    The Barents Region: Security and Economic Development in the European North1994Collection (editor) (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    This book is based on contributions to the international symposium The Barents Region in the New Europe: Natural Resources and Security Policy, held at Umeå University, 7–8 May 1993. The symposium was organ­ized by the Group for peace Research, Conflict and security Studies (FOKS) at Umeå University in coopera­tion with the Swedish Institute of International Affairs, Stockholm. The majority of the articles in this volume were presented at the symposium, but some contribu­tions were added afterwards.

    The compilation and editing of the present volume has been done with financial support from the Centre for Regional Science (CERUM), the FOKS group and the Swedish Institute of International Affairs. In the fall of 1993, CERUM formed The Barents Programme: The Umeå University Multidisciplinary Research Programme on the Barents Sea Region. This programme brings to­gether researchers from various university departments with a view to coordinate the efforts to investigate pertinent problems relating to the development of the Barents Region.

    This book is the first result of the work performed within the Umeå University Barents Programme.

    Assessing the Structural Prerequisites for an Efficient Russian Political Market2007Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Applying the market metaphor the first part of the article outlines a conceptual model for assessing the efficiency of the Russian political system. In the Russian transitional context the development of democracy also has to be included in such an assessment. Using Robert Dahl’s classic criteria of democracy and Douglass C. North’s factors determining transaction costs a scheme is suggested for assessing the efficiency of the Russian political market, looking at the structure of this market as well as actors’ behaviour (agency). In the second part of the article, essential structural developments of the Russian political market are analysed and the implications of these developments are discussed. The conclusion is that a number of recent reforms affecting the structure of the Russian political market will improve the prerequisites for efficiency of citizens’ participation in political life. Finally, the usefulness of applying the market metaphor in analyses of the political system is discussed.

    Continuity and change: institutions and transition in the Russian forest sector2008Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    For reasons having to do with the Soviet resource allocation model, many Russian forest sector enterprises were miserably unfit to meet the market competition that started to emerge after the disintegration of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s. To avoid bankruptcy and stay alive in Russia's transition towards a market-like system many enterprises chose to engage in non-monetary transactions, thus establishing what has become known as Russia's virtual economy. The peculiar institutions ("rules-in-use") guiding actors' behaviour in this odd system are incompatible with the operation of efficient markets.

    The topics discussed in this book can be framed through the following questions: What is the general role of institutions in the on-going changes in Russian society? Are there institutions that hamper the transition process towards democracy and a market economy? If so, how do they hamper this process? How can such institutions be changed to better serve the needs of the emerging market system? These and similar questions are addressed from several different but related perspectives in a number of studies of actors' behaviour in the Russian timber procurement arena.

    De sovjetiska unionsrepublikernas nationalinkomst: En studie om nationalinkomstens värde som indikator på republikernas ekonomiska utvecklingsnivå1980In: Bidrag till öststatsforskningen, ISSN 0345-1100, Vol. 8, no 2, p. 330-Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    This study of the national income of the Soviet Union republics was performed in a research pro­ject at the former Deptartment of Soviet and East European Research, Uppsala University. The pro­ject, which was headed by Dr. Jan Åke Dellen­brant, was called "Political and Social Changes in the Soviet Union after the 1965 Economic Reforms".

    This report takes a closer look at what, according to Soviet opinion, was the most important syn­thetic indicator of the level of economic de­velop­ment of the Soviet republics — the national income. The report provides insights into the design and function of the Soviet national accounting system and the Soviet economic system in general. (The project was funded by The Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation.)

    Den offentliga sektorn i samhällsekonomin: En problemorienterande studie av ekonomin i Västerbotten1984Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    This book was the outcome of a research project analyzing the impact of the public sector on the regional economy. The project was initiated in the spring of 1982 by the regional office of The Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees (TCO). The research was performed at the Department of Regional Economics of Umeå University. Professor Åke E. Andersson supervised the work. A reference group of twelve people was attached to the project. Members of the group represented regional trade unions, business, and the public sector.

    The report contains four parts. Part I gives an introductory background to the following analysis. Part II contains an investigation of public sector demand from the regional business sector. In Part III some important current issues in public economics are discussed. The final Part IV summarizes the results of the investigation and some conclusions are formulated. The main purpose of the report was to provide an overview of certain important problematic issues in public economics. The primary focus was on a specific aspect of the real activity of the public sector — public sector production.

    Is the Russian Virtual Economy Coming to an End?: Institutional Change in the Arkhangelsk Forest Sector2006Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the spring of 1997, the Forestry Program at IIASA has been engaged in a study called “Institutions and the Emergence of Markets―Transition in the Russian Forest Sector”. The IIASA research group has looked at problems related to the institutions governing the Russian forest sector. In its first phase (1998–2001) the study sought to identify institutional problems hampering the further development of the Russian forest sector. Case studies were performed in eight Russian regions. In its second phase (2000–2002), so-called policy exercise workshops were held in four of the eight case study regions. In these workshops the findings of the case studies were presented to the stakeholders in the respective regions and a discussion was initiated about future regional forest policies. In a third phase, starting in 2003, after the in-house research activity was over, the study has been continued outside the institute by a member of the previous IIASA team. A follow-up study of the behavior of forest sector enterprises in one of the previous case study regions (Arkhangelsk Oblast) has been conducted with the purpose of assessing the recent development of the institutional set-up characterizing the so-called virtual economy. The present report presents the findings of this assessment.

    Systemic Interventions to Promote Institutional Change in the Russian Forest Sector2006In: Review of Policy Research, Vol. 23, no 2, p. 505-530Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Institutions govern the behavior of all actors in a society. The Russian transition to a market economy is mainly a matter of reshaping society’s institutions to make them more conducive to a market efficient behavior. But how can suitable institutional changes be achieved? This article discusses the experiences gained through a series of policy exercises with stakeholders in the Russian regional forest sector. The purpose of the exercises was to initiate a participatory policy process leading to the elaboration of implementable proposals for a new regional forest policy. The prospects of such policy exercises to make an impact are best if the systemic interventionist manages to affiliate with active regional stakeholder groups and if support from the regional authorities and external financial sources can be secured. Such support will establish an effective incentive structure that will contribute to the legitimacy of the policy process. In the current Russian situation there is a lack of organized stakeholder groups with whom to conduct a dialogue.

    The Russian virtual economy turning real: institutional change in the Arkhangel’sk forest sector2008In: Europe-Asia Studies, ISSN 0966-8136, E-ISSN 1465-3427, Vol. 60, no 5, p. 707-738Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article reports on an attempt to assess recent developments of the Russian ‘virtual economy’, a system that, some have argued, represents an alternative form of economic interaction to the modern market economy. In the virtual economy enterprises are engaged in informal non-market transactions with other enterprises and the public sector in accordance with rules that are alien to a market economy. Structural and behavioural changes that have taken place in the Russian economy after 1998 are studied with the help of official data and two surveys (from 1998 and 2005) of 15 forest sectorenterprises in Arkhangel’sk Oblast’, a region in Russia’s north-west with a largely forest-based economy. The outcome of the assessment indicates that the virtual economy is contracting in the Arkhangel’sk forest sector as well as in Russia at large, and that it will eventually disappear altogether, even if it is likely to exert a profound influence on the behaviour of Russian enterprises for some time yet.

    Systems Approaches and Their Application: Examples from Sweden2004Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Within a conceptual framework that is developed in the two first chapters, the actual application of systems thinking is described across a broad field of cases representing research, teaching, decision support and construction. All cases are presented by experts who have actually been involved in the activities they describe. Thus, the broad selection of cases captures the great variation of systems thinking and how it is integrated into models and theories and solid knowledge pertaining to different substantive areas. At the same time all case study authors address the same set of questions that are developed in the conceptual chapters. This gives comparability across cases - chapters - and brings cohesion to the book. The focus on Sweden, an advanced country in systems thinking, reinforces the unitary context in which comparison can be made between a systems approach for better research (theory), better practice and better design and construction.

    Most recent literature on systems thinking has a general (often philosophical) perspective, concerns computer systems or focuses on one highly specific problem. A special feature of this book is that, while it concerns a single nation, it simultaneously contains a broad overview of systems analysis in a number of important issue areas, for research as well as practice, against a penetrating background description of what systems analysis is, how it functions, what problems it represents and what results it may produce.

    The book is intended for a broad readership and can be appreciated by experts on systems thinking and analysis as well as by students, teachers, researchers, planners and policy makers who want to learn more about this topic. The book should be useful in university teaching in several disciplines.
