    Job-related mobility and plant performance in Sweden2017Ingår i: Geoforum, ISSN 0016-7185, E-ISSN 1872-9398, Vol. 83, s. 39-49Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper uses a Swedish micro-dataset containing 2,696,909 hires during the period 2002-2006 to assess the impact of job-related mobility on plant-level performance. The analysis classifies new recruits according to their work experience and level of formal qualification, as well as by the region of origin and of destination. New hires are divided into graduates and experienced workers and between high- and low-educated. The results point towards the importance of acknowledging both the experience and the skills of new recruits. The greatest benefits are related to hiring new workers from outside the region where the plant is located. The analysis also stresses the importance of geography, with plants in metropolitan regions gaining the most from labour mobility, while the benefits of mobility for plants in smaller, more peripheral regions are more diverse and dependent on both the type and origin of new workers.

    Abstract [en]

    In the late eighteenth century explorers and scientists started venturing into the Arctic beyond areas that were already populated by Indigenous peoples and a smaller number of new settlers, and ultimately towards the North Pole. It was about as far as anyone could get from civilization at the time, and in many respects it remains this way to this day. What the first explorers saw had not yet been seen and recorded by Western civilization. They were the first to tell the stories and document the state of the Arctic – its physical landscape and Indigenous cultures. The prosaic descriptions are many and colourful, moving and poetic, and they also soon began to provide detailed accounts of the state of Indigenous living conditions. A shared feature in these first accounts, in prints and in paintings, is the descriptions of a harsh and barren landscape frozen in time; static and unchangeable, except for the swift sways in weather. Fanciful images of indigenous communities in isolated settlements, without any contact with “western civilization” came to shape the following generations perception of the Arctic. While the Arctic gradually became a place where new maps and lines drawn became a reality to outsiders, it was also, and had been for thousands of years, the homeland for many and diverse groups of indigenous peoples, surviving in at times unforgiving conditions while developing vibrant cultures, including strong traditions for adapting to changing conditions. The storytelling is today highly valued by itself and for its importance as a complement to science. And northern art has become more vibrant than ever as shown in some chapters here integrating the changes occurring on so many grounds. It is time for new images of the region to be established. With this book we wish these new images and the new knowledge constantly being produced to reach a broad audience as the interested general public as well as policy-makers and scientific colleagues.

    Abstract [en]

    Public transportation is important today due to all the problems connected to the use of cars. To avoid these problems like pollution and traffic jams people need to use the public transportation systems more frequently. Many people today are used to the idea of their cars as a primary way of transportation due to the flexibility it provides. To make them think twice before using the car they need to find a sustainable and flexible substitute to the car, maybe public transportation could be that.

    This thesis aims to identify possibilities for development in the public transportation system. To do so some inhabitants in the municipality of Österåker have been interviewed about their opinion towards the public transportation. The results from the interviews have been thematically coded to be able to find common themes within the answers. The results show that the public transportation system is sufficient to use when commute to and from work, but not adequate enough within the municipality during leisure time or trips for service. This could mirror the opinions of the interviewed inhabitants that the public transportation is time consuming and lack flexibility. To work around these the municipalities and the public transportation companies need to work together to be able to change people’s views and behavioral towards the public transportations.

    Algae blooms and their consequences on camping tourism on Öland, SwedenManuskript (preprint) (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    In Sweden camping tourism holds the position as one of the largest niches within the tourism accommodation sector. The camping sector represents more than 17 million or 35% of commercial overnight stays in total. On the island of Öland which is located in Kalmar county, and in Kalmar county itself, the camping sector represents more than 1.75 million or 65% of the annual overnight stays which positions Kalmar and Öland as the second largest camping region in Sweden. However, tourism businesses, and especially island tourism systems, can be vulnerable to shifting environmental conditions. In recent years, the media has highlighted the issue of harmful algae blooms frequently affecting coastlines in the Baltic Sea. Based on structured interviews, this article investigates the perceptions of campground managers and camping tourists on Öland have of the impact of algae blooms on tourism. The results show that both among campground managers and visitors, algae blooms are perceived as an environmental concern that might affect tourism in negative ways.

    Places on Öland: billlboards in the geography of showing!Manuskript (preprint) (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Knowledge about the impacts and consequences of restructuring for rural areas is important in order to sustain and develop the local labor market. Tourism has become an alternative development for many rural areas and in the effort to attract visitors and investors, local places are commodified. The distinctiveness of local places has an essential role to play in tourism development, marketing and consumption. In traditional tourism destinations with a rural location, tourism already has a strong position in the local livelihood system. However, restructuring and increasing competition is challenging for traditional destinations and many are struggling to rejuvenate their destination image. The uniqueness of distinct places becomes raw material for this struggle and the local nature, culture, art and food are used to promote the destinations and to revitalize tourism places. The results of this article show that in these processes, the local entrepreneurs and tourism enterprises have an important role to play.

    Bicycle hazards: Do intersections matter?2018Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish city of Umeå is one amongst other cities that has a focus on the increase in the bicycling usage. The municipality of Umeå aims to make public transport, bicycling and walking the most frequently used modes of transport in the city (Umeå kommun, 2017b). There are both positive and negative effects when people are using the bicycle as a mode of transportation. The positive aspects can be increase in health benefits, more environmentally friendly than other transport options and it is a relatively cheap way to transport oneself. The negative aspects can be that more people get hurt due to the risks with bicycling such as physical infrastructure related hazards. The aim of this thesis is to explore if the number of roads in an intersection has any correlation with the amount and severity of accidents and to analyse it in the scope of sustainable development and accessibility. This was done with the quantitative database STRADA which consists of both hospital data and police data on bicycles accidents in the timespan of 2008-2018. The chosen study area was Umeå but with two more specific locations: the city centre and the campus area. Two different approaches were used to utilize the data from STRADA: GIS to create descriptive maps and calculations of the bicycle accidents and logistics-regressions to investigate the accident severity relation to a certain number of chosen variables. The main findings were that it is important that every aspect of bicycling should be as safe as possible otherwise many beneficial effects with bicycling may disappear, such as the ones with sustainable development and accessibility. The results show that there was one type of intersection that had relevance and that was the intersections with three roads in it. Three road intersections were significant in two ways. The first way was that it caused an increased risk in more severe accidents and the second way had an opposite relationship and this was depending on what type of geographical place one was looking at. As with other risk factors there were many variables that affected the outcome of the risk. In Umeå it seemed that people that were over age 39, accidents with vehicles and winter were factors alongside with the three road intersections.

    Abstract

    The purpose of this interview study was to investigate parents’ choice of travel mode for their child and behavioral change towards sustainable travel. The study was conducted in Umeå, a city in northern Sweden, in March and April 2019. The interview focused on parents describing from travel journals one week of their child’s travel arrangements. The analysis of the interviews was based on The Theory of Planned Behavior (Azjen 1991). Attitude, perceived Control and Norms, lead to the Intentions to change behavior and this is described by Azjen (1991) and is also noticeable in the study conducted. Mobility Management projects in the municipalities aim to increase the use of sustainable travel modes. The parents described that the reasons for choosing their child’s mode of travel was time, distance, safety and weather conditions as determined by seasons. Some described practical reasons, age and maturity. None of the parents described health and environmental concerns when describing the choice of travel mode. The travel journals showed that most commutes were made by car, especially concerning trips to leisure activities. The intention to make changes towards sustainable travel modes varied in accordance to attitude, perceived control and norms described. Some described the child biking or taking the bus more often, others described future trips mainly by car. The norms in society is a challenge for Mobility Management projects in establishing habits towards sustainable travel modes.

    Vägens betydelse för turismen: En studie om den nya E4:ans påverkan på Sundsvalls hotellmarknad2018Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines the importance of road connection to the hotel businesses of a destination. Many destinations request a reconstruction of a connected road route due to different reasons. In this case, the highway E4 Sundsvall has undergone a road route change. The main reason why this action was requested was because the highway was affecting people's health from vehicle emissions, due to being located too close to the society. This study intends to examine the direct effects of the rerouting of the road.

    The road that earlier passed through the center of the city is now located outside of Sundsvall. This relocation was conducted mainly due to high amounts of emissions from passing vehicles. Other factors were however also included in the decision to reroute the road. A lot of research shows that there is a strong connection between transport and tourism. This could indicate that this new road location might affect the tourism flow to Sundsvall in a negative way since less people now have to drive through the city. To examine this case, documentation from the project have been studied to understand the expected outcomes of the project. Previous research studies has also been used to gain a deeper understanding of the subject, so that comparisons and analyses can be made in this paper. Passenger statistics across the bridge of Sundsvall has also been collected. This data is used to see the activity on the road, and thus be able to draw back to the purpose of the study. The results however shows that the hotel market in Sundsvall has seen a rise in guest nights and occupied rooms since the new road construction. The project of Sundsvall E4 and previous studies implies the development of a destination. In conclusion, the increase in hotel sales might be linked to city development. This means that in the end, the road route change seems to have a positive connection to the hotel market in Sundsvall, not directly but indirectly because of the changes the city has undergone due to the relocation of the new E4 highway.

    ”It is a huge wealth with languages and cultures”: Administrative Municipalities and Minority Languages in Sweden2015Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis will focus on the seven Swedish administrative municipalities that administer at least two of the three official minority languages in Sweden. Those languages are Finnish Meänkieli (Torne Valley Finnish) and Saami languages and all of these languages are territorially bound to the northernmost area in Sweden. The thesis depart from a new law (SFS 2009:724) that went into practice in 2010. The new law is based on new directives from the European Council to promote and protect regional- and minority languages which is part of a change of paradigm where the value of minority languages has been emerging. This will be investigated by using the ecology of languages-theory which is both described in a global setting and in the Swedish context as well. Language planning is also included to illustrate what is needed to increase status for minority languages. The data collection method for this thesis has been interviews where minority language officials from all seven municipalities included in this thesis are represented.

                          From this thesis it become evident that the language planning theory is important when studying this subject. To some extent also the ecology of language theory can be applied regarding these issues on minority languages in the Swedish setting. The respondents in this thesis only had positive opinions on the new legislation even though there are some things which could develop. For instance the respondents said that they could see minorities that have become more proud and willing to show their minority language and culture. Some of the most important conclusions from this thesis are that an overall perspective is important for the minority languages. Also, the majority population should get the opportunity to understand the minority situation and learn about their language and culture.

    Flyttprocessens påverkan på identiteten – utveckling eller avveckling?: En fallstudie kring flytten av Hjalmar Lundbohmsgården i Kiruna2013Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats syftar till att undersöka och analysera hur tre olika aktörer kopplade till samhällsomvandlingen i Kirunas centrala delar, i detta fall LKAB, Kiruna kommun samt Länsstyrelsen Norrbotten, anser hur identiteten kring ett byggnadsminnesmärkt kulturarv påverkas genom en framtida flytt. Vidare undersöks vilken inverkan byggnaden kan ha i den framtida staden. Uppsatsen har sin utgångspunkt kring en ny framtida placering av Hjalmar Lundbohmsgården.

     

    Studien är baserad på en kvalitativ ansats där fem informanter från tre olika aktörer; LKAB, Kiruna kommun samt Länsstyrelsen Norrbotten har intervjuats. Intervjuerna har sedan analyserats genom tematisk analys, där en kombination av teoretisk tematisk analys och empirisk tematisk analys använts.

     

    Resultatet av intervjuerna visar att Hjalmar Lundbohmsgårdens nya placering bör hamna i en lämplig kontext nära andra kulturbyggnader. Samtliga informanter är eniga om att tillgängligheten är en grundläggande faktor där en synergieffekt är ett ökat besökarantal. Det största kulturella värdet kring Hjalmar Lundbohmsgården är Hjalmar Lundbohm och hans gärningar, vilket gör att identiteten fortfarande kan vidareförmedlas trots att platsen inte är densamma. Informanterna är överens om att det är viktigt med kulturella referenser i en stad så människorna har något att förhålla sig till.

    Economic values in theSwedish nature-based recreation sector: a synthesis2012Ingår i: Tourism Economics, ISSN 1354-8166, E-ISSN 2044-0375, Vol. 18, nr 4, s. 903-910Artikel, forskningsöversikt (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This research synthesis reports the main findings from a review of economic values associated with nature-based recreation in Sweden. The purpose of the work was to support policy and to identify areas for future research. Data came from over 150 scientific publications and other public sources. The authors find inter alia a lack of systematic data for several recreation activities (including naturebased tourism), a significant growth in the outdoor equipment industry and a relatively modest economic involvement by the public sector. The information is structured under different categories to illustrate the significance and range of different economic values. The authors conclude that there is a need for more comprehensive and systematically collected data, methodological development and interdisciplinary research.

    Resmönster & attityder: En studie kring resmönster och attityder för Österbotten och Västerbotten region2019Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 180 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Finns visit Sweden to a greater extent than Swedes visit Finland. This travel pattern also holds true for the regional travel pattern between Österbotten and Västerbotten. This study examines if the distinctive travel habits of each population and the attitudes towards each other can explain the uneven travel pattern between the two regions.

    Tourism between Österbotten and Västerbotten is a valuable source of income for both regions. In order to further develop the tourism routes between the regions, it’s important to examine their travel habits, motives and attitudes. Furthermore, this study will gather in depth data on size of travel groups, travel frequency, travel companionship and common destinations.

    An mixed methods approach will be used in order to understand and explain the uneven travel patterns between both regions. Data is collected through an online survey published in both Österbotten and Västerbotten. The results show differences and similarities between how the populations of both regions tend to travel. These differences could support an explanation for the uneven travel patterns between the regions. The empirical data shows that the populations of both regions hold predjucice attitudes towards each other. However, this only affects travel patterns from Västerbotten to Österbotten negatively.

    Who is taking care of the passenger?: Are there any motives for a governmental funded passenger organization in Sweden?2015Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Sweden lacks a powerful advocate who can represent the passengers in the public transport sector. In conjunction with the liberalization of the public transport market, the bus and rail services that have been opened up for competition and the allocation of responsibility within public transport has been divided into a several amount of actors. The liberalization has been positive for the passengers by a wider supply of transport services and also resulted in new service incentives. Within the commercial rail traffic market there is now a variety of tickets in different price ranges. The railway has also been vertical separated into operating traffic and infrastructure management, which have resulted in uncertain accountability at disruptions, for passengers such as the traffic operators. Since the Swedish Transport Administration Trafikverket nowadays procures the maintenance of the railway, the authority has been criticized losing control over their facility.

    The new Public Transport Act was introduced in 2010 and provides the local and regional public transport to be procured by the regional public transport authorities. They decide which traffic in the region that should be offered as obligated service that will be subsidised. The state has been reticent in interfering with the regional authorities but has simultaneously in several governmental investigations identified shortcomings in public transport, for example in the systems for ticketing and information. On voluntary bases the industry has been collaborated since a long time for developing such common platforms but the progress has been slow. However the actors introduced a common digital portal for information and ticketing in January 2015.

    In Denmark and in the United Kingdom there are governmental funded passenger organizations today that comprise operations in quality measurements of public transport and offering support to vulnerable passengers. The organizations are trying to achieve improvements in supply, or demand economic compensation for the passengers in case of traffic disruption.

    With the Government's recent appropriation direction to Trafikverket, the authority now may support non-profit organizations activities that harmonize with the national transport policy objectives, which mean that financial support could be disbursed to the non-profit passenger organization Resenärsforum, which is the leading passenger organization in Sweden today. An establishment of a new authority, to ensure the passengers' interests would require a more comprehensive governmental investigation. Rather, the state needs to take responsibility by establishing a national traffic service program that could clarify the division of responsibilities among existing authorities. That could also comprise commission for actors, as well public as private, for example in operation passenger information at traffic disruptions.

    Strategier för fritidshusturism? En översikt av Sveriges kommuner2017Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (högskoleexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to investigate policies regarding second home planning in the Swedish municipalities. To do so content analysis was conducted on the regulation document called översiktsplan (translated into English layout plan, land-use plan or sketch plan) of all 290 Swedish municipalities. The ´översiktsplan´ is a document containing directions, policies, guidelines and recommendations for land use in the municipality. Swedish law dictates that all municipalities must have such a document.

     

    This study addresses the phenomenon second homes and second home tourism in the perspective of the destination, in this study represented by the Swedish municipalities regulation document called översiktsplan. Previous research has been taken into account, both concerning Sweden, the Nordic countries and countries in different parts of the world, to describe the phenomenon. The study aims to describe municipality´s characteristics and to analyse the geographical placement of the municipality. This is done by plotting a map over Sweden with the municipalities classified depending on their degree of policies regarding second homes. Then, a comparison with the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions classification of Swedish municipalities 2017 was made to analyse the characteristics of municipalities having policies for second homes.

     

    Of the 290 (100 %) Swedish municipalities there are 217 (74,8 %) that have made policies and preparations regarding second homes and these directions are shown in the översiktsplan. The result shows a clear pattern within the Swedish municipalities regarding directions, policies, guidelines and recommendations concerning second homes. Municipalities containing a minor urban area that accommodate less than 40 000 inhabitants and geographically placed nearby an urban area containing more than 40 000 inhabitants, nearby a ski resort or by the shoreline do have a higher preparation and planning regarding second homes.

    Forests, Forestry and the Water Framework Directive in Sweden: A Trans-Disciplinary Commentary2011Ingår i: Forests, ISSN 1999-4907, E-ISSN 1999-4907, Vol. 2, nr 1, s. 261-282Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The Water Framework Directive (WFD) is an ambitious piece of legislation designed to protect and improve water quality throughout Europe. However, forests are only mentioned once in the WFD, and forestry is not mentioned at all, despite its potential implications for streams, rivers and lakes. Here we present a transdisciplinary commentary on the WFD and its implications for forests and forestry in Sweden. This commentary has been prepared by forestry stakeholders, biophysical and social scientists. While we were cognizant of a large body of discipline-specific research, there are very few inter-or trans-disciplinary commentaries which link academic and stakeholder perspectives on the WFD. We had originally felt that there would be little commonality in our concerns. However, we found significant areas of agreement. Our key areas of concern about the implications of the WFD for forestry in Sweden included: (i) concerns about what is meant by good ecological status and how it is assessed; (ii) a perceived lack of clarity in the legal framework; (iii) an inadequate environmental impact assessment process; and (iv) uncertainties about appropriate programs of measures for improving water quality. We were also concerned that ecosystem services provided by forests and the positive effects of forestry on water quality are inadequately recognized in the WFD.

    Parkeringsstrategier: Ett verktyg i arbetet mot hållbart resande?2017Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    In the past decades car use and car ownership has increased significantly. This has caused problems of traffic congestion, air pollution and noise disturbance. Creating an attractive society that is socially, economically and ecologically sustainable has consequently become more important in planning. By implementing parking policies the amount of parking spaces can be controlled. This can affect the traveling patterns and the choice of transport mode, which furthermore can contribute to sustainable mobility. For that reason the aim of this study is to illustrate how three municipalities in Sweden work with parking strategies and if or how these strategies contribute to sustainable mobility.

    By studying parking documents and complementing interviews through thematic analyse in Västerås, Luleå and Umeå, parking strategies are identified. Furthermore the identified strategies are categorised by Banisters (2008) theories of sustainable mobility to determine which strategies that can contribute to sustainable mobility. A literature study is also made to get an overview of the knowledge within the subject regarding parking strategies.

    The result shows that the studied municipalities work with several parking strategies that contribute to sustainable mobility, although the municipalities are recommended to work further with strategies that relates to technical development and increased public awareness. Themes that are identified within the data are; sustainable transport, parking-fee, and time-regulation, lower amount of car parks and effectivization. Furthermore the result demonstrates several parking strategies within the themes, which shows some similarities and some differences from each other, depending on the municipality.

    Socio-economic Selective Migration and Counter-Urbanisation: A case-study of the Stockholm area2013Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates the relocation behaviours of out-movers of deprived areas in the region of Stockholm, Sweden. The research is motivated by the concerns raised by deprived and segregated neighbourhoods in relation to a social fragmentation and an unsuccessful socio-economic inclusion of all citizens. Some researches affirm that the out-movers of deprived neighbourhoods tend to be more integrated than the stayers or the individual moving in such neighbourhoods. And if some studies are concerned about their prospective, they have been restricted to their destinations’ socio-economic features and dismissed any spatial approach.This study aims to analyse flows’ direction and features as well as the areas of destination such as to identify processes of selective migration and how socio-spatial disparities are (re)produced. A specific attention is given to counter-urban movements and their possible correlation to “preservation” objectives: The possible migration of lower classes toward peripheries in order to access a better living environment and avoid a forced economic selective migration toward the urban most deprived neighbourhoods.Descriptive and inferential statistics with binary logistic regressions enabled to put into exergue the selective migration among movers, between the counter-urban and the others but also among counter-urban. If most movers remain in the urban core and in an almost deprived area, a substantial proportion seeks to combine to a move “up” the social ladder (a better suited neighbourhood), a “downward” migration on the urban hierarchy (a move toward the peripheries). And the regression confirms that among this population, a segment is statically significantly disadvantaged and remains in rental after the move.Scholars should consider such evidences by including a spatial dimension to their studies on segregation, neighbourhood sorting processes and selective migration. And most importantly, the results of this study invite them to reassess the traditional life-style and life-cycle explanations of counter-urbanisation in favour of an economic driven migration.

    Abstract [sv]

    Vikande befolkningstal i de flesta delarna av Västerbotten aktualiserar frågan om var Västerbottens befolkning flyttar samt varifrån de som flyttar in till Västerbotten kommer ifrån. Som en del i kartläggningen av länets tillgångar redovisar denna rapport i vilka riktningar dessa migrationsflöden går samt vid vilken ålder människor flyttar in och ut ur Västerbotten. Vidare har användandet av en statistisk modell beräknat olika faktorers inverkan på beslutet att flytta till, från och inom Västerbotten baserat på den så kallade gravitationsmodellens antaganden.

    Meeting the 'organs': the tacit dilemma of field research in authoritarian states2013Ingår i: Area (London 1969), ISSN 0004-0894, E-ISSN 1475-4762, Vol. 45, nr 4, s. 426-432Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    To the regret of many scholars, science and politics often overlap, and nowhere as clearly as inside countries ruled by authoritarian governments, where research tends to attract the surveillance of repressive authorities and, more specifically, of the secret services (known as the organ' within post-communist space). While such surveillance places significant ethical and methodological challenges on field research, it is rarely discussed in the literature. This paper discusses what may happen when the organ takes interest in fieldwork. Based on the author's experiences in a range of post-communist countries, the aim is to present and discuss the related risks, and to show how these may materialise in relation to the organ's (c)overt activities.

    Abstract [en]

    Labor migration from the less to the more affluent cities and regions is a defining trait of the patterns of population redistribution in Central and Eastern Europe, especially in the former Soviet Union, where international disparities in income and living standards are particularly manifest. While these macro-trends are well portrayed in the literature, their outcome at the household level seldom figures in the literature. In Ukraine, labor out-migration to Russia is a frequently chosen strategy, not least because of the Russophone background of eastern Ukraine and of many of the major cities, including Kiev and Odessa. This out-migration contributes to urban decline. Using multivariate methods, we analyze the characteristics of population subgroups with and without the experience of working abroad. We also use descriptive statistics to assess the impact of migration events within households on the standard of living of the latter. Our data source is the city of Stakhanov Health Interview Survey 2009 (n = 3,000).

    Soviet housing: Who built what and when? The case of Daugavpils,Latvia2010Ingår i: Journal of Historical Geography, ISSN 0305-7488, E-ISSN 1095-8614, Vol. 36, nr 4, s. 453-465Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Throughout much of the Soviet period, access to housing was a major consideration, both for individual citizens and employers intent on increasing their number of employees. Because of the heavy emphasis on industry, and despite the progress made within the area since the late 1950s, Soviet urban residential provision never managed to fully recover from the acute housing shortage that characterized the Stalin years. In this paper, we address the quantitative side of housing construction during the socialist era. Using the mid-sized diversified industrial town of Daugavpils (Latvia) as a case study, we set out to investigate the extent to which employers were involved in decisions concerning housing provision. To do this, we consult a large volume of archival records, our focus being on documents tracing entries indicating that new living quarters were ready and could be allocated to employees of sponsoring organizations and enterprises.

    Adoption of e-Commerce in micro tourism firms located in Umeå2016Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    A new and an effective Internet business model such as electronic commerce (e-Commerce) has obtained great importance in the tourism industry (Li & Suomi, 2008). e-Commerce has great importance also for small firms. Despite this, the majority of  literature concerning  tourism and e-Commerce does not tend to discuss the adoption of e-Commerce within small and medium sized firms (SMEs), whereas most studies have focused on the information that can be found on broader aspects of the Internet and ICT (Abou-Shouk, Lim & Megicks, 2013). The same is applicable for the smallest type of SMEs namely micro firms. In general, as Sandberg & Håkansson (2014) noted little research has been done concerning e-Commerce adoption in micro firms and they are mainly using quantitative research methods. Besides, in the tourism industry the study of e-Commerce adoption by small businesses are considered as an emergent area where limited research has been conducted yet (Thomas, Shaw, & Page, 2011). Similarly, very little research has been done regarding geographical aspects of e-Commerce. Usually, e-Commerce and its impact on firms and people have been investigated by disciplines outside of geography (Boschma & Weltevreden, 2005). Thus, from a scientific perspective e-Commerce adoption (including spatial aspects) in micro tourism firms remains under-researched. It is unclear to what extent micro tourism firms adopt e-Commerce and what is spatial impact of e-Commerce adoption and if there are any barriers that inhibit that adoption.

    The aim of this study is to investigate adoption of e-Commerce in micro tourism firms located in Umeå, Sweden, especially, to describe levels of e-Commerce adoption in micro tourism firms and to analyze the barriers that inhibit e-Commerce adoption within them. The choice of the place can be justified by the fact that Sweden is ranked relatively high in firms’ ICT usage, thus, it is interesting to investigate e-Commerce adoption in micro firms. Moreover, there are many micro firms in Umeå which can become relevant subjects for this study. In order to find out the level of e-Commerce adoption it was applied one of the widely used e-Commerce adoption stage models. In terms of barriers of e-Commerce adoption after discussion of the main literature in relation to barriers, the emphasis was on the literature discussing barriers in Swedish SMEs. The study was qualitative research and was conducted using semi-structured interview approach to conduct interviews in 10 micro tourism firms specializing in accommodation provision. All participating firms in this study were somehow e-Commerce adopters. The data was analyzed using thematic analysis.

    The conclusion of this study is that most of the micro tourism firms in Umeå are still developing e-Commerce and are at the lower level of e-Commerce adoption, except from two firms which are at the advanced levels of adoption. All participating firms use e-Commerce to lesser extent to penetrate to distant, international market. Instead, the micro tourism firms in this study use e-Commerce mostly for serving local, Swedish market.  The main barriers that inhibit e-Commerce adoption within these micro tourism firms that are identified in this study are a firm small size, a lack of pressure from customers, a lack of “local” support, a lack of managers'/owners' own e-Commerce experience, a lack of knowledge and concerns in relation to the difficulties to meet growing customers' demand.

    Abstract [en]

    Downhill skiing in the Swedish mountain range is an activity that increases in number of visitors for each year. It attracts a large amount of tourist that visit the destinations for different reasons. In order to succeed amongst the amount of destinations, it ́s necessary to differentiate themselves from competitors, and work out a clear strategy of attracting visitors to their own destination.

    The aim of this study is to examine how Swedish destinations that offers downhill skiing to tourist works to create attractiveness. This is studied with factors such as competitive advantages between destinations, loyalty towards the tourists, how the organization in the destination works with segments and target groups, and at last, how accessibility affects the number of visitors. This has been done through semistructured informant interviews, with managers in the area at four different destinations in the Swedish mountain range, together with literature studies of previous studies in the field. The result of the study tells us about how the destinations work and their strategies to expand and attract more visitors. Many of the destinations consider loyalty as one of the most important factors for a successful destination in the long run. The result also shows how competitive advantages are a fundamental part of differentiating themselves from others, to have a clear vision of what they can offer, facilitates efforts to attract visitors.

    Insurance sector management of climate change adaptation in three Nordic countries: the influence of policy and market factors2017Ingår i: Journal of Environmental Planning and Management, ISSN 0964-0568, E-ISSN 1360-0559, Vol. 60, nr 9, s. 1601-1621Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The insurance industry is important for facilitating climate change adaptation. Insurance companies' involvement is, however, influenced by national adaptation policy. The literature suggests that especially policy factors - government interventions, political priorities and public-private cooperation - and market factors - cost offset, cost mitigation, planning flexibility and business opportunities - shape private actor approaches. To increase the understanding of insurance company involvement in adaptation, this study examines how insurance companies' approaches are influenced by policy and market factors in three countries: Denmark, Norway and Sweden. The study found that the policy factors tested significantly shaped the approaches of the companies assessed, while market factors currently appear less influential. This is likely due to the absence of climate risk and adaptation in political debates and among insurance policyholders. The study discusses the potential role of the insurance industry in adaptation governance and suggests how barriers facing insurance companies could be overcome.

    Exploring Predictors of Life Satisfaction among Native-born Adults in Sweden2016Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (magisterexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on the data from Round 6 of the European Social Survey (ESS), this research study investigates what factors determine life satisfaction in Sweden. Specifically, this paper provides a new look at both the effect of household income on life satisfaction and how personal feelings about household income and the degree of social inclusion mediate the effect of income on life satisfaction. These effects are estimated by the ordinary least squares (OLS) regression models with robust standard error estimates. The results indicate that individual perception of income is more important for life satisfaction than the total amount of revenue. Moreover, the presence of close people to talk to is an essential predictor of subjective well-being. Persons with a high number of people with whom they can discuss intimate and personal matters were found to have a significantly higher life satisfaction than respondents with poor social contacts or no close contacts at all. Overall, the household income effect disappears once the analysis is controlled for these two personalised indicators. In this case, regional differences in well-being in Sweden at NUTS 2 level also vanish. Those findings suggest that Swedish regions provide equally high living standards for all citizens.

    Abstract [en]

    In a time where many municipalities have an ambition to increase their population, new buildings have to be established at the same time the future value of agricultural land has increased largely the last few decades. This can create dividing lines where the value of farmland stands against new construction. In the 1970s much settlements were added to agricultural land in the municipality of Piteå. At this point there were no clear regulations of the land use resource value. In the current situation the municipality wants to densify the settlement and this creates problems as the law says that usable agricultural land can’t be established if it doesn’t satisfy an essential social interest. In this study, the municipality of Piteå and Länsstyrelsen Norrbotten’s relation to the conservation of agricultural land has been investigated to find out if there is any differences and if so in what way that is expressed.

    Abstract [en]

    The ambition to involve younger people in future planning processes in order to get full participation of all groups in the society requires a deep and well-planned dialogue. Although, participation not always means inclusion. The purpose of this study was to analyze how the younger generation in the society is included in the future work. This is based on a case study of the developmental work in the municipality of Skellefteå.

    Questions that were answered were how the municipality has made the participation possible? To what extent has the younger generation been involved? How did this group experience their participation? The methodology consisted of mixed methods that include observations, surveys to the session leaders and to the participants in the dialogue and three interviews with two participants and one municipal civil servant.

    The result showed that the open information didn´t reach the younger generation to the open dialogues although the dialogue design gave good conditions for participation. Also the younger had highrepresentativeness of the dialogue thanks to outreach meetings, but that a greater ambition to get them to the open meetings may lead to greater inclusion in the future work of the municipality.
