    En annan stad är möjlig!: En studie om rätten till staden och urbana sociala rörelser i Hamburg2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The right to the city has lately become the rallying cry for many urban social movements all over the world to challenge neoliberal planning, gentrification, the privatization of urban commons and growing spatial and social gaps in city and society. This senior essay studies urban social movements that in different ways advocate the idea of the right to the city. The term right to the city was coined in the late 1960s by French urban theorist Henri Lefebvre, who promoted the idea of the city as a common, a space belonging to everyone. The right to the city is not “a return to traditional cities”, but “a right to urban life” (1996:158).This study focuses on the city of Hamburg. Hamburg makes an interesting case because the urban social movements are not only remarkably active and visible, but also lately many of them have joined together in a right-to-the-city-network that unites various movements in one umbrella concept. The purpose of my research is to illustrate what the right to the city is about, by examining the issues raised by urban social movements, their visions and strategies as well as their organizational forms.The collected data consists of in-depth-interviews with key actors from different urban social movements in Hamburg coupled with field observations. The interviews provide deep and nuanced insights into how the movements conceive, feel and perform the right to the city. The field observations complement the interview material by providing a spatial context or setting, and insights into how the movements go about their work on a daily basis.The study shows that while the urban social movements differ in the way they conceive or imagine and perform the right to the city, they all share the aim of a just city where everyone has the right to take part in shaping the city and thereby also in shaping their own life. The study found out that urban social movements have internal struggles on how best to ensure that the voices of all the citizens in the city are heard. The study also shows that urban social movements consist of a relatively homogenous and place bound group, implying that the voices of the most excluded groups or marginalized sections within the city are still not heard in the struggles for the right to the city. Urban social movements that have a horizontal network structure are more likely to make a stronger case for the right to the city as well as become more inclusive. Furthermore, the study shows that urban social movements uphold the “right to urban life” and keep alive the idea of a just city by constantly enacting and searching for new ways of living together in the city. They do so not by following a priori plans or clear-cut strategies, tactics and goals or advocating fixed ideas about how to attain the goal of a just city. Instead they rely on free experimentation, work in spontaneous and open-ended ways, spurred by the call “another city is not only possible, but also necessary!”.

    On Environmental Grounds: Outdoor Recreation, Place Relations and Environmental Sustainability2015Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis examines the relationship between outdoor recreation and environmental concern as part of the wider issue of environmental sustainability in late-modern societies. It includes studies of environmentalists’ (that is environmentally committed individuals’) preferences and motivations with regard to outdoor recreation, and covers the inquiries of whether and how outdoor recreation can influence levels of environmental concern.

    The questions addressed are how environmentalists engage in outdoor recreation, with what motives, and whether participation in outdoor recreation can influence levels of environmental concern. Empirically, the thesis is based on a mixed methods approach, including analyses of data from a national survey on outdoor recreation and a qualitative case study of the organization Nature and Youth Sweden (Fältbiologerna). Theoretically, it is based on the concepts of place, habitus and field.

    Study results show that environmentally committed individuals favor participation in appreciative activities in areas perceived as pristine, preferably away from urban environments. Motivations refer to these preferences, but also to aspects of discursive context, social identity and social position. These aspects are also found to be crucial regarding the influence of outdoor recreation on environmental concern. Thus, study results also show a lack of support for environmental concern as an automatic outcome of outdoor recreation. It is rather a combination of interconnected conditions referred to as: favorable place relations, adequate outdoor experience and appropriate social context.

    The thesis contributes to new knowledge on the relationships and connections between outdoor recreation and environmental sustainability. While the results are of importance with regard to planning for outdoor recreation and development of nature-based tourism, they are of particular interest for environmental organizations, schools and other institutions working for a more sustainable society.

    Outdoor Recreation and Environmentalism: Social and Spatial Perspectives2011Licentiatavhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Outdoor recreation and environmentalism are interlinked phenomena. Historically, they have clear parallels; both emerged at the dawn of the last century, drew inspiration from the Romantic Movement, and were reactions against elements in the modern industrialized and urbanized society. The establishment of the national parks in Sweden (first in Europe) could be seen as one illustration of this linkage; the protected natural areas came to serve as landscapes for the practice of outdoor recreation.

    From this beginning, outdoor recreation has been a retreat for environmentalists and an expression of “close to nature” ideals but also a source of inspiration for critics of modern society.  Within this context, this thesis explores the relationship between outdoor recreation and environmentalism of today. The study focuses on how people who express an environmental commitment relate to, and use, nature and the landscape as a recreational resource in contemporary Sweden and is empirically based upon quantitative and qualitative data, including a case study of the organization Nature and Youth Sweden (Fältbiologerna).

    Traveling for nature?: On the paradox of environmental awareness and travel for nature experiences2014Inngår i: Tourism, ISSN 1332-7461, Vol. 62, nr 1, s. 5-18Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Climate change is widely regarded as the major environmental problem facing the world today. Due to this, transportation, including traveling for recreational purposes, is now being thoroughly examined. Still, and despite a growing awareness of the impact of traveling, the demand for nature based tourism holds its position in general and, paradoxically, also among environmentalists. To understand this paradox, a qualitative study was conducted of Nature and Youth Sweden, to explore an organization that combines a profound commitment to the environment with a great outdoor interest. Data were gathered through focus groups with district boards and by a content analysis of the organization 's magazine. Results show that recreational traveling of environmentalists may be explained by the practice of placing nature in remote and "pristine" areas. Preferences for places characterized by biodiversity, natural quiet, an absence of other people as well as human impact reflect a desire among environmentalists to distance themselves from contemporary urban society. This desire outweighs one of their most important environmental concerns: global warming. Even though the members of Nature and Youth Sweden reject traveling by air on environmental grounds, it is concluded that environmentalism appears to be a reason for traveling, rather than a barrier.

    Tourism and protected areas: motives, actors and processes2006Inngår i: The International Journal of Biodiversity Science and Management, ISSN 1745-1590, Vol. 2, nr 4, s. 350-358Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Following the paradigm shift in nature conservation policy towards the inclusion of local inhabitants in the planning and management of protected areas, tourism is emphasised as a means to achieve economic development in peripheral areas. Governance issues and the real impacts from tourism on development are thus often under scrutiny. This article focuses on the role of tourism in the political process of designating protected areas. How does the inclusion of the tourism argument affect designation processes? What kind of tourism is being promoted and how can it be conceptualised with regard to human views of the use of nature? An ecostrategic framework is presented to illustrate the essential land-use choices available. Three cases of protected area designation processes are used to address the issue of tourism: the failure of the Kiruna National Park proposal and the successful implementation of the snowmobile regulation area in Funäsdalen and Fulufjället National Park. The analysis shows that while tourism may increase local acceptance of protected areas, the power of this argument also depends on contextual and process factors.

    Bakom väggarna i Våxnäs: En kvalitativ studie om hur fysisk utformning påverkar trygghet2018Student paper second term, 5 poäng / 7,5 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Den fysiska utformningen är grunden till ett väl fungerande samhälle. Samhällsplaneringen spelar därför en väsentlig roll i förebyggandet mot segregation. I dagens Sverige råder allvarliga svårigheter, där klyftorna ökar i allt fler städer. Klasskillnader speglas tydligt i samhället där höginkomsttagare väljer att bosätta sig vid platser som exkluderar de mindre välbärgade människorna. Således skapas marginaliserade områden, vilka ofta nämns som mer otrygga.

    I denna uppsats studeras således hur den fysiska utformningen tenderar att påverka fäders uppfattning om tryggheten, samt oron över deras barn. Målsättningen med studien är därav att uppnå en djupare förståelse, detta genom ett inifrånperspektiv. För att just studera djupet har därför kvalitativa intervjuer utförts med fäder i Våxnäs. Med hjälp av den tidigare och empiriska forskningen undersöks studiens frågeställningar, för att kunna besvara studiens syfte.

    I studien framgår det att fysiska faktorer, såsom områdets skick, belysning samt områden utan översyn, påverkar fäders och deras barns uppfattning av trygghet. Fortsättningsvis påverkas tryggheten även av sociala och socioekonomiska aspekter. Grupperingar och droger är vanligt förekommande i socioekonomiskt svagare områden, vilket orsakar en oro och otrygghet. Således resulterar detta i att fäder utformar restriktioner för sina barn. Studien visar att den fysiska utformningen påverkar fäders uppfattande av tryggheten i Våxnäs. Dock är ämnet komplext, då flera aspekter i samspel med varandra påverkar tryggheten i sin helhet.

    Selling a place in the sun: International property mediation as production of lifestyle mobility2012Inngår i: Anatolia: An International Journal of Tourism and Hospitality Research, ISSN 1303-2917, E-ISSN 2156-6909, Vol. 23, nr 2, s. 251-267Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Buying property abroad is not a new phenomenon, but academic research into the complexities of international property mediation is underdeveloped. This paper adopts a wide perspective on lifestyle-driven mobilities, including the semi-permanent relocation of Swedes to warmer destinations in the Mediterranean and other regions, and explores the functions of international property mediation. On the basis of data gathered from interviews with property agents, the objectives are to describe the organization of the international property sector, to understand the mediating roles of property agents, and position property mediation as production of lifestyle mobility. Property agents are understood to play a crucial role as intermediaries, influencing the client’s decisions by combining instrumental, interactionary, communicative, and social functions of mediation. Because of their superior expertise on property transaction procedures and regulations, area characteristics and contact networks, agents may influence clients’ decisions; however this also depends on their skills in interpreting client expectations and experiences, and the ability of the client to manage the process themselves.

    Strategic lifestyle management in later life: Swedish lifestyle movers in Malta seeking the ’best of both worlds’2017Inngår i: Population, Space and Place, ISSN 1544-8444, E-ISSN 1544-8452, Vol. 23, nr 1, s. 1-13, artikkel-id e1964Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In affluent societies, an active choice of lifestyle is increasingly becoming an option. With increased possibilities for mobility, opportunities to lead a good life can be accessed across global space. However, lifestyle management is largely directed and constrained by structural frameworks, and movers have to allocate resources and experience in order to manoeuvre structures and make optimal lifestyle choices. This paper explores how residential mobility may be used as a resource to gain access to opportunities. Based on thematic analysis of in-depth interviews, this is performed by exploring the experiences of Swedish lifestyle movers in Malta, in their tailoring of mobility practices that allow them to enjoy opportunities for the good life in both countries. The research questions that have guided this study are as follows: (a) What does the good life comprise? (b) How are structural frameworks surrounding opportunities for lifestyle management perceived by movers? and (c) In what ways do movers actively tailor their mobility practices to achieve the good life? The results show that movers are highly engaged in tailoring their access to opportunities through place fixity, such as permanent residency and social integration, and through routinised and timed mobility practices.

    The Best of Both Worlds: Aspirations, Drivers and Practices of Swedish Lifestyle Movers in Malta2013Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    It has often been claimed that contemporary societies are shaped by globalization; the rapid interconnections of societies, economies, markets, flows and information potentially linking all places in the world to each other. In search for experiences, variation, escape or comfort, individuals are travelling, circulating, and migrating between places, challenging the notions of ‘home’ and ‘away’, ‘everyday’ and ‘extraordinary’. This thesis addresses the ways lifestyle-led mobilities are produced and performed, by studying the mobility trajectories and experiences of Swedes dividing their time seasonally between Sweden and Malta. It explores how movers are faced with a structural framework that both facilitates and directs their choices concerning mobility, and how they interpret and respond to these structures. It also explores the imaginaries, meanings, and feelings for place, identity, and lifestyle that the movers negotiate through their mobility practices and through the links they create and sustain in places. Thus, this thesis is situated in an evolving field of research on lifestyle mobilities. Lifestyle mobilities are here defined as those mobility practices undertaken by individuals based on their freedom of choice, of a temporal or more permanent duration, with or without any significant ‘home base(s)’, that are primarily driven by aspirations to increase ‘quality of life’, and that are primarily related to the individuals’ lifestyle values. The thesis is based on four individual papers exploring different aspects lifestyle mobility. The aim is to understand how production and performance aspects of lifestyle mobilities are related, and how notions of identity and belonging are negotiated in relation to lifestyle mobility practices. The production aspect relates to those structures and frameworks that create, facilitate, or sometimes delimit opportunities for lifestyle mobility while the performance aspect focuses on individual agency and meaning of lifestyle mobility practices. The studies are based on in-depth interviews with Swedish movers in Malta, and focus on how structural frameworks and mediations influence the ways that movers manoeuvre, manipulate or adapt to structures and influences in order to arrange their life context to achieve ‘quality of life’. A second aim focuses on the ways that movers reflect upon their identities and belongings as they travel routinely between two (or more) significant places, and how this may influence mobility practices. It is concluded that structures and mediations are both facilitating and delimiting movers’ space of choice regarding mobility decisions. Through their agency, movers negotiate their space of choice by allocating resources and experience, accessing supportive networks and tailoring their access to entitlements. The production and performance aspects of lifestyle mobility practices are interlinked in complex ways.

    Implementing Tourism Events: The Discourses of Umeå’s Bid for European Capital of Culture 20142012Inngår i: Scandinavian Journal of Hospitality and Tourism, ISSN 1502-2250, E-ISSN 1502-2269, Vol. 12, nr 2, s. 164-180Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Regional competitiveness has become a truism for many places today. In line with this “competitive discourse”, planners in Umeå, Northern Sweden, are seeking to create a “sticky” place where capital and people are attracted by enhancing the cultural sector through the hosting of events. By implementing the bid for the title of European Capital of Culture in 2014 through a positive growth-oriented discourse, it is hoped that a multitude of stakeholders will come together in a network of “co-creation”, and enhance an image of the city as a creative and gushing place with endless development possibilities. This paper studies how a development proposal is implemented among the stakeholders by seeking to create positive expectations. With a point of departure in stakeholder theory and interdiscursive analysis, this study explores the role of discourse in stakeholder dynamics and engagement. The results of this study show that implementation is not merely a marketing process, but different opinions will emerge that may contest the “official” discourse, and that the outcomes of the implementation strategy may be hard to control unless the “official” discourse is consciously elaborated to adapt to these counter-discourses.

    Stories of lifestyle mobility: representing self and place in the search for the ’good life’2015Inngår i: Social & cultural geography (Print), ISSN 1464-9365, E-ISSN 1470-1197, Vol. 16, nr 3, s. 351-370Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent decades, mobility researchers have paid increasing attention to the flows of relatively privileged individuals whose mobility practices are largely understood to be lifestyle-motivated, consumption-led and tourism-induced (e.g. Benson, M., & O’Reilly, K. (Eds.). (2009). Lifestyle migration: Expectations, aspirations and experiences. Surrey: Ashgate; King, R., Warnes, A. M., & Williams, A. M. (2000). Sunset lives: British retirement migration to the Mediterranean. Oxford: Berg). Situated within the context of lifestyle mobilities, this paper aims to analyse the significance of place and representations of place in the movers’ stories of mobility. The mobility experiences of Swedish retirees practicing routinised and seasonal mobility between Sweden and Malta have been analysed, and this paper explores how they actively give meaning to their choices and decisions. In their narratives, the movers express their representations of themselves in relation not only to their imaginings of places and to their belongings to and engagements with these places, but also to their mobility practices. The findings contribute to a discussion of how place imaginaries and self-identities are constructed through lifestyle mobility practices.
