    De virala experterna: Legitimitetsbaser på sociala medieri början av covid-19-pandemin2023Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Lyssna på experterna” är ett ofta upprepat mantra, men vad detta innebär är inte alltid självklart. Covid-19-pandemin synliggjorde svårigheterna i att få tag i och tillämpa expertkunskaper. Pandemins första skede präglades av stor efterfrågan på information. Många sökte sig då till sociala medier, där tidigare okända individer snabbt blev betrodda med att ge råd – de virala experterna.

    I denna rapport analyserar vi 272 Facebookinlägg, författade av 136 individer, som delades flitigt under våren 2020. Vi kartlägger inläggens egenskaper och författarnas bakgrund, men också vilken legitimitetsbas, dvs. svaret på frågan ”varför ska ni lyssna på mig?”, som författarna åberopat.

    De virala experterna har vitt skilda bakgrunder, men deras inlägg visar alla tecken på anpassning till en ny social medielogik, där budskap får mer legitimitet om de använder känslomässigt och förenklande språk, bildmaterial och hashtaggar. Personlig erfarenhet eller bara stor tilltro till det egna omdömet är också mer förekommande legitimitetsbaser på sociala medier, jämfört med den teoretiska expertkunskap som brukar underbygga expertuttalanden i etablerade medier.

    Viral expertis kan vara en demokratisk tillgång: oväntade aktörer kan engagera sig i det offentliga samtalet och gör att nya röster blir hörda. Traditionella experter kan, genom att anpassa budskap till den sociala medielogiken, också nå ut med viktiga budskap till publiker som annars inte skulle lyssnat. På så sätt kan man stärka forskningskommunikationens genomslag. Men viral expertis kan också utgöra en fara för demokratin. När gängse mekanismer för att värdera experters legitimitet sätts ur spel, riskerar förvirring uppstå och komplicera spridningen av korrekt information, särskilt i krisers initiala skeden där osäkerheten är stor.

    How to blame and make a difference: perceived responsibility and policy consequences in two Swedish pro-migrant campaigns2021In: Policy sciences, ISSN 0032-2687, E-ISSN 1573-0891, Vol. 54, no 1, p. 41-62Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we explore the assumption that blame-attribution can be an effective rhetorical strategy for non-elite interest groups who want power holders to be attentive to their demands. Through a qualitative analysis of two pro-migrant campaigns led by grassroot activists in Sweden, one taking place in 2005 and the other in 2017, we offer a nuanced empirical examination of non-elite initiated blame-games. We show how perceived responsibility influences these blame-games, and explore which policy consequences might emanate from them. We demonstrate that blame-making, under certain conditions, can be a successful strategy to gain policy influence, but that this strategy is conditioned by the complexity and transparency of the institutional arrangements of accountability within the policy sector. The focus on non-elite blame-making in order to change policies enables us to contribute to the theoretical discussion on the relationship between anticipatory and reactive forms of blame-avoidance behaviours, and to discuss the democratic implications of blame-games in both shorter and longer time perspectives. One implication of this study is that successful non-elite blame-making at one point in time actually can lower the chances of successful blame-making in the future.

    Inscriptions without boundaries: how action at a distance is enabled on social media2021In: Accounting, Auditing and Accountability Journal, ISSN 0951-3574, Vol. 34, no 9, p. 57-79Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to explore the role of inscriptions on social media in enabling action at a distance. The purpose is addressed by investigating how and by what mechanisms inscriptions on social media can shape action at a distance.

    Design/methodology/approach: We conduct a qualitative analysis of the Facebook page of a crowdfunded grassroots initiative, where the founders and their stakeholders interact.

    Findings: We identify two mechanisms by which inscriptions on social media can shape action at a distance: a flow of micro-level inscriptions and a joint stabilisation of inscriptions. By signalling achievement, creating a sense of closeness and highlighting powerful explanations, these mechanisms guide what action at a distance is taken and by whom. Action thereby becomes a mutual exercise between centres of calculation and distant peripheries, highly intertwined with the stability of inscriptions. The two mechanisms indicate the importance of the boundaryless nature of the inscriptions in shaping action at a distance.

    Originality/value: Our findings indicate new forms of inscriptions and, consequently, of novel conditions for action at a distance. These insights add to the literature on Web 2.0 and accounting, which has mainly revolved around the relationship between centres of calculation and distant peripheries that act upon each other rather than around the inscriptions that enable such action.

    Mångreligiositet och sekularitet i svenskt polisväsende, vård, skola och offentlig förvaltning: en forskningsöversikt2021Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Under de senaste decennierna har Sverige genomgått stora demografiska och politiska förändringar. Tillsammans har dessa inneburit att Sverige idag samtidigt är ett av Europas mest sekulariserade och mest mångreligiösa länder. Den snabba demografiska förändring Sverige har genomgått har ställt många inför nya, stora och i vissa fall skyndsamma kunskapsbehov samtidigt är forskningen om situationen delvis eftersatt. I denna rapport identifieras hur den nya situationen relaterar till det lagstadgade uppdrag som svenskt polisväsende, vård, skola och offentlig förvaltning har. Den forskning som gjorts inom dessa områden sammanfattas och de viktigaste forskningsbehoven identifieras.

    Accountable and Thus Legitimate?: A Comparative Study of Philanthropists2020In: Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly, ISSN 0899-7640, E-ISSN 1552-7395, Vol. 49, no 6, p. 1210-1232Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article takes a comparative qualitative approach to explore the intertwined external accountability and legitimacy attempts of independently wealthy philanthropists. By comparing accountability forums and institutional logics stated by philanthropists, it is investigated to whom they are externally accountable and how they legitimate their controversial funding of public goods. The study compares the external accountability and legitimacy attempts of philanthropists with that of public agencies, corporations, and fundraising-dependent nonprofits. Empirically, this is a cross-sectional study of funders supporting human embryonic stem cell research in either California or Sweden. The study shows that it is through local isomorphism, rather than any specific accountability forum or institutional logic, that philanthropists are accountable and thus legitimate their giving. This is in contrast to other types of funders, which are more similar within each form when comparing accountability forums across societies, and more similar within societies in their usage of institutional logics, with certain patterned statements. In addition, philanthropists in both societies are more detached than any other type of funder as regards both specific patient populations and the general electorate. This finding raises questions on what philanthropists’ private funding for public purposes actually entails. © The Author(s) 2020.

    Civilsamhället och asylpolitiken, del 1: Vittnesseminarium om Påskuppropet och Flyktingamnesti 20052020Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I ett demokratiskt samhälle spelar ett levande och aktivt civilsamhälle en avgörande roll. Men vad krävs för att civilsamhället ska lyckas bidra till förändring av politiken? Vilka kampanjstrategier är framgångsrika för att få politiker att lyssna? Hur stor roll spelar den allmänna politiska debatten för vilka kampanjkrav som lyckas? Vilken roll spelar mediers bevakning och informationskanaler för civilsamhällets organisering och politiska påverkansmöjligheter?

    Denna rapport innehåller utskriften av ett tre timmar långt vittnesseminarium som hölls den 22 mars 2018 på Södertörns högskola där sex företrädare för de civilsamhällsorganisationer som tillsammans drivit kampanjerna Flyktingamnesti 2005 och Påskuppropet 2004–2005 diskuterar och berättar om sitt arbete. Rapporten ger nya infallsvinklar på svensk migrationspolitik och civilsamhällets roll i den, både i ett historiskt och nutida perspektiv.

    Abstract [sv]

    Denna rapport innehåller en utskrift av ett vittnesseminarium som hölls på Södertörns högskola den 8 november 2018 om det civilsamhällsengagemang som ägde rum åren 2015–2018 till förmån för ensamkommande ungdomar, främst från Afghanistan. Det är en fortsättning på temat migrationspolitiken och civilsamhällets roll där det första seminariet handlade om Påskuppropet och Flyktingamnesti 2005.

    Vid seminariet vittnade sex representanter från olika delar av civilsamhället om sitt engagemang för de ensamkommande ungdomarna och om händelseförloppet som ledde till stiftandet av den tillfälliga gymnasielagen. Dessutom beskrevs och diskuterades vilken roll sociala medier spelade för civilsamhällets organisering under den aktuella perioden.

    Organizing service delivery on social mediaplatforms?: Loosely organized networks, co-optation, and the welfare state2020In: Public Management Review, ISSN 1471-9037, E-ISSN 1471-9045, Vol. 22, no 6, p. 857-876Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Recent crisis situations have witnessed a growing number of loosely organised networks (LONs) that deliver welfare services and employ social media platforms to coordinate their actions. Focusing on the 2015 ‘refugee crisis’ in Sweden, we explore the role of LONs in Swedish resilience policy. In the absence of standardised heuristics characteristic of established organizations, the LONs refer to social media for generating a common stance on the policy problem and their relation to the state. The study indicates challenges in governing LONs, showing that although a LON may become co-opted by the state, this co-optation may lead to its demise.

    The populist allure of social media activism: Individualized charismatic authority2020In: Organization, ISSN 1350-5084, E-ISSN 1461-7323, Vol. 27, no 3, p. 431-440Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article argues that the type of individualized social media activism that has been conceptualized as ‘connective action’ has affinities to populism, and may have detrimental consequences for democratic procedures and the bureaucratic structures that enable them. We trace the normative allure of individualized digital engagement to the libertarian roots of techno-utopianism and argue that this, in combination with a form of mobilization fueled by digital enthusiasm, has potentially dire democratic and organizational consequences. Digital enthusiasm generated on social media platforms entails self-infatuation, here conceptualized as a form of individualized charismatic authority in the Weberian sense. This individualized form of charismatic authority is fundamentally focused on personalized engagement, and simultaneously interconnected through the technological affordances of social media platforms. If individualized charismatic authority becomes institutionalized as a legitimate and predominant manner of organizing, it may have large-scale implications for societal organizing at large by promoting populism. In sum, we argue that digital enthusiasm not only provides democratic opportunities for protest and contention in civil society, but that the fickleness of the individualized charismatic authority it generates may also put democratic procedures and respect for bureaucratic structures at risk.

    Social media and civil society organizations: Exploring the institutionalization of positive emotional vocabulary2018Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores how positive emotional vocabulary used on social media potentially alters rationalized and institutionalized ways to manage and account for civil society organizations. Based on a study of Swedish civil society, our initial findings indicate that these changes entail: 1) a replacement of previous forms of engagement based on shared negative experiences or contentious politics by strong positive emotional content, both in terms of management and accounting 2) the increasing importance of emotional language competence in terms of the usage of positive emotional vocabulary to manage both staff, board members, and volunteers 3) the increased possibility to express and be open about emotional states in the workplace, which is perceived as both enabling and challenging for managers. In sum, the paper points to an inflation in the usage of positive emotional vocabulary in established civil society organizations, indicating an emerging institutionalization process of positive emotional vocabulary as a means to organize civil society.

    Fundraising as a theatrical event2017In: International Journal of Nonprofit & Voluntary Sector Marketing, ISSN 1465-4520, E-ISSN 1479-103X, no 4, article id e1594Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper introduces and elaborates the notion of fundraising as a theatrical event. By exploring the theatrical setup, as well as social context, of two elite fundraising events that took place at almost the same time and place and for the same cause, the authors disentangle different components that are at play in a fundraising event. The paper shows that a fundraising event needs to align sensory, artistic, and symbolic theatrical levels to convey the desirability of the fundraising cause. In addition, not only the economic but also the social and cultural capitals of the hosts of the event may be of relevance to the fundraising.

    The prevalence and durability of emotional enthusiasm: connective action and charismatic authority in the 2015 European refugee crisis2017Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Departing from Bennett & Segerberg’s (2013) notion of personal action frames, this paper investigates how ad-hoc networks tend to allow for a more individualised form for engagement than established organisations, and what the implications are of this individualization. The paper is based on around 90 Swedish Facebook groups and pages, belonging to both established civil society organisations and ad-hoc networks, all aimed at aiding refugees during September-December 2015, containing about 9 000 posts. We analyse the content and frequency of posts, as well as interactions, and the overlap between different groups, especially uncovering differences in organisational dynamics and mobilising power, using qualitative and quantitative content and network analysis. Our study shows that affordances of networked individualism (Castells 2007) and partial organisations (Ahrne & Brunsson 2011) create fast and large-scale mobilisation of individuals, but also creates instable and sensitive mobilisation, resulting in less sustainable organising. Ad-hoc networks harness the need of individuals’ to manifest altruism without requiring long-term or systematic engagement, thus in some ways targeting the needs of the individual online community participants themselves as much as those of the refugees. The paper concludes that ad-hoc networks are more sensitive to "viral" trends in media attention, whereas civil society organisations have a stable level of engagement on a long-term scale. However, both types of organisations have a hard time to sustain large-scale individual engagement for a longer period of time. Whereas many studies concerning the 2015 refugee crisis have focused on hate speech and anti-refugee sentiments, we show that also pro-refugee online activism is heavily dependent on media trends.

    Stepping Into and Out of the Void: Funding Dynamics of Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research in California, Sweden, and South Korea2016In: Stem Cell Reviews, ISSN 1550-8943, E-ISSN 1558-6804, Vol. 12, no 1, p. 8-14Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Nonprofit organizations and philanthropists stepped into a funding void caused by controversies over public funding of human embryonic stem cell (hESC) research. Based on interviews of 83 representatives of 53 funders, we examine the motivations and accountability structures of public agencies, corporations, fundraising dependent nonprofit organizations and philanthropic organizations that funded hESC research in three jurisdictions: California, Sweden, and South Korea. While non-traditional forms of funding are essential in the early stages of research advancement, they are unreliable for the long timeframes necessary to advance cell therapies. Such funding sources may enter the field based on high expectations, but may exit just as rapidly based on disappointing rates of progress.

    Free to Conform: A Comparative Study of Philanthropists’ Accountability2015Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Those who are very wealthy may also be extremely free. Independently wealthy philanthropists epitomize this type of freedom. They seem to be able to act in whichever way they please, as long as they respect the limits of the law. Their freedom also implies that they do not experience as much accountability as other funders. Considering philanthropists’ ambitions as policymakers, and given their imposition of performance demands on their grantees, their accountability is relevant to investigate. However, there are no comprehensive comparative studies of philanthropists’ accountability, and there is mainly anecdotal evidence of a lack of accountability being derived from their independent wealth.

    This dissertation is a study of philanthropists’ accountability. I compare their experienced and exhibited accountability to that of other funders within societies, and I also compare philanthropists’ accountability across societies. I investigate whether philanthropists’ independent wealth influences to whom they are accountable, for what they are accountable, and how they are accountable. To learn about these topics, I examine their accountability relationships, their accountability mechanisms, and how they justify their potentially controversial funding of human embryonic stem cell research. Across these dimensions, I study their legal, financial, hierarchical, peer, professional, political, and fiduciary/social accountability. Empirically, I make a cross-sectional comparison of philanthropists to other funders of human embryonic stem cell research within and across three welfare regimes - liberal California, social democratic Sweden, and statist South Korea. I compare the accountability of independently wealthy philanthropists to that of public agencies, corporations, and fundraising dependent nonprofits. The empirical materials include 101 structured interviews with open-ended questions covering 51 funding organizations, as well as questionnaires explored in ANOVA and social network analysis.

    The study indicates that philanthropists experience and exhibit less accountability than other funders in some ways, in some contexts. By developing and using a framework to analyze their accountability, I show that philanthropists’ accountability is patterned within the societies in which they fund, and it differs greatly across societies. In California, philanthropists enact themselves as free actors, whereas in Sweden they enact a moral identity as funders of science. In South Korea, there is no clear boundary between philanthropic and corporate accountability. My results point to the contextual limits of philanthropists’ accountability. By enacting their moral identity in a way that conforms to local norms, philanthropists simultaneously retain and enable their continued freedom. In terms of their accountability, philanthropists are free to conform, and they become free by conforming.

    The Policy Paradox of Philanthropy: Accountability Mechanisms, Legitimacy and Policy Influence2009Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    By analyzing philanthropists as policy network actors, the paper investigates contradictory analytical indications for how their lack of accountability mechanisms may affect their ability to influence policymaking. Philanthropists’ lack of accountability mechanisms may enable them to strategically purchase legitimacy, which may increase their policy influence. Paradoxically, philanthropists’ lack of accountability mechanisms may also decrease their democratic legitimacy, which may decrease their policy influence. A model is conceptualized for testing this policy paradox of philanthropy.
