    En öppen affär: Konsumenten och den handelsarbetande i ett intersektionellt perspektiv2010In: Scandia, ISSN 0036-5483, Vol. 76, no 1, p. 129-156Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the article is to analyse what new insights into the twentieth-century debate on retail opening hours an intersectional perspective with a discourse analysis can offer us. In focus is the use of categorisations in the meeting between people, and the reduction of the complexity this entails. An analysis of intersectionality amounts to a problematisation of this practice and its consequences. The sociologist Leslie McCall points out that there has been surprisingly little discussion of how to go about an intersectional study of a phenomenon, and argues that different methods produce different kinds of knowledge.

    The source material used here consists of official publications in the form of official inquiry reports and parliamentary reports. By using anticategorical complexity, and the term social divisions in particular, predefined interpretations in the study of constructions of gender, class, and ethnicity are avoided, while taking a conflict perspective on the debate makes possible an analysis of the discursive struggle between free and regulated opening hours. With the help of intersectionality, two social positions are identified, consumers and retail workers, along with the social divisions that were used in their creation - indeed, it is by means of such creations that political change comes about. The long historical perspective reveals that many divisions can be important, and that the categorizations are continuously changing.

    It is at the point of intersection between the social divisions constituted by gender (woman), sexuality (housewife, married woman), parenthood (mother), family, and space (Stockholm, the household) that the position occupied by consumers who need liberal opening hours is created. Age too plays a role, given that consumers need to consume at a specific period in their lives (mothers who have both waged work and small children). The position occupied by retail worker is for its part defined by divisions such as gender (man, woman), family (woman unable to work far from home), sexuality (parent, housewife), and age (parent with young children or schoolchildren).

    The study shows that the same divisions are used over time, but they are used in different ways according to the discourse of which they are part or the position in question. It also shows that divisions and categorizations can act both inclusively and exclusively, depending on the period and whichever discourse happens to be in the ascendant. The retail workers were thus prioritized when the regulation discourse was hegemonic, whereas consumers were privileged once the discourse of liberal opening hours had taken over. Divisions and categorizations are always the objects of renegotiation, however; open deals indeed.

    Flexibility's New Clothes". A Historical Perspective on the Public Discussion in Sweden2007In: Flexibility's New Clothes". A Historical Perspective on the Public Discussion in Sweden / [ed] Bengt Furåker, Kristina Håkansson and Jan Ch. Karlsson, Basingstoke: Palgrave , 2007, 1, p. -256Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Flexibility is an ambiguous concept and its theoretical clarity is lacking. Large parts of the literature on the subject are prescriptive and ideological rather than empirical and analytical. This book contributes both theoretically and empirically to expound the importance of clearer concepts in the international and national debates on economic systems, labour markets, work organizations, and experiences of work. The authors place 'flexibility' in a new theoretical concept as juxtaposed to 'stability'. By relating these concepts to each other it is possible to open up a perspective in which flexibility as well as stability is wanted by someone. Moreover, flexibility may mean instability for another, while stability may imply inflexibility for another. Much terminological confusion and ambiguity are cleared up by this suggestion.

    From quotas of men to gender mainstreaming: Gender equality policies in academia from the 1960s to the 2000s2019In: Nordic Gender Equality Policy in a Europeanisation Perspective / [ed] Knut Dørum, Oxon: Routledge, 2019, 1Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The chapter aims to analyse how the problem of gender inequality in academia has been constructed in Nordic and EU policies, with a particular emphasis on Sweden. Inspired by Bacchi’s “What’s the Problem Represented to Be?” method the article investigates the presuppositions that underpin representations of the gender inequality in academia and how these representations of the problem have come about since the 1960s. The article shows how psychological and different ethical presuppositions form the basis for the problematisation of gender inequality and the policies and strategies aiming at achieving gender equality. It also shows that the representations exhibit differences and similarities between the Nordic countries and interdependence between the discussions in these countries, and that EU policies and regulations have had both a constraining and enabling role. The article ends with a discussion on what effects the different presuppositions might have had on the current situation for gender equality in academia.

    Justifying precarious employment?: The struggle over shop opening hours2011In: Precarious employment in perspective: Old and new challenges to working conditions in Sweden / [ed] Annette Thörnquist & Åsa-Karin Engstrand, Bryssel: Peter Lang Publishing Group, 2011, 1Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent scholarship, the notion of precarious employment has become increasingly important when exploring challenges to working conditions in various contexts. Both scholars and stakeholders have highlighted the multifaceted character of this phenomenon in different countries, regions and labour markets. This book explores the emergence of precariousness in Sweden, a country that has traditionally been held up as an example when it comes to the advantages of powerful pro-labour parties and employment security. The essays provide historical and international perspectives on the issue, as well as multi-disciplinary approaches to explaining the problem. By examining the development of precarious employment in recent decades in different settings, ranging from industrial relations and employment relationships to consideration of regulation, policy and actual working conditions in different sectors, the authors, writing from different disciplinary perspectives, provide a rich and varied analysis of precarious employment. They suggest that the best tool for understanding the phenomenon is a power relations approach based on class, gender and ethnicity.

    The Governing of Shopkeepers in Sweden: The Shop Opening Hours Discussions, 1904–19912010In: Revija za sociologiju (Sociological Review), ISSN 0350-154X, Vol. 40, no 3, p. 297-323Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyses how shopkeepers were governed in the Swedish shop opening hours discussion between 1904 and 1991. The article examines how different “problematisations”, i.e., the questioning of governing, lead to particular regimes of practices. These regimes were made visible with particular techniques (mainly inquiries performed by experts) and were informed by various forms of knowledge, i.e. social and welfare issues in the 1904–1919 period, welfare and consumerism in the 1930–1948 period, welfare, efficiency, rationalisation and large-scale benefits in the 1955–1966 period, consumerism and large-scale benefits during the 1970s, and in the final period (1980s–1990s), freedom of the market. These different forms of knowledge came to determine the very existence of shopkeepers but also consumers. The article demonstrates how the problematisations, forms of knowledge and regimes were interlinked and exhibited change as well as continuity over time. However, the regimes are highly contingent, which means that they can be resisted. The perspective of governmentality allows to reflect on consumers as governing subjects. Consumers’ late evening and Sunday shopping practices contribute to the governing of both consumers and shopkeepers alike.

    Bortom Lissabonstrategin: Om projektarbetares erfarenheter av inkluderingsarbete2010Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The European commission formed the first version of the Lisbon strategy in 2000. The objective was to turn the European Union into ‘the most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economy in the world capable of sustainable economic growth with more and better jobs and greater social cohesion’ by 2010. One of the governing mechanisms for achieving this is the Social Fund. The objective of the Social Fund in Sweden is to ‘contribute to speeding up change and renewal within working life’. The Social Fund co-finances project that either focus on giving increased opportunities to development and renewal within working life through competence development, or giving increasing job-opportunities. Projects with the latter aim should enhance for individuals that are far from the labor market to get a job and stay through ‘unconventional methods’. In this report we analyze projects with these objectives and methods, targeting groups such as immigrants, sick-listed, disabled and youths. The report contains the origin, development and current state of the Social Fund, a mapping of funded projects during 2008, a qualitative study of project worker's experiences of inclusionary work; attitudes towards the project participants, methods, collaboration with authorities and discre­pancies between project idea and actual practice. The report ends with a discussion on the consequences of project workers' encounter with project participants. Should projects or participants be adjusted? We characterise the project activities as hybridization between social work and education and discuss possible processes of inclusion and dangers of exclusion within the projects. We emphasise the importance of a non-discriminatory policy and suggest the implementation of such a policy in terms of equality mainstreaming in the applications.

    Collaboration for local economic development: Business networks, politics and universities in two Swedish cities2008In: European Planning Studies, ISSN 0965-4313, E-ISSN 1469-5944, Vol. 16, no 4, p. 487-505Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article we want to show how conceptions about collaboration for local eocnomic development in Sweden are constructed on national and local levels. We also show how these conceptions have been realized in two different company networks, in the city of Östersund ("Odenskog företagsstaden") and in the city of Karlskrona ("Telecom City"). In politics and research, local collaboration or cluster formation are viewed as important tools and levers for local economic development. However, we argue that the local labour markets and unemployment rates in our case studies do not differ significantly, despite very different strategies for collaboration. Therefore, we suspect that the political focus on collaboration is a way of legitimizing the change in regional policy rather than a delegation of real power to the local level. If this continues, we fear that the current regional policy is reduced to a discourse of popular concepts rather than a real instrument for local economic development.

    Att få dom att förändras: Jobbcoaching för arbetslösa i socialfondsprojekt2011Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Att få dom att förändras. Jobbcoaching för arbetslösa i socialfondsprojekt analyserar vad det innebär när en företeelse som coaching färdas från företagsvärlden, dvs. amerikanskt näringsliv och landar i svensk offentlig sektor, dvs. i ESF-projekt riktade till arbetslösa. Jobbcoaching inom dessa projekt blir en blandning av idéer och tankesätt från beteende-, kognitiv och humanistisk coaching samt traditionell yrkesvägledning. En central slutsats är att jobbcoaching förbiser orsaker till arbetslöshet som ligger utanför den arbetslöse. Om man vill förändra hindrande strukturer är inte jobbcoaching en metod som syftar till detta utan snarare till att individerna ska anpassa sig till rådande strukturer, dvs. dominerande normer och föreställningar om hur människor bör vara och bete sig för att vara anställningsbara. I rapporten föreslås en ömsesidig kompensatorisk coachingsmodell som utgår från ett flerdimensionellt förhållningssätt till arbetslöshetsproblematiken. Ömsesidig anpassning av både individ och arbetsliv bör fokuseras snarare än endast en enkelriktad anpassning av individen. Den omgivande miljön; organisationers, samhällets och politikens inflytande på människors möjligheter att få ett arbete måste tas i beaktande.

    Desilencing Complexities: Addressing Categorization in Cross-cultural Management with Intersectionality and Relationality2018In: International Studies of Management and Organization, ISSN 0020-8825, E-ISSN 1558-0911, Vol. 48, no 3, p. 294-313Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A central focus of cross-cultural management research is how individuals and organizations differ across national cultures and how that fundamentally shapes their thoughts and actions and serves as a unit of identification. In this article, we critically reconsider the essential categorical nature of culture, problematizing categorization and questioning national culture as the primary basis of differentiation. We draw on intersectionality, an approach that helps understand how multiple categories are experienced by the individual, and on relationality, an approach that conceptualizes people, organizations, and their actions within dynamic patterns of relations and cultural meanings. Both approaches challenge the primacy, unity, and separateness of any given category, the a priori determination of categories (and associated boundaries) in research, and the nature and stability of boundaries. Based on this we advance notions of boundary work and boundary shifting that help explore how today’s sociocultural groups and categories, and the boundaries that separate them, emerge and change. We conclude that, while the extant cross-cultural literature has come far in identifying differences, relationality and intersectionality can enable cross-cultural scholars to engage in research practice that better reflects the complexities of sociocultural life. We contribute to theory by suggesting why and how these two approaches can be used to explore complex cross-cultural management phenomena.
