    Den latenta förbrytaren: En diskursanalys av hur ”invandraren” framställs i relation till brottslighet.2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Föreliggande uppsats syftar till att undersöka hur ”invandraren” i relation till brottslighet framställs i diskursen samt vilka premisser representationen vilar på. Metoden utgörs av en kvalitativ diskursanalys, diskursen utgörs av opinionsbildande texter i dags- och kvällstidningar. Det har framkommit ett antal olika konkurrerande diskurser som samspelar. Den dominerande diskurser består av en presumtiv hållning att kategorin ”invandrare” är mer kriminell än övriga kategorier. En annan konkurrerande representation är ”invandraren” som offer för främlingsfientlighet och en politiserad debatt, eller dålig socialpolitik. ”Invandraren” beskrivs i genomgående termer som offer för hög arbetslöshet, låg utbildningsnivå, fattigdom, isolering och dålig integrations- och migrationspolitik. Inte sällan förekom samtliga representationer tillsammans. Sättet att beskriva ”invandraren” som mer utsatt och i behov av ”vår” hjälp bidrar till en reducering av ”invandraren” som ständigt i behov av sociala åtgärder, detta i sin tur kan förväntas bidra till en bild av den framtida förbrytaren.

    Libya, Syria and The Responsibilty to Protect:: A Case Study to determine what accounted for the different outcomes.2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract:

    In 2011, the Libyan and Syrian crises caught the attention of the media and international society. Whereas the former reached a positive outcome in compliance with the application of the Responsibility to Protect norm, the latter continues to claim the lives of thousands of people to this day. Despite calls by the international community, China and Russia continue being an impediment for the adoption of measures in Syria in the name of the Responsibility to Protect. Their arguments are in line with the criticized Libyan intervention. Nevertheless, it is possible that the real reasons behind this shift of attitude from one crisis to another, are nothing more than a neo-realistic response to regional politics.

    Keywords:

    Libya, Syria, Responsibility to Protect (RtoP), Neo-realism, Social constructivism, China, Russia.

    Talking Solidarity and the Burden of Saving Lives: A Qualitative Case Study on the Common European Asylum System2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis examines the difficulties encountered in the process of establishing the CommonEuropean Asylum System, taken from a discursive perspective. The focus of the study isthreefold; why are specific issues highlighted by the European Union Member States, how isthe discursive conflict expressed within the discourse on CEAS, and what definitions ofsolidarity are promoted by the Member States. In purpose of addressing these focuses,discourse theory, issue salience and solidarity through burden sharing are used as theoreticalframework. By applying critical method and discourse analysis, this study has managed toestablish that the security issues are among the most highlighted, whereas the geographicallocation of a Member State seems to be an explanatory factor to a Member State’s specificemphasis. Regarding the discursive conflict, the definitions of the concepts mutual trust, fairdistribution and cooperation are especially contested. Furthermore, the external dimension ofsolidarity is proven to be the precedent definition of solidarity.

    Offentlig förvaltning: Att arbeta i demokratins tjänst2010Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Boken ger en överblick över organiseringen och den diskussion och problematik som präglar politik och förvaltning i ett pluralistiskt modernt samhälle. Frågan är t.ex. hur enskilda individers och gruppers behov av frihet och självbestämmande kan förenas med behovet av ömsesidiga hänsynstaganden och gemensamma, kollektiva angelägenheter i en demokrati. Att arbeta i politiskt styrd verksamhet innebär att man möter både praktiska och etiska problem som skall lösas i samråd med många andra inblandade aktörer. I ett avslutande kapitel i boken behandlas därför etiska frågeställningar som präglar den offentliga förvaltningen.

    Hälsoteknik: Ett tillväxtområde och innovationssystem med gränsöverskridande potential utifrån ett genusperspektiv?2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Innovationer och innovationssystem har på senare tid fått en allt viktigare roll i synen på vad somfrämjar ekonomisk tillväxt och regional utveckling. Forskning visar att statliga satsningar inominnovationspolitiken uppvisar ett prioriteringsmönster där kön synes vara en organiserandeprincip. Tekniktunga branscher som främst sysselsätter män som anställda får majoriteten av demedel som delas ut för att stödja och utveckla innovativa processer . I Halland är Hälsoteknik etts.k. prioriterat tillväxtområde och därmed mottagare av dessa medel. Hälsoteknik har somområde en potential att vara gränsöverskridande då det sammanför mansdominerade branschermed könsbalanserade och kvinnodominerade branscher. Uppsatsen studerar om tillväxtområdetoch innovationssystemet hälsoteknik utmanar de dualistiska genuskonstruktioner som forskningvisat att den svenska innovationspolitiken bygger på, samt visar på genusperspektivets relevans iatt synliggöra obalanser i strukturer som kan verka tillväxthämmande.

    Taiwan’s Public Diplomacy and Mega-event: An Analysis of Foreign News Reports of the World Games 2009 Kaohsiung2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis, as a case study, focuses on the perspective of foreign news reports on Taiwan’s first time hosting an international multi-sport event, the World Games 2009 in its biggest port city Kaohsiung. The World Games 2009 Kaohsiung, the significant Olympic type mega-event as to Taiwan, is applied as the approach to public diplomacy and soft power for the purpose of expanding Taiwan’s international space. It is expected to raise publicity and mass media exposure to boost Taiwan’s international profile and spur its tourism industry. From Taiwan’s image-marketing strategy, practices to foreign news reports, it outweighs to study foreign media’s reflection on Taiwan and the World Games 2009 as the important evaluation on the mega-event as a whole. This thesis attempts to answer two research questions: How was the World Games 2009 Kaohsiung reported by the foreign media? Did hosting the World Games improve Taiwan’s image? It presents the results and perspectives of foreign news reports by qualitative methods: case study and discourse analysis of online-English news reports and some quantitative methods applied on data. It combines news reports study with theory, model of public diplomacy, mega-event and expected-model. Within 101 pieces of online-English news found related to the World Games 2009, it unveils fruitful results such as the failure of interpreting the core story (Taiwan’s images and values) by foreign media during the sporting extravaganza, and it echoes Rivenburgh (2004)’s three viewpoints toward the Olympic type event (intercultural challenges, less news about host country’s culture and dramatic news). By the amount of news and the absence of foreign media on the press conference indicates that foreign media did not pay much attention to the World Games and Taiwan. In spite of reporting the sports and games, other major topics of reports were Taiwan’s hosting the event, the greenest solar-powered stadium designed by Japanese, Toyo Ito, Chu Chen’s promotion itinerary to Beijing and China’s absence on the opening and closing ceremony which triggered foreign media’s great concern.

    Samstyret kring naturum på Koster: En fallstudie om medborgerligt deltagande2010Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med föreliggande uppsats är att utifrån ett teoretiskt och begreppsmässigt ramverk, bestående av en diskussion kring demokratiteori, governance, samstyre och deltagande, att genomföra en analys av samstyret i naturumprocessen. Förloppet kring naturum utgjorde en betydande del i processen kring bildandet av Kosterhavets nationalpark. Karaktäristiskt för naturums samstyre har varit att företrädare för myndigheter från nationell, regional och kommunal nivå har styrt och samarbetat tillsammans med företrädare från lokal nivå. De aktörer som har ingått i samstyret har varit Naturvårdsverket, Länsstyrelsen Västra Götaland, Strömstads kommun, Kosternämnden och helårs- och delårsboende kosterbor. Fokus finns framförallt på medborgarnas och Kosternämndens deltagande. Kosternämnden är en partiopolitisk nämnd och ett deltagardemokratiskt forum som har bildats på Kosteröarna i Strömstads kommun i norra Bohuslän. Samstyret analyseras med hjälp av en analysmodell som har konstruerats med utgångspunkt från det teoretiska ramverket. Det metodologiska tillvägagångssättet har inneburit att naturumprocessen har spårats bakåt och kartlagts med hjälp av intervjuer med de aktörer som har varit involverade i samstyret. En dokumentanalys har genomförts av dokument från myndigheter, från Strömstads kommun, från Kosternämnden, från olika webbsidor och från Strömstads Tidning.

    Resultaten visar att naturums samstyre har varit funktionellt på ett övergripande plan. Likväl har legitimitets- och förtroendekriser kunnat identifieras som går att härleda till beslutsprocessens utformning och de lokala aktörernas, Kosternämndens och helårs- och delårsboendes kosterbors, deltagande. För att bedriva samstyresprocesser krävs resurser, processledning och kommunikations- och deltagandeplaner.

    The Sun, The Wind, and the Kaesong Industrial Complex: The Contrasting Views of the Republic of Korea and the United States of America on Inter-Korean Cooperation2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the different attitudes of the Republic of Korea (South Korea) and the United States of America with regards to the Kaesong Industrial Complex, a joint inter-Korean economic project located in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea). The paper uses the theoretical framework of Social Constructivism to analyze the different ideas available in the political discourse of both actors with regards to North Korean policy in general and policy towards Kaesong specifically. The paper relates these ideas to the positions both actors have taken with regards to the inclusion of Kaesong products in the S. Korean-U.S. FTA.

    Amerikanska drönarattacker: Legitimt självförsvar eller illegitimt maktmissbruk2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Kandidatuppsatsens syfte är undersöka tesen De amerikanska drönarattackerna är legitima, och genom att analysera folkrättsliga normer, suveränitetsprincipen, rapporten om The Responsibility to Protect, FNs stadga och säkerhetsrådets resolutioner och lyfta fram de argument som stödjer eller undergräver tesen. Uppsatsens metodologiska del handlar först om en idékritisk kvalitativ textanalys där dokument och texter analyseras, och sedan ska en argumentationsanalys där en pro et contra-lista skapas av de argument som textanalysen lyfter fram, detta för att få en djupare förståelse för hur komplext internationell rätt är ur en normsättande vinkel och varför politiker och experter kan ha svårt för att enas om en gemensamma tolkningar av det normativa ramverket som styr agerandet i väpnade konflikter. Kandidatuppsatsens syfte är att enbart titta på de juridiska aspekterna, och därför utlämnas andra aspekter såsom etiska, moraliska, ideologiska med flera från denna forskning.

    Regional Reform and Citizen Participation in Sweden2004In: Innovation. The European Journal of Social Sciences, ISSN 1351-1610, E-ISSN 1469-8412, Vol. 17, no 2, p. 145-163Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Seven years ago the Swedish government launched a Regional Reform Programme with the aim of establishing a new intermediate level of governance alongside the national level and that of the local municipality. The conditions for achieving constructive institutionalization differ considerably in Skåne and Västra Götaland, the two regions participating in the pilot programme. However, the level of citizen participation (i.e. voter turnout in regional elections) in the two regions does not differ--in both regions, citizens have demonstrated tremendous indifference towards the new fora. One reason for this could be that the reform has to a very large degree been built on traditional political structures, which in turn have suffered a loss of credibility in the past decades. There might, however, also be reason to question the often presupposed link between a region's degree of socio-cultural consolidation and its acceptance as a vital and meaningful political entity.

    Ecological risk assessment of pesticides in the EU: What factors and groups influence policy changes?2015In: Journal of Risk Research, ISSN 1366-9877, E-ISSN 1466-4461, Vol. 18, no 9, p. 1165-1183Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    For the last couple of years, European environmental risk assessment (ERA) regulations have undergone significant changes. The new 1107/2009 directive which came into effect in 2011 has triggered an on-going debate on defining specific protection goals for ERA. During this period, we conducted a study on policy change among the most influential ERA stakeholders from Europe. We interviewed 43, purposively sampled, participants from the European safety authorities, plant protection product industry and academia. Transcribed interviews underwent thematic analysis conducted separately by two coders. As we followed the advocacy coalition framework, our findings focus on stakeholders processes, interrelations and values behind the ERA policy change. The main challenges emerging from our analysis turned out to be the slow uptake of scientific developments into ERA and very broadly defined protection goals. The use of safety factors and cut-off criteria left risk assessors with many uncertainties. With ERA in its current form it turned out to be impossible to determine whether the current scheme is over- or under-protective. Still, the study shows that the problem of over- or under-protectiveness lies deep in the perception of stakeholders and depends greatly on their priorities. Academics strive for better ecological relevance as a priority. They have concerns that ERA is oversimplified. Regulators worry that ERA relies too much on risk mitigation and is possibly not protective enough, but at the same time, the majority believes that the assessment is well established and straightforward to follow. Industry representatives would like to see ERA based more on probabilistic risk assessment. Recent changes, according to risk assessment and management practitioners have led to an inevitable increase in complexity, which is not perceived as a positive thing, and does not necessarily translate into better risk assessment. © 2014 Taylor & Francis.

    Women in Politics in Thailand2005Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    In Thailand, as in most other Asian countries, politics has traditionally been a male preserve. Compared to men, women have not been visible in governance and politics. Although Thailand was among the first Asian countries to grant the right to vote to women, after almost seven and a half decades’ of slow, incremental gains for women in politics, the representation of women remains no more than a blip on a political landscape dominated by men. There is still little analysis on the participation of women in politics at various levels of government in Thailand and research to date is fragmentary. However, interest in this field is growing in light of the development of democracy with the introduction of the new constitution in 1997, as well as changes in civil society. In this paper, the case of Thailand is used to achieve three main objectives. First, the position and advancement of women in the Thai parliament will be analyzed in order to contribute to research on women’s political representation in the developing world. Second, the case of Thailand will be used to test some of the assumptions and theories developed in the advanced industrialized democracies of Europe and North America concerning the impact of women in public office. Third, the major barriers facing the entrance of women into the national parliament in Thailand will be examined to see whether the Thai case is consistent with research findings on women and politics in industrial democracies of the West.

    Women´s Political Participation and Representation in Asia: Obstacles and Challenges2007Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The ability of a small elite of highly educated, upper-class Asian women to obtain the highest political positions in their country is unmatched elsewhere in the world and deserves study. But there is a marked lack of relevant research as well as of comprehensive and user-friendly texts. Aiming to fill the gap is this timely and important study of the various obstacles and opportunities for women's political participation and representation in Asia.

    Från Rosenbad till Afghanistan: Soldaten och implementeringen av den svenska målsättningen i Afghanistan2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In all times soldiers have fought wars with orders from the political ruling power. Therefore the soldier becomes the utmost instrument for implementing the political objective in conflicts. In modern conflicts, the soldier is a frontline bureaucrat. If the soldier does not understand, can, or will act in agreement with the political objective, the soldier's actions is not based on legitimacy. The polical objective with the intervention will not be accomplished.

    Swedish soldiers who participated in the international forces in Afghanistan have not fully understood their government’s goals, and what the efforts aimed at resolving. Soldiers have not fully been given the practical or theoretical ability required to work with the goals of the intervention. Soldiers also showed a willingness to participate in the conflict which can not be fully regarded as being in line with the goals they are supposed to resolve. The soldier’s willingness to reach the goals has been influenced by the reality of the conflict in which the soldiers participate in. The soldier also experienced a disengagement in relation to what the political will wants to achieve, and the physical reality the soldier has been working in.

    Kommunal befolkningsförändring: En studie av mellankommunal migration och dess bakomliggande faktorer2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen undersöker befolkningsförändring sett ur ett migrationsperspektiv under perioden 2000-2009. Studien visar att 145 av Sveriges 290 kommuner under 2000-talet har minskat i befolkning medan 140 kommuner har ökat i befolkning. Det grundläggande pro-blemet uppsatsen belyser är det faktum att 15 av dessa kommuner minskat i befolkning med mer än 10 procent. Utöver detta tillkommer att 29 kommuner haft en befolkningsökning på mer än 10 procent. Utvecklingen orsakar en skevhet i den kommunala organisationen som medför problem ibland annat den kommunala budgeteringen. Studiens utvalda förklaringsva-riabler är ett begränsat urval som baserats på tidigare forskning och teori kring migration och flyttmönster. Förklaringsvariablerna som användes behandlade följande områden:

    arbetslöshet, utbildningsgrad, nystartade företag, skatteunderlag, kommunala utgifter, barnomsorgskostnad, nettokostnad för äldre och funktionshindrade samt jämställdhet. Uppsatsens syfte är inte att ge en heltäckande förklaringsmodell utan att undersöka ett urval av möjliga förklar-ingsfaktorer. Den totala förklaringsmodellen lämnas således för framtida forskare att reda ut.

    Av studiens resultat framgår ingen av variablerna som dominerande gällande förklaringskraft, däremot framstår de totala kommunala utgifterna, barnomsorgskostnad och antal nystartade företag som viktigast sett till kommunal befolkningsutveckling. Skatteunderlag och jämställdhet var de variabler av minst betydelse.

    Vägen till ett attraktivare Vallås: en processutvärdering av lokalt utvecklingsarbete och samverkan i nätverk2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    För andra gången startar nu det kommunala bostadsbolaget i Halmstad (HFAB) upp ett lokalt utvecklingsarbete för att förbättra ett bostadsområde. Med de boendes deltagande vill man skapa tankar kring hur man kan göra stadsdelen Vallås till en mer attraktiv stadsdel.Syftet med den här uppsatsen är att, ur ett deltagardemokratiskt perspektiv, undersöka hur bred samverkan kring stadsdelsförnyelse fungerar. För att kunna göra detta avser jag att genomföra en kvalitativ processutvärdering. Jag kommer att använda mig av Nils Herttings teorier om deltagardemokratier och analysmodell gällande förhoppningar och risker i den samverkansintensiva politiken.Min uppsats visar att projekt har en deltagardemokratisk grund och att man lyckats få med gräsrötter och ökat den demokratiska kompetensen. Samtligt finns det vissa tendenser på att man främst attraherar redan engagerade medborgare. Vidare visar jag att samverkan fungerar väl, det finns mycket delaktighet och engagemang i utvecklingsarbetet och tillit bland deltagarna. Men det finns olika förväntningar bland deltagarna och att man inte har lyckats skapa en enhetlig bild av vad som är syftet med projektet.

    Learning to Be(come) A Good European: A Critical Analysis of the Official European Union Discourse on European Identity and Higher Education2016In: 1st International Conference Europe in Discourse: Identity, Diversity, Borders: Book of Abstracts / [ed] Stefanos Basigkal, Antonia Chouvarda, Themis Kaniklidou, Gerasimos Kontaxis and Aggeliki Tzigkou, Athens: Hellenic American University , 2016, p. 121-121Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    During the year 2007, the European Union could look back at fifty years of collaboration, which began with the signing of the Treaty of Rome in 1957 and which has developed from being mainly economic in character to incorporating a political as well as a social dimension at the European level. In 2007 the European Union also commemorated the twentieth anniversary of Erasmus, its higher education mobility programme. It is this relatively new political dimension which I have been interested in investigating in my research. More precisely it is the political construction of a common European identity which is analysed using a critical discourse analysis approach.The major aim of this research has been twofold. The first aim has been to investigate how the European is constructed in the discourse contained within the official European Union policy documents. I have been interested in analysing the various structures, in the form of ideas and norms which are used in order to cons truct ‘the European’. In this sense This research is a study of the power of modern government. I am influenced by Foucault and his concept of ’governmentality’ which can be linked to his other concepts of ’conduct of conduct’ and ’conduct of the self’. Is being a European something we are or something we become? I argue that there is an increase in normative soft power where ‘The Good European’ is not something ‘you’ are but something ‘you’ become by being a responsible active citizen who partake in higher education as a lifelong learning project. The second aim has been to explore whether the role of higher education, as constructed in the official European Union discourse, is given a similar identity-making role as education is argued to have in the nationstate according to the theory on national identity. I argue that there are three version of European identity construction, i.e. cultural, civic, and neo-liberal, with their own relationship to highe r education, present in the empirical material analysed, consisting of official European Union documents. Through the use of critical discourse analysis I illuminate the power which resides in the language in the discourse analysed. Thus, I have been interested in investigating how the official European Union discourse on European identity and higher education works to both include and exclude individuals. © 2016, Hellenic American University
