    Det hotade universitetet2016Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Under de drygt två hundra år som förflutit sedan det moderna forskningsuniversitetet såg dagens ljus i dåtida Preussen har vetenskap bevisligen gjort världen bättre. Fyra k:n – kunskap, kreativitet, kritikoch kollegialitet – har utgjort nyckeln till denna exempellösa framgång. Akademins framsteg har dock inte vilat på den demokratisk-politiska logik som genomsyrar dagens samhälle, utan på en parallell och alldeles egen verklighet där ett fritt sökande upprätthållits genom att forskare drivits av sitt engagemang och sin nyfikenhet. När denna anda får råda inom vetenskapen blir det också bra för samhället i stort. Men i det projektsamhälle som alltmer tar form och där tiden, resultaten och utvärderingen är centrala, framstår akademins och vetenskapens sätt att fungera som provocerande. Liksom stora delar av den offentliga verksamheten lever i dag akademin under trycket av kortsiktig resultatleverans.Hur kunde det bli så, och vad gör vi åt det?

    Denna problematik är temat för Det hotade universitetet, som är redigerad och författad av engagerade forskare, tidigare universitetsrektorer och ämbetsmän som är förskräckta över en utveckling där djup kunskap, vildsint kreativitet, kritiska samtal och kollegialt ansvar kastas på sophögen. Denna utveckling kan inte, och får inte, fortsätta. Då rycker vi undan mattan för mänskliga framsteg och ett civiliserat samhälle. Det är hög tid att försvara de värden som akademin har stått för sedan lång tid tillbaka – inte för att de är traditionella, utan för att de är det modernaste vi har.

    The illusion of accountability in the European Union2009Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This book examines accountability in the EU from different perspectives and considers whether EU citizens have real opportunities for holding decision-makers accountable. This book critically analyses five arguments which claim there are sufficient means for holding decision-makers to account in the Union. The authors examine:

    • The argument that we should rethink the meaning of accountability in the EU context
    • The claim that there is no accountability deficit in the EU because member states have the power to retrieve all delegated competencies
    • The assertion that EU citizens have effective mechanisms for holding those responsible for legislative decision-making to account
    • The contention that the arrangements that obtain at present for holding the executive power in the EU to account are acceptable
    • The belief that the involvement of organised civil society can work as an alternative to traditional forms of accountability

    The main conclusion is that the current institutional set-up and practice of decision-making in the EU is one that merely creates an illusion of accountability.

    Using a strict framework focusing on the difference between formal mechanisms and actual opportunities for accountability, this highly coherent volume will be of interest to students and scholars of European politics, especially those interested in the democratic foundations of the European political system.

    Comparing Constitutional Change in European Union Member States: In Search of a Theory2014In: Journal of Common Market Studies, ISSN 0021-9886, E-ISSN 1468-5965, Vol. 52, no 3, p. 566-581Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores the under-researched issue of how constitutional change is brought about in modern democracies. Despite the fundamental importance of constitutions, we know surprisingly little about whether constitutional change is achieved by changing the explicit wording of the constitutional document, or by way of changing the meaning of the constitution while leaving the constitutional text unaltered. Which is the more common method and what variations in the use of these different methods are there in democratic political systems? This study systematically compares the use of explicit and implicit constitutional change in European Union (EU) Member States. The results show that implicit constitutional change is the more frequently used method, but also reveal substantial differences between EU countries. The article closes by discussing the road towards a theory of constitutional change. It does so by presenting five testable propositions that could lay the foundation for a theory of constitutional change.

    Deliberation at the European Convention: The final verdict2008In: European Law Journal, ISSN 1351-5993, E-ISSN 1468-0386, Vol. 14, no 5, p. 604-619Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Negotiations in Amsterdam 1996 and Nice 2000 resulted in deadlocks impossible to break. The failure of these Intergovernmental Conferences gave rise to demands for a new and improved process of treaty reform. The answer offered by the European Council in Laeken was to create a Convention with a mandate to prepare the next reform of the treaties. The broad composition of this Convention raised hopes for a process not exclusively defined by bargaining on behalf of national interests, but rather a more open process where actors would be prepared to listen to each other's arguments. Today, we find two divergent images of deliberation in this body. The first sees the Convention as a deliberative success story; the second argues bargaining dominated the proceedings. However, this far the empirical evidence in support of either claim has been inconclusive. On the basis of interviews with 28 conventioneers, this article ventures a 'final verdict' on the matter, arguing that deliberation was, indeed, a defining characteristic of the proceedings.

    Democracy, legitimacy and the European Union2001Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    As the interdependence of political entities has increased, the capacity of single nation-states to solve important problems has diminished. Within the fields of crime, migration, the economy, and the environment, for example, it appears that co-operation among nation-states offers the only effective means of dealing with pressing issues. New sites of governance beyond the nation-state have thus been established to compensate for the loss of problem-solving capacity at the national level. The greater the significance of these new sites of governance, the greater the need for democratic processes to render their decisions legitimate. But is it possible to implement and sustain democratic and legitimate governance beyond the nation-state?

    The European Union is the most powerful of the new sites for governance beyond the nation-state. The EU has evolved from an international regime into an economic, social, and political union. Through a number of treaty reforms, the institutions of the Union have been entrusted with a wide range of legislative, executive, and judicial competencies. But has the democratic quality of EU decision-making improved as the powers of its institutions have increased?

    This study provides a comprehensive analysis of the democratic status of the EU political system and the Union's alleged legitimacy crisis. It also examines six different positions on how to address the EU's democratic deficit. Three of these defend the status quo, while the others are calling for democratisation. By examining the strengths and weaknesses of these positions, this book contributes to our understanding of whether it is possible and desirable to democratise the European Union.

    Explaining constitutional change: making sense of cross-national variation among European Union member states2016In: Journal of European Public Policy, ISSN 1350-1763, E-ISSN 1466-4429, Vol. 23, no 2, p. 255-275Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines how European Union member states have undertaken constitutional change to adjust to the new conditions that follow from membership in this supranational organization. The article seeks to explain what factors determine why constitutional reform induced by EU membership is sometimes brought about by changing the wording of the constitutional document (explicit change), and sometimes by changing the meaning of the constitution while leaving the constitutional text itself unaltered (implicit change). The current study provides new insights regarding constitutional change by formulating and testing a number of rival hypotheses about what explains cross-national variation in the use of different methods for achieving constitutional reform. The results show that three factors stand out as important determinants for EU-induced constitutional change: constitutional rigidity; public opinion; and the number of cabinet parties.

    The Convention Method Revisited: Does It Have a Future and Does It Matter?2010In: European Law Journal, ISSN 1351-5993, E-ISSN 1468-0386, Vol. 16, no 6, p. 717-735Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Scholars have argued that the Convention method has democratised the process of treaty reform and increased the legitimacy of EU constitutionalization. This study finds that the Convention method has contributed to a slightly more democratic process, but has not in any fundamental way improved the democratic status of the EU’s treaty reform process. We should accordingly not be too concerned over the future fate of the Convention method. From a democratic perspective we should be more worried over the possible scenario that future changes to the EU’s institutional structure will come about through implicit constitutional change without any formal changes being made to the treaties. The cumbersome ratification process could thereby be bypassed. This, however, would deprive EU citizens of the only real opportunities they have of influencing decisions on the overall design of the integration project.

    Constitutional change in light of European Union membership: trends and trajectories in the new member states2016In: East European Politics, ISSN 2159-9165, E-ISSN 2159-9173, Vol. 32, no 4, p. 446-465Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Constitutional change can be achieved either by changing the explicit wording of the constitutional document, or by way of changing the meaning of the constitution while leaving the constitutional text unaltered. This study systematically compares the use of these different modes of constitutional change in the new EU member states. The results show that implicit constitutional change is the more frequently used method, but also reveal substantial differences between member states. By comparing constitutional change trajectories in the Baltic States, this study reveals that public opinion, constitutional rigidity and constitutional courts stand out as important determinants for EU-induced constitutional change.

    Looking for Leaders: Perceptions of climate change leadership among climate change negotiation participants2011In: Global Environmental Politics, ISSN 1526-3800, E-ISSN 1536-0091, Vol. 11, no 1, p. 89-107Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is widespread consensus that effective leadership will be required in order to successfully address the climate change challenge. Presently there are a number of self-proclaimed climate change leaders, but leadership is a relationship between leaders and followers. An actor aspiring to be a leader needs to be recognized as such. Despite its fundamental importance for leadership relationships, the demand side of the leadership equation has been comparatively neglected by past research. In this study we are looking for leaders by analyzing the perceptions of climate change leadership among UNFCCC COP-14 participants. Our results show that the climate change leadership mantle will have to be worn by more than one actor. Among the leadership candidates the EU was most widely recognized as a leader, however, only a small minority reported that they saw the EU as the only leader. The data also show that the US and the G77 thus far have failed to impress potential followers and it was China that clearly emerged as the second strongest leadership candidate.

    The Legitimacy of Leadership in International Climate Change Negotiations2012In: Ambio, ISSN 0044-7447, E-ISSN 1654-7209, Vol. 41, no 1, p. 46-55Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Leadership is an essential ingredient in reaching international agreements and overcoming the collective action problems associated with responding to climate change. In this study we aim at answering two questions that are crucial for understanding the legitimacy of leadership in international climate change negotiations. Based on responses of three consecutive surveys distributed at COPs 14-16 we seek first to chart which actors are actually recognized as leaders by climate change negotiation participants. Secondly, we aim to explain what motivates COP participants to support different actors as leaders. Both these questions are indeed crucial for understanding the role, importance, and legitimacy of leadership in the international climate change regime. Our results show that the leadership landscape in this issue area is fragmented, with no one clear-cut leader, and strongly suggest that it is imperative for any actor seeking recognition as climate change leader to be perceived as being devoted to promoting the common good.

    The Alleged Opposition Deficit in European Union Politics: Myth or Reality?2018In: Journal of Common Market Studies, ISSN 0021-9886, E-ISSN 1468-5965Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    According to the ‘opposition deficit thesis’ European Union politics is characterized by aconspicuous absence of opposition to the policies promoted by the EU. However, once we start looking for systematic evidence supporting the claim of an opposition deficit in EU politics, we come up surprisingly empty handed. This article seeks to rectify the lacuna in previous research by examining how much and what type of opposition actually exist in EU politics. The study formulates four hypotheses on the state of political opposition in EU politics, and breaks new ground by testing their validity by use of unique data collected from the Swedish EuropeanAffairs Committee for the period 1995–2016. The results show there is in fact considerably more opposition present in EU politics than has previously been assumed. The opposition deficit thesis thus seems to be more myth than reality.
