    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.

    Reception Policies, Practices and Responses: Sweden Country Report2020Report (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This report explores reception policies, practices and humanitarian responses to the current refugee crisis in Sweden, focusing on the aftermath of 2015 unprecedented refugee migration, and also providing a brief historical perspective. Sweden has been known as one of the most generous countries in terms of welcoming refugees and providing an easy path to citizenship but its migration and reception policy has taken a ‘restrictive turn’ in recent years. The refugee crisis in 2015 has not only opened the window for ‘a major policy shift’ and ‘historical’ legislative changes to the Swedish migration and reception policy but also impacted the social, economic and political  sphere instigating anti-immigrant sentiments.

    Border Management and Migration Controls in Sweden: Country Report2019Report (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    From a comparative European perspective, Sweden is generally known as a country pursuing relatively liberal asylum policies. One distinguishing feature of Swedish immigration policy has been the principle that persons who are given asylum are immediately granted permanent residence (although the law allows exemptions from this under certain circumstances).

    This report gives an overview of the Swedish legal and policy framework of border management and migration control – how it relates to EU regulations and policies; what key actors are involved in the implementation and what the key issues and challenges are in relation to this field.

    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.

    Religion, Trust in Institutions and Attitudes toward Abortion: A comparison of Lutheran and Orthodox countries2019In: Euthanasia, Abortion, Death Penalty and Religion - The Right to Life and its Limitations: International Empirical Research / [ed] Ziebertz, Hans-Georg, and Zaccaria, Francesco, Berlin: Springer, 2019, 1, p. 271-300Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article compares student’s attitudes towards human rights in countries with different religious traditions, namely Lutheran dominated Scandinavian countries and Eastern Orthodox countries in the eastern part of Europe. The four countries involved in this study are Belarus, Romania, Norway and Sweden. Our focus is student’s attitudes towards questions related to the right to life, in this case abortion. The effect that religion and religiosity have on attitudes towards abortion is a central part of the analyses. In addition, we will look at the relationship between trust in institutions and support for certain human rights. Previous studies found that trust in institutions was positively correlated with values that stress stability, protection, and preservation of traditional practices, and negatively correlated with values that emphasize independent thought and change.  On this basis we expect  that trust in governmental institutions have different effects on attitudes in countries with democratic and authoritarian regimes.

    'Stay Awhile and Listen': Understanding the Dynamics of Mediatization, Authority, and Literacy in Swedish Religious Education2019Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article-based dissertation is to explore the role media play in Swedish Religious Education (RE). The purpose is to study Swedish RE teachers’ practices and how these can be related to various dynamics of mediatization, authority, and literacy. Conducted within the Teaching Religion in Late Modern Sweden project at Uppsala University, this study draws on a national survey, as well as semi-structured interviews and classroom observations with 22 RE teachers. Four specific research questions are posed, each addressed separately in four articles. (1) What kinds of media materials do Swedish RE teachers use in their teaching? (2) What kinds of media dynamics are present in RE classrooms where media materials are used? (3) How can RE teachers’ and students’ engagements with mediated religion be analysed from a multiple media literacies perspective? And, (4) how do RE teachers construct authority on religion in a mediatized situation? The first question is approached through a quantitative analysis of survey material, while the three remaining questions were analysed by the use of qualitative thematic analysis of the observations and interviews. The study finds that RE teachers in Sweden use and relate to various forms of media to a large extent in their daily teaching practices, and that these engagements with mediated religion illustrate the complex balance between the individual agency of the teacher on the one hand, and the media dynamics of amplification, framing and performative agency, and co-structuring, on the other. The teachers’ practices in relation to this are in the study viewed as a form of institutional work that is both caused by, and a contributing factor to, an increased mediatization of contemporary Swedish RE. The findings of the four articles are discussed in light of previous research on mediatization of religion in a Nordic context, specifically with regard to literacy and authority. The author argues that by studying these processes within an educational setting – a context that until recently has been under-explored within mediatization of religion research – the study provides new empirical as well as theoretical knowledge not only to the field of sociology of religion, but also to research on authority and religious education.

    Abstract [en]

    Recent studies show that religious education (RE) and various media outlets serve as increasingly important arenas for religious socialisation among Swedish youths. At the same time it has been shown that media material, for example in the form of various news media, often make their way into RE classrooms to be used as materials alongside the more traditional textbooks. However, little quantitative research has been conducted in order to map RE teachers’ selection and use of materials in their classrooms, and what factors are involved in this selection. A nationally representative survey among 1292 RE teachers was conducted, and the results clearly show that textbooks are the most popular form of material, followed by pictures, sacred texts, documentaries, television news and news articles. Out of the relevant background variables it was primarily school form, age, gender and religiosity that seemed to influence the teachers’ choices of material. The author concludes that familiarity with a certain form of material through personal experiences is a likely explanation for many of the correlations found, and that further research is needed in order to explore the potential complexities that arise in the juxtaposition of classroom and media logics.

    Abstract [en]

    This chapter presents two empirical case studies of religious education (RE) in Norway and in Sweden. In addition to introducing the Upper Secondary School section of the present volume, the chapter explores how media materials and discourses are being extensively used in a similar fashion as part of RE in both countries. Media materials and discourses serve to both contextualize the content of the subject and to legitimize RE by showing why religion is relevant for contemporary Norwegian and Swedish society; thus, they form an important part of the RE lessons. Applying a mediatization perspective, we argue that this use of media impacts both the choice of topics addressed and the way they are presented, as it inserts various media dynamics into the pedagogical practice of religious education.

    Abstract [en]

    This article takes as its point of departure the view that, in Sweden, media in various forms act as one of the main settings where young people encounter religion, both in schools and elsewhere. With a seemingly ever-expanding development of communication technology, researchers and politicians alike are arguing for the need to educate our citizens in media literacy. By applying the concept of multiple media literacy, the authors of this article argue that depending on if media is viewed as (1) conduits, (2) languages, or (3) environments, the skills needed to critically engage with various kinds of media differs. Using Swedish religious education (RE) as an illustrative example, the authors conclude that increased focus within RE on the production variables, and on the complex nature of social media, would likely result in a richer media literacy for students and teachers alike.

    Abstract [en]

    This article explores how teachers of religious education in Sweden construct their authority on religion. Employing the conceptual understanding of teachers of religious education as co-authors, and their authority as relational, the author discusses how authority on religion can be gained and maintained in a society characterized by the intersection of secularization, multiculturalism and media saturation. Through an analysis of a particular case, the author concludes that various media play an integral part in the construction of the teacher’s authority on religion, and that the concepts of co-structuring, amplification, and framing and performative agency are well suited for exploring the relationship between authority and media in this context. In exploring a setting often overlooked in previous research on the interplay between media, religion and authority, this article contributes to the field by adding an empirically informed discussion on shifting authority on religion outside religious institutions or organizations.

    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.

    "The Police Cannot Be Present at Every Transaction": Regulating Marketplace Meetings between Taxi Drivers and Passengers in Asheville, North Carolina, 1914-19222020In: Journal of urban history, ISSN 0096-1442, E-ISSN 1552-6771, Vol. 46, no 2, p. 364-382Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the contentious regulation of taxicabs in Asheville, North Carolina, to explore the strains on and supplements to paternalistic ways of knowing and governing in New South cities in the early twentieth century. Authorities attempted to manage marketplace meetings between drivers and patrons to create predictable and transparent places out of taxis in motion. Regulations governed who could act as driver and as customer, where they could meet, and the rates that the former could charge. However, each of these stages tended to produce spaces that resisted elites' disciplinary aspirations. The regulation of taxis undermined paternalistic ways of governing and knowing the city while facilitating the dispersal of objective knowledge-creating technologies such as taximeters. Commissioners' exercise of power rested on the belief that they could know taxi drivers, while taximeters' exercise of power rested on the belief that they could know the city.

    Abstract [en]

    The chapter examines theories of public visibility of religions. The separation of public life and religion is not as strong as the secularization paradigm implied. Casanova's (1994) concept of deprivatization of religion, Berger's (1999) idea of the return of religion and Habermas's (2008) concept of post-secular society are three ways of expressing the public visibility of religion. The chapter focuses primarily on the three-part description of the post-secular society by Habermas (2008). The chapter also discusses the relationship between religion and politics. Recent political discussions about family, marriage and sexuality have opened the doors of politics to religion in Finland. The author interprets the role of Nordic churches as social resources as an example of a post-secular situation.

    Mapping a field of ”religious” and “nones”: Lessons from a survey on youth and religion in Sweden2019In: Understanding Religion: Empirical Perspectives in Practical Theology Essays in Honour of Hans-Georg Ziebertz / [ed] Riegel, Ulrich; Heil, Stefan; Kalbheim, Boris & Alexander Unser, Münster: Waxmann Verlag, 2019, p. 79-96Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter addresses the methodological challenge of operationalizing religion through survey questions in religiously diverse and individualized societies. Social and religious changes in the form of religious diversity, individualization and non-religion call for questions that manage to account for variety and individuality – is that even possible in surveys, given the standardized format? This question serves as a point of departure for a critical assessment of a Swedish research project on youth and religion, ‘Religion as resource?’, directed to 16- to 24-year olds (n=1316).  We present three new survey questions through which settings for encountering religion and dimensions of personal religious identity factors are studied. By extending the level of measurement from nominal to ordinal scale, thus allowing respondents to provide responses in a more flexible way, and by combining experiences from qualitative research into the construction of questions and options, the chapter argues that social scientific research on religion can be of continued relevance in the exploration of individual attitudes on religion. The chapter concludes with a critical evaluation of how the survey questions presented should be developed further, in light of the findings.

    Editorial: The Intersection of the Popular and the Sacred in Youth Cultures2017In: Young - Nordic Journal of Youth Research, ISSN 1103-3088, E-ISSN 1741-3222, Vol. 25, no 1, p. 1-7Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.
