    When the organization is a problem: An empirical study of social work with substance use problems in more or less NPM-influenced Swedish municipalities2023In: Nordic Social Work Research, ISSN 2156-857X, E-ISSN 2156-8588, Vol. 13, no 1, p. 36-49Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    New Public Management (NPM) has added new aspects to the conflict between political-bureaucratic steering and professional autonomy in the search for a substance use treatment system (SUT) that is economic and characterized by high quality, accessibility, and professional discretion. This article analyses if and how organizational aspects of NPM imply additional challenges for professionals and SUT. The experiences of 29 social workers, in different positions in the services and administration of SUT, in six municipalities with different degrees of NPM and post-NPM, form the empirical data. Many quality problems were common across municipalities: frequent unevaluated reforms, lack of resources for SUT, and cooperation issues. Several problems were especially pronounced in statutory social work. NPM added challenges. Competition with private providers was viewed as initially (in the 1990s) having improved treatment, but the present market was regarded as creating quality problems without savings. Cooperation between providers was a special quality challenge in NPM municipalities, and NPM added to treatment continuity challenges. While accessibility for resourceful clients was linked to NPM models, treatment for less resourced users was obstructed by NPM. Workplace climate and trust issues were more problematic in the most NPM-permeated municipalities. Professional discretion was difficult to link to local NPM degree. Increased standardization and documentation were often accepted as improving quality. While a system based on competition ideology appeared destructive for treatment quality, post-NPM reforms with cooperation between needs-assessment, treatment, and economic support, conformed better with professionals’ perceptions of good treatment.

    Stakeholders’ arguments for and against moving Swedish substance abuse treatment to the health care system: How a fat reform proposal became a thin government bill2014In: Nordic Studies on Alcohol and Drugs, ISSN 1458-6126, Vol. 31, no 1, p. 81-110Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND - Far-reaching changes in the Swedish substance abuse treatment system (SAT) were proposed by a state-commissioned inquiry in 2011. The proposal implied a break with the social tradition of SAT. It was suggested that the treatment responsibility should be transferred from the municipal social services to the regional-level health care system; and that compulsory treatment in its present form (assessed by/paid for by social services, run by the state) should be abolished and become incorporated into coercive psychiatric care provided by health care. A lively debate arose, and the vast majority of stakeholders sought to articulate their arguments. AIM - The study analysed the development of Swedish SAT by examining the policy process from reform proposal to government bill in 2013. METHOD - Content analysis was used to analyse written comments on the proposal submitted to the Ministry of Health and Social Affairs by close to 200 stakeholders. The goal was to empirically chart and examine the arguments for and against as well as advocates and opponents of the reform. With the government bill at hand, we retrospectively sorted out the winning arguments in the now highly contested SAT field and which actors were able to influence the process. CONCLUSIONS - The article discloses that the mixed response and rather critical voices in most groups, including social/medical professions and government bureaucracy, helped block the responsibility shifts, and that reformations of subsystems like SAT are difficult to carry out as freestanding projects within larger systems of social and health care.

    Att ta sig bortom New Public Management: en historisk-institutionell analys av fallet Sverige2022In: Förvaltning och rättssäkerhet i Norden: utveckling, utmaningar och framtidsutsikter. / [ed] Sebastian Godenhjelm; Eija Mäkinen; Matti Niemivuo, Helsingfors: Svenska litteratursällskapet i Finland (SLS), 2022, p. 227-250Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Under senare år har den New Public Management-orienterade förvaltningspolitik som under lång tid dominerat reformarbetet i svensk offentlig förvaltning kommit att kritiseras allt mer. Kritiken har föranlett den nuvarande röd-gröna regeringen att efterlysa nya styrmodeller ”som går bortom NPM”. Det har talats om en ”brytningstid”. Men trots att denna satsning har pågått sedan 2014 har alter­nativa idéer och synsätt till NPM haft svårt att göra sig gällande i praktiken. Pratet om nya styrformer och alternativa sätt att organisera förvaltningen har inte åtföljts av några beslut om konkreta åtgärder som tydligt bryter med NPM-paradigmet. I stället har det mesta förblivit vid det gamla, med ett fortsatt begränsat utrymmet för kritisk reflektion kring etablerade styrmodeller, djuplä­rande och nytänkande. Hur kommer det sig?

    I detta kapitel diskuteras denna fråga utifrån ett historisk-institutionellt perspektiv. Med Sverige som fall argumenteras det för att den iakttagna trögheten, och oförmågan att tänka nytt, i hög grad kan förklaras av det sätt på vilket förvaltningspolitiken har or­ganiserats, där olika NPM-inriktade idéer både har sprungit fram ur och genererat olika organisatoriska arrangemang i form av särskilda myndigheter, enheter, funktioner, regleringar och språkbruk som fungerat som starka idébärare för NPM. De olika arrangemangen har understött både marknadiseringen och företagiseringen av staten.

    Kapitlets huvudsakliga budskap är att NPM-idéerna är djupt inorganiserade i den svenska staten och att denna organisering ger de aktörer som arbetar med och förespråkar dessa idéer en stark maktposition. För att nya idéer om styrning och organisering ska kunna växa fram och genomföras på ett ändamålsenligt sätt krävs det en medveten och genomtänkt organisering från regeringens sida.

    'He Who Decides': Swedish Social Democratic Governements from a Presidentialisation Perspective2009In: Scandinavian Political Studies, ISSN 0080-6757, E-ISSN 1467-9477, Vol. 32, no 2, p. 143-170Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Using a presidentialisation perspective, this article investigates how the work of Swedish Social Democratic Governments has changed in recent decades. It examines whether the work of Government has become less collegial and more presidential, and also whether any such changes have taken place gradually or in the form of clear departures during recent years, which is in line with the presidentialisation thesis.

    The presidentialisation thesis gains only some support in the paper. The way the Swedish Government is composed and the way it works shows a considerable degree of inertia. However, some changes have occurred. These changes relate foremost to issues connected with the Government’s forms of working and less to issues connected to the way the Government is formed. The study also shows that some changes have occurred gradually while others have taken the form of departures. Thus, changes in the Government’s working forms have foremost occurred during the last decade. Regarding changes in forming the Government, the departures took place earlier. It is concluded that the changes can be explained both by short-term contingent factors, such as individual prime ministers’ leadership style, and more structural factors, especially the growing internationalisation and mediatisation of the state.

    Seconded National Experts as Part of Early Mover Strategies in the European Union: The Case of Sweden2016In: Journal of European Integration, ISSN 0703-6337, E-ISSN 1477-2280, Vol. 38, no 2, p. 133-147Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores in what ways and to what extent the Swedish state uses Swedish Seconded National Experts (SNE) as part of its early mover strategies. Early mover strategies are defined as policies and organizational arrangements aimed at ensuring that national preferences have an impact on the Commission’s agenda setting and proposals. The article draws on three organization perspectives – an instrumental, a cultural and a myth perspective – to increase the understanding of how states use SNEs as early mover tools. The article shows that Sweden’s early mover strategies linked to SNEs are poorly developed regarding both policies and organizational arrangements. It also shows that all three explanatory perspectives contribute to the understanding of this state of affairs.

    Abstract [en]

    In recent years, the governing model used in the Swedish public sector – Management by Results – has become a subject of debate. While the government has argued that it must be replaced with a new model that gives the professionals increased status and autonomy, others have argued that it must be maintained in order to put high demands on public employees and prevent them from getting too much power. The debate gives the impression that there are only two ways to govern a modern administration: either through output-oriented instrumental hierarchy, where superiors at various levels hold their subordinates in short leashes through detailed steering and control systems, or through professional norms, where the superiors leave the subordinates alone and put their trust in that they act professionally and in the interest of the government and the public, even “when no one is looking”. This article widens the perception of governing and argues that a dimming of Management by Results does not have to lead to a situation where the administration becomes disconnected from the outside world and is left to “run its own race”. Based on current research within the field of meta-governance, and by using empirical examples from the Swedish central government, this article shows that the government possesses – and often uses – various governing strategies and control instruments to ensure that the administration can retain a high degree of orientation and adaptability, even in situations where the government is unable or unwilling to express its wishes and preferences as precise and consistent as the established steering model requires of them.

    Organizing democracy: the construction of agency in practice2010Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This book adds an organizational perspective to the analysis of governance and democracy. It argues that a number of organizatiobal factors challange the notion of agency assumed by a governance model. The book criticizes the governance model for resting on the rational myth and the assumtion that democratic ideals can be translated to specific democratic values, which in turn can be adhered to by democratic agents. By adding an organizational perspective to th eanalysis of governance and democracy, th ebook proves that theories about organizing and the construction of agency can be used to explain how and why democratic values are attended to in governance structures.

    Discretion and Favoritism in Public Procurement2024In: Journal of the European Economic Association, ISSN 1542-4766, E-ISSN 1542-4774, Vol. 22, no 1, p. 117-160Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates the consequences of bureaucratic discretion in public procurement. I exploit a Hungarian policy reform, which allows a “high-discretion” procedure below a certain contract value. At the threshold, I document large discontinuities both in procurement outcomes and in the density of contract values, which indicates that buyers manipulate contract values to avoid auctions. I combine the reform and a structural model to find that discretion increases prices and results in the selection of less productive contractors. I also show that high discretion benefits firms with connections to the party of the central government. I use the structural model to document that public buyers are willing to sacrifice more contract value to increase their discretion if more connected firms are operating in the market. I also use the model to simulate the effects of counterfactual procurement thresholds on different procurement outcomes.

    Managing Administrative Reform through Language Work. Implementing Lean in Swedish Public Sector Organisations2015In: Scandinavian Journal of Public Administration, ISSN 2001-7405, E-ISSN 2001-7413, Vol. 19, no 2, p. 89-108Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper accounts for the early implementation of Lean in two Swedish public sector organisations justifying Lean as a remedy for the negative consequences of New Public Management (NPM). But is Lean radically different, or rather yet another NPM reform? We use a social constructivist approach and focus on the role of language in influencing employees’ minds and subjective perceptions, and thereby mobilising new patterns of governance. The concept of ‘language work’, comprising three organisational levels, is suggested for analysing the meaning and consequences of the Lean efforts studied. The analysis reveals that the first level of Lean language work largely mirrors typical NPM ideals, including entrepreneurship, empowerment and customer orientation. In contrast, there are more salient differences at the second level about labels used for organisational classifications having both empowering and disempowering effects on categorised people. At the third level of analysis targeting the day-to-day practice, we see a return of NPM performance measurement–oriented practices and their (often-unintended) consequences discussed in research on NPM reforms, although they surface in somewhat new ways, including communicative symbols and other linguistic expressions. The main contribution lies in the conceptualisation of language work widening the scope of the constitutive role of language to include the levels of political programmes and technologies of government as well as organisational classifications.

    The Parliament and the Budget: Enhancing Its Capacity for Oversight2009In: Bütçe sürecinde parlamentonun deĝişen rolü, Ankara, 2009Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Performance budgeting is sweeping the globe. What role can legislatures play as agencies of monitoring and oversight? Observers are none too optimistic. "There is very little direct evidence that performance information in budgets and annual reports is directly used by members of parliament in their oversight", concludes one recent comparative study. Most parliaments have limited amending competence in budgetary decisions and exercise scant control and monitoring over the execution of budgets. There seems to be general agreement that MPs pay little attention to the formal reporting on administrative performance. But there are several ways in which parliaments can get involved in decisions on public policy and public finance. Enhancing their contribution to boosting government performance requires attention to the analytical resource base as well as to parliamentary procedure.

    Shifts in the Australian public's opinions towards alcohol policies: 2004-20192023In: Drug and Alcohol Review, ISSN 0959-5236, E-ISSN 1465-3362, Vol. 42, no 7, p. 1785-1795Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction: After a period of stagnation, alcohol policy in Australia has received increased attention in the past decade, with Sydney's lockout laws and Queensland's restrictions on trading hours garnering media attention. This study will investigate any changing trends in support towards alcohol policy and identify any demographic-specific shifts.

    Methods: Respondents from the National Drug Strategy Household Survey (conducted every 3 years from 2004 to 2019) were asked to gauge their level of support for 16 alcohol policy items proposed to reduce the problems associated with excessive alcohol use. Mean levels of support for various policy options, as well as demographic predictors of support, were assessed.

    Results: After an increase from 2004 to 2013, support for more evidence-based policies on alcohol (e.g., restricting the availability of alcohol) has decreased since 2013. Support for policy items that focus less on the restriction of the availability of alcohol and more on education remained relatively stable in comparison. While demographic groups continue to vary in their extent of support, shifts appear to be occurring fairly uniformly across sex, age, states and drinking groups.

    Discussion and Conclusions: Support for public health-oriented alcohol policies has been decreasing since 2013. The introduction of high-profile policies and less of a media focus on alcohol may be contributing to decreases in support.

    Arbetsvillkoren i äldreomsorgen måste förbättras2008In: Socionomen, ISSN 0283-1929, no 3, p. 11-17Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Artikeln redovisar resultat från en postenkätstudie till all personal i äldreomsorgen i åtta svenska kommuner, här med särskilt fokus på arbetssituationen för omsorgstjänstemännen, dvs biståndshandläggare, enhetschefer, sjuksköterskor och centralt placerade tjänstemän. Studien visar att omsorgstjänstemännen anser sig ha ett mycket stimulerande och engagerande arbete, som uppskattas av de äldre och deras anhöriga, men att deras arbetssituation ofta är svår och problematisk. Många av dem arbetar hårt i en organisation där de inte delar värderingarna, där de inte kan påverka sin arbetssituation och där de inte känner sitt arbete uppskattat av arbetsledning och politiker. Känslan av otillräcklighet inför de äldres behov av hjälp liksom kroppslig och psykisk trötthet visade ett starkt hierarkiskt mönster. Ju närmare de äldre man befann sig i organisationen, desto tyngre upplevde man arbetssituationen.
