    Inclusive education in Sweden? A critical analysis2011In: International Journal of Inclusive Education, ISSN 1360-3116, E-ISSN 1464-5173, Vol. 15, no 5, p. 541-555Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    When it comes to pupils in need of special support and pupils with disabilities, Sweden’s compulsory school system is sometimes considered a one‐track system. This article analyses and critically discusses current policy and practices at various levels of Sweden’s compulsory school system for these pupils. The analysis traces three themes at the national and municipal levels: (1) values and goals; (2) organisation and placement of pupils; and (3) importance of categories in obtaining support. A rather complex picture emerges from this analysis. Several conclusions are made: (1) state policies leave a lot of room for interpretation at the municipal and school levels, and this results in an extensive variation; (2) Swedish state policy is not as inclusive as is often stated; (3) celebration of difference seems to be hard to achieve; (4) learning goals can be a double‐edged sword with regard to inclusion; and (5) most pupils appear to enjoy participation in school, and in an international perspective, Swedish classrooms seem to be largely democratic.

    Abstract [sv]

    Ibland kan den allra enklaste och mest vardagliga sak vara ogenomförbar och ibland kan samma sak gå hur lätt som helst. Vad är det som styr våra handlingsmöjligheter? Hur kan man identifiera mönster och vanor i människors uppenbarligen mycket variationsrika och komplexa vardagsliv?I den här boken hanteras dessa frågor från ett tvärvetenskapligt perspektiv, där en beskrivning av familjen Johanssons vardag används som utgångspunkt för att reflektera över vardagliga situationer som människan ställs inför i sitt hushåll och i samhället. Problematiken betraktas utifrån den enskilda människans plats i tillvaron, där hon ständigt måste göra avvägningar för att passa ihop alla omgivningens möjligheter och krav med det egna hushållets behov och resurser

    Funktionshinder, samtal och självbestämmande: En studie av brukarcentrerade möten2007Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    From a citizenship and communicative perspective the aim of the dissertation is to examine and problematize the self-determination of disabled “users” during conversations taking place at “user-centred” team meetings. The meetings are organised by two habilitation centres, one for children and young people and one for adults. One disabled user and/or his/her relatives and professionals representing different institutions participate in the meetings. The study is based on discourse analysis of 18 observed and audiotaped team meetings held by ten different teams. The analyses show that the users exerted a more or less restricted influence on the organisation of the conversations. This varied with the organisation of the conversations and to the extent that the users participated actively by identifying their own problems and future goals. Hence, a certain conflict between an “ideal” type of self-determination and the users’ ability/willingness to live up to the demands that this kind of self-determination makes on them was revealed. This conflict gave rise to situations in which dilemmas between selfdetermination and paternalism appeared. By analysing how these situations were handled it was found that the participants in meetings without participating users accounted for their opinions and decisions concerning the treatment of the users by referring either to interpretations of the user’s preferences, which were based on the user’s behaviour in everyday life, or to their own beliefs of what would benefit the user. In meetings with participating users, the other participants handled the situations by steering the discussions in directions the user may not have chosen him-/herself. These discursive strategies were more or less paternalistic. In the dissertation it is discussed what other possible strategies exist that could increase the users’ self-determination. The result is also related to the “spoken” and social citizenship that the users are considered to exercise, as well as to other possible meanings of social citizenship.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim is to examine the discursive organization of “user-centred” team meetings in the Swedish rehabilitation sector. The “users” are aged between 4 and 30 and have been ascribed different kinds of impairments. The teams consist of one user and/or her/his relatives and different professionals. The analysis is primarily based on transcriptions of 18 audiotaped team meetings held by 10 different teams and focuses on two dimensions of dominance in interaction: the amount of talk and topic control. The findings point to professional dominance, but parents also have a great influence on the topic control. The degree of participation and the control of topics of the users who participate in the meetings vary, but most of the users become involved primarily by responding to the questions and suggestions of professionals and parents. In order to increase the users' control of the interactions the participants need to continuously discuss the organization of the conversations. The findings are related to complicating aspects of the conversations, including institutionalization, representation difficulties, varying communicative abilities, and expectations of expertise and adult liabilities.

    Abstract [en]

    Results from analyses of interactions in 'user-centred' meetings within the Swedish rehabilitation sector are reported. Transcripts of team meetings are used to discern situations in which dilemmas of self-determination versus paternalism may possibly need to be treated when the 'user' with impairment is to exercise his/her social citizenship. The analyses illustrate how the liberal ideal of self-determination makes certain demands on the 'user'. These demands are categorised as 'physical presence', 'interpretable voice', 'purposeful voice', 'sincere voice' and 'realisable voice'. It is argued that dilemmas of self-determination are impossible to avoid completely. To deal with the complexity of implementing self-determination, it is important to try to adjust the preparations and the organisation of the meetings, increase user control of services provided, combine individualised support with collective and political action, and allow expressions of different models of democracy. The possibility of appreciating interdependence and justifying paternalistic actions also needs to be acknowledged.

    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: To describe discursive strategies used by different professionals and parents to handle dilemmas of self-determination versus paternalism during six 'user-centred' team meetings in the Swedish rehabilitation sector. The dilemmas arise when the users' responses do not fully meet the demands of the liberal ideal of self-determination.

    Method: Three cases are used to illustrate three discursive strategies that have been found by means of discourse analysis of transcriptions of the audio-recorded meetings. Four teams consisting of one user each participate in the study. The users have been ascribed physical and/or cognitive disabilities and their ages vary between 14 and 30.

    Results: The dilemmas were never made explicit. Parents and professionals performed a kind of paternalistic steering termed 'challenging the user's response', 'substituting for the user', or 'dropping the user's response'.

    Conclusions: The least paternalistic steering includes making the dilemma explicit and offering the user the opportunity of sharing the responsibility for the handling of the situation. However, due to the complexity of the interactions no strategy can be found to either completely prevent the occurrence of dilemmatic situations, or definitely maintain the user's self-determination during dilemmatic situations. Paternalism may occasionally be a just way of enhancing future autonomy.

    Visualizing patterns of energy use in households - the activity approach2009In: eceee 2009 Summer Study: Act! Innovate! Deliver! Reducing energy demand sustainably, 2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this paper is to present an activity approach on energy use in households. The activity approach emanates from time-geography (Hägerstrand 1985, 1974) and forms the basis of VISUAL-TimePAcTS (Vrotsou, Ellegård & Cooper 2007, Ellegård & Cooper 2004), a software developed to visualize householders’ complex everyday life activity patterns, here applied with special reference to the equally complex patterns of energy use. The visualizations show activity patterns on individual, household as well as aggregate levels. We show how national time use surveys – by utilising VISUAL-TimePAcTS – can be used on aggregate levels to discern energy consuming activity patterns in individuals’ activity contexts. In doing so, the activity approach may contribute to a deeper understanding of the relation between the citizens’ everyday activities and energy consumption. Based on a qualitative household study (Karlsson & Widén 2008) in which time-diaries, logbooks, interviews and VISUAL-TimePAcTS were used and a typology of basic use patterns (individual and collective) of electric appliances were developed, the applicability of the activity approach for the promotion of more energy efficient habits among householders is explained. The activity approach brings energy consuming activities to the fore, but how the energy demand on aggregate, household, and individual levels can be accounted for by means of estimations of the amount of energy consumed by various technologies (Widén et al 2008) is also described. Limitations and need for further development of the method are discussed.

    Mapping and Characterizing: Nordic Everyday Life Research2010Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this report is to present references that originate from the Nordic countries,including Sweden, Finland, Denmark, and Norway, and that have been assigned the keyword“everyday life” or one of its Nordic counterparts and published in the period 1990 through2008. The presentation includes information on the total number of references from eachcountry, the most frequent authors and the institutions to which they belong, and the referencetypes and the number of each type. Based on an analysis of some limited information aboutthe dissertations and the journals, it is discussed how Nordic everyday life research may becharacterized.

    In total 560 references were found in the search procedure that is described in the report. Thenumber of references from the different countries is: Finland 176, Sweden 171, Denmark 110,and Norway 103. The analysis imply that the field of Nordic everyday life research is big,multifaceted, and multi- and interdisciplinary. It is performed mainly within the frame ofvarious social science subjects, but also to quite a great extent within subjects of healthscience, and to a minor extent within technology subjects. Some of the references seem torepresent studies with a more comprehensive view on the everyday lives of a certain group ofpeople located in the same place or sharing some characteristic and they try to capture bothwhat people do and what they think and experience. Other studies are narrower and focus on,for example, attitudes towards food or how computers are used or should be designed. Inother words Nordic everyday life research is hard to define clearly. The limited analysis andthe fact that the international field of everyday life research is not well known, do not allowconclusions to be drawn about either a typically Nordic character of everyday life research, ordifferences between the Nordic countries. However, the work of mapping Nordic everydaylife research will continue and the plans of constructing an open-access Everyday LifeResearch Database that will be easily accessible on the Internet are presented.

    Hushållens elanvändningsmönster identifierade i vardagens aktiviteter2008Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Det övergripande syftet med rapporten är att bidra med kunskaper som kan användas för identifiering av energieffektiviseringspotentialer i hushåll. Detta görs med utgångspunkt från hushållsmedlemmars beskrivningar av sin syn på den egna elanvändningen och energifrågor överlag, samt sina elkrävande aktiviteter i vardagen. Studien kompletterar Energimyndighetens elmätningsstudie i 400 hushåll och vänder sig till 14 av dessa hushåll. Med hjälp av ett tidsgeografiskt perspektiv presenteras en typologi över grundläggande elanvändningsmönster. En trend mot en individualiserad apparatanvändning med ökad elförbrukning som konsekvens identifieras och diskuteras.

    The influence of Swedish households' everyday activities and electricity-use patterns on the utilization of small-scale photovoltaic systems2009In: eceee 2009 Summe Study: Act! Innovate! Deliver! Reducing energy demand sustainably, 2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Although many European countries have developed extensive subsidy programmes for photovoltaics (PV) and other small-scale technologies for electricity generation, the interest in such programmes from Swedish legislators has been low. Subsidies for grid-connected PV systems for public buildings have been offered, but so far no initiatives have been directed to residential buildings. A recent inquiry suggests net metering for small-scale electricity producers, which would improve the economics somewhat, but the PV electricity would still be several times more expensive than the utility electricity. Nonetheless, private initiatives have begun to emerge in which companies offer small, yet expensive, systems for photovoltaics and wind power to residential customers.

    The purpose of this paper is to investigate differences in the load-matching capability of PV systems in a number of Swedish households. Seven measurement series of end-use-specific household electricity on 10-minute intervals are used, together with modelled PV generation with the same resolution. The households have participated in interviews that give insight into the routines and habits behind their electricity use. Differences in the daily distribution of loads are determined for various system sizes. The habits behind the electricity loads and the resulting differences in load matching are discussed based on the interviews. Considerable differences between the households are found both in terms of total daily load profiles and of end-use composition, and explanations for these findings are suggested by the interviews.
