    Circulating inflammation markers and prostate cancer2019Inngår i: The Prostate, ISSN 0270-4137, E-ISSN 1097-0045, Vol. 79, nr 11, s. 1338-1346Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Chronic inflammation is thought to influence the risk of prostate cancer. The purpose of this population-based case-control study was to evaluate the association of 48 circulating inflammation markers with prostate cancer, to identify candidate markers for further investigation.

    METHODS: Serum samples collected from 235 prostate cancer patients and 198 population-based controls recruited in Örebro County, Sweden, in 1989-1991, were assessed using a multiplex bead-based immunoassay to determine concentrations of 48 circulating inflammation markers. Logistic regression was first used to evaluate the association between individual markers (highest vs lowest concentration quartile) and prostate cancer in unadjusted and mutually adjusted models. Second, patients with inflammatory conditions, metastatic or advanced prostate cancer, were excluded to address the possible influence of systemic disease on inflammation markers.

    RESULTS: Individual analyses first identified 21 markers associated with prostate cancer (P < .05), which after mutual adjustment were reduced to seven markers. After the exclusion of men with conditions linked with systemic inflammation, associations between prostate cancer and deviant levels of C-X3-C motif chemokine ligand 1, platelet-derived growth factor subunit B homodimer, interleukin 10, C-C motif chemokine ligand (CCL) 21, and CCL11 remained statistically significant.

    CONCLUSIONS: In this explorative study, we identified candidate inflammation markers of possible importance for prostate cancer pathophysiology, for further evaluation in prospective studies.

    Acne in late adolescence and risk of prostate cancer2018Inngår i: International Journal of Cancer, ISSN 0020-7136, E-ISSN 1097-0215, s. 1580-1585Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Accumulating evidence suggest that Propionibacterium acnes may play a role in prostate carcinogenesis, but data are so far limited and inconclusive. The aim of this population-based cohort study was therefore to test whether presence of acne vulgaris during late adolescence is associated with an increased risk of prostate cancer later in life. We identified a large cohort of young men born in Sweden between 1952 and 1956, who underwent mandatory assessment for military conscription around the age of 18 (n= 243,187). Test information along with health data including medical diagnoses at time of conscription was available through the Swedish Military Conscription Register and the National Patient Register. The cohort was followed through linkages to the Swedish Cancer Register to identify the occurrence of prostate cancer until December 31st 2009. We used Cox regression to calculate adjusted hazard ratios (HR) and 95% confidence intervals (95% CI) for the association between acne in adolescence and prostate cancer risk. A total of 1,633 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer during a median follow-up of 36.7 years. A diagnosis of acne was associated with a statistically significant increased risk for prostate cancer (adjusted HR: 1.43 95%; CI: 1.06-1.92), particularly for advanced stage disease (HR: 2.37 95%; CI 1.19-4.73). A diagnosis of acne classified as severe conferred a 6-fold increased risk of prostate cancer (HR: 5.70 95% CI 1.42-22.85). Data from this large prospective population-based cohort add new evidence supporting a role of P acnes infection in prostate cancer.

    Appendicitis before age 20 years is associated with an increased risk of later prostate cancer2018Inngår i: Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention, ISSN 1055-9965, E-ISSN 1538-7755, Vol. 27, nr 6, s. 660-664Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Appendicitis before age 20 years has been observed to influence the risk of several inflammatory conditions, possibly through underlying immunological mechanisms. Inflammation has further been suggested to be involved in prostate cancer development. We therefore hypothesized that immunological characteristics signaled by appendicitis before late adolescence might influence the risk of later prostate cancer, and aimed to evaluate this association in a population-based study.

    METHODS: We identified a large cohort of Swedish men who underwent assessment for military conscription around the age of 18 years (n= 242,573). Medical diagnoses at time of conscription were available through the Swedish Military Conscription Register. The Swedish Cancer Register was used to identify diagnoses of prostate cancer. Multivariable adjusted Cox regression analyses were used to estimate hazard ratios (HR) and 95% confidence intervals (95% CI) for the association between appendicitis and prostate cancer.

    RESULTS: During a median of 36.7 years of follow-up, 1,684 diagnoses of prostate cancer occurred. We found a statistically significant association between appendicitis and overall prostate cancer (adjusted HR: 1.70; 95% CI: 1.08-2.67). The risk was notably increased for advanced (HR: 4.42; 95% CI: 1.74-11.22) and lethal (HR: 8.95; 95% CI: 2.98-26.91) prostate cancer.

    CONCLUSION: These results suggest that a diagnosis of appendicitis before adulthood potentially signals underlying immune characteristics and a pattern of inflammatory response relevant to prostate cancer risk.

    IMPACT: The study lends support to the proposed role of inflammation in prostate carcinogenesis, and adds another area of investigation potentially relevant to prostate cancer development.

    Asthma and allergy in adolescence and risk of prostate cancer2017Inngår i: Scandinavian journal of urology, ISSN 2168-1805, E-ISSN 2168-1813, Vol. 51, nr Suppl. 220, s. 20-20Artikkel i tidsskrift (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction: The role of inflammation in prostate cancer has been widely discussed [1]. Exploring the association between immunological or inflammatory conditions, that reflect immune response profile, and prostate cancer risk may provide clues to the type of inflammatory processes involved in the etiology of prostate cancer. Asthma and allergic conditions have been suggested to reduce the risk of prostate cancer, but data from large studies are currently scarce and results are conflicting [2,3].

    Objectives: To test if asthma, hay fever, or any allergic condition present in adolescence is associated with a decreased risk of prostate cancer later in life.

    Methods: This study is based on a cohort of 243,309 men born in Sweden between 1952 and 1956 who underwent mandatory conscription assessments for military service around ages 18-19 years. At this time, a thorough assessment of the men’s health was performed, and conditions such as asthma, hay fever, and allergies were recorded. The cohort was followed for incident prostate cancer through linkage with the Swedish cancer- and population registers. Cox regression was used to estimate adjusted hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) for the association between the selected conditions and prostate cancer incidence.

    Results: A total of 1,654 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer during a maximum of 40.3 years of follow-up (median 36.7 years). At the time of conscription assessment, there were 11,754 men with hay fever, 4,943 with an asthma-diagnosis and 16,112 with any allergic condition. We observed no difference in prostate cancer risk for men with asthma (HR: 0.91, 95% CI: 0.63-1.3), hay fever (HR: 1.03, 95% CI: 0.82-1.28) or any allergic condition (HR: 0.98, 95% CI: 0.8-1.19) compared with men without these diagnoses. Small numbers precluded separate analyses of men with advanced or lethal prostate cancer (n¼6 andn¼3, respectively).

    Conclusion: Our results do not support the hypothesis that presence of asthma or allergic conditions in late adolescence reduces the risk of prostate cancer later in life. If inflammatory processes are involved in the pathogenesis of prostate cancer, the immune response profiles likely differ from those reflected in clinical diagnoses of asthma or allergic conditions. The possibility that different risk patterns may be observed among older men with advanced or lethal prostate cancer, however, cannot be excluded.

    Expression of topoisomerase IIalpha in the G0/G1 cell cycle phase of fresh leukemic cells2001Inngår i: Leukemia research: a Forum for Studies on Leukemia and Normal Hemopoiesis, ISSN 0145-2126, E-ISSN 1873-5835, Vol. 25, nr 11, s. 961-966Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Topoisomerase IIalpha (topoII alpha) is the target enzyme for several antineoplastic drugs. Correlation between low expression of topo IIalpha and drug resistance has been shown in vitro, but there is limited evidence of a correlation to initial response to treatment or to overall prognosis. Normal cells express topo IIalpha in S/G2/M phase of the cell cycle but not in G0/G1 phase. However, some data suggest that topo IIalpha could be expressed in G0/G1 phase in malignant cells. We have investigated the expression of topo IIalpha in leukemic cells from 25 patients with acute leukemia by flow cytometry, separating cells of different cell cycle phases. We demonstrated that 9/25 samples showed >50% positive cells in G0/G1, and another five samples showed >20%. This finding could possibly provide an explanation to previous difficulties in correlating topo IIalpha expression with clinical outcome. Six of eight patients, where >20% of the cells in G0/G1 were positive for topo IIalpha, entered CR, compared to one of five patients with <20% topo IIalpha positive cells in G0/G1. We suggest that topo IIalpha expression in G0/G1 in leukemic cells may be of predictive value for clinical response to cytostatic drugs.

    Whole blood viscosity in plasma cell dyscrasias2015Inngår i: Clinical Biochemistry, ISSN 0009-9120, E-ISSN 1873-2933, Vol. 48, nr 3, s. 122-124Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Objectives: Plasma or serum hyperviscosity in plasma cell dyscrasias (PCD) has been described as a risk factor for circulatory disturbances. Whole blood viscosity (WBV) would theoretically be a better biomarker but has not been studied in PCD.

    Design and methods: Plasma viscosity (PV) and WBV were measured in 89 subjects with PCD and in 60 healthy blood donors by free oscillation rheometry. A complete blood count was obtained using an automated hematology analyzer. Plasma proteins were quantitated by immunoturbidimetry.

    Results: The reference intervals for men & women were 1.16-1.36 & 1.16-1.38. mPa for PV, and 4.9-6.3 & 4.4-6.2. mPa for WBV, respectively. Of the PCD patients, 71% had PV above the reference limit and 40% were above the WBV limit. Multivariate analysis showed that WBV was independently related to hematocrit, PV, concentration of the monoclonal protein (M-protein), plasma fibrinogen concentration and albumin concentration. This model accounted for 76% of the variance in WBV. When the same model was applied to PV, only the concentration of the M-protein was significantly related and the model accounted only for 20% of the variance in PV.

    Conclusion: PV cannot be used as a surrogate marker for WBV in PCD patients. Whole blood viscosity should replace plasma viscosity in patients with PCD.

    BCRP mRNA expression v. clinical outcome in 40 adult AML patients2005Inngår i: Leukemia research: a Forum for Studies on Leukemia and Normal Hemopoiesis, ISSN 0145-2126, E-ISSN 1873-5835, Vol. 29, nr 2, s. 141-146Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Efflux pumps are considered being mechanisms behind drug resistance in acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). A recently described efflux pump, breast cancer resistance protein (BCRP), can be expressed in AML, but its clinical importance is uncertain. In this study BCRP mRNA expression was determined in samples from 40 AML patients by real-time RT-PCR. The expression varied from negative to 76 times that of control cells. There was no difference in BCRP mRNA expression between patients responding to induction treatment and non-responders. However, in the group of responders, the 14 patients with the highest expression had significantly shorter overall survival (mean 38 months, SEM 15 months) than the 14 patients with the lowest (74 months, SEM 16 months) (P = 0.047). This suggests a possible role of BCRP in drug resistance in AML.

    Topoisomerase IIα mRNA and protein expression vs. in vitro drug resistance and clinical outcome in acute leukaemia2007Inngår i: International Journal of Oncology, ISSN 1019-6439, Vol. 31, nr 1, s. 153-160Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of this study was to correlate the expression of topoisomerase (topo) IIalpha to in vitro drug sensitivity and to the clinical outcome in patients with acute leukaemia. Leukaemic cells were isolated from bone marrow or blood from 94 patients. Topo IIalpha mRNA (n=58) and protein (n=60) expression was determined by real-time RT-PCR and flow cytometry, respectively. In both groups, chemosensitivity testing by a bioluminescence ATP assay was performed to a variable extent for both topo IIalpha poisons and non-topo IIalpha targeting drugs. Topo IIalpha mRNA expression varied with relative values ranging from 0.03 to 14.20 (median 1.10). The median value for topo IIalpha protein-positive cells was 23% (range 0-99%). Cell samples from patients with a high (>median value) percentage of topo IIalpha-positive cells were significantly more sensitive to the topo IIalpha active drugs etoposide and daunorubicin, and showed a borderline value for idarubicin (p=0.08), while there was no difference for non-topo IIalpha targeting drugs. However, we did not find any significant differences in mRNA expression or the percentage of topo IIalpha-positive cells in patients who achieved complete remission after at most two induction courses compared with those who did not, nor did we find any difference in survival when patients with high mRNA expression/percentage of topo IIalpha-positive cells were compared with patients with low values. We conclude that expression of topo IIalpha, determined as percentage of topo IIalpha-positive cells, in leukaemic cells correlates to chemosensitivity in vitro against topoisomerase poisons but that it does not predict clinical outcome in acute leukaemia.

    "Att få sitta ner och prata - det är guld värt": Om professionell pedagogisk grupphandledning2009Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    I en handledningsgrupp kan man få stöd och hjälp att se på sitt eget handlande utifrån. Man kan tillsammans med andra kolleger även få hjälp att utveckla sin professionella kompetens. Att utveckla sin professionella kompetens omfattar, i det här sammanhanget, en utveckling av sitt eget yrkeskunnande, likväl som en personlig utveckling. Syftet med denna studie var att belysa pedagogers uppfattning om professionell pedagogisk handledning i grupp som ett verktyg för kompetensutveckling. För att uppnå syftet, genomfördes en kvalitativ undersökning med hjälp av halvstrukturerade intervjuer. Jag intervjuade fem yrkesverksamma pedagoger, alla med erfarenhet av grupphandledning. Resultatet pekar på att det finns ett behov av grupphandledning som ett forum för reflektion. Att tillsammans samtala och diskutera kring vad man gör och inte gör anses, vid gynsamma förhållanden, kunna vara en metod för pedagogisk likväl personlig utveckling. Pedagogisk och personlig utveckling kan tillsammans öppna upp för ett gemensamt synsätt och en god arbetsmiljö. Det finns hos respondenterna ett uttalat behov av att grupphandledning ska ingå och vara en naturlig del av arbetet. I uppsatsen diskuteras möjligheter och dilemman med grupphandledning utifrån vald litteratur, relaterad till pedagogernas upplevelser.

    Construction of 'nature' in urban planning: a case study of Stockholm2012Inngår i: Town planning review, ISSN 0041-0020, E-ISSN 1478-341X, Vol. 83, nr 1, s. 69-85Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In European planning, the reaction to urban sprawl has been a trend towards concentration, which raises questions concerning the role of green space in the city. The aim of this paper is to analyse how the urban and nature are constructed in urban planning. The paper includes analysis of the comprehensive plan for Stockholm. The analysis shows that the concept of urban nature simultaneously represents something desirable and problematic. This tension is concealed in the comprehensive plan, making it function as a catalyst for change of planning direction towards increased urban density.

    Environmental politics and the enchantment of modernity: mercury and radioactive waste disposal in Sweden2002Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Current Swedish environmental policy embraces the notion of sustainable development and the discourse of ecological modernisation, both of which stress the role of modern institutions in environmental protection work. In pursuing ecological sustainability, the Swedish Government assigns importance to the issue of domestic, safe, final disposal of mercury and radioactive waste; responsibility for mercury and radioactive waste management must not be passed to future generations. This political message is not particularly controversial. Yet, siting conflicts tend to arise when the policy is going to be put into practice.

     

    The aim of this thesis is to relate the emergence and course of siting conflicts concerning mercury and radioactive waste disposal to discursive aspects of its context. The societal context in which the siting process takes place contains contemporaneous, sometimes incompatible and competing discourses. The questions raised in the thesis are: What does the political message of safe, final waste disposal and sustainable development entail? What are the implications of this particular framing of the issue?

    The policy proposing final disposal of mercury and radioactive waste in repositories deep in the bedrock requires local implementation. In the local implementation process the parties involved in the siting conflict struggle over definition of the suggested project, with the core of the conflict being the issue of risk versus safety. In this sense, the local conflict echoes contemporaneous and partly incompatible discourses within modernity, as well as the tension between demands for safety and uncertainties in calculations and management connected to proposals for the final disposal of mercury and radioactive waste.

    The overall handling of environmental threats within the discourse of ecological modernisation can be characterised as a presentation of problems with ultimate, possible win-win solutions and an economic, technological and scientific framing of the problems. This results in a reduction of the complexity of the issue at stake, concealing its political dimensions. In the process of policy implementation, however, there emerge deferred political issues and value questions, as well as unresolved societal issues, all of which tends to result in local siting conflicts.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses the development of Swedish policy for mercury waste management. Starting with a description of the development of the policy for hazardous waste management in Sweden, the paper examines the process which led to the parliamentary decision that mercury waste should be gathered and safely disposed of. Special emphasis is placed on how the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency deals with questions of uncertainties and risks connected to deep disposal, and to what extent the government considers that people living close to the disposal should have the opportunity to influence the decision process. The paper concludes that this policy may be hard to implement. The proposed solution may create new problems which concern to what extent and in what way the local population will trust authorities when it comes to the assertion that deep disposal will not constitute any risk for themselves or their local environment.

    Environmental protection and the freedom of the high seas: The Baltic Sea as a PSSA from a Swedish perspective2007Inngår i: Marine Policy, ISSN 0308-597X, E-ISSN 1872-9460, Vol. 31, nr 3, s. 251-257Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In 2005, the Baltic Sea, except for its Russian waters, was designated as a Particularly Sensitive Sea Area (PSSA) by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). The previous designation of the Western European waters as a PSSA – intensely debated within the IMO – had repercussions for this process. Reviewing the case exposes the conflict between the fundamental principles, territorial sovereignty, and freedom of the high seas that international law seeks to balance. Likewise, review indicates that the PSSA concept is under almost constant reconceptualization as it is put to test in practice.

    Framing and visualising biodiversity in EU policy2018Inngår i: Journal of Integrative Environmental Sciences, ISSN 1943-815X, E-ISSN 1943-8168, Vol. 15, nr 1, s. 103-122Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study seeks insights into how biodiversity is framed and visualised in EU policy. The paper presents analysis of both the visual content and written text of two brochures summarising two central EU biodiversity policy documents. The study illustrates how the two modes of communication differ. First, the written text primarily presents an anthropocentric and economic framing of biodiversity values, whereas the visual material generally features the beauty and wonders of nature. Second, the written text strongly emphasises the threats to biodiversity and the detrimental side of human activity, whereas the visual material generally shows close relationships between humans and nature, with humans engaged in small-scale outdoor activities. The analysis illustrates how various representations of biodiversity intersect in the same context, and that the visual representation decontextualises the issue of biodiversity loss from the human exploitation of natural resources and the concrete actions and processes causing it.

    Global concern with local implications: the role of 'urban nature' in biodiversity preservation and the construction of 'nature' in urban planning2010Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    In urban planning there is a new trend with concentration in reaction to urban sprawl. This tendency raises the question of the role & function of green sites in the city. The urban often is depicted as the anti-thesis of nature, implying a firm distinction between nature & culture. Although, such a distinction is anything but given, the modern definition of nature as “the other” of human society & culture is apparent in the relationship between humans & their environment, whether it concerns humans’ mas- tery over nature or humans as its keeper. The notion of “urban nature” is an oxymoron that alludes both to people’s well-being (parks & recreation areas in the city are often pointed out as important places for comfort & good health) and to environmental concerns (e.g. “green corridors” are stressed & promoted as vital in the endeavour to preserve biodiversity in urban areas). The aim of this paper is to analyze the construction of “na- ture” in urban planning. What are the arguments for a certain nature care in urban areas? What function and values are attached to “urban nature”? What negotiations between sometimes contradictory social, cultural & environmental values are taking place in the planning process? The paper includes a case study of Stockholm, where a new general outline plan is under construction. This planning process evinces a redefinition of green sites & their function in the city, implying a shift from an ideal of the “green city” towards an ideal of the “compact city”. Furthermore, this shift in planning ideal indicates an emphasis on the notion of urbanity, referring to values such as density & cultural diversity at the expense of green spaces for recreational purposes & not least at the expense of greenfield sites & “wildlife corridors” for environmental reasons. Keywords: bio- diversity, urban planning, urban nature, nature-culture divide

    Mercury and radioactive waste disposal in Sweden: political handling at the local level2002Inngår i: Journal of Environmental Assessment Policy and Management, ISSN 1464-3332, E-ISSN 1757-5605, Vol. 4, nr 4, s. 425-447Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper analyses the political handling of mercury and radioactive waste disposal at the local level, and includes a case study of a Swedish community where there is a conflict concerning a planned deep repository of mercury. The analysis is based on two contrasting lines of planning theory, the trajectory of rational planning and the trajectory of communicative planning. In politics and planning on environmental matters, the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is a means of involving various actors in consultation. EIA refers both to a document that provides the basis for decisions and a working process, which can be seen as an endeavour to integrate the divergent trajectories of planning. Experiences from mercury and radioactive waste disposal, however, show a bias towards rational planning, giving scientific and technological expertise precedence to define the issue at stake. Likewise, the process of policy implementation shows a course with weak political commitment at the national as well as the local level of government.

    Negotiating responsible forestry: forest owners’ understanding of responsibility for multiple forest values2018Inngår i: Environmental Sociology, ISSN 2325-1042, Vol. 4, nr 3, s. 358-369Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The governance trend toward decentralization, which implies transfer of responsibility to market actors to voluntarily respond to socio-environmental issues, is evident in forest policy. Parallel to this trend, mandatory environmental legislation circumscribes forest owners’ scope of action. Drawing on the example of Sweden and based on qualitative interviews, this study examined how non-industrial private forest owners understand and construct their responsibility for multiple forest values in an ambiguous policy situation. By juxtaposition of the concepts of governmentality and discursive negotiation of responsibility, the study contributes insights into not only how people are governed but also how they express dissent or resistance. The results of this study clearly elucidate that individuals are never fully controlled by discourse and that responsibilization of individual forest owners cannot guarantee a certain outcome. Additionally, the study contributes some insights into the predicament of being simultaneously addressed as an autonomous, capable actor and subject to direction and mandatory rules.

    Protecting urban greenery: the case of Stockholm's National City Park2014Inngår i: City & Community, ISSN 1535-6841, E-ISSN 1540-6040, Vol. 13, nr 4, s. 360-380Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyzes two phases of the history of the National City Park in Stockholm: the process preceding formal park establishment and the ongoing place construction following park establishment. With thematic narrative analysis, I show that constructing the National City Park as a “place” relied on considerable abstraction. Similarly, the construction of the park's uniformity relied on an organizing principle that eliminated many entities and activities from the narrative of the place. This case study also demonstrates that “nature” might need allies in the endeavor to protect urban greenery. The framing of the narrative in historical and cultural heritage terms was a key factor in the effort to protect the National City Park from urban development.

    Risk and safety analysis in long-term perspective2004Inngår i: Futures: The journal of policy, planning and futures studies, ISSN 0016-3287, E-ISSN 1873-6378, Vol. 36, nr 5, s. 549-564Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyses how the tension between safety demands and uncertainties in calculations and management is dealt with in discussions of mercury and radioactive waste disposal in Sweden. Mercury and radioactive waste management can be seen as extreme cases where modern notions of risk management and control are called into question. The hazards associated with these categories of waste entail a request for safe handling over an unusually long time span; at the same time, it is infeasible to fully predict the consequences of a chosen method of waste disposal. In safety analyses, uncertainties are dealt with with reference to margins, further research, dilution in time and space, the role of nature and by consideration of the risk and prolonged time perspective relative to other risks and even longer time spans. The suggested solutions to the waste problem are moulded and defined to correspond to the demands of long-term safety. However, even though the definition of the suggested solutions to the waste problem as safe is politically satisfactory at rhetorical level, it will not necessarily be successful when the waste disposal policies are put into practice.

    Risk society and culture of safety.: understandings of the task and possibilities of politics2002Inngår i: Sociologisk forskning, ISSN 0038-0342, Vol. 39, nr 2, s. 104-125Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyses three different periods with the Swedish Social Democratic Party in office (1960-1965, 1970, 1975 and 1995-2000). The paper analyses how questioning of modernity and the role of science and technology is dealt with in policy documents, such as speeches from the throne, governmental declarations and party programmes. In this discussion the environmental issue is of special interest, since it in a special way challenge the modernistic ideas of progress and possibility to control the future. The analysis shows an increasing emphasis of the modern in the late 1990s. This could be defined as a modernistic answer to the challenges modern society and its institutions have met during the latest decades. Furthermore, environmental protection work - by aid of science and new technology - is defined as a springboard to economic prosperity, which in turn is seen as the basis for the safety of the citizens. In this line the politics of the 1990s is a reminiscens of the 1960s optimistic belief in progress.

    Risk, uncertainty, and spatial distinction: a study of urban planning in Stockholm2010Inngår i: Theoretical and Empirical Researches in Urban Management, ISSN 2065-3913, Vol. 5, nr 6(15), s. 48-59Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines urban planning in Stockholm, focusing on the proposal for a new comprehensive plan. It explores the problems urban planning has set out to solve and whether – and if so, how – the concepts of risk and uncertainty form part of the planning discourse. A departure point is that both urban planning ideals and the problems these ideals claim to address are constructed. Explicitly or implicitly, planning creates demarcations that make places and activities appear safe or risky, attractive or problematic, etc. Analysis of the proposal for a new comprehensive plan for Stockholm identifies at least three such boundaries or spatial distinctions: between centre and periphery, green areas and other parts of the city, and risky or unsafe areas and other areas. Likewise, the analysis finds evidence of a tension between rational planning and normative ideas of the “good city” in urban planning.

    Abstract [en]

    Social means of risk regulation often only arise in response to media attention and public opinion. In contrast, in the case of climate change, the Swedish government proactively launched a public information campaign to promote public awareness and knowledge of the risks associated with climate change, with the explicit objective of promoting acceptance of public means of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This paper analyses the framing of climate change in the Swedish climate campaign and its communication strategy. What was the message of the campaign narrative? What did it imply concerning the causes, effects, and management of and responsibility for climate change? What means were used to communicate the risks of climate change? The paper analyses the campaign narrative, its references to various affective images of climate change, and the various storytelling techniques it used. It concludes that the Swedish climate campaign relied on a unidirectional view of risk communication and proffered a narrative containing inconsistencies and ambivalence. The analysis demonstrates that despite a thoroughly worked-out strategy, a well-defined message, and the intention to speak clearly, a complex problem such as climate change cannot easily be transformed into a single, coherent story.

    Taking back control: Minimalism as a reaction to high speed and overload in contemporary society 2019Inngår i: Sociologisk forskning, ISSN 0038-0342, Vol. 56, nr 3-4, s. 233-252Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the core ideas of minimalism as communicated in key writings of a selection of American bloggers and authors who have served as pacesetters for numerous people in several countries. The study examines minimalism based on narrative analysis, drawing on Hartmut Rosa’s critical theory of social acceleration and the concept of constructive resistance. The message the authors convey centres on a lifestyle change that was instigated by the discontent they felt in their previous lives, and they commend minimalism as a means to freedom and autonomy. Although critical of contemporary temporal norms and consumption culture, minimalism is primarily an individual approach to dealing with situations of discontent. This can be understood as a consequence of a more general individualization of society, but it could also be understood in relation to the unclear centre of power in the case of social acceleration. Minimalists can be seen as performing constructive resistance through individual acts without calling for organization or collective mobilization of any kind, and without being particularly challenging or threatening to the system.

    Abstract [en]

    Biological diversity is an abstract, scientific concept and both evaluating its condition and, to great extent, justifying its conservation require expert knowledge. Accordingly, regulating and managing biological diversity presupposes standardization and methods for managing uncertainty. To be acted on, the concept must be promoted, passing, in this process, through various institutions, such as intergovernmental organizations and national administrations. This paper examines how the principle of biological diversity conservation is defined, focusing on the values of biological diversity and how this notion has “travelled the world”. The paper includes a study of how the principle of biological diversity was applied in a specific case of insect control in Sweden.

    Transboundary governance and individual responsibility2012Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Climate change is today conceptualized as the most salient environmental problem. At the same time, climate change is an emblem of transboundary and complex matters that traditional regulation and control systems many times fall short in managing. The nation-state is no longer seen as the centre of policy making. With environmental problems understood as transboundary matters, deregulation of the market, and parallel processes of globalization and individualization new forms of governance have emerged. Parallel with international negotiations and conventions, organizations and individuals are addressed as drivers of climate change mitigation. Increased attention is paid to greenhouse gas emissions from everyday life activities, such as transports, recreational activities and what we eat and wear. In this course, actors increasingly are addressed by regulatory mechanisms that appeal to the free will, implying an individualization of responsibility. We can see various ways of discursive steering, aiming at changing both peoples’ actions and their way of thinking. We can also see a number of individual responses to this kind of discursive steering, conscientiously and freely trying to make changes in everyday life. The aim of this paper is to contextualize and critically discuss the concept of individualized environmental responsibility. The paper concludes by discussing the advantage of juxtaposing approaches that attend to the rationalities and techniques of government and studies of how people make sense of and respond to a prescribed identities, since such juxtaposition highlight the fact that forms of resistance are intertwined with the strategies, techniques and power relationships they oppose.
