    Faith-based organisations and Social Exclusion in Sweden2011Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This project concerns the present role of Faith-Based Organisations (FBOs) in matters of social exclusion in cities. Participating countries are: Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, UK, Turkey, Spain and Sweden. A FBO is any organisation that refers directly or indirectly to religion or religious values, and functions as a welfare provider or as a political actor. The central assumption is that FBOs tend to fill the gap left after the supposed withdrawal of the welfare state in several domains of public life, particularly in social welfare and in social protection. At first sight, this looks like a return to the charity of former times, when such associations occupied the fore of social help in many countries. But we might as well witness the beginning of a new type of welfare regime with a stronger focus on local policies and strategies and new interplays between local authorities and civil society organisations.

    Swedish Muslims and Secular Society: Faith-Based Engagement and Place2015In: Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations, ISSN 0959-6410, E-ISSN 1469-9311, Vol. 26, no 2, p. 145-163Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article sets out to explore how Muslims in Sweden identify with and create social life in the place where they live, that is, in their neighbourhood, in their town/city and in Swedish society at large. In a paradoxical religious landscape that includes a strong Lutheran state church heritage and a Christian free-church tradition, in what is, nevertheless, a very secular society, Muslims may choose different strategies to express their faith, here roughly described as "retreatist," "engaged" or "essentialist/antagonistic." Focusing on a non-antagonistic, engaged stance, and drawing upon a combination of authors interviews, and materials published in newspapers and on the Internet, we first bring to the fore arguments by Muslim leaders in favour of creating a Muslim identity with a Swedish brand, and second give some examples of local Muslim individuals, acting as everyday makers in their neighbourhood, town or city. Third, we also give attention to an aggressively negative Islamophobic stance expressed both in words and in physical violence in parts of Swedish society. In conclusion, we reflect upon the challenges and potentialities of an emotionally engaged, dialogue-orientated Muslim position facing antagonistic interpretations of Islam, and an ignorant, sometimes Islamophobic, environment.

    Multiplying the Unique2011In: Politics and the Arts in a Time of Crisis and Anxiety: Political Symbols: Between Impact and Intentions, University of Iceland, 2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Twelve small forest huts were built during the mid-1990s, nearby the lake of Skärsjön in a rural part of Sweden renowned for its age-old iron making industry. They were constructed with economic support by the local municipality and the National Labour Market Board, and modeled after charcoal workers’ lodges. Ten years later an entrepreneur opened up a hostel with an eco-friendly profile at the premises, in cooperation with The Swedish Tourist Association. Guests now stay over in the charcoal workers’ simple wooden huts, fetch drinking water in a fresh forest well, cook food on an open fire and wash the dishes under a small waterfall in a nearby creek. Wildlife adventures such as moose safaris or wolf howling tours are offered to the visitors upon request. The operation is called Kolarbyn [literally the charcoal burner village]. The ideological organization of the land and its nature – as in the actual soil, vegetation and the role of man – has changed since the building of Kolarbyn. Selective parts of a mining heritage conservation discourse is marked with new meanings and incorporated in an eco-tourism imaginary. The unique outdoor experience also produces the tourist as a busy city man on a merely brief visit to the countryside. Kolarbyn has won several prestigious national and international awards and is featured in international tourism guides and the coffee table book genre illustrating “unusual hotels”. This landscape is moreover overdetermined and contains more assets than the local natural qualities and a cultural heritage. It also borrows ingredients (such as mythic tales and special rituals) from other stagings of unique places, which introduces a paradox. Elements from other unique places are included, so this could be recognized, sanctioned and used as precisely a unique place. By invoking singularity, the place simultaneously multiplies as it becomes identifiable as one among many unique hotels.

    Abstract [en]

    Twelve small forest huts were built during the mid-1990s, in a rural part of Sweden renowned for its age-old iron making industry. They were constructed as a social action program for unemployed workers. With support by the local municipality and the National Labour Market Board, the huts were modeled after olden charcoal workers’ lodges.

    Trosbaserade organisationer och den svenska välfärden2011In: Perspektiv på offentlig verksamhet i utveckling: Tolv kapitel om demokrati, styrning och effektivitet. / [ed] Hellberg, Ann-Sofie etal, Örebro: Örebro universitet , 2011Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Den tvärvetenskapliga Forskarskolan offentlig verksamhet i utveckling

    (FOVU) är ett samarbete mellan Örebro kommun och Örebro universitet.

    Forskarskolan startades hösten 2008 med avsikten att stödja och inspirera

    till utvecklingsarbeten i offentlig förvaltning, samt samla och inrikta

    forskningsgrupper vid universitetet kring offentliga utvecklingsfrågor. Tack

    vare detta unika samarbete mellan Örebro kommun och Örebro universitet

    har ett flertal doktorander antagits inom ämnesområdena

    Nationalekonomi, Företagsekonomi, Informatik och Statsvetenskap. Två år

    har nu gått sedan forskarskolan startade och denna antologi kan ses som en

    halvtidrapport, där delar av den forskning som genomförts inom dess ramar

    presenteras.

    Antologin består av tolv kapitel från doktorander och forskare som är

    verksamma i forskarskolan eller på olika sätt knutna till dess verksamhet.

    Avsikten är att belysa ett antal centrala problemställningar och resonemang

    i relation till offentlig förvaltning och samtidigt ge exempel på den

    forskning som bedrivs inom FOVU och dess angränsande miljöer. Uppslaget

    till antologin har växt fram i diskussioner mellan forskarskolans

    doktorander som också har ansvarat för samordningen av arbetet.

    Antologin spänner över en mängd frågor och områden vilket belyser den

    offentliga förvaltningens räckvidd och komplexitet. Kapitlens ordning

    bildar ett flöde där efterföljande kapitel på olika sätt relaterar till varandra.

    Alla kapitel knyter an till frågor om demokrati, styrning och effektivitet

    som löper som en röd tråd genom antologin. En ständig utmaning för

    styrningen av offentlig verksamhet ligger i balansen mellan effektivitet och

    demokrati. Demokrati är inte alltid effektivt, samtidigt mister effektiviteten

    sitt värde utan den demokratiska förankringen. Nya utmaningar uppstår,

    nya lösningar prövas, bestående är dock denna balansakt. Det är därför

    högst relevant att ha en kontinuerlig diskussion och kunskapsöverföring

    gällande dessa frågor, vilket vi ämnar bidra till genom denna antologi.

    Women’s educational pathways to political power in Sweden2016In: Gränser, mobilitet och mobilisering: nationell konferens för genusforskning, Linköping, 2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta paper undersöker den svenska politiska elitens bildningsvägar ur ett makt- och genusperspektiv. Den svenska politiska eliten definieras här som riksdagsledamöter, statsråd och EU-parlamentariker. Till grund för undersökningen används registerdata för nominerade och valda från SCB för samtliga riksdags- och EU-parlamentsval sedan 1991 (det finns inga heltäckande uppgifter för valen dessförinnan). Materialet är en totalundersökning och innehåller bland annat uppgifter om partitillhörighet, ålder, kön, födelseort/land, bostadsort, länstillhörighet, högsta utbildning, inriktning på gymnasieutbildning, inriktning på högskolestudier hos de nominerade och förtroendevalda. Ett första syfte är här att ge en heltäckande bild av den svenska politiska elitens utbildningsbakgrund genom en statistisk kartläggning av vilka variationer som finns hos de nominerade och folkvalda med avseende på kön och utbildningsbakgrund, utbildningens inriktning, vilka framträdande utbildningsinstitutioner som dominerar och de variationer som finns geografiskt och mellan partierna. För det andra avser projekt att studera den politiska elitens föreställningar om betydelsen av bildning och utbildning för att kunna hävda sig i den politiska maktsfären. Detta för att spåra olika bildningsideal och utbildningsrelaterade diskurser och deras betydelse för den politiska elitens reproduktion. Till grund för den här andra delen av studien ligger ett 25-tal djupintervjuer med företrädare från samtliga riksdagspartier. Kvinnor har högskoleutbildning i högre grad än män i den svenska politiska eliten, något som vittnar om att män i den svenska politiska eliten har lättare att nå höga positioner genom andra meriter än formell utbildning.

    Sammantaget avser detta paper ge kunskap om vilka könade maktstrukturer och möjlighetsvillkor som kännetecknar svenska nominerade och folkvaldas utbildningsvägar. Studien ingår i ett större forskningsprojekt med titeln ”Utbildningsvägar till makten” som finansierats av Vetenskapsrådet.

    Faith and place: constructing Muslim identity in a secular Lutheran society2013In: Cultural Geographies, ISSN 1474-4740, E-ISSN 1477-0881, Vol. 20, no 3, p. 319-337Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Non-Christian immigrants coming to Sweden encounter a mainly secular society with a strong Lutheran heritage, as physically symbolized by the more than 3500 church towers scattered throughout the country, often in central locations in cities and villages. In this landscape dotted with Christian landmarks, there are few visible physical spaces linked to the identity of Muslim immigrants. The aim of this article is to analyse the religious and cultural significance that Muslim immigrants attach to the presence or absence of mosques in their neighbourhood. Drawing upon a conceptual framework that distinguishes between physical, mental and social space, the analysis focuses on the meaning of place and the identity attached to the mosques. The empirical basis for the study includes interviews with imams complemented by articles and other written materials published in newspapers and on the internet. In the concluding section, we return to and reflect upon our overarching question: the relationship between faith and place in a multi-religious, multi-ethnic society. As illustrated in the article, mosques not only function as internal markers of religious faith but also serve as arenas where links can be developed to Christian and secular parts of Swedish society. Thus, they are important in providing both bonding and bridging capital, thus making it possible to develop a Muslim identity in Sweden.

    Abstract [en]

    Local governments in Europe are facing difficulties in meeting citizens demands for welfare provision. This opens new opportunities for profit as well as non-profit providers of social welfare. Faith-based organizations (FBOs) are one type of non-governmental organizations addressed by governments to complement or replace parts of public welfare provision. This article gives some examples of FBOs in action as providers of welfare in a European context, with a particular focus on Sweden. Following the introduction, the second part locates the phenomenon of FBOs within the scholarly debate about secularism/post-secularism as related to multi-level governance. The third part gives an overview of potential roles of FBOs in welfare provision combating poverty and social exclusion, illustrated by a few examples from European contexts. Focus in the fourth part is upon the role of FBO engagement in Sweden as developing after World War II. It is concluded that no system is all encompassing in catering to those who suffer from poverty and social exclusion. There will always be a need for the competence and avant-garde role potentially provided by FBOs. However, due to historical circumstances FBOs in Sweden have been, and still are, complementary rather than an outright alternative to public welfare provision.

    Faith-based organizations and Social Exclusion in Ireland and in Denmark2011 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    What is the changing and differentiated role played by faith-based organisations (FBOs), in fighting social distress and aiming for social justice in cities in the Netherlands? Based on a series of semi-structured interviews over a period of time and a desk study of FBOs, this paper draws on relations between urban governance and citizenship practices to tease out the implications for FBOs in politics of social justice. We argue that neoliberalisation: (1), opens spaces for the ‘reaching out’ and ‘de-privatising’ of FBOs into the urban public realm in new and sometimes contrasting ways; and (2), creates incentives for FBOs to professionalise and maximise efficiency, heralding a new entrepreneurial approach in the urban politics of social justice. Referring to the Oudewijken Pastoraat and the House of Hope in Rotterdam, we reveal striking differences in philosophy and methodology of faith responses to social distress. Changing governance of urban neighbourhoods rooted in professionalisation captures part of the explanation. We draw attention to the incremental and contested revalorising of faith actors as the informal, but increasingly professionalising, seat or underside of traditional social democratic welfare provision in the Netherlands. The paper concludes with a reflection on questions for new geographical inquiry on FBOs and cities.

    Abstract [en]

    This report forms part of a wider pan-European research project on Faith-Based Organisations and Exclusion in European Cities (FACIT) funded by the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme. Researchers from seven European countries are addressing a common research agenda to investigate the role of Faith-Based Organisations (FBOs) in tackling different forms of social exclusion in urban contexts, and are focusing on a number of significant questions. How are FBOs positioned in combating social exclusion and promoting social cohesion? How has this role changed over time? What are the implications of FBO involvement for policy and governance in different nations? The first task of the research teams has been to undertake a mapping of the involvement of national-level FBOs in tackling social exclusion. In this report we present the findings of that mapping exercise for the UK.

    Discourse and ideology: story-telling, images, and the space of conflicts2011Conference proceedings (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This section invites papers from the poststructuralist and anti/post-foundationalist approach topolitics. Submissions may include case studies or theoretical work, or a combination of both. Weparticularly invite papers dealing with contingency and conflict, and meaning-making as a form ofpolitics. The papers may wish to focus on concepts, discourse, logics, narratives, rhetoric or specifictropes, and may draw from a range of theoretical perspectives associated with the linguistic turnand poststructuralism (Derrida, Foucault, Lacan, Laclau, Mouffe, Rancière, Skinner, etc.).The section hopes to focus on the political, and would like to devote some time in making clearthe contributions of this kind of approaches to the study of politics - rather than cultural studies, linguistics or sociology, just to name a few neighbouring fields where the focus may differ.The empirical case studies may range from an area specific focus (e.g. Latin America, Europeanpolitics), to theoretico-empirical topics such as feminism, ethnicity or populism, or urban politics,politics of the past, and politics and art. Politics under investigation may take place on the global, national, transnational, regional or local level. The study of language, metaphors and visual imagesor sounds – or indeed the classics, time and space – is encouraged but not expected. Dealing with poststructuralist and anti/post-foundationalist approach to politics, this sectionproposes to interrogate those precise moments and ideas of ground and grounding, rupture andcontingency – besides discussing the issues presented in the panels. How and what to study, whenstudying the political or politics in its various dimensions? A large part of the section will be held only in English to meet the demand for such panels byinternational researchers working in the Nordic countries, who are expected to join Nordic colleagues at the NOPSA Conference 2011.

    14. The workings of political discourses

    Description 

    This section invites papers from the post-structuralist and anti/post-foundationalist approach to politics. Submissions may include case studies or theoretical work, or a combination of both. The papers may draw from a range of theoretical perspectives associated with the linguistic turn and poststructuralism (Foucault, Laclau, Mouffe, Derrida, Lacan, Rancière, Skinner, Freeden etc.).

    The aim of the workshop is to highlight the workings and contents of political discourses, ideologies, hegemonic projects etc, in their contingent struggles and conflicts over the meaning and content of central social and political issues. Papers may approach this question in a variety of directions. 

    Theoretical questions could include for example the following: What is radical politics and/or democracy today? What is the (radical) political subject? Does populism constitute a specific political form? What, if anything makes discourses political? Are political ideologies and hegemonic projects constituted by demands, political concepts or something else?  Are there specific organisational forms – movements, the party form – linked to radical politics?

    Empirically we welcome analyses of political ideologies and projects all across the spectrum: local protests, new types of parties, to analysis of new forms of populism, Podemos and Syriza but also Putin, Trump and Sanders; global, glocal or national issues of climate change, political and institutional change, and questions of democracy. 

    The language of the work-shop is in English.

    Workshop 11: POWER AND THE POLITICAL

    The aim of the workshop is to further debates on power and the political, their relationships and to carry out studies of the two. The workshop gains its inspiration from poststructuralist discourse theory, Ernesto Laclau’s work and Foucault in particular, but is open to other approaches that seek to theorize power and/or the political and their connection to the contexts of investigation. In broad terms Foucault's work focuses on questions of governing, the more silent, micro day to day workings of political power, whereas Laclau's work directs the attention to moments of rupture, the creation of broader popular movements and identities.Papers are invited which compare the two approaches, as well as papers reflecting on the concepts of politics and power following from either, or compared with other approaches. We welcome (however do not limit the range of papers to) contributions from post-Marxist, post-foundational, feminist, postcolonial or psychoanalytic research traditions.The aim of the workshop is to question any taken-for-granted nature of these two dimensions in the study of politics, and to help make explicit what is implied – theoretically and methodologically – in the different approaches. How we might study politics is intimately related to the reflections on the nature of the political and power, and vice versa.The language of the workshop is English, to in particular welcome international scholars working in the Nordic countries.

    The Folk High School: A Contemporary Educational Pathway for Swedish Parliamentarians?2019In: Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, ISSN 0031-3831, E-ISSN 1470-1170, Vol. 63, no 3, p. 347-362Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to explore the contemporary role of the folk highschool as an educational pathway for Swedish MPs. Statistics from the folkhigh school register at Statistics Sweden are analysed. In summary, thereare still quite a large number of former folk high school participants inthe Swedish parliament (27%, 2014). The MPs’ folk high schoolparticipation mainly took the form of short courses. Over time, the folkhigh schools have increasingly come to be used by members of partieson the left of the political spectrum. The folk high schools arecommonly used as meeting places during the MPs’ political career, andthus not only as an educational pathway to power, as emphasised inearlier research.
