    Media propaganda and human rights issues: What can be learnt from  the former Yugoslavia's experience  in relation to the current developments in the Arab Spring countries?2015In: Journal of Arab & Muslim Media Research, ISSN 1751-9411, E-ISSN 1751-942X, Vol. 8, no 1, p. 21-36, article id 19741Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Recent history has proven that media propaganda can impact severely on human rights issues. This article aims at exploring what can be learnt from previous lessons in order to avoid the same mistakes happening again and/or to fight them more ­efficiently. It questions the experience of the former Yugoslavia in relation to the current developments in the Arab Spring countries. The propaganda theory is applied for an analysis of how the media were instrumentalized for political and nationalist goals under Milosevic’s regime. Through content discourse analysis, the techniques of media propaganda are described and analysed, and consequences are drawn. Although the situation varies from one case to another, widespread hate propaganda speeches in some Arab countries is a challenge to a successful political transition. This has been the case in Tunisia after the 2011 Revolution, where hatred messages have been widely spread by broadcast media and social networks. Propaganda theory has thus been applied to the specific case of broadcast television. The study shows that, contrary to some other countries, Tunisian society has its own peculiarities, and that it has succeeded in developing brakes that have reduced the scope and impact of propaganda messages of some extremist media. In view of past experiences, such as the former Yugoslavia or Rwanda, and in this context, this article also aims to demonstrate the full importance of the existence of quality public service media in the Tunisian case, and of an independent regulation of both traditional and social media. In its conclusion, this article also raises the question of social media regulation, which is all the more acute given that Tunisia is immersed in an environment where more and more hate content and stigmatization messages are developing.

    How and When Action Becomes Legitimised –: On Reliability and Validity in Interactive, Collaborative Research2019In: NordMedia 2019 Communication, Creativity & Imagination Malmö 21-23 August 2019, 2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is a range of fundamental question which has to be clarified when starting up an action research project. Such as:

    • How to establish validity and reliability of action research, i.e. distinguish between incremental and/or bolt-on change?
    • If the starting point is collaboration, who is then responsible for the intervention and does it have to be mutually beneficiary? Does action processes change both practices and research? 
    • Who has the final mandate to confirm the actual outcome, the researchers or the representatives for practices? 
    • How to make the action process mutually agreed, established and legitimized as both research and change of practices in collaborative interactive projects?

    The starting point for this contribution is to discuss the distinction between a pragmatic and a critical orientation within Action Research ( AR), which has been highlighted and problematized by in an article by Johansson & Lindhult (2008). Coupling this approach with Lucy Suchman’s (2000) early writings on discourses of innovation, makes it fruitful to focus upon how ethical and methodological issues of action quickly becomes synonymous with innovation in action-oriented project design. This will be discussed in relation to various action-oriented projects addressing local journalism innovation as well as projects within public sector.

    Regional press has a role in the functioning of democracy as well as being a core part of community life.  However, there are challenges in delivering that with limited resources. The Regpress Project 2 was aiming at gaining a deeper understanding of how local press must work to become more innovative while facing current challenges such as increased efficiency while at the same time satisfy traditional values such as trustworthiness. The AR-project combined action-oriented research including design workshops with the public in order to shed light on the overarching question;  How does the local papers handle the process of becoming leaner and more competitive whilst striving to maintaining its ‘trust anchor’ role in times when change becomes more or less mandatory?

    Working with the Fogbow: Design and reconfiguration of services and participation in eGovernment2003Licentiate thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is about  the metaphors  of the rainbow and the fogbow, investigations and evaluations, public internet monitors, writing women,reflections and discussions avout politics, design and democracy. It is also about the ongoing re-structuring of participation in service design within the development of eGovernment. The aim behind the drive towards eGovernmentis to modernise administration and make it more efficient. The transformation and modernisation of public services are proclaimed to bring about a change in services based on a "citizen-centric approach".  In such a process, communication between citizens and public authorities should play an essential role. Themes such as accountability, accessibility and particiaption all form part of the reconfiguration  and at the  same time these themes are shaped by the transformation. The papers in  this thesis discuss, in differnet ways , how this reconfiguration is enacted in practice. Theories  and methodologies from feminist theories, participatory design and informatics , are used in order to develop broader and more complex understandings of ongoing development within eGovernment.

    The AUGMENT Project: Co-constructive Mapping and Support of Accessibility and Participation2010In: Electronic Participation: Second IFIP WG 8.5 International Conference, ePart 2010, Lausanne, Switzerland, August 29 – September 2, 2010. Proceedings / [ed] Efthimios Tambouris ; Ann Macintosh ; Olivier Glassey, Berlin Heidelberg: Springer, 2010, p. 95-103Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents an ongoing multi-disciplinary research-and development project in which we are exploring emerging methods and practices for participatory design of tools and content of accessibility information in India and Sweden, based on user created content. The initial development of the AUGMENT-Project also includes the production of a prototype for sharing information. The joint set up and unfolding of public digital spaces and cooperative creation of processes and infrastructure for user-driven accessibility information is making use of existing handheld mobile phones which offer the possibility to upload pictures and comments via an application with a map-based interface. The research initiative is exploring and comparing cross-cultural participatory methods for cultivation of shared transformational spaces. The paper discusses both the notion of user-driven content and co-creation of tools and methods, drawing upon the tradition of Scandinavian Systems Design, explicitly arguing for direct user-representation in systems development.

    Digital Storytelling Crosswise: Silences, Identities, Places and Non-Humans2011In: Create, Share, Listen: The 4th International Conference on Digital Storytelling, Lillehammer,  February 5. – 7. 2011. Session A1, Place Based Stories and Cultural Heritage, 2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is based on our activities and reflections from two series of digital storytelling workshops organized in south-east of Sweden within the frames of the inter-regional project Delta Garden. The aim of the paper is to bring together these two workshop series from a number of analytical/thematic perspectives in order to identify similarities and differences in the stories created during the workshops.We introduce the article by shortly describing the workshops and stories created and after that move on to discuss experiences made in relation to the described specifics of the contexts were the digital storytelling workshops took place. The varying local contexts and the differences in group settings and different circumstances for the activities which took place, help to define three important dynamics of storytelling; how memories are related to embodied experiences of places; how silence help to shape stories; and how non-human actors intervenein the process of story-making. The practical experiences from the “Local history group” and the “Integration-group” form the basis for a concluding discussion about the need of a more adaptive approach to the Seven Elements of Storytelling (Lambert, 2010) as a way of structuring stories. We alsoemphasisethe importance of making room for diverse cultural worlds in story-making, hence challenging the hegemony of the grand narratives. The paperis structured as follows. First  the two workshop series are presented situated and localized, then we step forward by introducing the analytical perspectives we use in order to unfold the process of story-making and finally we move over to discussion and conclusions.

    KomInDu: A Small Project about Big Issues2004In: The proceedings from the biennial Participatory Conferences (PDC)2004, Toronto: CPSR , 2004 , 2004Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this short paper, we present glimpses from an interdisciplinary research and development project aimed at enhancing local democracy by developing ICT support for the consultation process around the comprehensive plan of a municipality. For the participating researchers, the project offered the opportunity of combining and comparing approaches and methods from two different design traditions that share democratic ideals and ambitions of nurturing citizen/user participation in design processes. This proved to be more challenging than we had originally anticipated. Differences in perspective gave different interpretations of the design context as well as of how participatory the processes actually were.

    Exploring Digital Storytelling as a method for participatory design2008In: PDC '08 Proceedings of the Tenth Anniversary Conference on Participatory Design 2008 / [ed] Toni Robertson, Jesper Simonsen, David Hakken, ACM Press, 2008, p. 297-298Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The core of Participatory Design builds on collaborative processes of users, designers and other stakeholders. [2] In order to realize this ambition a range of methods and techniques have been developed and used. Initially it was the ethnographic methods that were regarded as the most valuable ones, especially when investigating the userś everyday practices. [3] During the last years the methods repertoire has been expanded to also include methods inspired by narrative and visualization methods (games, story boards, digital scenarios etc.) [1, 7]

     E-förvaltning, dvs offentliga e-tjänster,  e-administration  och e-demokrati har kommit att bli ett vanligt inslag i kommuners, landstings, myndigheters och medborgares vardag. Förvaltning och medborgarskap i förändring  bidrar till att upprätta en dialog mellan  pågående forskning och etablerad praxis inom området e-förvaltning. Kapitlet diskuterar hur medborgarskap, yrkesrolelr och delaktighet  jämte stödjande teknik på en och samma gång kan tolkas som beständiga och anpassningsbara enheter.  Vidare granskas hur samspelet mellan stabilitet och elasticitet ömsom öppnar och stänger  för delaktighet utifrån exmeple hämtade konkreta utvecklingsprojekt som bedrivits inom offentlig sektor.

    Citizen-Driven Design: Leveraging Participatory Design of E-Government 2.0 Through Local and Global Collaborations2015In: Case Studies in e-Government 2.0: Changing Citizen Relationships / [ed] Boughzala, Imed; Janssen, Marijn; Assar, Said, Switzerland: Springer, 2015, 1, p. 67-85Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The goal of this chapter is to present how citizen-driven design of e-government can be promoted through trans-local cooperation. Our case study consists of the Augment project, which focuses on the design of a mobile service for co-creation of local accessibility. Our approach is action research based in the Scandinavian tradition of Participatory design. Experiences from this project highlight issues concerning how to reconfigure the basis for design of public services. In order to cultivate spaces for citizen-driven design and local innovation, we made iterative use of global collaborations. In the initial phase, influences from R&D cooperation with India provided new spaces for participatory design practices. In the next phase, a proof-of-concept process allowed for broader local stake-holder involvement. In the third phase, the service concept was shared and expanded with partner regions in Europe through exchange of Best Practices. Currently, we are moving towards phase four, the commercialization process. Beyond the iterative design of the mobile service itself, and what trans-local collaboration contributed in this context, we also discuss reconceptualization of innovation as incremental change. We argue that transnational collaboration can be deliberately made use of for leveraging incremental change on a local level and strengthening regional innovation systems and practices.

    Does user participation matter in the design and development of e-participation tools?: Experiences from a proof-of-concept project2011In: Ongoing Research and Projects of IFIP EGOV and ePart 2011, Linz: TRAUNER Verlag, 2011, p. 392-399Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

       This paper presents experiences from a proof-of-concept project concerning a tool for e-participation, Augment; a map-based mobile accessibility service which relies on user-generated content. Using a Participatory Design approach, the aim has been to include future users in the project from the start, so as to ensure that the resulting service will be a useful and sustainable tool for co-constructing accessibility in everyday life in collaboration among involved stakeholders. The project has been struggling with the complexities of combining academic competencies in Participatory Design and traditional project management and systems development approaches. One of the most difficult issues has been balancing widely differing experienced needs for controlling distributed end-user participation. Our experiences so far raise serious questions about how to combine models of open innovation and increased user-involvement with current mainstream user-centered software and service development models. While user-centered design seems to call for users-on-demand, user-driven innovation of e-participation tools could, we argue, benefit more from developers-on-demand.

    Making an exit in research: ethical and practical implications in a society dependent on sustainability2004In: Public Proofs: Science technology and democracy, Paris, 2004Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper draws upon experiences and involvement in several joint research- and development (R&D) projects, organised as a kind of “micro innovation system”, involving multi-organisational and multi-disciplinary cooperators, mainly within the area of e-government or IT-support for homecare. Each project was organised around development or costumization of a computer application, supporting for instance on-line public services, citizen participation or IT-support for home care within the public sector. However, after realisation of the projects, only a few of the applications are maintained. These projects could be regarded as concrete examples of the ongoing reconfiguration of a cluster in a regional innovation system (Miettinen, 2002, p.17, OECD, 1999), and not just as single, stand-alone projects in an expanding region, but also as vital parts in ongoing enactment and refiguration of an extensive national innovation system. The issue then becomes : what implications does this joint innovative growth-stimulation have for the question of completion of research in a growth-intense region, which is concentrating not solely on quick fixes but also on stabilizing innovation? What are the practical and ethical consequences of “making an exit” in the middle of an ongoing mustering of strength – for instance for the citizens, the researchers and the society? These issues are discussed in relation to empirical material gathered during involvement in the start-up of an e-government arena, within the framework of TANGO (Thematic arenas Nourish Growth Opportunities), a program partly funded through Innovative Actions within the European Regional Development Funding (ERDF). Findings, reflections and insights show tensions and ongoing negotiations concerning different perspectives expressed as process- as well as product-orientation in the development. The large amount of ICT-projects, are seen from another perspective, also contributing to the increasing growth in the region. One of the municipalities was appointed “National Leader in Growth municipality” in the year of 2001. The TANGO project itself may actually also be seen as a result of increased regional growth. But the question still remains: is it ever possible to stabilize innovation?

    Enrolling Local Strategic Actors in Public Portal Development2011In: Electronic Government: The 10th IFIP WG 8.5 International Conference on Electronic Government EGOV 2011, Proceedings / [ed] Marijn Janssen, Jochen Scholl, Maria Wimmer, Yao Hua Tan, Delft: Springer, 2011, p. 247-258Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The focus of this paper is on seemingly mundane but essential aspects of network formation between actors in E-government contexts. It is based on a qualitative case study of portal development in public healthcare. The theoretical framework applied is Actor-Network Theory (ANT). The research question is: What factors contribute to the enrolment of strategic local actors in technology development in E-government? It was found that seemingly simple but basic functionalities like e.g. information about illnesses, rights, healthcare providers as well as personal e-services were of strategic importance for enrolling local actors to the process and to the portal, serving as a kind of “enrolment devices.” The reason is their capacity to provide useful functionality and communicate usefulness. Due to the complexity of the environment, local support based on perceived and future usefulness as well as long-term project organization.

    Transmedia storytelling in strategic disability communication: practices and audiences2016In: Transmediations! Communication across Media Borders, Abstracts, Linnaeus University, Växjö, Sweden, October 13-15, 2016, 2016, p. 57-58Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Several (in parallel or subsequent) mediations of an ideological message of equal opportunities for people with disabilities can be presented in various forms with the aim of reaching a broad audience. Different media types are utilized in order to reach a global audience. A basic ideological message could be shared through transmedia storytelling over multiple technical platforms. Disability policies are thus represented in media in many different ways; in the form of accessibility models, a UN declaration on equal rights, policy documents, an instruction movie, an interest groups postings in Facebook, a standardization formula; or spread over web based platforms exposing videos, photographs and non- professional stories produced by ordinary people, describing how it is to live with different forms of disability. Transmedia storytelling has become a natural part of policy implementation and legitimization of policies, thus also transgressing the traditional borders of official strategical communication. Questions of interest to discuss concerning embodiment of strategical transmedia storytelling in communication on disability, could draw on Eders (2014) typology; choice, reception and appropriation. How is an ideological text or source message, intended for public communication, adapted when transformed into marketing campaigns (choice), entertainment, edutainment or art (reception), or expressed as fan culture, criticism and parodies (appropriation)? The suggested presentation is empirically grounded and draws upon empirical material gathered in focus groups interviews and through content analysis of different sources. The analysis uses content analysis and media elicitation with selected groups, discussing three perspectives; 1) how the practice of embodiment of stories in different transmedia forms are received by the audience; 2) what role interaction plays in transmediation and 3)what changes/ reinforcement of the original message is discernable in the different adaptations. However, the overall aim of the study is to open up a discussion on what role transmedia storytelling plays/could play in public strategical communication.

    Critical Design and the creation of alternative visions: literally and metaphorically Critical2014Report (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Critical design methods and thinking is gaining increasing interest during design of artefacts, applied mainly by interaction designers in order to create designs that cause reflections (on roles, norms, values, practices, cultures). It forces reflection among the users of the artefacts, since the artefact is aimed to provoke, and to support visions of alternative realities, other ways of being and living. However, ways to create such provocations, reflections and visions among the professionals (designers, researchers and practitioners) is not explored as much. If considering critical design rather as a position than an approach for design, how can we support reflection among us as professionals? Thereby, enable usage of critical design in our profession? These, and related questions, will be reflected upon and discussed during the workshop.

    Representational practices in demands driven development of public sector2013In: ELECTRONIC GOVERNMENT (EGOV 2013) / [ed] Maria A. Wimmer, Marijn Janssen, Hans J. Scholl, Springer, 2013, p. 200-211Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper concerns representational practices in demands driven development of public sector, and the problems they involve. The term demands driven development refers to a movement in public sector towards a closer cooperation with the citizens, primarily with regards to the development of public e-services. The objective with the paper is to explore representational practices through the analysis of practitioners' talk about demands driven development. There are several interrelated problems with representational practices, in this paper analysed through the discussions of practitioners who work with demands driven development of public sector. The conclusion is that these practitioners work with representational practices in a way which they at the same time seem to consider rather problematic.

    In this article, the gap between participatory design of services and planning processes is identified. This means that any innovations in service design – whether technological, social, or locality-based – are not fully developed. The authors address the relationship between operational design and strategic planning. The article feeds some of the insights gained from participatory design into debates about collaborative and communicative planning by drawing on two exemplars. One focuses on creating a synergy between designing and planning in transforming neighborhood-based children’s services: the other discusses the design of Web 2.0 for on-line public consultancy for comprehensive planning and for mobile services for disabled people. All require synergies between operational design and strategic planning to support participation in collaborative planning for accessibility in urban spaces. The article shows how the development of design constituencies within various contexts of participatory design provides a vehicle for developing collaborative and communicative planning.

    Regional press as “trust anchor” in global digital communication: the voices of journalism in Southern Sweden2018In: Problems and Solutions for Producing Local News in the Digital Age: A Comparative Perspective in Proceedings of the 68th Conference by the Information and Communication Association (ICA) in Prague May 24-28. / [ed] Joy Jenkins, Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism,Oxford University, 2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The RegPress project found that in Southern Sweden, the regional press maintains high and stable levels of sales, fulfills a “watchdog” role, and takes part in community building. The RegPress project used mixed methods to study media audiences, conducting 67 qualitative interviews, nine focus groups, and a survey of 9,000 people. It found that readers draw on a range of media sources, and they see the regional press as a “trust anchor” in a global digital world. As a trust anchor, the regional press acts as a point of reference for readers to access news and debate. They develop media practices based on this understanding as they engage with civic, political, and cultural issues. Trust anchors also help readers interpret information from social media and other sources. The voices of journalism in regional press are therefore located dynamically amongst local people, issues, and interests as well as other media sources.

    RegPress project final report: the role and value of regional press in a global media culture2017Other (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the project was to understand the role of regional media in southeast Sweden. The regional press have had a strong presence and has been part of the regional life since 1841.

    The print media has for long had a significant influence in society as a fourth estate. The daily press has long been engaged in critical analysis of social phenomena and authority and acted to help increase community involvement. Even on the basis of this strong position the regional press face a number of challenges such as increased convergence and maintain storage numbers, selling advertising space and maintain their distribution areas.

    The project  addressed the emerging issue of what role and value regional media has in our modern media society. How do the media connect with the local population? How does journalism ensure and promote diversity in the media presentation and prevents discontinuity in the global media age?REGPRESS is funded through a partnership between the Barometern Foundation, Linnaeus University and Fojo Media Institute (FOJO).

    The project started in 2015 and completed in october 2017.
