    The Audience-Oriented Editor: Making sense of the audience in the newsroom2018In: Digital Journalism, ISSN 2167-0811, E-ISSN 2167-082X, Vol. 6, no 4, p. 1-18Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Spurred by the increasingly central role of audience metrics in the editorial process, a new set of roles is being introduced in the newsroom primarily focused on navigating audience data. This paper aims to understand these emerging audience-oriented roles and to what extent considerations of the audience figures in editorial choices. This paper draws from a set of 15 in-depth interviews with engagement editors, social media editors and audience editors from different media systems around the world. Three major findings emerge: First, the definition of engagement is almost entirely centered on different types of metrics. Second, while audience-oriented editors take part in the editorial process, their role is to help journalists negotiate between the information obtained by their metrics and their journalistic intuition to make editorial decisions. Third, there is a lack of cohesiveness regarding what these newsroom positions are and how they operate. The paper contributes to the growing literature on the pervasiveness of metrics and quantification of journalistic processes by offering a more nuanced understanding of a new set of editorial roles.

    Take us to your elders: Conflicts of communication in crisis environments in Ghana2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Crisis and disaster management organizations in developing countries are facing a challenging problem: the processes of urbanization vis a vis traditional societal organizations call for different approaches to communicate with the population. In countries where vulnerabilities, threats, and risks are high, the establishment of channels of communication that address all strata of population, generating trust is important to enhance participation and compliance.

    Departing from a two-step flow of communication model and combined with theoretical approaches of trust in crisis communication, this paper aims to analyze the channels of communication during crisis situations in Ghana and how the processes of generating trust in traditional communities is negotiated by crisis managers. To address this call, this study examines the role of citizens’ trust in different structures of Ghanaian society and the strategies used to address lack of compliance in the rural/urban dichotomy.

    This study is largely informed by a series of interviews with nine top crisis managers and officials ascribed to the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) in Ghana. The results show that while government officials convey information to the public through all means possible, a large amount of the population decides to overlook or ignore the recommendations, and points to the importance of reaching communities through their chiefs, rather than approaching them directly. Since there is reluctance to follow a distant governmental agency, the trust in the community chief is of utmost importance, as chiefs become the sole channel of communication, especially in rural areas in developing countries. Thus, in order to reach rural communities, NADMO officials need to approach the elders who will communicate the message to their people. Trust, and more importantly tradition emerge as the main determining factors for successful dissemination of the message.

    The results can be applied to other parts of Ghana and other similar societies especially in countries that still follow a two-step model when it comes to flow of communication and information in crisis environments.

    I stadsplaneringsidealens spår: Platsidentitet, platskänsla och den fysiska miljön2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna flerfallstudie undersöker hur utformningen av platsers fysiska miljö påverkas av olika planeringsideal. Syftet är att studera om och hur den byggda miljön i mindre orter har påverkats av olika stadsplaneringsideal. Dessutom diskuteras orternas identitet och känsla i förhållande till den byggda miljön och planeringsidealens påverkan. De fall som undersöks är de fyra orterna Björneborg, Bäckhammar, Nybble och Ölme i Kristinehamns kommun.

    De teoretiska utgångspunkterna består av olika teorier om planeringsideal samt kulturgeografiska perspektiv på platsidentitet och platskänsla. Två viktiga bidrag har varit Christian Norberg-Schulz teorier om platsens ande, identitet och den byggda miljön samt Bo Larssons teorier om hur stadsideal och stadsbyggnadstyper påverkar relationen mellan den byggda miljön och människans identifikation till platsen.

    Studiens empiriska material utgörs av historiska lantmäterikartor, fältobservationer samt egna illustrationer. Analysen visar att inga definitiva svar huruvida stadsplaneringsideal har påverkat den fysiska utformningen av de mindre tätorterna är möjliga att ge, men att olika spår från stadsplaneringsideal i vissa fall kan urskiljas. Resultatet pekar dock i riktning mot att andra påverkansfaktorer än olika stadsplaneringsideal har agerat som starkare platsskapande krafter på orterna. Hur orternas identitet och känsla har påverkats av de olika planeringsidealen har inte varit möjligt att diskutera utifrån undersökningens resultat. Men resultatet har öppnat för en diskussion kring hur orternas identitet och känsla kan påverkas av den fysiska miljön, vilket ger en djupare förståelse för relationen mellan orternas fysiska utformning och dess platskänsla och platsidentitet.

    Besök och besökare i fjällen: Resultat från en undersökning avseende svenskarnas fritidsaktiviteter i fjällen, besök i olika fjällområden, landskapsrelationer, fjällen i sociala medier, upplevelser av vindkraft och attityder till skyddad natur2014Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I den här rapporten redovisas några första sammanställningar från en nationell enkätundersökning avseende svenskarnas fritidsaktiviteter i fjällen, deras besök i olika fjällområden, landskapsrelationer, fjällens roll i sociala medier, upplevelser av vindkraft och attityder till skyddad natur. Enkäten ingår som en del i projekten "Bortom konflikter" och "Den nya fjällupplevelsen" inom ramen för Naturvårdsverkets forskningssatsning ”Storslagen fjällmiljö” (www.storslagnafjall.se). Utifrån materialet i denna rapport kommer framöver olika fördjupningar och kompletteringar att göras, vilka kommer redovisas på olika sätt – vetenskapligt och populärvetenskapligt. Det är vår förhoppning att dessa studier blir en viktig del i referensramen för alla de beslut som fattas av myndigheter, företag och politiker när det gäller det fortsatta arbetet för en hållbar utveckling i fjällen. För dagens och framtidens grupper, aktiviteter och ideal kommer att avgöra hur hållbar utvecklingen blir – och dagens besökare i fjällen är här en av nyckelgrupperna.

    Toy Story och det digitala genombrottet: Den datoranimerade filmens genombrott och efterföljande utveckling2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Toy Story (1995) changed the climate of animated films of the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, since it was the first fully computer animated feature film. The purpose of this essay is to explore the styles, forms and themes used in Toy Story, Toy Story 2 (1999) and Toy Story 3 (2010) with the help of Thomas Elsaesser’s and Malte Hagener’s theory of frame and window-narration. The essay also investigates how these elements have changed over the course of the trilogy and in which ways the digital progress in computer animation contributed to these changes. The conclusion of this analysis show that the Toy Story-films share many themes, styles and forms but also that these have varied a lot. Furthermore, the filmmakers have used the digital progress to broaden the narrative scope and scale, which consequently has led to a greater fictitious and realized world.

    Det som händer på hotellet, hamnar på TripAdvisor: En kvalitativ studie av hotell i Karlstad2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Den utveckling som internet har genomgått har bidragit till att en rad förändringar har skett. Det innehåll som finns på internet har ändrats och skapas numer av dess användare lika mycket som av företag och organisationer. Det har skett en utökning av plattformar där användarna kan kommunicera och interagera med varandra och dela med sig av personliga åsikter och erfarenheter på ett enkelt sätt. Vi är dessutom mer kritiska till vad som skrivs på internet och reflekterar över vad som är pålitlig information eller inte, samtidigt som vi som turister och konsumenter bryr oss om och påverkas av vad andra tycker och tänker. Inom turismnäringen har TripAdvisor blivit en viktig plattform för denna form av informationsskapande och spridande. TripAdvisor är en arena där resenärer och turismverksamheter möts.

     

    Syftet med uppsatsen är att kartlägga vad som skrivs på TripAdvisor och hur hotellverksamheter påverkas och arbetar med dessa omdömen, detta utifrån en studie av tre hotell i Karlstad. Uppsatsens syfte konkretiseras genom tre frågeställningar: Hur sker ryktesspridning via internet, så kallad e-WoM, inom hotellnäringen?, Hur ser hotellets arbete med omdömena ut? och Vilken påverkan har e-WoM för hotellen?. Detta undersöks genom kvalitativ metod i form av en textanalys av innehållet i TripAdvisor omdömen samt genom intervjuer med representanter från de tre hotellen. Uppsatsens teoretiska utgångspunkter berör user-generated content, elektronisk ryktesspridning, relations- och kommunikationsaspekter.

     

    Studien har kommit fram till att innehållet i omdömena inte skiljer sig åt i någon större utsträckning gällande de tre hotellen. Hotellens arbete med TripAdvisor ser olika ut, två av hotellen arbetar aktivt med omdömena och det tredje saknar helt ett arbetssätt. Omdömenas påverkan är närvarande i hotellens arbete ur både positiv och negativ aspekt, här handlar det om förbättringsmöjligheter samt negativ publicitet. Att TripAdvisor omdömen fungerar som en viktig informationskälla och starkt påverkar potentiella gäster är något som framkommit tydligt under studiens gång.

    Varumärken och mångfald: En studie om mångfald hos olika varumärken på Instagram baserat på deras rasifierade följare.2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The subject we chose for this thesis is diversity and representation. We will study how the diversity of the Instagram feed of brands affects their non-white followers on Instagram. We will also study how representation affects non-white people and the consequences that can arise in the absence of representation - focusing on how the perspective and feelings of the brand is affected. In this essay, we will primarily assume interviews with people who have a certain interest in fashion and follows at least one brand on Instagram.  We have chosen to study brands chosen by our interviewees because we think that will give us the most honest answers. We believe that the interviewees will be more up to date on the brand that way. The focus will be to understand how diversity and representation affect the feelings of the followers for the brand. We will study how people's feelings for the brand are influenced based on the brand's Instagram feed. We will look at the fashion brand’s Instagram posts to find out the amount of diversity they show in their posts, so we have actual numbers to report. We will also conduct interviews and analyze these interviews to bring out thoughts and feelings towards the different brands. We have chosen to delimit non-white followers between the age of 18-27.

    United by Inattention?: A Study of the Official Group of the Party United Russia on the Social Network Vkontakte2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study analyzes the official Vkontakte group of United Russia during the period of January 10 – April 10, 2013. Parliamentary majorities of United Russia have been a pillar of the Russian political regime which, despite being undemocratic, is still characterized by considerable competition. Therefore, the study draws upon the two-way symmetrical model of public relations which is compatible with the catch-all character of the party and the horizontal, open-ended nature of social networks. According to the model, an organization wishing to build an attractive image should communicate with its publics in a two-way fashion and be ready to change in accordance with people’s preferences.

     

    The method of content analysis is employed in the study in order to establish instances of two-way communication between the members of the group and its moderators. Special attention is paid to discussions regarding legislation since such conversations can clearly evidence that the party is ready to react to ordinary people’s interests and preferences. However, according to the findings of the study, the users’ messages seldom received feedback and almost all of their suggestions and questions regarding legislation were ignored.

    Abstract [en]

    In the concluding part of our investigation into The Beatles’ much-debated Star-Club album, Dr Hans Olof Gottfridsson and Richard Moore dig into the detail of what was actually on the original tape.

    This is the second part of a two-part story about The Beatles’ Star-Club recordings, Hamburg, in December 1962. What follows is the first complete review of the recordings found on the Star-Club tape in their original recorded order. This has been made possible with the kind help of Larry Grossberg, director and producer of the Lingasong releases, and Robert Auld of Auldworks, who recently made digital transfers of open reel work copies of the Star-Club tape.

    Skolsegregation: En fallstudie över etnisk och socioekonomisk skolsegregation på Frödingskolan2018Student paper second term, 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Det fria skolvalet infördes år 1992 för att möjliggöra en social förflyttning i grundskolan. Reformen syftade till att föräldrarnas socioekonomiska samt etniska bakgrund inte skulle påverka elevers betyg. Ett flertal studier visar tydliga tendenser på att det fria skolvalet har resulterat i det motsatta då elevsammansättningen med tiden blivit allt mer homogen samt att betygen har försämrats.

     

    Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka hur elevsammansättningen samt betyg, utifrån etnisk samt socioekonomisk bakgrund, påverkats på Frödingskolan i Karlstad kommun sedan det fria skolvalet infördes. Studien utgår från kvantitativ statistisk mellan läsåren 2005/2006 samt 2016/2017. Statistiken är hämtad från databasen Siris, Skolverkets internetbaserade resultat- och kvalitetinformationssystem. Insamlade data har bearbetats och redovisas genom stapeldiagram för att sedan analyseras med hjälp av teorier som White flight och White avoidance, Micromotives and Macrobehavior samt Bourdieus teori som behandlar utbildningskapital.

     

    Resultatet visar att elevsammansättningen utifrån etnisk bakgrund har förändrats på Frödingskolan genom att andelen elever med svensk bakgrund har minskat markant i jämförelse med elever av annan etnisk bakgrund. Resultatet visar således att det inte har skett en förändring i elevsammansättningen utifrån socioekonomisk bakgrund då elever vars föräldrar har en för-och gymnasial utbildning eller eftergymnasial utbildning har minskat i ungefär lika stor omfattning. Resultatet tyder på en etnisk segregation, då elevsammansättningen enbart förändrades utifrån etnisk bakgrund. Betygen har, till skillnad från vad tidigare forskning visat, förbättrats i majoriteten av kategorier.

    En resa till Abisko: En undersökning om tillgängligheten till och i Abisko2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this research the development of Abisko national park in Swedish Lapland has been studied from an accessibility perspective and how companies and organisations in the area is affecting it. The focus has been on the possibilities to travel to Abisko and also the accessibility and information in Abisko. An observation has been done where the the accessibility was looked at and interviews with operators in the area. Finally an analysis of documents which contains information about the accesability was done.

    From our research we can show that an improvement of the transport to Abisko from Kiruna must be done in order to continue the development of Abisko as a tourist destination. From the establishment of Abisko national park till today the development of transport have played a big part in creating a destination. Operators in the area has also played a vital part in creating a destination by offering services that makes the park available to more people. Special laws and rules regarding national parks has formed the way companies can operate in the protected area, but has not been a bigger issue.

    Stockholms stolthet: Stockholm Pride: En undersökning om Stockholm Pride festivalens påverkan på Stockholms besöksnäring.2015Student paper other, 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this thesis the survival and development of a yearly recurring event will be examined. The purpose of this work is to examine how the festival Stockholm Pride has developed and to find out what underlying factors and conditions that lays behind the development. Also being examined is how the event affects Stockholm city’s tourism industry. To be able to fulfill the purpose of the thesis a qualitative research has been used and two persons with allot of knowledge about Stockholm Pride and Stockholm’s tourism industry has been interviewed. Complementary data has been selected in the form of statistics over the number of visitors and nights spent in Stockholm and a project description about development and marketing has been analyzed. The result of the collected data has then been analyzed with the help of earlier theories and research and has led to a conclusion. With these components the purpose of the thesis has been fulfilled.

     

    The analysis of the result and theories leads to the conclusion that Stockholm Pride both as a festival and an organization from its stars has developed and grown in size, however the development has not always been consistent but has had its downfalls. There are many factors leading to the positive development, examples are the hosting cities commitment and the target groups travelling pattern. The festival has a tendency to only affect Stockholm’s tourism industry in a positive way and attracts visitors and contributes to the city’s image.

    Home and away: Immigrant’s home-making processes and media use for integration2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Home as concept is profoundly symbolic and imbued with positive desires. Therefore, it needs to be discussed in relation to issues of power, hierarchies and control. In this presentation the migration-home nexus will be discussed, why also location/dislocation, home and away are important matters to grasp the relationship between humans, space, mobility, integration and feelings of home.

    In migrating practices the processes of homing is accentuated, since migration entails leaving one(s) home behind, searching for a new place called home. The connection between identity and a specific geographical place can however be ambiguous, since we are becoming more and more mobile – physically and virtual. Connections and relations to other places and people ranging over geographical borders can be as important for sense of belonging and togetherness, as connections to places and people in the neighborhood. Home-making processes and feelings of home, in relation to the use of different media for these purposes, are therefore important perspectives to bring into studies of migration and integration.

    In this paper, the relation between home-making, belonging, integration and media use will be discussed, based on an ongoing qualitative study on immigrants/refugees feelings of home and belonging in a small Swedish town.

    The preliminary results indicate that the very opposition between home and away can be questioned. Rather they are enacted in affective, material and symbolic relation to each other and the homing is practiced through different medias to make away present in home, to feel at home.

    Integration of social dimensions in climate resilient urban planning: A case of waterfront areas2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Urbanization demands sustainable planning and building, to handle the strain of a growing population. Strong urbanization is considered as a driver for vulnerability, and climate resilience has become a key concept. The UN 11th Sustainable Development Goal in Agenda 2030 states that cities should be made inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable, making green and public spaces accessible in particular for women, children, elderly and people with disabilities. Yet, a social sustainable analysis is often lacking in planning aiming for the climate resilient city.

    The waterfront area is a place where the tensions between “green cities”, climate resilience and social sustainability will bring the matters to a head, why we will use planning in waterfront areas as an example in our discussion. Waterfront areas have in many cities become areas of revitalization and planning ideals of concentration and competiveness, often with attractive, high cost housing aiming for environmental sustainability and “the green city”. These are areas planned to handle multiple climate effects, e.g. flooding and rising sea-level, while the local physical milieu, for example feelings of inclusion and safety, often get less attention in these processes.

    The presentation builds on ongoing work that bring together literature of social sustainable perspectives - including topics like accessibility, safety, inclusion/exclusion, gender and justice - with climate resilience planning research, since there is a lack of research addressing these issues together. These fields need to be connected, in theory and practice, to reach a planning with both climate change resilience and social sustainability in mind.

    Knocking on the Doors of Integration: Swedish Integration Policy and the Production of a National Space2019In: Journal of International Migration and Integration, ISSN 1488-3473, E-ISSN 1874-6365, p. 1-17Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article contributes to theoretical discussions on how immigrant integration is produced as a part of redefining national policy to local everyday practice, and what this tells us about the society in which the policy is formed. Integration is from this perspective a way to understand imagined social communities, how they are produced, who is considered to belong, and who is not. Document analysis and interviews with immigrants, local politicians, and officials in small- and medium-sized Swedish towns give insights into both what taken-for-granted assumptions the integration policy builds on and reproduces, and what consequences the integration policy have for the persons the policy is intended for. It is shown that the Swedish integration policy is itself a part of the production of a Swedish space as a container with closed doors, where immigrants are not given equal access and possibilities. This is created by putting sameness and difference at the core of the integration policy and by describing integration as an act of entering the Swedish space. © 2019, The Author(s).

    Production of National Space and the Every Day Practice of Local Integration Policy2019Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In Sweden, the system for the establishment of immigrants receiving residence permit is centralized to national level. However, local and regional authorities, as well as NGOs, are important for implementing integration on a local level. Even more so since immigrants themselves have identified belonging as the “ultimate mark” of integration. The place, people in the neighborhood and local practice therefore become as important as practical resources provided.

    This presentation contributes to discussions on how integration is produced as a part of redefining national policy to local everyday practice, and what this tells us about the society in which the policy and practice are formed. The study shows that there is an unclear perception of what integration policies should achieve – who should be integrated and what the objectives of the policy are. The national definition of integration has locally partly been redefined.

    Integration is in this presentation a way to understand imagined social communities, how they are produced and who is considered to belong and who is not. Interviews with immigrants, local politicians and officials in small and medium-sized Swedish cities give insights into both what taken-for-granted assumptions the integration policy builds on and reproduces, and what consequences the integration practices have for the persons the policy is intended for. Stereotyped perceptions about immigrant women and men are shown to be important factors in how local integration policies and practices are formed, which also forms the image of the receiving society and the Swedish society at large.

    Spaces of Similarity – Practices of Difference: Swedish politics of integration and immigrated women’s organizations2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper focuses Swedish local integration politics and the specific ways immigrated women active in different women’s associations meet the Swedish society and local authorities and on how negotiations on similarities and differences are made, with a special focus on immigrant women's situation.

    Four Swedish municipalities have been selected for this study on how integration is implemented and how ideas about integration produce and reproduce both local and national space. The empirical material of the paper consists of interviews with politicians and officials, as well as with immigrant women in various associations and organizations.

     

    The paper concludes that integration may be likened to a space of similarity, as integration is construed by means of different metaphors as a move from something “outside” to Sweden, as a room to be entered. The policy and practice of integration is shown to be based on a (dis)similarity paradox in that integration is constructed on a discourse of similarity at the same time as assumptions and constructions of difference are a fundamental point of departure for the policy objectives. The paper also concludes that the template of immigrant women make real immigrant women unseen and faced out. Their associations are regarded as a space between home and society, why they are often given additional support, with the logic that immigrated women need help to come out of their homes. These facts are something the interviewed immigrated women are aware of and try to navigate through in their everyday life.

    Spaces of the in-between: home, away and local integration policies2018Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Integration policies have been highly discussed in many Western countries over the last decade, both in academia and among politicians and practitioners - and the debates have received new actuality with what was called the “refugee-crisis” in the fall of 2015. In this paper, integration policies in Sweden is discussed, in relation to local practical work for immigrant/refugee integration and immigrants/refugees own struggles to make themselves feel belonging and at home in their new places. The question of local integration policies and their actual impacts on the urban living conditions of immigrants and refugees is addressed.

    The presentation departs from an ongoing study on integration and feelings of home and belonging in a small town in the middle of Sweden. The discussion builds on interviews with immigrants, politicians and officials.

    Feelings of home and belonging to a place is an important perspective to bring into studies of integration. At the same time, the connection between identity and a specific geographical place can be ambiguous, since we are becoming more and more mobile – physically and virtual. Connections and relations to other places and people ranging over geographical borders can be as important for our sense of belonging and togetherness, as connections to places and people in the neighborhood. We are not as place bound today as earlier at the same time as physical and mental borders seem to increase in importance. This relation between home and away and its meaning for local work and policies for integration will be discussed.

    Under flera hundra år har stadsbyggandet i Sverige skett på ett planerat och medvetet sätt. Olika tider har haft sina planeringsideal och dessa olika ideal går att spåra i dagens städer, även om mycket också har rivits och omvandlats. I detta kapitel diskuteras planeringsverksamhetens framväxt och utveckling i Sverige, hur den är kopplad till samhällsförändringar och olika tiders regleringar av byggande vilket förklarar varför städer ser ut som de gör.

    The woman as problem and solution: Analysis of a gender equality initiative within the Swedish Rescue Services2016In: NORA: Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research, ISSN 0803-8740, E-ISSN 1502-394X, Vol. 24, no 2, p. 95-109Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to study how problem definitions of gender equality affect the possible outcomes of gender equality initiatives. The Swedish Municipal Rescue Services were chosen as the empirical example because they offer a workplace where women are greatly under-represented despite years of gender equality efforts. The article analyses how reasoning around gender equality shapes and constructs problem formulations around gender and equality. This article contributes to the debate on the conditions of gender equality founded on gender equality definitions, and how this relates to the potential for change. The gender equality efforts within the Rescue Services are problematized based on Bacchi’s policy analysis model. We do so by analysing the applications attracted by a call for a gender equality initiative within the Municipal Rescue Services—A Fire Station for Everyone. The article argues that, to some extent, the problem definitions in this case undermine gender equality initiatives as they place women—whom they wish to recruit to the Rescue Services to make it more gender equal in a numerical sense—in a paradoxical position as both problem and solution. Nor do they problematize power issues. It is stated that the given problem descriptions do not leave a lot of room for change, but that the method used to analyse the problem descriptions can be an important tool for understanding why gender equality initiatives may struggle to achieve their intended objectives.

    Fusionizing ethnicity as a journey from liability to advantage: A study of Vietnamese restaurants in Sweden2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Traditional ethnic businesses are often associated with ‘sweat shops’ – a token of low-quality and low-tech or as mainly targeting the ethnic enclaves and remaining foreign to the local population. Strictly speaking, ethnicity has been viewed as a disadvantage. The last decades, however, witness changes in ethnic businesses, relating to the expansion of high-tech firms or as a unique case, of high-end ethnic restaurants. This study explores the process of transforming ethnicity from a liability to an asset. For this purpose, we draw upon a case study of 10 luxurious, high-end Vietnamese restaurants in Sweden. Primary visual content analysis of home pages and social media is performed to understand how, and which, ethnic markers are used to express exclusiveness. Observations and ‘mystery shopper’ experience are used as supplement. As a theoretical lens, we adopt international institutional and immigrant entrepreneurship literatures and theories of production of space. The initial findings indicate that ethnicity is transformed from a liability to an asset through a distinctive fusionizing process. This process comprises of two sub-processes: (1) ethnicitizing of home and (2) homing of ethnicity. The ethnicitizing of home produces a space that gathers and displays the most distinguished features of the given ethnicity. The homing of ethnicity is the outcome of not only diversifying but also, harmonizing ethnic values with local values.

    Regional Development, Sense of Place and Belongingness: a Swedish perspective2015Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In Sweden discussions on regional identity and regional belonging have become more and more integrated with perspectives of the meaning of culture and local communities as important for regional development and growth. In local, regional and national policies cultural diversity is emphasized as a potential for development and growth. Sweden is today a multi-cultural society where its citizens have backgrounds from all over the world. However, there is a distance in regional politics between policies of cultural diversity for local and regional development and the actual citizens. It is therefore not clear how policies of cultural diversity are to be applied in practical regional planning. Research shows that immigrants in Sweden often have a feeling of exclusion and that they do not belong there and that they aren’t accepted as they are. There seems to be a gap between policies and the actual situation in everyday life of inhabitants in Swedish regions.

    Research on sense of place and migration is extensive, but there is still not much done on the influence of place in relation to issues of integration. The meaning and importance of place has not been emphasized enough in immigration studies. Therefore, this paper will – from a Swedish perspective - discuss the sense of place and belonging related to a person’s identity and background, with the aim to contribute to an understanding of who feel belongingness where. This discussion is mainly based on a survey conducted in the region of Värmland in Sweden. The results show that persons with a Swedish background feel more at home in the place where they live, in the municipality where they live, as well as in the region of Värmland, than persons with a foreign background. Not surprisingly people having lived more than ten years or their whole life at the same place feel more at home in as well the local, regional as the national level. This can in turn be related to Swedish integration policy and the situation of immigrants in Sweden experiencing a sense of exclusion and thereby a lack of sense of belonging to a certain place. But we can also see that other factors, like if you live in the city or in the countryside), are important for a sense of place and feeling at home. Our results will be discussed in relation to issues of urban, regional and social sustainable development.

    Obstacles and Possibilities with Collaboration in Municipal Public Sector: A study of collaboration between the rescue service and home-help services2016In: The 2016 RSA Annual Conference Building Bridges: Cities and Regions in a Transnational World, Karl-Franzen University, Graz, Austria. 3rd-6th April 2016, 2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of collaboration in municipal public sector is to ensure welfare and safety for its citizen, as well as to ensure economic sustainability in the municipality. Different forms of collaboration in the public sector can be an important part of sustaining a satisfactory service, especially in regions with a declining population, but also to give a faster and better service in all kind of regions. In this study we put focus on collaboration between municipal rescue service and home-help service, a collaboration that can be placed in civil and societal contingency and preparedness for unexpected events.

    Both the rescue service and the home-help service are highly gendered sectors. The point of departure for this study is that the gender coding of occupations and competences lay down conditions for the collaboration, why it is important to shed light on these codings and how they effect an effective collaboration and sustainable implementation. Our understanding is that gender is a social construction that is produced and reproduced through interaction. This construction have effect on how we are “made” as men and women, how we are formed as individuals, and how the society is both symbolic and structurally organized around what is conceived and perceived as male and female duties, occupations and places.

    The results of this study build on 30 interviews with staff in rescue services and home-care services (both employees and heads of these services). The results show that collaborations differ between municipalities, both what is included in the collaboration and how it is staged and performed, and that the processes of collaboration are complex and that they challenge ideal of organization, contents, responsibilities and who or whom should do different work tasks. We can see that conceptions of gender in male and female dominated work are often reproduced and reinforced in many of the studied cases, which hinder an effective service. But we can also notice that the collaboration by home-care service staff is perceived as a possibility for increased status and better resources when they collaborate with the rescue service.

    The Unchallenging Method is a Good One: about Measures for gender Equality and Diversity in the Swedish Rescue Service2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Gender equality in the Swedish Rescue Services has been a political directive since the 1990ies, but has led to few visible changes. The Swedish Rescue Service is still a male-dominated organization with a traditional focus on firefighting. The call for change is made with references to new economic realities, conceptualizations of risk, and directives for gender and ethnic equality. The overriding concern of this paper is discursive constructions of equality work in relation to political directives on increasing equal opportunities in the Swedish Rescue Services. Gender is treated as a prevailing power structure and as an integral part of organizational practices. The paper is based on a questionnaire about the practical work made on equality in the Swedish Rescue Service, answered by over 1000 persons working in the Swedish Rescue Service. The questionnaire contains a large amount of open comments, which is analyzed in this paper. The result shows that two thirds of the respondents have a mainly positive attitude towards gender equality in the Rescue Service, but that the measures for equality are considered as "wrong methods". Our analysis discusses that only methods that doesn’t challenge the present organization are considered as acceptable.
