    “Jag tror att många där ute förväntar sig att psykologer ska vara som superhjältar” : En socialpsykologisk studie om psykologers tankar kring sitt arbete2016Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta är en kvalitativ studie i sociologi, baserad på intervjuer och skriven av Siham El Hajoui och Nahrin Issa. Studiens titel börjar med ett citat taget ur ett av de erhållna intervjusvaren, som speglar de förväntningar som människor kan ha på psykologer idag. Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka hur psykologer påverkas av sitt arbete, hur de drar gränsen mellan arbete och övrigt liv samt om de känner empati för sina klienter. Det sker även en diskussion kring människors förväntningar på psykologer. Studien avgränsas genom ett fokus på sex stycken legitimerade psykologer, som har arbetat inom yrket i minst 3 år.                       Resultatet visar att de utvalda respondenterna upplever att psykologyrket är ett tungt yrke, och att det därmed krävs erfarenhet för att lära sig om hur en kan hantera all information på bästa sätt. Det visar sig även att det existerar förväntningar på respondenterna, som gör att de påverkas och använder sig av olika strategier för att kunna dra en gräns mellan arbete och privatliv. Resultatet analyserades med hjälp av tidigare forskning som handlar om gränsdragning mellan arbete och övrigt liv, läkares medlidande med patienter och arbetsrelaterad utbrändhet, samt teorier gällande roller och empati.

    The changing political landscape of Sweden: Political cleavages, actors and processes2018Ingår i: Sociologisk forskning, ISSN 0038-0342, Vol. 55, nr 2-3, s. 139-154Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The political landscape in Sweden has undergone considerable changes in recent decades The number of political parties in the Swedish parliament has increased from five to eight, and the socio-economic issues of the traditional political right–left scale has been challenged by socio-cultural issues relating to lifestyle and identity. Notably, the notion of Swedish exceptionalism and the particularities of its welfare state is lingering despite findings pointing in the opposite direction e.g. with the increased electoral support for the radical right, and its ethno-nationalist and anti-immigrant rhetoric. The corporatist model has been challenged by new forms of political authority, participation and representation. New political actors, such as social movements and civil society actors, think tanks and policy professionals, are becoming increasingly engaged in political processes. The long-term trend suggests that traditionally marginalised groups, such as the young, women and groups of migrant background, are represented in decision-making forums to a higher degree than before. Yet, current conditions need further analysis. In this article, we provide a background to Sociologisk Forskning’s special issue on the political landscape of the parliamentary election in 2018.

    Depressive symptoms, anxiety and academic motivation in youth: Do schools and families make a difference?2015Ingår i: Journal of Adolescence, ISSN 0140-1971, E-ISSN 1095-9254, Vol. 45, s. 174-182Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This longitudinal study aimed to examine the association between depressive and anxiety symptoms and academic motivation by gender, and whether positive school and family factors would be associated with academic motivation, in spite of the presence of such symptoms. Study participants were predominantly economically disadvantaged youths aged 13-15 years in a Northeastern US urban public school system. The Social and Health Assessment (SAHA) served as the basis for a survey undertaken in 2003 and 2004 with information being used from students who participated at both time points (N = 643). Multiple linear regression analyses showed that depressive symptoms were negatively associated with academic motivation, while anxiety was positively related to academic motivation in both genders. Teacher support, school attachment and parental control were positively related to academic motivation even in the presence of internalizing problems. The negative association of depressive symptoms with academic motivation may be potentially decreased by attachment to school.

    Sjuksköterskornas revolution: En kvalitativ studie om organisatorisk identifikation2017Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Sjuksköterskornas revolution är en kvalitativ studie om organisatorisk identifikation. Syftet med studien är att skapa djupare förståelse för hur sjuksköterskornas organisatoriska identitet påverkas av att arbeta genom entreprenadbemanning inom vården. Studiens frågeställningar handlar om hur sjuksköterskorna upplever att arbeta inom en entreprenadbemanning inom landstinget, hur de upplever sin organisatoriska identifikation och hur organisationernas arbetssätt kan påverka identifikationen. Ämnet är valt då entreprenadbemanning är ett relativt nytt fenomen inom vården vilket gör att det saknas kunskap kring ämnet. Studien utgår från en fältstudie där samtlig empiri är insamlad via semistrukturerade intervjuer med bemanningssjuksköterskor samt nyckelpersoner från både sjukhuset och bemanningsföretaget. Studiens analysverktyg består av social identitetsteori och social identitetsteori inom organisationer. Begrepp som används för analysen är bland andra; självidentitet, social kategorisering, social identifikation, social jämförelse och undergrupper. Studiens teoretiska bidrag pekar på att sjuksköterskorna till viss del identifierar sig med båda organisationerna och det tar sig uttryck i att sjuksköterskorna identifierar sig med sjukhuset då det är deras fysiska arbetsplats och med bemanningsföretaget för att det är deras arbetsgivare. Däremot sker den primära identifikationen snarare till den egna in-gruppen, vilket bara består av sjuksköterskor från bemanningsföretaget. Den starka gemenskap sjuksköterskorna beskriver består av välvilja och en stark teamkänsla.

    Den agila trenden: En organisationsstudie om hur och varför agila metoder implementeras och vilken påverkan det får på de anställda2018Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats studerar, genom ett kvalitativt angreppssätt, hur agila metoder som arbetssätt tillämpas på en bank. Syftet med studien är att förstå motivet bakom att implementera metoderna, hur förändringsprocessen har genomförts och vilka effekter det ger på de anställda i företaget. Intervjuer av både medarbetare och ledning har genomförts och deras individuella erfarenheter har genererat i en förståelse för att det finns olika uppfattningar om arbetssättet. Observationer har synliggjort hur arbetssättet praktiseras, vilket har bidragit till ett större helhetsperspektiv. Som analysverktyg används teoretiska begrepp som organisationsrecept, intressentmodellen, processförändring, motstånd, cynefin, human relations och effektivitet. Studiens resultat visar på att både interna och externa faktorer utgjort motiv till implementeringen av agila metoder. Banken har ämnat genomföra förändringsprocessen agilt med ständig förbättring som mål. Osäkerhet är en effekt av implementationen och kan förklaras av en svårighet att tillämpa metoden i hela verksamheten. Den största effekten av arbetssättet är ökad effektivitet, vilket är ledningens främsta mål. Hur det påverkar de anställda positivt är genom ökad trivsel för de som motiveras av arbetssättet och negativt för de som inte gör det. Studiens slutsats pekar på svårigheten att implementera ett arbetssätt som genererar positiva effekter för samtliga anställda.

    Social capital - a mixed blessing for women? A cross-sectional study of different forms of social relations and self-rated depression in Moscow2016Ingår i: BMC Psychology, E-ISSN 2050-7283, Vol. 4, nr 1, artikel-id 37Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Depression is a major health problem worldwide, especially among women. The condition has been related to a number of factors, such as alcohol consumption, economic situation and, more recently, to social capital. However, there have been relatively few studies about the social capital-depression relationship in Eastern Europe. This paper aims to fill this gap by examining the association between different forms of social capital and self-rated depression in Moscow. Differences between men and women will also be examined, with a special focus on women.

    METHODS: Data was obtained from the Moscow Health Survey, which was conducted in 2004 with 1190 Muscovites aged 18 years or above. For depression, a single-item self-reported measure was used. Social capital was operationalised through five questions about different forms of social relations. Logistic regression analysis was undertaken to estimate the association between social capital and self-rated depression, separately for men and women.

    RESULTS: More women (48 %) than men (36 %) reported that they had felt depressed during the last year. An association was found between social capital and reported depression only among women. Women who were divorced or widowed or who had little contact with relatives had higher odds of reporting depression than those with more family contact. Women who regularly engaged with people from different age groups outside of their families were also more likely to report depression than those with less regular contact.

    CONCLUSIONS: Social capital can be a mixed blessing for women. Different forms of social relations can lead to different health outcomes, both positive and negative. Although the family is important for women's mental health in Moscow, extra-familial relations across age groups can be mentally distressing. This suggests that even though social capital can be a valuable resource for mental health, some of its forms can be mentally deleterious to maintain, especially for women. More research is needed on both sides to social capital. A special focus should be placed on bridging social relations among women in order to better understand the complex association between social capital and depression in Russia and elsewhere.

    Smoking cessation and desire to stop smoking in nine countries of the former soviet union2013Ingår i: Nicotine & tobacco research, ISSN 1462-2203, E-ISSN 1469-994X, Vol. 15, nr 9, s. 1628-1633Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction: Smoking rates and corresponding levels of premature mortality from smoking-related diseases in the former Soviet Union (fSU) are among the highest in the world. To reduce this health burden, greater focus on smoking cessation is needed, but little is currently known about rates and characteristics of cessation in the fSU. Methods: Nationally representative household survey data from a cross-sectional study of 18,000 respondents in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, and Ukraine were analyzed to describe patterns of desire and action taken to stop smoking, quit ratios (former ever-smokers as a percent of ever-smokers, without a specified recall period), and help used to stop smoking. Multivariate logistic regression was used to analyze characteristics associated with smoking cessation and desire to stop smoking. Results: Quit ratios varied from 10.5% in Azerbaijan to 37.6% in Belarus. About 67.2% of respondents expressed a desire to quit, and 64.9% had taken action and tried to stop. The use of help to quit was extremely low (12.6%). Characteristics associated with cessation included being female, over 60, with higher education, poorer health, lower alcohol dependency, higher knowledge of tobacco's health effects, and support for tobacco control. Characteristics associated with desire to stop smoking among current smokers included younger age, poorer health, greater knowledge of tobacco's health effects, and support for tobacco control. Conclusions: Quit ratios are low in the fSU but there is widespread desire to stop smoking. Stronger tobacco control and cessation support are urgently required to reduce smoking prevalence and associated premature mortality.

    ”Är hon inte nöjd så är jag inte bra”: En kvalitativ studie om unga kvinnor med en akademisk utbildning som tidigt i karriären blivit sjukskrivna på grund av psykisk ohälsa2016Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien var att undersöka bakomliggande mekanismer som påverkar psykisk ohälsa hos unga kvinnor. En avgränsning gjordes till unga kvinnor med akademisk utbildning och som tidigt i karriären blivit sjukskrivna på grund av psykisk ohälsa. Den teoretiska referensramen för studien har bestått av Karseks och Theorells krav- kontroll- och stödmodell. Utöver detta har Baumans teori om identitetsskapande används som en komplettering till kategorin identitet.För att kunna besvara studiens problemformulering har en kvalitativ metod valts, bestående av fem intervjuer med unga kvinnor som har varit sjukskrivna. Resultatet visade att respondenterna har haft höga krav och låg kontroll i arbetet innan de blev sjukskrivna. De har även haft ett gott socialt stöd från kollegor samt från kontakter utanför arbetsplatsen. Det sociala stödet från chefer har varierat och gemensamt för samtliga respondenter är att de inte har använt sig av sitt fulla sociala stöd, innan de blev sjukskrivna. Kopplat till identitet har respondenterna haft en prestationsbaserad självkänsla. I diskussionen redovisas att identiteten kan göra att man inte använder sitt sociala stöd vilket kan bidra till psykisk ohälsa.

    Ung på arbetsmarknaden: En kvalitativ studie om hur otrygga anställningsformer påverkar individen2017Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna uppsats är att undersöka huruvida och på vilket sätt unga individer med behovs- och deltidsanställning upplever att deras anställningsform påverkar deras hälsa, livssituation och vardagsliv. I uppsatsen beskrivs behovs- och deltidsanställningar som otrygga då de i många fall innebär ett oförutsägbart schema och en oförutsägbar inkomst.

    Studien är kvalitativ och bygger på fem intervjuer med unga individer mellan 20–30 år som alla har, eller under de senaste sex månaderna har haft, en behovs- eller deltidsanställning som huvudsaklig sysselsättning.

    Det insamlade datamaterialet analyseras med hjälp av fyra sociologiska teorier, dessa är flexibilitet på arbetsmarknaden, krav- och kontrollmodellen, ekonomi-skam och ekonomi-sociala band modellen samt psykologiska kontrakt.

    De slutsatser som dras är att en otrygg anställningsform leder till psykiska påfrestningar hos de anställda, som i stor utsträckning upplever stress och oro inför framtiden. Konsekvenserna grundas till stor del i en ostabil och oförutsägbar ekonomi. Av resultatet framgår även att de sociala relationerna med både chef och kollegor spelar stor roll för upplevelsen av den otrygga anställningsformen. Om arbetstagaren har en god relation med chef och kollegor upplever denne i större utsträckning anställningsformen och dess medföljande villkor som bättre.

    Dog lovers and vegan liberators: Fractures and tensions within the Animal Rights Movement in Russia2013Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the 1990s Russia saw many social movements emerging due to developing spaces of social activism and a rising concern of citizens for their immediate surroundings. Although the Putin reign closed many opportunities, social activism in spaces which are not directly connected to political concerns survived and developed further. The example of the animal rights movement shows how its main concern for shelter and survival of homeless animals units a wide range of Russian citizens and mostly stays under the radar of state security organs. However, the access to information to world-wide developments supported the emergence of more radical forms of activism for universal rights of animals, such as animal liberation, property destruction and street protests. These currents were brought in by followers of vegan/vegetarian lifestyles and by anarchists, which propose oppositional positions and radical critiques on society as a whole.

    The paper gives an overview over the main concerns of the Russian animal rights movement and shows how demands and critiques differ according to ideological backgrounds and social positions of their agents. On the one hand, ideological cleavages among concerned citizens and activists cause also differences in organizational approaches to social activism, which makes cooperation and mutual support difficult. But on the other, the Russian movement for the rights of animals succeeds in supporting the diffusion of international lifestyle values and forms of social activism.

    The turn of the gradient? Educational differences in breast cancer mortality in 18 European populations during the 2000s2017Ingår i: International Journal of Cancer, ISSN 0020-7136, E-ISSN 1097-0215, Vol. 141, nr 1, s. 33-44Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This study aims to investigate the association between educational level and breast cancer mortality in Europe in the 2000s. Unlike most other causes of death, breast cancer mortality tends to be positively related to education, with higher educated women showing higher mortality rates. Research has however shown that the association is changing from being positive over non-existent to negative in some countries. To investigate these patterns, data from national mortality registers and censuses were collected and harmonized for 18 European populations. The study population included all women aged 30-74. Age-standardized mortality rates, mortality rate ratios, and slope and relative indexes of inequality were computed by education. The population was stratified according to age (women aged 30-49 and women aged 50-74). The relation between educational level and breast cancer mortality was predominantly negative in women aged 30-49, mortality rates being lower among highly educated women and higher among low educated women, although few outcomes were statistically significant. Among women aged 50-74, the association was mostly positive and statistically significant in some populations. A comparison with earlier research in the 1990s revealed a changing pattern of breast cancer mortality. Positive educational differences that used to be significant in the 1990s were no longer significant in the 2000s, indicating that inequalities have decreased or disappeared. This evolution is in line with the "fundamental causes" theory which stipulates that whenever medical insights and treatment become available to combat a disease, a negative association with socio-economic position will arise, independently of the underlying risk factors.

    Magical formulae for market futures: Tales from the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos2016Ingår i: Anthropology Today, ISSN 0268-540X, E-ISSN 1467-8322, Vol. 32, nr 6, s. 18-21Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Markets are often portrayed as being organized by way of rationalized knowledge, objective reasoning, and the fluctuations of demand and supply. In parallel, and often mixed with this modality of knowledge, magical beliefs and practices are prevalent. Business leaders, management consultants, and financial advisors are often savvy in the art of creatively blending the ‘objective facts’ of markets with magical formulae, rites, and imaginaries of the future. This article looks at the World Economic Forum's yearly Davos meeting as a large-scale ritual that engages senior executives of global corporations, top-level politicians, and civil society leaders to contribute to the overall aim of ‘improving the world’. The Davos gathering has become a vital part of the business calendar, just as much for the intensity of its networking as for the declarations of action from the speakers’ podiums. The presentations and performances in Davos work as ‘technologies of enchantment’ in Gell's (1992) sense, instilling a sense of agency onto participants. The ritual also contributes towards securing the acquiescence of individuals and organizations in a transnational network of politico-economic intentionalities. By invoking global and regional challenges and risks, discussing possible scenarios and solutions, presenters invoke a sense of urgency and contribute to the articulation of global ‘problems’ and ‘solutions’. It is proposed that the magic of Davos resides to a large extent in the ritualized form of interaction and the technologies of enchantment through which it is set up. © RAI 2016

    Meeting the 'organs': The tacit dilemma of field research in authoritarian states2013Ingår i: Area (London 1969), ISSN 0004-0894, E-ISSN 1475-4762, Vol. 45, nr 4, s. 426-432Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    To the regret of many scholars, science and politics often overlap, and nowhere as clearly as inside countries ruled by authoritarian governments, where research tends to attract the surveillance of repressive authorities and, more specifically, of the secret services (known as the 'organ' within post-communist space). While such surveillance places significant ethical and methodological challenges on field research, it is rarely discussed in the literature. This paper discusses what may happen when the organ takes interest in fieldwork. Based on the author's experiences in a range of post-communist countries, the aim is to present and discuss the related risks, and to show how these may materialise in relation to the organ's (c)overt activities.

    Neighbourhood reputation in the Soviet city and beyond: Disassembling the geography of prestige in Ust’-Kamenogorsk, Kazakhstan2016Ingår i: European Urban and Regional Studies, ISSN 0969-7764, E-ISSN 1461-7145, Vol. 23, nr 4, s. 697-715Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper revisits the geographical legacy of socialism in the urban areas of the former Soviet Union. Building on research on housing and socio-spatial differentiation under and after socialism, this will be achieved by examining an important component in the spatial differentiation of the city, namely neighbourhood reputation. The analysis is based on survey data (n = 1515) from the city of Ust’-Kamenogorsk, Kazakhstan; a combination of descriptive statistics and multivariate logistic regression are deployed in order to shed light on the factors that are associated with the reputation of the neighbourhoods in which people reside. The results show that the Soviet system manufactured its own brand of socio-spatial distinction, which reflected the priority hierarchies built in the socialist planned economy. Education, age and, most importantly, area of employment appear to have been ‘rewarded’ with prestigiously located housing.

    The "soviet" factor: Exploring perceived housing inequalities in a midsized city in the Donbas, Ukraine2015Ingår i: Urban geography, ISSN 0272-3638, E-ISSN 1938-2847, Vol. 36, nr 5, s. 696-720Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, I revisit the role of Soviet legacy factors in explaining todays housing inequalities in a midsized post-Soviet city by investigating social, demographic, economic and geographic determinants of perceived housing quality. Building on a sample survey dataset (n = 3,000) that brings together both Soviet legacy effects and more universal influences on housing inequality, it is shown that various aspects of Soviet housing policy can be traced as well-preserved legacies today. The survey was conducted in 2009 in Stakhanov, Ukraine, and the method of analysis is binomial logistic regression. By capturing both the social costs attributed to the post-Soviet transition crisis as well as the underlying legacy factors inherited from the Soviet epoch, the findings suggest that any analysis of housing inequalities or residential segregation in the post-socialist city must come to terms with the impacts of socialist-era economic priorities on the urban social landscape.

    West oriented in the East-oriented Donbas: a political stratigraphy of geopolitical identity in Luhansk, Ukraine2015Ingår i: Post-Soviet Affairs, ISSN 1060-586X, E-ISSN 1938-2855, Vol. 31, nr 3, s. 201-223Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Building on data from a survey (n = 4000) conducted in the eastern Ukrainian city of Luhansk in late 2013, this article explores the link between national identity and foreign policy preferences in the Donbas, suggesting that they are increasingly conflated in distinct geopolitical identities. Descriptive statistics and multinomial logistic regression are used to compare the characteristics of pro-West and uncertain individuals with those of the pro-Russian/Soviet individuals, with preferences on North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and European Union (EU) accession underlying this distinction. The results show that geopolitical identities in Luhansk have a complex political stratigraphy that includes demographic, socioeconomic, cultural, and attitudinal components. The pro-West constituency is younger, not Russian but often including members of other ethnic groups, well educated, more tolerant toward sexual minorities, generally more satisfied with life, and it also speaks better English. Conversely, those with pro-Russia/Soviet geopolitical identities are older, Russian, low educated, less fluent in English, intolerant, and unsatisfied with their lives. Uncertainty is more randomly distributed among social groups, indicating different underlying causes related to the source of the respondents’ uncertainty.

    Housing inequalities in Bucharest: shallow changes in hesitant transition2014Ingår i: GeoJournal, ISSN 0343-2521, E-ISSN 1572-9893, Vol. 79, nr 4, s. 449-465Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Much has been said, yet little remains known, about the impacts of the changes associated with post-socialist transition on housing inequalities in metropolitan Central and Eastern Europe. To some extent, this depends on the scarcity of 'hard evidence' about the socialist epoch against which the subsequent developments may be gauged. Based on a case study of Bucharest, the Romanian capital and one of the region's major cities, this study investigates various lines of housing inequality using data from a 20 % sample of the national censuses of 1992 and 2002. With only minor changes having taken place since the revolutionary events of late 1989, the year 1992 provides an accurate picture of the housing inequalities inherited from the socialist epoch, whereas the new societal order had largely been established by 2002. We use linear regression and binary logistic regression modeling to identify the factors that predict living space and level of facilities. The results suggest that the first decade of transition did not exert any major influences on the housing inequalities inherited from socialism, with the exception of notable improvements at the very top of the social pyramid. This finding is at odds with the literature that highlights the (suggested) effects of socio-economic polarization on the residential structure of cities after socialism. However, the results from 1992 indicate that housing was segmented along socio-economic lines already under socialism, and perhaps more so than one would have expected in the light of the literature on housing inequalities during this period.

    Housing allocation under socialism: the Soviet case revisited2013Ingår i: Post-Soviet Affairs, ISSN 1060-586X, E-ISSN 1938-2855, Vol. 29, nr 2, s. 173-195Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Social or public housing is an important component of the housing supply= n most European countries. Nowhere, however, has the notion of social hou= ng been taken as far as in the countries that formerly were ruled by soci= ist regimes, most notably the Soviet Union. For this reason, it may be ar= ed that the development of theorizations on housing has much to learn fro= this large but inconclusively studied example. One of the avowed virtues = socialism was that the system, in theory, guaranteed its subjects equal = ghts to housing. That this was not quite the case is well known in the li= rature, but in fact no robust evidence to support this view (or the contr= y) has been presented so far. Therefore, this paper's aim is to investiga= the functioning of the Soviet system of housing allocation, assessing it= claims to social equity and justice. Based on a detailed case study of ab= t 3500 Soviet-era housing allocation decisions made in Daugavpils, Latvia= at five poin! s in time covering various stages in the development of Soviet power (ful= coverage of decisions made in 1953, 1960, 1970, 1980, and January-April 1= 0), we illustrate how much living space was allocated to whom. In additio= we detail the characteristics of the waiting times involved. We apply bo= descriptive and regression methods on our data-set, making a significant= ontribution to what is known about the outcome of housing allocation unde= socialism and, at a more general level, under strictly supply-constrained= onditions.

    ”Ibland kan man känna att man är mer ensam nu”: En fallstudie om de anställdas upplevelser av arbete i ett aktivitetsbaserat kontorslandskap.2017Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Det blir allt vanligare att kontor förändras och går från det traditionella cellkontoret till öppna och aktivitetsbaserade kontorslandskap. De senare är behovsanpassade och sägs vara flexibla där anställda själva kan välja hur och var de vill arbeta. Teliaär ett av de företag som nyligen genomgått en omorganisation och utformat sitt kontor med en aktivitetsanpassad design. Syftet med denna studie är att skapa kunskap kring hur de anställda på Telia upplever arbetet i den nya arbetsmiljön. Men även att ta reda på huruvida den fysiska utformningen upplevs påverka de sociala interaktionerna på arbetsplatsen. Denna studie är av kvalitativ karaktär då den avser att tydliggöra upplevelserna hos medarbetarna. Semistrukturerade intervjuer har genomförts med fem anställda vilka alla har olika yrkesroller inom företaget. Det teoretiska ramverket som har använts för att kunna analysera resultatet är Bangs (1999) teori om organisationskultur, olika delar av Goffmans (2006) dramaturgiska perspektiv samt Jacobsen & Thorsviks (2014) teori om organisatorisk kommunikation. De resultat som framkommit visar både för-och nackdelar med det aktivitetsbaserade arbetssättet. Förutom ergonomi, djupa interaktioner och känslan av att veta var ens kollegor sitter verkar medarbetarna påTelia mestadels vara positivt inställda till det nya kontorslandskapet. Resultaten i denna studie påvisar bland annat att det aktivitetsbaserade kontoret upplevs skapa flexibilitet och nätverkande mellan medarbetare. Slutligen visar studiens resultat att hierarki, samhörighet och kommunikation tillsammans utgör en positiv känsla av det nya aktivitetsbaserade kontorslandskapet på Telia, enligt de anställda.

    Alcohol use and burden for 195 countries and territories, 1990-2016: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 20162018Ingår i: The Lancet, ISSN 0140-6736, E-ISSN 1474-547X, Vol. 392, nr 10152, s. 1015-1035Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Alcohol use is a leading risk factor for death and disability, but its overall association with health remains complex given the possible protective effects of moderate alcohol consumption on some conditions. With our comprehensive approach to health accounting within the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study 2016, we generated improved estimates of alcohol use and alcohol-attributable deaths and disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs) for 195 locations from 1990 to 2016, for both sexes and for 5-year age groups between the ages of 15 years and 95 years and older.

    Methods: Using 694 data sources of individual and population-level alcohol consumption, along with 592 prospective and retrospective studies on the risk of alcohol use, we produced estimates of the prevalence of current drinking, abstention, the distribution of alcohol consumption among current drinkers in standard drinks daily (defined as 10 g of pure ethyl alcohol), and alcohol-attributable deaths and DALYs. We made several methodological improvements compared with previous estimates: first, we adjusted alcohol sales estimates to take into account tourist and unrecorded consumption; second, we did a new meta-analysis of relative risks for 23 health outcomes associated with alcohol use; and third, we developed a new method to quantify the level of alcohol consumption that minimises the overall risk to individual health.

    Findings: Globally, alcohol use was the seventh leading risk factor for both deaths and DALYs in 2016, accounting for 2.2% (95% uncertainty interval [UI] 1.5-3.0) of age-standardised female deaths and 6.8% (5.8-8.0) of age-standardised male deaths. Among the population aged 15-49 years, alcohol use was the leading risk factor globally in 2016, with 3.8% (95% UI 3.2-4-3) of female deaths and 12.2% (10.8-13-6) of male deaths attributable to alcohol use. For the population aged 15-49 years, female attributable DALYs were 2.3% (95% UI 2.0-2.6) and male attributable DALYs were 8.9% (7.8-9.9). The three leading causes of attributable deaths in this age group were tuberculosis (1.4% [95% UI 1. 0-1. 7] of total deaths), road injuries (1.2% [0.7-1.9]), and self-harm (1.1% [0.6-1.5]). For populations aged 50 years and older, cancers accounted for a large proportion of total alcohol-attributable deaths in 2016, constituting 27.1% (95% UI 21.2-33.3) of total alcohol-attributable female deaths and 18.9% (15.3-22.6) of male deaths. The level of alcohol consumption that minimised harm across health outcomes was zero (95% UI 0.0-0.8) standard drinks per week.

    Interpretation: Alcohol use is a leading risk factor for global disease burden and causes substantial health loss. We found that the risk of all-cause mortality, and of cancers specifically, rises with increasing levels of consumption, and the level of consumption that minimises health loss is zero. These results suggest that alcohol control policies might need to be revised worldwide, refocusing on efforts to lower overall population-level consumption.

    Vägen till lojala medarbetare: En kvantitativ studie om intern employer branding2018Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie syftar till att undersöka medarbetares attityder gentemot ett enskilt företagsemployer brand. Genom tillämpning av Employer Attractiveness-skalan (EmpAt) (Berthon etal. 2005) studeras hur medarbetarnas uppfattning av attraktiviteten hos arbetsgivaren varierarberoende på utvalda demografiska komponenter. Vidare är syftet att ta reda på huruvida ettstatistiskt signifikant samband existerar mellan medarbetarnas lojalitet och medarbetarnasuppfattning om arbetsgivarens attraktivitet. En kvantitativ forskningsmetod i form av endigital enkätundersökning tillämpas vid insamling av studiens datamaterial, vilket analyserasi det statistiska dataprogrammet SPSS. Resultaten visar att det inte råder några signifikantademografiska skillnader vad gäller den upplevda attraktiviteten hos arbetsgivaren. Ett starktpositivt samband har identifierats mellan det undersökta företagets attraktivitetsvärde ochdess medarbetares lojalitet. Studiens resultat är endast applicerbara för den deltagandepopulationen, och kan inte generaliseras till en annan population än den i studien deltagande.

    Syfte: Det övergripande syftet med studien har varit att belysa vilka brottspreventiva åtgärder som dominerar inom Botkyrka kommun och diskurser bakom dessa. Syftet har också varit att studera hur samverkan kring dessa åtgärder fungerar rent praktiskt och upplevs av aktörerna.

     

    Metod: Datainsamlingen har huvudsakligen skett genom kvalitativ diskursanalys av officiella dokument och sex kvalitativa intervjuer med personer som arbetar och är engagerade med brottspreventiva- och trygghetsskapande frågor inom Botkyrka kommun under hösten 2016.

     

    Resultat: Det huvudsakliga resultatet har visat på att de dominerande brottspreventiva åtgärderna i materialet, tar sin utgångspunkt i de sociala och situationella brottspreventiva modellerna. Diskurserna bakom dessa åtgärder existerar parallellt, där ena diskursen är en tro på att människan kan socialiseras in i samhället som på sikt utvecklar normkomformt beteende och den andra är grunduppfattningen att människan som rationell varelse väljer att begå brott om denne inte hindras ifrån detta. Resultatet visade även på en diskrepans mellan kommunens uppsatta strategi och flera av de insatser som bedrivs inom kommunen. Parterna som samverkar kring dessa frågor, upplevde att en gemensam bild av samverkansgrunden var viktigt för en fungerande samverkan, samt att det finns problem med att bygga upp en samverkan på en ”nyckelperson”.

    Abstract [en]

    In today’slabor market there’s a distinct sectioning between the sexes where some of the labors are seen as more manly, while other labors are seen as typically female. But if you were to compare todays situation with how it once was there a clear pattern showing that more women and men are working in a labor dominated by the opposite sex. The aim of this study was to investigate the wat women experience the demands and expectations placed on them in the construction industry. Our study will shed light on how women in the construction industry feelthey are treated by their male colleagues, the demands placed on them and which expectations their colleagues andmanagers have on them.The theoretical framework for the study consisted ofYvonne Hirdmann’s gender system (1998), Lena Abrahamsson’s theory of restoration (2000), Mia Hultin’s the glass ceiling (2003) and Charlotte Holgersson’s theory of homosociality(2003). The study was conducted with a hermeneutic approach where six women working in the construction sector were interviewed.The main interpretation of the study show that the majority of womenbelieve that they are treated well, but that there is a kinshipamong their male colleagues, which is difficult to penetrate.

    Good versus bad?: Victims, offenders and victim-offenders in Swedish crime policy2014Ingår i: European Journal of Criminology, ISSN 1477-3708, E-ISSN 1741-2609, Vol. 11, nr 4, s. 410-428Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In the crime policy field, the crime victim is usually described as the direct opposite of the offender in terms of characteristics and needs. This article analyses crime policy descriptions of crime victims and offenders, with a special focus on how politicians address the issue of the victim-offender overlap. The material comprises a sample of legislative crime policy bills submitted by members of the Swedish parliament during 2005-10. In the bills, crime victims are described as good, innocent and in need of help, whereas the offender is seen as a bad, ruthless scoundrel. In between stands a group of victim-offenders; pitiable poor things. However, when responses to offenders are discussed, both poor things and scoundrels are to be punished severely. © The Author(s) 2013.

    National Myth-Making and Populist Mobilization in Scandinavia2013Ingår i: Partecipazione e conflitto, ISSN 1972-7623, Vol. 6, nr 3, s. 30-53Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyses if and how the Sweden Democrats (the SD), the Danish People’s Party (the DPP) and the Progress Party (the PP) in Norway use myths of national exclusiveness and myths about the common people to radicalize popularly held sentiments to attract votes and gain political credibility in political space. The specific contribution is that we consider national myths to be a relevant political opportunity structure in the political competition of the votes. We conclude that both the SD and the DPP make use of national myths to gain credibility in the political space, in order to sustain populist mobilization in these countries. However, this is not the case with the PP in Norway. One possible explanation is that already before the PP emerged, other political parties in Norway, such as the Centre Party, occupied the niche of national myths in the electoral market.

    En studie av interaktionen vid livsmedelskontroll: Ett intersektionellt perspektiv på mötet mellan livsmedelsinspektörer och restaurangägare och -personal2016Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Livsmedelskontroll är en del av arbetet inom Miljöförvaltningen i Stockholms stad och arbetet innefattar bland annat inspektioner av restauranger i Stockholmsområdet där det är av vikt att inspektionerna utförs opartiskt och professionellt. Syftet med studien ”En studie av interaktionen vid livsmedelskontroll – ett intersektionellt perspektiv på mötet mellan livsmedelsinspektörer och restaurangägare och -personal, skriven av Helga Holmgren och Parisa Meidanipour, är att ta reda på hur livsmedelsinspektörer och restaurangägare och -personal interagerar med varandra. Studien har en kvalitativ ansats där observationer och intervjuer genomförts. De teoretiska ramverken i uppsatsen är ett intersektionellt perspektiv, delar av Goffmans dramaturgiska perspektiv och Foucaults maktperspektiv. Resultaten visar framförallt att ett bra samarbete mellan inspektören och restaurangägare och -personal är en förutsättning för att arbetet kan genomföras. De visar vidare att restaurangägare och -personal såväl som inspektörer använder olika strategier under mötet för att upprätthålla sina fasader. Makten är ständigt närvarande i relationen mellan inspektör och restaurangägare och -personal men vem som innehar makten i interaktionen skiftar.

    Still awaiting the storm?: The Swedish welfare state after the latest crisis2016Ingår i: Challenges to European Welfare Systems / [ed] K. Schubert, P. de Villota, J. Kuhlmann, Springer, 2016, s. 671-691Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the challenges to the Swedish welfare state after the credit crunch of 2008 focusing on several major challenges: the government’s reaction to the fiscal and economic crisis and its outcomes, the (re)balance of welfare policies addressing risks and opportunities. While the situation is almost excellent from a purely fiscal point of view, the outstanding private debt, unemployment, especially among youth, pressures on the pension, health and education systems are prominent concerns. They have led to the revitalization of the social investment paradigm, strict budgetary policies, increased number of welfare-to-work programmes and focus on using tax reductions as a means of stimulating the labour market. In this context, the main demographic concerns and social integration have come to the fore to an unprecedented extent.

    Trends in socioeconomic inequalities in self-assessed health in 17 European countries between 1990 and 20102016Ingår i: Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, ISSN 0143-005X, E-ISSN 1470-2738, Vol. 70, nr 7, s. 644-652Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Between the 1990s and 2000s, relative inequalities in all-cause mortality increased, whereas absolute inequalities decreased in many European countries. Whether similar trends can be observed for inequalities in other health outcomes is unknown. This paper aims to provide a comprehensive overview of trends in socioeconomic inequalities in self-assessed health (SAH) in Europe between 1990 and 2010.

    METHODS: Data were obtained from nationally representative surveys from 17 European countries for the various years between 1990 and 2010. The age-standardised prevalence of less-than-good SAH was analysed by education and occupation among men and women aged 30-79 years. Socioeconomic inequalities were measured by means of absolute rate differences and relative rate ratios. Meta-analysis with random-effects models was used to examine the trends of inequalities.

    RESULTS: We observed declining trends in the prevalence of less-than-good SAH in many countries, particularly in Southern and Eastern Europe and the Baltic states. In all countries, less-than-good SAH was more prevalent in lower educational and manual groups. For all countries together, absolute inequalities in SAH were mostly constant, whereas relative inequalities increased. Almost no country consistently experienced a significant decline in either absolute or relative inequalities.

    CONCLUSIONS: Trends in inequalities in SAH in Europe were generally less favourable than those found for inequalities in mortality, and there was generally no correspondence between the two when we compared the trends within countries. In order to develop policies or interventions that effectively reduce inequalities in SAH, a better understanding of the causes of these inequalities is needed.

    Does class matter in anti-austerity protests?: Social class, attitudes towards inequality, and political trust in European demonstrations in a time of economic crisis2015Ingår i: Austerity and Protest: Popular Contention in Times of Economic Crisis / [ed] Marco Giugni & Maria T. Grasso, Farnham: Ashgate, 2015, s. 83-107Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this chapter, we compare the class composition of four types of anti-austerity demonstrations—Occupy/Indignados, trade union, May Day and other anti-austerity protests—with “new social movement” demonstrations. This allow us to, firstly, scrutinize whether contemporary anti-austerity protests attract more participants from the lower classes—in particular the working class—than from the upper strata. Since austerity policies tend to affect the general population differently, and in particular worsen the social conditions for the lower classes, it is interesting to see whether these policies mobilize the groups that are primarily affected by them. In this comparison, we explore and analyze survey data from 75 demonstrations collected within the research program “Caught in the Act of Protest: Contextualizing Contestation” (CCC). Secondly, we use the same data to examine the impact of social class on political attitudes among protesters, focusing issues that have been at the forefront during the last few years’ wave of protest: deepening social inequality, welfare privatization, and distrust in political elites. This analysis allow us to scrutinize to which degree the “framing” of the protests possibly contributes to the demonstrators’ attitudes towards austerity measures, economic inequality and their governments—or if the attitudes of the protesters are best explained by their individual social class, or even the national context in which the demonstration takes place.Social class is measured in two different ways. First, with the recently developed occupation-based Oesch class scheme, in which class is conceptualized as the individual’s “objective” position in the labor market. Secondly, we focus individuals’ self-categorizations of which class they belong to, i.e. their class identity, which can be seen as the “subjective” side of class. Our analysis also show the different merits of these two conceptualizations of class for analyzing political protests.

    Adverse childhood experiences, exposure to a natural disaster and posttraumatic stress disorder among survivors of the 2011 Great East Japan earthquake and tsunami2019Ingår i: Epidemiology and Psychiatric Sciences, ISSN 2045-7960, E-ISSN 1827-4331, Vol. 28, nr 1, s. 45-53Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Aims.: To investigate whether adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) modify the impact of exposure to a natural disaster (the 2011 Great East Japan earthquake and tsunami) on the occurrence of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) among older people. Methods.: Data were collected as part of the Japan Gerontological Evaluation Study (JAGES), which is an on-going epidemiological survey investigating social determinants of health among older people across Japan. Information on PTSD symptoms based on the Screening Questionnaire for Disaster Mental Health, traumatic exposure to the earthquake (i.e., house damage and loss of relatives/friends during the earthquake/tsunami) and ACEs was obtained from 580 participants aged 65 or older living in Iwanuma City, Miyagi Prefecture, which suffered severe damage as a result of the earthquake and the subsequent tsunami in March 2011. Associations were examined using Poisson regression analysis with a robust variance estimator after adjusting for covariates. Results.: The prevalence of PTSD was 9.7% in this population; compared to those with no traumatic experience, the prevalence of PTSD was approximately two times higher among those who experienced the loss of close friends/relatives (PR = 1.84, 95% CI = 1.11–3.03, p = 0.018), or whose house was damaged (PR = 2.15, 95% CI = 1.07–4.34, p = 0.032). ACE was not significantly associated with PTSD. Stratified analyses by the presence of ACE showed that damage due to the earthquake/tsunami was associated with PTSD only among those without ACEs; more specifically, among non-ACE respondents the PR of PTSD associated with house damage was 6.67 (95% CI = 1.66–26.80), while for the loss of a relative or a close friend it was 3.56 (95% CI = 1.18–10.75). In contrast, no statistically significant associations were observed among those with ACEs. Conclusion.: Following the Great East Japan earthquake/tsunami in 2011 a higher risk of developing PTSD symptoms was observed in 2013 especially among older individuals without ACEs. This suggests that ACEs might affect how individuals respond to subsequent traumatic events later in life.

    Month of birth is associated with mortality among older people in Japan: Findings from the JAGES cohort2016Ingår i: Chronobiology International, ISSN 0742-0528, E-ISSN 1525-6073, Vol. 33, nr 4, s. 441-447Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Month of birth (MOB) has been linked to a variety of health conditions in adulthood. This study examined the association between MOB and mortality among the healthy elderly in Japan, where a practice of traditional age reckoning was employed up until the late 1940s. The results showed male participants born in December were more likely to die earlier while those born in January had lower mortality. It is possible that social factors in early life, such as the time period when a birth is officially registered, may have implications for health that stretch across the life course.

    The association between economic development, lifestyle differentiation, and C-reactive protein concentration within rural communities in Hainan Island, China2016Ingår i: American Journal of Human Biology, ISSN 1042-0533, E-ISSN 1520-6300, Vol. 28, nr 2, s. 186-196Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: Earlier fieldwork in rural areas of Hainan Island, China, demonstrated that during the course of economic development increasing differences had emerged in lifestyles within communities. It is possible that these variations might have stratified residents into subpopulations with different health attributes. This study examined the association between C-reactive protein (CRP) concentration, a biomarker of future cardiovascular events, and personal lifestyle parameters and the degree of community-level economic development among rural communities. Methods: A cross-sectional field survey was undertaken in 19 rural communities in Hainan. Convenience sampling was used to recruit 1,744 participants. Dried blood spot samples were collected to measure high-sensitivity CRP concentration. Sex-stratified multilevel regression analyses were conducted to identify factors associated with CRP concentration among the participants. Results: While CRP concentration was negatively associated with being married and (more) education among men, for women CRP concentration was associated with the frequency of poultry consumption (P = 0.014) and the experience of migratory work in the previous year (P = 0.009). In addition, for females, living in communities with a greater degree of inequality, as indexed by the Gini coefficient, was also associated with increased CRP concentration (P = 0.003). Conclusion: Given that CRP concentration is a marker of future CVD risk, this study suggests that within these previously homogenous rural communities, economic development might have stratified people into population subgroups with a different CVD risk.

    Neighborhood Characteristics and Cardiovascular Risk among Older People in Japan: Findings from the JAGES Project2016Ingår i: PLoS ONE, ISSN 1932-6203, E-ISSN 1932-6203, Vol. 11, nr 10, artikel-id e0164525Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous studies have found an association between neighborhood characteristics (i.e., aspects of the physical and social environment) and the incidence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and elevated CVD risk. This study investigated the relationship between neighborhood characteristics and CVD risk among older people in Japan where research on this association is scarce. Data came from the Japan Gerontological Evaluation Study project; questionnaire data collected from 3,810 people aged 65 years or older living in 20 primary school districts in Aichi prefecture, Japan, was linked to a computed composite CVD risk score based on biomarker data (i.e., hemoglobin A1c, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and estimated glomerular filtration rate). A sex-stratified multilevel linear regression analysis revealed that for male participants, living in neighborhoods with a higher perceived occurrence of traffic accidents and reduced personal safety was associated with an elevated CVD risk (coefficient = 1.08 per interquartile range increase, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 0.30 to 1.86) whereas males living in neighborhoods with a higher perceived proximity of exercise facilities had a lower risk (coefficient = −1.00, 95% CI = −1.78 to −0.21). For females, there was no statistically significant association between neighborhood characteristics and CVD risk. This study suggests that aspects of the neighborhood environment might be important for CVD morbidity and mortality in Japan, particularly among men.

    Post-political regulation: Soft power and post-political visions in global governance2013Ingår i: Critical Sociology, ISSN 0896-9205, E-ISSN 1569-1632, Vol. 39, nr 3, s. 421-437Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The debate on global governance points to shifts in the type and nature of regulation as well asin the set of actors involved. The article introduces a novel way of conceptualizing the changes,namely a move towards post-political forms of regulation (see also Garsten and Jacobsson, 2007).Drawing on Chantal Mouffe’s notion of ‘the post-political vision’, the article argues that manycontemporary forms of regulation are premised on consensual relationships as the basis forregulatory activity. These regulatory practices tend to narrow down the conflictual space, therebyexerting a form of soft power. Moreover, in the post-political forms of regulation, unequal powerrelations tend to be rendered invisible. The empirical cases discussed are voluntary regulatoryarrangements, more specifically the Open Method of Coordination of the EU (OMC) and CSR(Corporate Social Responsibility) initiatives.
