    Gender Equality: An intersectional analysis with focus on Roma women in Hungarian NGOs2015In: Baltic Worlds, ISSN 2000-2955, Vol. 8, no 3-4, p. 34-46Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    I will focus on the ways that agents of NGOs engaged with Roma and/or women’s recognition struggles can be classified, and how these constructions make sense of the conditions forming the lives of Roma women and furthermore how Roma women’s interests are positioned. Detacting the intersecting aspects of ethnic-, gender-, and class-based relations that constitute Roma women’s position, I seek to identify which segments of the complex of relations different NGOs articulate as central. I aim to explore whether Roma women’s NGOs can be seen as more reflexive of the intersectional complexity of Roma women’s relations compared to Roma and women’s organizations.

    "Everybody knows who will win": Presidential Election in Azerbaijan2013In: Baltic Worlds, ISSN 2000-2955Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    On October 9 presidential elections were held in Azerbaijan. As a result of the criticized 2009 amendment to the constitution the two-term limit for the presidency was removedand the incumbent, President Ilham Aliyev, could stand as candidate fora third time. Nobody was surprised when he won again. To the contrary it seemed the well-documented ‘political apathy’ of the Azerbaijani people had spread outside the country as well as.All through the election period foreign and national analysts alike were very careful to point out that everybody already knew who would win. This caution is of course a natural reactiontothe electoral authoritarianism that characterizes the Azerbaijani regime. Under electoral authoritarianism the state provides an ”illusion of multi-party democracy at the local and national levels while effectively stripping elections of efficacy. The result known in advance, elections can be held frequently”. Nevertheless,such an approach to the election is not only depressing; it also tends to relegate the efforts of the often very harshly critiqued democratic opposition in Azerbaijan. This time a coalition, the National Council for Democratic Forces (Milli Şura), managed to nominate one mutual candidate to represent the ‘oppositionists’, something that is basically unprecedented in this context. Sure, their efforts could be seen as too little too late and IlhamAliyev still won a landslide victory getting 85% of the votes. Nevertheless, short of a color revolution, the determination of the opposition forces did contribute to making this election as exciting as it getsunder electoral authoritarianism.

    Foreign investment and economic integration: Meat industry in the baltic sea region2013In: Baltic Worlds, ISSN 2000-2955, Vol. 6, no 3-4, p. 38-44Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Foreign direct investments (FDI) in the Baltic Sea region (BSR) on the macro level and in connection with trade have been discussed at length in the economics literature. However, studies on FDI behavior in the BSR on the meso or micro level have been scarce. Through an analysis of the BSR food industry FDIs, we study the motives and aims of the industry’s merger and acquisitions (M&A), and the institutional influences on such investment decisions. We conclude that 1) the FDI motives and aims are still following those predicted by mainstream internationalization theories, 2) technology and management practice transfers, along with host country firm abilities to absorb spillovers, have been a strong feature in the post-acquisition restructuring and efficiency enhancing activities, and 3) investment decisions have been heavily influenced by institutional considerations, especially those concerning institutional risks and corruption.

    Local differences and the importance of cohesion2016In: Baltic Worlds, ISSN 2000-2955, Vol. 9, no 1-2, p. 46-56Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Two Polish cities, Warsaw and Poznań, are studied in the article to examine how external structures are handled and used by squatters in these two settings. The aim is to analyze opportunity structures that condition the emergence and development of squatting and how squatters respond to and utilize these opportunities. Our ambition is to understand why squatting has developed differently in the two cities by emphasizing the duration and cohesion of the squatting scene as pivotal for the different trajectories of squatting. It is argued in the article that the durability of the squatting environment abates tendencies to open the squatting scene to external coalitions and establish more institutionalized forms of political struggle.

    Cracks in the "Iron Curtain". The evolution of political contacts between Soviet Estonia and the Estonian emigration in Sweden before pererstroika2015In: Baltic Worlds, ISSN 2000-2955, Vol. 8, no 1-2, p. 75-85Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Almost throughout the Cold War, opportunities for  interacting with the occupied home countries were severely limited for tens of thousands Baltic war refugees and their offspring in the West. However, the evolution of political contacts between exile activists in Sweden and the occupied homeland sheds light on the largely underresearched phenomenon of anticommunist cooperation between capitalist and communist societies and challenges the narrative of the impermeability of the “Iron Curtain” between the Soviet Union and the West.

    Socialist Realism in Translation: The Theory of a Practice2016In: Baltic Worlds, ISSN 2000-2955Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Following the 1934 establishing of socialist realism as the main “method” to be applied in all spheres of Soviet artistic production, there evolved more particular discourses addressing the issue of how the concept was to be interpreted and defined within the various fields of culture.  Literary translation was no exception. At the First All-Union Conference of Translators in Moscow in 1936 some attempts were made to articulate the requirements put on translators in order to adhere to the new standards. It was not until the end of the 1940s and beginning of the 1950s, however, that the discourse took more concrete forms, notably in the efforts to establish “realist translation” as a guiding principle for Soviet translation in general. Drawing on archival and printed material from the period, this paper explores the significance of the discourse on socialist realism for Soviet translation practices and translation theory during late Stalinism.
