    (Un)making the established-outsiders figuration in anti-racist and migrant rights activism2024Ingår i: Current Sociology, ISSN 0011-3921, E-ISSN 1461-7064, Vol. 72, nr 1, s. 48-64Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The article discusses recent anti-racist and migrant rights activism in Finland with the help of Norbert Elias' figurational sociology and the concept of the established-outsiders figuration. The mobilisation of 'outsiders' (racialised minorities and migrants) has reordered the contemporary field and challenged the 'established' majority activists to reflect on their own practices. Through combining figurational and cultural perspectives, I compare the extent to which established liberal and left-libertarian activists, with their distinct ideological positions, have succeeded in transforming the power ratio between themselves and the outsiders. This article advances the use of the established-outsiders conceptualisation in cases where the established support, in principle, the outsiders' inclusion. This helps to shed light on both the more covert and subtle ways through which the established reproduce their power as well as their agency in dismantling the power disparity.

    Emergency welfare states in action: Social policy adaptations to COVID‐19 in the Czechia, Hungary and Slovakia2024Ingår i: Social Policy & Administration, ISSN 0144-5596, E-ISSN 1467-9515, Vol. 58, nr 1, s. 93-107Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyses the developments of the welfare state's reaction to the pandemic in Czechia, Hungary and Slovakia during 2020–2022, asking whether the changes in social policy represent only temporary responses to the challenges of the pandemic, or if the changes will likely lead to long-run transformative changes in social policies. All three countries applied emergency adaptive changes to some extent except for job protection, as the short-time work schemes represent a permanent change in Czechia and Slovakia. Furthermore, the absorption capacity of the welfare state was relatively good, which enabled the countries to avoid the negative social impacts of the crisis in terms of increased unemployment, poverty, and social exclusion. We argue the governments did not introduce permanent third-order change because they already introduced such changes during the transition to the market economy in which they introduced a low-expenditure welfare state trajectory. During the pandemic, this trajectory limited their fiscal space for introducing reforms that could radically expand the welfare state. Policy learning and political constellations also had some influence.

    Memory Entrepreneurship: Armenian Genocide Recognition in Europe2024Ingår i: International Studies Quarterly, ISSN 0020-8833, E-ISSN 1468-2478, Vol. 68, nr 1, artikel-id sqad100Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Scholars have analyzed how political actors appropriate Holocaust-related memory laws to whitewash the past and undermine democratic traditions in various European countries. However, political actors in Europe have debated several other memory laws, which far-right MPs appropriate to serve their own purposes. The recognition of the Armenian Genocide is an understudied example of this phenomenon. Drawing from data collected in four countries—Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Latvia, and Sweden—this analysis introduces the rhetorical strategies of memory justification and memory extrapolation to examine how far-right MPs, in very distinct geopolitical contexts, appropriate and instrumentalize Armenian Genocide memory to attack pluralism and promote their own versions of Europe. Through an analysis of the instrumentalization of the Armenian Genocide, this article examines a growing crisis at the center of contemporary European politics. This crisis, which involves actors promoting very different goals and values, increasingly threatens the socio-political cohesion of Europe.

    Examining the long-term reduction in commuting emissions from working from home2024Ingår i: Transportation Research Part D: Transport and Environment, ISSN 1361-9209, E-ISSN 1879-2340, Vol. 127, artikel-id 104063Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    To develop effective climate strategies, it is necessary to model the long-term impacts of combined policy measures. This study examines how an increase in working-from-home (WFH) practices, coupled with higher private car fleet penetration of electric vehicles (EVs), could change commuting patterns and associated emissions. Simulations for the Dublin Region show that if half of white-collar workers were WFH and EVs made up one-third of the fleet as forecasted for 2030, emissions from travel activities could be reduced by up to 35% for carbon dioxide (CO2) and 25% for particulate matter (PM). However, transitioning from a moderate to a high WFH scenario may not deliver significant benefits in terms of travel length, modal shift, and emissions reduction. In addition, a decrease in commuter trips can lead to an increase in other trips. This suggests that there is a need for additional measures to discourage car usage when commuter trips decline.

    Exploring the Alternatives to the Male-Breadwinner Model: The Implications for Social Policy Study2024Ingår i: Social Policy and Society, ISSN 1474-7464, E-ISSN 1475-3073, s. 1-12Artikel, forskningsöversikt (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article begins by discussing some of the main approaches that have emerged to gender and family policy, before proceeding to discuss more modern trends. It begins by discussing institutional approaches, such as the male-breadwinner model, defamilialisation, degenderisation. Then it discusses cultural approaches, such as the national ideals of care, gendered moral rationalities, and Hakim’s preference theory. Then this article continues by briefly discussing attempts to broaden the discussion by bringing in children (including through the capabilities approach) and by adding an intersectional perspective.

    Sacred Language in the Borderlands: Discussions on the Language of Belarusian Catholicism2024Ingår i: Nationalities Papers, ISSN 0090-5992, E-ISSN 1465-3923, Vol. 52, nr 2, s. 446-460Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article considers in detail the choosing of a language for the liturgy and sermons in Roman Catholic parishes in Belarus. The choice of the Belarusian language is part of a deliberate nation-building policy by the Catholic Church. Moreover, a whole network of local peculiarities, historical stereotypes, and political attitudes is concealed beneath the unified cover of a preference for the use of the Belarusian language. Based on interviews with clergy and religious activists, the article shows that the Roman Catholic Church repeatedly works out compromise solutions that allow it to adapt to the pressures of the state and believers going through a process of contradictory and conflicting nation-building.

    Filling the Demand Gap: The Success of Centrist Entrepreneurial Populism in the Czech Republic2024Ingår i: Europe-Asia Studies, ISSN 0966-8136, E-ISSN 1465-3427, Vol. 76, nr 3, s. 363-387Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article argues that a new type of populism is emerging that combines entrepreneurial populism with centrist populism and takes as an example the success of the Czech party ANO and its leader Andrej Babis. Entrepreneurial populist leaders are businesspeople who claim that because they have been successful in running a business, they can run a government efficiently, like a business. Entrepreneurial populists lack a coherent ideology and instead take advantage of where the political opening is greatest in the political spectrum. In the Czech Republic in the 2010s the opening was greatest in the centre, as much of the population had social liberal attitudes, although there were no social liberal parties to represent them. To test these hypotheses, the article presents a series of regression models explaining party vote choice in the 2013 and 2017 Czech elections. The findings confirm a demand for a centrist social liberal party that did not exist at that time.

    Crisis? What crisis? Social policy when crises are and are not crises in Czechia, Hungary and Slovakia2024Ingår i: Social Policy & Administration, ISSN 0144-5596, E-ISSN 1467-9515, Vol. 58, nr 2, s. 228-247Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, we analyse how different governments have dealt with situations, labelled as ‘crises’ in the international and national discourses. More specifically, we analyse how the Czech, Hungarian and Slovak governments framed and dealt with their social policies during the 2008 ‘financial crisis’, the 2015 ‘refugee crisis’, and the 2020 ‘Covid crisis’. We argue that sometimes governments and the mass media frame the situation as a crisis, when objectively it would be hard to argue empirically that there really was a crisis. At other times, according to objective criteria, there is ample evidence that there is indeed a crisis, but the government tries to deny it for political reasons. Despite differences in objective conditions and differences in political constellations, none of the policymakers in the three countries took advantage of the windows of opportunity that the alleged crises presented to carry out path-changing social policy? changes. Instead, the changes we rather small and usually only temporary; thus, showing the importance of path dependency even during crisis situations.

    Memory Fusion, Diplomatic Agency, and Armenian Genocide Recognition in the Czech Republic2024Ingår i: International Political Sociology, ISSN 1749-5679, E-ISSN 1749-5687, Vol. 18, nr 2, artikel-id olae003Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Scholars often emphasize how right-wing political actors in Europe use memory laws to undermine democratic traditions and revise historical accounts. But a broad range of political actors (with diverse motivations) support memory laws. Synthesizing research in international political sociology and memory politics, this analysis examines the relational and social practices of diplomats from small states and the creative strategies of center-left political insiders in the creation and passage of memory laws. Based on data collected in the Czech Republic, the article investigates how relational and social dynamics, in part, inspired members of parliament (from the Czech Social Democratic Party) to insert Armenian Genocide recognition into memory laws about the Holocaust and Second World War in the Chamber of Deputies (2017) and the Senate (2020) – a strategy I refer to as memory fusion. In developing the framework of memory fusion, however, the findings also explore how Turkish diplomats use a similar strategy to pursue their own goals.

    Does Performance Matter?: The Influence of Attitudes Towards Welfare State Performance on Voting for Rightwing and Leftwing Populist Parties2024Ingår i: Social Policy and Society, ISSN 1474-7464, E-ISSN 1475-3073Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent decades, populist parties and leaders have obtained great political success. Since populism plays on voter dissatisfaction with the political elite, we might expect that dissatisfaction with the welfare state should also play a role. In this study, we suggest measures to assess welfare state performance (WSP), and we examine how assessment of WSP helps to explain support for the populist political parties– both rightwing and leftwing. Our findings are based on the sixth round of European Social Survey data that has a special module on democracy, which includes questions that enables us to measure WSP. This article shows that WSPis a significant predictor in explaining support for populist parties, but the dynamics differ between how WSP influences support for leftwing populist (LWP) and rightwing populist (RWP) parties.

    The role of experts in forming family policy under an adversarial subsystem in the Czech Republic2023Ingår i: International Journal of Social Welfare, ISSN 1369-6866, E-ISSN 1468-2397, Vol. 32, nr 1, s. 101-112Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyzes the interplay between policymakers and scientists in developing the Family Policy Plan for the Czech Republic in 2017. As former members of the government commission that developed the plan, we base the article on participatory observation. When we joined the commission, a 'window of opportunity' had opened as the country for the first time ever had feminist-friendly minister and vice-minister of labour and social affairs. We explain why due to the inter- and intra-party dynamics, the parental leave reform to introduce 'daddy months' failed. We argue an adversarial subsystem existed in that the three coalition partners disagreed on the reform. According to Ingold and Gschwend (2014), under such circumstances, scientists play a strategic role, especially if there is unity among them. However, although there was basic unity among the scientists in the commission, the coalition partners at the governing level were able to block or water down the reform proposal under the study.

    The central European world of fatherhood policies: how individual attitudes mediate the norm of threeness in the Czech Republic and Slovakia2023Ingår i: Journal of Family Studies, ISSN 1322-9400, E-ISSN 1839-3543, Vol. 29, nr 1Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Here is the shorter abstract: Following Rush's suggestion to explore differences across cultures, our study compares the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Appyling Rush's discussion of how individual attitudes function as mediators, we analyse how attitudes mediate the norm of threeness. We interviewed 79 parents in both countries and our results show that despite the cultural differences between the countries, there is great support for the norm of threeness. Nevertheless, individual attitudes mediate between culture differently among men than women. About 1/3 of fathers would ideally want to share part of the leave time while no mothers support this. Furthermore, most men would prefer to share the leave time if there were no economic loss, while few mothers support the idea. Apparently, mothers do not trust fathers. Our interviews give reason to believe that if well-paid father quotas were introduced and more fathers went on leave, mothers would start to trust fathers.

    Rethinking intoxicated sexual encounters2023Ingår i: Drugs: education prevention and policy, ISSN 0968-7637, E-ISSN 1465-3370, Vol. 30, nr 1, s. 31-41Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Social research on alcohol and sexual encounters has tended to be siloed into several different research endeavors, each addressing separate aspects of wanted and unwanted sexual encounters. While sociologists have focused on the patterns of social interaction, status competition, and emotional hierarchies of sexual encounters, they have left the role of alcohol intoxication largely unexamined. Conversely, the two dominant approaches to sexual encounters within alcohol research, the theories of alcohol myopia and alcohol expectancy, while focusing on alcohol have tended to take little account of the socio-relational dynamics and gendered meanings involved in those encounters. Our aim in this theoretical paper is to begin to bring together some of the concepts from these different research strands in examining how the social processes of intoxication potentially impact heteronormative sexual scripts and hence notions of femininity and masculinity among cisgender, heterosexual women and men. Our discussion is focused on the concepts of ritual and scripts; power, status, and hierarchies; and socio-spatial contexts, which are central to an understanding of the gendered and embodied social practices that take place within intoxicated sexual events; the emotional nature of the socio-spatial contexts within which they occur; and the socio-structural conditions that frame these events.

    A wolf in sheep's clothing: Exposing the structural violence of private electric automobility2023Ingår i: Energy Research & Social Science, ISSN 2214-6296, E-ISSN 2214-6326, Vol. 99, artikel-id 103052Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The world is running out of time to avoid cataclysmic climate impacts. Therefore, determining which decarbonisation strategies are more effective and inclusive in reducing anthropogenic dependency on fossil fuels is vital for governments' decisions on investment. This research argues that the electrification of private automobility is neither effective nor equitable. Considering the current electricity mix of the grid, this electrification merely shifts the CO2 emissions and other pollutants from urban to rural areas. The strategy of private automobility electrification does not look beyond the problem of tailpipe emissions and hence cannot eliminate the deficiencies of the car-dependent system that require system-wide solutions, such as traffic congestion and road accidents. Prioritising this strategy not only maintains existing inequities but also increases social injustice and delays the implementation of more effective interventions. We argue that using private EVs structurally violates the biosphere and human communities in three ways: (1) production of inequities, (2) pollution and waste, and (3) the space of the exception (the ‘Electric Vehicle Bubble’). Finally, we conclude that eradicating private automobility is necessary to realise climate and transport justice. Focusing on inclusive strategies, such as supporting public transportation, shared mobility, and active travel modes, instead of offering incentives for EVs, are the means of progressive redistribution of wealth and can satisfactorily meet people's basic needs and governmental climate targets.

    When Do Radical Flanks Use Violence? Conditions for Violent Protest in Radical Left-Libertarian Activism in Sweden, 1997–20162023Ingår i: Terrorism and Political Violence, ISSN 0954-6553, E-ISSN 1556-1836, s. 1-20Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Descriptions of social movement factionalism are often based on the dichotomous conception of lawful moderates and violent radicals. In this article, we nuance this distinction by illustrating the complexity of radical flanks through an empirically grounded analysis of protest tactics, in which we ask under what conditions radical flanks are likely to use violent protest tactics. Exploring dominant explanations of political violence, the article shows the necessity of understanding the use of violent protest tactics as part of cognitive and relational processes. The use of violent tactics varies greatly across frames and protest issues, pointing to how different logics of protest are tied to different frames. Also, the use of violence is affected by the presence or absence of moderate allies; the likelihood of violence clearly decreases when radicals and moderates form coalitions when organising protests. The analysis is based on a protest event data set covering over 3,900 nonviolent and violent events by the Radical Left-Libertarian Movement in Sweden, 1997–2016. Notably, the results hold over this entire twenty-year period, suggesting that they are robust and provide a better explanation than historically contingent causes.

    Pathways to decarbonising the transport sector: The impacts of electrifying taxi fleets2023Ingår i: Renewable & sustainable energy reviews, ISSN 1364-0321, E-ISSN 1879-0690, Vol. 174, artikel-id 113160Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The impacts of climate change have prompted governments to pledge to introduce policies aiming to limit the increasing temperature. One of the strategies involves reducing and, eventually, eliminating internal combustion engines in favour of electric vehicles. This strategy has been implemented by many transportation services, and FREE NOW has pledged to be carbon neutral by 2030. This study analyses the FREE NOW taxi fleet composition in Dublin in 2021 and investigates the reduction in emissions from fully electrifying the fleet. The analysis uses an emissions tool to model a combination of scenarios, consisting of different vehicle powertrain and fuel type configurations. An emission factor is applied to the EVs to calculate the emissions produced by the electricity used to power the vehicles. The results show a 77% decrease in carbon dioxide emissions from fully electrifying the fleet. Multi-criteria analysis is used to assess the strengths and weaknesses of each scenario developed. The S-5 scenario, consisting of the EVs only, scored the highest for many of the criteria. S-5 was identified as the best option for the taxi fleet, followed closely by S-4 involving an upgrade to all plug-in hybrid EVs. The S-4 scenario seems to be a good alternative when an EV is too expensive or access to charging infrastructure is not provided. The infrastructure currently available in Dublin will not accommodate the all-EV taxis target by 2030.

    Fear, Anger, Hope, and Pride: Negative and Positive Emotions in Electoral Behaviour2023Ingår i: Sociológia (Bratislava), ISSN 0049-1225, E-ISSN 1336-8613, Vol. 55, nr 2, s. 153-176Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    It is becoming increasingly clear that emotions play a crucial role in voting decisions. This is especially true when it comes to choosing populist parties. This article uses a unique dataset to analyse the interplay between emotions and support for various types of populist parties in Slovakia. It contributes to the discourse by testing the competing hypotheses on what kinds of emotions matter in a post-communist country with multiple types of populist parties. Our results show that although previous studies have tended to concentrate on emotions toward the political or economic situation, feelings toward political leaders actually have greater importance, at least in the Slovak, post-communist context. Our study also indicates that the types of emotions differ depending on whether the populist party has already been in power or not. Contrary to expectations, fear has played a more important role than anger and in general, emotions are more important for rightwing and leftwing populist parties than for non-populist or centrist populist parties.

    Beyond brokering for recruitment: Education agents in Armenia2023Ingår i: Population, Space and Place, ISSN 1544-8444, E-ISSN 1544-8452, Vol. 29, nr 1, artikel-id e2622Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    International student migration (ISM) makes up an increasingly significant part of all international migration. Scholars have unpacked various aspects of this global mobility. While ISM scholarship has largely focused on a particular stream of migration—namely, student migration from the Global South to the Global North—recent studies have expanded this research to include more diverse case studies. ISM scholarship has also analysed education agents, who provide migration infrastructures and enable student mobility (or, in some cases, immobility). But the scholarship's characterisations of these agents remain somewhat limited: Studies focus largely on the oversized role agents play in student recruitment processes—that is, as those who enable initial mobility. This paper analyzes a unique case study—Indian medical students in Yerevan, Armenia—to unpack education agents' extensive, oftentimes problematic roles in structuring students' postmigration experiences.

    Governing anticipation: UNESCO making humankind futures literate2023Ingår i: Journal of Organizational Ethnography, ISSN 2046-6749, E-ISSN 2046-6757, Vol. 12, nr 1Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose This paper explores practices of foresight within the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) program Futures Literacy, as a form of transnational governmentality-founded on the interests of "using the future" by "emancipating" the minds of humanity. Design/methodology/approach The paper draws on ethnographic material gathered over five years within the industry of futures consultancy, including UNESCO and its network of self-recognized futurists. The material consists of written sources, participant observation in on-site and digital events and workshops, and interviews. Findings Building on Foucault's (1991) concept of governmentality, which refers to the governing of governing and how subjects politically come into being, this paper critically examines the UNESCO Futures Literacy program by answering questions on ontology, deontology, technology and utopia. It shows how the underlying rationale of the Futures Literacy program departs from an ontological premise of anticipation as a fundamental capacity of biological life, constituting an ethical substance that can be worked on and self-controlled. This rationale speaks to the mandate of UNESCO, to foster peace in our minds, but also to the governing of governing at the individual level. Originality/value In the intersection between the growing literature on anticipation and research concerning governmentality the paper adds ethnographically based knowledge to the field of transnational governance. Earlier ethnographic studies of UNESCO have mostly focused upon its role for cultural heritage, or more broadly neoliberal forms of governing.

    Do communicators take over?: Mediatization and conflicts in civil society2023Ingår i: Politics and Policy, ISSN 1555-5623, E-ISSN 1747-1346, Vol. 51, nr 2, s. 184-200Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The article investigates internal strategies and struggles in civil society organizations' (CSOs') policy advocacy work from the vantage point of policy professionals by using the concepts of field, symbolic capital, and logics. A main claim is that mediatization acts as a strategic-tension mechanism within a CSO, putting communicators at the center of policy units, which in turn is consequential for the strategies chosen for the organization's policy work. In this way, mediatization as a process celebrates certain professionals and strategies as particularly relevant, creating frustration among employees not specializing in communication. The study identifies a trend for organizations to put more resources and influence into communication and less into actual policy analysis. This article combines research on organizational logics, policy professionals, and mediatization by drawing on 38 interviews with, and ethnographic work among, policy professionals in Sweden, Latvia, and the Netherlands.

    Empowerment not racialised segregation2023Ingår i: British Journal of Sociology of Education, ISSN 0142-5692, E-ISSN 1465-3346, Vol. 44, nr 5, s. 912-926Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this paper is to investigate the ‘equalising effect of schools’ in general and two concrete interventions that have been carried out recently in Sweden in particular. The first of these interventions is the closing down of schools in deprived neighbourhoods and moving pupils to other schools. The second is ‘empowerment’–i.e., creating an inclusive and supportive pedagogical school environment for students with working-class and immigrant backgrounds. As findings from previous Swedish studies regarding the first intervention show, an equalising effect will not be achieved without considering the ‘school climate’ of mixed schools. The findings from this case study of a school located in a deprived suburb of Stockholm County indicate that even schools in these areas are able to equalise educational opportunities through building an alliance between students, parents and community activists on the one hand and bi-class and bi-cultural brokers like teachers and social workers on the other.

    Generation-based position taking: Unpacking Finland’s decision to join NATO2023Ingår i: Party Politics, ISSN 1354-0688, E-ISSN 1460-3683Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Scholars have identified the important roles personal characteristics — such as religion, gender, and race — play in influencing policymakers' position-taking behavior. One important yet overlooked personal characteristic is generation. This personal characteristic is not only influencing individual policymakers’ position-taking behavior; it is also changing some important political realities across Europe. An illustrative example of these changes is Finland's decision to join NATO. Based on documentary analyses of parliamentary speeches and personal interviews with Finnish officials, this article demonstrates that Russia’s 2022 invasion of Ukraine revealed already established, generation-based cleavages among MPs whose parties had long opposed the prospect of joining NATO. The speeches also reveal a dynamic and evolving orientation to the Baltic states among an emerging political cohort of Finnish MPs, who have been socialized in a fully EU-integrated Finland.

    Constructivist memory politics: Armenian genocide recognition in Latvia2023Ingår i: International Affairs, ISSN 0020-5850, E-ISSN 1468-2346, Vol. 99, nr 2, s. 805-824Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Scholars have done a great deal to unpack the motivations sitting behind nationalists’ appropriation of Holocaust-related memory laws in several eastern European and Baltic states. While these accounts have shed important light on memory politics, there remains much scope for further study. For example, several Eastern European and Baltic states have passed resolutions recognizing the Armenian genocide, as well. Furthermore, the existing literature does not provide any analytical tools to conceptualize the dynamic and complex processes giving rise to memory laws. This article broadens the memory laws scholarship through an original analysis of Latvia's Armenian genocide recognition resolution of 2021. The findings highlight how diverse actors support and pass memory laws through a process of constructivist memory politics. Constructivist memory politics involves the strategies political actors employ to change the salience or meaning of historical events in the creation and promotion of memory laws. Although the analysis focuses on a single case, it provides the analytical tools to reorient how scholars approach memory laws both in Europe and elsewhere.

    Diasporic multiculturalism2023Ingår i: Current Sociology, ISSN 0011-3921, E-ISSN 1461-7064Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Noting an overreliance on North American and European-based understandings of race and ethnicity, many sociologists have called for research in new spaces. But the same conceptual and regional limitations apply to several other studies. One example of this is multiculturalism. Scholars tend to associate multiculturalism with international migration and ethnic pluralism. As such, they typically study multiculturalism in the most ethnically diverse (and often most affluent) countries – that is, in Europe and North America. But international migration does not always result in ethnic pluralism. For example, diasporic return migration often leads to the convergence of internally diverse co-ethnic populations in ethnically homogeneous nation-states. The diasporic ‘returnees’, who were born outside of their perceived homelands, come through targeted migration policies, face various levels of discrimination, and yet contribute significantly to the economic development and cultural diversity of the countries to which they relocate. As such, this article argues that the multiculturalization of monoethnic nationhood is substantially driven by diasporic return migration. In exploring diasporic multiculturalism, the article draws from data collected in Yerevan, Armenia.

    Radical Left Movements in Scandinavia, 1980–2020: Straddling Militant Counterculture and Popular Movements2023Ingår i: The Palgrave Handbook of Left-Wing Extremism, Volume 1 / [ed] Zúquete, José Pedro, Cham: Palgrave Macmillan, 2023, s. 281-304Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter describes the development of radical left activism in Scandinavia in the post-war period, with a particular focus on the last four decades. During this period, the main tendency in radical left activism shifted from party-based Marxism-Leninism to network-based, direct-action activism based on libertarian socialist ideals. Combining secondary literature with original quantitative and qualitative data on the radical left-libertarian movements (RLLM) in Sweden and Denmark, this chapter shows how RLLM activism emerged, expanded, and ultimately declined between the early 1980s and late 2010s. While there are key differences between the countries in terms of timing and issue foci, the chapter emphasizes the similarities between the countries. Tracing the movements’ development through sequential phases, the chapter shows them shifting from direct-action networks that engaged in a variety of political issue—anti-fascism, anti-imperialism, feminism, animal rights, etc.—to more “conventional” networks of organizations and initiatives through which activists intervened in local politics and neighborhood and workplace conflicts. The same period also saw the RLLM become less disruptive and violent, in favor of tactical pragmatism and conventional forms of protest. The chapter explains these changes as a combination of four main processes: (1) movement-internal developments, (2) changes in the countercultural milieus surrounding the movement, (3) the political institutionalization of the movement’s main counterpart, the far right, and (4) new patterns of protest policing and state repression.

    ”Inte den typiska höginkomsttagaren.” Självuppfattning och klassidentifikation bland höginkomsttagare i Sverige2023Ingår i: ARKIV. Tidskrift för samhällsanalys, ISSN 2000-6225, E-ISSN 2000-6217, nr 15, s. 81-115Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [sv]

    Under de senaste decennierna har inkomstojämlikheten ökat i Sverige, och höginkomsttagare tillhör vinnarna. Men trots sin privilegierade position har gruppeni hög grad varit frånvarande i forskningen om klass. I Mikael Svenssons och Lena Sohls artikel får vi därför en välbehövlig inblick i svenska höginkomsttagares klassidentifikation och självuppfattning. Författarna har intervjuat 25 personer som tillhör de 10 procenten med högst löneinkomster i Sverige och analyserar hur de resonerar om sig själva som höginkomsttagare och om sin klassposition. Intervjupersonerna ser sig som ekonomiskt privilegierade, till exempel i det att de sällan behöver oroa sig för pengar och har en trygg framtid tack vare hög utbildning och en säker position på arbetsmarknaden. Samtidigt vill de inte identifiera sig som höginkomsttagare, men däremot som medelklass eller övre medelklass. Deras sätt att resonera om klass ligger i linje med den ökade medelklassidentifikationen i Sverige, inte minst genom de positiva värden som de kopplar till medelklassen och den övre medelklassen.

    Sweden's ‘complicated’ relationship with genocide recognition2023Ingår i: Acta Sociologica, ISSN 0001-6993, E-ISSN 1502-3869, Vol. 66, nr 4, s. 388-401Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Scholars have unpacked the rhetorically nuanced ways political actors alter state narratives in resisting pressure to comply with international norms. But many of these rhetorical strategies apply in other contexts, where there exists sufficient norm ambiguity, too. For example, in response to Turkey's long-standing denialism, many governments have been asked to recognise the Armenian Genocide (or 1915 Genocide of Christians in the Ottoman Empire). But, because there exists no clear international norm about recognising genocides perpetuated by other states, even some of the most unlikely government officials adapt their rhetoric to resist recognition and pursue ulterior foreign policy objectives. Building on Dixon's rhetorical adaptation framework, this article argues that, between 1999 and 2021, Swedish political actors often adapted their rhetoric in ways similar to Turkish officials as a result of the normative ambiguity of states recognising the Armenian Genocide. In explaining why Sweden consistently resisted Genocide recognition efforts, this analysis focuses on its larger foreign policy commitments of spreading democracy in Turkey and managing the Syrian refugee crisis.

    Abstract [en]

    Transitional justice scholarship has importantly analyzed how European groups use Holocaust-related legislation to create a unified political culture. While this research has made many valuable contributions, it does not include various other external actors, who also influence European political culture through transitional justice measures related to the Holocaust. This analysis expands the existing research about transitional justice and Holocaust restitution by analyzing the influential role U.S. intermediation played in Latvia’s 2022 Holocaust restitution law. The findings of this research do not contradict the existing scholarship; rather, they broaden it by unpacking how the U.S. influences European political culture through Holocaust restitution legislation.

    Social capital and polarization: The case of Polish think tanks2023Ingår i: Journal of Civil Society, ISSN 1744-8689, E-ISSN 1744-8697, Vol. 19, nr 4, s. 347-365Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, we study polarization within civil society. While earlier research on civil society has shown that civil society organizations can be divisive, research on polarization has only paid scant attention to the role of civil society. We bring these two aspects of the literature together to develop a framework for analyzing social capital in a polarized context. The framework helps identify practices that organizations may engage in when shaping social capital and working with others: facilitating the flow of information; providing credentials for actors; influencing agents; and reinforcing identity and recognition. Importantly, while originally developed for a fundamentally positive analysis of the mechanics of social capital, this framework includes inverted practices. In our analysis, we observe a bifurcation of actions depending on what role they play in the polarization dynamic - integrating relations within the poles or separating relations between the poles. In this sense, social capital contributes to intensified polarization. Empirically, the article is based on a dataset of 30 interviews with 24 policy-oriented civil society organizations (CSOs), here termed think tanks, in Poland.

    Det här specialnumret, den fjärde volymen i serien Det vita fältet somsamlar svensk och internationell forskning om högerextremism, utgår ifrån den berömdaboken The Authoritarian Personality från 1950 av Theodor W. Adorno, Else Frenkel-Brunswik, Daniel J. Levinson och R. Nevitt Sanford. I en tid när högerpopulism ochhögerextremism åter växer sig starka på båda sidor av Atlanten har den bokens huvudfrågaom vad som gör människor mottagliga för fascistisk propaganda fått en ny ochskrämmande aktualitet. Numret innehåller förutom översatta kapitel av Adorno ochFrenkel-Brunswik också flera omfattande kommenterande artiklar av Anders Ramsay,Mats Deland, Paul Fuehrer och Erik Hansson om bakgrunds- och tillkomsthistorien förboken tillsammans med analyser av vad den verkligen försöker säga oss samt dess inflytandepå senare forskning.

    Paul Lazarsfeld, Theodor W. Adorno och den kritiska teorins umgänge med positivistisk socialpsykologi, 1938–20222023Ingår i: ARKIV. Tidskrift för samhällsanalys, ISSN 2000-6225, E-ISSN 2000-6217, nr 16, s. 223-262Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [sv]

    Ganska snart efter att The Authoritarian Personality publicerades 1950 blandades positiva recensioner med rasande angrepp, inte minst kopplade till kalla krigets antikommunistiska stämningar i USA. En del av kritiken handlade emellertid också om viktiga och komplexa metodologiska spörsmål. På lång sikt visade det sig att den sammansatta metod, med attitydundersökningar, intervjuer och psykologiska tester, som användes i The Authoritarian Personality inte fick många efterföljare, medan bokens så kallade F-skala kom att användas i ett mycket stort antal studier i olika ämnen så att den fortfarande, i utvecklade former, i högsta grad är ett levande verktyg. Mats Delands och Paul Fuehrers artikel följer den metodologiska utvecklingen med utgångspunkt i ettmöte mellan Paul Lazarsfeld och Theodor W. Adorno i slutet av 1930-talet, när de teoretiska meningsskiljaktigheterna mellan den positivism och kritiska teori som tillsammans låg till grund för The Authoritarian Personality först gjordes tydliga, fram till 2000-taletsmoderna attitydundersökningar i Leipzig och Bielefeld.

    Extracurricular activities and educational ouctomes: evidence from high-performing schools in St Petersburg, Russia2023Ingår i: International Studies in Sociology of Education, ISSN 0962-0214, E-ISSN 1747-5066, Vol. 32, nr 4, s. 1106-1125Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is based on a survey carried out among 2,428 ninth-graders from 64 high-performing schools in St. Petersburg, Russia. In the study, we examine the relationships between socioeconomic background, extracurricular participation, and educational outcomes. The findings demonstrate high levels of participation in out-of-school, compared to school-based, extracurricular activities. Extracurricular participation was also shown to be associated with better grades and, to some extent, with higher levels of university aspirations. The relatively small estimate sizes indicate, however, that extracurricular participation is not a major factor in differences in educational outcomes. Nevertheless, since participation was higher among socioeconomically more advantaged students, and grades and/or levels of university aspirations were higher among those who participated, we argue that extracurricular participation should be understood as part of social reproduction in Russia.

    Ethnopolitical Entrepreneurs: Outsiders Inside Armenian Los Angeles2023Bok (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Ethnopolitical Entrepreneurs presents the story of the Armenians of Glendale, California. Coming from Argentina, Armenia, Egypt, Iran, Jordan, Lebanon, Russia, Syria, and many other countries, this group is internally fragmented and often has limited experience with the American political system. Nonetheless, Glendale's Armenians have rapidly mobilized and remade an American suburban space in their own likeness.

    In telling their story, Daniel Fittante expands our understanding of US political history. From the late nineteenth-century onward, Irish, Italian, Jewish, and several other immigrant populations in large American cities began changing the country's political reality. The author shows how Glendale's Armenians—as well as many other immigrants—are now changing the country's political reality within its dynamic, multiethnic suburbs. The processes look different in various suburban contexts, but the underlying narrative holds: immigrant populations converge on suburban areas and ambitious political actors develop careers by driving coethnics' political incorporation.

    Ambiguous Encounters: Young Women’s Expectations and Experiences with Intoxicated Sexual Relations in Danish Nightlife2023Ingår i: Young - Nordic Journal of Youth Research, ISSN 1103-3088, E-ISSN 1741-3222, Vol. 31, nr 5, s. 175-183Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is based on 28 in-depth interviews with young women (18–25) about their experiences with intoxicated sexual encounters in Danish nightlife. Little research has examined the role intoxication plays in the processes of consensual and non-consensual sex. Using theories of intoxication and sexual scripts, this article focuses on how alcohol is used and perceived by these young women as a potential way of modifying behaviours and norms in their sexual encounters; how they characterize sexual consent and how they navigate intoxicated behaviour that can result in inappropriate, transgressive or victimizing situations. While the women talk about pleasurable and regrettable experiences, many described situations took on a much more ambiguous, fluid and nuanced role. The study points to the lack of knowledge on how ambiguity may play an active role in managing processes of sexual consent in intoxicated settings, especially for the youngest age groups.

    Sex Work Policy in Poland and Its Impact on the Lived Experience of Sex Workers2023Ingår i: Politička Misao, ISSN 0032-3241, E-ISSN 1846-8721, Vol. 60, nr 4, s. 35-60Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the model of sex work regulation in Poland. Officially being an abolitionist one, it criminalises directly third parties, while in practice the whole working environment is criminalised, pushing sex workers into shadow economy and precarious working conditions, and exposing them to heightened risks of violence. At the same time, the Polish state does not provide any support programmes for sex workers. As such, it misrecognises sex workers, who are not seen as workers or victims. This article looks at the prostitution policy from the perspective of sex workers' rights. It also shows how complicated sex work policy is, since the law includes contradictory rules and values, which all have a negative impact on sex workers' lives, and how these contradictory rules contribute to misrecognition of sex workers, as workers, subjects of rights and citizens, and to their stigmatisation.

    Religion and the Protest Movement2023Ingår i: Communist and post-communist studies, ISSN 0967-067X, E-ISSN 1873-6920, Vol. 56, nr 3, s. 22-46Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyzes the position of the Christian churches on the protests in Belarus in 2020. This study contributes to the research on the state-society relationship in autocratic regimes by nuancing the thesis that civil society is either marginalized or fully co-opted by the authoritarian state. The protest wave showed that the initiatives of religious groups fostered collective action in a state system that is punitive of any dissent. The article identifies churches as an ambivalent space: one where the state can exercise social control, but where potential resistance to the repressive state might also occur since they enjoy a greater degree of freedom than other organizations in authoritarian Belarus. Moreover, our study argues that religion can be seen as a privileged arena of protest within existing legal frameworks of the “contract” between the state and the church. By looking at the societal engagement of different religious confessions campaigning for their rights and promoting their visions of desirable political development on the grassroots level, this article addresses a range of opportunities to engage in civic activism in Belarus.
