Abstract [en]

This is study about religion, xenophobic opinion, and support for Radical Right Populist Parties during their phase of initial mobilization in Sweden. It deals with two issues of investigation. First, are the opinions of regular church attenders xenophobic or non-xenophobic? Second, are the opinions of people who live in municipalities with a relatively high proportion of churchgoers more or less xenophobic? The main data of this study are the Swedish National Election Study of 2002, but the article also presents data on the characteristics of the Swedish municipalities. The findings show that church attendance is associated with non-xenophobic opinions such as support for refugee entries and for transforming Sweden into a multi-cultural society. While regular attendance in the Church of Sweden does not show any correlation with xenophobia, people attending Evangelical free churches show strong non-xenophobic opinions. Indeed, people living in municipalities with a marked presence of Evangelical free churchgoers show more non-xenophobic opinions than individuals in other municipalities. Along with individual effects, this indicates contextual religious effects on xenophobic opinion. Both individual and contextual religious effects tend to decrease xenophobic opinion.

Abstract [en]

The main argument of this paper is that religious change caused by modifying supply in the religious market takes time due to intergenerational value change. Unlike previous research, this study suggests that not only do religious agents on the supply side need time to adjust, but that the time lag is probably even greater among individuals on the demand side of the religious market. Using time series data, the study demonstrates that, despite shrinking church attendance, interest in religious concepts such as “salvation” has increased in the generations born after 1970 in Sweden. Describing the transformation of the Swedish religious market from a regulated religious monopoly before 1970 to an increasingly deregulated and competitive religious supply since 1970, the study explains this revival in religious interest on the part of generations whose formative years were after 1970. As these generations replace previous generation with less religious interest, religious interest is rising in the Swedish population. The conclusion holds even when controlling for period and life-cycle effects, as well as alternative explanations of religious change such as increased migration and the existential security thesis.

2016 (Swedish)Book (Other academic)
Abstract [sv]

Enkäten är sedan länge ett väletablerat redskap för både forskare och praktiker. De flesta vuxna får ofta fylla i formulär av olika slag, i de mest skiftande sammanhang. Hur utformar man då en enkät? Ett bra enkätformulär ska vara tydligt, överskådligt och enkelt att fylla i, och det får inte ta för mycket tid i anspråk. Dessutom ska enkäten ge undersökaren tillförlitlig och bearbetningsbar information tillbaka.

Den här boken är en introduktion till konsten att göra enkäter, oavsett om dessa ska tryckas på papper eller distribueras digitalt. Den beskriver hur allmänna frågor kan preciseras och omvandlas till fungerande enkätfrågor och svarsalternativ. Författarna ger råd om i vilken ordning frågor bör ställas, hur formuläret kan utformas grafiskt och hur datainsamlingen lämpligen läggs upp. Allt för att undvika missuppfattningar, minimera fel och för att få många ifyllda formulär tillbaka.

De praktiska råden inramas av en skildring av enkätens pionjärer i Sverige och en diskussion om enkätens framtid i ett alltmer digitaliserat samhälle.

Abstract [en]

It is argued that although the importance of party identification and social cleavages is declining, the bipolarity of the Swedish party system is sustained by voters' identification with political blocs rather than with parties. Using data from the Swedish election of 2010, the article shows that voters' bloc identification structures their voting behaviour and stabilises the party system. Four hypotheses are tested and supported. H1: Declining party identification has been replaced by bloc identification. H2: Voters with a strong bloc identification are often detached from a strong party identification, while almost all of the few voters with a strong party identification are also attached to a strong bloc identification. H3: Bloc identification has an effect on voting for parties belonging to one of the political blocs, even when party identification is controlled for. H4: Bloc identification has a small effect on electoral support for anti-establishment parties (such as the Sweden Democrats).

2015 (Swedish)Book (Other academic)
Abstract [sv]

I en representativ demokrati är allmänna val viktiga. Därför är väljarbeteende ett centralt statsvetenskapligt forskningsområde. I den här boken presenteras en väljarstudie som ger en grundläggande introduktion till forskning om politiskt beteende. Den svenska väljaren 2014 analyserar hur och varför väljarna röstade som de gjorde i riksdagsvalet 2014. Analyserna visar på omfattande och betydande förändringar i svensk politik. I boken framträder bilden av ett nytt politiskt landskap i Sverige.

Författaren relaterar också studiens resultat till den internationella forskningsfronten och läsaren får därmed en inblick i såväl nya som klassiska teorier om politiskt beteende. Med hjälp av enkel statistik får läsarna kunskap om medborgarnas agerande i allmänna val. Boken är främst avsedd för studerande vi universitetens och högskolornas introducerande kurser i statsvetenskap.
