Abstract [en]

This practice paper articulates the key learnings for philanthropic organizations based on their experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic. Which actions can philanthropic organizations take to best support community needs during times of crisis? To answer this question, we synthesize information about how philanthropic organizations responded during the early COVID-19 crisis (spring―fall 2020) across 11 countries: Australia, Austria, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Israel, Norway, Sweden, the Republic of Korea, the Russian Federation, and the United States of America. Results indicate four key actions that we recommend philanthropic organizations take during times of crisis: (1) Assess community needs; (2) engage with volunteers and donors; (3) communicate effectively and strategically with volunteers, donors, and the public; and (4) focus on equity.

Abstract [sv]

Det verkar finnas brett politiskt stöd för tanken att Sverige borde ha fler ochmer idéburna välfärdstjänster. Denna artikel undersöker vad Sverige har attvinna på en större andel idéburen välfärd och vilka förutsättningar den idéburnasektorn har att förändra den svenska välfärdsstaten. Dessa frågor besvarasmed två forskningsöversikter, en om idéburen välfärd i stort och en annanom kooperativ välfärd. Resultaten visar att den idéburna sektorn har möjlighetatt förbättra vård och omsorgstjänster, men bara i sådan utsträckning som detillåts utveckla en särart som skiljer dem från offentliga och vinstdrivande utförare.Vidare visar resultaten att det nu finns möjlighet till formering av en nyidéburen sektor som kan förändra den svenska välfärdsstaten, men för att denska bli verklighet behövs politisk vilja både från stat och civilsamhälle.

Abstract [en]

There seems to be broad political support for the idea that Sweden shouldhave more of nonprofit welfare services. This article investigates what theSweden stand to gain by a larger share of nonprofit welfare, and what thepotential is for the nonprofit sector to reform the Swedish welfare state. Theseissues are addressed by two literature reviews, one about nonprofit welfareservices in general and a second about cooperative welfare services. The resultsshow that the nonprofit sector has potential to improve welfare services,but only to the extent that they are allowed to develop their special character.Furthermore, the results show that there are now a chance to create a newnonprofit sector that could change the welfare state, provided there is politicalwill on the part of both government and civil society.

Abstract [en]

Cooperatives exist in countries around the world and the cooperative idea almost seems to have universal appeal and application. At its core is the idea of mutual gain through cooperation among members, cooperation that allow the contribution of the individual member to be multiplied to the benefit of him or her and for the cooperative as a collective. The cooperative idea is an idea about joining with others to do it for yourself, the group and perhaps also society as a whole. Cooperatives have therefore often been a grassroot solution to problems not solved, or interests not addressed by, the state or businesses on the free market. In short, when no one else is providing what you need, you can organize with others with the same interest and provide it for yourselves out of the power of a cooperative. 

In terms of welfare service provision this means that when services are missing, of poor quality or of a variety not preferred, then those services can be provided by a cooperative. The provision of welfare services takes different forms in different countries and these different forms have been categorized in welfare regimes. A very distinct welfare regime with a very distinct form of welfare service provision is the social democratic welfare regime of primarily the Nordic countries in the north of Europe. Here welfare services are almost entirely paid for by public money and the welfare services are to a large extent provided by central, regional and local government institutions. To maintain this welfare regime, the government collects high taxes from the general public, taxes that are mostly paid willingly in expectation of receiving welfare services of a high standard in return. The high taxes are the price paid for public health insurance, tuition free education from elementary school to universities and heavily subsidized child and eldercare services. What would cause people who have already paid high taxes to receive welfare services to organize in a cooperative to provide such services? What are the incentives to co-produce with others when the expectation is on the state to deliver welfare services? 

These are questions addressed in this chapter and to answer them we will look at research on cooperatives and co-production from four Nordic countries; Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. The collected knowledge from these four countries will show that the reasons for forming cooperatives and the roles they play in welfare services are varied and plentiful. It will also illustrate that there is, in fact, no contradiction in having both a large, publicly funded, welfare state and active participation by co-producing citizens in welfare services. These findings from the Nordic countries are also compared to the findings about Japanese health and medical cooperatives presented in other chapters of this book.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna översiktsartikel är att sätta in matdistribution till personer i fattigdom i ett sammanhang, för att bättre förstå dess betydelse för mottagare, civilsamhällesorganisationer och i förlängningen även välfärdsmodellen i Sverige. Artikeln synliggör en förändring där ett ökat behov av kostnadsfri eller billig mat för fattiga grupper möts av ett ökat utbud av mat distribuerat av civilsamhället, en till synes ideal lösning för minskad fattigdom och klimatkris. Analysen visar dock på en spänning och en dubbelsidighet mellan synbart högst önskvärda effekter (att mat ej kastas och människor i fattigdom får mat för dagen) och förvånansvärt allvarliga potentiella bieffekter och underliggande problem. Till det senare räknas transformation och risk för institutionalisering av civilsamhällets arbete som innebär en diffusion av ansvar och mix av institutionella logiker mellan offentlig välfärd, näringsliv och civilsamhälle. Konklusionen blir att en hållbarhetsparadox tar form och att fattigdom och klimat kan visa sig vara två separata problem som kräver sina separata lösningar.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this article is to contextualize food distribution to better understand its significance for poor recipients, civil society organisations, and ultimately also the Swedish welfare model. The article highlights a change where an increased need for free or cheap food for poor groups is handled by an increased supply of food waste distributed by civil society organisations, a seemingly ideal and innovative solution to reduce poverty and the climate crisis. However, the results show tension and a duality between apparent beneficial effects (that food is not thrown away and that people in poverty get affordable food) and surprisingly serious potential side effects and underlying problems. The latter includes the transformation and risk of institutionalization of civil society’s work, which may lead to diffusion of responsibility and a mix of institutional logic between public welfare, business, and civil society. In conclusion, a sustainability paradox takes shape, and it suggests that poverty and climate change may be two separate problems that require their separate solutions.

Abstract [sv]

I det här kapitlet beskrivs hur givande av pengar tar sig uttryck som ett medborgerligt engagemang i Sverige. Mycket tyder på att vi i Sverige harett förhållningssätt till penninggåvor som skiljer sig från det i många andra länder, och att detta förhållningssätt beror på hur vi ser på användningen av privata och offentliga pengar för privata och offentliga intressen. Det sätt på vilket vi som medborgare ger pengar till ändamål vi stödjer har djupa historiska rötter och säger därför något om det svenska samhället, hur det har varit och vart det är på väg.

Abstract [en]

This article contributes with a nuanced picture of the importance of civil society for young people’s democratic socialisation and opportunities for influence, by studying public statistics on changes in membership rates in national youth organisations. Young people have long been given a special status in society and they are often perceived as either a threat or a promise. Young people’s special status is based on the fact that they do not really belong to the rest of society. They depend in different ways on others for their immediate livelihood, socialisation and for risk protection. But they also have the potential to contribute with new perspectives and change to outdated institutions. Because of their age, young people have been considered to need both democratic schooling and opportunities to find a context to express their commitment. Engagements in associations among young people has therefore been actively encouraged and supported by the state since at least the beginning of the 20th century. The results of this article show that until sometime in the 1970s and 1980s, participation in most types of national youth organisations increased, but that membership numbers subsequently decreased more or less drastically in organisations based on traditional popular mass movements, while others have increased or maintained their membership numbers.

We interpret the historical overview as evidence that the state subsidies since long has survived their purpose. The original mass movement organizations are declining in memberships, despite the efforts and those that are growing often follow the democratic procedures more to live up to the rules of the state than because of the desire to be governed by the will of the members and to change society.

Abstract [en]

This paper aims to contribute to the knowledge about open, co-produced meeting centres for people with dementia, from their own perspective. Services that support people who are newly diagnosed with dementia are often insufficient. Co-produced services have the potential to address the need of people with dementia to be useful and productive, while reducing the stigma. In this study, we applied a qualitative design. Data were collected at a meeting centre for people with newly diagnosed dementia, and consisted of fieldwork (13 days for about two hours at a time), written materials, and semi-structured interviews (mean length 30 minutes) with five attendees with dementia and two staff persons. The analysis was inspired by situational analysis. The findings showed that the meeting centre provided a place for human encounters, a break from everyday life, and a place to share knowledge and develop new skills. Further, challenges were described. Co-production consisted of the attendees being encouraged to take part in the planning of activities, learning from each other and providing mutual support. The study adds to previous knowledge about co-produced services for people with dementia. Future studies can clarify how co-production can be developed in services for people with newly diagnosed dementia in countries and regions where there is a dearth of this kind of support.
