    The Uncertain Rise of Evidence Based Practice in Social Work in Sweden and England, in Contexts Framed by New Public Management and Neo-liberalism2014Inngår i: Sorge: Arbeit, Verhältnisse, Regime, Baden-Baden: Nomos Verlagsgesellschaft mbH & Co. KG , 2014, s. 311-324Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    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.

    Workplace stress in the United Kingdom: contextualising difference2003Inngår i: Work stress: studies of the context, content and outcomes of stress : a book of readings, Amityville, N.Y.: Baywood Pub. , 2003, s. 33-51Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    At the risk of stereotyping, workplace stress would seem to have joined the weather and sports failure as a fairly standard topic of conversation for "whinging poms." This chapter does not examine whether these complaints are valid or whether workers in the United Kingdom experience more workplace stress than those in other nations, but it does seek to explore the extent of "stress" among particular groups of employees in the United Kingdom, using a variety of secondary sources. In doing so it demonstrates the use of a sociological analysis that sets "stress" in its social and institutional context

    Emphasizing technology: socio-technical implications2005Inngår i: Information Technology and People, ISSN 0959-3845, E-ISSN 1758-5813, Vol. 18, nr 4, s. 343-358Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – This article aims to focus attention on users of information technology (IT), especially mobile telephony. It focuses on what people actually say about mobile technology but also aims to pay attention to what they do not talk about, what is found in the silence, especially with new technology when much can be taken for granted. This latter is, according to Foucault, even more important to understand. Design/methodology/approach – The research draws on empirical research through 11 semi-structured interviews and interviews with five focus groups, comprising between four and eight care assistants in each group. The interviews were with three women and three men between 25-70 years old, five female public sector middle managers and care assistants from five focus groups at social services departments in the north of Sweden. A Foucauldian approach is adopted to interpret the findings and explore how their locations within the circuits of socio-technical networks engender uncertainty with mobile technology. The present spread of IT reinforces a belief that people are integrated into the circuits of socio-technical networks. Findings – The findings suggest, on the one hand, that new technologies like mobile communication can be used to organise our everyday lives, whilst, on the other, there are risks with the new technologies, which can discipline discourses. Originality/value – These issues are discussed from a sociological and informatics perspective.

    Gender, movement, management and the importance of disappointment2007Inngår i: Proceedings of EURAM 2007, European Academy of Management , 2007Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper focuses on disappointment as a key concept and socially embedded phenomena, useful in understanding the dynamic relationship of organisation members to gender and management. It is shown that the importance of disappointment lies in part in its ability to focus attention on hopes and expectations, as well as on blockages, failures and defeats, and on the potential for change and reflection that it engenders. We argue for its utility with reference specifically to the ways in which women and men managers position themselves in relation to the women's movement in the light of disappointments faced. This helps us understand the origins of support for varieties of feminism as well as accounting for the support of some men, as well as the backlash from others. It is further contended that the consequences of disappointment feed into social movement processes and lead to a consideration of connections between organisations, civil society, political transformation, and diversity more generally.

    Social Work in Movement: Marketisation, Differentiation and Managerial Performitivity in Sweden and England2015Inngår i: International Journal of Social Work and Human Services Practice, ISSN 2332-6832, Vol. 3, nr 3, s. 109-117Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    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.

    Neoliberalism, managerialism and the reconfiguring of social work in Sweden and the United Kingdom2013Inngår i: Organization, ISSN 1350-5084, E-ISSN 1461-7323, Vol. 20, nr 4, s. 534-550Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    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.

    Old dreams, new means: an exploration of visions and situated knowledge in information technology2007Inngår i: Gender, Work and Organization, ISSN 0968-6673, E-ISSN 1468-0432, Vol. 14, nr 4, s. 371-387Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to explore the tensions and ambivalences of new and old technology and political visions of keeping viable, quality care and services for elderly citizens through the use of new information technologies. The visions of politicians and social service managers of keeping alive the welfare state and retaining its ability to offer quality care and services for elderly citizens are compared with the experiences of female care assistants and their expectations of technology. A feminist figure — the cyborg — will be used in this exploration. We consider how care assistants are integrated in networks of socio-technical relations between humans and non-humans, and the extent to which gender or asymmetrical power relations between women and men intervene in their stories.

    The development of contract research organisations in Sweden: health care, privatisation and neo-liberalism2011Inngår i: New technology, work and employment, ISSN 0268-1072, E-ISSN 1468-005X, Vol. 26, nr 3, s. 196-209Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the role of Contract Research Organisations (CROs) in Swedish health care and pharmaceutical development. Before the recent rise of CROs - which are centrally placed between pharmaceutical companies, public sector health care organisations and test participants in an industry noted for its high financial turnover - recruitment of participants and management of clinical trials were undertaken by academic researchers. Things have changed. In the US, this new state of affairs has been argued to be the outcome of decreasing revenue for physicians and decreasing access to treatment for patients (Fisher 2009). This paper seeks to extend our understanding of the purpose and operation of CROs by reviewing existing literature (cf Mirowski and Van Horn 2005; Fisher 2009), comparing this with data on CROs in Sweden, and placing the study within its neo-liberal context marked as it is by notions of individualism, the politics of choice, self-responsibilisation, and risk. This will enable us explore the changes that CROs have brought to the interrelated practices and processes of risk reduction, prevention and health care in Sweden.

    Changing equal opportunities in transition?: gender and equal opportunities in Kiruna, Sweden2008Inngår i: Dilemmas for Human Services 2008: 12th International Research Conference, University of East London , 2008Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper considers the effects on the local labour market, for both women and men, of the relocation of Kiruna, a large town in the north of Sweden. Whilst the area of Kiruna has been dominated by mining activity for many years this has now become the source of both problems and opportunities for those in the labour market, if not the whole community, as they ready themselves for the relocation of their town - presently situated above a number of deep mine shafts - to a safer area. Mining, transport and engineering industries flourish in Kiruna, with the current labour market and the relocation of the town expected to generate growth and a regional expansion. But the labour market for mining has been dominated traditionally by men, with women found predominantly in the public sector. A question that rises is how much will change, and who might be winners and losers, when the town relocates? Equal opportunities in labour markets have long been a part of political and philosophical debates in a number of European countries, not least Sweden where achievements of political gender equality debates have earned it an international reputation as a world leader in gender equality (Regeringskansliet, 2007). Indeed, in Sweden equal opportunities in respect of gender have been promoted as a part of the school curriculum since 1970 (SCB, 2006; Regeringskansliet, 2007). Subsequent to this and other achievements during the 1970's, social democratic politicians and other campaigners have striven to keep equal opportunities at the forefront of social awareness. This remained the case throughout the 1980's and 1990's, and into the new millennium (SCB, 2006). In 2004, for example, strategies for the integration of gender equality in Government Offices in Sweden were implemented, followed by "new" gender equality policies, that also focused on equal opportunities, in 2006 (SCB, 2006). However, in 2007 a "new" liberal approach to gender equality emerged, its significance albeit somewhat unclear. It is this on which the study focuses: changes to gender equity and labour markets in Kiruna. In order to do this we draw on early results from an empirical investigation involving a subset of data comprising 1,732 questionnaires sent to men and women respondents in the Kiruna local authority area. Although limited, the evidence suggests that the current gender discourse in Kiruna, at least amongst those that participated in the empirical research, is that the attitudes of women and men in respect of gender are decidedly similar. The indication from the data is that work is prioritised over the family and home. Yet while securing an income is widely agreed to be a joint responsibility, the evidence also suggests that the expectation that women will contribute jointly is lower. Moreover, whilst a majority of the participants agree that responsibility for taking care of the home and family is mutual, there is nonetheless a desire for men to increase their contribution. Even so, this does not mean that the men are expected to reduce the amount of paid work they do. These somewhat contradictory findings might be expected - people after all may well say one thing and then do another - but the findings do indicate that ideas of gender equity are in the minds of our respondents, even if they appear to co-exist in ways that are perhaps far from complementary, suggesting the need for an exploration that sets their responses in context as they shift between discourses of gender equity and the experience of inequity in their daily lives.This is important because it has been shown that imbalanced gender distribution has and continues to exist in the labour market in Sweden. This is despite apparent opportunities, choices and legal rights, with many men and women in Sweden ‘choosing' gender-segregated occupations and professions, raising questions about the degree of freedom in such choices even in a gender-friendly country that prides itself on equality of opportunity. Yet this appears to have predated the self-interest and competitiveness promoted by the "new" liberal equality-integration policies of the present neo-liberal coalition government concerning the freedom to choose between occupation, profession and parenthood. But what effect is this now having? In what ways have form(s) of gender discrimination persisted and are there new varieties, linked to neo-liberalism (Harvey 2005) at play? The current gender discourse allows women and men to make apparently free choices, with the prioritising of paid work over the home and family by both women and men indicating that parenthood is the least attractive option presently on offer. Indeed, the evidence suggests that denying oneself parental responsibilities - or maybe at least deferring - is becoming the norm. In order to do this parents are mutually dependent on one another and, in most cases, municipal day-care facilities provided through the offices of the local authorities. However, the present government is scrutinising the costs of this provision closely. It is issues such as these that the paper explores through a consideration of approaches to equal opportunity - a concept that is itself liberal in its promotion of equal opportunities to be unequal, in contrast to affirmative action and quotas - in changing contexts in Sweden as they impact on our case study of Kiruna

    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to focus on the attitudes of women and men in relation to gender-appropriate domestic responsibilities and equal opportunities in the changing context of neo-liberalism. Design/methodology/approach – The authors draw on results from an empirical investigation involving 1,731 questionnaires investigating the attitudes of women and men in a town in the north of Sweden. Findings – The tentative conclusions suggest that even if they appear to co-exist in contradictory ways, ideas of gender-appropriate domestic responsibilities and equality of opportunity are in the respondents' minds, alongside neo-liberal notions of individualisation. The prevailing attitudes in respect of gender suggest that women and men make apparently free “choices”; the influence of age on attitudes to gender issues is also considered. Originality/value – This paper considers neo-liberalisation and its impact on gender equity in Sweden, a country with a strong reputation for gender equity and a tradition of collective, inclusive social democracy, somewhere we would be unlikely to find its embedded presence. Using a quantitative self-reporting approach to attitudes relevant to the choices made by men and women, the study raises questions about gender-appropriate domestic responsibilities and equality of opportunity in a country that has been and continues to be regarded as one of the most gender-friendly in the world and likely to be resistant to the influence of neo-liberalism. The implications are explored, with the evidence indicating the presence of neo-liberalism co-existing, albeit perhaps uneasily, with traditions of equality of opportunity and attitudes to gender.

    Exploring intersectionality in context: gender, ethnicity and class2009Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Intersectionality has become an object of considerable interest as an analytical tool for feminist and ethnicity scholars who use it to theorize identity and oppression (or inclusion - and exclusion processes).  Yet intersectionality, as an analytical tool, has become criticised for its lack of clear definition or defined methodology, the difficulty of operationalisation, the use of black/Asian women as typical intersectional subjects and its doubtful empirical validity. Furthermore, gender and ‘race'/ethnicity, as well as the concept of social class, are all problematic concepts and any theorising or empirical work making use of them faces the difficulty of their meaning potentially shifting in different social contexts. For theorists of gender and class politics one or other of these dimensions of inequality has tended to be taken as primary, depending on the starting point of the theorist. If writing in the tradition of labour process theory, for example, social class has been taken as the framework within which gender is considered, even if there are different schools at work within the labour process approach. The same applies for theorists of gender who tend to analyse social class from one of a number of feminist perspectives. Intersectionality, on the other hand, suggests that speaking of gender apart form social class, as well as race/ethnicity and other such ‘divisions', distorts analysis. This is because there is no such thing as gender which stands apart from other dimensions such as ethnicity and social class, just as there is no such thing as ‘race' devoid of gender and social class, and no such thing as class apart from gender and ‘race'. Seen from this perspective, ignoring the intersectional nature of these seemingly different levels of analysis suggests that we systematically overlook aspects of experience. The notion of intersectionality grew out of recognition that social structures intersect to shape social positions. This assumes that social positions and corresponding social groups are created and delineated by social structures such as norms, laws, institutions and traditions that intersect. Intersectionality has been very important in pointing out the limitations of existing theoretical approaches to gender analysis, and in explaining the political benefits of organizing intersectionally marginalized groups. Intersectionality has also been helpful in showing how thinking in terms of gender analyses that seek simply to add on dimensions such as social class and race/ethnicity are incomplete and obscure the experiences of women at the intersection of these social relations. Yet intersectionality can, it seems, to lead to an infinite regress, a non-ending process of splitting social relations until one is left with nought but individuals.  The empirical focus of this article is a group of nurses from Finland who migrated to Sweden to secure employment in their chosen occupation. With the exception of one man, the nurses were all women. The paper explores the utility of an intersectional analysis in examining the interplay of gender, ethnicity and class in order to understand the experience of these people as it unfolded in context, or location.(493 words)Indicative bibliographyAcker, J.

    Changes and New Directions in Human Services: Selected conference proceedings of the 14th international Research Conference held at Luleå University of Technology, Human Work Science, October 20112011Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Preface This Conference, organised jointly by Staffordshire University, the University of East London and the University of Luleå, have so far provided a forum for policy, organisational and multidisciplinary critical analyses of the dilemmas facing the organisation and delivery of health, housing, education, social services and the human services generally. The theme of the conference 2010 was Changes and new directions in Human services. Change has been a leitmotif of the Human Services and the Public sector more generally in recent years; and whilst it is an aspect of all organizational, social political and economic life, it has been especially rapid and far reaching in the human services, exuberated by the turbulence and fall-out from the present to initiate further change in new directions. We accordingly invited papers that examine the responses of public, private and voluntary sector organisations and governments in tackling the contemporary problems facing human services related to the changes and new directions in service delivery and organisational effectiveness (locally, regionally and globally), as well as ethical and gender issues concerning access to labour market, equity and quality of service. This years Dilemmas Conference presents a selection of short papers from the conference. The articles highlight the changes and potential directions of society where wealth is undergoing a shift towards more explicitly neo-liberal society, where the private market takes over part of what has previously been state and local government responsibility which has consequences for people who are in need of social services. These changes affect the welfare state actors in organizations such as education, social work and also affect the employability of the general, and over time these changes can have significant consequences for welfare and social rights. Three of these articles, “The Financial Meltdown and the Crisis of Reproduction: Imaginations of Performance, Participation and Social Justice” by Brigitte Aulenbacher and Birgit Riegraf, Vision: A Source of Innovation, Illusion or Social Control? by Kazem Chaharbaghi and Support and service for persons with intellectual disabilities: A study of changes and consequences in Finland and Sweden 1990 – 2010 Barbro Blomberg, Lena Widerlund, Anne-Marie Lindqvist have been published in a special issue in a Swedish journal called Socialvetenskaplig Tidskrift 2010 3-4, Vol 1. These articles have been published in Swedish in longer versions except for Kazem Chaharbaghis’ article which are the same article however in English in this Dilemmas proceedings.

    Dilemmas of identity, new public management and governance: selected papers from the 11th international research conference, hosted by Luleå University of Technology, Department of human work science, Friday 31th August-Saturday 1st September 20072008Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This Conference is organized jointly with Staffordshire University and the University of East London, and provides a forum for policy, organizational and critical sociological analyses of the human services including health, social services, housing, education and the voluntary sector. Although the theme of this year's conference concerned governance and new public management and its relationship to identities in the public and voluntary sectors, many of the papers focus on identities from different perspectives rather than having their focus on governance or new public management. It might be argued that governance and new public management have become a part of everyday life in these sectors, but the processes of change engendered raise important questions around issues of identities within human services, not least the degree to which they reflect, or conversely impact on, the discourses at work. As in the past, the aim is to provide a forum for both new and established researchers to share ideas in a supportive and scholarly environment. A wide range of contributions are encouraged, including country-specific and cross-cultural research.

    Regionala samarbetsprojekt i Norrbottens län: socialtjänsten, psykiatrin och primärvården2008Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna forsknings - och utvecklingsrapport redovisar fem projekt, där syftet har varit att förbättra samarbetet mellan personal från landstingets psykiatriska verksamhet, primärvården och kommunens socialförvaltning. Dessa regionala "Miltonprojekt" startade hösten 2005 i regi av Kommunförbundet Norrbotten och Norrbottens läns landsting. De fem projektgrupperna har varit verksamma i kommunerna Jokkmokk, Gällivare, Kiruna, Pajala, Överkalix, Övertorneå, Haparanda, Kalix, Arjeplog, Arvidsjaur, Piteå, Boden och Luleå i Norrbotten. Projektarbetet har pågått mellan åren 2005 - 2007. Syftet har varit att utveckla nya metoder och rutiner för samarbete över myndighetsgränserna för att därmed förbättra service och vård för psykiskt funktionshindrade. Det övergripande målet med dessa projekt är att förbättra samverkansrutiner, skapa en samsyn som i sin tur ska underlätta arbetet mellan personal från olika organisationer. Men syftet är också att genom utbildning, information samt etablera nätverk få en ökad kompetens om personer med psykiska funktionshinder.
