    Entrepreneurship in the polis: Understanding political entrepreneurship2015 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Dynamics of entrepreneurship have attracted growing attention from scholars of political science, policy studies, public administration and planning, as well as more recently, from the realms of international relations and foreign policy analysis. Under the banner of political entrepreneurship, this volume considers and maps out conceptual approaches to the study of entrepreneurship drawn from these fields, discusses synergies, envisages new analytical tools and offers contemporary empirical case studies, illustrating the diverse political contexts in which entrepreneurship takes place in the polis. Drawing upon an international cast of senior academics and cutting edge young researchers, the volume takes a closer look at key aspects of political entrepreneurship, such as, defining political entrepreneurs, how it relates to change, decision-making and strategies, organizational arrangements, institutional rules, varying contexts and future research agendas. By highlighting the political aspects of entrepreneurship, the volume presents new exciting opportunities for understanding entrepreneurial activities at regional, national and international levels. The volume will be of particular relevance to scholars and students of political science, policy studies, public administration, planning, international relations and business studies as well as practitioners interested in the nexus and utility of entrepreneurship in the modern-day political world.

    Becoming Electronic Parliamentarians? ICT Usage in the Swedish Riksdag2008In: The Internet and European Parliamentary Democracy: A Comparative Study of the Ethics of Political Communication in the Digital Age / [ed] Xiudian Dai and Philip Norton, Routledge , 2008Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The chapter presents the findings from a quantitative survey of over 80 parliamentarians, as well as website surveys combined with qualitative interviews. The authors explore the degree of usage of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) by Swedish parliamentarians. They suggest that, by 2005, Swedish MPs were becoming 'electonic parliamentarians' and that this, combined with the growing usage of political blogs, places increasing demands upon party organisations and the Riksdag to consider the broader management and accountability issues of greater ICT usage by individual MPs. The authors argue that there is a pressing requirement for further research on these organisational and institutional dimensions by scholars of legislative studies, particularly, given the developments in ICT-advanced political systems, like Sweden. The chapter was also published in the Journal of Legislative Studies in 2007

    Understanding Regional Action and the European Union: A Fusion Approach2007Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    What do European regions do in order to influence the European Union? How can regions get the best out of the EU? This working paper represents the final stage in the first phase of an ongoing research project aiming at answering these questions by comparing regional actors’ activities towards the European Union.

    The project focuses on: (i) exploring and categorising existing regional action among Nordic regional policy-makers, with an emphasis on assessing the attention given to, and the action undertaken by, these policy-makers on EU questions; (ii) evaluating the conceptions and attitudes of regional actors toward existing and future participation in EU-related frameworks in order to, (iii), facilitate the development of an empirically and theoretically informed model for comparing Nordic regional relations with the EU.

    In this working paper the conceptual elements that will be used to describe and understand regional action are presented.

    The research project is funded by Nordic Council of Ministers as part of the Internationalisation of Regional Development Policies – Needs and Demands in the Nordic Countries research programme and the Centre for Research on Regional Development (Cerut) at Karlstad University.

    Fusing Regions?: Investigating Sustainable Regional Action in Nordic Regions2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper introduces the concept of regional action and then investigates the propensity for such regional action undertaken by policy-makers in three specific regions in Finland, Sweden and Norway. The paper focuses on the changing roles of regional networks and the implications for them as boundaries become blurred, the paper contends that the activities of regional policy-makers need to be understood through an appreciation that European integration is contributing to the transformation of regions and the blurring (or fusing) of regional competencies. There is therefore, in our view, an urgent need to focus research specifically upon how Nordic regional policy-makers act towards the European Union, and in what degrees and forms, regional action is sustainable at the functional level.

    The research project is funded by the Nordic Council of Ministers as part of the Internationalisation of Regional Development Policies Needs and Demands in the Nordic countries research programme, and are a comparative study that focuses upon: (i) the behaviour, strategies and levels of action and interaction of regional actors in EU structures and (ii) the attitudes of regional actors towards interacting with the EU. The study concentrates on regional actors behaviour and attitudes in a variety of policy fields that is affected by EU.

    This paper represents a part in the final phase of this project, which has a deadline for the final report in May, 2009, and are founded on an earlier paper, Regional Action and the European Union: A Fusion Approach, presented by the authors at the NISA conference in Odense (May 2007) and at the Performing Regions/Regional Performance: Regions and Regionalism in and Beyond Europe conference at Lancaster University (September 2007).

    Methodological issues are not discussed in this paper; instead it focuses on the design of the study and the relation between the core concepts. Finally, we initiate a discussion on how to make policy recommendations as a result of a theoretically informed empirical study.

    The Swedish Left and European Integration2008Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper applies a three dimensional (normative, institutional, and policy) evaluation to the policy orientations of the three primary parties of the Swedish Left - the Social Democratic Party, the Left Party and the Green Party - towards the debates on the 2004 Constitutional Treaty and the 2007 Lisbon Reform Treaty. The authors argue that the development of a common pro-EU membership position among all three parties of the Swedish Left is still some way off. The paper forms the basis of a chapter to be published by Manchester University Press in a volume in 2009/10

    The Swedish Left and European Integration: Linking Laval and Lisbon2008Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    This paper (co-authored with Hans Loden) evaluates the policy positions of the three primary parties of the Swedish Left - the Social Democratic Party, the Left Party and the Greens - towards the 2004 Constitutional Treaty and 2007 Lisbon Treaty. The paper argues that the policy discourses and policy positions of the Swedish Left reflect an attempt to link discussions emanating from the Laval case with the ratification of the Lisbon Treaty in Sweden during 2008. The paper was given at an international workshop funded by the London office of the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung Foundation, that brought together leading experts to present evaluations covering 12 different European countries. The paper is based on a chapter to be published in an edited volume by Manchester University Press in 2009/10

    Abstract

    The chapter reflects upon past achievements of the European Union as well as ponders about the future evolution of the European Union as a 'fusing Europe'. The author arges that, at least in terms of policy analysis, EU external relations policy represents an area where the interface between past achievements and propensitites for further EU development are highly discernible. The chapter proposes that fusion approaches and the concept of a fusing Europe provide a useful starting point for theoretizing about the EU's current development, especially in relation to the 2007 Treaty of Lisbon

    This presentation, given at a Research Workshop as part a EU Framework 7 funded Capacities Project on 'Sharing Innovative Practices in University Modernization', directed by the European University Association (EUA) in Brussels, examines the complex relationship between University's involvement in innovation and regional growth and the development of innovation clusters that bring together business interests. The presentation, that gives evidence to a final FP7 funded report to be delivered to the European Commission's DG for Research, examines the case of Sweden and particularly the interaction between regional clusters and actors in Värmland and Karlstad University, which is regarded as a leading innovator in the Swedish higher education setting on questions of innovative practices

    Abstract [en]

    This introductory paper was given at the 4th Knowledge Transfer Workshop organised by the Europe in the World Centre (EWC) at The University of Liverpool, UK. A distinctive feature of the paper, and of the workshop more generally, was that an audience of policy-makers and practitioners drawn from regional bodies and local authorities in the North West of England, were informed about the theoretical foundations (fusion theory and regional action concepts) as well as the empirical findings from the international research project, 'Fusing Regions? Sustainable Regional Governance in the Context of European Integration', funded by the prestigious 'Internationalisation of Regional Development Policies - Needs and Demands in the Nordic Countries' programme of the Nordic Council of Ministers, that represented an extensive study of regional policy-makers in three regions in Finland, Norway and Sweden. The paper and workshop sought to encourage international knowledge transfer and bench-learning between the Nordic region and the UK
