    Hotellbranschens roll i kampen mot sexhandeln: en studie om det sociala ansvarstagandet bland hotell i Sverige2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The tourism industry is continuously growing all over the world and the hotel industry is the most important stakeholder in the touristic system. Therefore it is of utmost importance that it takes its major role and thus its social responsibility seriously. The concept of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has gained an increasing role in the hotel industry in recent years. An increased awareness of social responsibility has grown and studies show that it has a positive effect on the company. One social problem the hotel industry needs to face and handle is sex trade. In Sweden there is a sex purchase act that says it's illegal to buy sex and a procuring act which means that you can not rent out a room with the knowledge that sex trade is in progress. Hence, the hotels in Sweden are obliged to deal with this problem, while at the same time it has to do with a general social responsibility. The purpose of the study is to find out how Swedish hotels counteract and prevent sex trade through their social responsibility. What has been studied is what concrete strategies the hotels use, how the work against sex trade can affect the image of a hotel and what effects it has on hotels, the guests and the local community. Based on these topics, three questions have been formulated and answered. The methodological approach consisted of qualitative interviews, document studies and a quantitative questionnaire survey. Three different hotel companies and relevant collaborators were selected to answer the research questions. The result shows that the work has a positive effect both on the hotels, the guests and the local community. The importance of staff training is central in order to handle the problem in the best possible way, as well as cooperation between the different actors in the local community. The choice of social responsibility regarding sex trade in the hotels also has a positive effect on the image of a hotel which leads to customer loyalty thus benefiting the company. Continued research in the field is recommended since there is a lack of previous research on sex trade that concerns the hotel industry.

    Mötesanläggningars arbete för en hållbar utveckling: En fallstudie om hur tre mötesanläggningar i Stockholm arbetar hållbart utifrån ett socialt, ekonomiskt och miljömässigt perspektiv2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Through research and questionnaires, the paper reviews meeting and conference facilities from a broader perspective to deeper analyze its approach to become a more sustainable organization. The study reveals an examination to determine the consumers perspective and their demand for a greater sustainable improvement on three chosen meeting facilities in Stockholm. In order to answer the framing of the questions presented for the consumers, it was relevant to use both a quantitative and qualitative method. To further distinguish and analyze the different meeting facilities and their openness for sustainable development, three semistructured interviews were held with representatives from the selected examination objects. The writers completed another three interviews with informants who had visited any of the three meeting facilities, these interviews contributed to a broader consumer perspective on the sustainable growth increase for the facilities. The interviews where complemented with a survey that was formed to investigate the demand on a sustainable conference facility. The theories that have been used are based on how organizations reveal themselves in a sustainable work environment. The empirical material was set against the theory and deeply analyzed. Lastly the conclusion could be presented. The final result from the surveys showed that consumers are asking for greater efficiency and more sustainable aware meeting facilities. However, according to the surveys made by the consumers, it showed that the inquiry for a sustainable facility was not prioritized while in the process of election. In the study, one can conclude that all of the mentioning facilities has a sustainable development approach - including policies and guidelines to promote sustainability. However, challenges and difficulties could be identified, primarily the economic aspects, since certified products contribute to a higher cost for the businesses. Also, there was a lack of knowledge and commitment regarding the advantages of a sustainable business approach, which may be due to lack of organizational structure.

    Sinnesupplevelser och besöksmotiv på en maritim kulturarvsattraktion: En studie om internationella besökare och turisters upplevelser på Vasamuseet2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Att veta hur en internationell besökare eller eller turist upplever en maritim kulturarvsattraktion är av yttersta vikt för att kunna utveckla produkter som kan attrahera, tillfredsställa och ge en god upplevelse. Att veta vad det är som motiverar dem att besöka olika sorters attraktioner är viktig kunskap för att kunna komponera en komplett produkt.Syftet med studien är att kartlägga vilka sinnen som är de mest viktiga för internationella besökare och turisters upplevelse av en maritim kulturarvsattraktion samt att se vilka motiv de har till besöket.Uppsatsen har en kvantitativ forskningsmetodik i form av enkäter baserade på valda teorier och innehåller kvalitativa inslag då den har öppna frågor med svar som kan variera utifrån respondentens egna preferenser. Studiens resultat visade på att synsinnet är det mest vitala och att smaksinnet är det minst viktiga för de undersökta segmenten. Studiens resultat gällande besöksmotiv för de valda segmenten var ganska likvärdiga. De mest framträdande besöksmotivet för de valda segmenten var lärande- och utbildningssyfte. Det minst framträdande besöksmotivet var kunskapsutvecklande för arbete eller hobby.

    Heritage, Emotional Communities, and Imaginary Childhood Landscapes2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Employing examples from maritime heritage attractions in Sweden this paper aims to analyze how heritage stakeholders situate their enterprises through unreflective references to childhood. 

    A pioneer in the business of shipwreck tours started a heritage project by trying to convince investors and to create general interest in the planned tours by thoroughly referring to the thrilling documentary films about the Titanic by James Cameron. In contrast to the logistically complex and not-so-dramatic shipwreck tours that were eventually realized, the pioneer’s almost boyish appreciation of the adventurous qualities of Cameron’s documentary conveys feelings of childhood. Another stakeholder in the same project recalled a media event from his childhood when he talked about his early interest of old warships at the bottom of the sea. Thus he told me in an interview about how he absorbed the live television broadcast in the early 1960s of the rescue of the seventeenth-century warship Wasa in Stockholm. A third stakeholder, involved in another maritime heritage attraction, referred to his seemingly happy childhood as a contrast to contemporary selfishness and gentrification that, in his view, seem to threaten the surrounding landscapes of his heritage project located on a an island where he spent his childhood summers. 

    One of several hot-tempered arguments in David Lowenthal’s classic work The Heritage Crusade and the Spoils of History (1998) highlights the importance of childhood in the discourses of heritage. Since heritage merely seems to be a conspiratorial celebration of the past for Lowenthal, the childhood dimension is treated as a tool that the advocates of a specific heritage deliberately use to legitimize their version of bygone days. My research on heritage attractions confirms Lowenthal’s claim that childhood is a crucial element in heritage. Through analyses of texts and interviews pertaining to the maritime heritage attractions in Sweden, however, I contend that the use of more or less salient references to childhood could be understood as unreflective and habitual articulations. Nonetheless, even though the forms of heritage attractions may vary and the stakeholder’s so-called personality may differ, the imaginary landscapes of childhood appear to function as central prerequisites in the enterprises of heritage. However, to offer a deeper understanding of how the uses of childhood work within the logics of heritage, I propose that we move beyond Lowenthal’s critique. I propose that the references to childhood could be related to the concept of emotional communities, introduced by the historian Barbara Rosenwein (2006). The emotional community for her is a group in which people have a common stake, interests, values, and goals. These are reached through representations of emotion within in a system of norms and convention. The analysis focuses on the fabric of a social community and how emotions are discursively expressed; not unmediated feelings or emotions, which is the case in psychology. I believe that an analytical approach that makes use of the concept of emotional community with the focus on the different uses of the feeling of childhood is a way to deconstruct naturalizations, hierarchies, temporality, and spatiality within heritage.

    The Treacherous Grin Reflex: Commemorating the 1912 Olympics2014In: International Journal of the History of Sport, ISSN 0952-3367, E-ISSN 1743-9035, Vol. 31, no 5, p. 516-525Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The centenary of the 1912 Olympics in Stockholm included an array of diverse events. By the use of Maurice Halbwachs' concept of 'collective memory,' this essay takes a critical look at a few of the major events and official accounts pertaining to the commemorations of 2012. Methods used are ethnographic observations, at events, and qualitative analyses of texts, videos and photographs from the official records on events. A number of recurring and salient tropes used during the centenary resulted in an overall merry picture of the 1912 Olympics. Investigations on collective memory in Sweden usually tend to focus on party politics, especially the era of the hegemonic Swedish Social-Democrats. According to these studies the influence of sports seems negligible. In this study it is argued that the collective memory of major sports events, like the 1912 Olympics, in Sweden work as influential mental structures that can both confirm and challenge conventional Swedish meta-narratives.

    Att varumärka en destination: Fallet Vaxholm2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The increase in tourism for as well Sweden and Stockholm’s archipelago leads to a heightened competition between the different destinations in the archipelago. There’s also an increase in branding cities and places around the word as well as creating an identity for tourist to recognize themselves in a destination. The creation of a place brand and identity may be one of the most important factors for destinations competitiveness. This study examines how Vaxholm tries to create an identity to influence the destinations current image. The aim of the study is to examine how a destination brands itself to mediate an unified image. The aim is answered by three different question formulations, which contains how Vaxholm brands itself by the cooperation between different stakeholders and how this cooperation is working. The data has been gathered by seven different interviews in a qualitative fashion with members from the organisation “Destination Vaxholm”. The respondents where both members in the destination as well some of them hade a more leading role. The empirical evidence has later been analysed through previous theories written in the field, which makes the study deductive. The results show that Vaxholm is branding their destination through the organisation “Destination Vaxholm”. Through this forum the different stakeholders are allowed to develop and reinforce events and activities, which currently exist on the destination. The members have a will to create an identity and image, which tells a visitor that, its possible to travel to the destination all year around, not just during the summer. The organisation is newly created which makes the cooperation between stakeholders new and the trust between them hasn’t been questioned yet. The result also shows that the organisation is democratic and the will to cooperate between the different members is vital.

    Green Tourism BARCamp: Beyond All Recognition or the Emperor’s New Clothes?2017In: 26th Nordic Symposium of Tourism and Hospitality Research, October 4-6 2017, Falun, Sweden: Book of abstracts, Falun: Högskolan Dalarna, 2017, p. 61-62Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    A BarCamp is a “non-conference” where neither speaker, program events nor seminars are predetermined. The starting point is just a common theme on which the participants shape the content and the setup of the event. The actual agenda is decided on the spot on issues agreed among the participants. Everyone participates equally in conversations and discussions and they are supposed to generously share their knowledge and experience. This paper aims to evaluate if a BarCamp actually is a NEW type of meeting or if it just a face-lift of all already well-known meeting forms in the literature. The study is based on observations and empirical material from three BarCamps that took place in Sigtuna, Sweden, between 2013 and 2016. Although nominations and votes on different topics suggestions and/or interesting issues in the initial plenary-meeting will decide what to be brought up on the BarCamp, it can be questioned how objective and “free minded” such determination actually is? As in every field based on social relations; professions, titles and experience might have a crucial effect on how the agenda will be set. Economic and/or political intentions might play a role as well, and perhaps the personality of the participants. However, result points out that there is a difference between such meetings where the participants creates the agenda without preparation on beforehand and more traditional meetings as for example company-meetings, conferences, congresses, incentives and events.
