    Home: The Arena for Sustainable development - A Conceptual Discussion2010Inngår i: International Journal of Environmental, Cultural, Economic and Social Sustainability, ISSN 1832-2077, Vol. 6, nr 1, s. 319-332Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    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.

    Roles of Policy Entrepreneurs and Policy Networks in Innovation Implementation: A study of the implemenation of two Swedish municipal contact centers2012Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to discuss lessons learned of policy entrepreneurs to analyze how local policy entrepreneurs are instrumental in setting up local municipal contact centers - a Swedish e-governmental initiative - by problematizing actors and structures in regional policies on development issues. The increased interest in political entrepreneurship has both analytical and practical grounds and implications. There are demands for further learning in approaching the new roles of entrepreneurial actors, which are approached here in relation to their localization, how they act to expand action spaces for themselves as well as others in the local community.

    This study is based on two qualitative field studies of municipal contact centers. The main methods used were interviews with key actors, document studies and observations. The results indicate two main implications of Contact Centers; they localize public services and combine different services into a one-stop operation, striving to provide a ‘holistic’ approach to the individual citizen in her local context. However, the implementation of the contact centers also included an organizational change within the municipalities, facilitating a reorganization of back-office procedures in order to optimize the efficiency and quality aspects. The policy entrepreneurs forming the contact centers promoted them from different perspectives and with varying ambitions. In one case the core values of inclusion and participation drove the creation of the contact center, while in the other case the issue as such was key – a new organizational approach. This is related here to different approaches of policy networks and entrepreneurial behavior.

    Trust in Safe Public e-services: Translating Policies into Use2010Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The emerging information society challenges relations between public agencies and citizens in many ways. Such relations taking place on the Internet or in other specific systems are called public e-services, which is a basic component of e-government. E-services as such are innovations – even if the service as such has been there before – it is a new way producing and organizing the service. For successful implementation of innovations in public contexts the innovations has to be considered as legitimate by all involved actors. On a European and national level there are some policies and emerging standardization regarding public e-services. Thus policies are translated both to other levels of governments in the multi-level governance chain and secondly from technical to administrative settings. Since the Swedish public administration rely on a double steering approach, with strong constitutional regional and local autonomy, such policies cannot be forced out into regional local public agencies. Instead European and national policy statements become soft policy instruments in the local context and the implications from them rely on the local uptake in the specific setting and the competences of the professionals in the local public administration. Since this is a new emerging field of innovative practice our analysis will build on an inductive methodological approach. The theoretical framework of policy and technology translation opens for inclusion of this broad process of changes. Our focus here on the translation process is to highlight both translations over levels in multi-level settings and constructions of meanings of safety. The conclusion is that the translation over levels from policies to praxis appears to be more critical than the technological translation. In short: the organizational settings of multi-level governance are greater constraints than new technology for implementation of public e-services.

    Bridging Digital Divides through Digital Media Buses: An action research study on digital inclusion in Sweden2017Inngår i: Conference for E-Democracy and Open Government (CeDEM), 2017, 2017Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Strategies and policies to bridge identified and potential digital divides is a core challenge when forming an inclusive and participatory digital democracy and society. In line with the progress and development of digital technologies and applications governments have to address digital divides. This project discusses how social and digital divides have been addressed in a project called “The Digital media bus in Östergötland”. This project builds on the library buses that have has been running in the region for long a long time. The libraries in Sweden also have to address digital inclusion and implement strategies towards increased use of and knowledge about information technologies. This analysis builds on an action research approach. The analyse here are focusing on the implementation, project management and how the project has addressed digital inclusion. Finally, we end up discussing the diversity of digital inclusion, elaborating on the meanings of digital divides and digital diversity.

    Constructing identities: Professional use of eID in public organisations2015Inngår i: Transforming Government: People, Process and Policy, ISSN 1750-6166, E-ISSN 1750-6174, Vol. 9, nr 2, s. 143-158Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose– The purpose of the paper is to reveal how identities are constructed when electronic identification (eIDs) cards are introduced through information systems in public organisations. Design/methodology/approach– Through two case studies, the authors generate rich data on the construction of identities through use of eID within public organisations. The author’s analysis, based on actor network theory, focusses on the translation of eIDs in these two settings. Findings– ID can be viewed as an artefact where the public and private spheres meet. The authors found at least three mixed roles in employees’ use of eID: as a purely private person; as a private person in the work place; and as a professional in the work place. Research limitations/implications– There is a need for further research on how eID is translated into organisational contexts and how institutional settings define the openings for local translation processes. However, the results are based on two small cases, meaning that broad generalisations are difficult to make. Practical implications– EID is so much more than technology. The technical framing of the identification system appears to be subordinated to organisational arrangements and cultures, making it important to apply a socio-technical perspective when working with eID. Originality/value– The empirical cases have offered a unique chance to study implementation and use of eID in two very different public service organisations. The findings illustrate how eID translated into organisational contexts, and how identity management within an organisational setting is linked to the employees’ private and professional roles.

    Implementering av patientlagstiftning: En lång resa från goda intentioner till nya förhållningssätt i vårdvardagen2017Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här rapporten belyser och analyserar svårigheterna att implementera lagstiftning som tillkommit under senare år för att ge patienter bättre möjligheter att påverka den vård de får. I patientmaktsutredningens delbetänkande om Patientlag (SOU 2013:2) uppmärksammas eftersläpning i implementeringen av flera av de åtgärder som trädde i kraft år 2010 som vårdgaranti, fast vårdkontakt och förnyad medicinsk bedömning (prop. 2009 /10:67 Stärkt ställning för patienten). De mest framträdande lagändringar som skett under senare år för att stärka patienters ställning är rätten till vårdval, det vill säga att välja vårdgivare inom och utom regionen (SFS 1982:763), rätten att få en förnyad medicinsk bedömning en så kallad second opinion (3 a § SFS 1982:763), rätten att få vård inom viss tid, den så kallade vårdgarantin (SFS 1982:763), samt möjligheten att välja vårdgivare inom EU. Sammantaget handlar det om åtgärder som ska stärka patientens ställning och ge den enskilde patienten inflytande över hälso- och sjukvården (SOU 2013:44).

    Frågor om patienters inflytande i vården är inte nya. De har successivt vuxit fram. Ett viktigt steg togs redan år 1990 då patienter i de flesta landsting fick möjlighet att välja vård utanför det egna landstinget. Det dåvarande Landstingsförbundet rekommenderade då landstingen att utöka patientens valmöjligheter av utförare över landstingsgränserna (SOU 2013:2). Sedan dess har policyer för att stärka patienters inflytande, engagemang och delaktighet i sin egen vård och hälsa uppmärksammats i flera utredningar och lagförslag.

    Denna rapport analyserar implementeringen av patientlagstiftning. Syftet är dels att utifrån fallstudier belysa hur lagstiftning om vårdens skyldigheter i förhållande till patienter implementeras och dels att analysera hur och varför utfallet varierar, för att kunna diskutera möjliga sätt att förstärka implementeringen av denna lagstiftning. Syftet konkretiseras i dessa övergripande forskningsfrågor:

    1. Hur påverkas implementeringen av patientlagstiftning av det regionskommunala självstyret?
    2. Hur påverkas implementeringen av patientlagstiftning av lagstiftningens utformning?
    3. Hur bidrar eller hindrar sjukvårdens professioner implementeringen av lagstiftningsåtgärder som syftar till att stärka patienters inflytande i vården?
    4. Hur bidrar eller hindrar medborgarna implementeringen av lagstiftningsåtgärder som syftar till att stärka patienters inflytande i vården?....

    Internet café as a supportive educational arena: a case study from the urban slum of Kibera, Nairobi, Kenya2011Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to interpret a case study of the unexpected educational impact of an Internet Café – Cyber – in the slum of Kibera, Kenya. Our focus is here to examine the transformation of ICT in development country, and more specific in Nairobi, in Kenya. We consider this an interesting illustration of the spread of globalization to a local community in a development country and how learning takes place in unexpected contexts. Therefore the paper takes off from a comprehensive portrait of one Internet café in the urban slum area and its management, some users and non-regular users. As a part of a long-term field study this analysis is a first analysis of the project and it also aim to illustrate from conception to realization, and implementation of Internet café.

    We are studying one actor, a NGO driven commitment that opened an Internet café in Kibera primary to generate income, provide access to Internet for the local people and a more general ambition to develop the local community.  Field work has been on-going and consists of a series of interviews with key informants in the management, and interviews with adolescent customers (users and non-regular users) of the Cyber. Our findings show that there is a clear ambition from the management of the Internet Café to enable computer literacy and bridge digital divides, as well as social and educational progress. Such learning takes place even if it looks like clients mainly use Facebook or browse the Internet. The findings also show that focus on eco-friendly technique to act as a role model was overshadowed by profit-making aims. Even if Internet Café is managed by a NGO they have a clear profit focus. In the beginning the Cyber had a more educating purpose, or a charity purpose, by letting poor people have access to Internet to a cheaply cost, but when established the economic aspects made it behave like a market actor. The main purpose of the management to empower poor people computer literacy is worthy, however doubtful, because it emerges with training and economy. Recent technological development of Internet on the cell phones has challenged the Internet cafés and there are incentives to use the cell phone even for activities that formerly was performed at the Internet Café. If the Internet is in everyone’s pocket the educational arena of the Internet Cafes’ are threaten, but the Cyber´s advantage is tutorial support from peers and management. The Internet Café promotes learning ambitions in the slum and presents opportunities available for them, but it also shows the divides of the knowledge society. Although youth in the slum with computer skills has got increased access to Internet, and their voices has reached out and in some way the digital divide between North and South has decreased.

    Managing quality in education in a multi-level governance system – strategies, constraints and innovations2015Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    When new forms of governance as New Public Management, user choices and competition in public services are becoming the normal praxis in Scandinavian public welfare services provided by municipalities and regions there are increasing demands for quality management. There is a basic need to follow up quality in services in particular when there are several providers of public services. The uses of quality management in private sectors are not completely applicable on these public services and thus the growing use of quality management in public services has to be addressed. In this paper the quality management in primary education is in focus both to focus on how these processes are arranged and what we can learn as more terms for quality management in public services.

    In addition it is far from clear what quality is in these new organizational settings of mixed public-private contexts and actors. The mix of actors are not just public and private, there are also several different organizational levels that interplay here. In spite of the local focus and provision of these services there is a lot of interaction, comparison and structures framed on national and even international levels.

    In this paper we will elaborate on the meanings of quality in education as a public service by analyzing the strategies, constraints and innovative responses in local schools as well as in municipal administration and policy-making processes. Case studies in five municipalities in Sweden is included, varying in size and thereby also by numbers of schools and structures of quality management. Based on this study we draw three types of more general conclusions and discuss three implications. First, we can notice that there is a need to clarify the roles and obligations of the different levels and actors in the education sectors. Second, there is a need to support and develop roles for mediating actors that can translate meanings of quality into public settings. Thirdly, there is need to elaborate on the meanings of quality management in public settings and also open up the meanings of quality in relation to education in particular and public services in general.

    The Computer Says No!: A Case Study on Automated Decision-making in Public Authorities2016Inngår i: 2016 49th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS), IEEE Press, 2016, s. 2903-2912Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In e-government automated decision-making increases, forming part of a trend towards “smart” and self-regulating systems. This necessitates the introduction of new relationships and practices, challenging the division of responsibilities in public administration. Using a case study approach, this paper elaborates on implications of automated decision-making for professional officers in a Swedish public organization. We conclude that automation should be framed in relation to the rules of law and ethics of justice. Furthermore, the roles and competences of professionals are changing, with automated systems beginning to resemble cobureaucrats. Professionals can either make an alliance with the automated system or the client. This choice of strategy is related to the issues of legitimacy and professional competences. We also identify practices as being either a form of caring ethics or a formal legal ethic norm. Such practices should be further addressed to influence practices promoting legitimate systems citizens can trust.

    Including and representing end-user’s needs when building Houses of Culture. A time-geographical perspective on stakeholders2012Inngår i: Public Works Management & Policy, ISSN 1087-724X, E-ISSN 1552-7549, Vol. 17, nr 4, s. 346-367Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Expressing end-user needs and including them into the public sector building process is crucial to the public sector client when making an informed and legitimate decision and implementation of a construction project. The aim of this article is to analyze how end-user needs can be, and in a specific case are, articulated and taken up differently by stakeholders through the early phases of the public building process. A time-geographical approach allows for theoretical analysis of the early phases of the construction project over time. Hereby an analysis of end-user needs can be visualized and thereby show the complexity of how to manage end-user needs in public building processes. It is here illustrated by the realization of a public House of Culture in a Scandinavian city. The analysis shows how stakeholders networked until the construction project and procurement forms were settled with the contractors. The analysis shows the complex interplay of how stakeholders take on end-user needs by integrating them into the policy process and the briefing process, creating new functional and technical building solutions. The public sector client has to create openings for all types of stakeholders to contribute as early as possible to the public building process when including and representing end-user needs.

    Technology in Policy: An Exploratory Case Study of Information Systems in Merging Authorities2010Inngår i: Proceedings of the 6th International Conference on Web Information Systems and Technology, INSTICC Press, 2010, s. 353-360Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper shows how e-government can, or might even have to, be considered as a public policy transformation. In the process of merging authorities into new organisations public policies on e-government appeared as a key activity. The case study presented in the paper is the formation of the new Swedish Transport Agency formed out of several formerly independent authorities. The Swedish case study is a mature public administration and basic democratic core values. The main contribution from the case study is to point out the importance of translation of policies into organizational practices.

    New ways and actors when diplomacy goes digital: The e-Diplomacy Campaign “Midwives4All2017Inngår i: Proceedings of the 50th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, 2017, Waikoloa: University of Hawaii , 2017, s. 2438-2447Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article focuses on Midwives4All, an e-diplomacy campaign launched by the Swedish MFA in 2015. The campaign aims to spread knowledge about the benefits of midwives and evidence-based midwifery. Within the campaign, the Swedish MFA, and in particular its Communications Department (UD-KOM), combines e-diplomacy and networking and the campaign has become one key activity within the Swedish feminist foreign policy. It is organizing diplomacy in new ways that regards both choices of channels and the networking with inter- and nongovernmental organizations. The limited impacts of the campaign are seen as consequences of the peripheral status of the issue and the lack of systematic structures for e-diplomacy so far. In spite of this the case indicates that e-diplomacy has the potential to raise and empower both new actor groups and new issues on the diplomatic agenda.

    “Östgöta Textile” an innovative network in a triple helix logic – towards peer incubating2012Inngår i: Entrepreneurship and innovation networks: revised papers presented at the 15th Uddevalla Symposium, 14-16 June, 2012, Faro, Portugal / [ed] Irene Bernard, Trollhättan: Department of Economics and IT, University West , 2012, s. 691-706Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Policies and practices promoting growth in jobs and local/regional economies almost always include the promotion of firms. In the triple helix logic, the promotion of firms can be supported by a close network of actors from government and universities. However, even firms that have been in business for long may need support to develop or stay in business. This is probably even more the case in small, instable markets. In creative industries such as art and handicraft, these growth processes might be even more complicated and intricate.

    This paper tells the story of a group of small, creative firms collaborating in a regional network to improved growth. The firms are all led by enthusiastic women in different stages of doing business through textile handicraft. The common theme is taking the cultural heritage of textile design and production further and even becoming tourist attractions.  They have formed a network named “Östgöta Textile” to help each other and find inspiration for growth through collaboration.

    Östgöta Textile is the outcome of a long process of network formation, aided by the university-led Kultexturism project that had the mission to help these women to form the network. By forming a network and finding public support (both economic and other resources), both the individual firms and the idea of the textile cultural heritage are promoted and marketed. The formalized network is called Östgöta Textile. During its first years, the network has focused on business learning schemes/education, shared marketing and exhibitions, a webpage etc. 

    The analysis of Östgöta Texile shows that the local and low-tech firms have received an important amount of help and support from the academic and governmental networks during the formative process. We describe how different types of entrepreneurs have taken on leading roles in this process and finally we elaborate on the idea the network as a form of peer incubation.

    Pockets of Local Orders for Local Policy Making - The Case of Information Society Infrastructure2008Inngår i: European spatial research and policy, ISSN 1231-1952, Vol. 15, nr 1, s. 39-51Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

     In the policies regarding the two most recent technology developments - broadband and third generation of mobile phones (3G) - the Swedish state has taken different roles and giving municipalities different spaces for policy making. Local policy making is here analysed in the perspectives of participating actors and policy problems to identify spaces for policy making by relating to the time-geographical concept Pocket of Local Order (Hägerstrand, 1985).

    Who is Governing What? Governing Local Technical Systems-an Issue of Accountability2008Inngår i: Local Government Studies, ISSN 0300-3930, E-ISSN 1743-9388, Vol. 34, nr 3, s. 349-362Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The article discusses accountability in governance of local energy and IT systems. The aim is to focus on accountability of local policy making regarding technical systems by comparing consequences when new forms of governance are developed. Governance steering demands and ensures a clear division of responsibility regarding what a network is responsible for, but not regarding who is accountable for the decision making and implementation. On the other hand, in a steering context characterized by government, it is clear who is responsible and accountable for decisions, but the specific issues for which different actors can be accountable are unclear. We argue that demands for clarifications of accountability emerges from the complex modern governance.

    Electronic identification in practice – a case study of the use and organization of eID in public e-services in schools2013Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    There is an increased use of public e-service integrating citizen into public administration through electronic interfaces. A safe entry into these systems is essential for security and trust in the e-governmental systems in particular and governmental activities in general. Electronic identification has over the years developed and been improved in order to be applicable and useful in different settings. This paper addresses how electronic identification has been used for access to public e-services in schools. The aim of the paper is to present a case study of use of electronic identification into ICT platforms in schools in order to analyze security, organization and potential development of the platforms. The analysis focuses on how security is arranged and perceived among users, using electronic identification and other types of login (passwords) and studies the differences of actual and perceived safety. The study found that there was an un-organized presentation of information in the system; both general and personal information had to be accessed through the same identification systems. The organization of identification and access to public e-services seemed highly dependent of the organizational structure of the educational sector in the municipality. There are potentials for development of trust and safety mainly by improving the awareness of different security levels of information. There is potential for development both of electronic identification, the organization of it and the use of public e-services in general.

    Dealing with environmental Responsibilities: Living Everyday Life as Political Participation2010Inngår i: Environmental Policy and Household Behaviour: Sustainability and Everyday Life / [ed] Söderholm, Patrik, Earthscan , 2010, s. 267-Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    `Househld activities account for about a quarter of our CO2 emissions yet relatively little research attention has been paid to this vital arean. The combination of theoretical insights and empirical underpinnings presented here is unparalleled. The SHARP team has provided researchers with an indispensable framework for future studies and policy makers will find a wealth of grounded research here on which to base informed policy.' Professor Andrew Dobson, Keele University, UKOur behaviour in our own homes - our recycling habits, consumer choices and transport preferences - all have a huge impact on the environment locally and globally. Governments across the world are trying to formulate and implement policies to encourage and enforce more sustainable household actions. Yet so often these policies fail to have the desired effects because of a lack of understanding of the complex interplay of policy and individual behaviour.This book examines this interplay, looking at the role of values, attitudes and constraints in the links between policy and changing behaviour at the household level. The first part of the book explores the theoretical background looking at the politics of lifestyles and lifestyle change, policy legitimacy and barriers and facilitators for pro-environmental behaviour. The second part is made up of in-depth case studies from Sweden - one of the fore-running countries in this area - examining three main types of household behaviour: waste and recycling; consumption and labelling; and transportation choices. Within these case studies, the contributors examine what policy initiatives have and haven't worked and the role of values and constraints in those processes.This is the first inter-disciplinary, in-depth look at how environmental policy enters the private, domestic sphere. The theoretical insights and policy guidance the book offers will be vital in the drive to generate behaviour change at the household level and the move towards sustainable societies

    Great visions, but who is holding the rudder?: Designing the model city Kiruna again2013Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Kiruna in northern Sweden was planned and designed to meet the needs of a growing mining city when the state company LKAB started mining in the area at the turn of 19th century. At the time, the Swedish social democratic welfare state was still in its infancy but there was an industrial community with the superintendent of LKAB, Hjalmar Lundbohm, in the front, caring for the workers in the artic conditions of the emerging city. Kiruna became a model city and role model for how a modern city could be designed and organized. The planning of the city was based on scientific knowledge, good architecture and inclusive social and economic values in the artic climate of the north, and was thus sustainable in ecological, social and economic terms long before the concept was invented. Kiruna became the city of good modern life, were risks were tackled and opportunities seized in collaboration between the municipality, the company and the central state.

    Today, several new risks and opportunities have emerged for the city due to deformations in the ground from the mining and a thereof necessary relocation of the city center. This means openings for becoming a model city again and for planning for a sustainable future, for which it further is a wish among local citizens and authorities. With contemporary policy making and planning characterized by a complex network of interactive meta-governance, there is however no obvious actor who will, can or have the competence to take the rudder for the necessary major transformation of the city. We will in this paper argue that there is a general lack of agency in contexts of societal transformation towards a sustainable society, as the one going on in Kiruna today. We will analyse the present local planning process in Kiruna to point out common problems of sustainable transitions, but also contrast the past major transformation (establishment) of Kiruna with the present when it comes to agency for transformation.

    Mediators in action: Organizing sociotechnical system change2013Inngår i: Technology in society, ISSN 0160-791X, E-ISSN 1879-3274, Vol. 35, nr 4, s. 267-275Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    To extend and deepen the roles of mediators in relation to sociotechnical change, this article first suggested an analytical approach which thereafter was used for analysing two cases illustrating two Swedish mediating organizations in different sectors at different time periods: the half state-/half industry funded Research Institute for Water and Air Protection, IVL, in the 1960s and 70s; and the Swedish Urban Network Association, SUNA, in the early years of the 21st century. We found that the associated sociotechnical systems changed through the actions of mediators and their organization of time-spatial specific settings. The mediator concept contributed to our understanding of these changes through a number of visible processes of translating rather than transferring specific knowledge, by functioning as a single entrance to knowledge, by supporting the selection processes, and sometimes by bridging knowledge in unforeseen ways. Overall, the mediating actors took on roles to promote the system and encouraged actors within the system to connect and develop both the system as such.

    When citizen movements redirect focus from the process to the object of planning – a case study of the ongoing major urban transformation of the mining town Kiruna, Sweden2013Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Physical planning is a main tool in the transformation of society in a more sustainable direction. Its concrete manifestation takes place at the local level of the municipality. In Sweden, this is even expressed as a constitutional municipal planning monopoly. Today, planning follows trends such as openness and participation – characterizing the late modern network governance – where there is a common striving to integrate the basic values of sustainable development into the community and amongst the citizens and other local stakeholders at the municipal level by decentralizing the planning process. Thus, local planning processes take place in an unclear interface of the formal representative democratic structure and participatory planning models and deliberative democracy ideas, where the process of planning is almost as important as the object of planning. In parallel with this development, a considerable gap has remained between policies for sustainability and their implementation and transformation into daily practices, which of course constitutes a major risk in society’s striving towards sustainability. This implementation gap will be addressed in the paper, which will use a single case study, the ongoing urban transformation of the city of Kiruna in Sweden, to discuss how the deliberative approach in the local planning process may help overcome the implementation gap.

    There is a major urban transformation ongoing – complete relocation of the city center – of the city of Kiruna, Norrbotten County in northern Sweden, due to deformations in the ground from the mining of the state company, LKAB, in adjacent Kiirunavaara Mountain. The local planning process for the necessary relocation of the city center had been going on for almost 10 years when a grassroots movement – Situation Kiruna – was formed in the autumn of 2012. Here, citizens demanded more action in practice in the local planning process and greater focus on the planning object. Guiding principles for the movement included “the local management must drop the rim and get into the game” and “Situation Kiruna do what the municipality should have done a long time ago; we inventory the needs and align the requirements where they belong”. In the paper we use the case of unsatisfied citizens influencing the local planning process through grassroots movements to theoretically discuss how deliberative approaches may contribute to improved practices beyond the planning process, i.e., to overcome the implementation gap between policies for sustainability and their implementation and transformation into daily practices.

    Politikens entreprenörskap: Kreativ problemlösning och förändring2011Collection/Antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [sv]

    Hur ser politikens entreprenörskap ut? Gäller samma regler och processer här som inom de klassiska entreprenörskapsteorierna? Kan vi lära av varandras entreprenörskap, och hur gör vi det i olika sammanhang?Hur kan man studera och förstå politikens entreprenörskap? Entreprenörskap har blivit ett modeord inom flera vetenskapsområden och står för något positivt och eftersträvansvärt. Tidigare har det varit en fråga för det privata näringslivet, där det alltid har kommit fram nya entreprenörer inom olika branscher. I den här boken lyfts de politiska entreprenörerna fram – entreprenörer som verkar inom den offentliga sektorn och i samarbete med näringsliv och ideella organisationer.

    Path Dependence on New Roads. Institutional Development of Quality Registers2014Inngår i: Offentlig Förvaltning. Scandinavian Journal of Public Administration, ISSN 2000-8058, E-ISSN 2001-3310, Vol. 18, nr 2, s. 3-22Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    When explaining social development and changes in public administration, institutional changeis a typical focus. Institutional analysis can combine the analyses of changes on the basis offormal legal and informal arrangements; it commonly shows that institutions lead to inertiawhere changes over time are concerned. Political aims are a guide to how organizations aredesigned and governed. When goals and earlier decisions clearly guide change, path dependenceis a fundamental concept when explaining change. However, this analysis shows how andwhen quality registers appeared as an answer to changes in institutional arrangements in Swedishpublic healthcare. Through three phases, cumulative processes have been visible and theprocesses have been followed by an improved and increased usage of quality registers andother quality systems. This analysis shows that institutional development can be pathdependentin relation to methods and means. Despite changing goals over time, quality registersas a policy tool have been path-dependent and stayed firm. Thus, it is important to see alsoorganisational methods as a development path that can be used to implement even new policyaims.
