    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, p. 249-268Article 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.

    The bright hopes and desoluted dream of Ethiopian women: A study of circular migration to middle east and the gulf states2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Migration and re-migration of economically and socially marginalized Ethiopian women and girls has become a phenomenon. Based on interviews with 12 Ethiopian migrant women returned from the Middle East and the Gulf States, the primary aim of this thesis is to describe and study Ethiopian women migrants’ circular migration to the Middle East. I will mainly focus on how social dynamics in the family, gender relations and economic circumstances are intricate. The process of women’s migration and how the expectations of the family can be gender differentiated are discussed. Further, the migrant women’s power relation when class and ethnicity determine their position is discussed. Relations with the sending family and the issues related to the women who return, as well as problems affecting them at home and in the destination countries, are looked at. Various and complex issues of migration and the women’s roles are discussed with reference to the women’s experiences. Migration provides women with opportunities for social and economic mobility but can also subject them to ethnic discrimination, exploitation, and abuse. The movement is generally seen as voluntary labor migration and it has placed them in a vulnerable position both at home and abroad. Their migration is interconnected to the economic need but also the responsibilities they have towards their family and kin.

    Visibilising hidden realities and uncertainties: the ‘post-covid’ move towards decolonized and ethical field research practices2023In: International Journal of Social Research Methodology, ISSN 1364-5579, E-ISSN 1464-5300, Vol. 26, no 5, p. 549-564Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article seeks to move beyond the Euro/North-centrism recurrent in methodological discussions on what we may learn from the COVID-19 pandemic. Such debates often centre on uncertainty and involuntary immobility – aspects which are hardly new for many researchers. In this article, we argue that the pandemic offers an opportunity to rethink research relations between what we term ‘contracting researchers’ in the Global North and ‘facilitating researchers’ in the Global South. Such relations are often marked by rampant inequalities in remuneration, working conditions, and visibility/authorship. Drawing upon experiences in DR Congo, Sierra Leone, and India, we argue that the pandemic increased the dependence on – and highlighted the invaluable contributions and skills of – facilitating researchers, in part slightly refiguring bargaining power. We also propose pathways for change, arguing for a strong collaborative approach and the need for institutional change, without discarding the responsibilities of individual researchers.

    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.

    A defense of waste: the case of municipal food recycling in Sweden2023In: Environmental Sociology, ISSN 2325-1042, Vol. 9, no 1, p. 107-116Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is an empirical analysis of food waste management and food recycling in Sweden. Currently, across Sweden, attempts are being made to achieve a circular economy whereby food wastes are transformed into resources. Food waste is used to produce biogas and bio fertilizer, and the enactment of food waste as a resource turns the waste into a raw material over which waste management organizations compete. Against this backdrop, the article interferes with research in ‘waste studies’ that highlight transformation of waste into something valuable, and proposes instead to ‘defend’ waste against the CE. The paper contributes to ‘waste studies’ and research on the circular economy by cautioning about the risks involved both in the establishment of a circular economy, and the treatment of waste as valuable. The empirical material used draws on a research project in which interviews were carried out with ‘waste workers’ in Swedish waste management organizations.

    An actor network analysis of constipation and agency:: Shit happens2014In: Subjectivity, ISSN 1755-6341, E-ISSN 1755-635X, Vol. 7, no 2, p. 111-130Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As of late, claims have been made in social and political theory that agency is neither a property of subjects nor of objects, but is instead an emergent effect of constellations or assemblages – that agency takes place ‘between’ various things. The question that follows is how to then account for what happens and what to make of the ‘betweenness’ of agency. The answer offered by this article is to trace and situate agency empirically through practices. Exploring the happening and non-happening of a particular object – shit – I show that for things to happen, a lot of work has to be done. By evoking three examples of constipated bodies, I show that while the work that has to be done is different, and that the actors involved are diverse, agency is located in practices.

    Compost politics:: experimenting with togetherness in vermicomposting2014In: Environmental Humanities, E-ISSN 2201-1919, no 1, p. 125-148Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Emerging from the question of how to live together with our planet, more-than-human approaches to interspecies relations have often presented ‘cozy’ versions of conviviality (Whatmore 2002; Haraway 2008; Hinchliffe 2010). This was usually set against a (supposedly) exclusionary politics of nature, in a move that betrayed a still largely humanist ethics. From the focus on friendly companions, to the attention to practices of care or living-together, the notion of companion species and their entanglements with humans has been polarized towards a pleasant and ‘nice’ version of coexistence. But, dealing with composting, it becomes clear that relations with the environment are never so neat and clean. What are, then, the modes of being together with the ‘dirty’ side of the ‘green’? What practices emerge at the mundane interstices of the ‘big picture’ of a functional ecology? Wasting, eating, rotting, consuming, transforming and becoming-with are brought together in a variety of ways in practices of composting-with earthworms. Reporting on our own and others' attempts to ‘live-together’ with earthworms, this paper tracks the non-relations and asymmetries of the transformations of more-than-human materialities inside (and outside) domestic composting bins. We argue that the example of living-together with dung earthworms sheds light on the interplays between attachment and detachment (Candea 2010), shifting the notion of conviviality from a green and comfortable ‘democratic collective’ (Latour 2004) to a messy, yet constantly productive and on-going coexistence.

    Cooking, eating and digesting:: Notes on the emergent normativities of food and speeds2014In: Time & Society, ISSN 0961-463X, E-ISSN 1461-7463, Vol. 23, no 3, p. 287-308Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyses conflicting versions of speed and temporal work that are involved in engaging with food. The dominant discourses around fast and slow food are challenged and extended by juxtaposing three kinds of food-related activities: cooking, eating, and digesting. Drawing on a wide range of empirical and theoretical examples and dietary advice, I illustrate how modes of engaging with foods also produce and come with specific “goods” and “bads.” Problematizing these normativities, I use the Swedish word ‘lagom’ to denote a temporal and spatial normativity that is always located in a specific situation.

    Empiricist interventions:: Strategy and tactics on the ontopolitical battlefield2012In: Science & Technology Studies, E-ISSN 2243-4690, Vol. 25, no 1, p. 52-70Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Recent papers by prominent scholars in science and technology studies (notably John Law and Bruno Latour) have crystallized a fundamental disagreement about the scope and purpose of intervention in actor-network theory or what we here choose to bracket as empirical philosophy. While the precept of agnostic description is taken as a given, the desired eff ects of such descriptions are highly debated: Is the goal to interfere with the singularity of the real through the enactment of multiple and possibly confl icting ontologies? Or is it (also) to craft new and comprehensive common worlds supported by notions of due process and parliamentary procedure? In this paper we think about this disagreement as a question of research strategy (a normative discord about the desirable outcome of an intervention) in order to assess its implications for research tactics (a descriptive accord about the practical crafting of an adequate account). A key point here is to challenge the impermeability of such a division and show how the strategic dispute, if to be taken seriously, invariably spills over to swamp the level of tactics. To illustrate this point, we draw upon materials from our recent doctoral research projects and to facilitate the discussion we make two deliberate caricatures: Firstly, we operate with a simplifi ed history of actor-network theory in which a strategy of epistemological critique has been replaced by two contending agendas for ontological intervention. Secondly, we address these two contending agendas as distinct options which map on to the positions of our two main interlocutors. In doing so, it becomes possible to compare their respective tactical implications as we work through two examples of what might constitute an empiricist intervention.

    Food repair: An analysis of the tensions between preventing waste and assuring safety2019In: Ephemera : Theory and Politics in Organization, ISSN 2052-1499, E-ISSN 1473-2866, Vol. 19, no 2, p. 283-301Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Research into food waste has shown that around one third of the food that is produced for human consumption ends up going to waste. The reasons for this are many but in reports and campaigns the role of the consumer, their careless behavior and anxieties related to food are often raised as two of the main causes for food going to waste. By way of contrast, this article asks what practices of saving, experimenting with, growing and eating food – what is here conceptualized as ‘food repair’ – may tell us in terms of the specific materialities of foods, and the work involved in repairing it. Drawing on ethnographic fieldwork with dumpster divers, a studio for the experimental arts, and urban gardeners, I suggest firstly that the actual work of food repair is mundane, small-scale and often remains largely invisible. Secondly, food repair is caught in the tension between avoiding waste and assuring safety. This tension, and the work of living with it in practice, is analyzed in terms of caring: caring for the food, for sustainable consumption, for the eater. As such, this text articulates the concept of food repair as a conceptual contrast to the notion of careless consumers and throw-away societies in order to map alternative stories and practices. Rather than offering a critique of known food wasting practices, then, this text is intended both to articulate and strengthen marginal food repair practices.

    Foods2014In: The Routledge Handbook of Mobilities / [ed] Peter Adey; David Bissell; Kevin Hannam; Peter Merriman; Mimi Sheller, London: Routledge, 2014Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In a book that explores global transportations and mobilities, food definitely deserves to be included.1 Over the last few decades, the total mileage that food travels across the globe – difficult to imagine, let alone calculate – has not just risen, but also become increasingly contested ( Jackson et al., 2006). Many decry that all in all food travels far too far. But how does it do so? How does it move across the globe? The answer is: in many different ways. It moves out and it moves in. It moves fresh and it moves cooked. It moves as ingredients and as a recipe. The implication is that, more often than not, on any single plate many places come together. Here, we will illustrate the topological complexity of ordinary meals by presenting a mundane but intricate case: that of Pizza Hawaii.

    Abstract [en]

    In the early 21st century quite a few social scientists and scholars in the humanities are arguing that we should pay more attention to things material. For, as they say, not only humans act but so, too, do materials. Joining this discussion, in this paper we will use the case of omega-3 fatty acids to address the questions of how materials may act; in which ways this is relevant; and what is linked up with it. Hence, we will come to speak about research in prisons where inmates were badly nourished; fish being caught in the Global South for Scandinavian fish pills; and the urgency of shifting from the verb ‘to act’ to a differentiated list of modes of doing. Learning from the natural sciences, we will argue, requires that their methods and concerns be carefully attended to. Taking matters seriously comes with the obligation of tracing where such matters come from and where they go. And talking about ‘action’, finally, demands that, beyond liberal notions of isolated individual actors, it be creatively retheorised.

    Becoming stronger by becoming weaker: the hunger strike as a mode of doing politics2019In: Journal of International Relations and Development, ISSN 1408-6980, E-ISSN 1581-1980, Vol. 22, no 4, p. 882-898Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing on Judith Butler’s work and a series of studies associated with actor–network theory (ANT), this paper engages with political agency through the concept of performativity. Based on the empirical analysis of a hunger strike that took place in Brussels in 2012 and involved 23 illegal immigrants, we aim to achieve three things. First, we foreground physical bodies as political entities caught up in multiple modes of doing politics. Second, we show how such modes relate to one another, reinforcing citizenship, activism and party politics as specific performances of agency associated with liberal democracy. Finally, we argue that the Brussels hunger strike also challenges these performances by failing to meet certain expectations about what it is to be political/act politically. As the European refugee crisis is generating louder and louder voices, hunger strikes sensitise us to modes of doing that work by becoming passive, silent, weak and vulnerable. Such processes, we suggest, expand the standard repertoire of modes of doing and may refigure our understanding of the interaction between transnational and liberal democratic politics—in International Relations, ANT and beyond.

    The Swedish COVID-19 Enigma/Exception2022In: COVID-19 and a World of Ad Hoc Geographies / [ed] Brunn, D. Stanley & Gilbreath, Donna, Cham: Springer, 2022, p. 97-112Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    During the COVID-19 pandemic Sweden stood out globally as a country that persistently refused to take drastic measures like proclaiming a curfew or a lockdown on public and commercial facilities. Instead, a “softer” approach was chosen. The population was only recommended to restrain as much as possible from social contact as well as other cautionary measures. In this chapter this Swedish “exception” is addressed, with a focus on regional differences. Much political and media focus has been on the spread of COVID-19 in the large postindustrial cities. Instead, we focus on the situation in the sparsely populated northern part, Sápmi, once colonized by the Swedish kingdom. Here, the city of Gällivare was severely affected by the virus. In symbiosis with the state-controlled mining industry, the community had a steady national and international inflow of mining-related personnel which resulted in one of the highest infection rates per capita nationally.

    Rätten till goda levnadsvillkor: En kvalitativ studie av förvaltningsrättens domar kring rätten till LSS insats2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Sammanfattning:

    Syftet med denna uppsats var att undersöka hur funktionshindradepersonersrättigheter enligt SFS 1993:387 Lagen om stöd och service till vissa funktionshindrade (LSS) befästs eller eventuellt urholkas inom ramen för beslut som fattasinom offentlig förvaltning. Det empiriska materialet i denna studie bestod av tolv rättsfall från förvaltningsrätten. En kvalitativ abduktiv ansats användes, där en socialkonstruktionistisk grundsyn och Nancy Frasers kritiska perspektiv på kampen om behoven i ett senkapitalistiskt välfärdssamhälle utgjorde förståelseramen genom analysprocessen, vilken utgjordes av en kombination av kritisk diskursanalys och tematisk analysprocess. Detta tillvägagångssättbedömdes användbart för attidentifiera diskurser som kom till uttryck genom resonemangen förda kring innebörden av begreppet “goda levnadsvillkor”, vilket var centralt för undersökningen.Forskningsansatsen möjliggjorde även ett synliggörande avojämlika sociala maktrelationer och maktordningar som kan anses framträda inom LSS domar. Genom att relatera undersökningensfynd till tidigare forskning kring problemområdet har fynden kunnattolkas och förståsur ett större sammanhangoch på så sätt har rimliga slutsatser kunnat dras utifrån frågeställningen. Resultatet av studienhar formulerats genom följande diskurser: diskursen om definitionen och tolkningen av behoven, diskursen om behovet av social gemenskap och att “komma ut i samhället”, fritidsaktivitetsdiskurs & normal livsföringsdiskurs, juridisk diskurs, anhörig-och familjediskurs, samt diskursen om frigörelse, självständighet och normal livsföring.Dessa diskurser anses vara möjliga tolkningar avstudiensempiri samt möjliga exempel på vad en större forskning som omfattar ett större material skulle kunna komma fram till.Undersökningen har lett till ett konstaterande om att ett grundläggande antagande hos beslutsfattare tycks vara att LSS ska tolkas restriktivt. I denna studie relateras denna restriktiva tillämpning till en nyliberalistisk politisk syn vilken anses gradvis ha bidragit till att konstruera om politikers och beslutsfattares förståelse av syftet med LSS åt det restriktiva hållet, vilket kan anses urholka det ursprungliga syftet med LSS, som det beskrevs då lagen först infördes.

    Vad gör en kund problematisk?: En komparativ kvalitativ studie av problematiskt kundbeteende vid studentverksamheter kopplade till KTH och Lunds universitet2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Att definiera vad som utgör ett problematiskt kundbeteende kan vara en utmaning. Uppfattningar och upplevelser av fenomenet anses vara bundet till den individ som definierar det. Forskning inom fältet hävdar att detta gör det svårt att ge en konkret universell definition av fenomenet då dess definition kan variera mellan person, stad, bransch och land. Inom kommersiella serviceverksamheter är problematiskt kundbeteende ett väl studerat och dokumenterat fenomen, med bristande kunskap om hur fenomenet ter sig inom ideellt drivna serviceverksamheter. Därmed har syftet med denna studie varit att belysa hur ideellt arbetande servicepersonal definierar och hanterar problematiskt kundbeteende inom kontext av sitt ideella arbete. För att utföra denna studie har ideellt drivna studentnationer och studentpubar kopplade till Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan och Lunds universitet valts. Studien genomförde sex semistrukturerade intervjuer med studenter arbetandes vid studentnationer och studentpubar kopplade till Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan och Lunds universitet. Studien använde en fenomenologisk ansats för att förstå studenternas definition och upplevelser av problematiskt kundbeteende. Vidare användes en abduktiv ansats med hjälp av Erving Goffmans frame analysis för att strukturera studenternas subjektiva erfarenheter av fenomenet. Studiens resultat tyder på att de två lärosätena uppvisade en större grad av likheter än skillnader när det gällde deras tillvägagångssätt för att definiera och hantera problematiskt kundbeteende. Trots att studenterna kunde presentera en tydlig och koncis definition av fenomenet hade de svårigheter att tillämpa denna kunskap i praktiken. Det faktum att studenterna var engagerade i ideellt arbete hade ingen betydande inverkan på deras definition och hantering av problematiskt kundbeteende.

    Sanning eller Fördom?: En diskursanalys av identiteten "invandrare" i två svenska nyhetsmedier2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med uppsatsen var att undersöka hur identiteten “invandrare” konstrueras, samt vilka diskurser kring “invandrare” som framträder, i svenska nyhetsmedier under mars månad 2017. Vi ämnar belysa hur den aktuella diskursen ser ut. Då vi lever i en alltmer globaliserad värld där vi interagerar med människor från andra kulturer blir det än viktigare att vara medveten om hur diskurser kring andra människor förs. Med hjälp av diskursanalys, i kombination med en kvalitativ och socialkonstruktivistisk ansats, tillsammans med postkolonialism och orientalism samt gestaltningsteorin, har vi analyserat 19 artiklar som publicerades under mars 2017 i Aftonbladet och Dagens Nyheter. I resultatet besvaras frågeställningarna: Hur konstrueras identiteten “invandrare” i det analyserade materialet? och Vilka diskurser framträder i analysen? Analysen visar att identiteten “invandrare” är starkt förknippad med negativa aspekter, trots att det finns de som försöker erbjuda en alternativ bild. Det framkommer även att integrationsdiskursen är dominerande, utan att för den delen vara fristående från de tre övriga diskurserna, förorten, problem och motverka fördomar. Inom diskurserna framträder “invandraren” nästan uteslutande i samband med sociala problem, vilket tolkas härstamma från postkoloniala tankar om de Andra. Resultatet bryter något från tidigare forskning på området i och med att vi identifierar en diskurs med positiva förtecken som erbjuder motstånd mot de övriga diskurserna.

    Idioter väljer att sätta ord i våra munnar: En kvalitativ fokusgruppstudie om hur unga män med utländsk bakgrund från socioekonomiskt utsatta områden upplever massmedias rapportering2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie handlar om hur unga män med utländsk bakgrund bosatta i socioekonomisktutsatta områden upplever massmedia och dess föreställning gentemot området de bor i.

    Studien är kvalitativ genom fokusgruppsintervjuer och berör frågor om hur dessa unga mänmed utländsk bakgrund beskrivs, hur massmedia talar om socioekonomiskt utsatta områdensamt hur massmedia spelar en roll i rapporteringen av dessa ovanstående faktorer.

    Vi kom fram till att dessa unga män med utländsk bakgrund bosatta i socioekonomiskt utsattaområden upplever att massmedia målar upp och reproducerar en övervägande negativ bild avde och området de bor i. De talar mycket kring sina egna känslor och hur upplevelsernapåverkar dem samt hur de speglar sig i deras liv.

    Ungdomsbrottslighet: En kvalitativ forskning om kriminella ungdomars upplevelser i socio-ekonomiskt utsatta områden2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats behandlar ett ämne som jag har sett diskuteras och debatteras mycket i nyhetstidningar, sociala medier, arbetsplatser och i olika sammankomster där människor möts – Ungdomskriminalitet!

    Genom den kvalitativa forskningsmetoden ville jag ta reda på hur ungdomar med kriminell bakgrund ser på sina livsval och kartlägga hur arbetet med och för ungdomar med kriminell bakgrund kan te sig hos svenska myndigheter.  Sammanfattningsvis visar min studie på att det finns olika orsaker – bostadsområde, skola, arbete, socialt nätverk samt familjeförhållande är av betydelse för hur våra liv kommer att formas i framtiden. Denna studie visar på vikten av samverkan, men ger också en inblick i hur verkligheten ser ut för många ungdomar i dagens samhälle, där bl.a. ekonomisk- och social status leder till att ungdomar begår brott i tidig ålder. Jag har intervjuat fem killar som bor i vad man definierar som socio-ekonomiskt utsatta områden i Stockholm. Jag lyfter deras berättelser och analyserar resultatet så att läsaren kan få en helhetsbild av ungdomskriminaliteten i socio-ekonomiskt utsatta områden. Vidare lyfter jag deras egna upplevelser och förklarar dem med hjälp av sociologiska teorier/begrepp så som – konsumtion, socialisering och kapital.

    Konflikthantering och kommunikation inom hälso- och sjukvården: Hur medarbetare uppfattar konflikthanteringen och kommunikationen i det dagliga arbetet2021Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studien ämnar undersöka medarbetarnas upplevelser av hur kommunikation och konflikthanteringen av arbetsrelaterade konflikter sköts på den egna avdelningen. Detta görs genom kvalitativa semi-strukturerade intervjuer. Den valda teoretiska utgångspunkten omfattar Thomas Jordans (2019) teorier om Samarbetskultur samt Tre konflikt ansatser som tillämpas på tre konfliktnivåer om: individnivå, relationsnivå och systemnivå. 

    Resultatet visar på brister i konflikhanteringsstrategier som respektive chef och medarbetare utgår ifrån i sin problemlösning. Kommunikationsstörningar förekommer vilket påverkar arbetet jämte relationer och försvårar samarbete och återkoppling. Resultatet har vidare visat konflikter på samtliga nivåer om individ, relation och systemnivå. Detta kan indikera på ett behov av förändringsarbete i bland annat organisationsstrukturen på exempelvis arbetskultur, arbetsorganisation och kommunikationsmönster.

    Is the Positive Effect of Education on Ethnic Tolerance a Method Artifact?: A Multifactorial Survey Experiment on Social Desirability Bias in Sweden2023In: International journal of public opinion research, ISSN 0954-2892, E-ISSN 1471-6909, Vol. 35, no 4, article id edad029Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Educated individuals are believed to be more tolerant towards ethnic minorities-a finding widely inferred from standard survey items. We propose a new approach that helps mitigate the risk of socially desirability bias (SDB), using a multifactorial survey experiment with name-based vignette dimensions. The experiment is strategically inserted into a question about a social dilemma not related to ethnicity. By embedding our experiment into an established survey-the Swedish part of the European Values Survey-we show that individuals with a high level of education are more tolerant towards ethnic minorities, even under a lower risk of SDB. The study strengthens findings in prior research and supports the hypothesis that education can further ethnic tolerance.

    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, p. 1230-1244Article 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.

    Mothers with cognitive limitations who have children in placement benefit from intervention2021In: Child & Family Social Work, ISSN 1356-7500, E-ISSN 1365-2206, Vol. 26, no 1, p. 79-88Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Mothers with cognitive limitations who have children in placement need to be listened to and to receive help in understanding and dealing with their situation. A support programme for this group was developed in Australia and then adapted for use in a Swedish context and named 'Mamma Trots Allt' (MTA). The aim was to examine the experiences of these mothers regarding their mothering role after participation in MTA. An explorative and qualitative design was used. Inclusion criteria were mothers with cognitive limitations, a child in placement and participation in MTA. Nine mothers, eight of them from a previous study, gave their informed consent to participate. A study-specific interview guide was adapted to people with cognitive limitations. The interviews took place after the final MTA session. The qualitative analyses resulted in a description of the mothers' experiences and how they changed after MTA, resulting in an overall theme, two subthemes, four categories and 11 subcategories. MTA facilitated the mothers' maturation and broadened their earlier, stereotypic life expectations. Offering a support programme benefits not only the mother but most likely the child as well.

    A father nevertheless: Self-confident but resigned fathers with children in foster care2023In: Journal of Intellectual Disabilities, ISSN 1744-6295, E-ISSN 1744-6309Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This qualitative study aimed to explore the experiences of nine fathers with neurodevelopmental disabilities with children in foster care, including their fathering role, visits and formal and informal support. Systematic text condensation was the analysis method used. The respondents’ experience of fatherhood revealed two categories: I accept my situation and I am frustrated. Though self-confident, the fathers expressed ambivalence between acceptance and frustration with their role. The study shows that more should be done to provide adapted support for these vulnerable fathers with children in foster care, although they seldom demand such support. Social workers and professionals from the rehabilitation team within the healthcare service should be aware of gendered settings, specifically norms of masculinity. Increased efforts from the social workers may reduce the risks of detachment in parenthood because engaged and informed fathers are in the children’s best interests.

    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.

    Abstract [en]

    Ethnology is a disciplinary field that is more or less interwoven with anthropology. Its main focus is the analysis of various cultures and cultural expressions, usually within a national context. In practice, ethnologists favor an approach toward culture from the individual perspective, with a key interest in how single ordinary individuals, seen as active cultural beings, think and act in their everyday lives. This implies that they are both shaped by and contributors to the shaping of cultures in their everyday lives. However, within ethnology, culture viewed as a bidirectional phenomenon is not merely regarded as an individual process. Rather, it is regarded as something that occurs in collective social contexts. When analyzing culture, ethnologists usually employ a combined focus on its ideational and folkloric aspects as well as aspects of materiality, locality, and identity. Ethnology's general methodological approaches comprise ethnographic fieldwork as well as studies of artifacts and sociocultural structures.

    Pulsmätningar - länken mellan ledningen och medarbetare: En kvalitativ studie om arbetsgivares perspektiv på pulsmätningar2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Vi lever i ett samhälle där organisationer under de senaste decennierna har blivit mer vinstfokuserade på grund av avkastningskrav till aktieägare. I och med detta har vi sett ökade kontroll- och mätmekanismer, inte minst av medarbetarnas prestationer mot uppsatta mål. Det traditionella tillvägagångssättet att mäta medarbetarnas välmående har varit via en årlig medarbetarundersökning. Men det vi nu ser är en mer digital trend: att i realtid göra så kallade pulsmätningar vilket innebär kontinuerliga mindre undersökningar av personalens välmående och organisationens arbetsmiljö. Organisationer använder ett digitalt mätverktyg för att genomföra dessa. På så sätt kan organisationer agera mer agilt på både negativa och positiva resultat. Forskning visar att medarbetare som trivs och mår bra på arbetsplatsen också presterar bättre mot uppsatta mål. Att inkludera medarbetare mer frekvent kan få en positiv effekt på engagemanget och motivationen. Vi har därför genomfört en kvalitativ studie i form av semistrukturerade intervjuer. Respondenter har varit personer som arbetar inom organisationer som använder ett digitalt mätverktyg av personalens välmående i realtid. De har dessutom haft en betydande roll för arbetet av implementeringen av ett sådant verktyg, men också arbetat med resultatet från det. Vår insamlade empiri har analyserats i relation till Finansialiseringsteori samt Isomorfism som är ett fenomen inom Nyinstitutionell teori. Vårt syfte med studien var att ta reda på om pulsmätningar är ett uttryck för ökad finansialiseringen och varför organisationer implementerar ett digitalt mätverktyg av personalens välmående, hur det kan tänkas se ut samt hur resultatet sedan används. Resultatet indikerade på att organisationer använder ett digitalt mätverktyg av personalens välmående på grund av employer branding, att de genuint vill att personalen ska må bra, men inte utan att det ska leda till ekonomiska fördelar som exempelvis färre sjukskrivningar och ökade intäkter. Genom studien har vi också kunnat presentera resultat för hur ett digitalt mätverktyg kan se ut och då främst vad organisationer mäter. Här visar det övergripande resultatet att det är främst ledarskap och arbetsmiljö som står i fokus. Men också att medarbetarengagemanget har gått upp som en effekt av ett digitalt mätverktyg som mäter välmående på arbetsplatsen. Med den här studien hoppas vi kunna bidra med en bredare förståelse för varför organisationer använder pulsmätningar och hur det används som en länk mellan arbetsgivare och arbetstagare.

    “Just Throw It Behind You and Just Keep Going”: Emotional Labor when Ethnic Minority Healthcare Staff Encounter Racism in Healthcare2022In: Frontiers in Sociology, E-ISSN 2297-7775, Vol. 6, article id 741202Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Encountering racism is burdensome and meeting it in a healthcare setting is no exception. This paper is part of alarger study that focusedonunderstandingandaddressingracismin healthcare in Sweden. In the paper, we draw on interviews with 12 ethnic minority healthcare staff who described how they managed emotional labor in their encounters with racism at their workplace. Data were analyzed using thematic analysis. The analysis revealed that experienced emotional labor arises from two main reasons. The first is the concern and fear that ethnic minority healthcare staff have of adverse consequences for their employment should they be seen engaged in discussing racism. The second concerns the ethical dilemmas when taking care of racist patients since healthcare staff are bound by a duty of providing equal care for all patients as expressed in healthcare institutional regulations. Strategies to manage emotional labor described by the staff include working harder to prove their competence and faking, blocking or hiding their emotions when they encounter racism. The emotional labor implied by these strategies could be intense or traumatizing as indicated by some staff members, and can therefore have negative effects on health. Given that discussions around racism are silenced, it is paramount to create space where racism can be safely discussed and to develop a safe healthcare environment for the benefit of staff and patients.

    Invisibility of Racism in the Global Neoliberal Era: Implications for Researching Racism in Healthcare2019In: Frontiers in Sociology, E-ISSN 2297-7775, Vol. 4, article id 61Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper describes the difficulties of researching racism in healthcare contexts as part of the wider issue of neoliberal reforms in welfare states in the age of global migration. In trying to understand the contradiction of a phenomenon that is historical and strongly felt by individuals and yet widely denied by both institutions and individuals, we consider the current political and socioeconomic context of healthcare provision. Despite decades of legislation against racism, its presence persists in healthcare settings, but data on these experiences is rarely gathered in Europe. National systems of healthcare provision have been subject to neoliberal reforms, where among others, cheaper forms of labor are sought to reduce the cost of producing healthcare, while the availability of services is rationed to contain demand. The restriction both on provision of and access to welfare, including healthcare, is unpopular among national populations. However, the explanations for restricted access to healthcare are assumed to be located outside the national context with immigrants being blamed. Even as migrants are used as a source of cheap labor in healthcare and other welfare sectors, the arrival of immigrants has been held responsible for restricted access to healthcare and welfare in general. One implication of (im)migration being blamed for healthcare restrictions, while racism is held to be a problem of the past, is the silencing of experiences of racism, which has dire consequences for ethnic minority populations. The implications of racism as a form of inequality within healthcare and the circumstances of researching racism in healthcare and its implication for the sociology of health in Sweden are described.

    Alla barn är inte lika mycket värda: En rättssociologisk studie av barnets bästa i domar och reportageböcker.2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka på vilket sätt migrationsrättens uppdrag att reglera invandring genom dombeslut förhåller sig till barnets bästa/barns mänskliga rättigheter. Därtill har barnets psykologiska påverkan av migrationsprocessen även undersökts. Detta genom en dokumentanalys i form av en kvalitativ innehållsanalys av domar och två reportageböcker. En rättssociologisk utgångspunkt har använts i studien och har innefattat både en innehållsanalys av materialet samt tolkning av lagtext. De teoretiska utgångspunkterna i arbetet har varit Cullbergs kristeori och medborgarskapsteorier. I resultatet presenteras de koder och teman som identifierats i innehållsanalysen av materialet. Koderna tid och kultur tematiseras som anpassning, rädsla tematiseras som skyddsskäl och vårdbehov tematiseras som exkludering. I analysen kopplas sedan resultatet samman från både domarna samt reportagen och det analyseras vidare. Det förs även en diskussion om metoden och teorierna i koppling till resultatet. Avslutningsvis poängteras studiens värde och implikationer för vidare forskning samt praktik. Studien visar på att barnets bästa i många fall blir sekundärt och att barn far illa i migrationsprocessen. Dessutom visar resultatet på vilka konsekvenser detta kan ha för barnet. Diskrepansen i Migrationsdomstolens uppdrag, barnets sårbarhet samt de negativa konsekvenserna av migrationsprocessen har synliggjorts i denna studie.

    The Decollegialization of Higher Education Institutions – an Examination of Public Sector Higher Education Institutions in Sweden

    This article surveys current management ideals of higher education institutions (HEIs), and our analytical focus is on the balance between line management and fac-ulty self-governance. We present an empirical study of evolving governance struc-tures including all 31 public sector HEIs in Sweden. The point of departure is the Autonomy Reform of 2011, which resulted in a deregulation of the Higher Education Act and a loss of constitutional support for collegial bodies. To assess the conse-quences of the reform, we have examined collegial bodies and academic leadership posts before and after the reform. Our findings show escalating line management in the appointment of academic leaders, a diluted role for collegial expertise, and a loss of decision-making authority for collegial bodies. Hence, the decollegialization of HEIs in Sweden. Our study contributes to the existing literature with an unusually comprehensive analysis of the consequences of new managerial ideals at the local institutional level.
