    En väg till utveckling?: Betydelsen av väginvesteringar för regional utveckling - exemplet Falun-Borlänge2007Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna rapport behandlar förutsättningar för regionala utvecklingseffekter av en väginvestering. Projektet är en inledande studie kring effekterna av vägen mellan Falun och Borlänge som öppnades för trafik 2005. Projektet är finansierat av Vägverket. Projektet avser att besvara två huvudsakliga frågeställningar: Vilka samhälleliga effekter får en ny väg mellan två städer som ligger inom samma lokala arbetsmarknad? Kan betydelsen för en region av en väginvestering påverkas genom medvetet arbete från regionens aktörer för att utnyttja dess potential? I vår studie går vi bortom själva tidsvinsten och fördjupar oss i hur utbytet mellan de två kommunerna ser ut och förändras. Vi vill också komma åt orsakerna till dessa förändringar. Det är intressant för oss hur aktörernas perspektiv och förväntningar omvandlas till beslut kring resande, byggande, kollektivtrafiksatsningar osv. Betydelsen av den nya vägen avgörs till stor del av hur regionens aktörer ser på den och agerar för att ta vara på dess potential. Studien kan ses som en förstudie. Avsikten har varit att studera utbytet mellan orterna innan vägens färdigställande och att kartlägga synen på regionens potential, vägens betydelse hos företrädare för näringslivsorganisationer, större arbetsgivare, politiker, m fl. Frågorna måste besvaras genom flera olika delstudier med skilda perspektiv. Vi har arbetat med intervjuer med beslutsfattare i den berörda regionen, vi har studerat pendlingsrörelser, analyserat kollektivtrafikens utveckling och vi har försökt att sätta in vägen i ett regionalpolitiskt utvecklingsperspektiv. Fokus i studien ligger på institutionella förhållanden och begrepp och processer i regional utveckling.

    Forskning och utveckling i kommuner, landsting och regioner2005Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien är att identifiera, kartlägga och analysera offentlig forskning och utveckling (FoU) som helt eller delvis finansieras av kommuner, landsting eller regioner. Fokus ligger på de lokala och regionala FoU-enheter som finns i samtliga län, Gotland undantaget. I studien konstateras att antalet FoU-enheter har blivit fler sedan Dalarnas forskningsråd 2000 gjorde en kartläggning av antalet FoU-enheter i rapporten Det dolda universitetet. Men huruvida FoU inom det offentliga har ökat i omfattning är omöjligt att säga något om utifrån materialet i denna studie. Det framkommer nämligen att FoU inte bara bedrivs inom de lokala och regionala FoU-enheter som belysts i denna studie utan även i kommunernas, landstingens och regionernas övriga verksamheter. Att då endast titta på antalet FoU-enheter skulle vara att kraftigt underskatta de resurser som avsätts till FoU i dessa organisationer. Det är framförallt två frågor som återkommit så ofta i studien att de får anses vara de dominerande inom lokal och regional FoU: • dels den kortsiktiga finansieringen, och • dels den bristande kommunikationen mellan utförare av FoU och kommun- och landstingspolitiker. Dessa två frågor har ett tydligt samband. Med en bättre kommunikation där båda parter vet vad politikerna vill få ut av anslagen till FoU blir diskussionen om anslag just en diskussion och inte bara en förfrågan om pengar. Det är också tydligt att statens agerande har stor påverkan på hur kommuner och landsting ställer sig till finansiering av FoU.

    Young Adult Transition in a Tourism Dominated Rural Area2012In: Tourism Planning & Development, ISSN 2156-8316, Vol. 9, no 4, p. 429-440Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Rural peripheral areas generally have an ageing and declining population, few possibilities for education, limited labour market opportunities, and a net loss of young adults. However, some peripheral rural areas hosting large-scale tourism industry has faced a different development. But despite the fact that the loss of young adults is important for the development of these areas, the adult transition in a tourism context has not been so well addressed. In this paper the adult transition in Sälen, a large-scale winter tourism destination, is explored. The analysis is based on life history interviews with focus on how young adults experience the ability to make a living (year-round) in the tourism-dominated area. The way in which they perceive their current and possible future life in Sälen is important when they make decisions about how and where to shape their futures. The findings imply that the flows of people passing through Sälen, as tourists and young seasonal workers, are important both socially and economically for the young adult inhabitants, which in turn contributes to a more secure adult transition and to Sälen's attractiveness among young adults.

    Young adults in rural tourism areas2016Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis examines how tourism affects conditions for young adults in rural areas. Such a study lies at the intersection of research about tourism impacts, adult transition, and rural areas. The aim is to examine how largescale tourism affects the opportunities for young adults living in rural areas; their perception of place and the perceived opportunities and obstacles that tourism provides.

    The thesis utilizes a mixed method approach. A quantitative study based on micro-data on individuals identifies the patterns and magnitudes of the mechanisms by which tourism affects population change among young adults. Interview methods are used in the case study area, Sälen, to investigate these mechanisms in depth. Finally, the rural–urban dichotomy is explored in a conceptual study that asks how tourism affects the perception of a local village as either rural or urban. Young inhabitants in rural areas are rarely considered in tourism research; therefore, the main contribution of this thesis is that it illuminates how tourism affects conditions for young adults in rural areas.

    The thesis reveals a substantial impact on the adult transition, mainly due to easier access to the labor market and a good supply of jobs during the high season. Further, the large number of people passing through creates flows of opportunities to make friends, get a job, or just meet people. All of these factors contribute to high mobility in these places, and to the perception of them as places where things happen. The high mobility in Sälen implies that fixed migrant categories (such as stayers and leavers) are largely insufficient. The tourism environment creates a space that is always under construction and continually producing new social relations mainly perceived as opportunities. Conceptualizing this as a modern rurality is a way to move beyond the often implicit notions of urban as modern and rural as traditional.

    Young adults’ perceptions of and affective bonds to a rural tourism community2016In: Fennia, ISSN 0015-0010, Vol. 194, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Many rural areas, in Sweden and worldwide, experience population decline where the young leave for education and work in urban areas. Employment has declined in several rural industries, such as agriculture, forestry, and fishing, while growing in other industries are often located in urban areas. Politicians and organizations have put much hope in tourism as a tool of rural development, but can tourism help reverse the rural out-migration trend among young adults? This paper explores how tourism affects young inhabitants’ perceptions of and affective bonds to a rural area in Sweden, the ski resort of Sälen. Students from the 1993–1995 elementary school graduating classes were interviewed about their migration history, childhood, and view of and ties to Sälen. The respondents experience that tourism contributes to a more vital community incorporating influences from elsewhere, but without eliminating the positive aspects of rural life. The regular flow of people – tourists, seasonal workers, and entrepreneurs – passing through Sälen presents opportunities to extend one’s social network that are widely appreciated by respondents. The high in and out mobility constitutes a key part of Sälen’s character. Contributions from tourism – such as employment, entertainment, leisure, and opportunities to forge new social relationships – are available during the adult transition, the life phase when rural areas are often perceived as least attractive. Even though out-migration occurs in Sälen, and some respondents still find Sälen too small, tourism has clearly increased the available opportunities and contributed significantly to making Sälen more attractive to young adults.

    Young adult’s relation to places with a dominating tourism industry2010In: Nordic Rural Futures: pressures and possibilities, Tammsvik, Uppsala, 2010Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Rural areas in Sweden have during the past decades experienced a decline in both job opportunities and population. This decline is mainly a consequence of the restructuring in nature based industries that during the 20th century dominated the economy in rural Sweden. For many rural areas tourism has been seen as possible solution to create new jobs and a more positive development. In this paper the focus will be on local communities with a dominating tourism industry and more specifically how the tourism industry in these areas affects young people’s relation to the place. There are several reasons to study young people in these areas. They are the largest group that moves out from rural areas. They also represent a large proportion of the workforce in the tourism industry. Many areas with a dominating tourism industry can, at least during peak season, offer a higher level of service provision and supply of entertainment than other rural areas without a dominating tourism industry. In some aspects these rural tourism areas includes young lifestyles, which previous youth research has revealed is otherwise strongly connected to urban places. The aim of this paper is to examine how tourism influences the relation to the place for young people. The focus will be on a number of themes including how young people experience the connections to young lifestyles in these kinds of places, the importance and effects of seasonality in these places’ identity and how young inhabitants, workers and tourists experience the place’s attractiveness. Interviews will be conducted with young inhabitants, seasonal workers and tourists that return in a regular basis in the community of Sälen, which is one of the biggest ski resorts in Sweden. An individual can belong to more than one of these categories at once. The study will contribute to a broader understanding of how young people’s relation to the place in rural areas is affected by a dominating tourism industry. This knowledge is important to further understand the development of these places not only as tourism destinations but also as places to live.

    Tourism’s localised population effect in the rural areas of Sweden2018In: Scandinavian Journal of Hospitality and Tourism, ISSN 1502-2250, E-ISSN 1502-2269, no 1, p. 39-55Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines how population change among young adults in rural areas is affected when tourism is the dominant industry. The relation between tourism and population change is often implicitly assumed but has not been well examined on a broader societal level. Existing studies have indicated that the effect of tourism on population change is limited in geographical range, and therefore a fine geographical resolution is useful. This analysis is based on yearly information on each individual who resided in Sweden in any year between 1990 and 2010, with 100-metre grid cells as the finest geographical resolution. Since young adults constitute a large part of all migration that takes place, they are the focus of this study. The findings show that the net population change among young adults is clearly more positive in tourism-dominated areas (TDAs) than in non-TDAs, and this becomes more significant the more remote the areas. Further, there is a better gender balance and a younger population in TDAs. Stayers and return migrants can partly explain the positive population change in TDAs, but as shown in previous research, there is a higher turnover of population in TDAs, and in-migration seems to be the key to positive population change.

    The (un)importance of the closure of village shops to rural migration patterns2011In: International Review of Retail Distribution & Consumer Research, ISSN 0959-3969, E-ISSN 1466-4402, Vol. 21, no 2, p. 129-143Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates the importance of local service provision for the survival of rural areas. EU Rural Development Policy includes support to village shops as a means to sustain population. Shop closing is assumed to negatively affect migration to and from the area served. We analyse quantitative data on all Swedish village shops and the migration patterns in their market areas before and after shop closure. No significant effect of shop closure on either in- or out-migration can be established, regardless of whether larger or smaller market areas are employed or whether migrants with more urban shopping habits (i.e. commuters and families with children) are excluded. Complementary interviews in three villages where the last shop has closed verify the results.

    Unga vuxna i Dalarna 2008: En regional kartläggning av unga vuxnas livsvillkor2008Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Unga vuxna är en mycket viktig men också sårbar grupp. Unga representerar på ett mycket påtagligt sätt framtiden, samtidigt som det faktum att de ännu inte hunnit etablera sig fullt ut i samhället gör dem särskilt utsatta. Flera nationella undersökningar visar att åldersgruppen 19-25 år upplevt försämringar under senare tid, bland annat i form av ökad psykisk ohälsa och försämrad ekonomi. Mest utsatta vad gäller ökad psykisk ohälsa och stress är unga kvinnor. Unga kvinnor uttrycker också i högre grad än unga män en känsla av otrygghet i offentliga miljöer, och då i synnerhet kvällstid. Kön är dock inte den enda faktor som bidrar till att skapa skillnader mellan olika kategorier av unga. Social bakgrund, etnicitet, personliga förutsättningar och tidigare erfarenheter bidrar på olika sätt till att forma unga människors möte med arbetsmarknaden och steget in i vuxenlivet. Den fysiska plats där man bor påverkar också i stor utsträckning hur ens sociala parametrar kommer att samspela med samhället. Vi vet att gruppen unga vuxna lever under andra villkor än för bara ett par decennier sedan. Kunskap har dock saknats om hur det ser ut i Dalarna. För att kunna stärka unga vuxnas position och ta vara på dem som den resurs de är för regionens utveckling behöver vi veta mera. Under 2006 tog Dalarnas forskningsråd initiativ till att samla en rad organisationer med särskilt intresse för gruppen unga vuxna. En arbetsgrupp bildades och ett samtal om unga vuxnas förändrade livsvillkor inleddes. Diskussionerna mynnade ut i ett beslut att låta göra en postenkät för att kartlägga unga vuxnas livsvillkor i Dalarna. Under hösten 2007 skickades enkäter ut till 3000 slumpmässigt utvalda 19–25-åringar i Dalarna; omkring 200 i var och en av Dalarnas 15 kommuner. Det är resultatet av den kartläggningen som presenteras i den här rapporten.

    När lanthandeln stänger: En studie av lanthandelns betydelse för flyttning in och ut och för människorna i byn2009Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    In Sweden the number of rural food shops has decreased for more than 50 years. Often the closing of a village shop is supposed to affect the migration patterns in the area it has been serving. However, according to this study, neither in- nor out-migration in the area affected by the closing is affected. The deficits of migration usual in those areas are established at least 10-12 years before the closing year. Thus, the typical closing takes place subsequent to a long term population decline. On the other hand, localities hosting a shop that survived during the study period 1990-2004 have a bigger total population and show tendencies towards decreasing deficit of migration at any potential closing year. These statistical results are supported by interviews carried out in three villages where the last shop has closed. They indicate that the shop has already lost its importance as supplier when it closes. By then the village shop is primarily used as complement to nearby towns or shopping centres. Each of the two studies accounted for here point at a relative un-importance of the village shop as a service point at the closing time. However, as it often offer the last public space in the village the village shop serves a key function as a meeting point for some households. When the shop has closed, the village holds private homes only. That is a situation increasing loneliness to some inhabitants.
