    Contested Lands?: Dissonance and Common Ground in Stakeholder Views on Forest Values2016Ingår i: Tijdschrift voor economische en sociale geografie, ISSN 0040-747X, E-ISSN 1467-9663, Vol. 107, nr 4, s. 421-434Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    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.

    Miljöbilens förutsättningar i glesa bygder: Tillgänglighet samt sociala och ekonomiska aspekterför individer och hushåll. Kunskapsöversikt för BISEK2012Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This report presents a review of research into the prerequisites for adoption of alternative fuel vehicles(AFVs) in sparsely populated areas. Focus is on issues related to accessibility as well as social andeconomic aspects on the individual and household levels. Geographically, the review focuses mainlyon the Swedish context. Methodology‐wise, the report is based on a literature review encompassingseveral issues: varying views and definitions of rural or sparsely populated areas and the heterogeneitypresent within such broad categories; problems related to accessibility in sparsely populated areas;geographical variations within the Swedish car fleet; access to renewable fuels; theoretical perspectiveson the diffusion of innovations (DOI) and adoption of new technologies, including geographicalperspectives on these issues; and research into the adoption of AFVs more specifically.Moreover, other social and economic aspects of potential relevance for the adoption of AFVs arediscussed. In addition to the literature review, a pilot‐style interview with a resident of a sparselypopulated area in Sweden was conducted.Poor local accessibility is frequently a problematic issue in sparsely populated areas, and a maincause for an extensive car dependency. However, the geographical categories “sparsely populated”or “rural” areas contain substantial differences in prerequisites for accessibility depending not onlyon intra‐local supply, but also on e.g., location with respect to urban centres and major cities, andthe residents’ travel patterns. So far, the adoption and diffusion of AVFs in sparsely populated areashas been limited. Many largely sparsely populated municipalities are among those with the lowestshares of AVFs in the vehicle fleet, and consequently the conventional fossil fuel vehicles dominate.While access to e.g., refueling infrastructure is obviously a key prerequisite for AFV adoption, a lackin this respect does not appear to be a main reason why AFVs are scarce in sparsely populated areas.Theoretical perspectives on DOI suggest that different groups, e.g., regarding socioeconomic attributes,tend to adopt innovations at different stages of the process of diffusion. Also, innovations tendto spread from the higher levels to the lower levels of the urban hierarchy. To date, research intoconsumer adoption of AVFs, despite having generated a substantial body of literature, has largelyneglected geographical factors in general, and an explicit focus on sparsely populated areas is lackingin particular. An explorative interview with a resident in a rural area in Sweden indicated that carchoice was guided by economic factors, whereas environmental concerns were more or less absent.The respondent also expressed a lack of knowledge about AFVs and, importantly, a view that AFVsare a non‐issue, something that lies outside of the realm of awareness.There are various potential impediments as well as opportunities for the adoption of AVFs insparsely populated areas, with regard to contextual factors as well as socioeconomic factors. However,AVF adoption in these geographical settings is an issue which requires more research. This issue ispertinent not least in recognition of the fact that the residents these areas constitute a substantialshare of the population, and cannot be overlooked in the ongoing process of transition of thetransport system towards reduced carbon dependence.

    The accessibility paradox: Everyday geographies of proximity, distance and mobility2012Doktorsavhandling, sammanläggning (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis aims to explore the importance of proximity and mobility, respectively, for individuals’ accessibility, as well as the relationship between these two key spatial dimensions of accessibility in the context of everyday life. The thesis is based upon three empirical research papers which focus on accessibility-related preferences, actual accessibility conditions, and travel patterns. Focus is directed towards the spatial relationships between individuals’ residential location vis-à-vis the location of a selection of different amenities including work, education, service and leisure functions as well as social relations. The analyses are based on a wide range of quantitative data, including questionnaire surveys as well as official register data for the Swedish population.

         The first paper shows that residential proximity to amenities was most valued by individuals in the case of social relations and basic daily activities. The level of satisfaction with current accessibility conditions was generally high, with the exception of social relations where the findings suggest the existence of a ‘proximity deficit’. The second paper shows that observed average distances to most amenities have decreased over time (1995–2005). Concerning service amenities, the increases in proximity over the period were primarily due to a restructuring of the localization patterns within the service sector. A comparison of potential accessibility conditions and actual travel patterns revealed that people tend to travel farther than to the nearest amenity options, presumably to a large extent because of selective individual preferences, which may downplay the importance of distance in destination choice. The third paper shows that although the numerical supply of amenities within different spatial ranges has a significant influence on how far individuals travel for service errands, supply size alone is not sufficient for explaining travel length. The findings also suggest that although people tend to utilize the supply of amenities available locally, they are also willing to extend their travel distance in order to reach the amenity supply available within the region. Thus, even when there is a local supply, a rich regional supply may induce longer trips.

         A juxtaposition of the findings of the three empirical studies suggests the existence of an ‘accessibility paradox’ with several facets. First, although people express an affinity for residential proximity to many amenities, this is not necessarily reflected in actual destination choices, since minimization of travel distance is apparently not always a key criterion. This is also suggested by the conclusion that the spatial structure of the amenity supply alone accounts for only a relatively small part of the explanation of travel length, which is influenced by many other factors. In addition, actual travel distances show an increasing trend over time despite the concurrent reductions in potential distances. Second, the development over time indicates that the proximity deficit regarding social relations may be increasing in the sense that average distances have increased to many of the amenities considered important to have nearby, for instance adult children, but have decreased to those where proximity is not considered particularly important. Third, there is a discrepancy between the observed trend towards increased proximity to many amenities and much of the general discourse on accessibility, which tends to emphasize deteriorating conditions.

    The advantage of 'near': Which accessibilities matter to whom?2011Ingår i: European Journal of Transport and Infrastructure Research, ISSN 1567-7133, E-ISSN 1567-7141, Vol. 11, nr 4, s. 368-388Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores people’s preferences for living close to destinations such as work, service, leisure and social activities, satisfaction with the proximities offered by their residential location, as well as more general residential satisfaction. The paper draws on the literature on accessibility, residential choice and residential preferences, and is empirically based on a survey targeted at individuals aged 20-64 in the Swedish population. The results suggest that ‘proximity preferences’ are structured by both practical and social rationales. Preferences also differ to varying degrees between groups with respect to gender, age and type of residential environment. Self-reported distances are short for virtually all destina-tions except those relating to social relations. People’s satisfaction with their residential location relative to their everyday life accessibility needs is also explored in regression analyses. The findings imply that residential location satisfaction is related to type of resi-dential environment, dwelling type/tenure, whether the respondents had considered mov-ing to increase the proximity to certain destinations, and their level of satisfaction with the distances from home to various destinations.

    Localised attitudes matter: a study of sickness absence in Sweden2008Ingår i: Population, Space and Place, ISSN 1544-8444, E-ISSN 1544-8452, Vol. 14, nr 3, s. 189-207Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The central issues explored in this article are the importance of geographical location in explaining the attitudes of individuals, and the interplay between these attitudes and overt behaviour. The context is as follows: In the late 1990's, sick-listings in Sweden underwent a substantial increase, causing the public expenses for the general sickness insurance to soar. Moreover, the extent of the usage of the insurance was found to vary significantly across different regions within the country. This development of the sickness insurance generally, and the regional differences specifically, have since been the subject of an intense debate. Differences and/or changes in attitudes toward sick leave within the population have been proposed as possible reasons for the regional variations. Much of the discussion has, however, been based on speculative arguments rather than empirical studies. Using data from a survey conducted in 2005, this research explores whether geographical location influences individual attitudes toward sick leave, and whether these attitudes in turn influence the sickness absence of individuals. The data are analysed using factor analysis, ordinary linear regressions and logistic regressions. The results provide some support for the idea that geographical factors matter to individual attitudes, and that variation in these attitudes is in turn associated with propensity for sickness absence.

    Proximity, accessibility and choice: a matter of taste or condition?2012Ingår i: Papers in regional science (Print), ISSN 1056-8190, E-ISSN 1435-5957, Vol. 91, nr 1, s. 65-84Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing on a combination of register data and travel survey data, this research explores changes in the accessibility to different amenities for the Swedish population between 1995 and 2005, as well as the reasons behind the changes: redistribution of either amenities or the population. Overall, proximity has increased concerning most of the amenities during the period. However, despite decreasing 'potential' distances, actual travel distances are growing longer due to, for example, an increasing selectivity in preferences. An analysis of the accessibility development for service amenities shows that restructuring within the service sector is the main cause of the changes, and to a lesser extent population redistribution.

    New forest owners: Change and continuity in the characteristics of Swedish non-industrial private forest owners (NIPF owners) 1990-20102016Ingår i: Small-scale Forestry, ISSN 1873-7617, E-ISSN 1873-7854, Vol. 15, nr 4, s. 533-550Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a total survey of the characteristics and changes over time (1990–2010) within the entire population of Swedish non-industrial private forest owners (NIPF owners). By charting the changed demographic, socio-economic and geographic profile of the NIPF owners, it also provides a baseline for a discussion and analysis of potential implications for forest management, policy and values. NIPF owners differ in important ways from the general population of Sweden. However, the gap has narrowed over time with regard to, e.g., educational level and sex composition. The ongoing urbanization process is evident in the growing share of non-residential NIPF owners who live at a distance from their forest property and who differ from their residential (rural) peers through, e.g., higher education, higher income and a higher prevalence of co-ownership of their forest holdings. Although these changes might translate into updated views on forest values among NIPF owners, there could be a delay before this impacts on forest management practices and output.

    On the importance of forest assets for micro-firm performance2013Ingår i: Fennia, E-ISSN 1798-5617, Vol. 191, nr 2, s. 122-142Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Business start-ups are on the increase, a development which is accompanied by hopes that these new firms will generate a potential for, e.g., local and regional development and a strengthening of local labour markets as well as the national economy. However, the long-term performance and viability of new firms are often rather poor. This research aims to analyse the importance of ownership of areal resources in the form of forest holdings for the performance of Swedish micro-firms. The analyses are based on official register data and fixed-effects panel regression modelling. A hypothesis is that a firm whose owner also possesses forest holdings is more viable thanks to the different resources (in the form of capital from logging or mortgaging, or non-pecuniary other values) the forest holdings may provide, and which possibly contribute to the firm’s economic stability and resilience to economic fluctuations. From a general point of view, we find support for the hypothesis that forest ownership positively and significantly influences firm performance in terms of earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT), but not in terms of value added. Forest ownership is never detrimental to firm performance, although it does not have a significant effect in all sub-categories of entrepreneurs based on different combinations of age, gender and firm type. Particularly, the economic performance of private firms run by older men benefits from resources stemming from their forest holdings. No significant effects were found for female entrepreneurs or for limited companies. As regards regional variations, firms located outside the metropolitan regions – as compared to those at the top of the urban hierarchy – are likely to perform better, thus indicating that local development may benefit from resource transfers from the forest sector to micro-firms engaged in non-primary activities.

    The divergent role of spatial access: the changing supply and location of service amenities and service travel distance in Sweden2013Ingår i: Transportation Research Part A: Policy and Practice, ISSN 0965-8564, E-ISSN 1879-2375, Vol. 49, s. 10-20Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This research explores and adds to the literature concerning the relationship between spatial structure and travel behaviour; specifically, the relationship between local and regional accessibility to service amenities and the distance of service-related trips. The analysis is based on a unique combination of national travel survey data for Sweden and official register data with detailed, geo-referenced information about the Swedish population and the location of service amenities in 1995 and 2005/2006. The results show that spatial access to service amenities increased in general over the study period, both locally (i.e., within ranges of 1 km and 5 km, respectively, of residential areas) and regionally (within 50 km). Despite increased spatial accessibility, the observed average travel distance also increased. We find strong and differing associations between spatial access to service amenities and travel distance, depending on level of scale. While the association was negative on the local scale (i.e., a numerically large supply of amenities was related to shorter travel distance), it was the opposite and positive, on the regional scale. In terms of implications for policy, the results imply that land use planning measures to promote local access, and thereby reduce traffic volumes, may per se be insufficient for attaining more sustainable levels of mobility.

    'Not a Problem Until it Becomes a Problem': A Qualitative Study of Values and Risks of In-house Family Ties in Swedish Workplaces2016Ingår i: Nordic Journal of Working Life Studies, ISSN 2245-0157, E-ISSN 2245-0157, Vol. 6, nr 4, s. 67-86Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In-house family ties at workplaces occur in most contexts, and are associated with both advantages and disadvantages. On the basis of 40 interviews with human resource managers at Swedish workplaces, the values and risks of in-house family ties and their importance within the workplace are analyzed jointly, thus allowing for a holistic perspective. The interviews reveal values and risks on a strategic level, for day-to-day operations, for the social work environment, and on the level of individuals. Crucially, even when in-house family ties are perceived as uncomplicated, there is a latent risk that problems might arise. The interpretation of the role of in-house family ties is also strongly related to whether they are paired with asymmetrical (vertical) power relations. It also depends heavily on the chosen perspective-that of the organization, the social work environment, the individual, or the broader society-and the perceived advantages tend to come with corresponding inverted disadvantages.

    Place, kinship, and employment2018Ingår i: Population, Space and Place, ISSN 1544-8444, E-ISSN 1544-8452, Vol. 24, nr 3, artikel-id e2118Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores the magnitude and composition of kinship ties at Swedish workplaces. By analysing official register data and illustrating findings from interviews with HR personnel at different workplaces, the following questions are discussed: How much kinship concentration is there today on the labour market in a modern Western society such as Sweden? How is the kin‐based selection of workplace members structured by place? The study is based on an analysis of individually connected register information on all workplaces in Sweden in 2012. The number of individual links between relatives and couples at an average workplace amounts to 14% of the number of employees as derived from 310, 000 couples and pairs of relatives among 4.3 million workers. So, even today in Sweden, kinship is a common phenomenon observable for most workers at most workplaces. Of all such connected pairs of kin at workplaces, more than a third contain counterparts living in the same household. A non‐linear individual‐level regression reveals that population density in the vicinity of the workplace is substantially related to kin density. Large agglomerations seem to coexist with low kin density workplaces. Although some level of kin membership is unavoidable especially at workplaces in sparsely populated places, removing this part still reveals that kinship above an unavoidable level seems to exist. The study contributes to the discussion of kinship in workplaces by examining the magnitude and composition of kinship ties in the whole work force and complementing findings with interviews.

    Individual forest owners in context2017Ingår i: Globalisation and change in forest ownership and forest use: natural resource management in transition / [ed] E. Carina H. Keskitalo, Ume: Palgrave Macmillan, 2017, s. 57-95Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this chapter, changes that have taken place on an overarching level in society, such as globalisation, supranational agencies, privatisation and restitution, are discussed from the forest owners' perspective. The forces influencing forest owners and forest ownership as described in Chap. 2 in this volume are scrutinised and interpreted here on a micro level. Urbanisation, economic restructuring, demographic change and new ownership constellations are both drivers and consequences of changes in lifestyles, forest owner identity, place attachment and attitudes to the forest resource.
