    Spatial Lifestyle Clusters and Access to the City: Evidence from the Stockholm Region2022Ingår i: Sustainability, E-ISSN 2071-1050, Vol. 14, nr 21, s. 14261-, artikel-id 14261Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyses the distribution of social infrastructure (accessibility to services and job opportunities) in a perspective of spatial lifestyle stratification in the Stockholm region. The study is based on a questionnaire completed by 1160 respondents, capturing individual data on attitudes, lifestyles and demography, and urban morphological qualities developed from high resolution register data. The spatial social stratification is based on a spatial cluster analysis on six lifestyles: highly success-oriented; success-oriented with high work ethics; conscious young and elder; people with weak motivations; designers; and middle-class bourgeois. They are spatially distributed in eight overlapping spatial clusters, namely: highly success-oriented and socially mixed central inner city; designers' inner suburbia; socially mixed inner suburbia; middle-class bourgeois suburbia; highly success-oriented suburbia; conscious young-elder suburbia; socially mixed exurbia; and socially mixed rurality. It turns out that people characterized by weak motivation lifestyle (low income, low education level, not success oriented, etc.) are the most negatively affected lifestyle cluster concerning accessibility to jobs and service. A total of 45% of the 'weak motivation lifestyle' respondents reside in 'socially mixed exurbia' and 'socially mixed rurality'. They experience less than 20% of social infrastructure compared to, in this respect, the most privileged spatial lifestyle cluster, the 'highly success-oriented and socially mixed central inner city' cluster. Still, surprisingly, this 'weak motivation' lifestyle is also concentrated in the 'socially mixed inner suburbia' cluster. One reason for this dual spatial concentration might be the Swedish rental policy, linked to residential use-values and a queuing system, instead of exchange values. This policy allows for a complex spatial social stratification influenced by a range of factors (lifestyle and attitudes among others), and not merely income.

    Urban morphology, lifestyles and work-related travel behaviour: Evidence from the Stockholm region2022Ingår i: Transportation Research Interdisciplinary Perspectives, ISSN 2590-1982, Vol. 16, artikel-id 100706Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The possibility of attaining environmental and social goals through urban and regional planning has long been the subject of research and debate. The current research investigates the precise relations between urban morphology, lifestyles, social-psychological aspects and work-related travel behaviour in terms of travel distance and travel mode. The study area is the Stockholm region. Travel distance and mode were linked to explanatory variables by linear and multinomial regression methods. Results from this study in the form of marginal effects show that urban morphology and demographics have a substantial influence on travel behaviour. However, lifestyles, attitudes and ideologies have significant influence as well. Travel distance is foremost influenced by attitude to travel distance and occupation. Travel mode is foremost influenced by distance to public transport facility and gender. Urban morphology, a designer lifestyle and ideological concerns regarding ecology matter as well. Thus, sustainable travel behaviours can be promoted by spatial planning. As other factors – attitudes, lifestyles and ideologies – also have a substantial influence, the possibilities and limitations of planning to contribute to a sustainable society should be further debated and if possible – clarified.

    Human capital sorting: The "when" and "who" of the sorting of educated workers to urban regions2018Ingår i: Journal of regional science, ISSN 0022-4146, E-ISSN 1467-9787, Vol. 58, nr 3, s. 581-610Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The sorting of high-ability workers is often advanced as one source of spatial disparities in economic outcomes. There are still few papers that analyze when human capital sorting occurs and whom it involves. Using data on 16 cohorts of university graduates in Sweden, we demonstrate significant sorting to urban regions on high school grades and education levels of parents, i.e., two attributes typically associated with latent abilities that are valued in the labor market. A large part of this sorting has already occurred in deciding where to study, because the top universities in Sweden are predominantly located in urban regions. The largest part of directed sorting on ability indicators occurs in the decision of where to study. Even after controlling for sorting prior to labor market entry, the best and brightest are still more likely to start working in urban regions. However, this effect appears to be driven by Sweden's main metropolitan region, Stockholm. We find no influence of our ability indicators on the probability of starting to work in urban regions after graduation when Stockholm is excluded. Studies of human capital sorting need to account for selection processes to and from universities, because neglecting mobility prior to labor market entry is likely to lead to an underestimation of the extent of the sorting to urban regions.

    Investigating the Ability to Identify New Constructions in Urban Areas Using Images from Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, Google Earth, and Sentinel-22022Ingår i: Remote Sensing, E-ISSN 2072-4292, Vol. 14, nr 13, artikel-id 3227Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    One of the main problems in developing countries is unplanned urban growth and land use change. Timely identification of new constructions can be a good solution to mitigate some environmental and social problems. This study examined the possibility of identifying new constructions in urban areas using images from unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), Google Earth and Sentinel-2. The accuracy of the land cover map obtained using these images was investigated using pixel-based processing methods (maximum likelihood, minimum distance, Mahalanobis, spectral angle mapping (SAM)) and object-based methods (Bayes, support vector machine (SVM), K-nearest-neighbor (KNN), decision tree, random forest). The use of DSM to increase the accuracy of classification of UAV images and the use of NDVI to identify vegetation in Sentinel-2 images were also investigated. The object-based KNN method was found to have the greatest accuracy in classifying UAV images (kappa coefficient = 0.93), and the use of DSM increased the classification accuracy by 4%. Evaluations of the accuracy of Google Earth images showed that KNN was also the best method for preparing a land cover map using these images (kappa coefficient = 0.83). The KNN and SVM methods showed the highest accuracy in preparing land cover maps using Sentinel-2 images (kappa coefficient = 0.87 and 0.85, respectively). The accuracy of classification was not increased when using NDVI due to the small percentage of vegetation cover in the study area. On examining the advantages and disadvantages of the different methods, a novel method for identifying new rural constructions was devised. This method uses only one UAV imaging per year to determine the exact position of urban areas with no constructions and then examines spectral changes in related Sentinel-2 pixels that might indicate new constructions in these areas. On-site observations confirmed the accuracy of this method.

    Post-apartheid ecologies in the City of Cape Town: An examination of plant functional traits in relation to urban gradients2020Ingår i: Landscape and Urban Planning, ISSN 0169-2046, E-ISSN 1872-6062, Vol. 193, s. 1-10, artikel-id 103662Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this study we explore species richness and traits across two urban gradients in the City of Cape Town. The first is the natural-urban boundary and the second is a socio-economic gradient informed by historical race-based apartheid planning. Plant species and cover were recorded in 156 plots sampled from conservation areas, private gardens, and public open green space. The socio-economic gradient transitioned from wealthier, predominantly white neighbourhoods to poorer, pre- dominantly black neighbourhoods. The socio-economic gradient was selected to fall within one original vegetation type to ensure a consistent biophysical template. There is a marked shift between the natural and urban plant communities in the City of Cape Town, with little structural affinity. Urban landscapes are dominated by grass, with low diversity compared to natural counterparts. A significant ecological gradient of reduced biodiversity, traits, and in turn functionality, was found across the socio-economic gradient. Wealthier communities benefit from more private green space, more public green space, and a greater plant diversity. Poorer communities have limited green space on all fronts, and lower plant and trait diversity. Plant communities with limited diversity are less resilient and if exposed to environmental perturbation would lose species, and associated ecosystem services faster than a species rich community. These species-poor plant communities mirror historical apartheid planning that is resistant to change. Based on how biodiversity, functionality, and associated ecosystem services and ecosystem stability are linked, the results of this study suggests how significant environmental injustice persists in the City of Cape Town.

    From "All for some" to "Some for all"?: A historical geography of pro-poor water provision in Kampala2013Ingår i: Journal of Eastern African Studies, ISSN 1753-1055, E-ISSN 1753-1063, Vol. 7, nr 1, s. 40-57Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the historical mechanisms and geographical factors that have formed the current structure of urban water provision in Kampala, the capital of Uganda. The formation of the urban geography of Kampala dates back to the early colonial period. The high- and middle-income earners have settled on the hills while the poorest part of the population lives in the low-lying areas, dispersed as pockets of unplanned and informal settlements. Public services are underdeveloped in these informal pockets. The government has pledged to improve services for the poor and this article analyses whether the efforts made are likely to lead to a lasting change, seen in a longer time perspective. The public water supply in Kampala has ever since its opening in 1930 focused on the middle- and high-income groups while poor people have been marginalised. Water provision to low-income groups has continued to rely on standpipes since the colonial period. There has also been organisational continuity, with a single centralised organisation in charge of urban water supply in all larger towns. Institutional changes, such as the new connection policy from 2004, have perpetuated the emphasis on middle- and high-income groups. This article argues that the traditional focus on private connections is creating a barrier for expansion of services in informal areas. Pre-paid water distribution, which was tried already in the 1920s, has in recent years seen a revival. This technology offers an important avenue for rectifying inequalities of public services that has been reproduced since the colonial period.

    Is there an indigenous knowledge in the urban North?: Re/inventing local knowledge and communities in the struggles overgarbage and incinerators in Campania, Italy2014Ingår i: Estudos de Sociologia, ISSN 1415-000X, Vol. 1, nr 20Artikel i tidskrift (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper deals with the narratives about environmental struggles over garbage facilities in Campania, Italy, a region which, in the last decades, has become the worldwide icon of the failure in the management of its own metabolism. In particular I analyze the narratives about the activists involved in the struggles and their creative interaction with scientific knowledge. My thesis is that ecological conflicts--at least in this specific case--have been producers of communities and knowledges. Instead of reinforcing the narrative about “natural” communities living in a space of radically otherness and oppressed by global villains, I would like to explore the interstitial South, mixed with the North and its science and contradictions. Using a collection of interviews and some grassroots documentaries about the crisis and the mobilization, I analyze the rising of a collective knowledge and the making of communities through the very experience of resistance to the governmentality plan of waste disposal.

    Den urbana integrationen av industriområden i Morges, Schweiz.: Utveckling och tillämpning av "best practices" i ett planeringssammanhang.2017Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Morges (Schweiz) växer i en situation av markbrist. Industriområden blir strategiska förtätningslägen, vilket hotar näringslivets förutsättningar på lång sikt. Detta examensarbete undersöker under vilka villkor industriområden i Morges kan integreras i funktionsblandad stadsmiljö utan att äventyra näringslivets förutsättningar. Fallstudier från Bern, Haag, Genève och Bryssel används som ”best practices” för att genomföra analysen. Analysen visar att hanteringen av störningar och logistik samt ett stort offentligt ingripande är nyckelfaktorer för att tillgodose näringslivets utveckling i ett funktionsblandat område. ”Best practices” visar sig kunna vara effektiva om de används som stöd i beslutsfattande och som inspirationskälla.

    The impact of offshoring on technical change: Evidence from Swedish manufacturing firms2022Ingår i: Review of International Economics, ISSN 0965-7576, E-ISSN 1467-9396, Vol. 30, nr 3, s. 796-818Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the link between offshoring and technical change measured by patent and total factor productivity in order to sort out the causality. It applies instrumental variable and matching approaches on a panel of more than 7000 Swedish manufacturing firms over the period 2001–2014, and identify offshoring-related intermediate imports by the United Nations Broad Economic Categories system. Accounting for self-selection and reverse causality, no impact of offshoring on TFP is found and only weak effect on patenting.

    Contaminant, Commodity and Fuel: A Multi‐sited Study of Waste's roles in Urban Transformations from Italy to Austria2020Ingår i: International Journal of Urban and Regional Research, ISSN 0309-1317, E-ISSN 1468-2427, Vol. 44, nr 1, s. 90-107Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article traces the flow of municipal solid waste from southern Italy through a waste‐to‐energy facility and district heating system in Austria, examining the roles that waste's transformation from contaminant to commodity to fuel plays in interconnected, distributed, and contested urbanization processes. It contends that, while metabolic circulation hides socioecological costs in one place to facilitate valorization in another, specific spatial configurations emerge through territorialization—of waste economies, in this case—providing the spatial base to realize metabolic flows and to anchor political narratives. A decisive effect is that certain patterns of urbanization become locked‐in, impeding alternative metabolic transitions and spatial configurations. Attending to the coproduction of three sites—Naples, Italy; Zwentendorf, Austria; and St Pölten, Austria—through the circulation and transformation of waste and energy the article provides an empirical multi‐sited case study of a political ecology of urbanization.

    More than flowers!: On the transformative practice of commoning urban gardens2023Doktorsavhandling, sammanläggning (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Urban stadsodling är en spirande praxis som i allt större utsträckning äger rum i stadskärnor i världen. I denna avhandling definierar jag urbana trädgårdar som allmänningar som uppstår genom kollektiva sociala praktiker som manifesterar sig rumsligt. Jag bygger på den senaste tidens vändning i commons-teori som flyttar fokus på commons, och inte, som i tidigare commons-forskning, på commons som struktur. Med utgångspunkt i fallet med stadsträdgårdsinitiativ i Stockholms stad, Sverige, undersöker jag hur gemensamma stadsträdgårdar förvandlar commoners (deras handlingskraft, subjektivitet, identitet) och vice versa, deras strukturella miljö. Ontologiskt använder jag ett kritiskt-realistiskt och socialteoretiskt perspektiv som innebär att jag erkänner a priori existensen av strukturer och agency och deras relationella betingning av varandra relationellt. Detta innebär att jag (i) tittar på hur rumsliga, samhälleliga och tidsmässiga strukturer påverkar agenter, såsom invånare som vill ägna sig åt urban trädgård, (ii) hur dessa stadsodlare påverkar sin strukturella miljö genom utövandet av urban stadsodling, (iii) samt hur deras agens är betingad av praktiken.

    Jag använder mig av en kvalitativ metod med blandade metoder, bestående av intervjuer, enkät, observationer, deltagande spridning och poetisk undersökning och upptäcker att en hög tillgänglighet till gröna offentliga utrymmen i Stockholms stad, kommunal politik till förmån för urban trädgårdsskötsel och en rik historisk kultur av föreningslivet i Sverige ger ett stödjande sammanhang för urban trädgårdsskötsel. Jag finner att gemensamma trädgårdar i offentliga utrymmen för samman människor och bygger kollektiva relationer trots ett sammanhang av nyliberal individualisering. Den frigör individer genom att omorganisera förvaltningen av stadsrum, och förändrar hur Stockholm city urbaniserar – det vill säga på ett kollektivt och bruksvärdebaserat sätt. Bland dem som deltar i stadsträdgårdsskötsel förblir vissa grundade i ett behovsuppfyllelse ("Jag vill odla för att vara mer i naturen"), medan andra förändras genom engagemanget att vara en del av en stadsträdgård, blir politiska och kollektiva subjektiviteter med en social identitet som överlappar med deras personliga identitet. Detta visar att strukturer betingar människor på olika sätt och inte deterministiskt påverkar agency på samma sätt för alla. Ändå förblir många helt utestängda från urban stadsodling, såsom people of colour, vilket indikerar att urban stadsodling, även om det kan vara transformerande för dem som deltar, är reproduktivt av strukturer av vithet i urbana offentliga rum. Samtidigt förvandlas historiska strukturer för rationell maskulinitet i offentliga rum. På bekostnad av kvinnliga stadsodlares obetalda sociala reproduktiva arbete, som utgör majoriteten av stadsodlarna, förvandlas offentliga grönområden till utrymmen för omsorg och gemenskap.

    Jag drar slutsatsen att urban stadsodling förtjänar en kritisk analys av dess immanenta motsägelser för att skydda mot oönskad och oavsiktlig reproduktion av orättvisor och för att främja praktiker som frigör och stärker människor.

    The reproductive fix: urban gardening and gendered relations of social reproduction under patriarchal capitalist urbanisationManuskript (preprint) (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    In the City of Stockholm, for more than a decade, engaged women transform public green spaces collectively into commoned urban gardens, based on affective relations and care. Drawing on Sylvia Federici’s work on the role of oppression and marginalisation of female subjects and the destruction of the commons, I discuss, in this paper, how collective forms of urban gardening condition current processes of urbanisation, and, how patriarchal capitalist urbanisation conditions urban gardening as collective practice of social reproduction. Based on the case of a greening city that draws on the free labour of women, and by making use of the feminist method of poetic inquiry, I contribute to the debate on the gendered and spatial forms of urbanisation through a dialectical analysis of the relation between public forms of social reproduction and urbanisation. I argue that urban gardening can be understood as a ‘reproductive fix’ of capitalist urbanisation that continues to exploit subjects of social reproduction – in an invisible manner.

    Preparing the grounds for emancipation. Explaining commoning as an emancipatory mechanism through dialectical social theory2022Ingår i: Environment and Planning E: Nature and Space, ISSN 2514-8486, E-ISSN 2514-8494 , s. 1-20Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    While there is evidence that commons have the potential to counteract socio-spatial injustices unleashed by neoliberal and capitalist forms of urbanisation, less is known about how commons lead to emancipatory change. Anchored in dialectical social theory, this article explains commoning as a mechanism through which people reproduce/transform their structural context and agency, arguing that the potential for emancipation through commoning lies in the commoners’ ability to induce processes of structural/agential transformation. Empirically grounded in interviews with urban community gardeners in the City of Stockholm, Sweden, we show that collective gardening conceptualised as practice of commoning contributes to structural change in that female volunteer labour collectivises the mandate over municipally managed public space, transforming socio-spatial relations. Yet, garden commoning proves to reproduce structural whiteness and middle-class agency in public space, fails to establish autonomy from waged-labour relations, and is unable to abolish the separation from the sources of reproduction and subsistence.

    Guidebooks are a part of a branch that is driven by market decisions as well as more unpredictable mental and cultural constructs. One of them is a geography of tourism, to which the guidebooks contribute by affecting both choices of routes and destinations, but also by mediating many types of spatial configurations with relevance for this imagined geography and the decisions it leads to. To describe and understand better how guidebooks work regarding these processes is, as this article could give the impression of, not solely a historical task, since these kinds of books in rather traditional formats and types still fill up substantial parts of the shelves in the bookstores of today.

    Geographical exploration via the environmental humanities: Decolonising approaches to space2022Ingår i: Rethinking Geographical Explorations in Extreme Environments: From the Arctic to the Mountaintops, Informa UK Limited , 2022, s. 157-176Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    From 1880 to 1964, many expeditions crossed seas and borders and climbed the highest mountains of the world, generating spaces which varied in accordance with the purpose of the journey and the interests of the explorers. This vast array of spatial re-productions is the realm of geography. Building upon the etymology of geo- and graphein (earth writing), this contribution analyses landscapes as products of geography by adopting emerging approaches in the environmental humanities (EH). Combining environment and humanities entails a mutual transformation: on the one hand, we recognise a landscape as constituted by stories other than materiality; on the other hand, the text - the object of interest par excellence in the humanities - involves a corporeal subject, not only a written or oral entity. If we deem the geography of a place the material translation of practices, discourses, and representations, EH offers the interpretative space and analytical tools to read (and re-write) the complex text of landscape. Given that power relations shape cultural and historical aspects of representations, which is to say geography, reassessments of geographical texts through EH can take on the status of a decolonising practice.

    Toward a method for assessing the energy impacts of telecommuting based on time-use data2022Ingår i: Travel Behaviour & Society, ISSN 2214-367X, E-ISSN 2214-3688, Vol. 27, s. 107-116Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Most telecommuting (TC) studies focus on travel impacts and do not consider changes in time spent on non-travel activities (e.g. 'leisure') and the energy impacts of these changes. We demonstrate a time-use approach to assess interrelations between changes in commuting time and time spent on travel and non-travel activities and associated energy impacts. Time-use data analysis shows that spending less time on commuting is associated with more time spent on 'sleep', 'leisure', 'personal, household and family care', 'private travel' and 'eating and drinking'. Substituting car commuting with 'sleep', 'eating and drinking', common 'leisure' and 'personal, household and family care' activities is likely to reduce energy requirements as these are associated with less energy requirements than car commuting. This is different for 'private travel', 'meal preparation at home', and energy-intensive or out-of-home 'leisure' activities, which are associated with relatively high energy requirements. The commute modal split is a key variable in energy impacts of TC, because transport modes differ in their energy requirements. While car commuters can realize high energy savings through TC, for people who usually bike or walk to work, direct energy savings through reduced commuting are zero. Thus, any additional energy impact due to substitute activities, increases net direct energy requirements. Future research should further investigate the relationship between TC and time spent on (non-)travel activities and the marginal energy requirements of these activities. If so, the time-use approach can become key for assessing energy impacts of TC and other applications which impact individual time allocation.

    Universell utformning i den kommunala samhällsbyggnadsprocessen: Om konsten att bygga en organisation med spelrum för reflektion, kreativitet och professionellt omdöme2022Ingår i: Jämlik livsmiljö: Universell utformning och tillgänglighet som stadsbyggnadsutmaning / [ed] Daniel Koch, Stockholm: Kungliga tekniska högskolan, 2022, s. 17-46Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Avsikten med universell utformning är att behovsägare med olika individuella krav ska göras delaktiga i samhällsstyrningen så tidigt som möjligt och genom hela förloppet via designlösningar i form av tjänster och produkter som svarar mot behoven. Syftet med den här studien är att utreda Uppsala kommuns arbete med tillgänglighetsfrågor, med särskilt fokus på universell utformning. Det handlar framför allt om att belysa universella utmaningsmöjligheter och -svårheter som kan hänföras till kommunal processtyrning med fokus på följande centrala faktorer:

    1. Begreppsprecisering
    2. Organisation
    3. Samverkan
    4. Planering
    5. Styrning 

    Studien utgår från närläsning av fjorton kommunala styrdokument som hanterar frågor om tillgänglighet och universell utformning, upprättade i Uppsala under perioden 2015–2020. Därutöver har elva tjänstepersoner i Uppsala kommun och Uppsala Funktionsrätt djupintervjuats.

    Ambitionen är inte att precisera explicita råd, kravkriterier, indikatorer, checklistor, standardiserade metoder och andra former av styrmedel. Utgångspunkten är att precisera frågor – inte genom förenklingar och generaliseringar – utan med hänsyn till komplexa förutsättningar i relation till omvärldsfaktorer som stöd för att komma närmare en förståelse för universell utformning som processdrivet angreppssätt. Därutöver innefattar studien en uppsättning öppet formulerade rekommendationer, med ambitionen att bidra med kunskap om hur universell utformning skulle kunna genomsyra den kommunala samhällsbyggnadsprocessens olika skeden.

    I studien ställs följande fråga: Hur kan man bygga en organisation med spelrum för reflektion, kreativitet och professionellt omdöme? Många organisationer hämmar detta spelrum genom att skapa ledningssystem med regler och rutiner som har motverkande effekt. Studiens genomgående tema handlar därför om hur angreppssättet universell utformning kan tillämpas i samhällsbyggnadsprocessen som medger spelrum för den kreativa byråkraten.

    Platser i Praktiken och Social Hållbarhet: Hökarängen och andra små centrumbildningar i fokus2009Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Stadsbyggnad och samhällsplanering är som framgår av förordet inget neutralt område utan en praktik och ett kunskapsområde med stora implikationer för människors vardagsliv liksom för samhället i stort. Det handlar om att få platser att fungera bra för dem som bor, arbetar eller på annat sätt är involverade i platsen, och där i samman­hanget ’fungera’ avser hela skalan från individens möjligheter till självförverkligande, till det för staden och samhället gemensamma bästa.

    Över tid förändrar sig förutsättningarna och platser som en gång formgivits i samklang med sin tid behöver i stadsbyggnadens och samhällsplaneringens praktik omtolkas och ges nya innebörder för att kunna leva upp till den nya tidens krav, utan att för den skull ge avkall på grundläggande överenskommelser i samhällskontraktet. Platser i praktiken kommer då att handla om social hållbarhet och om vilken typ av stad vi vill ha i vilken typ av samhälle. En komponent i detta handlar om livskraften i det lokala offentliga rummet och de villkor som gäller där oavsett om detta är beläget i stadens centrum eller i något av stadens ytterområden, där mycket av stadens liv levs. Det är detta lokala offentliga rum som den här rapporten ämnar bidra till att belysa.

    Planning for eco-friendly living in diverse societies2009Ingår i: Local Environment: the International Journal of Justice and Sustainability, ISSN 1354-9839, E-ISSN 1469-6711, Vol. 14, nr 4, s. 347-363Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Swedish cities are becoming increasingly multicultural and diverse in terms of lifestylesand socioeconomic conditions. However, cultural and social diversity is seldomconsidered when planning for sustainable urban development. This paper examinesplanning for more eco-friendly living in the increasingly diverse population of a citydistrict of Stockholm. The study reveals the prevalence of a discourse in which aSwedish identity carries environmental responsibility in the form of tidiness, recyclingand familiarity with nature. It is argued that planning for urban sustainability isunderpinned by Swedish middle-class norms, indirectly entailing processes of (self-)disciplining and transforming the other (foreign and/or troublesome dwellers) intowell-behaving Swedes. A clearer definition of the environmental improvementintended, its goals and target groups is needed. Finally, an appreciation of the multipleways we can save natural resources would make urban planning policies more attunedto social and cultural diversity as well as more environmentally progressive.

    Hälsoeffekter av ett förändrat klimat – risker och åtgärder i Botkyrka kommun: Planering för en robust och klimatsäkrad dricksvattenförsörjning med vatten av god kvalitet2013Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här rapporten baseras på en klimat- och sårbarhetsanalys som identifierar de hälsoeffekter som uppkommer i och med ett förändrat klimat. Analysen pekar ut flera samhällsystem som kommer att påverkas av klimatförändringarna men som kan anpassas med hjälp av samhällsplaneringen. Utifrån klimat- och sårbarhetsanalysen har parametern dricksvatten undersökts närmare då tillgången till rent dricksvatten är grundläggande för allt mänskligt liv.

    Botkyrka kommun tar idag sitt dricksvatten från Mälaren. Forskning visar dock att Mälarens vattenkvalitet hotas av klimatförändringarna. Den pågående havsnivåhöjningen kommer i slutet av seklet leda till en ökad risk för större inbrott av saltvatten i Mälaren. Brunifieringen, en ökad halt av näringsämnen och humus i råvattnet, är ytterligare ett hot mot dricksvattenkvaliteten och kommer att öka i och med större nederbördsmängder i framtiden.

    Botkyrka har genom sina stora isälvsavlagringar bra naturliga förutsättningar för att producera grundvatten av god kvalitet, vilket är vatten som kan användas för dricksvatten, både idag och i framtiden. De stora isälvsavlagringarna bidrar också till goda förutsättningar f̈ör att framställa ballastmaterial till bygg- och anläggningsindustrin. Det innebär en målkonflikt mellan dessa olika prioriteringar, vilken har blivit synliggjord under senare år i och med den ökade kunskapen kring behovet att säkerställa en robust, kvalitetssäkrad och långsiktig lösning för kommunens och regionens dricksvattenförsörjning.

    Idag pågår grustäktsverksamhet på flera platser i kommunen, vilket innebär en negativ risk för vattenresursens funktion som dricksvatten. Vid grustäktsverksamhet forslas många lager grus bort, vilka fyller en funktion vid naturlig rening av grundvattnet. I och med det ökar riskerna för att vattnets naturliga rening kommer att påverkas negativt. En ökad risk finns även för föroreningar från verksamheten i sig, där fordon på grustäktsområdet kan leda till spill av olja och andra kemikalier.

    Kommunen arbetar för att grustäktsverksamheten ska avvecklas. I samrådsförslaget till den nya översiktsplanen har kommunen istället förslag på att exploatera dessa områden. Det kan innebära andra risker, som kan ha negativ påverkan på grundvattenkvaliteten, om dessa områden exploateras. Kommunen behöver därför se över de exploateringsförslag som finns på grustäktsområden.

    Kommunen behöver upprätta en vattenförsörjningsplan för att kunna säkerställa en robust, kvalitetssäkrad och långsiktig lösning för kommunens och regionens dricksvattenförsörjning. Med en sådan plan kan prioriterade vattenområden, för framtida dricksvattenförsörjning, identifieras och skyddas.

    SUSTAINABLE LIFESTYLES - AN EXPERIMENT IN LIVING WELL: Northern European examples of sustainable planning2012Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines the concept of sustainable lifestyles. It is concluded that the concept of sustainable lifestyles is derived from the bigger term sustainable development and that the concept sustainable lifestyles exists as an antipode to unsustainable lifestyles. Sustainable lifestyles are still a new concept within the academic field of urban planning and design and some confusion regarding the definition remains.

    Three case studies were made investigating urban planning for sustainable lifestyles. The sites were Houthaven in Amsterdam, Netherlands, Royal Seaport in Stockholm Sweden and Western Harbour in Malmö, Sweden. Urban planning for sustainable lifestyles was explicitly carried out in the Royal Seaport, in the other two cases the concept of sustainability was approached more generally but nonetheless the methods used were quite similar in all three cases.

    How people in the society of today are seen as responsible for e.g. buying ecological food, driving ecological vehicles and living a sustainable lifestyle, are analysed through the approaches of governmentality and biopower. There has been a shift from a centralised governing of sustainability implementations to a decentralised one where the individual responsibility stands in focus.

    There are different views of what a sustainable behaviour and lifestyle could incorporate. According to the technocentric approach, technical solutions to environmental problems are sufficient, but according to the ecocentric approach, behavioural changes are needed in order to obtain sustainability. This has implications for the planning of sustainable lifestyles. In some cases technical solutions are favoured in front of behavioural ones and the other way around. The two tracks of understanding leads to two different pathways of sustainability and a need to recognize and comprehend the differences are crucial in planning for sustainable lifestyles.

    Sustainable behaviour and habits relate to actions, which e.g. minimizes the use of natural resources or incorporates the switch from an unsustainable habit to a sustainable one. Sustainable behaviour is often referred to as pro-environmental behaviour and circles around consumption. There are several ways of replacing unsustainable habits with sustainable ones discussed in this study.

    Towards a Political Ecology of EU Energy Policy2018Ingår i: Advancing Energy Policy: Lessons on the integration of Social Sciences and Humanities / [ed] Chris Foulds and Rosie Robison, Palgrave Pivot, 2018, s. 163-175Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    At the root of energy policy are fundamental questions about the sort of social and environmental futures in which people want to live and how decisions over different energy pathways and energy futures are made. The interdisciplinary field of political ecology has the capacity to address such questions, while also challenging how energy policy conventionally gets done. We outline a political ecology perspective on EU energy policy that illuminates how the distribution of social power affects access to energy services, participation in energy decision-making and the allocation of energy’s environmental and social costs.

    Energy infrastructure and the fate of the nation: Introduction to special issue2018Ingår i: Energy Research & Social Science, ISSN 2214-6296, E-ISSN 2214-6326, Vol. 41, s. 1-11Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article we introduce a Special Issue of Energy Research and Social Science focused on energy infrastructure and the political economy of national development. Many countries are experiencing transformational growth in energy infrastructure, such as transmission and distribution systems; import, export and storage facilities; the development of domestic energy resources; and construction of new power generating stations based on wind, water, coal, gas and nuclear sources. Large-scale projects like these are frequently justified by appeals to grand narratives – promoting economic growth, securing energy supply, modernizing energy service provision, and transitioning to more environmentally sustainable energy systems - in which the fate of the nation is closely tied to infrastructural development. The papers in this collection present compelling empirical evidence of how claims for energy infrastructure’s national significance and/or necessity intersect with the (re)production of political and economic power. Drawing on case material from Africa, the Americas, Asia, Australia and Europe, they highlight the capacity of different energy technologies and infrastructural assemblages to shape political and economic outcomes beyond their role in storing, transporting or transforming energy. This Introduction to the Special Issue does three things. First, it characterises the scale and significance of the contemporary ‘infrastructural moment’, observing how, in many national contexts, energy policy-making remains centralised and divorced from public participation. Second, it critically differentiates existing literature on the political economy of energy infrastructure to identify five distinctive ways in which research understands the ‘political work’ infrastructure performs. Third, it introduces the papers in the Special Issue and organises them into four key themes. Overall, the Introduction affirms the importance for social science of understanding the economically and politically constitutive power of energy infrastructures. The critical reflexivity this requires is essential to moving towards energy infrastructures that are just, equitable and sustainable.

    Urban spatial dynamic modeling based on urban amenity data to inform smart city planning2023Ingår i: Anthropocene, E-ISSN 2213-3054, Vol. 42, artikel-id 100387Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    An ideal form of smart city planning would focus on the availability of urban amenities that can meet the basic needs of a resident's material life, civil connections, and humanistic spirit. Previous studies have concentrated on analyzing the spatial distribution of urban services, with less attention on their contribution as local urban amenities. In this study, we propose a spatial dynamic modeling approach based on urban amenities using social media data from Google Place API to provide locational information on potential resident interactions. We use a representative region in Europe (Stockholm County, SE) to simulate and project urban development in the region until 2050. Our circular conceptual framework of spatial information and feedback supports decision-makers in testing possible urban planning scenarios that align with the vision of a smart city. Simulation results reveal the interplay between human-land interactions on a specific spatial-temporal scale, and we analyze scenario outcomes in relation to commercial and residential land uses. Overall, our study provides a new perspective on human-social behavior-driven urban development, through a smart, spatial dynamic model as a planning support system that can enhance realism, and ultimately help realize planned development objectives in the region.

    Spatial dynamic modelling for urban scenario planning: A case study of Nanjing, China2020Ingår i: Environment and Planning B: Urban Analytics and City Science, ISSN 2399-8083, Vol. 47, nr 8, s. 1380-1396Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Although urban scenario planning is widely applied for exploring various directions of urban development, it often has high requirements on the medium of quantitative information analysis and transformation. Thus, this study establishes a method of combining scenario planning with a spatial dynamic planning support system to predict urban growth. Specifically, a scenario-based spatial dynamic modelling method is integrated with the information module of planning policy for better decision support. The integrated modelling method is applied for an actual urban land use planning case of Nanjing, an evolving city in China. The spatial forms of future urban land use are simulated under four different pre-set policy scenarios. The differences in simulated results under multi-criteria restrictions reveal the effectiveness and practical value of the integration approach. The findings of this study provide policymakers with a process-based approach to test and evaluate ‘what-if’ consequences and help stakeholders reach consensus.

    Examining new geographies of coal: Dissenting energyscapes in Colombia and Turkey2018Ingår i: Applied Energy, ISSN 0306-2619, E-ISSN 1872-9118, Vol. 224, s. 398-408Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Global energy geographies are changing, call it by will or by market forces. As coal production declines or consumption is phased out in parts of the Global North, the future of coal will likely be decided in the Global South. In this article, we explore energyscapes, as multiple and nested sites of connectivity over energy, and their relation to energy justice, environmental conflicts and social movements in new geographies of coal. By putting into question the reproduction of multiple levels of socio-environmental injustices related to coal’s extraction and consumption, we trace the emerging South-South coal links with an empirical focus on Colombia and Turkey. Coal extraction and consumption, respectively, in these geographically distant but increasingly connected countries are linked by multiscalar socio-ecological interactions and conflicts. After exploring these interactions, we examine the changing energyscapes of coal operating on different layers (the market, the physical, and the socio-environmental damages) between the two countries. Our analysis reveals that these new geographies are anchored in cross-scalar environmental injustices and democratic deficits, only sustained with top-down measures and emerging bilateral dependencies. The coming challenge for energy justice, therefore, is to link local communities' claims and democratization of energyscapes between the supply and the demand sides.

    Scenario modelling for the Divertor Tokamak Test facility2022Ingår i: NUOVO CIMENTO C-COLLOQUIA AND COMMUNICATIONS IN PHYSICS, ISSN 2037-4909, Vol. 45, nr 6, artikel-id 162Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The scenario integrated modelling is a top priority work during the design of a new tokamak, as the Divertor Tokamak Test facility (DTT) under construction at the ENEA Research Center in Frascati. The first simulations of the main baseline scenarios contributed to the optimization of the DTT project, particularly with regard to the machine size and heating systems, besides serving as reference for diagnostics design. In this paper we report the first simulations of the full power baseline scenario in the final configuration of the machine and heating mix.

    Voting with one's feet: Unraveling urban centers attraction using visiting frequency2022Ingår i: Cities, ISSN 0264-2751, E-ISSN 1873-6084, Vol. 127, s. 103773-, artikel-id 103773Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Urban and regional areas worldwide exhibit a complex and uneven distribution of activities with certain areas attracting more people during different time periods. In this study we systemically classify different parts of the urban area which are most attractive as measured by their ability to attract visitors. A weekly visiting profile is constructed for each travel demand zone and thereafter clustered to identify areas with common attraction patterns. We leverage on the availability of longitudinal individual mobility traces in the form of smart card data transactions. We apply our method to the case study of the multi-modal public trans-port system of the Stockholm urban agglomeration area. The results of our clustering based on the weekly visiting profiles reveal four distinctive types of visiting attraction based on the intensity and temporal distribution of activities performed. The results of this study can be used to inform planners and decision makers about the main activity locations of travellers and how their temporal patterns vary across the metropolitan area and the design of related policies.

    Crime and space: patterns of offences and offenders’ paths to crime portrayed by Geographic Information Systems (GIS)2008Ingår i: Kartan och Verkligheten / [ed] Thomas Lunden, Stockholm: YMER , 2008, s. 191-208Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The way spatial information has been approached by literature in crimeanalysis varies highly, following both the development of urban criminologyas a discipline (Shaw and McKay 1942, Newman 1972, Cohen andFelson 1979, Brantingham and Brantingham 1991, Sampson et al. 1997,Wikström 2003, 2004) and the diffusion of spatial technologies such asGeographic Information Systems (GIS) in human sciences (Haining1990, 2003, Anselin 1999, Fotheringham and Rogerson 2002, Chaineyand Ratcliffe 2006). In this article, I review how certain notions of spacehave been incorporated into urban criminology research using GIS.

    From ‘defensible space’ to ‘space of flows’: integrating geographical information into urban safety research and planning2011Ingår i: Proceedings of the ICE - Urban Design and Planning, ISSN 1755-0793Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of this article is to discuss the use of Geographical Information (GI) and spatial analyticalmethodologies in urban safety research and planning. Based on previous empirical examples, the article discusses advances and challenges of studying crime and perceived safety using GI and spatial analytical methodologies. Thearticles reviews the analysis of crime and perceived fear at the micro-level landscape followed by a discussion of ecological studies often searching for associations between socio-economic characteristics of small areas. The use ofGI and visualisation techniques has also been incorporated into research and planning in public participation schemes and, more recently, into new methodologies aiming at predicting human movement patterns using real-timedata. The paper also reviews some of the current challenges for spatial urban safety research and concludes with prospects on the value of this form of analysis in the near future.

    Rural–urban crime trends in international perspective2015Ingår i: Rural crime and community safety, London & New York: Routledge, 2015, s. 65-92Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter compares crime rates in Sweden with those in United States and United Kingdom. In all three countries, urban crime rates are higher than rural ones, regardless of definitions of crime types and how rural areas are conceptualized. The chapter discusses evidence about the so-called “convergence hypothesis” of urban and rural crime rates. Crime victimization disproportionately affects more urban than rural residents, regardless of crime trends, country, or differences in rural–urban contexts. Urban areas are often more criminogenic than rural areas not because they concentrate lots of people per area but because urban areas offer more opportunities for crime than rural ones do. This assumption is particularly true for property crimes. Robbery, regarded as a violent offense, seems to follow the trend for violent crimes more than the trend for property offenses. Levitt presents the percentage decline in homicide, violent crime, and property crime from 1991 to 2001 by region in the United States, urban–rural, and city size.

    Tools in the Spatial Analysis of Offenses: Evidence from Scandinavian Cities2005Ingår i: GIS for Sustainable Development / [ed] Michele Campagna, Taylor & Francis, 2005, s. 267-286Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter examines the potential of GIS in combination with spatial statisticsin an exploratory analysis of urban geography of offenses in two Scandinavian cities.The term exploratory analysis implies here the use of techniques for detection ofpatterns in data (clusters) as well as statistical modeling. Techniques such as Kmeansportioning and Kulldorff’s scan test are used to provide a simplified representationof where significant statistical concentrations of offenses occur across thecity, while regression models are applied to explain such clusters. Three clustertechniques are applied to data on pickpocketing in Copenhagen, the capital ofDenmark. This is followed by an attempt to explain patterns of vandalism usingdemographic, socioeconomic, and land use covariates in Malmö, the third largestSwedish city. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the strengths and limitationsof these techniques for local planning.

    Crime in rural Sweden2011Ingår i: Applied Geography, ISSN 0143-6228, E-ISSN 1873-7730, Vol. 31, nr 1, s. 119-135Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of this article is to assess the levels and spatial patterns of crime in rural Sweden This involves a summary of the changing levels and composition of a selected group of offences from 1996 to 2007 in two groups of rural areas (remote and accessible) in relation to urban areas Crime rates are modelled cross-sectionally as a function of the municipalities structural indicators Geographical information systems (GIS) and spatial statistics techniques are used to assess shifting patterns of concentration of thefts and violence as well as for modelling crime rates Findings show that rural areas have become more criminogenic than they were a decade ago Changes in the rates and geography were found using cluster techniques for both violence and theft. Although models of rural crime do not show any special rural dimension the predicting variables in models containing both urban and rural areas are not exactly the same as in models with rural areas only Crime is often linked to the presence of alcohol-selling premises characteristics of family structure and proportion of young male population.

    Exploring offence statistics in Stockholm City using spatial analysis tools2002Ingår i: Annals of the Association of American Geographers, ISSN 0004-5608, E-ISSN 1467-8306, Vol. 92, nr 1, s. 29-51Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of this article is to investigate changes since the early 1980s in offence patterns for residential burglary, theft of and from cars, and vandalism in Stockholm City using methods from spatial statistics. The findings of previous Swedish studies on crime patterns and the insights provided by different theories, notably one propounded by Wikstrom (1991), provide a background for this study and are briefly reviewed. The analytical elements of the article are presented in two main parts. The first consists of a brief description of methodological procedures to obtain robust estimates of small-area standardized offence ratios. Attention is pail to both the spatial framework and the method of calculating rates. Standardized offence ratios (SORs) are calculated and mapped using GIS, and the Getis-Ord statistic is used to identify areas of raised incidence. The variation in a relative risk is modeled as a function of socioeconomic variables using the linear regression model, recognizing the complications raised by the spatial nature of the data. Results suggest that while there have been no dramatic changes in the geographies of these offences in Stockholm City during the last decade, there have been some shifts both in geographical patterns and in their association with underlying socioeconomic conditions.

    Safety and sustainability in a city in transition: The case of Vilnius, Lithuania2011Ingår i: Cities, ISSN 0264-2751, E-ISSN 1873-6084, Vol. 28, nr 1, s. 83-94Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Urban experts have long recognised crime and fear of crime as dominant challenges to sustainable cities. A sustainable community is a place free from the fear of crime, where a feeling of security underpins a wider sense of place attachment and place attractiveness. In this article, we follow the recent strand of Western research and suggest a framework for assessing safety, which includes the analysis of the geography of crime, fear of crime and crime prevention. Empirical evidence is based on Vilnius, Lithuania. Findings show that whilst Vilnius' geography of crime shows patterns similar to those found in Western cities, fear of crime shows a complex pattern, playing a minor role when citizens judge their residential quality. Crime prevention incorporates top-down features as well as approaches previously adopted by Western cities. The article concludes with an assessment of the proposed framework and directions for future work.

    Comparing spatial patterns of robbery: Evidence from a Western and an Eastern European city2008Ingår i: Cities, ISSN 0264-2751, E-ISSN 1873-6084, Vol. 25, nr 4, s. 185-196Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we test hypotheses about the spatial variation in rates of robbery in West and East European cities (Cologne, Germany and Tallinn, Estonia). This comparison represents an interesting case study because Tallinn is an example of former socialist cities which have undergone a period of profound political and socio-economic change since the country's independence in the early 1990s (including EU membership). These changes are expected to have implications for the level and composition of offences as well as their geographies. Using cross-sectional datasets, we examine whether or not levels and patterns of robbery in Tallinn follow similar processes to the ones found in Cologne applying GIS (Geographical Information System) and spatial statistical techniques. Findings show that although levels of robberies (rates) are higher in Tallinn than in Cologne, their geography (ratios) follows the same overlapping components of social contexts, as social disorganization and, particularly, routine activities.

    Differential Economic Performance (DEP) in the periphery: evidence from Swedish rural areas2003Ingår i: European Journal of Spatial Development, E-ISSN 1650-9544, Vol. 7Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Understanding Differential Economic Performance (DEP) at the local andregional level is a key element in devising practical strategies and programmes forsustainable regional development in different contexts. This paper contributes to theunderstanding of the factors underlying persistent differences in DEP between rurallocalities. The basic hypothesis is that the DEP of rural areas can be explained by acombination of ‘tangible’ and ‘less tangible’ factors and the way in which these interactin specific national, regional and local contexts. Natural and human resources,infrastructure, economic structure and investments are together with institutions,networks and community values the most decisive factors that help to characterise DEPfor the Swedish case studies. Findings show that such factors not only define the differentopportunities and constraints for local development, but also illustrate how effective thelocal and regional system is in tapping into resources and opportunities and inameliorating constraints. This sheds light on the importance of taking a broaderperspective regarding policies towards regional development, making them much morefocused on contextual and environmental aspects than uni-faceted, sectoral measures. Thepaper also provides a discussion of the implications of the results for policy and gives anaccount of new research questions for future studies.

    Adapting GIS technology to the needs of local planning2000Ingår i: Environment and Planning, B: Planning and Design, ISSN 0265-8135, E-ISSN 1472-3417, Vol. 27, nr 6, s. 923-937Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Our objective in this paper is to argue for a new use of geographic information systems-GIS in local planning as an auxiliary tool for decisionmaking. We review the use of the GIS technique in earlier research studies and represent the empirical findings from using GIS in a quality-of-life study in conjunction with an urban renewal project of a residential area in Stockholm County, Sweden. Special attention is given to the potential of GIS for mapping qualitative data representing people's needs and judgments about their residential areas. We conclude with a discussion of future challenges in using GIS techniques in combination with the Internet for social analysis in renewal planning. One of the arguments proposed is that the tool can be used to promote the involvement of urban residents.

    Tracking social life and crime2012Ingår i: The urban fabric of crime and fear / [ed] Vania Ceccato, Springer Netherlands, 2012, s. 165-190Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    An individual’s decision to commit a crime is influenced, among other things, by his/her whereabouts over time and space. In this article, we suggest the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), combined with space-time budget techniques, to visualise and track individuals’ daily activities patterns. We first test several GIS-based visualisation techniques for handling spatial and temporal dimensions of activity patterns using a dataset of adolescents in Peterborough, UK. Later, we show how these spatial methods can support the creation of measures of environmental exposure that may help predict group level offending. Findings indicate that visualisation techniques are effective tools for exploratory analysis of how individuals differ in their patterns of activity across the city. Results also show that tracking groups of individuals by using measures of environmental exposure, in combination with individual characteristics and settings, can help explain differences in their levels of offending.

    Frontiers in Social-Ecological Urbanism2022Ingår i: Land, E-ISSN 2073-445X, Vol. 11, nr 6, s. 929-, artikel-id 929Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper describes a new approach in urban ecological design, referred to as social- ecological urbanism (SEU). It draws from research in resilience thinking and space syntax in the analysis of relationships between urban processes and urban form at the microlevel of cities, where social and ecological services are directly experienced by urban dwellers. The paper elaborates on three types of media for urban designers to intervene in urban systems, including urban form, institutions, and discourse, that together function as a significant enabler of urban change. The paper ends by presenting four future research frontiers with a potential to advance the field of social-ecological urbanism: (1) urban density and critical biodiversity thresholds, (2) human and non-human movement in urban space, (3) the retrofitting of urban design, and (4) reversing the trend of urban ecological illiteracy through affordance designs that connect people with nature and with each other.

    Housing Markets and Resource Sector Fluctuations: A Cross-Border Comparative Analysis2021Ingår i: Sustainability, E-ISSN 2071-1050, Vol. 13, nr 16, artikel-id 8918Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Recent research has sought to better understand resource and housing market cycles longitudinally and define clear phases in order to understand interactions between the two over time. This is a necessary step forward in housing market knowledge for this under researched area, particularly in an economically unique context. This paper expands knowledge by undertaking a comparative study of town housing markets in Queensland's coal mining Bowen Basin and Sweden's northern municipalities-specifically Gallivare and Kiruna-where a long history of iron ore mining exists. This paper analyses these housing markets using longitudinal data spanning two decades, which includes two resources cycles in two geographically disparate locations. The results indicate that the housing market in Queensland, Australia, is far more volatile than the housing market in the Swedish municipalities. The regional housing market in Sweden's municipalities tend to be less dependent on resource price and output from mines than their Australian counterparts. Part of the explanation for this is that the Swedish towns examined are less of the traditional mining town known from previous studies, and more a town with mining. Developing and improving understanding of markets over the duration of a cycle is important. Particular value is apparent in the comparison and contrasting of two separate resource regions encompassing resource reliant communities in two different countries. Importantly, the linkage of research regions through resource relationships leads to groundbreaking research which will have practical benefit to multiple economies, housing markets and for policy-makers alike.
