Abstract [en]

We identify four patterns of diffusion that are likely to explain how trends in death penalty usage spread among countries. The first is geographic proximity, which creates dependency relations between nations that in turn affect the spread of changes in death penalty regimes. The second is global diffusion, meaning processes that spread ideas globally. The third is cultural homogeneity, which can be expected to be conducive for diffusion; studies show that countries similar in terms of language and religion influence each other to a great extent. Finally, similar colonial heritage, which can establish cultural and institutional ties between countries. This study encompasses all independent countries of the world over the period 1800 to 2021. In addition to measures of diffusion, a number of control variables are introduced. Relationships are measured using statistical techniques complemented by qualitative analyses.

Abstract [sv]

Under sista åren har samhällets insatser för att informera och motivera invånarna i Sverige till hemberedskap intensifierats. Men vilka medborgare är det som engagerar sig och som väljer att ”lyssna” till de statliga kampanjerna? Resultaten i detta kapitel av den nationella SOM-undersökningen visar att många lyssnar, intresserar och engagerar sig i linje med statens önskningar. Men alla lyder förstås inte myndigheterna blint, åtminstone inte när det kommer till att se om sin fysiska hemberedskap. När det gäller nivån på engagemanget hos olika medborgargrupper kvarstår – eller möjligen förstärks – klassiska klyftor kopplade till social bakgrund, men också beroende på sådant som graden av politiskt engagemang, tillit till andra människor samt exempelvis förtroendet för myndigheter. De individer som ofta bedöms ha bättre förutsättningar i grunden för att möta samhällskriser utan samhällets hjälp, är också de som visar de jämförelsevis högsta engagemangsnivåerna i den statliga hemberedskapsdiskursen, i de oroliga kampanj- och kristiderna.

Abstract [en]

Public organisations are starting to show an interest in automated decision-making (ADM). So far, existing research focuses on the governmental perspective on this phenomenon. Less attention is paid to citizens' views on ADM. The aim of this study is to provide empirical insights into citizen awareness of and beliefs about ADM in public-sector services. To this end, we participated in an annual national survey in Sweden carried out by the SOM Institute at Gothenburg University concluding that a minority of the citizens know about the use of ADM in public-sector services. Furthermore, when computers instead of civil servants make decisions in the public-sector, citizens expect decisions by computers to become less legally secure but more impartial. They also expect ADM to take personal circumstances into account to a lesser degree and become less transparent. Finally, we found that citizens with that awareness expect decisions by computers to become more reliable and impartial. Based on our empirical findings in relation to previous research, we suggest four hypotheses on citizen's awareness and beliefs about public-sector ADM.

Abstract [en]

In this chapter, the authors argue for more developed conceptual, theoretical and measurement elaboration of political awareness. They claim that political awareness has relevance in more situations than previous studies have assumed. The chapter gives an overview of the conventional definition and model, which claims the relevance of political awareness for attitude formation. The seminal work of Zaller (The nature and origins of mass opinion, Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1992) is in focus for the overview. The authors challenge his definition by introducing a new conceptual framework of political awareness that consists of three dimensions: (a) political attentiveness, (b) political knowledge and (c) political understanding. Furthermore, they present theoretical and methodological contributions from the chapter in the anthology. These contributions introduce new ideas about the significance of political awareness and new ways to explore political awareness with survey items and comparative design.

Abstract [en]

Purpose: This paper aims to investigate the connection between different perceived organizational cultures and information security policy compliance among white-collar workers.

Design/methodology/approach: The survey using the Organizational Culture Assessment Instrument was sent to white-collar workers in Sweden (n = 674), asking about compliance with information security policies. The survey instrument is an operationalization of the Competing Values Framework that distinguishes between four different types of organizational culture: clan, adhocracy,market and bureaucracy.

Findings: The results indicate that organizational cultures with an internal focus are positively related to employees’ information security policy compliance. Differences in organizational culture with regards to control and flexibility seem to have less effect. The analysis shows that a bureaucratic form of organizational culture is most fruitful for fostering employees’ information security policy compliance.

Research limitations/implications: The results suggest that differences in organizational culture are important for employees’ information security policy compliance. This justifies further investigating the mechanisms linking organizational culture to information security compliance.

Practical implications: Practitioners should be aware that the different organizational cultures do matter for employees’ information security compliance. In businesses and the public sector, the authors see a development toward customer orientation and marketization, i.e. the opposite an internal focus, that may have negative ramifications for the information security of organizations.

Originality/value: Few information security policy compliance studies exist on the consequences of different organizational/information cultures.
