    Sport for Peace: exploring the contribution of sport to cohabitation in a divided society2021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Sport-for-peace programs rely on sport and contact in order to contribute to intergroup reconciliation efforts and a peaceful society. This thesis asks ‘how contact in a sport-for-peace program influences the willingness to live together in a deeply divided society’? Specifically, this thesis poses that more years of intergroup contact (hypothesis 1) and a better quality of intergroup contact (hypothesis 2) will lead to more willingness to live together. This research is based on a unique theoretical framework that relies on contact theory and is grounded in a relational peace framework. It is suggested that (quantity and quality) of contact improve the intergroup relationships within a sport-for-peace program which, in turn, improves participants’ willingness for cohabitation. A mixed method design is used in this study, drawing on unique survey data for logistic regression and the analysis of semi-structured interviews. Results give little support for hypothesis 1, but support hypothesis 2. This study found that especially the quality of contact in a sport-for-peace program is a good predictor for willingness to live together, and that this relationship is primarily driven by the extent to which the intergroup contact is considered pleasant by participants.

    Summit Meetings: Good or Bad for Peace?2017In: Global Summitry, ISSN 2058-7430, Vol. 2, p. 71-92Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The systematic study of summit diplomacy, its role in international relations, and its contribution to world peace is remarkably scant. The research presented here is a step forward in understanding the significance of direct, personal, face-to-face meetings between top leaders in dominant states. Such summits continue to generate a lot of attention, often preceded with high expectations and leaving in disappointment. This article will present a unique dataset of summit meetings between the United States and its main competitor for global influence, the Soviet Union and modern Russia. We begin with the first meeting ever between Roosevelt and Stalin in 1943 in Tehran, Iran and end with a 2014 meeting between Obama and Putin in Brisbane, Australia. The data are used to evaluate several hypotheses about relationships between summit meetings and armed conflict. Our findings suggest that the summit meetings have been motivated by conflicts but do not contribute to their management. Wars involving Russia also account for the relationship between summit frequency and international cooperation. These results raise questions about the conflict-managing functions of summit meetings.

    Discovering Zimbabwean Digital Literature: An Exploratory Study of the Typologies and Properties of Online Audiences of Ephemeral Literature2023Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Cathrine Phiri's novel ‘Never Mine’ on Facebook, highlights the liberating potential of online literary engagement, particularly for female readers, amid creative restrictions in Zimbabwe. Utilising both the Afrocentric and Communicative Figuration concepts, the study examines how digital ephemeral literature fosters connection and conversation. It delves into audience typologies, alignment with community ideals, complex social structures and cultural behaviour. Methodologically, this study takes on a deductive approach and makes use of the theoretical framework that comprises the Afrocentric model and the Communicative Figuration model. African literary circles have in the past embraced the online medium, making digital literary content highly successful, despite its realised (or otherwise perceived) ephemerality. The digital landscape has not only facilitated connections between African writers and their readers but has also enriched the literary landscape through the proliferation of new literary expressions.

    The data, collected from Facebook interactions in the form of screenshots from user comments, replies and reactions sheds light onto this phenomenon. Grounded in a synthesis of literary studies and digital media studies, this study shows how audience members are seen to readily engage in conversations that are deemed central to African cultural and social being. Never Mine shows that there is a large audience for online ephemeral literature and that this audience is largely active and dynamic in nature, from the observed user comments and reactions. The behaviour of the African audience is therefore intricately connected to the complex interplay of cultural, digital, and political elements that are unique to the region. Thus, grasping these dynamics is essential to comprehend the distinctive trends in online engagement and information consumption within the African context. Different platforms are therefore seen to connect readers to new writing on the continent – writing that more accurately reflects their own lived realities – and in innovative ways.

    Från någon som vet till andra som inte vet: en studie av Alf Henrikson som folkbildare2007Licentiate thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this study the overarching question is in what way the Swedishauthor Alf Henrikson has acted as a popular educator and if he as such hasbeen a part of a popular educational context. The different popular educationalactivities he associated with could be considered as verification thathe did act as a popular educator. Two works of his popular historical authorshipare examined and they are characterized by the intention or ambitionto disseminate historical knowledge. By his historical authorship healso was a part of a popular historical tradition in Sweden.Henrikson appeared at several times as a popular lecturer and hereby hereproduces a tradition from the worker’s institutes and the associations forpopular lectures. He also performed on several occasions in radio programsand TV programs and disseminated knowledge and education. Radio broadcastsas well as television are regarded as popular educational activities. Inconsideration to the subject areas of his knowledge he can be affiliated withan educational ideal in the Swedish worker’s movement and Swedish populareducation. His educational ideal is the personality creating neohumanisticprinciple. Henrikson also supported the thought of taking over the middles-classes idea of cultural heritage.

    Food tourism for regional sustainable development: Challenges in Collaborations for local Restaurants on Gotland2020Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis explores the challenges local restaurants face in collaborations within thecontext of food tourism development on Gotland. For the past few years, themunicipality of Gotland as showed interests and efforts in developing the island into asustainable food destination. In this process, collaborations between keys actors, oneof which is local restaurants, is one of the most important components. Therefore,studying the challenges presenting in this area would be beneficial to future strategyand planning for development. This study was conducted through interviews withseveral established restaurants on Gotland to understand their perspectives on theobstacles that hinder co-operations in the food tourism sector. Qualitative methodswith narrative analysis were implemented to evaluate the results. It is shown that localrestaurants face several challenges when collaborating in the process of food tourismdevelopment on Gotland. According to them, the most prominent obstacle is the lackof a main driving force to stimulate a strong and reliable network for collaborationson the island. The paper concludes by proposing the establishment of a Food TourismBoard under Gotland Visitor Association (GFB). This agency will act as the maindriving force to develop and encourage co-operations and related projects in foodtourism on Gotland.

    Decentralization: a double-edged sword?: A comparative case study on decentralization and its influence on ethnic conflict and secessionism2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study evaluates the influence of decentralization on ethnic conflict and secessionism. There is little agreement in the existing literature, as several scholars argue for regional autonomy as an effective method of conflict resolution while other scholars argue that decentralization exacerbates ethnic conflict by reinforcing ethnic identities and promoting ethnic mobilization. By adopting a theoretical framework that distinguishes itself from previous research, an argument is proposed that while regional autonomy concessions provide a direct short-term effect, the indirect consequences of decentralization risk reinforcing ethnic identities and encourage ethnic mobilization long-term. Thus, a combination of territorial and governmental power sharing is necessary for decentralization to be successful in reducing ethnic conflict and secessionism. By adopting a combined structural and group perspective on decentralization, the argument is implemented in a within-case comparison of Spain as well as a between-case comparison with Bosnia and Herzegovina. Main findings suggest that regional autonomy does not provide short-term reduction, rather, a combination of territorial and governmental power sharing with full inclusion into executive power is required for decentralization to successfully reduce ethnic conflict and secessionism. Additional insights on national identity as a compelling variable with potential theoretical inference were also gained.

    Introducing an Agenda-based Measurement of Mediation Success: The Divergent Effects of the Manipulation Strategy in African Civil Wars2019In: International Negotiation, ISSN 1382-340X, E-ISSN 1571-8069, Vol. 24, no 2, p. 296-323Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous quantitative mediation research has relied on generalized measurements of "mediation success," such as agreements, ceasefires or peace durability. However, these measurements of success do not take into account what mediators were mandated to achieve. We propose benchmarking outcomes against the explicit mandates of the interventions, a novel way of conceptualizing mediation success. Utilizing data on the agendas of mediated negotiations in intrastate armed conflicts in Africa between 1990 and 2010 as a proxy for mediation mandates, we examine the relative effectiveness of manipulation as a mediation strategy. The study shows, in contrast to previous research, that third party manipulation does not have a significant effect on whether the goal of a given round of negotiations is achieved and, that under some circumstances, may decrease the likelihood of mediation success. We discuss the opportunities as well as limitations of a mandate-based approach to the study of mediation success.

    From Bullets to Boreholes: A Disaggregated Analysis of Domestic Water Cooperation in Drought-prone Regions2020In: Global Environmental Change, ISSN 0959-3780, E-ISSN 1872-9495, Vol. 65, article id 102147Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Does water shortage incentivize cooperation? Case studies suggests that water scarcity can rarely, if at all, explain violence, instead such shortages rather facilitate cooperative actions around water. Another major argument from qualitative research holds that water scarcity and armed conflict often occur side by side. These insights have rarely been tested empirically across cases on a sub-national level. Earlier quantitative work instead focused on basin or state level interactions. This article fills these gaps by using disaggregated data to analyze the effect of water scarcity on incidences of domestic water cooperation. Using event data covering the Mediterranean area and Northern Africa (1997–2009), this article first shows that water-related actions, cooperative or conflictual, in general are more frequent in water scarce areas. Second, the analysis demonstrates that water cooperation occurs in areas with difficult access to groundwater and with a history of violence. Third, the findings suggest that the relationship between water scarcity and water cooperation is conditional on levels of democracy. The presented results also differ depending on whether state or non-state actors collaborate in domestic water initiatives. Taken together, these findings provide crucial insights to our understanding of environmental peacebuilding and water security.

    Building peace together: A qualitative study of faith-based NGOs on intergroup reconciliation in Bosnia and Herzegovina2022Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Intergroup reconciliation involves a holistic change in attitudes and interactions between groups. However, sustainable reconciliation has often times been overlooked from previous research. This paper aims to contribute to the research gap by applying the well-tested contact hypothesis in the context of NGO structure. The positive results in change of reconciliation attitudes suggests thereby that NGOs should not only be evaluated by its external effects but also by its internal effects on its own members. No negative consequences could be found. Combining intergroup contact with youth, providing informal education and combining it with inter-faith projects within a faith-based institution have yielded the best results.

    Biografier om gangsters och åldrande rockstjärnor som snortar myror: en diskursanalytisk undersökning av litteraturförmedling i livsstilsmagasin för män2010Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

     

    The aim of this thesis is to examine men's attitudes towards literature, and how social norms affect their book reading, in order to contribute to the knowledge of why men's book reading is decreasing. This is realized through a discourse analysis of literature recommendations in men's lifestyle magazines.

    Two magazines, King of Sweden and Magazine Café, are examined through critical discourse analysis. Theories of discourse are combined with theories of gender to explore how gender stereotypes affect men's reading habits.

    The analysis shows that ideals of masculinity have a great influence on the book recommendations. Social norms, associated with gender, also seem to have significance to whether or not a book is considered suitable for men to read. These are, inter alia, norms of heterosexuality and violence. In addition to that, a homosocial structure is found in the magazines, regarding the authors of the recommended books. The majority of the authors are men, and women are rarely mentioned at all in the book recommendations. Also, non-fiction books are much more frequent than fiction in the recommendations.

    Not much prior research has been done in the field. The research, that however has been done, correspond with the results of the analysis in this thesis. Therefore the conclusion is drawn that the results of the analysis show structures of social norms that are valid even outside the examined material. Knowledge of men's reading habits is concluded to be very important, in order to increase men's book reading.

    This is a two years master's thesis in library and information science.

    Doing intimate family work through ICTs in the time of networked individualism2023In: Journal of Family Studies, ISSN 1322-9400, E-ISSN 1839-3543, Vol. 29, no 2, p. 758-773Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Traditionally, family intimacy has been seen as depending on spatial proximity and physical closeness. However, due to individualization and globalization, many families live apart and/or spend their days away from each other. Moreover, a shift in family communication from household-to-household to person-to-person has occurred in the context of so-called networked individualism. These changes make it imperative to investigate how contemporary families communicate to create and maintain intimacy in and across households. Drawing on the concept of doing intimate family work, this study investigates the small acts performed in everyday life to do family intimacy through ICT in the context of networked individualism. We conducted interviews with 6 multigenerational families – spread across 18 households in Sweden and the US. Results show how responsibilities and practices of family communication become part of doing intimate family work, through personalized technology, with consequences for each individual family member. We explore the various affordances family members realize through actions in order to support family intimacy and how these practices reinforce the importance of the family home as a physical base for cross-household family communication.

    A caring interview: Polar questions, epistemic stance and care in examinations of eligibility for social benefits2019In: Discourse Studies, ISSN 1461-4456, E-ISSN 1461-7080, Vol. 21, no 4, p. 375-397Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on conversation analysis, this study investigates central practices in what is defined as a caring interview, in the context of welfare administration. Caring refers to (1) a helpful interviewing in reformulations of questions, taking interviewees' difficulties to answer into consideration; (2) a caring attitude in the framing of questions, showing understanding of clients' circumstances and (3) professional's enactment of expertise in assessments of clients' disabilities and care needs. Data include a corpus of 43 recorded interviews in which officials at the Swedish Social Insurance Agency interview clients who have applied for benefits. The study adds to research on interactional sensitivity, polar questions and epistemic stance in institutional interaction. The study shows how the interviewer prioritizes confirming polar questions, takes responsibilities of knowing into account and reduces the epistemic gap to the interviewee in practices of a caring interview. This makes the interviewing markedly different from standardized and bureaucratic interviewing.

    Abstract [en]

    This research thesis explores the evolving nature of institutional archival acquisitions, emphasizing the economic and symbolic value of archives. Despite it being relatively underexplored and its status as a niche market, the market concerning private archives bear real effects on donor choices and interinstitutional competition, and no less holds the potential for expansion. This study aims to investigate how the market influence public archive institutions' capacity to acquire new archive materials, as well as the economic and cultural resources they possess to compete as go-to repositories and market players.

    The objective is realized through semi-structured interviews conducted in Sweden and the United Kingdom. The respondent from The National Archives (TNA) of the United Kingdom contributes unique insights through the institution's specific efforts to strengthen the position of archival institutions in the market. E-mail interviews with respondents from several of Sweden's major archival and manuscript institutions also contribute to this dataset. Data collection occurred in September 2023, with on-site interviews at TNA facilitated by Uppsala University's generous support.

    Results indicate that institutions face consequences regarding access to material, due to new wealthy market stakeholders, an increase in price, and sellers’ opportunism. A proposed paradigm shift calls for revised guidelines to secure the long-term mission of archival institutions, coupled with increased research to understand the evolving forces affecting them. This is a two-year master’s thesis in Archival Science.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this two years master thesis in Library and Information Science is to examine how librarians and library managers in the three Stockholm suburbs of Alby, Fisksätra and Rinkeby think and reason about the role of public libraries in the integration process. The aim is also to examine whether their perception differ from that of local politicians at the municipal level. The theoretical framework is Marianne Andersson and Dorte Skot-Hanses model for analysis of the local library profile, and Jose Alberto Diaz theory on the integration process. The method used is qualitative interviews. The interviews were recorded and the content was analyzed using qualitative content analysis. 

    The results of this study show that the library services in the three suburbs, rather than being stipulated by the legal demand for special services towards immigrants, are based on the needs of the local population. Since a majority of the populations in the three suburbs are of foreign origin, no specific conceptual apparatus (such as immigrant) is required. Furthermore, the study shows no significant differences between library personnel and local politicians in their perception of the public librarys role in the integration process. There were, however, in the case of Fisksätra, different views expressed concerning the primary purposes of the local library. 

    According to Diaz model of the integration process, the library primarily plays a role in the social, communicative and personal integration dimension. All of the library's four roles (identified by Andersson and Skot-Hansen  as a cultural centre, a knowledge centre, an information centre and a social centre) are of importance for the integration, but the roles sometimes compete, indicating a lack of sufficient economic and human resources.

    Medborgarkunskaper eller faktakunskaper?: En textanalys av aktualiteter och kunskapsideal i de nationella proven i samhällskunskap2023Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna studie studeras vilket innehåll som inkluderas i de nationella proven i samhällskunskap förårskurs 9 mellan åren 2013 och 2016, och vad det kan säga om syftet med innehållet. Syftet medstudien är att studera de kunskapsideal som kommer till uttryck i de nationella proven isamhällskunskap, med ett särskilt fokus på aktualiteter som ett innehåll i ett kunskapsideal, i relationtill konkurrerande kunskapsideal. Materialet som används i studien är frågorna i de nationellaproven i samhällskunskap från åren 2013 till 2016. De teoretiska utgångspunkterna för studien ärutbildningsfilosofier, organisationsprinciper och traditioner i samhällskunskapsämnet i fråga ominnehåll och syfte. Utifrån dessa har de analytiska verktygen skapats, de olika kunskapsidealen.Dessa är det fostrande kunskapsidealet, det vetenskapliga kunskapsidealet och detdemokratiska/medborgerliga kunskapsidealet. En textanalys har använts för att analysera materialetoch undersöka mening. Meningen, det vill säga syftet med inkluderingen av ett visst innehåll,undersöks med hjälp av kunskapsidealen nämnda ovan. Resultaten för studien visar att det innehållsom inkluderas i proven bekräftar det innehåll som forskningen säger är den allra vanligaste iskriftliga prov. Detta är bland annat samhällsekonomi och Sveriges styrelseskick. Utöver dettainkluderades även innehåll som bland annat behandlar demokrati och demokratiska värden,samhällsfrågor, lag och rätt, källkritik och mänskliga rättigheter. Det vetenskapliga kunskapsidealetkommer till uttryck i nästan all typ av innehåll. Detta visar på ett prioriterande av mätbar kunskapoch ett vetenskapligt förhållningssätt i skolan som kan relateras till de nuvarande styrdokumenten.Resultatet visar även att när aktualiteter används återfinns dessa i de frågor där detdemokratiska/medborgerliga kunskapsidealet kommer till uttryck. Detta innebär att aktualiteterparas ihop med innehåll vars syfte är att testa elevers medborgarkunskaper, självständiga tänkandeoch källkritik. Eleverna skulle uppvisa olika kunskaper beroende på den typ av fråga som ställdes. I frågor där det vetenskapliga kunskapsidealet kom till uttryck skulle eleverna främst uppvisabegreppslig förståelse och faktakunskaper. I frågor där det fostrande kunskapsidealet kom tilluttryck skulle elever framförallt uppvisa sina kunskaper i demokrati och demokratiska värden samtkällkritik. I frågor där det demokratiska/medborgerliga kunskapsidealet kom till uttryck skulleeleverna framförallt visa på en självständighet i deras resonemang, diskutera och analysera.Resultatet i studien visar på de syften som kan utläsas i det innehåll som inkluderas i de nationellaproven och hur detta relaterar till den typ av medborgare och det samhälle man önskar forma medett visst innehåll.

    Designing Cattle: The Social Practice of Constructing Breeds2020In: Anthrozoos, ISSN 0892-7936, E-ISSN 1753-0377, Vol. 33, no 2, p. 175-190Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores how cattle breeds are constructed through social practice-which we conceptually develop as "designing" cattle. We show how breed varieties are designed, informed by the social, material and moral embeddedness of cattle breeding associations' visions of the future and how they draw on science and technology in their breeding strategies. Based on an analysis of the trade magazines of three different breeding associations, we illustrate how breeding associations are working to establish four different varieties of Swedish Mountain Cattle (SMC). We conclude that the concept of designing cattle enables us to unpack how breeds are socially constructed and institutionally stabilized through sociotechnical imaginaries.
