    Citizens' views on governance in two Swedish city-regions2018In: Journal of Urban Affairs, ISSN 0735-2166, E-ISSN 1467-9906, Vol. 40, no 1, p. 117-129Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Starting from metropolitan governance theory, this article explores and discusses place-specific institutional preferences among Swedish citizens with regard to city-regional governance. City-regional tendencies in the Swedish political context are described and, specifically, survey data from the Umeå and Göteborg areas in Sweden are utilized in two ways. First, three ideal-typical governance categories are conceptualized drawing on empirical patterns in the survey material. Preferences for the three emergent categories Status Quo, Regionalization, and Consolidation are then tested against independent variables measuring personal resources, sense of place, mobility, political view, and city-regional context. By way of multiple regression analysis, the article concludes with a discussion about some expected and unexpected results. In the final analysis, individual preferences for the three different models of city-regional governance seem to be influenced first and foremost by level of education and sense of place and whether or not the individual resides in a municipality which belongs to the core or to the periphery of the area.

    Security perspectives from Sweden2020In: Routledge handbook of Arctic security / [ed] Gunhild Hooghensen Gjörv, Marc Lanteigne and Horatio Sam-Aggey, Abingdon: Taylor & Francis, 2020, 1, p. 208-217Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this chapter, some of the core ideas underpinning Swedish security policy are described and discussed. In an effort to tease out whether or not these ideas also have an Arctic dimension, their contemporary scope and meaning in the Swedish political context is illustrated by ideas concerning geopolitical framing, agenda-setting, and military doctrine. The 2011–2013 Swedish chairmanship of the Arctic Council stands out both as a starting point and as an ideational vanguard for Swedish ideas about Arctic security. The chapter concludes that the Swedish chairmanship represented a unique opportunity to shift security perceptions, but that this did not happen. Swedish security perceptions seem to remain firmly rooted in the Baltic Sea Region. Short of outright military conflict, a domestic political sea change regarding NATO membership can be seen as the potential "game changer."

    Sweden and Poland Entering the EU: Comparative Patterns of Adaptive Organization and Cognition2005Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is a comparative study of how elites in Sweden and Poland approach and make sense of EU membership. It begins with the observation that the public debates in several EU member countries are becoming increasingly politicized around a dichotomy, i.e. enthusiasm and skepticism vis-à-vis European integration. Whereas a lot of research in this field covers the characteristics of the European integration process itself, fewer studies focus upon the cognitive complexity involved in national strategic policy choices. The aim of this thesis is to explore, compare and contrast the organizational and cognitive aspects of how Sweden and Poland entered the EU and thereby to contribute to an understanding of how national policymakers in Europe believe that national and supranational integration can work together. The theoretical point of departure is Stein Rokkan’s model of political integration, which emphasizes the importance of functional and territorial political cleavages in the development of modern European nation states. The model is used to identify political actors and structures that are transnationalizing forces in Europe and to determine in what ways they form a challenge to national governments in the process of adaptation to the EU. Representing different theoretical points of intersection in the Rokkanian model, these challenges are defined as Integration, Trade and Industry, Functional Regionalism and Territorial Regionalism. The empirical analysis builds on these theoretical categories and covers three different areas. First, the ways in which adaptation to the EU was organized by the governments of Sweden (1988-1994) and Poland (1998-2004) are scrutinized. Second, documents concerning the strategic policy deliberation of both organizations are analyzed in the light of Rokkanian integration categories. Third, the results of two sets of research interviews, one in each country, are analyzed. A major conclusion drawn in the study is that Rokkanian integration theory holds the key to an understanding of how national policymakers believe that European integration can be segmented and how supranational integration in the economic sphere can evolve separately from other areas of social and political integration. Although from very different countries and political experiences, elites in Sweden and Poland show remarkable cognitive similarities. Another contribution to a cross-national understanding of adaptation to the EU is the cognitive model, which is developed on the basis of empirical study. The model expands upon and goes beyond the simple dichotomy of Enthusiasts and Skeptics in the discussion about European integration. Two new categories are introduced and defined as Voluntarists and Pragmatists. The argument is that new cognitive categories are necessary to improve the description and analysis of how national policy makers in Europe set up long-term political goals and manage complex issues in the process of European integration.

    Sweden: federalism in the land of centrally guided regionalization2013In: Routledge handbook of regionalism and federalism / [ed] John Loughlin; John Kincaid; Wilfried Swenden, Abingdon & New York: Routledge, 2013, 1, p. 318-332Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In many states, federalism is considered self-evident as a constitutional principle. Many unitary European states, which were formerly strongly unified, are now opening up to variants of federal thinking. Federal ideas and institutional principles are also pivotal to the debate on how to shape and reshape the European Union (EU). Some would even argue that the experimentation with different forms of multi-level governance, which is prevalent in most European countries today, emanates from the multitude of opportunities and cross-pressures inherent in European integration. In Sweden, the constitutional two-tier format with a strong central government and autonomous local governments remained undisputed since the inception of democracy in the 1920s. For centuries, governments and other leading political forces in the country held predominantly instrumental views of political institutions, favouring a strong central power and uniform statehood. Since the 1990s, however, federal ideas have gained some support among political parties as well as among independent debaters. Despite Sweden seemingly being the least likely case for federalism, this chapter aims at investigating how significant this support is and how likely it is that Sweden would move in a federalist direction.

    The Swedish chairmanship: foresight and hindsight in Arctic activism2019In: Leadership for the North: the influence and impact of Arctic Council Chairs / [ed] Douglas C. Nord, Cham: Springer, 2019, 1, p. 71-88Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish Chairmanship of the Arctic Council 2011– 2013 still holds many of the keys in understanding Sweden's overall stance in Arctic affairs. When Sweden took the chair in early 2011, many Observers were skeptical of its likely impact on the region not only because the organization and its role in circumpolar economic and social development were contested at the time. There were also misgivings about Sweden's role as a "reluctant" Arctic nation. Sweden, nevertheless, contributed during its term as Chair of the Arctic Council to significant organizational revitalization and moving its Arctic agenda on soft security concerns forward. The chapter revisits the leadership goals, strategies, roles and achievements of the Swedish Chairmanship. These are then compared and contrasted with subsequent Swedish activity within the Council. The potential for a Swedish return to an active leadership role in the Arctic is then considered against the background of a changing international setting and increased policy relevance of the Arctic to Sweden.

    Teacher education in social science in Sweden in historical and comparative perspectives2009In: Journal of Social Science Education, E-ISSN 1618-5293, Vol. 8, no 2, p. 81-93Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we will examine teacher education in social science. In the Swedish context, teacher education is part of the university system, but teacher education in social science is differently organized than social science education for other students. Teacher education in social science today is also, as a result of the deregulation at all levels of the Swedish educational system in the 1990s, locally designed and there are significant differences between universities. The aim of this paper is twofold. The first aim is to explore the roots of the current situation in the history of teacher education in social science in Sweden from the mid 1900s and into the early 2000s. The other aim is to describe and discuss comparatively how this education is organized at different Swedish universities today. The analysis revolves around questions about disciplinarity, organization and teacher education as a “trading zone” between the traditional academic disciplinary organization of social science and the conceived needs of the school subject Civics.

    Abstract [en]

    Geopolitics as a field was originally intended as a theoretical modelling of the relationship between fixed geographical circumstances and political choice. Now, the field is largely dominated by critical studies. It is almost considered axiomatic to include geopolitics as a theme in descriptive and analytical studies of the Arctic in global, regional, national and local contexts. This essay aims to review the core tenets of geopolitical thought and trace the categories and distinctions between the classical and critical approaches as applied in Arctic scholarship. It draws on highlights from the Arctic policy texts of three states demonstrating how assumptions and political options in terms of Arctic geographies can be expressed in different geopolitical frameworks. It is argued that revisiting and reviewing the core categories of geopolitics and their application in Arctic affairs can contribute to a better-informed understanding of how developments in the Arctic may unfold, as well as provide insights into the different functionalities of geopolitics.
