    Exceptions in the Swedish School System: Exploring the Conditions Facing Secular and Confessional Nonprofit Schools2023Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In the late 1980s and early 1990s, the Swedish school system underwent a series of reforms that opened up the system for independent schools funded through vouchers. Since then, for-profit firms have gained significant traction and constitute a far greater share of the school system compared to nonprofits. This dissertation aims to contribute to a better understanding of the conditions facing secular and confessional nonprofit schools, both during the establishment process and the day-to-day operations. To achieve this aim, I have adopted an institutional approach which in this case implies that I focus both on formal rules and regulations (i.e., legal framework) as well as systems of beliefs, values, and ideas. The articles included in the dissertation analyze four conditions. First, I point to how confessional schools have always been perceived as deviant and as reducing social cohesion. This remains true regardless of whether the value system of the Swedish school system has been said to rest on a secular or a religious foundation. Second, I show how a lack of a philanthropic infrastructure in Sweden makes it harder for nonprofits to initiate new schools. Third, I discuss how due to the marginal presence of independent schools in Sweden before the school choice reform there is a lack of intermediary organizations giving advice to nonprofit schools regarding best practices and representing them at the political level. Fourth, I show how the design of the legal framework of the school system puts high demands on nonprofit schools to conform both to a bureaucratic logic and a market logic. Taken together, the results point to various conditions that contribute to a situation in which secular and confessional nonprofit schools have difficulties asserting themselves in the Swedish school system.

    The continuation of perceived deviance: Independent confessional schools in Sweden 1795–20192023In: British Journal of Religious Education, ISSN 0141-6200, E-ISSN 1740-7931, Vol. 45, no 4, p. 313-324Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article aims to contribute to the ongoing discussion on public religion by describing how independent confessional schools were established in Sweden (1795–2019) and by clarifying and deconstructing the dominant ideals that underpin school policy initiatives concerning religion, education, and independent confessional schools. I seek to answer the question: In what way do independent confessional schools appear problematic in relation to general school policy during the period 1795–2019? Employing both descriptive quantitative analysis using register data on independent confessional schools and critical policy analysis inspired by Bacchi’s WPR-approach (‘What’s the Problem Represented to Be’), this study shows that (1) independent confessional schools are not a new or growing phenomenon in Sweden and (2) throughout this study’s focal period, regardless of whether a religious or secular foundation was ascribed to Sweden’s public school system, independent confessional schools were perceived to deviate from public schools’ principal values.

    Facing Newness and Smallness: A Multiple Case Study of Nonprofits Creating Schools2023In: Journal of Public and Nonprofit Affairs, ISSN 2381-3717, Vol. 9, no 2, p. 147-163Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper utilizes the literature on liability of newness and smallness to examine new nonprofit school venture creation and explore what challenges new school ventures face. We ask the following researchquestions: What challenges and obstacles do new nonprofit school ventures face? How do new nonprofit school ventures manage to maneuver, mitigate, or overcome these challenges and obstacles? To answer these questions, we conducted a comparative case studyof three nonprofit organizations operating schools in Sweden. Our material consisted of semi-structured interviews and archival documents. The article illuminates two salient challenges for new school ventures: the need for legitimacy from a diverse set of stakeholders and the marshalling of sufficient resources. To cope with these challenges, the organizations combined an outward conformist strategy with an inward resource replacement strategy. Moreover, even though all ventures experienced obstacles, thecharacter and magnitude of these obstacles differed depending on their mode of emergence.

    Civil Society Regimes and School Choice Reforms: Evidence from Sweden and Milwaukee2020In: Nonprofit Policy Forum, E-ISSN 2154-3348, Vol. 11, no 1, p. 1-37Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We examine the effects of school choice reforms implemented in the early 1990s in two different settings: Sweden and Milwaukee (WI, U.S.). We show how both the ideological and theoretical arguments for choice reform were similar in the two contexts, yet the consequences in terms of the organizational outcome and institutional sector configuration ended up strikingly dissimilar. While the new group of actors in the Swedish school system consisted primarily of large-scale for-profit schools, with only a minor share of the expansion being catered to by nonprofit actors, the Milwaukee school choice program became dominated by small-scale nonprofit schools operated by religious communities. We seek to explicate these differences by drawing on the welfare state literature and social origins theory, as well as from organizational and historical institutional theory. We argue that the resulting composition of providers is directly related to the deep-seated differences in the civil society regimes operating in the two contexts.

    Idéburen välfärd i Sverige: En systematisk litteraturstudie2022In: Socialvetenskaplig tidskrift, ISSN 1104-1420, E-ISSN 2003-5624, Vol. 29, no 1, p. 1-25Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The study provides an overview of published research on nonprofit welfare provision in Sweden and identifies potential gaps for future research. Taking the growing interest in civil society in general and nonprofit welfare in particular as our starting point, the article seeks to answer a series of questions. What scientific perspectives are utilized in the studies? When were they published? What welfare areas are studied? And ”are” the studies primarily concerned with users of welfare services, professionals, welfare-producing organizations or the welfare of society at large? We ana-lyse 161 published studies identified through a systematic search in three academic databases. The results are summarized using graphs and a narrative synthesis. The results show that research on nonprofit welfare provision has grown steadily since the early 1990s. The existing research is primarily on changing political and societal perceptions regarding what roles civil society orga-nizations should assume in a welfare society in transition and how this relates to international trends. Based on these results, we argue that research is lacking on the actual production of welfare services performed by civil society organizations in Sweden, and its significance for individual users, notably concerning research on nonprofit education and healthcare.

    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.
