    Nio politiska begrepp: ideologi, språk och begreppsanalys2019Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Begrepp är centrala i allt politiskt tänkande och handlande: begrepp formar politiska program och dagordningar, men också maktförhållanden och världsbilder. Det går inte att förstå en politisk idéströmning om man inte tar hänsyn till de uttolkningar av begrepp som individgemenskapautonomi eller kultur som strömningen omfattar – men uttolkningarna skiftar från en ideologisk tradition till en annan.

    I denna bok utvecklas en modell för att förstå politisk-normativ begrepps­­bildning och här analyseras nio av de mest framträdande politiska begreppen. I anslutning till analysen diskuteras också villkoren för god kunskapsbildning i en tid som präglas av post-sanning, val­manipulation, sociala mediebubblor, elitförakt och politisk kunskaps­resistens. I ett utförligt appendix presenteras slutligen ett antal centrala västerländska ideologiska traditioner på ett överskådligt vis.

    The Asymmetrical Appropriation of Culture in Politics2018In: Journal of Conflict and Integration, ISSN 2586-0836, Vol. 2, no 1, p. 8-37Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article hinges on the notion that the location of the term ‘culture’ in political discourse and debate remains under-theorised, particularly regarding its covariation with political recognition. It is shown that arguments for culturally motivated justice, recognition, or redress of past wrongs may be expected only by marginalised groups, not by states or other powerful political agents –since these are not framed as cultural in the first place. This suggests that to become more powerful in modern politics one normally must become less cultural. The article ultimately aims to unpack this implicit logic of modern liberal democratic reasoning on culture.

    There is No Sacrum in it Any More: Revisiting Formalist Statehood and Religious/Civic Education on Baltic-Barents Borders2013In: Religion, State and Society, ISSN 0963-7494, E-ISSN 1465-3974, Vol. 41, no 4, p. 394-417Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Even under globalised and hyper-diverse cultural and social conditions, representative liberal democracy conceives of itself as non-involved in issues to do with ethics, faith and belief. Drawing on a formalist systemic state identity it advocates a neutralist, secularist, generalist and non-biased approach to education in state schools. Building on a current research project on religious/civic education in the Baltic-Barents area, this article argues that this self-image is flawed and that representative liberal democracy cannot avoid being ethically biased. There is thus, the article argues, a need to better frame our understanding of different modes of religious/civic education as well as the logic of ethical neutralism characteristic of contemporary democratic statehood. © 2013 © Taylor & Francis.

    Är rationell politisk styrning ens möjlig?: En snabbkritik av teknokratisk politisk filosofi2016In: Tidskrift för politisk filosofi, ISSN 1402-2710, Vol. 20, no 1, p. 10-22Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I modernt tänkande om staten finns en framträdande idé om att korrekt kunskap om politiska frågor och omständigheter bör vara vägledande för hur stater agerar och organiserar sig. Denna politiska epistemologi skyggar inför tanken att staters maktutövning och allmänna orientering skulle vara mer irrationell än rationell; vilket framträder klart i både Platons och den tidiga upplysningsfilosofins statsteori. Slutpunkten för resonemanget är att normativ bearbetning av politiska problem inte kan vara mer än ett korrelat till beslut som fattas på sakligt kvalificerade grunder.

    I denna text visas hur den rationalistiska politiska epistemologin bygger på radikalt felaktiga föreställningar om förhållandet mellan specialistkunskap om olika samhällssektorer och insikter och utsagor om politikens allmänna område. Bidraget avslutas med en översiktlig bedömning av Sveriges, respektive EU:s, grad av överensstämmelse med det teknokratiska styrideal som springer ur rationalismens politiska epistemologi.

    Explaining attitudes to secret surveillance in post-communist societies2018In: East European Politics, ISSN 2159-9165, E-ISSN 2159-9173, Vol. 34, no 2, p. 123-151Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article seeks to explain public attitudes to secret surveillance. Secret surveillance, for example wiretapping by intelligence agencies, is a controversial activity that affects fundamental civil liberties in any democratic system. Several large research projects have recently attempted to explain how people form opinions about surveillance in general. Thereby privacy concerns and institutional trust are often highlighted. In this article, we argue that earlier research uses a too narrow definition of attitudes to surveillance and that secret surveillance is particularly sensitive due to its opaque character. We introduce a two-dimensional concept that focuses on rationalistic and emotional responses to surveillance. Drawing on new data from three post-communist societies – Estonia, Poland, and Serbia – we show how institutional trust is mainly responsible for explaining acceptance of secret surveillance, but not how one feels about it. Instead, it is the level of ontological insecurity and privacy concerns that explains this second dimension. The results are theorised and implications for future research are discussed. © 2018 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group

    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.

    Anti-nuclear Movements in Discursive and Political Contexts​: Between Expert Voices and Local Protests2017Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Energy policies which maintain and extend nuclear energy are often opposed by anti-nuclear movements. Ambitious plans for developing nuclear energy in Russia, constructing a first nuclear plant in Poland, and lifting the ban on nuclear energy while allowing the replacement of old reactors in Sweden are examples of such energy policies. In contrast to the massive anti-nuclear movements of 1970-1990s, recent anti-nuclear movements are not organized as national protest campaigns. This thesis examines repertoires of anti-nuclear movements in the alleged “Nuclear Renaissance” period.  

    Repertoires of anti-nuclear actions are analyzed from the perspective of discursive and political opportunities of anti-nuclear movements. Discursive opportunities are enabled or hindered in the ordering of nuclear energy discourses, making messages and actions of social movements legitimate or illegitimate. While discourses of anti-nuclear movements are complex, official discourses of nuclear energy featuring arguments about profitability, energy security and environmental security in connection to nuclear energy development, resonate more with broader socio-political developments. Ordering of discourses is established in such a way that expert rhetoric becomes a standard approach for discussing nuclear energy, while references to emotions and subjective matters are unacceptable.

    Political contexts of anti-nuclear movements provide opportunities for environmental NGOs, one kind of actor in anti-nuclear movements, to pursue nonconfrontational strategies and engage in institutional channels, where they can contribute their expert knowledge. Concurrently, another actor in anti-nuclear movements, local anti-nuclear groups, on the one hand, share argumentative structures with environmental NGOs, and, on the other hand, attempt to mobilize local population and organize local protests. Due to limited opportunities for attention from the national media and focus on local issues, local protests are not featured in the national media, which is crucial for national protest actions.

    The differences in repertoires between these two kinds of actors and absence of actors opting for mass engagement provide insight into repertoires of anti-nuclear movements as a whole. This thesis demonstrates how discursive opportunities of social movements, which result from competing discourses of movements and their counter-agents, and political opportunities structure repertoires of actions of these movements.

    (Non-) Alternative energy transitions: Examining neoliberal rationality in official nuclear energy discourses of Russia and Poland2018In: Energy Research & Social Science, ISSN 2214-6296, E-ISSN 2214-6326, Vol. 41, p. 128-135Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract Neoliberal trends are a part of the sociopolitical contexts that shape present-day energy transitions. Economic arguments extensively used in nuclear energy discourses regarding the Nuclear Renaissance period may indicate that neoliberal trends have penetrated discussions about energy transitions. This article examines the presence of neoliberal rationality in the official nuclear energy discourses coming from Russia and Poland. These countries are interesting in respect to their relatively recent changes towards a market economy. Neoliberal rationality is defined in the article as the combination of market rationality, limited role of state, political consensus, governance structures and securitization, following Foucault and Brown. Discourse analysis of the energy policies and speeches of politicians that contain statements about nuclear energy development is carried out. The analysis confirms the significant presence of these themes in nuclear energy discourses as well as discourses reflecting the specificities of the two countries. The combination of the defining features of neoliberal rationality in official nuclear energy discourses seem to leave limited space for challenging nuclear energy development and discussing alternative energy transitions.

    Semiotics of Politics: Dialogicality of Parliamentary Talk2015Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Parliamentary talk, despite its central place in politics, has not been the focus of many qualitative studies. The present study investigates how parliamentary talk emerges in a dialogue between different arguments in the parliament. At the same time, this is a study of politics, of how human interaction gives birth to laws that regulate life in two contemporary democracies, Slovakia and Poland. It provides a close-reading of two political debates: on the state language in Slovakia and on gender parity in Poland.

    This study draws on hermeneutic and semiotic thinkers such as Gadamer, Bakhtin and Lotman to elaborate a dialogical understanding of language that can provide the basis for a method of textual analysis. The dialogical understanding of language emphasises that text and talk must be studied in the context of an interaction. The unit of analysis is a pair of utterances, a question and an answer. Until an utterance has been interpreted, it carries only the potential of meaning; its meaning is materialised by the responses it receives.

    The study further argues that conversation analysis and its tools can usefully be applied to the study of political debate. The method provides for the analysis of the dynamics between micro-scale interaction in the parliament and the macro-scale dynamics of culture. These dynamics assume two different forms that Lotman termed as “translation” and “explosion”.

    The study shows that parliamentary debate is characterised by a constantly evolving topic of discussion, namely that the meaning of the bill at the start of the debate and at the end of the debate are really two different bills. This is not because the content of the bill has undergone changes, but because in the course of the debate, the bill has generated new cultural connections. Casting a vote in support of the bill does not approve just the bill itself but a whole set of interconnected political, social and cultural values—what Lotman approached as the semiosphere. This study suggests Lotman’s cultural semiotics can provide for “imperfect hermeneutics” that is sensitive to the dynamic and contested nature of tradition in politics whilst acknowledging the inevitability of culture in mediating political talk.

    Sovereign power and refugees in the Polish parliament2018In: Journal of Contemporary Central and Eastern Europe, ISSN 2573-9638, Vol. 26, no 2-3, p. 109-129Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper shows that contemporary Polish politics under the tutelage of Law and Justice (PiS) can fruitfully be analysed as a biopolitical production of political subjects. Drawing on Giorgio Agamben’s take on biopolitics, this paper asks how biopolitics and sovereign power materialized in two recent Polish parliamentary debates on EU sanctioned refugee quotas. The paper uses linguistic tropes to operationalize sovereign power and applies them to the analysis. The findings demonstrate the centrality of contingent factors in the ways to which biopolitics materializes in the debates and reveals the radically politicizing effects for a contemporary democratic system.

    Organizing service delivery on social mediaplatforms?: Loosely organized networks, co-optation, and the welfare state2019In: Public Management Review, ISSN 1471-9037, E-ISSN 1471-9045Article 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.

    AbstractIn this thesis, Sex trafficking as a security issue- an idea analysis of the Swedish government’sand the EU’s stance and if they adopt a traditional or feministic approach by me AmandaTörnblom, the aim is to examine the Swedish government’s and the EU’s stance on thematter. The purpose is furthermore to clarify if they adopt a traditional or feminist approach tosex trafficking as a security issue. The main question of issue is therefore “Do the Swedishgovernment and the EU adopt a traditional or feminist approach to sex trafficking as asecurity issue?”. The analysis is made in accordance to Jennifer Lobasz’s theoreticalframework and done trough an idea analysis in order to examine how the Swedishgovernment and EU outline the security referent, security threat and policy focus. Theconclusion of the research is therefore that neither of them assumes a pure traditional orfeminist approach. Their approaches are quite similar: they both express indications of bothapproaches in regards to security threat and policy focus. Regarding the security referent bothof them construct it to the individual although it is unclear the second mentionedsimultaneously construct the state as the referent also.

    Reconnecting European Political Parties with European Union Citizens2018Report (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Democracy involves popular control over decision-making, and political equality among those exercising that control. In parliamentary democracies, day-to-day control is delegated to elected politicians, who organize themselves in political parties. Globally, political parties have become an important interface between government and the people.

    Since their establishment, European political parties have enhanced their role(s) within the polity of the European Union. Within the context of multiple challenges to democracy worldwide, and in view of the 2019 European Parliament elections, European political parties are increasingly called upon to represent EU citizens in their work, and ensure an effective connection with people.

    This Discussion Paper takes a comprehensive approach to understanding the role(s) of European political parties within the polity of the EU. It focuses on how European political parties can (re)connect with EU citizens, and emphasizes the regulatory framework in which European political parties operate. It also provides insights into European political parties’ linkage with national political parties, and outreach in relation to EU political actors and citizens. It includes a set of recommendations to advance the broadening, deepening and diversification of avenues and tools for European political parties to connect with citizens.

    Abstract [en]

    Political parties play a central role in the political process of the EU. However, this still means mainly national parties while European parties are relatively weak. The Euro crisis has highlighted the need for a truly democratic connection between European citizens and the European governance process. Arguably, stronger European political parties should play a crucial role here. This volume brings together experts on party research and European law who explore the possibilities and limitations of a stronger European party government.

    Summitry of Political Parties at European Level: The Case of the PES Leaders’ Conference2013In: In the Name of Political Union: Europarties on the Rise / [ed] Ernst Stetter, Karl Duffek & Ania Skrzypek, Brussels: FEPS - Foundation for European Progressive Studies , 2013, p. 62-76Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Europarties regularly organise summit meetings of party and government leaders prior to the European Council. So far only specific cases have been studied, with a focus on policy impact with regard to European Council meetings. By contrast, this article investigates Europarty summits – particularly the PES Leaders’ Conferences – empirically and systematically through a comparison across time and cases. On the one hand the focus lies on the organisation of and participation in pre-European Council meetings. On the other hand the article also explores the reasons why senior politicians from various political parties (do not) attend these summits. This article shows that Europarty summits (PES Leaders’ Conferences) have been increasingly institutionalised, that there is significant variation both within and across cases as far as participation is concerned, and that they serve different functions: elite networking, intra-party decision-making, soft policy coordination, bilateral contacts and media performance.

    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 Social Logic of Late Nihilism: Martin Heidegger and Carl Schmitt on Global Space and the Sites of Gods2014In: European Review, ISSN 1062-7987, E-ISSN 1474-0575, Vol. 22, no 02, p. 244-257Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article compares, thematically, two prominent but problematical twentiethcentury critics of nihilism: Martin Heidegger and Carl Schmitt. Both spoke of the spread of a global space, tied to tendencies towards the reduction of everything to a reserve of resources, a development both connected to a pursuit of intense but ultimately insignificant experiences. For Schmitt, nihilism stems from the disconnection of the global order from its European, Christian origins. For Heidegger, nihilism represents, rather, the culmination of a European, metaphysical tradition. Furthermore, while Schmitt appears to see a counterpoint to nihilism in the sacred sites of Christianity, representing the ultimate metaphysical exception of Christian revelation, Heidegger proposes a view of sacred sites as tied to the appearance of a god as something strange and enigmatic, which has often been reduced within Christian, theological thought. In conclusion, I situate the two critiques in relation to Karl Jasper's notion of an Axial Age and the developments of a contemporary global space. This way of situating the two critiques will show how Heidegger actively attempted to handle two fundamental developments which Schmitt sought to elude: the increasingly intense relativisation of Christianity in relation to other major religious traditions, and the relativisation of claims concerning religious revelations and theophanies in relation to the scientific and technological spatiality and temporality of the global space.
