    Var går gränsen egentligen?: - En studie om mobbningsförebyggande arbete i fritidshem2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Antal sidor: 37

    Syftet med studien är att skapa kunskap om hur fritidslärare beskriver det förebyggande arbetet mot mobbning i sina respektive verksamheter. Frågeställningarna är – Var går gränsen mellan kränkande handlingarna och skoj, enligt fritidslärarna? Hur beskriver fritidslärarna det förebyggande arbetet mot mobbning på fritidshemmen?

    Det sociokulturella perspektivet genomsyrar den kvalitativa studie där fokusgrupper hölls för datakonstruktion. Resultatet visar att fritidslärarna hade liknande syn på vad mobbning innebär. De var medvetna om att varje fritidslärare har olika gränser och att de reagerar olika beroende på situation. Fritidslärarna beskrev även svårigheten att uppmärksamma när barnen skojar eller mobbas eftersom det inte syns på ytan hos vissa barn. Detta gör det svårare för fritidslärarna att dra en gräns. Vid det förebyggande arbetet mot mobbning var relationsskapande mellan barn, vuxna och vårdnadshavare en viktig del av det arbetet. Vissa fritidslärare menade att trygghet och gemenskap i gruppen är en viktig faktor i det arbetet. Andra fritidslärare påpekade att det krävs regler, struktur, rutiner och ramar för att veta vad som gäller på fritidshemmet. Dessa bör skapas med hjälp av barnen för att de ska känna sig involverade.

    History as edutainment - Learning at a history theme park2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    When it comes to children’s relation to history, the mix of entertainment and education – edutainment – is an ever-growing trend, blurring the distinction between for example schools, museums and various theme parks. Edutainment establishments attracts growing numbers of children, families and schools every year. The edutainment business is said to offer new methods and different ways of spreading knowledge and tries to introduce novel, surprising approaches to attract visitors. Often the parks use hands-on-pedagogy and visitors get to experience and try features first-handed. The establishments thus expect an active, explorative and interested visitor. Then again, at times it is questioned what visitors actually learn from edutainment institutions, and if the entertainment does not more or less dominate a visit to these places. Research in the field is still scarce, particularly when it comes to studies where researchers follows visitors during their visits. This paper report on a study of 10–12-year-old school children’s visit to High Chaparral a western theme park in Sweden with between 175 000-180 000 visitors every year, a theme park distributing an historical journey back to the 1870s America. In the paper we investigate how the children take on different features and how they through their actions enacts the park. Using material from participant observations during the children’s visits to the park we specifically analyze how the children react to the parks use of history and the mix of entertainment and education at the park. The paper thus highlights the visiting children’s use of history and their contribution in the very learning experience.

    Elevers och lärares uppfattningar om elevdemokrati i årskurs fyra2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien är att beskriva och analysera elevers och lärares uppfattningar om elevdemokrati i undervisningen. Frågeställningarna som vi utgår ifrån är följande:

    • Hur uppfattar elever elevdemokrati?

    • Hur arbetar lärare för att utföra uppdraget att ”undervisningen skall bedrivas i demokratiska arbetsformer”?

    • Hur påverkar ett demokratiskt arbetssätt undervisningen och elever?

    • Hur uppfattar elever och lärare betydelsen av elevdemokrati?

    Studien bygger på kvalitativa intervjuer med både lärare och elever i årskurs fyra. Vi har genomfört intervjuerna i sex klasser med en lärare och tre elever från varje klass.

    Efter genomförandet av studien har vi fått en tydligare bild av hur elevinflytande kan se ut i skolan och vilken betydelsefull, svår och utmanande uppgift lärarna har att uppfylla läroplanens mål att undervisningen skall bedrivas i demokratiska arbetsformer. Till stor del tycker vi att lärarnas och elevernas syn på hur elevinflytandet i klassrummet fungerar stämmer väl överens.

    Vi uppmärksammade att alla lärare jobbar för att eleverna ska ha inflytande i skolan, det skiljer sig däremot hur mycket inflytande eleverna har och över vad. Lärarna verkade inte låta elevdemokrati genomsyra all undervisning utan de lät eleverna ha inflytande inom vissa ämnen och på lektioner då lärarna ansåg att det passade.

    Eleverna ansåg att de fick ha ett visst inflytande över undervisningen och att lärarna till en viss grad tog till vara på deras idéer. Det eleverna beskrev att de hade mest inflytande över var arbetssätt och redovisningsformer.

    Att vara perfekt: En kvalitativ intervjustudie om unga kvinnors berättelser kring prestationer och välmående i gymnasiet2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    To be perfect is a study about the experiences among young women in upper secondary school about how they see themselves as student vis-a-vis their mental health. These experiences are analysed from a school sanctioned femininity, which intend to expose how the structures of school affects the young women. This femininity is based on the concept of “how to be” a young woman, which the school both encourage and support. With a qualitative interview study the following experiences of the young women are examined: Their view at the role of the school, how they view themselves as students and how the school affects them. The material is analysed through a phenomenological research approach to illustrate the essence of the phenomenon. The study shows us that the school which is an important part in the respondents’ lives, also entails stress to the young women according to themselves. The stress, which in some cases leads to anxiety, is based on the high demands and high expectations the young women experience. These demands and expectations are based on their own pressure within, but also based on what others demand and expects from them. This means that both the respondents themselves and teachers and other students sees them as” good students”. To be a good student is a role which affects the young women to behave in a certain way, where perfection is the main purpose to achieve. This perfection is based on behavior and how you perform good grades in school, and can be linked to how it is to be a young woman in upper secondary school. Thus, the young woman has an ideal which she has to follow to “succeed” in school, and to be seen as the good student.

    The multiple faces of insecurity: An analysis of security from the Chocoano women's perspective2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis explores the complexity of the concept “security” in theory and practice. The traditional security concept is replaced by a human-centred security approach in order to analyse women's security,. The stories of Afro-Colombian and indigenous women from the poor and war-torn region Chocó in Colombia demonstrate that the insecurity of the Chocoano women is not only created by the armed conflict in Colombia, but that insecurity fundamentally has its roots in societal structures and systems as well. This thesis argues that the category “woman” is insufficient and that an intersectional approach is the only way to fully understand the Chocoano women’s security and insecurity. In the case of Chocó, the population's ways of relating to the ancestral territories is one example of how ethnicity and culture play a mayor role for their security. The concept human security will be embraced for its recognition of the intimate relation between human rights, development and individual security. Galtung's theory on violence will also be used in order to complete the picture of how the direct and indirect violence that Chocoano women suffer from is reinforced by unequal power relations.

     

    Furthermore, women’s possibilities to act for security, mainly through nongovernmental organizations and the Church, are investigated. The peripheral positions of the Chocoano women in Colombia as well as within their own cultures are found to be barriers to women’s effective participation in security policy. It is also concluded that the relation between security and activism for human rights is rather complex and contradictory in Chocó. Finally, it is argued that there exist several parallel and competing discourses of security. The predominant discourse of security in Colombia ignores many of the dangers that women in Chocó are exposed to. The concept of security must be seriously challenged both in theory and in practice if women’s security is to be guaranteed in Colombia.

    Strategisk kompetensutveckling: En organisations strategiska förhållningssätt till kompetensutveckling2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In the case study we have examined how a competence-based human resource strategy functions in an organization. Due to the extent of the conceptual area we have made a restriction to solely examine competence development. The purpose of the study is to gain understanding of the strategic human resource development within an organization. We also examine the different tools and methods an organization use in order to develop adequate competence, as well as the different obstacles and challenges that is imposed upon the work. Previous research has found that a strategic approach to human resource development is critical for the survival and success of businesses. Researchers agree that there is a need for development activities to be based on the organization´s needs, customer requirements and future goals in order to be successful. The purpose of the activities is hence a crucial and central part of a strategic approach. The case study is based on a phenomenological approach and the collection of data has been made through seven semi-structured interviews. The interviews were conducted in a politically directed organization with approximately 5000 employees and during the interviews a thematic questionnaire with open-ended questions were used. The analysis of the material was then made through a five-step model, where the goal was to highlight the most significant components of the phenomenon. The study has shown the organization´s strategic approach and has revealed various factors that make it difficult to maintain. The tools and methods that the organization is using in order to develop adequate competence is, for example, a form for education requests, continuous improvements, networks, web based education and an electronic platform for education. The obstacles and challenges that have been made visible are external factors, economic factors, cooperation and distribution of responsibility. The study also shows that it is important to carefully consider which method should be used when investing in different types of competence development activities. It has shown that it is important to make considerations that are not purely based on economic perspectives in terms of reducing costs, but the focus should be aimed at implementing the most effective learning. Both previous research and the case study have shown that managers are given a key role in the work regarding the human resource development. Due to this we find it interesting to further investigate the manager´s perspective. Our suggestion for future research is to examine the managers role and responsibility regarding these questions.

    Talent Management: Utan Talent Management?2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this bachelor level thesis is to compare a Swedish public authority’s practical work with competence supply towards the components of Talent Management. The study is aiming to contrast traditional competence supply operations with the more modern concept of Talent Management. The writers have chosen to collect empirical data through interviews with six employees combined with analysis of internal documents. The result shows that parts of the public authority’s work with competence supply have similarities to Talent Management, but some of the components are left out. Based on the results, the discussions shows that this public authority is struggling with united approaches towards competence development, competence supply and leadership because of delegated responsibilities from a central level. In the end the writers are presenting an overall conclusion that is based on the organizations successful work within the blocks of attract and terminate while the work within the block of retain and develop varies within the organization, partly because of delegated responsibility. Finally suggestions for improvement within the organization and further research are presented.

    ”Det är nyckeln in i livet, allt blir lättare när jag har språket”: En fenomenografisk studie om språkinlärningens betydelse för integrationen hos nyanlända kvinnor och män2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Living in a new country poses new challenges. The immigrants must adapt to new traditions, a new culture and a new language. Learning to communicate in a new language is for most people a complicated and long process. They face many challenges and the immigrant’s motivation and willingness must be strong.

     

    The purpose of this paper has been to investigate what views immigrant have on the importance of language for integration and what factors they perceive as central to their language learning. The essay is based on previous research as well as the collected interview material using a phenomenografic research analysis. A qualitative study with phenomenografical analysis has been conducted, based on data from semi-structured interviews. Fourteen participants took part in the conducted interviews, half of the participants were men and half of them were women. The participants were all students at SFI in Nässjö Municipality and the interviews were conducted at Nässjö Lärcenter. The interviews were conducted using an interview guide that gave scope for follow-up questions. The result has then been analyzed by means of a phenomenographic research analysis, starting with previous research and the collected interview material in order to answer the essay questions. The result presented five categories that were sorted according to the participants conceptions that arose from the interviews. The categories focused on their general attitude towards language learning and these were: The happy one with positive attitude, the grateful one who wants to give back to society, the survivor and the practical, the stated and frustrated as well as the goal-conscious and ambitious who thirsts for knowledge. In the result, it appeared that language is a very important tool for integration. The result also showed that for many of the participants, the language was both the most difficult and the most important matter in integrating into society. The participants discussed in several cases that without the language one cannot be a part of society and that the Swedish language is a key in to Sweden and the society. This highlights the importance of both institutional language education and informal ways of learning the language.

    Staff acting resiliently at two hospital wards2019In: Leadership in Health Services, ISSN 1751-1879, E-ISSN 1751-1887, Vol. 32, no 3, p. 445-457Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    PURPOSE: The purpose of this paper is to understand how the hospital staff (nurses and physicians) at two hospital wards have coped with everyday work having leaders in conflict or longer periods without one or the other leader and whether the way the staff handled the challenges was resilient.

    DESIGN/METHODOLOGY/APPROACH: Through semi-structured interviews with the staff at the two wards, the authors analysed how the staff were working, if they had cooperation and interdisciplinary cooperation, how they would handle uncertainties and how they coped with the absence of their leaders.

    FINDINGS: The staff at both wards were handling the everyday work in a resilient way. The authors argue that to increase the resilience in an organisation, leaders should acknowledge the need to establish strong emotional ties among staff and at the same time ensure role structures that make sense in the everyday work.

    ORIGINALITY/VALUE: This study reports on original work and shows what decision makers could do to increase resilience in an organisation. This paper shows that the organisational context is important for the staff to act resiliently. As leaders come and go, it can be important for the stability of the organisation to promote the staff in acting resiliently independent of the leader situation.

    Women’s fuelwood collection and deforestation: Effects on women’s everyday lives and environments in Kabadio, Casamance and Diagane Barka, Sine-Saloum.2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Previous research and literature commonly agree to the fact that women, especially rural women, is the most vulnerable group in society. Many of them tend to be found in the poorest sections of society. Women depend on natural resources for their livelihoods and are discriminated concerning labour division and access, control and knowledge about natural resources such as forests. Changes in the climate and natural degradation, especially forest degradation are threatening their livelihoods. Gender relations are structured around managing the environment where women are seen as major users and managers of the forests. The aim and the research questions of this study is to examine how women in Senegal experience that their everyday life and livelihood activities within fuelwood collection have been affected by deforestation. Furthermore, what reason do women see behind deforestation and the changes in their local environments. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with eleven women from two villages in southern Senegal in the region of Casamance and Sine-Saloum. All these women were involved in fuelwood collecting activities. The result of the study was analysed through previous research, feminist political ecology approach and through definitions of livelihood and sustainable development in order to explain women’s experiences and activities within fuelwood collection. The result found that all women experiences changes in their livelihoods because of deforestation. The amount of time spent on fuelwood collecting activities increased while it less time was left to other activities. Women’s income and resources from the forests reduced or disappeared and the main focus turned into cover the needs of the household. Women’s personal everyday lives have been negatively affected by deforestation. Heavy work had negative health effects on the women. Some women have left fuelwood collection for alternative sources of income because it has become too demanding. Furthermore, the results showed that women are worried about their future since they are in mutual need of forests as well as fuelwood to survive.

    Ageing and Care Among Disabled Couples2013In: Ageing with disability: a lifecourse perspective / [ed] Eva Jeppsson Grassman and Anna Whitaker, Bristol: Policy Press , 2013, p. 109-127Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    "This is the first book to address the issue of ageing after a long life with disability. It breaks new ground through its particular life course perspective, examining what it means to age with a physical or mental disability and what the implications are of 'becoming old' for people who have had extensive disabilities for many years. These people may have had to leave the labour market early, and the book looks at available care resources, both formal and informal. Ageing with disability challenges set ideas about successful ageing, as well as some of those about disabilities. The life course approach that is used unfolds important insights about the impact of multiple disabilities over time and on the phases of life. The book highlights the meaning of care in unexplored contexts, such as where ageing parents are caregivers or regarding mutual care in disabled couples. These are areas of knowledge which have, to date, been totally neglected."--Publisher's website.

    Abstract [en]

    Within disability studies and feminist care research as fields, problems regarding "caring" have been framed in different ways that set the care giver and care receiver as opposing stakeholders. Both views have however tended to limit the discussions on care to certain issues. Consequently, other meanings and actors of care had become invisible. What this paper shows is that studying care as enacted in relationships not only provides an alternative way to discuss care outside the traditional disciplinary frames but also can contribute to a broadened understanding of what actions to define as "caring". Studies that ground their discussion of care in relationships already question the definition of "carers" as mostly able-bodied women and "care" mostly as instrumental tasks. What these studies also do is to broaden understanding of care through raising it as something ongoing and temporal. Both carer / care receiver roles and the nature of what one defines as caring can thus change over time. This can lead to interesting and broadened discussions in disability studies, where the word "care" has long been linked to dependence and "help" often limited to discourse on assistance. For example, disabled people as both carers and receivers of help can be a possibility for study

    “The right hand helps the left”: Care in couplehood where both partners are disabled2010In: Disability Studies ConferenceLancaster University7th-9thSeptember, 2010: Book of abstracts, Lancaster, UK: Lancaster University , 2010, p. 159-159Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Couplehood is an area of relationship between disabled people that is underresearched in comparison to self-evident family relationships with their parents and siblings. Although disabled people do enter into relationships with one another and there are expanding networks between disabled adults, few texts explore partnerships of love between the physically disabled. Most texts that discuss disability and relationships usually only describe spousal care by an able-bodied partner to a disabled one. It is also taken for granted that the disability was acquired after the marriage. But how does spousal care look like in a relationship where both partners are seen to be in need of help? How do the actualizations of such care change over time, over changing bodily states and with age? This paper describes a newly started PhD project placed at the intersection of disability studies, care studies and gerontology. The aim of the project is to explore the actualizations of care between disabled couples above the age of 55, who can both look back on a long relationship together, as well as look ahead to their future. Evidently, what is of interest to the project are not couples who acquire disability with advanced age, but rather those who have acquired impairments earlier in life. The focus is on the concept of care understood in a broader meaning, which challenges notions of dependence in care. The preliminary results of the qualitative interview study will be discussed. Interviews have been conducted with couples, where both partners have a long-term disability and have had the opportunity to live long lives together with their impairments. The dichotomy between caregiver and care receiver become less clear as partners usually take on both these roles simultaneously. Care in the relationships might also have different meanings and actualizations depending on the changing needs and bodily states of both partners.

    Managing complexity in organizations: Analyzing and discussing a managerial perspective on the nature of organizational leadership2018In: Behavioral Development, ISSN 1942-0722, Vol. 23, no 1, p. 51-62Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Alternative ways of organizing are emerging, questioning and challenging conventional assumptions regarding organizational structures, managerial roles, and leadership. In addition, new emerging industries, such as the Internet industry, possibly fuel the development of new ways of organizing. This article examines and discusses stratified systems theory in terms of its key concepts, constructs, support, and limitations, as well as discussing its perspectives and underlying assumptions, applicability in academic research, and usefulness for practitioners. The theory is positioned as a modernistic approach and an early attempt, and, in some ways, a contribution to the integration of leadership and organizational theory, and of theory and practice. From the practitioner’s perspective, this article provides no general academic support for the proposed value of applying the theory and its extension for organizational design and improvement. However, applicability of the theory in contemporary research has some support, but there are differences in its support, and limitations to the key concepts and constructs should be considered. This article calls for further research exploring the support and limitations of the key concepts and constructs from theories within the field of adult development, and furthermore, research that explores what is really new regarding hierarchical structures, managerial roles, and leadership in new types of organizations. Finally, research that explores how organizational design can shape and leverage leadership development is called for.

    Analyzing roles and leadership in organizations from cognitive complexity and meaning-making perspectives2018In: Behavioral Development, ISSN 1942-0722, Vol. 23, no 1, p. 63-80Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Organizations can be seen as social systems with hierarchical structures and roles at different levels of complexity with correspondingly different complexity of tasks. This article applies the perspectives of two theories from the field of adult development, namely, the model of hierarchical complexity (MHC) and ego development theory (EDT) to analyze stratified systems theory (SST). Although the theories are not regarded as strictly comparable and commensurable on account of differences in basic assumptions and methods of the theories, the analysis leads to the conclusion that descriptions of role complexity and individual capabilities in SST, to some extent, correspond to descriptions of developmental levels according to the MHC and EDT. Both comparisons support the notion that task and leadership complexity increases with organizational level, and thereby demonstrates support for the existence of qualitatively different levels of leadership. However, based on the methodological choices of the study, it is beyond the scope of the article to validate the key concepts, constructs in SST, as well as provide support or nonsupport for the proposed value of application in practice. Furthermore, we point out the lack of a more thorough analysis and comparison between the theories built on rich empirical material. Nevertheless, we conclude that the MHC, EDT and SST are fruitful lenses that can further the understanding of organizations as social systems with hierarchical structures.

    Globalisation in the lecture room?: gender and cultural diversity in work groups2011In: Issues in educational research, ISSN 0313-7155, E-ISSN 1837-6290, Vol. 21, no 1, p. 88-103Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper empirically investigates the relationship between cultural and gender diversity and performance in groups of business students working on complex assignments. The study finds that gender diversity in student groups has a positive influence on group outcomes, while cultural diversity, irrespective of its conceptualisation, leads to negative group outcomes. Process variables such as communication, conflict and effectiveness of problem solving were found not to be influenced by demographic diversity or to have any effect on group outcomes. While the non-finding in group process investigation might be attributed to methodological difficulties, the negative influence of cultural diversity in student groups on performance indicates the further need for facilitation of coaching students in intercultural communications and cross-cultural understanding among educators.

    Government decentralization and disaster impact, an exploratory study2013In: Building Resilience 2013: Individual, institutional and societal coping strategies to address the challenges associated with disaster risk : book of abstracts / [ed] Martin Hall, Salford: University of Salford , 2013, no 1Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to explore the link between decentralization and the impact of natural disasters through empirical analysis. It addresses the issue of the importance of the role of local government in disaster response through different means of decentralization. By studying data available for 50 countries, it allows to develop the knowledge on the role of national government in setting policy that allows flexibility and decision making at a local level and how this devolution of power influences the outcome of disasters. The study uses Aaron Schneider’s definition and rankings of decentralization, the EM-DAT database to identify the amount of people affected by disasters on average per year as well as World Bank Indicators and the Human Development Index (HDI) to model the role of local decentralization in mitigating disasters. With a multivariate regression it looks at the amount of affected people as explained by fiscal, administrative and political decentralization, government expenses, percentage of urbanization, total population, population density, the HDI and the overall Logistics Performance Indicator (LPI). The main results are that total population, the overall LPI and fiscal decentralization are all significant in relation to the amount of people affected by disasters for the countries and period studied. These findings have implication for government’s policies by indicating that fiscal decentralization by allowing local governments to control a bigger proportion of the countries revenues and expenditures plays a role in reducing the amount of affected people in disasters. This can be explained by the fact that local government understand their own needs better in both disaster prevention and response which helps in taking the proper decisions to mitigate the amount of people affected in a disaster. The reduction in the implication of national government might also play a role in reducing the time of reaction to face a disaster. The main conclusion of this study is that fiscal control by local governments can help reduce the amount of people affected by disasters.

    "Protect our planet from Trump": En studie om miljöorganisationen Sierra Clubs ökade stöd efter presidentskiftet2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores the evolution of the environmental organisation Sierra Club, in relation to the United States presidential election in 2016, through a theoretical perspective. It examines if the theories of framing and political opportunity structures can explain the organisation’s success. The political context was analysed using McAdam’s four dimensions of political opportunity structures in order to determine its restrictions for social movements. A content analysis was applied to Sierra Club’s Twitter posts from a three week period in 2016 and 2015 respectively for the purpose of comparing the rhetoric during the two different time periods based on the key concepts of Benford and Snow’s framing theory. The results show that the election itself contributed to instability between elite alignments while Sierra Club’s Twitter-posts changed tone to become more aggressive and more specific in focusing the blame. The chosen theories proved suitable for analysing the occurrence but we cannot however disregard the possibility of other results emerging when using a different theoretical approach.

    The livelihoods of female seaweed farmers: A study about women's experiences of old and new techniques of seaweed farming on Zanzibar, Tanzania.2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Seaweed has been hit hard by climate change around the world. The island of Zanzibar, which is the world’s third biggest exporter of seaweed, is one of the places where seaweed is affected. 80 percent of the seaweed farmers on Zanzibar are women who are directly affected by climate change since they are making a living from seaweed farming. New efforts to tackle the impact of climate change on seaweed has been made on Zanzibar through the SEA PoWer project which is a new technique of growing seaweed and enables twenty-four female seaweed farmers to grow in deep and cooler waters instead of the more traditional way which is in shallow waters. The aim of this study is to, from a livelihood perspective, examine women’s experiences and perceptions of the old versus the new techniques of farming seaweed on Zanzibar, Tanzania.  The research questions for this study focus on finding out the women’s experiences and perceptions of the changes in the techniques in relation to opportunities for livelihoods through seaweed farming. Furthermore, this study investigates if women experience conflicts of interest with men regarding the use of ocean space. Semi-structured interviews with eleven women who have used the new technique of growing seaweed were conducted and the results was analyzed in the light of previous research, through the definitions of livelihood and gender, and the theoretical concept of feminist political ecology. The result has shown that all women experienced improvements in their livelihoods through the new technique of seaweed farming. One clear improvement was that there were no negative health effects when using the new technique. The study also found that there are no conflicts of interest between men and women regarding the use of ocean space when using the new technique of seaweed farming. The women had a positive view on the future and had high expectations, they had already noticed positive effects on their livelihoods in form of social, human, physical capital and health.

    Cross-cultural interview studies using interpreters: systematic literature review.2006In: Journal of Advanced Nursing, ISSN 0309-2402, E-ISSN 1365-2648, Vol. 55, no 6, p. 723-735Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    AIM: This paper reviews how the interpreter's role is described in empirically based, qualitative cross-cultural interview studies and how trustworthiness is determined. BACKGROUND: Increased immigration during the past decades has created a multiethnic society in many countries. This development poses a challenge to healthcare staff, in that they need to understand how people from different cultures experience health and illness. One way to assess immigrants' experiences is through cross-cultural interview studies, involving an interpreter. Thorough knowledge of the interpreter's role is needed in order to increase the trustworthiness of this kind of nursing research. METHOD: Literature searches were conducted from October to November 2004 using PubMed, CINAHL, Psycinfo, Sociological abstract, Your Journals@ovid, and Eric databases. Qualitative interview studies written in English and performed with an interpreter were included. The Matrix Method was used to review the literature. FINDINGS: In almost all of the 13 relevant papers found, the role of the interpreter(s) in the research process was only sparsely described. In addition, all studies except one employed different techniques to established trustworthiness. The most common techniques were prolonged engagement, member check or triangulation, the latter performed either on the data, investigators or methods. CONCLUSION: Methodological issues with respect to interpreters have received only limited attention in cross-cultural interview studies. Researchers in the field of nursing need to consider (1) the interpreter's role/involvement in the research process; (2) the interpreter's competence and the style of interpreting; (3) the interpreter's impact on the findings. This information is a prerequisite when trying to determine the trustworthiness of a cross-cultural study.

    Diabetes: a cross-cultural interview study of immigrants from Somalia.2007In: Journal of Clinical Nursing, ISSN 0962-1067, E-ISSN 1365-2702, Vol. 16, no 11C, p. 305-314Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: To describe how diabetic immigrants from Somalia experience everyday life in Sweden and how they manage diabetes-related problems, with inclusion of a gender perspective. Background: To treat and care for minority populations successfully, healthcare staff in Sweden must thoroughly understand the illness experiences of different ethnic groups. However, no studies have so far been reported that focus on immigrants from Somalia with diabetes. Design: Descriptive, qualitative interview study with 19 diabetic adults born in Somalia and now living in Sweden. Method: Cross-cultural interviews with the aid of an interpreter. The transcribed interviews were subjected to qualitative latent content analysis, resulting in sub-themes and themes. Results: Four themes emerged: experience of distress in everyday life; everyday life continues as before; comprehensibility gives a feeling of control; and being compliant. A major finding was the variation in how the participants managed the fasting month of Ramadan. Several participants fasted and did not see the diabetes as an obstacle, others did see it as an obstacle or indicated that fasting was not compulsory for a sick person. Conclusions: This study provides healthcare staff with information about how a minority group experience and manage diabetes. The results indicate the importance of considering cultural background, as well as religious traditions such as Ramadan, in diabetes care. They also indicate that men and women differ in their reaction to diabetes and that care should be adapted to this. Relevance for clinical practice: It is important to develop evidence-based guidelines for diabetes care in ethnic groups that are fasting during Ramadan to prevent complications and promote relevant self-care. Further, the prescribed dietary advice must be culturally appropriate.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to develop a thorough understanding of the representation of homeless older people and an insight into contributing factors as to why they remain homeless. To meet the purpose of the study, qualitative interviews have been conducted with organizations that come into contact with older people in homeless situations. Themes have been identified based on the experiences that describe the current situation of the elderly in homeless situations including the contributing factors and the amount of time spent in homelessness. The themes detail how the elderly are excluded from various relief efforts and how the backbreaking life can be, and also suggestions for homelessness preventive measures. These themes were interpreted on an individual basis and a structural approach and standards, normalization, and categorization. The study's conclusion highlights the importance of further study in this area, specifically in relation to the biological age significance in relation to the social support system categorizations. Another important factor is to study the differences between long and short-term homelessness in older people.

    Abstract [en]

    This article takes its starting point in the discussions regarding intersecting discourses of gender and age and the lived experience of older women. The main objective is to discuss the experience of womanhood among older women and to demonstrate their active role in creating spaces for themselves and their friends and affecting each other. The study is based on narrative interviews with female members of the University of the Third Age (U3A). The main findings describe older women who actively engage with discourses of gender to embark on positive constructions of womanhood. They create their own spaces for women’s activism that are filled with positive emotions mobilized to support each other. This article discusses such findings and their relevance to the study of old age and gender. As a result, it serves as an invitation to think and feel differently about older women and their experience of womanhood.

    Abstract [en]

    This multiple case study has the purpose of examining how the Arctic indigenous population is given regional influence in issues that directly or indirectly are affecting their traditional livelihoods in the Arctic areas belonging to Russia, the United States, Canada, Denmark (Greenland) and Norway. The study applies the method of Ethnographic Content Analysis and uses the international relation theories of liberalism and realism to analyze the nations’ Arctic policies and institutional processes that affects their Arctic indigenous population. The matter of influence within the states institutional processes is of vital significance for the continued survival of the Arctic indigenous population, and since the Arctic is believed to become a new global area of development, it is important to identify the dangers that bad strategies, policies, legal framework and cooperation could create in relation to the well-being of the Arctic indigenous people. The result of the study show that the Arctic is important both as a geostrategic and an economic perspective for the countries, which limits or obstruct the influence given to the indigenous peoples in issues affecting both parties. The majority of the countries recognize the Arctic indigenous peoples’ human rights, but the countries differ in both how the rights are implemented and to what extent the indigenous population are part of the implementation. The difference lies especially in how power is distributed between the state and the indigenous people, where some countries showcase a strong centralized power within the government and other states devote a greater space for self-determination and autonomy. Generally, the states’ role for decision-making is therefore of great importance, influenced by both realistic and liberal values. When acting upon liberal values, the states actively work towards cooperation with the indigenous people and recognizing the indigenous people’s right to influence, to generate a representative depiction of the society. However, the nation state’s central role in decision-making display that realistic values still are paramount in the structure of society and in the formation of national interests and policies.
