Abstract [sv]

Inledning: För några veckor sedan riktades mycket kritik mot att flera kommuner i Jönköpings län inte hade krigsplacerat sin personal trots att både regeringen och Myndigheten för samhällsskydd och beredskap betonat vikten därav. Den militära underrättelse- och säkerhetstjänsten (Must) skriver i en ny rapport att Sverige befinner sig i ett allvarligt säkerhetsläge. Med bakgrund i denna rapport och Natos militära scenarier för slaget om Östersjön vill jag här bättre förklara varför krigsplaceringar är mycket viktiga för just Jönköpings län.

Abstract [sv]

Ingress: Många ryska uttalanden om kärnvapenanvändning har väckt mycket oro i Sverige. Som medlem i Nato är Sverige under Natos kärnvapenparaply, men hur stor är risken att kriget i Ukraina eskalerar till en sådan ödesdiger konfrontation mellan Ryssland och Nato? Och går det att ens veta om Putin bluffar? Svaret är inte enkelt, men det går att resonera med hjälp av forskning om spelteori, skriver Marco Nilsson, docent i statsvetenskap.

2024 (English)In: Studies in Conflict and Terrorism, ISSN 1057-610X, E-ISSN 1521-0731Article in journal (Refereed) Epub ahead of print
Abstract [en]

There is a gap in knowledge when it comes to jihadism and how it is associated with notions of masculinity. Especially empirical studies on masculinity that are based on interviews with active or former jihadists are lacking. This study seeks to analyze the role that notions of masculinity have played in different phases of jihadiship among Swedish jihadist foreign fighters, from recruitment to traveling to the conflict zone, and then eventually returning to Sweden. With a focus on heroic jihadist hypermasculinity, which is a form of hegemonic masculinity that exaggerates male stereotypical behavior such as violence and aggression, the study identifies five themes: Recruitment strategies and masculinity; from masculine failure to protecting sisters in faith; jihad and street culture; the warrior ideal; jihad, patriarchy, and brotherhood; and returning home and preventing re-emasculation. The empirical material is based on interviews with six Swedish jihadists and a former jihadist recruiter.

Abstract [en]

There has been a gap in knowledge regarding how civil society organisations (CSOs) interact at different levels when working to integrate refugees into the labour market—its causes and limitations. To contribute to filling the gap, this study employs both a rational choice perspective and sociological institutionalism to analyse how and why CSOs in Jönköping municipality in Sweden interacted with other relevant actors, both other CSOs (horizontally) and the public sector (vertically), to integrate refugees into the labour market after the refugee crisis in 2015 and what challenges they faced. It analyses different forms of interaction, that is, not only the relationship between the state and the civil society but also the one between different civil society organisations, which brings a new analytical dimension to the concept of coproduction to support refugees. By analysing the organisations’ interactions at different levels, the study identifies four themes: Striving to be flexible and service-minded organisations; between rational choice and institutionalisation of horizontal interactions; obstacles to horizontal interactions; and difficulty of measuring goal attainment.

Abstract [sv]

Inledning: Att inte stödja Ukraina kan leda till en snabb fred med en rysk seger, men den långsiktiga effekten riskerar att bli mer lidande när Ryssland och Kina inser att krig mot demokratier lönar sig. Det skriver Marco Nilsson, konfliktforskare.

Abstract [sv]

Ingress: 

Som terrorforskare blir man ofta förvånad när man läser svenska tidningar, lyssnar på radio eller ser på tv.

Jag menar att medier inte sällan är inkonsekventa när man kallar vissa våldsamma attacker för terrorism medan andra skäligen liknande attacker benämns något annat. Ett bra exempel är Palestina-Israel konflikten.

2024 (English)In: Turkish Studies, ISSN 1468-3849, E-ISSN 1743-9663Article, book review (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.)) Epub ahead of print
Abstract [en]

Introductory paragraph: Focusing on the roles and defiant performances of Kurdish women, The Mother, the Politician, and the Guerilla is an inquiry into the Kurdish-Turkish conflict and the political visions of Kurdish women. In exploring radical imagination, a path previously trodden by Franz Fanon, Nazan Üstündağ writes that texts have a rhythm: ‘As I travelled through Kurdistan, its rhythm has always been halay, and this book is written in its rhythm’ (p. 19). As she explains, halay is a dance where several individuals hold hands. In writing her book, she has been holding many hands from feminism and black studies to decolonial thought, just to name a few.

Abstract [sv]

Inledning: Hamas storskaliga terrorattack mot Israel den 7 oktober ledde till cirka 1200 dödsfall i Israel, vilket väckte mycket bestörtning i omvärlden. Men detta var bara en början. Snart eskalerade konflikten till ett krig som i dag troligtvis lett till fler än 22 000 döda palestinier och en humanitär katastrof i Gaza.

Abstract [sv]

Ingress: Radikaliserade ensamvargar är svåra att upptäcka och därmed en källa till oro för terrordåd i Sverige. Erfarna delar av jihadistiska nätverk tänker mer strategiskt och satsar hellre på spektakulära attentat, som i Moskva. Men risken finns att individer som nu rör sig mellan gäng och extremism gör and­ra kalkyler för kostnad och nytta, skriver statsvetaren Marco Nilsson.
