    Brain circulation and flexible adjustment: labour mobility as a cluster advantage2011In: Geografiska Annaler. Series B, Human Geography, ISSN 0435-3684, E-ISSN 1468-0467, Vol. 93, no 1, p. 21-39Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores the role of labour mobility as a potential cluster advantage. We review the theoretical arguments as for how and why labour mobility could enhance the dynamism and performance of clusters of similar and related firms. A combination of quantitative and qualitative data from two information and communication technology (ICT) clusters is used to answer two research questions: (1) What is the role of mobility enhancing (or restricting) institutions in clusters? (2) In what ways does labour mobility contribute to knowledge transfer within clusters? The two ICT clusters studied in the article generally seem to have higher levels of mobility, compared to the labour market at large. Although it is regarded as beneficial in theory, most cluster firms try to restrict mobility of workers since they fear the risk and costs of losing staff. Labour mobility is also rarely viewed as a viable way to increase the knowledge bases or contact networks of firms. However, when firms need to recruit the clustered labour markets seem to benefit them by facilitating the use of informal recruitment processes. By way of conclusion it is suggested that cluster firms might be under-investing in mobility and that innovative institutional solutions could help realize clusters’ mobility potential.

    Exploring Dutch migration to rural Sweden: international counterurbanisation in the EU2012In: Tijdschrift voor economische en sociale geografie, ISSN 0040-747X, E-ISSN 1467-9663, Vol. 103, no 3, p. 330-346Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores whether the concept of counterurbanisation, expanded with an international dimension, offers a valuable framework for understanding recent migration flows from the Netherlands to Sweden. Using a geo-referenced database comprising demographic and socio-economic variables, the post-migration employment status, employment sector and settlement location of Dutch migrants in Central Sweden are analysed. In addition, results from observation, interviews and a survey during emigration fairs are employed to describe the motives for migration from the Netherlands to Central Sweden. We argue that counterurbanisation is not an exhausted research topic, when international political, economic and socio-cultural factors are added to the study.

    Multilevel governance, networking cities and the geography of climate-change mitigation: two Swedish examples2009In: Environment and Planning. C, Government and Policy, ISSN 0263-774X, E-ISSN 1472-3425, Vol. 27, no 1, p. 59-74Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    What geographical and instiutional conditions are important for initiating and sustaining climate-change mitigation at the local level? Taking this question as a point of departure, we analyze local climate mitigation as a case of multilevel network governance. This is illustrated by the case of two Swedish cities, which are both involved in city networking in favour of climate-change mitigation. Different business structures and other local conditions in significant ways influence both the level of ambition and the climate-policy strategies of the two cities, The sheer size and intensity of the networking activities clearly illustrate the fact that cities are increasingly becoming arenas of globalization, rather than passive victims of global forces, thus confirming the call for a multilevel netork-governance approach in policy and politics as well as in research.

    Bio i Bergslagen: Mapping Rural Cinema in Sweden 1956-762017Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The 1950s to the mid1970s marks the final phase of urbanization in Sweden and full implementation of the Social democratic welfare state. It’s a period of prosperity in which the industries and their workforce are celebrated and provide models and standards also for other wakes of society and life.

    In the year 1956 cinema going peaked in Sweden! Seven years later the number of cinema tickets sold had cut back by half and continued to dwindle. Is television to be blamed?

    For the rural and industrial region of Bergslagen we will present a cinema location analysis that identifies the venues that persisted with film exhibition 1956-76. The map is layered with data on population density, ownership of television sets, entertainment hubs and transportation routes. An analysis will address the hypothesis (1) that cinema more or less perished in rural areas (2) as a result of the dissemination of television. We seek to complicate the history of rural cinema by exploring social, cultural and geographical relations in the region. The result is an attempt at writing rural industrial history taking leisure as a point of departure, rather than the more established practice of organizing the historical narrative around “work”.

    New firm formation in old industrial regions: a study of entrepreneurial in-migrants in Bergslagen, Sweden2015In: Norsk Geografisk Tidsskrift, ISSN 0029-1951, E-ISSN 1502-5292, Vol. 69, no 2, p. 90-101Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article examines new firm formation in the old industrial region (OIR) of Bergslagen in Sweden, and in particular the role of in-migrants. The study is based on longitudinal georeferenced microdata (1993–2008) compiled by Statistics Sweden and providing information on individuals' attachments to the Swedish labour market, as well as workplaces and firms, education, income, and family composition. This specially commissioned database enabled the characterization and analysis of emerging forms of entrepreneurship and self-employment, as well as the socio-economics of the labour market. The longitudinal data allowed the authors to trace actions taken by individuals over time. The results indicate that new firm formation is related to private services, rather than to the traditional manufacturing sector and public services that currently dominate the regional labour market. Self-employed in-migrants are active in other sectors than non-migrants, and show some distinct features in terms of their lower age, better education, and more often non-Nordic background. The study showed that both in-migration and return migration had a positive, significant, and substantial effect on migrants' decision to start a business when a number of other individual characteristics had been controlled for.

    Bergslagen - en industriregion i upplösning?2016Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Kan en gammal industriregion som Bergslagen kan byta inriktning när det gäller näringsliv och arbete, och är det möjligt att vända den negativa befolknings­utvecklingen? Vilka tecken på förnyelse och förändring i Bergslagens orter kan skönjas när det gäller företagande och sysselsättning, befolkningsunderlag och service? Kommer det överhuvudtaget att vara meningsfullt att tala om Bergslagen som sammanhängande region år 2050?

    Denna studie inom projektet Brytpunkt Bergslagen bygger på en statistisk analys av ett 30-tal utvalda orter i Bergslagen, varav ett tiotal ingår i Bergslagssatsningen – Kultur och Turism. Vi följer utvecklingen i dessa orter från tidigt 1990-tal fram till år 2008, och avsikten är att senare kunna följa upp utvecklingen när Bergslagssatsningen avslutas omkring 2017.

    Studien visar att företa­gandet ökar i betydelse, något som bryter mot tidigare bilder av Bergslagen. Kultur- och turism­näringarna växer i Bergslagsregionen, men de svarar för en liten del av sysselsättningen. Tillgången till olika former av service har förändrats. Antalet livsmedelsbutiker har minskat, liksom förskolor, grundskolor och sjukvårdsenheter. Samtidigt har antalet hotell och restauranger har ökat. Det är frestande att dra slutsatsen ”det går att allt bättre att besöka Bergslagen, men det går inte att stanna kvar”.

    Working through knowledge pools: labour market dynamics, the transference of knowledge and ideas, and industrial clusters2004In: Urban Studies, ISSN 0042-0980, E-ISSN 1360-063X, Vol. 41, no 5-6, p. 1025-1044Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores a prominent cluster in the Swedish capital Stockholm and its surrounding region: the ICT (information and communications technology) cluster. In particular, the article focuses on the issue of the extent to which labour market and labour mobility are the most likely channels for local and extra-local sources of knowledge and ideas. Thus the article positions itself against a growing literature that focuses on rather diffuse and vague notions that knowledge and innovation reside 'in the air' or in the 'buzz' of urban life. Instead, the underlying hypothesis is that in many sectors and industries such things as a cosmopolitan street life or accidental face-to-face encounters play relatively little part in the flow of experiences, knowledge and innovation. Rather, it is in the workplace that these exchanges and flows are located and it is thus through labour mobility that intracluster exchanges occur. The article tests such ideas in relation to the ICT cluster and the Stockholm region using a uniquely detailed time-series data-set. The data-set used is based on official taxation and civil registration records and contains complete details on everything from education to career changes to income levels for every individual resident in Sweden. The detail of the individual records and the complete nature of the data-set mean that it offers a unique possibility to examine, on a large scale, the micro dynamics of individuals in the labour market and in clusters. The data are used to examine whether there have existed over time higher levels of labour market mobility in clusters as opposed to the rest of the urban economy. The article empirically verifies the idea that labour market mobility is significantly higher in the cluster than in the rest of the urban economy.

    Tourism Employment and Creative In-migrants2014In: Scandinavian Journal of Hospitality and Tourism, ISSN 1502-2250, E-ISSN 1502-2269, Vol. 14, no 4, p. 403-421Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyses the importance of tourism employment for in-migration to Malung/Sälen and Älvdalen, two rural municipalities hosting two major tourist destinations in the southern Swedish mountains. It uses micro-data from a database that includes, among many other variables, residence and employment information. This work is explorative and uses longitudinal data that permit examining individuals and go beyond simple net employment figures to show that many in-migrants to these municipalities are employed in tourism and constitute part of what is defined as the “creative workforce” in the local labour market. In this sense, tourism employment is found to be a pull factor for in-migration of highly skilled and well-paid people.
