    Capturing complexity: Forests, decision-making and climate change mitigation action2018Inngår i: Global Environmental Change, ISSN 0959-3780, E-ISSN 1872-9495, Vol. 52, s. 238-247Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Managed forests can play an important role in climate change mitigation due to their capacity to sequester carbon. However, it has proven difficult to harness their full potential for climate change mitigation. Managed forests are often referred to as socio-ecological systems as the human dimension is an integral part of the system. When attempting to change systems that are influenced by factors such as collective knowledge, social organization, understanding of the situation and values represented in society, initial intentions often shift due to the complexity of political, social and scientific interactions. Currently, the scientific literature is dispersed over the different factors related to the socio-ecological system. To examine the level of dispersion and to obtain a holistic view, we review climate change mitigation in the context of Swedish forest research. We introduce a heuristic framework to understand decision-making connected to climate change mitigation. We apply our framework to two themes which span different dimensions in the socio-ecological system: carbon accounting and bioenergy. A key finding in the literature was the perception that current uncertainties regarding the reliability of different methods of carbon accounting inhibits international agreement on the use of forests for climate change mitigation. This feeds into a strategic obstacle affecting the willingness of individual countries to implement forest-related carbon emission reduction policies. Decisions on the utilization of forests for bioenergy are impeded by a lack of knowledge regarding the resultant biophysical and social consequences. This interacts negatively with the development of institutional incentives regarding the production of bioenergy using forest products. Normative disagreement about acceptable forest use further affects these scientific discussions and therefore is an over-arching influence on decision-making. With our framework, we capture this complexity and make obstacles to decision-making more transparent to enable their more effective resolution. We have identified the main research areas concerned with the use of managed forest in climate change mitigation and the obstacles that are connected to decision making.

    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    Bachelor essey in political science by Merima Kozlicic, spring 2006

    Supervisor: prof. Mats Lindberg

    Title: “Swedish politics of economic stabilization. A study of swedish politics of stabilization with focus on the creditmarket”

    The purpose of this essey is to describe the swedish politics of stabilization with focus on the creditmarket and its function within the regulations that were present until 1985 but also to describe how deregulations of the creditmarket have influenced on transformation of the politics of economic stabilization during the first half of 1990s. The questions this essey seeks to answer are: 1. a) Which were the basic objectives and means within the politics of economic stabilization until releasing of the economic crisis in the beginning of the 1990s? b) Which are the basic objectives and means within the new politics of economic stabilization in the middle of the 1990s? 2. a) What were the functions of the creditmarket within the politics of economic stabilization until 1985? b) What are the functions of the creditmarket after the process of deregulation?

    The method adopted in this essey is a theoretical structured description. This means that I am going to do a theoretical description of how politics of economic stabilization has developed in a historical perspective but also a description of how creditmarket has been employed as instrument in political objectives. At the same time, this theoretical descriptive study aims to illustrate the politics of economic stabilization, with its basic objectives and means, after deregulations of the creditmarket and during the period of the economic crisis in the 1990s. The theoretical description is based on three concepts; “the politics of stabilization”, “creditmarket” and “interest”.

    My conclusion concerning the politics of economic stabilization is that it has undergone huge transformation after the deregulation of the creditmarket and the economic crisis in the 1990s. The most profound changes are the institutional ones. The Bank of Sweden is today much more independent prior to the old politics of economic stabilization and has as its main objective to maintain a low rate of inflation. The swedish politics of economic stabilization is nowdays relating its public costs to the recommendations from the European agreement of economic stabilization. The conclusion regarding the creditmarket after the process of deregulation is that it has undergone a rapid process of adapting to the free market strategy and integreting into the international financial markets.

    Advocates for peace?: The role of the civil society in the planning of Jerusalem2016Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Jerusalem is at the center of the Israel/Palestine conflict. The escalating violence that the city has witnessed during 2015 is a reminder of the fragile situation. The state of Israel de facto annexed East Jerusalem in 1967 and the Palestinian population has since accused Israeli authorities for discriminatory actions and regulations regarding planning issues. Some Israeli NGO:s have during the last decade worked within the Israeli planning system and legal frameworks to create a better situation for the Palestinians regarding for instance building permits and infrastructure (Interview 2007; Ron & Blankshtain, 2011). This is an alternative approach in order to bring Palestinian planning issues onto the agenda. On the other hand it is problematic for Palestinians to participate in these projects as it risks legitimizing an occupation. The purpose of this article is to scrutinize the role of Israeli NGO:s working with planning rights in Jerusalem. The purpose is to understand these NGO:s as potential peace-builders but also to understand the challenges of working in the context of a protracted conflict. The article is based on interview studies performed in Jerusalem in 2007 and 2009 with public planners, private planner and NGO:s, as well as a follow-up survey sent to planners and NGO:s in 2015.

    Implementing public management trends: Policy diffusion in the establishment of municipal service centers in Sweden2015Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Establishing one-stop shops is an ongoing global trend and research on the topic has been published since early 00s until today (c.f. Shahaida, Jayasimha, and Nargundkar, 2005; Bhatti et al., 2011; Poddighe and Ianniello, 2011; Turner, 2012 & Bernhard and Wihlborg, 2014). This management trend focused in the beginning to a great extent on the e-perspective and has shifted more and more towards a broader service perspective and face-to-face interactions.

    In Sweden, we are now witnessing the fast spreading of municipal service centers (MSCs) also called contact centers, customer service, and citizen centers. Today there are at least 76 centers and more are opening shortly. The municipal service center is a particular form of one-stop shop on the local level, with the aim to create a new kind of local government-citizen interaction. The two main motives for establishing MSCs are to provide equal opportunities for all citizens to obtain high-quality service and to make citizen–government interaction more efficient and cost-effective. The central idea is to gather all arenas for interaction, in one geographical location accessed via one phone number and one website, etc.

    The question is why this trend is spreading quickly in Sweden at this point in time. Is it something qualitatively different than other one-stop shops in other national contexts or more or less the same trend? Policy diffusion could be a conscious or a more subtle process of incorporating innovative ideas into an ordinary public sector activity There are at least three main mechanisms such as; (i) calculations of economic and other gains and consequences of adopting a certain policy innovation, for instance benchmarking (ii) sheer imitation; and (iii) more direct and sometimes coercive ways to incorporate ideas into a specific context (Marsh & Sharman, 2009). It is quite clear that we are witnessing a diffusion of an idea and this article concentrates on describing and understanding the diffusion process in the establishment of service centers in Sweden. Theories on policy diffusion, learning and transfer are used to frame the topic. What happens when a seemingly global reform trend lands in the Swedish urban context? Does it take a different shape, does it involve learning from similar processes, or is it simply a question of imitating other proclaimed success stories?

    The article is based on a survey sent to the 76 service centers mentioned and on a case study in the municipality of Örebro performed during 2014-2015.

    Understanding the role of narratives in planning policy making: the case of Jerusalem2016Inngår i: IPA 2016 Hull: Book of Abstracts, 2016, s. 38-39Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Jerusalem is one of the main components of the Israel-Palestine conflict and as such part of a narrative battle. There is no common and accepted truth about the history, the everyday life, the administration, or the future of the city. The identity politics of Jerusalem contains a number of narratives and one main characteristic is that they are based on so called commemorations that play a large role in the construction of Jerusalem. The commemorative narratives (Zerubavel, 1995) are used and produced in order to state a claim. This paper focuses on narratives regarding territory and more specifically how these narratives affect planning policy-making regarding a contested city, particularly inspired by Margaret Somers idea on public narratives (2000). These collective memories, closely incorporated in national identity, are created and reproduced in schools, in the military system, by politicians, by authors, by civil servants, etc., through acts of commemoration. Commemorative narratives could be connected to a larger framework – a so-called master commemorative narrative. This master narrative is a wider statement of the collective memory. Narratives are rarely undisputed. Where we find narratives we also find counter-narratives causing a narrative battle and in the case of Jerusalem, narratives have the capacity to ignite the conflict. It is therefore necessary to better understand the role of these narratives within a conflict and within policy processes. The aim of this paper is twofold; (1.) to distinguish the narratives of Jerusalem in political speeches, statements and similar, and (2.) to examine the role they play in city planning policies and processes. The paper is based on the analysis of a selection of texts within the time frame 1967-2015, as well as an extensive interview material from 2007 and 2009. In addition, a follow-up survey was performed in 2015.

    Citizen-centred innovations between responsive and inclusive democracy.: Examples from a Swedish city.2015Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Representing all citizens, as well as their needs and interests within its territory, municipalities have a unique role in setting a legitimate policy agenda. In times of economic recession, fiscal austerity becomes a huge challenge for local governments to tackle. This challenge has triggered experiments with new forms of citizen-local government interaction.

    In some of these experiments citizens have been invited to participate in decision-making or implementation, and new forms of “participatory engineering” have become commonplace, including dialogue forums in social media and elsewhere (Zittel & Fuchs 2007). Citizen participation has been loudly praised by decision-making authorities when it comes to area based interventions and broader programs. There is a belief that including citizens will increase efficiency and legitimacy of government as well as social capital among citizens.

    Other experiments are focusing on providing the best possible service with a focus on quality and citizen needs rather than participation or on institutional innovations (Graham, 2009) for alleviating citizen-government interaction.

    The prospects, aims and outcomes of these experiments raise a range of normative, theoretical and empirical questions. In the light of recent literature on social and democratic innovations, the purpose of this paper is to scrutinize two cases of citizen-focused innovations in the mid-size Swedish city of Örebro. The first case is the establishment of a citizen service center where all local government citizen interaction is gathered in one location both physically and virtually. The second is a case of neighborhood renewal, where the municipal housing company plays a vital role, involving residents in the planning process, and offering opportunities of employment. The study contributes to the broader conceptual discussion about citizen-focused innovations and critically discusses the prospects of applying these with regard to citizens with limited resources. To put it brief, are they tools for democracy or rather cases of tokenism?

    The duty to protect: gender in the Swedish practice of conscription2001Inngår i: Cooperation and Conflict, ISSN 0010-8367, E-ISSN 1460-3691, Vol. 36, nr 2, s. 153-176Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, we turn first to a brief discussion of feminist contributions in the field of security, defense, and collective identity, and then argue that Swedish nationalism is tied to a particular form of collective identity formation through the practice of conscription. Drawing on Elshtain's notions of `just warriors' and `beautiful souls', we go on to spell out how women, historically, have been situated within the discourse of militarism. Finally, we look at how the contribution of women to the military has been perceived and argued, and then point out how a small number of female soldiers may be instrumental in exposing a particular value system of gender, citizenship, and collective identity.

    Understanding the process of establishing a food and nutrition policy: the case of Slovenia2012Inngår i: Health Policy, ISSN 0168-8510, E-ISSN 1872-6054, Vol. 107, nr 1, s. 91-97Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: There has been an increasing effort across Europe to develop national policies in food and nutrition during the last decade. However, little is known about how public health nutrition issues get on the public health agenda and the roles individuals have when these agendas are being set.

    Objectives: The aims of this study were to scrutinise the development process of the Slovenian national food and nutrition policy, and to identify the roles and functions of individuals who have contributed to that process.

    Methods: This study undertook a qualitative approach. Data collection included 18 semi-structured interviews between 2007 and 2011, and grey and scientific literature search. Text analysis was based on Kingdon's streams model, which involved highlighting the relationship between problem identification, policy solutions and political opportunities. Data were coded to identify the roles and functions of individuals participating in the agenda-setting process.

    Results: The analysis showed that the opportunity for the Slovenian food and nutrition policy to be developed was largely explained by a change in political circumstances, namely the accession of Slovenia to the European Union and the Common Agricultural Policy. Individuals with experience in policy development were identified because of their analytical, strategic and policy entrepreneurial skills. The analyst was responsible for communicating the key nutrition issues to policy-makers, the strategist joined international networks and promoted policy solutions from international experts including the World Health Organization, and the policy entrepreneur took advantage of the political situation to enlist the participation of previous opponents to a national nutrition policy.

    Conclusion: This study found that individuals, their roles and skills, played an important role in the development of the Slovenian National Food and Nutrition Policy. The roles and functions of these individuals, which are identified in this study, may assist future endeavours to advance public health nutrition as a key political issue.

    Aiming for change: intentional communities and ideology in function2004Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The question raised in this thesis is whether there is a common ideology to be found among intentional communities, and if so, what does characterise such an ideology and how does it relate to the traditional –isms? The study takes its theoretical point of departure in a functional concept of ideology, along with six dimensions of social critique: the political, the politico-economic, the politico-sexual, the psychosocial, the religious and spiritual, and the environmental.

    The findings of this study indicate that intentional communities have a common ideological core. They explain the world around them in terms of that the modern, capitalist society having disempowered its citizens and put them into structures that are alienating and unsustainable. The evaluation that they offer is that it is necessary to work for more integration, autonomy and sustainability. The orientative function indicates that the social agent is the individual in community. Together communards claim that they can develop new structures and function as role models and inspiration for the mainstream. Finally, the programme that they suggest is to, through outreaching work and internal work, cut consumption and change production methods in order to ease as well environmental as social impact.

    Consensus, democracy and the land surveyor in the Swedish cadastral executive procedure2001Inngår i: Planning Theory & Practice, ISSN 1464-9357, E-ISSN 1470-000X, Vol. 2, nr 3, s. 325-340Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Taking the method of formal consensus as its conceptual point of departure, the article analyses the Swedish cadastral executive procedure ( fastighetsförrättning ) as a case where the issue of land use directly confronts the individual citizen with the state administrative apparatus and its interpretation of the land policy legislation. In the mixture of negotiations, consensual decision-making and court procedure that characterizes this process the emphasis is on the crucial, and complex role of the executive land surveyor. Identifying deliberative democracy and communicative planning theory as two complementary discourses within which to discuss the cadastral executive procedure, the article finally argues that giving consensual approaches to planning a stronger place in their training would substantially improve the ability of the land surveyor to execute her/his delicate set of roles in this procedure.

    Abstract [sv]

    1979 infördes den första jämställdhetslagen i Sverige som syftade till att främja jämställdhet mellan kvinnor och män i arbetslivet. Lagen reviderades vid flera tillfällen innan den 2009 ersattes av den nuvarande diskrimineringslagen. De svenska kommunerna har under 30 år haft i uppdrag att arbeta för ökad jämställdhet. Statistiska Centralbyrån har sedan 1984 gett ut ”På tal om kvinnor och män. Lathund om jämställdhet” vartannat år.

    Denna skrift visar att det på många av livets områden återstår mycket att göra innan jämställdhet har uppnåtts. Kommunerna är centrala aktörer i jämställdhetsarbetet. De är stora arbetsgivare med en majoritet kvinnor anställda och alla svenska medborgare kommer nästan dagligen i kontakt med de kommunala verksamheterna. I detta kapitel redovisas en stor svensk kommuns jämställdhetsarbete. Undersökningen har gjorts inom ramen för ett utvärderingsprojekt som genomfördes 2004-2007. Projektet  redovisades i en skriftlig rapport (Montin, 2008).

    Att lägga politiken tillrätta: kommunala chefers professionalisering2010Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The desire for many people today is to be professional, and many occupations seek professional status. The idea of a profession has a higher status than a mere occupation; professionals have lot of knowledge and power to decide about their own work and they can also voice opinions about others. Occupations are driven towards attaining professional status. This process is not driven by single individuals aiming to exercise power in relation to other individuals. It is a collective, national process by an occupation. The overall aim of this dissertation is to examine, describe and analyze the process of professionalization of local public managers. There are four researchtopics: a) What are the characteristics of a professional group, and do these apply to local public managers? b) How is municipal organization portrayed with regard to the roles of politicians and administrators? c) How do politicians,managers, and public servants view themselves and each other in a normative and descriptive way? d) In what ways are managers trying to increase their influence to reach a position from which it is possible to choose to follow, or notfollow, a political decision? The methods used in this research are several; a deep case study in which surveys, observations, document studies and interviews are conducted. As theoretical framework theories of power, professionalization and discourse are used to analyze the empirical material from the case study.The results show top managers’ ongoing quest for professional status. They exclude other groups in order to handle their work without interference from others – discretion, the driving force behind professionalization. Usurpation is a strategy to get into the area of the politicians. Politicians are talked of as children in need for raise and a municipality is perceived as a private business enterprise. In this discourse values such as effectiveness, customer satisfaction, competition and value-for-money are important. The municipality is heavily inspired by thei deas of New Public Management. This development is quite problematic withregard to democracy. The democratic values such as public ethics, political democracyand the rule of law – the public ethos - are not spoken of. My hope is that this dissertation can prompt managers to reflect, since I have tried to see their work from a different perspective than what they most probably use.

    From Wicked Problem to Governable Entity?: The Effects of Forestry on Mercury in Aquatic Ecosystems2018Inngår i: Forest Policy and Economics, ISSN 1389-9341, E-ISSN 1872-7050, Vol. 90, s. 90-96Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In all Swedish lakes, the concentration of mercury (Hg) in fish exceeds the European Union threshold limit. While the ultimate source of Hg is primarily airborne emissions from fossil energy, forestry plays a small but important role because some forestry operations help mobilize and transform Hg, increasing Hg loads in downstream aquatic ecosystems. Simultaneously, climate change is placing additional demands on forests to provide biomass as a substitute for fossil fuel. Thus, decision-makers are facing a complex situation, a “wicked problem,” when it comes to how to handle the problem of forestry’s effects on Hg in aquatic ecosystems while at the same time securing other ecosystem services. In order to explore forestry’s degree of responsibility as well as possible solutions to this problem in Sweden, a transdisciplinary method has been used consisting of a structured dialogue with actors from relevant governmental agencies, forest companies, and forest associations. The analysis shows that while the issue can be addressed constructively, the complex character of the problem requires consideration of not only management practices for forestry but also current regulatory goals and environmental objectives. The Hg problem represents a class of difficult issues for forestry where stand- or property-based production has an impact on a greater spatial scale. This means that regulating the more direct impacts of forestry needs to be weighed against the implications this regulation may have on the overall issue of ecosystem services.

    Addressing climate change democratically: Multi-level governance, transnational networks and governmental structures2010Inngår i: Sustainable Development, ISSN 0968-0802, E-ISSN 1099-1719, Vol. 18, nr 1, s. 32-41Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the article is to discuss the democratic implications of climate change and whether or not it is possible to harmonize basic democratic values with the challenges raised by global warming. Highlighting three central democratic mechanisms it is argued that even if participation and deliberation are crucial for addressing the challenge of climate change this must be done within a system of democratic representation. To become both efficient and democratic, climate governance has to include different spheres and levels of authority. As there is no blueprint for a new institutional order of this kind we have to build upon and better utilize the patchwork of multi-level governance at hand. The growing number of trans-national networks, including a great variety of coalitions between actors from formal as well as informal institutions, has a great potential as an arena for deliberation of the challenge of climate change.

    Ecological modernization in practice?: the case of sustainable development in Sweden2012Inngår i: Journal of Environmental Policy and Planning, ISSN 1523-908X, E-ISSN 1522-7200, Vol. 14, nr 4, s. 411-427Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Sweden is widely considered a forerunner in environmental policy and one of the most ecologically modernized countries in the world. However, like most other countries, it has not been able to escape from economic recession, high unemployment rates and increasing social segregation. Doubts have also been raised as to whether the rosy picture of successful eco-modernization corresponds to policy in practice. How does Sweden stand the test when bold sustainable development goals confront the challenges of financial and economic crisis and strong pressure on its social welfare system? The analysis finds that Sweden has officially adopted an eco-modernist understanding of society where economic growth, social welfare and environmental values and interests support each other, with economic growth notably considered the crucial driver. However, reconciling these dimensions into one integrated strategy for sustainable development is easier said than done, and it is shown that the gulf between policy rhetoric and practice is deeper than recognized and may even be increasing. The article finally addresses the question of whether this conclusion indicates the dead-end of eco-modernization as a discursive guideline for sustainable development or if it is rather a trigger for a more radical approach to eco-modernization.

    Abstract [en]

    Sweden is a forerunner in environmental policy and one of the most ecologically modernized countries in the world. However, as with most other countries, it has not been able to avoid economic recession and high unemployment. Thus it is of great interest to investigate whether Sweden, in confronting this challenge, is still on the right track in terms of redesigning society to become environmentally sustainable. The fundamental question of this article is: how well does Sweden measure up when bold sustainable development goals are confronted with the challenges of financial and economic crisis and the strong pressures exerted on its social welfare system ? According to our analysis, Sweden has achieved a form of understanding in which economic growth, social welfare and environmental policy support each other. However, reconciling these dimensions into an integrated strategy for sustainable development is easier said than done and, as is shown in this paper, the distance between rhetoric, policy and practice is greater than is acknowledge in the policy formulated to date.

    Abstract [en]

    The environmental question poses four challenges to democracy: global justice, intergenerational justice, the value of non-human species and technocratic decision-making. This article discusses these challenges in the light of three values or dimensions of democratic theory: representativity, participation and deliberation. It is found that even, if participation and deliberation by a broad set of actors are crucial to integrate democratic decision-making and environmental concern, there is also a need for representative institutions at all levels of society. The democracy-environment relation is not just about values and ideas. It also requires global, international, regional, national and local institutions armed with power resources

    Sweden and the Baltic Sea pipeline: between ecology and economy2012Inngår i: Marine Policy, ISSN 0308-597X, E-ISSN 1872-9460, Vol. 36, nr 2, s. 333-338Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Building a submarine pipeline in the Baltic Sea to transport natural gas from Russia to Germany contradicts targets to reduce fossil fuel dependency and seems to ignore a long history of environmental challenges in the area. This article examines the tensions between the environmental, economic, and national security arguments framing the Swedish government decision to allow the pipeline to be laid on the Baltic seabed passing through the Swedish economic zone. At first sight, the decision seems to run contrary to Sweden's ambitious environmental policy. However, by framing the issue within a broader understanding of the country's tradition of consensual decision-making, and considering the tensions and contradictions inherent in policies for sustainable development, the permission fits well with the logic that, in case of conflict, economic growth is given priority even when the environment is at stake.

    When and how does science matter?: international relations meets science and technology studies2015Inngår i: Global Environmental Politics, ISSN 1526-3800, E-ISSN 1536-0091, Vol. 15, nr 1, s. 1-20Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Under what conditions does science influence environmental policy? International Relations (IR) scholars, such as Peter M Haas, have argued that to gain political influence, science should not connect to policy before scientific consensus has been reached. We take this suggestion as a point of departure for investigating how science is and should be connected to policy in international environmental governance. Using insights from the field of Science and Technology Studies (STS), the contribution of IR is critically discussed, both to present its limitations and, primarily, to further develop the understanding of scientific consensus within IR and the need for separation and connections between science and policy. The organization and performance of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), including the various assessments made by scholars from IR and STS, is used as an illustrative case. From the discussion of IR and STS and the role of the IPCC in climate policy, we conclude that the focus within STS on contextual and informal factors could shed light on how science and technology are understood by IR scholars, who focus more on the formal organizational design of the interplay between science and policy.

    Struggle and Development: Approaching gender bias in practical international development work2007Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Since the Beijing Conference on women in 1995 ‘gender-mainstreaming’ has been the new buzz word within the international development regime. Gender equality is increasingly believed to be a major determinant for socioeconomic development in the Global South. However, the development agenda and the gender strategies for the Global South are still outlined and determined by development professionals at head quarters of the development business in the in the Global North. Heavy critique has been launched against the prevailing international development paradigm, not only for being increasingly centralised and categorised as business, which distances global policy from the lived realities in the Global South, but also for obscuring unequal power relations between men and women behind the political correctness of gender.

    This study explores how gender and gender power relations are perceived and approached in practical development work in India. Through the example of the Self-Employed Women’s Association, SEWA, my ambition is to give an example of how gender bias and social inequality can be targeted through practical socioeconomic development work in a way that is both context sensitive and sprung from the Global South. SEWA is a women’s organisation, as well as a trade union and a cooperative movement. Aiming at improving employment and social and economic security for the female workers in the informal sectors, SEWA has organised its 800 000 members and social security services into cooperatives to bring about a process of social transformation with women at the centre.

    My empirical findings show that SEWA approaches gender bias in concrete and particular forms. As gender discrimination and poverty are interconnected, dealing with low-income households’ basic socioeconomic needs will also restructure gender power relations. With a large member-base and with ties to NGOs, corporations and governmental bodies, regionally, nationally and internationally, SEWA has become a powerful actor for social development, even at times when they face heavy resistance due to their feminist principles and commitment to the poor and socially marginalised.

    Only women bleed?: a critical reassessment of comprehensive feminist social theory2009Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Is there a viable specifically feminist social theory that can serve as heuristic devise in our social research? This thesis is a critical reassessment of the ontological and normative assumptions of four social theories with specific and clear claims of being feminist. These are Catharine M MackInnon’s Radical Feminism, Anna G Jonasdottir’s Theory of Love Power, Luce Irigaray’s Feminism of Sexual Difference and Judith Butler’s Queer Feminism. The feminist social theories are examined and critically discussed according to their internal coherence and their external relevance; which includes the normative political implications that can be inferred. The thesis claims that implicit in every comprehensive feminist approach, there is also a specific view of science. Then follows a meta-inquiry of comprehensive feminisms as social science and as social theories, including a discussion of the effects of comprehensive ideology on social science research in general, and of the relationship between ideology, theory and a scientific approach in particular. The thesis concludes that it is highly problematic to do science feministly, but that we do need the critical questions feminists raise in order to reevaluate concepts, theories and research priorities. It is argued that feminist social theories are perhaps most helpful as ideological guidance for political action.

    Doubting democrats?: A comparative analysis of support for democracy in Central and Eastern Europe2004Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis deals with public support for the democratic political system in the new Central and East European member states of the European Union. The main aim of this study is to analyse democratic consolidation on the attitudinal level. The study employs a broad comparative perspective, covering ten countries: The Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Poland, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Romania, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. The empirical analysis draws on the New Europe Barometer, a large-scale cross-national opinion survey, including some 62,000 respondents in eleven countries, covering ten years of post-communist political and economic development.

    Utilising a five-fold analytical framework of support, this study sets out to analyse three different dimensions of public support for the political system: support for regime institutions, regime performance, and regime principles. Departing from the assumption that public support for the democratic political system is an essential component when it comes to the legitimacy of the system, this study tests the validity of the ‘Churchill hypothesis’, which claims that people will accept democracy with all its flaws, because it is still better than its alternatives.

    The findings of this study indicate that dissatisfaction with the performance of the democratic political system and its institutions is widespread in post-communist Central and Eastern Europe. Still, the principles of democracy enjoy considerable public support, thus demonstrating the validity of the ‘Churchill hypothesis’. In general, post-communist citizens reject explicit non-democratic alternatives even though they are disappointed with the performance of the democratic regime. The findings indicate that there is a gap between the high levels of diffuse support for democratic principles and the relatively low levels of specific support for the performance of the system. Thus, while democracy is on the road towards consolidation on the attitudinal level, at the same time a fair share of post-communist citizens still seem to doubt the qualities of democracy from a perspective of regime performance, but they nonetheless prefer democracy over its alternatives.

    Implementation of International Programmes in Developing Countries: the Example of SAICM in Tanzania2008Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM) is an international framework on sound chemicals management with the objective that “by the year 2020, chemicals are produced and used in ways that minimize significant adverse impacts on the environment and human health”. SAICM was adopted at the International Conference on Chemicals Management in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, in February 2006. To prepare countries to be able to implement SAICM the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) is currently running Pilot Projects in three developing countries and one county with economy in transition: Belarus, Pakistan, Tanzania and Panama. Between October and December 2007 we were doing a Minor Field Study in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, interviewing people involved in the implementation of their Pilot Project which is running from 2006-2009. Our paper consists of two parts, one descriptive and one analysing. In the first part we describe the initiation, the formulation, the implementation and the evaluation of SAICM and the Pilot Project in Tanzania and in the second part we analyse opportunities and hindrances for a successful implementation of the Pilot Project and SAICM in Tanzania. How is the UN governing the implementation, what resources of finances, knowledge, institutions and time does Tanzania have and how is the implementation influenced by different actors interests? We argue that the there is mixture of the top-down and the bottom-up models and that this mixture is fruitful, we argue that Tanzania has enough finances, knowledge and time to implement SAICM but lack institutions, and finally that the different interests are not too various to harm the process.

    Mellan Nouakchott och Antananarivo: Afrika och demokratin2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this essay is on the one hand to study Sub-Saharan Africa from a comparative perspective to analyze different explanations to democratization and on the other hand to compare the democratization of the most interesting cases found. To fulfil the purpose, the essay is divided into a quantitative and a qualitative part. The quantitative part starts from four different theories of democratization and thus has a deductive theory testing approach. We intend to use four theories: the modernization theory, the theory of stable institutions as a prerequisite for democratization, political culture and ethnic diversity as an obstacle for democratization, to test how they correspond with the democratic situation in Africa, and at the same time find deviant cases. The second part of the study takes its start from an inductive perspective and examines institutions and citizens of the deviant cases. We have found that the stable institutions indicator and the socioeconomic indicators are the ones out of our indicators that best can explain democratization in Sub-Saharan Africa. The quantitative study also reveals two cases that are democracies although they do not follow the general patterns of democratization. Our research concludes that the most striking resemblance between our deviant cases, Benin and Mali, is that they have both developed stable institutions. This could be one reason why they have managed to democratize despite their harsh conditions.

    Abstract [en]

    The Muhammad cartoon crisis in 2005 provides an illustrative example of how crises travel across geographical boundaries, in this case, from a national newspaper into a full-fledged public diplomacy crisis at the international level. From a crisis management perspective, a multilevel setting poses a real challenge to actors trying to contain the situation at hand. Likewise, the multilevel nature of a crisis poses a challenge to crisis communication theories, which have traditionally focused on rhetorical strategies in single organizational crises. As a response, this article proposes a framework for examining crisis communication based on how actors’ framing impact the perceptions of arenas, stakeholders, and communication strategies.

    Who speaks for the future of Earth?: how critical social science can extend the conversation on the Anthropocene2015Inngår i: Global Environmental Change, ISSN 0959-3780, E-ISSN 1872-9495, Vol. 32, s. 211-218Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper asks how the social sciences can engage with the idea of the Anthropocene in productive ways. In response to this question we outline an interpretative research agenda that allows critical engagement with the Anthropocene as a socially and culturally bounded object with many possible meanings and political trajectories. In order to facilitate the kind of political mobilization required to meet the complex environmental challenges of our times, we argue that the social sciences should refrain from adjusting to standardized research agendas and templates. A more urgent analytical challenge lies in exposing, challenging and extending the ontological assumptions that inform how we make sense of and respond to a rapidly changing environment. By cultivating environmental research that opens up multiple interpretations of the Anthropocene, the social sciences can help to extend the realm of the possible for environmental politics.
