    An investigation of rural migrants' happiness status in Changsha city: A trial of social urban planning in China's second-tier cities2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 40 credits / 60 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    China has among the world’s fastest growing urban region and faced enormous environmental and social challenges that requires a forward thinking of urban planning, which integrates environmental sustainability and social equity into urban resilience. In China, national and provincial urban policies have long focused on economic and industrial developments, whereas social welfare was not account for urban planning until very recently. After decades of rapid socioeconomic development, China has now entered an urbanization stage at which social development becomes as urgent as economic and environmental transformation. Rural migrant as a lower social group is a product of China’s rigorous rural-urban household registration (Hukou) that has caused plenty of social tragedies. Although governmental authorities have vowed to elevate rural migrants’ social status, as a heterogeneous social group, rural migrants received very little research attention by far. To examine rural migrants’ demographic information and their social status, this research employs happiness as a theme to carry out a questionnaire survey. In total, 1,267 responses were collected at bus and train stations in Changsha, a second-tier city located in the middle of China. According to the survey, rural migrants’ happiness status is in close relation with some demographic characteristics such as gender, ethnicity and education. In general, men are unhappier than women; the ethnic minorities are unhappier than the ethnic majority-Han; and the highly educated are unhappier than those with lower educational attainment. By performing a stepwise regression, statistics uncover that rural migrants’ happiness status in Changsha is positively associated with a stable income, a job with insurance and a well sustained family tie. Based on the study results, I propose three suggestions for social urban planning in China’s second-tier cities: (1) to set up a commercial district that embraces diverse ethnic groups, where the minor ethnic rural migrants can work and live with their own cultures. (2) To gather rural migrants by industry and establish labour unions that can represent for rural migrants’ interests. (3) To maintain the discriminated Hukou system, but define Hukou identity based on rural migrants’ taxation conditions.

    ...And Reconcile Us With Evil: A Critical Investigation of the Imagery of Good and Evil in Western Religion, Film and Politics2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    With an eye on the current social and political situation in Europe, and with regards to the so-termed refugee crisis, this study aims to map the discourse on assumed good and evil shared among Western cultures, as represented by Sweden, Germany and the United States. 

    The thesis takes its point of departure from essayistic reflections of the philosophical tradition and theological and religious analytical positions respectively. These are then followed by two investigative main chapters, designed along the lines of Norman Fairclough’s approach to critical discourse analysis (CDA).

    The first of these chapters studies the narratives of good and evil employed in the mainstream cinema of the past ten years in the mentioned countries.

    The second analysis is made up of three case studies, in turn looking at similar narratives in the campaigns of the two main competitors in the 2016 presidential race, a German protest movement against free trade agreements, and the everyday political communication of Swedish Facebook users. In a final chapter, findings from all four preceding chapters are brought together in an attempt to sketch an image of the congruences and discrepancies of narratives on good and evil in the overall discursive field.

    The thesis finds that the discursive field shared by the three investigated societies is largely homogenous, with certain imagery permeating all analysed orders of discourse. Many of the reoccurring images are however likely rooted in the human psyche and therefore less dependent on discourse practice. Furthermore, certain principles are agreed upon in theory while not reproduced in social practice. Themes assigned to either good or evil often seem to take on secondary functions next to assumed fixed identities of in- and out-groups. 

    Being a qualitative study, this thesis aims at giving an overview and delivering a base for further investigations rather than providing definitive answers.

    Policy, agency and scale in local adaptation to socio-environmental change in the Panchkhal Valley, Nepal2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This case study explores climate change coping and adaptation strategies in an agriculture- dependent community in the Panchkhal Valley in Nepal that suffered from five years of drought between 2004 and 2009. Based on fieldwork and interviews in Panchkhal 2011–2012, it explores how drought, combined with an ongoing process of agricultural commercialization and intensification, lead to a situation of ‘double exposure’ for Panchkhal farmers. As a consequence, current development policies based on the intensification and commercialization of agriculture may both support and undermine climate change adaptation in important ways. For instance, access to markets and a monetary income facilitated coping and adaptation, while dependence on agrochemicals led to increased vulnerability and environmental deterioration at the local level. Furthermore, none of the reported coping and adaptation strategies were able to provide the agricultural system in Panchkhal with sufficient amounts of water during the drought. While community organizations and NGOs were reported to play important roles in facilitating adaptation and mediating support at the time of the drought, government support was regarded to be insufficient. Coping and adaptation projects were often launched by local level actors, but these projects were dependent on resources from other administrative scales for their realization. 'Scale brokers', organizations or individuals that are able to mobilize support from other scales, hence appear to be a critical part for realizing adaptation projects.

    De osynliga minoriteterna: En studie om minoritetsrättigheter i svensk politik mellan år 1970 och 20102014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay examines the historical development of group rights for cultural minorities in Sweden between the years 1970 and 2010. The purpose of the study is to analyze the development of political measures taken at government level for different minority groups, foremost explaining the division that have arisen between measures aimed at the five national minorities, the Sámi, the Swedish Finns, the Roma, the Jews and the Tornedalians, and measures directed at other ethnic groups.

    My conclusions are that the division in Swedish public policy between one the one hand national minorities, and on the other hand immigrant groups, is in no way self-evident. The division has arisen from an international standard on how democratic states, such as Sweden, should treat their cultural minorities. Further, this division has had an immense impact in shaping public policy as well as determining the type of group rights introduced for minority groups in Sweden.

    A difference has also been found in how the minorities are perceived by state actors. Immigrant groups are currently perceived as less entitled to group rights due to their short presence in Sweden, whereas national minorities are seen as more entitled to group rights due to their long historic presence in the country. However, as this essay shows, this view has not always been the prevailing view in Swedish politics in the 1970s and the 1980s, a time when national minorities had little or no say in matters concerning minority rights.

    Re: Mindings: Co-Constituting Indigenous, Academic, Artistic Knowledges2014Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    RE: Mindings brings together indigenous scholars, artists and activists, and indigenous allies to speak of whose positions, contexts and experiences it is that inform the construction of knowledges, histories and sciences. In short, whose experience counts? The purpose of RE:Mindings is to encourage its authors and readers to investigate what it means to resist exploitation of humans, non-humans and nature within the frames of modern nation states. Examples are provided from communities within or across the borders of existing nation states: Sámi and Saepmie/Sábme/Sápmi in Fenno-Scandinavia; Aboriginal-Martu in Australia; Ainu people in Japan, Dakota-Native Americans in USA and Mapuche in Chile. This publication originates from the supradisciplinary symposium RE: Mindings; Co-Constituting Indigenous/Academic/Artistic Knowledges and Understandings of Land-, Water-, Body-, and Lab-scapes, held at Uppsala University, 10-12 October 2012.

    The RE:Mindings publication has been funded through research projects financed by the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet) and Formas - the Swedish Research Council for Environment, Agricultural Sciences and Spatial Planning.

    Integration for peace: integration and reconciliation among diasporas2009Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Many scholars argue that hostland social integration will encourage moderate political attitudes among diasporas. On the other hand, structural integration is thought to affect the opportunity structure of diasporas, but not their political attitudes. In this paper we offer an alternative explanation for the relationship between integration and diaspora attitudes. Our argument, based on findings in social psychology and social work, is that structural integration empowers diasporas to process and contextualize war-related experiences and make sense of daily life, and through the mechanism of a higher sense of coherence, enables them to envision a common future with other groups both in the host and homeland. We find support for our claims in a unique set of survey data collected amoung four diaspora populations in Sweden: structural integration encourages reconciliatory attitudes among diasporas, while social integration does not. Through their transnational engagement, structural integration of diasporas has the potential to encourage lasting peace in their homelands.

    Psychosocial Work Environment in the Church of Sweden. An Explorative Study2007In: European Congress of Work and Organizational Psychology: Sustainable Work: Promoting Human and Organizational Vitality, 2007, 1172- p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous research about work environment aspects of the Church has either focused on leadership or on the character of conflicts in the organization. This study is focused on the psychosocial environment factors in the Church. Data include both documents from the Swedish Labor Inspection and interviews with representatives from different churches. Data was compared with regard to factors assumed to be relevant for the psychosocial work environment in the organization. The result indicated unsatisfactory work conditions such as unclear management, attitudes too focused on “taking care of people,” employees with their own goals, great expectations (external, from the society and internal, from the Church itself) on good work conditions. Another result was stressful work conditions caused by, i.e., the employees’ difficulties to draw a line between their work and private lives. It was also evident that it was more common in the Church of Sweden not to handle the problems.

    Church Conflicts - The Psychosocial Work Environment of the Parishes.2000In: American Conference of Sociology and Religion, Washington DC, 2000, 2000Conference paper (Other scientific)
    Abstract [en]

    The Church of Sweden faces major changes in the years to come. It will be disestablished January 1, 2000. There are many signs of the Church being one of the worst employers when you consider the psychosocial work environment. There are numerous conflicts in the parishes and the reasons suggested are also numerous: poor leadership; theological disputes; the expectations of a good working life in a Christian setting and a denial of problems; The Christian belief itself.

    Diocesan officers, and officers of the Swedish labor inspectorate have been interviewed on their experiences on church conflicts, the causes, patterns and possible ways of resolving them. Approx. 200 Inspection Documents from the Swedish labor inspectorate have been explored. The results suggest that there be no one single explanation to the situation. Several factors, present at the same time, form the reasons for the situation; The leadership, the distribution of responsibilities in the parish, the lack objectives for the Parish, the expectations for a problem free working life. These and other factors vary in correlation.

    Armed Conflict and Peace Agreements2006In: Journal of Peace Research, ISSN 0022-3433, E-ISSN 1460-3578, Vol. 43, no 5, 617-631 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In 2005, there were 31 ongoing conflicts, down by 1 from 2004. Notable for 2005 as well as for the previous year is that, while there were no major fluctuations in the number of conflicts, there were numerous changes when it comes to the conflicts listed. While ten of the conflicts recorded for 2004 were no longer active in 2005, nine conflicts restarted, four with action taken by new rebel groups and five by previously recorded actors. A total of 231 armed conflicts have been recorded since the end of World War II and 121 after the end of the Cold War. In one-third of the conflicts recorded after the Cold War, the conflicting parties have concluded peace agreements, solving, regulating, or deciding the incompatibility. Of the 144 accords, 70% were signed in conflicts over government; many of them were part of a peace process containing more than one agreement. In conflicts over government, the most common provision for resolving the incompatibility was the holding of elections. In conflicts over territory, the agreements often established local governance over the disputed territory.

    Abstract [en]

    In 2008, the number of active armed conflicts was 36, up by one from 2007. Over the past few years, the number of active conflicts has not seen any drastic changes from one year to the next. However, the number of armed conflicts has increased by nearly one-quarter since 2003, which was the year with the lowest number of active armed conflicts since the 1970s. While the number of conflicts continued to increase, the number of wars (i.e. conflicts with over 1,000 battle-related deaths) remained at a very low level, with only five recorded for 2008. Four conflicts listed in 2007 were no longer active in 2008, but during the year, two conflicts were restarted by previously recorded actors (in Burundi and in Georgia). Furthermore, three new conflicts erupted, one of which was fought between states (Djibouti-Eritrea). Thus, the record-long four-year interlude 2004-07 with no interstate conflict was broken.

    Abstract [en]

    In 2006, 32 armed conflicts were active, a figure that has remained constant for three years. The decline in armed conflict observed through most of the post-Cold War period has ceased, at least temporarily. Many of the conflicts active in 2006 have a long history which may have made them more entrenched and thus more difficult to solve. In fact, in contrast to the situation in the early 1990s, no new conflicts have erupted in the last two years. No interstate conflicts were active in 2006, but five of the intrastate conflicts were internationalized. While four of the conflicts recorded for 2005 were no longer active in 2006, four conflicts restarted, two with actions taken by new rebel groups and two by previously recorded actors.

    Purposes and criteria in network governance evaluation: How far does standard evaluation vocabulary takes us?2012In: Evaluation, ISSN 1356-3890, E-ISSN 1461-7153, Vol. 18, no 1, 25-44 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Evaluation and network governance are both among the top-10 trendy concepts in public policy. But how are they related? In the present article, we ask how public sector interventions guided by a network governance doctrine are to be evaluated. If evaluation means systematic judgment of organization, content, administration, outputs and effects in public policy, then evaluators need concepts and analytical tools to assess these features and communicate their analyses. In the literature, interest in network modes of governance often goes together with a call for a renewed vocabulary for evaluation and policy analysis. In the article, we do not take this to be a fact. Instead we turn it into a question: How relevant and productive are established concepts and tools of evaluation theory for evaluating network governance? More specifically, we address the issues of purposes and merit criteria in evaluation of interventions fashioned according to the network governance doctrine. Though it takes some elaboration, our overall conclusion is that at least some standard evaluation concepts and approaches are still productive in delineating, analysing and prescribing how network governance can be evaluated. There are crucial accountability issues to raise, the goal-achievement criterion is not irrelevant and the meaning of stakeholder evaluation is elucidated when confronted with the ideas of the network governance doctrine.
