    Lost in Transformation: A critical study of two South African museums2008Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this dissertation Transformation, as understood in South Africa, is investigated in the ‘Natal Museum’ and the ‘Msunduzi Museum Incorporating the Voortrekker Complex’ in terms of socio-political structures, the museum as a place, its collections and displays. I have emphasised the ethnographical perspective and analysed it by using key concepts such as new museology, time, space and place. My research focuses on the perception and mediation by museum staff-members of Transformation which is compared and positioned against South African and international museological theoretical discourses. I further explore the political backdrop to Transformation of South African museums and discuss related problems and aspects such as reconciliation, nation-building and the African Renaissance. Socio-political structures, acts, reports and policy documents are analysed over a long temporal sequence, but focus on the period 1980-2007. The long temporal sequence is a tool to capture the development connected to the museums in space and time and aims to compare and present previous developments in order to investigate how Transformation positioned itself as against the past. I hold that Transformation should be treated as an ongoing process connected to other transformation processes across time. I also propose that Transformation started earlier than previously suggested and that it is not a question of one Transformation but of many transformation processes. The urban landscape and the concept of place and name are explored. My research examines the urban landscape from the establishment of Pietermaritzburg to study how the museums were positioned in the landscape and how this has contributed to associated meanings. The museums are treated as demarcated places in the urban landscape which are named and infused with meaning and ownership. The museums are constituted and acted out within specific socio-political structures. The dissertation suggests that the objectives of Transformation reveal themselves through negotiation and alteration of place and name. My research explores the history of the museum collections – how objects were acquired, classified and used to materialise the museums´ institutionalisation of time and what this brought about for heritage production. I investigate what did and did not change when the museums transformed and I deconstruct the new and old objectives and socio-political ideas of collections. I analyse displays as socio-political spaces, the agent’s appropriation, and the discrepancies within dominant socio-political structures. When Transformation materialises in displays it becomes visible for the public to see. The negotiated displays show how the museum tries to visualise Transformation to the public. The discussion analyses the discussed concepts of Transformation, the structures, place, name, display and collection, and relates these to the concept of time, and to how agents create time and make it visual. I also discuss how museological writing and political speeches shape and negotiate Transformation through their articulation and how they sometimes constrain and form discrepancies to actual reality.

    Challenging Gender Roles within Humanitarian Crisis: Predominant Patriarchal Structures before the Humanitarian Crisis and its Relation to the Identity and Experiences of Women refugees during and after the Humanitarian Crisis. A Case Study of Syria.2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    One purpose of this study is to examine how predominant patriarchal practices can affect the experiences of women refugees. This study also examines how the gender roles and patriarchal practices may change during a conflict. A theoretical framework was constructed to examine the patriarchal practices through radical feminism approach. Also, possible ways of social change within a conflict is examined. Empirically, the Syrian conflict is selected for the case study. In order to answer the research questions, 26 semi-structured interviews were conducted to track any possible social change in the patriarchal practices in Syria during the conflict in comparison to before the conflict. The main two findings of this study are that a change did occur in the patriarchal practices in which women did achieve more freedom and more independence during the conflict in Syria. However, there were increased patriarchal practices when women became refugees outside Syria, in which there was less freedom and less independence for Syrian women, especially the less educated women.

    Kategoriernas dilemman: En kunskapsöversikt om kategorisering utifrån nationellt och etniskt ursprung i offentlig politik och forskning2015Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Kategorier och kategorisering är en ofrånkomlig del av vårt sociala liv. Vi behöver kunna hantera och sortera alla intryck. Relationer i såväl offentliga som privata sammanhang påverkas av föreställda skillnader mellan olika befolkningsgrupper. Det finns goda skäl att anta att diffusa kollektiva identiteter av detta slag kan bilda en grogrund för fördomar och i förlängningen diskriminering. Med denna kunskapsöversikt vill Delmi bidra till att sprida kunskap om hur kategorier som exempelvis ’svensk’ och ’invandrare’ skapas i det offentliga samtalet. Med utgångspunkt i nutida samhällsvetenskaplig forskning söker författarna belysa problematiken kring kategoriseringar, företrädesvis när det gäller (verkliga eller föreställda) skillnader mellan människor på basis av nationellt ursprung och etnisk grupptillhörighet.

    Kunskapsöversikten inbegriper också observationer av hur den svenska staten har bidragit med terminologiska rekommendationer när det gäller klassificering av människor med utländsk bakgrund, och hur detta har gett avtryck i debatten. Kunskapsöversikten ”Kategoriernas dilemman – en kunskapsöversikt om kategoriseringar utifrån nationellt och etniskt ursprung i offentlig politik och forskning”, är skriven av Per Strömblad, docent i statsvetenskap vid Linnéuniversitetet, och Gunnar Myrberg, docent i statsvetenskap vid Uppsala universitet Det är vår förhoppning att rapporten utgör en inspirationskälla för framtida forskning och kan främja kvalitet och allsidighet i den offentliga diskussionen om migrations- och integrationsfrågor i samhället. Kunskapsöversikten är den första inom Delmis temaområde Mångfald, välfärd och legitimitet.

    The Model and Making of Ethnic Federalism in Ethiopia: Identifying the Problems to Find the Solution2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In Ethiopia the idea of ethnic based self-rule came as a result of mistrust of central government. In 1991 the EPRDF government decentralized power and declared self-governing principle and conferred ethnic groups with power. The ethnic Federal Government and the ethnic regional states are not one and the same, and one is not the extension of the other. Even if there is a convergence between the Federal Government and the ethnic regional states, since both make up the strategic components of solving ethnic conflicts on a permanent basis, there are fundamental differences in the power, functions and purposes of ethnic federation and ethnic regions. The fundamental purpose of ethnic Federal Government is to achieve unity and understanding among the constituent ethnic groups. On the other hand, the regional ethno-linguistically defined states are the focal points where one locates primarily the contradiction between competing political and economic interest groups belonging to the same ethnic group. Because of systemic complexity both at the federal and regional levels, ethnic federation is apparently dependent on democratic rules and it requires democracy for its successful accomplishment. Consociationalism is the type of decision making process and mechanism which fits the kind of constitutional structure at the federal level. At the regional level devolution of power can only be a real self-governing exercise if it is based on the principles of democratic governance.

    University Education as a Compensation Strategy Among Second-Generation Immigrants2012In: The international migration review, ISSN 0197-9183, E-ISSN 1747-7379, Vol. 46, no 4, 919-940 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to determine whether immigrants and their children use a compensation strategy that involves achieving higher than expected education, given their parents’ level of education and income. The study uses data for all individuals in Sweden who finished elementary school from 1990 to 1992. Parents’ level of education and income is in general positively associated with higher odds of having university education. However, some immigrant groups show the reverse pattern of the impact of parents’ income. The results support a compensation strategy developed in groups and families with low level of integration in the labor market.

    Formal Education and New Openings for Self-Employment Amongst Foreign-Born Persons in the Swedish Healthcare Sector2016In: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, ISSN 1799-649X, E-ISSN 1799-649XArticle in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study contributes to the discussion on the value of education for self-employment among foreign-born persons in Sweden. The case of the deregulated healthcare sector is used to illustrate the importance of the acknowledgement of unaccustomed types of education with regards to a lack of access to the ordinary labour market and for starting a new business. Register-based data on all individuals in Sweden with an education in healthcare are used in the analysis. The overrepresentation of foreign-born persons amongst newly self-employed people is explained by what type of education they have, that is, a highly educated specialised occupation or educations at high and low levels that are classified as ‘other’ in the register.

    Stuck beyond the deal - Europe for sale at the borders of humanity: Understanding the causes and causalities behind the changes in migration policy of the European Union leading up to the formation of the EU-Turkey Refugee Deal in 2015.2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Since the beginning of the Arab Spring in 2011 and the spillover effect leading to the Syrian Civil War, the European Union has had several new challenges on its path in the field of migration. New policies and measures were adopted in order to manage the situation, including the in 2015 proposed Readmission Agreement with Turkey. The aim of this paper is to understand the changes in migration policy from the European Union through the perspective of an interethnic security dilemma, leading towards the establishment of this deal. Through trend analysis and comparison of policies over time, this thesis seeks to prove that the concept of interethnic security dilemma, build upon existing principles within the realistic school of thought, provides understanding of the logic behind the changes. The thesis contributes to the field of humanitarian action and conflict by providing a different understanding of the factors involved in migration management within the very contemporary context of an ongoing migration crisis. The field of migration management and the policies shaping it, are of essential importance to this already existing humanitarian crisis, and others worldwide. Understanding the driving forces behind it, could possibly provide a new theoretical view on possible alternatives.

    Abstract [en]

    A strenuous hike up Kolsas Mountain on a Saturday afternoon in June 2013. Six hikers navigate a steep trail while discussing their experiences in Norway, ranging from living arrangements to favorite hiking trails and the weather in Oslo. The top of the mountain provides a stunning view of the Oslofjord and surrounding farmland. A ferry starts its journey to Copenhagen while a plane makes its way to Gardermoen international airport. The group eats lunch, poses for pictures, and heads to a second mountaintop. The hike is organized by an Indian IT specialist for Norway International Network (NIN), a social organization for expats and Norwegians. The hike is attended by two IT specialists from Poland and Norway, a Russian doctoral student and two academics who work in the United States. Tuesday night, 6 p.m. at Thon Hotel Opera in downtown Oslo. Approximately 20 women participate in a networking event with gazpacho, risotto, and wraps, followed by a presentation on Internet banking and electronic money transfers. The attendees learn about the intricacies of the Norwegian banking system, and members ask questions about Internet security and transferring money between international bank accounts. After the presentation, the attendees retreat to the hotel bar to discuss the presentation, adjustment difficulties in Oslo, job searches, and career changes. This event was organized by the Association of International Professional and Business Women (AIPBW). A Monday night in October 2012 in an apartment behind Oslo's royal palace. Attendees pay NOK 100 (approximately US$ 15) at the door and place their business card in a transparent nametag holder. They take off their shoes, place a bottle on the kitchen counter, and proceed to the spacious living room. Approximately 25 attendees mingle and nibble on snacks until the Tertulia event commences. 1 The event consists of two short presentations on the public relations industry in Norway and the Oslo Global Mobility Forum, a conference that promotes international talent mobility to Norway. The presenters and attendees discuss the meaning of 'global' in global talent recruitment, and the conversations continue until late at night. The Oslo International Club can look back at a lively event.

    Is Sweden a paradigm of diversity managament in the EU?: A case study on the socio-cultural integration of non white Swedes into Sweden2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis studies how a non-white minority integrates into Swedish society in order to better understand the particularities of Sweden’s immigration model and to see if it is as suitable as it is made out to be in EU circles. It does so through an exhaustive review and cross-examination of existing literature on immigration in Sweden, and by collecting opinions from members of a long established immigrant community: the Eritreans in Sweden. It calls for a more nuanced approach in education and society to issues of race and ethnicity, so that the majority of the population realizes that using and discussing these categories should not be avoided, because they are useful to come to terms with diversity. By not focusing exclusively on economic insertion, but by also placing emphasis on the socio-cultural integration of minority identities, it will point out to the need for more comprehensive integration policies that equate opportunities and chances of non-white Swedes with those of natives and ensure equal access to the labor and housing markets. It contends that ‘top-down’ legislation and systemic implementation of such policies foster feelings of ‘belongingness’ among non-white Swedes, and contribute to the creation of social capital and to the overall peaceful coexistence of Swedes of different cultural backgrounds.

    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    The purpose of this study is to examine how Greece’s migration system functions and how immigration and asylum policies manifest themselves during the countries current severe economic crisis. More precisely, examining how the regulatory framework and policies regarding refugees' and migrant situation effects practical implementation. The research questions raised are; - How are refugees and other migrants' rights in Greece respected, from a legal, political and moral perspective? What impact can racism have on the treatment of refugees and other migrants? A contextual analysis of ideas through an analysis of the political programs/agendas was used and contrasted, through theories concerning racism, nationalism and globalization to further nuance the situation concerning refugees' rights. Furthermore the study is analyzed through a HR perspective or more precisely through relevant conventions, regulations and EU directives. The conclusions are that Greece has laws and policies regarding migration, however these regulations have major flaws concerning their practical outcome. Improvements have been made to the migration system constituted of new government agencies intended to meet EU-standards, concerning the management of the asylum process. Unfortunately these improvements have been found wanting. Globalization is challenging the national and regional laws. EU and its regulations concerning asylum, does not take into account differentiated contextual realities concerning EU´s member states. People generally intend to travel through Greece and are consequently sent back to Greece by other EU states, without significant support it becomes problematic to handle this volume of people. The European Union’s protectionist policies create barriers and make access to the region more difficult, meanwhile people of other nationalities flee or migrate in hope of a more secure and humane existence. With xenophobia on the rise (both politically and socially) migrants face further difficulties, for instance fear of deportation can make the reporting of hate crimes to the authorities complicated to say the least.

    Abstract [en]

    In this article I argue that there is a desperate need of Sámi LED research and education. I discuss Swedenand Swedish academia from a decolonial perspective. The question regarding Sámi representationin academia – in research and education – or rather the void of representation and its consequences isdiscussed along with the colonial scientific paradigm of continued exploitation. The article ends with a sketchof a Manifesto for Sámi related and Sámi led research. The article is based on my own experiences andconversations with others in Swedish and international academia, Indigenous scholars and activists, as wellas interviews and conversations from 2004 and until today. Methodological and theoretical approaches aretaken from Indigenous Methodologies/Theories/Studies, Feminist Technoscience and a historical researchtradition called “ego-histoire”.

    Human Bodies and the Forces of Nature: Technoscience Perspectives on Hydropower Dams, Safety, Human Security, Emotions and Embodied Knowledges2016In: International Journal of Technoscience and Development, ISSN 2001-2837, Vol. 1, no 1, 1-14 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Hydropower has commonly been promoted as an environmentally friendly and renewable energy resource. Despite this, the major negative social and ecological impacts on the environment and its local inhabitants have been well established for a long time, as well as the high risks for large-scale disasters caused by hydropower dam failures. Drawing on a qualitative study that focuses on the Lule River in Sweden, this article analyses the cultural politics of emotions with regard to dams, reservoirs, safety and human security.

    Annually between one and two major dam failures occur around the world, with major consequences for human and non-human lives, the environment and the economy, and the issue has been addressed in policy making and within the work of power companies since the 1970’s. However, more people die due to accidents on dams and reservoirs than due to dam failures. In Sweden, the number of hydropower regulation related deaths within the demographically small municipality of Jokkmokk, where a major part of Sweden’s hydropower is being produced, is on average 0,02 per cent per year, or 1-2 persons, which would correspond to 180-360 deaths in the Swedish capital Stockholm. Yet, there are no calls for inquiries, investigations and measurements to ensure public safety around dams in Sweden. Linking these two aspects on hydropower dams and safety through the concept of human security we identify a void of understanding and valuing the importance of humans’ – operators - lived experiences and invested emotions in the work to avoid dam failures, accidents on the reservoirs and loss of lives. We address the fact that the operators live and are related to the inhabitants of the regulated Lule River and what role this may play in enhanced human security.

              We argue that technical reports and studies on dam safety are written in a way that invokes false emotions of control, safety and security for inhabitants as well as political decision makers. New technologies for camera surveillance and monitoring provide opportunities to assemble data on a dam and the water flowing through it (seepage), with the purpose to enhance safety. However, we suggest that these systems actually may produce false emotions of safety and security, reinforcing a paradigm of perceived control of nature’s forces and thereby may contribute to decreased safety and human security.

    Mångfaldens dilemman: Boendesegregation och områdespolitik2015 (ed. 1)Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    BAKSIDESTEXT:

    Som en följd av kriget i Syrien och andra konflikter har flyktingströmmarna till och genom Europa vuxit dramatiskt, med stora sociala, ekonomiska och politiska konsekvenser för såväl EU som Sverige. I den här boken behandlas flyktingrelaterade frågor men huvudtemat är mer långsiktiga frågor om boendemönster, segregation och utsatta bostadsområden, och hur de senaste decenniernas ökade närvaro av etniska minoriteter aktualiserar frågor kring strukturell underordning, diskriminering på bostadsmarknaden, kulturell praxis, och nya former för anti-segregationspolitik.

    Detta är den ena av två böcker på temat ”mångfaldens dilemman” som Gleerups publicerar parallellt. Böckerna baseras på ett forskningsprogram som har bedrivits vid Institutet för bostads- och urbanforskning (IBF) vid Uppsala universitet och som har delfinansierats av forskningsrådet Forte. Systervolymen har titeln Mångfaldens dilemman. Medborgarskap och integrationspolitik.

    Bokens författare har sin hemvist i olika samhällsvetenskapliga discipliner – kulturgeografi, nationalekonomi, socialantropologi, sociologi och statsvetenskap – vilket illustrerar den stora bredd av frågor som forskningen står inför inom de politiskt brännbara fälten migration, integration och segregation.

    Boken vänder sig till praktiker, politiker, forskare, studenter och andra som intresserar sig för frågor om boendesegregation och områdespolitik.
