    Ecosystem services as technology of globalization: On articulating values in urban nature2013In: Ecological Economics, ISSN 0921-8009, E-ISSN 1873-6106, Vol. 86, p. 274-284Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper demonstrates how ecosystem services can be viewed and studied as a social practice of value articulation. With this follows that when ecosystem services appear as objects of calculated value in decision-making they are already tainted by the social and cannot be viewed as merely reflecting an objective biophysical reality. Using urban case studies of place-based struggles in Stockholm and Cape Town, we demonstrate how values are relationally constructed through social practice. The same analysis is applied on ecosystem services. Of special interest is the TEEB Manual that uses a consultancy report on the economic evaluation of Cape Town's 'natural assets' to describe a step-by-step method to catalog, quantify and price certain aspects of urban nature. The Manual strives to turn the ecosystem services approach into a transportable method, capable of objectively measuring the values of urban nature everywhere, in all cities in the world. With its gesture of being universal and objective, the article suggests that the ecosystem services approach is a technology of globalization that de-historicizes and de-ecologizes debates on urbanized ecologies, effectively silencing other and often marginalized ways of knowing and valuing. The paper inscribes ecosystem services as social practice, as part of historical process, and as inherently political. A call is made for critical ethnographies of how ecosystem services and urban sustainability indicators are put into use to change local decision-making while manufacturing global expertise.

    Reconceptualizing the 'Anthropos' in the Anthropocene: Integrating the social sciences and humanities in global environmental change research2013In: Environmental Science and Policy, ISSN 1462-9011, E-ISSN 1873-6416, Vol. 28, p. 3-13Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is growing recognition that humans are faced with a critical and narrowing window of opportunity to halt or reverse some of the key indicators involved in the environmental crisis. Given human activities' scale and impact, as well as the overly narrow perspectives of environmental research's dominant natural sciences, a major effort is necessary to place the perspectives and insights of the humanities' and social sciences' perspectives and insights at the forefront. Such effort will require developing integrated approaches, projects, and institutions that truly do so. This article's goal is to help mobilize the social sciences and the humanities on the topic of sustainability transitions, but also call for a meaningful research agenda to acknowledge the profound implications of the advent of the Anthropocene epoch. We formulate the need for an innovative research agenda based on a careful consideration of the changing human condition as linked to global environmental change. The humanities and social sciences will need to change and adapt to this pressing, historic task.

    Reconfiguring environmental expertise2013In: Environmental Science and Policy, ISSN 1462-9011, E-ISSN 1873-6416, Vol. 28, p. 14-24Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the concepts 'environment' and 'expertise'. It is argued that these concepts, while having long and diverse individual histories, acquired new meaning through a process of mutual co-production which occurred largely in the period 1920-1960, thus significantly preceding the common understanding of environmentalism as a phenomenon emerging in the 1960s. It is further argued that environmental expertise is much predicated on natural science in a range of fields that were integrated into a comprehensive understanding scaling upwards from the local to the global. Quantitative analysis, observing, measuring, and monitoring rates of change of a growing set of indicators were other key features of this emerging understanding of the environmental. Yet another key aspect was the self-proclaimed ability of environmental expertise to predict rates and directions of current and, crucially, future changes of global environmental conditions, increasingly assuming that these changes were largely of human origin. In addition to thus presenting a brief history of environmental expertise the article also makes the point that the environmental was, despite changed by human action, essentially regarded as something that did not in itself belong to the human or the social and thus the implicit prerogative of the natural sciences. The article argues, on the contrary, that there is solid historical evidence to suggest that 'environment' should also, perhaps primarily, be understood as a social concept, or rather as an extension of the social into nature. As conventional environmental expertise has failed to provide the advice needed to question the driving forces behind environmental degradation and lack of sustainability it is here instead suggested that environmental expertise be fundamentally reconfigured to include the social sciences and humanities, and that concerted research efforts are directed to the understanding of the formation of environmental expertise.

    Science, geopolitics and culture in the Polar region: Norden beyond borders2013Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Throughout the twentieth century, glaciologists and geophysicists from Denmark, Norway and Sweden made important scientific contributions across the Arctic and Antarctic. This research was of acute security and policy interest during the Cold War, as knowledge of the polar regions assumed military importance. But scientists also helped make the polar regions Nordic spaces in a cultural and political sense, with scientists from Norden punching far above their weight in terms of population, geographical size or economic activity. This volume presents an image of Norden that stretches far beyond its conventional limits, covering a vast area in the North Atlantic and the Arctic Sea, as well as parts of Antarctica. Rich in resources, scarce in population, but critically important in global and regional geopolitics, these spaces were contested by major powers such as Russia, the United States, Canada and, in the Antarctic, Argentina, Australia, South Africa and others. The empirical focus on Danish, Norwegian and Swedish influence in the polar regions during the twentieth century embraces a diverse array of themes, from the role of science in policy and diplomacy to the tensions between nationalism and internationalism, with clear relevance to the important role science plays in contemporary discussions about Nordic engagement with the polar regions.

    The Future of Nature: Documents of Global Change2013Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This anthology provides an historical overview of the scientific ideas behind environmental prediction and how, as predictions about environmental change have been taken more seriously and widely, they have affected politics, policy, and public perception. Through an array of texts and commentaries that examine the themes of progress, population, environment, biodiversity and sustainability from a global perspective, it explores the meaning of the future in the twenty-first century. Providing access and reference points to the origins and development of key disciplines and methods, it will encourage policy makers, professionals, and students to reflect on the roots of their own theories and practices.

    A reluctant Arctic citizen?: On Sweden's role in Arctic science and geopolitics in the 20th century and heroptions for the 21st2012Other (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Sweden had a very active role in the early scientific exploration of the European Arctic up until WorldWar I and remained an active industrial stakeholder in Spitsbergen until around 1930. From then on Sweden went into a long period of comparatively low activity in the Arctic, but with interesting exceptions. When official Swedish interest was renewed in the 1980s science was foregrounded and other policy areas kept on a low profile. Today Sweden holds the chairmanship of the Arctic Council and presented in May 2011 for the first time an official Arctic policy. How should we interpret Sweden's Arctic politics? Is the low profile likely to change, and if so -- what policy options are open?

    Arctic Visions: Technology, Architecture, and Indigenous Voices in the Discourse of Arctic Futures2012Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Today’s discussion on the Arctic is to a large extent driven by speculations on abright future caused byclimate change leading toeconomically viable mineral prospecting in high latitudes through the opening of the Northwest Passage to shipping, increased tourism, fossil fuel extraction, and other prosperous activities --albeit countered by proposed severe impacts on environment and local cultures. Some of this ‘geographic optimism’ can be contextualized into a long tradition of optimistic visions of development of the Arctic, envisioning a bright, and often also drastically changed Arctic with modern infrastructure, large populations, and even a warmer(‘improved’) climate.The epitomes of these visions might be those of Stefansson (Our Northward Course of Empire, 1922) and Smolka (1938) but they have continued to echo over many generations, with climate change acting as the catalyst for renewed debate.In this paper I shall analyze deeper this tradition of Arctic visions. My focus will be on infrastructure, architecture, and technology as they appear mostly in written 20th century sources, i.e. features which have been little emphasized in previous research on Arctic development. A central idea in the paper is that the Arctic has been often used as an arena for testing and forecasting advanced modern technologies and building styles. This would be seen in architectural designs by e.g. Frei Otto and Ralph Erskine. Visionary thinkers and explorers such as Stefansson, Smolka, or Byrd provide in their writings many examples of ideas about a ‘livable’ Arctic which was on its way to become realized through southern colonization and the increased use of technology for acclimatization and long periods of indoor living. Arctic technology could also be used as a demonstration of advanced science and skills of a nation, as in the case of Soviet Arctic icebreakers since the 1920’s and scientific stations on ice floes since the 1930’s, later US submarines in the Cold War.A key aspect of the paper is to look for environmental concern in Arctic visions. When did such concern appear, by whom, with what arguments? Stefansson for example was hardly inhibited by concern about negative effects of bustling harbours, airports, and oilfields. Another key aspect is to look for the roles of the indigenous peoples, were there voices present in the futuristic discourse? What was the position that they would occupy in a future modernized Arctic? Clearly Social Darwinist notions of imminent extinction of the ‘lower races’ were rapidly waning in the 20th century, but even if individuals and peoples survived over the long term – what position did they receive in Southern future visions? And to what extent were their own voices heard in the construction of images of the future Arctic? In Sweden and Norway political organization of Sami between the world wars promoted Arctic visions. Were there similar indigenous Arctic visionaries in other countries?

    Developing an Integrated History and future of People on Earth (IHOPE)2012In: Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability, ISSN 1877-3435, E-ISSN 1877-3443, Vol. 4, no 1, p. 106-114Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Integrated History and future of People on Earth (IHOPE) initiative is a global network of researchers and research projects with its International Program Office (IPO) now based at the Stockholm Resilience Center (SRC), Uppsala University, Arizona State University, Portland State University, and the Australian National University. Research linked to IHOPE demonstrates that Earth system changes in the past have been strongly associated with changes in the coupled human-environment system. IHOPE supports integrating knowledge and resources from the biophysical and the social sciences and the humanities to address analytical and interpretive issues associated with coupled human-earth system dynamics. This integration of human history and Earth system history is a timely and important task. Until recently, however, there have been few attempts at such integration. IHOPE will create frameworks that can be used to help achieve this integration. The overarching goal is to produce a rich understanding of the relationships between environmental and human processes over the past millennia. HOPE recognizes that one major challenge for reaching this goal is developing 'workable' terminology that can be accepted by scholars of all disciplines. The specific objectives for IHOPE are to identify slow and rapidly moving features of complex social-ecological systems, on local to continental spatial scales, which induce resilience, stress, or collapse in linked systems of humans in nature. These objectives will be reached by exploring innovative ways of conducting interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary science, including theory, case studies, and integrated modeling. Examples of projects underway to implement this initiative are briefly discussed.
