    Är det privata politiskt?: Barnfri i ett barnvänligt samhälle2011In: Socialvetenskaplig tidskrift, ISSN 1104-1420, Vol. 18, no 2, p. 126-143Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

      Childfree in a “child-friendly” society     “Children are the future!” In Sweden there is a political ambition to make it possible for men and women to reconcile work with parenthood. As in many other countries, there is also a pronatalistic discourse where children are seen as an important contribution to the future nation. How do child-free women and men experience living in a “child-friendly” society? If children are perceived as a contribution to society, what do childfree people offer society? Do the childfree experience a dichotomy between childfree people and parents?     The article draws on interviews with 30 childfree women and six childfree men. It discusses three issues: the labour market, the Swedish redistributive tax system and how childfree argue about their contribution to society.     Childfree women and men accept that parents have problems reconciling work with parenthood, but sometimes get irritated that their time is less valued than parents’. They argue in favour of a “childfriendly” society, but are more hesitant about a “parent friendly” labour market. Likewise, the interviewed Swedish child-free men and women accept the tax system whereby they support children and their families.     The interviewees reject the idea that having biological children is the only way to be useful to society and give other examples such as voluntary work, helping out other children and paying taxes. Some of them have also noticed how the pronatalistic discourse, often on the Internet, is underpinned by racist arguments.     Compared to the USA, there are very few Swedish childfree communities on the Internet. The harsher arguments of the pros and cons of parenthood are instead written as comments on Internet articles. A more open discussion between parents and childfree women and men might open up for more political standpoints concerning childfreeness.

    Brukarinflytandets politiska innebörder: Konsensusorientering, individcentrering och avpolitisering i den nationella policydiskursen2018In: Socialvetenskaplig tidskrift, ISSN 1104-1420, Vol. 25, no 2, p. 91-113Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Sedan åtminstone 25 år tillbaka finns politiska förväntningar på att den offentliga välfärdsadministrationenska medge brukarinflytande i sina verksamheter.1 För att få enbild av vad lokala människobehandlande organisationer har att förhålla sig till i dettaarbete riktar artikeln sökarljuset mot nationell policy och undersöker hur fenomenetbrukarinflytande framställs i offentliga utredningar, rapporter och styrdokumentproducerade på nationell central nivå. Syftet är att granska den offentliga nationellapolicyn kring brukarinflytande, för att därigenom synliggöra den styrning de nationellapolicyaktörerna ägnar sig åt (jfr Bacchi, 2009). Arbetet är en diskursanalytiskdokumentstudie och den övergripande fråga som väglett undersökningen är: Hurkonstrueras fenomenet brukarinflytande i svensk nationell välfärdspolicy?

    Skam, maskulinitet och respons på mäns våld mot kvinnor2013In: Socialvetenskaplig tidskrift, ISSN 1104-1420, Vol. 20, no 2, p. 75-92Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing on qualitative interviews with 44 men in batterer interventions programs, the present article focuses on responses to men’s violence against women, particularly on violent men’s expected and experienced responses from their social networks. The participants see violence against women as morally reprehensible since men are not supposed to use violence against “weaker” individuals (e.g. women) and that couple relationships are supposed to be characterized by mutual respect. They argue that their social networks share this view of interpersonal violence. As a consequence of breaching cultural norms on violence and gender, the men experience their violence as shameful. Shame is connected to fears of being judged and rejected. The experience of shame causes the men to be careful of telling others about their violence and seeking emotional support from friends and family in order to end violence. Some men’s experiences confirm their expected critical response, but most men receive relatively uncritical actual response. These responses are related to different narrative strategies that the men employ when disclosing their violence. The men contextualize their violence by, for instance, emphasizing their personal crisis, addiction, or their partner’s provocations. They also redefine their violence, for instance, they rather talk about their “aggression issues” than in terms of assault. When disclosing their violence, the men may also condemn their own violence by emphasizing that they understand that they have acted morally wrong and that they take full responsibility for their violence. Finally, the men may present themselves as remorseful by dealing with their “issues” and being in therapy. Through condemning their own actions as shameful, the men are able align with normative notions of masculinity and make themselves intelligible.

    Den transparenta organisationen. Handläggaren och visibilitetskulturen i Försäkringskassan2017In: Socialvetenskaplig tidskrift, ISSN 1104-1420, Vol. 3-4, p. 239-260Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The expansion of ”audit culture” in public sector governance is well documented, including its implications for caseworkers whose performance is constantly monitored. Transparency is an inherent part of the audit culture, yet there are fewer studies researching how the ideal of the transparent organization plays out in everyday life in welfare bureaucracies. Drawing on ethno-graphic research in five local offices of the Swedish Social Insurance Agency, this article investigates how the transparency ideal is enacted on an everyday basis in this agency. The analysis reveals how the transparency ideal penetrates the organizational life in a much more pervasive way than is usually acknowledged in the audit society literature. Special attention is given to the relevance of a horizontal dimension of transparency. It is argued that the horizontal dimension of transparency is a central aspect in relation to goal achievement and the normative governance of the caseworkers. However, even if the transparency ideal is central to the internal organizational life of the Swedish Social Insurance Agency, transparency is much less salient in relation to clients and the outside world. The article explores this organizational regime of visibility, as established in every-day social interaction as well as in organizational routines.

    Att minnas migrationen: Intersektionella perspektiv på Nordiska museets insamlingar och urval av invandrares berättelser2016In: Socialvetenskaplig tidskrift, ISSN 1104-1420, Vol. 23, no 3-4, p. 321-352Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish self-image has been transformed in recent decades from the self-image of a homogeneous country with immigrants to a self-perception of a multicultural society. In this article we investigate how memory institutions contribute to constructing and dissolving the boundaries of the Swedish community by including or excluding immigrants in the constructions of a national self-perception. The ongoing collection “Remembering the Migration” at the Nordic Museum constitutes the empirical case study. The current collection and previous collections of different immigrant narratives at the museum are examples of documentation of subjective experiences and interpretations of the multicultural society in Sweden against a background of increased migration in the postwar period.

          Our analysis concludes that the collection, “Remembering the Migration” has an including perspective. There is an outspoken objective to incorporate the immigrants’ stories about migration in the common historiography and the national cultural heritage in multicultural Sweden. However, our study also shows that the questionnaire used in the collection lacks questions about experiences of discrimination or racism and thereby contributes to recreating a tacit narrative about Sweden as an inclusive and non-racist country or nation. This self-perception is also generated at the website of the Museum, where a selection of 17 collected narratives are published. In general none of these stories tell about experiences of racism or discrimination. On the contrary, most narrators in these narratives position themselves as well-included in Swedish society, mostly through their personal efforts of hard work and/or ambitious studies. However, our study indicates that this including, multicultural and non-racist self-perception is questioned and negotiated by some people who submitted their life stories and rather reveals that Sweden is characterized by, and has previously been characterized by, both inclusion and exclusion in relation to migrants. Furthermore our analysis of the published excerpts from the life stories reveals that exclusion could also be experienced from gender and class positions as well as in some cases also on the basis of ethnicity.

    Humanitära överväganden i asylprocessen: Balansövningar i spänningsfältet mellan solidaritet och ojämlikhet2016In: Socialvetenskaplig tidskrift, ISSN 1104-1420, Vol. 23, no 3-4, p. 194-218Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Humanitarian considerations in the Swedish asylum process. A study of the migration authorities’ balancing act between solidarity and inequalityMedical certi cates are becoming increasingly important as a basis for asylum assessments. Using examples from 24 asylum decisions concerning children and their families, the present article discusses how the Swedish Migration Agency and the Migration Courts in Sweden make use of medical certi cates. e common denominator for the decisions was that the children had been waiting for long periods in Sweden for their case to be assessed, and that they were not considered in need of political protection but instead the question was whether they should be granted a residence permit because of distressing circumstances. e study’s practical knowledge about humanitarian considerations is analysed through the notions of bio-legitimation and bio- inequalities (Fassin 2009), which provide for an understanding of how meaning and value are att- ributed to children’s lives and health conditions in the Swedish asylum process. Previous studies of the management of migration, focusing on bio-political dimensions, have discussed the form of the exercise of power, and scholars interested in governmentality have highlighted the state admi- nistration as the unit of analysis. is study aims to provide an additional qualitative perspective in the eld of humanitarianism in the welfare state. Furthermore, the article seeks to introduce the above concepts of bio-legitimation and bio-inequalities in a Swedish context. e analysis of asylum cases shows that humanitarian considerations were entirely focused on formalities and that the child’s actual well-being was subordinate when their humanitarian reasons were investi- gated by the migration authorities and courts. is brought with it both a de-politicization and the fact that no substantial assessment of individual children’s health conditions came about. e growing political interest in children’s health in the asylum process paradoxically means greater limitation in how to appear as persons before the law.

    Abstract [en]

    One of the most characteristic signs of Swedish social policy is that it to a large extent consists of welfare services. One of the most important set of services is to support children and youth with different problems and kinds of needs. These various services are available in both the social child care and in municipal outpatient. An activity that is in both of these institutional place is the Swedish summer camps. The task of the summercamps is complex because it is a leisure activity against all children in a commune while it is used as a measure of the social child care. The main objective of the summer camps and their activities is to give the children and youth the opportunity to take part in activities and to get experiences that they would not be able to get with their families during the summer vacations. The purpose of this article is to study the selection process used to determine which children and youth that will be offered the possibility to go to a camp in a municipal with limited capacity. The empirical material consists of observational studies and interviews collected in a field work. It was collected during two meetings in children and adolescents were selected for three weeks summer camps in the municipality. The result shows that the work which should be governed by an established priority list is a complex process where the concept of need is important criterion. How the concept should be understood and used is however not defined and the evaluation and selection is therefore to a large extent governed by moral opinion and previous experiences among the persons in the selection committee. There is also a pragmatic explanation: According to an unwritten rule should each summer camp group consist of one third of children and youth with social problems and needs, one third of children with previous summer camp experience, and the last third of children and youth without social problems and needs. The selection process is therefore characterized by an assessment which is to reconcile the individual needs and problems of the child against the group needs/ activities

    Abstract [en]

    Research on the implications of cross-cultural interaction for needs assessment practice is scarce. This is particularly the case when it comes to research on care management within elderly care. Research in Sweden suggests, however, that there is a need to explore the ways in which care managers regard and experience cross-cultural interaction when assessing older people’s needs prior to granting access to elderly care services. This article is based on a project that aim to explore just that through focus group interviews with care managers (n=60). The analysis revealed that the kind of cross-cultural interaction that the interviewed care managers find the most challenging is the one involving older people that migrated late, do not speak the Swedish language and come from cultures that are deemed to be too different. The analysis dicloses the underlying assumptions about Otherness that the care managers alluded to when sharing their views on and experiences of cross-cultural interaction within the context of needs assessment practice. The article discusses the implications that these findings have for care management practice in this country considering that the legislation dictates that care managers need to attend to older people’s ‘uniqueness’. The analysis reveals namely that the uniqueness associated with certain client categories is too unique to cater for.

    John Bowlby på besök i 1950-talets Sverige: - en udda fågel i svensk barnpsykiatri2017In: Socialvetenskaplig tidskrift, ISSN 1104-1420, no 1, p. 1--18Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The mismatch between John Bowlby and post-war Swedish child psychiatry: Account of a research visit

    In the first half of 1950, the British psychiatrist and psychoanalyst John Bowlby visited France, Sweden, the Netherlands, and the USA to gain information about the state of the art in the care of homeless children. The World Health Organization published Bowlby’s conclusions as

    Maternal Care and Mental Health (1952). The article aims to present an account and discussion of Bowlby’s weeklong visit to Sweden, based on previously unpublished notebooks and letters. The analysis shows a clear mismatch between Bowlby’s ideas and those of his Swedish hosts working in child psychiatry and social care. At first sight, Bowlby seemed to align with the Swedish psychoanalytically oriented child psychiatrists, while rejecting those Swedish experts who represented a biological approach with ideas about heredity, but it was more complicated than that. Bowlby also appreciated the methodological rigor and statistical methods of the latter current. What he did not appreciate, however, was that both Swedish currents, despite their mutual disagreements, shared a similar view of the importance of the environment for child development that was much broader than his own. For Bowlby’s hosts, environmental factors such as housing, schooling, parental care, number of siblings, social contacts, etc. were all important for the understanding of poor mental health and social maladjustment in childhood. As also becomes clear from the title of his book, Bowlby rejected such a broad approach and focused exclusively on mother-child bonding as determining children’s mental development and health. This mismatch between Bowlby and the Swedish experts explains why Bowlby paid only scarce attention to Swedish views in his WHO report, why this report and his later ideas about the importance of mother-child attachment initially met with little enthusiasm, and why he remained a "queer fish" in Sweden.

    Abstract [en]

    Does couplehood in later life protect against loneliness?

    The purpose of this article is to study the importance of intimate relationships as protection from loneliness in later life. We base the study on a survey of Swedes aged 60–90 (n=1,225) focusing on intimate relationships. The analysis considers neglected issues in ageing research on loneliness: the importance of union form, the importance of looking at relationship dissolution in terms of both widowhood and divorce, and the importance of new late-life unions (a gains perspective). We use two theoretical perspectives: the discrepancy model (realities vs. ideals), and the protection hypothesis, where the partner is generally the first and most important source of support in everyday life. The results show that a partner protects against loneliness and that union form matters: marriage provides the best protection, followed by cohabitation and living apart together (LAT). Feelings of loneliness decrease over time following a union dissolution – and, for men, more rapidly after separation than widowhood. The more one’s ideal union form differs from one’s actual union form, the more common are feelings of loneliness. Initiating a new relationship after a union dissolution protects against loneliness. The article discusses the importance of using union form instead of civil status as relationship indicators in studies of older people in late modern Sweden, and of including separation/divorce as indicators of union dissolution besides widowhood. It also stresses the importance of looking at later life not only from a loss perspective but also from a gains perspective.
