    High-Tech Low-Cost Solutions. Perspectives for Nordic Companies2016Rapport (Övrig (populärvetenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [en]

    Nordic companies often produce high-value products with a focus on design and technology. While attractive and often innovative, they are also expensive and tend to target the needs and resources of the wealthy. In a global economy where emerging markets are of growing importance, Nordic companies frequently struggle to adjust products and services to the growing middle- and low-income markets. Meeting theneeds and aspirations of these segments calls for frugal solutions. In other words, solutions that focus more on ‘need to have’ as opposed to ‘nice to have’ — and with target price points and features that match middle- and low-income customers.

    Frugal products are often associated with simple and low-tech solutions. This, however, is not always the case. In fact, some of the most advanced services in the world — such as Google search or GPS navigation — cost little or nothing if you, like billions of people from Mumbai to Nairobi do, have a smartphone and access to the Internet. Not only are services such as Skype free, but they also enable other services to bedelivered in much more advanced ways. In this way, technology such as the mobile Internet breaks the conventional link between high cost and high value to end users. 

    For the most part, Nordic companies cannot compete with low-cost, low-tech products. However, they could compete with high-tech-low-cost solutions (HT–LC). Nordic companies can draw on deep insights and advanced scientific knowledge based on years of experience. Playing off technical trajectories and new infrastructures, Nordic companies are in a unique position to create solutions that are highly sophisticated and offer high utility to the end consumer at much lower prices than what has conventionally been possible. This report will look at what it takes to make this possible.

    Popularizing the Internet: Traveling Companions Supporting the Good News2015Ingår i: Nordicom Review, ISSN 1403-1108, E-ISSN 2001-5119, Vol. 36, nr 2, s. 157-171Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In popular science and technology writing, “boosterism” is prominent. Writers overwhelminglydescribe science and technology in enthusiastic terms, thereby promoting the deficitor Public Appreciation of Science and Technology model (PAST). A crucial aspect ofthe PAST model is its pro-innovation bias: writers enroll chaperones in the texts, such asspokespersons, users, celebrities, witnesses, experts, and authorities, to support their claims.Both “boosterism” and pro-innovation bias constrain the public’s critical understanding ofscience and technology. This study includes a detailed exploration of pro-innovation bias inthe popularization of the Internet in the Norwegian press and how journalists use chaperonesto support their claims. The author demonstrates that, in popularizing the Internet, proinnovationbias manifests several other biases, such as individual-praise, pro-technology,individual-blame, technology-blame, and source biases

    Chinese Ways of Being Muslim: Negotiating Ethnicity and Religiosity in Indonesia2017 (uppl. 1st)Bok (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Many recent works on Muslim societies have pointed to the development of ‘de-culturalization’ and ‘purification’ of Islamic practices. Instead, by exploring architectural designs, preaching activities, cultural celebrations, social participations and everyday practices, this book describes and analyses the formation and contestation of Chinese Muslim cultural identities in today’s Indonesia. Chinese Muslim leaders strategically promote their unique identities by rearticulating their histories and cultivating ties with Muslims in China. Yet, their intentional mixing of Chineseness and Islam does not reflect all aspects of the multilayered and multifaceted identities of ordinary Chinese Muslims – there is not a single ‘Chinese way of being Muslim’ in Indonesia. Moreover, the assertion of Chinese identity and Islamic religiosity does not necessarily imply racial segregation and religious exclusion, but can act against them.      The study thus helps us to understand better the cultural politics of Muslim and Chinese identities in Indonesia, and gives insights into the possibilities and limitations of ethnic and religious cosmopolitanism in contemporary societies.

    Tourism in Southeast Asia: Challenges and New Directions2009Samlingsverk (redaktörskap) (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Tourism in Southeast Asia provides an up-to-date exploration of the state of tourism development and associated issues in one of the world’s most dynamic tourism destinations.

    The volume takes a close look at many of the challenges facing Southeast Asian tourism at a critical stage of transition and transformation, and following a recent series of crises and disasters. Building on and advancing the path-breaking Tourism in South-East Asia, produced by the same editors in 1993, it adopts a multidisciplinary approach and includes contributions from some of the leading researchers on tourism in Southeast Asia, presenting a number of fresh perspectives.

    The volume combines introductory material with an in-depth examination of anthropological writing on Southeast Asian tourism followed by case studies dealing with as diverse issues as globalization, terrorism, ‘romance tourism’ and ecotourism. A sister volume, Heritage Tourism in Southeast Asia, is in preparation.

    Internet, Governance and Democracy: Democratic Transitions from Asian and European Perspectives2006Samlingsverk (redaktörskap) (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Insights from leading specialists in Internet studies allow unique comparative perspectives on the use of the Internet and its importance for political processes. The book aims at an understanding of the challenges of democratic transitions that the Internet poses in both Asia and Europe, using Denmark as an example of the latter region.

    The Internet and other modern information and communication technologies challenge political thinking, systems and processes all over the world. Whether or not they will lead to more transparency in policy-making and governance – or enhance democratic participation and empowerment – they have certainly provided new opportunities for politicians, governments and civil society.

    The Internet acts as a frontrunner of globalization and forces policy-makers, governments and civil society alike to consider how to use the Internet.

    Mining in the Nordic Countries: A comparative review of legislation and taxation2015Bok (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The last few years have seen a lot of activity within the Nordic mining industry. New mines have opened, but there have also been cases of bankruptcies. Heightened activity has in turn led to discussions on the role of legislation and taxation in ensuring that mining contributes to sustainable development. At the same time, a number of voluntary sustainability initiatives have appeared.

    For historic reasons, the Nordic countries share a lot of similarities with regards to legislation. And not least with regards to environmental laws, the EU has contributed to further harmonisation, even among the non-member states Iceland and Norway. Yet important differences exist. Legal revisions are sometimes the result of much-publicised problems, so experiences in each country plays an important role.

    An overview of taxation also indicates both similarities and differences.

    Experiences of inclusion and welfare services among Finnish Sámi with disabilities: Project report2017Rapport (Övrig (populärvetenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [en]

    This report is the fourth report out of five within a Nordic project about the living conditions of persons with disability and of Sami descent, the indigenous people in Scandinavia, compared with the general population. It is an important contribution to increased knowledge about the prerequisities for good living conditions for people with disabilities and their enviroment in the Sami regions in Finland.

    There is a lack of knowledge about living conditions for people of Sami background with disabilities. Furthermore there is also very little knowledge about conditions for social inclusion for this group across the whole of the Sápmi geographical area. This was acknowledged by The Norwegian Directorate for Children, Youth and Family Affairs (Bufdir). For this reason the Nordic Welfare Centre was enlisted by Bufdir to coordinate a Nordic project on the situation of people of Sami background with disabilities. 

    The Nordic project is going on from 2014 through 2017. A central part of the project for The Nordic Welfare Centre is to coordinate five different national studies (two from Norway, two from Sweden and this report from Finland). An important element of the work is to make sure the studies are rooted in the Sami environment and that the results are usable in the context of Sami communities. The aim of the project is to map out this sector's living conditions within areas such as work, education, accommodation, social and health services in the individual countries as well as in the entire region. 

    Results from the Nordic project are intended to contribute to create good conditions to encourage political decisions concerning the group's rights and public services, amongst other things. The project will present information on how the countries live up to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and how this work can be followed up in the future. 

    The Nordic Welfare Centre is an institution under the Nordic Council of Ministers. Our mission is to enhance social policy work in the Nordic countries through education, communication, research and development, networking and international co-operation.

    The new nordic education for sustainability: Inspiration from an innovative course in further adult education2017Rapport (Övrig (populärvetenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [no]

    The network has for several years worked actively on finding good education methods for sustainable development with adults as a target group. Actors and organisations working with adult learning in different sectors meet and inspire each other across the sectors of education, institutions, organizations and age groups towards a good and sustainable community.

    In collaboration with NVL and the Nordic Council of Ministers, a Nordic project group was given an opportunity to start two courses promoting sustainable development. The first was a pilot project (2014/15), and was followed by a course (2016), where the pilot’s experience was implemented.

    In this publication, you can read about the course program, the participants’ experiences, the evaluation of the program, and be inspired by learning examples delivered by the course participants.

    Walking a Tightrope: Defending Human Rights in China2014Bok (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    How do Chinese people defend human rights in China without going to jail? How can they seek justice without the state hitting back at them? The human rights situation in China is not without its challenges but even so the last decades have seen marked improvements. Even so, much of the international attention on the issue is focused on human rights violations and the suppression of dissent; it is rare to find accounts of people inside China working on human rights who are not being harassed or put into jail.

     In what is probably the first Western book to see the Chinese human rights issue solely from a Chinese perspective, Walking a Tightrope gives voice to nine Chinese human rights defenders, describing their challenges, setbacks and progress. Although not denying the fact that human rights are often violated in China, the book points out that there are positive stories and that things are improving in certain areas. That said, many of the improvements described by the interviewees are minor (especially seen with Western eyes), and the book clearly shows that, right now, it is especially hard to promote human rights in China.

     What is essential to understand, however, is Chinese law offers extensive protection of human rights in almost every aspect of social life. What then many of the interviewees in this book are trying to do is to secure implementation of the law. This is the really hard part of their work. In this book they describe how and why hey do it – defending human rights, Chinese style.

    Young People, Vulnerabilities and Prostitution/Sex for Compensation in the Nordic Countries: A Study of Knowledge, Social Initiatives and Legal Measures2019Bok (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    What do we know about the extent of young people’s experiences of sex for compensation in the Nordic countries? Are such experiences addressed by social initiatives and how do legal measures affect them? This report is based on country studies focusing on knowledge about sex for compensation among young people in the Nordic countries. The five country studies show how research on the extent of, and the motivations and conditions for, young people selling sex in the Nordic countries is rather scarce and that there are few social initiatives that target young people specifically. The interviews with service providers and the literature reviewed point to individual vulnerabilities related to young people’s experiences of compensational sex. In order to develop preventive measures more knowledge on structural factors related to experiences of compensational sex is needed.

    Becoming a Journalist: Journalism education in the Nordic countries2016Samlingsverk (redaktörskap) (Övrig (populärvetenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [en]

    “This edited volume addresses journalism education as a central component of journalistic professionalization, making it necessary to understand what is a crucial period in most future journalists’ lives. Nowadays, journalism scholars are realizing the need for more sustained, in-depth and critical studies of why students embark on such degrees, how they develop their professional views and practices at universities, how the educational curricula of journalism programs match the needs of the labor market, and also, what the news industry thinks about journalism courses and their graduates. This volume addresses all of these important questions in-depth, with admirable attention to different elements that may explain all these issues.

    The comparative perspective of looking at the Nordic countries breaks new ground considering the paucity of comparative studies on journalism education in specific media systems. The authors that take part of this book employ an array of quantitative and qualitative approaches to study the field of journalism education, providing a rich account that, no doubt, will be essential reading for students, researchers, the media industry, policy-makers and all people interested in journalism education and professionalization.”

    Beyond the Singapore Girl: Discourses of Gender and Nation in Singapore2013Bok (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The branding of Singapore International Airlines with the image of a beautiful, petite and servile ‘Oriental’ woman dressed in figure-huggingsarong-kebaya is one of the world’s longest running and most successful advertising campaigns. But this image does not simply advertise a service; it is part of a global and national regime of symbolic constructions of gender that today is seen as outdated and sexist, and bearing little relation to modern Singapore where women have good access to education and increased life choices resulting from engagement in the wage economy. The nation’s economic success has been a force for their liberation. One catastrophic consequence of women’s changed lives has been the plunge in fertility rates.

    Singapore has one of the world’s lowest despite energetic government campaigns encouraging women to have more babies – and men to be more ‘masculine’. The failure of these campaigns and rethinking of the Singapore Girl highlight a key premise of this book: there are limits to the power of discursive constructions of gender in the national interest.

    Cambodia's Economic Transformation2011Samlingsverk (redaktörskap) (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    From 2002, Cambodia underwent a visible economic transformation driven largely by such external factors as increased Chinese demand for primary commodities and a strong international demand for Cambodian garments. Apart from dramatic rates of economic growth, the boom involved the disappearance of forests and the decline of logging, the inflow of Chinese investment and the rise of indigenous capital, and the increased significance of remittances from garment workers and labour migrants. In addition, the impact of government policies on land registration and concessions transformed relations of production and, with them, the socio-economic and political environment in rural and urban Cambodia.

    Cambodia’s Economic Transformation examines the political economy of the Cambodian boom, analysing the changing structure of the economy, the relationship between state and market, and outcomes for the poor. Not least, it focuses the role of the state in facilitating and controlling the market, and the way that this has affected the life chances of the poor. In so doing, it situates Cambodian experience within key debates in the wider political economy of Eastern Asia, scrutinizing the relationship between class formation, structures of governance and resource distribution. The analysis gives rise to a deeper understanding of the nature of the market as it has emerged in Cambodia over the past decade, and the prospects for how much the poor might be able to constrain tendencies towards a disproportionate accumulation of wealth by the Cambodian elite.

    Unga vuxna med nedsatt arbetsförmåga: En beskrivning av trygghetssystemen2015 (uppl. 100)Bok (Övrig (populärvetenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [sv]

    Fokus i den här delen av projektet Unga in i Norden – psykisk hälsa, arbete, utbildning är de olika ekonomiska och sociala trygghetssystem riktade till unga som på grund av långvarig psykisk ohälsa inte kan försörja sig genom lönearbete. Med unga avses personer i åldrarna 19 till 29 år. Rapportens innehål lär en systematisk genomgång av de nordiska ländernas ekonomiska och sociala trygghetssystem riktade till denna grupp unga.De fem nordiska länderna disponerar i bokstavsordning framställningen i rapporten och följande frågeställningar har varit vägledande:

    1. Vilka konkreta delar av de ekonomiska och sociala trygghetssystemen är aktuella för gruppenunga med psykisk ohälsa?

    2. Vilka regler styr trygghetssystemen?

    3. Hur administreras trygghetssystemen?

    4. Hur ser det ekonomiska stödet ut?

    5. Hur ser eventuellt övrigt stöd ut (tjänster, insatser, aktiviteter)?

    Källmaterial till rapportens innehåll är hämtat från officiella hemsidor från de departement och myndigheter som ansvarar för systemen ifråga. Representanter från samma departement ochmyndigheter har bidragit med expertis och även faktagranskat texten.Den systematiska genomgången visar att samtliga nordiska länder har välfärdsystem riktade till gruppen unga med psykisk ohälsa. Danmark, Finland, Island, Norge och Sverige har alla socialpolitiska ambitioner om en välfärdsstat där det offentliga har ett ansvar för medborgarnas välfärd, i de fall ohälsa hindrar människor från att försörja sig genom lönearbete. De olika systemen i de olika länderna skiljer sig dock åt i sin uppbyggnad. Exempelvis gäller detta den så kallade inkomstbortfallsprincipen. Den är grundprincip i samtliga länders system, med undantag för Danmark. Det danska systemet är ett flat-ratesystem utan någon inkomstrelaterad del. Principen att beräkna ersättningen på grundval av tidigare arbetsinkomst får särskilda verkningar för gruppen eftersom de i många fall saknar tidigare arbetsinkomst, eller har en mycket begränsad sådan. Många unga tillerkänns garantiersättning och den inkomstbortfallsprincip som var tänkt som grundregel blir inte relevant för dem. Finland och Island har två parallella ekonomiska och sociala system riktade till gruppen unga med långvarig psykisk ohälsa. I Danmark, Norge och Sverige har nyligen genomförda lagändringar förändrat systemens funktionssätt. Dessa faktorer sammantagna gör att systemen är svåra att överblicka, vilket får till konsekvens att det blir svårt för gruppen unga med psykisk ohälsa att ta tillvara sina medborgerliga rättigheter. Med ovanstående två slutsatser som bas är den ekonomiska och den demokratiska aspekten av systemens funktionssätt angelägna teman att utforska vidare i projektets andra delstudie, som publiceras i november 2015.

    Sjukskrivning och genus i Norden: Vad vi vet och vad vi inte vet2016Artikel, forskningsöversikt (Övrig (populärvetenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [sv]

    Nordens välfärdscenter projekt Sjukskrivning och genus i Norden - vad vi vet och vad vi inte vet ärett uppdrag från Nordiska ministerrådet för social- och hälsopolitik. Projektets huvudsakliga syfteär att göra en nordisk forskningssammanställning om den psykiska hälsan utifrån ett genusperspektiv.

    Könsskillnader i sjukfrånvaron förekommer, om än i varierande grad, i samtliga nordiska länder.Avsikten med forskningsgenomgången är att få till stånd en bättre jämförande översikt över politikenpå området. Detta kan underlätta erfarenhetsutbyte om effekter av politik samt främjaytterligare samarbete på området. Det är vår förhoppning att rapporten ska bidra till en ökadkunskap om sambanden mellan psykisk ohälsa, arbetsliv och sjukfrånvaro i Norden och i vad månförekomsten av skillnader i sjukskrivningar på grund av psykisk ohälsa skiljer sig åt mellan ländernasamt huruvida det finns könsskillnader som i detta avseende bör beaktas.

    Vi hoppas att kartläggningen kan leda till fördjupade nordiska studier och insatser, både på gemensamnordisk nivå och i respektive land.

    Trade and Society in the Straits of Melaka: Dutch Melaka and English Penang, 1780-18302006Bok (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This pioneering work from a member of Malaysia’s new generation of historians is a tale of two very different cities, the one with a trading heritage dating back centuries, the other a new creation spawned by the declining fortunes of the once mighty Dutch East India Company. Melaka was an important commercial entrepot on the west coast of the Malay Peninsula long before it fell to Portuguese forces in 1511, but thereafter began an extended process of decline that would continue after the Dutch conquest of the city in 1641. Penang became a significant port after 1786 when ‘country traders’ created a base on the island to defy the Dutch monopoly, although it was quickly overshadowed by Singapore after the founding of a British settlement there in 1819.

    Drawing on a large volume of archival records, many of them not used by earlier historians, Trade and Society in the Straits of Melaka examines the social and economic fabric of these two port cities, the one very much a Dutch town and the other British. Along the way, the author deals with a number of key questions. Did colonial port cities have a different character and structure from indigenous towns? Did the administrative style of the Dutch and English differ substantially? What was the economic basis of Melaka and Penang? What was the effect of the European presence on indigenous trade and society? The answers involve considerations of urban morphology, demographic characteristics and migration, property rights, and slave ownership. The author also provides a detailed account of shipping in the Straits of Melaka, and discusses how this information contributes to debates concerning the decline of the region’s ‘Age of Commerce’ in the face of imperialist competition.

    Unge utenfor utdanning og arbeid i Norden: Utfordringer, innsatser og anbefalinger2015Bok (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [no]

    Barn og unge som vokser opp i Norden, skal ha gode vilkår for sine liv og gode muligheter for deltakelse på sentrale samfunnsarenaer. Unge generelt, også unge i Norden, står overfor mange utfordringer på sin vei fra ung til voksen. En hovedutfordring er overgangen fra utdanning til arbeidsliv. Rapporten ser på politikk, tiltak og innsatser i Norden som omfatter eller er rettet spesifikt mot unge med mål om å øke gjennomføringen i utdanningssystemet og sikre inkludering i arbeidsmarkedet. Her ser vi også på hvorvidt de eksisterende innsatsene og tiltakene kan sies å virke – og litt på hva som eventuelt virker og ikke virker. Rapporten munner ut i en rekke anbefalinger for videre forskning og politikk på feltet.

    Adapting to, or mitigating demographic change? National policies addressing demographic challenges in the Nordic countries2015Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The Nordic countries continue to experience the impact of the long term demographic trend of migration from rural areas and smaller communities to larger towns and cities. In addition, the share of the Nordic population aged over 65 is increasing. Ageing population is especially pronounced in areas outside the largest city-regions. Depopulation and having relatively fewer people in working age is expected to have a severe impact on many Nordic municipalities causing additional problems with the future provision of welfare services. In addition, these municipalities face challenges when it comes to accessing the labour force especially in the welfare sector. Moreover, while population decrease imposes particular challenges to rural and peripheral areas, the large city-regions in the Nordic countries are experiencing significant population growth, bringing an altogether different set of challenges.

    Abstract [sv]

    Urbanisering, rörlighet och åldrande befolkning präglar den demografiska utvecklingen i de nordiska länderna. Många kommuner och samhällen – särskilt de som ligger långt från större städer – påverkas starkt av dessa förändringar och står inför stora utmaningar när det gäller till exempel kompetensförsörjning och tillgång till både offentlig och privat service. De nordiska länderna delar dessa utmaningar och därför finns det ett stort intresse av att lära av varandra i Norden när det gäller hur utmaningarna ska hanteras.

    WHEN SOMEONE HAS TO TAKE CHARGE: Youth and Mental Health: Challenges, Policy and Collaboration in Iceland,the Faroe Islands and Norway2016 (uppl. 1000)Bok (Övrig (populärvetenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [en]

    This report is the result of a collaboration between the Nordland Research Institute and the Nordic centre for Welfare and Social Issues project, Youth in the Nordic Region - Mental Health, Employment and Education.

    The report is an abbreviated version of the research report, When Someone has to Take Charge. Youth and Mental Health: Challenges, Policy and Collaboration in Iceland, the Faroe Islands and Norway.

    The theme of the study is young people in vulnerable situations in terms of education, work, participation and mental ill-health. The report also examines how public agencies and services in the three countries describe challenges, initiatives andmeasures relating to this group. The work is based on qualitative interviews held inIceland, the Faroe Islands and Norway.

    The researchers have interviewed 22 young men and women who, for various reasons, are at risk of exclusion from important societal arenas. They also interviewed 58 professionals working with the target group at national, municipal and projectlevels.

    Japanese Education and the Cram School Business: Functions, Challenges and Perspectives of the Juku2006Bok (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Cram schools (in Japanese called juku) are often mentioned in passing as a phenomenon functioning mainly to exacerbate competition and pressure on children, but no thorough study has been carried out of their function and types. It is the author’s intention to contribute to a more nuanced understanding of this feature of education, which is not only important in Japan but increasingly so in other parts of the world as well.

    Roesgaard’s major conclusion is that a clear distinction between different types of juku is necessary so that their function as well as merits and demerits can be properly assessed. Although juku have often been decried as enhancing competition in the Japanese system of schooling, this study also provides evidence that without them, the regular system of schooling would not be able to function. In the modern polarized society that is Japan, juku are taking on a variety of new functions that this study aims to uncover.

    Part one sets the scene and presents a typology of juku. There follows a general description of the actors, juku, as well as descriptions of existing juku from the identified categories based on personal interviews. The final part discusses implications of the existence of juku in terms of political measures, their relation to particular new features of Japanese education (e.g. the 5-day school week) and the expenses and gains related to the juku.

    Abstract [en]

    Taking its point of departure in the personal story of Nalini, this article examines highly skilled Indian women’s experiences of moving back to India after years of working and living with their families abroad. The article touches on themes of gender relations, family commitments, career opportunities, and social and cultural conservatism within the context of recent waves of return migration to Bangalore, a prominent hub in the imaginary of a “new” globalising India. Tracing Nalini’s story in and out of states of depression, the article points to ways in which returnee women find their own, at times, unexpected ways of dealing with the upheavals of return migration.

    Abstract [en]

    This article peers into the anxieties of the democratic process in post-conflict Nepal. Today, while the recent elections gave Nepal’s politicians a new mandate to finish the constitution-drafting process, the negotiations surrounding the troubled issue continue. Despite the established formal democratic institutions and procedures, authoritarian legacies and pre-democratic political practices, values and attitudes co-exist with the new democratic establishment with negative consequences for governmental stability. The article shows how the existing Nepalese political culture reflects a contradictory mix of deference to senior leaders, but also distrust of their authority, and a culture of confrontation rather than compromise.

    A scoping review: Well-being among indigenous children and youth in the Arctic – with a focus on Sami and Greenland Inuit2018Övrigt (Övrig (populärvetenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [en]

    Children and young people from the Inuit and Sami populations in the Nordic countries can be identified as a vulnerable group. Young Sami and Inuit experience a higher degree of violence, abuse, suicidal thoughts and suicide rates compared to their peers in the majority populations in the Nordic countries. Their living conditions are in most cases influenced by a limited access to welfare benefits such as the healthcare system, social services and educational opportunities. Career prospects in the Arctic region are also narrow compared to the more densely populated and central regions in the Nordic countries. In order to understand and act upon the challenges the populations face, an in-depth and systematic review of the existing literature and experiences of children’s and youth’s well-being and their existing living conditions in the Arctic Region is essential.

    Political Scandal Tests Trust in Politicians: The Case of the Finnish Minister Who Resigned Because of His Text Messages2014Ingår i: Nordicom Review, ISSN 1403-1108, E-ISSN 2001-5119, Vol. 35, nr 2, s. 3-16Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Political scandals have been observed to be increasingly common everywhere. In April 2008, the Finnish Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mr. Ilkka Kanerva, was compelled to resign because of the sensation arising from the enormous number of suggestive text messages that he had sent to a young female erotic dancer. During the scandal, the media followed this episode intensively. The present article considers what kinds of qualities for political leadership the media called for during this scandal and how these qualities were justified. The paper is based partly on quantitative but mostly on qualitative content analyses of the four most read newspapers in Finland. The results show five categories, the qualities being professional competence, personal characteristics and behaviour, trustworthiness, maintenance of relations and communication skills. The results show that the require-ments imposed by the media are high, but that evaluation of professional competence is still crucial. Further, the occurrence of a scandal seems to trigger discussions on trust in politicians.

    Saying the Unsayable: Monarchy and Democracy in Thailand2010Samlingsverk (redaktörskap) (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The Thai monarchy today is usually presented as both guardian of tradition and the institution to bring modernity and progress to the Thai people. It is moreover seen as protector of the nation. Scrutinizing that image, this volume reviews the fascinating history of the modern monarchy. It also analyses important cultural, historical, political, religious, and legal forces shaping the popular image of the monarchy and, in particular, of King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

    In this manner, the book offers valuable insights into the relationships between monarchy, religion and democracy in Thailand – topics that, after the September 2006 coup d’état, gained renewed national and international interest. By addressing such contentious issues as Thai-style democracy, lése majesté legislation, religious symbolism and politics, monarchical traditions, and the royal sufficiency economy, this volume will be of interest to a broad spectrum of academics, journalists and other interested readers outside academia.

    Abstract [en]

    This edited volume, including contributions from some of the leading scholars in the field, addresses the challenges, obstacles and opportunities for increased women’s political representation in Thailand.

    Will Thai politics be different with an increase in the number of women politicians? What are the possibilities for Thai women to take proactive initiatives that aim to transform Thai politics into being more gender aware and equal? In seeking to address these and related issues, the analysis brings together a complex interplay of factors, such as traditional Thai views of gender and politics; the national and local political context of the new Thai constitution of 1997; and recent experiences of selected women politicians in the legislative and executive branches of Thai government.

    Women’s Political Participation and Representation in Asia: Obstacles and Challenges2008Samlingsverk (redaktörskap) (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Prominence has often been given to the lives and activities of such top female leaders in Asia as Indira Gandhi and Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. Indeed, the ability of a small elite of highly educated, upper-class Asian women to obtain the highest political positions in their country is unmatched elsewhere in the world and deserves study. But, for those interested in a more detailed understanding of how women strive and sometimes succeed as political actors in Asia, there is a marked lack of relevant research as well as of comprehensive and user-friendly texts.

    Aiming to fill the gap is this timely and important study of the various obstacles and opportunities for women’s political participation and representation in Asia. It is a singularly coherent, comprehensive and accessible volume, even though it brings together an array of prominent European and Asian academicians and researchers working in this field.

    The book covers a wide range of Asian countries, offers original data from various perspectives and engages the latest research on women in politics in Asia. It also aims to put the Asian situation in a global context by making a comparison with the situation in Europe The volume will be invaluable in women’s studies internationally and especially in Asia.

    Abstract [en]

    An imperative element of the academic process is publishing research findings. Yet this is becoming increasingly difficult for authors to achieve as publishers are presented with growing numbers of manuscripts, decreasing library sales, and stronger demands on profitability.

    This book aims to maximise would-be authors’ chances of success in the race to get published. The key concerns are to increase authors’ knowledge and understanding of how the academic publishing industry works; to show authors how they can integrate this understanding into every stage of their work on a publication project; and through this to give them control over the fate of their work. The book also discusses the current state and challenges of academic publishing and indicates where new technology is taking the industry.

    How should the integration effort be organised?2019Övrigt (Övrig (populärvetenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [en]

    How should labour-market integration for immigrants be organised in order to make it successful? We compare what contract theory suggests with the empirical research on the topic. We compensate for the scarce empirical literature by looking at the larger group of hard-to-place unemployed persons, as well as at employment services more generally. We find that for-profit private service providers are not more effective than public ones when it comes to improving employment outcomes and they are often more costly to use. The policy brief is produced by Nordregio on behalf of the Nordic Welfare Centre and the project Nordic collaboration for integration.

    Kinship and Food in South East Asia2011Samlingsverk (redaktörskap) (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Food has an important role in establishing and structuring social and kin relations in Southeast Asian societies. For this reason, there is growing interest within anthropology in understanding how the production, processing and consumption of food is one important basis for the construction of ties of relatedness, so-called ‘kin’ ties. These are often based at least partly on ‘shared substance’. In this respect, a book on Southeast Asia is especially interesting in understanding kinship since the region is generally taken to include a number of distinct types of kin structure.

    This book offers eleven chapters covering a range of societies in different parts of Southeast Asia. It examines ways in which food is used to think about and bring about ties between generations and within generations - including between the living and the dead - in particular through the feeding relationship. Significant parallels emerge between the societies covered: in the role of rice especially; in gender complementarity in relation to different foods; in the belief that food and drink carry fertility, ‘blessings’ or ‘life force’ from ascending to descending generations; and in the use of the feeding relationship to generate hierarchy. These parallels suggest that there may be underlying similarities in cosmology between these widely varying societies.

    Polymedia Distinctions: The Sociocultural Stratification of Interpersonal MediaPractices in Couple Relationships2015Ingår i: Nordicom Review, ISSN 1403-1108, E-ISSN 2001-5119, Vol. 36, nr 2, s. 33-50Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    “Polymedia”, a concept introduced by Madianou and Miller (2012), refers to the everydayconditions of abundant media resources. Whereas such conditions imply that the classificatoryprocesses concerning media as cultural properties become increasingly complex, fewstudies have tried to produce a general picture of how interpersonal media practices arepart of sociocultural reproduction. This study is based on a nationwide survey conductedin Sweden in 2012 and focuses on mediated communication among “polymedia couples”(39 percent of all Swedish couples). The article demonstrates that sociocultural factors areimportant for explaining media uses, also when media accessibility is more or less unlimited,and pinpoints how preferences for certain modalities of communication are linked toother lifestyle practices as markers of taste. Most notably, email communication attains ahigher sociocultural status than online chat functions and social media, testifying to theenduring significance of asynchronous, text-based communication in a longer format as aculturally distinctive mode of intimate communication.
