    An Analysis of the Paris Agreement: A study of the Agreement in the light of the theory of the eight design principles by Elinor Ostrom2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is a qualitative text analysis with a purpose of evaluating strengths and weaknesses of the Paris Agreement in the light of the eight design principles of Elinor Ostrom's theory on how to govern the common resources. The eight design principles are; clearly defined boundaries, congruence between appropriation and provision rules and local conditions, collective-choice arrangements, monitoring, graduated sanctions, conflict-resolution mechanisms, minimal recognition of rights to organize, nested enterprises. These principles then lay the ground for the chosen methodological framework. Processes of categorization and coding the Agreement into categories based upon the eight principles then allows for an understanding of strengths and weaknesses shown in the Agreement, in relation to the theory. The result is then also discussed in relation to further considerations that might be important factors to take into account when understanding the Paris Agreement. The paper is based around the document on the Paris Agreement as well as the book by Ostrom named Governing the Commons “The Evolution of Institutions for CollectiveAction”. Further documents and articles are presented throughout the paper, especially in the analysis and discussion to provide for a wider picture on the subject and to avoid an all-biased paper.

    Att tala om Leviathan: Yttrandefrihet i konflikt med statens behov av skydd – En fallstudie av åtalet mot Bradley E. Manning2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is a case study on Bradley E. Manning, famous for leaking classified intelligence to media, or in the charge sheet’s words: “knowingly give intelligence to the enemy, through indirect means.” My opinion is that this sort of dilemma is a question of values, how you view the world and, most important of all, human rights and the philosophy of rights. Therefore I decided to sort out the arguments regarding the issue of freedom of speech versus the state’s need for protection. To do this I performed a pro et contra analysis from John Stuart Mill’s On Liberty and Thomas Hobbes’ Leviathan, this building my theory on which I lean my other work upon. Furthermore, I performed a case study on Manning where I compared the charges and the defense with the arguments of Mill and Hobbes.

    Ergo: I applied my theory on an existing conflict between freedom of speech and the state’s need for protection to see which arguments that are used in the charge against Manning and if one could derive this from the argumentation analysis consistent of Mill and Hobbes.

    Omhändertagandet av ensamkommande barn i Jönköping2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Det här är en kvalitativ intervjustudie som använt sig av strukturerade intervjuer med inslag av semistruktur. Intervjuer har gjorts på sju respondenter på tre olika HVB-hem(hem för vård och boende) i Jönköping kommun där en sektionschef, tre heltidsanställd och tre timanställda har deltagit. 

    Syftet med studien är att få en förståelse kring hur personal på HVB-hem ser på omhändertagandet av ensamkommande barn samt hur arbetssituationen ser ut för personalen. Frågeställningar som har svarats på är “Hur ser omhändertagandet ut av ensamkommande barn på HVB-hem i Jönköping kommun?”, “Hur ser arbetssituationen ut för personalen med fokus på mötet med ensamkommande barn?” och “Vad finns det för centrala problem och utmaningar i omhändertagandet av ensamkommande barn på HVB-hem i Jönköping kommun?”

    Forskningsläget just nu visar att samarbetet bland personal på HVB-hem är bristande och barnen får inte den hjälp de behöver trots att de är i en utsatt situation. Studiens resultat bekräftar en del av den tidigare forskningens problemområden och tar upp ytterligare problematik med att det finns för många barn under samma tak och att HVB-hemmen misslyckas med att leva upp till lagarna om att barnen har rätt till ett eget rum. Problematiken ligger i huvudsak att det inte finns tillräckligt med lokaler, och i att personalen inte har tid att prioritera barnen före andra arbetsuppgifter, vilket medför en frustration bland både barn och anställda.

    The news framing of the ‘Syria Fighters’in Sweden: A frame analysis of Swedish Newspapers2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines the framing of Syria fighters in Swedish newspapers during selected time periods of 2016 and 2017. Syria Fighters refer to individuals who travel to Syria to join the ongoing conflict, an occurrence commonly known as Foreign Fighters. Using framing analysis and framing theory the study finds that Syria fighters and their actions are framed mainly as problematic and as a negative social phenomenon. The study also makes a comparison to similar, previous research of Dutch and Flemish newspapers and finds clear similarities as well as differences.

    What factors affect economic growth in China?2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of this thesis is to find out what factors have been the main sources of economic growth in China in 2003 and 2010. It also aims to find out whether the Solow model can be used to explain growth in China, if factors of growth are the same in rich and poor regions, whether the factors are the same in 2003 and 2010 and if the results are in line with previous research.

    The theoretical framework is the Solow model. Empirical tests are performed using econometrics, and therefore this thesis has a quantitative approach. Factors used are growth in GDP per capita which is tested against investments, household savings, the level of GDP per capita, population growth, healthcare and education.

    The results show that the Solow model can explain economic growth in China. Investments, the level of GDP per capita and population growth are the factors most significant to growth. In poor regions, both investments and population growth are more significant than in rich regions, whereas healthcare is more significant in rich regions. Investments and population growth also have a smaller impact in 2010 than 2003. Healthcare is more significant in 2010 and than 2003, and education is only significant in 2010. Previous research shows a wide range of results, and the results of investments and population growth are consistent with those.

    Demografianpassad infrastruktur?: Om hantering av anläggnings-tillgångar i kommuner med minskande befolkningsunderlag2016Inngår i: Nordisk Administrativt Tidsskrift, ISSN 0029-1285, Vol. 93, nr 3, s. 45-64Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [sv]

    Vi har i en rad studier undersökt huruvida effekter och policyimplikationer av långvarig befolkningsminskning beskrivs i kommunala styrdokument. Denna artikel bygger på en delstudie vars övergripande syfte varit att öka förståelsen för hur man i krympande kommuner hanterar och planerar för sina anläggningstillgångar. Vi har här intresserat oss specifikt för huruvida kommunerna i budget och årsredovisningar beskriver sina anläggningstillgångar avseende status och underhåll. Vi har också intresserat oss för i vilken mån kommunerna i dessa dokument drar slutsatser om vilka konsekvenser en förändrad demografi har för hur kommunerna ska planera för sina anläggningstillgångar. Syftet med vår art ikel är därmed att diskutera i vilken mån kommunernas budgetar och årsredovisningar är sammanhang där kommunerna beskriver sina anläggningstillgångar avseende status och underhåll, och huruvida kommunerna här beskriver strategier för hur anläggningstillgångarna ska kunna anpassas till en ny demografisk situation. Strategier kan finnas i andra dokument, men budget och årsredovisningar är för kommunerna tvingande dokument som underställs kommunfullmäktige varje år. I dessa dokument ska kommunerna inför medborgarna redogöra på vilket sätt de svarar upp mot kraven på god ekonomisk hushållning. Anläggningstillgångarnas status, underhåll och demografianpassning har dessutom uppenbara ekonomiska implikationer, vilket gör att budget och årsredovisning torde vara de styrdokument där kommunen i första hand beskriver dessa förhållanden.

    Vår ambition har varit att undersöka kommuner som har ett minskande befolkningsunderlag, men som i övrigt har varierande förutsättningar och karaktär. Studien baseras därför på ett systematiskt urval av kommuner, där urvalet baserades på geo-grafiskt läge, närhet till större tätort samt befolkningsstorlek.

    New demography, old infrastructure: the management of fixed assets in shrinking municipalities in Sweden2018Inngår i: Dealing with Urban and Rural Shrinkage: Formal and Informal Strategies / [ed] Gert-Jan Hospers and Josefina Syssner, Zürich: LIT Verlag GmBH and Co. KG Wien , 2018, s. 31-44Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

     large minority of municipalities, especially in the rural parts of the vast Scandinavian country, face declining population numbers. Studies show that demographic decline has brought about severe challenges to these municipalities. Jonsson and Syssner argue that most of Swedish communities do not account for declining population numbers in the management of their fixed assets, like the maintenance of public buildings, water supply networks and sewage pipes. Jonsson and Syssner also shows that adaptation strategies for real estate are much more common than adaptation strategies for other types of assets. This is a worrying situation for shrinking rural areas, since this lack of adjustment ultimately may result in growing welfare differences in Sweden.

    Clashing internationalisms: east European narratives of west European integration2016Inngår i: Europe faces Europe: narratives from its eastern half / [ed] Johan Fornäs, Bristol: Intellect Ltd., 2016Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter analyzes how West European integration was viewed in communist Eastern Europe at the time of the foundation of the EU. Throughout the period from the Schuman declaration and the creation of the European Coal and Steel Community in 1951 to the Treaty of Rome and the establishment of the European Economic Community in 1957, Moscow, Berlin, Prague, Budapest, and Warsaw reacted, in part by criticizing the West European integration project as a continuation of Europe’s imperial and capitalist past, in part by projecting ideas for a wholly different European and global integration project. While this debate was patterned on the cold war logic and the clash between capitalist and communist ideologies, it also contained a profound – and lasting – dispute regarding Europe’s geopolitical position and role, especially in relation to its African colonies. After the fall of the communist East, this dispute was apparently settled to the West’s favor, and it was then forgotten. Yet, varieties of the same dispute today reappear as the EU seeks to develop a foreign policy and global mission for the twenty-first century. By using sources mainly from the Soviet Union and the German Democratic Republic that have so far been largely neglected in scholarship, the chapter evinces a East-European narrative about Europe’s calling and destiny that merits particular attention in today’s emerging pluricentric world order.

    A Statue to Nasser?: Eurafrica, the Colonial Roots of European Integration, and the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize2013Inngår i: Mediterranean Quarterly, ISSN 1047-4552, E-ISSN 1527-1935, Vol. 24, nr 4, s. 5-18Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In response to a widespread idea of the European Union as a “peace project,” an idea disseminated especially after the EU received the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize, this essay retrieves some of the historical causes of the foundation of the European Economic Community (EEC) in 1957. The essay emphasizes specific geopolitical and colonial incentives that had lain behind the European integration project ever since the pan-European blueprints the interwar period and which became critical with the Suez crisis and decolonization movements of the 1950s. As the essay demonstrates, practically all of the visions, movements, and concrete institutional arrangements working toward European integration during this period placed Africa’s incorporation into the European enterprise as a central objective. As much of the scholarly, political, and journalistic accounts at the time testify, European integration was inextricably bound up with a Eurafrican project. According to the intellectual, political, and institutional discourse on Eurafrica, a future European community presupposed the transformation of the strictly national colonial projects into a joint European colonization of Africa. Strong evidence suggests that these ideas were instrumental in the actual diplomatic and political constitution of the EEC, or of Europe as a political subject, in 1957. The essay discusses why the EU’s colonial origins have been consigned to oblivion in mainstream research and why this history is of continued concern to the world.

    Hur bemöts Kina i Afrika?: En mångdimensionell idealtypsanalys av Sydafrikas, Zambias och Zimbabwes bemötande av Kinas ökande ekonomiska intresse2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The outset of this study is to contribute to the literature concerning China’s increasing economic interest to engage in the African context, its economies and resource abundandce. The overarching research problem is that the approaches held by the respective African state entities may facilitate increasing development gains for the recipient state of this economic interest in principle. To adress this research problem the study is undertaken by conducting a comparative case study where three cases/states, with presumably diverging economic and political status, are likely to effect their overall state approaches differently.

    Research questions, which are addressed by the creation of an idealtype analytic matrix, concern whether the states of South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe take on a more ‘permissive’ or ‘restrictive’ approach towards China’s economic interst and whether the approaches can be looked upon on both aggratege and case/area-specific levels.

    The main findings are that a clear tendency of the ‘permissive approach’ may be noted on a aggregate level for all cases. Further, the cases’ economic and poltical status does not necessarily effect this aggregate tendency but but rather the dynamics in case-specific areas deemed relevant in this analysis. The desire to grasp the interest seems greater than internal dynamics.

    Kina i Afrika: Bistånd eller ekonomiskt samarbete?: En jakt på förklaringar av Kinas ökande närvaro i den Afrikanska kontexten2013Student paper second term, 5 poäng / 7,5 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Det råder en intensiv debatt vad de alltmer tilltagande utvecklingspartnerskapen mellan Kina och afrikanska stater är ett utryck för och kan förklaras. Syftet är att nå närmare en rimlig förklaring. Frågeställningarna är huruvida det är bistånd eller utvecklingssamarbete i ekonomiska termer som kan observeras. Och hur kan man på basis av relevanta antaganden hos Ekonomisk Nationalism samt Marxism/beroendeteori förklara den kinesiska verksamheten utifrån dess orsaker, form samt konsekvenser. Metoden för denna forskningsuppgift har varit att utifrån tidigare forskning som källor samt de teoretiska antagandena finna relevanta indikatorer i linje med syftet.

    Slutsatserna är att det primärt är statens (Kinas) eller eliters intressens som styr. För säkra sin egen utveckling bedriver Kina en resurs- och marknadsorienterad approach. Men det kan också vara den ekonomiska och politiska eliten – i Kina samt i Afrika -som strävar efter bibehållandet av maktpositioner och en ökad ackumulation av kapital. De kinesiska instrumenten/medlen tar villkorande former som faciliterar fortsatt kinesiska intressenters närvaro; genom frånvaron av politiska men närvaron av ekonomiska konditionaliteter. Detta tenderar att reproducera exploaterande och utnyttjande strukturer/beroendeförhållanden. Man bör vara kritiskt mot det kinesiska engagemanget men detta är inte möjligt utifrån premissen om att de Sino-Afrikanska samarbetena är av traditionell biståndskaraktär.

    UTANFÖRSKAP I ETT MAJORITETSSAMHÄLLE: En diskursanalytisk studie med fokus på romerna i svenska tidningar2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper I study how the minority group Roma appears in the Swedish media. I also look at possible similarities and differences in appearance before and after the disclosure of the Roma registration by the Swedish police in September 2013. To answer my purpose with the paper I treat the following questions:

    • How is the minority group Roma constructed in the media before and after the disclosure?
    • In which ways are the minority group Roma expressed in the media before and after the disclosure?

    I am using a discourse analytic method based on theories of construction between “them” and “we” and the media’s impact on social constructions and identities. By analysing twenty-eight articles from a period of one month before and one month after the disclosure the result shows that there are more similarities than differences between how the Roma are described in the Swedish media. The conclusion is that there are small differences and bigger similarities in how the Roma are constructed between the two periods, but that the attitude against how they are expressed is more sympathetic after the disclosure.

    "If I was able to acquire that piece of land, is there something I can't do?": assessing effects of the Women Economic Empowerment Program on the psychological empowerment of HIV positive women in Ngong, Kenya2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to find out whether the Women Economic Empowerment Program (WEEP) targeted at HIV positive women in Ngong, Kenya, empowers its participants psychologically. The research data consists of ten interviews conducted in 2015 in Ngong with women who were recently enrolled in the 18-month program and women who had recently graduated from the program. The field work also included systematic observation. A qualitative content analysis was performed on the interview material, and the impact of the program on the participants’ psychological empowerment was analyzed in terms of the interviewees’ feelings of self-confidence/beliefs in self-efficacy, self-respect, and acceptance. The results show that the newly-graduated participants demonstrate higher levels of self-confidence and stronger beliefs in self-efficacy than the newly-enrolled, framing their own hard work as the most important factor affecting whether they will accomplish their goals in life. The newly-graduated also experience higher levels of self-respect. The newly-graduated experience higher levels of acceptance than the newly-enrolled women when dealing with stigmatizing relationships. Based on these findings, the WEEP program is argued to empower its participants psychologically. Inspirational leadership, capacity building activities, experience of goal success, and the program as a space for emotional peer support were identified as some of the factors and processes behind the result. The results can, with consideration, be generalized to contexts with similar target groups and organizational goals and settings.

    This master’s thesis examines the role of EU conditionality and the way it influences the government of Kosovo and Serbia to implement the agreements of the dialogue and to make dialogue more efficient. This thesis aims at explaining why it is difficult for the countries to engage in the dialogue without the facilitation of EU and its conditionality. By analysing the external factors and the role of EU conditionality, as well as the domestic factors in Kosovo and Serbia, this thesis provides conditionality—studies with an original in—depth investigation of the topic.

    The capacity of the European Union to impact the potential candidates to make the required reforms and establish domestic institutions and policy that are both strong and stable enough for membership is fundamental to a fruitful enlargement program. The low political will to engage in the dialogue among both countries caused the EU to use its conditionality towards the dialogue which is also the main instrument at the EU disposal to urge and guarantee compliance.

    The thesis uses elements from conditionality theory. This allows for an in-depth analysis of the methods that EU used to bring the countries to the table of negotiations; the way it exerts influence and its foreign policy towards the countries. A detailed process tracing has been completed which consisted of examining official documents by both countries and by the EU. Three interviews have been conducted with in order to obtain final remarks and answers on the research question. It is important to emphasize that the all the interviewees are only based in Kosovo, however this does not mean that there is any biased information since the progress reports by both countries were analysed. The findings of the thesis suggest that even though EU conditionality has been the main incentive for pushing the countries engage in the dialogue it has not been consistent or strong enough as to have an impact on the parties to implement the agreements. The findings also indicate that internal factors and interests play an important role on the absence of implementation and commitment to create an efficient dialogue which would result in normalization of relations between two countries.

    Commodification of Otherness: A qualitative postcolonial analysis of representation in French contemporary cinema2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis investigates how colonial legacies shape representational practices in contemporary French cinema and interrogates how hierarchical differences are produced and challenged in the cinematic media. Combining the fields of postcolonial theory and culture studies enables a theoretical framework that connects contemporary cultural debates about the politics of representation with the legacies of colonial stereotypes and racialized imageries. Through the application of qualitative content analysis and critical discourse analysis the thesis strives to make a theoretical contribution to the existing body of litterateur that is empirically driven. Additionally an intersectional dimension will be included as the thesis addresses the question of representations in relation to race, gender, class and sexuality and further how power operates through culture as a production of knowledge. The major findings of the thesis consist of how the empirical material reveals how contemporary cinematic expressions reuse colonial racial stereotypes and appropriate blackness as instrumental in commodification of “otherness”. Accordingly the thesis challenges dominant notions of the impact of race in a French context.

     

    KEYWORDS: Colonial discourse, representation, cinema, intersectional, appropriation, commodification, otherness.

    Après Paris: Breakthrough innovation as the primary moral obligation of rich countries2016Inngår i: Environmental Science and Policy, ISSN 1462-9011, E-ISSN 1873-6416, Vol. 63, s. 170-176Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    While the notion of differentiated responsibility has always included an element of technological transfer, the growing disparity between the deployment of non-scalable renewable energy sources in the rich countries and the massive expansion of fossil infrastructure elsewhere has brought new urgency to issues of climate leadership. Breakthrough innovation into technologies capable of providing an abundance of clean energy now appears necessary not only to broaden energy access but also to ensure that fossil fuels are quickly displaced globally (including in those countries that have failed to take climate change seriously). Moreover, it is reasonable to expect that a climatechanged world in itself will demand abundant energy to facilitate everything from carbon dioxide removal to mass desalination for agriculture and other adaptation measures. Considering the moral and political impossibility of treating sustained poverty as the “solution” to the climate crisis, this paper suggests that rich countries have a moral obligation to invest in breakthrough innovation into technologies that are compatible with a future global economic convergence around OECD-levels.

    The environmental risks of incomplete globalization2017Inngår i: Globalizations, ISSN 1474-7731, E-ISSN 1474-774X, Vol. 14, nr 4, s. 550-562Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    As the liberal optimism of the long 1990s has faded into a world of growing inequality and resurging nationalism, there is less certainty about the prospects of economic convergence and global integration. Beyond the formidable human cost of maintaining a divided world, the possibility of incomplete globalisation also gives rise to a number of environmental risks. While environmental political theory generally sees strength in localism, history rather shows that a robust world trade system is crucial to offset local resource scarcities and that cosmopolitan norms of solidarity are essential for helping communities to rebuild after environmental catastrophe. In relation to climate change, statist thinking has led to a focus on non-scalable technologies and a silent acceptance of chronic poverty abroad as a way of avoiding a climate emergency. Contrary to such views, this paper argues that accelerating the transition to a fully integrated high-energy planet may more effectively mitigate Anthropocene risks.

    COP21 - en milstolpe för världen?: En statsvetenskaplig framinganalys av klimatavtalet i Paris.2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    After many years of climate negotiations, a universally binding agreement has become the main objective for many scientists and politicians in the field of international climate negotiations. The highly anticipated climate conference in Paris 2015 has been portrayed as a success by politicians, newspapers and international organisations worldwide. It seems reasonable to assume that the binding part of the agreement is one of the reasons to its perceived significance given the fact that a binding agreement, historically, has been difficult to achieve. Although the agreement has been celebrated and praised by several influential organisations such as the UN, this perspective has not been uncontradicted. Organisations such as Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth challenge the assumption that this is a milestone for humanity. This thesis seeks to explore this disagreement with a framing analysis. It is possible to identify two separate frames combatting for their beliefs to become perceived as the truth. The ”Successframe” is illustrated by the Swedish government. The successframe is challenged by the environmental organisations in what can be referred to as a counterframe, in this essay the counterframe is called the ”failureframe”. This thesis uses a theoretical framework inspired by Benford and Snow (2000), to explore why the successframe has become the dominating frame in the public discourse when discussing the Paris agreement.

    Legal Modernities: conceptual transformations around the management of human mobility in international relations2013Inngår i: Foreigners, refugees, or minorities?: rethinking people in the context of border controls and visas / [ed] Didier Bigo, Sergio Carrera, Elspeth Guild, Burlington, VT: Ashgate, 2013, 1, s. 75-88Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The discussion about the situation of the Roma in Europe and their exceptional legal standing when it comes to the right to movement is a telling example of both the legalization of politics and politicization of law within the EU. This text seeks to contribute to the project to re-frame our understanding of international law[1]by looking at how a drive to order coupled with a particular idea of the location of sovereign power that is dependent on particular historicist assumptions and a constantly re-produced separation between different levels of analysis (especially national and international) pervasive within the discipline of international law often enough make such a re-conceptualization impossible despite the best of intentions. It is by tracing this type of human rights discourse internal to international law that we can start to produce constructive criticism of the structures and processes of international law.

    [1]In 2002, for example, Richard Falk, Lester Edwin J. Ruiz and R. B. J. Walker (on behalf of the journal Transnational Law and Contemporary Problems) gathered some of the field’s most prominent scholars in order to engage the question of what it might mean to re-frame international law for the 21st century. Accepting its role as a millennial product and at the same time finding the temporal and spatial structures upon which the question as such was framed, the collection explicitly began by asking what was at stake in ‘framing’ anything in terms of ‘re-framing’. In so doing, the authors located a current disciplinary sensitivity in “a loss of confidence in the adequacy of the world” which is reflected both in doubts about the possibility of interpreting the world and also in the actual normative structures of the world. According to the authors, the effect of lost confidence could be seen in how the academic interpreters of international law “tack uneasily between a conventional wisdom about a world of sovereign jurisdictions coexisting in an increasingly responsible and cooperative system and a sense of profound disorientation.” Falk, Ruiz, Walker, p. 4. – 5.

    Reconsidering Participation: A Critical Review of Integrated Approaches in the Management of Water Resources and Contaminated Drinking Water2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Participation is often seen as fundamental in development studies and for development projects. There are also critical ideas claiming that there are power relations which should be taken into account before embracing participation as good in itself. From the basis of the critical ideas found in the book Participation: The New Tyranny? this paper examines the cases of ‘Integrated Water Resources Management’ and ‘Integrated Approach for Mitigation of Arsenic Contamination of Drinking Water in Bangladesh’ in order to determine whether the critical ideas in the book are applicable when analysing texts about these cases. After determining that there are indications of power imbalances between the facilitators and the local population in the two cases, this paper finally argues that the critical ideas are applicable and that there is a need for more and broader discussions and dialogues between various actors involved in development projects. Also mentioned in this paper is the importance of raising awareness of power relations and incorporating different views when planning and implementing development projects.

    Climate Change Mitigation and Political Legitimacy in Post-Conflict Settings2014Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Climate change and climate variability exacerbate the human costs of war. Most research has focused on the negative societal consequences of climate change, and more recently also the negative impact of climate change mitigation and adaptation. The possible positive impacts of climate change adaptation and mitigation has left a lacuna in research on the social impacts of climate change. In this study I investigate the link between climate change mitigation and building peace: Does climate change mitigation – in this case micro hydropower systems in Nepal – contribute to building peace – measured as the perceived legitimacy of the post-conflict order? Energy supply through micro hydropower systems is crucial for climate mitigation and has become a crucial area for peacebuilding. After 2006, Nepal achieved successful micro hydropower development following a decade long civil war. Two individual cases within Nepal were selected to assess the effects of micro hydropower systems on peacebuilding. The findings are based on newly collected empirical data. National expert, local elite and household interviews were conducted in 2013 in Nepal. The data indicates that there is no direct effect (neither positive nor negative) of climate mitigation on peacebuilding. However, the successful implementation of the micro hydropower project in the two cases in Nepal has actually produced other spaces of legitimate authority and as such constitutes an internal hybrid peace in Nepal in the absence of functioning nation state.

    Climate Change Mitigation, Peacebuilding, and Resilience2014Inngår i: Carnegie Ethics OnlineArtikkel i tidsskrift (Annet (populærvitenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [en]

    How are our efforts to reduce the impact of climate change affecting post-conflict societies? Thinking and research about the possible impacts of climate change adaptation and mitigation on post-conflict societies is almost nonexistent. Most attention remains on climate change and variability and their link to war.1 In this article I discuss the link between climate change mitigation and building peace. Drawing on new empirical data of micro hydropower development in post-conflict Nepal I inquire further if climate change mitigation contributes to peacebuilding.

    The findings show that micro-hydropower development in Nepal has not contributed to peacebuilding on a state level. This is because these measures do not strengthen the political legitimacy of the post-conflict authorities, a crucial measure for successful peacebuilding. Actually, in the short run this measure of climate change mitigation has led to new informal spaces of peace beyond the reach of the Nepali state. This puts policy decision makers into a dilemma: Should they consider abandoning climate change mitigation policies if they might in fact risk the peacebuilding process? Or is it worth the bigger cause of reducing CO2 emissions globally? As this article shows, the answer might be more nuanced.

    Empowering peace: service provision and state legitimacy in Nepal’s peace-building process2016Inngår i: Conflict, Security and Development, ISSN 1467-8802, E-ISSN 1478-1174, Vol. 16, nr 1, s. 53-73Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    There is growing demand for an understanding of peace beyond the absence of violence. As such research focuses increasingly on the issue of state legitimacy as a tool to assess and understand peace processes. In this paper the relationship between service provision and state legitimacy is studied to assess whether the provision of services like electricity to rural communities of war-torn countries through state actors contributes to the consolidation of the post-war political system. The qualitative analysis of two localities in post-war Nepal highlights that service provision in the form of electricity through micro-hydropower yields tremendously positive socio-economic effects for rural communities. However, socio-economic development in combination with interactions among villagers has strengthened local autonomy through emphasising alternative local governance structures. This highlights that the relationship between service provision and state legitimacy is more complex than previous research anticipates. The absence of a positive effect on state legitimacy raises the question of whether in its current case-specific form service provision is conducive to the broader peace-building efforts in post-war Nepal, because it stresses the divide between state and society.

    Nepal’s Micro-Hydropower Projects Have Surprising Effect on Peace Process2014Inngår i: New Security BeatsArtikkel i tidsskrift (Annet (populærvitenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [en]

    The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s fifth assessment, which has been rolling out in stages since last September, confirms a crucial divide in current climate thinking: efforts to adapt and mitigate to climate change are often considered separately from the vulnerability of people.

    Climate change impacts, adaptation, and vulnerability were covered by IPCC Working Group II, while Working Group III handled mitigation. Each group developed and released their reports separately. Why is this significant? Because in conflict and post-conflict societies, climate mitigation efforts can have significant impacts on existing tensions, sometimes even making them worse. It is therefore vitally important that policymakers understand these two sets of issues together and researchers build a better understanding of how they interact.

    The Environment and Peace - Environmental Policies in Peace Processes and their contribution to Building Peace2013Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Does peacebuilding in the environmental sector influence perceptions of popular legitimacy of post-conflict authorities? Guided by this question this research plan addresses a gap in the literature on peacebuilding and environmental studies. Only limited research has been conducted on the link between the environment and peacebuilding. Generally, scholars and practitioners assume addressing environmental issues during peacebuilding processes contributes to the success of peace (Conca & Dabelko, 2002; Conca & Wallace, 2009; Ejigu, 2006; Kostić, Krampe, & Swain, 2012; Machlis & Hanson, 2008; Matthew, Barnett, & McDonald, 2009a; Matthew, Brown, & Jensen, 2009b; A. Swain & Krampe, 2011). Yet, findings in the peacebuilding literature show that externally driven peacebuilding often leads to a lack of popular legitimacy of governing authorities and the creation of new substructures of legitimacy, a development that has been termed hybrid or post-liberal peace (Kappler, 2012; Kostić, 2007; MacGinty, 2010; Richmond, 2011).

    These adverse effects of peacebuilding have been identified and studied in many sectors, but are they similarly present in the environmental sector? Or do environmental peacebuilding activities contribute in fact to more popular legitimacy? This study contributes knowledge and understanding about peacebuilding in the environmental sector and its influence on local perceptions of legitimacy. The focus is specifically on projects of renewable energy production that utilize manageable natural resources (i.e. water and biomass). If and how these project influence popular legitimacy will be assessed through within and cross case comparisons of four case studies in the peacebuilding process of Nepal through data based on fieldwork.

    Water, Cooperation and Peacebuilding: Exploring (Internal) Transboundary Water Governance In Kosovo After 19992014Inngår i: ISA Annual Convention “Global IR and Regional Worlds - A New Agenda for International Studies” February 18th-21st, 2015, New Orleans, Louisiana., 2014Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Following the Yugoslavian secessionist wars of 1992, the number of transboundary river basins doubled in the region. Kosovo, in particular, poses an intriguing challenge to water governance in the post-war Balkans. In this paper I investigate how the international community governed Kosovo’s water resources after the UN assumed trusteeship of Kosovo in 1999. In particular, this study focuses on Ibar basin, i.e. particularly the Gazivoda reservoir, located on the border of Serbia and northern Kosovo, and also the Iber-Lepenc Canal, which brings water from the Serb-dominated areas in the North to the Albanian-dominated central Kosovo. A dynamic puzzle arises around the governance of water resources in Kosovo’s “no war, no peace” situation. The challenge of water governance exists not only between contested national boundaries, but also between ethnic divisions within Kosovo. Did the handling of water issues through UNMIK contribute to peacebuilding in Kosovo’s sensitive and complex post-conflict context? The study reveals that while there are instances of interstate cooperation appearing, the water issue is much more complicated when considering the internal ethnic divisions on the local level.

    Water for peace?: Post-conflict water resource management in Kosovo2017Inngår i: Cooperation and Conflict, ISSN 0010-8367, E-ISSN 1460-3691, Vol. 52, nr 2, s. 147-165Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Water resource management (WRM) has increasingly come to be considered within the realm of peacebuilding. Through investigating the case of water resource management in Kosovo after 1999, this study argues that the international community has treated post-conflict water resource management as a primarily technical issue, to the neglect of its complex political nature. This has impeded the peacebuilding process in three ways. First, it consolidated the physical separation of actors through allowing separate water governance structures. Second, it avoided conflictive issues instead of actively engaging in conflict resolution. Third, it incapacitated locals by placing ownership in the hands of external actors. To redress this tripartite dilemma, this study stresses the need for research that provides deeper theoretical and empirical understanding of the political mechanisms that connect WRM to post-conflict reconstruction efforts.

    Global Environmental Governance during Peacebuilding - The Case of Kosovo2014Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Kosovo’s energy development could be much further if resources would have been used more efficient and if global environmental governance regimes would have been applied earlier. This paper tries to explain why focus on renewable resources and with that a more sustainable approach to Kosovo’s development was not promoted through peacebuilding actors. We contextualize the question of global environmental governance during peacebuilding by focusing on the challenges to global norms and procedures of environmental protection in Kosovo’s energy policies. Previous research on Kosovo found that external peacebuilding actors favoured short-sighted solutions and focused on imminent security and economic development. A comprehensive, long-term strategy to address environmental factors through diversification of energy sources and utilizing of renewable energy potentials was missing. However, a 2012 assessment found that Kosovo a focus on security and economic development would not be contradicted by the promotion of renewable energy policies in peacebuilding strategies for Kosovo. We show that Kosovo environmental governance in terms of global norms and procedures of environmental protection was unsuccessful during Kosovo’s international-governance/liberal peace administration embodied in the UNMIK. However, following Kosovo’s declaration of independence in 2008 we find that new policies of environmental governance emerge and manifest itself in the strategy that includes renewable resources. Thus, we argue that change in security priorities within Kosovo in the post-independence period created space for influences not only by international private and political actors dealing with energy issues but also for local private actors and civil society lobbying Kosovo government for strategies more in line with GEG and relying more on renewable energy sources.
