    Hållbar samhällsutveckling inom ett normkreativt avfallsprojekt2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The global social, ecological and economic challenges facing humanity today have given rise to the UN's 17 Global Objectives and Agenda 2030 to achieve sustainable development. Kate Raworth, professor of economics from Oxford University, has in the same spirit developed a visual framework with seven related conditions for mankind to live by, to strive towards living within a safe and fair zone of sustainable development. This framework and associated conditions for sustainable development are applied in this study with the intention to investigate and concretize the potentially contributing sustainable development effects of a norm-creative waste management project in a process of sustainable societal development. The results of the study show clear evidence that the waste management project has contributed to sustainable societal development according to the respondents who participated in the study. However, further studies are required to concretize these results through a more scientifically objective methodology.

    From classroom to conscription: Leadership emergence in childhood and early adulthood2018In: Leadership Quarterly, ISSN 1048-9843, E-ISSN 1873-3409Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Research on leadership emergence has mainly focused on adulthood and relied on retrospective accounts of childhood factors. Based on a prospective cohort study of 7719 boys born in 1953, of which 5928 were later drafted, we explored individual differences in leadership emergence in childhood and early adulthood. The data set consisted of register data from different time points and a survey of the cohort in the 6th grade. As expected, cognitive ability, tallness and muscular power were decisive for assessment of military officer suitability. However, we also found a moderate to strong impact on this assessment score from social class, leadership aspirations in childhood, birth order, self-regulatory skills in school, parental support, and previous participation in extracurricular activities. Similarly, social class, cognitive ability, developmental experiences, and birth order were important for nominations as class party organizer in the 6th grade. Delay of gratification was not associated with these nominations at all and was neutralized by cognitive ability in relation to officer suitability. The results strongly support a life-cycle approach to leadership emergence.

    Macroeconomic changes and trends in dental care utilization in Estonia and Lithuania in 2004-2012: a repeated cross-sectional study2018In: BMC Oral Health, ISSN 1472-6831, E-ISSN 1472-6831, Vol. 18, no 1, article id 199Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to assess trends and inequalities in dental care utilization in Estonia and Lithuania in relation to large-scale macroeconomic changes in 2004-2012.

    METHODS: Data on 22,784 individuals in the 20-64 age group were retrieved from nationally representative cross-sectional surveys in 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2012. Age- and sex-standardized prevalence estimates of past 12-month dental visits were calculated for each study year, stratified by gender, age group, ethnicity, educational level and economic activity. Multivariable logistic regression analysis was used to assess the independent effect of study year and socioeconomic status on dental visits.

    RESULTS: The age- and sex-standardized prevalence of dental visits in the past 12 months was 46-52% in Estonia and 61-67% in Lithuania. In 2004-2008, the prevalence of dental visits increased by 5.9 percentage points in both countries and fell in 2008-2010 by 3.8 percentage points in Estonia and 4.6 percentage points in Lithuania. In both countries the prevalence of dental care utilization had increased slightly by 2012, although the increase was statistically insignificant. Results from a logistic regression analysis showed that these differences between study years were not explained by differences in socioeconomic status or oral health conditions. Women, the main ethnic group (only in Estonia), and higher educated and employed persons had significantly higher odds of dental visits in both countries, but the odds were lower for 50-64 year olds in Lithuania.

    CONCLUSIONS: In European Union countries with lower national wealth, the use of dental services is sensitive to macroeconomic changes regardless of the extent of public coverage, at the same time, higher public coverage may not relate to lower inequalities in dental care use.

    Samverkan: ur organisations-, och kommunikationsperspektiv: en kvalitativ studie av samverkan skolan och socialtjänsten emellan2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Flera studier visar att många barn som far illa hamnar mellan två myndigheter i stället för att få uppmärksamhet och hjälp som dem behöver. Anledningen till detta uppges vara bland annat att de respektive myndigheterna och yrkesutövarna inte lyckas samverka.

    Syfte med denna studie är att undersöka, analysera samt diskutera huruvida socialtjänsten och skolan samverkar kring barn som far illa eller riskerar att fara illa. Ett ytterligare syfte är att lyfta fram alla möjliga faktorer som gynnar eller missgynnar att en effektiv samverkan sker. Återkoppling från socialtjänsten, efter en anmälan har gjorts, är en ytterligare fråga som ger upphov att forska kring detta i denna uppsats.

    Denna studie utgår ifrån den kvalitativa forskningsmetoden där empirin baseras på intervjuer: två rektorer och två socialtjänstemän. Organisations, – och kommunikationsteorier är de teoretiska perspektiven som har använts i denna studie för att kunna analysera den insamlade och bearbetade empirin. Även tidigare forskningar är av stor vikt för analysen av resultat. I resultatet presenteras de olika samverkansformer som finns mellan de två myndigheterna. Resultatet visar även vilka faktorer eller möjligheter som är avgörande för effektiv samverkan eller däremot hindrar samverkan i vissa fall.

    Flerspråkiga elever smågruppsarbetar2018Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Smågruppsarbete erbjuder många möjligheter att använda språket på ett varierat och utmanande sätt. I smågrupparbeten måste elever på egen hand organisera sitt arbete. De måste planera och besluta tillsammans. De måste också diskutera, resonera, jämföra och sammanfatta för att lösa uppgifter. I idealfallet ger därför smågrupparbete många tillfällen till att tala och lyssna. Det är därför inte konstigt att smågruppsarbete rekommenderas som arbetsform i andraspråksundervisning.

    I denna bok presenteras studier om andraspråksutveckling i skolan som genomförts inom ramen för ett projekt som fokuserat smågruppsarbete i årskurs 8 och 9 i klassrum med elever med olika grad av behärskning av undervisningsspråket. Genom att studera smågruppsarbete närmare vill författarna föra en mer nyanserad och balanserad diskussion om hur smågruppsarbete kan organiseras för att bli språkutvecklande på mest effektiva vis. I studierna undersöks vad olika former av smågruppsarbete erbjuder för möjligheter till interaktion, dvs. vilken interaktion smågruppsarbete i sig skapar och därmed vilka möjligheter till språkutveckling smågruppsarbete kan ge.

    Niki de Saint Phalle Playing with the Feminine in the Male Factory: Hon - en katedral2018In: Stedelijk Studies, ISSN 2405-7177, no 7, p. 1-16Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    HON – en katedral (SHE – a cathedral, June 4–September 4, 1966) at Moderna Museet in Stockholm, was structured as a giant, reclining woman filling the entire space of the museum’s largest room, more or less to its edges (fig. 1). She was painted white with patterns of clear colors over parts of her body. Entering HON – en katedral (hereafter simply Hon) through its vagina, the audience found themselves walking and climbing in something that has been referred to as a kind of amusement park. The image of the invasive, female body placed directly into the heart of the museum institution served to disturb power relations within artistic networks and cultural life at a time when both the representation of women and gender positions in the arts were being challenged.

    The Good, the Bad & the Profitable: En studie om kontroversiella och hållbara företags prestation på börsen2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: Kontroversiella företag är företag verksamma i branscher som anses skada samhället och individer. Det kan därför vara motsägelsefullt för dessa att vara socialt ansvarsfulla som företag och kan även påstås vara omöjligt att vara socialt hållbar. Det finns även socialt hållbara företag och studier som visar att deras socialt hållbara arbete leder till ökat företags värde, samtidigt finns det studier som visar att kontroversiella företag ger en abnormt högre avkastning.

    Syfte: Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka ifall det finns ett samband mellan högt rankade hållbara företag och högre avkastning. Detta för att ta reda på ifall hållbara företagens CSR – arbete har en påverkan på avkastningen.

    Metod: Denna studie använder sig av en kvantitativ metod där sambandet mellan avkastning och hållbarhet undersöks. Hållbarheten bestäms genom Folksams index för hållbara företag och en regressionsanalys görs över åren 2009–2013.

    Slutsats: Slutsatsen i denna studie är att kontroversiella företag presterar bättre än hållbara företag.

    Det räcker om de förstår den: En studie av lärares och elevers uppfattningar om multiplikation och multiplikationstabellen2018 (ed. 1)Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    För att bygga upp en matematikundervisning som utgår från aktuell forskning och skolans behov, krävs en hållbar lärarutbildning. Eftersom lärarutbildningen måste utgå från studenternas aktuella kunskaper i matematik, blir en central fråga hur de tillägnat sig sina kunskaper och uppfattningar. Mot denna bakgrund har vi genomfört en studie med fokus på multiplikation och dess invers division. Studien har i huvudsak genomförts i årskurserna 3 och 5.

    Studien visar att undervisningen om multiplikation i årskurs 3 enbart handlar om upprepad addition. Undervisningen om multiplikationstabellen handlar inte om mönster i multiplikationstabellen utan enbart om att göra så kallade ”hopp” i tabellen. Detta gör det svårt för eleverna att senare förstå begrepp och mönster som är grundläggande för att kunna generalisera sina kunskaper till nya talområden och för att förstå den grundläggande algebran. Vi menar, att detta leder till problem som vi under senare år kunnat iaktta bland våra lärarstudenter.

    Manliga och Kvinnliga Riskkapitalister! Finns det skillnader?2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to investigate which factors affect male and female Venture Capitalists. Furthermore, this study aims to provide support for venture capitalists, entrepreneurs and interested researchers seeking greater knowledge about venture capitalist’s investment process. The aim of this research is to be able to orient these individuals in their future investment choices and to have a starting point to reflect on before making their decisions. This study is based on both primary and secondary data. Secondary data have been applied in the form of previous studies and research on risk capitalists, to compile research carried out on the subject and facilitate future research. The theoretical reference framework consists of factors that influence risk capitalists investment decisions, risk and elimination with the account of differences between female and male venture capitalists in investment decisions. Since this study studies deeper knowledge in a process, a qualitative method has been applied in the form of eight semi structured interviews with eight venture capitalists located in Stockholm. The result shows some resemblance to previous research, but there are other variables that were not previously investigated.

    Mångfald vs. Enfald: En kvalitativ studie om hur och varför svenska advokatbyråer arbetar för en lyckad mångfaldsrekrytering2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats undersöker hur och varför byråerna hanterar etnisk mångfald samt hur organisationens kultur påverkar det framtida mångfaldsarbetet. Studiens resultat visar på att samtliga respondenter från advokatbyråerna har liknande mångfaldsarbete med små avvikelser. I branschen arbetar företagen aktivt med mångfald genom utbildningar för både anställda, klienter och mentorskapsprogram för ungdomar. De främsta motiven bakom mångfaldssatsningarna är baserade på ekonomisk vinning vilket uttrycks i form av konkurrensfördelar, intressenters efterfrågan och attraktivare arbetsgivare. Kulturen på byråerna varierar mellan konservativ, öppen och elitiskt och då arbetskraften är homogen är det till nackdel för den etniska mångfalden då medarbetare ofta anpassar sig till normer. Förändringar sker långsamt inom byråerna och på samma sätt kommer mångfaldsarbetet att ta tid. Ingen av byråernas årsredovisning har konkreta mål för en ökad etnisk mångfald.

    Hyperlocal News And Media Accountability2018In: Digital Journalism, ISSN 2167-0811, E-ISSN 2167-082X, Vol. 6, no 8, p. 1064-1077Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates how hyperlocal entrepreneurs interpret and undertake the role of accountable journalism, but it still acknowledges the many roles hyperlocal news may hold in a local community. The analysis is built on the approaches within this group toward (1) business and (2) journalism. The findings suggest that the focus of (A) nonprofit/nonprofessional could be to mirror community events, often as a “positive” counter-image. Within (B) nonprofit/professional, interrogative reporting could be viewed as a contribution to the common good. Niches of news alerts and partnership content are found within (C) for-profit/nonprofessional, while a full news standard is the (struggling) ambition within (D) for-profit/professional. The argument can be made that a deeper understanding of how media accountability can be addressed and/or promoted in this diverse sector of scarce resources is a vital question for policymakers, educational institutions and the public–as well as for the future of local journalism.

    Ett metallskrin från 1500-talet: En studie kring proveniens och ikonografi2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose with this essay is to describe, analyze and interpret a Renaissance casket. The provenience is not very clear. A great part of my investigation is therefore focused on the task to find more information about the origin of this item. The casket has been given a date, 1590 and a master of origin, a goldsmith from Hamburg in the north of Germany. I haven't been able to confirm that information. Even though the matter of my concern is a unique piece of artwork, caskets in general, during the period of my interest are not particularly uncommon. During my work period I was lucky enough to find information that suggests a totally different German goldsmith, a fact that made the research even more exciting. It has broaden the field of investigation to incorporate even Nürnberg, in the south of Germany. Typical styles of the regions have therefore been a part of this investigation. Also the fact that German goldsmiths where contracted by The Swedish Royal Court.

    Ring 112: En essä om auktoritet och frihet som förutsättningar för utbildning och bildning i gymnasieskolan2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    As a high school teacher I took to authoritarian methods in order to give students education and ultimately formation. It was an original force that made me react to chaos and harassment in classroom. In the essay, I examine my own reactions and frustrations in my efforts to create endurable and friendlier environment in class. The discussion is about authority and freedom and to what extent it is reasonable to use authoritarian methods to facilitate for students to reach potential freedom. The conclusion is that methods that can be described as authoritarian are not consistent with modern education, but teachers have to get means and resources to meet all pupils. An other conclusion is that we have to change perspective from the individual teacher to an overall discussion on authority and freedom in high school education.

    Matrophobia and Uncanny Kinship: Eva Hoffman’s The Secret2018In: Humanities, ISSN 2076-0787, Vol. 7, no 4, article id 122Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Eva Hoffman, known primarily for her autobiography of exile, Lost in Translation: A Life in a New Language (1989), is also the author of a work of Gothic science fiction, set in the future. The Secret: A Fable for our Time (2001) is narrated by a human clone, whose discovery that she is the “monstrous” cloned offspring of a single mother emerges with growing discomfort at the uncanny similarities and tight bonds between her and her mother. This article places Hoffman’s use of the uncanny in relation to her understanding of Holocaust history and the condition of the postmemory generation. Relying on Freud’s definition of the uncanny as being “both very alien and deeply familiar,” she insists that “the second generation has grown up with the uncanny.” In The Secret, growing up with the uncanny leads to matrophobia, a strong dread of becoming one’s mother. This article draws on theoretical work by Adrienne Rich and Deborah D. Rogers to argue that the novel brings to “the matrophobic Gothic” specific insights into the uncanniness of second-generation experiences of kinship, particularly kinship between survivor mothers and their daughters.

    Basket som integrationsverktyg i socioekonomiskt utsatta områden: En kvalitativ undersökning om ideella organisationers arbete för att främja integration2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In recent times, sport's responsibility has grown beyond being only Sweden's largest people movement and activating people. Now sport is also expected to contribute to crime prevention and prevent other social problems. Using sport as a method and a kind of gear has in turn given sport other challenges. By using institutional theory, the study wants to highlight the working practices in which nonprofit organizations use in their own associations as well as with other organizations, to promote integration. The study is aimed at basketball associations in socio- economically vulnerable areas. To investigate this, a main issue was formulated and to answer it, two questions were formulated as an aid. An unstructured group interview was conducted consisting of four (4) respondents with different positions and active in sports in the socio- economically vulnerable areas. Four (4) semistructured interviews were also conducted with sports leaders in the basketball associations in the same areas. The results showed that cooperation between the association, school, the Swedish Basketball Federation, the municipality and the district is of utmost importance in the work of integration and other social problems. Different types of projects are also a common practice. The basketball associations generally have the same working practices with the organizations in the surrounding area with certain exceptions that occur within their own associations.

    Kvinnligt ledarskap i en mansdominerad bransch: Anställdas uppfattningar av sina kvinnliga chefer2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    According to previous research there is no doubt about the existence of genderrole stereotypes. These stereotypes have been described as an obstacle for women to reach management positions largely because the stereotypes assigned to women are not deemed as leader characteristics. This study aims to examine how women who have reached these positions actually lead to explore the possibility to lead with stereotypical female attributes. This is examined by interviewing eight employees in the male dominated construction industry and more specific the construction company NCC. The employees were asked questions to describe their female managers. The study shows that the majority of the examined managers primarily display characteristics typically assigned to women.

    Surveillance from a Post-Communist Perspective2018In: Surveillance & Society, ISSN 1477-7487, E-ISSN 1477-7487, Vol. 16, no 3, p. 269-276Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This special issue is the result of a research initiative that began in 2013, just before the annexation of Crimea by Russia. We, the guest editors, together with Pawel Waszkiewicz at the University in Warsaw, wanted to fill a gap in research on surveillance, which had at that time not yet addressed post-communist societies to any great extent. Today the situation is slightly different, but the need for further research is still pressing. It is therefore with great pleasure that we present a collection of five research articles by both senior and early-stage researchers, as well as a postscript by Professor Emeritus Maria Los, who is one of the few researchers who has written extensively on surveillance-related issues from a post-communist perspective. Below we introduce the special issue with a conceptual overview of post-communist research and its connections to surveillance studies.

    Architectures of Life-Building in the Twentieth Century: Russia, Germany, Sweden2018Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The modernist concept of life-building as an architectural method for improving the conditions of everyday life originated in Europe during the 1920s. This book explores three modes of functionalism by way of a comparative analysis of both the theoretical discourses and architectural practices associated with functionalism in Russia, Germany, and Sweden. These three countries made significant contributions to the application of functionalism within mass housing construction, the overarching purpose of which was to transform the traditional home into a rational living space.

    This study provides both close readings of foundational modernist texts as well as an empirical study of the avant-garde heritage in Russia, Germany, and Sweden. As a special case study, a visual analysis of IKEA catalogues is presented, the purpose of which is to provide an illustrated history of modernist aesthetics within mass-produced living spaces, from the era of functionalism up to the present day.

    "Ta mer, vi är inte i Sverige": En kvalitativ studie om svenska unga vuxnas risktagande av drogturism i Barcelona2018Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Drug tourism is a concept that have gained popularity in the biggest and most popular european tourist destinations as of lately. It has even gained attention in popular media about how the modern youths consumption of illegal substances have grown lately and how research proves that the consumption of these illegal substances often duplicate when they travel. The purpose of this studie is to analyze what underlying factors contribute to swedish youth decision for travelling to Barcelona for the specific reason of consuming illegal substances. The writters of this essay are going to use qualititve methods in form of deep interwievs with people that direclty have participated in these form of tourism (drugtourism), mainly to have a deeper understanding about this phenomenon. To analyze the collected empirical matherial the writters are going to use selected previous research that focuses on this phenomenon. Because of the little research that has been done about this subject in Sweden and the impact it has had on the swedish youth almost all collected precious research is from outside of Sweden. The authors will also use two theoretical starting points to shape and gain an understanding of how the phenomenon affects the interviewed ones. The results in this studie shows that the swedish youth travell to Barcelona to consume illegal substances because of the availability the city presents when it comes to finding these illegal substances. It appears that additional contributing factors such as anonymity and freedom are produced among the individuals involved in this form of tourism.
