    Producing children's corporeal privacy: ethnographic video recording as material-discursive practice2010In: Qualitative Research, ISSN 1468-7941, E-ISSN 1741-3109, Vol. 10, no 2, 249-268 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the use of video cameras in participant observation drawing on approximately 300 hours of video data from an ethnographic study of Swedish family life. Departing from Karen Barad’s post-humanistic perspective on scientific practices, the aim is to critically analyse how researchers, research participants and technology produce and negotiate children’s corporeal privacy. Ethnographic videotaping is understood as a material-discursive practice that creates and sustains boundaries between private and public, where videotaping is ideologically connected to a public sphere that may at times ‘intrude’ on children’s corporeal privacy. The limits of corporeal privacy are never fixed, but open for negotiation; ethnographers may therefore unintentionally transgress the boundary and thus be faced with ethical dilemmas. The fluidity of privacy calls for ethical reflexivity before, during and after fieldwork, and researchers must be sensitive to when ethical issues are at hand and how to deal with them.

    Barnavårdsutredningar av ensamkommande barn: En kvalitativ studie av socialsekreterares erfarenheter2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: Det utredningsverktyg som idag används vid barnavårdsutredningar är verktyget Barns behov i centrum (BBIC), ett verktyg som är anpassat till att stötta nätverk som finns i barnets närhet, vanligtvis familjen, som socialt system runt barnet. För ensamkommande barn däremot, lyser dessa sociala nätverk med sin frånvaro. Ensamkommande barn till Sverige är en idag ökande grupp av människor i samhället vilket har skapat ett behov av väl anpassade verktyg i utredningsarbetet för att identifiera, strukturera, och utreda insatser för dessa grupper, inom ramen för det sociala arbetet.

    Syfte: Studiens syfte är att undersöka socialsekreterares erfarenheter av det sociala utredningarbetet av ensamkommande barn till Sverige.

    Metod: För att uppnå studiens syfte har nio semi-strukturerade intervjuer med socialsekreterare i Mellansverige genomförts och analyserats med en hermeneutisk deduktiv tolkningsmetod.

    Resultat: Resultatet visar på svårigheter i det praktiska sociala arbetet kring ensamkommande barn enligt socialsekreterares erfarenheter. Svårigheter beskrevs som att (i) utredningsverktygen inte var anpassade till uppgiften, (ii) att det fanns bristande riktlinjer kring arbetets utförande, (iii) att det kunde finnas en misstro från barnens sida gentemot myndigheter, (iv) att utreda inom den lagstadgade tidsramen, samt (v) att det kunde finnas bristande resurser för arbetets genomförande. Socialsekreterarna hade även erfarenhet av stå ensamma i att finna lösningar på dessa brister. Erfarenheterna analyseras utifrån Bronfenbrenners utvecklingsekologiska modell.

    Slutsatser: Utformningen av BBIC-verktyget kan möjligtvis skapa svårigheter i socialsekreterares utredningsarbete av ensamkommande barn, då ensamkommande barn kan ha en annan utvecklingsekologi än vad BBIC förutsätter.

    Implikationer för det sociala arbetet: En anpassning av BBIC-verktyget efter de särskilda omständigheter och behov som gäller för ensamkommande barn i Sverige kan vara till fördel för framtida socialt arbete. Vidare forskning bör göras inom området utredningsarbetet av barn som lever i en utvecklingsekologi skild från den BBIC förutsätter.

    Electoral Violence in Africa2012Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In the time period 2012–2013, over 20 national elections and two constitutional referendums are scheduled in Africa. In several of these elections, violence is anticipated to play a prominent role. There is great urgency to support the establishment of effective and legitimate electoral institutions and electoral frameworks; institute reforms aimed at lowering the stakes of elections; encourage the devolution of powers; improve the socio-economic standing of the populace; and devise strategies to prevent and manage electoral violence.

    Identifying child functioning from an ICF-CY perspective: everyday life situations explored in measures of participation2011In: Disability and Rehabilitation, ISSN 0963-8288, E-ISSN 1464-5165, Vol. 33, no 13-14, 1230-1244 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose. This study was part of a larger work to develop an authentic measure consisting of code sets for self- or proxy-report of child participation. The aim was to identify common everyday life situations of children and youth based on measures of participation.

    Method. The study was descriptive in nature and involved several stages: systematic search of literature to find articles presenting measures for children and youth with disabilities, identifying measures in selected articles, linking items in included measures to the ICF-CY, analysing content in measures presented as performance and participation and identifying aggregations of ICF-CY codes across these measures.

    Results. A large number of measures for children and youth with disabilities were identified but only 12 fulfilled the inclusion criteria. A slight distinction in content and age appropriateness appeared. Measures presented as performance covered all the ICF-CY Activities and Participation chapters, whereas measures presented as participation covered five of nine chapters. Three common everyday life situations emerged from the measures: Moving around, Engagement in play and Recreation and leisure.

    Conclusion. Only a small number of life situations for children and youth emerged from items in selected measures, thus, other sources are needed to identify more everyday life situations.

    A science of unique events: Max Weber's methodology of the cultural sciences1999Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Max-Weber's methodological essays, published-posthumously as Gesammelte Aufsätze zur Wissenschaftslehre, continue to attract scholarly attention. They also continue to pose formidable problems to a modern reader. Part of the reason for this is that Max Weber both responds to and draws upon scholarly work that has long ceased to be familiar to social scientists. In order to grasp Weber's methodological project, we therefore need to uncover the historical co-ordinates within which it was framed. A framework of this order is to be found in the discourses over method that took place in the human sciences in Germany during the 19th century - particularly in jurisprudence, economics and history. Max Weber's methodological views, however, did not square with any of the positions taken in these debates. He had other methodological convictions. They were partly taken over from Heinrich Rickert, partly from Johannes von Kries. Heinrich Rickert's philosophy of science furnished Weber both with a general theory of science and with a theory of concept formation in the historical sciences, whereas Johannes von Kries provided him with a theory of causality. It can be shown that these theories combine in Max Weber's methodological thought to provide the basis for theoretical notions such as the ideal type - but also that this has implications both for Weber's empirical work and for the characteristic way in which he criticises the different standpoints in the prevailing methodological discourse.

    Coping with Cancer in Sweden: a Search for Meaning2015Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The present book is a result of a several interconnected studies; sociological qualitative and quantitative research on individuals stricken by cancer as well as a study within caring sciences focusing on nurses working in cancer care. The aim of the book is to diversify the current research in the field of meaning-making coping.

    The sociological qualitative study aimed at investigating the prevalence of religious and spiritually oriented coping methods used by cancer patients in Sweden, which serves as an example of societies in which religion is not an integrated part of the social life of individuals. The study showed the existence of a strong tendency among informants towards relying primarily on themselves for solving problems related to their disease instead of on other sources such as God. The results indicated also the importance of those coping methods which are related to nature and in this way emphasized the impact of culture on coping.

    The qualitative study among oncology nurses shows that the dominant coping strategy is boundary demarcation. Religious coping is dominated by basic trust and prayer and can provide support.

    The aim of the sociological quantitative study was to examine the extent to which the results obtained in the qualitative study among cancer patients were applicable to a wider population of cancer patients in Sweden. The result showed that the three most important coping methods used by the informants were related to nature.

    Culture, Religion and Spirituality in Coping: The Example of Cancer patients in Sweden2006Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Recent research has shown significant associations (negative and positive) between religious and spiritual factors and mental health. Much of this research, however, has been conducted in the US, where religion is an integrated part of most people’s lives. Other studies on religious and spiritually oriented coping conducted outside the US have also focused on religious people. Yet many are non-believers, and many believers do not consider themselves religious, i.e. religion is not an important part of their life. There are also societies in which the dominant culture and ways of thinking dismiss the role of religion in people’s lives. Research on religious coping rarely takes these people into consideration. This book is based on a research project aimed at identifying the religious and spiritually oriented coping methods used by cancer patients in Sweden as an example of societies where religion is not an integrated part of the social life of individuals. The empirical data for the study were based on interviews with cancer patients. Fifty-one interviews were conducted in various parts of Sweden with patients suffering from different types of cancer. The chosen method was semi-structured interviews. Based on the study, the book discusses the impact of rationalism, individualism, secularism, natural romanticism and a tendency toward spirituality rather than religiosity in Swedish ways of thinking on the choice of coping methods among informants. Concerning the use of religious and spiritually oriented methods by the Swedish informants, we learn that gaining control over the situation is a very important coping strategy among Swedish informants. The informants show a strong tendency toward relying primarily on themselves for solving problems related to their disease. Receiving help from other sources, among others God or a supreme power, seems to primarily be a way to gain more power to help oneself, as opposed to passively waiting for a miracle. For the informants, thinking about spiritual matters and spiritual connection seems to be more important than participating in religious rituals and activities. Turning to nature as a sacred and available resource is a coping method that all informants have used, regardless of their outlook on God, their religion and philosophy of life or their age and gender.

    Den postmoderna islamiska feminismen i Iran och religionens tillfälliga aspekter2008In: Svensk religionshistorisk årsskrift 2006-2007 årsskriften, vol 15, 2006-2007., Svensk samfund för religionshistorisk forskning , 2008, 151-180 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Islamic women in Iran challenge the clergy's monolithic rights of interpretation by radically reconstructing gender and Islamic discourses. The result has been the flourishing of a new Islamic feminism in Iran which interprets certain aspects of the Koran's view on gender differently than other Islamic feminist movements.

    In Iran, Islamic feminists emphasize the historical context of the Koran and by doing so reformulate Islamic concepts and Islamic law from a "feminine" per¬spective. They open the door to the interpretation of sacred texts and dialogue on women issues to groups other than Muslims. They wrestle with the clergy's gen der conservatism and their hate of the West. By finding common ground with Western feminists and by viewing their struggle as an integral part of the global feminist struggle, Islamic feminists in Iran weave new textual connections between Muslim and Western women.

    Kultur och hälsa2008Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Hälsa är en viktig fråga för varje individ och varje samhälle. I ett land med invandrare som har socialiserats i olika samhällen med skilda uppfattningar om hälsa och ohälsa, uppstår behov av att fördjupa såväl allmänhetens som hälso- och sjukvårdspersonalens kunskap om betydelsen av kultur, religion och etnicitet i medicin- och hälsofrågor.

    I denna bok belyser författaren, Fereshteh Ahmadi, hur viktig kunskap är om olika kulturers och religioners syn på hälsa och hälsa i bemötandet av patienter.

    Boken vänder sig i första hand till studenter på grundutbildningsnivå samt personal inom hälso- sjukvården men den kan även användas av andra som är intresserade av att skaffa sig kunskaper om kulturens och religionens betydelse för förståelse av ohälsa.

    Abstract [en]

    Abstract: The existential and spiritual aspect of coping with different serious illnesses is one of the research fields that has not been focused in many countries among others Sweden. The lack of cultural approaches in studying the religious coping have paved the way for the increasing of the tendency towards  generalization of the results obtain from research conducted among Americans to other people.  To get pass the above mentioned problem, I have studied the religious and spiritual coping strategies used by cancer patients in Sweden. The design of this research was a qualitative study. The study reveals the use of some spiritual methods by Swedish patients which are not found in other studies. Sanctification of nature, positive solitude and, altruism are three of these methods which are presented in this article.

    This study shows the impact of culture and ways of thinking in using religious and spiritual coping methods when facing stressors caused by cancer. In this respect, tendency towards spirituality, rationalism, pragmatism and individualism are found to have impacted the choice of different religious and spiritual coping methods by the Swedish informants.

    Aggressiv musik som copingstrategi (Aggressive music as a coping method)2010In: Socialmedicinsk Tidskrift, ISSN 0037-833X, Vol. 87, no 2, 78-86 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    I artikeln ”aggressiv musik och coping” diskuterar vi aggressiv musik (heavy metal, hårdrock, punkrock, hård rap och aggressiv popmusik) som copingstrategi vid den rollkonflikt som kan uppstå i samband med att någon drabbas av cancer. Detta eftersom den sjukroll som tenderar att tillskrivas en person i många fall strider mot den roll man själv önskar inneha. Diskussionen förs utifrån två fallbeskrivningar hämtade från en studie som fokuserar på musikens roll för personer som drabbats av cancer.

    I analysen av de två fallen, fann vi att ålder var en aspekt av betydelse beträffande vid vilken tidpunkt under sjukdomstiden som ett motstånd gentemot sjukrollen växte fram och därmed skapade en konflikt mellan rollerna.

    Det är viktigt att se att en copingstrategi är en mötesplats mellan individ och situation. Den är komplex, mångbottnad och högst kontextuell. Vi visar på att aggressiv musik, som ofta förknippas med aggressivitet och våld, kan verka som en funktionell och högst användbar copingstrategi för unga personer som drabbas av cancer.

    The purpose of the present project has been to carry out international studies on meaning-making coping among people who have been affected by cancer in a number of societies and, thereby, to try to understand the influence of culture on use of these coping methods. Five countries — Sweden, South Korea, China, Japan, and Turkey — are included in the project. Qualitative semistructured interviews have been conducted with persons with a cancer diagnosis. The research group in each country has used, as a foundation, the interview questions developed for the Swedish study. These questions were, however, modified to better suite the sociocultural context of each participating country. The results presented here concern only Turkey and are restricted to religious coping methods. The study consists of 25 cancer patients (18 females and 7 males) between 20 and 71 years of age. The results of the study in Turkey indicated that the RCOPE (Religious Coping) methods are highly relevant for the interviewees. A sociological analysis of the study made from a cultural perspective showed clearly the importance of the idea of being tolerant ( Sabr ) for patients when coping with the psychological problems brought about by cancer. The study made it clear that culture plays an essential role in the choice of coping methods.

    Pro-welfare politics: A model for changes in European welfare states2000Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation explores the changing conditions of European welfare states and the underlying driving forces behind these changes. It is broadly based on the recently emphasized notions of dynamic structuring and internal structure of welfare programs, taking into account the new environment of the welfare state. More specifically, it seeks to uncover the political mechanisms behind the changes in public welfare program structure by examining important driving forces at a macro level, then by relating this to political processes at the micro level. Thus, this dissertation is composed of two parts, i.e., a macro- and a microanalysis of pro-welfare politics.

    In the macro analysis, the relative explanatory power of core driving forcesbehind welfare efforts is examined using a pooled time series analysis of 12 European countries for the period between 1960 and 1989. In addition to drawing on traditional approaches that emphasize the importance of political driving forces, differences in the roles played by Left party power and Christian party power are examined. The meaning of intergenerational conflict is also examined in the context of welfare program changes.

    The microanalysis is devoted to uncovering mechanisms of pro-welfare politics by analyzing the complex internal relationships of those pro-welfare politics.This is approached using a theoretical framework of "welfare statuses of rights and duties" as an alternative to the class-based cleavage framework. Also in this second part, Swedish survey data collected in 1995 is analyzed using the LISREL method to check the empirical validity of the suggested framework.

    The dissertation concludes by suggesting the new notion of welfare rights alliance as a conceptual tool for linking the macro-micro-macro relationships of pro-welfare politics. Building on this, a multi-dimensional model of public welfare change is presented, along with examples of how the preceding discussions and analyses can be understood in the context of the model.

    The Organization of Markets2015In: Organization Studies, ISSN 0170-8406, E-ISSN 1741-3044, Vol. 36, no 1, 7-27 p.Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Markets have sometimes been described as vastly different from and even opposite to formal organizations.But markets and organizations share a similarity as well. Both are organized – by the use of decisionson membership, rules, monitoring, sanctions or hierarchy. Market organization creates differencesamong markets, and specific dynamics, which can be explained by the actions and interactions of marketorganizers: profiteers, ‘others’, sellers and buyers. The concept of market organization is an analyticaltool, which can be used for analysing why and how markets are created, why they get their specific formand how they change.

    Male's honour and female's shame: Gender and ethnic identity contructions among Turkish divorcées in the migration context1998Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation deals with the construction of gender and ethnic identity among Turkish immigrant divorcees in Sweden. The author explores what it means to be a divorcée from the perspective of fifteen Turkish women of varying ages and with different socio-economic and regional backgrounds. Being a divorcée is approached as an existential life situation where gender identity construction takes place. The empirical material consists of the narratives or life stories of the women which were recorded on tape in their homes. The author interprets and reconstructs the women's life stories about their marriages and divorces in the migration context. The main thesis of the study is that the women's gender identity constructions as divorcées can only be understood when articulated within the Turkish ethnic community where ethnic identity is constructed in interaction with the host society. From the ethnic community's point of view - a community which functions according to the codes or principles of honour and shame - the host society becomes the 'other'. Turkish women are seen as `bearers and carriers of ethnic identity', and control of the divorcées sexuality becomes accentuated. Through protection and control of women, the ethnic community strives to perpetuate itself and its values. In the study, Turkish society in general and the Turkish ethnic community in particular are defined as private patriarchy. The Swedish welfare society is defined as public patriarchy. The author maintains that divorcées both adjust to and become emancipated from both private and public patriarchies. In the work sphere, they become more emancipated; in the family sphere, they continue to adjust to a certain extent to private patriarchy. Being a divorcée is interpreted on a continuum moving from self-sacrifice to self-achievement. All the women strive to maintain their ethnic identity but all experience tensions in the intersections between gender and ethnic identity constructions. In this study, these tensions appear as struggles regarding definitions of femininity.

    Hur konstruerar media bilden av ungdomar?: - en diskursanalys av hur ett urval tidningsartiklar beskriver ungdomar2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med detta arbete är att undersöka hur de största rikstäckande dags- och kvällstidningarna beskriver ungdomar. Exempel på diskussioner i offentligheten som beskriver ungdomsgrupper och tillskriver dem egenskaper återfinns genom hela det skrivna ordets historia. I min undersökningvill jag anknyta till tidigare forskning inom området genom att undersöka ett aktuellt material från 2008 och framåt. Detta för att sedan jämföra med forskning kring hur media beskrivit ungdomar under 1900-talet. Materialet består av ett antal texter som ursprungligen publicerats i kvällstidningar och dagstidningar.  Jag kommer att bearbeta materialet med hjälp av diskursanalys. Artiklarnas produktionsvillkor undersöks med hjälp av Bourdieus fältteori. Min analys pekarpå att de ekonomiska villkoren tydligt präglar urvalet av material somtidningarna publicerar. Ett generationssystem präglar texterna som jag har undersökt. Beroende på vilket årtionde en människa är född i tillskrivsindividen medlemskap i ett kollektiv. Tidningarna publicerar artiklar som beskriver kollektivets olika gemensamma egenskaper. Ungdomarna beskrivs som lata och bortskämda. Ungdomsarbetslöshet förklaras med att ungdomarna är lata och har för höga krav. Motdiskursen beskriver istället ungdomarna som engageradeoch samhällskritiska. Några av artiklarna beskriver etniskt svenska ungdomarsom särskilt icke-arbetsamma. Utlandsfödda presenteras av dessa artiklar istället som en lösning på problemen med arbetslöshet. Resultatet avundersökningen kommer bland annat att jämföras med Lars B Olssons teorier och tidigare forskning. Undersökningen visar att den bild av ungdomar som produceras är utformade på ett sätt som överensstämmer med den historiska bildsom den tidigare forskningen presenterar.

    Föräldraskap och ADHD: En kvalitativ studie om förhållningssätt till att vara förälder med ADHD, samt till föreställningar om ADHD och föräldraskap.2012Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    ADHD är en diagnos som länge givits till barn. Därför rör forskning om ADHD mestadels barn och unga. Viss klinisk forskning finns om föräldrar med ADHD, denna har fokuserat på deras barns framtida utveckling. Kunskap om hur det kan upplevas att vara förälder och ha en ADHD-diagnos saknas.

    Denna kvalitativa intervjustudie har undersökt olika sätt som föräldrar med ADHD kan förhålla sig till föreställningar kring föräldraskap och ADHD.  Den har även haft som syfte att ge förståelse för några olika sätt som personer som är föräldrar och har en ADHD-diagnos kan se på sig själva och sitt föräldraskap. Studien bygger på tre halvstrukturerade intervjuer med föräldrar som har, eller utreds för, en ADHD-diagnos.

    I studiens teoretiska referensram ses både funktionsförmåga och föräldraskap som något som påverkas av sociala normer och maktordningar. Kön och ålder framkom i analysen som starkt strukturerande ordningar i diskurser gällande både ADHD och föräldraskap.

    Intervjupersonerna gav uttryck för att en ADHD-diagnos kan innebära både svårigheter och tillgångar i föräldraskapet. Svårigheterna kan bland annat utgöras av stresskänslighet och brist på struktur. Bland tillgångarna kan nämnas hög aktivitetsnivå och barnasinnet i behåll. Av studiens resultat framkommer också att vissa föräldrar med ADHD kan se föräldraskapet som en tillgång och resurs. Studien gör inte anspråk på att uttala sig om skillnader mellan föräldrar med och utan ADHD. Samma goda och mindre goda erfarenheter och egenskaper kan finnas hos många föräldrar både med och utan ADHD, däremot förklarade intervjupersonerna i intervjusituationerna vissa styrkor och svagheter utifrån sin ADHD-diagnos.

    Stuprör, hängrännor och rännkrokar: Utvärdering av projektet Samordnat stöd till barn och föräldrar i familjer med missbruk 2013-20142015Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Rapporten handlar om:

    Det är en utvärdering av ett pilotprojekt med fem kommuner som drivits av Socialstyrelsen 2012-2014. Socialtjänsten i de fem kommunerna har i projektet beskrivit och prövat olika former samordning mellan enheter för med vuxna och barn för att upptäcka och ge adekvat stöd ur ett familjeperspektiv. I rapporten beskrivs hinder och framgångsfaktorer i var och en av de medverkande kommunerna men också sammantaget.

    De viktigaste resultaten:

    Alla fem kommuner har fullföljt projektet och har en fortsatt ambition att fortsätta utvecklingsarbetet. De har kommit olika långt i sina ambitioner. De i implementeringsteori beskrivna hindren förekommer även i detta projekt. Det har gällt exempelvis brister i kommuniceringen av projektet nedåt och uppåt i organisationen, hög arbetsbelastning, personalomsättning och brister i ledningsstöd. Att enheterna är lokaliserade på olika ställen eller organiserade i olika förvaltningar är andra hinder. Tre förhållanden som identifierats som hindrande eller försvårande av ett samordnat arbetssätt kan sammankopplats med lagstiftning och organisationsformer. Utredning och insats går inte alltid i fas med varandra tidsmässigt på vuxenheten och enheten för barn och unga. Enligt socialtjänstlagen ska en barnutredning vara slutförd inom fyra månader och en förhandbedömning ska vara gjord inom 14 dagar (SOL 11:2). Sådana tidsgränser formuleras inte för vuxenärenden. Barnutredningen kan avslutas utan insats med hänvisning till att det finns en fungerande förälder. Vuxenutredningen likaså om den vuxne saknar motivation att göra något åt sitt missbruk. Någon uppföljning av vad detta innebär för barnen sker inte om barnutredningen avslutats. Slutligen diskuteras resultatet utifrån en vedertagen metafor. De flesta kommuner i Sverige har en specialiserad organisation. I en sådan organisation flyter barnärendena i ett stuprör och vuxenärenden i ett annat. Utöver metaforen stuprör införs här metaforerna hängrännor och rännkrokar. Hängrännor behövs för att möjliggöra ett helhetsperspektiv på familjen, i hängrännorna blandas ärendena. Rännkrokar slutligen ses som strukturerna i organisationen som underlättar de blandade ärendeflödena. De samordningsmodeller som kommunerna prövat kan liknas vid försök att montera upp hängrännor. Kommunerna kan använda utvärderingen som inspiration för att själva implementera familjeorienterat arbetssätt och samordnade insatser till familjer med missbruksproblematik. Socialstyrelsen planerar utge ett kunskapsstöd för ett sådant arbete bl.a. med stöd av resultaten av rapporten.
