  • Les enjeux socio-culturels de la lutte contre l’épidémie d’Ebola dans la Préfecture de Forécariah en Guinée Conakry
  • 2017
  • Ingår i: LONNIYA - Revue scientifique Université Jean Lorougnon Guédé de Daloa. - 2434-561X. ; 1:1, s. 245-270
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Entre décembre 2013 et avril 2016, l’épidémie de la maladie du virus Ebola a généré plus de 28 000 cas et plus de 11 000 décès en Guinée, au Libéria et en Sierra Leone. Pour faire face à cette épidémie, la communauté internationale, l’Organisation Mondiale de la Santé (OMS) et d’autres organisations internationales comme Médecins sans Frontières et les pouvoirs publics, la société civile et les communautés locales se sont mobilisés. Si des résultats positifs de cette mobilisation ont été enregistrés dans les trois pays, il est bon de noter que les interventions des acteurs se sont heurté à des résistances de la part des communautés qui dénient le virus d’Ebola et rejettent certaines mesures sanitaires qu’elles trouvent attentatoire à leurs cultures. A partir d’une étude socio-anthropologique menée sur les causes de la persistance de l’épidémie de la Maladie à Virus Ebola (MVE) dans la préfecture de Forécariah en Guinée maritime, notre contribution analyse les facteurs socio-culturels explicatifs de la réticence et/ou résistance de certaines populations face aux activités de riposte contre Ebola en Guinée.

  • The semantic field of risk
  • 2017
  • Ingår i: Safety Science. - 0925-7535. ; 92
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • A recurring theoretical focus in risk and safety research is the analysis of certain concepts of special interest (e.g. the concepts of risk, safety, and hazard) and how they are related. Together, related concepts form networks sometimes referred to as ‘semantic fields’. In this paper, the semantic field of risk is identified and analysed. Based on dictionaries, thesauri, and other lexicological resources, 244 words related to the concept of risk are identified. These words are classified into 25 specific categories based on their type of semantic relationship to the risk concept. Based on this semantic field analysis, three implications for risk and safety research are discussed: (i) the merit of an extensive and general overview of a conceptual field (previously subject to only partial and scattered treatment) for future analysis, (ii) methodological consequences for the study of social processes addressing risk and safety issues, and (iii) the opportunity for cross-cultural comparison.

  • Experts’ understandings of drinking water risk management in a climate change scenario
  • 2017
  • Ingår i: Climate Risk Management. - 2212-0963.
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The challenges for society presented by climate change are complex and demanding. This paper focuses on one particular resource of utmost necessity and vulnerability to climate change: namely, the provisioning of safe drinking water. From a critical perspective on the role of expertise in risk debates, this paper looks at how Swedish experts understand risk to drinking water in a climate change scenario and how they reason about challenges to risk management and adaptation strategies. The empirical material derives from ten in-depth semi-structured interviews with experts, employed both at government agencies and at universities, and with disciplinary backgrounds in a variety of fields (water engineering, planning, geology and environmental chemistry). The experts understand risk factors affecting both drinking water quality and availability as complex and systemically interrelated. A lack of political saliency of drinking water as a public service is identified as an obstacle to the development of robust adaptation strategies. Another area of concern relates to the geographical, organizational and institutional boundaries (regulatory, political and epistemological) between the plethora of public actors with partly overlapping and sometimes unclear responsibilities for the provisioning of safe drinking water. The study concludes that climate change adaptation regarding drinking water provisioning will require a new integration of the knowledge of systemic risk relations, in combination with more efficient agency collaboration based on a clear demarcation of responsibility between actors.

  • Failed crisis communication: The Northern Rock Bank case
  • 2017
  • Ingår i: Accounting, Auditing & Accountability Journal. - 0951-3574.
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Abstract Purpose: Although granted funding from government agencies, Britain’s Northern Rock (NR) Bank experienced a depositors’ bank run in 2007. This study explores bank managers’ and the Triparties’ communications, in their failed attempt to reassure depositors during the crisis. Design/methodology/approach: The paper is based on content analysis of information given to depositors by bank managers and the Triparties via mass media. The theoretical concepts of rituals and masking were utilized. Findings: Results suggest that nonfinancial reporting supersedes financial reporting. Rather than hidden losses, bank regulators’ and politicians’ discussions of emergency funding for NR was the crucial incident signaling “something going on”. Even positive statements by prominent organizational actors may have signaled serious problems that compromised NR’s “business as usual” stance. Practical implications: Collective action manifested in a bank run is triggered by reasons other than numbers in financial reporting. The research results indicate a need to consider how regulatory authorities act during financial crises. Originality/value: Previous studies concluded that sensegivers must be consistent in framing communication to sensemakers. Sensemaking requires that the crisis communication is also consistent in the sensemakers’ framing. Because it is difficult for sensegivers to reshape the collective sensemakers’ frame, successful crisis communication requires that sensegivers change their comummication to match the sensemakers’ frame, including symbolic actions. Additionally, a bank run is characterized first by loss of trust in financial reporting; second, in nonfinancial reporting; and, finally, in the sensegiving actor: a domino effect.

  • The paradox of sustainable fashion: handling change with consumption diaries
  • 2017
  • Ingår i: Global fashion conference 2016. - 978 -989-20-7053-7
  • Konferensbidrag (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Sustainable fashion is a challenge. Fashion is usually defined in terms of change and novelty, while sustainability inv olves re - use and continuation. Many initiatives for making fashion sustainable focus on finding ways of keeping the logic of fashion, that is change, while avoiding to burden the environment with unsustainable production methods. In this paper we examine the relationship between fashion and sustainability by analyzing how Swedish consumers handle this paradox. The paper builds on a wardrobe study with 34 consumption diaries and wardrobe inventories collected by the County Museum of Sörmland who invited people who were interested in documenting all the clothes and shoes purchased during a period of three months during 2014. The paper discusses how the study was carried out, as well as the different ways in which the writers of the di aries related to questions of shopping, fashion, sustainability and change.
  • A Research Agenda for Management and Organization Studies
  • 2016
  • Samlingsverk (redaktörskap) (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • Managing and organizing are now central phenomena in contemporary societies. It is essential they are studied from a variety of perspectives, and with equal attention paid to their past, their present, and their future. This book collects opinions of the trailblazing scholars concerning the most important research topics, essential for study in the next 15–20 years. The opinions concern both traditional functions, such as accounting and marketing, personnel management and strategy, technology and communication, but also new challenges, such as diversity, equality, waste and cultural encounters. The collection is intended to be inspiration for young scholars and an invitation to a dialogue with practitioners.
