    Creative industries, spatiality and flexibility—the example of film production2007In: Norwegian Journal of Geography, Vol. 61, no 3, p. 111-121Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    At the beginning of the 1990s, film production in Sweden was heavily centralised in Stockholm. Today, film production in Sweden has decentralised to include three regional film production centres located far from the capital region. The article aims to understand this decentralised location pattern, focusing on the aspects of flexible film work and film workers. The implications of the regionalisation of film production in Sweden for film workers and for regions are explored. Labour and work practice flexibility create important conceptual lenses through which the investigation and analysis were developed. The major empirical source of data was a questionnaire survey of film workers. From the empirical data, different structures of the film industry in the main film regions are discussed. The results show that the geography of film workers diverges from that of film work, reflecting spatial mobility among film workers and willingness to be involved in projects some distance from their county of residence. Multiscalar relations in film work and film projects appear to be the organisational norm within film production. The results also show that it is difficult to generate sufficient income from film production, and most workers are dependent on incomes from sectors outside the film industry.

    Cities in globalisation2009In: Sociologisk Årbok, ISSN 0808-288x, no 1-2, p. 1-16Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses cities in globalisation through the notions of networks and relations. The article argues for a conceptual understanding of a city as a social entity and in contrast to the understanding of a city as a place or a territory. The focus is to discuss relations between globalisation and city dynamics. The research question is developed from an economic geography framework; however, the discussion transcends disciplinary boundaries, and work in sociology and economic sociology offers important contributions to the argument.

    There is a strong overlap between the development of the idea of the network society and relational thinking of societies. What has been coined as the ‘relational economic geography’ approach emphasises the importance of social and organisational relations and networks, involving interpersonal and interorganisational connections and networks. Proponents of the concept of relational space reject the notions of territorial integrity and bounded territorial regions. Instead, they utilise concepts such as porosity, permeability, unboundedness, space of flows and relational connectivity.

    The article also considers methods and data for empirical studies on cities in globalisation. The observation and construction of data on networks may be difficult. Typically, networks are not stable or physical entities to measure or envision, neither do they have stable boundaries. What may be observed are the components generating, developing and reproducing relations and flows. Jane Jacobs’ (1984) idea about the role of dynamic cities in expanding economic life put relations and connections in the centre, and the theory asserts that some cities are innovative, leading and dynamic while others are secondary and relatively static. This idea has been important in the task of developing an appropriate match between the concept of cities as networks and the methodology through which these are studied within the framework of the Globalization and World Cities Study Group and Network (GaWC). The different angles of analysis and which are developed and pursued in this research network, clearly illustrate that the single cities have different positions. The conceptual understanding stresses the unstable character and processes that will continuously involve changes in how globalising cities are positioned.

    Abstract [sv]

    Två företeelser har under senare tid genomsyrat den svenska samhällsomvandlingen: globaliseringen och den fortlöpande utvecklingen av tjänstesamhället. I centrum för båda dessa företeelser står förändringar i ekonomiska verksamheter; allt ifrån tillverkningsindustri till forskning och marknadsföring.

    Policy support and institutional capacity for innovative entrepreneurship in medical technology.2011In: Reser conference, Hamburg. Available through: http://www.reser.net/2011-RESER-Conference-papers, 2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper focuses on the relatively recent recognition that the health-care sector can be an important source of innovation, business development and economic growth. In the wake of this discursive turn in policy, local and national innovation systems and soft infrastructure have developed to support the establishment and growth of knowledge-intensive firms that support the healthcare sector, such as medical technology. This paper examines how policydriven support systems for medical technology firms have developed. In the case of medical technology, this support infrastructure should be analysed relative to its fundamental features of being knowledge intensive, needing to innovate in short business cycles, being highly specialized and having its market in a strictly regulated sector—that is, the health-care sector.

    Producer service firms in globalising cities: the example of advertising firms in Stockholm2009In: Service Industries Journal, ISSN 0264-2069, Vol. 29, no 4, p. 457-471Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Spaces of flows have become basic processes and elements in the development of space economies and cities. The objective in this study is to understand spaces of flows of advanced producer services. This article focuses on advertising firms in the geographical context of Sweden and Stockholm. The analysis considers advertising activities in the context of globalisation and post-modern economies. The empirical data for this article are derived from secondary sources, including statistics, firm directories, and business journals. The conclusions indicate multi-scalar relations of advertising agencies. Relationships with clients tend to be local or national. At the same time, there are international intra-organisational connections and flows. Advertising activities have consolidated under transnational organisations.

    Abstract [en]

    Globalisation, urbanisation and networks represent important fundamental processes in the recent and current restructuring of society. These three key words imply uneven spatial and geographical development of resources and human settlements that are deeply involved in the emergence and consolidation of world cities and global cities. In recent decades, the globalisation of cities has been studied intensively and global cities are defined in various ways

    Reconsidering the Geographical Flows of the Global Knowledge Economy: The Example of Indian ICT-Based Knowledge Flows to Sweden2011In: International Journal for Digital Society, ISSN 2040-2570, Vol. 2, no 2, p. 451-461Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the geographical flows of the global knowledge economy and their unstable and rapidly changing nature. We use the development of activities in ICT (information and communication technology) in India and its connections to Sweden to illustrate changes in international business. The article explores the ways in which transformations in geography and spatial relations, politics and management are causes and effects of rapid and profound transformations in the global economy. The transformations we illustrate provide reasons to reconsider the conventional idea of uneven power relations in the world, between the stronger “global North” and the weaker “global South”. Firms based in the global South and in India develop their organizations and capabilities to compete for market share worldwide, and on the same basis as firms based in the global North.

    Knowledge Dynamics in the Stockholm Region: A study of KIBS, ICT and Medtech2010Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This report discusses aspects of the transformation of the economy in the wake of thedevelopment of information and communication technology (ICT) using a case study ofStockholm. This study is conducted as a part of a Nordic research project titled ‘RegionalTrajectories to the Knowledge Economy—Nordic-European Comparisons’ (REKENE).REKENE involves seven regional teams from Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Iceland, witheach team made up of both researchers and practitioners.The objective of REKENE and the Stockholm case study is to identify activities and processesthat generate knowledge development and innovations. REKENE involves a conceptualframework, which particularly stresses the concepts of knowledge dynamics, of different typesof knowledge, gender aspects, multilocal networks and the processes of anchoring resources tothe region.The different regional teams in REKENE study different industrial sectors. For Stockholm, ourpoint of departure is knowledge-intensive business services (KIBS) with a particular focus oncomputer services/ICT expertise and medical technicians and technologists (medtech).The report describes the development of knowledge from the point of departure from a smallfirm engaged in medtech. This description illustrates how interactions between sectors andknowledge domains are distinctive for KIBS, wherein firms work closely with their clients andusually adopt the roles of co-creators and co-producers. Important developments are thengenerated through composite knowledge whereby policies may facilitate the integration of arange of competencies, skills and experiences in networks. Indeed, it is difficult to discern anyouter boundary delimiting the skills that are most relevant for the development of ICTapplications. Although the establishment of strong relationships among local actors in theStockholm region is an important resource for knowledge dynamics to be effective, widerinternational connections are needed for sustainable development.

    New geographies of work: a case study from Sweden2012In: Urbani Izziv, ISSN 0353-6483, E-ISSN 1855-8399, Vol. 23, no suppl. 1, p. S126-S134Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper describes and analyses the geography of work, i.e., the spatial patterns in where paid work is done. The geography of work may diverge from the geography of employment when paid work is done at the premises of client organizations, during commuting, on business trips, on external meetings, at home or at other places. The particular patterns in the geography of work depend on a number of factors, possibilities and constraints. The paper takes its point of departure from the debate about how structural economic changes resulting from evolving service industries and the development of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) entail new forms for the organization of paid work. Flexibility, reflexivity, flows and places are key concepts. The paper presents a case study from Stockholm that takes a workplace perspective and looks at knowledge-intensive work in a public sector organization. The empirical study analyses data from interviews, time diaries and a questionnaire. We analyse how the geography of work is the result of negotiations between different parties and in different arenas, and how this spatial pattern is the result of the character of work tasks and accessibility of ICT support. The discussion illustrates a complex picture of the coexistence of spatial fix and spatial flexibility, and how this may cause tensions but also convenient solutions for organizing and conducting paid work.
