Labor market policy and media work in Sweden

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this article is to analyze some recent changes in labor market policy and labor law in order to show how changes in this kind of regulation have had consequences for work in the media industries. Even though a considerable amount of research has been performed on media work during the last decade, it is quite uncommon within critical media studies to relate such research to policy and regulation. The point I want to make with this article is that the increasing precariousness and de-professionalization that are occurring within media work, as documented in previous research, must be understood against a background of policy change and political decisions, rather than only being seen as an effect of economic or technological shifts within the media industry. This article hence contributes to the current knowledge of the relationship between labor market policy and the media industry in Sweden; as such, it more generally contributes to the current knowledge of such a relationship in a Nordic welfare state, with all its specifi cities and differences from other parts of Europe and the world. Nevertheless, the results and discussions in this article are related – and relevant – to more general European tendencies in the area of labor market policy as it relates to the media.

Abstract [hr]

Cilj ovog rada je analizirati neke nedavne promjene u politici tržišta rada i radnog prava kako bi se pokazalo kako su promjene te vrste regulative imale posljedice za rad u medijskim industrijama. Iako je tijekom posljednjeg desetljeća proveden značajni broj istraživanja o medijskom radu, prilično je neuobičajeno u kritičnim medijskim studijama povezati takvo istraživanje s politikom i regulacijom. Ono što želim naglasiti ovim člankom jest da se povećani prekarni rad i deprofesionalizacija koja se događa unutar medijskog rada, kao što je dokumentirano u ranijem istraživanju, moraju razumijevati u skladu s politič- kim promjenama i političkim odlukama, a ne da se na njih gleda samo kao na ekonomske ili tehnološke pomake unutar medijske industrije. Ovaj rad stoga doprinosi trenutnom znanju o odnosima između politike tržišta rada i medijske industrije u Švedskoj te kao takav doprinosi trenutnom znanju o tim odnosima u nordijskoj socijalnoj državi, sa svim svojim posebnostima i razlikama od drugih dijelova Europe i svijeta. Međutim, rezultati i rasprava u ovom članku povezani su i općenito važni za europska nastojanja u području politike tržišta rada, kao i medija.
