studiens teoretiska referensram vilken inkluderar olika teorier angående tillit och dess existens. Bland dessa teorier finns bland annat Kasperson, Golding ochTuler´s teori, teorin om dubbelriktad riskkommunikation samt framing. Studien har påvisat att läsarna upplever att kvällstidningarnas journalister tenderar att överdramatisera risker,utföra bristande saklighetskontroller och inneha bristande kompetens inom riskområdet.Studien har även visat att respondenterna har låg tillit till kvällstidningarnaoch deras livsmedelsrelaterade riskrapportering men att de trots detta påverkas av den. Riskrapporteringen tenderar att väcka en oro hos respondenterna och får dem att agera. Respondenterna tenderade att sluta inhandla de särskilda livsmedel som inkluderats i kvällstidningarnas riskrapportering och/ eller välja att uppsöka andra nyhetskällor för att tillgåmer information.

    Navet: An Ethnographic Approach to an Open Drug Market2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Aims - This thesis describes an open drug market and its suspected drug users in a Swedish city. This drug market is located at the local bus hub called Navet, in the city of Sundsvall, which has a reputation of being a place to avoid because of the substance abuse and accompanied crime. The aim was to disclose what happens at Navet that is associated with drug related activities. Method - two observers visited Navet from November 2016 to March 2017 at different times of the day with an ethnographic approach to take notes of the daily life at Navet, using their own experiences as basis for the description and analysis. No interactions with the actors at Navet were initiated by the observers. Results - Navet is more than just adrug market, it also provides a meaningful social aspect for the actors by spending time at Navet granting a feeling of belonging to a group. Four different groups of people were identified, the traveling citizens using Navet for transportation, people using navet as their meeting place without taking part of the drug activities, the suspected drug users and the young suspected drug users. The most frequent and openly used substances was alcohol followed by unspecified pills, other types of illegal substances were suspected to be common at Navet but never witnessed to be consumed. Conclusion - As rumored, Navet is a place where drugs and suspected drug users are present during almost all hours of the day. However, the generally perceived feeling of hostility and danger is exaggerated, contributing to a worse reputation of Navet compared to what can be supported through this study.

    ”Invandrare är ju också utvandrare…”: En kvalitativ studie om högutbildades uppfattningar om invandring.2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna uppsats är att studera uppfattningar om invandring och skapandet av vi och dem genom att problematisera kvantitativ forskning. Vi har använt oss av kvalitativ metod i form av semistrukturerade intervjuer. Forskning visar att klasstillhörighet påverkar människors attityder. Vårt urval i studien är högutbildade med minst kandidatexamen, urvalet motiveras genom att högutbildade generellt har en mer tolerant attityd till invandring. Analys av den insamlade empirin gjordes genom att hitta de bärande teman genom kodning som resulterade i de teoretiska begreppen: etnicitet, vi och dem och klass. Resultatet i studien visar att genom att fördjupa den kvantitativa undersökningen finns fler variabler att ta hänsyn till. I resultatet finns en problematisering kring kultur och religion som både visade att respondenterna ser Sverige som ett mångkulturellt samhälle men även att det finns en oförståelse för andra kulturer och religioner. Resultatet i studien visar att bilden av invandrare kan vara föränderlig samt att boendesegregation och ojämlika villkor på arbetsmarknaden, skapar en diskriminering i samhället.

    Frivårdsinspektörers upplevelser av återfallspreventiva åtgärder för män dömda för partnervåld: En kvalitativ studie utifrån teorin om sociala band2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Partnervåld är ett globalt hälsoproblem och har de senaste årtiondena betraktats som ett samhällsproblem. Partnervåldets omfattning belyser vikten av att arbeta preventivt, där den varierade prevalensen inom och mellan länder indikerar på att våldet inte är ofrånkomligt utan kan förhindras och förebyggas. Preventiva åtgärder kan ske på en primär, sekundär och tertiär nivå där den tertiära nivån har varit studiens fokus. Hirschis teori om sociala band har visat sig vara betydande vid brottsprevention och har påvisats avhålla individer från att begå partnervåld. Utifrån detta och utifrån det bristande vetenskapliga underlaget för preventiva åtgärder mot partnervåld i Sverige, fanns ett intresse att belysa frivårdsinspektörers upplevelser av återfallspreventiva åtgärder för män dömda för partnervåld, utifrån teorin om sociala band. En kvalitativ deduktiv design ansågs lämplig att utgå från då teorin användes som vägledning under studiens utformande. Fyra på förhand valda teman; anknytning, åtagande, delaktighet och övertygelse, med utgångspunkt i Hirschis teori om sociala band, utgjorde grunden för den tematiska analysen där det explicita innehållet analyserades och konceptualiserades. Öppna semistrukturerade telefonintervjuer skedde med tio frivårdsinspektörer från varierande geografiska områden i Sverige. Resultatet belyste teorins applicerbarhet på frivårdsinspektörers upplevelser av återfallspreventiva åtgärder för män dömda för partnervåld. Deltagarna upplevde att alla element i teorin var betydande för att inte återfalla i partnervåld. Vidare upplevdes frivårdens preventionsarbete kunna utvecklas, i enlighet med den teoretiska referensramen för att minimera riskerna att återfalla i partnervåld.

    Care in revolt: Labor conflict, gender, neoliberalism2016Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The present thesis is an exploration of normalization processes and the problem of appropriation in labor conflict. More specifically, it analyses the way contemporary labor conflicts in nursing relate to, and thereby help to illuminate, changes in modes of gender normalization under neoliberalism, and how nurse labor conflict thereby sheds light on wider patterns of labor strife. Analysis shows how a “virtue script” bound up with long-lasting patterns of gender normalization in nursing becomes tangled with forms of abstract labor related to “new public management” reform. Although the restructuring of work threatens public professionals’ autonomy, at the same time, it provides opportunities for resistance through collective action. What is more, this restructuring process facilitates the appropriation by nurses and, by implication, other public workers, of the discourses and ideals that belonged to the ethos of the Keynesian welfare state. However, this is a contradictory process, since the discourses and ideals thus appropriated inhere in modes of labor exploitation and normalization. Analysis indicates that although appropriation risks to reinforce gendered and exploitative ideas about work, the strategy can be a lever of collective mobilization, and one of its possible outcomes is the radical transformation of the entities it takes possession of. This interview study is mainly based on four journal articles, attending to different aspects of an act of collective resignation taken by registered nurses at a Swedish hospital ward. This is an emerging form of collective action and the thesis provides one of the first analyses of this new grassroots and workplace-based phenomenon, which may be considered its particular empirical contribution. On the other hand, the chapters of the cover essay unfold a sustained argument on normalization and appropriation, thereby elaborating theoretical themes broached in the articles. The focal point of this discussion is a certain concept of form, deployed in Marxist and feminist theory, a concept pointing to the identity of thought-forms and practically enacted forms. Further, these forms migrate: they are evoked in practices wherein “the mind is not active as sentient” (Hegel), later to be projected by the mind onto different entities. The results of the discussion thus question common approaches to normalization. In particular, it is untenable to oppose a tacit and internal mode of control where individuals are induced to comply by attaching to identifications (by becoming/being made into subjects) to an overt and external mode reliant on sheer coercion. This matter–form dichotomy should be dissolved, and modes of coercion should be understood to leave subjective imprints—not at the level of identity but at the level of thought’s infrastructure, that is, form.

    Manufacturing dissent: Labor conflict, care work, and the politicization of caring2014In: Nordic Journal of Working Life Studies, ISSN 2245-0157, E-ISSN 2245-0157, Vol. 4, no 1, p. 139-152Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article analyzes the phenomenon of "politicization of caring," observed in studies of nurselabor conflict, in the context of a small-scale episode of conflict at a Swedish hospital ward. Usinganalytical concepts drawn from work on the role of images of gendered ideal workers in managementcultivation of consent, and the method of positioning analysis, it tries to identify the littleresearched discursive practices involved in the politicization of caring. Analysis of interviews withregistered nurses, who took part in a conflict where some of them threatened to resign unlesswages were raised and working conditions improved, shows a range of such strategies: includingproblematizing identities in nursing, expanding the context of caring work, using a discourse of professionalism,and redefining the interpellated image of nursing. Findings indicate that politicizationthus has important effects on the gendering of nursing and the viability of neoliberal restructuringof healthcare work.

    Shop floor power: Opportunity and collectivism in nurses' collective resignations2017In: Nordic Journal of Working Life Studies, ISSN 2245-0157, E-ISSN 2245-0157, Vol. 7, no 4, p. 109-127Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This historical and comparative study attends to the phenomenon of collective resignation by registered nurses in the Swedish health services, with the aim of exploring the existence and utilization of shop floor power. The study uses two kinds of data: incidences of collective resignation since the 1980s are explored using newspaper data; second, two cases of collective resignation are comparatively explored using interview data. First is analyzed how contemporary opportunities to take this form of worker action arose. Then is analyzed how differences between the two cases shed further light on opportunity structures in different contexts of nursing, and on nurses' ability to organize the resignation threat as a collective act. The study clarifies the existence of nurses' shop floor power as it relates to opportunity structures, while also pointing to the significance of the extent of collectivism when nurses challenge employers by threatening this kind of industrial action.

    The ideal worker as real abstraction: labour conflict and subjectivity in nursing2015In: Work, Employment and Society, ISSN 0950-0170, E-ISSN 1469-8722, Vol. 29, no 5, p. 792-807Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article interrogates the significance of the ideal nurse as an ideal worker in a context of labour conflict, using interview material from a study of an episode of conflict ending in the collective resignation of a group of nurses from a Swedish hospital ward. It puts forward the thesis that this ideal worker is best understood as an abstraction that achieves practical truth', that is, as a hypostasized practice or a real abstraction'. Hence, this management ideology exceeds strictly discursive dimensions. The analysis points to an enactment at the level of work practice prior to any explicit articulation of this ideology. Analysis attends to positioning on collective action, the identity work this positioning entailed and the truth' of nursing summoned therein, pointing to the ubiquity of the ideal worker in nursing along with its practical enactment.

    Paradoxes of Anti-austerity Protest: Matters of Neoliberalism, Gender, and Subjectivity in a Case of Collective Resignation2017In: Gender, Work and Organization, ISSN 0968-6673, E-ISSN 1468-0432, Vol. 24, no 1, p. 56-68Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyses an episode of collective resignation. Carried out mainly by specialist nurses, this is a proliferating form of worker protest in Sweden that poses a challenge to austerity policy and emerges in a specific industrial-relations context. Mobilizing for collective resignation, activist nurses navigate terrains of neoliberal governance, marketization and flexible labour-market dynamics. The collective resignation is also a form of action underpinned by a discourse of gender equality. Our analysis, which attends to the co-emergence of gendering and subject formation in the narratives of a group of activists and to the use of gender-equality rhetoric in framing collective action, shows how opportunities for collective action arise that also restrain the exercise of agency. In this case, subject formation included contrasting nursing to tropes of archetypical militant workers and negotiating tensions between care and collective action. This involved reproducing and challenging established forms of gendering.

    Swedish Multi-Level Planning System for Critical Infrastructure Protection: The Regional Core2018In: Safety and Reliability: Safe Societies in a Changing World / [ed] Haugen, A.

    Abstract [en]

    With its growing dependence on electricity, modern society faces the risk of cascading failureof interconnected societal functions. To protect societal functions during an event of power shortage,Sweden has implemented a multi-level planning process called STYREL, which involves national-, regional—and local-level actors. As part of the Swedish crisis management system, the regional body operatesas a co-ordinator that organises co-operation and interaction between private and public actors. Thisstudy examines the role of the regional hub in STYREL and the collaboration and co-operation betweenplanning levels. It focuses on the co-ordinator’s perspective and presents evidence from interviews and asurvey among planners at County Administrative Boards, entrusted with the supervision and executionof STYREL within their regional area of responsibility. This paper indicates that the regional co-ordinatorlacks the awareness, knowledge and resources to fulfil its core function in the national planning for criticalinfrastructure protection.

    Collaboration and Decision-making in Response Planning for Power Shortages: The Swedish Policy2017Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Electricity is a key resource for the majority of societal functions and constitutes an important sector in the critical infrastructure of modern societies. Disturbances in power supply can have cascading effects on interdependent public sectors and ordinary citizens. However, it seems nearly impossible to completely prevent the occurrence of power shortages. Strategies to address temporary power losses are therefore essential. This paper aims to increase the understanding of national policies to manage the early consequences of power outages. Therefore, we critically review the Swedish national policy called Styrel as part of Swedish Crisis Management System. In the scientific literature, there are few examples similar to Styrel for handling emergencies in the electricity system. Particularly, we seek to discover related risks and benefits, conditions and constraints, as well as effects for specific stakeholders. We argue that the approach cannot yet be considered as fully developed. Three areas requiring improvement are identified. First, the scope and terms of the process must be specified. Second, (better) quality management seems necessary. Third, people responsible for identifying and prioritizing power consumers critical to local society need better decision aid. Improvements could facilitate risk-communication and collaboration among actors as well as decision-making and organisational learning.

    Blackout ahead: Methodological Concerns in Studies of National Crisis Management2018Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper highlights the difficulties in the studies of the crisis management system. Our focus is on the Swedish planning process in the case of power shortage, called Styrel. Our paper depart from a research project entitled From Authorities to Citizens and Back. The aim of the project is to increase the knowledge on the decision-making processes within Styrel with a focus on how the actors co-operate within the planning process, and what consequences the priorities of socially important objects have for society and its citizens. Methodologically, the project is based on document studies, interview with security officers in forty-seven municipalities, three coordinators at the County administrative board (CAB), and representatives for local power grid companies. Furthermore, a survey has been conducted with all coordinators at the CAB. The intended objective has also been to take part of the planning documents in order to investigate if there are any differences between how the objects were prioritized by the municipalities and how they were finally prioritized. Our experience from the study reviles problems with availability of relevant planning material, lack of knowledge due to deficient continuity at the local level regarding those responsible for Styrel, and finally difficulties in following individual objects during the planning process.

    Det ideella arbetets betydelse i ett individualiserat samhälle: en intervjustudie med studenter2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studenter har sedan 1960-talet har uppmuntrats till att engagera sig ideellt under sin skoltid, däremot kan man se att syftet med det ideella arbetet hos studenter har förändrats i takt med att samhället har förändrats. I Sverige finns det många olika ideella hjälporganisationer som studenter kan engagera sig inom. Syftet med studien var att studera hur studenter som arbetar ideellt beskriver betydelsen av det ideella arbetet. Studien belyser också hur studenterna upplever att det ideella arbetet har för betydelse i samhället och vilka samhällsfaktorer som bidragit till deras intresse för ideellt arbete. Studien sätter det ideella arbetet i relation till lönearbetet och studenterna får möjlighet att beskriva vilka förutsättningar det finns i samhället för att utföra det ideella arbetet. Resultatet har analyserats med hjälp av begreppen individualisering, identitetsskapandet och arbetslivets krav. Studiens metod var semistrukturerade intervjuer med studenter. Resultatet visade att individualiseringen har skapat en diskursiv kamp inom ideellt arbete, vad de ska vara samt för vem man gör det. Idag är det ideella arbetet en individuell aktivitet som i första hand utförs utifrån ett egoistiskt motiv, av en grupp människor med ett kollektivt intresse om att bli anställningsbar och konkurrens kraftig för att nå ett lönearbete.

    Abstract [en]

    Large scale projects tasked with designing infrastructures and urban networks resilient to disasters face a common challenge, i.e. the need to address concomitant technological issues and social problems. What is more, conflicting technologies and the diverse philosophical underpinnings of distinct academic disciplines pose difficulties in the collaboration among experts of different fields. These difficulties and possible ways to tackle them have been highlighted by a questionnaire developed in the framework of an EU project named ANDROID (Academic Network for Disaster Resilience to Optimize Educational Development). More specifically, the project investigated the level of interdisciplinary work in current research and educational projects within the field of disaster resilience. Findings illustrate the number and types of disciplines involved in disaster resilience projects and suggest that a higher degree of integration between different disciplines in tertiary education could promote a transdisciplinary approach to disaster resilience, resulting in design efficiency and innovation.
