    Managing urban unrest: problematising juvenile delinquency in multi-ethnic Sweden2017In: Critical and radical social work An international journal, ISSN 2049-8608, E-ISSN 2049-8675, Vol. 5, no 2, p. 207-222Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The focus of this article is representations of unrest among youth in Swedish multi-ethnic areas. Using interviews with informants from the social services, police, schools and voluntary organisations involved in work on the social inclusion of youth in one multi-ethnic area in Sweden, we analyse discourses of the causes of urban unrest and the means to solve these. With an analytical framework on governing as problematising activities as the point of departure, the analysis indicates a strong focus on the suburb and migrant parents among the informants as a problem and as in need of normalisation to Swedish core values. Such conceptualisations of problems and solutions are quite symptomatic of ongoing changes of welfare policy, where the main responsibility for the welfare of citizens is put on the individuals themselves, rather than on the collective and the state.

    Fabricating the motivated client: problematising the market of social work in Sweden2019In: Critical and radical social work An international journal, ISSN 2049-8608, E-ISSN 2049-8675, Vol. 7, no 2, p. 189-202Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article targets the advancement of a market orientation in Swedish social work, with a specific focus on motivational work and the construction of the motivated client. Informed by a governmentality approach, the article analyses the formation of the ideal client in a market-oriented social work setting in Sweden. The empirical focus is front-line social workers and their work. The analysis is directed at the ways in which front-line social workers conceptualise the ideal client and how such a formation is made possible. The analysis contributes to problematising motivational work as something inherently good and progressive in neoliberal times, in social work practice as well as research. The main conclusions concerning the fabrication of motivated clients as part of a broader neoliberal agenda and challenges for social work are further reflected upon.
