Abstract [en]

Before the new world became a concept related to the upswing of wines from Australia, Latin America, New Zealand, South Africa and the United States, occasionally, wines from these countries could be sold in countries like Sweden. One such point in time was during WWII, when importing wines from Europe became impossible and a very short window of trade opened-up between Argentina, Chile and Sweden. This paper partially describes this story, based on the scarce sources found at the archive of the former Museum of Wines and Spirits in Stockholm. The purpose of the paper is to shed light on the amount of wine imports from Argentina and Chile during the trade window between Sweden, Argentina and Chile caused by WWII. Some sources analyzed are sales statistics of the Swedish wholesale and import monopoly Aktiebolaget Vin & Spritcentralen, price lists of the regional alcohol monopoly in Stockholm (Stockholmssystemet) and by analyzing the labels of the wines found in the archive. Some of the questions to be answered are: How much wine from Argentina and Chile was sold during the studied period? Who were the exporters? Why was this trade window opened and closed?

Abstract [en]

Storytelling is a powerful marketing tool. It represents a form of content marketing that appeals to the imagination of the consumer. We have studied the use of storytelling by Georgian wine makers. As a wine country, the former Soviet republic of Georgia has a compelling story to tell. The country represents the cradle of wine and has an unbroken 8000 year old history of wine production. In addition to the story of the origin of Georgian wine, the country is still producing wine in a tradition that dates from the antiquity. The Qvevry production method is still in use in Georgia and produces wine with a very characteristic taste. Furthermore, some of the vineyards in Georgia has a long history and is related to historical buildings often depicted on the label of the wine bottle. Finally, the grapes are originally from Georgia and has been grown here for thousands of years. We have followed four vineyards and their history in order to depict how storytelling is used the wine industry in Georgia.

Abstract [en]

This article highlights the motivational factors behind consumers’ and tourists’ decisions to buy local artisan cheese in Jämtland (Sweden). Empirically, the case itself diverts from the typical Franco-Mediterranean case in which both the actions of producers and consumers are embedded in historical, long-term culinary traditions and territorial features, nor is it the typical farmers’ market or another market-driven direct produce system. The main purpose is to shed light on the motivational factors behind the purchasing decision of consumers and tourists by studying the attributes that consumers embody in the products. The article is based on two consumer surveys/short interviews, the first conducted in June 2012 and the second in February 2017. The results were tested against/related to the wider local food discussion conceptualized through four types of attributes. Namely, intrinsic and extrinsic attributes; post-modernity and environmental attributes; geographical and territorial attributes; and local and rural development attributes. The results in this article clearly show that consumers value a combination of different attributes from both market-driven direct produce systems and close typicity systems. Therefore, the construction of proximity from the point of view of the consumer can be derived from a complex set of attributes and motivational factors not normally highlighted in the localized food discussion

Abstract [en]

The Stockholm Archipelago is classified as one of the less developed rural areas in Sweden. Although the Archipelago is located close to Stockholm, local inhabitants and businesses live in the shadow of the capital city. Over the last decades, a number of policy initiatives and development projects have been launched to support a sustainable socio-economic development in the Stockholm Archipelago, not the least by trying to decrease the dependence on the summer season for the creation of local income. But results have not been as positive as expected. In addition, it seems that inhabitants in some islands have managed to create a more dynamic environment and have achieved some successes, while inhabitants in other islands are still struggling with the same problems as they were 20 years ago. These differences cannot easily be dismissed as a result of differences in physical infrastructure.

By conducting a comparative qualitative and systematic study of the conditions for creating a sustainable socio-economic development in various islands in the Stockholm Archipelago this study will answer the following questions: What makes some communities in the archipelago vibrant and resilient and others less so? Which are the variations in pre-conditions for a vibrant and resilient development? What have previous policy initiatives and projects succeeded with? And when have they failed?

The article is based in an on-going case study in which project and policy evaluation reports have been analysed. In addition, a large number of in-depth interviews with business owners in the Archipelago, with policy officers in various involved municipalities and project coordinators have been conducted.

Abstract [es]

Este artículo hace énfasis en el impacto que la planta hidroeléctrica Alto Maipo tiene en el sistema agroalimentario localizado en el Cajón del Maipo, Chile. La pregunta a responder es: Que tipo de impacto/externalidad positiva o negativa ha ejercido la construcción de la planta Alto Maipo sobre la transhumancia en el area? Una importante conclusion del estudio piloto es que a pesar de que se realizó una extensa investigación previa la construcción del Alto Maipo, los posibles impactos sobre la transhumancia y por lo tanto en antiguos sistemas agroalimentarios localizados en el área han sido altamente descuidados. Hasta la fecha, los resultados muestran cómo un impacto exógeno en las instituciones locales, que unian el paisaje, las personas, los animales y los productos han sido alterados a través de la creación de oportunidades alternativas de ingresos y han forzado el cambio. Los acontecimientos actuales generaron oportunidades de ingreso alternativas en el corto plaxo, pero tambien generaron impactos negativos de largo plazo en los modos de vida  y en la naturaleza.

Abstract [sv]

I detta kapitel presenteras en genomgång av några av de viktigaste bidragen inom fältet genus och företagande i Sverige. Genusperspektivet utgör en av samhällets viktigaste organiseringsprinciper, medan företagandet ses som viktigt för att främja tillväxt, skapa arbetstillfällen, mm. Att studera genus och företagande i kombination är därför viktigt för att förstå de krafter som formar vår historia, vår samtid och vår framtid. Detta forskningsfält fokuserar på studien av företagaren, entreprenören, företaget, företagandet, företagsrelevanta organisationer, branscher, samt affärssystem och hur dessa påverkas av genusfrågor och genuskontrakt. Det handlar om formella och informella institutionella arrangemang som påverkar, belyser och förklarar skillnader i förutsättningar för kvinnors och mäns företagande, samt de socioekonomiska konsekvenserna av densamma. Att använda ett genusperspektiv är viktigt eftersom det är en av samhällets viktigaste organiseringsprinciper. Genusordningen sätter ett avtryck på både offentlig och privat verksamhet, på arbetsdelning i och utanför hemmet, på utbildning, på resursfördelning, mm. Genusfrågor är inbäddade i en mängd olika institutionella och kontextuella förhållanden och påverkas exempelvis även av en klassdimension och exempelvis av etnicitet. Därför är intersektionalitet både ett vanligt och viktigt angreppssätt inom genusstudier i allmänhet och inom studier av genus och företagande i synnerhet. Idag omfattar därför forskningen även studier om kvinnliga och manliga invandrares företagande och villkoren för desamma men även hur avregleringen av den offentliga sektorn har slussat låginkomsttagare och då främst kvinnor inom vård och omsorg till lågvinstföretagande. Kapitlet lyfter också den kritik som rests under senare år och som handlar om att fältet nu har mognat och att det därför finns ett behov av att gå vidare mot en mer kritisk och problematiserande forskning. Detta skulle kunna uppnås genom att förbättra och öka kontextualiseringen inom forskningen, genom att problematisera statens stöd gentemot kvinnors företagande, att analysera den offentliga sektorns omstrukturering, samt att i praktiken främja entreprenörskap och företaganism genom utbildning. 

Abstract [en]

This chapter presents a review of some of the most important contributions in the field of gender and entrepreneurship in Sweden. The gender perspective is one of society's most important organizing principles, while entrepreneurship is seen as important for promoting growth, creating jobs, etc. The study of gender and entrepreneurship in combination is therefore important to understand the forces that shape our history, our present and our future. This field of research focuses on the study of the entrepreneur,  enterprise, entrepreneurship, business relevant organizations, industries, and business and how these are affected by gender issues and gender contracts. It involves formal and informal institutional arrangements that influence, highlights and explains differences in conditions for women and men in employment and in their roles as business owners, as well as the socio-economic consequences of the same. Gender orders put an imprint on both the public and private sectors, the division of labor inside and outside the home, in education, in the allocation of resources in society, etc. Gender issues are embedded in a variety of institutional and contextual circumstances and for instance also of a dimension and such class of ethnicity. Therefore intersectionality both a common and important approaches in gender studies in general and in the study of gender and entrepreneurship in particular. Today therefore research on female and male immigrant entrepreneurship and conditions of the same are becoming more frequent, but also how the deregulation of the public sector has funneled low-income people, mainly women in health care to low-profit businesses. The chapter also raises the recent criticism raised about how this research field has now matured and a need to move towards more critical and problem oriented research is needed. The critical voices argue that improving and increasing the contextualization of  research by problematizing the state's support to women in business, to analyze the restructuring of the public sector restructuring, which in practice promotes entrepreneurship and entrepreneurialism is a viable way to address current shortcomings in current research.

Abstract [sv]

Forskning om genus och företagande/entreprenörskap, är ett brett forskningsfält som utvecklades i skärningspunkten mellan å ena sidan teorier om entreprenörskap och å andra sidan genus och feministisk teori och där företaget, arbetsmarknaden, familjen och staten är de mest centrala elementen. Genusperspektivet utgör en av samhällets viktigaste organiseringsprinciper, medan företagandet ses som viktigt för att främja tillväxt, skapa arbetstillfällen, mm. Att studera genus och företagande i kombination är därför viktigt för att förstå de krafter som formar vår historia, vår samtid och vår framtid.

Denna bok har sin utgångspunkt i nämnda forskningsfält och är resultatet av en workshop som organiserades av forskningscentrat EnterForum, på Södertörns högskola under december 2015. Temat för workshopen var Politik, Företagande och Genus. Med utgångspunkt från ett genusperspektiv analyseras hur ekonomisk utveckling och samhällsprocesser har lett till uppkomsten av nya näringar, samt hur teknik och politik i samverkan kan leda till att kvinnor trängs undan i vissa näringar, om genus påverkar företagens möjligheter att överleva på lång sikt, kvinnliga företagares syn på kvinnors företagande, hur socialt entreprenörskap kan vara katalysator för kvinnors rättigheter, tillika hur samhällsentreprenörskap kan leda till såväl politiskt inflytande som breddade försörjningsmöjligheter, samt vilka utmaningar och möjligheter kvinnliga hästföretagares i tätortsnära verksamheter möter i sin dagliga verksamhet.

Abstract [en]

Research on gender and entrepreneurship, is a broad field of research developed in the intersection between theories about entrepreneurship and gender and feminist theory. Within this research field labor, family and the state are the key elements. The gender perspective is one of society's most important organizing principles and entrepreneurship is seen as important for promoting growth, creating jobs, etc. The study of gender and entrepreneurship in combination is therefore important to understand the forces that shape our history, our present and our future.

This book is the result of a workshop organized by the Research Center Enter Forum, at Södertörn University in December 2015. The theme of the workshop was Policy, Entrepreneurship and Gender. Starting from a gender perspective, the papers presented analyzed how economic development and social processes has led to the emergence of new industries, and how technology and policy in cooperation may outcrowd women’s participation in certain industries. Additional topics are the impact of gender on firms ability to survive in the long term; How women entrepreneurs see women in business; How social entrepreneurship can be the catalyst for women's rights; And the the challenges and opportunities of female equine entrepreneurs in urban businesses encounter in their daily activities
