    From Taliban Rule to Taliban Rule: An Analysis of Nation-building Efforts in Afghanistan, the Role of Religion and its Outcome for Women and Minorities.2022Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    As September 2021 marks 20 years of the US-led War against Terror and the invasion of Afghanistan, the Taliban currently is taking a seat in Kabul, only days after American troops left the country. The understanding of the failure of the Afghan Peace Talks between 2018-2021 has been looked at from different aspects, but it is important to note there is no independent line of religion between the Taliban and the Afghans, but rather a strong interplay between conflicting moral positions where the Taliban pray on the weak to religiously validate their position and the Afghan government firmly positions itself opposite of the Taliban but does not always do much better when it comes to the inclusion of women and minorities.The hopes of change for a peaceful future in the Afghan society with the arrival of US military troops in 2001 have stayed unfulfilled: the US ignored e.g., the structure of tribal networks of the country, their historical development, and struggled to take responsibility for nation-building efforts, and above all, demonstrated the inability to accept Islam as anything but a terrorism belief which led to a dramatic comeback of the revitalized Taliban. This thesis aims to understand how religion has been a factor in nation-building efforts in Afghanistan as well as the direct outcomes of inclusion of women and minorities, who are currently daily in the international news and high on the agenda of the international diplomatic community.

    Organisational Learning through Impact Evaluations: The Evolution of Guidelines for Child Friendly Spaces. The Case of UNICEF and World Vision2021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The limited evidence base on the effectiveness and impact of Child Friendly Spaces (CFSs) – one of the most widely used interventions to address needs of children – prompted several humanitarian organisations together with the Columbia University to conduct an inter-agency series of impact evaluations between 2012 and 2014. Thus, using the case of UNICEF and World Vison, this study aims to explore if and how the findings of the series of impact evaluations contributed to the learning of the respective organisations. To address this question, a thematic analysis was conducted in two steps: first, for the CFS impact evaluation reports to identify a set of themes about the impact of CFSs; and second, for the pre- and post-evaluation guiding documents of UNICEF and World Vision with adjusted themes from the first step to understand how the findings from the evaluation reports were reflected in the new guiding documents. The comparison of UNICEF’s and World Vision’s use of impact evaluations showed that both of them engaged in organisational learning by creating/acquiring knowledge through impact evaluations that was then retained through evaluation reports and the incorporation of the evaluation findings into the new guidelines and finally transferred through the dissemination of said documents. However, the utilisation of findings by the two organisations appeared to result in two different types of learning: World Vision, while capturing lessons and improving their guidelines using evaluation findings still carried on with their current framework of CFS interventions, which points to single-loop learning. UNICEF, on the other hand, moved toward a more integrated community-based mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) interventions with CFSs only being one part of them, demonstrating the organisation’s questioning of underlying assumptions, system-wide thinking and more strategic approach pointing to double-loop learning. This research thus takes the discrepancy between the prevalent belief that evidence is crucial for humanitarian programming and the limited use of such evidence as a starting point by shedding light on how this evidence can and does contribute to organisational learning.

    The Covid-19 Opportunity: Creating More Ethical and Sustainable Research Practices2020Annet (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Contributing to the “Covid-19 and the Social Sciences” essay series, Oscar Abedi, Maria Eriksson Baaz, David Mwambari, Swati Parashar, Anju Oseema Maria Toppo, and James Vincent outline various paths toward reducing field research’s potential for exploitation, especially that of Global South collaborators. The pandemic has highlighted inequalities and immobility that differently affect facilitating researchers and contracting researchers. In response, the authors identify key issues that institutions, publishers, and individual researchers must reflect on in order to counteract these imbalances—and take advantage of an opportunity to fundamentally transform field research into collaborative knowledge production.

    Mänskliga rättigheter vid domstolsbeslut gällande omhändertagande av barn: LVU-domar före och efter att barnkonventionen blev svensk lagstiftning2023Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

     Administrative courts’ view on children’s human rights are actualized when the courts rule that children should be taken into the care of society. It is a legal decision and, moreover, it is an intricate moral issue where fundamental values such as protection, autonomy and equality are at stake. Domestic violence and child abuse are grounds for custody in more than half of the judgments when Swedish Care of Young Persons (Special Provisions) Act (SFS 1990:52) (commonly referred to as LVU) are applied in the courts (Lundström et al. 2020, s. 290). Child abuse is a criminal act and a violation of human rights. Since January 1, 2020, the Convention on the Rights of the Child has been incorporated into Swedish legislation, which means that it must be applied in the administrative courts’ decisions on custody judgment, alongside the Act (SFS 1990:52). Children’s human rights must therefore be considered when such cases are decided.

     

    This thesis aims to examine and compare the administrative courts’ view on children's rights, for children subjected to child abuse, before and after the Convention on the Rights of the Child was incorporated into Swedish legislation, when the courts apply Act (SFS 1990:52) to decide whether to separate a child from their families. The study is done through a discourse analysis of 20 judgments; 10 judgments before (between 2012-2014) and 10 judgments after (between 2020-2022) the Convention on the Rights of the Child became Swedish law. The theoretical framework is based on children’s rights, and mainly three of the governing principles of the Convention on the Rights of the Child: the best interests of the child (art. 14), the right to participation (art. 12), and the right to development (art. 6). Ideologies, values, and moral stances are made visible in the analysis of the application of these principles.

     

    In the judgments, generally, a view of children's rights emerges as essentially related to protecting basic needs. The so-called interest perspective on rights, where rights correlate with protecting needs, rather than protecting the expressed will of the person (Maccormick, 1976, s. 306), is the overriding tendency in the study of the judgments. Implicitly, the understanding of the child perspective emerges where the children's best interest and the children's right to development become dominant over the right to participation. The administrative courts understand the children’s best interest and the right to development as mutually dependent and as protectionist principles, where security, care, and emotional support become central expressions in the judgments in general. Family law theorist John Eekelaar (1994, s. 47-48) establishes that the assessment of a child's best interests requires that an objective and a subjective element are brought together, i.e., general knowledge about the child and, also, the child's own experiences and opinion. The objective perspective is prominent in the administrative courts’ assessment of the children's best interests, and the children's needs and narratives are formulated from an adult perspective.

     

    A distinctive change in the judgments after the Convention on the Rights of the Child became Swedish law is that the children's feelings and thoughts are given more space in the administrative courts’ reasoning. The children are referenced to as subjects, and it is thus possible to see increased tendencies towards a children's rights discourse. Also, detailed and advanced reasoning about the children's needs, vulnerability and development appears to a greater extent. Descriptions of how different areas of the children's lives are affected appear frequently in the judgments after the Convention on the Rights of the Child became Swedish law. When using Martha Nussbaum's capability approach (Nussbaum, 2013, s. 30), it is possible to discern in the judgments a view of children's rights where the protection of basic needs, such as physical and mental health, is fundamental to being able to develop autonomy and self-determination. Although the children's experiences, stories and needs are at the center of the judgment, it is formulated from an adult perspective. The children's opinions and expressed wills do not have a prominent role in most judgments. The view that eventually becomes dominant is a protectionist attitude to the rights of children. The protectionist attitude towards children's rights risks increasingly becoming paternalistic in its application when the children's opinions and wills are excluded in the judgments. The understanding of participation that appears is basically connected to participation as a procedural right that aims to protect the needs of the child. Participation as a substantial right has no impact in any of the 20 judgments. Based on an understanding of participation as an expression of human autonomy and dignity, the child does not appear as a subject of his own rights and thus indicates an incomplete children's rights discourse in the judgments both before and after the Convention on the Rights of the Child became Swedish law.

    Bibliometric analysis of two subdomains in philosophy: free will and sorites2015Inngår i: Scientometrics, ISSN 0138-9130, E-ISSN 1588-2861, Vol. 103, nr 1, s. 47-73Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this study we tested the fruitfulness of advanced bibliometric methods for mapping subdomains in philosophy. The development of the number of publications on free will and sorites, the two subdomains treated in the study, over time was studied. We applied the cocitation approach to map the most cited publications, authors and journals, and we mapped frequently occurring terms, using a term co-occurrence approach. Both subdomains show a strong increase of publications in Web of Science. When we decomposed the publications by faculty, we could see an increase of free will publications also in social sciences, medicine and natural sciences. The multidisciplinary character of free will research was reflected in the cocitation analysis and in the term co-occurrence analysis: we found clusters/groups of cocited publications, authors and journals, and of co-occurring terms, representing philosophy as well as non-philosophical fields, such as neuroscience and physics. The corresponding analyses of sorites publications displayed a structure consisting of research themes rather than fields. All in all, both philosophers involved in this study acknowledge the validity of the various networks presented. Bibliometric mapping appears to provide an interesting tool for describing the cognitive orientation of a research field, not only in the natural and life sciences but also in philosophy, which this study shows.

    Order in disorder?: The role of information communication technology on disorganised violence within civil resistance movements2022Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Nonviolent movements have been noted as one of the most successful forms of civil resistance. Thus, it is important for dissidents to maintain their nonviolent discipline to ensure their success. However, as communication technologies become cheaper and more accessible it is important to study how it can affect civil resistance movements. Existing research highlights that communication technologies such as the internet can provide faster information exchange in an unprecedented way for dissidents. More recent studies have considered the detrimental effects of incidental violence that are common within nonviolent movements. It shows that in the long run, this type of incidental, disorganised, unarmed violence can have dampening effects on future mobilisation. Yet, no previous research has sought to explain the direct role of digitisation on nonviolent campaign dynamics. Hence, this paper seeks to understand how increased internet access can impact dissidents’ decisions to maintain their nonviolent discipline. I argue that greater internet access should reduce disorganised violence intensity within nonviolent campaign events. To investigate this relationship, I employ a quantitative research design at a city-protest week level to look at 917 nonviolent campaign events between 2005-2012. Overall, I find some limited support for the proposed hypotheses that indicates greater internet access can reduce disorganised violence

    ENERGY LITERACY AND BEHAVIOR AMONG UNIVERSITY STUDENTS. THE CASE OF UPPSALA UNIVERSITY, CAMPUS GOTLAND.2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Energy is one of the most critical elements that support societies in the modern world. As with anything else, energy is a limited resource, and saving it is essential for a fossil-free future where one is aware of their energy consumption and knows what is needed to save it. Recently, Europe has been faced with severe energy shortages where Sweden for example was under the threat of blackouts in 2022/2023. As a way to mitigate the problem, The EU introduced a law that obliges individuals and institutions to reduce their energy consumption during peak hours. In Sweden, this was translated into “Varje kWh räknas” or every kilowatt-hour counts campaign in order to promote energy saving in society. Uppsala university is one of the institutions that had to reduce the energy consumption where students play a role in this energy saving. On the other hand, energy literacy is defined as the way people understand energy, how it is being used, and the attitudes regarding saving it. Previous research (such as Cotton et al., 2015; DeWaters and Powers, 2011; Blasch et al., 2017) about energy literacy tended to focus on various societal groups when investigating the three different domains of energy literacy: cognitive, attitude, and behavior. The cognitive domain is defined as the knowledge related to energy basic rules and concepts, while the affective domain is defined as the attitudes toward energy such as beliefs, values, feelings, etc. Behavioral literacy is the intentions, involvement, and decisions one makes in relation to energy and energy saving. This study aims to explore themes and opinions in energy behaviour, perception, and literacy among students in order to understand the current ways energy literacy is being promoted and taught at Uppsala University and the wayes to imporove it. This was done by providing answer to the resurch question: What cognitive, behavioural, and affective knowledge do students have about the nature and role of energy in their daily lives?In this study, students at Uppsala University, Campus Gotland were interviewed and asked questions about energy and their energy-related attitude and behavior. The data was collected via interviews and then analyzed thematically. The discovered themes varied from students covering the cognitive domain elements to the difference in themes in relation to affective and behavioral domains. Students in general talked about energy in relation to factors that would affect energy behavior and would in turn contribute to saving energy like education. Students also covered various forms of feelings related to energy like anger, fear, and hopefulness. Additionally, various factors showed different patterns when talking about energy-related behavior, energy-saving ivattitudes, and the general perception of the relation between knowing about energy and the attitude and behavior domain. When covering the role of Uppsala University, all students have illustrated the importance of introducing energy-related education to the official curriculum, as well as other methods related to Uppsala University to increase energy knowledge amongst students.

    Citizen Science as Democratic Innovation That Renews Environmental Monitoring and Assessment for the Sustainable Development Goals in Rural Areas2021Inngår i: Sustainability, E-ISSN 2071-1050, Vol. 13, nr 5, artikkel-id 2762Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This commentary focuses on analyzing the potential of citizen science to address legitimacy issues in the knowledge base used to guide transformative governance in the context of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (henceforth SDGs). The commentary develops two interrelated arguments for better understanding the limits of what we term “traditional” Environmental Monitoring and Assessment (EMA) as well as the potential of citizen science (CS) for strengthening the legitimacy of EMA in the local implementation of SDGs. We start by arguing that there is an urgent need for a profound renewal of traditional EMA to better implement the SDGs. Then, we present CS as a democratic innovation that provides a path to EMA renewal that incorporates, develops, and extends the role of CS in data production and use by EMA. The commentary substantiates such arguments based on current approaches to CS and traditional EMA. From this starting point, we theorize the potential of CS as a democratic innovation that can repurpose EMA as a tool for the implementation of the SDGs. With a focus on the implementation of SDG15 (Life on Land) in local contexts, the commentary presents CS as a democratic innovation for legitimate transformative governance that can affect socio-ecological transitions. We see this approach as especially appropriate to analyze the implementation of SDGs in rural settings where a specific resource nexus can create conflict-laden contexts with much potential for a renewed EMA to support transformative governance towards Agenda 2030.

    Abstract [en]

    This special issue of International Negotiation explores from different perspectives how multilateral trade negotiations, primarily within the World Trade Organization (WTO), can become more effective. The challenges associated with this task have grown, as the parties and issues involved in such talks have increased in number and diversity. The specific topics addressed include the role of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and domestic-level factors, agenda management, legitimacy and procedural issues, turning points, the challenge posed by the pursuit of bilateral and regional alternatives, and the question of gains to be had from multilateralism. The conclusions drawn from these studies are wide-ranging and relevant for multilateral negotiations generally. They highlight, among other matters, the significance of decision-making procedures used in the negotiation process.

    Abstract [en]

    Opposing notions of justice held by parties frequently contribute to the complexity of conflict and its resolution. Yet the implications of this reality remain poorly explored in scholarship and often little recognized in policy approaches. This chapter delineates different causes behind and roots of opposing justice notions in conflicts situations. A range of means available to tackle them are then developed. So called integrative strategies of negotiation and conflict resolution are put forward as most promising if certain preparatory steps, involving a third party and trust building among other matters, are taken.

    Using negotiation to promote legitimacy: an assessment of proposals for reforming the WTO2008Inngår i: International Affairs, ISSN 0020-5850, E-ISSN 1468-2346, Vol. 84, nr 4, s. 757-+Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    How can negotiations be conducted to promote the legitimacy of international institutions such as the World Trade Organization (WTO)? Can negotiation procedures be designed so as to strengthen the WTO as an institution and the agreements it concludes? One reason for which the legitimacy of the organization is being questioned is its decision-making-especially negotiation-procedures. These have contributed significantly to recent setbacks in WTO talks. Yet proposals for procedural reform have not been subject to much discussion or review, in particular with no regard to content which may boost legitimacy. Justice and other values associated with legitimacy have generally not been addressed by trade experts, and conceptual tools for identifying what practical form their inclusion could take are lacking. This article reviews a variety of proposals, formal and informal, for reforming the WTO's negotiation procedures. It develops an approach to procedural justice which is used to identify the justice content in these proposals, based on four main principles. Drawing on this analysis, the article concludes by highlighting promising elements of reform. In so doing, it brings research literature on justice and negotiation to bear on current debates over the legitimacy deficit in international institutions, using the WTO as a significant case. More practically, the article helps to identify what more legitimate negotiation procedures may mean and require, and how their justice content may be assessed and increased.

    Distributive justice and the durability of peace agreements2011Inngår i: Review of International Studies, ISSN 0260-2105, E-ISSN 1469-9044, Vol. 37, nr 3, s. 1137-1168Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores the relationship between principles of distributive justice (DJ) and the durability of negotiated agreements. Sixteen peace agreements negotiated during the early 1990s were coded for the centrality of each of four principles of DJ – equality, proportionality, compensation, and need – to the core terms of the agreement. The agreements were also assessed on scales of implementation and durability over a five-year period. Another variable included in the analysis was the difficulty of the conflict environment. These data were used to evaluate three sets of hypotheses: the relationship between DJ and durability, the role of the conflict environment, and types of DJ principles. The results obtained from both statistical and focused-comparison analyses indicate that DJ moderates the relationship between conflict environments and outcomes: when principles of justice are central to an agreement, the negative effects of difficult conflict environments are reduced; when principles are not central, the negative effects of difficulty are heightened. These relationships are accounted for primarily by one of the four DJ principles – equality. Implications of these findings are discussed along with a number of ideas for further research.

    Equality matters: Negotiating an end to civil wars2012Inngår i: Journal of Conflict Resolution, ISSN 0022-0027, E-ISSN 1552-8766, Vol. 56, nr 2, s. 155-182Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores relationships between procedural justice (PJ) in the negotiation process, distributive justice (DJ) in the terms of negotiated agreements, and their durability in cases of civil war. Adherence to PJ principles was found to correlate strongly with agreements based specifically on the DJ principle of equality. Agreements were also found to be more durable when based on equality, but not when based on other DJ principles. The equality principle accounted for the relationship between PJ and durability irrespective of differences between the parties in power. Further examination suggested that two types of equality in particular-equal treatment and equal shares-were associated with forward-looking agreements and high durability. The findings suggest that durability is served by including equality in the terms of agreements, and that PJ helps (but does not guarantee) achieving such agreements.

    The Role of Justice in Negotiation2010Inngår i: Handbook of Group Decision and Negotiation / [ed] D. Marc Kilgour and Colin Eden, Springer Publishers , 2010, s. 109-119Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter discusses the role of justice in negotiation between rival parties and the durability of peace agreements. It draws on research about group negotiation processes and agreements to end civil wars, mostly during the early 1990s. Hypothesized relationships between the presence and importance of distributive justice (DJ) in the agreements, and their durability, were first explored with multiple methods (see also the chapter by Koeszegi and Vetschera, this volume). The difficulty of the conflict environment was shown to have the strongest impact on durability. However, the DJ principle of equality was found to reduce the negative impact of difficult environments. An emphasis on equality was also associated with more forward-looking agreements, which were found to be more durable than those that were backward looking. (See also the chapters by Nurmi, Klamber, Kilgour and Hipel, Turel, and Yuan, this volume for modeling approaches to issues of justice and fairness.) Next, the presence and importance of procedural justice (PJ) were examined in the negotiation processes that led to the signing of the peace agreements. Significantly more durable agreements occurred when a process based on PJ led to agreements that emphasized equality. This focus on process is similar to the analyses conducted by the authors chapters (See also the chapter by Koeszegi and Vetschera, Kersten and Lai, this volume). A close examination of how the equality principle was applied revealed that agreements based on provisions of equal treatment and/or equal shares were particularly durable. The chapter concludes with a discussion of tactics used by third parties to produce durable agreements, and lessons for policy.

    A palace fit for the future: Desirability in temporal work2022Inngår i: Strategic Organization, ISSN 1476-1270, E-ISSN 1741-315X, Vol. 20, nr 1, s. 20-50Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Research on the strategic organization of time often assumes that collective efforts are motivated by andoriented toward achieving desirable, although not necessarily well-defined, future states. In situationssurrounded by uncertainty where work has to proceed urgently to avoid an impending disaster, however,temporal work is guided by engaging with both desirable and undesirable future outcomes. Drawing ona real-time, in-depth study of the inception of the Restoration and Renewal program of the Palace ofWestminster, we investigate how organizational actors develop a strategy for an uncertain and highlycontested future while safeguarding ongoing operations in the present and preserving the heritage of thepast. Anticipation of undesirable future events played a crucial role in mobilizing collective efforts to moveforward. We develop a model of future desirability in temporal work to identify how actors construct, link,and navigate interpretations of desirable and undesirable futures in their attempts to create a viable path ofaction. By conceptualizing temporal work based on the phenomenological quality of the future, we advanceunderstanding of the strategic organization of time in pluralistic contexts characterized by uncertainty and urgency.

    The Role of Religion in Development Cooperation with Focus on Resilience Building2022Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The lack of consensus and consistency in defining and integrating the role of religion in development cooperation as well as in resilience building agendas undermines the Global Development Agenda and the effectiveness of interventions being implemented in the Global South. This research examines international development and aid organizations’ resilience frameworks and concepts, such as the ACT Church of Sweden, Oxfam, Lutheran World Relief, Islamic Relief Worldwide, and Baha’i International Community. The data collection and analysis are guided by the Social Capital Theory and by Resilience Building Approach. Analyzing how international organizations theorize the role of religion in resilience building provides this research with concrete examples to how faith-based actors are pinnacle actors of their communities during shocks, stressors, and everyday adversities. Spirituality in specific is a powerful capital that drives inner and outer movements and contribute to building hopeful and compassionate societies. However, this role of religion, faith, and spirituality and their conceptualization and use by faith actors remains to be complex and problematic to donor, intergovernmental and governmental agencies.

    Abstract [en]

    Can transparency interventions improve WASH service provision? We use a randomized experiment to evaluate the impacts of a transparency intervention, a deliberative multi-stakeholder workshop initiated with a community scorecard exercise, in schools in rural Bangladesh. To measure impacts, we combine survey data, direct observations, and administrative data. The intervention leads to moderate but consistent improvements in knowledge of WASH standards and practices, and institutions for WASH service management, but does not improve school WASH service provision or change WASH facility use patterns. Drawing on rich descriptive data, we suggest several reasons why the intervention we evaluate did not improve WASH service outcomes and propose ways to improve the design of future interventions.

    The National Past and Future of European Public Opinion2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    What has happened with the perception that Europeans have of their relationship with the European Union through the years? Is it possible to find some analogies between present times and international relations in the XIX century Europe?

    This work tries to study the period comprehended between the Congress of Vienna in 1815 and the period that ended up in World War I in order to search for behavioural and ideological patterns similar to those of the development of the European Union as we have known it.

    The thesis stands for the idea of that finding similarities and interconnections between the past of European nations may be a help to predict the proper way to integrate the different citizenries of current European countries under a common identity of shared values.

    The Pillars of Sustainable Cultural Tourism and Entrepreneurship: The case of Gotland as a Cultural Destination2021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish Island of Gotland is well-known for being prosperous in cultural  and natural values, as well as for its attractiveness as a touristic destination that draws local and international visitors to its myriad of cultural activities, offerings and establishments. For those reasons, Region Gotland has created comprehensive plans aimed at achieving goals related to exalting the image of the island as place for sustainable tourism and the promotion of culture. However, it is important to identify possible problematics that may arise during the implementation of such plans, and additionally it is important to compare and analyze the directives of the Region against what cultural actors and artists perceive in their day-to-day activities. Therefore, based on the existing literature, the collected data, and the identified themes in this research, a model that seeks to incorporate concepts related to the Promotion of Culture, Culturally Sustainable Enterprises and Cultural Tourism will be presented as a solution to tackle the problems and issues that cultural destinations such as Gotland might face.

    News Media Ownership and Social Change: Shifting Representations of Oligarchs in the Ukrainian and Russian Press2018Inngår i: Artikkel i tidsskrift (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the impact of media ownership on representations of elites during a period of political change. We conduct a qualitative media analysis of 175 articles in leading Russian and Ukrainian news outlets around the 2013-14 Maidan protests that lead to a revolution and military conflict in Ukraine. We find that portrayals of wealthy elites change over time, but vary by media ownership in discrete but parallel ways across oligarch-owned, state-controlled, and independent news. The paper details news patterns alongside protest dynamics, and discusses how ownership remains a driving factor shaping media content during episodes of rapid political change.

    An Update of Public Perceptions of Synthetic Biology: Still Undecided?2016Inngår i: NanoEthics, ISSN 1871-4757, E-ISSN 1871-4765, Vol. 10, nr 3, s. 309-325Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The discourse on the fundamental issues raised by synthetic biology, such as biosafety and biosecurity, intellectual property, environmental consequences and ethical and societal implications, is still open and controversial. This, coupled with the potential and risks the field holds, makes it one of the hottest topics in technology assessment today. How a new (bio)technology is perceived by the public influences the manner in which its products and applications will be received. Therefore, it is important to learn how people perceive synthetic biology. This work gathers, integrates and discusses the results of three studies of public perceptions of synthetic biology: (1) an analysis of existing research on how media portray synthetic biology across 13 European countries and in the USA, (2) the Meeting of Young Minds, a public debate between prospective politicians and synthetic biologists in the Netherlands and (3) the experiences of citizen panels and focus groups in Austria, the UK and the USA. The results show that the media are generally positive in their reports on synthetic biology, rather unbalanced in their view of potential benefits (emphasized) and risks (downplayed), and also heavily influenced by the sources of the stories, namely scientists and stakeholders. Among the prospective Dutch politicians, there were positive expectations as well as very negative ones. Some of these positions are also shared by participants in public dialogue experiments, such as not only the demand for information, transparency and regulation but also a sense of resignation and ineluctability of scientific and technological progress.

    Abstract [en]

    Various methods of carbon dioxide removal (CDR) are being pursued in response to the climate crisis, but they are mostly not proven at scale. Climate experts are divided over whether CDR is a necessary requirement or a dangerous distraction from limiting emissions. In this Viewpoint, six experts offer their views on the CDR debate.

    Att bättre förstå ätstörningar och förmedla en sund kostmedvetenhet inom idrotten: Paradoxen och den svåra balansgången2011Inngår i: Dietistaktuellt, ISSN 1102-9285, Vol. 20, nr 6, s. 14-16Artikkel i tidsskrift (Annet (populærvitenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [sv]

    Majoriteten av idrottare drabbas aldrig av ätstörningar trots hård träning, prestationsinriktning och en mer eller mindre noggrann kosthållning och viktreglering . Det finns dock idrottare som under lång tid kämpar med en ätstörningsproblemtik där ett komplicerat förhållande till mat och träning uppstått. Vissa studier talar vidare för att idrotten skulle kunna skydda individen för ätstörningar medan flera studier visar en högre förekomst av ätstör-ningar och stört ätbeteende inom än utanför idrottsvärlden, i synnerhet inom estetiska och viktrelaterade idrotter . Maten och träningen är båda komplexa fenomen och en djupare insikt och öppenhet kring hur man hanterar denna form av ”idrottsskada” är värdefullt såväl inom idrottsvärlden som inom hälso- och sjukvården. Dietisten med fördjupad kunskap inom idrott och ätstörningar förefaller vara en värdefull person i detta arbete.

    Socio-techno-ecological transition dynamics in the re-territorialization of food production: the case of wild berries in Sweden2024Inngår i: Sustainability Science, ISSN 1862-4065, E-ISSN 1862-4057Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Recent geopolitical and economic crises underline the need for a European transition towards a more sustainable food system. Scholars and policymakers have called for a re-territorialization of food production to strike a better balance between local, regional and global value chains. This paper explores the role of re-territorialization through an analysis of the emergence, development and current transformation of the Swedish wild berry value chain. The analysis combines the multi-level perspective on sustainability transitions with a socio-techno-ecological system approach and draws on interviews, informal conversations, participant observations and a range of secondary sources. The resulting case narrative shows how processes of de-territorialization may result in regimes that fail to address sustainability potential and problems. It also highlights that processes of re-territorialization challenge established regimes by promoting niches that represent different, albeit complementary, value chain configurations. Apart from a rich empirical narrative that brings useful knowledge to stakeholders to the Swedish wild berry value chain, the paper contributes to the theoretical understanding re-territorialization, shows how the ecological dimension can be accounted for with the multi-level perspective on sustainability transitions and presents a number of general policy implications.

    Utmaningar vid CRM-implementering: En tvärvetenskaplig fallstudie om implementering av CRM-system hos en tidningskoncern2023Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This study is about Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and implementation of CRM systems. The study aims to identify and investigate which challenges are experienced during CRM implementation at a newspaper group and how those challenges have been handled. Through a case study at the newspaper group, the investigation has had an inductive and exploratory approach where the focus has been to achieve a deeper understanding of the implementation as well as the challenges experienced and managed. The data collection was carried out in the form of semi-structured interviews with managers, support staff and salespeople at the group. Through a thematization of the empirical findings, five different themes have been identified. These consist of resistance to change, the changed sales role, training and support, system limitations and the user perspective. These themes have then been analyzed and the challenges that have been experienced and how these have been handled emerge. The study found that various types of challenges emerged based on the identified themes, which further impacted different roles within the group. The results of the study indicate that some challenges were successfully addressed, while others were not.

    Fight the Power: Effect of Post-Election Anti-Government Action upon the Probability of Incumbent Replacement2023Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is to answer the research question as to whether post-election antigovernment actions lead to increased probability of incumbent being replaced. The theoretical argument is that the anti-government groups can choose to use violence or non-violence to force the government to give concessions, the ultimate one being replacement of the incumbent. Both violence and non-violence are argued to have a positive effect on the probability of this to happen, but the latter should be stronger. Two hypotheses capture this:

    H1: Anti-government violence increases the incumbent’s probability of being replaced.

    H2: Anti-government non-violence increase the incumbent’s probability of being replaced more than anti-government violence does.

    Using a logistic regression on 550 elections compiled from the NELDA and ECAV datasets, the first hypothesis is not supported due to lack of statistical significance across the models. The second hypothesis is supported as the non-violent independent variable receives statistically significant results, but these do not hold in the robustness test. Taking into account the suggestions from previous literature, the results do hint towards non-violence being the more successful option of action, but it cannot be concluded with certainty.
