    The Origin of White Collar Criminality?: Exploring a Gene x Environment Interaction Hypothesis2018In: International Journal of Criminology and Sociology, E-ISSN 1929-4409, E-ISSN EISSN 1929-4409, Vol. 7, p. 196-205Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim for this article is the elementary question: why does white collar criminals become white collar criminals? The answer is a hypothetical syllogistic constructed hypothesis for further empirical exploration in the agenda. The hypothesis takes its point of departure in biosocial criminology, especially the gene-environment interplay, focused on white collar criminality. The hypothesis proposes a link between criminal attitudes and criminal behavior based on how biological (e.g. intergenerational heredity, MAO-A), neurological (e.g. executive functioning, cortical thickness) and social-psychological/sociological factors (e.g. peer-group, rationalizations, social stress, loss of class status) correlates to each other as a system of mechanisms.

    The wealthy white-collar criminals: corporations as offenders2010In: Journal of Financial Crime, ISSN 1359-0790, E-ISSN 1758-7239, Vol. 17, no 3, p. 308-320Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to map out the corporate criminality among the 70 top-ranked corporations in the Swedish business world. It aims to identify properties common for companies that get a decision by a regulatory agency and which kind of properties there are when the regulatory agency goes to a decision.

    Design/methodology/approach – Data on decisions taken against violation (criminal, civil, or administrative) collected from annual reports (1999-2008) presented on the internet by eight regulatory agencies in Sweden. The corporations collected by the internet site “largest companies” and the Swedish business magazine Affärsvärlden (World of Business). The analysis of data were worked out by cross tab, designed as analysis of covariation between one independent variable to one dependent variable, or two or more independent variables (were one or more of them were held invariant to each other) to one dependent variable.

    Findings – Approximately, 60 companies (85.7 per cent) had at least one decision against them during the period 1999-2008, and 28 companies had more than five decisions (court, administrative law, objection or settlement) against them, which means that 40 per cent of the whole sample performed a carrier criminality. Among the variables, low profitability, interior business, and to some degree, management control tend to covary with some or all kinds of decisions given by the regulatory agencies.

    Originality/value – The paper provides the field of white-collar crime an investigation of corporations as offenders from the Swedish horizon. It provides regulatory agencies with a model of the causality behind the decisions against a corporation.

    White Collar Crime: A Propositional Logical Analysis of a Concept2018In: Journal of Forensic Sciences & Criminal Investigation, ISSN 2476-1311, Vol. 9, no 4, article id 555769Article, review/survey (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In their book White-Collar Crime – An Opportunity Perspective (2009), Benson and Simpson undertake the task of more precisely denoting the concept of white-collar crime by its nature and how the causal structure of the object is meant to be understood. The aim of this article is to prove the logical consistency (validity and consequence) of Benson and Simpson’s derivation of the concept. The article focuses on the propositional explanation of causation, by applying first-order logic inference rules of sentential and predicate logic based on the rule of contraposition: a → b ↔ ¬b → ¬a. The results show that Benson and Simpsons’ argument is not logical valid, but logical consequent that is something that the agenda can build on.

    Between Family and Market – A Feminist Story about Individual versus Joint Taxation in Relation to Swedish Business Taxation 1928-19772016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    A general bias in most welfare states has been to use public revenues to deal with inequality in social and economic programmes. However, tax policies and regulatory tax reforms very seldom consider that gender norms and practices have had profound effects in shaping tax systems, which has become hindrance for achieving economic gender equality.

    By applying a gender perspective on family and business taxation we want to show that breadwinning and support of the family are common dominators for how the modern income taxation was constructed. A common understanding is that the consequence of this transformation from family economy to market economy also lead to a permanent and clear cut between these two spheres of economy. We will show that this idea of separation is more of a fiction than the reality.

    From ownership to imposition: the process of creating a legally accountable Bosnian judiciary2012In: Corruption and post-conflict peacebuilding: selling the peace? / [ed] Christine S. Cheng & Dominik Zaum, London: Routledge , 2012, 1, p. 114-125Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Corruption has been recognized as a key challenge to post-conflict peacebuilding efforts, undermining the legitimacy and effectiveness of state institutions, and compromising key peacebuilding tasks such as disarmament and reconstruction. However, in the short run, accepting corruption might be necessary to finding a political settlement and stabilizing a post-conflict order. Our review of the debate suggests that corruption in these contexts is first and foremost a political problem and needs to be addressed as such. Anti-corruption measures, such as promoting accountability and the rule of law, need to be considered in the context of wider peacebuilding objectives.

    Rule of Law and Security Sector Reform: Casual Assumptions, Unintended Risks and the Need for Norms2012In: Hague Journal on the Rule of Law / [ed] Julio Faundez & Ronald Janse, Cambridge, UK: T M C Asser press , 2012, 4, p. 98-119Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines rule of law (ROL) and security sector reform (SSR) linkages in crisis management. In particular, the article looks into why international assistance providers chose to categorize a situation and ensuing response strategy as rule of law or SSR, how this categorization is motivated and explained to international and national partners and stakeholders, and how this categorization affects national laws, institutions and other arrangements in post-conflict and crisis societies. The article is borne out of an observation, based on events in the Arab Spring, that the character of international community responses to rule of law threats and challenges has as a strong focus on security. Rule of law promotion taking place in UN and EU missions has undergone a ‘securitization’ in how reforms are conceived and put into practice, compared with rule of law in development aid and past experiences of rule of law assistance in post-communist transitions.

    Rule of Law Promoton: Global Perspectives, Local Applications2009Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Legal and judicial reform, or “rule of law promotion”, is – and is likely to remain – a priority for international organizations, aid agencies and national governments. The elasticity of the rule of law concept allows it to invoke in support of conflict prevention and peace-building, political transition and human rights, and promoting economic development. Operationally, rule of law project design and programming seem to be converging worldwide. Yet, as rule of law promotion expands its geographic reach to new conflict zones and to Asia, diversity in local political, economic and social environments becomes more obvious. This volume explores what happens when global rule of law promotion confronts local realities, and with what results. We present a fresh collection of essays from new and established scholars in Europe, the United States, Australia and Japan. The contributors explore local case studies ranging from Aceh, Cambodia and East Timor through Vietnam and the PRC, as well as studies of international rule of law promoters including the EU, the World Bank and the UN Security Council. The contributions highlight the increased complexity of the field; the proliferation of local and non-state actors involved in rule of law promotion; and the need for more accountability and good governance by international actors themselves.

    Same-sex parental leave: Legislation and equality2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Sweden is known to have one of the world's most generous parental insurances, both inlength and flexibility which has led to a high maternity rate and more women in paidwork. The political work on equality in Sweden has the goal that women and men shallhave the same power to shape society and their own lives. This has led to legislationaimed at getting fathers to stay more at home with their children. There has been plenty ofresearch on this subject so this study goes off the main track and looks at how legislationaround parenthood works for same-sex couples and if paternal leave is shared moreequally between same-sex parents than heterosexual parents. Discourse analysis of thelegislation and a survey with same-sex families followed by interviews indicate that samesexcouples share parental leave more equally than heterosexual couples. Legislationworks well for most same-sex families except for the process of related adoption. Reasonsfor more equal sharing of parental leave is hard to find but could depend on the fact thatsame-sex couples have been couples for a longer time, than heterosexual couples, beforedeciding to have children. Wage gap between men and women is a reason whyheterosexual couples do not share equally and it could be vice versa for same-sex couples.

    Large Businesses: Co-operative compliance in action2019Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Key Findings

    •  Understanding how co-operative compliance programmes — collaborations between tax administrations and corporations — have an impact demands a practice-based perspective.
    • There is no single model of the co-operative compliance model that works universally.
    • Designing and implementing a co-operative compliance programme ought to consider: whether a pilot is needed, fit with existing laws, the formality in agreements between corporations and tax administrations, voluntariness and inclusiveness respectively of participating corporations, points of contact and whether advance rulings are legally binding.
    • Tax administrations designing, implementing and working with co-operative compliance programmes should carefully assess seven socio-cultural dimensions: existing tax culture, possibilities for evaluation, required competences, structural and organizational hindrances, resistance among stakeholders in the tax arena, trust and equality.

    Fathers' Rights in Swedish Family Law Reform: Taking Account of Fathers' Violence Against Mothers2016In: Canadian Journal of Women and the Law, ISSN 0832-8781, E-ISSN 1911-0235, Vol. 28, no 1, p. 152-181Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A strong assumption in Swedish family law that shared parenting and parentalcooperation post-separation or divorce are preferred creates, as in many otherjurisdictions, problems for mothers who try to protect themselves and their childrenfrom violent fathers. Changes in law during the last decade have, however,weakened the assumption that joint custody and extensive contact with violentfathers are the normal legal outcomes. This article analyzes how fathers’ rights discourses since 2006 have been visible in, and influenced by, Swedish law reformprocesses on child custody and related issues, taking particular account of thecontext of fathers’ violence against mothers. In the analysis, fathers’ violenceagainst mothers is situated within a Swedish gender equality context, and fourdomains of law and policy that are related to fathers’ violence against mothersare delineated as an analytical framework in order to understand the dynamicsof fathers’ rights discourses in relation to the law reforms. The study shows thatfathers’ rights groups have been active and that their discourses are visible in thelegislative documents but that the space for fathers’ rights discourses has beensomewhat restricted in law reforms since 2006. However, the author argues thatthe four law and policy domains seem to lack the ability to counteract fathers’rights discourses regarding economic issues. Moreover, discourses on children’srights, interests, protection, and well-being that are present within all domainshave been more influential on the outcomes of the reforms than gendered discourseson fathers’ violence against mothers. Even though gendered discourses onviolence seem to have played a role in counteracting fathers’ rights discourses,gendered discourses have struggled at the same time to influence several domainsrelated to fathers’ violence against mothers.

    Immigrant Women Facing Male Partner Violence - Gender, Race and Power in Swedish Alien and Criminal Law2012In: feminists@law, ISSN 2046-9551, Vol. 2, no 1, p. 1-26Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article deals with the ways in which gender and race are recognized and addressed in Swedish criminal and alien law with reference to men’s violence against women with insecure residency. It offers an analysis of Swedish preparatory works and case law which seeks to unmask and problematize intersecting power structures and discourses in law. The analysis shows that a perspective on men’s violence against women as related to gender and power to some extent has been implemented in and had significant effects on criminal law, while the significance of race and racism has not been properly acknowledged. Swedish alien law is blatantly lacking in an understanding both in terms of gender power relations and of the ways in which men’s violence against women can be racialized or culturalized. The main conclusion is that there are significant processes of ‘othering’ abused women in both legal areas, but especially in alien law where abused migrant women are constructed as unwanted in the Swedish society when no longer fulfilling their function as men’s partners. The author argues that the notions that men’s violence against women always harms women and is about the assertion of power and control over women should be placed at the centre of an intersectional approach to law and policy. Such an approach will hopefully contribute to counteract current Swedish problems associated with a simplified approach to gender, race and men’s violence against women.

    Men's intimate partner violence against Sami women: a Swedish blind spot2017In: Nordic Journal on Law and Society, E-ISSN 2002-7788, Vol. 1, no 1-2, p. 194-215Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to map the Swedish context regarding men’s intimate partner violence against Sami women and (1) discuss what knowledge and perspectives that dominates that context, and (2) reflect upon possible starting points formeeting the need for knowledge. The outline shows that men’s intimate partner violence against Sami women is a blind spot in Sweden. Important aspects, such as human rights and colonialism, are neglected in the policy discourse. At the most, the policy discourse includes abused Sami women in the problematic category “particular vulnerable groups”. The author argues for a need to problematize if and how responsibility is taken for addressing and responding to the violence and suggests a postcolonial and intersectional approach that centers around how the imbalance of power and control runs through abused women’s experiences. Finally, the author highlights how such an approach also is a matter of indigenous research ethics.

    Women's human rights in the governance of the Arctic: gender equality and violence against indigenous women2018In: The Yearbook of Polar Law, ISSN 1876-8814, E-ISSN 2211-6427, Vol. 9, no 1, p. 53-78Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous studies show a lack of deference and activities when it comes to women's human rights and gender equality in the multi-level governance of the Arctic. According to the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women, women in the Arctic are vulnerable, in particular indigenous and rural women. Their rights are not upheld in the Arctic states for example when it comes to exposure to violence, equal participation in governing bodies, and economic self-support. The public governing bodies have almost no focus on gender equality at all, despite far-reaching international obligations and, for several of the states, national ambitious agendas for gender equality politics. International instruments with obligations to strive for gender equality, such as the CEDAW, the ILO Convention 169 and UNDRIP, are scarcely referred to and not sufficiently implemented by the public governance bodies. The aim of this article is to raise awareness of the obligations set up by human rights documents to promote women' rights in the governance of the Arctic, in order to put pressure on the states to develop strategies for a future gender equal governance. We have a special focus on the general lack of awareness within public governance, and on men's intimate partner violence against indigenous women.
