    Researching corporate social responsibility in developing-countries context: A systematic review of the literature2018In: International Journal of Law and Management, ISSN 1754-243X, E-ISSN 1754-2448, Vol. 60, no 2, p. 284-310Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: This paper aims to present a systematic review of scholarly articles focused on corporate social responsibility (CSR) in developing countries and published during the period 2004 to 2014 in international journals.

    Design/methodology/approach: This paper applied a bibliometric analysis to 101 articles on CSR research focused on developing countries.

    Findings: The study confirms that the most prevalent CSR themes addressed in journals have been social issues, followed by environmental issues in a distant second, with ethics-related issues receiving the least attention. Also, as CSR research in developing countries constitutes an emerging stream of literature, an overwhelming dominance of empirical (qualitative) papers aimed at exploring and/or seeking interpretations to CSR motivations have been confirmed.

    Research limitations/implications: An important limitation of this study is in relation to the methods applied. In the first place, this review is based on two electronic databases: ABI/INFORM Global (ProQuest) and Web of Science Core Collection: Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI) and Science Citation Index Expanded (SCI-EXPANDED). This means that research published in international journals that are not included in either of these databases will be omitted.

    Practical implications: This review provides useful guidance for future CSR research focused on developing countries thereby providing a foundation for future research in this stream of CSR research.

    Social implications: The findings of this study suggest that much CSR knowledge in developing countries reflects the unique social issues that call for companies to adopt different CSR interventions when operating in developing countries.

    Originality/value: Although this paper is not the first to systematically review CSR research, but it is one of the initial attempts, to the best of the knowledge, to systematically review the state of CSR knowledge in the context of developing countries.

    A health education in Top Shape - governing and communication strategies in the edutainment series of Top Shape2013In: International Journal of E-Health and Medical Communications (IJEHMC), ISSN 1947-315X, E-ISSN 1947-3168, no 2, p. 22-27Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Contemporary society is often described as a “learning society”, in which citizens are educated to reflect on and evaluate their well- being and lifestyles. In school, this is done through assessments: ratings and evaluations, in working life through staff appraisals and health evaluations, and in everyday life, media is used for self-assessments. Focus in this article is on the later. Mass media has become an increasingly common tool to produce and promote knowledge about health and lifestyle. In various edutainment programs experts and coaches supports participants to improve their lives in one way or another. In this article I will focus on the series “Toppform” (Top shape) broadcasted on Swedish television in 2008. Top Shape is one of the health and lifestyle TV- series that use coordinated communication channels to interact with its viewers. Parallel with the program being broadcasted on television, it is also represented with material on the Internet. This study focuses on the material that is represented on the website of the TV-series, which also contains material used for teaching in school settings. By that, the material constitutes an interesting encounter between entertainment, school education and public health education and is therefore fruitful to study from a perspective of health communication. I adopt a critical discourse analytic approach, in which power relations and the constitution of social practices are in focus.

    Governmentality as a genealogical toolbox in historical analysis2013In: European Education: Issues and Studies, ISSN 1056-4934, E-ISSN 1944-7086, Vol. 45, no 4, p. 61-74Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to show how governmentality may be used to analyze historical events and discourses, and how this historical analysis can be used as a perspective to problematize contemporary discourses. The example used in this article is from my research on life-extension handbooks published in Sweden 1700-1930, and by this I stress handbooks as a noninstitutional educative arena. I am advocating governmentality as a toolbox to analyze how various forms of power operate and how different levels of power integrate and conflict in this arena. In doing so, I recommend governmentality as a critical and empirical approach to analyze various forms of power relations and governance. I exemplify the flexibility of the toolbox by using genealogy and governmentality in combination with linguistic tools from Critical Discourse Analysis and Norman Fairclough. In this way, I want to stress the critical gaze and the importance of situation in time and space by arguing for greater respect for the variants of the concepts of genealogy and governmentality. © 2013 Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.

    Konsten att leva länge: föreställningar om livets förlängning i handböcker 1700-19302007Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Drömmen om evigt liv och evig ungdom är inte ny. Föreställningarna om vägen dit är ungefär desamma idag som för 300 år sedan. Men de tekniska möjligheterna har vidgat gränserna.Att förbli ung, eller åtminstone se ung ut, är ett ideal som växer sig allt starkare. Åldrande och död ska bekämpas, att hålla sig ung och att leva länge är viktigt. Det gäller att träna och sköta sin hälsa.Det kan förefalla vara ett modernt ideal, men det är det inte. Människans kamp för att förlänga livet, och drömmen om evig ungdom, har rötter långt bak i historien. Uppfattningarna om hur man ska nå dit har också stått sig förvånansvärt väl genom tiderna.- Grunden i de praktiska råden är sig lika från 1700-talet och fram till våra dagar. Det handlar om att äta och dricka måttligt, leva naturligt, sova ordentligt, motionera, leva lantliv och andas frisk luft, säger Janicke Andersson, som disputerar vid Tema äldre och åldrande, Linköpings universitet. Hon har studerat historiska handböcker om hur man förlänger livet och jämfört dem med dagens debatt och rådgivningsböcker.

    På 1700-talet var uppfattningen att människan hade en optimal ålder, ända upp till 250 år (som sades vara patriarkernas ålder) och att vi hade degenererat och därför levde betydligt kortare. Det borde gå att uppnå den optimala åldern igen genom att leva rätt.Idag finns ingen bortre gräns för hur länge vi tror oss kunna leva. Inrättningar som Immortality institute, Life extension institute och föreningar som Transhumanisterna arbetar för ett längre eller t o m evigt liv här på jorden. Med transplantationskirurgi kan vi byta ut utnötta kroppsdelar, hormoninjektioner och piller ska bromsa åldrandet, och döda kan frysas ned i förhoppning om att tinas upp igen den dag det blir tekniskt möjligt att få liv i dem.Att sköta sin hälsa och sträva efter att leva länge har blivit en fråga om moral. Budskapet är att med rätt livsstil går det att förhindra åldrandet och behålla sitt unga utseende. Skröplighet blir därför ett tecken på moraliska brister. Själva livsförloppet har blivit ett personligt projekt som handlar om självkontroll och självdisciplin. Det gäller inte bara att leva länge, utan också att leva aktivt. Successfull ageing och Active ageing är rörelser i tiden.”Hur man åldras styr man själv. Det är på dig det beror hur du hanterar situationen” heter det i en modern handbok.Tidigare användes religionen för att underbygga detta budskap. Endast som god kristen kunde man uppnå ett långt liv. Idag har hälsorörelser övertagit mycket av denna gamla retorik. De populära stenåldersdieterna, exempelvis, bygger på uppfattningen att vi har förlorat ett paradisiskt tillstånd, Edens lustgård, som vi kan hitta tillbaka till.

    Vi vill uppnå det eviga livet, men vi vill göra det här på jorden och själva bestämma spelreglerna, skriver Janicke Andersson.

    Pensionärsjävlar – revolt mot eller ett upprepande av negativa ålderskoder?2013In: Sociologisk forskning, ISSN 0038-0342, Vol. 50, no 3/4, p. 247-266Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Old bastard – rebellion against or a repetition of negative age codes?

    In contemporary media and scientific contexts, it has become increasingly popular to launch today’s elderly as different from previous generations of older people, especially emphasized is that today’s elderly will have more attitude and set higher demands on society. The TVseries Pensionärsjävlar is based on this idea of today’s and tomorrow’s elderly as different and more rebellious than previous generations. The purpose of this article is to analyze and discuss how age and age codes are used as a prerequisite for, but also are challenged in the series. The result shows that chronological age is almost absent in the series, instead age coding is performed by physical attributes and verbal acts. Most common attributes are those connected to decreased functionality, such as walker, wheelchair, walking stick etcetera. The most common taboo joked about is sexuality, and other common themes are decreased functionality, child/youth- like behavior and traffic. In the article I discuss how these themes and attributes are negotiated in relation to age.

    Employer attitudes toward hiring persons with disabilities: A vignette study in Sweden2015In: Journal of Vocational Rehabilitation, ISSN 1052-2263, E-ISSN 1878-6316, Vol. 43, no 1, p. 41-50Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Individuals with disabilities are often far removed from the labour market and research shows that employers’ negative attitudes toward persons with disabilities create a barrier to attaining employment. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to investigate Swedish employers’ experiences and attitudes toward hiring persons with various disabilities. METHODS: A vignette method with accompanying questions was used. A total of 212 employers, who were actively seeking to hire, were recruited via an online employment site and participated in the study. RESULTS: The results indicated that there is some interest for employers to hire persons with disabilities and that this depended on the type of disability a person has. Other results demonstrated that previous experience of employing persons with disabilities was linked to greater interest in hiring, that employers had greater interest to hire than they thought other employers had, and that openness about the disability was deemed as an important factor in the hiring process. CONCLUSION: The novelty of this study is its use of a vignette design to investigate employers’ attitudes in Sweden. Moreover, the results are much in line with international research. This contributes to knowledge and development of increasing employment for persons with disabilities. © 2015 - IOS Press and the authors. All rights reserved.

    The critical role of informed political direction for advancing technology: The case of Swedish marine energy2017In: Energy Policy, ISSN 0301-4215, E-ISSN 1873-6777, Vol. 101, p. 52-64Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Marine energy technologies can contribute to meeting sustainability challenges, but they are still immature and dependent on public support. This paper employs the Technological Innovation Systems (TIS) framework to analyze the development and diffusion of Swedish marine energy up until 2014. While there were promising device developers, relevant industrial capabilities, and world-class research, the system suffered from weaknesses in several important innovation processes. Finally, the analysis identifies the lack of informed political direction as a critical blocking factor and highlights its connection to domestic market potential. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd

    From closet-fill to toxic sublime: The aesthetics of e-waste2019In: 18th Annual STS Conference Graz 2019: Book of Abstracts, 2019, p. 58-59Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Electronic waste (e-waste) has a peculiar relation to space. It is well-documented how a large part of discarded electronic devices still remain in people’s homes, instead of reaching the recycling centres. This is especially true with digital media and communication technologies such as computers and mobile phones (ironically the devices with the shortest life cycles). This phenomenon has been described by the term “closet-fill” (as opposed to land-fill). However, representations of electronic waste in public discourse such as news reports, seldom focus on this aspect. Instead, they tend to portray e-waste dumping sites as strange, almost alien spaces. Sublime imagery invites the viewer to a contemplation over Western consumerism in a fashion recognizable from visual arts. Consequently, imagery of electronic waste has also become an object of aesthetic value in the works of renowned visual artists such as Pieter Hugo and David LaChapelle, who have gained recognition because of this inclusion of imagery of e-waste in their photographic art. The aim of this paper is to address these aesthetic qualities of electronic waste. The purpose is to contribute to the expanding literature on media materialities and waste with a conceptual understanding of manifestations of electronic waste in popular discourse. The paper draws on theories on media aesthetics, environmental communication and waste management to build an analytic framework that explores the benefits and limitations of presenting electronic waste as an aesthetic object. Empirically it engages in analyses of visual representations of electronic waste. The paper addresses the tension between aesthetic contemplation/appreciation, and critical information. It could be argued that if e-waste is to be presented and understood as an urgent topic, there might be a problem if it is portrayed as something strange, exotic or even beautiful. The concept ”toxic sublime” has been used in analyses of visual representations of pollution, and Peeples (2011: 383) argues that this construction of the toxic as sublime comes with a risk: “It may predispose people to look for toxins in the extraordinary, as opposed to on the shelves of their garages”. It could be argued that e-waste faces a similar problem. The focus on the sublime strangeness of e-waste “dumping sites” is an ineffective way of creating proximity and urgency to the e-waste problem, something that takes place somewhere else than in our homes. LeBel (2015) argues that e-waste aesthetics fails to address the temporal dimension of waste (e.g. planned obsolescence, toxicity). This paper intends to add to that argument by highlighting the tension between the closet-fill and the toxic sublime

    Health literacy among young people in Sweden: Qualitative study of the school-based health education2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The basic components of the health literacy are ability to get access to the health-related informationand understand it. For the young people the most appropriate source of information, including abouthealth, is school. Studies on health education showed that there are some problematic issues in thehealth education in the schools in Sweden which result in non-application of the knowledge by thestudents.Thus, the aim of this study was to explore and analyze school-based health education in Sweden fromthe youth perspective. The purpose of the study was to indicate the best practices of health educationwithin schools in Sweden and reveal the most problematic fields and gaps in it from the point of viewof the youth.Qualitative research was conducted for exploring the research problem. Therefor semi-structuredinterviews were held with young people aged 18-25 having studied in the schools in Sweden. The datawas analyzed within social learning theory with application of thematic analysis methodology. Besides,literature and previous researches review has been conducted as a background study.In the result of this research it was revealed that although young people are satisfied with the resultsof the health classes and show trust to the school as a source of information, some information lacksin the health education, e.g. mental health education. Besides, some issues have been noticed as to theschool environment around health education which can impede application of the health knowledge.

    Framing Terrorism in Nordic News Media: A study regarding acts of terror, involved actors, and political messages during 2014-20182019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The overall aim of this study was to investigate what common trends are within the communication of acts of terror towards the public within the Nordic countries. This was done by positioning the portrayal of terrorism within the theory of framing by Entman (1993) and the model of framing terrorism by Norris, Kern and Just (2003), which provided the following sub-topics to analyze during the research in regards to terrorism: (1) problem definitions, (2) diagnoses, (3) moral evaluations, (4) treatment recommendations, and (5) political messages.

    The method was based on quantitative content analysis, which made use of physical, categorical, and thematic distinctions surrounding the framing of terrorism. The sample size consisted out of 138 articles which were analyzed based on these distinctions. The included articles originated from the following online editorials of publisher The Local: The Local Denmark, The Local Sweden, and The Local Norway.

    Results indicated an overall more objective approach from the tabloid in regards to terrorism, meaning that mostly only facts were provided but no political messages. Biases within the articles were not directly found, though a focus on male and Muslim perpetrators in regards to acts of terror was apparent.

    Conclusions surrounding the analysis include that the editorials generally appear to be protecting the public by not mentioning too many details surrounding acts of terror. The editorials also seemingly contribute to the avoidance of radicalizing potential actors in regards to acts of terror by leaving out details such as diagnoses and moral evaluations. The editorials were furthermore found to hold an objective tone and did not subject to sensationalism.

    VEM HÖR TILL?: Eller inte?2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Over the past two decades, trends of integration processes in terms of citizens of different ethnicities, different gender and different sexual belongings, etc. has grown thanks to debates and new legislations. A marginalized and discriminated group in society such as women, immigrants, homosexuals, transsexuals and people with disabilities during this time has gained momentum in the community. The curiosity over whether these developments have changed our attitudes and values to the world around us, and if so how, is the reason for this master's thesis in disability studies.

    The Swedish development forms the basis for my belief on a younger generation of people who would be more tolerant than previous generations, in terms of what is considered to belong to the norm in our society, or not. The purpose of this study is therefore to increase knowledge about what beliefs young people today have about people with disabilities. The questions that the study is based on are: What does young people characterizes as a normal  or an abnormal human being? What thoughts do young people have about the people who deviate from the norm? What beliefs do they have regarding people with disabilities?

    To achieve the objective, the choice has fallen on a qualitative approach. Empirical data were collected through a focus group of four 18-year-olds, where they based on specific themes, have associated and discussed freely. For the processing and interpretation of the data collection, Moscovici (1984) theory of social representations has been used. By interpreting the focus groups discussions, the result shows that people with disabilities still are highly regarded and treated as people who should be "corrected" by the individual / medical model.

    “Making it work in the frontline” explains female home care workers' defining, recognizing, communicating and reporting of occupational disorders2008In: International Journal of Qualitative Studies on Health and Well-being, ISSN 1748-2623, E-ISSN 1748-2631, E-ISSN 1748-2623, Vol. 3, no 3, p. 176-184Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Epidemiological research has so far failed to explain the high incidence of occupational disorders among home care workers (HCWs) and the great differences in organizational incidence rate. A qualitative approach may contribute to a deeper understanding of work group reasoning and handling in a more contextual manner. The aim of this grounded theory study was to gain a deeper understanding of the main concern in the processes of recognizing, communicating and reporting occupational disorders among HCWs. Focus group interviews were conducted with 40 HCWs in 9 focus groups. The selected municipalities represented variations in municipality type and incidence rate of occupational disorders. Making it work in the frontline was identified as the core category explaining that the perceived work situation in home care work was the main concern but interacted with work-group socialising processes as well as with the communicability and derivability of the occupational disorder when defining and reporting occupational disorders. Complex problems could be reformulated and agreed within the workgroup to increase communicability. Described significances for reporting/non-reporting were related to financial compensation, to a part of organizational political game or to an existential uncertainty, i.e. questioning if it belonged to their chosen work and life. Our conclusion is that working situation and work group attitudes have importance for reporting of occupational disorders. To support work-related health for HCWs, integrating communication should be developed about work-related challenges in work situation, as well as about attitudes, culture and efficiency within work-group.

    Educational Integration of Asylum-seeking and Refugee Children in Sweden2013In: Migrants and Refugees: Equitable Education for Displaced Populations / [ed] Elinor L.

    Abstract [en]

    The Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden) have undergone substantial cultural and social changes due to increased migration from the 1970s onwards. While the Nordic region has become more multicultural in terms of demography, workforces and cultural practices, criticism of multicultural politics has increased. Despite different patterns of immigration in the Nordic countries, they all seem to share growing political tensions with regard to multiculturalism and migration. Many migrants have experiences of racism and discrimination (Eide & Nikunen, 2010:1). In all Nordic countries, right-wing conservative parties have strengthened their position. In Norway and Denmark, such parties have for some time been represented in the Parliament, and in Sweden, the Sweden Democrats came into the Parliament after the 2010 election. This party has on its agenda to reduce the costs for migration and dramatically change the national migration policy. They blame the government for being too permissive and generous. It is against this background the present report is written.

    Dialogens paradoxer2014Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Hösten 2010 sökte Linköpings universitet, projektet Samverkan, Integration och Kunskap, SIK-projektet, medel från Europeiska integrationsfonden till ett projekt dels med syfte att systematisera de erfarenheter och resultat som dragits av projekt inom ramen för fondens arbete, och dels erbjuda processtöd till projekten i olika former. Rapporten Dialogens paradoxer är ett led i detta arbete och bygger på data som insamlats i Integrationsfondens projektverksamhet och analyserats av SIK-projektet.

    Rapporten, Dialogens paradoxer, innehåller en bakgrundsteckning och problematisering av centrala begrepp i relation till interkulturell dialog men är framförallt en beskrivning av projekts erfarenheter av att arbeta med dialog som arbetsmetod. Det empiriska materialet i rapporten består av observationer och intervjuer från tio projekt som beviljats medel från Integrationsfonden. De deltagande projekten har arbetat med integrationsfrämjande åtgärder på olika sätt. Bland projekten återfinns de som haft dialog som huvudsakligt syfte, men även projekt som i sitt syfte angett att deras arbete bygger på andra angreppsätt. Vad dessa projekt har gemensamt är att interkulturell och eller interreligiös dialog, i någon form ändå återfinns hos alla projekt, oavsett om det är ett centralt angreppssätt eller inte. Därmed finns det i datamaterialet, exempel på dialog även om det inte är den åtgärd projektet har sökt medel för.

    Rapportens resultat inleds med en redovisning av målet för dialog som arbetsverktyg. Vidare diskuteras hinder och möjligheter för dialogarbetet. Analysen utmynnar i ett antal paradoxer som vi funnit som centrala för att förstå dialogens möjligheter och svårigheter.

    Kunskapsnivån, förståelsen och intresset för naturvård hos elever i nionde klass i Halmstad kommun: En intervjustudie2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to investigate how much knowledge ninth grade Swedish students posses on the subjects of conservation biology and biodiversity. Additionally, the students’ general interest for these subjects is examined. This is achieved using the method grounded theory. Data is collected in the form of interviews. Overall, 27 students from five different schools located within Halmstad municipality participated. The participating students statements is graded from 1-10. From interviews and grading, conclusions can be drawn. The main category indicates that the students in this study has the ability to see problems and challenges from a perspective that reflects a balance between human / nature coexistence. Societal awareness is an important part of conservation biology as this discipline integrates aspects of society, economy and political policy as well as biological aspects. Additionally, they described Swedish conservation biology examples as interesting and believed that Swedish examples should have a greater use in science lessons. The students found conservation biology fascinating and saw the need for increased education in this subject. When the students tried to define words such as “conservation biology” and “biodiversity”, they encountered some difficulties. The students did not understand these terms. These results suggest that methods for raising the understanding and knowledge of conservation biology and biodiversity are needed. Also, the students found it important to include more conservation biology in science lessons during secondary school. Thus, this study suggests that increased education of the public is needed and the expansion of conservation biology in schools is a viable approach to achieve this.

    Nyanlända unga mäns tal om maskuliniteter i relation till sex- och samlevnad2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    According to previous research, when it comes to sexuality, migration can create a risk for refugees as a result of changing norms and contexts. Therefore the purpose of the study is to identify and problematize the construction of those values and norms made visible in the way newly arrived young men talk about masculinities, in relation to sex and cohabitation. The theoretical framework is based on a hegemonic theory of masculinities and an understanding about how one as a subject position itself in relation to others. Six interviews using a semi-structured design were made with newly arrived young men at the age of 18. The interviews were analyzed using discourse as analytical method. The result identifies two different discourses. A patriarchal discourse and one equality discourse.

    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med delen är att bidra till hur skolan kan arbeta med komplexa sammanhang, människans betydelse i förhållande till lokala och globala perspektiv av påverkan och ansvar, betydelsen av hur vi tolkar kunskaper genom olika värdegrunder och vilken betydelse vi ger individens handlingar. Det konkretiseras med exempel på fördelar och nackdelar med olika val. Det förs även resonemang om hur människans handlingar bidrar till och ifall de har betydelse för en hållbar utveckling i en komplex värld.

    Deltagarna får genomföra en undervisning som bygger på livscylelanalys (LCA) och redogöra för den. Erfarenheterna används för ämnesövergripande diskussioner om hur undervisningen kan utvecklas.

    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish Rescue Agency is the central authority body that shall promote and develop the capacity for effective emergency and rescue work. Within its responsibility is support to the rescue crews with information, education and training development. The council is responsible for rescue and emergency services within council boundaries. Employees with emergency services consist of both of full-time firemen and standby rescue crew. They used to be called part-time firemen and are known today as standby rescue crew. The standby crews are most commonly employed in smaller villages. 

    Recruiting standby rescue crew has always been a problem and a challenge for small councils due to the fact that there are less people to choose from that work and live in the same place. This creates a problem of having enough staff there required by law. People who choose to become part-time firemen are dependent on their main employees to approve their needs as part-time firemen. Due to private and public employees being less tolerant to the needs required to be part-time firemen there has been a reduction in their numbers. Our main purpose is to get the standby rescue crews perspective on how the emergency services can recruit employees in the future. 

    We have chosen to use a qualitative study in the form of interviews. Our respondents are 13 part-time firemen that have worked as rescue crews between 1 and 30 years and are aged between 20 to 58. They work in four different fire stations throughout Sweden and have in common that they are all placed in small communities. We have analyzed our interviews and linked them to our theories. The result shows that the respondents are aware of the problems of having enough crew at the stations in smaller communities and they have many ideas for a possible solution to the problems. They are feeling positive that standby crews will be around in the future in one form or another.

    Research ethics within the study: Fitness professionals’ talk of health and orthorexia nervosa2014In: 4th International Conference on Qualitative Research in Sport & Exercise, 2014, p. 37-37Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Fitness center activities have gained popularity. One central role fitness staff members have is to help participants to become or maintain health and fitness. In recent years, a new phenomenon – orthorexia nervosa, which M.D. Bratman coined in the late 1990s – has emerged. He termed orthorexia as "a fixation on eating healthy food". Research has mentioned that participants in sports and fitness activities may be at higher risk of becoming orthorexic. Since the late 1990s, orthorexia has been noticed, also in Swedish newspaper articles. In so doing, the 'condition' has evolved to include fanatic exercise and eating behaviours. Fitness professionals might thus work with individuals that are considered to suffering from orthorexia. The purpose of this presentation is to elucidate and problematize ethical issues that are raised during the research that deals with personal trainers and group fitness instructors talk of health and orthorexia. The material will consist of four focus groups with 18 fitness professionals that work in Swedish fitness centers. It will be carried out as a qualitative study. This study raises ethical issues, including for instance: a) by focusing and giving attention to orthorexia, the study may contribute to categorizing "the problem", as well as enlarge it. This paradoxical situation as the aim is to contribute scientific knowledge that can problematize orthorexia; b) the challenge to manage and balance a critical approach without causing harm (e.g. introduce orthorexia to fitness professionals who might have an erroneous perspective of and/or have little knowledge about orthorexia) (cf. Halse & Honey, 2005).

    Health care professionals' attitudes and acceptance towards and experiences of digital health (eHealth) services2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Nordic countries share common interests to digitize services in the health care sector from which their eHealth strategies are a proof of. Sweden has specifically put effort on the global scheme by setting a goal of being the best in eHealth by 2025. As one of the main goals of the strategies is increasing patient empowerment, perspective of the health care professionals in this digital shift has yet remained less noticed and the concrete effects on them is still scarcely studied. This study focuses on providing the aspect of the health care professionals and how they have perceived and experienced the digital tools and eHealth services affecting their work and what attitudes they themselves have as users.                   

                This study utilized the mixed method approach and was done in collaboration with the Digga Halland project which aims towards enhancing health care workers’ digital competences and conditions to utilize eHealth. Previously collected baseline survey data from health care professionals in different municipalities in the Halland region was analysed and five health care professionals were recruited for in-depth, phenomenological interviews.

                The results of this research indicate that the use of digital tools and services is common among health care professionals at work and outside work and the workers consider their digital competence rather good. However, the interview respondents presented varying attitudes towards digital services and eHealth depending on whether the services were evaluated from a professional role or outside work role when the professionals used the services themselves. Also, the current professional position guided whether the digital shift and eHealth were experienced more positively or negatively.

    Slututvärdering av det svenska landsbygdsprogrammet 2007–2013: DELRAPPORT IV : Synteser för en hållbar landsbygdsutveckling : Utvärdering av programmets samlade effekter2017Report (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna rapport är en del av utvärderingen av landsbygdsprogrammet 2007–2013. Fyra grupper med forskare från universitet och högskolor har gjort slututvärderingen. Den publiceras i fyra delrapporter varav detta är en. Frågor som handlar om hela programmet besvaras huvudsakligen i delrapport IV. Frågor om enskilda åtgärder besvaras i de tre andra delrapporterna. En översikt av vilka frågor som besvaras i vilken rapport finns på följande sidor.

    Slututvärderingen görs för att besvara EU-gemensamma och specifika svenska utvärderingsfrågor om vilka effekter programmet har haft, i vilken utsträckning det har bidragit till att uppfylla målen och hur effektivt detta har gjorts.

    Utvärderingssekretariatet vid Jordbruksverket ansvarar för att de svenska EU-programmen där Jordbruksverket är förvaltande myndighet blir utvärderade. Det innebär att utvärderingssekretariatet beställer och genomför utvärderingar av landsbygdsprogrammet, havs- och fiskeriprogrammet samt programmet för lokalt ledd utveckling inom regionalfonden och socialfonden. Programmen utvärderas dels var för sig men också tillsammans. Utvärderingarna görs i relation till målen i programmen och de övergripande EU 2020-målen.

    De flesta utvärderingarna genomförs av externa aktörer. Vi tar hjälp av forskare för att kvalitetsgranska rapporterna innan de publiceras. I slutet av rapporterna finns ett utlåtande från granskarna. Rapporterna publiceras i en särskild rapportserie och rapportförfattarna är ansvariga för slutsatserna. Slutsatserna utgör inte Jordbruksverkets officiella ståndpunkt.
