Abstract [en]

With this set of three interlinked papers, we wish to push for a more integrated ethnographic approach to decision-making. Each of the three contributions explicitly explores the cultural embedding of interactions and processes leading up to decisions. The introductory paper by Boholm, Henning and Krzyworzeka calls for a critical re-examination of a plethora of phenomena relating to choice and decision-making, occasionally addressed by anthropologists, but more regularly studied by economists, political scientists, psychologists, and organization scholars. The empirical foci of the following two articles by Krzyworzeka and by Sjölander-Lindquist and Sinque are on decision-making among farmers in Poland and among wild life inspectors in Sweden, respectively. As indicated by the subjects of these case studies, we aim particularly to engage in discussions about decision-making with strong societal relevance.
