    Constitutional Reform and the Reorganization of the National Audit Office

    The Committee on Constitutional Reform was appointed by the government to conduct a review of the Swedish Constitution. This article focuses on the Constitution’s chapter on Parliamentary Control, i.e. instruments for monitoring government activities. The Committee’s discussion of this topic was limited and produced no real suggestions for reform. However, the parliament initiated a parallel reform aimed at the reorganization of the Swedish National Audit Office. The issue was investigated and decided upon, and the consequences of the reform were subsequently evaluated. The article points out that this way of organizing constitutional change is a typical of Swedish constitutional policy. Moreover, the changes have had greater constitutional implications for Parliamentary Control than has the work of the Committee on Constitutional Reform.

    Professions under Siege2016In: Statsvetenskaplig Tidskrift, ISSN 0039-0747, Vol. 118, no 1, 93-126 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this article is to analyse the effects of New Public Management (NPM) reforms on three specific professional groups. From this investigation it is clear that the assumptions inherent in the NPM reforms have resulted in a clear breach of what we theoretically refer to as the professional contract between the state and the professions. We show in this analysis that our studied professional groups have lost central aspects of their professional autonomy. We problematize the perception that an ever-increasing demand for steering and control of professionals within the public sector should be perceived as something exclusively good. In addition to the costs of monitoring, the centrally important paradox of accountability should be taken into consideration, i.e. responsible interpretation and application of external accountability demands rest on the cultivation of the virtues that support good administrative judgement, the type of judgement that is threatened by the control-schemes presented in this article.

    The Politics of Public Administration Policy: Explaining and Evaluating Public Performance Management in Sweden2012In: Statsvetenskaplig Tidskrift, ISSN 0039-0747, Vol. 114, no 2, 273-281 p.Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the project is to describe and explain the introduction and the consequences of the current management model of the public sector (management by results) from a democratic theory perspective. Firstly, our aim is to disclose the norms and values that the present model is bearer of. A first step will be to unfold what kind of values that are rewarded in the present model, and thereby also calling the attention to what values that are neglected. A point of reference for this is Elster's "three-cornered dilemma" of constitutionalism, democracy, and efficiency. This analysis of conflicting values will be made on different administrative levels, since the implications are different depending on whether we focus on government steering or the conditions of the service deliverers on the local level. Secondly, we aim to answer the question on why the model was introduced in the first place, and if this process poses any democratic challenges. Our perspective is that the introduction of this model has had far reaching effects for the work of the executive branch, and thereby has had greater constitutional implications than is generally acknowledged. Yet, we also know from earlier research that the introduction of the model was not of great political interest, but is rather the product of a limited number of top civil servants. Simply put, how come that this one particular management model is adopted, and is allowed to dominate, although it has been so highly criticized?

    Abstract [en]

    Spelteori har ofta kommit att användas för att analysera typiserade och ytterst generella frågeställningar om statens uppkomst, miljöförstöring, förutsättningarna för krig och fred, etc. Orsaken är kanske att en stiliserad teori uppfattas som mest lämpad för stiliserade frågeställningar. Även spelteorins vanligaste empiriska tillämpningsområde, internationella konflikter, anses ju av många - med rätt eller orätt - kännetecknas av relativt väldefinierade aktörer och entydiga mål. Mera sällan tycks spelteori ha använts för att analysera inrikespolitiska frågor. Sannolikt har de förenklingar som krävs ofta uppfattats som alltför grova för att göra rättvisa åt komplexa processer med ett vimmel av aktörer, flerdimensionella mål och odeciderade handlingsalternativ. Ett undantag är forskningsprogrammet "Politik som rationellt handlande" vid statsvetenskapliga institutionen i Uppsala, där spelteori användes som en av flera metoder för att analysera politiskt beslutsfattande. Som utvecklas i det följande menar jag dock att man i dessa studier inte fullt ut utnyttjat spelteorins möjligheter. Denna uppsats har två syften. Det första är att bidra till utvecklingen av en spelteori för parlamentariska spel. Jag försöker göra det genom att visa på hur beslutsfattare, handlingar, ståndpunkter och argument i den parlamentariska processen kan översättas till spelteorins komponenter, dvs aktörer, handlingsalternativ, utfall och nyttovärden. Det andra syftet är att med hjälp av spelteori jämföra två parlamentariska beslut, nämligen beslutet om medbestämmandelagen 1976 och beslutet om löntagarfonderna 1983. Denna jämförelse kan samtidigt ses som ett test på hur väl jag lyckats uppfylla mitt första syfte. Hypotesen för jämförelsen är att förändringar i de politiska partiernas inställning till facket mellan de båda tidpunkterna lett till skillnader mellan de båda spelen. Denna hypotes prövas i tre steg. Först formulerar jag de båda beslutsprocesserna i sådana spelteoretiska termer att en jämförelse blir möjlig. Därefter genomför jag jämförelsen - och kan konstatera vissa intressanta skillnader. Slutligen diskuterar jag några alternativa orsaker till dessa skillnader. Det visar sig att ingen av dessa ger en bättre förklaring än hypotesen om förändrad inställning till facket.

    Abstract [en]

    The Future of Local Government: Four Realistic Pathways. Two main arguments are presented in this article. First, when alternatives for the future of local government is debated, two questions need to be addressed simultaneously: (a) how many and how big municipalities ought we have?, and (b) how strong and well secured ought the principle of local self government be in the constitution?. Second, by using these questions as guides for the analysis, we argue that there are instrumental reasons to guarantee a strong local self government in the constitution. However, such a reform needs to be complemented by a politically neutral body of regulations that, under given conditions, secures geographically concentrated minorities a right to secede.

    Abstract [en]

    Generalized trust is favorable to a large number of positive effects; from personal well-being to economic growth and democracy. This article analyses the validity of the standard question “Do you believe in general that most people can be trusted or that one cannot be too careful when dealing with others? “ The article builds on unique quantitative and qualitative data collected by the author in seven schools in the municipality of Stockholm. The results show that a relatively large share of the students has a rational understanding of the question: their trust is domain-specific, depends on the situation and on the character of the person they meet, their trust is “street-smart”. Some systematic variation is also observed between different types of schools.

    Abstract [en]

    EU membership as a constitutional issue

    This article deals with the allez and retour provisions (Claes 2005: 84 f) of the Swedish constitution in relation toEU membership. What are the rules governing the transfer of sovereignty to the Union? And what are theprovisions for assessing the constitutionality of the incoming tide of Union law into the domestic legal order?I have three objects in this essay: First, to describe how these two groups of constitutional rules were actuallymodified in the 2010 revision of the 1974 Instrument of Government. I find that neither was changed in anymaterial way. Second, to try to explain the apparent reluctance of the parties involved to clarify the constitutionalimplications of EU membership. I find that this reluctance is rooted in a belief that European integration is notfurthered if the rules contained in the allez and retour provisions are made stricter and more precise. Third, toconfront a question conspicuously omitted by the parties in their revision: namely, by what criterion should theallez and retour provisions be intertwined, if an optimum of bi-level constitutionalism is to be achieved?I argue that, in the end, the underlying issue is whether Swedish citizens want to see the principle of freemovement applied as widely as possible. Do they want this principle to be applied across the board? Or wouldthey prefer instead to restrict its application to the case of capital and goods, thus leaving them free to structurethe labour market and the welfare state as they themselves see fit?

    Debates on Truth and Method, and the Power of Example: Book review of Flyvbjerg (2001) Making Social Science Matter2002In: Statsvetenskaplig Tidskrift, ISSN 0039-0747, Vol. 105, no 1, 79-82 p.Article, book review (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Flyvbjerg makes a brave call for social science to invite itself to public debate, setting its own agenda, making social science matter. The transparency and clarity of Flyvbjerg’s line of argument of course makes it easier to pick apart. For example, Flyvbjerg’s critique of Habermas at times bites its own tail. While Foucault claims that “power is everywhere”, Habermas distinguishes between power and rationality in communication. But in his success in improving the democratic process in Aalborg, does Flyvbjerg not rely on the power of the better argument?

    If we should succumb to the notion that the political impact of social science rests only on its traditional authority, rather than on the power of the better argument - does this not risk becoming a self-fulfilling profecy? While Habermas’ work is often criticized for being too idealistic, it is seldom appreciated how these types of considerations tie into his particular mode of theorizing.

    Abstract [en]

    Den sociala nätverksmodellen för institutionell förändring bygger vidare på March & Olsens nyinstitutionella ramverk, genom att addera en tredje analysnivå. Mellan den övergripande institutionen och den enskilde individen fokuseras det sociala nätverket. En av utgångspunkterna är det som March & Olsen själva skriver - men som sällan uppmärksammats - nämligen att kunskap, koder, paradigmer, tolkningar, värderingar och normer utvecklas och förändras inom institutioner genom att individer diskuterar med och övertalar andra personer som de är vänner med och litar på (s. 118-120). March & Olsens resonemang om vikten av ”interpersonal connections” får mig att länka deras arbete till den omfattande litteraturen om sociala nätverk, och föreslå en modell av socialt-nätverkshandlande, som jag döpt till “the logic of interpersonal trust”. Denna, menar jag, kan hjälpa oss förstå en process där den ”logic of appropriateness” som styr en institution omtolkas och förändras.

    Nationella domstolar som politiska aktörer: - främjare av rättslig integration eller försvarare av nationella intressen?2013In: Statsvetenskaplig Tidskrift, ISSN 0039-0747, Vol. 115, no 1, 5-34 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    It has been widely recognised that national courts play a significant role in the process of European integration. By asking the European Court of Justice for preliminary rulings, national courts have contributed in promoting legal integration. Although previous research has recognised the importance of national courts, we still have only limited empirical knowledge on how they act. This article examines whether national courts act as promoters of legal integration or defenders of the national interest. It does so by providing a systematic investigation of: 1, what type of cases they refer to the ECJ, and 2, what type of opinions they attach with preliminary references. The article utilise data from all 67 cases referred to the ECJ during the period 1995-2009. The results indicate that Swedish courts act strategically to balance the claims of providing the ECJ with preliminary references and the demands for taking national considerations into account.
