    Ett pris man får betala?: Om kvalitet i socialtjänstens arbete med skyddat boende2022In: Sociologisk tidskrift, ISSN 0038-0342, Vol. 59, no 4, p. 447-471Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    While most shelters for abused women in Sweden used to be run by the women’s movement, about half of the shelters are, today, operated by private companies. The social services’ procurement of these shelters has resulted in increased demands for quality and monito-ring. This article examines perceptions of quality regarding shelters among local politicians on municipal level and managers in the social services. The analysis shows that perceptions of quality range from adherence to the social services’ assignment orders to evidence, cost-effectiveness, and competence among staff both at the social services and shelters. Moreover, an overly “caring” attitude among staff both at the social services and shelters is portrayed as problematic and unprofessional. The article concludes that the social services’ work with quality, procurement of, and placements in shelters can constitute an unwieldy conf lict surface where logics and practices typical of both market and welfare are pitted against each other

    Gender in nonprofit organizations: A critical review and research agenda2023In: Nonprofit Management & Leadership, ISSN 1048-6682, E-ISSN 1542-7854, Vol. 34, no 1, p. 195-209Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we suggest a research agenda based on a review of literature exploring gender in nonprofit organizations (NPOs) published in key field-specific journals in nonprofit studies. The literature review shows that gender is often included as an unproblematized variable and that few studies focus on organizational processes that (re)produce gender inequalities and promote gender equality in NPOs. There is thus a need to expand our knowledge concerning gender in NPOs. The purpose of this paper is therefore to contribute to the development of empirical and theoretical work concerning organizational processes that (re)produce gender in NPOs. In order to inspire such endeavors, we outline a research agenda that proposes an understanding of gender informed by gender theory, an acknowledgement of NPOs as arenas where gender is (re)produced, and a development of theories on NPOs as gendered organizations.

    Reading nonprofit leadership from a gender perspective2019In: Reframing nonprofit organizations: Democracy, inclusion and social change / [ed] Angela M. Eikenberry; Roseanne M. Mirabella; Billie Sandberg, Irvine, CA: Melvin & Leigh, Publishers , 2019, p. 92-105Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing on feminist theory and critique, this chapter explores how gender and gender inequalities are accounted for in mainstream scholarly writings on nonprofit leadership, and discusses the way this affects our understanding of leaders and leadership in nonprofit organizations (NPOs). By this we hope you will have an opportunity to expand your perspective of leadership and at the same time help you obtain a few tools for how to understand this particular topic not only in texts, but also in real life.

    Business as Usual?: On Managerialization and the Adoption of the Balanced Scorecard in a Democratically Governed Civil Society Organization2013In: Administrative Theory & Praxis, ISSN 1084-1806 (Print) 1949-0461 (Online), Vol. 35, no 2, p. 223-247Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores the process through which civil society organizations (CSOs) adopt and develop reliance on corporate management knowledge and practices. It draws on theories related to organizational change and critical approaches to managerialism in an analysis of how and with what consequences a large and democratically governed Swedish CSO adopted the balanced scorecard. The analysis suggests that the adoption of corporate management knowledge and practices (1) involves a dialectic relationship with other change processes, in this case centralization and professionalization, (2) institutionalizes the idea that the corporate world provides valid solutions for how to assess and develop CSOs, and (3) creates or widens the divide between internal democratic governance and executive structures. The concluding section discusses these results and suggests further research.

    Revisiting the political nature of corporate philanthropic foundations: the case of Sweden2020In: Handbook on corporate foundations / [ed] Lonneke Roza; Steffen Bethmann; Lucas Meijs; Georg von Schnurbein, Cham, Switzerland: Springer Publishing Company, 2020, p. 253-269Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Almost a decade ago, it was argued that scholarly knowledge largely overlooked the political nature of foundations in favor of issues related to legislation, board composition, management, and societal contributions. As this argument still seems to apply, the aim of this chapter is to explore the political nature of corporate foundations (CFs). To meet this aim, this chapter draws out the contours of an emergent social imaginary concerning welfare provision from the outlook of CFs. The analysis builds on both survey data regarding CFs in Sweden and interviews with representatives from four different Swedish CFs, concerning the interlock between organizational visions and perceived contributions to welfare in this national context. A main conclusion in the chapter relates to the intermediary position of these organizations as they straddle the boundaries of corporate contexts and a public welfare system where they have a potential to influence both these worlds simultaneously, by carrying norms, values, and practices between them. It is also here that parts of the political significance of CFs can be found—both as expressions and containers of an emergent political vision of welfare in society.

    Vad står på spel?: Om finansiering, folkhälsa och synen på mål och medel i det civila samhället2018In: Socialmedicinsk Tidskrift, ISSN 0037-833X, Vol. 95, no 5, p. 577-585Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Ofta hävdas en självklart positiv relation mellan folkhälsa och civilsamhälle. Vi menar att detta inte är givet. Många ideella organisationer har en lång tradition av att tjäna pengar på spel och lotterier, något som historiskt också har uppmuntrats av staten. Sedan slutet av 1980-talet har dock spelandets negativa konsekvenser uppmärksammats allt flitigare. I denna artikel diskuterar vi hur man i de ideella organisationer där spel- och lotteriintäkter har  betydelse hanterar det dilemma som tycks uppstå i och med att spelberoende blivit ett folkhälsoproblem samtidigt som organisationerna ifråga har få eller inga alternativa intäktskällor. Med material från pågående forskning exemplifieras hur denna situation ytterst kan handla om gränsdragningar och hur man väljer att se på relationen mellan mål och medel.

    Abstract [en]

    The fact that most research on nonprofit management education programs focuses on credit-based programs (Lee, 2002), coupled with the finding that international comparisons reveal national differences (Mirabella, Gemelli, Malcolm, & Berger, 2007), calls for more case-study and comparative research (Dolch, Ernst, McClusky, Mirabella, & Sadow, 2007; Donnelly-Cox & McGee, 2007; Mirabella, 2007; Wilson & Larson, 2002). Based on a panel presentation (Hvenmark & Segnestam Larsson, 2011), this article provides a brief presentation of the situation in Sweden with respect to nonprofit management education programs. It also offers an interpretation as to why the case of Sweden deviates from other countries, particularly regarding non-credit-based education programs. We then argue that these results enhance the knowledge and importance of national contexts and how they affect the development of nonprofit management education programs.

    Abstract [en]

    This is a case study of how football associations in Stockholm handled the Corona pandemic in the spring of 2020. In Sweden, personal responsibility was emphasized, which meant that associations and voluntary leaders were given a great responsibility to interpret, manage and control compliance with the recommendations and restrictions decided. The results show that at all levels there were fears that even a temporary shut-down could have long term negative consequences. A key event was that the St Erikscup could be carried out, which during the pandemic added the unfamiliar role for the volunteers to try to keep certain hygiene rules and to ensure that no more than a maximum of 50 people gathered in connection with the matches.

    Social Innovation for Work Inclusion: Contributions of Swedish Third Sector Organizations2022In: Nordic Journal of Working Life Studies, E-ISSN 2245-0157, Vol. 12, no 3, p. 23-44Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The innovative contributions of third sector organizations (TSOs) to tackle work-related societal challenges are increasingly acknowledged in policy and research, but rarely in Nordic working life studies. The article helps fill this knowledge gap by an empirical mapping of efforts by Swedish TSOs to promote work inclusion among people considered disadvantaged in the regular labor market, due to age, disabilities, origin, etc. Previous studies of social innovation help distinguish their innovativeness in terms of alternative or complementary ways to perceive and promote work inclusion in regard to Swedish labor market policies. By combining various measures for providing and preparing work opportunities, addressing their participants through individualistic and holistic approaches, and manag-ing work inclusion by varying organization, funding, and alliances, the mapped cases seem to innova-tively compensate for government and market failures in the work inclusion domain to some extent, while also being limited by their own voluntary failures.

    Variations on a theme: Exploring understandings of the marketisation concept in civil society research2020In: International Review of Sociology, ISSN 0390-6701, E-ISSN 1469-9273, Vol. 30, no 3, p. 443-468Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    It is, today, widely accepted that market structures, logics, identities and activities are spreading throughout society, including civil society and its organisations. Scholars increasingly use the marketisation concept to describe these tendencies. This paper reviews the meaning attached to this concept, when used in the context of civil society. A sample of 210 peer-reviewed articles in civil society studies published between 1993 and 2017 is explored in an analysis that suggests that marketisation is being used with much variation in the literature. The analysis also shows that apart from more generic descriptions of persistent attempts to privatise and commodify various goods and services, few articles seem to involve more detailed definitions or profound conceptual arguments. Taken together, this indicates a development where the concept of marketisation runs the risk of losing its analytical powers. To avoid this, the paper proposes a stricter and more transparent use of the term ‘marketisation’ and suggests ways to further develop this concept in research.

    Abstract [en]

    Over the last few decades, the world has experienced an unprecedented growth in the size and scope of civil society organizations (Boli & Thomas, 1999; Kaldor, Moore, & Selchow, 2012).1 On par with these developments is the ever increasing significance of what these organizations assumingly can and should do to mitigate and solve some of the more pressing social and environmental issues we currently face locally and globally. Yet despite the growing numbers and allotted importance of civil society organizations, relatively little is known globally about how we prepare, train, and educate present and future leaders and professionals in these organizations, nor have more normative issues been sufficiently addressed, such as how we should be preparing individuals for leading, managing, or administering these organizations.

    Abstract [en]

    This is the third themed issue in the Journal of Nonprofit Education and Leadership (JNEL) in which researchers around the world examine regional and national training and education programs for individuals with civil society leadership roles. When we as editors set our sails in the early years of the last decade, the third issue was always our planned destination. However, as with most voyages, things do not always go according to plan. As we now proudly present the third issue, we are already hard at work with two more themed issues—one with a focus on a set of countries in Southeast Asia and another with a focus on regional mappings and studies. Over time have we come to realize that this voyage has no one harbor, to arrive at once and for all, and that the true delight is the cruise itself.

    Varför ska man vara medlem?: Om betydelsen av medlemskap, ideellt engagemang och alternativa engagemangsformer i idrottsföreningar2015In: Idrottens pris: Om idrottens kostnader och medlemskapet betydelse / [ed] Christine Dartsch; Johan R.

    Abstract [sv]

    Två studier om idrottens pris

    ”För förr låg en Kalles Kaviar tredagarscup tidigt på sommaren, utanför högsäsong. Men nu har det blivit en femdagarscup under högsäsong. Vi konstaterade snart, att bara för min familj skulle det kosta oss tiotusen att åka med en son.” (Idrottsförälder)

    Under senare år har kostnaderna inom barn- och ungdomsidrotten blivit ett alltmer omtalat ämne. Bakgrunden ska delvis sökas i en oro för att landets idrottsföreningar successivt höjt sina medlems- och träningsavgifter med följden att alla unga inte längre har råd att vara med. Till detta kommer att den traditionella föreningsidrotten fått konkurrens av idrottsverksamheter i kommersiell regi. De nya företagen erbjuder allt från prova på-verksamhet för de minsta till breda idrottsläger och individuella spelarutbildningar på hög teknisk nivå. Denna trend har även upptagits av många idrottsföreningar med följden att dagens unga visserligen har ett ökat utbud av idrottsliga valmöjligheter att välja mellan – men endast under förutsättning att deras familjer har råd att betala.

    I denna rapport presenteras två nya studier om idrottens kostnader. I det första bidraget undersöker Stefan Wagnsson och Christian Augustsson vid Karlstad universitet hur föräldrar till idrottsaktiva barn resonerar och förhåller sig till en ökad kommersialisering av barn- och ungdomsidrotten. I den andra studien analyserar Karin Robertsson och Johan Hvenmark vid Ersta Sköndal högskola hur idrottsföreningars representanter tänker i frågor rörande kostnader, medlemskap och ideellt engagemang. De två studierna bildar en helhet. Även om de närmar sig frågan om idrottens kostnader från olika utgångspunkter, så skapar de en påfallande samstämmig bild av hur landets klubbar och idrottsföräldrar möter de nya kommersialiserings- och professionaliseringstrenderna i barn- och ungdomsidrotten. Å ena sidan framkommer att föreningsidrottens ideal och principer alltjämt har en stark ställning.

    Båda parter talar sig varma för en föreningsverksamhet baserad på öppenhet, medlemsinflytande, frånvaro av vinstintresse och låga avgifter. Å andra sidan upplever de samtidigt ett starkt marknadstryck. Idrottsföräldrarna beskriver en utveckling där höjda kostnader uppstått i takt med att cup- och träningsavgifter höjts och nymodigheter som ”camps” och ”idrottsakademier” blivit allt vanligare. För idrottsföreningarna bottnar marknadstrycket på motsvarande sätt i upplevda krav att bedriva en alltmer professionaliserad och kundorienterad verksamhet. Effekten blir en uppskruvad kommersialiseringsspiral där den traditionella föreningens ideella verksamhet i allt högre grad ersätts av marknadsmässiga lösningar och – som en konsekvens – även höjda kostnader.

    Både idrottsföräldrar och föreningsrepresentanter beskriver det rådande marknadstrycket som en sorts oundviklig samhällsprocess och ett uttryck av tidsandan. Med ett sådant synsätt bortser de emellertid från att de själva är aktörer och därmed delaktiga i att skapa de förändringar som marknadstrycket ger för svensk idrottsrörelse. Kanske är det därför mer rimligt att betrakta rådande kommersialiseringstrender som en sorts skiljeväg? Den avgörande frågan blir därmed vilken väg som svensk föreningsidrott kommer att välja. Blir valet att möta det ökade marknadstrycket genom att klubbar och förbund själva utvecklar företagslika strategier och synsätt? Eller blir vägvalet att snarare markera folkrörelsetraditionens kärnvärden av öppenhet, medlemsinflytande och ideellt engagemang? Eller finns det kanske en tredje väg där traditionella föreningsideal kan förenas med ett nytt kommersialiserat idrottslandskap?

    Båda undersökningarna har tillkommit inom ramen för Centrum för idrottsforsknings uppföljning av statens stöd till idrotten 2014.

    Changing Forms of Involvement in Socially Oriented CSOs?: Mapping the Organizational Repertoire of Involvement in Four CSOs from 1996 to 20152017Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study set out to explore the organizational repertoire of involvement in four socially oriented CSOs in Sweden from 1996 to 2015. Data are drawn from a content analysis of organizations archived websites. Over time, tentative results indicate a looser connection between being a formal member and doing voluntary work for that same organization, a significant increase regarding forms of involvement categorized as voluntary work as well as giving and, a shift in terminology. Finally, in light of comparison to prior studies the authors suggest adding yet another empirical dimension to the organizational repertoire of involvement – attention.

    International Mappings of Nonprofit Management Education: An Analytical Framework and the Case of Sweden2012In: Nonprofit Management & Leadership, ISSN 1048-6682, E-ISSN 1542-7854, Nonprofit Management and Leadership, ISSN 1542-7854, Vol. 23, no 1, p. 59-75Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous efforts to map and compare nonprofit management edu- cation across countries have proved difficult due to method- ological issues, conceptual developments, and empirical focus. Based in recent empirical research from Sweden, this article pre- sents an analytical framework that focuses on credit- and non- credit-based education, syllabi content, and organization of programs and courses and therefore allows for comparisons and analysis of nonprofit management education across countries. This framework may also contribute to the discussion on the best place for nonprofit management education and provide insights into the relationship between national nonprofit sector contexts and nonprofit management education.

    The Board Development Conundrum in Local, Democratically Governed, and Membership-based Nonprofit Organizations2013Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Board research, assumes that board members in nonprofit organizations are ready to undertake board development activities to improve performance, efficiency, and accountability. Findings from questionnaire of a representative sample of 20.000 local, democratically governed, and membership-based nonprofit organizations in the field of sports in Sweden challenge the general validity of this assumption. For example, board members in local nonprofit organizations in Sweden regard working experience as more relevant for fulfilling the organizational mission than either formal or board education. Moreover, board development activities are oftentimes encouraged, but neither prioritized nor implemented. The proposed paper will therefore discuss the implications of these findings for the research field of nonprofit governance as well as address alternative development activities for local, democratically governed, and membership-based nonprofit organizations.

    Hybrid Organizing, Nonprofit Marketization and Mission Drift: A Cross-Country Analysis2023Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    By now, mission drift is established as one of the cardinal sins of hybrid organizing (Jones, 2007). Broadly defined as the perceived discontinuity between organizational goals and actions, mission drift is inextricably linked to nonprofit marketization (Eikenberry & Kluver, 2004). Not just one thing, different forms of nonprofit marketization can induce different forms of mission drift. For instance, when pressured to meet contractual targets, NPOs may engage in cherry-picking or creaming practices shifting focus from those in need to those who (a) are able to participate (Hustinx & De Waele, 2015), (b) are (more) easy to serve (Dart, 2004), and/or (c) can afford (Khieng & Dahles, 2015). Likewise, rising levels of resource uncertainty due to competitive tendering is likely to stimulate vendorism among NPOs. Lastly, NPOs can decide to strategically cut back on their advocacy efforts due to the introduction of business-like practices. Baines (2010, p. 14) for example notes that the introduction of performance measurement and process standardization resulted in “paid nonprofit staff hav[ing] little or no time to devote to advocacy”. In a similar vein, Dong, Lu, and Lee (2022, p. 9) observe that high levels of commercial income diminished nonprofit advocacy efforts by Chinese NPOs, reasoning that “engagement in mission-related but unprofitable activities becomes less attractive” to commercialized NPOs.

    Despite the widespread belief that marketization can induce mission drift, large-N research examining the relationship between different manifestations of (a) nonprofit marketization and (b) mission drift remains largely absent to date. This is important, as it provides insight to what extent mission drift is in fact likely, and which specific dynamics underlying both dynamics are in fact associated. In this study, we aim to tackle this issue by analyzing primary survey data collected from nonprofit executives in Sweden, Belgium and the US (N = 831). In addition to basic organization information (size, task, age), questions included indicators of both nonprofit marketization and mission drift.
