    'Women are power, they are roots, they are everything': How entrepreneurial identity enables economic empowerment from microloans2020Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study adds new knowledge to the understanding of the usefulness of microcredit as a means to empower poor women. Using theory on women’s entrepreneurial identity, this study elucidates the functioning of such an identity to the entrepreneurship and of the social mechanisms of importance to attaining such an identity, that enable women to establish an income generating business, from microloans. Through a comparison of women entrepreneurs with greater success and women entrepreneurs with less success respectively, this paper explains how an entrepreneurial identity is constructed through influence of network and an ability to respond to social and gendered norms and expectations by women entrepreneurs, which enables them to successfully pursue microenterprises in Arusha, Tanzania.

    Mobilizing and educating via social media: How do Swedish trade unions use YouTube?2015Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Trade unions have faced a significant problem of member decline for several decades even in the countries with the traditionally high union membership. The use of social media has been proposed as important revitalization strategy which allows reaching to new audiences. The purpose of this study is to examine how different Swedish trade unions have accomplished this task by investigating and assessing their use of YouTube. We expect that the represented social class: working, white-collar or upper-middle-class, influences how unions use social media. Results based on a quantitative and qualitative analysis of numerous YouTube videos demonstrate that working class unions use YouTube for mobilization, while white-collar unions focus more on existing members and upper middle class unions aim to educate their own profession. All unions also use YouTube for improving the transparency of the organizations by posting a significant number of videos about annual congresses, as well as promote the traditional labor movement issues such as salaries, equality and welfare.

    The concept of Political Reintegration in current peace research2013Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    A large component of peacebuilding efforts today are the Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR) programs that target ex-combatant poulations, in an attempt to smooth the transition to civilian life and alleviate security risks in the transition phase. Research that today deals with the political aspect of reintegration has only done so in a rather limited and under-theorized fashion, and it is usually unclear why certain aspects have been chosen over others to represent political reintegration. I would argue that this limited conceptual understanding of what political (re)integration means has impaired research within this field. For instance, when political reintegration has been investigated there has not been a systematic identification and differentiation based on the level of analysis. This paper scrutinizes definitions of political reintegration both within the policy community and the academic community, clarifying what level of analysis is applied. Finally, this paper suggests that we need to explore political reintegration (at the micro level) in terms of two dimensions: the extent of ex-combatants’ political voice (i.e. political involvement) and the content of the ex-combatants’ political voice (i.e. democratic values and norms). Bringing conceptual clarification to the concept of political reintegration also helps us identify additional research agendas within this field.
