    Urban utveckling och interaktion2017Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    I Ymer 2017 undersöker geografer och antropologer staden som fenomen genom att lyfta fram de interaktioner och processer som leder till att städer och samhällen förändras. Analyserna grundar sig i studier av städer i Sverige, Ukraina, USA, Bolivia och Chile och representerar en del av det stora och mångfasetterade urbana forskningsfältet. Sammantaget ger kapitlen en fördjupad förståelse för den grundläggande interaktionen mellan stad, människa och miljö som uppstår i mötet mellan en mängd olika intressen och aktörer, från privata företag, motståndsrörelser, diasporagrupper till lokala föreningsinitiativ och gentrifieringsaktörer samt inte minst inom staden själv och dess relationer med omvärlden.

    Abstract [en]

    This introductory article identifies and discuss five key legacy aspects of post-Communism for the urban geography of Eastern and Central Europe. These are concerned with (1) central planning, (2) land allocation, (3) the second economy, (4) defence considerations, and (5) the implications of the ideological leadership of the communist parties. The discussion is based on the existing literature and on the five articles in this theme issue. The introduction ends with proposing a general evolutionary model for suburbanisation, and with some suggestions for further research within the field of post-Communist urban geography.

    Artists and creative city policy: Resistence, the mundane and engagement in Stockholm, Sweden2017In: City, Culture and Society, ISSN 1877-9166, E-ISSN 1877-9174, Vol. 8, p. 21-26Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Much of the literature around notions of the ’creative class’ and the ‘creative city’ has placed artists as a central, typical creative group. However, that literature has often placed artists in a conceptual dichotomy - either they are seen as uncritical champions of creative city policy (because it boosts their profile and markets) or they are placed in radical opposition to it. This paper explores the attitudes of a sample of artists in Stockholm, Sweden to open this dichotomy up to a more nuanced critique. The analysis considers the diversity of views, attitudes and perceptions of these artists towards creative city policy. While opposition and resistance to the application of creative city policy can certainly be found, the paper seeks to move beyond this to examine how the lack of accord between creative producers and policy-makers can be the outcome of more mundane, everyday practices. In addition, artists join together in specific projects and loose, ephemeral networks to address the issues surrounding the implementation of creative city policy in ways which oppose it but also seek alternatives through engaging planners and the public. Overall the paper calls for an understanding of artists which goes beyond the enthusiast/opponent dichotomy towards developing an understanding of the diverse range of artist responses and engagement with creative city policy.

    Artists as planners? Identifying five conceptual spaces for interactive urban development2017In: The Impact of Artists on Contemporary Urban Development in Europe / [ed] Monika Murzyn-Kupisz, Jarosław Działek, Springer, 2017, p. 299-314Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    While artists are often seen as key actors in contemporary urban development, particularly linked with the increased use of culture and creativity in urban development policy, to date they have mainly been considered in only a few limited roles. This chapter explores how artists are engaging with policy-makers and planners in attempts to produce ‘new conceptual spaces’ (Gibson and Klocker 2005) in which urban policy and planning practice becomes a form of knowledge and policy co-production. The chapter explores the dynamics of this interaction to understand its different forms, with a particular focus on how artists inform or affect urban planning imagination. Through the analysis of the state of the art in this field and of a number of projects where artists, policy-makers and planners have interacted in urban development projects we identify and discuss five types of new conceptual spaces for artist-planning interactions. Three of these consider interactions initiated by the formal urban governance structures, whereas two are artist initiated. Taken together these five types represent empirically based alternatives to neo-liberalizing agendas as to how art and artists may realize a more varied role in co-creating the urban future.

    Conceptual export and theory mobilities: exploring the reception and development of the “creative city thesis” in the post-socialist urban realm2016In: Eurasian geography and economics, ISSN 1538-7216, E-ISSN 1938-2863, Vol. 57, no 4-5, p. 588-606Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses the limited contribution of scholarship from within/on the post-socialist urban arena to global urban studies, a phenomenon attributed to the influence of a hegemonic Anglo-American academic complex. We seek to present a more nuanced account by considering scholarship on the “creative city” in a post-socialist context. A numerical analysis of English language publications confirms the lack of impact of scholarship from/on post-socialist areas, though we do identify literature which may be “theory exporting” and emphasize the temporal dimension of the development of scholarship. We then consider the interaction of three global mobilities to present a more nuanced account of this pattern – the “creative city” thesis as globally mobile urban policy, the neoliberalization of universities as a globally mobile restructuring of the context in which these inequalities in knowledge-production are produced, and urban studies theorizing itself as a set of globally mobile concepts and practices. We therefore explore the dynamic interaction of a particular urban phenomenon (“creative city” policy) with academic knowledge production. Adopting this perspective allows us to emphasize other factors such as path dependencies within post-socialist areas and to give due emphasis to agency within the region and how these interact with global processes of neoliberalizing academia.

    Culture and creativity in actually existing urban policy2011Other (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In the last decade culture and creativity have become widely adopted as important aspects of urban development strategies. Cities try to make use of their cultural capital in the highly competitive urban system of late capitalism, in order to make themselves attractive for capital investment, skilled labour, tourists and media attention. There is a great deal of debate of these issues and the poster account for the authours' research and projects on these these issues.

    Getting Creative with the ‘Creative City’?: Towards New Perspectives on Creativity in Urban Policy2013In: International Journal of Urban and Regional Research, ISSN 0309-1317, E-ISSN 1468-2427, Vol. 37, no 5, p. 1799-1815Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores new avenues for academic research on the ‘creative city’. Creativity offers opportunities for urban development and the personal development of urban inhabitants, but its adoption in urban policy is frequently criticized for being welded to economic imperatives and a neoliberal agenda. Urban policymakers worldwide continue to adopt narrow conceptualizations of ‘creativity’ while largely ignoring extensive academic criticism of the concept, suggesting that academic concerns with creativity in urban policy need to be reoriented more effectively. This article develops four key theoretical points on the ‘creative city’ and creative urban policy. It argues that the focus of enquiry should shift towards a more in-depth understanding of how ‘creativity’ is constructed, contested and performed in specific urban contexts, understanding the ‘creative policy gap’ between policymakers and those engaged in all kinds of creative practice, and developing forms of artistic intervention to attempt to make creative policymaking more inclusive and ‘creative’. These points are developed through a critique of the literature and some illustrative examples of people in creative occupations interacting with urban planners and policymakers in creative interventions.

    The Migration Dynamics of the "Creative Class": Evidence from a Study of Artists in Stockholm, Sweden2013In: Annals of the Association of American Geographers, ISSN 0004-5608, E-ISSN 1467-8306, Vol. 103, no 1, p. 195-210Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article focuses on a neglected issue in debates about the creative city, the migration dynamics of the so-called creative class. The work of Richard Florida on the importance of the creative class for urban development continues to influence urban policymakers worldwide, despite the lack of empirical evidence supporting the key assumptions made about the migration dynamics of those in apparently creative occupations. This article evaluates the usefulness of adopting the approach of analyzing the migration dynamics of one creative occupation, artists. We consider the migration experiences of a group of artists who have moved to Stockholm, Sweden, exploring their mobility and their motivations for moving, the factors influencing their choice of location, and the influence of their occupational dynamics on their mobility. The analysis advances earlier studies of creative migration by considering the impact on their mobility of life-cycle effects and their reliance on professional networks and queries the purported link between openness and tolerance in cities with low entry barriers for those in creative occupations.

    Social Sustainability Requires Social Sustainability Procedural Prerequisites for Reaching Substantive Goals2015In: Nature and Culture, ISSN 1558-6073, E-ISSN 1558-5468, Vol. 10, no 2, p. 131-156Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The synergies and trade-offs between the various dimensions of sustainable development are attracting a rising scholarly attention. Departing from the scholarly debate, this article focuses on internal relationships within social sustainability. Our key claim is that it is difficult to strengthen substantive social sustainability goals unless there are key elements of social sustainability contained in the very procedures intended to work toward sustainability. Our analysis, informed by an organizing perspective, is based on a set of case studies on multi-stakeholder transnational sustainability projects (sustainability standards). This article explores six challenges related to the achievement of such procedures that can facilitate substantive social sustainability. Three of these concern the formulation of standards and policies, and three the implementation of standards and policies. To achieve substantive social sustainability procedures must be set in motion with abilities to take hold of people's concerns, frames, resources, as well as existing relevant institutions and infrastructures.

    Resilience and development: mobilizing for transformation2016In: Ecology & society, ISSN 1708-3087, E-ISSN 1708-3087, Vol. 21, no 3, article id 40Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In 2014, the Third International Conference on the resilience of social-ecological systems chose the theme resilience and development: mobilizing for transformation. The conference aimed specifically at fostering an encounter between the experiences and thinking focused on the issue of resilience through a social and ecological system perspective, and the experiences focused on the issue of resilience through a development perspective. In this perspectives piece, we reflect on the outcomes of the meeting and document the differences and similarities between the two perspectives as discussed during the conference, and identify bridging questions designed to guide future interactions. After the conference, we read the documents (abstracts, PowerPoints) that were prepared and left in the conference database by the participants (about 600 contributions), and searched the web for associated items, such as videos, blogs, and tweets from the conference participants. All of these documents were assessed through one lens: what do they say about resilience and development? Once the perspectives were established, we examined different themes that were significantly addressed during the conference. Our analysis paves the way for new collective developments on a set of issues: (1) Who declares/assign/cares for the resilience of what, of whom? (2) What are the models of transformations and how do they combine the respective role of agency and structure? (3) What are the combinations of measurement and assessment processes? (4) At what scale should resilience be studied? Social transformations and scientific approaches are coconstructed. For the last decades, development has been conceived as a modernization process supported by scientific rationality and technical expertise. The definition of a new perspective on development goes with a negotiation on a new scientific approach. Resilience is presently at the center of this negotiation on a new science for development.

    Visionen att minska biltrafiken: En fallstudie om trafiksituationen i ett växande Solna2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie syftar till att undersöka hur Solna stad arbetar för att främja de hållbara och miljövänligare transportalternativen och minska antalet bilar som dagligen rullar på kommunens vägar. Vidare har studien syftat till att synliggöra Solnas utmaningar och möjligheter gällande trafikplanering. Även målkonflikter i planeringen och vilka mål som prioriteras diskuteras.

     

    Studien är av kvalitativ karaktär och bygger på litteraturstudier av vetenskapliga artiklar, rapporter, kurslitteratur samt sex intervjuer med personer som alla är insatta i trafikfrågor och samhällsplanering i Solna.

     

    Resultatet visar på att arbetet kring hållbara transporter i kommunen är komplext och rymmer en rad olika tolkningar i hur arbetet bör bedrivas för att uppnå önskvärda resultat. Solna har en stark önskan om att minska vägtrafiken och arbetar aktivt med att förbättra för och utveckla åtgärder som främjar transporter med gång-, cykel- och kollektivtrafik. Studien visar på att målet om fler hållbara transporter försvåras då Solna själva inte har makten över alla vägar och således är beroende av andra aktörer i arbetet mot att nå minskad bilanvändning i kommunen. Solnas geografiska läge och goda tillgång till kollektivtrafik möjliggör dock att en större övergång från resor som görs med bil ersätts av resor med kollektivtrafiken. Att lösa den akuta trafiksituationen som råder i dagsläget är av stor vikt för att kommunen ska nå en hållbar utveckling.

    Effektivitet eller integritet?: En studie om regeringens förhållning till integritet i den digitaliserade staden2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    2016 introducerade Schwab visionen om den fjärde industriella revolutionen som syftar på att världen befinner sig i en ny teknisk revolution. En fråga av speciellt stor vikt i detta nya samhälle är hur integritet ska behandlas i planeringen av ett allt mer digitaliserat samhälle. Denna uppsats syftar till att kartlägga digitaliseringspolitiken som har funnits i Sverige från 1990-talet till idag genom utförande av kvalitativa innehållsanalyser på statliga dokument, detta för att kunna lokalisera hur Sveriges regering har bemött och bemöter integritet inom digitaliseringspolitiken. För att få svar på detta ämnar uppsatsen att problematisera hur synen på integritet har sett ut och ser ut genom att fokusera på vilka visioner, problemlösningar och tillvägagångssätt som beskrivs kopplat till integritet i valda dokument. Ellul (1964) anser att vi lever i vad han benämner det teknologiska samhället, i det samhället går absolut effektivitet av tekniken före allt annat. Resultatet visar på att integritet har haft en betydande roll från starten av regeringens IT-satsningar 1994 till dagens satsningar. Regeringen fortsätter likväl att genomföra satsningar som gör att befolkningen måste dela med sig av information om sig själva.

    Jämställd samhällsplanering: en fallstudie över Mora kommun2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen analyserar frågor om hur jämställdhet beskrivs inom samhällsplaneringen i Mora kommun, av planerare samt av offentliga dokument. Forskningsfrågorna fokuserar på hur jämställd samhällsplanering beskrivs, den upplevda jämställdhetsintegreringen och vad planerarna uppfattar för hinder och möjligheter för fortsatt arbete med jämställdhet inom planeringen i kommunen. Undersökningen har genomförts med kvalitativa djupintervjuer med planerare som arbetar på kommunen samt textanalys av offentliga dokument som kommunen och landstinget publicerat. Undersökningens teoretiska vinkling grundar sig i synsätt inom feministisk geografi, det vill säga att undersökningen har i åtanke att analysera de bakomliggande strukturerna som kan finnas i kommunorganisationen och i samhällsplaneringen.

     

    För att analysera resultaten kring upplevelserna av begreppet jämställd samhällsplanering har främst Larsson & Jalakas (2014) rapport “Jämställdhet nästa! Samhällsplanering ur ett genusperspektiv” använts. Vid analysering av jämställdhetsintegreringen i kommunen har begreppsdefinitioner och forskning från Lundkvist & Westbergs (2012) vetenskapliga papper “Doing Gender in a Local and Regional Context: An Innovative Process of Mainstreaming Gender Equality”. Larsson & Jalakas (2014) använts, texten menar att grunden för att utveckla jämställd samhällsplanering är att vara medveten om de strukturella skillnader som finns i samhället.

     

    De resultat som uppsatsen kan tolka är att planerarna främst kopplar jämställd samhällsplanering till områdena trygghet och säkerhet, trafik och transport samt till kommunorganisationens könsfördelning. I den fördjupade översiktsplanen beskrivs endast området trygghet och säkerhet ur ett jämställdhetsperspektiv även om flera paralleller till trafik och transport kan dras till jämställd planering. Respondenterna skiljer sig åt i frågan om hur jämställdhetsintegrationen fungerar. Överlag så visar resultaten att planerarna anser att jämställdhet är en del som naturligt ingår i alla delar av arbetet. Planerarna ser dock olika möjligheter och problem för den fortsatta utvecklingen. Några resultat pekar på att kommunen inte anser sig ha några större problem kring jämställdhet, medan andra menar att det finns problem och mer behöver göras för att uppnå en god jämställd planering. De strukturella skillnaderna är något som respondenterna visar sig vara begränsat medvetna om, och det är inte heller något som går att utläsa i den fördjupade översiktsplanen.

    Couples' Education and Regional Mobility - the Importance of Occupation, Income and Gender2013In: Population, Space and Place, ISSN 1544-8444, E-ISSN 1544-8452, Vol. 19, no 5, p. 522-536Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    People with high education are more geographically mobile than people with lower education. Further, highly educated men are more mobile than highly educated women, and the man's education affects couples' migration propensities more than the woman's. This study examines whether the reasons for the higher migration propensities among highly educated people are the occupational characteristics and income commonly associated with high education. Further, the study examines whether the reason for the asymmetric effect of men's education relative to women's is that these occupational characteristics and income are unevenly distributed between men and women with similar educational levels. I studied dual-earner couples, with common children, residing in Sweden in 1997-2006. Results from logistic regressions indicate that both men's and women's education are positively related to couples' migration propensities, and that men's education has a larger impact on migration than women's, before adjusting for income and occupational characteristics. A substantial portion of the increased risk of migration among highly educated people can be attributed to income and occupational characteristics. Also, to a large extent, the differential effects of men's and women's education can be explained by the different types of occupations held by men and women within the same educational level, as well as by gender differences in monetary returns from education. When adjusting for these differences, only very minor gender differences in the effect of education remain. Despite theories on gender ideology, which implies men's attributes would dominate migration decisions, occupational characteristics have similar effects for men and women.

    Who Moves to Whom?: Gender Differences in the Distance  Moved to a Shared Residence2013Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Although family migration is a well examined topic, the migration that takes place at the start of co-residence of couples is so far hardly studied. This study examines gender differences in who moves to whom and who moves the longer distance when couples start a co-residential union. Analyses are performed based on Swedish register data, 1991-2008, including detailed longitudinal information on the residence of all couples in Sweden who married or had a child as cohabitants in 2008. The study reveals that even after adjusting for gender differences in age, local-, family-, and labor market ties, education, occupation, and economic bargaining power, it is more common for the woman to move to the man than vice versa, and the woman is on average moving longer distances than the man. Gender differences are especially pronounced when partners live far apart prior to union formation. Among these couples the woman on average moves 40 kilometers longer than the man. The proposed intervening factors explain half of this excess distance. Men’s likelihood to move and their distance moved is more affected by labor market ties than women’s, indicating that traditional gender ideologies matter for understanding migration patterns at the start of co-residence.

    Who Moves to Whom? Gender Differences in the Distance Moved to a Shared Residence2019In: European Journal of Population, ISSN 0168-6577, E-ISSN 1572-9885, Vol. 35, no 3, p. 435-458Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Although the migration of couples and families is well examined, the migration that occurs at the start of co-residence has only been minimally studied. This study examines (1) whether women move more often and move over longer distances at the start of co-residence and (2) whether gender differences (if any) stem from compositional differences between women and men, such as gender differences in ties, or if they are the consequence of the within-couple distribution of bargaining power. The analyses are performed on Swedish population register data from 1991 to 2008, including longitudinal information on the residence of all couples who either married or had a child as cohabitants in 2008, backtracking them to the year of union formation. The results indicate that women are more prone to move for the sake of their male partner in the process of union formation than vice versa. If partners lived in close proximity prior to co-residence, the woman’s increased likelihood of moving and longer distance moved is nearly completely explained by power imbalances in the couple. Gender differences in ties only have minor importance in explaining gender differences in these types of migration patterns. If partners lived far apart prior to co-residence, gender differences are particularly pronounced. These differences remain after adjusting for the two partners’ relative resources. We contribute to the family migration literature by suggesting that women’s higher propensity to move and their longer distance moved are indications that even couples’ decisions at the start of co-residence are made in favour of the man’s career.

    Traditionens makt i Norrköping och på Åland: Jämförande analys av strukturella förutsättningars inverkan på ungas inträde till arbetsmarknaden på Åland och i Norrköping 2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Ungas situation på arbetsmarknaden förändras jämsides med samhället. De senaste åren har arbetslöshet bland ungdomar diskuterats i relation till finanskrisen och LAS- lagen i Sverige. I det föreliggande arbetet undersöks vilken inverkan olika strukturer har på ungdomsarbetslöshet i Norrköping och på Åland. Strukturomvandlingar, näringsliv, yrkesutbildningar och flyttrörelse har varit strukturella faktorer som analyserats genom att jämföra statistik rörande de båda platserna. Undersökningens hypotes är att ungdomar i Norrköping och på Åland är påverkade av tradition i sitt beslut att stanna eller flytta från hemorten. Tillsammans med platsernas historiska bundenhet skapar dessa beslut olika strukturella förutsättningar för ungdomar som söker arbete. Syftet har varit att försöka utreda om det finns tydliga strukturer som har en positiv inverkan på ungas inträde till arbetsmarknaden. Resultatet visade att det är en sammanvävning av flera strukturer som skapar situationen på arbetsmarknaden för ungdomar, samt att tillväxt inom näringsgrenar unga arbetar inom inte automatiskt leder till lägre ungdomsarbetslöshet.

    Järvalyftet – Om brukarmedverkan vid renoveringar av bostadsområden2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med uppsatsen är att med hjälp av Stockholms stads renoveringsprojekt Järvalyftet som fallstudie söka skapa förståelse för hur nyckelaktörer vid renoveringar av bostadsområden ser på och använder sig av brukarmedverkan. För att nå denna förståelse ämnar jag att besvara följande frågeställningar: Hur uppnås ett aktivt deltagande hos de boende? På vilka teorier eller erfarenheter grundar sig projektörernas syn på brukarmedverkan? Vilka effekter förväntar sig de ansvariga att ett deltagande från de boende ger? Mitt empiriska material utgörs av en fallstudie av renoveringsprojektet Järvalyftet inom Stockholms kommun. För att granska detta har intervjuer med aktörer med inflytande över processen gjorts och exempel från tidigare brukarinflytandeprojekt använts. För att analysera materialet använder jag mig av Jürgen Habermas teorier om kommunikativt handlande och Abdul Khakees utvärderingsmodell av kommunikativa processer. Resultatet blir en djupgående diskussion kring hur aktörernas syn på brukarinflytande, kommunikation med de boende och handlande påverkar utfallet av en renoveringsprocess.

    Rumslig rättvisa i lokalsamhället - segregation och integrationsarbete som hemligheten bakom: En fallstudie om integrationsarbete av nyanlända och hantering av policy-mobilities i en kommun2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med kandidatuppsatsen är att söka förståelse för hur Sollentuna kommun motverkar segregation genom integrationsarbetet av nyanlända flyktingar utifrån begreppet rumslig rättvisa, samt hur ansvaret på integrationsområdet är fördelat utifrån relationen mellan staten och kommunen. Denna förståelse uppnås med hjälp av besvarande på följande frågeställningar: Hur organiseras ett integrationsarbete i samhällsplanering för nyanlända i Sollentuna kommun? Hur förhåller sig kommunen till statens delegering av ansvar angående ett integrationsarbete? Uppsatsen är en fallstudie som är baserad på intervjuer och en kvalitativ innehållsanalys av två policy-dokument. Materialet har sedan analyserats utifrån studiens två teoretiska ingångar, Madanipours teori social exclusion and space och teorin policy-mobilities. Huvudsakliga resultat är att kommunala aktörer arbetar på integrationsarbetet men att samverkan mellan dessa är idag begränsad som påverkar den rumsliga rättvisan. Den informella kontakten mellan kommunens aktörer har visat sig vara betydelsefull då den har underlättat integrationsarbetet. Samt att det råder en horisontell relation angående påverkan av policies som rör sig mellan den nationella och den kommunala nivån.

    Brazil and Latin America: Between the Separation and Integration Paths2017Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Brazil and Latin America: Between the Separation and Integration Paths challenges the “separatist” bias in the vision of Brazilian relations with its Latin American neighbors. By exploring the parallel existence of a path of integration, the focus of this study is on those forces which have intended to forge different forms of alignment, integration, and, sometimes, rightward union between Brazil and different Latin American countries. The authors analyze the ideas and projects inherent in the mindset of elites even before independence. They show that the path of integration has been more influential than is generally known. Ultimately, this book demonstrates the complexity around policy-making, debates on foreign policy, and the history of shaping the Brazilian self.

    EU-migranter i den svenska debatten: En kritisk diskursanalys2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med uppsatsen är att analysera och klargöra hur samtalet kring rätten för EU-medborgare att tigga på offentliga platser förs i svenska politiska texter, samt vilka diskurser som är dominerande i debatten. Forskning om hemlösa och tiggande finns i stor mängd, men i en svensk kontext är forskningen mindre omfattande, i synnerhet vad gäller antiziganism och hur romska EU-medborgare representeras i den svenska tiggeridebatten, samt vilka diskurser som styr samtalet. Det teoretiska ramverket baseras på kritisk urbanteori tillsammans med rörelsen Right to the city samt den kritiska diskursanalysens teoretiska del. Materialet består av fyra politiska texter som är skrivna av antingen beslutsfattare eller personer som vill föra fram åsikter. Faircloughs kritiska diskursanalys ligger till grund för det metodologiska arbetet. Resultatet framhåller två motdiskurser; den förefallande dominerande diskursen som förespråkar ett restriktivt förhållande till tiggeri med krav på större social kontroll och en diskurs som förordar en tillåtande syn på tiggeri som en del av social rättvisa. EU-migranten porträtteras å ena sidan som ett hot mot ordningen och ett offer för antiziganism å andra sidan. Uppsatsen har påvisat att de ovan nämnda sociala praktikerna bidrar till konstituerandet av samhället och staden, och man måste därför revidera hur de diskursiva praktikerna formas för att vara tillgängliga för människor oavsett social, kulturell eller ekonomisk status.

    An Analysis of Consumer Incentives in Support of Electric Vehicle Uptake: An Australian Case Study2019In: World Electric Vehicle Journal, ISSN 2032-6653, E-ISSN 2032-6653, Vol. 10, no 1, article id 11Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Transitioning from internal combustion engine vehicles (ICEVs) to innovative technologies, including electric vehicles (EVs), can be a crucial pathway to reducing Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and other negative externalities arising from fossil-fueled cars used for personal transport. Government action to correct insufficient market incentives has been essential in countries working to enhance EV acceptance; however, to date in Australia, there has been little government support to enact EV uptake. This paper identifies barriers and incentives to EV adoption in Australia through a survey of pro-environmental motorists, including an experimental component to test information provision influences on attitude change. Results evidence that wide ranging factors influence vehicle choice including EVs. Purchase barriers are focused on lack of a comprehensive recharge network and high EV purchase price. Factors encouraging fully EV uptake showed affordable price (56%) increased vehicle range (26%) and an adequate recharge network (28%) were mentioned most often; only 13% specifically indicated environmental regard as influential. Information provided about EVs increased the likelihood of positive attitudes towards EV purchase and decreased uncertainty about the technology. Recommendations arising from this research could be considered by laggard countries that, like Australia, have yet to take significant action to encourage transition to EVs.

    Re-conceptualizing the Anthropocene: A call for collaboration2016In: Global Environmental Change, ISSN 0959-3780, E-ISSN 1872-9495, Vol. 39, p. 318-327Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since it was first proposed in 2000, the concept of the Anthropocene has evolved in breadth and diversely. The concept encapsulates the new and unprecedented planetary-scale changes resulting from societal transformations and has brought to the fore the social drivers of global change. The concept has revealed tensions between generalized interpretations of humanity's contribution to global change, and interpretations that are historically, politically and culturally situated. It motivates deep ethical questions about the politics and economics of global change, including diverse interpretations of past causes and future possibilities. As such, more than other concepts, the Anthropocene concept has brought front-and center epistemological divides between and within the natural and social sciences, and the humanities. It has also brought new opportunities for collaboration. Here we explore the potential and challenges of the concept to encourage integrative understandings of global change and sustainability. Based on bibliometric analysis and literature review, we discuss the now wide acceptance of the term, its interpretive flexibility, the emerging narratives as well as the debates the concept has inspired. We argue that without truly collaborative and integrative research, many of the critical exchanges around the concept are likely to perpetuate fragmented research agendas and to reinforce disciplinary boundaries. This means appreciating the strengths and limitations of different knowledge domains, approaches and perspectives, with the concept of the Anthropocene serving as a bridge, which we encourage researchers and others to cross. This calls for institutional arrangements that facilitate collaborative research, training, and action, yet also depends on more robust and sustained funding for such activities. To illustrate, we briefly discuss three overarching global change problems where novel types of collaborative research could make a difference: (1) Emergent properties of socioecological systems; (2) Urbanization and resource nexus; and (3) Systemic risks and tipping points. Creative tensions around the Anthropocene concept can help the research community to move toward new conceptual syntheses and integrative action-oriented approaches that are needed to producing useful knowledge commensurable with the challenges of global change and sustainability.

    Consuming Canada: How fashion firms leverage the landscape to create and communicate brand identities, distinction and values2018In: Geoforum, ISSN 0016-7185, E-ISSN 1872-9398, Vol. 90, p. 108-118Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the increasingly global and competitive fashion industry, firms are adopting a variety of strategies to generate value and brand loyalty. While some emphasise the quality of material elements such as inputs, local production and design, others focus on immaterial aspects such symbolic value and exclusivity. In recent years, place-branding has become an important way to create connections between people, places, and products. Yet, the processes behind this type of branding remain poorly understood. In particular, limited attention has been paid to the ways in which landscapes – in all their forms – are being incorporated into place-branding practices. Drawing on 87 interviews, participant observation and an innovative analysis of Instagram accounts, this paper examines how a range of Canadian fashion firms leverage the landscape to create and communicate brand identities, distinction and values. It demonstrates how firms of different sizes and scales construct, harness, or reimagine landscapes and/or popular stereotypes to connect with Canadian identities and consumers. It also highlights how landscape-centric branding can be combined with broader value creation strategies such as local production. In so doing, this paper brings together the economic geography literature on place branding and the cultural geography literature on landscape and identity, and makes a methodological contribution to nascent examinations of social media and visual data sources in geography.

    The locational choices and interregional mobilities of creative entrepreneurs within Canada’s fashion system2019In: Regional studies, ISSN 0034-3404, E-ISSN 1360-0591, Vol. 53, no 4, p. 517-527Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Although creative industries and creative talent have traditionally clustered in established global centres such as London and New York, new forms of independent production, digital technologies and mobilities are reshaping this landscape. Drawing on 87 interviews and participant observation, this paper considers whether independent fashion designers in Canada still need to locate in the established centres to realize their ambitions. It explores how these entrepreneurs choose a ‘home base’ for their operations and demonstrates how they mobilize three forms of mobility (temporary, mediated, virtual) to access opportunities and resources within Canada’s fashion system.

    What motivates millennials? How intersectionality shapes the working lives of female entrepreneurs in Canada’s fashion industry2019In: Gender, Place and Culture: A Journal of Feminist Geography, ISSN 0966-369X, E-ISSN 1360-0524, Vol. 26, no 4, p. 510-532Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The contemporary fashion industry is based on a set of ‘gendered skills and attributes.’ Women numerically domin- ate fashion schools and the labour force of fashion firms, and also start and run the majority of independent fashion brands. Angela McRobbie and others have highlighted the importance of considering the gendered dynamics of fash- ion-related work. Yet, as the industry continues to evolve in the wake of global integration, the digital transition and intensifying competition, there is an ongoing need for research. Using an intersectional approach, this paper provides a novel case study of young ‘Millennial’ female independent fashion designers who operate within the emerging and under-explored Canadian fashion industry. Drawing on 87 interviews and participant observation, the paper demonstrates how entrepreneurial motivations, path- ways, practices and experiences are shaped by individual characteristics, such as gender, age, lifecycle and class. Particular attention is paid to the challenges and tensions associated with the D.I.Y. (do it yourself) model and how forms of work, including aesthetic labour, are performed and experienced in virtual spaces such as social media plat- forms. In so doing, the paper contributes to nascent research on Millennials and nuances our understanding of the gendered nature of creative labour. Crucially, the paper also moves beyond typical masculinist conceptualisations of entrepreneurship, which focus on high-growth and high- technology businesses, to highlight the legitimacy, preva- lence and importance of alternative motivations, networks, identities and business practices within contemporary markets and creative industries.

    Evolution versus entrenchment: Debating the impact of digitization, democratization and diffusion in the global fashion industry2018In: International Journal of Fashion Studies, ISSN 2051-7106, Vol. 5, no 2, p. 365-372Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the report The State of Fashion 2017, written by Business of Fashion and the McKinsey Institute (2016), industry executives used three words to describe the current state of the fashion industry: uncertain, changing and challenging. Indeed, the fashion industry is undergoing dramatic transformations, from digitization and the rise of ‘see now, buy now’ fashions, to brands redefining the function and timing of fashion weeks, and increasing levels of global integration and competition (Crewe 2017). As such, the fashion industry has been recognized as a valuable lens through which to explore significant and ongoing changes to the production, curation and consumption of goods, services, and experiences (Brydges et al. 2014; Brydges 2017; D’Ovidio 2015; Hracs et al. 2013; Lavanga 2018; McRobbie 2016; Pratt et al. 2012).Drawing inspiration from this stream of scholarship, we organized four sessions titled Trending Now: The Changing Geographies of Fashion in the Digital Age at the Royal Geographical Society and Institute of British Geographers (RGS-IBG) conference in London, 30 August – 1 September 2017. In these sessions, researchers and practitioners from a wide range of locations and disciplines – including fashion studies, media studies, cultural economics, business and geography – came together to share research related to the structures, labour dynamics, spaces, value propositions and practices of the contemporary fashion industry.While a range of issues were discussed, the sessions were connected by an overarching theme. Namely, the extent to which power in the fashion industry is expanding or consolidating. While there is a prominent discourse that states that structures, systems and spaces within the global fashion industry have been (and will continue to be) disrupted by new actors, technologies, practices and cities, we collectively questioned whether the fashion industry has really entered an era of democratization, or if established power structures remain entrenched. Through empirical case studies from a variety of geographic contexts – from India to Italy – about different actors and activities within the industry, each presentation contributed new evidence and perspectives to this debate. The discussion below distils some of the key themes that emerged.

    Den svårfångade hållbarhetsaspekten. En analys av den diskursiva konstruktionen av social hållbarhet i Umeå kommun.2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med uppsatsen är att analysera vilken betydelse som tillskrivs social hållbarhet samt vilka strategier för att förverkliga det som kommer till uttryck inom samhällsplaneringen i Umeå kommun. Analysen görs utifrån Ernesto Laclau och Chantal Mouffes diskursteori. Uppsatsen har formen av en fallstudie och det material som analyseras utgörs av intervjuer med politiker och planerare samt av fördjupade översiktsplaner. Resultatet visar att ett antal centrala begrepp kopplas till social hållbarhet och ger det betydelse samtidigt som de visar på strategier för att förverkliga det. Det råder samstämmighet bland politiker och planerare gällande hur begreppet konstrueras men dess innebörd är trots det vag. Detta tolkas utifrån diskursteori och tidigare forskning som uttryck för att social hållbarhet är ett begrepp vars betydelse inte är fixerad. Resultatet tolkas också som att begreppet konstrueras inom en postpolitisk diskurs präglad av konsensus och avsaknad av konflikt.

    Urban perceptions of tree-change migration2018In: Rural Society, ISSN 1037-1656, Vol. 27, no 3, p. 192-207Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses urban residents’ familiarisation and conceptualisation of the Australian ex-urban migration trend “tree-change”. Urban residents from Sydney, Australia were surveyed and asked whether they were familiar with the term tree-change and to nominate imagery and locations considered to reflect a tree-change move. Many survey respondents were not familiar with the term tree-change, but had little difficulty understanding the concept after brief prompting. Tree-change was linked with the visuality of the rural idyll through selecting imagery such as green vistas and heritage facades. Places nominated by survey respondents as tree-change locations were mostly proximal to Sydney, or large regional centres . These findings suggest that representations of tree-change are being received by urban residents, but urban residents’ familiarity with rural and regional Australia is low. This article highlights the place-specific nature of ex-urban and lifestyle migration, suggesting a “one size fits all” theoretical approach is ineffective.

    Ambivalent Inheritance: Jinja town in search of a postcolonial refrain2011In: Journal of Eastern African Studies, ISSN 1753-1055, E-ISSN 1753-1063, Vol. 5, no 3, p. 482-504Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract. Jinja Town in Uganda, selected as one of five centres of growth in the post-WWII era of colonial developmentism, is perennially represented in the Ugandan media as the quintessential industrial town gone off-track. This is particularly evident for the case of the African housing estates built in Jinja in the 1950s where the dominant everyday rhythm is no longer dictated by the factory siren or the monthly wage but instead is a landscape scored by multiple rhythms. By conceptually positioning these estates as inherited machines – ones still loaded with a profusion of signs and objects from the era of the modern industrial ‘refrain’ – this paper seeks both to illustrate the colonial planning rationality and to examine contemporary processes of vernacular urbanism and contestations surrounding ‘re-occupations’ of the post-colonial city. It is argued that we need to seriously question any a priori invocation of a generic ‘form’ of vernacular urbanism that is (or is not) to be prioritized over or ‘mixed’ with a Western planning cycle. Instead, the case study shows how historical and place specificities complicate the notion that the logics of place making can be unproblematically abstracted from.

    Becoming Jinja: The Production of Space and Making of Place in an African Industrial Town2005Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The years immediately preceding and following W.W.II marked a turning point in British colonial policy in Africa. In this doctoral thesis, which focuses on colonial and post-colonial Uganda, this turning point is approached in terms of a shift in would-be hegemonic socio-spatial diagrams of power. In turn, the town of Jinja is approached in terms of having constituted a strong point with shifting functions in a series of contested diagrams of power over time. Certain agents and spatial enclosures are examined in terms of having risen and fallen in terms of deemed efficiency in actualising specific lines and modalities of power; the ”African” housing estate, the ”Asian” and the ”Chief” being important among these. Drawing on the theoretical work of Foucault, Deleuze & Guattari, and Lefebvre, particularly that pertaining to discursive regimes of power-knowledge, space and the subject, I seek to show how projects and architectures of socio-spatial ordering instituted by dominant producers of space (principally the colonial and post-independence states, and capital) have impacted on – and in turn been influenced and translated by – the everyday projects of people in place. Much of this focus, and also the fieldwork, is channelled through the Walukuba Housing Estate that was built in the post-W.W.II colonial era. The study is based on archival research, extensive ethnographic fieldwork and secondary literature.

    In 1945/1946, the Colonial Administration in Uganda commissioned Ernst May – planner of Das Neue Frankfurt (1926–1930) – to design the Kampala Extension Scheme and the smaller Wandegeya Development Scheme. The past decade has seen increasing scholarly interest in the neglected ‘African’ episode of Mays planning oeuvre, but this literature has not explicitly examined how May’s planning articulated with the fraught political realities of late-colonial rule. Utilizing previously undocumented archive material and a theoretical frame informed by governmentality studies, this paper examines these articulations, particularly those relating to tensions and contradictions in Colonial government arising from the would-be turning-point from indirect rule to a bio-political rationality of development and welfare. It is shown that while May’s submitted plans spoke directly to the tropes of urban improvement, African detribalization and labour stabilization, which informed the ‘turning point’ in colonial policy, May’s elaborate socio-spatial interventions and the style in which these enunciated racial difference proved unpalatable to a colonial administration stifled by the rationality of the economic domain of government, by constraints on how difference could be enunciated and by African urban politics.

    Abstract

    The momentum towards a ‘developmentalist’ paradigm of colonial rule in the post-WWII Uganda Protectorate elevated the ‘Native Question’ to a new critical level. The twin imperatives of welfare and industrialisation threatened to make the ‘tribal’ categories that had erstwhile been used to ‘locate’ colonial subjects untenable and to force a crossing of the detribalisation threshold. In the context of African urban housing policy and housing provision during the period 1945-1960, the author deploys Foucault’s notions of sovereign, anatomo- and bio-power to examine the changing modalities of power deployed by the colonial state in managing a controlled transition across the tribal threshold. From sovereign technologies of power in the pre-WWII era designed to extract labour power from Africans while conserving their tribal loyalty; thence to the introduction of technologies to regenerate the still tribal African body (1945-1953); then to technologies designed to cross the tribal threshold and norm and form ‘loyal’ modern subjects (1954-1960). The article investigates and argues for the vital but always evolving role of public African urban housing both as instructional spaces for these power investments and also as spatial ‘sorting devices’ or relay points in a wider architecture for canalising movement, separating populations, and guiding loyalties. A detailed case study of Walukuba African Housing Estate in Jinja Town is used to ground this analysis as well as to examine the ‘limits’ to colonial technologies of power.
