Abstract [en]

The post-seminar gathering took place at one o’clock in the cafeteria. People were drinking, and many colleagues were attending. The senior faculty member walked up to a female colleague, placed his hand on her bum and groped her. This happened in front of everyone. Up to this point she had been socializing and taking part in the event. When she was groped, she froze, went to the back of the room and sat down. She probably felt violated and ashamed, I think. I saw her try to make eye contact with her colleagues, as if she expected someone to do something. The next day, someone told her in private that she should file a complaint. No open or collective action was taken by any of her colleagues, not even those who saw the groping. She was new to the department and unfamiliar with the procedures for how to file a report or complaint, or to whom. She was also dependent on the senior faculty member, as he was her co-supervisor. She left academia. He stayed, and is now supervising another doctoral student in a project for which he has external funding. (Female junior scholar during #akademiuppropet)

The testimony above exemplifies the 100 real testimonies that were shared in a unsearchable Facebook group with the aim of raising awareness of sexual harassment in Swedish higher education. It is an example of the types of testimonies that formed the basis of what later would be called #akademiuppropet. It can also be seen as a typical testimony, as it shares many of the themes that occur in the real testimonies, such as the dilemma of asymmetric power dynamics in academia, sexist and misogynist organizational cultures, and various kinds of sexual harassment that women in Swedish academia had experienced. The testimonies also included bystanders’ reactions, flawed reporting processes, and women’s feelings of marginalization, disappointment, shame and guilt. The testimonies are consistent with those from other academic organizational contexts, countries and times (see for example Husu, 2000). The consistency of the testimonies is something that I have thought about a great deal since the #metoo movement peaked in November 2017. These thought are presented in this article.

Abstract [en]

In this paper I analyze #akademiuppropet from a digital feminist perspective. Feminist activists are increasingly turning to digital technologies and social media platforms to dialogue, network and organize against sexism, misogyny, harassment and rape (Mendes et al., 2018) and #akademiuppropet is one example where women working in Swedish academic institutions got together to highlight the issue of sexual harassment. Data is gathered through qualitative interviews with 14 women that experienced sexual harassment in academia. During the interviews we talked about what #akademiuppropet and #metoo meant for them, and how they thought it might be a force for change. Results show that the use of social media, as one of many tools in organizing and mobilising the movement, has made it possible to put equal opportunity high on the agenda. This also indicates that many “small whisperings” can be turned into a powerful collective voice – as we have seen with the #metoo movement. Even so, the work is not finished, and we will have to continue to work together in our organizations and with a long-term perspective.

Abstract [en]

This report presents the results from a pedagogical project focusing students’ writing in higher education. Literature in this field conclude that student writing should be integrated in teaching of the subject with a plan for progression. Teachers’ and students’ experience indicate that students write a lot during their education, but only occasionally get concrete feedback on the writing as such. Focus groups with students showed that students found it difficult to write distinct and to differentiate between text genres. The teachers reported lack of ”tools” to help the students to improve their writing. The report suggest a model for the work with students writing based on goal setting; inventory; identifying problem areas; prioritizing; implementation; and follow-up and revision.

Abstract [en]

Statistics made available by the Swedish Migration Agency (SMA) make it possible to follow the outcomes of asylum applications made by unaccompanied children (types of permits, percentage of rejections etc.). Yet, we know little about what unaccompanied children report in asylum procedure, or how their heterogeneous asylum claims influence the possibilities of being approved or rejected. In addition, we do not know if there are differences in reporting between boys and girls, and if so, these potential differences influence the possibility of receiving residency.

We decided to explore what unaccompanied children report using a mixed method approach. Asylum decisions concerning unaccompanied children were first coded inductively. These codes were later merged into larger categories that were analyzed quantitatively by regression analysis. The data sample consisted of 2321 asylum decisions (one calendar year) issued by the SMA. Overall, the results show that female gender has a negative influence on asylum outcomes. This difference is however reduced if the girl has reported a violent death by a next of kin. Moreover, there is an indication that girls report sexual violence to a larger extent than boys. However, the number of girls in the data sample was smaller (14.1 %), so when examining the group of children reporting sexual violence, the reporting by boys was slightly higher (in percentage). The results can provide insights about gender equality in asylum procedure, perceptions of children as active migrants and victimization.

Abstract [en]

In this paper we explore the research literature relating to the guardianship of unaccompanied minors seeking asylum. In particular, we seek to find out what type of dilemmas have been identified by research concerning the guardianship of unaccompanied minors, and the focus that the literature has therefore taken. A comprehensive search of identified databases was conducted. Ultimately, 38 publications were selected for analysis. The review was qualitative and inductive. The results of the review suggest that research has identified and focused on challenges in the form of diverging policy such as gaps and inconsistencies in guardianship institutions, as well as challenges in balancing different objectives concerning the guardianship role, such as conflicting interest in the guardianship assignment or between different actors involved in protecting the child's interest.

The conclusion is that different configurations of guardianship institutions, as well as the identified challenges for practice, appear to be related to the welfare state model. Therefore, future research concerning guardianship for unaccompanied minors needs to move beyond legal sources and policy documents by focusing on empirically informed research on the relationship between child care/protection, principles of assessing the best interest of the child and the welfare state systems.

Abstract [sv]

Jag har tillsammans med mina kollegor vid Örebro Universitet och tillsammans med förläggare på studentlitteratur kommit fram till att det behövs en bok som introducerar personalvetare till Sociologi. Presentationen kommer därför att fokusera på varför denna bok behövs och gå igenom de första två kapitlen i utkastet av boken. Jag ser att boken behövs av två anledningar: 1) För att många studenter inte riktigt verkar greppa varför de behöver sociologin och i så fall ganska sent i utbildningen. Bok behövs således som en tidig introduktion som kan användas tillsammans med annan litteratur för att motivera och öppna upp personalvetarnas sociologiska fantasi. 2) Den behövs också då många lärare examinatorer anser att personalvetarnas sociologiska blick har vissa brister. Jag har ofta hört att examinatorer tycker att personalvetarnas självständiga arbeten i sociologi saknar en kritisk blick på hur organisationer formar individer och speciellt det problematiska i detta formande. Personalvetarnas självständiga arbeten i sociologi präglas allt för ofta av en förgivettagen uppfattning om att organisationens inställning, värderingar och motiv är självklara och också alltigenom goda. Boken som föreslås här syftar därför dels till att lyfta fram viktiga sociologiska perspektiv på personalarbetets praktik samt att samtidigt ge personalvetarna verktyg för att ständigt ifrågasätta dessa praktiker.

Boken riktar sig främst till personalvetarstudenter i sociologi på introduktionsnivå men målet är att den blir en självklar del i litteraturlistorna även på sociologiska kurser på kandidatnivå och kan inspirera det självständiga arbetet.

Abstract [en]

This policy note highlights issues concerning the right to seek asylum raised by a panel of migration experts in Sweden during the annual Swedish Forum for Human Rights in 2016. The discussion took place following Swedish asylum and immigration policy taking an increasingly restrictive turn. Two main themes are identified. The first theme encompasses views on the relationship between the legal framework’s increased restrictiveness and discourses of securitization and explores the possibilities of moving beyond this pattern. The second theme highlights that different professionals and other staff engaged with asylum seekers and refugees can retain a (legal) space to resist repressive activities that challenge their professional code of conduct and personal integrity.
