    A Structural Development Trap?: A Critical Analysis of the Idea of a ‘Universal, Rules-Based, Open, Non-Discriminatory, and Equitable Multilateral Trading System’.2021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Human rights advocates have expressed their concern about the marginalisation of human rights principles and the actual or potential human rights implications of WTO agreements. The international economic law and human rights law have been developed as two parallel regimes, yet trade and economics have been at the centre of most developing agendas in modern time. There has been a persistent desire to achieve a universal multilateral trading system by both Global North and Global South. The Agenda 2030 is not an exception to emphasise the importance of such a trading system as one of its targets calls for a ‘universal, rules-based, open, non-discriminatory, and equitable multilateral trading system’. Furthermore, the desired multilateral trading system is presumed to facilitate other development goals of the Agenda. Although peoples’ living standards are increasing worldwide, substantial inequalities remain between and within countries. If we only focus on legal rights and freedoms, people may live on the verge of an adequate standard of living and are thus not able to improve one’s well-being beyond that and lead the life one has reason to value. Hence, this study aims to go beyond the legislative protection of human rights by applying Amartya Sen’s capability approach which focuses on the ethical notion of human rights. Additionally, the approach focuses on the expansion of peoples’ capabilities and freedoms to achieve what one value doing and being. If a universal multilateral trading system is assumed to be beneficial for trade, economy, and to achieve development goals, will the outcomes of such system be beneficial for all peoples’ capabilities to lead the lives they have reason to value? The main findings of this study suggest that the political economy of world trade facilitates a subordination of countries in which some are benefitted, while others are stuck with the production of goods associated with low wages and unhealthy work conditions. This may affect the distribution of intergenerational equity and sustainability, affecting capabilities of many generations to come. One significant conclusion of this study is that legislative protection of human rights is not enough to target detrimental structures and to ensure everyone the kind of life and living standards one has reason to value.

    Rebel Whispers: An issue-based approach to peace agreement success and civil war resolution2020Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    While issues remain under-researched, peace agreement success has been linked primarily to the proper treatment of the parties’ security-related concerns. This study explores why some peace agreements succeed while others fail by using an issue-based approach arguing that issues are an expression of underlying grievances, which have caused the rebel groups to engage in armed conflict. Therefore, peace agreements that do not address the issues, which reflect grievances, will fail.

    I tested the hypothesis and the proposed theoretical relationship through the structured focused comparison of three peace agreements: The Lomé Peace Agreement, the Accra Peace Agreement and the Final Agreement National Government – Popular Liberation Army. The method employed in this study comprised first, determining the salience the rebel groups assigned to their issues -for which it was necessary to create a measure for issue salience- and second, examining the peace agreement’s provisions to determine if the rebel group’s issues were addressed.

    The results show that peace agreements that included the salient issues of the groups failed; however, peace agreements that did not include them, succeeded. Hence, the findings suggest that the inclusion of the rebel group’s issues in the peace agreement cannot account for the agreement’s success or failure.

    Protesting After War: Investigating the long-term effect of insurgent violence on protest dynamics in Colombia2022Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In order to break the cycle of violence in war-ridden societies, nonviolent mechanisms to deal with conflicts has to be established. One such mechanism is protests, which when performed peacefully can be a powerful tool for political change. Protests can however also be a cause for violence and this thesis sets out to explore why protests turns more violent in some post-war subnational areas compared to others. I suggest that protest violence in part can be explained by the preceding intensity of insurgent violence, as the government puts more efforts into combating insurgent groups and less towards responding to local needs where this violence is perpetuated. Where this occurs, institutional relationships deteriorate, which result in negotiations becoming less likely while violence is viewed as more justified and useful before and during protests. Using the structured focused comparison method, I test this theoretical argument by comparing Cali and Barranquilla, two Colombian cities where left-wing ideologies prevail but where protest violence has differed substantially. The evidence, which has been collected through a document analysis and in-depth interviews conducted during two-months of field work in Colombia, provide modest support for the hypothesis that protest violence was more likely where insurgent violence had been prevalent during the war.

    Negotiating parenthood: Experiences of economic hardship among parents with cognitive difficulties2015In: Journal of Intellectual Disabilities, ISSN 1744-6295, E-ISSN 1744-6309, Vol. 19, no 3, p. 215-229Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    People with cognitive difficulties often have scarce economic resources, and parents with cognitive difficulties are no exception. In this article, parents' experiences are put forth and discussed, for example, how does economic hardship affect family life? How do the parents experience support, what kind of strain does the scarce economy put on their situation and how are their children coping? The data consist of interviews with parents living in this often problematic situation. Experiences of poverty and how it can be related to - and understood in the light of - cognitive difficulties and notions of parenthood and children's agency are scarcely addressed in the current research. The findings suggest that experiences of poverty are often associated with the limitations caused by cognitive difficulties. Poverty may thus be articulated as one aspect of the stigma they can experience due to their impairments, not least in relation to their children and naturalized discourses on parenthood.

    Democracy and Neoliberalism in Colombia: A sour blend for Peace?: An analysis of the neoliberal economic and political model for the post-conflict in Colombia2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    By 1990, the process of peacebuilding, which requires addressing the root causes of conflict, was guided by a generally unstated but widely endorsed theory of conflict management: the notion that "liberalization" in post-conflict settings would help to originate the conditions for a stable and lasting peace. Central America was one of the first laboratories of international policies promoting the threefold transformation of ‘democratization, marketization and pacification’ conceived as the "liberal peacebuilding paradigm". The peacebuilding missions were considered a success as they effectively prevented a relapse into war in the region but, serious deficits in the transformation processes - persistent socio-economic inequalities, an explosive crime wave, increasing authoritarianism and political polarization - have continue to threaten Central America as a likely scenario of renewed social conflict. Despite de illusion of "peace and democracy" the peacebuilding efforts have reproduced the very primary conditions that contributed to the outbreak of fighting in the first place, which is clearly contrary to the mission of peacebuilding: “a stable and lasting peace”.  Similarly, the economic and political liberalization projects were urged by international pressure in Colombia in an attempt to achieve a political solution to the armed struggle. However, efforts on implementing the liberal agenda have had questionable results; a 'formal and presidentialist democracy', an exclusive economic model which has further ignited the structural causes of conflict as well as an increased state militarization and emerging patterns of violence reproduction. Both cases analyzed in this research offer a good example of the 'hybrid outcomes' of the model in creating a façade of formal democracies or renew traditional patterns of 'mal-development' and violence.

     

    Liberalism in Colombia does not offer a good example of the supposedly 'pacifying' effects of democratic and economic opening so far, but rather, of a negative form of 'hybrid peace'. The prospects of achieving a 'lasting and stable' peace are being endangered by a new wave of aggressive neoliberal policies and its destabilizing effects as well as their cross-purposes with the prevailing constitutional order. Rather than a peace relying over social consent, it resembles an elite 'pact-making' to preserve the neoliberal state and economic order. If these unstable conditions are not reversed or ameliorated in the event of a final peace agreement, Colombia will probably continue at war but 'by other means'.

     

    Liberal peacebuilding is a double-edged tool. It has the potential to create the political and economic conditions for a lasting and stable peace, yet implementation can reproduce the sources of conflict and prompt a relapse into war. This study will explore through secondary data the triple transformative processes of the liberal model - democratization, marketization and pacification - in the post-war Central American countries, in an endeavor to provide lessons learnt to the current peace process in Colombia. Following the same logic and variables, the study will examine through a review of primary and secondary data the results of liberalization so far and its future prospects for bringing a lasting and stable peace in Colombia. Peace at last?

    Towards Climate Resilient Peace: An Assessment of Climate Change Funding’s in Colombia2022Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    A growing body of scholarship has explored the link between climate change, natural resources and conflict. While considerable interest has been shown in examining how and under what circumstances climate change may increase a country’s risks of conflict, research exploring climate change response initiatives in fragile and conflict-affected contexts remains limited. Drawing from political ecology and ecological security literature, I understand climate resilience to be an intrinsic part of peace. This study explores and empirically tests if climate funding, through natural resource management practices, contributes to social cohesion and reduced environmental stress and, hence, peace. By doing a quantitative subnational analysis based on Colombia, I use a Fixed Effects regression model to test two hypotheses. While statistical evidence shows a positive and statistically significant relationship between climate change funding and negative peace, not enough evidence is found to support the second hypothesis linking it to environmental sustainability (as indicator of positive peace).

    Sexual violence and Security Sector Reform: An investigation into the effect of gender-sensitive security sector reforms on post-conflict sexual violence.2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In the aftermath of conflict, the legacies of war and the remains of militarized security institutions pose a serious danger to the nation and its civilians. When conflicts end, women are generally at high risk of violence, particularly sexual violence. This study investigates the effect of gender-sensitive security sector reforms on levels of post-conflict sexual violence. By introducing the concept of social control, this thesis argues that when state security sectors adopt gender-sensitive security sector reforms (GSSSRs) the socialization process changes as social control is enforced, which increases the costs of committing sexual violence. The hypothesis of this thesis is as follows; Post-conflict sexual violence committed by state security forces will be lower in countries which have adopted gender-sensitive security sector reforms, compared to countries which have not. In order to test this hypothesis a comparative case study using the method of structured focused comparison was applied. The main findings support the hypothesized relation and indicate that GSSSRs do have an impact on the prevalence of post-conflict sexual violence. More research is needed to investigate other causal paths in order to advance this largely understudied research field.

    Political Corruption and Institutional Stability2014In: Studies in comparative international development, ISSN 0039-3606, E-ISSN 1936-6167, Vol. 49, no 3, p. 267-299Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is the first to statistically examine the reciprocal relationship between formal political institutions and political corruption. We argue that political corruption is an informal institution that allows nondemocratic leaders to build political support, act as a substitute for liberalizing concessions in the formal institutions of the state, and thereby extends the longevity of non-democratic regimes. Yet, whereas high corruption level will prevail in nondemocratic regimes, we expect the electoral constituency in democratic regimes to have the formal power to curb political corruption. We demonstrate that these expectations hold by estimating a dynamic multinomial regression model on data for 133 countries for the 1985-2008 period. Our model shows that high-corruption autocracies and hybrid regimes are more stable than their low-corruption counterparts, but that low-corruption democracies are more stable than high-corruption ones. For autocratic and hybrid regimes, the stability is due both to corruption making the formal institutions more resistant to democratization and that the formal institutions prevent reductions in corruption. Consistent democracies, on the other hand, are able to reduce corruption and become more stable as a result.

    Weakening the Enemy: A Disaggregated Study of Violence against Civilians in Africa2014In: Journal of Conflict Resolution, ISSN 0022-0027, E-ISSN 1552-8766, Vol. 58, no 7, p. 1230-1257Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    While case-based narratives from civil wars often stress the ethnic dimension of civilian atrocities, cross-national studies have found limited evidence in support of such contentions. Addressing this debate, we argue that warring actors often use ethnic affiliation to identify groups of suspected enemy supporters when individual wartime affiliations are not known. Since warring actors depend on their civilian constituencies for support, collective targeting of the enemy's co-ethnics becomes a strategy for weakening the enemy's capacity. Armed actors are thus more likely to engage in civilian abuse in areas where the enemy's ethnic constituency resides. To examine this argument, we combine new georeferenced event data on violence against civilians in African conflicts, 1989-2009, with spatial data on the location of the warring actors' ethnic constituencies. The analysis shows that the number of civilians killed by both governments and rebel groups is higher in areas inhabited by the enemy's ethnic constituency.

    One-Sided Violence and External Support: The effects of government one-sided violence on external state support provision2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Previous research on external state support provision has largely focused on the causes of said support, and the effects of external support on conflict dynamics. Limited knowledge exists on the causes of support termination, despite the widely established detrimental effects of external support on conflict duration and intensity. Conducting the first large-N study on rebel support termination, Karlén (2019) makes a first significant contribution to the field, exploring different factors causing support withdrawal. This thesis aims at contributing to the field by exploring one of many possible causes for state support withdrawal; namely state perpetrated one-sided violence. Based on a theoretical framework drawing on theories of cost-benefit analyses and reputation costs, the thesis holds that one-sided violence perpetrated by a government receiving external support in an intrastate armed conflict will increase the probability of the external actor withdrawing support. The conducted logistic regression finds support for the posed hypothesis. Notably, the results indicate that democratic governments are less likely to withdraw support as one-sided violence increases than are more autocratic governments, constituting an interesting avenue for further research.

    Avislamisering och religiös påverkan i det svenska samhället: En studie om tio muslimers praktiserande av Islam2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    What impact does the Swedish society have on the practice of Islam? That is the main topic of this thesis.

    As a result of migration, the distinction between a specific region and a culture or religion has been mixed. Islam is not just part of the Middle East but is more and more institutionalized in the Western, and the Swedish society. Sweden, which is one on the most secular countries in the world, has developed into a country where the view on religion have been privatized. Religion can be practiced, but not in public. This also has an impact on the individual’s practice of Islam.

    To grow up in a society where the Islam is dominated in the public space and migrating to a society where there is little public support for practicing your own religion does in many ways affect the expression of Islam.

    The thesis is based on interviews with ten individuals practicing Islam and living in Sweden,but who have been growing up in different societies. Through the interviews there has emerged a tendency that the visible/outer practice of Islam decreases and the non-visible/inner practice are becoming more apparent. In this thesis this is de-islamisation. For example, praying five times a day is an aspect of Islam that among some of the respondents is less focused on. There is not less of Islam, but the practice of Islam has changed in a way where most of the focus is on the non-visible part of Islam.

    The practice of implementing sustainable ICT practices: The case of the Green IT Audit2015In: Proceedings of the 23rd NORDIC ACADEMY OF MANAGEMENT conference, Copenhagen, 2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    For several decades, Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) have been used by individuals and within organizations in order to increase efficiency. Traditionally, the increased efficiency enabled by ICTs has primarily affected factors such as profitability and time. In recent years, however, ICT has been promoted as an important tool for increasing ecological efficiency, i.e. for sustainability. Although there are several environmental implications related to the ICT sector to take into account, such as the production of electronic waste (e-waste), the extraction of rare earth elements (REEs) and the hazardous production of ICT equipment, the discourse has increasingly shifted towards discussing the positive sides of ICT for sustainability (Author et al., 2014). According to recent reports, the potential of using ICT in order to increase the ecological sustainability of our society is huge. According to GeSI, the Global e-Sustainability Initiative, we will be able to decrease the annual GHG emissions by 9,1 GtCO2e worldwide, as well as creating 29,5 million jobs by using smart solutions enabled by ICT (GeSI, 2008). Some examples of these solutions are digitalization and dematerialization, system integration and process optimization (ibid.) However, as the full potential of smart ICT solutions hinges on that it is implemented and used correctly, we have yet to see the benefits of ICT for ecological sustainability surpass its negative effects (Rattle, 2010).

    By following one initiative for implementing smart ICT solutions in organizations in Sweden, namely the Green IT Audit, we have investigated how the implementation of these sustainable ICT practices takes place in practice (Author, 2013). The Green IT Audit is a consultancy model, developed by TCO Development, which is used to improve the usage of and implement sustainable ICT solutions in organizations. By drawing on practice theory (Schatzki, 1996), this paper explores new ways of explaining how the implementation of sustainable ICT practices could occur. A practice is described by Reckwitz as a “routinised type of behaviour which consists of several elements, interconnected to one another: ... bodily activities, ... mental activities, ‘things’ and their use, a background knowledge in the form of understanding, know-how, states of emotion and motivational knowledge” (2002; p. 249). The routinized way of performing a Green IT Audit in organizations is also constituted by these elements and can thus be declared a practice. Ijab & Molla (2011) suggests that a practice approach provides a “useful lens to garner deeper and holistic understanding of the information systems that organisations develop, deploy, use and integrate for eco-sustainability” (p. 2). What the consultant do and his or her understanding of sustainable ICT will thus affect the way Green IT is explained to the client. In turn, the understanding of the client and their material infrastructure will also affect how the model is implemented in the organization.

    Dangerous elections: A study on electoral violence and clientelism2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Why do some elections spark violence whilst others do not? That is a question that has gained increased interest from scholars during the last few years. However, because of the field’s relative novelty, and despite the vast literature on democratization and civil war, it is still a question that is not fully comprehended. In this thesis, a theory claiming that clientelism should increase the risk of electoral violence is presented. It is argued that clientelism increases the stakes of elections by increasing the costs of losing and the rewards of winning them. This should also increase the risk that electoral violence is employed as a strategy in elections. It is further argued that this relationship should be present both when an incumbent is partaking in the election and when no incumbent does so. It is further argued that violence both prior to and after elections should correlate positively with clientelism. The theory is tested by a series of regression models. It is found that clientelism only has a consistently positive and statistical significant relationship with post-election violence. Furthermore, evidence is found disproving the hypothesis that electoral violence is positively correlated with clientelism regardless of whether an incumbent partakes in the election or not. On the other hand, evidence is found that a condition for the proposed theoretical mechanism is that an incumbent is running for office. The thesis contributes to the knowledge about electoral violence in general, but also to the vast literature on democratization in Africa.

    “Who run the world?”: Comparing Sweden’s international behavior before and after the construction of a feminist foreign policy2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Viewing Sweden’s feminist foreign policy as a paradigmatically feminist and isolated case of domestic identity formulation, this thesis poses the following research question: to what extent does rapid identity construction affect state behavior? It assumes that a feminist state (en)genders the security concept and establishes interests in promoting (en)gendered security – which denotes the positive peace effects from female participation and protection – as an international security norm and thereby gain utility, security and legitimacy. Its constructivist hypothesis claims that the feminist identity has increased Sweden’s international promotion of (en)gendered security. This is tested through a quantitative content analysis of the current feminist and two previous Swedish governments’ promotion of (en)gendered security in the EU’s Common Foreign and Security Policy.

    The statistically significant results show that the feminist government is substantially more likely to promote (en)gendered security externally. The constructivist hypothesis therefore holds in the paper’s two critical settings: its hardline security context and assumption that rapid identity construction immediately affects behavior. The results are thus generalized to the population of identity formulation and confirm the Feminist Foreign Policy as a feminist ideal type, and thereby answer the research question. Overall, these abstract inferences have positive implications for international security.

    Unpacking the Black-Box: How does rebel-government interaction affect the transition to active civil conflict after rebel formation has occurred?2021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Existing research on the causes of civil war fails to capture the complexity of the phenomenon. Explanations for civil war onset emphasize structural conditions to substantiate collective action and neglect that civil conflict originates from state repression and rebel dissidence. By unfolding the black-box assumption, this paper raises the research question of 'how does rebel-government interaction affect the transition to active civil conflict after rebel formation has occurred?' Initial collective action is counteracted with state repression. Ineffective state repression increases rebel strength which applies to both an under- and overestimated response. Increasing strength enables the rebel group to implement additional attacks feeding into a cycle of contentious rebel-government interaction and the dyad transitions to active civil conflict. To overcome weaknesses of null hypothesis significance testing, the theoretical expectations are validated with techniques from machine learning. Using data on 252 rebel-government dyads between 1989 and 2011, the empirical results provide support for the argument that low rebel visibility increases the risk of transition to active civil conflict. Effective state repression is hampered due to an inaccurate estimation of the group's fighting capabilities. The analysis likewise suggests that rebel strength is informed by social networks and income from oil depletion.

    Direkt kontakt med flyktingar: Lägre stöd för högerextrema partier2019Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Flyktingkrisen i Europa har lett till nya politiska skiljelinjer och ökat högerextrema partiers väljarstöd. Medan en hög grad av exponering för flyktingar över tid ökar stödet för högerextrema partier har en direkt kontakt med flyktingar visats minska partiernas väljarstöd. Positiva möten har ökat kollektiva handlingar för att ge stöd åt en minoritetsgrupp medan negativa möten minskat dessa handlingar. Med bakgrund i värdedimensionen GAL/TAN har Allports kontakthypotes undersökts i denna kvantitativa enkätstudie. Kontakthypotesen har testats genom att undersöka positiva och negativa möten med flyktingar och deras samvariation med kollektiva handlingar. Handlingar för och emot flyktingar har likställts med en röst på ett invandringsvänligt respektive ett invandringskritiskt parti. Vänsterpartiet och Miljöpartiet har definierats som invandringsvänliga partier och Sverigedemokraterna som ett invandringskritiskt parti. Då lärare och poliser kontinuerligt möter flyktingar men på skilda premisser har de varit undersökningens analysenheter. Lärare förväntades ha positiva möten och ligga till vänster på GAL/TAN-skalan med en röst på ett invandringsvänligt parti, medan poliser förväntades uppleva negativt laddade möten och ligga till höger genom att rösta på ett invandringskritiskt parti. Resultaten visade att positiva möten samvarierade med en hög andel röster på Vänsterpartiet och Miljöpartiet medan negativt laddade möten samvarierade med ungefär lika hög andel röster på Sverigedemokraterna.

    Forging Connections: Traditional Rituals and Social Reintegration of Ex-Combatants: A qualitative comparison of truth and reconciliation commissions2024Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines the impact of traditional rituals in truth and reconciliation commissions (TRCs) on the social reintegration of ex-combatants in post-conflict societies. Little is known of how traditional rituals can contribute to transitional justice mechanisms in reintegration ex-combatants and this thesis aims to contribute to this by asking How does incorporating traditional ritual in the TRC affect the social re-integration off ex-combatants? I conduct a structured, focused comparison of two TRCs, one in Solomon Islands and one in Timor-Leste, to test the theoretical argument if inclusion of traditional rituals leads to more successful social reintegration of ex-combatants. The empirical findings lend some support to the hypothesis, as the TRC with traditional rituals incorporated had more successful social reintegration of ex-combatants than the TRC without. However, the empirics point to potential alternative explanations that might influence the social reintegration. There are also some limitations in the data available, calling for future research.
