    Against all odds: local economic development policies and local government autonomy in Sweden and Britain1993Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis makes a comparative study of local government autonomy in Britain and Sweden within the local economic development policy area. It argues for local government autonomy to be viewed in terms of both a vertical dimension concerning local government's autonomy vis-à-vis national government (national context) and a horizontal dimension relating to its autonomy vis-à-vis local social and economic forces (local context). A policy area approach is advocated as the strength of, and the balance between, factors influencing local government autonomy, both vertically and horizontally, may be modified by the particular characteristics of the policy area. For example, the local economic development policy area is characterized as a grey zone respecting the intergovernmental relationship and a "mixed-economy" concerning the public-private sector relationship.

    The concept of autonomy is distinguished into policy-making independence (measured as local authority cooperation with other actors in economic development policies) and capacity for action (measured in terms of four local authority roles in the local economy). These are tested empirically regarding the influence of the local context and the relationship between them examined. The dominant trend in both countries is that the more local authorities intervene in the local economy (extend their capacity for action), the greater their cooperation with other actors (the more restricted their policy-making independence).

    Evaluation: the (not so) softly-softly approach to governance and its consequences for compulsory education in the Nordic countries2011Ingår i: Education Inquiry, ISSN 2000-4508, E-ISSN 2000-4508, Vol. 2, nr 4, s. 671-687Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Public sector reform involving decentralisation and marketisation has led to “soft” indirect forms of governance aimed at steering more fragmented systems. Although based on information and guidance rather than hierarchy and legislation, these new methods of regulating through evaluation and quality control may be as powerful as more direct control methods. Frequently embodying practices building on values concerning consumer choice and competition, they may challenge values of equality and social justice associated with the Nordic model of education. Drawing on a qualitative analysis using documentary data concerning evaluation structures and techniques, the development of an evaluative culture and consequences for compulsory education in the Nordic countries are examined. Although soft governance techniques of evaluation and control have impacted on compulsory education in all five countries, there are differences concerning the extent to which the Nordic model’s values have been challenged. Further, there are signs of resistance and reluctance to abandon the model’s basic tenets.

    Gendering the governance of the city?2012Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite the potential of governance theory to connect with feminist critiques of the public- private dichotomy in that it recognizes that processes of governing do not just take place within the formal, public arena of politics, but also in the “private” through families, workplaces and schools, gender analyses of governance have been lacking. Thus, with regard to urban governance, it becomes important to scrutinize the seemly “natural” ways of organizing and structuring the city and its decision and policy making processes.  The right to the city, to participate in and influence decision making processes affecting one’s life should, theoretically be the same for all citizens, regardless of sex, age, ethnicity and so on. However, not everyone has the same opportunities to participate. The city, through its space, architecture, social relations and activities produces and reproduces the gendered, racialized, sexualized and classed power relations in society. These have the potential to oppress and dominate not just through the distribution of material resources, but also through taken-for-granted assumptions and practices that include some while excluding others.  

     

    Women and men, as heterogeneous categories, use and experience the city differently and have different priorities in terms of services and infrastructure. These differences are socially constructed reflecting that the lives of women and men are deeply and systematically conditioned by various social norms and expectations and unequal economic and social power relations. Feminist research on the gendered construction of cities shows how women’s insecurity in urban spaces curtails not only their access to and participation in the city, but also limits their visions of the city as a “good place” to live and work. Women’s fear of men’s violence, and the ways in which it constrains their freedom to exercise their citizenship, raise fundamental problems for democracy. This paper aims to contribute to the gendering of governance theory by exploring how women’s insecurity in urban areas affects their use of, access to and participation in the city and the consequences for their citizenship.  Drawing on theories relating to the embodied nature of citizenship, focus group interviews with different groups of women (reflecting age, class and ethnicity) gathered in four Swedish municipalities are analyzed and the implications of women’s visions of the city for urban governance considered.

    Governing the city: gender and urban governance2012Ingår i: Theorizing and Practicing Gender-Sensitive Planning in European Discourse, 2012Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite one of governance theory’s strengths being that it recognizes that processes of governing take place in sites beyond the domain of institutional politics, there has been a lack of gender analyses of governance. This is somewhat surprising given its potential to connect with feminist critique of, for example, the public - private dichotomy. Women and men use and experience the city differently and have, for example, different priorities in terms of services and infrastructure. These differences are socially constructed reflecting that the lives of women and men are deeply and systematically conditioned by various social norms and expectations. This paper aims to contribute to the gendering of governance theory by exploring how women’s insecurity in urban areas affects their use of, access to and participation in the city and the consequences for their citizenship.  The focus is on how women’s insecurity in urban areas highlights the need for more gender-sensitive urban governance. Drawing on theories relating to the embodied nature of citizenship, focus group interviews with different groups of women (reflecting age, class and ethnicity) gathered in four Swedish municipalities are analyzed and the implications for gender-sensitive governance are considered.

    Hell's Grannies and Crazy Ladies: Challenging the Precarization of Older Women2019Ingår i: Social Politics: International Studies in Gender, State and Society, ISSN 1072-4745, E-ISSN 1468-2893Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Older women are often portrayed as particularly vulnerable and in need of protection, producing processes of ageist “othering” that deny agency, foster “appropriate” behaviors, and work to exclude them from everyday life. While not denying many women face a precarious situation in later life, some older women resist their subjectivation as vulnerable. Drawing on a concept of precarity as governmentality, older women’s acceptance and resistance to being characterized as “vulnerable” and in need of protection are explored in relation to focus group interviews with female pensioners in four Swedish municipalities.

    New Subject Positions for Non-Traditional Actors or Business as Usual in the Strong Region Discourse?2012Ingår i: Promoting Innovation: Policies, Practices and Procedures / [ed] Andersson, S, Berglund, K, Gunnarsson, E & Sundin, E, Stockholm: Vinnova , 2012, s. 68-90Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Swedish regional policy has moved from being ahighly centralised, national government regional policy aiming at levelling outterritorial differences and aiding problem regions to a more decentralised,neo-liberal policy focusing on promoting growth in the whole country. In this new policy, emphasis is placed on the need for increased entrepreneurship and the development of innovation systems in order to facilitate the region’s economic growth so that it becomes a strong region. Applying Carol Bacchi’s “What’s the Problem?” approach to government policy documents and reports concerning regional policy between 1993 and 2010, this chapter analyses the gendered consequences ofthe strong region discourse and asks what spaces and subject positions are being created for those who do not fit the strong region image? Who is constructed as the entrepreneurial citizen capable of promoting innovation? The chapter identifies several competing discourses at work: the strong region discourse, the gender equality for growth discourse, and the women as a problemin achieving regional development discourse. It argues that these are, somewhat paradoxically, complementary and contradictory - both opening and closing spaces and opportunities for subjectivities for women and other “Others”, particularly when gender, ethnicity and age intersect. It concludes that the male norm underlying the construction of entrepreneurship and innovation still continues to dominate and the networks and clusters that women engage in are generally not ascribed a place in innovation systems and consequently not defined as “innovation”. Nevertheless, although it still appears to be businessas usual, potential may lurk in the cracks between the representations of women, immigrants and young people, both as problems and as assets. These can perhaps provide opportunities to challenge the dominant gendered, radicalised and sexualised power relations in regional policy and the construction of innovation as “masculine”.

    Regional development partnerships in Sweden: putting the government back in governance?2005Ingår i: Regional and Federal Studies, Vol. 15, nr 3, s. 311-327Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Regional development partnerships were introduced in Sweden in 1998 as part of a new regional policy. Here it is argued that these partnerships can provide support for the concept of governance in which the state continues to play an important role in steering the direction of policy. On the surface, as a decentralized organizational form, emphasizing inclusion of a broad range of regional stakeholders in the production of regional growth agreements/programmes, the partnerships would seem to fit a strategy of 'letting other regimes rule' on the part of the state. However, the central role played by the Swedish county administrative boards (the extended arm of the state in the region), suggests that the partnerships could also be a way for central government to retain control over the direction of regional development. In this way, they become an example of the state's ability to adjust to a changing environment rather than its 'hollowing out'.

    Regionala partnerskap - ett hot mot eller ett förverkligande av demokrati?2001Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Papperet fokuserar på de nya regionala partnerskap som har införts i samband med de regionala tillväxtavtalen och vilka möjligheter dessa har att stärka eller försvaga demokrati. Partnerskap är en ny formför det politiska arbetet på regional nivå somuppmuntras av både staten och EU. I partnerskap skall aktörer från olika sektorer, särskilt näringslivet, ingå. Det övergripande målet är att genom att utveckla en helhetssyn och en bättre tvärsektoriell samverkan mellan olika aktörer åstadkomma en hållbar ekonomisk tillväxt. Partnerskap kan ses som en del i utvecklingen av en ny regionalpolitik där fokus har förskjutits från traditionellt industristöd till en ökad betoning av att varje region bör bygga sin utveckling på just sina egna förutsättningar. Detta skall stimulera utvecklingen av aktiva regioner som kännetecknas av inklusivitet, nätverk, samverkan och dialog mellan olika regionala intressen (stakeholders). Strategin är nära kopplad till framväxten av en mer holistisk regional diskurs, som innehåller en mer sammanhållen syn på samhällsbyggande och samhällsutveckling där hälsa, kultur, utbildning, miljö samt omsorg om barn och äldre ingår i ett interaktivt skapande av välfärd och tillväxt. Den preliminära slutsats somman kan dra från vår inledande undersökning är att det finns en potential för att regionala partnerskap, som en del av en bredare mer holistisk regional diskurs, skall kunna bidra till en utveckling av den regionala och lokala demokratin. Men om den mer exkluderande diskursen dominerar och regionala partnerskap blir ett elitprojekt finns det risk att demokratin i stället försämras.

    Sharing fairly?: mobility, citizenship, and gender relations in two Swedish city-regions2018Ingår i: Journal of Urban Affairs, ISSN 0735-2166, E-ISSN 1467-9906, Vol. 40, nr 1, s. 82-97Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article focuses on the centrality of women's mobility in relation to urban citizenship and how this is influenced by the underlying gender relations. A theoretical framework is developed concerning mobility, citizenship and the gender contract. Focusing on the Swedish situation the relationship between gender, domestic work and commuting is discussed.  Drawing on theories concerning mobility and the concept of gender contract and using the findings from a questionnaire survey, these issues are explored in two Swedish city-regions, Göteborg and Umeå. Focus is on whether, when both in a couple are in paid employment and commute, a more egalitarian gender contract develops where the unpaid domestic work is shared more equally. It concludes that, irrespective of commuting, there continues to be a more traditional gender contract where, despite being in paid employment, the woman continues to be responsible for the brunt of the unpaid domestic labour with the exception of tasks relating to childcare. Here responsibility is more equally shared between both parents, reflecting a strong norm in Swedish society where fathers are also expected to be actively involved with their children.

    Visioning the future city?2018Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    “To give up hope would be to accept that a desired future is not possible. Without hope, the future would become impossible” (Ahmed 2014:185).

    Urban planning frequently involves creating visions of the future city, often as the ‘good’ place. Understanding the city as relational and always in a process of becoming (Massey 2005) suggests it should be amenable to re-imagination. However, changing the city’s physical form is relatively easy compared to changing the social relations, cultural meanings, traditions and norms in which that materiality is embedded (Plate & Rommes 2007).  Developing more inclusive cities requires ways of contesting the ‘straightjacket’ of accepted meanings and ways of being and imagine alternatives that give hope for the future. Utopias can be seen as experiments involving “imagination as a method, hope as a motivation, and social change as a goal” (Greenway 2002: 201). Feminist utopian thinking in particular concerns creating new conceptual spaces which open up possibilities for imagining different ways of conceptualising the past, present and future (Sargisson 1996). In the study reported here, transgressing alternatives of imagining the city drawn from feminist science fiction and utopian writings were presented to focus groups of women from different backgrounds in two Swedish cities. The aim was to encourage them to re-imagine their urban subjectivities, challenge the accepted ways of being and picture an ‘other’ city. The women’s visions reflected both acceptance and questioning of the city’s gendered norms and power relations and presented alternative future cities.

    Gender, governance and feminist post-structuralist analysis: missing in action?2017Samlingsverk (redaktörskap) (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This edited volume presents critical scholarship analysing governance practices in diverse jurisdictions in Europe and North America, at multiple scales, and in relation to several different arenas of policy and practice. The contributors address shortcomings in the mainstream literature on governance within the discipline of political science.

    The volume as a whole is marked by geographical and topical diversity. However, what the individual chapters have in common is that each considers whether and how gender, racialized identity, and/or other axes of marginalization are visible within the conceptualizations and/or practices of governance under discussion.

    Drawing together insights and conceptual tools from both feminist and post-structuralist frameworks in analysing governance practices, this volume will be of great interest to scholars and graduates who engage with feminist and/or post-structural analysis of policy and governance. It will also be of use to critical policy scholars in anthropology, geography, sociology, and women's studies.

    There is a powerful narrative of Umeå as a progressive, gender-equal, tolerant citywhich has been important in relation to the investments in culture that the cityhas made, including the European Capital of Culture Year 2014. Viewing the cityas process, as negotiated and contested representation, we study how narratives ofgender-equality figure throughout Capital of Culture year, Umeå2014, and in theprojects that were part of it. We examine how the talk about gender-equality interactswith notions of place and how they are interconnected with each other. Weare interested in what happens with a major cultural project when gender-equalityis emphasized as one of the key values, at the same time as the meaning andcontent of this concept is not specified. Studying official documents and municipalwebpages concerning Umeå as European Capital of Culture, applications forco-funding of cultural projects and news articles, we scrutinize how gender-equalityis used and given meaning by looking at the way it is operationalized bothby the city officials and by those engaging in cultural activities. Gender equalitybecame something that was highlighted in the bid to become European Capitalof Culture and in the making of the programme for the year, and stories aboutthe Umeå2014’s success in implementing a gender-equality perspective have beenrepeated and woven together into a yet another narrative of Umeå. They becamepart of an ongoing negotiation of the city’s identity.

    A place for culture? Building an Alternative House of Culture in the context of the 2014 European Capital of Culture in Umeå, Sweden2018Ingår i: Participations, ISSN 1749-8716, E-ISSN 1749-8716, Vol. 15, nr 2, s. 170-188Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In the context of Umeå2014 as European Capital of Culture (ECOC) where the ideal of the inclusive co-creation of culture formed a central part of the programme, we explore the rise, fall and aftermath of an alternative house of culture – Lokstallarna (the Engine Sheds). In its ECOC bid, Umeå stressed its strong alternative, grassroots tradition and ‘Do-It-Yourself’ culture. However, these groups increasingly questioned the inclusiveness of the participatory process around the development and implementation of the programme for the ECOC year. We study one of these alternative movements which occupied disused engine sheds with the aim of turning them into a house of culture ‘for all’ as a counter to the Umeå2014 programme. The focus is on the narrative of Lokstallarna and the creation of an alternative house of culture both from the point of view of those actively involved in its creation and in the local media coverage. We have collected a variety of empirical materials, both on and offline. We approach Lokstallarna as a form of place-based resistance where meanings of activism, culture and the city are negotiated and contested. The ECOC Year in Umeå opened up the opportunity to negotiate both culture and place.

    The co-creation (of) culture?: The case of Umeå, European Capital of Culture 20142017Ingår i: European Planning Studies, ISSN 0965-4313, E-ISSN 1469-5944, Vol. 25, nr 9, s. 1538-1555Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Culture is often promoted as crucial in efforts to achieve economic growth and social cohesion. In recent debates, greater attention has been directed at the importance of culture in creating democratic and just cities. Drawing on theories concerning participation, we study the processes of citizen participation in the creation of culture in relation to the European Capital of Culture in Umea in Northern Sweden. The city has been praised for its focus on participation and the co-creation' of culture. We scrutinize the idea of co-creation, how it is filled with meaning by different actors, the way it is operationalized by city officials and cultural actors/practitioners and the possibilities for public participation and the power relationships at play in the city. We conclude that culture tends to be depoliticized and turned into an arena available for all on supposedly equal terms and ignores the very unequal terms on which different actors participate. It ignores how power relations affect and construct who gets to speak and be heard; that there are conflicting meanings of culture and co-creation and how power influences whose definition of culture is accepted.

    The politics of local income tax in Sweden: reform and continuity2005Ingår i: Local Government Studies, ISSN 0300-3930, E-ISSN 1743-9388, Vol. 31, nr 3, s. 351-366Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Local authorities have played an important role in the Swedish model of the Welfare State. This state is characterised by high levels of welfare provision paid for through general taxation, the rates of which are very high and the application of uniform standards across the entire country based on the principles of equity and fairness. The main form of income for local authorities is a Local Income Tax which is paid by 85% of the population. In the 1980s and 1990s, Sweden went through an economic crisis which resulted in significant changes to the tax system, although the Local Income Tax was retained. Subsequent changes have followed a pendulum process, with deregulation of local government finances in the 1990s being followed by greater regulation in the following years. Today, Sweden is conducting a major debate about the role and functions of different levels of government in the light of social, economic and political changes in the international scene.

    Comparative evaluation of city dwellers' perspectives on household energy use based on housing tenure: survey results from Northern Sweden2019Ingår i: Cold climate HVAC 2018: sustainable buildings in cold climates / [ed] Dennis Johansson, Hans Bagge, and Åsa Wahlström, Switzerland: Springer Publishing Company, 2019, 1, s. 791-801Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The successful implementation of energy efficiency measures in the residential sector will depend to a large extent on the attitudes and perceptions of the end-users since they are the final decision maker. The tenure of the housing could influence the building occupants' perspectives on energy issues. In this study we conducted a comparative evaluation of perspectives on energy use of three categories of households: those living in single family houses, tenants and owners' of apartment. The analysis is based on responses to a mail-in questionnaire by approximately 650 residents in Umeå, Sweden. Majority of the respondents believed that their annual household energy use is less. Residents in single-family houses, as compared to the other two types of tenure of the housing, were more likely to believe their heat energy use as high and likely to take actions to reduce the energy use. Financial incentives such as subsidy or lower interest rate were preferred by most of single-family homeowners (45%) to motivate them to take actions to reduce energy use. While personalized information to reduce energy use and lower interest rate and reduced rent are preferred by more residents in the other two categories. The implications for promoting energy efficient measures based on housing tenure is discussed.

    Den jämställda staden?: Om jämställdhet och delaktighet i stadsplaneringen2008Rapport (Övrig (populärvetenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [sv]

    Projektet »Jämställd planering« var ett samarbete mellan forskare vid Statsvetenskapliga institutionen, Umeå universitet och tjänstepersoner vid Samhällsbyggnadskontoret och Stadsledningskontoret, Umeå kommun. Projektet pågick från september 2007 till januari 2008 och finansierades av EU:s Strukturfonder Mål 1, Umeå kommun och Umeå universitet.

    Syftet med projektet var att hitta nya sätt att förbättra kvinnors delaktighet i samhällsplaneringen i samband med förnyelsen av översiktsplanefördjupning för centrala Umeå. Projektet bestod av såväl utåtriktade aktiviteter som forskning. Forskningsdelen bestod av två delstudier:

    • För det första genomfördes en kartläggning av andra svenska kommuners försök att öka kvinnors delaktighet i samhällsplaneringen.

    • För det andra hölls det idéseminarier med aktiva kvinnor från olika föreningar och organisationer i Umeå, där resultatet av kartläggningen användes som diskussionsunderlag.

    Utifrån resultatet av idéseminarierna togs det fram förslag på nya metoder för att öka kvinnors deltagande i samhällsplaneringen. Denna rapport är en summering av projektets resultat.
