Abstract [sv]

Studien undersöker i vilken mån det förekommer kontakter mellan grupper som är olika varandra eller inte inom civilsamhällets organisationer och nätverk och om kontakterna samvarierar med lägre fördomar och högre tillit till grupper som är annorlunda en själv. Studien är baserad på en surveyundersökning som är genomförd till ett urval av invånare mellan 18-84 år i 36 svenska kommuner. Totalt deltog drygt 10200 personer i undersökningen. I takt med att mångfalden i samhället ökar framställs arenor som möjliggör kontakter mellan grupper alltmer centrala för den sociala sammanhållningen. Flera tidigare studier pekar på samband mellan exempelvis tillit och ökad livskvalitet, bättre självskattad hälsa. Kontakter mellan grupper inom ramen för civilsamhället förekommer i varierande utsträckning mellan typ av organisationer och kommuner. Resultaten pekar på betydelsen av att kontakterna uppfattas som positiva för tillit och tolerans mellan grupper. Resultaten är i linje med tidigare studier på att yngre är mer benägna att uppfatta kontakter som positiva än äldre.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper is thus to further explore the relationship between involvement in voluntary associations at the community level and specific forms of political participation. We pose the following questions. Do voluntary associations contribute to specific forms of individual political participation in a consociational context? Do voluntary associations encourage forms of political participation aimed at directly interacting with the policy process, or do they promote extraparliamentary forms of protest? The study contributes with testing three different measurements of community level involvement in voluntary associations and their correlations with individual level political participation. The empirical data is based upon a mulitilevel sample of 4232 individuals located in 33 different Swedish municipalities. Results show that only direct contacts with local elites are significantly correlated with community level participation in civil society organizations. This result may be interpreted as indicating that local voluntary associations contribute to the local political culture.

Abstract [en]

In this study I investigate whether and to what extent local voluntary associations in Sweden maintain values of democratic governance. The study is based upon a survey of about 400 local voluntary associations within four local communities. The results show that a vast majority of these associations are supportive of member influence and governance through internal democracy. These values can also explain civic engagement of these local voluntary associations. The results indicate that if these values would change radically it would probably have an impact on civic engagement of these organizations, but at present the support remains solid.

Abstract [en]

A cornerstone of democracy is the capacity of citizens to influence political decisions either through elections or by making their will known in the periods between elections. The aim of the present study is twofold: (1) to explore what factors inherent of the voluntary associations that determine the perceived success in their attempts to influence policy and (2) to investigate what role the composition of the local government have on the perceived success. This study is based on a survey conducted among 404 local voluntary associations in four different municipalities in Sweden. The results show that the frequency contacts influence perceived success positively, while the level of civic engagement of the voluntary associations affected the perceived success negatively. Having a heterogeneous local government also contributed positively to the perceived success to influence policy.

Abstract [sv]

Tillit mellan människor är en viktig resurs som kan bidra till att skapa lösningar på bland annat samhällsproblem. Är tilliten lätt att rasera eller är den i grund och botten stabil? Påverkas människors tillit av faktorer i omgivningen där de verkar och bor?

I Den svala svenska tilliten analyseras resultaten från internationella studier men framför allt från en stor befolkningsundersökning i 33 svenska kommuner. Tilliten i Sverige är hög i ett internationellt, jämförande perspektiv men det finns betydande skillnader inom landet. Detta gäller speciellt den form av tillit som författarna kallar lokalsamhälletillit. Analyserna visar också att såväl ojämlikhet som invandrarrelaterad mångfald är kopplade till lägre lokalsamhälletillit.

Sega sociala strukturer har historiskt skapat en bred men sval tillit i Sverige. Författarna frågar sig om den kan utmanas och försvagas av förändringsprocesser som märks främst på lokal nivå och om dessa förändringar nödvändigtvis är av ondo.

Abstract [en]

This article analyses the effect of immigration-related diversity on different forms of trust through the hierarchical analysis of three levels of approximately 5,000 respondents nested in over 800 neighbourhoods and 33 municipalities. The data set is based on a unique survey that was specially designed to measure different forms of trust and to test the effects of context. Building on previous findings about the effect of diversity on various forms of trust in Sweden, we discuss three mechanisms through which diversity may drive down community trust in diverse settings – dissimilarity, perceptions of unfairness and asymmetry of information and norms – and explore these empirically. In particular, we examine under which conditions asymmetry of information and norms and perceptions of unfairness affect community trust, and how it interacts with diversity. Our analysis reveals that norm asymmetry and perceptions of unfairness affect community trust negatively but the negative effects are more pronounced in the most diverse local communities.
