    The Housing Question under Capitalist Political Economies2014In: Housing, Theory and Society, ISSN 1403-6096, E-ISSN 1651-2278, Vol. 31, no 4, p. 422-428Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This short article is a reply to four commentaries that were written in response to our paper "Centering Housing in Political Economy". Rather than discussing each of the commentaries separately, we have chosen to distil and discuss four themes that appear important both to the commentators and to us: theory and abstraction; land rent; mortgage securitization; and the role of the state. Our discussion of theory advances the claim that theories and frameworks that take not only the economics of housing but also its politics, history, geography and institutions seriously can in principle be commensurate under the critical realist ontology suggested by two of our commentators. Our discussion of securitization adds to the existing literature on the theorization of the spatial fix and the circuits of capital. Finally, in reconsidering the housing question in political economy, we argue that you cannot today come to grips with the laws of the latter without factoring in on the centrality of the former.

    Images – screens, brains and bodies2008Conference paper (Other (popular scientific, debate etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Moving from the ontological question ”what is an image?” to the more performative, or ontogenetic, question “what can an image do?” this paper will discuss how non-representational theory could offer new ways to approach the materialities of the image.

    Drawing upon Gilles Deleuze’s writings on the cinematic image, Charles Sanders Peirce’s semiotics and Henri Bergson’s writings on duration and memory this paper is interested in how images configure thought. Behind this argument lies the idea that there is more to information and communication than traditional systems of representation suggest. What we will focus on in this paper is some of the practical problems, as well as the benefits, of conceptualising images as something other than representational.

    The paper will outline a discussion which focuses on three images – screens, brains and bodies. An underlying aim of this paper is to ask the much broader question: what would happen to the hyphen of geo-graphy if we were to take Deleuze’s call to create a thought without an image serious?

    Bostadsmarknad och bostadsformer för andra halvan av livet2012In: Äldres boende: forskningsperspektiv i Norden / [ed] Catharina Nord & Marianne Abramsson, Stockholm: Studentlitteratur, 2012, 1, p. 157-168Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna antologi diskuteras äldres boendeförhållanden utifrån ett samhälls- och individperspektiv. Äldres boende inkluderar såväl kvarboende i vanliga bostäder som boende i bostäder särskilt avsedda för äldre. I boken behandlas fysiska och sociala aspekter på boendet, äldres bostadsmarknad och boendepreferenser. De olika kapitlen exemplifierar olika sätt att studera äldre och deras boendesituation och visar på den variation av områden inom vilka forskning om äldres boende bedrivs. Tillsammans ger de en bred bild av äldres boendesituation och lyfter fram de frågor som särskilt berör äldre, alltifrån de friska och mer rörliga äldre med stora valmöjligheter till de multisjuka äldre som lever längre med sina sjukdomar. Denna heterogenitet ställer stora krav på äldres bostäder och boendemiljöer.

    Antologin är avsedd att utgöra ett underlag för kurser om äldres boende ur ett samhällsvetenskapligt perspektiv. Den vänder sig också till aktörer i kommunal produktion av bostäder och omsorg samt andra med intresse för  äldres bostadsfrågor.

    Alla författare är medlemmar i Nordiska nätverket för forskning om äldres boende.

    Riots, Segregation, and Local Government Actions: A Missing Theoretical Perspective2011Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous research has convincingly shown that residential segregation and unfavorable political structures are important factors when explaining the occurrence of riots. Still, structural factors such as these cannot, in themselves, explain why riots take place instead of peaceful protests or complete inactivity. In this paper I argue that more scholarly attention should be paid to the immediate triggers of riots, specific events that almost always involve actors within local government institutions of social control —in the form of the police, politicians, or the courts. The actions undertaken by these actors must be considered, because these actions are crucial in causing riot outbreaks and are undertheorized in previous research, I argue. The aim of this paper is to develop this theoretical approach and illustrating the approach with empirical data on the 1992 Los Angeles riot, the most violent riot in the U.S.A. since the 1960s.

    The Puzzle of Gender-Equal Political Participation in Sweden: The Importance of Norms and Mobilization2009In: Scandinavian Political Studies, ISSN 0080-6757, E-ISSN 1467-9477, Vol. 32, no 3, p. 315-336Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Political participation is higher among men than women in most parts of the world. However, earlier research has shown that this does not hold true in Scandinavia, including Sweden, where gender differences are remarkably small. This article studies the causes of the Swedish situation. A conventional hypothesis is formulated based on research from other parts of the world. It assumes that gender-equal participation in Sweden can be explained by the lack of gender differences in certain political resource and motivational factors that are often analyzed. However, this hypothesis is not supported by the data, which instead indicates a female disadvantage with regard to both resources and motivation. Two alternative hypotheses are developed and shown as empirically viable. The first assumes that women more often adhere to norms that emphasize the importance of being politically active, which promotes their participation in politics. The second focuses on collective mobilization based on interests specific to women. In line with this hypothesis, only women are shown to be members of women's organizations and hold more radical opinions on issues related to gender equality and reproduction. These factors have a positive impact on women's participation, and together they explain a noticeable amount of the male advantage with regard to conventional explanatory factors. Therefore they are important contributory causes of gender-equal participation in Sweden, although other factors, not discussed here, also contribute. Quantitative methods are used in the analyses, and the study material is the 1997 Swedish Citizenship Survey.

    Political Trust as Modest Expectations: Exploring Immigrants’ Falling Confidence in Swedish Political Institutions2013Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Recent studies report high levels of political trust among immigrants in Western Europe. Notably, such confidence tend to be particularly pronounced among immigrants from countries without democratic institutions and poor records in terms of corruption level. Yet over time, members of these population categories tend to express decreasing levels of political trust. Following previous research, such a pattern may be explained by high initial—although with time retreating—expectations concerning the quality of institutions in Western Europe. Analyzing Swedish survey data—particularly appropriate in the light of competing hypotheses concerning acculturation and barriers to integration, including discrimination—this paper presents additional support for the importance of expectations when it comes to political trust. Our analyses suggest that the gradual development of more modest expectations regarding institutional performance in the new country is a trustworthy explanation of the falling levels of immigrants‘ political trust.

    Abstract [sv]

    Falska nyheter har blivit ett omdiskuterat fenomen i samband med politiska val de senaste åren. En motreaktion har varit faktagranskningar som ska förhindra att felaktiga uppgifter får fäste. Vi redogör för ett experiment om hur attityden till invandringens kostnader påverkades av en felaktig uppgift samtidigt som korrekt information gavs. De som fick ta del av uppgiften om mycket överdrivna kostnader var betydligt mer benägna att anse att för mycket resurser läggs på invandring jämfört med en kontrollgrupp som enbart fick ta del av korrekt infor-mation. Resultatet tyder på att faktagranskningar har begränsad möjlighet att lösa problemet med falska nyheter

    Effekterna av fluorid i dricksvattnet2017Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Många länder fluoriderar dricksvattnet som en folkhälsoåtgärd. Det finns starkt stöd i tidigare forskning att fluorid förbättrar tandhälsan, men det har även uppkommit en diskussion huruvida det finns negativa bieffekter på kognitiv utveckling. I denna studie undersöker vi om exponering för högre fluoridhalter påverkar kognitiv förmåga, matematikresultat och arbetsmarknadsutfall senare i livet. Vi använder svensk registerdata för individer födda mellan 1985 och 1992 tillsammans med statistik över fluoridhalten i dricksvattnet. För att studera effekterna av fluorid utnyttjar vi det faktum att fluoridhalten i dricksvattnet varierar naturligt. Vi undersöker först effekten på tandhälsa och vi finner positiva effekter. Vi finner inga effekter på kognitiv förmåga eller på matematikresultat. Däremot indikerar våra resultat att inkomsten påverkas positivt, vilket tyder på att bättre tandhälsa kan förbättra individens position på arbetsmarknaden.

    Free Movement?: The Onward Migration of EU Citizens Born in Somalia, Iran, and Nigeria2016In: Population, Space and Place, ISSN 1544-8444, E-ISSN 1544-8452, Vol. 22, no 1, p. 84-98Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Research into the mobility of European Union (EU) citizens has contributed to a better understanding of the social effects of European integration. A growing body of literature highlights that naturalised third-country nationals are also making use of their 'freedomof movement'. This paper proposes a typology of 'new EU citizens' who onward migrate between member states. It draws on relevant statistics and qualitative empirical research carried out with Dutch-Somalis, Swedish-Iranians, and German-Nigerians who relocated to the UK. In contrast to research with native-born EU movers, our findings indicate that the majority of naturalised EU citizens onward migrated as a result of the discrimination and racism they experienced in their previous place of residence. In this paper, we conceptualise the interactions of integration and transnationalism as a potential trigger for onward migration. We illustrate how onward migrants are able to complete certain aspects of their integration process in a second member state. Moreover, we show how migrants maintain transnational ties across several destinations and therefore contribute to a broader understanding of transnationalism.

    Abstract [en]

    Years of 1940s in the Turkish History had been an era that had been observed various societal developments related with social and political aspects. By this view, II. World War years in the first half of the 1940s caused different and concrete effects on the Turkish intellectual, economical and political life. Those developments in line with the Western-and US-oriented socio-political and economical effects observed at thesecond half of the 1940s could be accepted as one of the most important thresh-holds of the Republican history. It is due to the situation that Turkey has commenced to engage into a total entegration with the Western World during this period regarding socio-economical, cultural and democratization aspects. However, years of the 1940s had been actually years of unstabilization and muti-faceted effects stemming from the reasons due to social and political areas. While situations, effects, approaches and pressures had realized for every sides and classes in the society, the relations between society and politics in Turkey during the years of 1940s have a great value in examining the issue in line with the acceptance that those years could act as mirror for current times. Therewithal, themainaim of this study is to examine the relation between society and politics in Turkey during the years of 1940s.

    Rethinking Cyber Warfare: Timeless, Normless and Unconstrained2018In: IKSAD Journal, ISSN 2630-6166, Vol. 4, no 9, p. 195-214Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Improvements in cybernetics have made likely far reaching shifts in all areas of life. Thus, the scientific-technological developments after 1950s gave rise to “the information revolution” from which national security has quite been affected as well. The rapid growth in the fields of computing created a new realm of fantasy called cyberspace. As a phenomenon, cyberspace has the potential for enormous avails and advantages as well as unpredictable risks. There are three major dimensions all associated with cyberspace: technologies, policies and disputes. In order to analyze the real damage that a hypothetical cyber-war or individual act of cyber warfare could do to the citizens of any nation coming under attack, it is fundamental to begin with some reflections which will help us reach a full understanding of the phenomenon, and its related practical implications as well as impacts. Since cyberspace comprises many complicating matters, it is a further difficulty of developing new combative techniques, tools and norms in an area that is inherently secretive. Cyber-attackers do not announce who they are and the victims may not want to admit having been vulnerable. By this view, this research will specifically examine timeless, normless and unconstrained cyber warfare by rethinking its history, content, associated emerging policies and focus on the question of national security in light of the cyberspace phenomenon.

    Abstract [tr]

    Türkiye, Avrasya’nın tam ortasında birçok küresel etkili bölgesel sorunun içinde yaşayan bir ülkedir.  Avrasya’nın Doğu Akdeniz’inde yer alan Kıbrıs da Türkiye için bu anlamda gerek jeostratejik, gerekse jeoekonomik olarak vazgeçilemez bir coğrafi aktördür. Zira Doğu Akdeniz’in tabanının altında, özellikle de Kıbrıs’ın güneyinde mali değeri oldukça yüksek hidrokarbon zenginlikleri bulunduğu iddia edilmektedir. Güney Kıbrıs Rum Yönetimi (GKRY) de, adada GKRY tarafından temsil edilmeyen Kıbrıs Türk halkı ve onun devleti olan Kuzey Kıbrıs Türk Cumhuriyeti (KKTC)’nin mevcudiyetinin hilafına, bu muhtemel zenginliklerden tek başına yararlanmaya çalışmaktadır. Ada çevresindeki zengin deniz-dibi kaynakları ile ortaya çıkan yeni menfaat yumağının, Kıbrıs uyuşmazlığının denize de yayılmasına sebebiyet verdiği aşikârdır. Bu bağlamda çalışmada, ulusal güvenlik bağlamında Kıbrıs Adası’nın önemi, Türkiye’nin Doğu Akdeniz’de deniz güvenliğine katkıları ve Doğu Akdeniz’deki son gelişmelerin Kıbrıs Sorunu’nun çözümüne muhtemel etkileri üzerine bir inceleme ve analiz yapılmıştır.

    Woman of “Democratic” Participation2018Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Role of woman in making life more democratic is crystal-clear if one believes in "democratic" democracy. This means that all around the world today, there are many Republics with democracy implementations in them. However, most of them is 'so-called' democracies; because firstly, being a republic does not mean being a democracy, and secondly and more importantly, being a democratic state does not mean being a democ-racy since -in our thinking- democracy should for sure comprise of liking and respecting each other, being tolerant and showing empathy and good-will. This kind of democracy could be a "democratic" democracy then. Otherwise accomplishing theo-retical basis and needs of democracy written in literature, such as free elections, free press, right for being elected etc. will not become a real democracy. Thus, role of woman in making life more democratic is so important to consider. This is due to the fact that women's full participation in national and local politics, in the economy, in academia and the media is fundamental to democracy and essential to the achievement of sustainable development and peace in all contexts -during peace, through conflict and post-conflict, and during political transitions. If a political system neglects women's participation, if it evades accountability for women's rights, it fails half of its citizens. Indeed, true democracy is based on the realization of human rights and gender equality. If one of these falters, so do the others.

    Abstract [sv]

     

     

    I föreliggande text kommer jag att diskutera tillblivelsen av Uppsala renhållningsverk. Detta kommer att ske i termer av modernitet och det moderna samhällets utveckling. Kan vi kalla renhållningsverket

    modernt? Om så är fallet, på vilket sätt? Min ambition i denna uppsats är att undersöka det moderna samhällets framväxt och detta kommer att exemplifieras utifrån den utbredning av kommunal verksamhet som stod att finna under slutet av 1800-talet i Uppsala, då renhållningen i staden gick från att vara en privat angelägenhet till att bli ett offentligt ansvar. Redan här kan vi slå fast att ett större offentligt ansvar är en del av det moderna projektet, eller det moderna samhället. Vad är det för idéer som får Uppsala stad att genomföra detta skifte och på vilka grunder görs det? Givetvis går det inte att diskutera det moderna samhällets framväxt ur ett exempel, men min tes är att det går att diskutera de mekanismer som är drivande i det moderna. Vad som redan här i inledningen bör poängteras är att modernitetsbegreppet inte åsyftar en historiens röda tråd utan snarare en dekonstruktion av de allomfattande teorier som söker förklara historiens gång utifrån en enda övergripande förklaringsmodell, exempelvis kapitalismen. Vi kan inte med hjälp av moderniseringsteorier eller det vaga begreppet det moderna projektet fånga det moderna samhällets framväxt under ett paraplybegrepp och därmed luta oss tillbaka med de flesta trådarna sammanbundna i en teori som innefattar alla samhällsomvandlande mekanismer. Jag menar att den kontext, eller tidsanda, som omgärdar idéerna om, till exempel, en offentligt skött renhållning är av största vikt för förståelsen av hur samhället förändras. Det är på detta sätt jag skall studera tillblivelsen av renhållningsverket i Uppsala.

    Det begrepp som lättast förknippas med 1800-talets avslutande del är

    industrialiseringen, vilket utgör bakgrunden till samhällsomvandling i form av ekonomisk tillväxt och växande urban befolkning. Jag vill inte ge mig in på diskussionen om vad som kom först och lämnar därmed diskussionen om urbanisering och industrialisering och riktar blicken mot den nya formen av urbant liv och urbana frågor som uppstår i och med en ökad produktion, fattigdom, trångboddhet och stadsgytter. Detta blev allt mer påtagliga aspekter av stadsbilden under slutet av 1800-talet i Sverige. Vilket kommer att finnas med i bakgrunden då jag diskuterar de åtgärder för en renare stadsmiljö som togs kring sekelskiftet 1900. Den urbana situationen genererade flera försök till att lösa problematiken kring de ökade utsläppen, fattigdom och hygien. Idéer om, och kritik mot, städernas organisation kom i många fall från England där också industrialiseringen och urbaniseringen kommit lägst och där den oreglerade stadstillväxten hade mest vittgående konsekvenser. Idéer om stadsplanering och strategier för fattigdomens bekämpning, hygienens och renlighetens främjande framfördes, dels i form av stadsplaneutopier såsom trädgårdsstaden och dels i form av idéer om offentligt ansvar och planering som ett redskap för ökad hälsa. Jag vill i denna uppsats ta till vara på den syn på renhållning och hygien som kom i och med kritiken av städers sanitära standard.

    I en text av detta omfång kan inte alla aspekter av 1800-talslivet tas upp och det är inte heller syftesuppfyllande att göra det. Jag har begränsat mig i tid från 1875 till 1907. Detta för att Hälsovårdsstadgan för rikets städer från 1874 kom att träda i kraft i Uppsala i januari 1875 och det avslutande året är då Uppsala stads renhållningsverk stod färdigt. De idéer som inspirerade Hälsovårdsstadgan anno 1874 kommer i mångt och mycket från den engelska kritiken av de brittiska städernas sanitära standard och en drivande agitator för sanitär revolution; Edwin Chadwick. Han var inte ensam men står i förgrunden i tillblivelsen av

    The sanitary report som behandlade de brittiska städernas sanitära standard och presenterade lösningar på den uppmärksammade problematiken. Jag kommer att göra en genomgång av de viktigaste poängerna i denna och besläktade texter och idéer om hygien, smitta och renhållning från cirka 1800 och ett sekel fram i tiden. Detta görs med vad jag bedömer vara adekvat sekundärlitteratur. Vad gäller de källor som jag valt att använda mig av begränsas dessa till Hälsovårdsnämndens protokoll, årsberättelser och skrivelser. Det är ett ganska omfattande material vilket ger en inblick i stadens organisation, i allmänhet, och i Hälsovårdsnämndens arbete i synnerhet. Därmed inte sagt att det ger en hel bild av stadens sanitära standard eller arbetet med sanitär och hälsomässig förändring. Men det råder inga tvivel om att materialet är användbart i detta syfte. Jag har valt att genomgående exkludera material från drätselkammaren, magistraten eller stadsfullmäktige. Detta på grund av att de frågor som intresserar mig ändå faller under Hälsovårdsnämndens jurisdiktion och de frågor som exempelvis magistraten motionerade om, enligt Hälsovårdsstadgan för rikets städer, tvunget skulle remitteras till Hälsovårdsnämnden för utlåtande.

    De teoretiska aspekterna av modernitet och det moderna samhället kommer i huvudsak från Anthony Giddens, Miles Ogborn och Marshall Berman. Deras texter kommer jag att diskutera och därefter presentera en variant av modernitet som kan användas i historisk forskning och ett operationaliserbart modernitetsbegrepp som är mig behjälpligt i diskussionen om Uppsalas, eventuellt moderna, renhållningsverk. Till att börja med är således min ambition tudelad. Dels vill jag diskutera modernitet, vad detta är och hur det är användbart och viktigt i historisk forskning och dels vill jag göra en detaljerad beskrivning och djupare diskussion om Hälsovårdsnämndens arbete i Uppsala med tyngdpunkt på latrinhanteringen.

    Till att börja med vill jag rikta uppmärksamheten mot de idéer om hygien, renhållning och planering som rådde under 1800-talet och därmed fånga en del av det som vagt kan kallas tidsanda, samtidigt vill jag ge en ytterligare bakgrund för att på ett adekvat sätt kunna diskutera renhållningsverket i Uppsala utifrån ett sammanhang av idéer och modernisering.
