Abstract [en]

In many countries across the world, and especially in Europe, we have seen an increasing concern with management as a key component of new governance and policy reforms in healthcare (Dent, 2003). In this chapter we focus on the new management of healthcare and the gendered actors who work to deliver the human services involved. By ʼnew’ management, we are referring to what has been called New Public Management (NPM), thought to have developed in many countries around the world from the 1970s onwards with the purpose of reducing costs, increasing efficiencies and accountabilities, and generally enhancing the quality of human services and experience of users (see Chandler et al., 2002; Dent et al., 2004; McLaughlin et al., 2002). Accordingly, our focus is on the management and implementation of healthcare, and of those involved in its delivery. In the middle of these processes are the new managers, often professionals, charged with responsibility for delivery. This is not to suggest that healthcare, like other human services within the public realm, has not been managed and organized in the past. It is rather to point to the growth of a new group or cadre of workers involved in the implementation of the new work regimes who draw on private sector management techniques and mindsets in their attempt to achieve the desired ends. We consider these changes with particular reference to gender (Barry et al., 2003).

Abstract [en]

This article considers the changing nature of social work in England and Sweden in the context of neoliberal reforms, and the consequences of the ongoing shifts to marketisation and differentiation, managerialism and performativity. Drawing on secondary sources and some interview data from English and Swedish social workers, the article argues that social workers in England and Sweden face similar shifts as marketisation, differentiation, managerialism and its related performativity reshape the occupation, all related to the influence of the macro-context of neoliberalism. ‘Evidence based practice' has become elevated as an important approach in line with increasing managerialism and performativity, affecting micro processes of everyday working life. Differences between the two countries lie largely in the timing of reforms and how social workers respond to them in organised ways – through mobilisation within the profession in England and through trades unions and local authorities in Sweden. The changes create uncertainty for social workers; while they are not merely passive victims of change they face difficult conditions in which to forge alternative models of professional practice. Contrary to what might have been expected, given the different social, political and historical legacies in Sweden and England of social democracy and liberalism respectively, comparing the social work occupation in these two countries finds many more similarities than differences in how marketisation, differentiation, managerialism and performativity impact on the occupation.

Abstract [en]

This paper examines the consequences of the turn to managerialism in higher education in England and Sweden, following the introduction of New Public Managementreforms. The paper considers some of the gender implications, which are explored through the accounts of eight, long-serving, female academics. The first interviews were conducted in 2001 with two female academics in Sweden and two in England, and followed up ten years later in 2011-2012 with four new interviewees, all long-serving female academics. The same interview questions were used at both occasions. While there were differences between the two countries, there was also much similarity. In 2001 respondents generally presented a negative picture of the reforms and highlighted the problems of adjusting to them. Ten years later there seemed to be more accommodation to the reforms. And yet the gendered implications of this are significant: women academics are clearly finding it difficult to pursue research to the extent that they would wish, while they are taking on many teaching and administrative functions.

Abstract [en]

In this article, we consider the implications of managerial reforms and performativity in higher education in Sweden and England, following the introduction of new public management and the development of neoliberalism. The article examines some gendered implications by drawing on the experiences of eight experienced female academics. The data are drawn from a dataset of interviews. The first interviews we present were conducted at the beginning of 2001 with two long-serving academics from each country. The rest of the interviews we present were conducted 10 years later, with academics who were, like the previous interviewees, long serving. The same interview questions were used for all the interviews. We found differences between the two countries, in terms of social democratic and liberal traditions, as well as similarities. In the earlier interviews, we found the reforms to be viewed negatively, while the later interviews suggested some accommodation in respect of research and management. Yet, despite this, the female academics in both countries had become increasingly subjected to performativity and were experiencing difficulties in undertaking research as they took on more teaching and administration.

Abstract [en]

We consider the rise of evidence based practice in social work in Sweden and England, countries with social democratic and liberal welfare regimes respectively, through macro (neo-liberal), meso (new public management) and micro (working routine) levels; we also consider its relation to evidence based medicine. Our analysis shows that outcomes are uncertain and subject to resistance, suggesting the reforms are encountering difficulties embedding and securing support from those involved.

Abstract [en]

This article considers some of the ways in which neoliberalism, through the processes of managerialism, has impacted on the occupation of social work in Sweden and the UK. It is argued that there are similar implications in both countries, through the managerial drive for increased performance in economy, efficiency and effectiveness, but also in the development of evidence based practice. Whilst the key focus of the article is on similarities between these twocountries, differences are also noted. There is also recognition of the way in which resistance to the reconfiguration of social work is taking shape.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper is to examine the ways in which leadership at middle management level in the public realm is gendered. This is attempted largely through a consideration of academic literature, supported by some empirical findings from a research investigation into higher education and social work in Sweden and England and a review of literature that reveals varying types of leadership characterized as masculinist. Taking the position that context shapes social relationships and subject positions, and provides opportunities as well as constraints, we consider leadership in the public sector under the sway of newpublic management, framed by neo-liberalism and the valorization of competition, selfinterested instrumentality, uncertainty and risk, operationalized in public sector organizations through performative regimes. It is argued that while some women and men are willing participants in the new regimes, others are antagonistic or ambivalent, finding themselves mired in neo-bureaucratic processes of surveillance and control, often stuck in occupational cul-de-sacs. It is contended that neo-liberalism and new public management are associated with masculinist forms of rationality that elevate individual winners and losers and divert attention from collective issues of gender. Rather than focus on gendered styles of leadership it is suggested that it is more important to look at their gendered performance and effects.
