    Utveckling av postmaterialismen: En jämförande studie av Polen och Ukraina2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This is a comparative case study research on the development of the postmaterial values in two European countries, Poland and Ukraine. The study is done with the basis in a sociological theory developed in the 1970s by an American scientist, Ronald Inglehart. The main characteristic of his theory is the transformation of individual values, changing from materialist values, where the economic and the physical security were emphasized, to post-materialist values, which instead emphasize self-expression and autonomy. He has two hypotheses explaining the value change. First is the assumption that an individual’s values reflect the socioeconomic environment, and the second is that people tend to place high priorities on whatever the needs are in short supply. Once the basic economic and physical security needs are met, other values are given higher priority, for instance belonging, self-expression and autonomy. The aim of my study was to compare the postmaterialist values developement in Poland and the Ukraine, to see, if Inglehart’s hypotheses can be applied on those two countries. The main source of my analysis was the database “World Value Survey”. The result of my study showed that the habitants in Poland have more postmaterialistic values, than the habitants of the Ukraine. That is accordingly to the hypotheses and the theory of the postmaterial development by Inglehart.

    Russia's involvement in the Syrian conflict. : A case study of realist and liberalist analysis of Russia's main motives for engagement in the Syrian conflict. 2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In 2011 Arab Spring reached Syria and violence broke out causing great losses among civilians. Due to Russia’s clear standpoint toward interventions in states internal affairs, the UN Security Council’s has failed four resolutions on the Syrian crisis, which Russia viewed as damaging to its ally, Bashar al-Assad, the head of Syrian government. After four years since the war in Syria, Syrian authorities asked Russia for assistance against the Syrian regime’s enemies, which Russia grants. This study examines Russia’s actions toward Syria from realist and liberalist theoretical perspectives in order to derive which of the theories can best explain Russia’s motives for engagement in the Syrian conflict. The study is conducted as a case study approach and performed using indicators logically substructed from the theories for analysis of meaningsful texts of the empirical data. The outcome of the study is that Russia’s involvement in the Syrian conflict is guided by its geopolitical thinking and nation state security. Maintaining its presence in the region, Russia gains control over oil and gas assets. Russia’s non-intervention principle has been an effective tool to prevent the regime change in Syria, on the fate of which depends how far will Russia advance.

    Kontroversen Indiens dotter: En kvalitativ idéanalys av dokumentärfilmen Indiens dotter2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this essay is to describe what the documentary film India’s daughter tells the viewer about the Indian society through an idea analysis. India’s daughter, released in 2015, directly became a big discussion. Since documentary films are sources of information and might affect opinions it is interesting to analyze one. To be able to examine what is said in the film, the following question will be used: What is said about women and their place in the Indian society, Does the ideas show that change is needed or not? and Is there anything that points to that what is said in the documentary affects people’s opinion?

    The theories used in this essay is feminism and conservatism as ideal types to describe in what direction the ideas are heading, and theories about how media affects opinions to see if what is said in the film actually matters.

    The result shows that the content of the film and the ideas about women does matter for people’s opinion. It is also clear that there are at least two different ideas about what place women should have in the society, even though the idea that change is needed is the most popular.

    NATO 1989-2015: NATO:s säkerhetpolitiska arbetsprocessfrån 1989 till 2015 sett utifrån Berlinmurensfall och konflikten i Afghanistan2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The main purpose with the essay is to look into NATO and annalise how the organisation haschanged it´s security policy work process today 2015, seen from two different world eventsduring the period 1989-2015, the collapse of the Berlin wall and war in Afghanistan. Purposeand issuses also apply based on two theories Anarchymodel and World society model. In orderto highlight two different ways to see NATO:s security policy work process over time untilthe present day.

    Issues:

    • How did the fall of Berlin wall in 1989 change NATO:s security policy work process?

    • How did the war in Afghanistan in 2001 change NATO:s security policy work process?

    The essay is a qualitative method literature review describing NATO as an organisation andworld events that had impact on NATO over time.

    The result show that NATO has shifled it´s borders further fast because ”new” membercountries from the former Soviet Union are party members. NATO has moved closer toRussia, and increased in momentum. A possible armed conflict could be in the advantage ofnew markets that werwe previously isolated and intiate a co-operation with entrant´s.

    The result also shows that terroism and conflicts are carried out between operators and groupswithout fixed borders. It is largely down to the balance of power between NATO and Warsawpact dosesn´t exist anymore. Earlier controlled Superpowers of their allies. It has providedspace for new opponents to understand rights and responsibilities according to their way ofthinking and acting on that basis. These operators are weaker in impact strength and hencethey act according to their own circumstances and conditions, often through terroism. NATOhas transformed a large part of it´s security policy process to better respond to threats such asterroism.

    Europaparlamentsval och partipolarisering: En kvantitativ analys av polariseringens effekter på valdeltagandet i Europaparlamentsvalen 2004 och 20092014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The main purpose of this study is to examine if variations in voter turnout for the European Parliament elections in each member state is affected by the rate of national party polarization on the EU-dimension of party politics. The theoretical background assumes that a high level of polarization generates higher voter turnout since more alternatives are presented to the electorate. This makes it easier for the electorate to find a party that represents their preferences. This will, in turn, increase the likelihood that they will participate in the election.This study uses a research design based on a quantitative analysis with data from each member state, except those with compulsory voting, in the European Parliament elections of 2004 and 2009. The results of the analysis indicate a relationship between high levels of party polarization and lower turnout in the European Parliament election. There seem to be a tendency that in systems where there is greater polarization, the voters tend to participate less in the European Parliament elections.

    Krims återförenande med fosterlandet: - Ett rättfärdigt krig?2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 180 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay seeks to evaluate whether or not  the war in Crimea, conducted by the Russian Federation, is to be considered “just”. This is done in accordance with the theory of Just war, which demands that there be two separate evaluations of the war. Firstly the reasons and actions that lead up to the war must be evaluated if they fulfill the demands set up by the theory, this is called “Jud ad bellum”. Next, the conduct once in the war must be evaluated if it fulfills the demands set up in the theory, this is called “jus in bello”. The Russian occupation of Crimea was not following a declaration of war, was against several international agreements and the war was not a last resort after attempts of diplomatic solutions  all of these actions violate key demands of jus ad bellum.

    Going through reports by various human rights organizations on the matter, the demands set up by “jus in bello” are determined to not be satisfied, mostly due to the Russian use of torture on prisoners to subtract incriminating information for use in court against prisoners of war.

    Försvarsmakten och jämställdhet: En kvalitativ fallstudie om den statliga myndighetens målsättning2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Kampen för ett jämställt samhälle vad gäller lika rättigheter, möjligheter och skyldigheter oavsett vad, har länge förts världen över. Utvecklingen som skett på samhällets olika plattformar förklaras ha gått långsamt samtidigt som den är ett faktum. Kampen förs både på det privata såväl som det offentliga planet, med arbetsgivaren som ett exempel. En omdiskuterad arbetsgivare i diskussionen om jämställdhet är den svenska Försvarsmakten som också är en statlig myndighet. Arbetsgivaren förklarar sig ha ’hoppat på tåget’ vad gäller jämställdhetsarbetet, men med vetskapen om att den än idag, är en i hög grad mansdominerad arbetsplats så är det av väsentlighet att undersöka vilka verkliga ambitioner myndigheten har, vad man har gjort för att implementera detta samt vilka utmaningar som ligger framför myndigheten i frågan om jämställdhet. En kvalitativ fallstudie utav det offentliga material som finns att tillgå gällande Försvarsmaktens jämställdhetsarbete samt kompletterande samtalsintervjuer med anställda i organisationen, visar på ett ambitiöst utvecklingsarbete och en hög vilja till att verka som jämställd och attraktiv arbetsgivare för samtliga av samhällets medlemmar. Indikationer tyder på att utmaningarna organisationen har att möta innebär ett påverkansarbete utanför myndighetens egna murar.

    Normative Power FRONTEX? Assessing Agency Cooperation with Third Countries2017Report (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Human rights groups frequently criticise FRONTEX and the legality of the agency’s operations has been questioned in scholarly literature. At the same time, recent studies have shown that humanitarian concerns are increasingly emphasised in FRONTEX’s rhetoric. Drawing on Manners’ concept of ‘Normative Power Europe’, and Niemann and de Wekker’s framework for empirical analysis of normative power Europe, this paper assesses FRONTEX’s cooperation with third countries with a focus on one norm: respect for fundamental rights. It examines to what extent the agency shows a genuine commitment to the implementation of fundamental rights and to what extent the agency is acting in a normative way, i.e. applying universal norms and showing willingness to listen to and learn from the experiences of third countries. The analysis suggests that that the agency has moved towards a more genuine commitment towards fundamental rights implementation and that there is a fair degree of inclusivity and reflexivity to third country cooperation. However, the possibility of internal conflicts of interest as well as discrepancies between what is stated on paper and what is happening on the ground may stand in the way of the agency’s exercising normative power.

    Nya Moderaterna - nya väljare: En kvantitativ teoriprövande fallstudie av långtgående dealignment i Sverige med fokus på Moderaterna2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish Moderate Party had for a long time varied widely in election results. This

    essay emerges that the theory of dealignment and realignment explains the variation. Dealignment meaning that contemporary voters in western democracies don’t establish relations with political parties in a wide form as traditional. This essay show that the traditional ways of political identity and later voting acts are not important in the same way as before. The Moderate party has in the public eye been a party that people tend to have strong feelings about. The established explanation, the right left scale and class, were found to be less likely to explain why people like or don ́t like the Moderate Party. It is part of a major social change that has been established in most Western democracies. Essentially, this is about new post material value based parties. This study shows that it also affects a large established party like the Moderate Party and a part of a realignment in Swedish politics where new patterns are established. Also that it is an ongoing development were social background and political scale of the traditional values are becoming more and more ineffective in the cause of contemporary voters' behavior.

    Det konstateras att Botswana och Sydafrika har en fungerade demokrati. Men är de fullständigt demokratiska enligt Robert Dahl?2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    his Essay refers to a comparative study. The comparative study is specifically between Botswana and South of Africa. The main aim is to examine the flaws and shortcomings in each of the country, especially the constitutional democracy of every one of them. By doing a research, I have found that both of the countries share, nor exactly but very similar aspects of history and background information. One thing South Africa and Botswana have in common is industry of developing diamonds. To be able to understand the history of each and other country, it is important to define the time delimitation. The time delimitation extends way back from 1966, this when Botswana became and independent constitutional community. Botswana is, till this day, still an independent country.Meanwhile, South Africa became a democratic government in 1977, and especially when Nelson Mandela was voted to become the first president of color. Mr. Mandela did not just inspire his own community, nor his people about the articles that refers to human rights, he did inspire the whole wide world about his admissions and strength to overcome racism in such way. Today’s view back, at each and every country, there is a clear pattern that these two countries, and many more countries in Africa have made a wide democracy progress because of the human rights articles. Though, the biggest issue these countries may have in common, unfortunately, is the high level of discrimination. While using Rober Alan Dahl’s theory, the criteria’s of democracy will be presented. It is very important to really take matter of actions and emphasize which of the criteria’s that considers being fulfilled, and which considers not to be fulfilled.

    Key words: Botswana, South Africa, Robert Dahl, Democratic

    Swedish arms exports is a controversial topic. Sweden is one of the world's leading arms exporters. In connection to an investigation conducted by the Eko in 2012, which is a program of the Swedish Radio, Sweden's long arms negotiations with Saudi Arabia. This became a big debate, because Sweden isn't supposed to negotiate with non-democratic countries. The Swedish government decided to appoint a committe to study this subject and come up with stricter laws on arms exports. The purpose of this paper is to see which theory that dominates the committe investigation. it turns out that liberalism dominates the investigation, although even in small tensile characterized by realism. Liberalism is the theory which dominates them abandoned the proposals, the view of democracy as the consequences that a more restrictive regulation would entail.

    The debate concerning if United Kingdom should leave or stay in European Union is not entirely new. Due to political, economy and moral reasons have the debate been popular in the country. The purpose of this paper is to map the UK debate on the European Union. By using a Pro-Contrast analysis, this paper will also investigate arguments from Margaret Thatcher and David Cameron who have been prime minister for the country and party leader for the conservative party, Tories. Furthermore, the arguments will also be analyzed through theories of liberalism and realism. The debate for a European Union shows that arguments are based on liberalism and realism. The arguments also show that there here has been a change over two different times with two different political actors.

    Sverige i Nato?: En pro-contra analys av den svenska debatten om Nato-medlemskapet bland olika politiska aktörer2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The debate concerning if Sweden should move closer to NATO or even apply for membership is not entirely new. Due to Russia´s annexation of the Crimean peninsula in Ukraine in the spring of 2014, and due to Russians violations of national territory, Swedish political actors have discussed the NATO membership energetically. The purpose of this essay is to map out the Swedish debate about NATO membership. By applying a Pro-Contra analysis this essay will also examine arguments from the swedish parties, members of parliament, debaters, researchers and former Secretary of State. Furthermore, the arguments will also be analyzed through theories of realism and liberalism. The debate for a NATO membership shows that arguments are based on a combination of both realism and liberalism, although there are more arguments influenced by liberalism. The arguments against a NATO membership are mainly characterized by realism rather than liberalism.

    Kändisar i politiken: En jämförande analys av Sverige och Finlands användande av ”kändisar” i Europaparlamentsval2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The main purpose of this study is to examine celebrity candidates in the European Parliament election in Sweden and Finland. The theoretical background assumes that candidate voting is beneficial in the election to the European Parliament. Previous research also shows that there are some opponents towards candidate voting, claiming it personalizes politics and it might lead to celebrities getting elected simply because they are well known to the voters.

    This study is a comparative analysis and analyzes the differences between Sweden and Finland when it comes to celebrity candidates. Furthermore, Max Weber’s theory on leadership will be used to categorize the celebrity candidates further. Weber’s ”rational leader” and ”charismatic leader” can today be referred to as the competent politician and the celebrity. The identified celebrity candidates in Sweden and Finland will thus be categorized as whether they are also competent politicians. The result of the analysis shows that celebrity candidates are fairly common in Finland but barely exists in Sweden. However, not many of these candidates actually get elected; only one celebrity candidate from Sweden and four from Finland. All but one is considered to be both charismatic and competent. The conclusion is that celebrity candidates do not get elected based only on them being a celebrity. They also have to be considered competent leaders. However, being a charismatic and personal candidate is getting more and more important as politics are becoming more personalized, but simply being a celebrity will not get you a seat in the European Parliament.

    Tunisiens Demokratisering: En fallstudie om vägen mot ett demokratiskt samhälle2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay aims to examine how the democratization of Tunisia has taken place since the Arabic spring. It will also analyze how well the country qualifies as a consolidated democracy and what conflicts that have been the driving force of the democratization process. The essay is a qualitive case study and explores the years of 1987 to 2018. Moreover, it is supported by the democratization theory of Dankward A Rustow. The Arabic spring was a consequence of the high unemployment numbers, the poverty in the country and the discontent of the president’s approach of ruling. The road to the democracy has suffered from many difficulties due to influences of the previous authoritarian rule. The situation in Tunisia after the Arabic spring has been unstable and demonstrations in smaller scales has taken place. Today the country has free and fair elections regularly and 2014 a new constitution was introduced. However, people have not gained a better lifestyle from the democratization even though the democracy has flourished. Lastly, the Tunisian democracy is not yet consolidated and still needs to the implemented into the country’s laws and population.

    Könskvotering inom politiken: eftersträvansvärt eller inte?2015Student paper other, 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Today equal representation between the genders in parliament is something to be desired. One way to reach the goal of equal representation is by using quotas. The purpose of the study is to research the lack of equality in elected institutions by using a perspective on qoutas.  The study also seeks to find answers to if using quotas is a good method according to gender studies. A text analysis is being used to find reasonable solutions to the study´s presented complivations.  By analyzing different texts about quotas some of the more common arguments in the discussion about using quotas in parliaments were highlighted. Some of the more frequent arguments to implement quotas are that it would be more just but also that women and men may have different interests, experiences and therefore equal representation would be a question of resources. Another argument is that a parliament can only be seen as legitimate if it is equaled represented.  Opponents to political quotas often argue that it would be unfair to use quotas since the terms would be different for women and men.  Other frequently used arguments revolve around quotas being undemocratical. These arguments furthermore deem the competence of people to be of no importance and that no one wants to get the position through allocation by quotas. The study shows that according to gender studies, quotas are something to advocate. The reason is that today women have more barriers to representation in parliaments than men. When women and men are in different spheres the gender order can consist and therefore the structure of power will be the same. By using quotas to achieve equal representation the separation between the genders will also decrease and the structure can change.

    Krig och fred i ett nordiskt Cyberspace: En analys utav den säkerhetspolitiska utvecklingen angående cyberspace i fyra nordiska länder2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    There is an ongoing trend in which a growing number of states are becoming concerned with the security aspect of cyberspace. Several of these states have or are creating national cyber security strategies. This essay studied the political development concerning cyberspace in four Nordic countries by the use of a textual analysis constructed from three key ideas from the theories realism and liberalism. This was then applied to the three national cyber security strategies belonging to Finland, Denmark and Norway, as well as the newly published proposal for a Swedish national cyber security strategy. This was done to discern whether the political developments concerning cyber security that were expressed in these strategies could be explained by any of the two theories. The result shows that the two theories are more of a complement to the other in explaining these strategies.

    Ghana och Zambia: En fallstudie om institutioners roll för demokratisk utveckling2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    "A Case Study Regarding Ghana and Zambia’s Democratization".

    This study investigates why two African states have developed differently, regarding democratization. Ghana and Zambia are two countries, that in many ways had similar starting points. They both have a history as English colonies. They became independent reasonably at the same time and they began the process of democratization in the early 90s. Despite many similarities, Ghana has succeeded better than Zambia. This essay aims to examine whether the Institutional theory can explain why the two nations have developed in different directions regarding democracy. By examining the various criteria that researchers in institutional theory considers important for democratic conditions, the author hopes to find an answer to the question why some nations succeed, while others fail.

    This essay aims to put an institutional perspective on democratization. By describing and presenting a case study of the two chosen countries, the results show that institutions have a considerable role in a country’s development. Zambia’s problems can be explained by its lack of freedom of the press and violent demonstrations. Ghana’s success can be traced back to independence, where Ghana already had created a stable institutional base and centralized state. Ghana seems to have accepted pluralism and inclusive elements; more than Zambia have done. Overall, the results show that institutions can explain the differences regarding the two nations democratization-process. However, the importance of multiple elections, cannot be confirmed.

    Lika barn leka bäst?: Om Moderaternas och Liberalernas syn på skolan2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis aims to examine whether political parties have a tendency to change their profiles after having entered a political collaboration. This thesis is a comparative study between the Swedish parties Moderaterna and Liberalerna. The thesis is structured in such a way that three different time periods have been chosen, 1988 which is before the two parties entered a collaboration called Alliansen, 2006 when the parties entered a collaboration and 2014, after a long-term collaboration, the thesis has also been limited by only focusing on a political issue, school. The material being used is the two parties’ political programs revolving the three different time periods. And has a base in the cartel party theory to conduct an analysis of the situation. The result of the thesis is that both parties have in some ways changed their profiles over the time period, and that Liberalerna in some ways have adapted their profile to the political profile Alliansen has. However, it cannot be stated that these changes can be fully associated with the cartel party theory.

    Cartelization Versus Representation?: On A Misconception in Contemporary Party Theory2017In: Party Politics, ISSN 1354-0688, E-ISSN 1460-3683, Vol. 23, no 2, p. 124-134Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    According to a popular but controversial view in contemporary party research, political parties increasingly put a premium on governing within the institutions of the state rather than on representation of interests and identities in society. This critique has been phrased most uncompromisingly in Richard Katz and Peter Mair’s theory of the cartel party, according to which the cartel party governs but does not represent, and thus fails to do what we expect of parties in a modern democracy. This article is an analysis and critique of this presupposition, which has largely escaped the attention of commentators. The idea that the cartel party governs but does not represent rests on an untenable view of political representation. As I argue, the normative problem with the cartel party is not so much that this type of party does not represent, as to decide when and how it does or does not represent.

    Fear as a Political Factor2017In: International Political Sociology, ISSN 1749-5679, E-ISSN 1749-5687, Vol. 11, no 1, p. 55-72Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In past decades, social and cultural theory as well as international relations theory and political theory have been preoccupied with the subject of fear. In this article, I return the conversation about fear as a political factor to what may be the oldest subject in the book: the connection between fear and political authority. Today, I suggest, we are in the midst of a shift in our understanding of this relationship, prompted not least by efforts to come to terms, analytically and politically, with the challenges of climate change. The article seeks to get a clearer view of this shift by identifying and analyzing three distinct stories in academic and public discourse about fear and political authority. By way of conclusion, I venture that these mutations in our ways of thinking, speaking, and feeling about political authority and fear point toward a model of political authority for post-sovereign conditions.

    Governance: The Art of Governing after Governmentality2014In: European Journal of Social Theory, ISSN 1368-4310, E-ISSN 1461-7137, Vol. 17, no 1, p. 60-76Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As Michel Foucault and others have shown, from the seventeenth through the twentieth centuries, Western political discourse has perpetuated an art of governing aimed at societies and populations. This article argues that this modern art of governing is now coming undone, in the name of governance. The discourse on governance is taking us from an art of governing premised on producing policy for a society or a population to an art of governing premised on solving problems with no necessary reference to any kind of society or population. Tracing the evolution of that discourse, the article argues that existing social and political theory has failed to make sense of this shift. It concludes that in order to access and assess the new art of governing on its own terms we need a sociological imagination that stretches beyond societies and a political imaginary without the presupposition of collectivities.

    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.

    The Concept of Authority Transnationalised2014In: Transnational Legal Theory, ISSN 2041-4005, Vol. 4, no 3, p. 336-353Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article asks what happens to our understanding of the global and of ourselves as political and legal subjects when the concept of authority travels from a national to a transnational context. The article argues that the concept of authority has been able to travel in this fashion by way of figures of speech and thought drawn from the national context. It is also argued that in order to fully understand this process, we need to remind ourselves of connotations that the concept of authority carried prior to its uptake in the national context. The article concludes that whereas the concept of authority today allows us to think, speak and act as if we are still, in the transnational context, political and legal subjects in the same sense as in the modern nation-state, this usage may gloss over normatively consequential differences between these contexts as to the nature of authority.

    The Return of the Repressed: Populism and Democracy Revisited2019In: American Journal of Cultural Sociology, ISSN 2049-7113, E-ISSN 2049-7121, p. 1-17Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article revisits the vexed relationship between populism and democracy. The article identifies and analyzes a persistent split in the discourse of democracy between the politically fit and unfit, and argues that populism is best seen as effecting a reversal of this ancient binary. Using analytical tools from the strong program in cultural sociology, this binary is theorized as a symbolic code organizing our sense of and sensibilities for the sacred and the profane in democracy, a symbolic code that political science research on populism tends to reproduce rather than explicate. Pursuing this, the article outlines a cultural explanation of populism as well as of shortcomings and blind spots in the latest wave of research on the subject. It argues by example the need to cross over between political, social, and cultural theory in order to better understand populism and democracy and their contentious interrelationship.

    Cartelisation, Convergence or Increasing Similarities?: Lessons from Parties in Parliament2018Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    It is often suggested that political parties are becoming increasingly alike, and that party politics has turned into an elite affair where political professionals collude to further their self-interest rather than work to represent the interests of their constituents. In recent decades this diagnosis has been famously associated with Richard Katz and Peter Mair’s cartel party theory. Yet so far this controversial thesis has not been subjected to systematic empirical scrutiny, nor has its conceptual and normative underpinnings been properly considered. In this volume a group of political scientists with different specialisations take on this task, focusing empirically on the Swedish party system, which the originators of the cartel party theory have suggested is especially conducive to the formation of party cartels. Collecting new and unique qualitative and quantitative data, the volume casts serious doubt on the validity of the cartel party theory as an explanation for party system change.

    Abstract [en]

    Due to the events of the fall of 2015 and the start of the refugee crises, Sweden made efforts through different political proposals to stop the flow of people entering the country.

     

    This paper investigates how two of the actions taken by the Swedish government harmonizes with the national and international laws regarding refugees and asylum.

     

    This paper shows that there are several laws making it possible to take whatever actions are appropriate during times of overburden asylum systems which is up to each state themselves to decide. The paper also shows that serious lack of consideration is taken to the situation of children and some groups of people lack their decided right to reunite with their families.

    Den kritiska Messengergenerationen: En studie om politiska diskussioner i sociala medier samt skolans roll i att forma kritiskt tänkande individer2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the study is to explore how social media can be used as a forum to discuss politics and also how young people use critical reflection to evaluate the information available on social media. To achieve the purpose, a qualitative research is used. The empirical data is collected through semi-structured interviews with six high school students who voted in the Swedish parliamentary elections in/of 2014. The empirical data were then analyzed based on previous research on social media, and the school's mission to foster individuals who think critically. The analysis is also based on the theory of deliberative democracy model. The study shows that social media can be used as a platform for political discussions but it is in a large extent characterized by mudslinging between the sides for and against the various political elements. The survey also shows that the interviewed students do not understand the implications of source criticism. Instead they use critical thinking to determine what is a good or a bad source. The study shows that the deliberative democracy model cannot be applied to social media in its present form, but should be seen as an ideal image of how a deliberative democracy should work.

    Demokratins tjänare eller medielogikens lakejer?: En studie av fyra tidningars gestaltning av politik i samband med riksdagsvalet 2014.2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    From a democratic viewpoint, the way in which the media frames politics is essential. Should issue frames be left out in favor of other types of frames, it could result in voters struggling to make informed decisions come Election Day. What is more, research shows that game frames may cause lack of confidence in politicians and declining political interest. Against this background, the present study aimed to find out how two broadsheets, Dagens Nyheter and Svenska Dagbladet, and two tabloids, Aftonbladet and Expressen, framed politics in connection with the 2014 Swedish parliamentary elections. The thesis also intended to identify possible differences between the two newspaper types and to make tentative comparisons with previous studies so as to be able to comment on framing developments. The method that was used is content analysis. More specifically, the thesis examined the existence of a number of frame types in selected articles. A total of 235 articles were analyzed, 62 in Dagens Nyheter, 46 in Svenska Dagbladet, 52 in Aftonbladet and 75 in Expressen. The results of the study are rather depressing. Considering the average numbers for all four newspapers, the issue frames amount to only about a fourth or a fifth of all frames. In addition, the issue frame percentage seems to decline with each election. However, there are substantial differences between the broadsheets and the tabloids. As in the vast majority of previous studies, the broadsheets contain a much larger share of issue frames that the tabloids. Thus, the former satisfy the needs of democracy to a larger extent than the latter. Further studies are, however, of the essence to confirm the results that are presented in this thesis. It is very important, for the sake of democracy, to continue investigating the media’s framing of politics, as well as framing effects.

    Religiositet och tolerans: En statistisk studie om vilken roll människors religiösa tro har för att motverka eller främja tolerans för invandrare och sexuella minoriteter2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this paper is to investigate whether religion has a positive or negative impact on tolerance towards people with different ethnic backgrounds and people with different sexual orientation, or if this is a product of other phenomena in society like general trust, left-right placement, gender and so on. The main intention is to explore if, and in that case to what extent, religious people in Europe tend to be more or less xenophobic or homophobic than their unreligious, or secularized, counterparts. To live up to this aim, the study is based on regression analyses which utilize data from the European Social Survey. The findings show that religious people generally tend to be more intolerant towards immigrants and homosexuals than nonreligious people, but that this effect also differs between countries. For example, whereas the negative effect can be found in most European contries, the correlation is reversed in countries like Sweden and Czech Republic, meaning that a higher level of religiosity makes people more tolerant towards these particular contexts.

    -Svensk bonde- utrotningshotad?: Vad händer om Sverige slutar producera mjölk och kött? En konsekvensanalys över svensk lantbrukssituation2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Vad händer om Sverige drastiskt minskar sin produktion av lamm, nöt, fläsk och mjölk? Konsekvensanalysen är tydlig -ett förändrat landskap, färre jobbtillfällen och minskad valfrihet för konsumenten. Dessutom minskar chansen att styra branschen mot en snällare produktion, dels för miljön men också för konsumenten. Ökad antibiotikaanvändning, övergödning på åkrar och sämre djurskydd är exempel på konsekvenser som svenska lantbrukare idag motarbetar men som riskerar att öka vid en minskad svensk produktion. 

    Metoden som har använts i uppsaten är en samhällsekonomisk konsekvensanalys, densamma som Naturvårdsverket använder vid analyser av samma typ.

    Syftet med denna uppsats är att belysa de effekter som en minskad kött och mjölkproduktion skulle  få för Sverige. Genom att titta tillbaka på utvecklingen de senaste årtiondet så kan man utläsa en trend, ökad import och minskad självförsörjning av kött och mjölk. Genom att belysa de effekter som skulle uppstå om trenden fortsätter, visar uppsatsen på en framtid som vi skulle gå till mötes om en förändring inte sker. 

    Den frågeställning som uppsatsen syftar till att besvara är följande; Vilka effekter kan man förvänta sig om den trend med minskad självförsörjning inom mjölk och köttproduktionen består i framtiden?

    The development of our society has in many ways changed the relationships between the political parties and the citizens. Fewer citizens are active in political parties, which has contributed to the fact that we see a form of catch-all effect and a development of parties that organizes more in forms of professional organisations. This paper has made a research of modells of democratic ideals and values between leaders and party-members in political parties in the local area. The purpose has been to show how these ideals and values can reflect back on the political development. The result shows that the development has created a form of catch-all effect and a professionalism in the parties. The parties has a desire to recruit more members but have at the same time difficulties to invite to partcipation and shows a lack of including enviroment. The result shows that interaction and an inclunding environment is key terms to recruit and keep members, but it also shows that the effects of participation depends on the internal structures of the democratic processes in the parties. The problem with a weak intra-party democracy is that it hastens the weakening of bond between the political parties and the society. The result indicates that values disappear when political parties can be less described as a social movement. This suggests that words like intra-democracy, party-members and civil society are terms that are becoming less and less used in the political environment of today.

    Sverigedemokraterna: - Den putsade fasaden2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Sammanfattning

     

    Sverigedemokraterna städar upp i sitt parti. Jimmie Åkesson vill inte kännas vid partiets främlingsfientliga stämpel och hävdar sig vilja ha nolltolerans mot rasism och extremism. Att man putsat partiets fasad verkar ha varit framgångsrikt då man hösten 2012 uppmättes till Sveriges tredje parti i opinionsmätningar. Fasaden sprack dock senare samma höst då tre stycken högt uppsatta Sverigedemokrater avslöjades på film genom en händelse där de fällt sexistiska och rasistiska kommenterar. Detta ledde till konsekvenser för de berörda partimedlemmarna. Partiet visar upp två motstridiga sidor. En där partiet är ett etablerat riksdagsparti och en sida som visar att man agerar utifrån främlingsfientliga åsikter.

    Denna uppsats har studerat skillnader mellan hur partiet presenterar sig själva i det offentliga rummet och hur partiet presenterar sig själva i den mer privata sfären. Detta har genomförts genom studier av Sverigedemokraternas mer privata blogginlägg samt av deras officiellt publicerade material i form utav partiets principprogram. Resultatet visade att det finns skillnader i hur Sverigedemokraterna argumenterar i den mer privata sfären genom blogginlägg, och i den mer offentliga sfären genom deras officiella material. I blogginläggen ville man väcka negativa känslor för invandrare och invandring hos mottagaren, medan man i det officiella materialet vädjade till mottagarens förnuft, intellekt och rationella tänkande. Detta medför att en person som enbart läser Sverigedemokraternas bloggar får en annan bild av partiet än en person som enbart läser det officiellt publicerade materialet.

    Inträdet i det offentliga rummet tvingade partiet att förändra sin argumentation och tvätta sina argument. Positionen ställde nya krav på partiet gällande argumentation och trovärdighet för att kunna fortsätta vara ett etablerat riksdagsparti. Alla politiska aktörer i partiet har inte hängt med i denna förändring eller kunnat hålla sig strikt till hur man agerar i offentligheten, vilket gör att fasaden ibland rämnar.
