    Vänsterpartiet och kommunismen: En idealtypsanalys av partiets principprogram och partiledarens tal mellan 1987 och 20162017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay will address the question of the extent and the way in which the communist ideology is expressed in the left party of Sweden from 1987 until 2016. Before the 1990s, the party was called Left party communists (VPK) in order not to be connected with communism and the Soviet Union and the party had to modernize and become independent, therefore the party had to change their name to left-party (V). This Ideological development has been studied through the ideal type analysis based on the key variables found in the communist ideology and comparing it with the party programs and party leader's speech to answer the main question. It will also present what other left-wing ideologies are expressed and what significance they have had for the party's ideological alignment today.

    A Structured Review of Semi-Presidential Studies: Debates, Results, and Missing Pieces2018In: British Journal of Political Science, ISSN 0007-1234, E-ISSN 1469-2112Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study maps the general lines of semi-presidential research with regard to theory, topics and methods. It identifies research gaps and provides recommendations for future studies. The review includes a general screening of 327 publications covering the period 1970–2015, and a close reading of sixty-five selected publications. The findings suggest that the inconsistent use of regime type definitions has limited the possibilities for generalizations. The study tracks the influence of some seminal articles, as well as the recent trend of focusing on the role and powers of the president. The article calls for more studies beyond Europe, and suggests that the field would benefit from including Historical and Normative Institutionalism. Finally, it suggests the need for studies on public administration that are relevant to the functioning of semi-presidential government.

    Folkets vilja vs. mänskliga rättigheter: Implementeringen av folkliga initiativ i Schweiz2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years, the Swiss people have voted in favour of a couple of popular initiatives that are incompatible with the human rights. This development puts the government and the parliament in a problematic situation as they are responsible for the implementation of the initiatives and have to choose between the conflicting interests. Thus, the main purpose of this thesis was to examine whether such popular initiatives are implemented in a democratically legitimate way. This examination was made as a case study of those three initiatives that most manifestly have been incompatible with the human rights. The results were diverse and there did not seem to be any clear pattern in the way the popular will and the human rights were taken into account during the implementation. The conclusion is that the parliament and the government try to consider human rights, even at the expense of the popular will. However, due to the circumstances in the specific case, they sometimes consider the popular will to a greater extent, which increases the obtained level of democratic legitimacy.

    Consociational democracy in theory and practice: A comparative case study of Rwanda and Burundi on power-sharing in state-building peace-agreements2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Consociational democracy as the goal and a tool in mitigating conflict in the Third World has been frequently used during the last decades, especially in Sub-Saharan Africa. The results are ambiguous. The aim of this comparative case study is to examine the Arusha Accords of Rwanda signed August 3, 1993, and the Arusha Peace and Reconciliation Agreement for Burundi of August 28, 2000, in relation to the elements and favorable conditions of Arend Lijphart’s theory on Consociational Democracy as presented in "Democracy in Plural Societies" 1977. The study concludes that the slightly different conditions in the cases, Rwanda and Burundi, both historical and contemporary had potential effects on the diverging outcome of the cases. The major difference between the cases was, however, the different ways the agreements handled the overshadowing main cleavage of ethnicity, which according to Lijphart is crucial.

    The European Parliament and the Europe 2020 strategy: An arena for public debate or political entrepreneurship?2019In: Smart, sustainable and inclusive growth: political entrepreneurship for a prosperous Europe / [ed] Charlie Karlsson, Daniel Silander, Brigitte Pircher, Cheltenhem, UK: Edward Elgar Publishing, 2019Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyses the European Parliament in the light of agenda Europe 2020 with a specific focus on the transnational party groups. It starts with clarifying the legal and institutional framework for Europe 2020 and to what degree the European Parliament is involved in the agenda-setting stage, actual creation, decision process and implementation process. Thus, what have been the openings and possibilities for political entrepreneurship of the party groups and of individual members of Parliament? Secondly, it identifies the main issues around Europe 2020 which have been up for debate in the European Parliament. The main interest here lies in whether the conflicts concerns transnational ideological issues (like economic issues between Left and Right or between growth and sustainability) or domestic interests. Thirdly, it identifies examples of political entrepreneurship strategies among the party groups and their individual members. It is important to remember that the European party families are present in each EU-institution. Consequently, there is room for informal influence may on fellow party sympathisers in other key EU institutions like the Commission or the Council.

    Ideologisk konvergens mellan öst och väst?: De europeiska partifamiljerna 1990-20132015In: Nordisk Østforum, ISSN 0801-7220, E-ISSN 1891-1773, Vol. 29, no 2, p. 167-189Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we compare ideological positions of political parties in Eastern and Western Europe. As the Communist regimes collapsed and new democracies began to emerge in Eastern Europe, it became obvious that historical and cultural differences existed in relation to Western Europe. This was not least visible among the political parties. When the West European parties initiated contacts with potential sister parties in the East, noticeable differences were revealed in several issues. In general, the eastern parties appeared to be more nationalist, more populist and less tolerant towards minorities than their Western sister parties. The question raised in this paper is whether these differences, have faded or not during the 25-year period after 1989. In order to perform this analysis, the three largest and most influential party families are selected: the Christian Democratic EPP, the Social Democratic PES and the Liberal ALDE. Departing from election manifesto data compiled by the Comparative Manifesto Project, we have performed a time series analysis ranging from 1990 to 2013. Here, the Eastern parties are compared to their Western sister parties within each party family. Firstly, they are compared along the general left-right dimension, and secondly they are compared in specific issues, which have been conceived as delicate matter: the view on the EU, nationalism and view on multiculturalism.

    East-West convergence or divergence?: The (possible) influence of the European People’s Party on affiliated parties in Central and Eastern Europe 1990-20142018Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyses the (possible) ideological influence of Europarties on their member parties in Central and Eastern Europe. The specific focus of the study is the Christian democratic European People’s Party (EPP) and the main theoretical point of departure is the theoretical framework for Europarty cooperation, developed by Poguntke and von dem Berge. The analysis is based on elections manifesto data from 1990 to 2015. The aim is to provide an overview on possible trends of convergence (or divergence) between the Western and Eastern EPP-affiliated parties and to evaluate the extent of influence that the EPP has exerted on Christian democratic and conservative parties in Central and Eastern Europe. The analysis is based on a mean-value comparison of the West European member parties and the affiliated parties from post-communist countries when it comes to Left-Right positions and issue specific positions. Furthermore the analysis is complemented with in-depth analysis of specific cases. Finally the relevance of party size is evaluated in relation to ideological convergence and Europarty influence.
