Abstract [en]

Research on the PR-function is extensive, especially in the US and the UK. The manager-technician dichotomy is well known, but has been challenged by recent research where more nuanced perspectives on PR-managerial roles are displayed. In relation to this complexity of PR-managerial roles the article investigates the function and role Swedish public relations managers perform and play in their organizations. The Swedish case, with its high proportion of PR practitioners employed by public authorities, was used to further explore the complexity of PR work. The empirical data was a survey distributed to a random sample of members of the Swedish Public Relations Association, with a managerial or head/director position, representing all industry/societal sectors. 261 persons completed the survey, giving a response rate of 30 percent. The study confirmed previous research of a more complex picture of the PR-managerial level. One important conclusion was therefore that the simple dichotomy between managers and technicians cannot be used to understand managerial level positions in the public relations context. This complexity was even further emphasized when comparing PR-mangers in the private and the public sector. One challenge pointed out for future research was to develop analyses of PR managerial roles in different types of organizations.

Abstract [sv]

Den svenska regeringens presskonferenser har under 1900-talet gått från att vara informella träffar mellan statsministern och några redaktörer, till en etablerad form för möten mellan ministrar och journalister. Regeringen kan presentera sin politik och journalister har möjlighet att ställa politiker till svars, som en del av den demokratiska processen.Politikernas arena bidrar med fördjupade kunskaper om de normer och praktiker som kännetecknar den svenska regeringens presskonferenser, och hur formerna för mötena utvecklats och institutionaliserats från Tage Erlander över Olof Palme till den borgerliga Alliansregeringen. Med detaljerade analyser av interaktionen under presskonferenserna undersöks om relationerna mellan politiker och journalister kännetecknas av konflikt eller konsensus, och i boken åskådliggörs hur politikerna agerar för att manifestera enighet. Mediernas rapportering från presskonferenser är också föremål för undersökning.Boken riktar sig i första hand till forskare och studenter i medie- och kommunikationsvetenskap, journalistik och statsvetenskap men även till politiskt intresserade.

Abstract [en]

Emerging with the Second World War, and taking its modern form in the 1970s with Olof Palme, the government press conference has today become an almost daily event in Sweden with frequent informal and impromptu meetings between the assembled press and the prime minister. The history of this phenomenon reveals a development from respectful off-the-record sessions to direct webcasted conferences with PR-minded, policy-selling politicians as well as, at least sometimes, journalists eager to inquire into problematic issues. The initial stage, during the war, was very intense, as Stockholm became a gathering point for international war correspondents. This study, grounded in multidisciplinary relational conceptualizations and using a multidimensional methodology, aims to tell the story of the development of governmental press conferences in Sweden.
