    Empowerment – human dimension in nature conservation2013In: Chrońmy Przyrodę Ojczystą, ISSN 0009-6172, Vol. 69, no 2, p. 86-95Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Both practitioners and scholars have neglected the social aspects of nature conservation. e recent socio- economic transition in Central and Eastern Europe has led to increasing awareness of the necessity to integrate the needs of communities into the management of natural environments. e authors argue that in Poland the growing awareness of the connection between local communities and the nature conservation needs to be followed by more community participation in the management of natural environments. By highlighting the human element in nature conservation and the concept of empowerment, the article discusses the validity of using participatory approaches to biodiversity management in CEE and in Poland.

    The superfluous obstacle or the prerequisite for sustainable development: exposing participation in Leader and Natura 2000 in Poland2014In: Ekonomia i Środowisko, ISSN 0867-8898, Vol. 48, no 1, p. 46-63Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Over the past two decades Poland has experienced socio-economic and political changes with the most important stepping stone toward transition from a communist to a democratic political system was the collapse of the Communist Regime in 1989. Since the early 90s, the European Union (EU) has become a primary agent of political transition through different policies and funding mechanisms, having significant impacts on how rural development is implemented. After the country’s accession to the EU in 2004, regional and local rural programs promoted participatory mechanisms with communities acting as the legitimate stakeholder to determine conditions for rural development.

    Looking At Residents’ Attitudes towards Spring Break Tourism in Texas through the Lens of Community Attachment2014In: Florida International University Hospitality Review, ISSN 0739-7011, Vol. 31, no 4Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The growth of spring break tourism in many destinations has become problematic, predominantly due to the excessive behaviour of college students. This paper examines residents’ attitudes toward spring break tourism in South Padre Island (located in Texas, USA) through the lens of community attachment. By understanding the attitudes of residents of the host communities, tourism planners and policy-makers can create policies to shape the character of tourism according to the residents’ needs. The findings suggest that, at this point in time, community residents perceive that the benefits of spring break tourism benefits exceed its’ costs. Also, the short and intense season of spring break tourism allows residents to better deal with social costs.

    Community Participation and Empowerment in Rural Post-Communist Societies: Lessons from the Leader Approach in Pomerania, Poland2015In: Tourism Planning & Development, ISSN 2156-8316, E-ISSN 2156-8324, Vol. 12, no 4, p. 381-397Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Empowerment, community participation and social capital have all been heavily researched within tourism development, yet few have looked at how they apply in a post-communist rural society. Filling the gap, this work helps to understand the community participation and empowerment in rural post-communist communities. The study demonstrates that despite there being an agreement that sustainable tourism development must consider residents’ needs and involve them in planning processes, empowering communities in the post-communist Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) setting is challenging owing to the unique political culture of the CEE. The qualitative approach was used to better capture tourism stakeholders' perspectives and experiences of challenges to community participation in tourism development in a post-communist setting.

    Med omtanke om staden: Motiv till privatpersoners engagemang i samhällsplanering2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Community planning is a complex process in which many different interests have to come together. Cities have always been under continuous development, but today there is a pressure from different stakeholders to build and densify the central parts of many cities. Disagreements arise when the opinions of citizens don’t correlate with the public institutions' way of conducting community planning. This study aims to investigate what motivates individuals in the city of Kalmar to engage in community planning processes. The theoretical framework of the study include theories about citizen participation and controversies in planning processes. Data has been generated through interviews and the project in focus was the Linnaeus University’s building of new facilities in Ölandshamnen, a project that has been debated by public insitutions and citizens for several years. Results from the study show that individuals engaged in the planning process for different reasons, whereof two main reasons where experiences of a non-functioning democracy, and experiences of dominant public support for other proposed locations. The study concludes that there is a big difference between how people perceive their involvement and how it is treated by other stakeholders.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates the relationship between names of hun- dreds, village names correlating with hundred names, and places of assembly. Usually it is assumed that many of the hundreds were given names from names of villages where the assemblies of the hundreds were held. However, when the matter is studied more carefully, taking landscape, field names, and historical and archaeological sources into consideration, another picture is visible: It seems that there are very specialplaces in landscape, archaic and mythic ones, presumably placesof assembly, which in their landscape setting and mythic status as well as by their names link legal activity of the hundreds to a remote prehistoric past. It is likely that the names of these places are the origin of both the hundred names and correlating names of villages in the vicinity. A case study is presented, about Harjager hundred in south-west Scania), Stora and Lilla Harrie villages, and Harthaker ‘ hard field’. The results could support the view that names of archaic places in landscape, rather than correlating village names, are the onomastic origin of the hundred names. But the picture is complex and from this case alone other interpretations are possible as well.

    Place names, Landscape and Assembly Sites in Skåne, Sweden2015In: Journal of the North Atlantic, ISSN 1935-1984, E-ISSN 1935-1933, Vol. 8, no sp8, p. 82-92Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper discusses a particular type of assembly site in medieval and presumably even older times for the exercise of justice in the province of Skåne (Scania) in southern Sweden (Scandinavian medieval: approx. AD 1050–1520). Through a close and detailed consideration of historical and antiquarian research focused around two key landscape case studies—Torna hundred and Vemmenhög hundred—this study challenges long-established models of assembly formation, location, and naming. The paper concludes by providing an entirely new perspective on what place-names associated with legal practice and judicial administration might signal about the genesis and organization of early medieval systems of power and justice.

    Bostadsbubbla i Stockholm kommun: Sann existens eller falsk spekulation?2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In light of the massive property bubbles that have been bursting in the USA, Spain and Ireland during the last decade, the aim of this thesis is to clarify whether – or to what degree - the municipality of Stockholm might experience a property bubble in the near future. The municipality of Stockholm is undergoing a housing shortage and house prices have risen during the last few years. Neoliberalism and property bubbles are used as a theoretical framework in this paper. The methodology consist of semi structured interviews, analysis of documents and statistical data from Eurostat, Valueguard and the Swedish administrative authority; Statistiska centralbyrån (SCB). The house market of Stockholm municipality has since 1990 been influenced by neoliberal ideologies. The state of Sweden has eliminated house subvention and interest contribution during the government of the liberal parties. Rented apartments have been converted to co-operative apartments as they generate a higher value, but they also claim a higher economic strength by its speculators. Special design program for new house constructions is another turn to neoliberal ideology by the municipalities. They desire to build outstanding top projects to generate more attractive areas. The result however, demonstrates that there is no existing risk of a bursting property bubble in the municipality of Stockholm. Even if there is a lack of housing, there are more dwellings than we think. There must be mobility in the existing stock of dwellings. Political regulations, as capital gains tax, discourage this mobility. Together with the increase in population and a shortage of new house constructions, the house prices have risen. The reason for the property bubble not existing mostly depends on three factors; fundamental values that explain the increasing house prices; persons with high mortgage loan also have high income; Sweden has no tradition of seeing dwellings as a speculative resource.

    Abstract [en]

    How is space conceptualized? The question is central to subject theory in human geography. In the present dissertation, this issue is actualized in discussions of the virtual, space, and an ontology of becoming. The point of departure is that in human geography, as well as in the general discourses in society, a science fiction-like conception of the virtual has been dominant. The virtual is understood as another reality and as an absolute space. Predominant perceptions of the space and the virtual are problematized in Space in Becoming, and based on analyses of complex sets of ideas grounded in actor-network theory and Deleuzian geophilosophy, an alternative approach is formulated. The aim is to provide an enhanced conceptual understanding of space and the virtual. In order to fulfill the aim, three tasks are performed. Firstly, the prevalent conception of the virtual is presented. Secondly, a conception of space grounded in an ontology of becoming is constructed and defined, expressed in three postulates. Thirdly, the importance of the ontology of becoming and the postulates for the conception and conceptualization of space are discussed in relation to subject theory in human geography. Since the present work centers on treatment of concepts and ideas, a postulate method was selected. The postulate method also makes argumentation and discussion on theoretical and analytical levels possible. The outcome of the project is formulated in three postulates – actants do space, assemblages fold space, and the virtual is a real dimension of space. Accordingly, the main contribution to the conceptual understanding of space and the virtual is the construction and specification of the three postulates. The notion of the virtual as an ontological dimension emerges, with direct implications for the conception and conceptualization of space. The ontology of becoming offers an alternative point of departure, a different perspective on the virtual, and thereby also on virtual geography. This is further elucidated by returning to the point of departure for the dissertation project. The postulates contribute to subject theory in human geography by providing an alternative point of departure for future theoretical research and the formulation of new theories. Accordingly, the particular conception of space expressed in the three postulates brings a challenge in terms of both method and vocabulary.

    En postindustriell stads dynamik: Kalmars samarbeten och konkurrenser i strävan efter expansion genom handel2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The thesis strives to reveal the dynamics between a central and a peripheral shopping area in Kalmar, Sweden. The establishment of larger shopping centers has become a hallmark of postindustrial cities. Cities globally are at risk of creating an urban economic rift between the central and peripheral shopping areas. By establishing major shopping venues around the traditional central business districts, cities hope to create a larger customer hinterland and thereby also increased economic growth. The aim of this thesis is answered by two research questions regarding collaboration and competition between two shopping areas; the central Kvarnholmen and peripheral Hansa City Mall. As it theoretical framework, the thesis mobilizes discussions on the postindustrial city as well as additional economic theory concerning the so-called Disneyization. An overview over previous research is provided, and empirical data was produced through the following methods; Semi-structured interview, structured interview, simple observation and document analysis. The results were analyzed using a universal approach.

     

    The thesis concludes that the dynamics between the two shopping areas are fluctuating; sometimes characterized by cooperation, other times by competition. Kalmar municipality’s retail strategy aims and encourages the shopping areas to collaborate. When seeing Kalmar on a smaller scale, this is surely the case: the shopping areas are seemingly united, with common image production and working together towards their hinterland. Viewing the dynamics on a larger local scale, however, a strong competition between Kvarnholmen and Hansa City Mall is evident; as both shopping areas strive to retain their consumers on their specific area of trade.

    Etnisk boendesegregation: En kvalitativ studie om etnisk boendesegregation i Nybro ur ett postkolonialt perspektiv2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    A refugee reception has been placed in Kungshall, one of Nybros residential areas. The area has a bad reputation and there are arguably prejudices about the area from the local population. I therefore want to investigate if an ethnic residential segregation exists in Kungshall, from a postcolonial perspective. The following research questions have been formulated: How do residents who doesn’t live in the refugee reception, look at ethnic residential segregation in Nybro? How has Kungshall changed since the refugee reception? Does a cultural racism exist in Kungshall?

     

    The study is a qualitative study using semi structured interviews of four people living in the residential area, a person who has moved out of the area and a person working on the housing corporation “Nybro bostads AB”, who is one of the housing corporation responsible for the residential area Kungshall. The study is based on post-colonial theory. According to all the interviewees, there is an uneven balance between Swedes and immigrants in the neighborhood. And according to all the interviewees living in the area, too many refugees have been placed in Kungshall, and the residential area has changed for the worse in recent history. One of the interviewees has already moved, and the others living in the area either know someone who has moved out of the area or is planning to themselves. And the main reason to ethnic residential segregation is often explained in terms of cultural differences between “us-and- them”: between the refugees and the others. It is clear from the interviews that there is a cultural racism among people and the main reason for people moving out of the area could arguably be related to cultural racism.

    Abstract [en]

    There has been a recent debate in swedish media about wether public breastfeeding is acceptable or not. Studies from mostly North America and England has shown that women feel uncomfortable breastfeeding in public. Sweden has a high rate of breastfeeding. The World Healh Organization recommends exclusive breastfeeding until the child is six months. There has not been any studies approaching women’s individual experiences of breastfeeding exclusively in Sweden and therefore the purpose of this study was to explore women’s experiences of breastfeeding in public and see if the experiences changes the breastfeeding behavior. The two research questions were – what are women’s experiences of breastfeeding in public places, and are women limited geographically when they are breastfeeding?

    The study has a qualitative approach using semi-structured interviews as a method. Four women were interviewed and the results showed that the women mostly were comfortable breastfeeding in public but they could feel uncomfortable because they experienced that other people could be uneased with them breastfeeding in public places. Some of the women felt that they had to be discrete and therefore hid their breast. Two of the women were actively reflecting on their breastfeeding as a way to normalize public breastfeeding. The women are not directly geographically limited, but because they feel uncomfortable they can create private rooms in public places by being discrete.

    Kulturarvet i Ringsberg-Kristineberg: En analys av inkludering och exkludering i planeringsmetoden cultural planning2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Ringsberg-Kristineberg is an area that contains a great cultural history dating back to the 18th century. In this area the city of Växjö is hoping to develop a “cultural and creative centre”. To achieve this they have used a planning method called cultural planning, this method uses for example a place’s culture and heritage as a guide in the search for what makes a certain place unique. The project in Ringsberg-Kristineberg made me interested in finding out which cultural heritages that were included and excluded in the future “cultural and creative centre”. I found three documents that contained the planning process of the project in Ringsberg-Kristineberg which I used as a material for a quantitative content analysis and qualitative textual analysis. The aim in this study is to examine which cultural heritage has been included and excluded in the accompanying documentation of the cultural planning-process in Ringsberg-Kristineberg. This was done by answering the following questions: (1) What does the inclusion / exclusion of cultural heritage look like in the accompanying documentation of the cultural planning method? (2) Seen from a timeline perspective; does it differ what has been included / excluded if one compares the accompanying documentation?The result shows that the first and the third of three documents show the exact same result regarding what has been included and excluded. The second document differs, it includes less heritages compared to the other two documents. Some of the included heritages are cultivation and planting, the brewery industry, the old prison and the old school town.
