    ‘Rise up and walk!’ The Church of Sweden and the ‘problem of vagrancy’ in the early twentieth century2022In: Scandinavian Journal of History, ISSN 0346-8755, E-ISSN 1502-7716, Vol. 47, p. 156-177Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article examines how people within the Church of Sweden’s leadership tried to solve ‘the problem of vagrancy’ in Sweden in the early twentieth century. In focus are the priest John Melander and the deacon Josef Flinth, who advocated and realized various activities for categories of poor and mobile men in the population. These interventions, defined as help-to-self-help, differentiated between the ‘worthy’ and the ‘unworthy’ needy. In publications and lectures, Melander and Flinth presented arguments to transfer ‘unworthy’ categories to the ‘worthy’, thereby expanding the community of value. This expansion was conditioned, however, by boundaries drawn regarding ideas on belonging and ethnicity. Working in the borderlands of the community as part of a Christian calling, Melander and Flinth contributed to the expansion of social work in the early twentieth century.

    The Status Quo Problem and the Role of Consumers Against Antimicrobial Resistance2022In: Frontiers in Sustainable Food Systems, E-ISSN 2571-581X, Vol. 6, article id 834022Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Antimicrobial resistance occurs when microorganisms survive exposure and proliferate in the presence of therapeutic levels of antimicrobial drugs. Because antimicrobial resistance is increasing, it is vital to encourage consumers to change and adopt smarter antibiotic behaviour. Despite World Health Organization's efforts to combat antibiotic resistance and their emphasis on the importance of public involvement, the role of consumers has been overlooked. The manifold responsibility for antibiotic resistance extends across different actors, including food retailers and consumers. Given this shared responsibility, a blame game arises and no action occurs. To overcome this status quo situation, we draw attention to the potential role of individual responsibility and social pressure to encourage consumers to adopt smart antibiotic behaviour but also to empower them. Conditions must be put in place to enable consumers' critical evaluation of the health-related and ethical aspects of their food choices. Such behaviour can be facilitated using digital innovations to support informed choices, in store and online.

    Doing Complexity Leadership Theory: How agile coaches at Spotify practice enabling leadership2019In: Creativity and Innovation Management, ISSN 0963-1690, E-ISSN 1467-8691, Vol. 28, no 1, p. 42-60Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Complexity leadership theory (CLT) is about balancing formal and informal organisation to leverage dynamics of Complex Adaptive Systems (CAS) and produce learning, creativity, and adaptation in organisations. Based on interviews with sixteen agile coaches (AC) at Spotify, this study examines how AC practice enabling leadership, a key balancing force in complexity leadership. Coaches practice enabling leadership by increasing the context-sensitivity of others, supporting other leaders, establishing and reinforcing simple principles, observing group dynamics, surfacing conflict and facilitating and encouraging constructive dialogue. The AC as complexity leader values being present,observing and reacting in the moment. Findings suggest flexible structure provided by an attentive coach may prove a fruitful way to navigate and balance autonomy and alignment in organisations.

    Sport management. Del 1: Idrottens organisationer i en svensk kontext2018Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Idrottens landskap förändras. Två tendenser är särskilt tydliga: professionalisering och kommersialisering. I den här boken beskrivs hur dessa tendenser tar sig uttryck i relation till hur idrotten organiseras. Det handlar om nya sätt att organisera idrott, som skapar såväl nya förutsättningar som utmaningar. Inte minst utmanar dessa nya organisationsformer rådande sätt att betrakta idrott.

    Sport management handlar om att planera, organisera, leda och utvärdera idrott. Sedan drygt femton år tillbaka finns universitetsutbildningar som tar det här kunskaps- och forskningsområdet på största allvar. Författarna i den här boken har varit med och byggt upp dessa utbildningar. De har också forskat och undervisat inom området och på så vis bidragit till fältets expansion och vetenskaplighet såväl i Sverige som internationellt.

    Boken är den första i en serie om tre böcker om sport management i Sverige. Det är den enda aktuella boken om sport management på svenska. Det är också den enda boken som tar utgångspunkt i svenska förhållanden.

    För professionella inom idrottens administrativa värld är det här en oumbärlig bok. Den ger bland annat svar på frågorna: Varför ser idrottens svenska organisationer ut som de gör? Hur kommer det sig att den ideella idrottsrörelsen blivit så stark i Sverige? Varför sitter fler män än kvinnor på styrande positioner inom idrotten? Och har det någon betydelse att barngympan organiseras av ett kommersiellt företag?

    Sport management. Del 2: Styrning och samhällsengagemang inom svensk idrott.2019Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Idrottens landskap förändras. Två tendenser är särskilt tydliga – professionalisering och kommersialisering. I den här boken beskrivs bland annat hur dessa tendenser tar sig uttryck i relation till hur idrotten styrs. Styrning handlar om makt. Det är både viktigt och intressant att synliggöra och granska vilka som har den makten, hur den utövas och vilka konsekvenserna blir. Med makt följer också ansvar. Inom svensk idrott yttrar sig ansvarstagandet genom ett väl förankrat samhällsengagemang.

    Sport management handlar om att planera, organisera, leda och utvärdera idrott. Sedan femton år tillbaka finns universitetsutbildningar som tar det här kunskaps- och forskningsområdet på största allvar. De flesta författarna i den här boken har varit med och byggt upp dessa utbildningar. De har också forskat och undervisat inom området och på så vis bidragit till fältets expansion och vetenskaplighet såväl i Sverige som internationellt.

    Boken är den andra i en serie om tre böcker om sport management i Sverige. Det är den andra aktuella boken om sport management på svenska. Det är också den andra boken som tar utgångspunkt i svenska förhållanden.

    För professionella inom idrottens administrativa värld och för förtroendevalda inom idrottens organisationer är det här en oumbärlig bok. Den ger bland annat svar på frågorna: Varför ger kommuner ekonomiskt stöd till byggandet av lokala arenor, och har de juridisk rätt att göra det? Hur kommer det sig att idrottsorganisationer så intresserade av sociala projekt, och varför riskerar många av dessa att hamna på projektkyrkogården?

    STIHL Timbersports® and the Reconceptualization of Modern Sport in the Light of Decontextualization and Eventification of Forestry Work2022In: Social Sciences, E-ISSN 2076-0760, Vol. 11, no 3, p. 115-115Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines STIHL Timbersports® and its amalgamation of craftmanship, competition, eventification and branding, through the lens of decontextualization of sport. It thus revisits and revitalizes the concept of sportification, as well as discusses the characteristics of sport such as authenticity and “uncertainty of outcome”. The aim of the article is to grasp the different processes that challenge our common positions regarding sport, which may in turn progress sport beyond the prevalent conceptualization of modern sport.

    Barn- och ungdomsidrott till salu: Om begär, immateriellt arbete och kommersialisering2022Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent decades scholars have noted a trend in Swedish child and youth sport, namely that businesses are emerging parallel to the Swedish Sports Confederation (SSC), Sweden’s leading ideally driven sports organisation. Despite this recent trend of businesses starting to organise child and youth sport, research on the phenomenon is as yet scarce. This is also true for the overarching research area of the commercialisation of youth sport. Thus, the aim of this thesis is to analyse how commercially driven child and youth sport in Sweden functions and how leading representatives from child and youth sport businesses perceive Swedish child and youth sport.

    The thesis consists of four sub-studies. Three of the studies are based on data from different child and youth sport business websites, while the other is based on data from interviews with leading representatives from different child and youth sport businesses.

    The results identify four different commercial de-territorialisation processes that have been established, or territorialised, in Sweden. These four de-territorialisation processes consist of businesses that target their services to different potential customers groups. They also identify how the different businesses produce immaterial values regarding child and youth sport in order to attract potential customers. These values are enunciated differently depending on the kind of de-territorialisation processes the businesses stem from. Furthermore, the thesis illustrates that in their website images the businesses often visually represent their ideal customers as white boys and girls who are actively pursuing some kind of sport. It also shows that the leading business representatives position themselves and their services as passionate sport enthusiasts, child and youth sport actors and actors in a changing society.

    The conclusion is that the commercialisation of child and youth sport functions in four different ways and creates boundaries between ideally- and commercially driven sport. The challenge for ideally driven sport is to keep control over sport as a social and cultural product. This is especially important in a post-industrial society, where businesses aspire to take control of the social and cultural content of sport and make it profitable

    The Economic Impact of a Major Sports Event: An analysis what effect the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup in Levi, Finland has on the local economy2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Aim

    The aim of this study has been to determine the economic impact on the local economy of a large scale international sporting event, namely the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup in Levi, Finland. In addition, it seeks to investigate the regional origins of visitors to the event and the relationship between residence and expenditure.

    Method

    The methodology consisted of two key stages: the estimation of visitor expenditure and the calculation of the economic impact of this. Information about visitor expenditure and background was collected by survey on site during the event. This has been additionally completed with interviews with key persons associated with the event concerning organizational and infrastructure spending.

    Results

    The results of the survey indicate that the event gives a direct boost of an estimate of six and a half million Euros to the local economy. When taking into consideration the tourism multipliers for the area the total economic impact of the event ranges between 7,5 and 9,5 million Euros. Additionally the results also point out a clear relationship between the residence and expenditure of the event visitors.

    Conclusions

    The results of the economic impact can be used by the Organization Committee as a tool to show and justify future investments with public funding. Additionally the background and origins of the attendees gives a great deal of information for the people behind the marketing and sponsorship strategies. Further studies regarding the calculation of specific factors within economic impact studies would though be greatly needed.
