    Changing locations – Central or peripheral moves of seniors’ residential mobility.2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Increasing shares of elderly in European populations have initiated debates about where and how they will reside. Our main hypothesis is that when moving in this phase of life the most common move would be a move from a suburban location in owner occupation to a more centrally located apartment. This would be in line with the discussion that older people when they retire or the children have moved out want to take part in the culture of city living, such as concerts, theatres and museums in addition to enjoying a more convenient type of housing. This we argue, is the assumed residential pattern during the third age and a possible part of a mobility cycle as described by Rossi (1955). There are qualitative and survey studies pointing to such a residential mobility trend among seniors and increased mobility rates among young seniors have been shown statistically. However, quantitative tests showing a central or suburban destination and type of tenure chosen by the movers are still lacking. The aim of this study was to examine the local geographical mobility and tenure choice of older people. The analysis was made using a register database, Geoswede, comprising the total Swedish population. Moves of the cohorts born in the 1920s, 1930s and the 1940s were followed between 2001 and 2006. Using five distances to the municipal’s population core we concluded that a centralized mobility pattern could be observed among elderly movers in Sweden. The two older cohorts made such moves whereas the majority of the young cohort moved to more peripheral destinations. Also, movers from owner occupation in the cohort born in the 1940s to a larger extent move within owner occupation and make short distance moves. This is further analysed through the use of three case municipalities. Increased knowledge about the mobility rates and residential patterns of the studied cohorts, that constitute two out of nine million people in Sweden, will have an impact on planning issues.

    Changing Preferences with Ageing – Housing Choices and Housing Plans of Older People2016In: Housing, Theory and Society, ISSN 1403-6096, E-ISSN 1651-2278, Vol. 2016, no 33, p. 217-241, article id 2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Planning for the housing situation of an ageing population is one of the challenges of many countries. To increase our understanding of the needs of the ageing population, a nationwide survey stratified on age and municipality type was conducted. Research questions referred to the current housing situation and plans. The aim was to investigate how preferences, location, and/or the type of housing preferred changes with age and if they are housing market dependent. Results of 10-year cohorts show that the most marked change is between the cohort 75–84 years old and the oldest cohort 85+. There is a gradual change over time of moves from large to small housing, from owner-occupation to rented housing. Respondents in the major cities and in the rural or tourism-dependent municipalities are less inclined to move compared to those from other types of municipalities. The study predicts a shortage of rented apartments.

    Housing choices and housing plans of older people2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Planning for the housing situation of an ageing population is one of the challenges of many countries today. In Sweden housing provision is mainly a matter at the municipal level and although the municipalities do not provide housing themselves, they can facilitate for the actors to realise their housing plans and influence the situation in the housing market. In or-der to do this successfully, knowledge about the housing preferences of the different actors is crucial. Most people today remain in ordinary housing all through life. In Sweden only 5 per cent of the population aged 65 and above move to assisted living. This results in greater de-mands on the housing that is available in the ordinary housing market and on the municipali-ties in ascertaining that suitable housing is being provided. In order to increase our under-tanding of the needs and wants of the ageing population, a survey was conducted in 2013 in which the respondents answered questions about their current housing situation and their housing plans for the future. The research questions raised regarded the choice of housing location in relation to the respondents’ current housing, similarly the choice of tenure and housing size and if there are differences in the choices made depending of the age of the indi-vidual and in the type of municipality in which they live. The survey was sent out nation-wide, to 4000 people aged 55 years and older resulting in a response rate at 60,7 per cent (2400 individual), the oldest respondent being 103 years old.

    In this study the housing plans as regard location and housing type were in focus. The aim was to distinguish if there is a time in life when the locations and/or the type of housing the respondents would prefer changes, a tipping point. Preliminary results of 10 year cohorts show that the most frequent the movers are those aged 55-65 and 85 and older, the former mainly moving within the same tenure whereas the latter are more likely to change tenure, into rental housing which is more often located in central areas in the municipality.

    Housing choices and housing plans of older people – in search of a tipping point.2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Planning for the housing situation of an ageing population is one of the challenges of many countries today. In Sweden housing provision is mainly a matter at the municipal level where the municipalities take on the responsibility for facilitating for the different actors to realise their housing plans and for influencing the situation in the housing market. In order to do this successfully, knowledge about the housing preferences of the different actors is crucial. Most people today remain in ordinary housing all through life. In Sweden only 5 per cent of the population aged 65 and above move to assisted living. This results in greater demands on the housing that is available in the ordinary housing market and on the municipalities in ascertaining that suitable housing is being provided. In order to increase our understanding of the needs and wants of the ageing population, a survey named SHIELD, Survey of Housing Intentions among the ELDerly, was conducted in 2013 in which the respondents answered questions about their current housing situation and their housing plans for the future. The research questions raised regarded the choice of tenure and housing size and were stratified on age and municipality type to certify analyses of these variables. The SHIELD-survey was sent out nation-wide, to 4000 people aged 55 years and older resulting in a response rate at 60,7 per cent (2400 individual). In this study the housing preferences as regard housing, housing location and housing type were in focus in relation to age. The aim was to distinguish if there is a time in life when the preferences, locations and/or the type of housing the respondents would prefer changes, a tipping point. Preliminary results of 10 year cohorts show that the most marked change in preferences and behaviour is between the cohort 75-84 years old and the oldest cohort 85+ but it is also evident from the study that there is a gradual change over time, such as moves from large to small housing, from owner occupation to rental housing that begin already between the first two cohorts, 55–64 and 65–74 years old. The survey shows that in general respondents in the major cities and in the rural or tourism-dependent municipalities are less inclined to move compared to respondents from other types of municipalities.

    Changing locations: Central or peripheral moves of seniors2015In: Journal of Housing and the Built Environment, ISSN 1566-4910, E-ISSN 1573-7772, Vol. 30, no 4, p. 535-551Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The increasing proportion of elderly in European populations has prompted debate about where and how they will reside. Our main hypothesis is that when moving in this phase of life the most common move would be one from a suburban location in owner occupation to a more central location. This would be in line with the popular belief that older people, when they retire or when the children have moved out, want to take part in the culture of city living, such as concerts, theatres and museums in addition to enjoying a more convenient type of housing. This, we argue, is the assumed residential pattern during the third age and a possible part of a mobility cycle as described by Rossi (1955). The aim of this study was to examine the local geographical mobility and tenure of older people. The analysis was made using a register database, Geoswede, comprising the total Swedish population. Moves of the cohorts born in the 1920s, 1930s and the 1940s were followed between 2001 and 2006. Using five distances to the municipal population core a centralized mobility pattern could be observed. The two older cohorts made such moves, whereas the majority of the youngest cohort moved to peripheral destinations. From analysis of three case municipalities, it was shown that movers from owner occupation in the cohort born in the 1940s moved within owner occupation to a greater extent and made short distance moves. This type of knowledge will have an impact on planning issues.

    Western harbor in Malmö2015In: Review 11. Re-inventing planning: examples from the Profession, Rotterdam, Nederländerna: International Society of City and Regional Planners , 2015, Vol. 11, p. 210-227Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    For the last 15 years Västra hamnen (Western Harbor) in Malmö, and Hammarby Sjöstad in Stockholm have been the major flagships of Swedish international eco-city ambitions. These city development projects are presented both as leading examples of the conversion of former industrial harbor areas and of environmental adaptation of densely built urban environments. Western Harbor is a centrally located former shipyard area which, since the end of the 1990s, has developed into a mixed city area for housing, schools, offices, shops and other workplaces as well as for recreational areas with beaches, parks and yacht harbors. Since its first phase, part of a housing expo in 2001, it has attracted international interest for its dense architecture, bold energy goals based on varied local renewable energy production, household waste systems, green and blue structures, and dialogue processes. By 2031, when the area is completed, it is expected to be the home for 25,000 people and 25,000 workplaces. In 2014, there were 7,300 inhabitants and more than 12,000 work places in Western Harbor, already twice of the work force of the former shipyard at its height.

    Green and sustainable Øresund region: Eco-branding Copenhagen and Malmö2013In: Urban Sustainability: A Global Perspective / [ed] Igor Vojnovic, East Lansing, Michigan: Michigan State University Press, 2013, p. 591-610Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this chapter we discuss the recent development of the region and analyze the relation between environmental quality in the region and policy programs to undergird the image of Øresund, Copenhagen, and Malmö as green environmental forerunners of urban sustainability. Have the latter had marked impact on the environment? Or has eco-branding primarily capitalized on previous environmental improvement—much of which was exogenously driven? Is this a place where sustainable living is in the becoming? Our aim is not to provide exhaustive answers to these  questions, but more modestly to present an analysis supporting the relevance of these questions while indicating conclusions that more thorough analyses may reach.

    Abstract [sv]

    Ta med på en tur över Malmö och se staden ur ett annorlunda perspektiv. Med sitt medeltida centrum, sina kanaler, parker och boulevarder har Malmö stora strukturer som inte alltid uppfattas från gatuplanet.

    Malmö har blivit en dynamisk stad som sticker ut med en ung befolkning, multikulturell atmosfär, djärva projekt och nya byggnader som Turning Torso eller stadsdelar som Hyllievång, Västra hamnen och Ön. Men också genom dess kontraster och stora utmaningar. Hit kommer tusentals besökare för att studera exempel på hållbar stadsutveckling och övergången från industristad till kunskapsstad. Här möts gammalt och nytt vilket gör Malmö till dagens spännande stad.

    Stormän, bönder och landbor: - jordägoförhållanden i 1500-talets Kalmar län och på Öland2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I Stormän, bönder och landbor undersöks jordägofördelningen under 1500-talets första hälft i Kalmar län och på Öland. Utifrån kamerala förteckningar från denna tid studeras och beskrivs fördelningen mellan jordnaturerna: skattejord, frälsejord, kronojord, kyrkojord och arv och eget-jord.

    Med detta som utgångspunkt och syfte genomförs uppsatsens undersökning, vilken är tudelad i en kvantitativ och en kvalitativ del. I den första kvantitativa delen undersöks Kalmar län och Ölands härader och socknar beträffande jordägofördelningen under undersökningsperioden. I den andra mer kvalitativa undersökningsdelen presenteras olika förklaringsmodeller till de mönster som framträtt i den första delen.

    Tidigare forskning inom området fungerar som en teoretisk utgångspunkt eller ram för uppsatsen, och då kanske främst för den kvalitativa undersökningsdelen. Resultatet i den kvantitativa, första delen presenteras i 6 olika geografiska områden utifrån de mönster i jordägofördelningen som framträtt. Dessa tolkas därefter med hjälp av de teoretiska utgångspunkterna som inledningsvis redogjorts för. Även lokala faktorer med relevans för sammanhanget vägs in, exempelvis topografi och tidig bebyggelsestruktur i området. Därigenom framkommer uppsatsens kvalitativa resultat i form av ovan nämnda förklaringsmodeller, en för var och ett av de 6 områdena.

    I uppsatsens avslutande del presenteras resultaten från uppsatsen tematiskt utifrån de olika jordnaturerna. Samtidigt ställs uppsatsens resultat i relation med de teoretiska utgångspunkter och den tidigare forskning som finns inom området i en avslutande diskussion. Uppsatsens resultat både bekräftar vissa tidigare formulerade teorier, samtidigt som det motsäger andra teorier. Därför skulle studien kunna fungera som exempel eller på annat sätt styrka eller bestrida den tidigare, men även kommande forskning inom jordägofördelningen under medeltid eller tidigmodern tid.

    Kulturmiljöer i Vrinneviskogen: En kulturgeografisk studie i ett naturreservat2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats är fokuserad på Vrinneviskogens kulturlämningar och kulturmiljöer. Den omfattar även en kulturgeografisk studie över Vrinneviskogen. Det innebär att det geografiska rummet är koncentrerat till en geografisk yta som omfattar hela nuvarande Vrinneviskogen. Syftet med uppsatsen har varit att inventera och dokumentera  kulturlämningar och kulturmiljöer i undersökningsområdet. Jag att har undersökt områdets kulturmiljöer och orsaken till varför kulturgeografiska värden fortfarande är jämförelsevis okända i utredningar och i skötselplaner. Jag har utfört i undersökningsområdet utfört en fältinventering med både nutida och historiska kartor och med en GPS. Resultatet har sedan blivit digitaliserat till ett GIS-skikt i ett dataprogram.

    Kulturlämningarna och kulturmiljöerna i Vrinneviskogens naturreservat förekommer endast begränsat i skötselplanen över naturreservatet. Det saknades ett tillräckligt underlag och information om områdets kulturmiljöer och kulturlämningar i skötselplanen. Kulturlämningarna och kulturmiljöerna i Vrinneviskogens naturreservat är inte integrerade i skötselplanen, vilket innebär att det historiska landskapet till stora delar förblir okänt och ställt vid sidan av värden för natur och friluftsliv. Fornlämningsregistret innehöll utförlig information om fornlämningar från  bronsåldern och järnåldern i undersökningsområdet. Men fornlämningarna var mest isolerade punkter i landskapet och på kartan. Vrinneviskogens senare historia och kulturmiljöer saknas i till stora delar fornminnesregistret. Det som återstår är ett fragmentariskt kulturlandskap, utan koppling mellan de olika tidperioderna som format 2000-talets landskap i Vrinneviskogen. Vid min fältundersökning hösten och vintern 2009-2010 upptäcktes och registrerades 122 st. nya kulturlämningar. Det historiska kartmaterialet innehöll värdefull information om äldre kulturmiljöer i undersökningsområdet. Genom att studera informationen på häradskartan, de äldre och de yngre ekonomiska kartorna och jämföra den i fält kunde drygt 80 % av ruiner efter torp och backstugor återfinnas i fält.

    Många av de upptäckta kulturlämningarna hade inte registrerats vid tidigare inventeringar, särskilt de många stenbrotten, torplämningarna, stenmurarna och de fossila åkrarna. Fältinventeringen innebar en avsevärd förändrad bild av kulturlämningarna i undersökningsområdet. Min undersökning visa att Vrinneiskogen utgör ett i värdefullt och intressant landskap i centrala Norrköping. Men det finns samtidigt goda förutsättningar att lyfta fram Vrinneviskogens kulturgeografi och kulturmiljöer för olika målgrupper. Något som positivt skulle bidra med detta är att synliggöra kulturhistorien och dess människor som levt i Vrinneviskogen till nya generationer genom särskilda informationstavlor och skyltar i landskapet samt broschyrer och kartor.

    Counteracting Segregation: Swedish Policies and Experiences2010In: Housing Studies, ISSN 0267-3037, E-ISSN 1466-1810, Vol. 25, no 2, p. 237-256Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The issue of residential segregation has been on the Swedish political agenda since the early 1970s. This paper analyses the background for this interest, presents some basic features of socio-economic and ethnic residential segregation, and discusses some fundamental contextual properties regarding the Swedish welfare state, its institutional set-up and changes in housing and other policies that have affected the conditions for segregation processes. Three more specific anti-segregation policies are also identified and analysed: housing and social mix policy (first initiated in the 1970s); the refugee dispersal policy (initiated in the 1980s); and the area-based urban policy (initiated in the 1990s). Of these three, the last two have a clear ethnic focus while mix policies primarily aim for socio-economic and demographic mix. The analysis shows that none of the policies have managed to affect levels of segregation more than marginally, the reasons being ineffective implementation (the mix policy), failures in the design (the refugee dispersal policy) or conflicting aims inherent in the policy (area-based interventions).

    Depoliticization, Repoliticization, and Environmental Concerns: Swedish mining Politics as an Instance of Environmental Politicization2018In: ACME: An International E-Journal for Critical Geographies, ISSN 1492-9732, E-ISSN 1492-9732, Vol. 17, no 2, p. 561-596Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    An argument within the wider theory of postpolitics that has gained traction over the last decade is that environmental concerns in general, and climate policy in particular, are especially conducive to depoliticization. In this paper, we take issue with this notion by presenting an empirical case study of the repoliticization of Swedish mining and then, on the basis of this analysis, offer theoretical reflections on how to better understand depoliticization and repoliticization of the environment. We argue for the use of a narrow definition of 'depoliticization', and that sufficient attention must be paid to temporal and scalar differentiation of continuous processes of de- and repoliticization, and that normative assumptions of what constitutes the genuinely political should be abandoned. We argue that environmental concerns harbour large potential for effective politicization, and that this politicization occurs as a response to depoliticization, through concurrent, cross-fertilizing and intertwined processes of repoliticization across scales both inside and outside of formal channels of government, whereby previously depoliticized state agencies may become crucial.

    Epilog2018In: Svensk gruvpolitik i omvandling: Aktörer, kontroverser, möjliga världar / [ed] Jonas Anshelm, Simon Haikola och Björn Wallsten, Gidlunds förlag, 2018, p. 233-239Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Den svenska gruvpolitiken under 2000-talet kan i stora drag sammanfattas som präglad av ett pånyttfött intresse från statligt håll för framförallt de exploateringsmässiga förutsättningarna för gruvindustrin, och en social mobilisering på lokal såväl som nationell nivå mot den förda politiken. Denna utveckling har ägt rum i kontexten av en internationell så kallad »boom and bust« – konjunkturuppgång-följt av nedgång – vilken på avgörande vis har bestämt förutsättningarna för det statliga intresset för gruvindustrin liksom för lokala intressegruppers förhoppningar och farhågor gällande gruvindustriell expansion. Sådana konjunkturcykler är en naturlig del av all form av gruvverksamhet. Det kan därför finnas anledning att från dagens utsiktspunkt, med ett visst retrospektivt avstånd till den turbulenta tiden kring Northland Resources konkurs och vid en tid då världsmarknadspriser såväl som produktionssiffror verkar ha börjat klättra uppåt igen, ställa oss frågan vilka lärdomar vi har möjlighet att dra av just denna boom och bust.

    Mellan hopp och förtvivlan: Om förväntningar på gruvetablering ovanför polcirkeln2018In: Svensk gruvpolitik i omvandling: Aktörer, kontroverser, möjliga världar / [ed] Jonas Anshelm, Siomon Haikola och Björn Wallsten, Gidlunds förlag, 2018, p. 151-173Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I detta kapitel försöker vi förklara hur förhoppningar, idéer och löften tillsammans skapade stora förväntningar på ett gruvprojekt i Pajala, ett demografiskt och ekonomiskt stagnerande samhälle ovanför polcirkeln, något som ledde till etableringen av en gruva som lades ned efter bara två års produktion. Syftet är att skapa en förståelse av hur de centrala aktörernas förväntningshorisonter formades av specifika intressen i förening med historiska föreställningar knutna till platsen. Särskilt intresse ägnas åt att analysera hur dessa förväntningar under en period förenades i en för de berörda aktörerna gemensam förväntningshorisont som drev projektet framåt. Vi visar också hur den gemensamma förväntningshorisonten upplöstes efter en likviditetskris i bolaget, vilket blottlade de avsevärda skillnaderna mellan de berörda aktörernas ståndpunkter, i samband med att de olika aktörerna återvände till sina utgångspositioner. Med andra ord undersöker kapitlet hur förväntningshorisonter formas kring storskalig, långsiktig och råvarubaserad industriproduktion i avfolkningsbygder, inom ramen för en ekonomi som i övrigt är inriktad på kortsiktig ekonomisk tillväxt, globala kapitalflöden och konsumtion.

    Statlig reglering av gruvverksamhet i en post-fordistisk ekonomi: Lokal utsatthet i hierarkins skugga2018In: Svensk gruvpolitik i omvandling: Aktörer, kontroverser, möjliga världar / [ed] Jonas Anshelm, Simon Haikola och Björn Wallsten, Gidlunds förlag, 2018, p. 175-200Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Under 1900-talet försåg Norrland den svenska staten med råvaror som lade grunden för Sveriges utveckling till välfärdssamhälle. Den svenska ekonomin har dock efterhand alltmer inriktats på att skapa ekonomiska värden på andra sätt än genom råvaruutvinning och varuproduktion. Sverige har med andra ord omvandlats till det som ofta benämns som en post-fordistisk ekonomi,460 vilket ger upphov till frågor om vilket socialt ansvar staten ska ta på sig för platser som fortfarande är beroende av tung industri och varuproduktion för att upprätthålla sin lokala ekonomi och sysselsättning. Samtidigt har emellertid betydelsen av svensk gruvindustri understrukits i EUs råvaruinitiativ från 2008. Där bedöms självförsörjningen av råvaror inom EU som avgörande för framtiden.461 Sverige står för omkring 91 % av Europas järnmalmsproduktion och är en inom EU ledande producent av en rad andra strategiskt viktiga metaller.462 Den svenska regeringen har också i linje med EUs råvaruinitiativ understrukit sina ambitioner att skapa incitament för en intensifierad gruvverksamhet i landet.463 Som ett svar på såväl EUs initiativ som den parlamentariska oppositionens krav på reformering av gruvpolitiken lanserade alliansregeringen 2013 en Mineralstrategi, som syftade till att stödja och stimulera gruvverksamheten i landet, huvudsakligen genom nyliberalt färgad avreglering och undanröjande av potentiella hinder för gruvetableringar.464 Relationen mellan den svenska staten och lokalsamhällen som är beroende av utvinning och produktion av mineraler präglas således av utvecklingstendenser som kan antas motverka varandra, vilket gör dessa lokalsamhällens roll i statens industripolitik som helhet mycket oviss.

    Ojnarekonflikten och miljöfrågans återpolitisering2018In: Svensk gruvpolitik i omvandling: Aktörer, kontroverser, möjliga världar / [ed] Jonas Anshelm, Simon Haikola och Björn Wallsten, Gidlunds förlag, 2018, p. 75-101Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Historiskt sett så kan relationen mellan det liberalt kapitalistiska systemet och miljön beskrivas som en dubbel rörelse mellan ett kontinuerligt ökande resursuttag och statens ökade befogenheter att administrera miljöförstörande verksamheter.148 En viktig faktor för ett förbättrat skydd av miljön har parallellt med den liberala kapitalismens framväxt varit allmänhetens miljömedvetenhet, som har satt press på staten att införa miljömässigt motiverade regleringar. Givet hur ett nyliberalt beslutsfattande ofta verkar avpolitiserande, dvs. det strävar efter samstämmighet mellan grupper och en ökad grad av formalisering av sakfrågorna, har det blivit allt svårare för civilsamhället att påverka politiken. Detta beror också på att miljölagstiftningen anpassas för att gynna det privata kapitalets intressen, samtidigt som besluten ofta förläggs till teknokratiska processer i vilka ansvaret för miljön blir diffust.149 Trots detta utmanas avpolitiseringen av kontinuerliga försök till återpolitisering. Kraven höjs på att ansvar utkrävs av de politiker vars beslut påverkar livsbetingelserna för lokalsamhällen och deras omgivningar, och på att andra intressen än dem som gynnas och skyddas av ett avpolitiserat beslutsfattande också beaktas och tillåts påverka den politiska dagordningen....

    Svensk gruvpolitik i omvandling: Aktörer, kontroverser, möjliga världar2018Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Under 2000-talet har svensk gruvpolitik tagit plats som en av de mest omdebatterade och omstridda inhemska miljöfrågorna. Den har engagerat människor över hela landet och över institutionella gränser, från lokala aktionsgrupper, genom nybildade protestnätverk till statliga myndigheter och riksdagen. Kanske inte trots utan just på grund av gruvindustrins långa historia i Sverige har den visat sig kunna alstra politiska energier gällande frågor som i allra högsta grad har relevans för dagens och morgondagens samhälle. Det är frågor som gäller vårt samhälles relation till naturen, statens relation till samhället, och minoritetsgruppers och enskildas rättigheter i relation till staten.

    Denna bok belyser genom fallstudier ett antal av de skärningspunkter där den statliga regleringen, den globala finans- och mineralmarknaden, samt lokala intressen, praktiker, förväntningar och farhågor har mötts och satt sin prägel på den svenska gruvpolitiken under 2000-talet. Tillsammans kan studierna läsas som ett vittnesmål om förnyade krav på statligt ansvarstagande för miljö, regional utveckling och ursprungsbefolkningsrättigheter i den långt drivna avregleringspolitikens tid.

    Abstract [sv]

    Vad kan hända i ett samhälle där det finns en blomstrande upplevelseindustri kopplad till ett kulturarv? Det är den fråga som författarna till Astrid Lindgrens världar i Vimmerby belyser ur en rad perspektiv. Vimmerby är fokus för deras fallstudie och de skildrar utvecklingen av lokalsamhället och den framväxande besöksnäringen kring Astrid Lindgren och hennes författarskap.Handlingskraften i Vimmerby har mestadels kommit från entreprenörer som ofta inte haft enbart snävt ekonomiska motiv utan också samhällsnyttiga ambitioner. Samtidigt är den ett uttryck för ett samhällsengagemang som har djupa rötter i staden.Kulturarvet i Vimmerby är en unik tillgång för bygden och ger kreativa möten mellan kommersiella och samhällsnyttiga intressen. I Astrid Lindgrens världar i Vimmerby diskuterar en flervetenskaplig forskargrupp bland annat kommunens agerande, lokaltidningens roll och inte minst innevånarnas erfarenheter. Gruppen hämtar lärdomar ur sina givande inblickar i Vimmerbys utveckling genom åren.

    En annan kommunal ekonomi: om andra sätt att värdera lokala resurser och aktiviteter : bilder från Ydre kommun2014Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Med denna bok vill vi vidga perspektiven och visa på möjligheter att se kommunal ekonomi i ett bredare perspektiv och söka en annan kommunal ekonomi. Vi vill visa att det i en landsbygdskommun och dess bygder finns och används mer resurser för att skapa välfärd och ett gott liv än det som i dag räknas och därmed syns i den kommunala ekonomin där man räknar kronor och ören. Genom att vända och utveckla perspektiven kring ekonomi vill vi peka på behovet av att se och synliggöra fler resurser som gör att resurshushållning utifrån lokala förutsättningar bidrar till en integrerad och hållbar utveckling för landsbygden.

    Kan arbete vara nyckeln till inkludering?: En kvalitativ studie om hur utrikes födda akademiker upplever deras arbetssituation.2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Utrikes födda akademiker accepterar yrken som de är överkvalificerade för. Detta innebär att utrikes födda akademikers kompetens och erfarenhet inte utnyttjas på den svenska arbetsmarknaden. Syftet med denna studie är att studera hur utrikes födda akademiker upplever deras arbetssituation. Fokusfrågorna är varför utrikes födda akademiker accepterar yrken de är överkvalificerade för, om språket och kulturen har påverkat akademikernas chanser till att integreras på arbetsmarknaden samt hur utrikes födda akademiker upplever den institutionella diskrimineringen. För att uppnå syftet har jag utfört en kvalitativ intervjuundersökning. Jag utförde sex intervjuer med personer som är födda och utbildade i Mellanöstern i länder så som Irak, Syrien, Palestina och Jordanien. Mina informanter immigrerade till Sverige mellan 1994-2009. Resultatet visar att det finns ett antal faktorer som bidrar till att utrikes födda akademiker inte lyckas integrerar på arbetsmarknaden. De faktorerna är till exempel brister i det svenska språket, få arbetsmarknadsrelaterade nätverk samt den institutionella diskrimineringen som utrikes födda akademiker stöter på ute på arbetsmarknaden.

    A tale of two shocks: What do we learn from the impacts of economic policy uncertainties on tourism?2018In: Tourism Management, ISSN 0261-5177, E-ISSN 1879-3193, Vol. 68, p. 470-475Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we investigate the impact of the economic policy uncertainties on the tourism demand, by using multiple and partial wavelet analysis. We find that global economic policy uncertainties (EPUs) impact on tourism demand in various levels for different countries. The effect is on peak and stay longer in certain periods; such as GFC or 9/11. More importantly, novel to the literature, the domestic EPUs significantly affect the tourist inflows, indicating that policy holders need to take into account EPU fluctuations in forecasting the short-term and medium term tourism demand.

    Socknen - den plats vi är: En studie om platsuppfattning i Ydre kommun2010Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The term socken – comparable to the English term parish – refers to a historical geographical entity found in rural areas of Scandinavia. This entity presents a multi-layered understanding of the local rural area and is in this essay conceptualized as a place. The concept of place is central to geographic work but it is also a contested term – discourses within the field of geography present different perspectives on place as a geographical concept and our understanding of it.

    The history of parishes goes centuries back. The parish has throughout this period of time become an essential part of the local rural geography, in the 20th century however, the parish – as an autonomous rural entity – has been abandoned for larger administrative areas resulting in changes in the local geography in rural spaces. The concept of the parish is however not easily made rid of: it is still viewed as a relevant part of the conceptualization of the local and the man-land relationship.

    The understanding of what makes out the local area and its significance is a relevant inquiry. This essay explores the parish as a geographical place considering the multi-layered aspects of the concept and the different understandings of place represented by diverse geographical discourses. A field study carried out in the rural municipality of Ydre in east Sweden explores the construction of the local area by understanding the parish as place.

    Brain circulation and flexible adjustment: Labour mobility as a cluster advantage2011In: Geografiska Annaler. Series B, Human Geography, ISSN 0435-3684, E-ISSN 1468-0467, Vol. 93, no 1, p. 21-39Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores the role of labour mobility as a potential cluster advantage. We review the theoretical arguments as for how and why labour mobility could enhance the dynamism and performance of clusters of similar and related firms. A combination of quantitative and qualitative data from two information and communication technology (ICT) clusters is used to answer two research questions: (1) What is the role of mobility enhancing (or restricting) institutions in clusters? and (2) In what ways does labour mobility contribute to knowledge transfer within clusters? The two ICT clusters studied in the article generally seem to have higher levels of mobility, compared to the labour market at large. Although it is regarded as beneficial in theory, most cluster firms try to restrict mobility of workers since they fear the risk and costs of losing staff. Labour mobility is also rarely viewed as a viable way to increase the knowledge bases or contact networks of firms. However, when firms need to recruit the clustered labour markets seem to benefit them by facilitating the use of informal recruitment processes. By way of conclusion it is suggested that cluster firms might be under-investing in mobility and that innovative institutional solutions could help realize clusters mobility potential.

    Do high levels of home-ownership create unemployment?: Introducing the missing link between housing tenure and unemployment2018In: Housing Studies, ISSN 0267-3037, E-ISSN 1466-1810, Vol. 33, no 4, p. 501-524Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A large number of studies have demonstrated that the proportion of home-owners in a region tend to be positively associated with the unemployment levels in that region. In this paper, we introduce a missing piece of explaining this commonly found pattern. By analysing individual-level population register data on Sweden, we jointly examine the effects of micro- and macro-level home-ownership on individuals’ unemployment. The findings indicate that even though home-owners have a lower probability of being unemployed, there is a penalty for both renters and home-owners on unemployment in regions with high home-ownership rates. Differences in mobility patterns cannot explain this pattern. However, when labour market size is considered, the higher probability of unemployment in high home-owning regions is drastically reduced. This suggests that high home-ownership regions tend to coincide with small labour markets, affecting the job matching process negatively.

    Who Moves to Whom? Gender Differences in the Distance Moved to a Shared Residence2019In: European Journal of Population, ISSN 0168-6577, E-ISSN 1572-9885, Vol. 35, no 3, p. 435-458Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Although the migration of couples and families is well examined, the migration that occurs at the start of co-residence has only been minimally studied. This study examines (1) whether women move more often and move over longer distances at the start of co-residence and (2) whether gender differences (if any) stem from compositional differences between women and men, such as gender differences in ties, or if they are the consequence of the within-couple distribution of bargaining power. The analyses are performed on Swedish population register data from 1991 to 2008, including longitudinal information on the residence of all couples who either married or had a child as cohabitants in 2008, backtracking them to the year of union formation. The results indicate that women are more prone to move for the sake of their male partner in the process of union formation than vice versa. If partners lived in close proximity prior to co-residence, the woman’s increased likelihood of moving and longer distance moved is nearly completely explained by power imbalances in the couple. Gender differences in ties only have minor importance in explaining gender differences in these types of migration patterns. If partners lived far apart prior to co-residence, gender differences are particularly pronounced. These differences remain after adjusting for the two partners’ relative resources. We contribute to the family migration literature by suggesting that women’s higher propensity to move and their longer distance moved are indications that even couples’ decisions at the start of co-residence are made in favour of the man’s career.

    Accessibility in public space as perceived by people with Alzheimer's disease.2011In: Dementia, ISSN 1471-3012, E-ISSN 1741-2684, Vol. 4, no 10, p. 587-602Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Most people with dementia remain living at home as long as possible after being diagnosed, and hence their lives also include activities in the public space. The aim of this study was to illuminate experiences of accessibility in public space in people with Alzheimer’s disease. A qualitative grounded theory approach with repeated in-depth interviews was used. The core category, accessibility as a constantly changing experience, was characterized by changes in the relationship between informants and public space. Changes in the relationship took place in activities and use of place and related to familiarity and comfort, individual motives and interests, and planning and protecting. Other changes occurred in places and problematic situations related to everyday technologies, crowded places with high tempo and noise, and change of landmarks. These changes reduced feelings of accessibility and increased difficulties in carrying out activities in public space. These findings may be helpful when providing support, and supporting community living.

    Who leaves rental housing?: Examining possible explanations for ethnic housing segmentation in Uppsala, Sweden2010In: Journal of Housing and the Built Environment, ISSN 1566-4910, E-ISSN 1573-7772, Vol. 25, no 3, p. 331-352Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Swedish cities are not only segregated but also segmented along ethnic lines, i.e. different ethnic groups are unevenly distributed across the different tenure segments in the housing market. Immigrants are generally overrepresented in rental housing and underrepresented in home ownership and tenant owner cooperative housing. In this paper, an attempt is made to evaluate the importance of socioeconomic resources in explaining this segmentation, using the Uppsala housing market as a case. By means of binary logistic regression an evaluation is made of the relative importance of socioeconomic resources and ethnic background, while controlling for demographic factors,  in explaining whether a person leaves rental housing for home ownership or cooperative housing or remains in the rental segment. The results show that the socioeconomic situation of the individual is indeed very important. A high income and a stable position in the labour market seem to be crucial in order to advance in the housing market. Demographic and socioeconomic factors cannot, however, fully account for the differences found between Swedes and immigrant groups such as Africans and Eastern Europeans. The results imply that ethnic discrimination cannot be ruled out as an explanation for the underrepresentation of immigrants in the cooperative and owner-occupied segments.

    Green Attraction: Transnational Municipal Climate Networks and Green City Branding2015In: Journal of Management and Sustainability, ISSN 1925-4733, Vol. 5, no 4, p. 1-16Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, we investigate the nexus of green city branding and municipal climate networks. In recent decades, a number of formal transnational municipal climate networks have emerged and their membership continues to increase. In parallel, city branding that is based on green policies, has gained importance. Based on quantitative and qualitative data, we assess how and to what extent German cities use their membership in transnational municipal climate networks to communicate green city brands. In contrast to our expectations, we encountered very few indications of green city branding efforts by German cities. Our analysis shows that in general, branding considerations only play a negligible role in the involvement of cities in transnational municipal climate networks or climate policies. Instead, it seems that German cities use their membership in climate networks, to genuinely improve local climate change strategies. We therefore suggest that research on green city branding should be more sensitive to the particular context of cities and efforts should be made to unveil theunderlying motives for the communication of green policies.

    Science Parks - University interaction: A literature2017Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Throughout the history of Science Parks, many studies have shown that Science Parks have ceased to be mere facilitators of physical spaces, to become important providers of services and resources to their tenants. Considering that skilled professionals are one of the most sought after resources by technology and knowledge intensive firms, Science Parks have dedicated numerous activities and means in order to become even more attractive to talents. In this context, universities situated in or next to Science Parks play a key role in developing and attracting talents to Science Parks and to its firms as well as to the region, functioning as a regional node of a large national and international network of universities. Science Parks and universities are vital parts of the entrepreneurial ecosystem of a region and have many complementarities. In this study, we review the literature regarding the relationship existing between Science Parks and universities and the ways in which they can collaborate. Talent, recruitment, and entrepreneurship issues are addressed as the building blocks of these interactions. Other stakeholders, inside and outside a Science Park, are also analysed in order to widen the perspective to the ecosystem of actors involved, allowing a better understanding of the role, the interests, the means and the implications of each one. The purpose of this study is to understand and qualify the university's role in attracting and developing talent that firms in Science Parks can recruit later on. We identify the types of interactions occurring between Science Parks and their nearby universities. We strive to find what kinds of skills are considered relevant by employers, and to describe the initiatives developed by universities and Science Parks – separately and together – aiming at drawing, developing and retaining talents. We also seek to identify who are the actors involved; private or public organisations, or people embodying specific functions in these organisations. In the end, we recognize and point out policy implications, concerning both universities and Science Parks.

    Future developments for Science Parks: Attracting and developing talent2017In: Industry and Higher Education, ISSN 2043-6858, Vol. 31, no 3, p. 156-167Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Over the years, science parks have developed and improved their processes to offer better support to their tenants and promote the growth of the region in which they are located. Since regional growth is closely associated with groups of talented people, science parks carry out various activities at the company or individual level to attract and recruit talent. In order to understand how such activities have been and are being performed at Mja¨rdevi Science Park in Sweden, the authors highlight and analyse four talent-related cases. Their aim is to identify how talent can be attracted or recruited and to consider the stakeholders, their relationships and their motivations. The results confirm the importance to a science park of being close to a student community and of being connected to an international network with a well-recognized brand.

    Science parks - recruitment and development of talents2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Science parks have from the very beginning been important and valuable tools for the development of knowledge intensive economies. Most science parks have also strongly attracted talents, ideas, capital, R&D and firms. During the past decades we have witnessed a number of other structures and organisations being established, i.e. innovation hubs, clusters and so forth. We have also seen a very clear trend that the science parks abandon the idea of being strict geographical locations and become more of a function in the city. One issue that quite recently has been recognised, connected to science park development, is the potential they have as attracters of talented individuals. The starting point is, which goes in line with Richard Florida and his thoughts about the “Creative class”, that regions´ ability to attract firms and human capital is a key in their economical development. Talent individuals will undertake entrepreneurial activities and building values for the environment in which they are operating. This paper will describe and analyse the role that science parks could have when it comes to recruiting and developing talents within the region they are operating. More precisely we are interested in the following research questions: 1) What strategies are science parks using to stimulate the attraction of talents in order to enhance innovation and entrepreneurship for their stakeholders? 2) How are these strategies implemented? 3) Why (if so) and in what way have the strategies been successful?

    Future Challenges for Science Parks: Attractiveness and Recruitment of Talents2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Science parks have from the very beginning been important and valuable tools for the development of knowledge intensive economies. Most science parks have also strongly attracted talents, ideas, capital, R&D and firms. During the past decades we have witnessed a number of other structures and organizations being established, i.e. innovation hubs, clusters and so forth. We have also seen a very clear trend that the science parks abandon the idea of being strict geographical locations and become more of a function in the city. One issue that quite recently has been recognized, connected to science park development, is the potential they have as attracters of talented individuals. The starting point is, which goes in line with Richard Florida and his thoughts about the “Creative class”, that regions´ ability to attract firms and human capital is a key in their economic development. Talent individuals will undertake entrepreneurial activities and building values for the environment in which they are operating.

    Smokeless homes: Challenges for Increasing Use of Improved Biomass Cookstoves in Kisumu, Kenya.2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In Kenya, 69 percent of populations depend on biomass fuels to meet their cooking needs. The incomplete combustion of biomass is performed in insufficiently ventilated settings thus exposing human health and environment to toxic pollution. To date, women and children in resource limited settings have been most vulnerable to severe respiratory infections. The promotion of the Improved Biomass Cookstoves has become a popular issue in policy, research and practice. Community Based Organizations have however faced serious challenges in increasing sustainable use of the cookstoves among users. This qualitative study investigates the role of Community Based Organizations in promoting the Improved Biomass Cookstoves through women’s empowerment initiatives. It applies focus group interviews, questionnaire and formal interviews. 11 interview forms were administered to 30 women, 2 key informants and 3 implementing Community Based Organization representatives in Dunga wetland community. A combination of previous research and this empirical study show that economic resources, small diameter stove designs as well as insufficient policy support hinder effective stove programmes. While there is general adoption, women lack sufficient income and ownership of land which is a significant resource to empowerment. Women informal financial networks are instrumental in driving behavioral change towards clean cooking in the community. Sufficient gender sensitive policy intervention and support can provide effective channels to ensure sustainable incomes of women, livelihoods and stove use.

    Översvämningar i Sverige: anpassning och förebyggande arbete2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I samband med den aktuella klimatdebatten har översvämningar i Sverige fått en allt större betydelse i samhället. Forskning visar på en global uppvärmning och medeltemperaturen förväntas höjas fram till 2100, vilket kan påverka Sveriges kuster då havets yta stiger, samt har stigit mer än vad det har gjort i snitt på flera tusen år.

    När Sverige drabbas av översvämningar beror detta i första hand på stor vattentillförsel på grund av kraftigt regn eller snösmältning till sjöar och vattendrag. Idag inträffar dessutom allt oftare extrema väderföreteelser, vilka också kan vara bidragande orsaker till översvämningar. Arvika respektive Kristianstad har båda erfarenheter av översvämningars risker. De är två av de städer som har drabbats värst av översvämningar i Sverige, i samband med ovanligt kraftig nederbörd. Här har respektive stads kommuner till skillnad från många andra, tagit översvämningsproblematiken på allvar och har efter respektive omfattande katastrof satt i gång ett förebyggande arbete för att i framtiden minska risken för översvämningsskador.

    Fysisk planering handlar om hur mark och vatten ska användas och blir idag allt viktigare för att förvalta och utveckla natur- och kulturlandskapet så att miljöproblem kan förebyggas. Vissa platser är inte lämpliga för bebyggelse och åtgärder kan därmed planeras som exempelvis nivåhöjning av mark och i och med detta minska risken för översvämning. Ett viktigt underlag för den fysiska planeringen är översvämningskartor, vilka är ett hjälpmedel för att nå mål om begränsade skador i samband med höga vattenflöden. Kartorna visar vilka områden utmed ett vattendrag som riskerar att översvämmas vid höga vattenflöden.

    Då jag läser till lärare har jag i min uppsats även lagt vikt vid en didaktisk del där jag behandlar frågan kring hållbar utveckling och hur detta begrepp kan lyftas in i skolundervisningen. Efter avslutade studier på gymnasiet är det viktigt att eleven har kunskap kring hållbar utveckling. Eleverna kan då ta ställning kring frågor som rör detta i samhället vilket gör att vi gemensamt kan skapa ett hållbart samhälle. Agenda 21 som är en omfattande handlingsplan för hållbar utveckling har från år 2000 även tillhandahållit en utveckling för utbildning om hållbar utveckling.

    Enligt undersökningar har det visat sig att många lärare känner att det är brist på tid såväl som kunskap för att kunna behandla frågan om hållbar utveckling. Jag har vänt mig till en skola för hållbar utveckling och därmed fått fakta kring hur denna skola arbetar i praktiken för att lyfta in hållbar utveckling i skolundervisningen.

    Social exclusion and multi-ethnic suburbs in Sweden2019In: The Routledge Companion to the Suburbs / [ed] Hanlon, B. and Vicino, T.J., New York: Routledge, 2019, p. 163-172Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this chapter, we problematize the current discourses of social exclusion and segregation in suburban Sweden by providing an overview on contemporary Swedish research, further illustrated by on-going research on social exclusion of youth in the suburban landscape. First, we outline the conceptual debate on social exclusion in suburban Sweden and, in relation to this outline, we outline a theoretical approach to social exclusion based on social rights and substantial citizenship. Second, we use these concepts to approach four dynamics of social exclusion and their effects in the urban peripheries in Sweden of today: spatial exclusion, poverty, education and political participation. Third, on basis of this overview of Swedish research, we elaborate on interventions aiming at social inclusion and social change emerging in recent Swedish social policy. Fourth, we discuss current discourses on suburban social exclusion, and provide alternative frames of interpretation of the dynamics and effects of urban polarisation.

    Thinking time geography: concepts, methods and applications2019 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Time-geography is a mode of thinking that helps in the understanding of change in society, the wider context and ecological consequences of human actions. This book presents its assumptions, concepts and methods, and example applications.

    The intellectual path of the Swedish geographer Torsten Hägerstrand is a key foundation for this book. His research contributions are shown in the context of the urbanization of Sweden, involvement in the emerging planning sector and empirical studies on Swedish emigration. Migration and innovation diffusion studies paved the way for prioritizing time and space dimensions and recognizing time and space as unity. From these insights time-geography grew. This book includes the ontological grounds and concepts as well as the specific notation system of time-geography – a visual language for interdisciplinary research and communication. Applications are divided into themes: urban and regional planning; transportation and communication; organization of production and work; everyday life, wellbeing and household division of labor; and ecological sustainability – time-geographic studies on resource use.

    This book looks at the outlook for this developing branch of research and the future application of time-geography to societal and academic contexts. Its interdisciplinary nature will be appealing to postgraduates and researchers who are interested in human geography, urban and regional planning and sociology.

    Time geography in the global context: an anthology2018Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Time-geography is a mode of thinking that helps us understand change processes in society, the wider context and the ecological consequences of human actions. This book brings together international time-geographic research from a range of disciplines.  

    Swedish geographer Torsten Hägerstrand is a key foundation for this book, and an introductory biography charts the influences that led to the formation of his theories. A central theme across time-geography research is recognizing time and space as unity. Contributions from the Netherlands, the USA, Japan, China, Norway and Sweden showcase the diverse palette of time-geography research. Chapters study societies adjusting to rapid urbanization, or investigate the need for structural changes in childcare organization. The book also delves into green transportation and the interplay between humans and nature in landscape transformation. Applicational chapters look at ICT effects on young people’s daily life and methods for engaging clients in treatment practice.

    This book situates the outlook for this developing branch of research and the application of time-geography to societal and academic contexts. Its interdisciplinary nature will appeal to postgraduates and researchers who are interested in human geography, urban and regional planning and sociology.

    Redaktörernas förord2009In: Tillvaroväven, Stockholm: Forskningsrådet Formas, 2009, 1, p. 7-15Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Boken Tillvaroväven är Torsten Hägerstrands intellektuella testamente, en sammanfattning av en lång och nydanande forskargärning. Här ges grunden för det tidsgeografiska synsättet, vars ärende är fundamentalt: att förstå det sammanhang som det mänskliga samhället och naturen bildar. Med hjälp av ett antal grundläggande begrepp uppmanar han läsaren att ifrågasätta invanda sätt att betrakta tillvaron och att med skärpt uppmärksamhet tänka flerdimensionellt kring ekologiska processer. I boken presenteras också det speciella notationssystem som Torsten Hägerstrand utvecklade för att kunna kommunicera tidrumsliga förändringar. Han hämtade ofta begrepp från vardagsspråket, men använde dem på ett sätt som går utöver det vanliga. Han skapade också nya begrepp med hjälp av väl kända ord, som till exempel bredvidvartannathet och påplatsvaro. Boken ger tillgång till flera verktyg som bidrar till djupare förståelse av sammanhang i ekologiska processer av olika art och på olika nivåer. Boken vänder sig till studenter och forskare inom teknik-, natur- och samhällsvetenskap som är nyfikna på nya perspektiv, och till samhällsplanerare, politiker och beslutsfattare som har att ta hänsyn till ekologiska processer i tidrummet i sin dagliga gärning.TORSTEN HÄGERSTRAND1916?2004, professor i kulturgeografi vid Lunds universitet och upphovsman till det tidsgeografiska synsättet. Han hämtade inspiration från såväl samhällsvetenskap,naturvetenskap som humaniora för att utveckla kunskap om det mänskliga samhällets komplexa relationer till naturen, speglade i ekologiska processer i landskapet. Han förespråkade tematiskt orienterad forskning eftersom han ansåg att disciplingränser motverkar kunskapsbildning om villkoren för hållbar utveckling.

    User involvement in Swedish residential building projects: a stakeholder perspective2015In: Journal of Housing and the Built Environment, ISSN 1566-4910, E-ISSN 1573-7772, Vol. 30, no 2, p. 313-329Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    One factor influencing quality in the building industry is the ability of users, such as residents, to identify and express their requirements for the product, i.e. the residential building. However, the handling of communication with users in building projects has been insufficiently specified and studied. Drawing on a study of user involvement in building project design, production, and management, this paper examines user involvement in Swedish residential projects. To map current perceptions and approaches, building industry actors met in four focus groups. Group participants were asked to reflect on the definition of users, communication handling, how information from users is used, and challenges and opportunities in user involvement. Our initial emphasis was front-end activities, but focus group results revealed that user involvement was a continuous process extending from project initiation to evaluating the finished project as a basis for future projects. Discussions indicated confusion about who constituted users in various situations but, regardless of level of experience, focus group participants agreed on the importance and potential of user involvement and on the need for specific methods to acquire useful input.

    Staden som vill något mer: en studie om Linköpings stadsbyggnadsideal2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka vilka stadsbyggnadsideal som har format Linköping under historiens gång samt att studera de ideal som präglar planering och utbyggnad av staden idag. Med hjälp av en litteraturgenomgång tas utgångspunkten i 1800-talets Europa och i de trender som däri-från format våra städer. Det empiriska material som ligger till grund för studierna av Linköpings stadsbyggnadsideal idag är i första hand hämtat från Linköpings kommuns egna hemsidor men det har också gjorts en kvalitativ intervju med ordförande i Linköpings stadsbyggnadsnämnd. För att få en bred bild av vilka ideal som förekommer har förutom Linköpings översiktliga planer också tre specifika projekt studerats. De tre projekten är Övre Vasastaden som är ett centrumnära ombygg-nadsprojekt, Djurgården som är en nybyggnation mer perifert och närmare naturen samt Linköpings-Bo2016 som är ett visionsfyllt projekt med slutpunkt i en bomässa 2016.

    Resultatet av litteraturgenomgången visar på att tre dominerande doktriner har präglat stadsbygg-nationen i Europa från 1800-talet till idag. Dessa tre är kvarterstaden, trädgårdsstaden och funk-tionalismen. Alla dessa har satt sina spår i Linköping under årens gång och spelar fortfarande en stor roll i hur utformningen av Linköping planeras. I undersökningen av de ideal som idag råder dyker dessa tre upp titt som tätt men med den nya aspekten hållbar utveckling som ledstjärna. Den kom-pakta staden som ofta förespråkas just för ett hållbart stadsbygge och har likheter med kvarter-staden är det stadsbyggnadsideal som tar störst plats i Linköpings olika översiktsplaner och områdes-program. Detta ideal som förespråkar en förtätning av staden återfinns i båda projekten Övre Vasa-staden och Djurgården samt att det tar stor plats i översiktsplanen för staden. Utöver en förtätning av staden planerar Linköping för en utbyggnad av kollektivtrafiken för att kunna bygga bort bilberoendet och på så vis uppnå en mer hållbar stad.

    Biofuels - tools for achieving environmental goals or green place branding? Present drivers and future visions in two Swedish municipalities2018In: Journal of Environmental Planning and Management, ISSN 0964-0568, E-ISSN 1360-0559, Vol. 61, no 7, p. 1162-1179Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a study of two Swedish municipalities engagement in biogas development. To analyse the drivers of such biogas development, the conceptual framing incorporates two perspectives on local biogas policy: first, policy drivers as connected to environmental goals and, second, policy as a matter of green place branding. The results indicate that biogas engagement serves as a self-governing activity with the fulfilment of environmental goals as a driver; furthermore, it is a way of expressing the mission of municipalities as engines of environmental policy. In one studied municipality, biogas engagement has an important symbolic value for green identity, meaning that green place branding is a driver. Still, interviewed actors from both municipalities lack clear long-term visions of biogas. Further studies of biofuel production should critically investigate visions of the future among central and local governments and evaluate the implications of municipalities as biofuel producers.

    National infrastructure, small towns and sustainable mobility – experiences from policy and strategy in two Swedish municipalities2017In: Journal of Environmental Planning and Management, ISSN 0964-0568, E-ISSN 1360-0559, Vol. 60, no 9, p. 1660-1682Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores the implications of improved access to national rail and roadinfrastructure for urban planning and land use in two small Swedish towns. The promotion of sustainable mobility is considered a strategic objective at the municipal level, yet the study questions the extent to which national investments, and increased access to regional labour markets, support local efforts to increase sustainable mobility. The results indicate that municipalities struggle to adopt coherent approaches to increasing sustainable mobility and continue to develop physical plans that induce use of motor vehicles, a trend reinforced by national investments in road infrastructure in peri-urban areas.
