Abstract [en]

This is the final report of the enhancement-led research evaluation Quality and Renewal 2017, Q&R17 (in Swedish, Kvalitet och förnyelse, KoF17), carried out at Uppsala University between February 2016 and October 2017. The project has been a major undertaking, aiming to strengthen research at Uppsala University through a broad analysis of the functioning of its various research environments, with particular focus on the preconditions and processes that underpin research quality and renewal. 

To this end, an internet-based survey was carried out, in which around 3,700 active researchers at Uppsala University shared their perceptions of and opinions on their local research environments at the University. Together with some bibliometric analyses, the survey results served as background material for departmental self-evaluations, which in turn were subjected to external peer review. In this process, almost 130 ‘critical friends’, most of them from outside Sweden, evaluated 54 evaluation units to assess strengths and weaknesses and make recommendations.

Q&R17 is the third major research evaluation at Uppsala University. The two previous evaluations, Q&R07 and Q&R11, primarily aimed to identify strong research activities and research initiatives with potential to develop into strong future areas of research, thereby aiding the university management in its continuous strategic decision-making process. In contrast to those two evaluations, Q&R17 has not resulted in any sort of grading of the research carried out at Uppsala University, either in its totality or in its parts. Nevertheless, the panel reports include numerous testimonies of the perceived strength and excellence of research at Uppsala University. 

More importantly, given the purpose of Q&R17, a number of areas have been identified where action is needed if Uppsala University is to take steps towards reaching its full potential. These relate to: leadership and strategic renewal; talent attraction and retention; quality culture and control; inter-national milieu; external collaboration and outreach; and research-teaching linkages. The conclusions and recommendations coming out of Q&R17 will form the basis for a number of actions throughout the University aiming to further strengthen the international standing of Uppsala University.

Area-based policy to stop segregation : A study of the Swedish metropolitan policy
Abstract [en]

In the beginning of the 1990s Sweden entered an economic recession. The subsequent negative economic and social consequences appeared more and more acute. The issue of residential segregation appeared on the political agenda and the Swedish metropolitan policy was launched in 1998. As in other West European countries an area-based development programme, the Local development agreement, was initiated. The aim of this thesis is to examine the area-based strategy in relation to the political aim to stop segregation.

Document analyses and interviews have been conducted to discover ideas within the public policy, among researchers and civil servants about problem, causes and solutions. The practical experience of civil servants in working with the area-based programme and in partnerships is also studied. Trough a quantitative analysis the situation in four distressed neighbourhoods is described and the selectivity of the programme within the municipalities is examined. Study areas are the neighbourhoods of Husby and Tensta in the city of Stockholm, as well as Hjällbo and Norra Biskopsgården in the city of Gothenburg.

The thesis identifies possibilities and limitations with an area-based strategy as an anti-segregation strategy. Against this background the potential of the area-based strategy to stop segregation are investigated. Results show that measures in distressed neighbourhoods are needed and that an area-based policy has potential effects on living conditions in distressed neighbourhoods and on individual life chances. That an area-based policy will stop segregation is, however, unlikely.
