    "Pojke eller flicka, alla ungdomar vill bli sedda" : En kvalitativ studie om nyexaminerade socionomers reflektioner kring att genus görs inom HVB och hur de agerar i behandlingsarbetet med ungdomarna.2022Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Socialstyrelsen (2021) reports that 8300 children and young people in Sweden were placed on a so called HVB during 2020. HVB stands for hem för vård eller boende which in english terms is equal to a home for care or housing. HVB was during 2020 the second most common form of placement for children and adolescents. Socialstyrelsen (2018) reports that social workers working within HVB are responsible for meeting young people's care needs in the form of various treatments. Research done by Mattson (2010) suggests that HVB is a closed environment, which can result in social workers that are active in these care homes become identification objects for the young people who are placed in these care homes. 

     Treatment staff in HVB homes work with adolescents who are in need of support and help. Social workers are expected to work gender-consciously to meet the individual needs of adolescents. Previous research shows that HVB is a complex environment that requires flexibility on the part of treatment staff and that interventions do not always lead to the best results. Newly graduated social workers are expected to possess knowledge as critical awareness of how gender affects treatment work.

    We have chosen to investigate how newly graduated social workers who are active in HVB homes reflect about the fact that gender is done in treatment work and how they act with adolescents as gender awareness is part of the newly graduated social workers' education. The results of the study showed that the reflections of newly graduated social workers confirm previous research's explanation that gender is made in the treatment work with adolescents and which in turn affects how the staff's treatment work is designed. The result highlights that norms, stereotypes and gender perceptions that society produces affect the treatment work despite the social workers' gender awareness through education. Through the study, we also see the desire to counteract these gender notions and its ability to influence treatment work but that it is difficult.

    Soccer for immigrant girls - a means for integration?2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This work is a study of a project related to soccer for girls at Araby, a segregated district in Växjö. Girls can come there and play soccer under conditions acceptable for all, i. e. doors closed, no spectators and no men are allowed access. The initiative has been ongoing for a decade. Semi structured interviews of some 20 participating girls plus a few parents and brothers, show a high appreciation by the girls. The two most pronounced positive factors were the opportunity to get additional friends and a faster development of the girls’ knowledge of the Swedish language. The mothers were positive as well, n. b. sometimes after carefully investigation of the venue. It is worth noticing that mothers appear to have been decision makers within the families. The interviewed fathers were likewise in general positive. Among the brothers there were acceptance of their sisters playing soccer, respecting the decision made by the mother. It appears that the strongest resistance to the girl’s participation was indeed among boys/young men. The well-being and self-esteem of the girls appear to have been strengthen very positively by their participation. The theoretical framework is based on the concepts of acculturation and integration as outlined by Berry.

    Ungdomar på SiS-institution: -Personalens uppfattning om och upplevelser av aggressivt beteende2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna studie var att få en inblick och förståelse för personalens uppfattningar om och upplevelser av ungdomars aggressiva beteenden som befinner sig på en SiS-institution. Dessutom har personalens bemötande gentemot dessa ungdomar belysts från svaren och resultaten av frågeställningarna. En kvalitativ forskningsmetod med utgångspunkt från hermeneutiken användes för att utföra studien tillsammans med semistrukturerade intervjuer med ett antal respondenter från en SiS-institution. von Wrights (2000) relationella och punktuella perspektiv användes som teoretisk utgångspunkt till studien. Resultatet redovisar att respondenterna uppfattade, upplevde och erfarar att ungdomarna som placeras vid institutionen minst någon gång under vistelsen uppvisar ett aggressivt beteende. Det kan även ses i resultatet att personalen upplever att dessa ungdomar i de flesta fall har många av de faktorer som orsakar ett aggressivt beteende med sig till institutionen från deras bakgrund och familjesituation.

    Toward Gender Equality: Women and the Media in Vietnam2018Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    The Gender-in-Media Landscape Study (Vietnam) aims to inform the activities of the Southeast Asia Media Training Network by exploring gender equity in the media workplace. Towards this end, data was gathered through a broad survey and multiple focus group discussions.The survey found:

    More women worked in the media than men, including in recent years increasing numbers in management positions. Balancing work demands with family pressures – which by far fall dispro- portionately upon women – was a significant challenge to many careers.Women and men worked across a wide range of roles and beats within the industry, with the main exception being relative dominance of male journalists in sport and science and technology reporting.

    Media institutions followed legally-mandated leave requirements, including maternity leave. However, any further policies and operations in support of gender equity – such as some flexibili- ty in hours, or carer’s leave – were inconsistent, and generally ad-hoc or dependent on personal arrangements where they exist. They often don’t adequately meet staffing needs.

    The great majority of respondents received at least some training in the past two years which was valued; the main complaint was the limited number of training sessions. Men had greater general access, although majorities of both genders received training.

    Toward Gender Equity: Women and Media in Cambodia2018Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    This report aims to provide Fojo and its project partners with data and perspectives on gender in the media workplace, which can help ensure gender is integrated throughout project activities. in Cambodia project partners are the Cambodian Centre for Independent Media (CCIM) and the Cambodia Communications Institute (CCI). 

    The report includes a brief overview of Cambodia’s current political situation, national-level gender issues, and media industry, including the industry’s scale and levels of media freedom. This provides context to interpret the findings on gender dynamics within the media sector itself.

    As described under ‘Methodology’ below, the data are both qualitative and quantitative, combining focus group discussions and an extended survey. The researchers hope the data can meet the goal of informing and supporting curriculum design and delivery, whether in ‘technical’ skills or in broader gender awareness and policy; and in supporting the gender policies of both partners and Fojo.

    Environmentally Displaced Persons: A Game Theoretic View2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The subject of environmentally displaced persons (EDPs) has not received much attention yet. However, the amount of EDPs will increase significantly in the future as a consequence of climate change. This increase could be prevented if developed countries would take adaptation measures, however at the moment they do not take any action.

     

    This desk study looks at the current situation of no action through the Basic Explanatory Framework developed by Scharpf. This framework uses game theory and provides an explanation for the lack of action concerning EDPs, namely the free-rider effect and the prediction that there will be no action. Furthermore, this thesis contains a comparison of the case of EDPs with the case of climate change and the Kyoto Protocol. Both cases show many similarities but there has been action concerning climate change namely the Kyoto Protocol.

     

    The comparison enforces the prediction that has been made concerning EDPs. Both in the climate change case and the EDPs case, countries will act as free-riders. The Kyoto Protocol has only symbolic value and thus, developed countries have also free-rid in the case of climate change. Furthermore, eight policy options are provided in this thesis that could increase the incentives for developed countries to take action concerning EDPs: increase incentives, issue linkages, transfers, increase willingness to pay among voters, consensus treaty, coalitions, setting deadlines and supranational organisations.

    Inte den typ som gifter sig?: Feministiska samtal om äktenskapsmotstånd2008Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Den här avhandlingen undersöker frågan om äktenskapsmotstånd i dagens svenska samhälle, media och kultur. Boken belyser olika sätt att uttrycka äktenskapsmotstånd och vad det betyder att formulera feministisk kritik av normerande familjevärderingar.

    Undersökningen baseras på etnografi och kritisk kulturanalys och granskar synen på äktenskap, relationer och familj som ett kulturellt imaginärt fält. Det empiriska materialet består av intervjuer med kvinnor som inte har velat gifta sig, liksom ett brett material från tv, webbsidor, dagstidningar, skvallerpress och bloggar.

    I avhandlingen genomförs och presenteras en feministisk metodologisk process, grundat i akademiskt kreativt och självreflexivt skrivande. Detta innebär att skrivprocessen, textformatet, liksom minnesarbete, olika intervjutekniker och andra kreativa analytiska praktiker är en del av det metodologiska ramverket.

    De teoretiska perspektiven som ligger till grund för denna studie består av flera feministiska strömningar: radikalfeminism, queerfeminism, liberealfeminism, anarkafeminism och ett socialt rättviseperspektiv. De belyser, på olika sätt, intersektioner mellan äktenskap, genus, sexualitet, nationalitet, klass och makt. En gemensam utgångspunkt är att identitetskategorier, möjligheter att agera liksom vår plats i världen är konstruerade av maktrelationer och normativa föreställningar om genus. Dessa perspektiv tillhandahåller analytiska verktyg för att diskutera och dekonstruera kulturella föreställningar om äktenskap och äktenskapsmotstånd.

    Abstract [sv]

     Artikeln handlar om skvallerpressens representation av celebriteterna Brad Pitt och Angelina Jolie, och hur deras icke-gifta status producerar moralpanik och genusproblem i den populärkulturella heteronormativiteten. Artikeln tar också upp "äktenskapsfrågan" i en svensk kontext och hur frågan om äktenskapsmotstånd glömts bort av feminismen.

    Identifying Child Functioning from an ICF-CY Perspective: Everyday Life Situations Explored in Measures of Participation2011In: Disability and Rehabilitation, ISSN 0963-8288, E-ISSN 1464-5165, Vol. 33, no 13-14, p. 1230-1244Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose. This study was part of a larger work to develop an authentic measure consisting of code sets for self- or proxy-report of child participation. The aim was to identify common everyday life situations of children and youth based on measures of participation.

    Method. The study was descriptive in nature and involved several stages: systematic search of literature to find articles presenting measures for children and youth with disabilities, identifying measures in selected articles, linking items in included measures to the ICF-CY, analysing content in measures presented as performance and participation and identifying aggregations of ICF-CY codes across these measures.

    Results. A large number of measures for children and youth with disabilities were identified but only 12 fulfilled the inclusion criteria. A slight distinction in content and age appropriateness appeared. Measures presented as performance covered all the ICF-CY Activities and Participation chapters, whereas measures presented as participation covered five of nine chapters. Three common everyday life situations emerged from the measures: Moving around, Engagement in play and Recreation and leisure.

    Conclusion. Only a small number of life situations for children and youth emerged from items in selected measures, thus, other sources are needed to identify more everyday life situations.

    Den nya Arenan: Dansband eller Rock 'n Roll för Kalmar som destination?2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Syftet med den här uppsatsen är att studera om den nya Arenan kan komma att vara en bidragande faktor till säsongsförlängning i Kalmar. Eftersom den nya Arenan inte ännu är färdigbyggd, vill vi undersöka beslutsfattares syn på projektet samt hur ett sådant projekt kan komma att påverka Kalmar som destination.

    För att kunna studera verkligheten, utan att styras av redan befintliga teorier, valde vi i vår studie att använda oss av en induktiv ansats. Den större delen av vår datainsamling grundas på kvalitativa intervjuer, vilka vi kompletterade med diverse rapporter och skrivelser på hemsidor.

    Vår slutsats i den här uppsatsen är att den nya Arenan kan bidra till säsongsförlängning om verksamheten maxas. För att detta ska vara möjligt bör samtliga beslutsfattare börja spela i samma lag, klara och tydliga mål med projektet måste sättas upp och fokus bör läggas på hur ett projekt av den här storleken kan gynna hela Kalmar som destination, inte enbart en av de inblandade aktörerna.

    Why does height matter in hiring?2014In: Journal of Behavioral and Experimental Economics, ISSN 2214-8043, E-ISSN 2214-8051, Vol. 52, p. 35-38Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous research shows the existence of a height premium in the workplace with tall individuals receiving more benefits across several domains (e.g., earnings) relative to short people. The current study probes deeper into the height premium by focusing on the specific favorable traits, attributes, and abilities tall individuals are presumed to have, ultimately giving these individuals an advantage in hiring. In an experiment, we made a male job applicant taller or shorter by digitally manipulating photographs, and attached these to job applications that were evaluated by professional recruiters. We find that in the context of hiring a project leader, the height premium consists of increased perceptions of the candidate's general competence, specific job competency (including employability), and physical health, whereas warmth and physical attractiveness seem to matter less. Interestingly, physical height predicted recruiters' hiring intentions even when statistically controlling for competence, warmth, health, and attractiveness.

    Frihet under ansvar eller ansvar under tillsyn?: Om dokumentstyrning av professioner2017Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    De professionellas arbetssätt befinner sig i förändring. Att följa manualer och standarder, att möta en ny typ av redovisningsansvar, extern kvalitetskontroll och krav på dokumentation utmanar på flera sätt den traditionella bilden av professioner. I Frihet under ansvar eller ansvar under tillsyn belyses erfarenheter av dokumentstyrning från tre professioner, revisorer, lärare och socionomer.

    Boken fokuserar vad dokumentstyrningen betyder för professionernas kunskapsbas och normbas samt hur professionernas autonomi förändras när det gäller att bedöma vad som ska göras, vad som är kvalitet i arbetet och när det gäller möjligheten att ta ett professionellt ansvar.

    De professionellas erfarenheter analyseras utifrån en modell – kunskapstriaden – vars aspekter; kännarskap, känslomässigt engagemang och utvärdering av och ansvar för eget arbete tillsammans antas utgöra en motor för utvecklingen, upprätthållandet och vidareutvecklingen av de professionellas kunskaps- och normsystem.

    Boken vänder sig till studerande inom professionsutbildningar företrädesvis på en avancerad nivå och till forskare och andra som har ett övergripande intresse för styrnings- och professionsfrågor. Frihet under ansvar eller ansvar under tillsyn manar också till fortsatt forskning om de professionellas villkor.

    The Academic Profession in Swedish Higher Education: Continuity and Change inthe New Century

    The purpose of this article is to describe the composition and internal stratificationof the university teaching staff at Swedish higher education institutions. We showthat four fault lines shape the higher education field in the 21st century. These are,firstly, the resource hierarchies both between old and new higher education institutionsand between the fields of science, and, secondly, the prestige hierarchybetween research and teaching staff categories and between the senior lecturers’conditions of existence in the center of the system and its periphery. We argue thatit is necessary to analyze how these stratification lines have come into place to understandhow they work and interact with each other, and how they have partially reinforcedeach other, but at the same time have left room for a transformation of theuniversity teachers’ conditions across the university system.

    Kvinnor som bryter upp från en våldsam relation: En analys av fem självbiografier2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 210 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The study describes five autobiographies of women who have been victims of domestic violence, in order to then analyse the processes that enable women to leave a violent husband. The questions I wanted to look in too were: How do the women in the autobiographies describe the process when they free themselves from the man?  What are the difficulties women face in the process of getting out of a violent relationship and how to explain this process?  How experience and process the woman the relationship to the man after she left him? It appears that women are feeling great in the beginning of the relationships.  The men were loving and allure. This changed and the men exerted violence and tried to control and demanded the women's adaptation. Control and customization go hand in hand and are becoming gradually stronger. The process is gradually changing, not on a conscious level, that the destructive, violent relationship becomes normalized. The paper deals with the normalization process, emotional ties, breaking-up processes and exit process. The study is based on the hermeneutists perspective. Narrative analyse is also used in order to decode the autobiographies. For a woman to succeed with the breakup, she must recognize that she must leave the man and make decisions for herself. Insight gives women the strength to move on from the relationship. All the women in the autobiographies describe that they have broken free from the relationship and that they now lead a good life.

    Is institutional support for women’s entrepreneurship feminist?2014In: Gender, Work & Organization: Abstracts 1-376, John Wiley & Sons, 2014, p. 142-142Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Feminism in Sweden as well as in the other Scandinavian countries was largely formulated as state feminism. The women's movement has cooperated with feminists in the state, resulting in societies that count as the most gender equal in the world. The Scandinavian countries are consistently ranked in the top position on international gender equality indices. The state has provided a large publicly financed welfare sector that both employs many women, and makes it possible to combine work and family through family friendly policies. The last decade has seen a politica l change influenced by neoliberal thought, in which politicians hand over welfare state responsibilities to the market, and instead encourage entrepreneurship, not least among women. The Swedish government has since 20 years back programs and policies to promote women's entrepreneurship. The Swedish state has during the same period shrunk the pub lic sector and privatized many operations in services and care, which traditionally employ many women. Instead, women are encouraged to start businesses in former public sectors. Empirica l studies suggest however, that all of the increase of women 's entrepreneurs hip in these sectors is within low-paid, micro service businesses, typically child minding.

    Traditional state feminism has also changed character. Instead of public regulations, market solutions are advocated. In this paper we ask how to theorize this change from a feminist theory perspective; we ask what the implications for feminist action are, and we ask what consequences for women's position in society are. We use research literature and policy texts as our empirical material and conduct a critical literature analysis. We conclude that the entrepreneurship discourse challenges, and possibly weakens state feminism and feminist action as we have known it in the Scandinavian countries, but may also offer new forms of feminist resistance, on market terms.

    Swedish welfare state retrenchment and the call for women’s entrepreneurship to fill the void2015In: The 4th European Conference on Politics and Gender 2015 June 11-13 Uppsala, Sweden, 2015, p. 1-19Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The last two decades have seen major welfare state retrenchment in Sweden. The public sector, which used to be a large and stable employer for women, was downsized. Public schools and public health and care services were privatized. Customer choice models were introduced. The rhetoric connected to privatization stressed the unique opportunities for women formerly employed by the state to start their own businesses in this sector, now open for competition and private initiatives. In this paper we ask what the results were. We discuss the results from a feminist perspective, i.e we ask if privatization and business ownership has improved women’s situation on the labor market, or not. The paper draws together the research findings from our own empirical research (about fifteen different studies) as well as from research done by other Nordic scholars in the field.

    "Om jag inte hänger med så pratar jag med någon annan om annat": En studie av lärare och elevers upplevelse av självbildens betydelse för motivation, lärande och lärmiljö2009Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med vår studie är att undersöka lärare och elever i grundskolans tidigare års upplevelse av självbildens betydelse för motivation, lärande och lärmiljö. Vi har använt oss av intervjuer som undersökningsinstrument samt framställt observationsskisser av olika klassrum. Intervjuerna genomfördes med elever i årskurs 1 och 2 och med klasslärare i årskurs 1 och 2. Klassrumsobservationerna genomfördes i respektive klasslärares hemklassrum. Totalt intervjuade vi fyra klasslärare samt 23 elever. 

    Resultatet visar att de intervjuade lärarna är eniga om att självbilden har stor inverkan på både lärande och motivation. För att hålla motivationen vid liv krävs en positiv självbild. Även tryggheten i gruppen har en betydande roll i skapandet av en positiv självbild. Elever med mindre bra självbild placeras ofta strategiskt långt fram i klassrummet så att läraren ska kunna stödja och uppmuntra dessa elever. Vidare framhåller lärarna att elevernas tro på den egna förmågan krävs för lärande och personlig utveckling. Som lärare har man en oerhört viktig roll i att motivera och engagera eleverna. Lärarna och eleverna uttrycker liknande resonemang om behovet av fler och större utrymmen att tillgå i undervisningen. Lärarna och majoriteten av eleverna har även liknande resonemang kring placering i klassrummet för bästa koncentration, två och två placering anses ge bäst arbetsklimat. Resultatet visar vidare att eleverna överlag trivs bra i sina respektive lärmiljöer och vågar uttrycka sina åsikter. De antyder även att de känner sig sedda och får stöd och hjälp i undervisningen. Koncentration är något som genomsyrar elevernas tankar kring lärande.

    Intervjuade lärare ser självbilden som viktig för motivation och lärande. Trygghet och trivsel i lärmiljön är en grund för positiv lärmiljö enligt både lärare och elever. Även samspelet mellan både elever och lärare har en betydande roll i elevens utveckling och lärande. Samband mellan otrygghet och mindre bra självbild visar sig hos vissa av de intervjuade eleverna. Hos resterande elever visar sig istället samband mellan känsla av trygghet och positiv självbild.

    Barns motorik: I relation till läs- och skrivinlärning2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    År 2003 reviderades Läroplanen för det obligatoriska skolväsendet, förskoleklassen och fritidshemmet Lpo94 (Lpo94) och daglig fysisk aktivitet infördes som en obligatorisk del av skoldagen. Utifrån våra tolkningar av Lpo94 skall daglig fysisk aktivitet genomsyras i alla skolans ämnen för att skapa förutsättningar som stärker barnens förmåga att lära och utvecklas. Vår studie syftar till att undersöka tre olika teoriers syn på hur motorisk färdighet påverkar barnets läs- och skrivinlärning.

    I den teoretiska bakgrunden redogörs för tidigare forskning gällande motorisk aktivitet och dess betydelse för barns läs- och skrivutveckling. Vi har valt att ta del av tre personers olika teorier och hur de förhåller sig till barns motorik i relation till läs- och skrivinlärningen.

    För att besvara vårt syfte har vi genomfört intervjuer med informanterna. Arbetet belyser vilka olikheter det finns i synen på betydelsen av motorisk träning för barns läs- och skrivinlärningen.

    Alla tre ansåg att motoriken i någon form hade betydelse, men i vilken utsträckning där gick informanternas åsikter isär.

    Perceptions of gay, lesbian, and heterosexual domestic violence among undergraduates in Sweden2013In: International Journal of Conflict and Violence, E-ISSN 1864-1385, Vol. 7, no 2, p. 249-260Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    An experimental study of perceptions about gay, lesbian, and heterosexual domestic violence in Sweden. Undergraduate students (N = 1009) read one of eight fictitious scenarios of domestic violence in married couple relationships, where sexual orientation, sex of victim and batterer, and severity of violence were varied. Perceptions of seriousness of the described incident and attitudes toward women, gays and lesbians were measured. Domestic violence was perceived as more serious in cases where: the respondent was a woman, the batterer was a man, the victim was a woman, or the battering was severe. Wife-battering in a heterosexual relationship was considered the most serious case in both the less and more severe battering scenario. Where battering was less severe, domestic violence in gay and lesbian relationships was perceived as more serious than heterosexual husband-battering; this difference disappeared in the severe battering scenario. Negative attitudes toward gays, lesbians, and women were associated with less concern about domestic violence in all types of relationships. The findings suggest that stereotypes about gays, lesbians, and women affect perceptions of domestic violence, but mainly when violence is less severe.

    Sexual orientation and full-time monthly earnings, by public and private sector: Evidence from Swedish register data2013In: Review of Economics of the Household, ISSN 1569-5239, E-ISSN 1573-7152, Vol. 11, no 1, p. 83-108Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we explore annual earnings as well as full-time monthlyearnings differentials resulting from sexual orientation. We observe that gay malesare at an earnings disadvantage compared to male heterosexuals regardless of whichearnings measure we use. This earnings disadvantage is found to be larger when wecompare gay and heterosexual males who are working full-time. In addition, thedisadvantage is larger in the private than in the public sector. Lesbians, however,earn more than heterosexual females. This earnings advantage is considerablysmaller when we study full-time monthly rather than annual earnings but an earningsadvantage for lesbians at the top of the earnings distribution is documentedregardless of which earnings measure we use. In addition, lesbians are doing betterthan female heterosexuals in the public sector. To sum up, the results indicate thatgay males face obstacles on the labor market that hinder them from reaching toplevelpositions and high earnings. The earnings advantage observed for lesbians islikely to stem from the fact that lesbians devote more time to market work thanheterosexual females.

    Perceptions of gay, lesbian, and heterosexual domestic violence among undergraduates in Sweden2012Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents an experimental study of perceptions about gay, lesbian, and heterosexual domestic violence in Sweden. More than 1,000 participants were asked to read one out of eight possible fictitious scenarios of domestic violence in married couple relationships and subsequently respond to a questionnaire. Sexual orientation, victims’ and batterers’ gender, and severity of the violence varied across the different scenarios. The clearest result of this study was that participants perceived domestic violence to be significantly more serious when a man battered his wife than in any other case (i.e., when a woman battered her husband, when a gay man battered his husband, or when a lesbian woman battered her wife). In all types of relationships, participants matched their perceptions of domestic violence to the level of severity of the violence and participants with more negative attitudes toward women perceived domestic violence as less serious. Female participants were more concerned about lesbian domestic violence than male participants. Attitudes toward gays and lesbians mattered little for the perceptions of domestic violence.

    Abstract [en]

    We used an experiment to investigate whether people’s decisions over employment opportunities are affected by the ethnicity and sex of their potential future coworkers. University students (N = 1,406) were asked to state the lowest hourly wage rate at which they would be willing to accept a job on a campus food truck, where they would work alongside the food truck owner. The ethnicity and sex of the food truck owners were randomized across participants. Results showed no signs of coworker prejudice in terms of the probability of being interested in the job and reservation wage.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents the results of a study that examined customer discrimination against fictitious male and female food truck owners with Arabic-sounding names on a Swedish university campus. In a web-based experiment, students (N = 1,406) were asked, in a market survey setting, whether they thought it was a good idea that a food truck was establishing on their campus and of their willingness to pay for a typical food truck meal. Four names-male and female Swedish-sounding names and male and female Arabic-sounding names-were randomly assigned to food trucks. We found no evidence of customer discrimination against food truck owners with Arabic-sounding names. Participants were slightly more positive to a food truck establishment run by a male with an Arabic-sounding name than a male with a Swedish-sounding name.Keywords

    This piece of writing is a joint initiative by the participants in the Gender, Work and Organization writing workshop organized in Helsinki, Finland, in June 2019. This is a particular form of writing differently. We engage in collective writing and embody what it means to write resistance to established academic practices and conventions together. This is a form of emancipatory initiative where we care for each other as writers and as human beings. There are many author voices and we aim to keep the text open and dialogical. As such, this piece of writing is about suppressed thoughts and feelings that our collective picket line allows us to express. In order to maintain the open-ended nature of the text, and perhaps also to retain some 'dirtiness' that is essential to writing, the article has not been language checked throughout by a native speaker of English.

    Is Female Empowerment Hindering Gender Equality?: A Case Study of Uuguja Island of Zanzibar Tanzania2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The work for female empowerment is prominent on the Unguja island of Zanzibar. Governmental support and local and international organizations are investing in women to achieve gender equality. The government of Tanzania has added changes to the law to protect women and prevent gender-based violence, as well as strategic measures to assist the stakeholders of the Zanzibarian society. Simultaneously, the reports of gender-based violence (GBV) are increasing on the islands according to the Zanzibar Female Lawyer Association. The study explores the measures taken by the government to eliminate violence against women with a focus on the role of the man in these structural social and legal changes. The study also shows the challenges that the added laws have faced in practice, and the balance between culture and legal system in a society, when a change is to take place.

    Barriers to women journalists in Rwanda2021Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    THE PATTERNS OF gendered experiences that have led to barriers of entryand progression for respondents of the study in Rwanda, when compared to an earlier study1 conducted by Fojo and AWiM across 17 African countries, further demonstrates how many of these experiences are shared irrespective of the country. In the case of Rwanda, a country that scores highly in the shares of seats in parliament and labour force participation within the global gender equality indices, the results are perhaps more surprising for that reason. The situation in Rwanda when compared with data from the sub-Saharan Africa shows a similarity in barriers faced by women journalists, namely poor salaries, sexual harassment, and gendered roles at the workplace. Therefore, these findings, in some respects, highlight that the existence of written and well-defined gender policies does not result in their successful implementation because Rwanda is still a long way from gender equality.

    The results of this study, on the one hand, speak for themselves; training and education on gender equality would go a long way in successfully addressing many of the experiences shared by participants of the study. On the other hand, socio-cultural tensions surrounding the role of women in society further com- plicates how male colleagues perceive women rights and its importance. These tensions also highlight women’s rights and the ways in which society treat women journalists. Finally, this study outlines the extent to which women journalists in Rwanda themselves recognise gender discrimination and harassment when they experience them, because the data shows that whilst most women can identify when sexual harassment happens to them, there are few women who are unable to identify certain forms of sexual harassment.

    This study, therefore, offers a clear starting point for organisations tasked with motivating and implementing change. It helps to identify the pain points from the perspective of the women journalists they seek to support. The recommendations presented by the study stems from their lived experiences, and it is through the conscious and reflective interrogation of this, that we can truly set the path towards change.

    The Honour/Shame Complex Revisited: Violence against Women in the Migration Context2003In: Women's Studies: International Forum, ISSN 0277-5395, E-ISSN 1879-243X, Vol. 26, no 5, p. 425-442Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is based on the life histories of two immigrant women of Turkish origin living in Sweden. Fictive names are used in the article. The women are given in marriage at a very young age to attach them to men who will take over the function of their control from their fathers. By analyzing the life histories with the help of Delaney and Bourdieu's theoretical approaches, I try to explain the implicit idea in the honour/shame complex whereby protection of women is maintained through control on their sexuality. The control is accelerated to the extent that women live in “immigrant enclaves”. The function of women as carriers and bearers of group identity gains importance in case of the “immigrant situation” where ethnic identity becomes an issue to consider. Women are abused when they violate the boundaries of the definition of acceptable femininity by their ethnic community.

    Abstract [en]

    Gender analysis of the narratives of low-income divorcées in big cities of Ankara, Istanbul and Izmir shows that their lives are under patriarchal domination. Women are subjected to all kinds of violence in their marriage and escape it by getting a divorce. Their lives are vulnerable as the increasing numbers of lone mothers are neither morally nor socially accepted in Turkish society. The patriarchal family ideal exacerbates the situation of lone mothers who become stigmatized as divorcées. Divorce is considered a 'shame' for women, and the ideology of family is used as a poitical tool where persistent conservative bias ignores wife battering, rape and other types of abuse in society.

    ”Det sitter i väggarna”: En kvalitativ studie om brukarinflytande i samband med äldres flytt till särskilt boende. 2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to create an understanding of how unit managers and care workers work with user influence in connection with elderly moving to nursing homes. This study was delimited to analyze two nursing homes in a medium-sized municipality in southern Sweden. The study was based on qualitative semi-structured interviews from two unit managers and six care workers in nursing homes. To analyze the data, Michael Foucault’s theory about power, Pierre Bourdieus's concept of doxa and symbolic power have been used as well as client construction. The result of this study indicates that elderly are given the opportunity to influence through implementation plans, welcome talks, being listened to, relationship-building, feeling homelike, resignation and reluctance, adaption to the conditions that are available and rethinking. The results of the study also shows that elderly were transformed and adapted according to the nursing homes guidelines and routines when moving in. Therefore, there were opinions taken for granted and not questioned within the organizations. With this basis, situations that caused limited influence of the elderly were excused and justified according to the organizations´ implied logic, which was deeply rooted in the workplace structure including the unit managers and care workers.

    Sustainable gender equality within the Swedish healthcare2013In: FALF-konferens - Arbetslivets föränderlighet, 2013, p. 3-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the presentation is to discuss whether or not a methodological approach can promote a process of making visible gender equality within the health and medical care.

    Although Sweden has come a long way in making sure that women and men are treated equally in the workplace there are few countries with so obvious gender based occupational segregation. Within Swedish health- and medical care for example 81 per cent of the employees are women. The majority of these work in a hierarchical structure where the lower and intermediate levels primarily are comprised of women. With this point of departure we have studied the construction of gender equality in every day meetings between women and men working in health- and medical care.

    Aim

    The overarching purpose of the study was to describe and problematize the perspective of gender equality within the health- and medical care. Two main questions were posed:

    • How is the aspect of gender equality expressed in work related meetings between women and men working in health care?
    • Which opportunities and hindrances exist for creating sustainable gender equality within the health- and medical care?

    Method

    The empirical material comprised 23 women and men studying health care or public health at Blekinge Institute of Technology. The informants were also working as professional nurses. The study was carried through in two steps. Firstly four introductory lectures were conducted. Two of them were about qualitative methods with a particular emphasis on focus groups as an interview technique. The other two focused on current gender equality research. The informants also deepened their knowledge by reading articles about gender equality. In the second step qualitative interviews in focus groups were conducted. Before these occasions the interviewees had prepared themselves by reading a research report which made it possible to relate the text to personal experiences from working life.

    Result

    The empirical material showed that the knowledge about gender equality differed within the studied group. Most informants considered the problem area of vital importance and stressed the necessity of continual discussions in the workplace. However some of the interviewed had never thought of the issue as they regarded gender equality being a question without any interest. All our informants were aware of the plan of action for equality which is required at the workplace but only few of them had read it or worked actively with the implementation. When the interviewees reflected upon the hierarchical structure in their workplaces a common view was that an obvious difference between women’s and men’s opportunities to influence and exercise domination could be seen.

    The managerial position in a Swedish municipal organization: possibilities and limitations2018In: Economic and Industrial Democracy, ISSN 0143-831X, E-ISSN 1461-7099, Vol. 39, no 3, p. 500-535Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this article is to explore how a group of managers construct their reality, more specifically what it means to work as a manager in a municipal organization. The empirical data for the study were obtained from a Swedish medium-sized municipality and the study takes as its research approach grounded theory, as developed by Glaser and Strauss. Consequently, the empirical data formed the basis for the research, which takes a multi-methodical and theory-generating approach. The methods used in the study include the use of a questionnaire study, interviews in focus groups, observations, reflective work diaries, and the creation of feedback sessions. The result shows that the managers work in an organization where conflicting and competing value systems act together. These can be interpreted as environmental factors and external bounds on a structural societal level, which cannot be influenced. A point of analysis is that these factors and external bounds to a high degree permeate the manager’s workday and can therefore be seen as a plausible explanation for the boundless nature of the managerial task. For most of the managers of the study, this was expressed as uncertainty as to how to define and interpret goals and as to what the managerial role includes with regard to areas of responsibility. It is interesting to ask, however, whether these conditions are not characteristic of the role of managers and work life in general. The results also show that the substantive theory of the study was not judged to be valid for the municipal companies. These managers do not express as ambivalent an approach to competing value systems as the managers in other sections of the municipality do. Nor do they appear to question their professional knowledge, the work content or managership. Another empirical important finding is that the managers believe that the organizational conditions limit ability to carry out the manager task, but that, despite this, they indicate, paradoxically, that they like their work and the social work environment.

    Inga egoister i samverkan: Regional och lokal samverkan för en hållbar destinationsutveckling2021Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studien behandlar fenomenet besöksnäringsstrategier och hur dessa implementeras från en regional organisation till lokala organisationer inom besöksnäringen. Syftet för studien var att undersöka hur visioner blir till och uppfylls när olika typer av organisationer är inblandade. Genom intervjuer samlades material in för att undersöka hur lokala besöksnäringsorganisationer ser på hur arbetet ska ske inom ett län för att utvecklas tillsammans. Resultatet som presenteras baseras på att kommunikation och delaktighet är bland de viktigaste faktorerna och att organisationerna har områden som de kan samverka runt. Resultatet som presenteras kommer vara användbart för när Region Kalmar ska skapa sin besöksnäringsstrategi under våren 2021.
