    Choosing conflict on the road to sustainable mobility: A risky strategy for breaking path dependency in urban policy making2013In: Transportation Research Part A: Policy and Practice, ISSN 0965-8564, E-ISSN 1879-2375, Vol. 49, p. 195-205Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous studies have identified implementation problems connected to sustainable mobility. These difficulties raise the question of which strategies can be successfully pursued to break path dependencies in urban policy making. This article is focused on corporate mobility management as one specific example of sustainable mobility initiatives, and analyses the formation and implementation of a travel policy for employees at the city administration of Orebro, Sweden. The analysis reveals how controversies can evolve into major implementation barriers for sustainable mobility initiatives. The analysis centres on the playing out of power relations between politicians and groups of officers in the development of interventions to break path dependencies. The strategy pursued in Orebro turned out to be very challenging within the municipality, since it required significant transformation of the officials personal travel behaviour, and so led to open conflicts within the city administration. The case demonstrates that radical and confrontational attempts to break path dependencies may result in the same watering down as less controversial, more consensual strategies. When handling controversial sustainable mobility measures there may be more benefit in deliberative strategies of raising awareness, creating new consciousness or institutionalising desired discursive shifts.

    Framtidens trafiksystem?: Maktutövningen i konflikterna om rummet och miljön i Dennispaketets vägfrågor2001Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The traffic- and environmental situation in Stockholm has for several decades been a constant source of controversy and debate. During the 1990's, the main focus of these discussions was directed at the Dennis-package (Dennispaketet). The Dennis-package was the result of political negotiations between the Social Democrats, The Liberal Party and theModerate Party in the Municipality and the County Council of Stockholm. The aim of the project was to improve the environmental situation in the region, to raise the accessibility, and to improve the conditions for development of the region. To fulfil these aims, the negotiating parties agreed on a number of infrastructure investments, for example the construction of a Ring Road around the city, an Outer By-pass Route in the outskirts of the densely built parts of the region, the introduction of road tolls to fmance these large new roads, and, furthermore, large investments in the system of public transportation.

    The Dennis-package gave rise to deep controversies that characterised the public debate and the politics in Stockholm for several years. This study is a documentation of the fascinating course of events in the project from April 1990 to February 1997, when the Swedish Government finally decided to stop the project. The focus of this study is directed on the multitude of spatial and environmental conflicts that evolved around the roads in the Dermis-package. The aim is to reach a deeper understanding of the complexity, the difficulties and the power aspects that can be stated as general for large spatially and environmentally restructuring projects of our time. The study shows that both discursive and spatial aspects of power exercise were important for the course of events in the Dermis package. Furthermore, clear tendencies are identified concerning how different environmental values and different places and areas in the Stockholm region are given higher priority than others, both in the design and the public debate as well as in the partialimplementation of the package. The study gives clear evidence that issues of environmental and spatial restructuring are never neutral, but issues of deeply political and social relevance.

    Lokalsamhället och vardagens transporter: berättelser från Vadstena, Åtvidaberg och Ljura i Norrköping2010Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Decennier av regionförstoring som strategi för regional utveckling har medfört ökade förväntningar på individen att dagligdags förflytta sig långa sträckor mellan jobb och bostad. Fortfarande är dock lokalsamhället, det vill säga staden, stads­delen eller orten man bor på ett mycket viktigt sammanhang för människor.

    I denna studie ställs en rad frågor om lokalsamhällets roll i regionförstoringens tider: Hur beskriver människor lokalsamhällets kvaliteter – varför har de valt att bo där de bor? Vilka transportstrategier har de utvecklat för att få vardagen att fungera? Hur tar de sig till arbete, studier, service, fritidsaktiviteter och nöjen? Hur ser de på dessa transporter? Hur resonerar de kring val av färdmedel? Vad anser de är viktigt för att utveckla lokalsamhällets kvaliteter och för ortens utveckling mer generellt?

    Studien bygger på intervjuer med invånare i tre olika orter i Östergötland: Vad­stena, Åtvidaberg samt stadsdelen Ljura i Norrköping. I studien tydliggörs indi­viders starka lokala förankring på sin hemort. Vidare framgår att både regionala och lokala transportsystem är centrala utvecklingsfrågor för respektive ort. Studien visar också på behovet av att komplettera dagens regionalt framtagna transport­planer och transportstrategier med lokalt förankrade planer och program.
