    Integration till arbete2007In: Etnicitet: Perspektiv på samhället / [ed] Hjerm, Mikael; Peterson, Abby, Lund: Gleerups Utbildning , 2007, p. 96-115Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Alla människor, oavsett etnisk bakgrund, har sammansatta identiteter. Beroende på situationen kan man känna sig som i första hand "kvinna" eller "kurd" eller "arbe tarklass". Vissa identiteter skapar hinder i människors liv och då handlar det om social ojämlikhet. Många väljer dock att tolka eller förklara sociala orättvisor utifrån etnicitet, kultur eller ras. Etnicitet blir därmed både en förklaring och ett vapen i en samhällsprocess, där klyftor ökar och där människor inte längre tillåts känna sig hemma.I ETNICITET - PERSPEKTIV PÅ SAMHÄLLET visas hur etnicitetsperspektiv bidrar till att göra samhällsforskningen mer aktuell och mer relevant, men också mer intressant. Områden som alltid har lockat samhällsforskare och sociologer - som utbildning, arbetsmarknad, politik, familjestrukturer och boende - får därigenom ytterligare dimensioner.

    Asymmetric Governance, Labour Standards, and Migrants’ Rights: A Transatlantic Perspective on Migration, ‘Decent Work’, and the Role of Civil Society in Fair Globalisation2012Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The emergence of a fundamentally reshaped global labour market regime during the last three decades has been marked by increasing informalisation of employment and followed by precarious working conditions, most seriously affecting irregular migrants. A range of social and political movements on transnational, regional and national level have generated strategies and discourses of contestation that emphasize the prominence of universal and collective rights. In connection with these initiatives the paper addresses the issue of accountability and contingencies for the implementation of labour, migrants’ and human rights and the ILO’s decent work agenda within the existing global governance architecture. It is argued that setting up a workable model for codification and institutionalisation of labour standards, human rights and migrants’ rights cannot be left to the currently asymmetric global governance regime. The essential role of global and regional trade union confederations and other civil society organizations (CSOs) in repositioning the issue of a rights-based approach to migration, labour standards and development onto the terrain of a fair globalisation is emphasized.

    Labour rights as human rights?: trajectories in the global governance of migration2015In: Migration, precarity, and global governance: challenges and opportunities for labour / [ed] Schierup, Carl-Ulrik; Munck, Ronaldo; Likić-Brborić, Branka; Neergaard, Anders, Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2015, 1, p. 223-244Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this chapter Branka Likić-Brborić addresses the emerging global governance of migration. She scrutinizes the structuring of human and labour rights discourses and contingencies for their institutionalisation and implementation by discussing their prospects for the promotion of global social justice. Issues of accountability and contingencies for the implementation of labour and human rights as migrants’ rights are discussed in the wider context of the existing global governance architecture. The chapter questions assumptions that setting up a workable model for codification and institutionalisation of labour standards, human rights and migrants’ rights could be left to a currently asymmetric global governance regime or to a variety of codes of corporate social responsibility. Global and regional trade union confederations and other civil society organizations have an essential role in repositioning a rights-based approach to migration, labour standards and development onto the terrain of a just globalisation.

    Migration, Work and Citizenship in the New Global Order2012Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Any consideration of global migration in relation to work and citizenship must necessarily be situated in the context of the Great Recession. A whole historical chapter - that of neoliberalism - has now closed and the future can only be deemed uncertain. Migrant workers were key players during this phase of the global system, supplying cheap and flexible labour inputs when required in the rich countries. Now, with the further sustainability of the neoliberal political and economic world order in question, what will be the role of migration in terms of work patterns and what modalities of political citizenship will develop? While informalization of the relations of production and the precarization of work were once assumed to be the exception, that is no longer the case. As for citizenship this book posits a parallel development of precarious citizenship for migrants, made increasingly vulnerable by the global economic crisis. But we are also in an era of profound social transformation, in the context of which social counter-movements emerge, which may halt the disembedding of the market from social control and its corrosive impact.This book was published as a special issue of Globalizations.

    Who Undermines the Welfare State? Austerity-Dogmatism and the U-Turn in Swedish Asylum Policy2018In: Social Inclusion, ISSN 2183-2803, E-ISSN 2183-2803, Vol. 6, no 1, p. 199-207Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Within the EU, the so-called “refugee crisis” has been predominantly dealt with as an ill-timed and untenable financial burden. Since the 2007-08 financial crisis, the overarching objective of policy initiatives by EU-governments has been to keep public expenditure firmly under control. Thus, Sweden’s decision to grant permanent residence to all Syrians seeking asylum in 2013 seemed to represent a paradigmatic exception, pointing to the possibility of combining a humanitarian approach in the “long summer of migration” with generous welfare provisions. At the end of 2015, however, Sweden reversed its asylum policy, reducing its intake of refugees to the EU-mandated minimum. The main political parties embraced the mainstream view that an open-door refugee policy is not only detrimental to the welfare state, but could possibly trigger a “system breakdown”. In this article, we challenge this widely accepted narrative by arguing that the sustainability of the Swedish welfare state has not been undermined by refugee migration but rather by the Swedish government’s unbending adherence to austerity politics. Austerity politics have weakened the Swedish welfare state’s socially integrative functions and prevented the implementation of a more ambitious growth agenda, harvesting a potentially dynamic interplay of expansionary economic policies and a humanitarian asylum policy.

    Is migration bad for welfare?: reconfigurations of welfare, labour and citizenship in Sweden2019In: Inequalitities and migration: challenges for the Swedish welfare state / [ed] Sven Trygged & Erica Righard, Lund: Studentlitteratur AB, 2019, p. 31-52Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    The aim of this chapter is to challenge an axiomatic assumption made in current public debates, namely that the sustainability of the welfare state in an age of globalization requires the imposition of limits on immigration. With a particular focus on Sweden and recent changes of Swedish welfare policy, the chapter shows how the current crisis of the Swedish welfare model has in fact haunted this model for decades. The argument presented is that the socially-integrative capacities of the Swedish model had been compromised well before the start of the post-2015 refugee crisis in Europe. The argument made is that it was not the scale of immigration that made the Swedish welfare state unsustainable. Rather, it is the austerity-driven retrenchment of the Swedish welfare state that, in the past quarter of a century, has steadily undermined the capacity of the welfare model to offer emancipatory and non-discriminatory pathways of incorporation to immigrants. With the neoliberal reforms implemented since the early 1990s, the current reality in Sweden is that of deepening, and increasingly ethnically tinged, class divisions and long-term social exclusion of sizeable population groups from substantial citizenship rights.

    Abstract [en]

    South African apartheid stands out in the academic literature as a generic case of the discriminatory political economy of migration in modern capitalism. In this chapter Carl-Ulrik Schierup brings into focus recent developments in post-apartheid South Africa, which is fractured by outbreaks of xenophobia and upset by police violence against striking workers. It is a historical moment presenting labour unions and other movements of civil society with imminent challenges. It signifies a current crisis of South Africa’s celebrated ‘community’ or ‘social movement’ unionism in the context of globalisation, corporate restructuring, a vast and exacerbated social inequality, the informalisation of labour, and a re-racialising regional migration system. It posits that a third way back to the future for trade unions, between politics of irregular migration and a new ‘global apartheid’ of ‘managed migration’, may be through retrieving their own past rootedness in workplaces and local communities, and in organising internal and cross border migrants.

    Abstract [sv]

      Idag har stora grupper svårt att komma in i eller tillbaka till arbetslivet när de en gång lämnat det. Långa sjukskrivningar, ofrivilligt deltidsarbete, senare inträde i arbetslivet och otrygga anställ-ningar skapar utanförskap. Ökade krav i arbetet gör att återinträde försvåras. Dagens ungdomar är dåligt förberedda för arbets-livet och samarbetet mellan skola och arbetsliv måste utvecklas. Det finns också skäl att undersöka om LAS och restriktionerna för tids-begränsade anställningar motverkar småföre-tagares vilja att expandera och anställa fler. Det sociala ansvaret för arbetslösheten måste vidgas. Företag och fack behöver samarbeta mer aktivt för att stimulera sysselsättning för dem som idag står utanför. En annan fråga som tas upp gäller arbetsincitament och rörlighet bland redan anställda. Den samlade effekten av socialförsäk-ringar och avtalsersättningar kan vara oförenlig med arbetslinjen. Det finns skäl att se över dessa system. Boken tar även upp trender i arbetslivet, befolk-ningsförändringar och villkor för unga, invandrare och funktionshindrade. Den behandlar anställ-ningsformer, könssegregering, rörlighet på arbets-marknaden och arbetsrättsliga utmaningar. Arbetslivsinstitutet och författarna inbjuder till en diskussion om hur Sverige ska kunna utveckla arbetslivet och välfärden.

    ”Diversity” and SocialExclusion in Third Way Sweden: The ”Swedish Model” in Transition, 1975–20052010Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The article sets out with a critical review of the concept of social exclusion as relates to citizenship. It then discusses the Swedish welfare state model, its development and crisis from the mid 1970s, its comprehensive transformation after 1990 and the contingent ”Third Way” shift in political and ideological perspectives on economic policy and labour-market policy. The next section discusses Swedish migration and integration policy during the same period (1975 – 2005), focusing on the major changes taking place parallel with, and linked to, the transformation of the Swedish model. The central role played by policy changes in the EU and adaptation to EU integration is highlighted. Thereafter follows a brief account of the consequences of these shifts on labour-market policy and on integration policy. A central concept here is racialized exclusion, developed below. The issue of “structural discrimination” is touched upon. This concept that has been used to analyze the consequences of discriminating institutional practices the effects of which are reinforced in interaction with the exclusionary dimensions of ethnicity, class, and gender. The possibilities and limitations of legislation and policy initiatives against ethnic discrimination are discussed in relation to an emerging political economy of exclusion. Here comparison with the US legislative experience against discrimination is pertinent. In summary, the possibility of alternative paths is explored in terms of social and labour-market policies in Sweden and Europe. In this context the overarching political vision of a “Third Way” is critically discussed in so far as it has the possibility to offer a strategy for social inclusion beyond the Swedish model.

    Memorándum para el «poder popular»: Migración, precariedad y nuevos movimientos sociales en el post-apartheid en Sudáfrica2015In: Migración y Desarollo, ISSN 1870-7599, Vol. 13, no 24, p. 3-46Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article discusses migration, precarity and poor people’s movements. It relates a reproduction of poverty and unfree labour in post-apartheid South Africa to shifting race-class alliances and the constitution of political hegemony under variable historical-structural conditions. It charts the development of migrancy system from apartheid’s centrally managed labour regime to a post-apartheid neoliberal regime driven by policies of «flexploitation». A contentious enigma of «xenophobia» is related to nation and citizenship in the remaking of hegemony in an exceedingly unequal society where poor people’s movements carve out spaces of an «insurgent citizenship» beyond the reach of neoliberal governance. The author asks whether a reconstituted South African left, with the anti-apartheid coalition’s Freedom Charter as a memorandum for current struggles, will be able to advance a renaissance of «people power» at a junction where migration, xenophobia and winning the loyalty of an unruly precariat have become increasingly crucial stratagems?

    Migration, medborgarskap och social exkludering: Ett europeiskt dilemma2007In: Migration och etnicitet: perspektiv på ett mångkulturellt Sverige / [ed] Mehrdad Darvishpour,Charles Westin, Lund: Studentlitteratur , 2007, 1, p. -415Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

       Denna bok ger en introduktion till den sociologiska forskningen om etnicitet och migrationsfrågor i Sverige. Etniska relationer analyseras här från ett maktperspektiv, vilket innebär att frågor om diskriminering, marginalisering och exkludering blir centrala. Vilka sociala processer är det som leder fram till etniska minoriteters utanförskap och segregation? En central fråga som boken söker belysa är hur föreställningar om etnicitet upprätthålls som kategorier som strukturerar samhället. Boken består av tre delar. Den första delen fokuserar på teoretiska resonemang kring etnisk identitet och etniska relationer i förhållande till social stratifiering, mångkulturalism och exkluderingsmekanismer i dagens Sverige. Bokens andra del belyser likheter och skillnader i etniska relationer för ursprungsbefolkning och invandrare i Sverige. I den tredje delen behandlas ett antal specifika sakområden såsom invandrarskap och politik, diskriminering på arbetsmarknaden, bostadssegregation, migration och kriminalitet, medias konstruktion av invandrare, kön och generationskonflikter bland etniska minoriteter samt åldrande bland invandrare i Sverige. Boken riktar sig till studenter och forskare inom sociologi, socialt arbete och IMER, men den lämpar sig också för andra samhällsvetenskapliga utbildningar som behandlar etnicitet och migrationsfrågor.

    Abstract [sv]

       Alla människor, oavsett etnisk bakgrund, har sammansatta identiteter. Beroende på situationen kan man känna sig som i första hand "kvinna" eller "kurd" eller "arbe tarklass". Vissa identiteter skapar hinder i människors liv och då handlar det om social ojämlikhet. Många väljer dock att tolka eller förklara sociala orättvisor utifrån etnicitet, kultur eller ras. Etnicitet blir därmed både en förklaring och ett vapen i en samhällsprocess, där klyftor ökar och där människor inte längre tillåts känna sig hemma.I ETNICITET - PERSPEKTIV PÅ SAMHÄLLET visas hur etnicitetsperspektiv bidrar till att göra samhällsforskningen mer aktuell och mer relevant, men också mer intressant. Områden som alltid har lockat samhällsforskare och sociologer - som utbildning, arbetsmarknad, politik, familjestrukturer och boende - får därigenom ytterligare dimensioner.Boken är en god introduktion till aktuell svensk etnicitetsforskning och riktar sig till högskole- och universitetsstuderande inom olika samhällsvetenskapliga ämnen.I boken medverkar Roger Andersson, Magnus Dahlstedt, Carl Dahlström, Mikael Hjerm, Diana Mulinari, Abby Peterson, Paulina de los Reyes, Nora Räthzel, Carl-Ulrik Schierup, Mirzet Tursunovic och Aleksandra Ålund.Mikael Hjerm är docent vid Sociologiska institutionen, Umeå universitet.Abby Peterson är professor i sociologi vid Göteborgs universitet.

    Political economies of exclusion: Transatlantic convergence or transatlantic split?2001In: Sociologisk forskning, ISSN 0038-0342, Vol. 38, no 3-4, p. 71-114Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper takes its point of departure in a discussion of US American theories on poverty, race and ethnic divisions of labour which have influenced current European research on poverty and social exclusion among immigrants and new ethnic minorities with immigrant background. The focus is in particular on theories of the Black US urban ghetto and its workless and welfare dependent poor and on seemingly divergent theories on the dualisation of the so-called "global city", new immigration and the new working poor. Their explanatory value is debated seen in relation to the development of the United States since the mid 1970s and the question of which demands to place on a more comprehensive and synthesising model with explanatory potential in the complex reality of the European Union. This is an emerging social formation which in a number of respects is markedly unlike that of the United States, even though the racialisation and ethnification of a new spectre of social exclusion also poses one of the most urgent social issues on this side of the Atlantic.

    På kulturens slagmark: Mindretal og størretal taler om Danmark1993Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [da]

    Mens Fæstning Europa atter armerer sine frontlinjer ? denne gang mod De Andre som "den muslimske fare" - koloniseres den offentlige debat i Danmark af forestillingen om indvandreres og flygtninges kultur som et "problem", i orientalismens tegn. Den opfattelse, at dansk og muslimsk kultur forholder sig til hinanden som "ild og vand", breder sig. Dette er kommet til at fungere som en slags selvopfyldende profeti, hævder Carl-Ulrik Schierup i bogen På kulturens slagmark - mindretal og størretal taler om Danmark.

    "Kulturen" er blevet til en slags slagmark, hvor forskellige modstandere i debatten har det til fælles, at de alle fokuserer på "kulturforskelle", mens social udstødning og etnisk forskelsbehandling håndteres som en bisag. Et problematisk samspil mellem statslig og kommunal indvandrerpolitik, forskningen og samfundets institutioner har resulteret i, at fikseringen på påståede "kulturforskelle" er kommet til at dække over virkelighedens sociale uligheder. Denne virkelighed præges af omfattende diskrimination, segregation og udelukkelse af de etniske mindretal på boligområdet, på arbejdsmarkedet og i uddannelsessystemet. Forfatteren peger på en farlig udviklingen mod såkaldt "kulturel forskellighedsracisme" og på behovet for et ændret politisk perspektiv. Vejen til dette kræver respekt for mindretallenes menneskelig rettigheder, social ligestilling og et øget tværetnisk samvirke. Bogen efterlyser en ægte dialog mellem "mindretal" og "Størretal" i pagt med danskhedens bedste traditioner.

    Scramble for the Balkans: Globalism, Nationalism and the Political Economy of Reconstruction1999Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Economic globalization has produced austere social jeopardy in extended parts of post communist Europe, with the former Yugoslavia and its successor states as the most conspicuous example. This state is exploited, sanctioned and nourished by authoritarian ethnocratic regimes, and misconceived Western policies may contribute to its persistence. Bringing new perspectives to bear on these crucial issues, this book is essential for all concerned with social reconstruction in the world's increasing number of complex emergencies.

    Abstract [en]

    The paper discusses precarity as a rallying point for resistance aswell as a social condition linked to elite transition in post-apartheid SouthAfrica. Focusing on systemic drivers of poverty, inequality and precariouslivelihoods, it discusses the transformation of South Africa’s labour forcemanagement and its migratory system from a centralised managementof unfree labour by the apartheid state bureaucracy to a post-apartheidstate of precarity driven by ‘flexploitation’. The nexus of precarious workand a fracturing citizenship is seen to represent a ‘duality of flexibility’linking practices of employment and labour control to areas like welfarebenefits, citizenship status, political participation and informal livelihoods.This is applicable to migrants and natives alike, but with migrants being particularly ‘flexible’. The author connects the issue of precarity withpolitics of xenophobia seen as a stratagem for the retaining of a postapartheidpolitical hegemony in confronting looming labour struggles andan insurgent citizenship of the poor.

    Social Exclusion, Diversity and the EU´s Anti-Discrimination Agenda2007In: European anti-discrimination and the politics of citizenship: Britain and France / [ed] Christophe Bertossi, Houndmills: Palgrave Macmillan , 2007, p. -246Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The EU anti-discrimination agenda, as set out by the Amsterdam Treaty of 1997, has become a major issue for understanding the future of citizenship in Europe. This timely collection, which features internationally renowned contributors, including Andrew Geddes, Etienne Balibar, Stephen Castles and John Rex, examines the impact of anti-discrimination policies in Britain and France. Arguing that national citizenship has entered a 'citizenship dilemma', based on the contradiction between the widespread existence of discrimination and citizenship as a central project of an equality-based society, this study explores key issues including the impetus behind the anti-discrimination agenda, the limits of achieving inclusion via national citizenship, how institutional and sociological contexts, primarily prisons and the military, encourage discrimination and the gender dimension of discrimination. Highlighting the inherent contradictions in the notion of citizenship, these essays move the debate beyond the oppositition between ethnicity and citizenship and demonstrate ways to achieve equality in multicultural and globalized societies.

    Abstract [sv]

    Agoras årsbok 2003.Den svenska välfärdsstaten har gått igenom stora förändringar de senaste decennierna. Vi står nu inför en ännu större förändring av dess villkor. Det handlar om EU och det gemensamma regelverk som växer fram även på det sociala området. Välfärdsstaten har hittills varit ett i högsta grad nationellt projekt. Idag utvecklas i snabb takt europeiska sociala rättigheter, som har företräde framför svensk lag. Välfärden blir allt mer gränslös. Hur kommer den svenska välfärden att se ut i det nya Europa? Välfärden finansieras fortfarande nationellt, men ser vi ett systemskifte i hur den organiseras och beslutas om? Kommer våra välfärdsprioriteringar inte längre att vara nationella, utan en del av EUs gemensamma politik? Får vi i framtiden rätt att söka välfärd var vi vill i Europa? Eller har vi redan den rätten? Är det politiska församlingar eller domstolar som kommer att avgöra vem som ska få välfärd? Utvecklingen mot en mer europeiskt baserad välfärd är tydlig, men politikerna ger samtidigt motstridiga signaler om dess innehåll. Detta märks inte minst i förslaget till ny konstititution för EU. I Den gränslösa välfärdsstaten ger en rad framstående svenska och internationella forskare sin syn på de snabba förändringar som i dag sker inom europeisk socialpolitik och konsekvenserna för den svenska välfärdsstaten.

    Sverige, ”mångfalden” och exkluderingens politiska ekonomi2007In: Makt, kultur och kontroll över invandrares livsvillkor: Multidimensionella perspektiv på strukturell diskriminering i Sverige / [ed] Tom R Burns, Nora MacHado, Zenia Hellgren, Göran Brodin, Uppsala: Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis , 2007, p. -543Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Med sitt breda spektrum av perspektiv på diskrimineringens strukturella dimensioner bidrar denna antologi till en ökad förståelse av problemets karaktär och ett mer nyanserat samtal om orsaker och möjliga åtgärder mot etnisk ojämlikhet. Ett strukturellt och maktorienterat perspektiv har väglett valet av artiklar om “invandrarproblematiken” och de samhälleliga maktförhållandena och demokratin i Sverige. Antologins artiklar identifierar särskilda mekanismer inom samhällets institutioner och kulturella formationer som diskriminerar, exkluderar och omyndigförklarar invandrare. Det Sverige som träder fram genom antologins analyser är ett samhälle som präglas av exkludering, men visar samtidigt många positiva krafter och utvecklingar i motstånd till rasism och diskriminering.

    CENTRU M FÖR MULTIETNISK FORSKNING har fungerat som en smältdegel för den här antologins idé och tidiga utveckling. Dessutom har Centrum för flera av antologins författare varit en såväl institutionell som social samlingspunkt och en plats för intellektuellt utbyte under perioden 2004–2006.

    Det är med glädje SOCIOLOGISKA INSTITUTIONEN genom publicerandet av denna volym – där många av författarna är, eller under lång tid varit, verksamma vid institutionen – bidrar till såväl samarbete mellan forskare som en mångsidig belysning av viktiga och vetenskapligt intressanta frågor kring migration, etnicitet, kultur och dominans.

    What ‘agency’ should we be multi about? The multicultural agenda reviewed2010In: Multiculturalism (Vol. 2): Critical Concepts in Sociology, Routledge , 2010, 1, p. 191-212Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Edited by two leading scholars in the field, this new title in Routledgea (TM)s Major Works series, Critical Concepts in Sociology, is a four-volume collection of canonical and cutting-edge research. Serious work on multiculturalism flourishes as never before, and this a ~mini librarya (TM) meets the need for an authoritative reference work to make sense of the subjecta (TM)s vast literature and the continuing explosion in research output.

    Perhaps more than other critical concepts, a ~multiculturalisma (TM) is hotly contested; there are sharply differenta "and perhaps ultimately irreconcilablea "approaches to a variety of multicultural conceptions and projects. Rather than seek to establish some kind of consensus on classic works, this collection explicitly brings together the best and most influential work to have emerged from all sides of the debate.

    The first volume in the collection (a ~Conceiving Multiculturalism: From Roots to Rightsa (TM)) assembles key research to trace the concept of multiculturalism from long-standing arguments on tribal co-existence, humans rights and civil rights to the rights to recognition. Volume II (a ~Multiculturalism and the Nation State: Who Recognizes Whom?a (TM)) collects the most important thinking to explore the tensions between national, ethnic, and religious identity politics. Volume III (a ~Multiculturalism in the Public Spherea (TM)), meanwhile, brings together the best research which examines the difficult choices to be made between ideas of social integration and contending notions of community rights, not least in schools and in the marketplace.

    The scholarship assembled in the final volume of the collection (a ~Crises and Transformationsa (TM)) juxtaposes work dealing with the most urgent crises in multiculturalisma "such as the revival of virulent nationalisma "with the best classic and contemporary thinking on the new realities of transnationalism.

    The collection is supplemented with a full index, and includes a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editor, which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context. Multiculturalism is destined to be valued by scholars, students, and researchers as a vital research resource.

    Abstract [en]

    The European Community took, in the late 1980s and early 1990s, a principled stand stressing the urgency to defend and further develop the welfare state and its historically established rights of citizenship on the supranational level. This was, among other, explicitly expressed in the programmes on poverty and social exclusion (European_Commission 1991, Room 1992). The analytical and normative-political framework for reform and renewal, which was here set up, was explicitly informed by the British sociologist T. H. Marshall’s now classical theory of citizenship, most well-known from the widely red and commented essay, Citizenship and Social Class from 1950 (Marshall, 1992 (1950)). Here Marshall laid out a threefold analytical and theoretical framework for depicting the development of rights of citizenship, implicating a complex interplay between, what he called, civil, political and social rights of citizenship. Alongside the work of John Maynard Keynes in political economy Marshall’s concept of citizenship belongs to the basic theoretical foundations of post-Second World War welfare state policies in Europe. While Keynes laid out the framework for those new strategies of state led intervention into western market economies that harvested great successes until the mid-1970s, Marshall’s conception of modern citizenship represent an integrated analytical and moral-political framework for the theoretical understanding of the relationship between market, welfare and democratic polities (Strobel 1996)....

    An Introduction to the Special Issue. Politics of Precarity: Migrant Conditions, Struggles and Experiences2016In: Critical Sociology, ISSN 0896-9205, E-ISSN 1569-1632, Vol. 42, no 7-8, p. 947-958Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The current special issue examines the range and strength of analysing contemporary transformations and struggles through the lens of ‘precarity’. Rather than defining a single precariat, the interest is in exploring ‘varieties of precarity’. These take different forms in different parts of the world, on different scales and in different socio-economic contexts, and yet they share certain characteristics in terms of conditions and capacity for agency. Contributions to this volume testify that precarity may be a political proposition as much as a sociological category that offers an analytical description of current transformations. The selection of articles has the ‘politics of precarity’ as a frame of reference. It describes the political economy of neoliberal globalization producing institutionally embedded precarization of labour, livelihoods and citizenship, but also resistance against the systemic structuration within which it is embedded.

    Abstract [en]

    The Oxford Handbook of the Welfare State is the authoritative and definitive guide to the contemporary welfare state. In a volume consisting of nearly fifty newly-written chapters, a broad range of the world's leading scholars offer a comprehensive account of everything one needs to know about the modern welfare state. The book is divided into eight sections. It opens with three chapters that evaluate the philosophical case for (and against) the welfare state. Surveys of the welfare state's history and of the approaches taken to its study are followed by four extended sections, running to some thirty-five chapters in all, which offer a comprehensive and in-depth survey of our current state of knowledge across the whole range of issues that the welfare state embraces. The first of these sections looks at inputs and actors (including the roles of parties, unions, and employers), the impact of gender and religion, patterns of migration and a changing public opinion, the role of international organisations and the impact of globalisation. The next two sections cover policy inputs (in areas such as pensions, health care, disability, care of the elderly, unemployment, and labour market activation) and their outcomes (in terms of inequality and poverty, macroeconomic performance, and retrenchment). The seventh section consists of seven chapters which survey welfare state experience around the globe (and not just within the OECD). Two final chapters consider questions about the global future of the welfare state.The individual chapters of the Handbook are written in an informed but accessible way by leading researchers in their respective fields giving the reader an excellent and truly up-to-date knowledge of the area under discussion. Taken together, they constitute a comprehensive compendium of all that is best in contemporary welfare state research and a unique guide to what is happening now in this most crucial and contested area of social and political development.

    Abstract [sv]

    Tillgång till utbildning är en förutsättning för jämlika levnadsvillkor och ett fullvärdigt medborgarskap. Men med en allt mer polari­serad och etniskt skiktad arbetsmarknad är utbildning inte längre en tillräcklig förutsättning för social mobilitet, trots att samhället är mer beroende av kunskap och utbildning än någonsin.I denna bok beskrivs relationen mellan utbildning och möjligheten att uppnå de levnadsvillkor som det sociala medborgarskapet föreskriver. Vilka strategier utvecklar barn till invandrare för att övervinna hinder i samhället och erfarenheter av exkludering och stigmatisering? Framför allt fokuseras övergången mellan skola och arbete: Hur präglas utbildningsval och syn på arbete och karriär av sociala bakgrundsfaktorer som klass, kön och etnisk tillhörighet? Vilken betydelse har boendemiljön och den lokala skolan för valet av skola? Hur inverkar föräldragrupper, föreningar och andra sociala rörelser på övergången mellan skola och arbetsmarknad?

    Postscript: The global compact for migration: what road from Marrakech?2019In: Migration, civil society and global governance / [ed] Carl-Ulrik Schierup, Branka Likić-Brborić, Raúl Delgado Wise, Gülay Toksöz, Abingdon and New York (NY): Routledge, 2019, p. 156-164Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Chapters in this volume have followed different fora and deliberations on the global governance of migration initiated by the UN High Level Dialogue on Migration and Development (UNHLD) in 2006 up till and including the summit of the Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD) in Berlin 2017. The focus of the book is on the impact of civil society groups and organizations on these processes concerned with the formulation of an overall normative framework for the governance of migration.

    This postscript addresses venues taking place after the Berlin GFMD. It revolves around the idea of ‘invited’ versus ‘invented’ spaces (Chapters 2, 6 and 7). Invited spaces stand for positions and platforms occupied by civil society organizations (CSOs) or non-governmental organizations (NGOs), embodied in a general neoliberal idea of ‘participatory governance’ in terms of state–market–civil society partnerships. Invented spaces are in contrast organizational and ideopolitical positions or counterhegemonic platforms occupied by contestative movements which through their collective action confront the status quo (Chapter 6). In the present text invited spaces refer to civil society groups in their position as participants within intergovernmental and international fora for deliberation on migration management. Invented spaces refer to independent civil society platforms for the development of strategies and action aimed at inclusive social, labour, citizenship and human rights of migrants.

    rom this perspective we relate in the following to the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM) agreed upon by governments on an intergovernmental conference 10–11 December 2018 in Marrakech and formally adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations on 19 December 2018.1 Our focus is on civil society’s perceptions of the GCM, and potentials for following up intentions of the compact through ‘invited spaces’ for dialogue with governments and international organizations on the road from Marrakech. We continue with a short presentation of professed ‘invented spaces’ for solidarity mobilization of social movements and their strategies for social inclusion: the People’s Global Action on Migration, Development and Human Rights (PGA), the Permanent Peoples Tribunal (PPT), La Via Campesina, Churches Witnessing With Migrants (CWWM) and the World Social Forum on Migration (WSFM).

    Migration, citizenship, and the European welfare state: a European dilemma2006Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This book examines the current dilemmas of liberal anti-racist policies in European societies, linking two discourses that are normally quite separate in social science: immigration and ethnic relations research on the one hand, and the political economy of the welfare state on the other. Gunnar Myrdal’s questions in An American Dilemma are rephrased with reference to Europe’s current dual crisis — that of the established welfare state facing a declining capacity to maintain equity, and that of the nation state unable to accommodate incremental ethnic diversity. The book compares developments across the European Union with the contemporary US experience of poverty, race, and class, highlighting the major moral-political dilemma emerging across the EU out of the discord between declared ideals of citizenship and actual exclusion from civil, political, and social rights. Drawing on case-study analysis of migration, the changing welfare state, and labour markets in the UK, Germany, Italy, and Sweden, the book charts the immense variety of Europe’s social and political landscape.
