    Civil society and peace - a holy relationship?: A case study on the role of faith-based organizations in peacebuilding and their promotion of human rights in Colombia.2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This master thesis deals with civil society peacebuilding and human rights, aiming to explore the relationship between these perspectives. In more detail, the peacebuilding functions of the Colombian faith-based network of DiPaz are examined in a context where the Government of Colombia and the FARC guerilla have signed a peace agreement and officially entered a postconflict phase, and to realize the examination the comprehensive framework of Thania Paffenholz and Christoph Spurk (2010) is used. Moreover, a human rights perspective on the functions is applied in order to examine the possibilities of using the agendas of peacebuilding and human rights simultaneously with that purpose of working towards a sustainable peace in Colombia. The conclusion is that the framework is useful when examining the relationship between civil society and peacebuilding, and that the peacebuilding functions of DiPaz are of relevance. Finally, a human rights agenda is frequently used simultaneously by DiPaz to promote the respect of human rights and sustainable peace.

    Unscripted sexual practices: Sexual health of men having sex with men after prostate cancer treatment2022Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of the study was to describe the sexual health of men having sex with men after prostate cancer treatment.

    Methods: A snowball sampling was conducted via clinicians and gatekeepers to the community. After consenting to participate, a semi-structured interview was conducted based on a questionnaire related to symptoms and issues and the help asked for and received. The interviews were approximately one hour and took place via digital platforms. The interviews were transcribed verbatim and then analyzed using content analysis. The following themes emerged during the analysis: A predominant heteronormative care, A situation of suffering and possibilities, A window of peer support system emerged.

    Results: The men described how their sexuality had been severely affected by their treatments. Bodily changes with decreased penis size, difficulties maintaining an erection, and less pleasure from anal sex. However, they also described the benefit of being men who had sex with men. They described being accustomed to exploring new ways of expressing and exploring their sexualities due to a lack of sexual scripts. The prostate cancer treatment had given them a new reason to explore new sexualities and sexual practices. In contacts with urology and oncology departments, both physicians and nurses, the men described a heteronormative environment. Albeit same-sex partners could be asked for in intake notes, no one reflected on what non-penovaginal sexuality could look like. Therefore, getting the appropriate care for the men after prostate cancer treatment did not involve erectile dysfunction medications was challenging. Instead, their friends and ability to find alternative ways to valid information became important.

    Conclusion: The result shows that predominantly heteronormative care exists for men who have sex with men. The new insight of the treatment is regarded as a situation of suffering and new possibilities. To conclude, men who have sex with men describe care that was well-meaning but heteronormative. The men described being men having sex with men as something that had made them explore unscripted sexual practices and had given them a broader sexual repertoire that was helpful for their sexual health. Furthermore, the support they received emerged from a peer support system in their private life.

    How Close is Close Enough?: A Spatial Analysis Exploring the Impacts of UN Peacekeeping on the Spread of Armed Conflicts2024Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    United Nations (UN) peacekeeping operations (PKOs), despite varied success outcomes, have been instrumental in mitigating conflict and promoting stability. Initially designed to support ceasefires and facilitate post-conflict activities, their role has evolved significantly since the end of the Cold War. Nowadays, peacekeepers are deployed in active conflict zones, raising critical questions about the effectiveness of their interventions. Current literature extensively analyzes the general impact of peacekeeping on conflict duration, intensity, and civilian protection. However, the local and subnational impacts of peacekeeping remain contested. Most research has focused on mission-level effects, often overlooking the spatial dynamics of conflict and the localized impacts of peacekeeping efforts. This study addresses the gap in understanding the spatial effects of peacekeeping by providing an in-depth analysis of peacekeeping deployments and their impact on the spread of armed conflicts. Utilizing Geographic Information System (GIS) data at a sub-national level, this research examines how the proximity of peacekeeping forces to conflict zones influences the geographical spread of armed conflict. Employing Multinomial Logistic Regression (MLR) models with data from the UCDP Georeferenced Event Dataset (GED) 23.1 and the Geocoded Peacekeeping Operation (GEO-PKO) 2.2 dataset, the study explores interactions between peacekeeping deployments, local infrastructure, and conflict dynamics. The study tests two hypotheses: 1) Closer proximity to peacekeeping bases is associated with a greater likelihood of a reduction in conflict fatalities, and 2) The fatality-reduction effect of peacekeeping deployments varies across local geographical conditions. By leveraging PRIO Grid cells as the unit of analysis, this research contributes to the literature, highlighting the importance of local geographical features and infrastructure. The findings inform more effective, context-specific peacekeeping strategies and interventions.

    Peacebuilding Actors And Gender Equality: a Positive Relationship?: Analysing the role of peacebuilding actors in challenging power structures and defeating gender inequality in Liberia and Rwanda2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The inclusion of gender equality in the guiding principles of peacebuilding operations led by the United Nations raises questions of effectivity. Indeed, while the commitment of the international community to gender equality is well defined and the importance of gender equality for durable peace has been widely demonstrated, there is no consistent research on the effects of the interventions of peacebuilding actors on dimensions of gender equality. The question leading this paper is “what is the effect of peacebuilding actors’ interventions on gender equality?” and this paper particularly seeks to research whether the influence of peacebuilding actors on power structures, that define unjust gendered relations of power, could improve gender equality overall. The theoretical underpinning of this paper identifies women’s political empowerment as a change in power structures with possible positive consequences. The theory is tested in a qualitative way with a comparison between case studies and through the method of Structured Focused Comparison. The results show partial support for the hypothesis. Indeed, the empirical assessment of Liberia and Rwanda seems to point to an increase in the international support of local women’s organisation as a successful strategy to challenge power structures and, consequently, gender inequality.

    Protection or Denunciation: A study on Civilian Agency during the War in Kosovo2023Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Why do some communities experience more violence against civilians than others? This study argues that civilian communities embracing relationships that bridge salient group divides and norms of non-violence, will commit to actions of protection across those divides, which will in turn limit possibilities for armed actors to commit violence against civilians. On the other hand, communities that do not embrace bridging relationships and instead promote more violent norms, will commit to denunciation of other civilians during war. This will in turn create more opportunities for armed actors to commit violence against civilians. Through interview-based field research I test this theory on two communities in Kosovo. I compare the town of Prizren, largely spared from violence against civilians during the war of 1998-1999, to the town of Gjakova, which experienced higher levels of violence against civilians. The results show support for the theoretical argument. However, I cannot fully account for alternative explanations to the difference in violence. Research on civilian agency during the Kosovo war has been severely lacking, an empirical gap which I aim to partly fill through this research.

    The Use of Cash and Voucher Assistance for Sustainable Livelihoods in Protracted Crises: Silver Bullet or Double-Edged Sword?: A Case Study of Northeast Syria2022Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis sheds some light on how cash and voucher assistance (CVA) can promote sustainable livelihood outcomes in protracted crisis settings, analyzing the case study of Northeast Syria. It aims to contribute to the design of CVA programming in Syria and similar contexts in a way that fosters sustainable livelihoods and advances self-sufficiency among affected populations. The two core concepts – CVA and livelihoods – are first conceptualized separately, followed by an extensive literature review, which provides an empirical perspective and identifies some channels through which CVA can promote sustainable livelihoods. Eight semi-structured interviews, representing the views of a donor agency, INGOs, the humanitarian coordination architecture, and a CVA network of practitioners, then provide in-depth insights into Northeast Syria specifically. While this thesis identifies four CVA instruments that are implemented by humanitarian organizations to promote livelihoods in Northeast Syria, it equally finds that the context is characterized by structural barriers which cannot be addressed by humanitarian CVA alone. To tackle structural barriers and account for the paradigm shift the Syrian crisis is undergoing, the international community needs to adjust its funding approach in a way that promotes longer-term thinking and sustainable livelihoods both in Syria and other protracted crisis settings.

    Control and Uncertainty in the Delegation of War: A Principal-Agent Explanation of Interrebel Relations2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    External support has previously been found to increase both interrebel alliances and interrebel conflict. This thesis uses a modified principal-agent theory to bring these findings together in a common theoretical framework, arguing that external support leads to interrebel alliances when the sponsor’s leverage is high, and to interrebel warfare when the sponsor’s leverage is low. Using data on multiparty conflicts from 1975-2010, it aims to answer why external state support has increased interrebel warfare in some cases and interrebel alliances in other. It finds that the effect of external support isn’t unidirectional on interrebel alliances or interrebel warfare. This thesis finds that when controlling for forms of support that allows a sponsor to monitor the rebel group, external support is positively correlated with interrebel warfare and negatively with interrebel alliances. It also finds that the monitoring capacity of the sponsor decreases interrebel warfare, whilst the effects on interrebel alliances are inconsistent. Further, strong rebel groups, groups active in areas of drug cultivation and groups that share ideational ties with other groups in the same conflict, are found to be more likely to engage in interrebel warfare, and less likely to engage in interrebel alliances.

    Universal Jurisdiction and the Pursuit of Justice for Victims and Survivors of Genocide: A Social Network Analysis of OECD States and International Norm Diffusion2020Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Universal Jurisdiction (UJ) emerged as a norm in international post-conflict justice after the Nuremberg Trials and is based on the principle that the nature of certain crimes is of greater importance than the nationality of the perpetrator, the location of the crime or any direct connection to the prosecuting state. This paper discusses the spread of UJ, which has been wide-ranging and consistent since the 1950s, and seeks answers to the question – why do some states adopt universal jurisdiction legislation while others do not?

    Through the novel use of Social Network Analysis (SNA) and application of diffusion theory (specifically emulation), the study tests the hypothesis that liberalist network ties influence a state’s willingness to adopt UJ legislation. This bivariate relationship is tested with a medium-n population of OECD states and the empirical results of the SNA reveal strong support for the hypothesis, findings that are determined to be statistically significant by the Pearson’s Chi-Square test. This study embodies an innovative methodological and theoretical approach to an important international post-conflict justice issue, and draws attention to the obstacles that often stand between victims and survivors of genocide and their day in court. 

    N.B The design of the Social Network Analysis maps and details in some tables mean that this paper is most optimally viewed in colour.

    The Electoral Commitment Problem: A quantitative assessment of the impact of constitutional features on post-election conflict2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Conflict immediately following elections is a phenomenon rarely studies in its own light. The timing, motivation, and dynamics of post-election conflict is often verydifferent to that in other periods of the electoral cycle. This study seeks to identifyhow certain constitutional features influence the likelihood of post-electionconflict. Based on an adaptation of the ‘credible commitment problem’, I argue thatby reducing the stakes of elections through careful constitutional design, politicalactors can overcome the deep mistrust and uncertainty associated with electoralperiods. The threat of post-election conflict can therefore be mitigated bytempering the rewards for ‘winners’, and consequently softening the blow for‘losers’. By creating a global post-election conflict dataset of national electionsbetween 1989-2012, a series of binary logistic regressions show that proportionalelectoral systems decrease the likelihood of post-election riots and protests, whilstgreater decentralisation and the direct-election of a head of state increase thelikelihood of post-election violence.

    Authenticity as a compromise: a critical discourse analysis of S\’a;mi tourism websites2019In: Journal of Heritage Tourism, Vol. 14, no 3, p. 249-262Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Authenticity is considered a very important means to attract tourists. Different enterprises and destinations compete for visitors and authenticity is an important factor for visitors’ travel decisions. Within the context of indigenous and cultural tourism, several studies have criticized the way in which indigenous and local populations are portrayed in order to attract tourists, since they often involve colonial images and descriptions that are no longer corresponding to the contemporary situation. This study presents an alternative perspective on the discussion on tourism marketing in relation to authenticity. Through critical discourse analysis and retroduction, this study has analysed the websites of Sámi tourism companies from Sweden. The discussion put forward in this study is not a generalizing picture of how the Sámi peoples choose to market themselves, but it problematizes how these particular enterprises relate to issues of authenticity in the representation of cultural heritage. This paper also presents a new approach to authenticity seen as a compromise. The results of this study present one side of a multifaceted discussion on the struggle between different discourses on representations and authenticity that are often the main channel to reach and attract potential visitors.

    Nostalgia in Senior Tourism2022In: Encyclopedia of Tourism Management and Marketing, Edward Elgar Publishing, 2022, p. 359-361Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Nostalgia is an important aspect of tourism both as a push as well as a pull factor for visitors around the world. Nostalgia is often described as a ‘longing for the past’ and can be influenced by past experience and age (Cho, Joo and Chi, 2019, p. 97). Nostalgia is a common theme in tourism, especially as a motivator for certain segments. For instance, nostalgia is prevalent as a travel catalyst in sport tourism (Cho et al., 2019) and as a strong motivator for older and younger segments of seniors (Cleaver et al., 1999; Daniels et al., 2019; Patterson, 2006). Nostalgia was identified 40 years ago as an important motivator for senior tourists’ travel (Guinn, 1980), yet it has been argued that still it is not common in research (Otoo and Kim, 2020).

    Paradigm2022In: Encyclopedia of Tourism Management and Marketing, Edward Elgar Publishing, 2022, p. 435-437Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    A paradigm is usually defined as an established way of doing things. From a scientific point of view, a paradigm is the framework that guides the methodological choices of a researcher, such as decisions regarding the view on reality, the production of knowledge as well as values. From a more practical point of view, a paradigm dictates a certain way of managing tourism growth and visitor flows, among other things. Paradigms can have different approaches to both research and management, from approaches that are more quantitative in nature and based on positivist philosophy, to more qualitative and subjective approaches such as constructionism and postmodernism. Paradigms can be seen as a limitation to research, but instead should be seen as a map. Both research and practice can benefit from a set of principles that ensure that the decisions taken are coherent.

    Reflections on the hegemonic exclusion of critical realism from academic settings: alone in a room full of people2018In: Journal of Critical Realism, Vol. 17, no 4, p. 374-389Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, I discuss my personal experience of the issues that can arise when adopting critical realism in academic contexts dominated by irrealist (positivist, phenomenological and post-structuralist) methodological approaches. I draw inspiration for my analysis from the concept of Gramscian hegemony and the concept of ‘authenticity’. These concepts are related because hegemonic processes prevent individuals from freely expressing themselves. In my case, academic hegemony has resulted in social pressure to sacrifice my authentic critical realist self in order to achieve academic success. I also discuss groupthink dynamics, suggesting that they are a mechanism by which hegemony–and denial of individual authenticity–can be achieved. This paper is meant to be a theoretical and reflexive discussion, which could be the starting point for empirical studies investigating the situation of a critical realist in a hegemonic academic context.

    Sami tourism in marketing material: a multimodal discourse analysis2022In: Acta Borealia, Vol. 39, no 2, p. 115-137Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The study of tourism marketing communication is an important aspect that contributes to the understanding of how destinations and locals are portrayed. Through the so-called circle of representation, images can spread from tourism marketing to other media, such as tourism photography. Marketing material in the form of 118 brochures, 3000 Instagram posts and a guidebook portraying the Sami population mostly in Swedish Lapland, but also in Finnish Lapland as well as Finnmark, Norway, have been collected and analyzed. The focus is on pictorial and textual elements and eight previously conceptualized themes have been used to guide the analysis. The focus was on the portrayal of the Sami Indigenous population. The materials were collected through a direct qualitative content analysis and analyzed through a multimodal discourse analysis. The results show that there is still a tendency to portray the Sami based on exoticism. This can spread to different media channels, but there are also discrepancies that hint at a gradual change in how Indigenous populations such as the Sami are presented. The results of this study show the potential for the use of social media channels such as Instagram for Indigenous entrepreneurs and destination management organizations to educate, attract and entice potential visitors.

    Abstract [en]

    This book examines science fiction’s theoretical and ontological backgrounds and how science fiction applies to the future of tourism. It recreates and invents the future of tourism in a creative and disruptive manner, reconceptualising tourism through alternative and quantum leap thinking that go beyond the normative or accepted view of tourism. The chapters, focusing on areas such as disruption, sustainability and technology, draw readers into the unknown future of tourism – a future that may be disruptive, dystopian or utopian. The book brings a new theoretical paradigm to the study of tourism in a post COVID-19 world and can be used to explore, frame and even form the future of tourism. It will capture the imagination and inspire readers to address tourism’s challenges of tomorrow.

    Values, emancipation, and the role of knowledge in tourism education. A critical realist perspective2022In: Journal of Teaching in Travel & Tourism, Vol. 22, no 1, p. 36-49Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Values are important in education and their role in university studies is central in tourism teaching as well. How values are communicated to students is an important aspect of our axiological approach. In order to promote a fruitful approach to values in the students, this conceptual paper discusses the role of theoretical knowledge in achieving empowerment for the students based on the tenets of critical realism and on Gramsci’s philosophy. As students acquire disciplinary theoretical knowledge, they also develop the tools to make ethical evaluations. Knowledge is meant as the best possible understanding that we have of the world at the moment and it is always possible to achieve a better explanation of a phenomenon. Through an approach based on theoretical knowledge integrated with other creative ways to teach, the students can develop an ethical sensitivity and a flexible set of skills for both the workplace and academia.

    Towards Conflict De-escalation: The Effect of Compliance Provisions in Ceasefires2023Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to answer the question Why do some ceasefires de-escalate conflict better than others? By applying a theory-driven empirical comparative approach, a theoretical argument focused on compliance provisions is presented. The argument holds that more comprehensive compliance provisions in ceasefire agreements are more likely to de-escalate conflict than limited ones. The causal mechanism argues that more comprehensive compliance provisions will increase transparency and raise costs for non-compliance. This will result in an increase of trust between conflict parties, leading to greater de-escalation. The thesis studies two ceasefires, one in Colombia from 2017, and one in Nicaragua from 1990. Through a structured focused comparison, the study finds that the Nicaraguan ceasefire, which has more comprehensive compliance provisions, de-escalated violence more compared to the Colombian case, which has limited compliance provisions. Therefore, the study finds support for the hypothesis with the caveat that compliance provisions do not appear to influence agreement resilience for long-term goals in the agreements.

    Morals: motivators or obstacles for conflict brutality?: A qualitative analysis of rebel groups in the intrastate conflict of the Syrian Arab Republic2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is a comparative, empirically driven, small-n, comparative study that attempts to answer the question: Does morally motivated violence increase the level of conflict brutality?

    The study argues that higher levels of moral violence will lead to an increase in conflict brutality due to psychological processes that limit restraint. Two rebel groups are studied, the Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra li al-Sham in the context of the intrastate conflict in the Syrian Arab Republic. Motivations of violence are measured through an idea analysis and are operationalized in both instrumental and moral motivations. The Islamic State shows higher rates of conflict brutality and are more morally motivated in their acts of violence than Jabhat al-Nusra, who show more instrumental objectives and are not as brutal. The study concludes that there is a relation between morally motivated violence and conflict brutality and urges future research to further establish this relation.

    Sold for Sex because of War: Trafficking of women and girls for the purpose of Sexual Exploitation during conflict and in post-conflict context in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Sierra Leone2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The trade in human beings, or Trafficking in Persons (TiP) is global and affecting every country. In the last years, increasing attention has been paid to TiP for the purpose of sexual exploitation. This led to a growing need to tackle this phenomenon. Only recently, the relationship between TiP and armed conflict has been acknowledged but remains under-studied. Cameron and Newman (2008) have outlined a framework in which structural factors linked to proximate factors could have explanatory value on the relationship between armed conflict and TiP. This thesis analyzes two cases of armed conflict, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Sierra Leone, attempting to explain the increase in TiP of women and girls for the purpose of sexual exploitation by applying this theoretical framework. In this qualitative research a comparative method is used in applying the framework to two case studies, aiming to identify the explanatory value of Cameron and Newman’s (2008) framework. It is found that the general explanatory value of the framework is high and the proximate factors can be classified as: a fully explanatory proximate factor, case dependent proximate factors, and conflict-phase proximate factors. In addition, this thesis is identifying some elements that could influence TiP of women and girls for the purpose of sexual exploitation during conflict and post-conflict that could be of added value to this framework, namely: the implementation of government strategies, corruption of non-government officials, economic deterioration as a consequence of migration, and involvement of peacekeepers and members of the international community in TiP of women and girls for the purpose of sexual exploitation.

    HOW IDEOLOGY AFFECTS GOVERNMENTS’ BEHAVIOUR: A STUDY ON WELL-ESTABLISHED ASSUMPTIONS2020Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation investigates the influence that the ideology of a states has in determining its relations with its peers. The study will be performed using a classic approach to international relations, with a focus on the dichotomy rivalry – non-rivalry, and a more modern method, classifying the variable in 5 classes. I will show that ideology is important when countries engage in friendly relations, while there is no evidence this covariation is present also regarding rivalries. The findings also suggest that countries following different ideologies tend to act differently, with states with stronger ideas being less pragmatical. I will also find support for part of the liberal theory, with democracies being particularly peaceful with each other, and the realist theory, with countries being close and economically powerful being more likely to engage in extreme relations. Finally, I will use random forests to make predictions, showing my model is capable of being extremely accurate in predicting relations between states.

    The Hybridization of Dichotomies: The Orwellian reality of modern conflicts where war is peace, and words are weapons2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Hybrid Warfare and Information Operations are not new concepts. However, what could be seen as new is the framing of conflicts in a “negative peace” narrative. As identified in the thesis, negative peace has developed into a means to circumvent the categorization of conflicts as war and hence bypass the legal boundaries of war and limit international intervention. This thesis aims to test whether this view of negative peace can be supported by making a StructuredFocused Comparison between the means of war employed by Russia in the conflict in Georgia and the conflict in Ukraine. First, the thesis outlines a broad understanding of the concept and presents the theory of negative peace. The outline is followed by a conceptual typology of the categorization of a conflict in terms of either “War” or “Negative Peace”, depending on the degree of presence of “Hybrid warfare” and “Information operations”. Finally, this view on the relationship was tested, and in our case, the findings show support. This thesis was initially submitted in January 2021 before the renewed conflict and invasion of Ukraine by the Russian state. The revisions made to the thesis focus on clarifying and furthering the explanations that the examiners deemed necessary without addressing the current situation. Thus the focus of the thesis is kept on the originally established time frame, and the new conditions won't have an altering effect on the previously established analysis, beyond the final commentary on the further renewed relevance of research in the topic at hand.

    Prostitution/ Sex work in Sweden and Germany: A Study of Former Research2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis deals with part of the current research about prostitution/ sex work in Sweden and Germany. While prostitution/ sex work is partly criminalized in Sweden, the German law is currently designed to improve the legal situation of prostitutes/ sex worker. Both countries offer a different range of research on the topic with Sweden having several scholars who focused their research on the field compared to rather little research in Germany. Assistant Professor at the Social Work Department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Lara Gerassi, argues that besides the general lack of research on the field of prostitution/ sex work, the research that exists focuses more on the macro level perspectives and leaves the micro level with not a lot of research. Existing research, she claims, then shows little empirical support. The thesis will conclude that there is indeed too little research in both countries, especially within the micro level perspective and that the field needs an increased amount of research to help understand the field better and to be able to adapt the laws and regulations according to the needs.

    Identity and Islamist Radicalisation: The Foreign Fighters of Europe2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The current flow of foreign fighters to the conflict in Syria and Iraq is unprecedented in recent times, with numbers now exceeding those who travelled to fight in Afghanistan in the 1980’s. Some estimates suggest that one fifth of the 30,000 recruits are from Europe, worse still, that the majority are fighting with the so-called Islamic State. The scale of this trend demands a deeper understanding of violent Islamist radicalisation in Europe which goes beyond the common and limited explanations of economics or religion. Utilising recent data on the number of foreign fighters travelling from each European country, this study considers how restrictive government legislation instigates a perceived incompatibility between the European and religious identities held by young second and third generation Muslims in Europe. Compounded with feelings of non-belonging which are exacerbated by societal discrimination, these individuals become particularly vulnerable to extremist narratives. As the first cross-national quantitative analysis of European foreign fighters in Iraq and Syria, the study finds that countries which have passed restrictive legislation exhibit higher rates of foreign fighters than those which have not, and that societal discrimination appears to have no effect on the rate of radicalisation.

    The link between ethnic diversity and scientific impact: the mediating effect of novelty and audience diversity2021In: Scientometrics, ISSN 0138-9130, E-ISSN 1588-2861, Vol. 126, no 9, p. 7759-7810Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Understanding the nature and value of scientific collaboration is essential for sound management and proactive research policies. One component of collaboration is the composition and diversity of contributing authors. This study explores how ethnic diversity in scientific collaboration affects scientific impact, by presenting a conceptual model to connect ethnic diversity, based on author names, with scientific impact, assuming novelty and audience diversity as mediators. The model also controls for affiliated country diversity and affiliated country size. Using path modeling, we apply the model to the Web of Science subject categories Nanoscience & Nanotechnology, Ecology and Information Science & Library. For all three subject categories, and regardless of if control variables are considered or not, we find a weak positive relationship between ethnic diversity and scientific impact. The relationship is weaker, however, when control variables are included. For all three fields, the mediated effect through audience diversity is substantially stronger than the mediated effect through novelty in the relationship, and the former effect is much stronger than the direct effect between the ethnic diversity and scientific impact. Our findings further suggest that ethnic diversity is more associated with short-term scientific impact compared to long-term scientific impact.

    Can Honor Killings Be Explained With the Concept of Social Death?: Reinterpreting Social Psychological Evidence2020In: Homicide Studies, ISSN 1088-7679, E-ISSN 1552-6720, Vol. 24, no 2, p. 127-150Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article uses the concept of social death to explore the experiences and motivations of perpetrators of honor killings in light of social psychological evidence. This analysis then seeks an explanation for some honor killing cases where ostracism or extreme social exclusion of the perpetrator has preceded the murder. I argue that in some honor killing cases, extreme rejection and exclusion may lead the individual to feel that he or she has no choice but to seek validation or approval through killing to be re-included and recognized by the community and family.

    The Profiles of Victims, Perpetrators, and Unfounded Beliefs in Honor Killings in Turkey2014In: Homicide Studies, ISSN 1088-7679, E-ISSN 1552-6720, Vol. 18, no 4, p. 389-416Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite Turkey's increasing awareness of honor killings, many unfounded beliefs and assumptions still pervade concerning the general profiles of victims, perpetrators, and the crimes committed. These erroneous views are predicated upon a plethora of weak generalizations rather than robust research evidence. Yet, such claims have a significant impact on both the regulations aiming to combat these killings and the working practices of the officers struggling to prevent their occurrence. By deploying a qualitative interview method, corroborated by court rulings and prison files, and reflecting views of prisoners who have committed murder in the name of honor (namus) in Turkey, the author, herein, attempts to construct a data-based description of honor killing.

    When Hybrid Autocratic Regimes Abuse the “Constitutional State of Emergency”: Repression Towards Social Movements2022Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Global awareness of governments’ abuse of the Constitutional State of Emergency “CSoE” took place after the COVID-19 pandemic, although it is not a new phenomenon and is widely used, especially by hybrid autocratic regimes. However, few studies have studied its impact on social movements’ Political Collective Action “PCA” and were limited to the analysis of single deviant cases. In order to fill the gap, the research is aimed to investigate how, if at all, social movements in hybrid regimes overcome the PCA challenges under the CSoE?

    As a corollary, the study will examine the four PCA challenges -organization, interest, demands, and mobilization- in the context of Egypt, with emphasis on the “legal” procedures deployed by hybrid regimes via the highlight of social movement repression.The findings of the comparison conducted is consistent with the proposed causal mechanism, as it implies that when social movement overcome PCA challenges, their level of threat increases, placing a significant cost on the government, which increases the likelihood of the repression.
