    Twitter4HRs promotion: a study of a sexual minority rights network’s twitter communication during the 2016 Ugandan general election.2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Uganda has since the introduction of the anti-homosexuality bill of 2009, experienced an increasingly polarized media discourse on sexual minority rights. Rights that are indisputable for other Ugandan citizens most notably rights to privacy, health and indeed life, are questioned in relation to sexual minorities in mainstream media. The following study analyses a Ugandan NGO’s utilization of Twitter to supply the domestic public with counter-narratives and attempts to assert sexual minority rights in connection with the general election which will take place February 18 2016. The tentative analysis indicates that while Twitter is actively used as a space for highlighting organizational activity and events, information sharing, emotional support for group members, it is also used as a tool for political commentary on both news media coverage of sexual minority issues, and perhaps more importantly a platform for discussing the political candidates’ positioning of themselves in relation to rights issues. The official Twitter account is thus an important tool for political commentary and dissemination of counter narratives on sexual minority rights. The study concludes that Twitter, although restricting through its format, provides minority groups important access to public space otherwise denied on traditional media platforms.

    Understanding violence as a barrier to HIV-service uptake among LGBT and sex workers in Sub-Saharan AfricaIn: African Journal of AIDS ResearchArticle in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The negative effects of criminalization on HIV service uptake by MSM, IDU and SW’

    have received significant attention and it is widely recognized in the public health

    community that de-criminalization efforts are important. Through a document analysis

    of 198 submissions made to the Global Commission on HIV and the Law in 2011, the

    following study however suggest that although decriminalization efforts of MSM, SW

    and IDU needs our continued attention, efforts will not produce the intended results

    unless the issue of violence experienced by key vulnerable populations most notably

    perpetrated by law enforcement are addressed. The study’s findings highlight that

    key populations’experiences of violence is not only a serious human rights abuse, but

    an important barrier to service uptake. Targeted training of law enforcement and the

    judiciary branches is thus of the utmost importance in order to ensure a full return on

    public health investments and legal reforms.

    Anti-corruption Efforts in National ICT Policies: A Study of Policy Environments in Sub-Saharan Africa2019In: nformation and Communication Technologies for Development: Strengthening Southern-Driven Cooperation as a Catalyst for ICT4D. ICT4D 2019 / [ed] P. Nielsen and H. C. Kimaro, Springer, 2019, Vol. 551, p. 520-531Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Many countries in Sub-Saharan Africa suffer from endemic corruption, which disrupts developmentefforts. Although ICTs is no magic wand, several studies indicate that ICT can serve as an important toolfor combatting corruption by increasing transparency, and enable citizens to hold public officialsaccountable. Anti-corruption efforts are however dependent on strong political will and rule of law to besuccessful. A policy typically contains description of government intentions formulated into concreteobjectives, as well as the rationale behind government targets. Furthermore, policies guide programmaticresponses. The aim of this study is to explore how ICTs’ anti-corruption potential have been understood atthe policy level over time in ICT policies from nine Sub-Saharan African countries between 2000 and2018. The study concludes that although there are signs of a growing understanding of ICTs as a multipurposetool for anti-corruption towards the end of the period, most policies fail to produce acomprehensive and explicit narratives as well as statements affirming political will. The policyenvironment’s development trajectory, albeit positive, thus leaves room for improvement in termshighlighting ICTs potential contributions.

    Mobile Phones as a Citizen-Controlled Anti-corruption Tool in East Africa - A Literature Review2017In: Information and Communication Technologies for Development / [ed] Choudrie, J; Islam, MS; Wahid, F; Bass, JM; Priyatma, JE, 2017, p. 753-764Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite agreement amongst donors, business and political leaders concerning the negative effects of corruption, levels have not fallen in East Africa. The continued high levels of corruption, reassert the need for a better understanding if mobile phones, if prolific enough, can be an effective tool against corruption. Through a literature review of ten years M4D and ICT4D research on mobiles as a citizens-controlled tool for (a) accessing government information either directly or through citizens’ crowd-sourcing of information and (b) mobilization to demand greater government transparency, as well as, (c) instantaneous reporting of corruption in East Africa; this study attempts to gauge the status of this research field. The review included the ten highest ranking open access ICT4D journals, and six journals from parent disciplines; information system and development studies, as well as conference proceedings from the M4D conferences, and the SIG Globdev Workshops. The review concludes that earlier optimism around mobiles’ potential to support citizens’ counter-corruption actions, has not resulted in a significant body of research. Nor does the literature provide any substantive clues as to why this urgent topic has not been explored more fully.

    Can the concept “political opportunity structure” inform M4D research?2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Mobile phone acquisition and usage in Sub-Saharan Africa has seen a tremendous growth over the past decade. In the wake of this expansion, the technology has often been ascribed the role of a potential transformer in diverse areas, such as governance and democratization, civil society mobilization, transparency and anti-corruption. A reoccurring theme in much of the literature, is a taken for granted causality between access to mobile technology and civil society participation and ultimately empowerment of the same connected citizens.

    Although social movement theory have long recognized the importance of the political context as a key determining factor for the emergence of social movements, their impact and their longevity, few scholars have paid attention to the concepts of  "political opportunity structure" in relation to M4D (Mobile Communication for Development).  

    The following paper will explore how this concept can inform our understanding of when and where, i.e., under what socio-political conditions mobile technology seem to become a mobiliser and tool to claim space to participate in political processes. The paper will attempt to conceptualize how perceived political opportunity, and indeed constraints could be understood in relation to M4D. The paper departs from an assumption that mobile phones contains a transformative potential, but argues that whether it become enlisted as a tool by social actors is dependent on their understanding of the medium and parameters such as, but not limited to, the receptiveness of the formal political system, the existence of allies within government or the formal political system, the expected monetary and personal costs for social mobilization as well as likely outcomes of collective action. The research argues that existing political institutions should not be treated as epiphenomenal, but rather seen as important structures warranting attention, in order to understand mobiles as a tool for participation.

    ICTs and Opportunities of Empowerment in a Context of State-Sanctioned Homophobia: The case of the LGBTQI community in Kampala2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    After decades of growing acceptance of LGBTQI human rights in the West, Uganda began an African backlash in 2009, when it introduced an Anti-Homosexuality Bill. Even if the Bill was eventually defeated, it signaled the beginning of a new era of state-sponsored homophobia and wide-spread societal discrimination. State-sponsored persecution has however not silenced the Ugandan LGBTQI community. In the following reflections we explore the Ugandan LGBTQI community’s remarkable resilience and quest for change and in particular their use of ICTs for empowerment. Based on a pilot study conducted in November 2016, and ongoing online observations, tentative results are that the community organizes their communication practices around a division between intra-group organization (so-called deep information), and broadcasting and human-rights advocacy (surface information), due to perceived risks as well as opportunities of different communication modes and platforms.

    Upplagt för konflikt: Hur snusbranschen marknadskommunicerar på en hårt reglerad marknad2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim and purpose of the thesis is to find out how companies in the snus-business plan their communication and succeed to reach the consumers despite the marketing regulations. Their stakeholder communication and how the regulations affect their way of communicating is also of interest.

    The method used for collecting data for this thesis was qualitative interviews with relevant people in the Swedish snus-business. The results and analysis of the results are based on the interviews.

    The results show that the snus-companies, regardless of the regulations, reach their consumers. The few platforms for marketing communication they can use become more important and are used to the fullest. The companies are forced to push the boundaries of the marketing communication-material because of the vague formulations of the regulations. The communication with stakeholders, such as politicians, is important for the companies since they have power to affect the operations.

    Att förstå mediekritik: Begreppsliga, empiriska och teoretiska studier av svensk mediekritik 1998-20132015Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Media criticism is studied as a concept, as critical expression and as a force for social change. The concept of media criticism is developed in relation to different forms of critical practice, theory about criticism and critique and as a part of theories about media accountability. Media criticism as a force of social change is approached by exploring concepts for the analysis of social and cultural forms of media criticism.

    Four kinds of media texts published in Sweden between 1998 and 2013 were analysed to investigate critical expression: television columns, reflective books on journalism written by journalists, debate articles and letters to the editor. They were studied in terms of how they address actors, content and forms of critique and responsiveness. The methodology used was reflexive interpretation mainly driven by insight, but also with an emancipative intention. Qualitative text analysis was the major method used, combined with quantitative content analysis.

    The concept of media criticism is developed on three levels as normative and institutional, focused on established norms and values, norm shaping and formative, focused on establishing new norms and values and openness and practice, making it possible for many people to contribute to critique. Media criticism can further be specified in three dimensions comprising its intentions, the object of critique and the process of critique. Taken together they establish different forms of criticality in which a communicative intention is seen as essential. 

    The dissertation shows that media criticism should be given a more independent role in relation to the media accountability frame. Critical cultures and practices should be analysed in their relations to accountability cultures and practices. The concepts of institution, formative and formation were used for analysing the social and cultural forms of media criticism, where institutions are understood as the stable forms of media criticism, formatives as the changeable forms and formations as the combination of the two. Criticism and critical practice potentially have an important role to play for change in the media, journalism and society by addressing issues in an open and reflexive way. The approach to media criticism developed in the dissertation is termed critical institutionalism and aims to bridge the gap between critical social science, the sociology of critique and institutional analysis as applied in media studies.

    “China Going Out” or the “World Going In”? The Shanghai World Expo 2010 in the Swedish Media2013In: Javnost - The Public, ISSN 1318-3222, Vol. 20, no 4, p. 83-97Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Public diplomacy, nation branding and soft power are the theoretical notions used in this analysis of the Shanghai Expo 2010 and its reception in the Swedish media. This article studies the full coverage during 2010 of the Expo in the four main Swedish dailies. First, a general overview of the reports is presented and then a focused analysis of how the media texts deal with (a) reasons for arranging/participating (b) representation of China/Sweden (c) reporting about outcomes of the Expo and (d) reporting on the international exhibition phenomena. The major conclusion of the study is that Expo 2010 contributed to China's "going global" strategy in a specific way; rather than being used as a vehicle for China "going out" in the world, it became a vehicle for Sweden, and the world,"going in" to China. Another observation discussed is that the international exhibition form was used to de-mediate interactions and relations, offering situated meetings in a unique event context as a node for further mediated communication.

    Activist Capitals in Network Societies: Towards a Typology for Studying Networking Power in Contemporary Activist Demands2014In: First Monday, ISSN 1396-0466, E-ISSN 1396-0466, Vol. 19, no 8Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Network societies are characterized by social media — media that are supposed to level out power hierarchies — making political participation more inclusive and equal. By developing a typology for studying networking power within activist demands in network societies, such techno–optimistic/deterministic assumptions are questioned. This typology is based on Bourdieu’s conceptual framework of social fields, habitus and capitals. It revolves around participating, mobilising, connecting and engaging capital and how these intersect, overlap and are used for negotiating recognition which I argue is of pivotal importance for upholding core positions among activists. Such core positions are related to networking power, i.e., knowing how and being in a position to network in order to decide about courses of events in the organisation of the demand/social field and its actions. This largely theoretical account is exemplified from an ethno– and nethnographic study of a group of middle–class activists in southern Stockholm using online platforms in tandem with more traditional off–line activist activities to organise and mobilise participation.

    Amplification and Virtual Back-Patting: The Rationalities of Social Media Uses in the Nina Larsson Web-Campaign2014In: Political Campaigning in the Information Age / [ed] Ashu M. G. Solo, IGI Global, 2014, p. 51-65Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter intends to explore the rationalities of politicians' social media uses in web-campaigning in a party-based democracy. I will do this from an in-depth case study of a Swedish Liberal Party politician, Nina Larsson, who with the help of a PR- agency utilized several social media platforms in her campaign to become re-elected to the Swedish Parliament in 2010. By analysing how and for what purposes Larsson used social media in her web-campaign, this chapter concludes that even though discourses of instrumental rationality, to strategically target specific voter groups, and of communicative rationality, to establish loci for electorate-politician deliberations, were common to make her practices relevant, Nina primarily used social media to amplify certain offline news media texts by recirculating them in her social media networks as well as to commend and support other liberal party members. Hence from this case the chapter concludes that web-campaigning on social media are also used for expressive purposes, to negotiate and maintaing an attractive political image within the party hierarchy.

    Deliberation, Dialogue or just Updating? : Activist social media practices in southern Stockholm2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses social media platforms and their promise of deliberation. Based on a (n)ethnograpic inspired case study of middle class activists in southern Stockholm, the question this paper seeks to discuss is whether the activists in my study used social media platforms for deliberation, dialogue or for something else. The aim is to understand and discuss contemporary practices of activist political participation online. In this paper it will be argued that rather than deliberation, or dialogue for that matter, activists were engaging in practices of online updating. Such practices will be understood in light of late modern theories of reflexivity, identity negotiation and maintenance.

    Social media platforms are defined as different from other sites because they allow users to articulate their social networks while making them visible to other users (for one definition see Ellison and boyd, 2007, p. 2). The social media platforms used in southern Stockholm (Facebook, Twitter and Ning) provided activists with a new set of opportunities and different modes of processing information, networking and interacting with each other as well as the outside world. Social media platforms are no doubt altering the way we live and socialize, shaping the way things get done, providing access to information and giving us new tools that allow us to arrange and take part in all sorts of activities and encounters (Dahlgren, 2009; Leaning, 2009; Rheingold, 2002). In this paper I will argue that one practice emerging as dominant among contemporary activists is updating, often misleadingly labelled as sharing or interacting which in turn sometimes is confused with dialogue (which in turn is confused for deliberation).

    The paper starts with a brief look at the role of deliberation in Western and connected societies. This section will be followed by a description of the setting in southern Stockholm and the methods used to study the activists there. The analysis begins with an evaluation of the empirical findings in southern Stockholm against theories of deliberation. This will be followed by an argument making the case for updating being the appropriate concept to describe the activists' practices on the social media platforms they used. The paper continues with an analysis about how to understand such practices. Finally, I will end with a discussion on the implications of updating on political participation. Even though they cannot be considered dialogue or deliberation, practices of updating have certain consequences for participation and representative systems that could be considered positive and encouraging for democracy.
