    Försäljning av statliga bolag. En jämförande studie av inställning till statligt ägande under två perioder.2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna uppsats undersöks hur inställningen till statligt ägande förändrats från början av 1990-talet till mitten av 2000-talet. Genom att undersöka den borgerliga regeringens proposition om minskat statligt ägande från 1991/92 med den borgerliga regeringens proposition om minskat statligt ägande från 2006/07 skapas en förståelse om hur de båda förslagen liknar varandra och hur de skiljer sig åt. Till de båda propositionerna lägger oppositionspartierna fram sina åsikter i motioner. Motionerna undersöks och bidrar till att skapa en bredare förståelse för den ekonomiska och politiska förändring som analyseras.

    För att sätta undersökningen i en historisk kontext presenteras en historisk bakgrund. I den historiska bakgrunden diskuteras Sveriges ekonomiska och politiska förändring under 1980-talet fram till alliansregeringens tillträde 2006. Fokus ligger här på de nya ekonomiska idéer som växer fram och hur dessa idéer påverkar det politiska klimatet.

    Genomgånge av de två olika förslagen som undersökningen bygger på visar att det finns likheter men också vissa skillnader mellan de båda förslagen. Regeringen 1991/92 vill sälja av statliga företag för att skapa en mer dynamisk och effektiv marknad. Regeringen 2006/07 vill sälja av statliga företag för att skapa en mer dynamisk och effektiv marknad för att på så sätt skapa fler jobb och bryta utanförskapet.

    Resultatet av undersökningen visar att det finns skillnader i hur de två undersökta regeringarna förhåller sig till statligt ägande. De har olika mål med att sälja ut statliga bolag, den övergripande visionen är annorlunda. Anledningen till detta kan bero på flera olika faktorer. Beroende på hur resultatet tolkas i relation till den historiska kontexten kan flera olika förklaringar konstateras.

    Finansiering av medicinsk forskning genom stiftelsen Therese och Johan Anderssons minne, 1931-19642016Student paper second term, 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In the first half of the 20th century, the researchers in the medical sciences in Sweden were dependent on funding from private foundations. Earlier research has shown that the foundation Stiftelsen Therese och Johan Anderssons Minne was a financier of great importance especially for the 1920s until the 1950s. This paper is written with the purpose of examining how the financing has changed over time, by analyzing the foundations yearly accounts from 1931 until 1963. I will show that physiologists and chemists took a dominant position in the fight for funds. In conclusion, it seems that the fact that the colleague of teachers at Karolinska had the power to decide who to fund were an important factor for the foundations activity. The characteristics of the medical research exercised by the researchers applying for funds were not the sole factor which affected the outcome.

    Rights of Indigenous People in Bangladesh: A Case Study in CHTs (Chittagong Hill Tracts)2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The CHT peace accord signed between the Government of Bangladesh and the PCJSS (Parbatya Chattyagram Jana Sanhati Samiti) in 1997 which recognized the re-establishment of the rights of indigenous people with the formation of local and regional councils as controlling and supervisory bodies over land and land management, law and order, civil administration, development programs; food, health, education, water and sanitation, forest and environment and many more. After more than a decade of signing the peace accord, it did not implement as historically the people are exploited. Human rights have been severely violated in the region for many years of the peace accord though the area is economically sound. In relating to the peace accord, the main argument of this thesis is to present the nature of the exclusion, deprivation, protect and prospects, economic rights of the ‘adivasi’ people especially Chakma in the CHTs in food and social security, health, water and sanitation, education and income via social policy perspective through using both of qualitative and quantitative method. In concerning to the objectives, the study has exposed that the income of the Chakma people in Sonai and Mayni is lower than the rest of the people of the country. They excluded from social safety net program and they have lack of social security. The study has also evidenced that the people have no access to safe drinking water and hygienic sanitation. They live in the fragile houses where have no any necessary household chores or furniture. In comparing to the education of the country, their literacy rate is lower than the mainstream people. In the Sonai and Mayni, health related service providing quality is not so good. The indigenous people need more care and the ‘social policy’ perspective has helped to play vital role in such situation.

    Utländskt ägande i SKF: En fallstudie i utvecklingen av utländskt ägande och dess påverkan på ett svenskt börsföretag.2011Student paper second term, 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Det övergripande syftet med uppsatsen var att undersöka hur och till vilken grad SKF:s utländska investerare har påverkat utvecklingen i SKF mellan 1988 och 2002. Jag valde att inrikta mig på tre specifika områden. För det första valde jag att undersöka utvecklingen kring ägarstrukturen och makten inom SKF. För det andra valde jag att undersöka utländska investerares påverkan på SKF:s finanser och för det tredje att undersöka ett eventuellt samband mellan andelen utländska investerare och SKF-aktiens kursutvecklingUndersökningen resulterade i att det är väldigt svårt att påvisa ett samband mellan utländska investerares ökande ägarandel och SKF:s generella utveckling. Ingen specifik andel kan tillmätas dem, men vi får trots det inte förbise att de faktiskt ägde en allt större del i SKF.

    United we stand, divided we fall: historical trajectory of strategic renewal activities at the Scandinavian Airlines System, 1946–20122017In: Business History, ISSN 0007-6791, E-ISSN 1743-7938, Vol. 59, no 4, p. 572-606Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Although the second half of the twentieth century saw the rise and fall of ‘multi-flag companies’ (MFCs) in the civil aviation industry, our understanding of how some managed to buck the trend and achieve longevity remains limited. This article advances business history and strategic management research by examining the strategic renewal activities of Scandinavian Airlines (formerly Scandinavian Airlines System [SAS]) during the period 1946–2012. The study sheds light on the key roles of private and state owners, rivals as well as banks, in critical financial phases are discussed in terms of longevity in the company. The longevity of the business stems from the leaders’ ability to develop as anticipated and respond to change in their competitive arena in close interaction with the owners. Thus, incumbent firms that strategically renew themselves prior to or during market reform, such as deregulation, enhance their chances of developing the size of their networks and revenue streams. Our main contribution to business history and strategic management literatures is the development of context-specific stages, which shed light on the evolution of strategic renewal activities and shifts from older processes and routines towards customer service and efficiency.

    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med den här uppsatsen är att undersöka huruvida det var inkomsten eller om det var preferenser oberoende av inkomsten som var främsta orsaken till hur hushåll spenderade pengar på bostad och hygien. Det kommer göras genom ett urval på 100 hushåll från Socialstyrelsens Levnadskostnadsundersökningar från 1913-1914. Det resultat som framkom var att den främsta orsaken var inkomsten och inte preferenser obundna till inkomsten.

    Swedish Income Distribution and Wealth Concentration 1900-1985: The interconnection between data and contemporary news outlets2017Student paper second term, 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper holds a study of Swedish inequality from 1900-1985 with specific focus on the half-decades of 1900-1905 and 1980-1985. Subsequently constructed data and contemporary news outlets are presented to develop further understanding upon how inequality was depicted in comparison to data. Through a comparison of the time-periods, the developed understanding and changed stance of the public on the issue of inequality is examined. This method of examination gives new insight upon how the widening knowledge of inequality during the 1900s, through the development of micro-economic measurements, as well as more complete tax returns, has affected the depiction of the issue. The results of the study suggest that news articles of the latter period (1980-1985), tend to be more data-based than during the former time-period, where general assumptions were more frequent. It additionally suggests that the decreased inequality over the 20th century did not lessen the discussion of inequality, but rather the opposite. The news articles furthermore do not discuss inequality in relation to the presented data - the long-term changes are not clearly stated in the news outlets - but are in conclusion unconsciously considered, through the general knowledge of current inequality, through tax levels etc.

    Mot framtiden på gamla spår?: Regionala intressegrupper och beslutsprocesser kring kustjärnvägarna i Norrland under 1900-talet2004Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this dissertation the construction of two coastal railways, the East Coast Line and the Bothnia Line, in the Norrland region of northern Sweden is used as a case study of how regionally based interest groups are formed, and how they gain access to decision-making processes on a national level. In periods when a number of preconditions were in place, a window of opportunity opened for the coastal railway that the regional elites could exploit. Among these was the ability to form a coherent regional interest group, through institutions that created platforms and power-bases that enable regional elites to co-operate and act on regional and national levels.The existence of an institutional framework that was adapitve towards regional railway promotion was also important. The study shows that the coastal railway had a very flexible role on the agenda, as it provided a fixed solution against which actors could pin a multitude of different problems. An important factor for explaining the development of the coastal railway question in Norrland was the ideological notion of the region itself. Being a vast, resource-rich and sparsely populated region, Norrland had almost always received special consideration in both public opinion and national policy making. It also created a remarkable stubbornness among the regional actors in working for the coastal railway. Regional interest groups had also learnt that linking their claims to Norrland's peripheral position had high legitimacy on the national arena, by claiming the need for regional fairness and/or the national importance of the regional export-intensive industries. This was instrumental in justifying the repeated exemptions from the national railway policy regimes that ultimately were decissive in making the regional elites successful.

    Between private interests and the state. Corporatist strategies in the Swedish railway council, 1902-1967.2015In: Journal of Transport History, ISSN 0022-5266, E-ISSN 1759-3999, Vol. 36, no 2, p. 151-169Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores the strategies employed by the Swedish RailwayCouncil to influence national railway policy from 1902 to 1967. The Council was a corporatist arrangement and functioned as a broker betweenindustrial and regional interests and the public railways. The resultsshow that though the Council's policy influence in many cases wasmarginal, there were occasions when the members could use the Council asa tool to influence railway policy, most notably the division of thenetwork into profitable and unprofitable lines, with different forms ofgovernment subsidies. The Council's influence gained from a shift inarguments from that tariffs should be high enough to deliver a return onthe invested capital, to an emphasis on having tariffs that could supportnational and regional economic development, even if it created commerciallosses. When Swedish transport policy shifted in the 1960s, the Railway Council gradually lost its importance and eventually dissolved.

    The vision thing: Actors, decision-making and lock-in effects in Swedish road safety policy since the 1990s2008Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates the introduction of and consequences of the “Vision Zero” (Nollvisionen) that was part of a law passed in 1997 and called for a radical reduction of deaths caused by road traffic. We try to answer the question why the Vision Zero has failed to reach its goals for the last ten years. The introduction of the Vision Zero can be explained with a combination of changes in traffic policy and welfare policy, together with a reorganization of the transport sector that created new opportunities for old interest groups. Our main conclusion is that the strong idealistic and visionary political goals in the Vision Zero are in line with a Swedish tradition of over-arching visionary national goals for the transport sector in general. Idealistic goals suppressed critical objections, but at the same time there were insufficient resources for investments and lack of approval for the policy from actors within the sector, which can create lock-in effects and actually prevent effective policies from being implemented. This might explain the relative ineffectiveness of the policy, and the slim chances of the Vision Zero to ever being achieved.

    Mellan tillväxt och trygghet: Idéer om produktiv socialpolitik i socialdemokratisk socialpolitisk ideologi under efterkrigstiden2003Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    For Swedish social democracy, social policy has historically been not only a means for individual security, but also a means for economic efficiency and growth in close relationship to economic policy. This doctoral dissertation shows that an important aspect of the ideological change of contemporary Swedish social democracy is the erosion of its growth oriented social policy ideology in the post-war period. Whereas a key element in the post-war ideology and the so-called “Strong society” was the conceptualisation of social policy as a productive investment, the ideology of the “Third way” is construed around ideas of social policy as a cost.

    The thesis discusses this ideological change as a dynamic relationship between growth and security as key concepts in the social policy ideology of Swedish social democracy. It argues that while growth and security where perceived as harmonious goals in the post-war period, the period from the late 1960’s can be seen as a development where growth and security became antagonistic goals, and the relationship between social policy and growth became increasingly problematic. The thesis focuses on two periods of antagonism (struggle over knowledge): the late 1960’s as a critique of growth and its social effects, conceptualised as social costs, and the early 1980’s as a critique of security and the economic cost of social policy. It is argued that both these periods can be seen as processes of crisis for social democracy, leading to new articulations and ideological change.
