    Exploring Dutch Migration to Rural Sweden: International Counterurbanisation in the EU2012In: Tijdschrift voor economische en sociale geografie, ISSN 0040-747X, E-ISSN 1467-9663, Vol. 103, no 3, p. 330-346Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores whether the concept of counterurbanisation, expanded with an internationaldimension, offers a valuable framework for understanding recent migration flows from theNetherlands to Sweden. Using a geo-referenced database comprising demographic and socioeconomicvariables, the post-migration employment status, employment sector and settlementlocation of Dutch migrants in Central Sweden are analysed. In addition, results from observation,interviews and a survey during emigration fairs are employed to describe the motives for migrationfrom the Netherlands to Central Sweden. We argue that counterurbanisation is not an exhaustedresearch topic, when international political, economic and socio-cultural factors are added to thestudy.

    Contested Lands?: Dissonance and Common Ground in Stakeholder Views on Forest Values2016In: Tijdschrift voor economische en sociale geografie, ISSN 0040-747X, E-ISSN 1467-9663, Vol. 107, no 4, p. 421-434Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Forest lands are used in increasingly plural ways and serve society with numerous benefits. This paper analyses the views of private forest owners and the general public in Sweden on the values of the forest. Two main dimensions were identified: ‘preservation and recreation’ values, reflecting ecological and social aspects; and ‘production’ values, reflecting economic aspects. While the general public emphasised the importance of forest uses which cater to ecological and social forest values more strongly compared to the forest owners, no significant difference was found concerning economic forest values. This suggests that while there is scope for contestation over forest land use, there is also some potential for common ground across stakeholder groups. These findings add to the body of knowledge of the views on the use of forest lands, and can inform forest related planning, management and policy development.

    Transnational spaces "from above": the role of Institutions in promoting highly skilled labour migration from India to Sweden2014In: Tijdschrift voor economische en sociale geografie, ISSN 0040-747X, E-ISSN 1467-9663, Vol. 105, no 5, p. 511-525Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The global network economy involves intensive interactions and flows between places. In this paper, we define a theoretical framework of labour migration in the global economy in which we propose the importance of transnational spaces 'from above' and how formal organisations develop networks for migration processes. This theoretical framework is employed on an empirical study that investigates the increasing flows of highly-skilled labour migration from India to Sweden within the ICT-sector. The paper illustrates how transformations and acting in formal institutions in the political and private sectors have a strong impact on the transnational migration of highly-skilled labour. By integrating theories from migration studies, institutional theory and economic geography the theoretical framework has been able to conceptualise factors that are less visible in migration studies 'from below'. Thereby this paper contributes to a more multi-sided understanding of transnational migration processes.

    Are movers still the same?: Characteristics of interregional migrants in Sweden 1970 - 20012007In: Tijdschrift voor economische en sociale geografie, ISSN 0040-747X, E-ISSN 1467-9663, Vol. 98, no 3, p. 336-348Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to investigate interregional migration in Sweden during the last three decades and to discuss the effects that changes on the labour market and in household structures have had on migration patterns. The empirical data consists of all interregional migrants in Sweden from 1970 to 2001. The results indicate that the pattern of labour market-related migration has changed as more migrants today migrate at an age prior to having become established on the labour market. The increase in interregional migration is to a large extent an effect of increased student migration. The study further shows that changed household structures have also had an impact on migration patterns during the studied period. Interregional migration among families has become rarer as dual income households have become the norm.

    From second home to primary residence: migration towards recreational properties in Sweden 1991–20052012In: Tijdschrift voor economische en sociale geografie, ISSN 0040-747X, E-ISSN 1467-9663, Vol. 103, no 1, p. 53-68Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Second homes are at the nexus of tourism and migration. Previous research has demonstrated thatsecond homes are important domiciles after retirement. Nevertheless, few studies have addressedthis issue specifically. Many households claim that they would use their second homes more often,and some even state that they would convert these homes into their new permanent homes. Whilethis is a known phenomenon, its geographical outcome is rather unknown. Hence, the purpose ofthis paper is to investigate the conversion of second homes into primary residences. This is donewith respect to timing and geographical patterns. A geo-referenced longitudinal populationdatabase allows for identifying converted properties and linking them to information of theirowners’ households. This facilitates a discussion regarding the impact of conversions on planningand service provision in host communities, too. The analysis refers to the time period from 1991to 2005.

    Do changes in gdp influence commuting distances?: a study of swedish commuting patterns between 1990 and 20062012In: Tijdschrift voor economische en sociale geografie, ISSN 0040-747X, E-ISSN 1467-9663, Vol. 103, no 4, p. 443-456Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Several studies have analysed the relationships between individuals' commuting distances and individual characteristics, discrimination, societal structure and planning. Largely left unexplored, however, are the long-term relationships between changes in the economic cycle and the effects on individual commuting distances. Using regression analyses, this study focuses on the relationship between changes in GDP and commuters' response reflected in commuting distances. The empirical data consist of records of almost 12 million Swedish commuting events between 1990 and 2006. Results of the analyses indicate that changes in GDP growth rate have an impact on commuting distances, especially for younger workers, the recently unemployed and commuters in metropolitan areas.
