  • Lost in motivation? The case of a Norwegian community healthcare project on ethical reflection 

    Nilsen, Heidi Rapp; Ringholm, Toril Merete (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-06-16)
    Innovations are needed to meet increasing challenges in public healthcare, and type of motivation has been identified as a pivotal factor for the success of an innovation. New public management crowd out the intrinsic motivation of employees which has resulted in a quest for more self-reliant service providers. This paper takes the opposite point of departure asking if intrinsic motivation can ...
  • Innovative Forms of Citizen Participation at the Fringe of the Formal Planning System 

    Nyseth, Torill; Ringholm, Toril Merete; Agger, Annika (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-01-24)
    In the Nordic countries, we are witnessing a proliferation of novel and more experimental ways of citizen and authority interaction within the field of urban planning and governance. These formats are seen in urban regeneration projects and planning experiments that endorse more inclusive interactions between public authorities and local actors than in the traditional formal hearings. The intention ...
  • The centre–periphery dimension and trust in politicians: the case of Norway 

    Stein, Jonas; Buck, Marcus; Bjørnå, Hilde (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-06-13)
    Scholars have often studied social, political and economic factors affecting trust. This article considers the relationship between spatial location and trust in politicians. We hypothesise that the centre‒periphery framework developed by Stein Rokkan has explanatory value for the study of trust in politicians. By using multilevel regression analysis on a large-N survey on a crucial case (Norway), ...
  • The local impact of increased numbers of state employees on start-ups in Norway 

    Stein, Jonas (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-07-23)
    The purpose of the article is to assess the impact of concentrations of state employees on local growth and development. Local multiplier effect theory suggests that the increased local demand for state employees, especially highly skilled employees, would stimulate the local supply of goods and services, and hence local development. However, other theories of regional development have shown that ...
  • Limitations to growth: Social-ecological challenges to aquaculture development in five wealthy nations 

    Young, Nathan; Brattland, Camilla; Digiovanni, Celeste; Hersoug, Bjørn; Johnsen, Jahn Petter; Karlsen, Kine Mari; Kvalvik, Ingrid; Olofsson, Erik; Simonsen, Knud; Solås, Ann-Magnhild; Thorarensen, Helgi (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-03-19)
    Aquaculture is a major contributor to global food production, but has attracted considerable controversy. Disagreements over the social and ecological impacts of aquaculture (positive and negative) have hindered further expansion of aquaculture production, particularly in wealthy democratic countries. This article presents findings from a series of workshops bringing international aquaculture scholars ...
  • Dressing down to fit in: Analyzing (re)orientation processes through stories about Norwegianization 

    Wara, Tatiana; Munkejord, Mai Camilla (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-01-09)
    This article addresses the relation between gender and social change in the context of east-west migration. Using a feminist phenomenologist and interpretative approach, the analysis shows that Russian female migrants in Northern Norway, although well-educated and generally well-integrated in the local labor market, often felt that they were on display and judged through their bodies. Their bodily ...

  • The Gendered North-South University Collaboration: Experiences and visions 

    Djingure, Mahmoudou; Gerrard, Siri; Holtedahl, Lisbet (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2000)
    The universities in the North and the South are as all institutions, gendered. That means that the ambitions of the universities reflect ideologies, which attribute different values to male and female students and teachers. These ideologies are also embodied in the various institutions, for example in the mandates of the programmes for North-South university collaboration. This article is based ...

  • Om å regulere samvaer 

    Holtedahl, Lisbet (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 1980)
    Dette er en artikkel om et "usynlig" fenomen, den dreier seg om noe vi har kalt "samvaersregulering". Det er også en artikkel om hvordan vi registrerte fenomenet, om metoden vi brukte.<p> <p>Denne artikkelen vil vi gjerne at planleggere skal lese. Vi tror, at når man har som yrke å planlegge andre menneskers fysiske eller sosiale vilkår, da er det spesielt nyttig å bli minnet om samvaersreguleringen ...

    Stein, Jonas (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-03)
    Contrary to the view held by many actors, this paper, by using a quantitative and longitudinal analysis in a comparative perspective, show that demographic development in Northern Norway and Northern Sweden is much more similar than many think. Over the last 60 years, there has been a small negative trend in the relative percentage of the national population that lives in the two regions, with ...
  • Magi og kjærlighet på veien til høyere utdannelse 

    Holtedahl, Lisbet (Konferansebidrag, 1995)
    I vesten og i den tredje verden finner man en mengde ulike bilder av formell vestlig utdannelse. I dagliglivet forsøker folk å koordinere forskjellige kunnskapsfelt, lokale og globale3. Konstruksjonen av bilder av vestlig utdannelse og synet på hvilken betydning en slik utdannelse får for den enkelte og for samfunnet er et komplekst emne. I dag samhandler de fleste mennesker med folk som er involvert ...

  • Positiv sosiologi. Fotnoter til en uutgravd sosiologi 

    Aakvaag, Gunnar C. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-08-21)
    Inspirert av det faghistoriske skillet mellom funksjonalisme og konfliktteori introduserer og forsvarer denne artikkelen et rammeverk for en positiv sosiologi; en sosiologi om det som fungerer godt i samfunnet. Jeg presenterer og kritiserer først den positive sosiologiens hovedkonkurrent, den kritiske sosiologien, hvorpå jeg lanserer et rammeverk for positiv sosiologi basert på tre pilarer: ...
