Vilken sorts regionalism? : Regionalism och regionskapande i norra Europas periperier (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

"What Kind of Regionalism?" is a comparative study of regionalism and region building in two northern European regions – Meclenburg-Western Pomerania in Germany and Norrbotten in Sweden. The aim of the thesis is to investigate what kind of regionalism is emerging in regions that are neither economically successful nor regarded as 'ethnic communities'. The study demonstrates that in both regions, there are 'civic' and new regionalist tendencies side by side with more romanticist, culturalizing, 'old' regionalist traits. One of the conclusions, therefore, is that the presumed difference between old forms of ethno-regionalism and new regionalism needs to be nuanced. Another conclusion is that regionalism needs to be analyzed as an instance of a political ideology that rests on certain set of norms, values and ways of conceptualize society.

Abstract [sv]

"Vilken sorts regionalism?" är en komparativ studie av regionalism och regionskapande i två nordeuropeiska regioner – Mecklenburg-Vorpommern i Tyskland och svenska Norrbotten. Syftet med avhandlingsarbetet har varit att undersöka vilken sorts regionalism som uppstår i regioner som varken är ’etniskt’ eller kulturellt definierade eller kan räknas till de ’nya’, expansiva tillväxtregionerna i Europas mitt. Studien visar på att det i båda regioner finns såväl civiska, nyregionala tendenser som mer romantiska, kulturaliserade drag. En av de slutsatser som förs fram är därför att den skarpa gräns som ibland dras mellan ’gammal’, etno-regionalism och nyregionalism måste nyanseras. En annan slutsats är att regionalism kan och bör studeras som en ideologi bestående av vissa bestämda normer, värderingar och föreställningar.
