    The Swedish Pirate Party and the 2009 European Parliament Election: Protest or Issue Voting?2011In: Politics, ISSN 0263-3957, E-ISSN 1467-9256, Vol. 31, no 3, p. 121-128Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the 2009 Swedish European Parliament election, the Pirate Party got 7.1 percent of the votes. We evaluate the sudden and unexpected success of the Pirate Party by testing two competing explanations: Did voters cast their votes for the party as a protest against the established parties, or can the result be explained by voters’ opinions regarding the party’s main political issues? Contrary to popular beliefs, empirical evidence indicate that the success of the Pirate Party cannot be explained with reference to protest voting. Rather, the most important reason why individuals voted for the Pirate Party was the importance they ascribed to the party’s main political issue.

    Who provides the conditions for human life?: Sanctuary movements in Sweden as both contesting and working with state agencies2016In: Politics, ISSN 0263-3957, E-ISSN 1467-9256, Vol. 37, no 3, p. 347-362Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyses sanctuary initiatives intended to change the situation of ‘irregularised residents’. Through fieldwork, three main activities are identified: assistance for welfare services, alternatives to inaccessible services, and inventing new ways of organising togetherness in the city. The role of activists in the initiatives links to discussions within Critical Human Rights literature, which emphasise the anti-institutionalist origins of rights. Yet, a complex interplay also plays out through co-current resistance against the state’s migration policing and collaboration with city-level state agencies. Understanding this complex process is important to improving knowledge of both the politics of sanctuary and human rights.

    Voter Turnout and Political Equality: Testing the ‘Law of Dispersion’ in a Swedish Natural Experiment2013In: Politics, ISSN 0263-3957, E-ISSN 1467-9256, Vol. 33, no 3, p. 172-184Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    According to the ‘law of dispersion’, the level of inequality in political participation is higher when voter turnout is low. We empirically test this hypothesis by evaluating levels of voter turnout in the 2010 Swedish election to the Västra Götaland county council and in the 2011 re-election for the same county council. The re-election voter turnout was reduced by almost half, from 80.6 per cent to 44.1 per cent. Our results support the law of dispersion: the level of inequality in participation substantially increased between young and old, rich and poor, low and high educated and politically interested and uninterested.

    Irregular migration struggles and active subjects of trans-border politics: New research strategies for interrogating the agency of the marginalised2017In: Politics, ISSN 0263-3957, E-ISSN 1467-9256, Vol. 37, no 3, p. 243-253Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The politics of migration has become increasingly prominent as a site of struggle. However, the active subjecthood of people on the move in precarious situations is often overlooked. Irregular migration struggles raise questions about how to understand the agency of people who are marginalised. What does it mean to engage people produced as ‘irregular’ as active subjects of trans-border politics? And what new research strategies can we employ to this end? The articles presented in this Special Issue of Politics each differently explore how actions by or on behalf of irregular/ised migrants involve processes of subjectivity formation that imply a form of agency. Collectively we explore how irregular migration struggles feature as a site marked by active subjects of trans-border politics. We propose a research agenda based on tracing those processes – both regulatory, activist, and everyday – that negotiate and contest how an individual is positioned as an ‘irregular migrant’. The ethos behind such research is to explore how the most marginalised individuals reclaim or reconfigure subjecthood in ambiguous terms.

    Practice makes voters?: Effects of student mock elections on turnout2019In: Politics, ISSN 0263-3957, E-ISSN 1467-9256, p. 1-7Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Student mock elections are conducted in schools around the world in an effort to increase political interest and efficacy among students. There is, however, a lack of research on whether mock elections in schools enhance voter turnout in real elections. In this article, we examine whether the propensity to vote in Swedish elections is higher among young people who have previously experienced a student mock election. The analysis is based on unique administrative population-wide data on turnout in the Swedish 2010 parliamentary election and the 2009 European Parliament election. Our results show that having experienced a mock election as a student does not increase the likelihood of voting in subsequent real elections. This result holds when we study both short- and long-term effects, and when we divide our sample into different parts depending on their socio-economic status and study each part separately.
