Abstract

I rapporten Valideringens Janusansikte – Branschorganisationernas förhållningssätt till validering, SeQF och generiska kompetenser presenteras en kvalitativ intervjustudie med företrädare för branschorganisationer inom privat sektor som totalt representerar drygt hälften av samtliga sysselsatta i Sverige.

En slutsats är branschernas egna valideringssystem och den nationella referensramen SeQF kan leda till förbättrad kompetensförsörjning. Samtidigt innebär dessa system risker som kan leda till det motsatta resultatet, nämligen förvärra kompetensbristen och hindra etablering. Allt beroende på systemets utformning och förankring.

Processen för att utveckla gemensamma valideringssystem måste vara ”bottom-up” och branschförankrad för att bli legitim och ge positiva effekter. Samtidigt behövs centrala initiativ för att dessa system för att åstadkomma förbättrad kompetensmatchning, ökad rörlighet och ett synliggörande av arbetssökandes – däribland nyanländas – anställningsbarhet.

Rapporten är skriven inom ramen för projektet Yrke, kvalifikation, rörlighet, som finansieras av den Europeiska Sociala Fonden, av Alexandru Panican, docent vid Lunds Universitet och Ratio – Näringslivets forskningsinstitut.

The Idea Vacuum of Liberalism and the Quest for Meaning and Community

Abstract

Liberalism is losing ground, while populist or even authoritarian nationalist regimes are on the rise. This article argues that the causes of the decline are, at least partly, endogenous, that a narrow focus on economic efficiency and the successful critique of socialism and the welfare state have created an idea vacuum that has opened up for these illiberal tendencies. The conclusion is that a central challenge for liberalism is to offer a comprehensive idea and narrative about meaning and community that is not socialist, conservative or nationalist, but distinctly liberal, to counter these developments.

Abstract

The market-inspired reforms of New Public Management have been particularly pronounced in Swedish local government. Notably, municipally owned enterprises (MOEs) have rapidly grown in numbers. Principal-agent theory gives rise to the hypothesis that the massive introduction of MOEs has impacted negatively on the conditions for accountability in Swedish local government. To study this, social network analysis was employed in mapping networks for 223 MOEs in 11 strategically chosen municipalities, covering a total of 732 politicians. The analysis reveals substantial overlaps between principals (representatives of the ultimate stakeholders, citizens) and agents (the boards of the MOEs). Hence, corporatization of public services seems to imply worrisome entanglements between the politicians who are set to steer, govern, and oversee MOEs on the one hand, and the board members of MOEs on the other. The increasing numbers of MOEs may therefore have adverse effects on accountability in important and growing parts of Swedish local government.

Migration and Occupational Careers: The Static and Dynamic Urban Wage Premium by Education and City Size

Abstract

Using matched employer-employee full population data on regional migrants in Sweden, this paper addresses the question whether the urban wage premium, and ‘thick’ labour market matching effects, are to be found across all educational groups, and whether the population threshold for these types of effects varies by educational category. Estimating initial wages, average wage level and wage growth 2001-2009, we find similar wage premiums for all workers in the three largest metropolitan areas, but that there are distinct population thresholds for these type of effects, regardless of educational background. However, job search behaviour as explaining dynamic effects over time seems to pertain mostly to those with higher education.
