    Medieförändring och samhällsförändring: Glasnost, massmedier och sociala rörelser2009In: Nordisk Østforum, ISSN 0801-7220, E-ISSN 1891-1773, Vol. 23, no 4, p. 355-371Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article applies Piotr Sztompka’s theory of social becoming on a discussion of media change in the Baltic region. Concentrating on three recurrent categories in the literature on the transformation of the Baltic media landscape – glasnost, mass media and social movements – the article seeks to explore how these categories contributed to shaping the current media landscape. Sztompka’s model of social becoming is an attempt at developing a tool for studying social change without being historically deterministic and at the same time getting round the dichotomisation of structure and actor in social theory. Previously, the model has been applied on analyses of social movements and revolutions. In the article, it is attempted to extend the use to the study of mass media in the Baltic states. It is argued that media change in the Baltic states was an event that drew on external factors such as glasnost and public involvement in social movements, but that the impact of these external factors cannot be separated from each other or from developments inside the media system itself

    Mediemaktens utmanare: alternativa medier och sociala rörelser2006In: Locus, ISSN 1100-3197, no 2, p. 20-28Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Linus Andersson belyser relationen mellan medier och samhällets unga medborgare i denna text. Han menar att aktivister förhåller sig till medier på ett annat sätt idag än vad de gjorde för ett fåtal decennier sedan. Nu finns mer oberoende förhållningssätt där egna mediekanaler har fått en utökad betydelse. Proteströrelser kan genom dem ta en aktiv del i den politiska offentligheten.

    No Digital “Castles in the Air”: Online Non-Participation and the Radical Left2016In: Media and Communication, ISSN 2083-5701, E-ISSN 2183-2439, Vol. 4, no 4, p. 53-62Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents results from a study of online presence in activist milieus associated with the radical left in Sweden discussed from a perspective of non-participation. With the aim to further the understanding of digital non-participation as communicative strategy in activism, it builds upon empirical findings and argues that the online practices and use of social media, as could be observed in milieus associated with the radical left, indicates active non-participation and that this, in turn, is related to the ambition to claim autonomy. The article draws from existing scholarship on critical perspectives on protest movements and social media as well as empirical examples of online content published by radical leftist groups. Furthermore, it analyses how these activities could be understood in terms of active and passive non-participation, abstention or adaptation to social media affordances, as well as implosion of the social in digital media. The findings suggest that much of the activities in the material could be described as active non-participation and that this media practice relates to ideological positioning and values in the milieu. © 2016 by the author

    There is No Alternative: The Critical Potential of Alternative Media in the Face of Neoliberalism2012In: tripleC (cognition, communication, co-operation): Journal for a Global Sustainable Information Society / Unified Theory of Information Research Group, ISSN 1726-670X, E-ISSN 1726-670X, Vol. 10, no 2, p. 752-764Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article was written in order to contribute to a discussion about a critical definition of alternative media. Asking what role alternative media could play in challenging neoliberal discourse in an age where capitalism have become immune to criticism, it elaborates on the concept of "the alternative" and the media through three sections. The first section discusses neoliberalism and the connection between neoliberal doctrine and mainstream media. This connection is described as promoting "public amnesia", financialization and economization of news journalism. The second section discusses alternative media from the perspective of new social movements and symbolic resistance, claiming that the symbolic resistance framework undermines the critical potential of alternative media, it also comments on some recent critical literature on neoliberalism and capitalism. The third section takes examples from artistic explorations of capitalism and television to propose how a distinction between social and formalist aspects of "the alternative" could inform a critical notion of alternative media.

    What’s left of the radical left online?: Absence of communication, political vision, and community in autonomist web milieus in Sweden2018In: New Media and Society, ISSN 1461-4448, E-ISSN 1461-7315, Vol. 20, no 1, p. 384-398Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents and discusses results from a study of radical left-wing activism online carried out by the Swedish Media Council, a report that suggested that the Internet (i.e. the web, web 2.0, and social media) is not a prioritized arena for propaganda and recruitment for the radical left in Sweden. The purpose of this article is to re-evaluate some of these findings and add to the discussion on online activity and connectivity in political communication online, as well as to problematize simplified notions of radicalization and recruitment to pro-violent groups. Based on a hermeneutic inquiry regarding modes of communication, representations of political visions, and community, the article shows how the sites and groups studied favor one-way communication before interactivity, that political visions are limited to short-term goals in the immediate future, and that they give very little information about their activist activities to recruit supporters. © The Author(s) 2016

    Where Technology Goes to Die: Representation of Electronic Waste in Global Television News2015Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents an analysis of television news stories, aired on global networks, which have been reporting on the problems with electronic waste (e-waste). The main objective is to present a perspective on how a “low-frequency” emergency (i.e. a lengthy and ongoing state of environmental emergency) is presented as a news-worthy issue. Drawing on literature on televised “distant suffering”, the paper engages in a multi-modal text-analysis that addresses three questions:  By what techniques is the e-waste-problem presented as an urgent issue? How is the issue addressed? What relations between the spectator and the problem on display are established through the representation? The findings shows how on-location reports from e-waste dumping sites make use of sublime imagery in the visual representations; how e-waste dumping sites are presented as strange spaces, with no clear and comprehensible history; and finally, that the representations suggests an ambivalence and uncertainty when it comes to agency (who’s responsible, what can be done?). It could be argued that these modes of representation favor a (passive) “aesthetic contemplation” of the waste, rather than possibilities for action and relief.

    Abstract [en]

    This article analyzes how electronic waste (e-waste) gets represented in television news stories. The main objective is to present a perspective on how a “low-frequency” emergency (i.e. a lengthy and ongoing state of environmental emergency) is presented as a newsworthy issue. Drawing on literature on televised “distant suffering,” the article engages in a multimodal text analysis of four newsstories about e-waste. The findings show how on-location reports from e-waste dumping sites make use of sublime imagery in the visual representations; how e-waste dumping sites are presented as strange spaces, with no clear and comprehensible history; and finally, that the representations suggest an ambivalence and uncertainty when it comes to agency (who is responsible and what can be done?). The article ends with a discussion of the implications of this mode of representation and its effectiveness in eliciting an appropriate response to the harms caused by e-waste. © 2016 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group

    Intervention and participation: A study of children’s involvement in the design of media literacy interventions2018Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents findings from a review of articles about media literacy interventions, with the purpose to discuss the value of child participation in the design of such interventions. The findings indicate that while numerous studies present evaluations of media literacy interventions, it is rare that the design processes behind these interventions are described. The most popular form of media literacy intervention is a school curriculum aimed towards tweens and teens. We argue for a closer attention to the ways in which media literacy interventions are designed in order for us to better understand when child participation can be beneficial.

    The kids will have their say?: Child participation in media literacy interventions2017In: NordMedia 2017 – Abstracts: Division 5, Media Literacy and Media Education, 2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents the findings from a scoping review of articles about media literacy interventions, with the purpose to discuss the value of having children to participate in the design of media literacy interventions.

    The findings indicate that while numerous studies present evaluations of media literacy interventions, it is rare that the design processes behind these interventions are thoroughly described. Furthermore, the review shows that even though child participation in the implementation of interventions is put forth as important by several studies, it is rare that participation in the design stage is discussed. Finally, the findings show that child participation in the design of media literacy interventions is not considered as a factor for successful media literacy interventions.

    The paper ends with a discussion of the implications of these findings for further research on child participation in media literacy interventions. It is argued that we need to pay closer attention to the ways in which media literacy interventions are designed in order for us to better understand what makes them succeed or fail. More specifically, the role of child participation in this respect – not only in terms of listening to their various media-related questions and needs, but also in the sense of actual co-design – must be further examined.

    Disaster Tourists, Smartphone Bystanders, Mediated Witnesses or Citizen Journalists? Bystander Theories and Mobile Media Practices at Accident Sites2016In: ECREA 2016 Abstact Book: Mediating (Dis)Continuities: Contesting Pasts, Presents and Futures., Prague: Czech-In , 2016, p. 176-176Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses the phenomenon of bystanders who use their smartphones to film or take photographs at accident scenes, instead of offering their help to people in need or to assist medical units. This phenomenon has been extensively discussed in Swedish news media in recent years, since it has been described as a growing problem for rescue workers, like paramedics, police and fire fighters.

    Some of the early literature in social psychology explained bystander inaction by indifference, but in the late 1960’s, the American researchers Darley and Latane showed that bystander inaction could be explained as an effect of the size of the bystander crowd. With an increase of the number of the bystanders, the chances of their involvement to help decreased.

    The past decade has seen an growing scholarly interest in “media witnessing”, both in terms of witnessing from a distance through mass media, as discussed by Peters, and “citizen camera-witnessing”, a term popularised by the works of Allan and Andrén-Papadopoulos. This literature recognizes the complexity of concepts such as active/passive and proximity/distance when it comes to media witnessing in the digital era.

    Drawn from previous research and theories, the aim of this paper is to discuss how bystander theory can be further developed to include the action of mobile media practices at scenes like accidents. From this perspective, the paper also draws attention to what could be a part of a mediated cultural trauma found in contemporary society and thereby connects to the theme of the conference.

    The paper identifies four categories in the literature that are relevant for further research into the phenomenon and to be connected to the framework of bystander theories. These categories are: “disaster tourism”, “citizen (photo) journalism”, “media witnessing”, and “digital media ethics”.

    The paper ends with a discussion about possible theoretical approaches to further empirical studies on contemporary bystander phenomena.

    Autism, new media and the transformation of "the social"2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    People with Asperger Syndrome and high function autism generally suffers from impaired social skills and a strong need for a private space for oneself. In diagnostic classifications of mental illnesses social awkwardness and a strong desire for solitude are viewed as symptoms of mental disorder and as deviances from an imagined normality.

    Based on interviews with autistic people and analysis of social interaction between them on a social media platform the aim of this paper is to investigate how new social media transform their situation in various ways. New social media, with its culture of connectivity, reshape how they relate to others and themselves and transform vulnerabilities that are always at play in encounters between human beings. At play are also changing borders between the public and the private as well as the questioning of communicative ideals based on face-to-face encounters.

    More specifically we focus on how new social media transforms: 1) vulnerabilities between people in social interaction as well as the “interaction order” that regulates this interaction; 2) what it means to be a social being – and consequently to be involuntary lonely or seeking solitude.

    Digitaliseringens framgång: En kunskapsöversikt kring digitala verktyg i biologi.2019Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Samhället blir allt mer digitaliserat och så blir även klassrummen i skolan. I den svenska läroplanen står det att en del av undervisningen ska drivas med hjälp av digitala verktyg. Syftet med denna studie är att ta reda på vad forskning säger kring digitala verktygs betydelse för att skapa ett multimodalt lärande och individanpassning i ämnet biologi. Utifrån detta skapades frågeställningen: Hur kan ett individanpassat och multimodalt lärande skapas med hjälp av digitala verktyg i biologi för årskurs F-3? För att besvara frågeställningen och nå upp till studiens syfte har vi systematiskt tagit fram, analyserat och sammanställt vetenskapliga studier om digitala verktyg. Hur individanpassning och multimodalt lärande kan skapas med digitala verktyg. Resultatet visar att pedagoger behöver besitta kunskapen kring användandet av digitala verktyg för att kunna delge kunskapen vidare till eleverna. Genom att välja ut och använda olika arbetssätt kan eleverna skapa ett multimodalt lärande och lektionerna kan bli individanpassade utefter elevernas behov. Vi valde att använda digitala verktygens funktion med inriktning på surfplatta, berättande texter, internet och virtual reality. Detta då mycket av den forskningen som fanns betonade att dessa funktioner är gynnande för elevernas kunskapsinlärning. Underlaget behandlar inga svenska studier, vilket hade behövts för att säkerhetsställa den nationella relevansen. För vidare forskning kring digitala verktygens användning i biologi kan eleverna arbeta med digitala verktyg i klassrummet. Efter användandet kan en utvärdering ske tillsammans med eleverna genom diskussion.

    Revisorers syn på marknaden för börsbolagsrevision2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    During the last decades the structure of the audit market has undergone fundamental changes as a result of the mergers and scandals that have taken place. The number of big audit firms has decreased and the remaining ones dominate even more both nationally and internationally. After the financial crisis in 2008 the European commission has published a green paper on audit policy. Among other things the market concentration is highlighted as a problem. In connection with this we have conducted a study with the following research question: How do auditors at Swedish mid tier audit firms experience the Swedish market for audits of listed companies? The study focuses on four areas, these are: historical background, the Swedish market for audits of listed companies, barriers to entry and measures. To answer the research question we have used a qualitative research method with an abductive approach. The empirical material has been gathered through interviews with auditors at different audit firms, including four personal interviews and one telephone interview. The result of the study shows that auditors at Swedish mid tier audit firms experience the Swedish market for audits of listed companies as concentrated, competitive and desirable. There is a connection between the market concentration and the historical development, the audit firms’ different focus areas and the barriers to entry. Political measures can be adopted for the market concentration but not for internal barriers of entry such as contradictions within the audit firm.

    Elefantgraviditet: En socialpsykologisk studie om adoptivföräldrars upplevelser av adoptionsprocessen2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Adoption is one of many ways to start a family on, however, it’s not so common in our society. When adoption is not usual, there is not much knowledge about the adoption process, therefore our aim was to explore the emotions that arise in the adoption process and how they are processed in both the individual and in the affinity. Our aim was to examine how the pairs and the individual dealing with emotions that arise in the adoption process, but also how the norms affect the view of adoptive parents. Then we wanted to see how the individual could go through the adoption process and if the parent group was important. We have performed four interviews with four couples that was part of the same parent group. The materials were analyzed according to three theoretical points, norms according to M. Foucault, T. Scheffs concept of shame and pride and S. Freuds defense mechanisms. By using these theories we concluded that adoption as a family formation is seen as norm-breaking, when the parents choose not to have biological children, our results also showed that parents used the defense to defend against anxiety and depressive feelings in different parts of the adoption process and that the parents' group had a significant impact.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to see if there is a relationship between health-promoting leadership and employee’s well-being. According to the hypothesis, and with knowledge in the field, individuals with high well-being should experience health-promoting leadership. The study was conducted with quantitative method using a questionnaire survey. Study participants consisted of 63 employees from health-care in southern Sweden. Results shows that there is a correlation between health-promoting leadership and employee’s well-being at the investigated workplace. The result in our study indicates that the correlation that earlier research concluded about health-promoting leadership and well-being is confirmed. However, future research should focus on making the link between health-promoting leadership and well-being clearer to gain further understanding of how the relationship works.

    En skolgård för alla?: en kvalitativ studie om elever och lärares tankarkring den fysiska aktiviteten på skolgården2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Vårt syfte med studien var att undersöka hurvida skolgården användes av elever med hänsyn till fysisk aktivitet och lek. Vi ville även försöka synliggöra vilka fenomen som låg till grund för hur eleverna använde skolgården samt att få förståelse för hur lärare och elever tänkte kring sin skolgård. Vår valda metod grundade sig i fenomenografin och datainsamlingen genomfördes genom observationer och intervjuer av elever i årskurs 4-6 samt deras lärare. Vårt resultat visade att många elever tyvärr inte är så aktiva på rasten som de skulle kunna vara. Många elever var stillastående eller utförde aktiviteter som definieras som lågintensiva. Ett intressant resultat var också att eleverna själva ansåg att de var aktiva under rasten men observationen visade det motsatta.

    Reala optioner: Vad påverkar tillämpningen i privata fastighetsbolag?2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The real estate market in Sweden in the current situation is found to be very attractive, which in return is influenced by number of elements such as interest rates, market conditions, etc. Real estate investments result in relatively large amounts, that is why investors like to be relatively sure regarding their investments, or at least that they are knowing to get their investment back in case of a sale. Real options are a complement to the calculation real estate companies does. Real options are used to take alternative solutions in regard, and also to contribute alternative values to the investment, which is mainly used if an investments outcome is not as desired. As a result to this complement to the calculation we wished to study the following: What can influence the application of real options in a real estate investing decision in private real estate companies?

    This study was done with a deductive method, and because of that a theoretical reference frame were formed, and afterwords investigate if the theoretical facts agreed with reality. To be able to compare the theoretical parts and the empirical parts, it was important that the empirical part was relevant to our subject. For the empirical fact to be as relevant as possible, this study was performed with a qualitative approach, and therefor four private real estate companies were interviewed, two bigger and two smaller. The real estate companies interviewed are active in the southern parts of Sweden.

    This study results in four conclusions drawn on the basis of the four interviewed real estate companies, regarding what can influence the application of real options in a investment decision. Three of the real estate companies finds that the risks with commercial real estates, and the external factors which influence market conditions affect their application of alternative solutions regarding their investments. All four of the real estate companies find that new incoming information and the experience, which the decision maker holds, affects application of real options. Thus, real estate companies must be able to know when and what alternative solutions to apply.

    Styr uppfattningen om dig själv : En studie i hur chefredaktörer för modemagasin arbetar med sina personliga varumäkesidentiteter2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The theory chapter is based on a model about brand identity, “Brand Identity Prism” (Kapferer, 2008, s.183). This model contains six elements which we have supplemented with theories about personal branding. This because the focus and theory on a person's brand identity is almost non-existent. The purpose of the study is therefore to examine how editors at fashion magazines are working with their brand identity in the personal brand and thereby create an understanding of the identity function. The question our study aims to answer is: "How do editors of fashion magazines work with their brand identity?"

    To meet the objective and to answer the question formulation we have chosen to use a qualitative research method with a semi-structured interview. Interviews are conducted with Charlotta Flinkenberg, Hermine Coyet-Ohlén, Mona Johansson and Per Nilsson. All interviews are presented in chapter four "Empiri" and analyzed in subsequent chapters.

    The analysis of our respondents’ answers generated a modified model of Kapferers' Brand Identity Prism (Kapferer, 2008, s.183). We argue that this modified model shows a more clear picture of each of the factors impact on the personal brand identity.

    The results of the study show that culture, with values and core values as key concepts, serve as a base for the work with the personal brand identity.

    Internation Standards on Auditing: Revisorers upplevelser om revisionskvaliténs förändring efter implementeringen av en ny revisionsstandard2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In the early 2000s several major accounting scandals occurred in the world, which led to a crisis of confidence in the audit. ISA was introduced as a response to the 2000s auditing scandals that attracted international attention and aims to improve audit quality and consistency of the world. The study's aim is to gain understanding on the experiences auditors have with the implementation of ISA by describing and analyzing the auditors' experiences of the impact ISA brought on audit quality. The problem that this study based on is the following: How do the Auditors feel that the auditing quality has changed since ISA was implemented in Sweden? We have used a qualitative method with an abductive approach where both the theoretical framework and the empirical material has been the starting point for our study. The collection of empirical data consisted of personal interviews with eight auditors. The sample of respondents included both authorized and approved auditors from both Big-4 and non-Big-4 firms. Our study demonstrates that the audit quality hasn’t necessarily increased after the implementation of ISA, which was the purpose of the new auditing standards. The study further show that ISA´s not optimal for small businesses and diversified regulatory audits of small businesses can benefit small businesses where the cost today is greater than the benefit of the new auditing standards. ISA has also meant that the audit today become more expensive to implement, because more operations are required and the documentation has become more extensive, which takes time away from other review procedures.

    SJÄLVKÄNSLA, PERFEKTIONISM, TÄVLINGSÄNGSLAN OCH SJÄLVFÖRTROENDE HOS TÄVLANDE IDROTTARE2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med föreliggande studie var att undersöka sambandet mellan självkänsla, perfektionism, tävlingsängslan och självförtroende. Dessa fenomen samspelar och ger antingen positiva eller negativa utfall för atletens prestation och känslor inför tävling. Vidare var syftet att undersöka eventuella skillnader i ovan nämnda variabler mellan individuella idrottare och lagidrottare samt ta reda på om det finns några skillnader mellan könen. En enkätundersökning genomfördes med 101 deltagare från totalt sex olika sporter. Resultaten av PSPP-R visade att individuella idrottare hade högre fysiskt självvärde och global självkänsla än lagidrottarna. En möjlig förklaring till det är att det kan krävas en starkare självkänsla för att lyckas inom individuell idrott. Vidare hade lagidrottarna, enligt MPS, högre värden av oro över misstag och tvivel rörande handling. Inom lagidrotten uppstår en konkurrenssituation då hög prestation krävs för att inte ersättas av en bättre spelare, detta kan möjligen framkalla en högre oro för misstag samt tvivel. Könsskillnaden bestod i att kvinnorna hade signifikant lägre idrottskompetens, fysiskt självvärde samt global självkänsla. Få skillnader i perfektionism förutspåddes med bakgrund av tidigare forskning men en skillnad i tvivel rörande handling påfanns då kvinnor låg signifikant högre än männen. I tävlingsängslan (CSAI-2) fick kvinnorna högre poäng i både kognitiv och somatisk ängslan medan männen hade signifikant högre självförtroende. Dessa resultat kan tolkas som att det är långt kvar till jämställdhet mellan könen inom idrotten.

    Från vision till medarbetare: En kvalitativ studie om hur medarbetare inom Halmstads kommun använder visionen Halmstad 2020 i sitt arbete2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This qualitative study aims to investigate how the employees in the munipacility of Halmstad practice the vision - Halmstad 2020 and its value foundations in their working process. We have applied theories about communication, value-based and expressive leadership, leadership in public organizations and Human Resource Management. In total, we performed two interviews with informants, and ten interviews within two different administrations in the munipacility. We have also taken note of various documents that has been the basis of our study. The results indicated that several of the respondents experienced the vision as abstract and vague. It also appeared that communication about the vision was insufficient in the two administrations. Further, the results also indicated that leadership is an important matter in the working process towards a vision. Our conclusion is that the work towards a vision is covered by good communication, a value-based/expressive leadership and that a practice of human resources management are integrated in to the organizations overall vision.

    Elevinflytande på tid: En aktionsforskningsstudie om att involvera elever i planeringsprocessen i ämnet idrott och hälsa2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Aktionsforskningens syfte är att öka elevers delaktighet i ämnet idrott och hälsa genom att involvera dem i planeringsprocessen. Detta eftersom elever sällan tillåts vara delaktiga i utformandet av undervisningen och därmed saknar förståelse för dess syfte och innehåll. Studien präglas av ett relationellt perspektiv i strävan efter visionen om En skola för alla. Tidigare studier visar fördelar med elevinflytande och skriftliga planeringar i syfte att medvetandegöra elever om sitt lärande. I ämnet idrott och hälsa beskrivs att förutsättningar för detta många gånger saknas. Två aktioner, ett träd som konkretiserar kursplanens innehåll och en planeringsmall som skapar tillfälle för eleverna att involveras, planerades och genomfördes tillsammans med en medforskande idrottslärare. Aktionerna dokumenterades genom observationer, loggböcker, två reflektionssamtal samt en intervju med idrottsläraren och två reflektionsskriv av eleverna. Resultatet presenteras i kategorierna delaktighet, planering, tid och lärarens förhållningssätt. Slutsatserna är att eleverna förvaltar möjligheter till involvering genom att lyssna på instruktioner, svara på frågor och därefter presentera egna förslag och idrottsläraren beskriver denna involvering som positiv då den ökar elevernas medvetenhet. Studiens didaktiska implikationer är att grovplaneringar bör lämna utrymme för elevinflytande samt att införandet av nya rutiner måste få ta tid.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the study is to investigate how unit managers work with sick leave due to work-related mental health in public elderly care. Based on the aim, four issues have been worked out to develop and increase understanding of the study's problem area. The methodology of the study is qualitative interviews with a hermeneutic approach and thematic analysis as a method of processing. The qualitative interviews were conducted with nine unit managers from two different municipalities in southern Sweden. The results showed that unit managers have latitude to work preventively to reduce sick leave and that differs from how rehabilitation is handled. Unit managers in elderly care have clear guidelines when it comes to rehabilitation while preventive work does not have it. Therefor, unit manager have latitude for working more prevention to reduce sick leave. All respondents understood that preventive work is an important factor in reducing sick leave, but that time and number of employees can make it difficult for preventive work to be prioritized.

    Gruppen, vardagen och matematiken: - en studie om elevers roller och arbete i grupparbete med vardagsnära problemlösning i matematik2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Matematik är ett ständigt aktuellt ämne. Enligt Skolverket ska lärare hjälpa elever att se matematiken i vardagen och ge möjligheter till grupparbeten.Tidigare forskning tyder på att elever kan ha svårigheter med vardagsnära matematik och grupparbete kan leda till en hög alternativ låg nivå av samarbete. Studiens syfte är att undersöka hur elever tillsammans kan arbeta med vardagsnära kontext inom ämnet matematik i grundskolans tidiga år. Forskningsfrågorna är: Vilka roller synliggörs i grupparbete med problemlösningsuppgifter med vardagsnära kontext? och Hur påverkas elevers arbete av den vardagsnära kontexten när de arbetar i grupp? Videoobservationer utfördes på två skolor med 11 elevgrupper. Två analyser genomfördes, en utifrån tidigare definierade roller och en kvalitativ innehållsanalys. Resultatet visar att flera olika roller uppstår under arbetet och att rolllerna förekommer i olika stor utsträckning. Vidare visar resultatet att den vardagsnära kopplingen kan fungera som en motivation eller en distraktion. Slutsatsen är att tätt samarbete kan uppstå men även att samarbetet kan ligga på en låg nivå och att den vardagsnära kontexten kan påverka arbetet positivt och negativt. Slutligen efterfrågas svensk forskning kring vardagsnära matematik, problemlösning i grupp och de kooperativa rollerna i de tidiga skolåren.

    Vardagsnära matematikundervisning: En kunskapsöversikt2016Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Ett kunnande i matematik är en viktig del för att bli en fullt deltagande individ i samhället. Lärare i de tidiga skolåren har en stor betydelse för elevernas grundläggande kunskaper och fortsatta lärande i matematik. Trots den uttalade vikten av att förstå den matematik vi möter i vardagen kan vi se hur svenska elevers resultat i anknytning till vardagsnära problemlösning försämras i internationella undersökningar. I denna kunskapsöversikt avsågs det att undersöka hur vardagsnära matematik kan används och påverka elevernas motivation och resultat. Resultatet visar att lärare har svårt för att koppla matematik och vardag fullt ut i undervisningen och att deras föreställda tillvägagångssätt och utförandet av matematikundervisningen skiljer sig. Vidare visar forskning att eleverna har svårt att finna och ta hänsyn till den matematik de möter i vardagen med skolans. Slutligen indikeras det att främst resultat men även motivation kan påverkas positivt av en vardagsnära matematikundervisning. Denna kunskapsöversikt implicerar att ytterligare forskning inom ämnet vardagsnära matematik är behövligt.

    ON THE ACQUISITION OF KNOWLEDGE AMONG ECO-INNOVATION FIRMS: THE INFLUENCE OF EXTERNAL SOURCES2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study was conducted to explore the external sources of knowledge that are present around the eco-innovation firms. Our study has focused on eco-innovations with the aim  to find sustainable solutions, leading the reduction in greenhouse gases, on the extraction of renewable energy sources, since studies have indicated a link between the industrialization and the impact on the climate. 

    The purpose formulated for this study was to explore the external sources of knowledge that are present around the eco-innovation firms. By conducting this exploratory study we will contribute to existing research by adding empirical evidence to identifying what the external sources of knowledge are and further explore what kind of knowledge eco-innovation firms gain from these external sources. The participating companies in the study was chosen since they represent Swedish firms in the development of eco-innovations with the goal to minimize the environmental impact. 

    We conducted the thesis with a qualitative approach and the empirical data was gathered from four different companies in the field of wave and tidal power. The four interviews were executed through telephone interviews with both the researches acting as interviewers. The respondents were either the CEO of the company or a board member, since these persons were most likely to possess the relevant information for this study. 

    In our study we have found the external sources of knowledge to be of significant importance to the eco-innovation firms. Based on our theoretical framework, we have identified the external assets as suppliers, customers, competitors, governmental actors and research institutions. These external sources have different importance depending on the character of the knowledge that is gained. The external sources showed to contribute with important knowledge in areas of R&D capabilities, technology development, market orientation and regulation. By assessing the external sources of knowledge firms will unlock great potential knowledge that would otherwise be very costly. A conclusion was that as eco-innovation firms acquire knowledge by their external assets in parallel there are signals, unconsciously communicated going out to the external environment. Since our study has shown that academic experience among the founders seemed to have been helping the firms in their contact with governmental actors in order to attract subsidies and in the approval process for test sites, this indicates that what seems to be communicated from within the eco-innovation firms to their external environment is certain legitimacy, credibility and reputation that strengthen the relationship with governmental actors.

    This study was performed as a multiple case study on four different eco-innovation firms working with development of technology to extract energy from renewable energy sources in terms of wave and tidal power. Our choice to only interview one person on each firm, due to a limited time frame and resources, might make it hard to generalize the findings since there is a possibility of biased data. Other limitations that make it hard to draw to much from the results are the fact of focusing on a limited area on eco-innovation in only one country, since regulations play an important role this might differ between different countries.

    Nursing students' experiences of assessment by the Swedish National Clinical Final Examination2013In: Nurse Education Today, ISSN 0260-6917, E-ISSN 1532-2793, Vol. 33, no 5, p. 536-540Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish National Clinical Final Examination (NCFE) was established in 2007 in order to examine nursing students' clinical competence upon completing their Bachelor's degree in nursing. The NCFE constitutes an innovative method of examination, divided into two parts: a written and bedside test. The aim of this study was to evaluate nursing students' experiences of being assessed by means of the NCFE, in order to obtain information that could be used to improve the examination. A survey was conducted using a questionnaire with open-ended questions concerning the written and the bedside part of the NCFE. The answers from 577 third-year nursing students were analysed using content analysis. The nursing students regarded the NCFE as promoting further learning and as an important means of quality assurance. Its comprehensive nature was perceived to tie the education together and contributed to the students' awareness of their own clinical competence. The strengths of the NCFE especially highlighted were its high degree of objectivity and the fact that it took place in a natural setting. However, the students felt that the NCFE did not cover the entire nursing programme and that it caused stress. It thus appears to be important to reconsider the written theoretical part of the examination and to standardise the bedside part. (C) 2011 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    Val av revisor i onoterade ägarledda företag: En studie om vilka faktorer som påverkar onoterade ägarledda företags val av revisor2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I den här uppsatsen har vi undersökt hur onoterade ägarledda företag väljer revisor och vad som påverkar valet av revisor i dessa företag. Tidigare forskning har visat att det finns ett forskningsgap inom små bolag och deras val av revisor. Vi har intervjuat sex företag i flera olika branscher. Företagen hade en omsättning på mellan fem och femtio miljoner. I de flesta fall initieras revisorn för företaget med en rekommendation. I nästa steg bokas oftast ett möte med revisorn där främst personkemin mellan företagaren och revisorn bedöms. De studerade företagarna är i majoriteten av fallen nyblivna företagare och vet då inte vad som kan förväntas av revisorn. Valet grundas ofta på rekommendationen tillsammans med utvärderingen av personkemin. Egenskaper som tillgänglighet, proaktivitet och generell kunskap är egenskaper som utvärderas med tiden av företagen. Besitter inte revisorn de efterfrågade egenskaperna finns risken att företagarna väljer att söka efter en ny revisor. Företagarna letar då mer aktivt efter en revisor som besitter egenskaperna. Beroende på interna och externa faktorer kan företagarna även efterfråga oberoende och specifika rådgivningstjänster. Det har identifierats som faktorer som är behovsanpassade till företagen.

    Title: Factors influencing a customer’s loyalty in B2B relationships: A qualitative study of relationship marketing

    Authors: Klara Karlström & Pia Andersson

    Advisor: Svante Andersson

    Level: Master thesis in marketing (15 Swedish credits). Spring 2014.

    Keywords: Customer loyalty, Behavior, Relationship marketing, B2B

    Purpose: The purpose of this study is to get a deeper understanding of which factors that influence a customer’s loyalty in the relationship between a supplier and a customer in B2B and how these factors are achieved?

    Frame of Reference: In the following chapter we present theory from previous research related to our research questions and purpose. First, a conceptualization of relationship marketing is outlined followed by theory regarding customer loyalty. Second, the selected factors of relationship marketing that can indicate customer loyalty are presented one by one.

    Methodology: In this chapter all the method choices to fulfill the thesis’ purpose and to answer the research questions are discussed and motivated. The choices for this study are comprehensive approach, qualitative method, a case study with one case company interviewing three informants.

    Empirical Study: In this chapter we present primary data that is collected for our study. It is collected through personal interviews with three informants at Getinge.

    Conclusion: Our conclusion is that satisfaction is more important that the other nine factors and that shared value and bonding are less important then the other factors. How they are achieved depend on the situation, the employee at Getinge and the customer in specific and there are no clear guidelines on how the should be achieved. Although there are no guidelines there are directions and the achievement of the factors are based on Getinge’s core values. The employees of Getinge are using the core values together with their individual common sense to reach the best result of customer loyalty.

    Nyckelfaktorer i en utlandsetablering: En studie som beskriver SMFs internationaliseringsprocess2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Att bedriva internationell verksamhet är ett omtalat fenomen då vi idag handlar mer med andra delar av världen, lär oss fler nya språk och reser längre bort än förut. Internationalisering har blivit allt viktigare för tillväxten av företag och det ses som en ofrånkomlig överlevnadsstrategi som bidrar till värdefulla erfarenheter och användbart lärande. Företag anpassar sin verksamhet till internationella miljöer genom ett innovativt, proaktivt och ett risksökande beteende vilket sträcker sig utanför den egna nationens gränser. De senaste decennierna har inneburit att världen dramatiskt har förändrats och därigenom även det ekonomiska samhället. Den globala marknaden har ändrat synen på landsgränser och geografiska avstånd vilket har lett till att världen numera är mer integrerad. Förändringar har också skett genom den teknologiska revolution som pågått en längre tid. Revolutionen har medfört att företag mer effektivt kan använda information, kommunikation, tillverkning och transport i arbetet med att anpassa sina produkter till utländska marknader. De företag som är mest anpassningsbara på internationella marknader är små och medelstora företag (SMF). Genom sin flexibilitet är de skickliga på att hitta nya internationella affärsmöjligheter. Dessa SMFs är ofta fokuserade på nischmarknader med specifika produkter som därigenom skapar efterfrågan runt om i världen. För små och medelstora företag är den internationella marknaden oerhört viktig och i Sverige har en av fyra SMFs internationella aktiviteter. Vårt syfte med denna studie har varit att identifiera och förstå SMFs internationaliseringsbeteende genom att besvara frågan: Hur har internationaliseringsprocessen gått till för tillverkande små och medelstora företag?

    I vår slutsats kom vi fram till att båda fallföretagen internationaliserat sig genom export och att de sedan investerat i dotterbolag på utvalda marknader. Företagen har till största del gått utomlands genom proaktiva motiv i strävan mot en högre lönsamhet. Enligt vår mening gick det inte att enhetligt beskriva fallföretagens utlandsetablering genom någon av internationaliseringsmodellerna. Vi förklarar istället processen genom att sammanlänka delar av dessa teorier till olika aspekter i deras internationalisering. Något som visade sig vara relevant i vår undersökning var betydelsen av nätverk i verksamheten och att entreprenörens roll i företaget hade stor betydelse för internationaliseringsprocessens utseende. Anledningen till att internationaliseringen skett på olika sätt har till stor del berott på den kunskap och erfarenhet som entreprenören och företaget besuttit vid dess utlandsetablering.

    High risk, high reward: En kvalitativ undersökning om hur organisationer resonerar kring möjligheter och risker vid samarbeten med influencers på Instagram2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: Målet är att undersöka hur olika organisationer resonerar i termer kring möjligheter och risker i samband med samarbeten med influencers på Instagram. Syftet med detta är att belysa vilka eventuella för- och nackdelar organisationerna ser vid samarbeten med influencers i förhållande till organisationernas egna värderingar och varumärke samt hur potentiella risker vid ett samarbete vägs in.

    Frågeställningar: 

    Hur resonerar organisationerna ifråga kring användningen av influencers i sin marknadsföring på Instagram? 

    Hur resonerar organisationerna ifråga kring varumärkesstrategier i sina samarbeten med influencers på Instagram? 

    Vilka strategier använder de aktuella organisationerna för att hantera de risker som finns i och med ett samarbete med influencers på Instagram?

    Metod och material: Kvalitativ undersökning med fyra semistrukturerade intervjuer.

    Huvudresultat: Undersökning visar på betydelsen av att organisationer använder sig av

    influencers genom samarbeten på Instagram för öka möjligheten att få ett starkare varumärke eller nå ut med sina budskap. Till sist visar undersökningen på att organisationerna är medvetna om vilka risker som finns genom samarbeten med influencers.

     Gymnasielärares responsgivning:  En studie av gymnasielärares responsgivning och deras upplevelser kring respons2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med detta examensarbete är att undersöka gymnasielärares responsgivning, finna skillnader och likheter mellan teoretiska ämnen och ämnet idrott och hälsa samt belysa lärares upplevelser kring sin egna responsgivning. Fem gymnasielärare deltog i studien och som metod har observationer och intervjuer använts. Vid observationerna användes ett idrottspsykologiskt mätinstrument, Coaching Behavior Assessment System (CBAS), och en intervjuguide utarbetades till intervjuerna. Varje lärare observerades vid sex tillfällen, tre gånger i det teoretiska ämnet och tre gånger i ämnet idrott och hälsa. Dessutom genomfördes en intervju med respektive lärare för att ta reda på hur de resonerar kring sin responsgivning samt om dessa upplevelser överensstämmer med observationsresultaten.

    Observationsresultaten visar på att individuell respons är mest framträdande i lärarnas teoretiska ämnen. Responsen i form av instruktioner och organisation används oftare i idrott och hälsa, precis som gruppresponser, även om individuell respons används mer även under dessa lektioner. Responser av lärarna som är icke lektionsrelaterade gavs vid väldigt få tillfällen under de observerade lektionerna. Observationsresultaten visar också att lärarna ger fler responser/minut i de teoretiska ämnena jämfört med idrott och hälsa.

    Intervjuresultaten tyder på att lärarna upplever individuell respons som mest avgörande av de möjliga responssätten för påverkan av elevers motivation och lärande, vilket stämmer överens med observationsresultaten, framförallt inom de teoretiska ämnena.

    “Vad ska jag skriva nu då?”: - en aktionsforskningsstudie om hur elever och lärare använder sig av metaspråklig förmåga i arbete inspirerat av genrepedagogik2016Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Tidigare forskning visar att elever kan ha svårt för att börja skriva berättandetexter och inspireras för att komma vidare i skrivprocessen. I följande studie har elevers arbete med berättandeskrivning studerats för att undersöka om genrepedagogik kan utveckla och stötta elever i sitt skrivande. Elevers kommunikation mellan varandra och med lärare var också väsentligt att undersöka för att få syn på eventuella svårigheter kring berättandetexters struktur och språkliga drag. Syftet med denna studie är därför att undersöka och utveckla kunskap om elever och lärares användning av metaspråklig förmåga i arbete med elevers egenproducerade texter, inspirerat av genrepedagogik. Tillsammans med berörda skolor identifierades ett utvecklingsområde. Detta mynnade sedan ut i en gemensam planering utifrån genrepedagogikens fyra faser som innebär att arbetet börjar i ett mer lärarlett arbete och slutar mer elevstyrt. Studien är en aktionsforskning eftersom att genrepedagogiken initierades som en ny metod på skolorna. Allt material som samlades in skedde via videoinspelning och elevtexter. Resultatet är tänkt att svara på följande forskningsfrågor: Hur kommunicerar elever och lärare samt elever och elever med varandra om berättandetexters struktur och språkliga drag? och Vilka olika kriterier som nämns i helklassamtal om berättandegenrens struktur kan utgöra ett stöd i elevers egenproducerade texter? som mynnade ut i följande kategorier: Kommunikation mellan elever och elever samt lärare och elever och Helklassamtalets betydelse för elevtexterna. En övergripande slutats av resultatet är att en kommunikation sker mellan elever och elever samt lärare och elever, de använder sig av en metaspråklig förmåga för att prata om texters struktur och språkliga drag, eleverna kan med hjälp av genrepedagogiken utveckla sitt skrivande och kan finna ett stöd i genrens typiska struktur.

    Title: The impact of unemployment - About job seekers perceptions and experiences of unemployment and health

    Supervisor: Jan Karlsson

    The aim of this study was to examine how unemployed experience their everyday life and how their health is affected by being unemployed. Another purpose of this study was toexamine which challenges the unemployed are experiencing and how they are handled. Furthermore, this study aspired to see how unemployed can learn about its health during unemployment by experiences from themselves and others. Method: This study included six semi-structured interviews with unemployed, which lasted for 30-40 minutes each. The unemployed, participating in this study had been without work for at least two months and were registered on, or in the process of registration with Arbetsförmedlingen (Employment Service, the largest agency providing jobs in Sweden). Theory: The theories that are addressing both health and pedagogy are: sense of coherence (SOC), experiential learning and communities of practice. All of these three theories have formed the core of an analyzing table, which facilitates findings of correlation between empirical data and theory, in order to enable answers regarding the purpose of this study. Results: The results that emerged from this study indicated that the health of unemployed is affected by the self-efficacy of achieving their individual goals. Expectations from the social environment also seem to be a factor to the health of the unemployed. Resources in terms of financial security and social support also showed indications of contributing to a better subjective well-being. The majority of the unemployed in this study perceived that receiving employment was the greatest challenge. However, the causes of the perceived difficulties were varying and the obstacles were individual, such as lack of resources, lack of experience/education and competition on the labor market. The interviews also revealed that several of the participants had developed new “ideas/theories” that can facilitate the management of similar situations in the future. These new ideas may have emerged either through own experience or through exchange with other people. Conclusion: The health status during unemployment seems to be dependent of the individual’s manageability of the situation, as in accordance with the theories of experiential learning and self-efficacy, depends on the individual’s previous experience and self-efficacy.Thus the likelihood of receiving employment seems to increase if the individual has a strong SOC.

    Sexualiserat våld mot kvinnor i våld i nära relationer: En kvalitativ studie om jourkvinnors erfarenheter av sexualiserat våld och pornografi2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 180 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna kandidatuppsats tar avstamp i fakta om det sexualiserade våldets omfattning. Avsikten med arbetet är att beskriva och analysera medarbetare på kvinnojourer, deras beskrivning av sexualiserat våld mot kvinnor i våld i nära relationer - hur det förstås, i vilket syfte och dess konsekvenser samt om pornografikonsumtion tycks vara kopplad till förövarens våld. Målet med uppsatsen är utöver redovisning av materialet även att genom genusvetenskapliga teorier och hermeneutisk kunskapssyn reflektera över varför sexualiserat våld mot kvinnor i nära relationer sker. Uppsatsens metoder är av kvalitativ karaktär och datainsamlingen framkommer genom semistrukturerade intervjuer. De teoretiska utgångspunkterna arbetet använder sig av är; genussystem, det idealiska offret

    – det motspänstiga offret, hegemonisk maskulinitet och våldets normaliseringsprocess. Uppsatsens resultat pekar på att våldet på samtliga kvinnojourer är omfattande och betydande. Resultat visar också att våldet beskrivs som främst uppdelat i två dimensioner: psykiskt och fysiskt som i grunden har sitt ursprung i makt och kontroll. Våldsdimensionerna beskrivs som återkommande i syfte att kontrollera och kränka sin partner som leder till att den utsatta partnern lyder, känner osäkerhet och tvivlar på sitt omdöme. Vidare visar resultaten att sexualiserat våld mot kvinnor i nära relationer beskrivs som svårpersonligt och rationaliserat. Det vill säga att våldet är mycket svårt att prata och berätta om. Detta grundar i stigmatisering av våldet och ger konsekvens av skuld och skamkänslor. Resultaten pekar även på olika sätt för kvinnor att hantera våldet hon utsätts för – hur våldet normaliseras för kvinnan och -eller visar motmakt mot våldet. Pornografikonsumtion tycks inte leda till definitivt våld. Däremot visar resultatet att pornografikonsumtion kan medföra svårigheter till relationen. Som att porren väljs före partnern och att konsumenten kan finna inspiration från porren samt genom olika utövande tvinga sin partner till olika handlingar, hämtade från porrens innehåll. Diskussionen och slutsatserna diskuterar de presenterade resultaten på en mer övergripande nivå och i relation till uppsatsens syfte och frågeställningar

    Kravprofilens roll vid rekrytering: En kvalitativ studie av en rekryteringsprocess med fokus på kravprofilen2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of this study has been to examine how a recruiting process may work in a highly skilled industry and how the involved Human Resources (HR) personnel describe it. Of particular focus was how the competence profile was used throughout the recruiting process. To meet this objective, two research questions were developed: How may a recruiting process work? How may the competence profile be used during a recruiting process and what obstacles and opportunities may consequently present themselves.

    The study was conducted utilizing the qualitative method. The results are based on seven semi-structured interviews conducted at an HR department at a highly skilled organization. We have used established theory about the recruiting process, competence profile, about decision-making and the various perspectives on recruiting.

    The results show that the recruiting process generally is a formalized process and contains pre-defined steps and various selection methods. In the end, the decision is made based on a comprehensive and all-inclusive review of the applicant. The study also shows that the competence profile is considered valuable, although not always of a top priority. Moreover, the study shows that the competence profile enables the identification of the recruiting need, facilitates matching of applicants, and is used to support decisions throughout the process. Noted obstacles were time constraints, an already biased view due to the previous employee which held the position, and that a favorite candidate existed early on in the process.

    Skapandet av Vi och Dom: Identitetskonstruktioner inom EU:smigrationsdiskurs 2011-20162016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Globala konflikter har under 2010-talet utmanat den Europeiska Unionen på många sätt ochdärmed har migrationen blivit ett prioriterat område på den europeiska agendan. Dennauppsats studerar EU:s migrationsdiskurs under tidsperioden 2011-2016 för att analysera deneuropeiska identiteten och hur vi och dom konstrueras inom diskursen. Uppsatsen tar sinutgångspunkt i tidigare forskning inom området och de teoretiska och metodologiska ramverksom ligger till grund för uppsatsen. Studien bygger på en modernistisk identitetsteori medfokus på antagonism och utgår från diskursanalys som metodologiskt tillvägagångssätt medinfluenser från diskursteoretikerna Ernest Laclau och Chantal Mouffe samt av andradiskursiva analysmodeller. De empiriska materialet studeras i form av migrationspolitiskadokument från EU-kommissionen och analyseras utifrån teori och metod.Sammanfattningsvis avslutas studien med resultatet att EU inte konstruerar ett tydligt vi menatt det finns flertalet tydliga dom, där vissa ses som en tillgång för EU och andra somantagonister.
