    Women’s Work Interruptions and Career Prospects in Germany and Sweden2012In: International journal of sociology and social policy, ISSN 0144-333X, E-ISSN 1758-6720, Vol. 32, no 9/10, p. 561-575Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to focus on two welfare state regimes with differing degrees of de-familialisation strategies, Germany and Sweden, to study whether and how women's career interruptions influence their labour market prospects. By comparing women with continuous careers to those with discontinuous careers due to: parental leave or homemaking; unemployment; or other reasons, the authors explore the support for the skill depreciation hypothesis and signalling theory. Depending on the type of welfare state regime, the authors expect women to be subject to varying degrees of career punishment for time spent out of the labour market.

    Design/methodology/approach – Cox proportional hazard regression models of the transition rate of an upward or downward occupational move among women in the labour market were estimated.

    Findings – Focusing on upward career moves, the results show no significant relationship between a career interruption and upward occupational moves in Germany. In Sweden, the longer the accumulated duration of family leave, the lower the transition rate to an upward move. Overall occupational mobility is higher in Sweden, and in a policy regime where almost all women work, extended leaves may have a more negative effect on career prospects than in Germany, where many mothers drop out of the labour force altogether. In Germany, on the other hand, the authors find traces of unemployment to be scarring, as the risk of downward moves increases with increased unemployment experience.

    Originality/value – The paper explores the impact of policies in shaping women's career trajectories and critically examines the often-cited skill depreciation hypothesis.

    A Nested Analysis of Electoral Donations2017In: Journal of Mixed Methods Research, ISSN 1558-6898, E-ISSN 1558-6901, Vol. 11, no 1, p. 77-98Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article reports the results of a nested analysis conducted to evaluate whether or not electoral donations are considered legal bribes. Introduced by Lieberman, nested analysis brings together the strengths of the regression analysis and the case study research by integrating large-N approaches (LNA) with small-N approaches (SNA). The nested analysis uses a sequential sampling model (QUANTITATIVE → QUALITATIVE) and a nested sampling design (case selection “on/off the line”). Here, Lieberman’s original model was extended to deal with an apparent paradox that emerged from the analysis. This inquiry included a cross-national examination among 78 countries, denoted as LNA, followed by an intranational analysis conducted in Colombia, where an SNA survey with 302 respondents and an SNA case study were carried out.

    Corporate Donations to Electoral Campaigns: A Case Study of White-Collar Crime2013In: State Crime, ISSN 2046-6056, Vol. 2, no 1, p. 52-71Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Mackenzie and Green (2008) and McBarnet (2006) have argued that it is possible for white-collar crimes to emerge from actions that are cloaked in legality. In this article I study this paradox, focusing on the case of corporate donations to electoral campaigns. In particular, I will present an intra-national study on corporate funding of elections in Colombia. The case examines the electoral donations from palm oil growers’ firms to the 2002 and 2006 presidential campaigns of Álvaro Uribe. It illustrates how legal donations delivered by corporations were reciprocated by incumbents through favourable legislation and policy outcomes. Although donors were not prosecuted for giving electoral donations, since it is a legal practice, administrative and judicial authorities have demonstrated that the donors communicated with incumbents with the intention to commit fraud.

    Corporate tax avoidance: a crime of globalization2016In: Crime, law and social change, ISSN 0925-4994, E-ISSN 1573-0751, Vol. 66, no 2, p. 199-216Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article approaches tax avoidance as a crime of globalization. Tax avoidance is not just a problem originating in the corporation. Corporate tax avoidance is a practice that involves different corporations and different territories simultaneously and, as such, it has global consequences because these corporations do not pay their fair tax in the countries in which they operate. As it is seen here, the free-market creates opportunities for tax avoidance when nations and territories strive to attract international investment by changing their tax rules in favor of powerful corporations. Tax regulations have been re-written by tax authorities, financial controls have been removed, and secrecy has been guaranteed to provide a favorable atmosphere for investors. However, tax authorities only give total exemptions to foreign and non-domiciled corporations while taking taxes from their own citizens and national corporations. In all, the tax incentives offered are not the result of less state intervention in the economy but are instead the product of more state intervention in rewriting the rules of the economy in favor of the powerful.

    Electoral Donations as Legal Bribes: Evidence from a Survey of Private Corporations in Colombia2012In: International Journal of Criminology and Sociology, ISSN 1929-4409, Vol. 1, p. 162-175Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article I study why companies give electoral donations to support political leaders. I collected and used a unique data set on electoral financing at the corporate level in Colombia. The data show that firms consider electoral contributions to be "legal bribes". Consistent with the theory of bribery, these donations are made because of the low quality of election regulation, the high expectation of reciprocity, and the pre-existing relationships with incumbents. These features suggest "legal neutralization": donors can break the law without committing crime.

    Is the top leadership of the organizations promoting tax avoidance?2016In: Journal of Financial Crime, ISSN 1359-0790, E-ISSN 1758-7239, Vol. 23, no 2, p. 273-288Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – This paper aims to study the roles of CEOs, board of directors and accounting/auditing firms in the adoption of tax avoidance schemas.

    Design/methodology/approach – A cross-national analysis with data from 22 countries is used toexamine the relationship between tax avoidance and the ethical qualities of the top leadership of theorganizations, the firm’s profile and the tax/legal system characteristics.

    Findings – The results show that the board of directors is the actor that contributes more to control taxavoidance cross-nationally, whereas the CEOs’ role to contend this practice is less relevant. Theoutcomes for accounting/auditing firms reveal that the stronger standards these firms have, the moretax avoidance is observed.

    Originality/value – The methodology (cross-national analysis) and dimensions examined (role of theactors/instances of discretional power) in this inquiry offer a novel perspective to the analysis of taxavoidance, as most scholarly studies have taken a national approach and have mainly focused onstudying the characteristics of the firms involved in tax avoidance.

    Legal bribes?: An analysis of corporate donations to electoral campaigns2013Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this research I analyse how the existence of regulations that allow private funding of election campaigns have created opportunities for crime. Three specific questions are addressed here: 1. Do electoral donations increase political corruption? 2. Why do companies give electoral donations? 3. How are electoral donors compensated? To address these questions, I adopted a nested analysis. This sequential, mixed method brings together the strengths of both regression analysis and case study research, while conducting a validity check—triangulation—by convergence of results via different methods and theoretical approaches. I first conducted a cross-national comparison of 78 countries; then, I conducted a survey of 302 private companies in Colombia; and finally, I documented one case that described how campaign contributions affect the political decision-making process.

    The main conclusion of this research is that electoral law creates opportunities for crime, because it legalizes the entrance of interested money into politics, disqualifies donors as perpetrators, and introduces regulations with null or limited deterrent effect on the delivery of undue reciprocities. Indeed, I demonstrated that electoral financing is used as a legal bribery by private corporations. The legal character of this political instrument is perverted when undue compensation is delivered to donors. This is not a crime with a single perpetrator; rather, donors and incumbents are equally involved. However, donors are protected by electoral law, because the money delivered as corrupt incentive is classified as legal. This suggests that the law is being used as a mechanism that neutralizes donors as perpetrators. This perspective points to the manipulative use of electoral law, or creative compliance, as the term is used by McBarnet (2006).

    Political Corruption and Electoral Funding: A Cross-National Analysis2013In: International Criminal Justice Review, ISSN 1057-5677, E-ISSN 1556-3855, Vol. 23, no 1, p. 75-94Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to study the suspect nature of private campaign finance, understood as the donors’ hidden intentions and delayed exchange of reciprocities with incumbents. In particular, I explore whether electoral contributions from private corporations lead to political corruption. On the basis of a cross-national analysis, I find that, first, private financing reduces corruption because the use of this legal mechanism is enough to guarantee that the donors’ interests will be achieved. Second, donors recognize that they have gained influence over policy outcomes, although in the spirit of the electoral laws this is not intended to occur. This increases corruption because incumbents use their positions of power to bend the rules and to adjust regulations and decisions in favor of their financial supporters. This paradox suggests law neutralization.

    Political corruption as a form of state crime: A case study on electoral donations2015In: State crime: Critical concepts in criminology. Vol. II: Varieties of state crimes / [ed] W. J. Chambliss, C. Moloney, Abingdon: Routledge, 2015, p. 283-300Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this chapter, I analyze how state crimes emerge when incumbents utilize their offices to reciprocate electoral donors with undue benefits, favorable regulations, contracts, and job appointments. The problem, as it is seen here, is that (a) while electoral donations are cloaked with legality, they facilitate corruption, and (b) the delivery of undue benefits creates social harm, because it diverts the allocation of public resources and destroys confidence in the political system. Thus, I argue and demonstrate how the money delivered as electoral donations constitutes a corrupt incentive that should be classified as illegal.

    State Aid and Taxation of Transnational Companies: A Study of State-Corporate Crime2017In: Critical Criminology, ISSN 1205-8629, E-ISSN 1572-9877, Vol. 25, no 4, p. 507-522Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines the taxation of transnational companies from the perspective of state-corporate crime. As in Sutherland’s pioneering study on white-collar crime, the author relies, in this case, on administrative decisions issued by the European Commissioner for Competition regarding Fiat and Starbucks. According to the Commissioner, the tax advisors of these organizations prepared and submitted special tax rulings on behalf of their clients that were granted by the Luxembourg and Dutch tax authorities, respectively. However, these tax rulings were considered illegal under European law, as they constitute state aid. Therefore, the Commissioner fined Fiat and Starbucks. In this inquiry, state aid from tax rulings is conceived as a process of capital accumulation that arises from states’ regimes of permission based on the interactions between public sector and private sector actors. Thus, an observable symbiosis between tax authorities and transnational companies allowed the latter to use tax regulations in a manipulative way, while the former exercised weak/undue control. This study also unveiled the criminogenic role of tax advisors, an industry that is rarely held accountable for their actions.

    Abstract [en]

    The study aims to give a description of the conditions in which matters is prepared within

    Swedish Government`s offices, to describe the adaptive capacity in the agency`s internal

    processes by investigating the experiences of some civil servants restricted to the Ministry of

    Enterprise and the Ministry of Environment in their work with the EU Maritime Policy Green

    Paper. The results have been analyzed against the basis of eight identified criteria of building

    adaptive capacity in socially dominated systems. The criteria are comprised of both individual

    and organizational abilities. Only two of them were fully met; the criteria about diversity in

    experiences and knowledge and the criteria about information and how the information has

    been applied. However, the process has traces of all the identified criteria. Hence, there are

    elements of adaptive capacity in the Governments office internal processes and this ability

    exists mainly on individual scale. The two most crucial factors that limit the ability to build

    adaptive capacity are the scarcity of time and the work overload experienced by the

    employees.

    Värdet av chefers etiska kompetens2013In: Socialmedicinsk Tidskrift, ISSN 0037-833X, Vol. 90, no 6, p. 857-865Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    While research concerning ethical competence in medical practice is frequent, ethical competence in health care management is less often studied. This article focuses ethical competence and its preconditions with regard to health care managers’ identification and handling of conflicts of interest. The article is based on empirical research. The aim is to highlight the importance of managers’ ethical competence and what such competence need to contain in order to promote ethical responsibility and a healthy working environment. Of great importance for success are having rational emotions, an adequate ethical language and communicative skills in order to promote dialogue. But the political and administrative control system also needs to clearly articulate the ethical dimensions of the managers’ task, allocate resources for training in ethics, and ensure that support systems and evaluation focus not only on finances but also on the value-rational aspects with regard to what the health care organization is aimed for.

    På spaning efter etik: Etisk kompetens och ansvarstagande för ledning och styrning av hälso- och sjukvården2018Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Kraven på vårdens professioner och chefer är höga. De förväntas ge en god och säker vård på lika villkor till hela befolkningen, administrera, prioritera och arbeta kostnadseffektivt. Men hälso- och sjukvården fungerar inte som den ska. Arbetsmiljön är osund, sjuksköterskor lämnar yrket, vården är ojämlik och svårt sjuka patienter får vänta i långa köer. Detta gör att människors liv, hälsa och värdighet står på spel.

    På spaning efter etik uppmärksammar tre nyckelgrupper av aktörer som genom sina beslut har ett stort inflytande över vårdens villkor: politiker, opolitiska chefstjänstemän och vårdgivarnas högsta chefer i landstingets ledningsorganisation. Hur ser de på sitt etiska ansvar för hälso- och sjukvården? Vilka etiska bedömningar och konsekvensanalyser gör de? Och vilken etisk kompetens fordras för att de ska kunna ta ett etiskt ansvar för vårdens villkor genom ledning, styrning och organisation på den regionala nivån – och därmed för att samhällsmedborgarna ska kunna känna tillit till att vården fungerar som den ska?

    Fantasi eller verklighet?: En studie av barns magiska tänkande i anslutning till filmens värld2006Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Mitt syfte med denna uppsats är att studera det magiska tänkandet hos barn i åldrarna 8-13 år. Jag ämnar lyssna på barnens tankar om magi och genom detta få en bild av hur de uppfattar magi, med hjälp av två filmer med magiska inslag. Möjligheterna att för ytterligare en tid tro på jultomten och häxor och andra magiska väsen bidrar till en trygghet hos barn som många gånger vuxit upp för fort, menar medieforskaren Ulf Dahlquist. Denna teori har väckt frågor hos mig. Min huvudfrågeställning lyder: Hur ser barns magiska tänkande ut i åldrarna 8-13 år? Med detta menar jag om fantasivärlden är en värld av fantasi eller verklighet. Finns det alltjämt hos dem en ovisshet om gränserna mellan fantasi och verklighet? Vad är på riktigt respektive vad är på låtsas? Jag kommer att göra en analys av barns synsätt och tankar utifrån filmerna Harry Potter och den flammande bägaren från 2005 och Berättelsen om Narnia: Häxan och lejonet från 2005.

    Jag utgår från en hermeneutisk vetenskapssyn och har en kvalitativ ansats. Som underlag för min analys har jag studerat litteratur på området och genomfört ostrukturerade intervjuer med representanter för den målgrupp jag undersökt.

    I filmens värld kan gränser vara flytande och det är inte alltid lätt att inse när något är på låtsas eller på riktigt. Fantasin gör det möjligt att abstrahera från det omedelbart givna och reflektera över frågor som personlig identitet, förändringar, konventioner, moraliska principer och naturlagar. Detta funderande med hjälp av fantasin möjliggör en insikt om hur världen är beskaffad och var gränserna går för vad som är möjligt och omöjligt.

    Min slutsats är att det som barn tror på eller inte tror på är beroende av deras intresse och den familj som de växer upp i och präglas av. Det magiska tänkandet verkar inte vara åldersbundet, utan en individuell process som grundar sig på sociala premisser. Sammantaget visar denna studie att barns tro är långt ifrån konstant och generell utan den utgår ifrån varje enskild individ. Tron på det magiska kan inge hopp och möjligheter som i sin tur inger spänning, kärlek eller trygghet vilket kan förklara varför vissa barn har kvar mer av det magiska tänkandet än andra då de kanske behöver det mer än andra. Svaret på min fråga hur det magiska tänkandet ser ut hos barn i åldrarna 8-13 år är således komplex och individuellt.

    Abstract [en]

    Building upon my doctoral thesis, Diasporic Narratives of Sexuality: Identity Formation among Iranian-Swedish Women", the research proposed here seeks to examine the under-researched area of masculinity and sexuality of Iranian men living in different diasporic spaces. For the purposes of this research I seek to investigate (a) the effect of Iranian Islamic cultures and socializations, (b) the experiences of migration and ethnic relations on the men’s practices of masculinity and sexuality, and (c) how these influences may complicate their (re) presentation and perceptions of their masculinities and sexual experiences. By studying the impact of Orientalist views on the men’s identity formations, this study aims to explore how Iranian born men (re)negotiate masculinity, sexuality and subjectivity as they confront the variety of orientalist stereotypes in different diasporc spaces. By analyzing how the dichotomization of ‘we and them’ arises in media, literature, and film among others, I aim to understand not only what prejudices the interviewee men face on a daily basis, but also how the stereotypes are used to differentiate Iranian (Middle Eastern) men from ‘liberated and equal seeking’ white Western men.

    Abstract [en]

    Seeking to expand the focus on changing gender roles and construction of diasporic femininities and sexualities in migration studies, Farahani presents an original analysis of first generation Iranian immigrant women in Sweden. Certainly, highlighting the hybrid experiences of Swedish Iranians, Farahani explores the tensions that develop between the process of (self)disciplining women’s bodies and the coping tactics that women employ. Subsequently, Gender, Sexuality, and Diaspora demonstrates how migratory experiences impact sexuality and, conversely, how sexuality is constitutive of migratory processes.

    A timely book rich with empirical and theoretical insights on the subject of gender, diaspora and sexuality, it will appeal to scholars and undergraduate and postgraduate students of gender studies, anthropology, sociology, sexuality studies, diaspora, postcolonial and Middle Eastern studies.

    Abstract [en]

    The dialogue-based article departs from our persistent research engagement with intersectional feminist approaches and questions related to racialization, representation, locationality and positionality. We focus on the notion of home and homelessness, longing and belonging, migration and knowledge production.

    Some of the troubling questions we engage with are: How are the (im)possibility of feeling at home, migratory subject positions, and knowledge production conditioned by shifting socio-political contexts, culturally coded circumstances and the conceptualisation of difference? How do constantly shifting and intersected power hierarchies (re)shape the conceptualisation and (re)presentation of the certain types of knowledge and knowledge-makers through academic production, and through literary and visual means?

    These questions are discussed in dialogue between us, two Swedish gender researchers interested in cultural practices and cultural representations. The article unfolds through a dialogical method where, initially, our respective positions and research inputs, in relation to the article’s questions, are presented. The article continues to discuss the very same questions predominantly through different literary and visual examples. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichies’ TED talk, The danger of single story, has an evolving and central role in our dialogue. By linking different examples to the existing intersecting institutionalized power relations, we show that the personal is institutional.

    Rasifiering av kunskapsproduktion: En epistemologisk resa genom processer av inkludering och exkludering i olika akademiska forum2017In: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, Vol. 38, no 4, p. 31-53Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The central aim of this article is to examine intersectional processes of racialisation within the academic communities: racialisation of knowledge producers and their produced knowledge. We explore what kinds of knowledge productions and knowing subject positions are rendered (im)possible in everyday academic interactions. We use our racialised scholarly experiences as a methodological entry point to contextualise the navigations and negotiations of shifting and intersecting power relations. Our analytical reasoning is presented through several steps. First, we discuss how academic habitus and affiliations maintained in various formal and informal forums are based on established, racialised norms. Second, we discuss how the presence or absence of epistemic entitlement within different academic settings and communities is established through racialised hierarchies. Thus the physical, social, intellectual and emotional spaces that we inhabit create comfort zones for some and discomfort zones for others. Third, we argue how managing the existing accent ceiling becomes a mode for navigating the conditioning norms of whiteness. In our conclusions, we reflect on the passivity, silences as well as (mis)use of the vocabulary of anti-racism and intersectionality as a form of 'white' capital for shoring their privileges further rather than undoing it.

    Networks of exclusion: job segmentation and social networks in the knowledge economy2007In: Equal Opportunities International, ISSN 0261-0159, Vol. 26, no 2, p. 144-161Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – This paper aims to highlight the need to understand the mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion in the workplace which are often embedded in micro-level work practices. It explores how social networks and the resources contained within them function differentially among workers to reinforce existing patterns of preferential access to the most desirable positions in the labour market.

    Design/methodology/approach – Using in-depth interviews of electrical engineers in a case study firm in the IT industry in Cambridge, England, the paper outlines the strong gendered and ethnic patterns of segmentation within the engineering occupation.

    Findings – The paper finds significant inequalities in access to, and awareness of, the resources contained within some social networks in the workplace.

    Originality/value – The study critiques the extension of social capital theory into the workplace due to its conceptual and methodological focus on positive outcomes.

    Ungdomars väg från individuella programmet till arbetslivet2009Student paper other, 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The interest in the subject of this study was raised during our education when we read about the

    difficulties for young people to find a place at the labour-market.

    The aim of this study was to find out what the view of the possibilities to find a place on the labourmarket

    is for young people, 16 - 18 years old, who don't follow a national program but follow the

    individual program.

    Both quantitative and qualitative methods have been used through a survey questionnaire and a

    group-interview. The results show that young people know that education is important to get a job

    but at the same time the majority says that they would leave school if they got a job-offer. The

    young people think that they have a relatively good knowledge about the labour-market but at the

    same time they can't describe what it imply. This could mean that there is a gap between school and

    working life.

    Alcott, Little Women, and the Popular Sublime2013In: American Studies in Scandinavia, ISSN 0044-8060, Vol. 45, no 1-2, p. 135-148Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In my reading of Alcott’s Little Women tetralogy (1868-1886) I argue that the aesthetics it proclaims - mainly in the representation of the development of Jo’s literary endeavours - can be conceived in terms of what I here define as a ”popular sublime”. In short, it consists of a depiction of everyday existence that transcends into political dimensions and in the case of Jo runs from a sharply cut and exaggerated melodramatic style over sensationalist thrills before it finally lands in sentimentalism with a political aim. I thus claim the popular sublime to be a conceptual move away from the eighteenth-century elitism in which the sublime experience caused magnificient existential angst in male solitude instead of the empathic tears and communal smiles as effected in for instance Alcott’s and Beecher Stowe’s sentimental realism of the nineteenth-century. In the end, the popular sublime is all about recognizing the nobleness of others and the sublimity in all mankind which is the democratic message it can be said to convey.

    Abstract [en]

    The sentimental novel and the struggle for citizenship: Rousseau’s Julie and Staël’s Delphine

    The tragic fates of a great number of women in sentimental novels of the eighteenth century can be viewed against the background of classic liberal theory. They provide examples of how individual freedom and restraint in the name of common good can be reconciled. Faced with the impossible choice between a life guided by the principle of love and that of virtue, women often choose self-sacrifice as a means of preserving a sense of individuality in the face of the demands of public universality. The epistolary novels, Julie ou La Nouvelle Héloïse (1761) of Jean Jacques Rousseau and the Delphine (1802) of Germaine de Staël, present two rather different treatments of this problem. Rousseau’s Julie is a woman whose unquenchable desire transforms her into a prototype of female unreliability not worthy of societal recognition. Staël’s Delphine, in turn, unmasks a ruthless and unprincipled society which prohibits her from becoming its full-fledged member.

    Abstract [en]

    Retrophilia and the Desire for the Past

    In this article, I question hierarchies of temporality by a critical examination of difference, that is, the time conception of a still indicative demarcation between past, present and future characteristic of the historical consciousness in Western society. My approach consists of a tripartite theoretical argument, which makes up for the first part of the article. The first step is constituted by my thesis in which I claim that a pivotal driving force in Western hierarchical historiography consists of the desire for the past, implicating a desire for difference. The second step complicates this desire by establishing a multidimensional model of desire, in which difference is diffused into differences motivated by cognition, emotion, politics and sexuality. The third step raises the possibility of dissolving difference altogether by an analytical concept I name retrophilia, love of the past, where time levels are claimed to be encouraged to collapse. In the second part of the article I concretize my argumentation by a reading of Gabriella Håkansson’s historical novel Aldermanns arvinge (Aldermann’s heir, 2013), set in the eighteenth century. By using a multidimensional model of desire and the figuration of retrophilia as reading tools, I conclude that the novel stages difference in the plural rather than the singular. These differences are evoked by multidimensional desires in which the past does not have to play the part of the Other. Instead embodiment and sensual experience give way to alternative ways of understanding both time and history.
