    Is the Swedish state secular when religious service functions are integrated in public institutions?2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Church and state formally separated in Sweden 1st January 2000. However, their relationships are complex and ambiguous, illustrated by the presence of the Church of Sweden and its activities within several public institutions. State institutions are officially religiously neutral, although in praxis many have special links and organised cooperation with the former state church. There are even signs of increasing demand of the Church’s special competence in certain areas and the state is financially supporting activities of less financially strong minority faith communities within public institutions. The aim of this paper is to highlight the ambiguous relationships between state institutions and Swedish faith communities. Examples will be included from the following public institutions will be included; the parliament, military institutions, prisons, courts, public hospitals, public schools, universities and some other authorities. Results show persisting presence of religious agents dominated by Church of Sweden. The question is raised whether the Church and religion as such is really separated from the state, or if it is more relevant to describe the relationships as new forms of cooperation after the year 2000?

    Kvalitet i livslånga tjänsterelationer: Svenska kyrkan ur tjänsteteoretiskt och religionssociologiskt perspektiv2000Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is to clarify the social mechanisms that affect people’s relationships with the Church of Sweden. Interest is primarily focused on the majority of the Swedish population who belong to the Church of Sweden, but who rarely make use of its services. This aim is accomplished in two ways. Firstly through a study of the ways in which church members understand and evaluate their relationships to the church and the services provided by the church, which they have made use of.  Secondly through applying and testing service theoretical concepts in the church context, and relating this to sociological theory of religion. This is discussed on three levels. On a societal macro level changes in religion are discussed as part of the general changes from agricultural via industrial to a service society. On an organisational mezzo level the Church of Sweden is analysed as a service-providing organisation. The micro level is analysed through a qualitative interview study with 29 strategically chosen individuals.

    The theoretical analysis and empirical results show that the relationship between individuals and the Church of Sweden can be interpreted as a lifelong service relationship. The individual uses the services of the church on few, but from the perspective of the individual’s lifetime, meaningful occasions. The perceived quality in these service meetings interacts with the perceived quality in the lifelong relationship with the church. Even the church relationship itself can be understood as a value creating service through the fact that it mediates relationships to collective and transcendental values and thereby provides security and a sense of coherence.

    Swedish public authorities’ official use of religion2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Church and state formally separated in Sweden 1st January 2000. However, their relationships are complex and ambiguous, illustrated by the presence of the Church of Sweden and its involvement in activities within several public institutions, and public authorities’ official use of religion in certain contexts. State institutions are officially religiously neutral, although in praxis many have special links and organized cooperation with the former state church. The aim of this paper is to scrutinize Swedish public authorities’ official use of religion in a selection of contexts at national level; at the yearly opening of parliament, at official celebrations or commemorations, existence of religious rhetoric in official speeches by the prime minister and the king, presence of public authorities’ representatives in religious rituals and ceremonies. The study focuses these contexts in three selected years 1988, 1998, 2008, in order to analyse possible change over time.

    The impact of contractual relationships to the identity and values of religious organizations –: a pilot study in Sweden2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Part of the growing impact of new liberal economic market rationality is an increasing demand of religious organizations to establish partnerships or contracts with the state. Deregulation and liberalization of (public) welfare services in Sweden has since the 1990s resulted in greater attention to civil society as a resource in welfare provision. While the previous state-based welfare model advocated financial solidarity and equal rights to welfare services, the new marked-based model is based on the idea of the individual's right to freedom of choice and accepts different individual financial capacities. From being advocates for a comprehensive welfare system equal for all, religious organizations are presently invited and enrolled as contracted parts of a system accepting inequality in welfare provision related to the financial capacity of the individual. Indications from previous research show that tensions between their identity and the implicit values of contractual relationships may lead to enforced limitation of the specific profile and qualities of religious organizations which at an initial stage was an important part of the distinctive value of their contribution as social agents, as perceived by both parties. A reduction of the religious organizations profile may be caused by e.g. a demand for professionalization of the contracted services, a demand for toning down the religious profile or a demand for accepting values in conflict with its core values. This paper discusses the short term and long term consequences for religious organizations identity and freedom by entering into partnership or contract with public authorities. One specific question is if these relationships are new forms of state-religion regulation? The paper build on results from the research project Welfare and Religion in a European Perspective (WREP) and a recent pilot study in Sweden analysing formal contracts and written agreements of partnership between religious organizations and public authorities.

    The inconsistent religious logics of belonging, behaving and believing, on the interplay between collectivistic and individualistic religion.2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Majority religion is characterised by life-long belonging and relationship to historical tradition linked to cultural and often ethnical identity. The majority of people in Europe and many other parts of the world have this kind of collectivistic religious belonging, significantly expressed by common rites of passage, especially at the beginning and end of life. But the majority of people within the majority do not behave according to the official code of their religion. For example, they do not attend central collective religious activities on a regular basis; Sunday worship in Churches or Friday prayer in Mosques. And they feel free to have their own individual beliefs. In a qualitative pilot study in Sweden, two different sets of value logics emerged with respect to life-long belonging on the one hand and occasional religious experiences on the other. Church belonging and participation in the rites of passage were motivated by long term collective values, while participation in worship and other one-off activities reflected rather more short term and individual values. This paper considers these differences from a theoretical perspective in order to understand increasing levels of religious choice alongside life-long belonging, thereby presenting a theoretical contribution to the understanding of the interplay between collectivistic and individualistic religion.

    Values expressing unity in diversity: A study of the complex relation between majority cultures and minority religions across Europe.2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The results from the European Commission sixth Framework Programme project called ‘Welfare and Religion in Europe. Transitions related to Religion, Minorities and Gender’ will be discussed in relation to both methodology and findings. The understanding that values expressing unity in diversity is easier to find in the Nordic countries will be discussed together with the complex relation between majority cultures and minority religions across Europe. Different roles of the states are following a north-south divide while different definitions of minorities on the whole are following an east-west divide of Europe. Women dominate in all sectors but differently in different parts of Europe. An important challenge facing national welfare states today is how to maintain the bonds of solidarity in an increasingly diverse society. The question which is furthered to The Impact of Religion-Program in Uppsala is: In what ways do majority and minority welfare providers understand social cohesion and how is it implemented in their work.
