    Vad förklarar Sverigedemokraternas relativa valframgång?: Hur röstbeteendet i de Skånska kommunvalen 2018 påverkades av ekonomisk-strukturella faktorer2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to investigate the relative success of Swedish right-wing party Swedish Democrats in the municipal election of 2018. The focus of this paper is to see how the voting behaviour could be explained using socioeconomic variables.

    The study consists of statistics from SCB concerning level of education, income, number of immigrants in the municipality and if the municipality receives benefits from the government from the 33 municipalities in the region of Skane, Sweden.

    The results shows that there is a correlation between the high education and income voters have in municipality and their tendency to vote for the Swedish Democrats. Those municipalities where most citizens have a higher education and a higher income where municipalities where the Swedish Democrats did not receive a lot of votes. There results did however not show a correlation between the number of votes for the Swedish Democrats and the number of immigrants living in the municipalities.

    Frihet under ansvar?: En studie av åren med motboken och kvinnors rättigheter 1919-19552018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to investigate the economic-historical development of the Swedish restriction system against alcohol abuse. It has been of interest to examine how it was designed and then implemented during the period of 1919–1955.

    The study includes a discussion on how the restrictions affected women's opportunities to acquire alcohol, based on gender norms. Therefore, the thesis has been strengthened by a gender-based analysis.

    The material that has been studied for the purpose is real decisions by the government for men and women who have applied for the right of purchasing alcohol.

    This paper has found that men were more often granted their applications, and because women had more difficult conditions. The reason seems to be that gender norms ruled higher than the formal rights.

     

    Key words: economic history, gender, alcohol, restriction system

    Flottning i Västerbotten: Avvecklandet av flottningen i Umeälven mellan 1930-19802018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay will present the driving forces behind the liquidation of log-driving from 1930 to log-drivings end in 1980 in Umeälven. The debate about the log-drivers status in the river was multifold. The locals saw log-driving as an inhibiting process where, besides work, nothing good came. The hydroelectric stations saw the log-driving as an unnecessary tool because the hydroelectric stations had a larger purpose and were more prosperous than the log-driving. The underlying factors that evoked the log-drivings dismantling were several. Local people, fishing, hydro, but also the increased demand for forest and technology development. The timber became less ”float-friendly” and the forest road network was developed so that trucks became a more efficient and cheaper alternative, which led to the fact that log-floating was an unnecessary tool for the forest industry.
