    Facilitating migrant youths’ inclusion into Swedish sport clubs in underserved areas2024In: Nordic Social Work Research, ISSN 2156-857X, E-ISSN 2156-8588, Vol. 14, no 1, p. 121-135Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish sports movement has gained an increasingly profound role in addressing social issues. One such issue is migrant youths’ social inclusion in underserved areas, and the underlying assumption is that sports clubs fulfill an important function here. However, retaining migrant youths in organized sports in these areas is difficult, and sports clubs often struggle with the resources to satisfy social policies. This paper explored the practices of 12 experienced Swedish sports clubs to illuminate the strategies deployed to recruit and retain migrant youths in underserved areas. Sports clubs were conceptualized as local development-initiatives according to Rothman’s community work classification, and the results were analysed with Bronfenbrenner’s Person-Process-Context-Time framework. The results show that sports clubs are run by compassionate and locally embedded individuals, but that the representatives’ different forms of capital and sensitivity differentiate their success. Three processes are stressed as essential. Clubs need to establish robust relationships with migrant youths’ parents. Secondly, since clubs are contingent on driven, but strained, individuals, it is imperative to recruit and utilize (migrant) youth trainers. Finally, sports clubs must work in tandem with important institutions, such as the school. In summary, sports clubs must adopt creative strategies, and have resilience, time, and support. These findings indicate that enabling migrant youths’ inclusion into sports requires holistic solutions.

    The principle of help to self-help in Sweden: A study of representations and norms regarding old age and care needs and their moral and ethical implications for care work2020In: Nordic Social Work Research, ISSN 2156-857X, E-ISSN 2156-8588, Vol. 10, no 3, p. 270-282Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this article is to describe and analyse the principle of help to self-help in care work and the representations of and norms on old age and care needs supporting the principle in relation to moral and ethical aspects. The article is based on the results of a study conducted in a small rural Swedish municipality in 2006–2008 and a study conducted in a big city in 2014 and 2015. The material consists of interviews with first line managers, care workers and care receivers. The results of this article show that the principle of help to self-help in the care of older people exists in both public sector home care in a small municipality and a home care system in a major city with customer choice system. The results also show that representations of and norms on old age and care needs highlight the normative value of help to self-help, which has both ethical and moral dimensions. In the care of older people this is translated into care receivers maintaining their mental and physical strength which challenges the value of care receivers’ self-determination.

    Community work at the urban periphery: searching for legitimacy2024In: Nordic Social Work Research, ISSN 2156-857X, E-ISSN 2156-8588Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The restructuring of public welfare provision across Europe in recent decades has brought new actors into the governance of welfare and social work practice, including non-profit organizations. In Sweden, the role of non-profit organizations in social service provision has been less significant than that of profit-oriented enterprises. Despite a continuing shift towards greater welfare pluralism, non-profit organizations engaging in social work find themselves struggling to find their own spaces and legitimacy. This article examines two organizations engaging in community work at the peripheries of the Stockholm metropolitan area, focusing on how they understand, perform, and communicate their roles as both civil society actors and social work providers. Our data demonstrate that the organizations have developed different legitimation strategies related to their understanding of what type of organization they are and what type of work they do. Furthermore, despite some differences in their perceptions of the underpinnings of community work, both organizations make an important contribution to developing community work in Sweden as a collective practice binding local communities together with mutual support and the sharing of knowledge and identity.

    Suburban commons: the rise of suburban social movements and new urban commons in marginalized neighbourhoods in Stockholm2022In: Nordic Social Work Research, ISSN 2156-857X, E-ISSN 2156-8588, Vol. 12, no 2, p. 284-297Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish universal welfare state has transformed since the 1990s into a mixed welfare model with increasing deregulation, recommodification, and reverse distribution from the public to the private sector where capital and influence have concentrated. In major cities such as Stockholm, this has resulted in a polarization where groups in the city centre and residential areas have accumulated wealth and resources while groups in marginalized suburbs and neighbourhoods have faced increasing social exclusion and marginalization. Public sector social work has long focused on individual case work, whereas this development calls for increasing community work initiatives. In this article, we analyse the rise of urban social movements mobilizing for inclusion, influence, and social justice as important aspects of contemporary community work in the Swedish urban periphery. Through analysis of semi-structured interviews with community workers and activists as well as media articles, reports, and web-based materials, the results show how the mobilization of the organization Megafonen has contributed to the development of new social institutions and urban commons.
