    A study of approaches within research on problems of access to services for youth and children with functional, cognitive and developmental disabilities from a multicultural perspective2012In: Diversity and equality in health and care, ISSN 2049-5471, E-ISSN 2049-548X, Vol. 9, no 2, p. 125-140Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study describes how research approaches the problems of access to services for children and younger people. The aim is to identify approaches to ‘the multicultural question’ in relation to access to service, geographic origins, disciplines and methods. Two main approaches were identified in the review: a culture-based and a rights-based, both equally preoccupied with problems such as the disproportionate representation of minorities. The culture-based approach was influenced by a “strong’ notion of culture and was inclined to target problems of access ‘at the counter’ (service delivery). The rights-based approach was influenced by a notion of culture connected to agency and gave primacy to ‘the gateway’ (recognition of eligibility). The field could benefit from more attention and possibly from further development of a rights-based approach, which implies a notion of culture that entails a connection to agency, a linking to power, participation, and self-representation.

    En europeisk kartläggning av odokumenterade migranters tillgång till vård2008In: Socialmedicinsk Tidskrift, ISSN 0037-833X, no 2008:6Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    The project ”Health Care in NowHereland – Improving Services for Undocumented Migrants in EU”, financed by Directorate – General for Health and Consumers, 2008-2011 will identify and assess models of good practice for health care for undocumented migrants from a health protection perspective. The right to health is a political area involving tension between human rights and consideration regarding migration policies. The aim is to get an overview of policies in EU 27 at national level, practices of health care for undocumented migrants on regional and local level as well as the experiences from undocumented migrants to support rational decision making. Researchers from Belgium, Italy, Portugal, Switzerland, UK and Austria are forming the team.

    En scenariobaserad analys av ett IT-avbrott i socialtjänsten: anpassningar och social redundans2018In: Socialvetenskaplig tidskrift, ISSN 1104-1420, E-ISSN 2003-5624, Vol. 25, no 3-4, p. 287-307Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article takes as its starting point the fact that documentation as well as communication within the social services are to a great extent dependent on IT. Against that backdrop, an investigation is presented whose aim is to contribute to knowledge about what IT failures can mean within the social services. The focus is on the immediate consequences for the documentation and communication of the social services. The aim is also to contribute to the understanding of how the course of events relates to the maintenance of social work despite interruptions. Systems theory provides an overarching theoretical framework. Based on that approach, social work is seen as a societal functional system aiming at the administration of exclusion. The study is based on empirical material consisting of assessments of the consequences of failures, as formulated by social services staff in risk and vulnerability analyses conducted within the framework of the investigation. The results include descriptions of consequences that arise as a result of inaccessible operative systems but also as a result of, for example, the disruption of VoIP telephony. Further, the results describe concrete adaptations and suggestions for possible changes that potentially reduce the vulnerability entailed by IT dependency. The conclusion is that the IT failure does not lead to a corresponding failure of social work as a functional system, despite technical dependencies. The system is maintained through adaptations, which are possible thanks to functional equivalence (that is, a goal may be reached in several ways) and available redundancy. It is the staff that, besides a number of technical adaptations, make concrete organizational and social adaptations, to some degree at the expense of their working environment. This is called social redundancy in order to highlight how lost technology is replaced by social processes.

    En studie av avgörande faktorer för tillit i mångkulturell vårdkontext: noteringar kring professionsetik2009Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta paper bygger på en studie i vilken sjuksköterskor som arbetar i hemsjukvård intervjuades om sina möten med patienter. Forsningsintresset gäller vad det är som skapar tillit enligt deras erfarenhet, vad de ser som avgörande faktorer för tillit. Sjuksköterskorna är verksamma i ett geografiskt område med hög andel befolkning med utländsk bakgrund. Detta tillför ett övergripande intresse för i vad mån de skiljer på allmängiltiga och särskilda avgörande faktorer samt eventuella inkluderings- och exkluderingsprocesser som kan hänföras till patienters etniska och kulturella mångfald. I fråga om teoretiska perspektiv, tar detta paper sin utgångspunkt i James Coleman (1990) vars tillitsbegrepp är interaktivt och låter tillitsskapande processer innefatta en beslutsprocess från tillitsgivarens sida och möjliga komplementära handlingar från tillitsmottagarens sida. Intervjuerna bygger på CIT (Critical Incident Technique) samt på en bärande cirkulär fråga. Analysen visar att sköterskorna erfar både allmängiltiga och särskilda avgörande faktorer samt att dessa i analysen inte framstår som väsensskilda utan snarare som överlappande. Ett grundläggande drag för de avgörande faktorerna är att de har sin grundförutsättning i en sensibilitet för en annan människas subjektiva situation. Vidare skiljs tillit för en person från förtroende för ett system och dess upplevda legitimitet. Slutligen framstår en koppling mellan de uppfattade avgörande faktorerna för tillit och de vårdetiska värden som förknippas med sjuksköterskors professionsetik som helt central. De avgörande faktorerna för tillit tycks föreligga när en sjuksköterska indikerar sin intension och sin kompetens vilka i sin tur är kopplade till vårdetiska värden. Detta innebär att sjuksköterskorna förhåller sig till sin patient utifrån värden som upprätthålls som allmängiltiga. Sjuksköterskans förhållningssätt framstår som ”operationaliserad legitimitet” i förhållande till sjuksköterskeprofessionen och hälso- och sjukvårdsystemet.

    Encounters With Irregular Migrants in Social Work: “Collateral Damage” and Reframing of Recognizability in Swedish Public Social Services2015In: Journal of Immigrant & Refugee Studies, ISSN 1556-2948, E-ISSN 1556-2956, Vol. 13, no 3, p. 302-320Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim is to explore experiences and considerations of social workers regarding irregular migrants, understood as being prone to be “collateral damage.” It is revealed that some social workers approve assistance exceeding that which can find support in the national legislation. They are hereby addressing the normative conditions for recognition and installing new frames for apprehending irregular migrants. This process is referred to as a reframing of recognizability. By exceeding the limits of “belonging,” social workers question their profession's national link as well as the inability of a nationally anchored understanding of social work to deal with irregular migrants.

    Erfarenheter av socialt arbete i Malmö under det första året med covid-19: Katastrofriskreducering, resiliens och hållbarhetens "hur"2023Report (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här forsknings- och utvecklingsrapporten cirklar kring en fråga: Vad innebar covid-19-pandemin för det sociala arbetet i Malmö? I rapporten återges några svar på frågan. De är formulerade i möte med en rad personer verksamma inom socialt arbete som delade med sig av sina erfarenheter under pandemins första år. Svaren på frågan är viktiga eftersom de belyser vad en kris bär med sig för det sociala arbetet. Begreppet kris ger uttryck för att situationen i fråga präglas av osäkerhet och brådska och att den hotar centrala värden. Rapporten tar både upp hur det sociala arbetet var del av den omedelbara hanteringen av pandemin i staden och placerar in det i ett bredare perspektiv som låter det sociala arbetets roll i katastrofriskreducering framträda.

    Irregular migrants challenging policy hierarchies and health professions: the case of Sweden2012In: Journal of Hospital Administration, ISSN 1927-6990, E-ISSN 1927-7008, Vol. 1, no 2, p. 34-41Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In a European comparative perspective Sweden, though upholding a universal welfare model is one of the most restrictive countries as regards irregular migrants’ right to access health care. They do not access care via the legal framework beyond emergency care upon payment of the full cost. This article presents findings from a study aiming at exploring and elucidating the Swedish policy answers as regards right to access health care for irregular migrants. The current policy is outlined besides a new governmental agreement and standpoints put forward by health and welfare professionals. The analysis suggests that migration policy has primacy over health policy. Further, it suggests, that by claiming that their jurisdiction is independent from the state’s interest of control of migration the hierarchy is renegotiated. The core involves the fundamental norms and principles underpinning the exclusion of irregular migrants from welfare services and their connection to controlled migration.

    Positioning social work in relation to disasters: A social notion running along a continuum2022In: Defining Disaster: Disciplines and Domains / [ed] Marie Aronsson-Storrier; Rasmus Dahlberg, Cheltenham and Camberley in the UK: Edward Elgar Publishing, 2022, p. 58-71Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the chapter is to position social work in relation to disasters. It elaborates on notions of disaster based on the literature of disaster studies as well as of social work. The main argument is that social work pursues a genuinely social notion of disaster rooted in a socially framed understanding of disasters, risks and vulnerabilities. It suggests a broad notion of disaster understood as a collapse of the social protection and running along a continuum by integrating intersubjective dimensions and structural dimensions of larger social systems. This broad notion seems to make the boundary between 'everyday steady-state' general social services and 'disaster-related' services permeable to a larger extent than in mainstream disaster management. Further, it can encompass phenomena originating from gradual processes in the wake of an ongoing transgression of planetary boundaries and environmental degradation.

    Public Social Services’ encounters with irregular migrants in Sweden: a preliminary outline of reframing of recognisability2013Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper involves Public Social Services’ encounters with irregular migrants in Sweden and outlines an understanding of on-going processes in terms of being not only a differing recognition (Honneth 1996; 2004) of irregular migrants enacted in practice but also a suggested re-framing of their recognisability (Butler 2009) implying an egalitarian way of recognizing precariousness. The point of departure in the empirical studies is an unclear legal situation and a general exclusion of irregular migrants in legislation as well as in social policy. Staff within Public Social Services might thus face contradictory demands concerning international and national regulations, which leads to legal ambiguities open to discretionary powers when encountering irregular migrants. The aim of the paper is to explore the handling of cases and actual experiences. In addition, the interest concerns the considerations made by street-level bureaucrats with an interest in the values that are invoked when enacting discretion. The material in the study was obtained using web-based questionnaires. The analysis confirms that the Public Social Services encounter irregular migrants and that handling seems to differ and that staff applies different approaches. Differing reference points appear to be invoked when enacting discretion: some related to social work and others to controlled migration. The social work values invoked by some respondents might imply an appreciation of a right to services and control of migration as independent processes and jurisdiction and that social work is not to be subordinated to policies of migration.

    The aim of this article is to characterise policies regarding the right of access to health care for undocumented migrants in the 27 member states of European Union and to identify the extent to which these entitlements are congruent with human rights standards. Methods The study is based on a questionnaire sent to experts, non-governmental organisations and authorities in the member states between April and December 2009, as well as on available reports and official websites. Primary sources were also consulted as regards legislation. Results Right of access to health care differs considerably between member states. States can be grouped into three clusters: in 5 countries undocumented migrants have the right to access care that is more extensive than emergency care; in 12 countries they can only access emergency care; and in 10 countries not even emergency care can be accessed. These variations are independent of the system of financing or the numbers of undocumented migrants present. Rather, they seem to relate to the intersection between practices of control of migration, the main types of undocumented migrants present, and the basic norms of the welfare state – the ‘moral economy’ of the work society. Conclusion International obligations articulated in human rights standards are not fully met in the majority of member states. A more complete understanding of the differing policies might be obtained by considering the relationship between the formal and informal economy, as well as the role of human rights standards within the current ‘moral economy’.
