    Autonomy and Conflict: Ethnoterritoriality and Separatism in the South Caucasus - Cases in Georgia2002Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Providing minority populations with autonomy is gaining appreciation as a method of solving,managing, and even pre-empting ethnic conflict. However, in spite of the enthusiasm for autonomy solutions among academics and practitioners alike, there is reason to argue that the provision of autonomy for a minority may under certain circumstances increase rather than decrease the likelihood of conflict. In certain political conditions, autonomy strengthens the separate identity of a minority; it thereby increases its incentives to collective action against the state; and most of all its capacity to seek separation from the central state, through the state-like institutions that autonomy entails. The objective of this dissertation is to investigate whether territorial autonomy was a contributing factor to the violent ethnic conflicts that have erupted in the South Caucasus since the late 1980s. It presents a theoretical argument to explain which qualities of autonomy solutions increase the likelihood of conflict; and then seeks to outline possible rival explanations derived from the theoretical literature. The dissertation then examines the explanatory value of autonomy as compared to nine other possible causal factors in a study of nine minorities in the South Caucasus. Finding that autonomy has the highest explanatory value of any of the factors under study, it then moves on to study in depth the five minorities existing on the territory of the republic of Georgia. Three of them, Abkhazia, Ajaria, and South Ossetia, were autonomous, whereas two (the Armenians and Azeris in Southern Georgia) had no autonomous status. The dissertation shows how the institution of autonomy, by promoting an ethnic elite in control of state-like institutions, and by enhancing factors such as leadership, economic viability, and external support, played a crucial together with these factors in the escalation to conflict in Abkhazia and South Ossetia, whereas the absence of autonomy mitigated conflict in Javaheti’s Armenian and Kvemo Kartli’s Azeri populations.

    The Special Issue provides a deep-time interdisciplinary perspective on the Anthropocene and signals the importance of the Anthropocene concept in past, present, and future human-environmental relationships. This concluding article recognizes that various approaches - scientific, postmodern, catastrophist, and ecomarxist - can contribute to understanding the Anthropocene as a process and that contributions have been made by several disciplines, including Anthropology, Archaeology, Geography, History, and Politics. The critical importance of weaving together social science perspectives with those of the natural sciences is emphasized.

    Statistical Critiques of the Democratic Peace: Caveat Emptor2011In: American Journal of Political Science, ISSN 0092-5853, E-ISSN 1540-5907, Vol. 55, no 2, p. 247-262Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The “democratic peace”—the inference that democracies rarely fight each other—is one of the most important and empirically robust findings in international relations (IR). This article surveys the statistical challenges to the democratic peace and critically analyzes a prominent recent critique (Gartzke 2007). Gartzke's claim that capitalist dynamics explain away the democratic peace relies on results problematically driven by (1) the censoring from the sample of observations containing certain communist countries or occurring before 1966, (2) the inclusion of regional controls, and (3) a misspecification of temporal controls. Analysis of these issues contributes to broader methodological debates and reveals novel characteristics of the democratic peace. Gartzke and other critics have contributed valuably to the study of IR; however, the democratic peace remains one of the most robust empirical associations in IR.

    Förbättring och utveckling av kompetensförsörjning: En kvalitativ studie utförd vid Swedavia AB2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    An organizations quality management, including process improvement and -development requires continuous work. Quality- and process improvement does not only concern the individual employee but the entire organization. This bachelor thesis is about studying and improving a competence provision process at the organization Swedavia. The purpose is to suggest improvements that increase the efficiency and clarifies the competence prevision process.

    The thesis is based on the questions (1) How can the competence prevision be improved at Swedavia? And (2) How can the competence prevision be developed into a more adaptable process that fits into all business areas? In order to identify the cause of quality deficiency, three quality management tools have been used. To provide manageable improvement proposals, data collection has been focused on individual perspective such as interviews and surveys, as well as an operational perspective where quality audits have been reviewed. By analyzing the result with aid in information and material concerning competence prevision and process improvement, improvement proposals for the process have been developed and presented in an implementation plan.

    The study shows that (1) Swedavia’s competence provision can be improved by further developing the process method descriptions, responsibilities and the tools used. An improvement that benefits both the employees and the organization is to apply a clearer description of the overall competence provision process. The description should be based on guidelines for competence management by the Swedish Standard Institute. The result shows that depending on the area of business, the unconsciousness seems to vary. Improvement proposals for a more adaptable process (2) therefore include clearer guidelines, process tools and methods that is specific to the studied business area. In addition to suggested improvements, Swedavia should review what is considered to be of most importance and challenging in the process management, good communication and accessibility.

    An analysis of factors for success of community-based disaster risk reduction in Java, Indonesia2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Indonesia has a very high exposure and high vulnerability to natural disasters. Community-based disaster risk reduction can be life-saving, cost effective and reduce the gap between development and humanitarian aid. Community-based activities enable people to express their real needs and priorities, allowing problems and measures to be defined and implemented effectively. In Indonesia, CBDRR initiatives often come from NGOs, university-based researchers, or (local) governments. This study aims to identify how community-based disaster risk reduction programs implemented by institutions can be successful. The hypothesis is that the key for successful community-based disaster risk reduction is to include and empower the communities at stake. Key concepts in this research for community-based disaster risk reduction are culture and vulnerability. The Pressure and Release model of Wisner et al (2004) addresses the structural vulnerability which underlies disasters and shows that they are a product of social, political and economic environments.  The process framework integrating indigenous and scientific knowledge of Mercer et al (2010) enables the integration of scientific and local knowledge. Together, these models are used as the framework of analysis. Two case studies have been selected: volcanic eruptions of Mount Merapi and landslides in Banjarnegara. Findings have shown that there are programs focused on early warning systems and evacuations, relocation, and education in both areas. Application of the framework reveals that the models are effective tools to assess the success of community-based disaster risk reduction initiatives, as well as reasons for failure. Deriving from these findings, the factors that determine successful community-based disaster risk reduction are: community engagement through collaborating with community and stakeholders, identification of community goals and establishing trust; the identification of intrinsic and extrinsic vulnerability by addressing root causes, dynamic pressures, and unsafe conditions; identifying local knowledge and disaster mitigation strategies; and integrating these with scientific knowledge. The findings have also demonstrated that the hypothesis of this research - that the key for successful community-based disaster risk reduction programs implemented by institutions is to include and empower the communities at stake - is confirmed.

    Perpetuating Fear: Insecurity, Costly Signalling and the War in Central Bosnia, 19932016In: Journal of Genocide Research, ISSN 1462-3528, E-ISSN 1469-9494, Vol. 18, no 4, p. 463-484Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article deals with the relationship between the ethnic and societal security dilemmas on the one hand, and the way in which elites seek to prevent local-level cooperation through ‘costly signalling’, on the other. By analysing transcripts of tape-recorded conversations from the Security Council of the Republic of Croatia during the period 1992–95, the author shows that the Croatian elite based its initial strategy on the widespread fear that Croats would become dominated in an independent Bosnia and Herzegovina. It was during this phase that Franjo Tuđman and parts of the Bosnian Croat elite voiced the idea that parts of Bosnia and Herzegovina should—at least as a contingency—be joined with Croatia. However, the elite in Zagreb began backtracking in early 1992, when it became clear that the international community would not allow such a turn of events. It is also shown that fears of political domination began transforming into security concerns in the second half on 1992 due to the increasing tensions between the Bosniak and Croat armed forces. The final part of the analysis shows how local elites used nationalist symbols and the presence of foreign Mujahedin fighters in the vicinity of Zenica for the purpose of ethnic mobilization in the spring of 1993.

    Sex, Cash and Neuromodels of Desire2015In: BioSocieties, ISSN 1745-8552, E-ISSN 1745-8560, Vol. 10, no 4, p. 444-464Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the twenty-first century’s biological culture, pleasure and desire seem to be widely reconceptualized as processes of the brain. The neurosciences of sex and money are two fields of crucial interest in this cerebralization of desire. On the basis of a cross-reading of neuroimaging studies of sexuality and of neuroeconomics, I analyze the specific notions of desire/pleasure at work in the neuroimaging experiments. What is lost, and what is claimed to be found, in the neu- rosciences of desire for sex and cash? With particular attention to notions of rewards, I argue that transfers of metaphors from neuroeconomics naturalize economized notions of sexual desire. Moreover, I argue that neuroeconomics and the neuroscience of sex essentialize desire as the drive of our behavior, and that this, in turn, relates to the neurosciences’ re-invention of the social in the terms of a late capitalist society.

    The Experimental Neuro-Framing of Sexuality2013In: Graduate Journal of Social Science, ISSN 1572-3763, E-ISSN 1572-3763, Vol. 10, no 1, p. 124-151Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Brain scans of homosexuality, sexual desire and images of male and female brain function are becoming a common element of popular scientific news. How is sexuality re-described and re-produced when studied in brain scanners? This article explores the cultural production of sexuality in the growing field of neuroimaging research. In focus is the neural framing of sexuality, i.e. the process by which sexuality is understood as a matter of brain activity and visualizable with medical imaging technologies. The neuroframing of sexuality enables a reproduction of socio-cultural notions of difference, but also of neuroscience’s own notions of agency. The neural framing of sexuality re-mediates an idealized sexuality: ageless, neatly oriented, bodiless although haunted by the de-animated body, unfolding neatly as a sequential response of a psychological inside to an inanimate outside, and essentialized as independent from its feelers and objects.
