  • Will migrant workers rescue rural regions? Challenges of creating stability through mobility 

    Aure, Marit; Førde, Anniken; Magnussen, Tone (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-03-16)
    Many rural communities experience new growth through in-migration. In Herøy, Northern Norway, this is a result of increased labour migration in the fishing industry and a comprehensive effort by the municipality to encourage migrant workers to settle there. This paper addresses the ambiguities of creating stability through mobility. Through a case study from Herøy, we explore the complex relations ...

  • Re-politicisation as post-NPM response? Municipal companies in a Norwegian context 

    Moldenæs, Turid; Torsteinsen, Harald (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-03-17)
    This is an exploratory study of re-politicisation of municipal companies in one Norwegian municipality. Unlike re-municipalisation, which seems to imply the reversal of privatisation and out-contracting, and the reinstitution of municipal ownership, the Norwegian case demonstrates a continued adherence to the provision of certain public services through municipal companies. However, our study reveals ...
  • Reducing Energy Subsidies in China, India and Russia: Dilemmas for Decision Makers 

    Dansie, Grant; Øverland, Indra; Lanteigne, Marc (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2010-02-01)
    This article examines and compares efforts to reduce energy subsidies in China, India and Russia. Despite dissimilarities in forms of governance, these three states have followed surprisingly similar patterns in reducing energy subsidies, characterised by two steps forward, one step back. Non-democratic governments and energy importers might be expected to be more likely to halt subsidies. In fact, ...

  • Promoting and Protecting Values through Leadership Agency: Experiences from Disaggregation and Autonomisation of Waste Management 

    Andersen, Ole Johan; Torsteinsen, Harald (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016)
    Disaggregation and autonomisation of public service procurement have been at the cutting edge for the last two to three decades, not least due to the importance that reform programmes inspired by New Public Management (NPM) have acquired. This development has led to widespread corporatisation and increasing emphasis on leadership and managerial freedom. In this article, we explore the role of ...

  • Imagining a Postpetroleum Arctic. 

    Dale, Brigt; Kristoffersen, Berit (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-07-29)
    As tensions mount across the Arctic concerning the utilization of natural resources and the implications for ecologies and their social connectedness, we bring attention to how futures beyond the (potential) extraction period are considered. What does the future hold if one looks beyond the extraction period of nonrenewable resources, and how do these questions of where we are heading inform local ...

  • Story found or story lost? Storytelling in audiovisual municipality branding. 

    Moldenæs, Turid (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016)
    The aim of the article is to add to our knowledge of reputation management efforts in municipalities. Despite the multitude of such efforts, few have been studied. The specific focus is on the contents of reputation films made by Norwegian municipalities. Is there a story in these films? If so, what is the message conveyed, and is it convincing in its attempt to present the different municipalities ...
  • Transnational science Guanxi: A necessary, but insufficient, condition for Sino-Danish flows of knowledge, talent and capital in genetics 

    Bertelsen, Rasmus Gjedssø; Du, Xiangyun; Søndergaard, Martin Karnøe (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016)
    Genetics is observed as a particularly active field of Sino-Danish science collaboration, brain circulation and funding. Explaining the level of activity of this scientific field is therefore valuable for understanding the conditions allowing such activity. This paper identifies Danish scientific excellence as a necessary, but insufficient, condition. This condition becomes sufficient together with ...

    Smits, Coco; Justinussen, Jens Christian Svabo; Bertelsen, Rasmus Gjedssø (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-04-04)
    The Arctic region is opening up due to climate change, causing sea ice extend and snow cover to decrease. Over the past decade economic activities, including fisheries, shipping, oil & gas, mining and tourism have increased throughout the region. Especially the oil and gas activities are subject to public debate and attract a lot of (international) attention. Obtaining and maintaining the support ...
