    “La formation en Relations Internationales en Périphérie: Une «tropicalisation » des perspectives de la métropole? Le cas de certains programmes de formation en RI au Mexique”2010Inngår i: La Perspective en Relations internationales / [ed] Hélène Pellerin, Outremont, Québec: Athéna éditions , 2010, s. 89-108Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter tries to explore the conditions in which such a discipline as International Relations in studied from the periphery taking Mexico as a case-study. Given the fact that Mexico has a very special relationship to the US, can we expect any special perspectives or contributions to the theorization of IR among Mexico’s specialists in the area? Which perspectives are Mexican IR specialists giving their students, which major schools of thought are privileged in the teaching of new generations of IR students? Which are the historical determinants or geo-political constraints of such ways to approach IR? This study tries to examine the case of two elite teaching programs with the discipline of IR in Mexico in order to give an answer to these questions.

    Labour organizing among women workers linked to globalization: the case of El Salvador2010Inngår i: Mujeres en el Mundo: Multiculturalismo, violencia, trabajo,literatura y movimientos sociales / [ed] Yamile Delgado de Smith, María Cristina González, Valencia, Venezuela: Universidad de Carabobo , 2010, s. 201-218Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Women’s organizing, both at the local and global level has been one of the new social movement phenomena in which the role of human agency to resist global restructuring is most significant.  However, such resistance strategies are particularly difficult when the challenge is not only confronting economic globalization as such but also part of the comrades in arms in such confrontation, that is trade unions that as such embody part of this resistance to transnational capital. The entanglement of the identities of class and gender is not unproblematic but it also opens new possibilities for example in the way of the creation of alternative labour organizations rejecting the traditions of authoritarianism and patriarchal hierarchies plaguing classical trade unions. The aim of this article is to show one such example of labour organizing among women workers within maquiladora (assembling factories-outsourcing) industries, the case of San Marcos in El Salvador. As it is well known, these industries have traditionally, in the first phases of their establishment and specially within textile manufacture, recruited mostly female workers, that is to say cheap labour. The story of their exploitation is quite well known, what is less well know is their organizing experiences, and these are quite varied. Taking as point of departure the example of El Salvador I want to illustrate how these women have been able to overcome many difficulties and sometimes form their own trade unions in alliance with NGOs. I will try to present their strategies and challenges as well as their potential for the near future. Thus, one can perhaps delineate the different factors that make this organizing possible, the importance of the local context vis a vis the international and the possibilities and limits of this kind of local resistance to the conditions imposed by globalization.

    Mujer, sindicatos y apoyos transnacionales: diversas expereincias en el caso de México2010Inngår i: Serie HAINA, ISSN 1403-3933, Vol. VII, s. 157-170Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents the case study of the Red de Mujeres Sindicalistas. RMSM (The Mexican Trade Union women's network) a network of female trade union activists who is trying to open a space for gender perspectives within several trade union movements in Mexico. Even though this network exemplifies one of the victories of trade union women in Mexico the article shows the many obstacle they still have to confront in order to make their rights recognized and respected. This case study also exemplifies the intersection of class en gender with transnational activism. The latter has helped the RMSM in a significat way to gain a certain independence from their organizations. This study is the result of several interviews with representatives of the network and their sister organization in the South of Mexico.

    Women Workers in the Maquiladoras and the Debate on Global Labor Standards2010Inngår i: Feminist Economics, ISSN 1354-5101, Vol. 16, nr 4, s. 185-209Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper represents a collective contribution to an ongoing debate on the benefits and disadvantages of  export-based industry jobs  for women as well as on the implications  of  global labor standards for these type of jobs. On the basis of extensive research on women in Mexico’s and Central America’s maquiladoras, this paper aims to problematize the viewpoints that present  export-based industry jobs as dignified alternatives for women in the South and to question the  scepticism around  global labor standards as a possible alternative for improving work conditions in all sectors producing for export. In so doing, the paper stresses three interrelated issues: a) the relevance of local and regional contexts that inform diverse industrialization paths over time, b) the agency the women workers represent and c) the legal instruments already existent in our common strive for solutions towards the aim of dignified jobs.

    Vad är det på tv ikväll?: En kvalitativ studie om svenska gymnasieelevers användning av och attityd till tv-mediet2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

     

    Authors:                           Emmy Davidsson and Fredrik Doohan Pehrman

    Title:                                  What’s on TV tonight?

    Swedish title:                  Vad är det på tv ikväll?

    Level:                                BA Thesis in Media and Communication Studies

    Language:                                             Swedish

    Number of pages:          53

     

    Aim:

    The purpose of this study is to chart and explain Swedish high school students’ TV viewing and their attitude towards the TV medium. The aim is also to discuss the students’ views on news and citizenship. The purpose is also to, through the term habitus, explore how the background of a person reflects on their choice of TV content, in what way they watch television and on their purpose of TV viewing. What similarities and differences can we discover in different groups’ TV viewing and attitude towards the TV medium and how can these similarities and differences be explained?

    Method:

    The used method is a qualitative method of investigation, divided in three parts. The first part is a TV diary, in which the respondents document different aspects of their TV viewing during a week. The second part of the method is focus groups and the last part is a survey concerning the background environment of the respondents.

     

    Main result:

    In our study we have determined that Swedish high school students still, in some aspects, watch television in a traditional manner. They mainly watch entertaining content, but the varieties of entertainment vary depending on habitus, especially gender. We have also discovered that TV viewing is fragmented, but also formalized depending on which level; general, group or individual level, we choose to study. The main aspect of habitus that influence the behavior concerning TV viewing is gender, but also other aspects of habitus, for example education and place to live. We have studied a rather homogenous group of students, which result in differences in attitude towards the TV medium, mostly based on gender. However, we have also discovered subtleties in attitude between the different groups of respondents depending on lifestyle and taste. The results concerning TV use and attitude towards television can not alone determine if Swedish high school students are enlightened members of society or not. However, through habitus and the influence of parenthood and schooling, the students gain opportunities to create habits and a behavior surrounding news consumption that will make them take their social responsibility later in life.

    Från husmor till yrkeskvinna: En kvalitativ analys av moderskap i magasinen Husmodern och Mama.2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Our purpose with the study was to investigate how the image of a mother’s role is created by the magazines Mama and Husmodern. Mama is an existing magazine, but Husmodern ceased to exist in 1988. Both magazines focus on children, fashion and housework. We wanted to know what qualities you need to become a good or a bad mother. Also who is allowed to give advices on motherhood? We compared the magazines to find out how the mother´s role has changed over time. For that we used six issues of Mama from the year 2011, and six issues of Husmodern from the years between 1941 and 1959.

    The result of the research shows that mothers, now as well as in the 1940-1950's, are expected to put their children first. Nowadays, in Mama’s context, she is also expected to work. It is no longer socially acceptable to live as a housewife, which was the ideal in the magazine Husmodern. The result also shows that mothers, according to Mama, are in a constant state of stress. The magazine tries to offer them solutions for their stress-related problems. Husmodern on the other hand, puts a greater emphasis on moral, and offers the readers their moral values.

    Security Sector Reform: Structural Reform of the Police force in Bosnia and Herzegovina2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This bachelor thesis is the result of a minor field study which took place in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). The purpose of this bachelor thesis is to contribute to the understanding and improvement of Security Sector Reform (SSR), which could be explained as a process of reformation applied in post-conflict scenarios aimed at the military, police and/or judicial sector which might be an element of insecurity, particularly the police, and very particularly in post conflict scenarios where conflict resolution resulted in a divided police force, by using the BiH as a case study. We have used the theoretical framework/process of SSR and more specifically the part of SSR which touches upon police reform. However, SSR entails reformation of the security sector including military-, police- and judicial sectors, as mentioned our focus will be the police sector. This serving as a foundation for the thesis, we asked the following questions; Taking the point of departure in the Dayton Accords and its complex power sharing structure, which are the underlying factors/reasons why the Security Sector Reformation of the police force has been so problematic and why is there such inability to reach an agreement on this issue, especially in terms of structure? In terms of methodology, this is a qualitative study based on semi-structured interviews in combination with previous research. Concluding remarks, progress has been made, however, the reformation of the police is to a large extent dependent on the political will not to do so, not much indicate a change related to this. The status of the BiH police force continues to be de-centralized in terms of structure due to the Dayton Accords which has still serves a fertile ground for the continuation of inefficiency, especially in terms of cooperation, information exchange, administrative issues, war-criminals within the police etc related to the different police forces.

    Den (gammal)modiga kommunen: En semiotisk analys av tre kommuners hemsidor2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Diskussionen om att kommuner ser på sina medborgare mer som kunder än som invånare har blivit allt mer vanlig. Den här uppsatsen behandlar hur en kommun använder sig av språket, genom texter på hemsidan och det är en komperativ studie på Jönköping, Kalmar och Växjö kommun. Det kan uppstå en viss problematik om en kommun använder sig av ett mer kommersiellt språkval, det här problemet diskuteras i slutdiskussionen. En dokumentanalys har genomförts för att få en djupare förståelse av kommunernas val av tilltal och målgrupper. Den semiotiska analysen används för att beskriva kommunernas tilltalssätt på sina hemsidor i texter, där vi analyser vissa valda texter på hemsidorna.

    FN:s Milleniemål och deras påverkan på den svenska biståndspolitiken2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this thesis is to study to what extent the UN millennium development goals have influenced Sweden’s development policy. The research method that I have used is a qualitative text analysis and I have studied the ideas in governmental texts and millennium development goals reports from 1995-2008.My hypothesis is that the basic ideas that has symbolized Sweden’s development policy has not changed much since the adoption of the millennium development goals in year 2000. This hypothesis is based on different ideas that the basic perspectives in international development policy are rather constant.My conclusion is that many of the areas that are affected by the millennium development goals already are prioritized areas within Swedish development policy, for example poverty reduction and gender equality. Therefore are these areas not influenced so much by the millennium development goals. A slightly stronger focus on international co-operation and sustainable development can be seen in the more recent material, where it’s possible that the millennium development goals have had some impact of this.

    Fattar du vad de säger?: En begriplighetsanalytisk jämförelse mellan Ekot och P3 Nyheter2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    In this study we compare Ekot with P3 Nyheter with a comprehension analytical perspective. The more traditional radio news program Ekot differs from the younger P3 Nyheter in a lot of aspects. One of them is that P3 Nyheter’s primary target group is young people between the ages of 20 to 34. Because of this, P3 Nyheter aim to make their news as adjusted to their young audience as possible. We wondered whether this adaption to please their audience had impact on the comprehension, and wanted to compare P3 Nyheter with Ekot, who does not have a targeted audience but aim to make themselves comprehensible to as many as possible. However, the comprehension analysis was insufficient to us, and we decided to analyze our transcribed newscasts using text analysis as well in order to be able to analyze concepts that the comprehension analysis does not cover, but that we thought was important in our study. We also interviewed representatives from Ekot and P3 Nyheter, to see how they saw their mission and target audience.

                          Our study shows that the different news programs practically had the same level of potential comprehension. They had different comprehension obstacles, but neither was better than the other. Thus, the comprehension did not improve despite P3 Nyheter’s adaption to their target group. However, the comprehension did not decline due to the adaption either. P3 Nyheter give their audience so called “infotainment” in a higher degree than Ekot by choosing news items that are closer to entertainment than information. Ekot on the other hand often presents a greater number of news in their newscasts, but rarely illustrate with sounds. The two programs also differ greatly in their vocabulary.

    Collective Political Violence in the North Caucasus: Chechen Conflict and Insurgency Analysis2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 15 poäng / 22,5 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This Bachelor thesis is a study of collective political violence in the context of the Chechen conflict which continues to this present day. The information gathered and analysed as well as the frameworks used in the analysis are taken from numerous academic texts written on the subjects of Chechnya, Terrorism and theories on conflict and conflict resolution.

    The Chechen conflict is a decade long intra-state conflict which has its roots in a separatist movement for secession following the breakup of the Soviet Union. The dynamics of the conflict has evolved throughout the years, maintaining many of its fundamental elements whilst at the same time transforming as new actors and dimensions emerge.

    Following an abductive approach, the analytical frameworks of John Burton and Ted Gurr as well as a theoretical perspective derived from Bruce Hoffman’s understanding of terrorism, have been used to recontextualise to information gathered through the selected academic texts relevant to the conflict. The aim of this recontextualisation is to attempt to identify hidden mechanisms that could be responsible for the occurrence of collective political violence in the context of Chechnya.

    Numerous deprivations of the Chechen people’s basic human needs can potentially lead to frustration being perceived through a sense of shared group interest identity. Elites can then use this identity to mobilize the discontented masses in order to obtain political power for themselves whilst achieving the goals of the group they claim to represent. Russia’s Counterterrorism strategy does not seek to address these grievances and therefore violence is likely to continue to occur.

    Roma discrimination in Europe: an investigation using the analytical framework of Zygmunt Bauman2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates the discriminatory situation of Romas in contemporary Europe with the use of Zygmunt Bauman’s analytical framework he developed on the situation of Jews and the Holocaust. Characteristics of the Modern Society have, according to Bauman, created opportunities for cornerstones of discrimination to occur and together with facilitators they can hold the discrimination alive and make it long lasting. In the case Bauman examined, it all ended in genocide. With the aim to investigate how Bauman’s analytical framework would explain why Roma discrimination could continue and by using a qualitative method of text substance analysis of foremost academic articles, the situation of the Romas are presented in a code according to the concepts in a scheme of Bauman’s analytical framework. There is no genocide going on today against Romas, but when looking through the glasses of Bauman and implementing his analytical framework on the Roma situation, only one stone is missing for it to happen. This paper concludes that there are no reasons to deny that a new Holocaust can happen in the modern society of Europe, but this time with another minority group as victims. Racism seems to be there, the only missing element is a stronger belief in racial hierarchy. This paper also offers an analytical scheme for future studies on other groups that have been suffering of long lasting discrimination, to further emphasize how Bauman’s framework would be able to become generalized on discrimination.

    EMU till varje pris?: Spårbundenhet i beslutsfattandet angående EMU2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    In 2002, the euro as a common currency did replace the national currencies in the EU member-states that did choose to take part in the EMU. It was then viewed as one of the greatest accomplishments ever to be made by the EU. However, during the latest years, the economic situation has deteriorated in several EMU member-states. This affected the whole euro-area and the current situation is referred upon as the euro-crisis. In 2011, at the time of the euro-crisis, the Heads of State or Government of the euro-area did reaffirm their full commitment to strengthen EMU. This essay seeks to answer why the EMU is maintained despite severe economical difficulties. The purpose of this essay is to reveal that path dependence is seen in the EU decision-making about the EMU. To fulfill the purpose the method used is process-tracing. To study the EU decision-making this essay applies the theoretical framework provided by Allison and Zelikow. This theoretical framework studies decision-making from three different vantage points. The findings of this essay reveal that in each vantage point an institution can be found that shape behavior and results in path dependence.

    Abstract [sv]

     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.

    Enrolling Local Strategic Actors in Public Portal Development2011Inngår i: 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, s. 247-258Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    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.

    Sverigedemokraternas framgångar i kommunalvalen 2006 och 20102013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This essay examines the recent electoral success of the Sweden Democrats (SD) in the Swedish municipal election in 2006 and 2010. By using statistical methods it aims to explain which of three contradicting theoretical frameworks best can explain how a populist radical right party could penetrate one of the most stable party systems in the world. The theoretical approaches tested in this essay are: a demand-side, an external supply-side and an internal supply-side approach. By using theoretically anchored proxies to determine the effect of the contradicting theoretical approaches this essay concludes that the internal supply-side explanation measuring the local party organizational ability of the SD had the most substantial effect when it comes to explaining their recent electoral success in the Swedish municipalities, as opposed to a more commonly believed demand-side driven explanation.

    På väg mot en könlös träningsverklighet: En kvalitativ studie om i vilka sammanhang män och kvinnor framställs i tränings- och hälsomagasin2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Our study concerns the topic of gender in the training magazines. How and in what context men and women occur in the selected articles. The purpose with this study was to identify the stereotypes and ideal images that are conveyed through magazine-interviews with men and women. We consider this study important, since exercise, sex roles, and looks are closely associated with certain images in society. We chose to analyze this issue by selecting five magazines that focus on training, and then choosing ten articles and four pictures from the different magazines. Primarily the analysis is based on interviews with men and women from the magazines. And to reach our result we worked with methods Critical Discoure Analysis and image analysis. All this, to cover more of the context where the article was in.

    We have during our time of work used earlier research about the topic and theoretical concepts first and foremost from, Anja Hirdman, Thomas Johansson and Colette Dowling.

    We have come to the conclusion that our Swedish training society is well on its way to becoming more equal. The traditional stereotypes like the women who workout in group to look better and men at the gym who pump muscles are beginning to fade. Independent women who take the lead and men that exercise in group just to feel better are on the move.

    Knallskott. Böter. Förlust 3-0.: En bildanalys av medierapporteringen efter läktarincidenten i fotbollsmatchen mellan Syrianska och AIK 2011.2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    In the 2011th Swedish football league three games were suspended because ofbangers that exploded on the terraces. The first suspended match was played by Syrianska and AIK. We have performed an image analysis of two of Sweden’s biggest newspapers, Aftonbladet and Dagens Nyheter, to see how they reported fromthat incident. The reports from the first incident are important because the mediareporting from the first incident might have determined the attitude of the press and the Swedish football association (SvFF) towards the supporters for the remainder of the season. We have analyzed all the articles with photographs in these newspapers sports section the first, the second and the third day after the incident. We have usedimage analysis as the method for our work, which include analyzing the context likethe title of the articles, opening paragraph and the image text. We found that the reporting from this incident was very similar to what socialscientist Johan Galtung refers as war journalism. The reports were not trying to find solutions instead it intended to point fingers at the persons who they thought was guilty of the incident - sheep goats. It also focused on the conflict and the fight. The reports from the incident were dramatic, and especially in Aftonbladet, which dramatized it with big headlines in capital letters. In both newspapers the supporters were marginalized. Not a single supporter was interviewed in Aftonbladet or DagensNyheter.

    Our conclusion is that there is a tendency in sports journalism where metaphors andidentities which emphasize conflict and violence return more frequently.

    Barnfattigdom i Sverige, finns den?: En studie om Socialdemokraternas och Moderaternas välfärdspolitik mot den svenska fattigdomen sedan 1960-talet2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This essay is regarding the problematic facts about child poverty in Sweden. Since the beginning of the new millennium child poverty has increased, in Sweden. The last report which came out in the spring this year (2012) opened up for a lively political debate as well as big headlines in news papers and other media. The attention it got in Society became hard for the politicians to avoid. The Swedish section of Save the Children, demanded in their report concerning child poverty in Sweden that the Swedish Government need to do an inquiry about the increasing child poverty. 

     

    Today in Sweden, there are two big parties, and they have been the biggest for a long time now. The two are Socialdemokraterna and Moderata Samlingspartiet. The first mentioned one is representing a socialist policy whilst the second one is representing a right-wing party. This study will deal with whether the parties have changed over time or not. The big question will be whether they have changed their opinions and positions since the beginning of 1960. This year is chosen in particular because it was during this period the largest development of the welfare state of Sweden started. It will be about if the parties changed according to, in particular poverty in Sweden. There are two main questions that I intend to answer throughout the text, to finally analyze the questions in the last part of this essay.

    Payment for Environmental Services - A tool for forest conservation and empowerment of the local people in the State of Amazonas, Brazil?: A case study of Programa Bolsa Floresta2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is a result of a research conducted during three months in four State Protected Conservation Units in the State of Amazonas in Brazil. The world‟s largest PES-program - Programa Bolsa Floresta, will serve as case study. The aim of the study is to identify the socio-environmental conditions under which the program is implemented and, to study if the program architecture is in coherence with the livelihood needs of the target group-, and the needs to protect the rain forest. The target group of the program are the river dwellers, “ribeirinhos”, living in extremely isolated areas being excluded from the public safety net of the Brazilian Government.A basic understanding of the livelihood situation was achieved through the use of systematic collection of empirical data. A combination of qualitative semi-structured interviews, quantitative literature reviews and triangulation of data compose the methodological base of the study. The holistic and human centered theoretical framework of Carney‟s Sustainable Livelihood Approach (SLA) laid the theoretical base of the study.Based upon the baseline study made over the local conditions and the context description this study recognizes that the programs architecture is coherent with the most basic needs of the ribeirinhos as well as the need to protect the forest. Due to the programs few years in execution it is hard to determine long-term impacts of the program at this stage. However, even being in an early stage, the program seems to be a potential key mechanism to build the foundation for future sustainable development in the region. The object of the program is to put value on the Environmental Services (ES) provided by the locals and by doing so, compensate them for their loss of capital. The program is designed holistically, i.e. its components include all five capital assets of the SLA framework. The payments given as compensations aim to advocate participatory, social organizational, educative, and self-reliance promoting methods, such as incentives to an alternative income, construction of schools, improved infrastructure, investments in water filters, means for communication, health programs in schools and ambulance boats.

    Environmental Education in Rural Development: A Case Study in Mecubúri District, Mozambique2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This masters’ thesis is a result of research conducted during three weeks in Mecubúri District, located in northern Mozambique. The study aims to explore environmental challenges and the environmental education in Mecubúri area. It strives to understand how rural farmers are able to use environmental education as a measure to act upon the environmental challenges in the area as well as to strengthen their livelihood assets. The target group of the study is the people living in Mecubúri.A basic understanding of environmental education and the socio-economic situation in Mecubúri was achieved by a systematic collection of empirical data through the use of a methodological approach called Participatory Rural Appraisal. Ethnographic methods such as participatory observation and semi-structured interviews built the base for the qualitative primary data collection and the secondary data was collected through literature reviews. The holistic and human centred theoretical framework Sustainable Livelihood Approach (SLA) laid the analytical base of the study.The most prominent environmental concerns identified by the inhabitants were agricultural issues, uncontrolled bushfires, changes in rainfall and the increased prevalence of strong winds and cyclones as well as sanitation and hygiene. Education was transmitted through both formal and informal communication channels, whereby conservation farming, education related to sanitation and hygiene as well as various educational channels were identified as the most important factors for the rural people in Mecubúri.As a concluding remark, it is argued that the society has a strong social capital which is effectively being used in environmental education. In contrast, an increased effort from the governmental level is advocated whereby a focus on conservation farming is recommended.

    Professionsöverskridande Samverkan: En studie om gränsöverskridande arbete kring barnfattigdom i en Svensk kommun2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Child poverty in Sweden is a widespread phenomenon and occurs in diverse spheres in society; at home, in school and in leisure activities. Therefore more professions than just traditional social workers meet this phenomenon in varied areas which creates different comprehensions and abilities to handle the issue among various professions.

    This study aims to investigate the collaboration between different professions in relation to child poverty in a municipality in Sweden. Represented professions are social workers, teachers, welfare officer, recreation instructor and leaders, special assistant and municipality coordinator. In total eleven persons were interviewed.

    The results illustrate a good will among the professions to collaborate to improve negative consequences of child poverty. Traditional boundaries between professions are limited since every profession is needed in this collaboration and have the opportunity to use their professional knowledge in a certain field. Professions with most experience and knowledge in social work are those who meet the child in least extent, while those with little knowledge in this field meet them to a greater extent.

    En enfärgad regnbåge: Hur den homosexuella normen formas i HBT-magasinet QX2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The HBTQ-society is not a homogeneous group; it contains a range of different sub-groups. QX is Sweden’s biggest magazine aimed at members of the HBTQ-society. The purpose of this study is to analyze if the magazine is more directed towards gay men or women – both by examining how many men versus women appear in QX, but also by looking at the different ways in which the articles are more relevant to either men or women, such as by tone, language or choice of subjects.

    In this study, we have analyzed twelve issues of QX, from January 2012 to December 2012, in order to get the most current results as possible. We used a quantitative content analysis when examining the division of men and women, and a qualitative analysis to investigate the direction towards each gender in the texts. Identification and power have been significant theories with which to analyse the results. The study clearly shows that QX is more aimed towards homosexual men rather than women, despite its claim to be gender neutral. During 2012, 66 % men and 34 % women appeared in QX. It was also discovered that more articles were aimed at gay men rather than women. The results support the theory that lesbian women could feel excluded from the HBTQ-society by reading QX. Since role models are crucial in the process of identification – and gay women access less of them than gay men – lesbians have a disadvantage in finding representation and identification in QX, which is unequal and therefore a problem.

    Abstract [en]

    The essay studies Romania and the Roma in the country as a minority from an Europeanization perspective.

    The aim of the essay is to study EU´s impact on Romania in general through Europeanization and to illustrate this Europeanization by studying the situation of the Roma in particular.

    The paper focuses on Romania´s Europeanization process and the Roma as a minority. It looks at how these mechanisms have affected Romania´s efforts to prohibit discrimination and to promote Roma´s rights.

    Heather Grabbes´s Europeanization mechanism; models, money, gate –keeping, benchmarking and monitoring, advice and twinning is the framework for the essay. Besides this Claudio Radaelli´s definition is used because it is broad enough to cover different areas

    The conclusion is that Europeanization has affected Romania in its adaption to EU membership. Romania has been affected by a top-down Europeanization process.

    Regarding the Roma the conclusion is that the mechanisms have pushed Romania to focus more on the Roma. Romania has also by new anti discrimination laws tried to prohibit discrimination.

    Invandringsfrågan nu och då: En fråga om utbud och efterfrågan i svenska riksdagsval1991-20102011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis revolves around two controversies. The first controversy being the scientific dispute weather anti-immigrant party success should best be analyzed on basis of demand- or supply- side factors. In this thesis these two opposing perspectives are applied on the Swedish parliamentary election in 2010 to test their ability of explaining the electoral success of the Swedish anti-immigrant party “Sverigedemokraterna.” The second controversy regards the diverging scientific results on when in time the immigration- issue became an issue used by the Swedish electorate to distinguish and select among parliamentary parties. The main findings of this study is that the supply-side of the argument on what is better used to explain anti-immigrant party success is right as to say that demand is not the critical issue. However the results can also not support the assumption made by supply- side advocates that anti-immigrant party success is best understood in terms of agenda setting and issue- priming- effects. The thesis also concludes that the immigration- issue has been an issue of relevance to the Swedish electorate when distinguishing and selecting among parliamentary parties since 1991.

    Abstract [en]

    Through earlier research it has been established that more and more readers are turning to social media in their search for everyday news. In this report we zoom in on news concerning football and try to find out how readers reason in picking their sources, whether it is social, online or traditional media. By interviewing a group of six, all interested in football and active within social media, we have seen that allthough social media is becoming a major influence in news reporting, it does not seem to be competing with traditional online media. Instead the two are offering the readers very different things all together, and theese differences are what we try to show in this report. Our hope is that the research in sport journalism can be translated in to all kinds of areas and be an indication on how journalism and our society is evolving online.

    Digitaliserade relationer: En studie av hur digitaliseringen påverkar Arbetsförmedlingens relation till de arbetssökande2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie undersöker hur digitaliseringen påverkar relationen mellan Arbetsförmedlingen och de arbetssökande sett ur myndighetens perspektiv. Problemställningen angrips utifrån fyra teman; Utmaning, Ansvar, Valfri­het och Ojämlikhet. Som en röd tråd genom studien löper ny­lib­e­ra­lis­men som ett övergripande teoretiskt perspektiv. Syftet med studien är att problema­ti­sera och nyansera digitaliseringens på­verkan på relationen mellan Arbetsförmedlingen och de arbetssökande.

    Forskningen om e-förvaltning utgår i allt väsentligt från implementeringen av e-förvaltning sett ur ett tekniskt perspektiv. Det finns också, om än i mindre utsträckning, studier som intresserar sig för användarna. Inom forskningsfältet finns framför allt brist på studier ur samhälls- och komm­u­nikationsvetenskapliga perspektiv. Målet med denna studie är att bidra med ny kunskap till forsk­ningsfältet genom att anamma just dessa två perspektiv.

    Studiens material utgörs av sex intervjuer med medarbetare på Arbetsförmedlingen, tre på natio­n­ell nivå och tre på lokal nivå, samt kvalitativ textanalys av sex strategidokument. Empirin vi själva samlat in utgår alltså ifrån myndighetens perspektiv på relationen till de arbetssökande. Denna kompletteras med sekundär empiri för att också belysa relationen ur de arbetssökandes pers­pektiv.

    Resultaten från studien visar att medarbetare på nationell och lokal nivå inte är riktigt överens be­träffande huruvida digitalise­ringen leder till att de arbetssökande ställer större krav på Arbetsför­medlingen. Men vad man dock är överens om är att digi­taliseringen är ett verktyg som skapar möjligheter som underlättar för de arbetssökande att ställa större krav. Vi kan också konstatera att det inom Arbetsförmedlingen i stort råder en gemensam syn på att mer ansvar förskjuts till de arbets­sökande. Nyliberalismen driver på såväl ett ökat kravställande som en ökad ansvars­förskjutning, vil­ket för­utsätter nya, företrädesvis digitala, sätt att kommuni­cera. Vidare leder digitaliseringen till en ökad till­gänglighet och valfri­het för de arbetssökande när det gäller såväl servicens innehåll som val av serviceleverantör och kommu­ni­kationskanal. Arbetsförmedlingens ambition är att styra sina kun­der till webben. Det blir därför allt viktigare att behärska de digitala verktygen för att kunna utöva sina rättigheter och fullgöra sina skyldigheter. När de digitala ser­vicevägarna prioriteras på bekostnad av den fysiska Arbets­förmedlingen riskerar de digitalt resurssvaga att miss­gynnas och marginaliseras.

    Genom resultaten kan vi sluta oss till att digitaliseringen blir ett effektivt verktyg för att tillgodose de nya kommu­nikativa preferenser som följer med den nyliber­alistiska ideologins strävan mot ökad individ- och marknadsorientering. I vår studie har vi visat att det finns en viss övertro på digitaliseringen från Arbetsförmedlingens sida. Ofta ser man till teknikens fördelar, men glömmer att ta hänsyn till den samhälleliga och sociala kontexten. Vi kan även konstatera att Arbetsför­medlingen till viss del saknar kunskaper om den digitala klyftans dimensioner och vilka åtgärder som kan vidtas för att minska exklusionen av digitalt resurssvaga arbetssökande.

    Abstract [en]

    This is a study about the transition process and the consolidation of power in Belarus. In this paper the concept of "authoritarian state building and the sources of regime competitiveness in the fourth wave" is the major theory used. After giving a description of the theory‟s concepts a short historical background of Belarus follows. Chapters four describes and explain the political situation in Belarus during five periods. After each period I analyze the situation on the basis of the suppositions from the theory. The thesis also tries to explain the conditions needed for an authoritarian regime to be established. The result of the concluding discussion shows that the major theory in this thesis presents important factors that can help to explain why and how the autocratic rule in Belarus has been consolidated.

    Sociala medier - dialog på grönbete: En studie om myndigheters arbete med sociala medier2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Frågeställning: Hur tänker myndigheter om kommunikation till medborgare i förhållande tilldet nya sociala medielandskapet?

    Bakgrund: År 2010 kom Sveriges kommuner och landsting (SKL) ut med riktlinjer för hurmyndigheterna bör förhålla sig till sociala medier. Detta blev startskottet förmyndigheternas närvaro i de sociala medierna. Myndigheternas traditionellakommunikation har till stor del handlat om att informera genomenvägskommunikation. I och med de sociala mediernas intåg hartvåvägskommunikationen kommit att bli allt mer förekommande, något sommyndigheterna nu måste förhålla sig till.

    Syfte: Att utifrån ett relationsperspektiv, nå ökad förståelse genom attproblematisera kommuner och länsstyrelsers kommunikation via socialamedier i allmänhet, men även vid krissituationer. Det saknas studier som harjust denna specifika utgångspunkt, varpå ett av syftena blir att breddakunskapen inom området.

    Metod: Kvalitativa intervjuer med kommunikatörer, innehållsanalyser avkommunikationsplaner och kvantitativa innehållsanalyser av myndigheternasinläggsflöde på Facebook och Twitter.

    Slutsats: Myndigheterna använder sig av fyra olika kommunikationsstrategier ikommunikationen via sociala medier. De har en önskan om att föra dialogmed sina följare men har i stort inte utvecklat några tydliga strategier för hurdetta bör gå till. De organisatoriska förutsättningar som myndigheterna haratt förhålla sig till har lett till svårigheter för hur man agerar i de socialamedierna.

Syftet med uppsatsen, som är ett uppdrag från länsstyrelsen i Blekinge, är att se vilka risker de anställda jag intervjuat ser i samhället samt hur de söker information om risker och var de vänder sig för information. Tolv kvalitativa intervjuer har gjorts för att besvara syftet, varav fyra av intervjuerna har varit med anställda med ansvaret som Tjänsteman i Beredskap, TiB, under en krissituation. En jämförelse av TiB:arna och de övriga intervjuade har därför kunnat göras. Resultatet visar på att intervjupersonerna känner att de lever i ett tryggt samhälle och därmed inte känner ett behov av att söka information kring risker i samhället. Det finns dock olika faktorer, exempelvis media, som gör att de ser vissa risker framför andra, men om respondenterna skulle söka information medvetet skulle de inte vända sig till media utan snarare finna information hos andra medarbetare som är insatta i ämnet. Två risktyper har kunnat urskiljas bland de anställda jag intervjuat. Den första är den negligerande optimisten som ignorerar faran och som därför heller inte söker någon information om risker. Den andra typen är den strategiska realisten som, precis som det låter, ser risker på ett mer realistiskt plan och söker information när situationen kräver. Uppsatsen har visat på vikten av att ta hänsyn till den sociala aspekten vid risker eftersom olika kunskaper och erfarenheter påverkar hur risker uppfattas av den enskilde individen. Utifrån de iakttagelser som gjorts, tillsammans med hjälp av tidigare forskning, har jag gett rekommendationer till länsstyrelsen i Blekinge om hur arbetet med risk- och krishantering samt dess kommunikation kan förbättras.

    Förvärvsgarantins förutsättningar: Svårt att utforma fungerande politiska reformer2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The title of this thesis is “The preconditions of the acquisition guarantee- hard to design working political reforms”. The acquisition guarantee (förvärvsgaranti) is a form of credit guarantee issued by the Swedish government to credit institutes that give out housing loans to debtors with poor credit history. The reform hasn´t been used in any substantial extent.

    The purpose of the study is to investigate whether you could identify any problems with the preconditions that the governmental agency BKN was given to implement the acquisition guarantee, and if so describe which these problems are.

    Two questions are answered:

    1.      What preconditions for a working implementation of the guarantee, in the form of rules, objectives and directives was offered by the government in their steering of BKN?

    2.      How did the structural preconditions for a working implementation of the guarantee look like?

    By doing a text analysis of central documents I find that the lack of outcome could to some extent be related to weaknesses in how the reform was formulated. The goals and means are somewhat vaguely expressed and the reform is suffering of a lack of incentives or sanctions that induce the recipients to comply.

    The structural preconditions are from my theoretical perspective harder to criticize.

    Sverigedemokraterna - ett oemotsagt parti?: En studie av bemötandet av Sverigedemokraterna och deras sakfråga i den svenska riksdagen2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this thesis is, through both a quantitative and qualitative study, to map out how the interaction appears between the established parties and the radical right-wing party, the Sweden Democrat’s (SD) and their core issue – immigration in the Swedish parliament. By applying analytical dimensions on the parliamentary protocols regarding the immigration issue between the years of 2010-2012 this study will get an insight on how the argumentation concerning immigration has developed since their entrance into the Swedish parliament in 2010. The result shows that SD, through the rejection treatment of the established parties, fulfilled the three conditions which accordingly to the study's theoretical framework are crucial for the party's future success. In the established parties’ reception of SD regarding immigration, SD is, to a large extent, left unchallenged as the established parties rather focus on integration instead of challenge SD in the immigration issue. Furthermore, the result reinforce the previous studies stating that a radical right-wing party gains greater success if the established parties refuses to treat them as equals in the parliament.

    Europeiska Unionen: En resa genom tid om hur dagspressen i två nationer framställer europeisk gemenskap2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis has its focus

    on media portrayal of a large political institution; the European Union. Articles from two nations daily newspapers have been analyzed in order to examine how the European Union is described and framed for their readers. The newspapers that was chosen for this study and from which the material was collected, were the Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet the American newspaper The New York Times. The material was taken from three periods of time, and by this the results did not only serve a presentiment on how the media reports about the subject, but also an idea over the media’s coverage character over time. Also, by analyzing articles from newspapers from different countries, the material could give an answer to whether there is any difference in media reporting and coverage about the European Union over nation borders.

    Theories that have been under observation for this study, and which have functioned as tools for the analyzing process are: the agenda-setting theory, media ideology, framing, media logic and political communication. Further inspirations that have been under consideration and of values through the development of this thesis are thoughts from the modern theorist Jürgen Habermas, and earlier studies that have been made on the subject in matter, for example ones by Lars Palm and Vanni Tjernström.

    Results from this study showed that there were differences between the two nations way of reporting about the subject, and also that changes over time have occurred. Mostly, it was the Swedish news reporting that showed evident change over the three investigated periods. This can be explained by the countries over all changed relationship towards the European Union. Further did results from this study show that the American articles included more actors and subjects, compared to the Swedish articles. This can be a factor of the American articles longer character.

    Kulturkrockare eller Kommunikationskompetent?: En kvalitativ intervjustudie om interkulturell kommunikation2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 15 poäng / 22,5 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this thesis was to investigate the implications and challenges of intercultural communication. An in-depth study was performed of the perspectives from people who work within an international organization. How they experience cultural differences and how they handle them, in particular when it comes to communication. Also, their perceptions of communicative competence were explored. The study was carried out at Svalorna India Bangladesh, at the Swedish office in Lund. Svalorna’s staff was interviewed on their experiences of intercultural communication. Both employees at the Swedish office and employees on location in India and Bangladesh were interviewed. The method used in the study was qualitative interviews where the interviewees could expand their answers fully as the interview developed. The main theory used was Geert Hofstede’s cultural dimensions, presented in the thesis and considered in the study. It was concluded that being aware of cultural differences and having knowledge of other cultures but also your own is important for understanding the so-called non-verbal communication in an intercultural situation. There are also differences in to what extent a certain culture uses non-verbal communication. Both India and Bangladesh, according to the interviewees, are high context cultures whereas Sweden has a low context culture. All the interviewees had similar experiences when it comes to intercultural communication. A cultural difference in the perception of time is an example of when verbal communication can be inadequate, if one is not aware of cultural differences. Both India and Bangladesh use polychronic time whereas in Sweden monochromic time is used. This is indeed confirmed by all interviewees. Many of Hofstede’s cultural dimension theories are found to be coherent with the results of this study, for example the Individualism.

    "Does that look like a Ford to you?": Företagsimage i spelfilm och reklamfilm2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Studies show that product placement is becoming a more and more common method for companies to use when communicating with consumers. The results of this study can’t confirm nor deny that claim, but instead we offered the observation that as a communication method, product placement and TV-commercials are more similar than revealed at first glance.

    Cars of the brand Ford appeared in seven out of the 50 motion pictures that made up the sample material in this study. In several instances the values that were communicated regarding the brand matched, completely or in large parts, the values communicated about the Ford brand in Ford’s own commercials.

    This doesn’t hold true for all companies. The similarities between Ford’s commercials and Ford’s appearances in motion pictures were only found after disregarding several companies whose appearances on screen didn’t amount to more than a flash of their logotype or a passing mention of a brand name. Still, the possibility to use the appearance of brands in motion pictures in a way equal to the communicative effort that’s taking place in a commercial is very much a reality.
