    Older volunteers in Sweden: a welfare state in transition2014In: Active ageing: voluntary work by older people in Europe / [ed] Andrea Principi, Per H. Jensen & Giovanni Lamura, University of Chicago Press, 2014, 1, p. 197-216Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The main objective of this chapter is to describe the mains features of the Swedish voluntary sector and the enrolment of older people in this sector. Sweden has a large non-profit and volunteer sector. The Swedish experience shows that a large voluntary sector is compatible with a strong and universal welfare state. Since the State is strongly involved in the provision of social services and the financing of a generous and encompassing social protection system, the Swedish volunteer organisations are less active in the fields of social services. By international standard, the participation rate of older volunteers is high and Sweden offers more opportunities than restrictions for older people to be engaged in volunteer activities. In spite of a recent retrenchment of the public sector and an increase of more welfare service oriented associations, the large majority of volunteer organisations are voice organisations and less of a philanthropic nature.

    Shaping the future of work in Sweden: the crucial role of social partnership2018In: Reducing inequalities in Europe: how industrial relations and labour policies can close the gap / [ed] Daniel Vaughan-Whitehead, Edward Elgar Publishing, 2018, 1, p. 519-554Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    One of the basic elements of the Swedish model is a strong contractual tradition and the crucial role played by the social partners in mechanisms for regulating labour market, working conditions and wage formation. The bipartite and contractual nature of labour market regulations coupled with the high union density and high coverage rate of collective bargaining create a favourable institutional environment for the emergence of negotiated compromises aimed at balancing flexibility and security in the labour market. Sweden constitutes, therefore, a good illustration of a flexicurity regime based on negotiated flexibility and largely explains why Sweden remains a country with decent working conditions, low income disparities and extended social justice. A compressed wage structure with relatively high wage floors have also prevented the development of low-skilled jobs in Sweden and instead have boosted policies favouring skill upgrading. In effect, large investment in research and development, a well-developed lifelong learning as well as a more balanced bargaining power between the two sides of industry have limited the tendency towards job and class polarisation in Sweden.

    Abstract [en]

    Despite substantial transformations during the past two decades, the Swedish social model (SSM) still shares many of the distinctive features, principles and core values of the European Social Model (ESM). In fact, we may argue that the SSM illustrates the resilience and long-term viability of the ESM through its continuing attachment to a universal and generous social protection system, egalitarianism, proactive policies for promoting gender equality and fighting against discrimination and social exclusion, social dialogue as a mechanism for regulating the labour market and social policies, and strong public and political involvement in the provision of a wide range of public services in areas such as utilities, education, health and social care.

    The Swedish welfare state in times of crisis: resilience and success2014In: Economia & Lavoro, ISSN 0012-978X, Vol. XLVIII, no 2, p. 9-30Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The main objective of this article is twofold: Firstly, to identify the major transformations of the Swedish Welfare State focusing principally on the structural reforms initiated during the last two decades and their impact on economic development, the distribution of social welfare and on income inequalities. Secondly, to explore the role of the Swedish Welfare State in mitigating the negative impact of the 2008 Great Recession. The early fiscal consolidation measures and the structural reforms undertaken since the second half of the 1990s have without doubt contributed to securing the long-term sustainability of the Swedish social protection system and fostering more healthy public finances.  However, the  “Swedish success story” during the last recession cannot only be reduced to early fiscal consolidation measures and structural reforms. It is clear that the automatic stabilisers embedded in the Swedish Welfare State, the counter-cyclical macroeconomic policy conducted by the Swedish government and a developed social dialogue have all contributed to alleviating the negative impacts of the 2008-crisis on employment, welfare and social exclusion. The Swedish experience illustrates above all the resilience, the long-term viability and the success of a societal model based on an universal and generous social protection system, egalitarianism, pro-active policies for promoting gender equality and fighting against social exclusion, and a strong public and political involvement in the provision of a wide range of services.

    Abstract [en]

    Why write a chapter on working time when Gerhard Bosch and I have been for a long time gently arguing and quarrelling over the overall efficiency of a general reduction of working time and its potential impact on unemployment? Well, because in spite of our minor academic controversy, time has not eroded our friendship, our mutual esteem, or our 20 year-long scientific collaboration.

    Upskilling to avoid jobs’ polarisation and growing income inequalities: the Swedish experience2016In: Economia & Lavoro, ISSN 0012-978X, Vol. 50, no 2, p. 13-24Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Taking a broad historical perspective, this article analyses the development of the Swedish class structure. During the last decades, Sweden experienced a relative decrease in its middle class and a stronger polarisation of its class structure. Three potential factors can explain this development: changes in labour market behaviour, a reduction of the extent of decommodification of the Swedish welfare state and large structural changes in employment and occupational structure. We show that the long-term tendency towards an upgrading of occupational structure in Sweden has benefitted the upper middle class and the top-income group. Indeed, the large investment in research and development, the expansion of education and the increase in the demand of high-skilled jobs have limited the tendency towards job polarisation found in liberal market-orientated welfare states. Weakly linked to the modifications in the skill structure, the decrease of the middle class appears to be better explained by the postponement of entry into the labour market related to the expansion of education and by social protection reforms that negatively affected the disposable income of vulnerable groups.

    Work and care regime and women's employment outcomes: Australia, France and Sweden compared2017In: Making work more equal: a new labour market segmentation approach / [ed] Damina Grimshaw, Colette Fagan, Gail Hebson & Isabel Tavora, Manchester: Manchester University Press, 2017, 1, p. 309-329Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Using a gender perspective and a comparative approach, this paper assesses the extent to which national care regimes and family policies interact and impact upon female employment outcomes. We restrict our analysis to Australia, France and Sweden, three advanced market economies with contrasting employment and care regimes. For the employment regime we focus on paid work across the life course and we focus on parental leave and childcare as indicative of the care regime.  Previous comparative studies have clearly shown that the gender division of labour between paid work, care and domestic activities is strongly dependent on prevailing societal norms and the institutional and societal context, in particular the characteristics of the parental leave systems, the availability and cost of childcare services, the provision of care when older people become partially or fully dependent, and more globally on employment and working time regimes and the design of tax and family policies. Our central argument is therefore that family and care policies play a crucial role in shaping the patterns of men’s and women’s employment. The comparison shows the importance of institutional arrangements and that lack of affordable child care facilities and poor parental leave arrangements across the life course reduce female, particularly maternal, labour supply both in terms of labour force participation and working time participation.

    Abstract [en]

    Work Patterns and Capital Utilisation, with a preface by Edmond Malinvaud, is a detailed and comprehensive investigation dealing with microeconomic issues of the decision making process that lead to the adoption of particular work patterns. The book considers both the micro and macroeconomic consequences for capital utilisation, productivity growth and employment. It discusses alternative measures of capital utilisation and provides detailed comparative international information of work patterns and capital utilisation over the post-War period. The book includes two comparative international studies of work patterns and capital utilisation in the automobile industry. Policy issues at both the individual, firm and national level are addressed.

    The welfare State and Life Transitions: A European  Perspective.2010Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Welfare State and Life Transitions uses the lens of key life stages to highlight changes in these transitions and in available resources for citizen support within nine European welfare states.This timely book reveals that new life courses are found to require more, and not less welfare support, but only Sweden has developed an active life course approach and only three more could be considered supportive, in at least some life stages. For the remainder, policies were at best limited or, in Italy's case, passive. The contributors reveal that the neglect of changing needs is leading to greater reliance on the family and the labour market, just as these support structures are becoming more unpredictable and more unequal. They argue that alongside these new class inequalities, new forms of inter-generational inequality are also emerging, particularly in pension provision.

    Life course policies in Europe2006In: European Societies, Vol. 8, no 2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The main objective of this cross-country comparative paper is to analyse to which extent the design of national welfare state regimes shape households’ patterns of labour market integration over the life course. An analysis of the various national regulatory frameworks, with special focus on institutional opportunities and/or barriers to combine paid work with other social activities, is provided. Special attention is also given to companies’human resource and time management and whether human resource strategies encompass a life course perspective. By linking the specificity of the various regulatory and social protection systems to the country’s current patterns of labour market integration the authors not only examine the impact of the overall institutional framework on time allocation over the lifecourse but, also the extent to which the current working time options actually affect the sustainability of the social protection systems. Finally, in the conclusion, some policy implications are suggested with a special focus on the needs of finding new forms of time organisation and distribution of income over the life course. According to the authors these new forms of time management might contribute to a better work life balance for employees and might favour positive compromises between firms’ productive efficiency and employees’ needs for a larger control on their time structures over their life course.

    Working Time Options over the Life Course: Changing Social Security Structure2005Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study focuses on a sample of six European countries – France, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom. These cover a wide spectrum of the potential societal systems, with variations in labour market characteristics, welfare state regimes, gender relations, level of participation and working time patterns. As the selected countries diverge significantly in terms of social protection systems, working time and gender regimes, they illustrate the impact of the institutional structure on the gender division of paid work and income development over the life course.

    Abstract [en]

    Profound socio-economic, demographic and cultural changes currently under way in Europe are modifying the way in which people organise their time and income over the life course. The ageing population, globalisation, the transition from a standard working organisation model to more diversified and individualised structures and changes in the gender division of labour – these are all shifting the boundaries between people’s work and personal lives. At the same time, changes in the timing of entry into and exit from the labour market have considerably reduced the time devoted to paid work.

    Abstract [en]

    The article analyses the potential links between the life course approach andthe Transitional Labour Market (TLM) perspective. It provides some empiricalnevidence of the role played by age and gender in individuals’ situation on thenlabour market, as well as of the heterogeneity in life course patterns in Europe,

    using available data about employment rates, but also transitions matrices. It develops the theoretical foundations of the life course approach, and shows how it can be articulated with the TLM framework. First, the life course approach provides some insights concerning the determinants of transitions, nand their differentiation by age and gender. Second, it offers a conceptualization of time and irreversibility which helps understanding path dependency at both individual and institutional level, and underlines the importance of

    favouring the reversibility of choices through global policy reforms.

    Labour Market Transitions and Time Adjustment over the Life Course2008Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The standard life course is losing ground. More people - men and women -are active in the labour market than ever before, but work is not their only focus in life. In the rush hour of life, but also at the end of their career people work parttime, combine paid work with care or education or want more leisure. The transitional labour market approach in science and policy making looks at the way people make transitions between different

    domains of life or combine activities in these different domains. This results in questions like: can men cross the bridge to the field of care as easily as women? Which arrangements help women to return to the labour market after they have devoted some years to fulltime motherhood? Is parttime retirement to be preferred to fulltime retirement? And: who benefits from leave and other life course arrangements?

    The chapters of this book give the answers to these and several other questions related to labour market transitions between labour and care and transitions between the labour market and retirement. Scientists will be triggered by the theoretical notions and the firm empirical analyses. Policy makers may find inspiration for solutions to everyday policy problems that they will be facing during the next years as individual lifecourses will become more diverse.

    Self-employment and parental leave2015In: Small Business Economics, ISSN 0921-898X, E-ISSN 1573-0913, Vol. 45, no 4, p. 751-770Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The main objective of this paper is to analyse the extent to which employment status impacts upon the use of parental leave in Sweden. Our results show that during the child’s first two years of life Swedish female self-employees use on average 46 fewer days in parental leave (15 percent) than female wage earners, while male self-employees use on average 27 fewer days in parental leave (71 percent) than their wage earner counterparts.  We argue that the shorter average duration of parental leave among male self-employees is due to a combination of relatively higher costs of absence from work for self-employees compared to wage earners and a participation selection effect where some individuals with high performance-related income opt for self-employment and do not take parental leave at all, and where the self-employed who actually choose to take parental leave are similar to wage earners in terms of work-commitments and consequently reduces the difference in duration between self-employed and wage earners. On the other hand, given that all mothers, self-employees or wage earners, take parental leave, we do not find a participation effect among female self-employees. Instead, we suspect that there is an employment selection effect where women with high performance related income choose self-employment and consequently contributes to the shorter observed durations of parental leave for female self-employees.

    Beyond retirement: who stays at work after the standard age of retirement?2019In: International journal of manpower, ISSN 0143-7720, E-ISSN 1758-6577, Vol. 40, no 5, p. 917-938Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose Drawing on a unique combination of longitudinal administrative data and a postal survey, the purpose of this paper is to identify the socio-economic factors and individual characteristics that affect senior citizens' decision to continue working on the Swedish labour market after the standard retirement age. Design/methodology/approach By using standard econometric techniques (multinomial logit model) on a large representative sample of 20,000 senior citizens residing in Sweden, the auhtors analyse the extent to which socio-economic factors and individual characteristics including personality traits affect the decision of senior citizens to delay retirement and to continue working after the standard retirement age. Findings The results of our estimations show clearly that good health, high educational attainment/high-skilled jobs, good psychosocial work environment, employment status (to be self-employed), personality traits (extraversion, openness to experience and conscientiousness) as well as industrial sectors (agriculture, healthcare and transport) are strong predictors of the continuation of work after the standard retirement age (65 years old). Originality/value To the best of the authors' knowledge, the paper is the first attempt in Sweden to analyse jointly a large range of factors influencing the decision to remain in the labour force after the standard/normal pension age, including psychosocial working conditions and personality traits.

    Därför vill 40-talisterna jobba efter 652017In: Ekonomisk Debatt, ISSN 0345-2646, Vol. 45, no 5, p. 45-58Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Dagens generation av svenskar i åldersgruppen 65–74 år har en högre sysselsättningsgrad än tidigare generationer. I den här artikeln analyseras seniorernas motiv till att fortsätta att arbeta och varför andra går i pension, med fokus på vilka socioekonomiska faktorer som påverkar beslutet att fortsätta arbeta efter 65. Vi undersöker även om det finns vissa personlighets- och karaktärsdrag som utmärker de arbetande seniorerna, samt om det finns ett samband mellan arbete efter 65 och den allmänna tillfredsställelsen med livet.
