    Cultivating inclusive public space with urban gardens2023Ingår i: Local Environment: the International Journal of Justice and Sustainability, ISSN 1354-9839, E-ISSN 1469-6711, Vol. 28, nr 1, s. 99-116Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    A promise of urban gardening (UG) is allowing individuals to shape and engage with the built environment, bringing people together in public space. Municipalities may promote UG in public space for a wide variety of reasons such as enabling integration, reducing crime, or promoting area attractivity. While there is a general sense that UG can contribute to inclusive public space in these efforts, previous research provides ambiguous findings. UG in public space requires balancing inclusive and exclusive practices to create common values, as a select group of engaged members inherently shape space in their interest. UG initiatives vary considerably with respect to their aims, organisational forms, and spatial contexts - affecting inclusion in public space in different manners. The article seeks to unpack how urban settings, organisational forms, and municipal enabling affect UG practices towards inclusion in public space. To do so, the article draws on the theory of urban commons and intertwines it with research on inclusion in public space. This provides an understanding of multi-faceted UG governance and its exclusionary aspects. A framework is not only developed and applied to critically, but also constructively, to review how municipalities enable UG. A comparative analysis of UG initiatives in three Northern European municipalities explores both municipal enabling and the co-production of inclusive public space. The research abductively refines the framework for understanding the co-production of inclusive public space in UG. We argue that the findings and resulting framework have implications for research and for municipal enabling of UG towards inclusive public space.

    Sensemaking and teamwork- understanding the relationship between management discourse and work practice2007Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    We have studied an organizational change in a medium sized factory in Sweden (about 120 employees). The overall purpose of this change was to create an organizational climate/culture in which the employees were to take an active interest in the daily work and to develop a larger extent of responsibility (such as planning the manufacturing orders). The reason for these changes was an experienced need for increased capacity of production, increased rates of effectiveness and productivity. This organizational development is vital for the factory because there have been few technical investments during the last few years and there is also an estimated overcapacity totally in production among the plants Sweden. Factory management in active cooperation with the local union decided that improvements could be achieved by organizing work in teams and by developing a new organizational climate/culture. These changes were felt to be integral in securing the plant and jobs in a long term perspective. Our interpretation of the situation in the factory is based on interviews made with team leaders (about 25 persons), union leaders, managers and other personnel. Findings indicate that the meaning and understanding of work have negatively changed instead of the opposite. Instead of experiencing increased responsibility and opportunities to plan the daily work, the employees felt a decreasing sense of competence since their jobs became less demanding and more routine. There is a sense of frustration both in management and among the workers as to how to bring about constructive change that increases both competence and competitiveness in the workplace. This paper explores developments in the factory from a sensemaking perspective. We seek to develop an understanding of the factors shaping how teamwork is understood. An important finding of the study is that the meaning of work in teams is intimately intertwined with factory-wide processes of sensemaking. The character of production and different positions within the social system of the factory are important elements in shaping the meaning of work in teams and thus the performance of these teams.

    Planning for appropriation: public space led development to integrate a fragmented city2012Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In a recent effort the municipality of Malmö, Sweden has sought to increase citizen involvement and active participation in the governance of public space as a platform for creating social integration and raising the status of stigmatized areas. It is hoped that the citizens themselves once these platforms are available will contribute to reversing the stigmatization of an area both by addressing undesirable behaviors directly but also indirectly through the symbolic value created by cared-for public space. The central concern of this paper is the comparison of three attempts by the municipality at creating forms co-governance of public space as a means of social integration along a central path or route connecting affluent parts of the city with less affluent and stigmatized areas. The examples illustrate what may be considered planning for appropriation, where local government actively encourages specific groups to appropriate public space in order to shape social interaction. The first case analyzed is an attempt to break-up the mono-functional housing in the area by introducing small shops and thus create a greater diversity and increasing the number of ‘eyes on the street’. The second case concerns encouraging the use of municipal parks for community gardening, once again to increase diversity and presence in underused space but also to build social capital and efficacy in a broad sense. The third case is concerned with creating an outdoor cultural event space to be co-run by the municipality and residents. This event space is also tailored toward providing young women with an opportunity to shape public space. The cases are analyzed in the light of policy making and also in the light of general discussions on the politics of public space.

    A new role for government in regional development2006Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper argues that regional development initiatives are important. However, development initiatives are complex projects and the management of these projects warrants careful consideration. The paper takes a closer look at the nature of managerial problems in regional development projects. Drawing on literature on iterative project management, we analyze managerial issues that regional development initiatives must confront. The analysis leads to set of suggestions in as to how these managerial challenges might be addressed. Particularly we suggest that a redefinition of roles and forms in regional development initiatives could substantially increase the ability of agencies to achieve results and communicate them.

    Abstract [en]

    The chapter begins by briefly reviewing the rationales for regional development initiatives to promote knowledge transfer and development. This review provides an important backdrop to discussions of how knowledge transfer and development can be facilitated. We then seek to identify some key managerial challenges in publicly funded regional development initiatives, particularly those using a network approach. Analysis of these managerial challenges indicates that the problems facing network development initiatives are known in the literature on the management of complex projects, and that this literature can be drawn on in addressing these challenges.

    Challenges and potentials in collaborative management of urban commons2012Ingår i: Multi-faceted nature of collaboration in the contemporary world / [ed] Tamara Besednjak Valic, Dolores Modic, Urša Lamut, Vega Press, Ltd , 2012, s. 92-113Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Governance of shared resources has been intensely studied by Elinor Ostrom and colleagues. There is a very rich body of work on the governance of shared resources such as fisheries, watersheds, woodlands and the like, These authors have shown that common resources can be managed effectively without recourse to privatization or direct government control. This paper seeks to highlight key issues of how commons in urban settings have been studied in academic literature with the purpose to develop an understanding of what, if any, characteristics are specific or accentuated in the governance of urban commons. The paper begins with a brief discussion of how the commons framework and its application in traditional commons and proceeds to a discussion of urban commons. Subsequently we seek to delineate a small set of characteristics that seem relevant in many of the studied cases and which seem to derive from characteristics of the urban setting. We argue that a careful consideration of these characteristics will provide input to a much-needed understanding of how shared resources in an urban setting can be collaboratively managed and developed.

    The uses and abuses of Elinor Ostrom’s concept of commons in urban theorizing2011Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Any urban setting will contain privately owned spaces, public space and different aspects of mixed space that are not wholly public or private but which constitute common resources. Some urban common resources are tangible such as parks, sidewalks and libraries and some are intangible like a sense of security allowing people to move freely in the city, a sense of belonging, or general buzz. The notion of commons has been given an important upswing in popularity after Elinor Ostrom’s 2009 Nobel Prize. Her work on common-pool resources seems to provide a starting point for grappling with issues of urban commons. However, Ostrom’s earlier work (Ostrom 1990) deals with subtractive and tangible resources (like fish, water and forests). And one important design principle for governance of these commons is that the group of appropriators can erect clear boundary rules. A central characteristic of urban settings however is mobility, permeable boundaries and perhaps that at least occasionally resources are less clearly subtractible. It is therefore questionable to what extent theories of governing the commons relying on Ostrom’s models can be applied in urban settings. However, it may also be that urban commons may have somewhat different character but may be fruitfully approached using the same basic framework. Inroads have been made for instance on informational commons (Ostrom 2007) which also seem radically different from fisheries or water basins. This paper presents are review (in process) of how Ostrom's theories have been applied in urban studies and to highlight the potential and limitations of these approaches.

    Housing context and legitimacy in the transformation of a stigmatized estate: the case of Rosengård2016Ingår i: Journal of Housing and the Built Environment, ISSN 1566-4910, E-ISSN 1573-7772, Vol. 31, nr 4, s. 589-604Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Large housing estates built in the post second world war era have been the object of extensive debates and research in Europe and in North America, due to their social and maintenance challenges but also their high symbolic value. A wide range of regeneration strategies has been employed in addressing issues of segregation and stigmatization of these estates. This paper examines the role of local housing and public management in the selection of regeneration strategies. The paper starts from the concept of housing context as means of explaining the selection of regeneration strategy. The paper is informed by a case study of regeneration efforts in Rosengård, where a minor regeneration effort, the Bokals, led by the municipal housing company, crystalizes a new integrated approach in regenerating the estate. This sets the stage for subsequent developments. We argue that legitimacy, in the sense of management being perceived as a credible agent of change, is critical in the cumulative strengthening and shaping of the regeneration strategy in Rosengård. We put forward the notion of legitimacy trading to capture the mutual and instrumental public support of the main actors. The main contribution of the paper is to demonstrate how including aspects of management legitimacy can develop the concept of housing context, by extending the range of applicability and broadening the range of regeneration strategies that can be accounted for.

    Commons-based governance in public space: user participation and inclusion2016Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Participatory forms of park governance have been seen as means of empowering users, improving adaptation to local needs and harnessing local resources. Participatory governance has however also been critiqued for benefiting only select groups. The situation is ambiguous with participation held to be both empowering in the sense of developing use-values in locally relevant ways and exclusionary in representing select interests. This research addresses the question of if and how a particular form of participatory governance, park commons, may be compatible with inclusive public space. To do so the research explores boundary work of user groups and public sector enabling in two park commons using a multiple case study approach. We find that park commons may be understood to contain a mix of different types of shared resources. The specific mix explains different expressions of user-generated boundaries and particularly the extent that these boundaries are permeable. The research also identifies several forms of public sector intervention that influence the ways boundaries are constructed. The findings indicate a potential for public managers to strategically enable commons as a means to increase civic engagement and potentially increase rather than diminish inclusiveness of parks.

    Enabling urban commons2017Ingår i: CoDesign - International Journal of CoCreation in Design and the Arts, ISSN 1571-0882, E-ISSN 1745-3755, Vol. 13, nr 3, s. 202-213Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    An increasing interest in commons has generated a rich literature related to co- and participatory design (PD). Besides providing examples, cases and methods, this literature often displays interpretations that are recognisably engaged and political in which commons have acquired an additional symbolic value. In some cases this symbolic value propels more ambitious narratives in which other, post-industrial/post-collapse futures or utopian societal forms are prototyped or infrastructured. Although this literature highlights an important connection between collaborative design and collaborative governance, we hold that the conception of commons underpinning some of these efforts is not fully relevant in contemporary urban contexts. In the following article we describe the practical and normative issues raised by transferring the concept of commons to a contemporary urban setting. We critique aspects of how the concept has been invoked in Co-Design and PD but also seek to demonstrate how it may be applied constructively, paying due attention to both network and subtractive effects of shared resources and acknowledging interrelations with the public sector.

    Abstract [en]

    Landscape architects today love run-down areas, the challenge of temporary projects, hands-on activities, working with people, and the aesthetics of the transitory. They often experience themselves as part of a particularly democratic process of space production when given the opportunity to address urban redevelopment through temporary interventions, claiming to make a difference to conventional ways of planning and building. Alternative forms of power, they feel, can be enacted through new forms of professional expertise, with public authorities accepting or fostering these precarious production modes, and with designers in the role of activists. The much lauded emergence of temporary bottom-up projects in urban redevelopment areas also raises the question of their true democratic potential. Often presented as enabling new forms of democracy and participatory planning for imagining and building new urban forms and new professional profiles, they also carry the danger of abusing people’s resources for tacit interests of societally established power groups and of derailing into ‘people-washing’. To distinguish between democratic enhancement and its abuse requires mining the notion of democracy. In this essay we do so in crossing research on the spatial aspects of democracy with theory on radical participation in order to develop a frame for judgment of concrete projects.

    Investigating the democratic potential of temporary uses in urban redevelopment projects2018Ingår i: Enabling Urban Alternatives: Crises, Contestation, and Cooperation / [ed] Jens Kaae Fisker, Letizia Chiappini, Lee Pugalis, Antonella Bruzzese, Palgrave Macmillan, 2018, s. 85-108Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    In this chapter we shed light on enabling urban alternatives that arise through novel ways of governance and collaboration, observed in current urban redevelopment projects in Europe. Often instated on left-over industrial, commercial or infrastructural areas and premises, the projects we are concerned with are driven by municipal authorities, public or private developers who offer parts of the spaces under redevelopment for temporary appropriation by users who conventionally play a secondary if not marginal role in the formation of new urban districts: youngsters, freelancers, small businesses, start-ups, associations, groups representing subcultures. These processes seem to empower novel constellations of actors in urban development. However, there is already a substantial body of research pointing out how temporary uses may provide a means of normalizing precarious forms of rental and are exploited for gentrification and branding purposes. A starting point of the chapter is therefore that these initiatives are ambiguous.We argue that it is important to consider democratic implications of temporary use as this practice becomes increasingly accepted and enabled by public sector actors. The chapter then brings together research on spatial aspects of democracy with theory on radical participation in order to develop a heuristic framework for assessing democratic potentials of temporary use and briefly illustrates this in relation to two examples. We contend that such a framework will enable an informed approach to temporary use by activists, professional designers and authorities. The overarching purpose is to enable this kind of informed approach and thereby make it possible for more people to experience democracy in urban development and create more varied urban alternatives.

    Solutions in search of a problem: Opening policy windows for Business Improvement Districts in the Nordic countries2024Ingår i: Environment and Planning C: Politics and Space, ISSN 2399-6544, E-ISSN 2399-6552Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Policy mobility literature invites us to consider the power-laden processes of how urban policies are exported, mimicked, and transformed in different urban contexts. However, recent critique has highlighted the need for a fuller understanding of urban policy context to understand where and when policies come to be implemented in new settings and how they are transformed. The purpose of this study is to explore understandings of urban policy context in a comparative study of policy mobility, and specifically relations between internationally packaged concepts, local pilot projects and national level actors. We develop a framework for understanding these relations in policy mobility based on case studies of BID policy development in Sweden and Denmark drawing on both Policy Mobility literature and a Multiple Streams Approach. The main finding is that local pilots play a key role in translating packaged policy concepts but also serve as ‘proof of concept’ for further institutionalization. The way these pilots are discursively situated in relation to ‘problems’ is therefore of central importance for further implementation. Furthermore, the study highlights the role of policy entrepreneurs that connect local pilots (and discursive problems) with national level actors, and political opportunities.
