    Labour migration and informalisation: east meets west2015In: International migration and ethnic relations: critical perspectives / [ed] Magnus Dahlstedt and Anders Neergaard, London: Routledge, 2015, 227-248 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose– Against a theoretical discussion of informalisation, the purpose of this paper is to trace wider commonalities and migratory interconnections that are leading to informalised or deteriorated employment conditions both East and West in the enlarged Europe. Design/methodology/approach– The paper examines the ways in which informalisation has come increasingly to typify employment relations both East and West via contrastive case studies from Sweden and Latvia. Findings– The paper illustrates how a growing tendency towards informalisation of work and economy comes about as a consequence of dual tendencies towards informalisation both “from above” and “from below”. Migrant labour has a part in this process, especially in the post-EU enlargement period, increasingly enabling free movement of labour from the former socialist countries to the West. Research limitations/implications– The implications of the paper are that the harmonisation of labour standards in the enlarged EU is not necessarily in an upward direction and that wider EU labour markets may be increasingly segmented as processes of informalisation grow in scope. Practical implications– Policy-makers concerned with preserving labour standards and norms of decent work may consider the implications of the interconnected processes of informalisation and migration, in particular, with regard to “undeclared work”. Social implications– The paper raises issues concerning the European social model and its viability. Originality/value– The paper bridges research on informalisation of the economy and labour migration in the context of EU enlargement.

    A Spectrum of Non-Belonging – Refugees, Human Rights and Political Pragmatism2014In: Treatises and Documents, Journal of Ethnic Studies, ISSN 0354-0286, Vol. 72, 5-24 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article represents the analysis of the life history of one of the refugees from Bosnia and Herzegovina who came to Sweden with Croatian passports and, as such, initially received a negative decision to her request for asylum, and then a temporary residence permission for a period of six months. The analysis covers three geographically and temporally separate phases of this refugee odyssey: life during the war and flight, then refugee life in Croatia, and finally refuge in Sweden. The main aims of this article are twofold. Firstly, it aims to show the way refugees themselves look at their refugee life and the role of the various macro-, mezzo- and micro-actors, who in every way influence their life. It also refers to the various strategies developed by refugees to cope with the situation in which all their expectations are crushed to pieces by the pragmatic political interests of the countries in which they seek asylum. Secondly, it tries to demonstrate all the possible strategies which the governments of Western Europe try to develop in “solving the refugee problems” in situations where the gulf between their humanitarian rhetoric and real pragmatic politics becomes uncomfortably deep.

    Arbetsvilkor2011In: Perspektiv på turism och resande: Begrepp för en kritisk turismanalys / [ed] Josefina Syssner, Lund: Studentlitteratur , 2011, 1, 303- p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Turism och resande har blivit ett givet inslag i vår samtid. I den rika delen av världen framstår möjligheten att resa för många som en självklarhet. I den fattiga delen av världen har turismindustrin blivit en allt viktigare inkomstkälla. Det turistiska fältet har dessutom kommit att erkännas som ett ytterst komplext forskningsfält som ger upphov till frågor som är både lokala och globala, och som kan handla om såväl människors drömmar och självförståelse, som mänskliga rättigheter, global ekonomi och internationella politiska relationer. Denna bok närmar sig det turistiska fältet genom en rad analytiska begrepp. Varje kapitel lyfter fram ett bestämt begrepp - däribland makt, plats, etnicitet och transnationalism - diskuterar vad det kan betyda, hur det kan tolkas, och vad just det begreppet kan bidra med för den som vill analysera samtida turism och resande. Bekantskapen med vissa teoretiska begrepp gör att man förmår se saker på det turistiska fältet som tidigare var höljda i dunkel. Samtidigt kan en ökad teoretisk och begreppsmässig kännedom göra att man plötsligt förstår hur komplicerad världen är. På så vis får kanske våra begreppsdiskussioner det turistiska fältet att framstå som ännu mer utmanande och fascinerande.

    Att leva både här och där: Återvandringsprocessen bland Bosnier i Sverige2002Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Den dominanta uppfattningen om orsakerna till f.d. Jugoslaviens sönderfall med alla dess följder (etnisk rensning, genocid, våldtäkter o.s.v.) har från första början tenderat att bli enväldigt förenklad uppfattning om en i själva verket högst invecklad samhällsverklighet. Allt tenderar att förklaras med hänvisning till ett "medfött" ömsesidigt hat som skulle ha funnits bland de olika etniska gruppema. "Den balkanska mentaliteten", " tribalismen", "den endemiska etniska konflikten", " hatet som har befunnits i flera sekel", "en kongenital animositet" o.s.v., efter att mer eller mindre framgångsrikt ha hållits under kontroll av den kommunistiska regeringen, ses nu efter dennas fall som något uppblossat med extrem kraft. Trots att denna isig primordiala diskurs under hela denna period har ifrågasatts av den samhälleliga verkligheten själv, med många exempel som ifrågasätter denna förenklade uppfattning, liksom av en mängd vetenskapliga, journalistiska och dylika texter, blev ändå denna diskurs ett dominantinslag i tolkningen av det balkanska kriget.

    Detta faktum skulle inte vara så viktigt om inte denna diskurs hade fått en avgörande betydelse för det internationella politiska, militära, ekonomiska och humanitära engagemangen i konfliktenslösning. En av följderna till det sistnämnda var att, uppmärksammat av bland annat Mary Kaldor 1999, det internationella engagemanget i försöken att lösa konfliktenpå Balkan var grundad på samma premisser som styrde det militär-politiska engagemanget av de nationalistiska aktörerna (krafterna) på Balkan som igångsatt och fört kriget. Deras tolkning av etnicitet, reducerat till någonting som definieras med blod, språk, tradition and territorium, d.v.s. någonting som man inte kan välja utan som är naturgivet och oundvikligt, accepterades implicit av de internationella aktörerna. Ett bevis på detta är bland annat det faktum att alla förhandlingar under kriget fördes, samt själva Daytonavtalet skrevs på, med exakt samma personer som börjat och sedan fört kriget, och styrdes av samma kriterier som var orsak till att kriget hade börjat.

    Detta faktum har här en dubbel betydelse. Å ena sidan förklarar det svårighetema i genomförandetav Daytonavtalet i dagens Bosnien-Hercegovina. För oss är den intressanta frågan isammanhanget varför det är så svårt med återvändandet av flyktingar. För att få svar på denna fråga måste man titta på hur civilbefolkningen behandlades i kriget. Mary Kaldor konstaterardels att "Militärt antog man att det huvudsakliga våldet utspelade sig mellan de så kallade stridande parterna och att de civila så att säga hamnade i korselden. Trots att det fanns klara belägg för etnisk rensning behandlades denna som en bieffekt av striderna, inte som målet med kriget" och dels samtidigt att det riktiga krigets mål var av andra slag. "Dom förde, såväl politisk som militärt, inte krig mot varandra utan - för att upprepa Bougarels tes- mot civilbefolkningen och mot det civila samhället ". 'De stridande parterna'ställde i praktiken upp att träffa avtal med varandra först då de mer eller mindre hade uppfylltsina mål. Härmed får vi lite mer ljus på våra återvandringsfrågor. Det är klart att varje frivillig återvandring av flyktingar till tidigare hemorter och hem direkt skulle ha ifrågasatt och hotat det viktigaste resultatet som'de stridande parterna' hade uppnått med kriget. Därför har de tillvarje pris varit intresserade av att förhindra eller åtminstone skjuta upp återvandringen.

    Å andra sidan synliggör det sätt på vilket den s k. internationella samfundet har förhållit sig gentemot kriget på Balkan även en annan sak för oss. Samtidigt som dessa länder, och jag avser i första hand västländerna, först blev förvånade och sedan uppbragda av den 'primitiva balkanska mentaliteten', byggde de själva i betydlig utsträckning sin politik på ovan beskrivna primordiala premisser. I denna rapport kommer jag att peka på en del motsättningar av dettaslag, som också återspeglar sig i den svenska återvandringspolitiken.

    Breaking out – Barriers against Effort, Biographical Work against Opportunity Structures2012In: Journal of Business Administration Research, ISSN 1927-9507, Vol. 1, no 2, 1-17 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents the life story of a single small-business owner of immigrant background who wants his companyto grow. His business strategies are analysed both as a part of his own biographical work, and as they wereinfluenced and framed by broader political, economic and social processes. It is shown how his own personalqualities in combination with opportunity structures in the local market provided favourable conditions for hisbreak-in. Breaking out, however, seems to be presented with different types of barriers, such as lack of access tocapital, discrimination, and the fact that new markets may consist of different sorts of network that are in its turnmore difficult for new actors to enter. But even if newcomers often find these barriers difficult for to overcome,individuals are not just passive objects but also have the opportunity to realize their lives according to their own lifeplans.

    Conflicts and inter-ethnic solidarity: Bosnian refugees in Malmö2011In: The Bosnian Diaspora: Integration in Transnational Communities / [ed] Marko Valenta och Sabrina P. Ramet, Ashgate , 2011Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Bosnian Diaspora: Integration in Transnational Communities provides an extensive exploration of a major post-conflict European Diaspora, presenting the latest trans-national comparative studies drawn from the US, Australia and countries across Europe, to explore post-crisis interactions among Bosnians and the impact of post-conflict related migration. Examining the common features of the Diaspora this volume addresses the influence of global anti-Muslim rhetoric on the Bosnian Diaspora's self-identification and refugees' relationships to their home country.

    Ekonomins informalisering och arbetets rekomodifiering2006In: Kors & tvärs: Intersektionalitet och makt i storstadens arbetsliv / [ed] A. Neergaard, A. Nilsson and E. Gunnarsson, Stockholm: Normal , 2006, 1, 42-62 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Man brukar tala om storstadens dynamik, men möts vi egentligen på torget längre? Hur växer den nya storstadens arbetsliv fram? Finns jobben i storstäderna? Hur kommer man in på arbetsmarknaden? Hur gör dagens unga för att få ett jobb? Varför finns dom andra nästan alltid utanför eller längst ned i arbetslivets pyramid? Om 90-talet såg en stark utveckling av queerteori så har under de senaste åren begreppet intersektionalitet fått stort genomslag i analyser av ojämlikhet. Det handlar om att se vad som händer i själva brytpunkten när klass, kön, etnicitet och sexualitet möts i situationer, strukturer och personer. Ali Osman skriver exempelvis om Integrerande praktiker som arena för normalisering och disciplinering av utlandsfödda och Anders Neergaard om rasifierad rekrytering i storstaden. Det vill säga: fungerar de språkkurser som utlandsfödda får gå i Sverige för att göra dem hemmastadda i nya hemlandet, eller blir de till ett instrument för utestängning? Hur är det egentligen med svenska arbetsgivare och arbetssökande med utlandsklingande namn? Varför verkar stora företag mer öppna för kvinnor på IT-avdelningar än de små nystartade IT-företagen? Arne Nilsson skriver om huruvida storstaden är en särskilt attraktiv homomiljö. Är det verkligen så att alla bögar flyttar till Fjollträsk? Är det omöjligt att leva som öppet homo på landsbygden?I Kors & tvärs skriver ledande storstads- och arbetslivsforskare om läget i vårt land idag. Det är spännande läsning.

    En intervjustudie av fyra utlandsfödda företagare i Sverige2007In: Invandrares företagande: En studie av utlandsfödda företagare i Sverige / [ed] Sverige. Verket för näringslivsutveckling, Stockholm: NUTEK , 2007, -96 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

     Syftet med studien är att komplettera och på ett mer konkret sätt belysa en del resultat från den statistiska kartläggningen av företagande bland utlandsfödda som Nutek genomförde på uppdrag av regeringen och som presenteras i efterföljande kapitel. Studien baseras på fyra intervjuer med utlandsfödda företagare. Den fokuserar på motiv till företagsstart, drivkrafter bakom företagande, upplevelse av och/eller syn på hinder för verksamhet och tillväxt, etnicitet som affärsresurs, det vill säga fördelar med att vara företagare med utländsk härkomst. I rapporten presenteras fyra korta historier om fyra olika småföretagare med utländsk bakgrund i Sverige, två kvinnor och två män. En av dem har sin verksamhet i Stockholm, en i Malmö och två i Norrköping. Efter historierna diskuteras några viktiga aspekter av deras erfarenheter i ett bredare samhällsekonomiskt perspektiv.

    Immigrant and Small Business Research in Sweden: An Overview2004Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the paper is to examine the current state of immigrant and small business research (ISBR) in Sweden. The ISBR field is relatively new and undeveloped in Sweden, so mostresearch in this field concerns issues that are crucial in establishing this as a field of study. Apart from a historical overview of immigrant entrepreneurship and definitions of the concept of ethnic or immigrant business, many of the texts concern the distribution of immigrant businesses in Sweden.The second important feature of ISBR in Sweden is that it has allowed itself, deliberately ornot, to be guided by the optimistic vision and expectations in relation to ISB that also inform the official political agenda. It has done this instead of trying to develop its own research agenda based on scientific priorities, and secondarily, on results of international ISBR. Another relevant characteristic of ISBR in Sweden is the fact that only a few scholars have been able to deal with these issues systematically, while the majority have simply written papers during ad hoc forays in to the field of study. The final important feature of ISBR in Sweden is the lack of communication between ISBR and mainstream small business research and other relevant research fields.

    Immigrant Small Business in Sweden: A Critical Review of the Development of A Research Field2013In: Journal of Business Administration Research, ISSN 1927-9507, Vol. 2, no 1, 29-42 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the current state of immigrant small business research (ISBR) in Sweden, discusses the main trends in the field and presents the key texts that represent these trends. It is noted that research in the 1990s was largely influenced by the current political agenda, while academic communication between Swedish and international ISBR on the one hand, and Swedish ISBR and Swedish ‘mainstream‘ small business research (SBR) on the other were conspicuous by their absence. Besides, only a few researchers in the field were able to conduct their research in asystematic manner or with stable and long-term funding of research teams. The situation has changed in the 2000s. This period was characterized by increased academic interest in immigrants’ small businesses. Researchers dealing with ISBR wanted to free themselves from the current political agenda as well as from the focus on domestic priorities in terms of research questions and methodology. This has resulted in a large number of published policy-critical texts. At the same time the research interest shifted towards the previously neglected aspects of immigrants’ small businesses, such as immigrant women in business, young immigrants and immigrant entrepreneurship in the high-tech sector. These studies were based both on ambitious quantitative survey and on refined qualitative micro-studies. This critical review concludes with the discussion of a possible future research agenda for ISBR.

    Informalization of the Economy and the Recomodification of Labour2007In: Irregular Migration, Informal Labour and Community in Europe / [ed] Berggren, Erik, Maastricht: Shaker Publishing , 2007, 134-149 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

     There are two important aims with this paper. First one is to problematize the dominant view on informal economy as a sort of -separate economy-, related primarily to (immigrant) small business and distinct from so called formal economy that for the most part encompasses big companies as well as state economic activities. Contrary to this, starting point of the current paper is that all economical actors are increasingly ready to take informal economic strategies in situation when they are not longer able to secure their economics survival only by using -formal- strategies. Second aim of the paper, which is in accordance with this methodological position, is to say something about the causes, as well as the actors of the current informalization trends that characterize western economies. The conclusion is that informalization of contemporary advanced economies, in most general terms is a result of structural conflict between new economic trends and old regulatory frameworks (Sassen 1997) or as Bob Jessop (1997, 2002) put it between the new capital accumulation regimes and the old regulatory regimes. The old regulatory frameworks, with their focus on decomodification, have become too tight for new forms of capital accumulation, with focus on flexible adaptation, which include increasing demand for re-comodification of labour. The conflict emerges and intensifies among other reasons, because of radically different internal operational logics, agendas and priorities that characterize these two social processes, as well as these two agents of social changes.

    Abstract [en]

     During the 1960s immigrants were normally called -foreigners- (utlänning) in the Swedish press, and were usually described in a way that would nowadays be considered not only as politically incorrect but also as flagrantly racist and xenophobic. This way of representing immigrants in the Swedish media changed radically at the beginning of 1970s. The word -foreigner- was replaced by -immigrant- in most newspaper articles, and the media started to represent immigrants in a manner that resembles current politically correct media discourse. This paper discusses, first, the reasons for this discursive shift, in the context of the evolution of the Swedish integration and integration policy that was initiated at the end of the 1960s, and, second, the related development of international migration and ethnic relations (IMER) research in Sweden. Finally, the paper presents some reflections on the current state of relations between Swedish integration policy and Swedish IMER research.

    Kamp på den avreglerade marknaden: Rekomodifiering och etnifiering av taxibranschen i Stockholm2008In: Den kalla och den varma staden. Migration och stadsförändring i Stockholm efter 1970 / [ed] Håkan Forsell, Stockholm: Stockholmia Förlag , 2008, 1, 57-81 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Den kalla och varma staden ställer huvudstadens utveckling under de senaste decennierna i centrum. Bokens artiklar behandlar ur ett brett samhällsvetenskapligt perspektiv hur staden har bidragit till att forma migrationens följdverkningar. Teman som tas upp är förhållandet mellan boende- och arbetsmarknadssegregation, förortskritikens konjunkturer, hotet från den informella, svarta ekonomin, den nya medelklassens längtan efter en etno-chic livsmiljö och skolan som en scen på vilken det främmande spelas ut mot det svenska  eller omvänt.

    La informalización y la economía política de la reestructuración2009In: Migración y desarrollo, ISSN 1870-7599, Vol. 13, 5-26 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [es]

    Este artículo tiene dos propósitos principales. El primero consiste en problematizar la visión dominante de la economía informal como una especie de economía por separado, relacionada principalmente con las pequeñas empresas (de inmigrante) y distinta de la llamada economía formal, misma que en su mayor parte engloba a las grandes compañías así como las actividades económicas del Estado. En contraste, este artículo asume que todos los actores económicos están cada vez más preparados para adoptar estretagias económicas informales para asegurar su sobrevivencia económica. En congruencia con esta suposición, el segundo propósito de este artículo es contribuir al conocimiento de las causas, así como de los actores participantes, en las actuales tendencias hacia la informalización que caracterizan las economías occidentales. El artículo concluye que la informalización de las economías avanzadas contemporáneas, en términos generales, es consecuencia de un conflicto estructural entre las nuevas tendencias económicas y los viejos marcos regulatorios. Estos marcos, con su énfasis en la des-mercantilización, se han tornado demasiado restrictivos para las nuevas formas de acumulación de capital, con su concentración en la adaptación flexible, la que incluye una creciente demanda a favor de la re-mercantilización de la fuerza de trabajo. El conflicto surge y se intensifica, entre otras razones, por las lógicas operativas internas, las agendas y prioridades radicalmente diferentes que caracterizan a estos dos procesos sociales.

    Mellan explicit liberalism och implicit nationalism. Mojligheten att gå bortom den metodologiska nationalismen2006In: Bortom etnicitet: festskrift till Aleksandra Ålund / [ed] Diana Mulinari & Nora Räthzel, Umeå: Boréa , 2006, 1, -220 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Vilka sociala processer fångas av begreppet etnicitet? Och vad är kopplingen mellan etnicitet och andra begrepp som rasifiering, rasism och institutionell diskriminering? Hur ska vi förstå sambanden mellan migration, etnisk identitet och exkludering?Dessa och liknande frågor ställs i boken "Bortom etnicitet", som tar sin utgångspunkt i Aleksandra Ålunds forskning om etniska relationer i Sverige. Texterna erbjuder teoretiskt inspirerade analyser grundade i ett rikt empiriskt material. Tonvikten ligger på en analys av svenska förhållanden och de svenska institutionernas roll i att skapa och reproducera exkludering. Genom bidrag från internationella författare med material från andra europeiska länder, placeras svenska förhållanden in i ett bredare sammanhang och i ett jämförande perspektiv. Här finns studier av utbildningssektorn, bostads- och arbetsmarknaden samt de varierande former människor använder för att ifrågasätta rasistiska föreställningar och skapar nya kulturella arenor. Boken återspeglar därmed den samlade vetenskapliga kunskapen om etnicitet som analytiskt begrepp.

    POLITICAL ECONOMY OF INFORMALIZATION2010In: European Societies: The Official Journal of the European Sociological Association, ISSN 1461-6696, E-ISSN 1469-8307, ISSN 1461-6696, Vol. 12, no 1, 3-23 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article has two main aims. The first is to problematize the dominant view of the informal economy as a sort of separate economy, related primarily to (immigrant) small business and distinct from the so-called formal economy, which for the most part encompasses big companies as well as state economic activities. In contrast, the present article assumes that all economic actors are increasingly ready to adopt informal economic strategies to secure their economical survival. In line with this assumption, the second aim of the article is to contribute to our knowledge of the causes of, as well as the actors within, the current informalization trends that characterize Western economies. The article concludes that the informalization of contemporary advanced economies in general terms is a result of a structural conflict between new economic trends and old regulatory frameworks. These frameworks, with their focus on decommodification, have become too restrictive for new forms of capital accumulation, with their focus on flexible adaptation, which include an increasing demand for the re-commodification of labour. The conflict emerges and intensifies, among other reasons, because of the radically different internal operational logics, agendas and priorities that characterize these two social processes.

    Preservation and Sharing of Qualitative Data - Academic Debate and Policy Developments2011Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In most advanced economies the digital archiving of quantitative data is as old as digital technology itself but the idea of digital archiving of qualitative data is of quite recent date1. Two interrelated events are relevant in this context. The first is the establishment of the Qualidata Centre in the Department of Sociology at the University of Essex in the UK in 1994. The initial idea was to preserve data from pioneering examples of social research: in particular empirical data from the classical sociological studies of John Goldthorpe, Peter Townsend and Stan Cohen. The second related event happened in1996, when the UK’s largest provider of funds for social and economic research, the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) imposed new requirements on its grant-holders, namely to consider the issues of preservation and sharing of empirical data provided by their research projects. According to the agreement of 1996, between the ESRC, Qualidata Centre and the UK Data Archive (UKDA), Qualidata was appointed to provide a specialist archiving service for the UKDA, while at the same time the ESCR started to impose a requirement on all their award-holders to deposit copies of their qualitative data with Qualidata.

    In other countries the issue of preserving and re-using qualitative data began to attract serious attention in the mid-2000s. This interest was initiated by the OECD’s Declaration on Access to Research Data from Public Funding, 2004 and the OECD’s Principles and Guidelines for Access to Research Data from Public Funding, 2006. According to these documents, the most important advantages of ready access to research data are: improving the transparency of research processes; recognizing the fact that products of publically funded research are public property; avoiding unnecessary duplication of field work and the burden on research participants; and making data available for other researchers.

    Despite all these arguments the idea about archiving and open access to research data is viewed among some of the actors involved as problematic. While within quantitative research communities, data archiving and re-using are mainly perceived as trouble free, many qualitative researchers are skeptical. Most are generally reluctant to deposit their empirical data for sharing and re-use. This situation has led to an academic debate, primarily among British qualitative researchers so far, which is not surprising bearing in mind that the archiving policy was introduced in the UK approximately a decade earlier than elsewhere.

    In the first part of this paper I will present and comment on the epistemological/methodological, ethical/legal, ideological/political, and practical/technical aspects of the ongoing British debate about data archiving and re-use. In the second part of the paper, the Swedish case will be briefly described and considered in light of the academic concerns that have been raised by the British debate.

    Struggle for Survival in the Deregulated Market: Re-commodification and Informalisation of the TaxiSector in Stockholm2011In: Forum for Social Economics, ISSN 1874-6381, Vol. 40, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

     This paper investigates the process of the informalization of the Swedish taxi industry, focusing on how this process has been manifested in Stockholm’s taxi market. This process has been analysed partly in its particular, local and sector-specific context, as it has been affected by the deregulation of the taxi sector, and partly in its relationship to the broader context of economic and political changes to which all contemporary capitalistic (welfare) states are exposed. This study raises questions about actual common sense discourses on the issue of irregularities in the taxi industry, and offers an alternative perspective both on the ongoing process of informalization, and on the role of various economic actors in that process, including the state.

    The Ultimate Ends of Political Responsibility, or a Responsible Interpretation of Max Weber2004Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This article aims to problematise the interpretative tensions of the relationship between the ‘Ethic of Ultimate Ends’ and the ‘Ethic of Responsibility’in Weber’s 1918 lecture, ‘Politics as a Vocation’ (first published 1919). To this end, we will first examine background factors relating both to Weber’swork itself and the later Weberian tradition in the social sciences, which decisively influence contemporary views and interpretations of Weber. Inopening, I discuss internal and external points of controversy in Weber’swork, which is followed by sections treating the relationship between Weberthe scientist and Weber the politician, as well as the fact−value issue.Finally I compare Weber the liberal with Weber the nationalist. My conclusionis that a large portion of Weber’s oeuvre has not been included in a corresponding theoretical synthesis. Consequently, his work remains inmany ways unfinished and fragmentary and, more importantly, some of histheoretical statements are open to questionable interpretation. In the caseof the relationship between the ‘The Ethic of Ultimate Ends’ and ‘The Ethicof Responsibility,’ understanding of the relationship tends to be based onepistemological and axiological principles in conflict with the principlesupon which Weber’s general theoretical concepts are based. More specifically, and setting aside Weber’s fact−value distinction and his radical moral relativism, contemporary interpretations of the relationship between these two ethics tend to reinterpret Weber’s original proposition regarding ethical criteria that are legitimate within today’s liberal political theory and day-to-day liberal political rhetoric. This is in my opinion wrong, because itdoes not allow us, using Weber’s authentic concept, to learn more of theless visible aspects of our contemporary liberal political reality.

    Towards Qualitative Data Preservation and Re-Use: Policy Trends and Academic Controversies in UK and Sweden2013In: Forum qualitative Sozialforschung, ISSN 1438-5627, E-ISSN 1438-5627, Vol. 14, no 2 Art.10Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article considers current policy trends and academic controversies related to qualitative data preservation and re-use. In the first part of the article, the epistemological/methodological, ethical/legal, ideological/political, and practical/technical aspects of the ongoing British debate about data archiving and re-use are presented and commented. In the second part, the Swedish case is briefly described and considered in light of the academic concerns that have been raised by the British debate. The situation in Sweden may be summarized in three points: First, there are many signs that the infrastructure for qualitative data archiving and re-use is being developed without the active participation of sufficient epresentatives of the qualitative research community; second, there are many signs that developing the infrastructure takes as a point of departure neo-positivistic or foundational epistemology, treating qualitative data in the same way as quantitative data, with all the methodological problems resulting from this; and third there are very few, if any, signs that serious academic debate has started in relation to all the issues that have been raised by the corresponding debate in Britain.

    ‘Working in the ‘Bleak House’: an autoethnographic study of ethnic segmentation, precarization and informalization in the London hotel industry’2013In: Hospitality & Society, ISSN 2042-7913, E-ISSN 2042-7921, ISSN 2042-7913, Vol. 3, no 1, 7-24 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    During the past three decades, the traditional model of the welfare state in advanced economies has been replaced successively by the neo-liberal economic and political model. As a result, global labour markets today are extensively characterized by precariousness, instability, insecurity, vulnerability, risk and, of course, increased exploitation. However, these processes have not affected all segments of the population or all sectors of the economy equally severely. Some groups and individuals, and certain sectors, have been affected worse and earlier than others. This article attempts to demonstrate this through a case study of labour conditions in the London hotel industry in the mid-1980s. Using the author's personal experience as an empirical point of departure, the article demonstrates how the precarious nature of the work, ethnic segmentation and informal economic arrangements that dominated the London hotel industry at that time were early signs of what were going to become the key characteristics of most economic sectors not only in London and the United Kingdom, but - today - globally.

    From Workers’ Self-management in Socialism to Trade Unions Marginalisation in “Wild Capitalism”: A Case Study of ArcelorMittal in Bosnia and Herzegovina2013In: Revija za sociologiju, ISSN 0350-154X, Vol. 43, no 1, 31-55 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the largest steel producer in Bosnia and Herzegovina asit shifted from a state-owned company to a foreign-owned private company.The impact of the transition on industrial relations, effect of new managementon employment conditions within the company and the changing role of tradeunions is explored. The extent to which the findings can be considered a typicalconsequence of the inexorable encroachment of capitalism and privatisationacross Eastern Europe is considered. The paper commences with brief summaryof the historical and political context of the transitional economies. Thisis followed by a brief history of the steel industry in general, and in Yugoslaviaand Bosnia and Herzegovina in particular, detailing the main features of industrialrelations. The background to the specific case study is then presented,providing a short history of Mittal Steel and its restructuring challenges in thetransitional post-communist period. This provides the foundation for the analysis,which explores the impact of privatisation on industrial relations in thecompany, looking in particular at the effect of new management and its culture,and the concomitant effects on employment contracts, working conditions andthe changing role of trade unions. The paper concludes with a discussion of theextent to which the transformations can be explained by the various theories ofpost-communist capitalism.

    Socio-Economic Trends in the Swedish Taxi Sector -Deregulation, Recommodification, Ethnification2008In: International journal on multicultural societies, ISSN 1564-4901, Vol. 10, no 1, 76-94 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses the socio-economic consequences of the rapid deregulation of the Swedish taxi sector in the early 1990s. The deregulated taxi sector is illustrative of the ethnic labour market segmentation brought about by the evolution of the Swedish model from the universal welfare state, relying on -decommodifying- social policies, towards flexible solutions and related recommodifying labour market policies. We analyse the income, education and ethnic background of those workers for whom the taxi sector was the largest source of income during the period 1990-2004. An important result of our analysis is that since deregulation it has been more usual for foreign-born citizens to become involved in the taxi business, mainly because discriminatory entry barriers have been removed. But our findings also indicate that they have not been integrated in the sector under the same conditions as Swedish-born workers. Although better educated, they derive smaller incomes from the taxi sector than their Swedish-born colleagues. They also receive a higher proportion of social insurance allowances, higher unemployment benefits, and less income from education allowances than the Swedish-born. Altogether, foreign-born workers in the sector have smaller disposable incomes than their Swedish-born counterparts. Compared with the general foreign-born population, however, they have on average fewer social insurance allowances, more unemployment benefits, and less income from education allowances. It seems that an ethnically segmented labour market nevertheless makes it more profitable for the foreign born to work in the taxi sector than in other sectors or to remain unemployed. Finally, our findings show how sectors with deteriorating working conditions on the one hand appear to offer attractive employment opportunities for foreign-born citizens, while on the other hand they have another (un)intended consequence: foreign workers are the most severely affected by the changing relations between the labour market and social policy.

    Rekommodifiering av taxibranschen - förändring av ekonomiska förhållanden och etnisk sammansättning2008In: Dansk Sociologi, ISSN 0905-5908, Vol. 19, no 1, 75-95 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna artikel analyseras de socio-economiska konsekvenserna av den hastigt avreglerade taxibranschen. Det har blivit vanligare för utrikes födda att arbeta i taxibranschen, men de har inte blivit integrerade på samma villkor som de infödda kollegerna. Trots att de utrikes födda är högre utbildade, har de lägre inkomst från taxibranschen än de infödda. Resultaten visar hur en bransch med försämrade arbetsvillkor kan erbjuda relativt attraktiva arbetsmöjligheter för utrikes födda, samtidigt som det resulterar i en oavsiktlig bieffekt, nämligen att utrikes födda påverkas hårdast av de rekommodifierande processerna i relationerna mellan arbetsmarknad och socialpolitik.
