Abstract [en]

The high prevalence of brain injury incidents in adolescence and adulthood demands effective models for re-learning lost cognitive abilities. Impairment in brain injury survivors’ higher-level cognitive functions is common and a negative predictor for long-term out- come. We conducted two small-scale interventions (N = 12; 33.33% female) with persons with acquired brain injuries in two municipa- lities in Sweden. Age ranged from 17 to 65 years (M = 51.17, SD = 14.53). The interventions were dialogic, inquiry-based, and inspired by the Philosophy for Children Programme, a participatory thinking skills approach with documented higher-order cognitive outcomes, such as developed argumentation skills, in other target groups. Philosophical dialogues were conducted once a week in the two groups, totalling 12 dialogues per group. Group argumentation development was measured through compared scores from struc- tured observations of filmed dialogues early and late in the inter- vention. Large positive changes in mean scores from early to late in the intervention, together with constantly high facilitator quality, suggest argumentation development in the sample due to the intervention.

Abstract [en]

International trade and climate change have increased the movement potential for invasive alien species (IAS), including invasive pests and pathogens (IPPs), to the point where biological invasions are considered one of the major threats to biodiversity. However, practical implementation of plant health with regard to IAS and IPPs is difficult: regulative responsibilities are commonly spread across different authorities, and resources on the ground are often limited. Based on a legislative and literature review and semi-structured qualitative interviews (N = 7), the present study examines the possibilities and potential risks of monitoring and detection of forest invasive species in Sweden, with a particular focus on forest plant nurseries. The study thus adds practical implementation aspects concerning possibilities to limit the spread of invasive species in the plant trade.

Abstract [en]

Annually, more than ten million people in all age groups in the world experience an acquired brain injury (‘ABI’), which is a brain injury caused after birth by external forces (e.g. motor vehicle accidents) or certain internal factors (e.g. stroke). Brain injury survivors are often left with long-term impairments in cognitive, social, or emotional functioning. Despite a promising outset, research on the effectiveness of philosophical dialogues as an educational method for persons with ABI to increase their cognitive, social, and emotional functioning has, to our knowledge, been virtually non-existent. The present research project targets this and uses a pretest-posttest and mixed-method triangulation design and attempts to measure effects of two small-scale interventions carried out in the northern part of Sweden. In this text, the project’s research design, data production, and data processing are described.

Abstract [sv]

Ett stort antal personer i Sverige drabbas varje år av förvärvade hjärnskador, ofta med livslånga konsekvenser som nedsatta kognitiva, kommunikativa och sociala förmågor, samt minskat välbefinnande. Detta kan leda till utanförskap, svårigheter med studier, långvarig arbetslöshet och stort lidande för den drabbade och anhöriga, liksom till stora samhälleliga kostnader. Filosofiska samtal har visat sig ha positiva effekter för barn. Vår studie visar att sådana samtal framgångsrikt kan användas också i utbildning för personer med förvärvade hjärnskador. Den antyder positiva effekter inom bland annat kognitiv, kommunikativ och social utveckling.

Abstract [en]

According to previous reports, mental well-being is conducive to increased pro-social behavior and achievement in several domains. Previous studies have also indicated that P4C has a positive impact on mental well-being. In this paper, we discuss how philosophical dialogues affect the mental well-being of persons with acquired brain injuries (ABI), a group for which increases in mental and social well-being as well as performance are especially important. The paper is based on a small-scale study carried out by the researchers in the ongoing research project Education for Participation – Philosophizing back a ”new” life after acquired brain injury (funded by the Swedish Research Council). The research group has attempted to assess effects of two single group small-scale interventions (a weak experimental pre-test post-test design with the two experimental groups as control groups before the intervention started) that were made in the northern part of Sweden. The two groups participated in twelve philosophical dialogues each during a period of fifteen weeks from January 2015 to May 2015. In addition to the persons with ABI, staff participated in the philosophical dialogues in both groups. Besides cognition and communication measurements, the research group measured subjective well-being, which is targeted in this paper. Individual in-depth semi-structured interviews were carried out with all of the participants with ABI based on the following two subjective well-being measurements: (i) the Cantril Ladder, and (ii) The Satisfaction With Life Scale. To utilize the Cantril Ladder, we partly adapted it for the study population and translated it to Swedish. We used the recommended non-verbal ladder device ranging from 0–10, where the top was described as the best life, and the bottom the worst life, as the interviewee defined it. Each interviewee was asked questions about how he/she defined the best and the worst possible future life in terms of happiness and unhappiness, where he/she thinks he/she stands on the ladder today, where he/she stood five years ago, where he/she stood before the ABI, and where he/she will stand in the future. The Satisfaction With Life Scale ranges form 1–7 and contains the following five items: 1) ”In most ways my life is close to my ideal.”, 2) ”The conditions of my life are excellent.”, 3) ”I am satisfied with my life.”, 4) ”So far I have gotten the important things I want in life.”, and 5) ”If I could live my life over, I would change almost nothing.”. (We used a Swedish translation of the questions.) The data collection was finished in June 2015. In this paper, we present some preliminary results. In short, the processed data (to date) indicate that the philosophical dialogues were accompanied by an increase in subjective well-being among the participants with ABI, which makes the case stronger for P4C/PWC as an educational method applicable also in special needs education.

Ethics and Conflicts of Norms in Environmental Law
Abstract [sv]

En normkonflikt försätter rättssubjektet i en svår sits. Vissa normkonflikter medför till och med att ett rättssubjekt inte på något sätt kan agera helt och hållet lagenligt, så länge konflikten inte är löst. Detta innebär bland annat brister i rättssäkerhet samt att rättsreglerna inte lyckas guida rättssubjektets beteende, vilket brukar anses vara en av lagens viktigaste egenskaper. I uppsatsen har diskuterats frågor om uppkomst av, problem med samt hantering av normkonflikter inom miljörätten. Två fallstudier har använts för att diskutera olika typer av normkonflikter som förekommer i miljörättslig lagstiftning. Det har i uppsatsen konstaterats att det ena fallet är ett exempel på att lagen både förbjuder och tillåter samma beteende, och att det andra fallet är ett exempel på att lagen både förbjuder och föreskriver samma beteende. Vidare har det i uppsatsen föreslagits att motstridiga etiska antaganden som kan tänkas ligga bakom bestämmelserna kan utgöra delförklaringar till att normkonflikterna uppstår, och att det kan vara rimligt att använda etiska teorier vid tolkning av lagen i fall där det förekommer oklara till synes etiska uttryck i lagen.

 

Abstract [en]

A conflict of norms puts the legal subject in a difficult position. As a consequence of some conflicts of norms, a legal subject cannot act legally correct in any way, as long as the conflict is not solved. This brings about a lack of rule of law and also that the legal rules do not succeed to guide the legal subject’s actions, which is often regarded as one of the most important properties of the law. In the essay, questions about the emergence of, problems with and solutions to conflicts of law within the field of environmental law have been discussed. Two cases have been used to discuss different kinds of conflicts of norms that can be found in environmental legislation. It has been found in the essay that one of them is an example of the law both prohibiting and permitting the same behaviour, and that the other case is an example of the law both prohibiting and prescribing the same behaviour. Furthermore, it has been suggested in the essay that conflicting ethical assumptions that might underlie the rules can be partial explanations to why the conflicts of norms emerge, and that it can be reasonable to use ethical theories when interpreting the law in cases where unclear and seemingly ethical expressions occur in the law.
