    An Alternative View of Integrated Sustainable Development Through a Time-Spatial Lens2012In: OIDA International Journal of Sustainable Development, ISSN 1923-6654, E-ISSN 1923-6662, Vol. 3, no 12, p. 87-96Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The conventional monetary market oriented economic view of development is the dominant approach of development, despite its shortcomings and inability to include social and environmental aspects into long term processes of change. Essential values are often concealed or even excluded in conventional monetary analyses, which are fundamental for integrated sustainable livelihoods.Using a time-spatial perspective, building on Hägerstrand’s time-geography, this article aims to elaborate upon an alternative conceptual development approach. The time-spatial model open for an alternative constructive approach to analyze and physically anchoring socio-economic and ecological processes extended over time. Such a view thereby contrasts and reaches beyond the conventional monetary market growth strategy.Combining the conceptual discussion with empirical illustrations from rural livelihoods in Sweden, the article highlight new alternative political-economic analytical tools and strategies to achieve sustainable sound integrated socio-, economic-, and ecological development processes.

    Local Alternative Development through a Time-Spatial Lens: A Case Study of Ydre Inspired by Hägerstrand2013In: Entrepreneurship, Social Capital and Governance: Directions for the Sustainable Development and Competitiveness of Regions / [ed] Charlie Karlsson, Börje Johansson and Roger R. Stough, Edward Elgar Publishing, 2013, p. 378-391Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This book highlights the role of entrepreneurship, social capital and governance for regional economic development. In recent decades, many researchers have claimed that entrepreneurship is the most critical factor in sustaining regional economic growth. However, most entrepreneurship research is undertaken without considering the fundamental importance of the regional context. Other research has emphasized the role of social capital but there are substantial problems in empirically relating measures of social capital to regional economic development.

    The expert contributors to this work highlight the role of governance in regional growth, an area that has so far been relatively under-researched, underpinning their findings with new theoretical and empirical evidence. They conclude that the relationship between entrepreneurship, social capital and governance in factors affecting regional economic development are complex and interdependent, and that to influence these factors and the relationship between them, policymakers must have a long-term perspective and be both patient and persistent in their efforts.

    This enlightening book will be of great interest to academics, students and researchers across a range of fields including regional science, regional economics, economic geography, regional planning, public policy, entrepreneurship, political science and economic sociology. Policymakers involved in regional policymaking from national down to regional and local levels will also find the book to be an illuminating read.

    Local Policy Entrepreneurs and Sustainable Development in Rural Areas2015In: Regional development in an international context: regional, national, cross border and international factors for growth and development. Revised papers presented at the 18th Uddevalla symposium, 11-13 June, 2015, Sönderborg, Denmark / [ed] Iréne Bernhard, Trollhättan: Högskolan Väst , 2015, p. 59-74Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    A popular trend in today’s development debate is to highlight arguments favouring local production, local entrepreneurship, or the importance of buying local. But what do we actually mean when we talk about the term “local”. Similar to other popular development terms, the concept “local” seems to be used in a wide variety of meanings and interpretations. Furthermore, the term “local” is also often connected as an important component in the perhaps even more vague argumentations for sustainable development.        

    The conventional view of development, based on economic growth, promotes expansion in space and compression in time – a global market economy. This dominant technical-economic approach largely use general technological and institutional policies and solutions more suitable for urban large-scale structures. Such structures and policies thereby tend to hamper what often is seen as local development.

    Initially, the article discusses the term “local” using a geographical time-spatial conceptual approach. With the use of empirical field studies focusing on rural local development in Sweden, the article thereafter apply the approach in an analytical framework to clarify and identify the meaning(s) of the term local, and identify the possibilities and constraints of processes of change in time and space – e.g. local development. In so doing, the time-spatial approach provide a possibility to identify the potential for alternative interwoven applicable local policy instruments and strategies.

    Public Services Choices When There Are No Alternatives?: A Paradox of New Public Management in Rural Areas2012In: Journal of Rural and Community Development, ISSN 1712-8277, E-ISSN 1712-8277, Vol. 7, no 2, p. 1-17Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is a common decrease in services in rural areas around the world. This is not at least the case regarding public services, since the decreasing population also decreases the resources available for local public services. The aim of this article is to critically analyse challenges of New Public Management in a rural area community in Sweden to discuss the complex double management role (as employer and as service provider) of the rural municipality. The core of NPM is based on a private sector ethos and is thus also heavily influenced by corporate sector techniques and management. In this paradigm cost effectiveness and efficiency become the dominant considerations for how the state is run. It becomes even more problematic in rural areas without a critical mass of customers (former citizens) and additional costs for transportation. This is illustrated by a discussion of local schools. The analysis shows that even non-monetary resources should be taken into account to reach legitimate policy changes in rural communities. This opens for a creative discussion on time-spatial localized policy-making including extending the interpretations of local resources.

    Home: The Arena for Sustainable development - A Conceptual Discussion2010In: International Journal of Environmental, Cultural, Economic and Social Sustainability, ISSN 1832-2077, Vol. 6, no 1, p. 319-332Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In contemporary society, the environment is often regarded as a global issue that requires international attention However, the global problem surrounding the environment can be regarded as a symptom and result of the everyday activities of people at a local level. A focus on a local level can be identified as a focus on the household, which consists of individuals who live together and is a space where everyday life is organised and takes place. Depending on the different academic disciplinary contexts in which they operate, various interpretations and analyses of the household and everyday life within the household will vary. Even in daily political languages there are different meanings and interpretations. The aim of this paper is to distinguish and discuss the implications of viewing the home in three different contexts; as a physical dwelling, as a node of economic resource management, and finally as a dwelling for a social and emotional family. These three dimensions of everyday life are related to the three dimensions of sustainable development and an analysis that can identify and integrate these dimensions can provide possibilities for creating sustainable development processes combining local and global solutions to ways of living.
