    Power and Legitimacy - Challenges from Russia2012Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This book sheds new light on the continuing debate within political thought as to what constitutes power, and what distinguishes legitimate from illegitimate power. It does so by considering the experience of Russia, a polity where experiences of the legitimacy of power and the coppalse of power offer a contrast to Western experiences on which most political theory, formulated in the West, is based.

    Human Rights as Ethics, Politics, and Law2014Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study offers a critical approach to the connections between the law, politics, and morality as they figure in human rights discourse. It argues that human rights must be understood – ethically, politically, and legally – through the prism of reasonable skepticism towards the legitimacy of contemporary institutions for the protection of human rights. The colonial legacy of human rights, the lack of transparent principles for dealing with conflicting rights, and the counterproductive overemphasis upon the importance of legal instruments are considered as offering serious challenges to the lasting legitimacy of human rights. These challenges are analyzed by means of selected human rights-related cases as well as theoretical discussion.

    Identitet och främlingskap: En kristologisk kritik av flyktingpolitiken2010In: Svensk teologisk kvartalskrift, ISSN 0039-6761, Vol. 86, no 3, 107-116 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Artikelns syfte är att föreslå en tolkning av kristologin som skulle kunna användas för att kritisera den nutida flyktingpolitiken i Europa. Med avstamp i kontrasten mellan den moderna synen på identitet och den traditionella relationella identitets-förståelsen jämförs den judiska etiken hos Cohen och Levinas med resurserna i den kristna teologin. Den traditionella kristologin ställs emot den radikala osäkerhetens kristologi, vars syn på identitet avslöjar det omoraliska i den nutida europeiska flyktingpolitiken.

    Identity and the Stranger: A Christological Critique of Refugee Politics2011In: Political Theology, ISSN 1462-317X, E-ISSN 1743-1719, Vol. 12, no 6, 813-829 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    The purpose of this article is to suggest an interpretation of Christology

    that would be an effective tool for theological critique of current refugee

    politics in Europe. The author claims that the European view on the

    stranger is grounded in a particular philosophy of individualistic identity

    which can be contrasted to the traditional understanding of identity as

    relational. This relational understanding is exemplified by Jewish theology

    and the philosophy of Hermann Cohen and Emmanuel Levinas. It suggests

    that identity is not a condition of moral responsibility but a derivative

    of it. Cohen’s interpretation of the meaning of monotheism is one of the

    most interesting elaborations on this idea. The author of the article claims

    that the traditional understanding of Christology can be revaluated by the

    notion of a radical uncertainty of the identity of Christ. This uncertainty is

    not an uncertainty about Christ’s divine nature. The radical christological

    uncertainty is about the impossibility of proving the identity of God, an

    identity which calls for an act of responsibility and for a capacity to recognize

    the very God in a stranger seeking protection and lacking evidence

    for his identity.

    Kamp med förnuftet: rysk kritik av västerländsk rationalism2009Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I boken diskuteras den skepsis mot västerländsk rationalism som möter hos Fjodor Dostojevskij, Lev Sjestov och Michail Bachtin. Det påvisas att den ryska kritiken har stor relevans för nutida etik och moralteologi. Den kan på ett intressant sätt bidra till de diskussioner om förnuft och rationalism som idag förs inom ramen för postmodern filosofi och teologi.

    Kolonialistiskt helgon i rättighetskatalogen: En reflektion över yttrandefrihetens status2008In: Religion och Existens, ISSN 1653-8110, 7-18 p.Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Artikeln erbjuder en kritisk reflektion över yttrandefrihetens status i Väst. Kritikens teoretiska bas är tesen om att de mänskliga rättigheternas universalistiska anspråk kräver att alla stater är beredda att redogöra för sina kriterier för hanteringen av de rättighetskonflikter som uppstår. I samma mån som det inte är rimligt för en muslimsk stat att med bara åberopande av Sharia åsidosätta vissa grundläggande människorättsparagrafer är det inte rimligt att hävda att ”vår demokratiska tradition” kräver att yttrandefrihet alltid äger företräde. I artikeln utformas ett förslag till hur en kommunikativt rationell avvägning mellan rättigheterna kan göras.

    Orthodox Theology and the Temptation of Power2013In: State, Religion and Church in Russia and Worldwide / Gosudarstvo, religiia, tserkov' v Rossii i za rubezhom, Vol. 32, no 2, 12-41 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The growing political and social role of the Russian Orthodox Church is one of the most challenging issues raised by recent developments in Russia. What do these developments represent? This article offers a critical analysis of the Russian Orthodox Church’s involvement in Russian politics. Offering a theological perspective, the paper shows that the Russian Orthodox Church fails to make proper use of its own theological tools when it chooses to act as a partner of the state, rather than as an independent political agent. One of the most devastating consequences of this choice is that the Church provides a symbolic legitimation of widespread and growing nationalism. The analysis is focused upon the social doctrine of the Church and the official publications on the human rights. The texts of these documents are then related to some alternative theological positions within the Russian Orthodox tradition. It is argued that this tradition possesses theological resources to enrich the political life with constructive contribution, while eschewing the rhetoric of cultural exclusivism and nationalism.

    Powerful rationality or rationality of power?: Reflections on Russian scepticism towards human rights.2012In: Power and Legitimacy - Challenges from Russia. / [ed] Per-Arne Bodin, Stefan Hedlund, Elena Namli, Oxon: Routledge, 2012, 1, 133-151 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the chapter is to analyse the scepticism towards human rights in contemporary Russia. It elaborates on the critique which views rationalism as embedded in the exercise of power by being strongly connected to Western liberalism as a dominant cultural and ideological tradition.

    Struggling with reason: Dostoevsky as moral theologian2009In: Studia Theologica, ISSN 0039-338X, E-ISSN 1502-7791, Vol. 63, no 2, 197-216 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the article is to suggest an interpretation of Dostoevsky's The Brothers Karamazov as an advanced theological critique of practical reason. The author of the article argues that Dostoevsky's critique of rationalism can be described as three different models of a struggle with reason. These three mordels are represented by the figures of the three brothers Karamazov and are analysed in relation to the question of the existence of God as it is dealt with in the novel.

    Abstract [sv]

    I artikeln behandlas Fjodor Dostojevskijs kritik av Europa i hans berömda "Vinteranteckningar om sommarintryck". Det föreslås en tolkning av novellen som särskiljer den fortfarande relevanta kritiken av rationalism och individualism från den destruktiva nationalistiska kritiken.

    Abstract [sv]

    Kapitlet ger en överblick över olika sätt att förstå relationen mellan förnuft och uppenbarelse. Samtidigt inkluderar texten ett eget förslag till hur begreppen kan förstås. Problematiken relateras till den samtida utvecklingen inom teologin samt till sådana politiska processer som globalisering och postkolonialism.

    Universal Rights versus Sharia?: Reflections on the Moral and Legal Dimensions of Human Rights Law and Sharia2013In: Religion and Human Rights: an international journal, ISSN 1871-031X, E-ISSN 1871-0328, Vol. 8, no 2, 139-161 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article develops a critique of the monopoly of liberal ideology in the field of human rights by considering how law, morality and politics are related to each other. The author argues that the constructive potential of international human rights law does not lie in its being understood and practiced as a positive law. On the contrary, to focus on human rights law as positive law is to conceal the political nature of human rights and to prevent effective development of its moral and political potential. Further, the author considers the case of Sharia law and argues that Sharia, for it to be implemented concretely in the social, political, and legal spheres, must be understood as a moral and religious ‘way’. These interpretations of human rights law and Sharia are used as the basis for a critique of the idea that human rights law and Sharia contradict each other.
