    Path to Dominance - Disaggregating Intra-rebel Conflict between Parent and Splinter Group in Separatist Insurgency: Case Study of Moro National Liberation Front - Moro Islamic Liberation Front in the Philippines, and Karen National Union - Democratic Karen Buddhist Army in Burma2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Common beliefs posit that rebel fragmentation and the emergence of splinter groups are often associated with intra-rebel violence. However, empirical evidence suggests that it is not always the case: there are cases of non-lethal competition between parent and splinter groups across time and terrain. This study explores the cause of lethal and non-lethal conflict between parent and splinter group that represent ethno-nationalist identity. By using theories of rational choice and outbidding strategy, I argue that lethal intra-rebel conflict are less likely when there is a balanced distribution of power between parent and splinter groups, subsequent to organizational fragmentation. This is because intra-rebel conflict against formidable opponents is costly. Further, it presents an existential threat in the event of counterinsurgency or retaliation. Thus, it is expected that rebel groups are more likely to employ non-lethal outbidding strategy in order to become the sole representation of their ethnic group. Using the method of structured focused comparison, this hypothesis is tested by comparing Moro insurgencies in Philippines and Karen insurgencies in Burma. The main finding demonstrates partial support to the causality of distribution power to the lethality of outbidding strategies. In addition, the empirical analysis also shows state intervention and social ties as influencing lethal intra-rebel conflict.

    Giftskåpet: Praktik och princip2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is to examine the historical use of "poison cabinets", or restricted shelves, in Swedish libraries. Drawing upon the theories of Mary Douglas and Michel Foucault, it also seeks to sketch a cultural and ideological context of the practice; with the emphasis on social or mental hygiene, and disciplinary aspects. Through qualitative interviews as well as digitalized recordings of librarians active during the first half of the 20th century, actual examples of poison cabinets are presented. A closer examination is conducted of past collections at Lund University Library, and two large public libraries situated in Växjö and Sigtuna. The essay also investigates views on library censorship, controversial literature, and other related subjects reflected in th elibrary press during the period 1916-1979. In summary, the researched material suggests a historically widespread use of restricted collections, although the objectives of its use differ depending on library function. While the collection at Lund University Library appears to have been the result of state censorship, and is associated with the obligation to preserve materials imposed on legal deposit libraries, public libraries' poison cabinets have had a stronger connection to an educational reading culture. As such, public libraries' main concerns have been less about bad books, more about easy-to-corrupt patrons. The study is a two-year master's thesis in Library and Information Science written at Uppsala University.

    Is Winter Coming?: The Effect of Consistent Patron-States on Territorial Conflicts Becoming Frozen2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Of the territorial intra-state conflicts around the world, there are some that live in the ‘no war, no peace’ environment. The so-called frozen conflicts have attracted significant scholarly and policy attention to explain their durability over time, and sustainability of the de facto regimes that live within such environment. This study shifts the focus from looking at the frozen state of the conflict to improving the understanding of how they become frozen in the first place. My question: ‘why do some territorial conflicts become frozen while others do not?’ sheds light on consistent-patron action during wartime to explain how, through the establishment of trade, territorial conflicts become frozen. Additional novel contributions are provided by conceptualizing patron-state support and focusing on trade as part of state-building mechanisms. A structured, focused comparison with a most-similar case design compares Nagorno-Karabakh Republic and Republika Srpska Krajina conflicts. My findings show partial support to the tested hypotheses that indicate a consistent patron-state’s trade establishment with de facto regime leads to frozen conflict. Empirical limitations within the cases limit the ability to draw stronger conclusions.

    Capturing the Environmental Impact of Individual Lifestyles: Evidence of the Criterion Validity of the General Ecological Behavior Scale2018In: Environment and Behavior, ISSN 0013-9165, E-ISSN 1552-390X, Vol. 50, no 3, p. 350-372Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Do behavioral measures of ecological lifestyles reflect actual environmental impact? Three convenience samples of German adults (N = 881) completed such a measure, the General Ecological Behavior (GEB) scale. Their household electricity consumption was self-reported (Study 1), assessed by a smart-meter (Study 2), or reported by the power company (Study 3). The latter two studies controlled for income, which can boost consumption just as it opens possibilities for behaving ecologically. Within and across studies, analyses revealed a negative association between self-reported ecological behavior and electricity consumption (-.18 rs -.22), even with adjustment for income. Furthermore, customers in a green electricity program reported more ecological engagement and consumed one third less electricity than did regular customers. These results indicate the criterion validity of the GEB scale for a highly practically relevant criterion and encourage the use of generic behavior measures in efforts to understand and foster more ecological lifestyles.

    The Impact of Security Forces’ Behavior on Levels of Organized Violence after Security Sector Reform: A qualitative study of rural provinces in Burundi2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The thesis explores the understudied subject of provincial variations in outcomes after

    Security Sector Reform, by examining how security forces’ behavior affect organized

    violence provincially. By contributing to research on organized violence and peacebuilding

    focusing on SSR with a regional focus, the thesis seeks an answer to why there is organized

    violence in some provincial areas but not others, after the initiation of a SSR program? Based

    on theories of state repression, it is hypothesized that security forces’ abusive behavior leads

    to higher levels of organized violence. Further, based in counterinsurgency literature, I

    theoretically develop that security forces’ participation in post-conflict reconstruction

    decreases levels of organized violence. The study tests these hypotheses by employing

    structured focus comparisons and process tracing of four provinces in Burundi during 2004-

    2014. The study finds partial support for both hypotheses. In some cases abusive behavior

    have escalated organized violence, and in some cases reconciling behavior decrease organized

    violence. The causal path suggests, beyond the level of trust and distrusts in society and

    towards security forces, other factors to correlate and perhaps condition the relationships.

    What is Qualitative in Qualitative Research2019In: Qualitative Sociology, ISSN 0162-0436, E-ISSN 1573-7837, Vol. 42, no 2, p. 139-160Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    What is qualitative research? If we look for a precise definition of qualitative research, and specifically for one that addresses its distinctive feature of being “qualitative,” the literature is meager. In this article we systematically search, identify and analyze a sample of 89 sources using or attempting to define the term “qualitative.” Then, drawing on ideas we find scattered across existing work, and based on Becker’s classic study of marijuana consumption, we formulate and illustrate a definition that tries to capture its core elements. We define qualitative research as an iterative process in which improved understanding to the scientific community is achieved by making new significant distinctions resulting from getting closer to the phenomenon studied. This formulation is developed as a tool to help improve research designs while stressing that a qualitative dimension is present in quantitative work as well. Additionally, it can facilitate teaching, communication between researchers, diminish the gap between qualitative and quantitative researchers, help to address critiques of qualitative methods, and be used as a standard of evaluation of qualitative research.

    The Social Contract of Live Streaming: A Case Study of Four Streams on Twitch.tv2022Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis asks how unique and different communities are formed and facilitated on the live-streaming platform Twitch.tv. Twitch was chosen for its relevance to gaming culture as well as its higher number of users comparatively to its contemporaries. This was done by applying the Social Contract Theory, a philosophy based on the individual’s relationship with a governing state and why a person would choose to give up their freedom for safety. The philosophers Thomas Hobbes, John Locke and Jean Rousseau form the theoretical background, as well as influence the end results. The application of The Social Contract as an ideology by David Gauthier was also used as a tool to categorize and understand the complex relationships at play. For the study, a nethnographical approach was chosen, where we as researchers took a passive, observatory role by viewing four different variety gaming communities on Twitch, those being the streams of users xQcOW, CohhCarnage, 39daph and Forsen. While doing so we did not engage in chat, nor did we let our participants know of their participation in the study. An ethical evaluation was made around this fact and it was deemed ethical through a netnographic framework, produced by Robert V Kozinets. We immersed ourselves in the listed streams for two hours each during the month of May, while taking notes of the different interactions between the streamer and their community. This was done to give us the necessary data to determine the stream's explicit and implicit rules and how they are enforced, so that in the end we could categorize each community's unique Social Contract. This method was deemed a success after an analysis of the recorded data made it possible for us to define the Social Contracts at play in each of the communities, by viewing them through the philosophers’ different lenses as well as comparing them to one another. By doing so, it could be seen that all four of our streamers could be connected to Lockian theory, with their varying focus on cooperation and protection of property. Each community would also have differing relationships with their explicit and implicit rules, like CohhCarnage’s Hobbesian perspective on authority being valued highly comparatively to Forsen’s disregard for it. We believe that this method of research can be easily replicated by others, and that this research can support future endeavors in the fields of netnography, live-streaming communities and Social Contract Theory on Social Media platforms.

    Children in Conflict: Assessing the Impact of UN Targeted Sanctions on Rebel Groups' Recruitment of Child Soldiers2024Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Sanctions are becoming an increasingly utilised tool for peacemaking and consequently, it is of importance to analyse its possible consequences. This paper aims to analyse the possible covariation between UN-targeted sanctions and the recruitment of children by rebel groups. The purpose is to answer the research question: How do UN-targeted sanctions impact rebel groups' recruitment of child soldiers? Based on rational choice theory and a consideration of previous literature, it is hypothesised that imposing UN-targeted sanctions against a rebel group increases the likelihood that said rebel group will increase their recruitment of child soldiers. Utilising a qualitative research method, including a structured focused comparison, the rebel groups UNITA and FARC were selected for empirical analysis based on Mill's method of difference. The empirical analysis finds some support for the proposed theoretical argument in the case of UNITA but conflicting evidence regarding FARC indicates that the proposed causal mechanism requires further research.

    Empowering Smallholder Farmers to Achieve Food Sovereignty Through Soil-Less Agriculture2022Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores the question of how soil-less agriculture through hydroponics, aeroponics, and aquaponics can empower smallholder farmers to achieve food sovereignty as portrayed in documentaries. It addresses the power imbalance between large corporations and smallholder farmers in the traditional agriculture industry. Documentary research approach is used to understand the various applications and research aspects of soil-less agriculture from around the world. Real-life examples from different countries where these methods have been successfully implemented in the agriculture industry, ranging from large industrial settings to smallholder farmers in disadvantaged communities, are analyzed. Further, content analysis is done on these documents by constructing a matrix that combines the process of empowerment and the six pillars of food sovereignty to analyze the different forms of empowerment. The study also investigates how the use of soil-less agriculture can build capabilities through enhanced “well-being freedom” and “agency freedom” and empower smallholder farmers to achieve food sovereignty.

    Engagement between diverse SOGIESC and humanitarian actors for inclusive protection: The case of Lebanon2023Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Practitioners and academics agree that greater engagement between local diverse SOGIESC (sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and sex characteristics) actors (LDSA) and international humanitarian actors (IHA) is needed to make humanitarian responses more inclusive. Despite sector-wide commitments to inclusion and localization, there is a persistent uncertainty about how to meaningfully engage with each other, particularly in insecure contexts.

    As a starting point for researching this form of engagement, this thesis investigates the current inter-organizational engagement (IOE) between LDSAs and IHAs in the insecure Lebanese context and its implications for inclusive protection. By interviewing staff from the two key stakeholders this study examines challenges to diverse SOGIESC inclusion, their understanding of meaningful engagement, and the current dynamics of this IOE. The single case of Lebanon was chosen because the contrast between relatively visible LGBTIQ+ organizing and the legal, social, and political discrimination against LGBTIQ+ communities provides a unique avenue to explore the research problem.

    The study found multiple obstacles to diverse SOGIESC inclusion and asymmetrical dynamics of IOE. The former included a lack of diverse SOGIESC expertise and integration, attitudinal barriers, and inadequate funding. The latter focused on power imbalances grounded in funding and control mechanisms as impediments to meaningful engagement. Based on the findings, lessons learned for more meaningful IOE were identified, including mutual capacity-building, context-sensitive diverse SOGIESC trainings, greater prioritization and adequate funding as well as creating engagement opportunities, shifting power to LDSAs, taking safety precautions and an intersectional queer approach.

    Promoting tourism education in elementary and secondary schools: An experience from Colombia2020In: Journal of Hospitality, Leisure, Sport & Tourism Education, E-ISSN 1473-8376, Vol. 26, article id 100244Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This ‘reflective practice’ presents and critically describes the case of the “Schools for Tourism” (CAT), a case of promoting tourism and tourist culture in Colombian public schools through early vocational training, reporting the idea, development, outreach, and achievements of this program, as this initiative has experienced significant growth over the last few years. The methodology to this paper is of qualitative nature, i.e. primary literature sources as well as a focus group with high-school students and in-depth interviews with initiators of the project were carried out. Appraisals on the ground suggest that teachers' enthusiasm and commitment are primary factors driving the success of this kind of tourism and hospitality training programs, as is the support given to the teachers implementing CAT. More funding (in form of college scholarships or loans) would be very welcome. While the program's benefits are more than clear to all of the stakeholders, a thorough evaluation is still to be carried out so as to fully assess the benefits but also the weaknesses of the program.

    A NEW FRAME FOR SUSTAINABLE HERITAGE ASSESSMENT: A Case Study of Biosphere Tourism2020Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This project considers a new frame for tangible cultural heritage sustainability assessment that is based on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. For that, we use a methodology of literature research and doing a case study of Biosphere Tourism, a certification company for sustainable tourism entities and destinations. The literature research considers past and present certification programs, the concept of sustainability assessment - how it was born and the different methods that currently exist -, and how heritage can be related to tourism and sustainability. It is also seen how tourism exploitation's impacts on tangible cultural heritage can be shown in many different forms. For the case study, the key points for the Biosphere assessment method are explained, and we can see how their method is framed on both the 17 SDGs and the theory of the three pillars of sustainability. Also, we examine some examples and strategies of what destinations assessed by Biosphere have done to improve their cultural heritage, and examples of cultural heritage entities assessed by them. During this project, we find out that there is a lack of research on the matter of cultural heritage in relation to sustainability assessment. We conclude by proposing a new frame for cultural heritage assessment, a minimum criterion that should be followed when assessing a cultural heritage entity, so as to ensure that there is a base from which we can grow and develop sustainably. we examine some examples and strategies of what destinations assessed by Biosphere have done to improve their cultural heritage, and examples of cultural heritage entities assessed by them.

    The quality of governance peace: Governance perceptions and sustaining peace2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Quality of Government (QoG) peace is a concept gaining some traction alongside more known concepts such as the democratic peace, or liberal (capitalist) peace or the globalist/modernist peace. This study aims to uncover how perceptions of governance quality uncover variation in the number of violent and nonviolent collective and interpersonal events at the sub-national level in Nepal. National survey data is used to operationalise the mechanisms for quality of governance perceptions which are then aggregated at District level. In-country elite level interviews were also completed in order to trace the process in the causal mechanism and control for reverse causality. Results point to a strong negative effect between perceptions of governance quality and the number of events occurring. There was not, however, any causal relationship established between perceptions of governance quality and the ratio of violent to non-violent events. Instead, interviewees related the resort to violence as coming about more strongly from a committed leadership of protest movements (or lack thereof) and moves by the State to instigate violence through repressive tactics against protest events.

    COMPARING THE FORECASTING PERFORMANCE OF VAR, BVAR AND U-MIDAS2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    ThispaperaimstocomparetheforecastingperformanceofthewidelyusedVARandBayesian VAR model to the unrestricted MIDAS regression. The models are tested on a real-time macroeconomic data set ranging from 2000 to 2015. The variables are mixed frequency data, specifically, predictions are made for GDP, using economic tendency indicator, unemployment and inflation as predicting variables. The baseline model of this analysis is a simple VAR, while it has great flexibility, this model risks to overfit the data and as a consequence makes unreliablepredictions. TheVillaniBayesianVARismeanttosolvethisproblembyintroducing long run beliefs about the data structure and the steady state unconditional means of each series.

In this scenario, the unrestricted MIDAS model addresses this problem without losing high frequency information. The results show how both BVAR and U-MIDAS outperform VAR at every horizon, while there is no absolute winner among BVAR and U-MIDAS. Evidence suggests that U-MIDAS is superior for short horizons, specifically up to the 5th step ahead, which corresponds to one year and a quarter.

    THE REVOLUTION WILL (NOT) BE NEGOTIATED: CIVIL RESISTANCE AND NEGOTIATIONS WITH AUTHORITARIAN REGIMES2022Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Scholars that study civil resistance mainly focus on factors that explain success or democratisation yet overlook what shapes an important link between the two: negotiations. This study asks why some civil resistance movements enter extensive negotiations with the regime while others do not and argues that the decision to negotiate in nonviolent campaigns is a function of a movement’s organisational capacity. Civil resistance movements with highorganisational capacity present fewer transaction costs for the regime and face fewer in-group constraints for entering negotiations. Thus, civil resistance movements with high organisational capacity are more likely to enter and conduct extensive negotiations with the regime. I test thehypothesised relationship through a structured, focused comparison of the Hirak in Algeria in 2019/2020 and the Sudanese Revolution in 2018/2019, relying on data collected through news wire reports. I find support for the hypothesis that organisational capacity matters for the scope of negotiations. However, the empirical evidence points towards the importance of the ability to shift tactics besides transaction costs and in-group constraints. Overall, this study presents a new theoretical framework, insights into the Algerian and Sudanese nonviolent campaigns and their negotiation processes and practical recommendations for civil resistance movements.

    Sanitet i informell bosättning: En intervjustudie om förändringsprocessen vid införandet av ny sanitetslösning i Kibera2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Access to sanitation is a human right and a prerequisite for life and health. Despite that millions of people worldwide lives without adequate sanitation. The aims of this thesis is to study how the sanitary situation in informal settlements might look like and how the situation is perceived by the residents, as well as how it is possible to improve the situation. By conducting an interview study in the informal settlement of Kibera in the capital of Kenya, Nairobi, the residents got to give their own view of how they experience the sanitary problems and how the implementation of the sanitary solution Peepoo was conducted in the area. In this thesis the change itself is in the centre and Kurt Lewin's theory of change is used as theoretical tool. With this tool the informants' answers were analysed to see how the process of introducing Peepoo proceeded, and what forces drove and hindered the change. It emerged that a successful way to implement such a change is by reducing the resistance through information, both from formal and informal channels. It is also important that there are clear incentives to implement the change, both directly perceptible and from a longer perspective.

    Flyttningar och bostadsefterfrågan som en effekt av separationer: En analys av separationer under 2014 i Gävle kommun2021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Kunskap saknas om sammanboendes separationer och flyttningar och effekterna på efterfrågan på bostäder. I uppsatsen undersöks betydelsen av faktorer som kön, socioekonomisk ställning, vårdnad av barn samt sammanboendets längd haft på flyttningarna. Dessutom undersöks hur separationen har påverkat boendekarriären. Möjligheter att få fram uppgifter om sammanboende och separationer från folkbokföringen är begränsade. Genom tillgång till data för Gävle kommun från registerdatabasen Geosweden har sammanboendes separationer i kommunen ändå kunnat studeras. Totalt har 1 055 personer som separerat efter att ha varit sammanboende som gifta eller sambor analyserats. Genom bland annat logistisk regression har konstaterats att kön och vård av barn påverkar flyttning och bostadsefterfrågan. Däremot är det inte lika tydligt med påverkan från socioekonomisk ställning och längden på sammanboendet. Separationerna har inneburit steg nedåt i boendekarriären speciellt för yngre kvinnor som före separationen bott i ägda bostäder. Många flyttar till hyresrätter i samband med separationen. Det är av stor betydelsen av att det finns tillgång till hyresrätter till överkomliga priser och i varierande storlekar i kommunens olika områden som snabbt kan förmedlas till de som separerar. Att inte kunna genomföra en önskad separation kan innebära stora psykiska påfrestningar för de inblandade inte minst om det finns barn i familjen. Enligt överslagsbedömningar krävs 300 till 400 bostäder för att möta separerandes behov varje år.

    Vaför så stor andel ensamhushåll i Sverige?: En analys av enpersonshushållen i Sverige och deras utveckling2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen handlar om enpersonshushållen, deras utveckling och vilka samband denna utveckling har med andra variabler för samhällsutvecklingen. Syftet är att öka kunskapen kring hushållsutvecklingen för att ge underlag för en bättre planering av samhället. Uppsatsen bygger på bearbetning och analys av allmänt tillgängliga registerdata från webbdatabaser. I uppsatsen uppmärksammas teorierna om andra demografiska transitionen och det konstateras att Sverige ligger, tillsammans med övriga nordiska länder, tidigt i denna utveckling. För Sveriges har dock utvecklingen bromsats upp och de för transitionen karaktäristiska variablerna har de senaste åren i huvudsak inte förändrat sig. Studierna av sambanden mellan andel enpersonshushåll och andra variabler har gjorts genom att med multivariat regressionsanalys ta fram korrelationen mellan kommunernas utfall för olika variabler och kommunens andel enpersonshushåll. Starkast samband med andel ensamhushåll har andel befolkning i olika åldersgrupper. Andra tydliga samband är de mellan andel ensamhushåll och hög andel smålägenheter och hyresrätter samt hög bruttolön och utbildningsnivå. Däremot konstateras svagt samband med andel befolkning med utländsk bakgrund och kommunernas tätortsgrad. Avslutningsvis redovisas i uppsatsen olika analyser som bedöms angelägna för att förbättra kunskapsunderlaget kring hushållsbildning.

    Timber, Drugs or Gold: The Podium for Conflict Related Sexual Violence: A qualitative study on the impact of lootable and non lootable resources on conflict related sexual violence2024Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Recent research has identified a correlation between differrent ways of exploiting natural resources and the occurrence of conflict-related sexual violence. In a quantitative study, extortion showed to have a high correlation with instances of conflict-related sexual violence, but the study lacked evidence for a causal relationship. Lootability has shown to have a great impact on a multiple dynamics of armed conflict, but are lacking research on its impact on conflict-related sexual violence. The thesis, through a qualitative study of the rebel groups ADF in Uganda and FNL in Burundi, offers a combined perspective on the strategic and opportunistic use of sexual violence in conflicts tied to natural resource exploitation. Through a structured focused comparison, this thesis aims to bridge the gap of lootability as a potential explanatory model for CRSV and add on a causal mechanism identifying as to why extortion correlates with CRSV. Case studies provide some support for the hypothesis, but the evidence is not robust enough to draw definitive conclusions. This highlights the need for more detailed research into how specific characteristics of natural resources impact CRSV.

    Fostering guarantees of non-recurrence: How humanitarian action can strengthen the Colombian post-conflict process2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    After more than 50 years of internal armed conflict, Colombia has entered into a stage of postconflict after a peace agreement was signed in 2016. This process will be challenging for the country, as the conflict has created increased poverty and segregation as well as a lack of opportunities for those that have been affected by the conflict. This thesis collects perceptions of international humanitarian actors working in the Colombian context, and their perception on how humanitarian action can be used to strengthen the Colombian post-conflict process. Through a theoretical standpoint of Institutionalization Before Liberalization (IBL) theory by Roland Paris (2004), the findings were collected. Key findings include the need to recognize the humanitarian needs in Colombia despite the conflict ending, the importance of building knowledge in society about the peace agreement and make room for transition of experience and knowledge from the humanitarian field to the government and development actors.

    Analysing the findings, it shows that Colombia’s current peace transition would be furthered by strengthening the nation’s institutions and making long-term strategies on how to create electoral and societal systems that would unite and reconcile the population. It also shows that while the IBL theory is applicable to the Colombian post-conflict process, it fails to capture educational components that are deemed essential by the interviewed organizations. The thesis concludes that humanitarian organizations should be viewed as pivotal actors for the implementation of the Colombian peace agreement and that the Colombian government and international donors needs to put aside long-term resources and time to create a post-conflict society that will foster guarantees of the armed conflict not returning to Colombia.

    ”The digital beast is out of its box”: Om inställningar till digital teknik inom filmarkiv2010Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this two years master's thesis is to examine the attitudes amongst archivists of moving images towards the digital transition in the field of film/moving images. The attitudes within the field of film archivists towards digital technology and the digital transition have consequences for the ways in which digital technology is used for access, preservation, restoration and projection of film within archives of film or moving images.

    The theoretical and methodological foundation is inspired by Norman Fairclough’s critical discourse theory. A number of articles from the film/moving image archival journals Journal of Film Preservation and The Moving Image are analysed.

    The field of archives of film and moving images is proposed to form an order of discourse, as used in the theory of critical discourse. This order is challenged by the advent of the digital. Structures and typical patterns of the discourses within the film archive world are described and restructuring tendencies are stressed. Giovanna Fossati’s From grain to pixel is used as a valuable source, above all for its background on film theory and archival practice. Like the work of Fossati this analysis illustrates how different ontological assumptions on film are reflected in different attitudes towards digital technology.

    The study also makes clear how the archival order of discourse is based on the materiality of the film artefact. Concepts like originality and authenticity are tied to this material artefact. A paradigm shift from artefact to disembodied content is proposed in the articles and is even seen as inevitable, but the digital transition is also described as forming a threat to the existing activities in the field of film archiving and to the analogue film.

    The digital transition leads to a discussion of the identity of the film archive and attempts to define the core of it. The museum, the library and the archive are used in the articles as concepts to advocate mediation, access or preservation. Digital technology is associated with broader and increased access to collections held in film archives and is seen as a possibility to facilitate the access to the collections for scholars and the public and contributing to an enriched film culture. This view is contrasted to a more sceptical standpoint that advocates the authentic film experience defined by the dark room, the group experience and the projection of analogue film or a presentation mediated by the film museum.

    Abstract [en]

    This is a two years master’s thesis that studies five libraries. The purpose with the paper was to look at a specific material and study how it expresses itself around the architecture of the buildings, an if the descriptions were different depending on the library, public library or university library. 

    The conclusion is that the ways of describing the library buildings have varied; depending on one part time and one part evolution. The way library buildings look and have been used has changed over time also, and as well how people perceive and talk, or in this case write about them.

    The exchange programme between new and different partners, Royal University of Bhutan and Uppsala University2020In: 2020 IEEE Frontiers in Education Conference (FIE), 2020Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This WiP paper discusses difficulties, but also gains, in starting new collaborations, mainly when the universities differ: different natures of their strengths and weaknesses, acting in different contexts and having different international recognitions. At the same time, it is the differences that make exchanges fruitful and opens for new learning experiences. An example of such a collaboration between asymmetric partners can be found in the Department of Information Technology, Uppsala University, Sweden and College of Science and Technology, Royal University of Bhutan.
