    Determinants of gubernatorial vetoes in the context of death penalty legislation2019In: The 51st Annual Northeastern Political Science Association Conference, 2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    While state legislatures have been at the center of shaping death penalty statutes during the 2000s, so have governors at rare but crucial moments. The ability to issue gubernatorial vetoes has been used not only to prevent abolition from occurring, but also to bar the state from enacting legislation to expand it. However, little is known about what factors affect the likelihood of a governor deciding to veto these often highly controversial bills. This is surprising considering the pivotal role governors can sometimes play in this context, able to grant clemencies to varying degrees and also impose death penalty moratoriums. This article examines gubernatorial vetoes in the context of death penalty legislation, assessing the extent to which institutional constraints as well as individual aspects affect the use of vetoes. Empirical analysis of a unique dataset comprised of enacted and vetoed legislation pertaining to capital punishment in 38 states from 1999 through 2018 suggest that individual attributes, and to a lesser extent institutional aspects, have an effect on the likelihood of a governor issuing a veto in the legislative context of capital punishment, but that this also greatly depends on the type of bill. I argue that both individual features and institutional design are useful when examining the many varieties of capital punishment in the U.S. and how governors participate in shaping death penalty statutes.

    “Is Sweden Finally Waking Up?”: Debating the 2018 Swedish National Election on 4chan2019In: Statsvetenskaplig Tidskrift, ISSN 0039-0747, Vol. 121, no 3, p. 441-463Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Today’s ever evolving media landscape offers a multitude of ways to consume and spread political information and opinions, especially in election times. Yet in this diverse media ecosystem, not all communication occurs in the public sphere. This study explores how the 2018 Swedish national election was discussed in a less accessible international online space associated with alt-right ideology and profoundly offensive content, with focus on how political positions were debated and expressed. The analytical approach applied sees participants in the discussions as members of an electronic tribe, which in turn is situated along an influential, yet often overlooked, hybridized flow of communication that defies previous models of analysis. Results suggest that while support for right-wing political parties and politics is prevalent on the site and is expressed using a common protocol, positions are also debated internally, sometimes adopted only to later be abandoned, highlighting the non-fixed, fleeting aspects of online existence.

    Partisanship and Stability in Capital Punishment Decisions2014Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Relatively similar death-penalty eligible crimes can render drastically different outcomes in different US states. The understudied role of state supreme justices is key to understanding this issue, particularly justices' political influences. This study explores the linkage between electoral politics and judicial voting behavior, using models that include judge-related as well as case-related variables. It covers three US states and analyzes a total of 388 death penalty opinions (2,696 individual justice votes).

    Transatlantic Ties in Turbulence: the Trump Presidency Test2019In: The Swedish Network for European Studies Spring Conference 2019, 2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Relations across the Atlantic have weathered many storms since the end of World War II. A Cold War has come and gone, internal and external challenges appeared and faced, colored by the political leadership at the time. Yet as Europe-U.S. relations have continued to transform and adapt, fears have been raised that the most recent U.S. election is causing tension serious enough to upend the very foundation on which the transatlantic partnership rests. For example, Donald Trump’s unilateralist and protectionist rhetoric, conveyed in remarkable confrontational manner stand in stark contrast with his predecessor Barack Obama’s multilateral approach to solving global problems. However, can the advent of one U.S. president singlehandedly threaten the relationship which has prevailed for over 70 years? While possible ramifications have yet to fully form after only two years in office, a closer look at the current president’s verbal actions so far can however provide insight. With basis in a constructivist approach, this paper provides a content analysis of public statements relating to Europe by U.S. presidents from the 1960s and onwards with the aim of capturing the U.S. narrative surrounding the transatlantic relationship expressed over time. Results indicate that the image of a wronged, unfairly treated U.S., particularly when it comes to trade and security, is the most prevalent in Donald Trump’s antagonism towards Europe, but also that similar arguments have appeared before.

    Women State Legislators and the Death Penalty in the U.S.2019In: The American Political Science Association State Politics and Policy Conference, 2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    While the death penalty in the U.S. is generally described as existing in a state of overall decline, legislative battles not only over whether the policy should be repealed, but also if it should be expanded, continue. Often assumed to be a battle along partisan lines, neither history nor current developments at state level provide convincing support for such an assumption. Another layer of assumptions has also been made regarding women legislators and capital punishment. Women legislators are generally caught between a perception of on the one hand, lacking the ability as lawmakers to handle the violent threat posed by crime, while on the other hand, being particularly credible due to a perceived heightened ability of caring for others and being compassionate. In practice, women legislators should thus be involved in legislation that could be considered as far too lenient, or focused primarily on only one area, such as the rights of the defendant. Capital punishment however, I argue, does not follow generalized notions on what constitutes a “women’s issue” and subsequently how women legislators handle this type of oftentimes very controversial legislation. Based upon a unique dataset comprising legislation relating to the death penalty collected from each death penalty state during the years 1999-2018, analyses of the content of bill proposals and well as patterns of women’s sponsorship of such are conducted and related to the institutional and partisan state context. Results indicate that women legislators throughout the states do indeed introduce bills with the aim of protecting vulnerable groups, yet these bills have drastically different outcomes that defy easy categorization along gender, as well as, partisan lines.
