    Samhälle, individ och ansvar: en studie om synen på arbetslöshet2016Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the thesis is to highlight and to problematize conceptions of unemployment in Swedish society. The questions guiding my work have been: Which conceptions of unemployment emerge in society? How are these dealt with by the unemployed? Work on the thesis has been guided by a social constructionist approach. The empirical findings are constituted by four publications which, in various ways, are linked to overarching aim of the thesis. These publications consist of an analysis of the legal regulation surrounding the unemployed, a study of the activities of civil society organisations working with unemployed and two publications based on interviews with long-term unemployed young adults.

    The thesis provides increased knowledge of conceptions of unemployment in Swedish society. It shows that there is a widespread societal discourse concerning the individual being responsible for her/his unemployment, and that this conception has historically been well-grounded in Swedish labour market and social policy, as well as in people’s understandings. Among representatives of civil society organisations and unemployed individuals, there is also both a questioning of and a resistance to this understanding, indicating a possible change in the discourse. The thesis further shows that the individualisation of responsibility greatly affects individuals’ approaches in social contexts, as well as in their contacts with government agencies, but also when it comes to relationships with politics and political involvement. These insights are significant, for example during both policy formulation and efforts for the unemployed, bearing in mind that consideration needs to be paid to individual prerequisites in order for the individual’s strengths and abilities to be utilized. This is particulary important when it comes to those in an exposed position.

    Unga långtidsarbetslösa och det individualiserade ansvaret2015In: Arbetsmarknad & Arbetsliv, ISSN 1400-9692, Vol. 21, no 2, p. 58-72Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Arbetslöshet förknippas med individen, hennes bristande arbetsmoral och andra personliga tillkortakommanden. Detta är något arbetslösa måste hantera och förhålla sig till. Artikeln syftar till att belysa på vilket sätt diskursen om det individualiserade ansvaret speglas i unga långtidsarbetslösas berättelser och, i synnerhet, hur de arbetslösa unga vuxna tar ställning till den. Resultaten visar tre förhållningssätt till diskursen: konformitet, distansering och motstånd.

    Young long-term unemployed and the individualization of responsibilities2016In: Nordic Journal of Working Life Studies, ISSN 2245-0157, E-ISSN 2245-0157, Vol. 6, no 2, p. 43-59Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In Sweden, as in most Western societies, a common belief is that unemployment is somehow linked to the individual, her lack of work ethic, or other personal shortcomings rather than to structural causes. This is not only manifested in public arenas such as the media or political debates but also in our social surroundings. In recent years, these views have gained mportance, indicating a shift in the location of responsibilities from the welfare state to the ndividual. This shift entails high demands and expectations on unemployed people and is omething they have to deal with and relate to. One of the most exposed groups is young ong-term unemployed.

    The aim of this article is to highlight how the discourse of individualized responsibility is reflected in unemployed peoples’ stories, and to shed light on the ways in which young long-term unemployed adults relate to and position themselves toward this discourse. Based on 18 qualitative interviews with young Swedish long-term unemployed people, the findings how three approaches to the discourse: conformity, distancing, and resistance.

    Civil society organizations and unemployment in Europe2012Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Studies of unemployment have traditionally focused on the welfare state as a framework. In that context, the third sector has been neglected, despite a considerable contribution to the field of unemployment. This comparative study will take a closer look at the activities offered by organizations working with unemployed, which will serve as a basis for exploring the relationship between civil society and state in four European countries. Associations in one city per country, active on this particular field within the third sector, will serve as case studies with the cases representing their welfare regime. Data comprises quantitative data gathered in corporatist Germany, Southern European Italy, paternalistic-market hybrid Poland and Social democratic Sweden. We argue that the role of the civil society organizations active on this area has changed in regard to the traditional pattern of classical welfare state models. This study shows that, regardless of welfare regime type as described in literature, the activities and strategies of the organizations are similar in all four countries.

    Unemployment, stigma and self-esteem2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The link between the occupational status and the degree of self-esteem has been elucidated by, above all, social sciences research on unemployment and well-being. The main argument has been that the lower degree of self-esteem the unemployed suffer from is a result of the missing latent functions of work, such as a time structure, regular activities and social contacts. However, the experience of unemployment is not limited to the absence of gainful employment. Emanated in particular from the public discussion regarding unemployed people being lazy and unwilling to work the negative connotations have gained importance in most of the European countries. Hence, unemployment marks a social status that is closely connected to the experience of stigmatization.

     

    Using survey data with a large sample of unemployed and employed young people from seven European countries, this paper aims to study to what extent the experience of social stigmatization may explain the interrelation between unemployment and self-esteem. Initially, we will analyse the impact of occupational status on the experience of stigmatization, i.e. the belief in societal prejudice towards the unemployed as well as social and institutional discrimination. In a second step, we will test to what extent the experience of stigmatization may explain the lower degree of self-esteem the unemployed suffer from.

    Between evasion and activism. A qualitative inquiry into the political behaviour of German and Swedish long-term unemployed2015In: PArticipation and COnflict, ISSN 1972-7623, E-ISSN 2035-6609, Vol. 8, no 3, p. 788-813Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This comparative article aims to understand the patterns underlying the political behavior of young German and Swedish long-term unemployed individuals. Based on almost 40 qualitative interviews, the analysis follows a grounded theory approach and shows that “unemployment” is not an objective reality that imposes uniform living conditions. Social and political activities diverge considerably, even though our respondents experience similar pressures and sanctions by public opinion, political parties, public administrations, relatives and/or acquaintances. The consequences of unemployment depend on individual mind-sets, support networks and coping strategies. This study identifies informal networks of social relations as one main factor influencing unemployed young peoples’ political behavior. Three types of political involvement are shaped by the routines and norms reproduced within their web of social relations in everyday life: evasion, civic minimalism and reluctant activism. The similarities between the German and the Swedish respondents overshadowed the national differences.

    Ensam är inte alltid stark: En intervjustudie med fem taktiska officerare om hur de ser på sin möjlighet att prestera inom funktionen teknisk tjänst2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Alone is not always strong – An interview study with five tactical officers on how they see their ability to perform the branch technical services.

    According to the Armed Forces' system descriptions on how to provide personnel, posts that are head of service branches should basically be held by staff with deep professional knowledge and long experience, i.e. Specialist officers. Since 2010 recent graduate tactical officers from the military-technology profile at Swedish Defense University has also been placed on such positions. The purpose of the study was to investigate this category of personnel’s view on their own performance on such a post. The method used was semi-structured interviews with five former students that graduated from the profile in 2010-2013.The theory of a sustainable performance culture, “Will, Know, Can, May and Should,” that Stockholm University has developed, was used as a framework. By using that the author could see if the profile was even. The result says that there are imbalances. They will do the task, they know enough about the task, they can accomplish the task as long as all the positions in technical service at the Company are in place, they may (receive the authority) do the task without clear boundaries and they should (feel a responsibility to) perform the tasks they do not consider is within the responsibility of the specialist officer.

    Intern rörlighet –  en möjlighet eller begränsning för kompetesförsörjning av militär organisation?2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Forskare menar att mänskliga resursers kompetens och duglighet är en viktig egenskap för militär förmåga. Ett sätt att försörja en organisation med kompetens är genom intern personalrörlighet. Intern rörlighet begränsas eller möjliggörs av organisationsrelaterade och/eller individrelaterade faktorer. Hittills finns endast ett fåtal studier om personalstrategier och kompetensförsörjning inom militära organisationer och ingen inom intern personalrörlighet. I denna studie undersöks faktorerna som påverkar intern rörlighet bland officerare i den svenska Försvarsmakten i syfte att se vad som möjliggör eller begränsar kompetensförsörjning av militärmakt. Genom att använda teorier inom både personalrörlighet och mänskligt beteende samt intervjuer som metod har ett antal faktorer kunnat påvisas. Resultatet pekar på att organisationsrelaterade faktorer måste korrelera med individrelaterade faktorer om kompetensförsörjningen ska fungera i en militär organisation. Förutsatt att individens begränsningar omhändertas i personalplanering möjliggörs organisationens behov och byggandet av militär förmåga. Då måste också strategin ha fokus på kompetensförsörjning och inte bara personalförsörjning.
