    Ritualer i koncentrationslägret: Avståndstagande, moral och anpassning i före detta lägerfångars berättelser från Bosnien2013In: Statsvetenskaplig Tidskrift, ISSN 0039-0747, Vol. 115, no 3, p. 225-243Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article portrayed experiences of former inmates that were placed in the concentration camps in the beginning of the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the 1900s are being analyzed. The article is based on 13 interviews with former inmates and close relatives that currently live in Sweden, Denmark and Norway. The purpose with the article is to describe the social interaction rituals that are being retold after a stay in concentration camps and also to identify how these interactions get dramatized symbolically. In addition, the moral that emerges in the description is analyzed. All the interviewed in the study describe themselves as victims. Throughout the narratives about crimes and encroachment in the camps the interviewed individual’s take distance from the actions of the guards and the category concentration camp- placed. Retelling violations and resistance rituals show that the space for individuality in the camps were toughly limited but a resistance and status rituals together with adaptation to the living conditions in the camps seems to have generated a space for enhanced individualization. To possess somewhat control and have the opportunity to provide resistance seems to give an emotion of honor and self-esteem to the camp prisoners, not only during but also after the time of war.

    Egoism, group loyalty and corruption in Swedish local politics: Lessons from game theory and experimental social science

    Recent advances in game theory and experimental social science provide insights for the study of corruption and abuse of power in local politics. We survey the evidence from theoretical and experimental research and illustrate findings and problems with two examples from a survey among local politicians and officials in Sweden. The most simplified theoretical models, such as the prisoner’s dilemma, fail to capture the distinction between group loyal behavior at different levels. There are several grey zones between pro-social behavior and corruption. These grey zones can be considered corruption danger zones. While Sweden is typically seen as a non-corrupt society, there are several situations where local politicians and officials must make choices in these corruption danger zones. Both formal institutions and informal norms influence these choices, and the views among politicians can vary substantially regarding what behavior is considered acceptable. Communication, openness and public debate can help the fight against corruption.

    Svenska kristdemokrater i förändring: Från konfessionellt universella till sekulärt partikulära2010In: Statsvetenskaplig Tidskrift, ISSN 0039-0747, Vol. 112, no 2, p. 165-176Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, ideological tranformations within the Swedish Christian Democratic party throughout the past years is analysed. This is done in comparison with previous research on the ideological character of the party from the 1960’s to the early 2000’s. The party´s ideology is analysed with a two dimensional model, i.e. universalism – par- ticularism and confessionalism – secularism. These two dimensions are derived from the ideological debate within the Dutch CDA during the 1990’s, a party that has op- erated in a similar context as the Swedish Christian Democrats have. Based on the two dimensions speeches and op-ed articles by the party leadership is analysed. The con- clusion is that the Swedish Christian Democrats has moved from a position of a strong Christian inspiration to a more secular direction, and that the party also has moved from strong universal beliefs to less universal and more particularistic beliefs

    Representation och kartellisering2014In: Statsvetenskaplig Tidskrift, ISSN 0039-0747, Vol. 116, no 1, p. 149-158Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the relationship between political representation and cartelization. Proponents of the cartel party theory argue as if cartelization and political representation were opposites: insofar as political parties empirically approximate the cartel party type, they will also, so the argument goes, distance themselves from normatively entrenched ideas and ideals about representation. The article questions and critiques this view. Drawing on Hanna Pitkin’s view of political representation as acting in the interests of the represented in a responsive manner, I discuss the difficulties in teasing out what it means to represent and be represented according to the cartel party theory. The article concludes that the proponents of the cartel party theory have not provided any convincing reasons for assuming that representation and cartelization are necessarily opposites, but also that our entrenched understanding of political representation offers little guidance as to the nature of this relationship.

    Abstract [en]

    This study examines whether the development and distribution of public subsidies for Swedish parties from the 1970s and onward tend to support some of Richard S. Katz and Peter Mair assumptions about political parties. The results show that governmental party subsidies can have a negative impact on party membership recruitment, that an increasing proportion of party subsidies is given to the parliamentary groups while less goes to the member’s party organization on the national level, and that the extensive party subsidies from municipalities, counties and parliament may allow an independent development of parties at the municipal, county, and state level.

    Abstract [en]

    Changing Conditions for Party Groups of the Swedish RiksdagIn this special issue of Statsvetenskaplig tidskrift, the intention is to study the cartelizationof the Swedish party system based on the party groups of the SwedishRiksdag. Especially if we investigate whether the parliamentary party groups havebecome increasingly similar from the late 20th century to the first decade of the 21th century. This purpose is treated in six distinct sub-studies designed to addressgaps in the theory of cartelization of political parties. Conditions for party changeare related to party finance, gender and medialization. The significance of theseconditions may be different, however, depending on the internal cultures of parliamentaryparty groups: some party cultures may impede while other may facilitatecartelization. Party change is analyzed through a study of the parties’ degree ofpoliticization along with a discussion of cartelization and political representation.

    Abstract [en]

    In this special issue of Statsvetenskaplig tidskrift, six articles have, based on hypotheses about cartelization, studied changes in the party groups of the Swedish Riksdag: Are parliamentary party groups becoming increasingly similar from the late 1980s to the early 2010s? When this concluding article summarizes the results from each of the six studies, the simplified answer is no. The relationship between cause and effect, stipulated by the cartel theory, did not occur in our study. Still, public party finance and, to some extent, medialization paved the way for cartelization, and the internal party culture, in this investigation, changed so it could facilitate cartelization. Nevertheless, the increased degree of politicization, did not support the theory of the cartel party, nor did important gender cleavages.

    Religiositet och miljöopinion i Sverige och USA2008In: Statsvetenskaplig Tidskrift, ISSN 0039-0747, Vol. 110, no 3, p. 249-274Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Religiosity and Environmental Opinion in Sweden and the U.S. The article presents a study of religious effects on the environmental opinion among individuals in Sweden and the U.S. in 2000. It is a most different system design, since the comparison is between a

    highly secular (Sweden) and a highly religious population (the U.S.). The study uses data representing the adult population in Sweden and the U.S. In Sweden, religious people tend to be more positive than secular people to policies of environment protection. In the U.S., Republicans who belong to Evangelical Churches and people with a literal understanding of the Bible tend to be rather negative to suggestions on environmental care, while others who claim to be “born again” are rather positive towards suggestions on environmental caring procedures.

    Och aldrig mötas de tu : Kulturdebatt och kulturpolitik i den svenska kanondebatten 2006: [ And never the twain shall meet : Cultural debate and cultural politics in the 2006 Swedish literary canon debate ]2012In: Statsvetenskaplig Tidskrift, ISSN 0039-0747, Vol. 114, no 3, p. 431-452Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article focuses on the Swedish literary canon debate preceding the Swedish government elections in September 2006. The debate was instigated by an article written by liberal politician Cecilia Wikström, in which she suggested reinstating an official Swedish literary canon. Wikström’s article sparked an inflamed debate that took place in all major Swedish newspapers, stretching over a period of more than two months in the summer of 2006. Due to the article and the debate that followed, questions concerning culture and cultural politics were more prominently featured in the 2006 election campaign than in previous campaigns. In addition to analysing the different positions of the debate, this article also suggests that Wikströms’s article is an expression of an on-going process in Swedish politics towards a more openly instrumental view on (national) culture and cultural expressions.

    Bakom lyckta dörrar: Beslutsprocessen bakom den svenska pensionsreformen2009In: Statsvetenskaplig Tidskrift, ISSN 0039-0747, Vol. 111, no 3, p. 239-264Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    The reform of the Swedish pension scheme (ATP) illustrates a surprising ability among Swedish politicians to sidestep entrenched partisan conflicts and establish consensus. Although several studies set out to explain the comparatively successful reform, the significance of new, and exclusive, institutions for decision-making has largely been overlooked. The hypothesis of this article, however, suggests that the creation of these new institutions is what really explains the Swedish success story. In order to test the hypothesis, decisions and negotiations leading up to the reform are process-traced, and opinions among voters and central actors that were excluded from the process are explored. The results indicate that the pension reform was made possible by the highly restricted decision-making process, and also cast doubts on whether the same pension reform would have been possible without it. These new institutions for decision-making, however, might have negative consequences for the future functions of representative democracy.

    Europeisering och kartellisering av nationella partisystem?: Förändrade konfliktlinjer mellan partierna i riksdagens EU-nämnd mellan 1995 och 20122014In: Statsvetenskaplig Tidskrift, ISSN 0039-0747, Vol. 116, no 1, p. 123-147Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Several scholars argue that Europeanization, by transferring political authority to non-partisan supra-national institutions, leads to depoliticization, and even party system cartelization, at the national level. Other scholars, however, maintain that European integration instead is likely to boost partisan conflicts over time. This article tests these rival hypotheses – depoliticization or politicization – using a case study of Swedish European Affairs Committee between 1995 and 2012. If Europeanization results in depoliticization and a waning of opposition, the article argues that the Swedish experiences are likely to confirm this tendency. Yet, in contrast to these expectations, the article presents evidence indicating that partisan struggles on Europeanization in Sweden – particularly on issues of relevance to the left-right divide – has intensified significantly over time. Therefore, the article  casts a shadow of doubt over the hypothesis of depoliticization, as well as over the influential cartel party thesis, while instead supporting the rival hypothesis of increased politicization.

    Abstract [en]

    The Sweden Democrats: Single-Issue Focus and Electoral Success. In the 2014 election, the Sweden Democrats (SD) established itself as the third big- gest party in Sweden. With the aim of explaining this unexpected electoral breakthrough, I argue that stigmatised parties like the SD ultimately shape their own fates by choosing how to exploit political opportunities that face them in different arenas. Drawing on a variety of data sources, I support this argument by presenting evidence indicating that the vast mobilisation SD-voters in 2014 largely is a prod- uct of strategies by the SD-leadership to exploit a perceived political vacuum in the wake of convergence between mainstream parties. The article suggests, moreover, that the very high degree of stigmatisation surrounding the SD, in fact, has facilitated internal strategies to normalise the ideological appeal of the party. In light of these findings, the article concludes by arguing that the current actions of Swedish mainstream parties are bound to further strengthen the SD.

    Ceaușescu och litteraturen: Mellan antisovjetism och personkult2012In: Statsvetenskaplig Tidskrift, ISSN 0039-0747, Vol. 114, no 3, p. 385-399Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The goal of this article is to examine what role literature played for Nicolae Ceaușescu, Romania's political leader between 1965 and 1989. I focus on the period between 1968 and 1974, when the basis was laid for a cultural policy which was to be applied until the end of Ceaușescu's reign in 1989. Such studies are easier to conduct today, when the archives of the Romanian Communist Party have been opened, and the protocols of Ceaușescu's meetings with Romanian writers after his so called "Little Cultural Revolution" in 1971 have been published. What is especially salient is that Ceaușescu saw literature, especially formalistically experimental literature, as a potential danger for his project of ideological repression of Romanian citizens. He also used literature and art in general in his struggle for independence from the Soviet Union and emancipation of Romanian identity. The results of Ceaușescu's ideological turn in cultural policy were not at all positive for Romanian literature

    Abstract [sv]

    The liberal state, it has been argued, must be neutral between different conceptions of the good. Honouring individual autonomy and embodying ideals such as fairness and impartiality, the doctrine of state neutrality is intuitively appealing. Working as a restraint for state actions it is however problematic. In this paper, a possible solution to this predicament is outlined. Drawing on the distinction between liberty and what gives worth to liberty, it is argued that we must never accept non-neutral restrictions of liberty itself, but may pursue non-neutral policies affecting the distribution of what gives worth to liberty and may impose taxes funding non-neutral state actions, although such taxation inevitable limits the worth of our liberty. It is suggested that we, by adopting such a policy of limited state perfectionism, can recognize the right to individual autonomy without having to restrain the state from doing the good it can.

    Abstract [en]

    In the political rhetoric of the West democracy is a prominent goal in development policies. However many of the countries receiving most development aid are far from democratic. We ask here why it is the case that the West time and again supports and underpins autocratic leaders and regimes in the developing world. One hypothesis is that there is a strong mechanism of wishful thinking at work. Western leaders seem to look for what they judge to be “enlightened” leaders in third world countries, perhaps having the “enlightened despots” of their own history in mind, having produced, if not democracy, at least order and development. The focus in the mainstream development discourse – such as the Millennium Goals – on “output” as a measure of development, with no mention of gains in democracy and human rights, is another possible explanation. Examining views expressed by Western leaders and academics on two autocratic leaders, Paul Kagame of Rwanda and the late Meles Zenawi of Ethiopia, it is shown that they indeed are projected as “enlightened”, and that their democratic deficit is mostly excused, when they are perceived to deliver on other developmental goals.
