    Liberaliseringen av svensk skolpolitik: en positionsbestämning2012In: Statsvetenskaplig Tidskrift, ISSN 0039-0747, Vol. 114, no 2, p. 241-270Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    In the public and academic debate, the liberalization of Swedish school policy is often equated with privatization and - to a lesser degree - differentiation. The first is associated with the rapid growth of a semi-private free school sector, driven by slogans such as freedom of choice, cost-efficiency, parental influence and market competition. The second is associated with the decentralization of power and goaloriented governance, aiming to achieve a variegated and flexible school system that is better equipped to meet individual needs, interests and preferences. The article examines this widespread conception of the liberalization of Swedish school policy. More precisely, the objective is to position central school policy developments over the last two decades in the liberal field through a tripartite typology. I argue that the mainstream conception exaggerates the privatization type of liberalization, while neglecting another, less visible but very influential type—namely universalization.

    A Projectified Public Administration: How Projects in Swedish Local Governments Become Instruments for Political and Managerial Concerns2017In: Statsvetenskaplig Tidskrift, ISSN 0039-0747, Vol. 119, no 1, p. 185-205Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Over the last couple of decades an increasing use of temporary organizations has been observed in public administration, a development sometimes referred to as projectification. This article explores the political-administrative rationality of projectification by studying the initiation and implementation of a project funding system regarding social investments in a Swedish municipality. In the article it is argued that projectification is driven by the administrative leadership with the aid of devoted civil servants. Projects are also attractive to politicians because of the temporal, forward-looking character of politics itself, i.e. that the time conception of project management and politics is basically similar. The article shows that the critique against projectification in terms of increasing short-termism is somewhat beside the point, since politicians and top managers rather seem interested to introduce more short-termism in public administration. Projectification, however, does not represent a profound organizational change but rather introduces a new mind-set with potential long-term effects.

    Underrättelsebehov för strategisk autonomi: Ett europeiskt perspektiv2020In: Statsvetenskaplig Tidskrift, ISSN 0039-0747, Vol. 122, no 3, p. 375-397Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The European Union (EU) has for a long time had ambitions to achieve some form of ‘Strategic Autonomy’, often understood as a capability to conduct security pol- icy independent of the United States. With the EU’s Global Strategy (EUGS) from 2016, this objective, albeit without a clear definition, is part of the public EU strat- egy. This new level of ambition places high demands on the independent intelli- gence capacities for the member states as well as for the EU at the collective level. at national level as well as for the EU at the collective level. As the world moves towards multipolarity and the geopolitization of the economic sphere, the ambi- tion for strategic autonomy has a broader meaning, such as the ability to conduct an independent trade policy or to choose a supplier of 5G infrastructure. In light of this, this article aims to analyse strategic autonomy as a security policy objective and the various intelligence needs it raises. We analyse autonomy in three different functions, or areas of application: political autonomy, operational autonomy and industrial and digital autonomy. We will then make an overview of how these needs currently are meet and how additional intelligence capacity could be created.

    Abstract [en]

    A good decade and a half after the opening of the Berlin wall, the university textbooks on International relations have almost forgotten about the Soviet Union and the European East-West divide – and suddenly, inexplicably, the security situation in Europe is as unstable and dangerous as ever. Russia under Putin is making it clear that the country is not content with the post-Cold War order, and is willing and ready to use deception, bullying and force to have it changed.

    Russian Electoral Engineering from Perestroika to Putin2023In: Statsvetenskaplig Tidskrift, ISSN 0039-0747, Vol. 125, no 1, p. 121-148Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article examines electoral politics over the last 35 years in the Russian Federation, since the end of the Soviet Union to the present day. It traces the party and electoral system through several phases of development, from hyper-pluralism in the wake of the Soviet Union’s collapse to the electoral authoritarianism of the late Putin period. A particular focus is on the ‘toolkit’ of measures used to constrict competition and ensure favourable electoral outcomes for the Kremlin and its associates, and on public confidence (or the lack thereof) in the legitimacy of the electoral process. Whilst we can over-romanticise the pluralism of the late 1980s and 1990s, there is an inherent danger for the Kremlin in relying on extracting ever greater gains from an ever-narrower base of support, at the expense of systemic renewal. In the long-term, this may presage another epochal shift in the Russian political system.

    Homofobins geopolitik: En studie av rysk mediebevakning av förbudet mot ”homosexuell propaganda”2014In: Statsvetenskaplig Tidskrift, ISSN 0039-0747, Vol. 116, no 3Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In Russia, as in some other countries around the world, we are currently witnessing a wave of politically sanctioned homophobia, most concretely manifested in the 2013 law against “homosexual propaganda”. By examining Russian mainstream media reporting, this article aims to reconstruct a dominant narrative on homosexuality and LGBT rights. It is found that this narrative revolves around three tropes: 1) that non-heterosexuals are a threat to the nation, 2) that LGBT rights are about imposing the minority´s norms onto the majority; and 3) that LGBT rights is bound up with Western modernity, to which Russia offers an alternative. Discussing the findings in light of theories on nationalism, gender and sexuality, I argue that homophobia in Russia must be understood in a global geopolitical perspective: as an attempt to negotiate a meaningful international role for Russia in a world order where LGBT rights have become a symbolic marker of Western modernity.

    Abstract [en]

    Fallacies and wishful thinking: on Russia studies, Putin, and the lead-up to the warWhen President Putin over the years repeatedly raged and ranted about how Russia had been deceived by the West over NATO’s eastward expansion, how Ukraine’s rightful president allegedly had been illegally overthrown in a coup instigated by the West, and how these actions had the hidden purpose of bringing destruction and devastation to Russia, few were inclined to believe that he was not just repeat-ing a mantra, but actually believed in what he said and prescribed a program of action. This essay provides a background to the steady growth of the authoritar-ian essence of the Putin regime and its growing ambitions beyond Russia’s borders and discusses what academic area studies specialists in the West and other Russia pundits generally should have been able to foresee about Russia’s aggressiveness and its upcoming assault on Ukraine. Perhaps the current situation could have been avoided, had there been a greater inclination to bring together the clues that were there and take preventive action to meet the danger

    Vad angår oss Rysslands affärer? Ryssland och Sovjetunionen i svensk statsvetenskaplig forskning2010In: Statsvetenskaplig Tidskrift, ISSN 0039-0747, Vol. 112, no 5, p. 603-616Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    En smula självironiskt brukar jag jämföra rysslandsforskning med Hotel California, det vill säga att principen gäller att man kan checka ut från hotellet när man vill men man kan aldrig lämna stället. Själv trodde jag att jag checkade ut för ungefär tio år sedan efter ett långt ömsesidigt slitage, men lämnade jag verkligen? Även om jag i flera år i min aktiva forskning ägnade mig åt helt andra ting, tror jag åtminstone inte att jag i andras ögon någonsin lyckades ta mig från domänen. Rysslandsforskningen hade blivit en tillskriven identitet på gott och ont. Det var väl när jag insett det efter en fem-sex år i självvald exil från rysslandsforskningen som jag accepterade det till synes oundvikliga och valde att mer och mer träda in på hemmabanan igen. Det är med detta hemvändarperspektiv som jag gör nedanstående reflektioner. Jag kommer i det följande dels att teckna en bakgrund vad beträffar forskning om Ryssland och Sovjetunionen i svensk statsvetenskap, dels argumentera för varför sådan forskning fortfarande behövs och då även skissera ett antal områden som tillsammans, enligt mitt personliga sätt att se på saken, sammantaget pekar fram emot en angelägen forskningsagenda.

    Revolution och konstitution: Om konstituerande makt2007In: Statsvetenskaplig Tidskrift, ISSN 0039-0747, Vol. 109, no 4, p. 359-379Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Revolution and Constitution: On Constituent Power. The people’s constituent power was among the most central ideas of the democratic revolutions during the late 18th century, at the time intrinsically related to the dilemma of liberation and freedom: the risk that freedom is lost unless the revolutions are institutionalized, and the risk that the constitution comes to embody a conditioned freedom unless liberation is pursued. This dilemma was central to the three conceptions of constituent power discussed in this article: (1) the Sans-Culottes’ view of constituent power as permanently residing in the people and tied to liberation, (2) the radical democratic mechanisms of controlling legislative and executive power exemplified by the constitution of Pennsylvania, and (3) the American federalists’ argument that constituent power is the expression of the people’s will at the moment of adopting the constitution, after which it resides in the background and loose its importance. These ideas of constituent power are discussed and then related to the contemporary debate about it in the context of constitutional democracy.

    Abstract [en]

    Socrates acting as a “gadfly” in Athenian politics is one of the first descriptions of what it entails to engage in political enlightenment. The possibilities of such enlightenment, in particular to engage in critical speech, are addressed in this arti- cle by discussing the ideas of Jürgen Habermas and Michel Foucault. Habermas argues that a radical political idea was articulated in the early modern public sphere; this was the idea of the dissolution of domination through public opin- ion. This understanding is important for Habermas’ later formulations of commu- nicative action and discourse. The latter is contrasted with Foucault’s analysis of truth telling, parrēsia, and it is argued that the risk taking and courage required to speak the truth provide clues for deepening the understanding of what Habermas calls discursive problematization. Truth telling is also considered in relation to the Socratic dialogue, which gives us an idea of the reciprocal and dialogical relations between participants focused on elaborating relations to the self that enable indi- viduals to engage in critical speech and political enlightenment.

    From Distant Object to Close Subject: The Concept of Culture in Political Science2005In: Statsvetenskaplig Tidskrift, ISSN 0039-0747, Vol. 107, no 3, p. 279-300Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The relationship between researchers and their objects of study has varied and continues to vary across time and disciplinary traditions. A key element in such variations is the degree of reflexivity involved in the process of knowledge production. To what extent are researchers aware of how they themselves produce knowledge? This question is discussed in the context of political science. It is suggested that the various forms the study of culture has taken in political science can serve as an indicator of different levels of reflexivity or modes of engagement. Three influential conceptualizations of “culture” in political science are presented as examples: political culture theory, civilizational theory, and constructivism. Toward the end, the case is made for a cosmopolitan engagement with culture and examples from political science of this type of engagement are introduced.

    En kontroversiell klassiker2020In: Statsvetenskaplig Tidskrift, ISSN 0039-0747, Vol. 122, no 4, p. 731-735Article, book review (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Carl Schmitts kompakta essä Der Begriff des Politischen, eller Det politiska som begrepp, utkom 1932 och har blivit berömd för sin kärnfulla huvudtes: att det politiska, den farliga, kokande kärna som genomströmmar mänskligt samliv, inklusive men inte uteslutande det vi kallar ”politik”, karaktäriseras av skillnaden mellan vän och fiende. ”Varje religiös, moralisk, ekonomisk, etnisk eller annan motsättning”, skriver Schmitt, ”förvandlas till en politisk motsättning om den är stark nog att dela upp människor i vänner respektive fiender.”

    En provocerande tes. En farlig tes. 1932 är som bekant inte vilket årtal som helst. Bättre blir det inte av att Schmitt kom att legitimera Hitlers maktövertagande. Att Schmitt hos många fått dåligt rykte överraskar alltså inte. Likväl hävdade Schmitt själv efter kriget att han aldrig varit övertygad nazist – men att han var en tänkare som fann inspiration hos reaktionära teoretiker och som hyste grava misstankar gällande demokratins förmåga att upprätthålla fred och stabilitet står bortom rimligt tvivel.
