    Public Religions in Swedish Media: A Study of Religious Actors on Three Newspaper Debate Pages 2001-20112013Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study addresses issues concerning religion in the public sphere, brought about by the debates over the perceived resurgence of religion and the post-secular. The aim is to analyze the participation of religious actors in the public, using three newspaper debate pages as the empirical material. Building on theories by Casanova, especially his concept of public religions, as well as mediatization theory and Habermas' writings on religion in the public sphere, 639 opinion pieces signed by religious actors were analyzed. The mixed-methods content analysis was conducted in two steps: first a quantitative overview of the religious actors published, to what extent and on what issues. The second step consisted of three qualitative case studies based on the results of the first step: an argument analysis of the debate over same-sex marriage; an exploration of the specific position of the Church of Sweden and the idea of the national church as a public utility; and finally a discourse analysis of articles by Jewish and Muslim authors. These were analyzed on the basis of criteria for public religions developed from Casanova’s theory and from the media logic of debate articles. While the results show no clear increase in the number of religious actors during the period under scrutiny, one notices a clear presence of Muslim and Jewish actors, eventhough Christians of varying denominations dominate the material. There are also clear differences between the different religions: minority religion contributions are limited in terms of issues and scope, while Christian groups write about more varied issues. Muslims often relate to negative media discourse towards Islam, while Jewish signatories write on a limited number of themes closely related to the group itself. In many articles, one found a meta-debate over the place of religion in the public sphere even when specific issues were debated. The contribution of this dissertation is to critically discuss the concepts and assumptions underlying the debate over the place of religion in the public sphere. It stresses the importance of media perspectives as well as empirical studies for analyzing issues of authority, visibility, private/public and religion in late modern, mediated contexts.

    Representationer, stereotyper och nyhetsvärdering: Rapport från medieanalys om representationer av muslimer i svenska nyheter2015Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med rapporten var bland annat att ge en bild av hur representationer av muslimer yttrar sig i svensk nyhetsrapportering. Ytterligare ett syfte var att sätta dessa representationer i ett sammanhang, dels genom reflektioner från redaktörer på några av de studerade medierna, dels i en vidare ram av forskning.

    Den första delen av rapporten består av en innehållsanalys av tidningsartiklar och radio-och tv-nyheter från en sju veckor lång period i oktober–november 2014. Den andra delen behandlar genomförda intervjuer med redaktörer på några av de studerade medierna.

    Analysen visade bland annat att nästan alla artiklar handlade om eller relaterade till våld, hot, islamofobi eller spänningar i samhället. Mediebilden av muslimer som sammankopplade med de negativa stereotyperna blev också stark i frånvaron av andra berättelser. Rapporten visade också att det är lite som har förändrats i relation till studier som genomfördes i Sverige för nästan 20 år sedan.

    Studien genomfördes av Centrum för forskning om religion och samhälle, Uppsala universitet som ansvarar för innehållet och för de slutsatser som dras. Studien utfördes på uppdrag av Diskrimineringsombudsmannen.

    Social Conflicts, Religion and Human Rights Support: A study of young Christians and Muslims in Scandinavia2018In: Political and judicial rights through the prism of religious belief / [ed] Sterkens, Carl & Ziebertz, Hans-Georg, Berlin: Springer, 2018Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous research among young people (Spini & Doise 1998, Doise & al 1999) has shown that attitudes toward human rights are influenced by perception of conflicts in society and experience of discrimination and that political affiliation as well as religion also may have effect. However interesting these results are for understanding what factors that may contribute to grassroots’ engagement in human rights, these studies have failed to consider important background variables such as gender and parents’ education level, but also to include a more nuanced operationalization of religion. Drawing on data gathered in Norwegian and Swedish metropolitan upper secondary schools (n=2044) this article therefore aims to replicate earlier research correcting for these research gaps. The analysis showed that while religion had a limited effect on attitudes toward political and judicial rights, controlled for background variables, the effect of experienced discrimination and perception of conflicts related to ethnicity seemed to add significantly to the models. It was also shown that Christians did not report more discrimination related to ideology and ethnicity than non-religious, but that Muslims on the other hand did report more discrimination both related to ideology and ethnicity than others. This study has shown that there is a relation between such perceived discrimination and attitudes toward political and human rights.

    Views on Human Rights among Christian, Muslim and non-religious youth in Norway and Sweden2012In: Nordic Journal of Religion and Society, ISSN 0809-7291, E-ISSN 1890-7008, Vol. 25, no 1, p. 67-81Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores the relation between religion and attitudes towards human rights among young people aged 17 to 19. The data material consists of 1660 questionnaires filled out in the classrooms by upper secondary school pupils living in the capital city of Oslo and in the Stockholm/ Uppsala area. We want first to find out if there are closer relations between religion and attitudes towards human rights concerning the private sphere than for attitudes towards human rights concerning the public sphere. By rights related to the private sphere we mean views on abortion and family values and by rights related to the public sphere we mean the right to work, views on social equality, freedom of speech, political interest and environmental protection. The study also looks at differences in this regard between Christians, Muslims and a group of nonreligious. The main result is that while a closer relation can be seen between religion and attitudes concerning the private sphere than attitudes concerning the public sphere, there is no support for the assumption that this relationship is stronger amongst the Muslim sub-group.

    Welfare and Religion in 21st Century Europe: Volume 1. Configuring the Connections2010 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This is an overview of the relationship between welfare regimes and majority churches in eight selected countries in Europe. It shows that there is a connection between the evolution of the respective welfare regime and the religious organisation prevalent in the country studied. It also shows that a changing role of the welfare state and of religious institutions give religious organisations both an innovative role and a voice in the public debate on solidarity values.

    The Challenge of Religion: Colloquium on interdisciplinary research programmes2011Conference proceedings (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Research within the area of interaction between religion, law and society has grown extensively during the last decade. There are now several programmes going on in Europe with the aim to investigate the place of religion within the private and public spheres of society.

    This collection of articles is the result of the first colloquium in Uppsala where researchers from the different Research Programmes around Europe have contributed. The initiative to the colloquium has come from The Impact of Religion: Challenges for Society, Law and Democracy, an Uppsala-based research programme running over ten years.

    An outline of the programme of the colloquium is enclosed in order to give an understanding of the scope of the meeting. The list of participants also illustrates the broad representation from different disciplines in the Faculties of Theology, Law and Social Sciences around Europe.

    Abstract [en]

    In this editorial to a themed issue of YOUNG: Nordic Journal of Youth Research, the authors discuss why an interdisciplinary approach in youth culture research can benefit from a critical reconsideration of concepts such as popular, sacred and youth. Likewise it is argued that such interdisciplinary endeavours, examplified by the contributions in this themed issue, also aids to a further and deepened understanding of this concepts also in relevant disciplines.

    Existential Experiences and Strategies in Relation to Induced Abortion: an Interview Study With 24 Swedish Women2011In: Archive for the Psychology of Religion/ Archiv für Religionspsychologie, ISSN 0084-6724, E-ISSN 1573-6121, Vol. 33, no 3, p. 345-370Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Induced abortion is as common in religious as secular cultures, but interpretations and ways to handle abortion differ. This study focuses existential aspects of abortion, in relation to a secularized context, through in-depth interviews with 24 Swedish women. Existential questions belonging to four areas were found: Life and Death, Meaning of Life, Morality and Self Image. Furthermore, four different existential strategies were found: (1) Detaching Strategies (creating distance to the pregnancy), (2) Meaning-Making Strategies (relating the abortion to one’s worldview), (3) Social Strategies (sharing the abortion with others), and (4) Symbolic Strategies (expressing the experience in bodily ways). Existential questions and strategies did not imply that the woman regretted her abortion. However, while some women easily processed existential questions, others seemed to be more at loss. In a secularized country, where many people are unaccustomed to deal with existential issues, greater existential competence among abortion personnel thus might be needed.

    Existential experiences in a clinical context: on abortion in secularized Sweden2010Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Psychological distress after abortion is uncommon, but current Swedish abortion research shows that the abortion decision may comprise strong and contradictory emotions, sometimes related to questions of existential significance. However, abortion-related existential experiences have not yet been systematically studied. The aim of this study was to investigate existential experiences in relation to induced abortion. The study was performed through semi-structured interviews with questions about decision-making, abortion process, and existential feelings, thoughts and acts. Eighteen women, aged 21-38, with experience of abortions participated. The interviews were analyzed with latent content analysis.

    Existential questions concerning life and death, self-understanding, meaning and morality were found in the material; only one of the interviews was devoid of existential issues. However, this implied neither that the decision was difficult for the women to make, nor that the women were unsatisfied with their abortions. Four different existential practices were found in the material, showing how the women tried to deal with the existential questions through (1) cognitive practices (protecting themselves from difficult emotions), (2) meaning-making practices (finding ways to understand and justify the event), (3) narrative practices (sharing their experiences), and (4) symbolic-ritual practices (dealing with the experience in bodily or expressive ways).

    The study sheds light on secularized forms of meaning-making and contributes with knowledge about women’s existential experiences and needs in relation to induced abortion. The study shows that existential aspects of abortion can affect the wellbeing of aborting women. Existential aspects of abortion are seldom acknowledged within the clinical context. The study offers new perspectives to understand this dimension.

    Women’s existential experiences within Swedish abortion care2011In: Journal of Psychosomatic Obstetrics and Gynaecology, ISSN 0167-482X, E-ISSN 1743-8942, Vol. 32, no 1, p. 35-41Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: To explore Swedish women’s experiences of clinical abortion care in relation to their need for existential support.

    Methods: Individual in-depth interviews with 24 women with previous experience of unwanted pregnancy and abortion. Participants were recruited between 2006 and 2009. Interviews were analysed by latent content analysis.

    Findings: Although the women had similar experiences of the abortion care offered, the needs they expressed differed. Swedish abortion care was described as rational and neutral, with physical issues dominating over existential ones. For some women, the medical procedures triggered existential experiences of life, meaning, and morality. While some women abstained from any form of existential support, others expressed a need to reflect upon the existential aspects and/or to reconcile their decision emotionally.

    Conclusion: As women’s needs for existential support in relation to abortion vary, women can be disappointed with the personnel’s ability to respond to their thoughts and feelings related to the abortion. To ensure abortion care personnel meet the physical, psychological, and existential needs of each patient, better resources and new lines of education are needed to ensure abortion personnel are equipped to deal with the existential aspects of abortion care.

    Existential experiences and needs related to induced abortion in a group of Swedish women: a quantitative investigation2012In: Journal of Psychosomatic Obstetrics and Gynaecology, ISSN 0167-482X, E-ISSN 1743-8942, Vol. 33, no 2, p. 53-61Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: To investigate the prevalence of existential experiences and needs among women involved in induced abortion.

    Methods: A questionnaire was used to collect information from 499 women requesting an induced abortion. A principle component analysis resulted in three components of existential experiences and needs, labelled: existential thoughts, existential practices, and humanisation of foetus. These components were analysed in relation to background data and other data from the questionnaire.

    Results: Existential experiences and needs were common. Existential thoughts about life and death, meaning and morality were related to abortion experience for 61% of women. Almost 50% of women, reported a need for special acts in relation to the abortion; and, 67% of women considered the pregnancy in terms of a child. A higher degree of existential components correlated to difficulty in making the abortion decision and poor psychological wellbeing after the abortion.

    Conclusion: Women’s experiences of abortion can include existential thoughts about life, death, meaning and morality, feelings of connectedness to the foetus, and the need for symbolic expression. This presents a challenge for abortion personnel, as the situation involves complex aspects beyond medical procedures and routines.

    Politicisation of Religion in Scandinavian Parliamentary Debates 1988–20092014In: Politics, Religion & Ideology, ISSN 2156-7689, E-ISSN 2156-7697, Vol. 15, no 4, p. 565-582Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to study possible changes in the politicisation of religion in Scandinavia over time in records from parliamentary debates in Denmark, Norway and Sweden 1988–1989, 1998–1999 and 2008–2009. The study has shown that religion has been more politicised in terms of the number of speeches and debates with references to religion and the degree of problematisation of religion in Denmark and Norway. That is particularly the case with right-wing populist parties in opposition to Islam that possibly use it as a way of profiling in political competition. In contrast, Sweden has not seen a similar development, which may be due to the fact that it did not have a right-wing populist party in its parliament until 2010. The empirical findings of this study are discussed in relation to theories on globalisation and the boundary disputes that may arise as a consequence of globalisation, not least when religion, and particularly Islam, has been perceived to challenge societal core values.
