Ratio Working Paper

Sammanfattning

Like most developed countries, Sweden has institutionalized employment protection legislation, called LAS. LAS is interesting theoretically because parts of it are semi-coercive. The semi-coerciveness makes it possible for firms and unions under collective agreements to negotiate departures from the law, for instance regarding seniority rules and terminations due to employees’ fit and/or misconduct. In this sense, the law is more flexible than the legal text suggests. The present study explores how the semi-coercive institution of employment protection is perceived and implemented by managers of smaller manufacturing companies. The results suggest that managers support the idea of employment protection rules in principle but face a difficult balancing act in dealing with LAS. Thus, the institutional legitimacy of the law is low. LAS ends up producing local cultures of hypocrisy and pretense. The paper gives insights into how institutions aimed at producing good moral behavior sometimes end up producing the opposite.

Ratio Working Paper

Sammanfattning

This paper contributes to knowledge about regional resilience to displacement and examines the extent to which the characteristics of the i) regional closures, ii) individuals in a region, iii) regional industry, iv) regional economy and v) regional attractiveness influence the re-employment of displaced employees. The results indicate that regions where the average size of establishment closures is large or the regional displacement rate is high exhibit increased resilience in terms of re-employing displaced employees in the same region. Unrelated and related industrial variety are positively related to resilience to displacement in regions with low re-employment capacities, whereas there is some evidence that regional attractiveness is positively related to resilience in regions with a good ability to re-employ displaced employees.

Migration kan främja internationalisering

Sammanfattning

Utdrag: Migration kan främja internationalisering. De positiva sambanden härleds till att migranterna med sina språkfärdigheter samt kunskaper om och kontakter i andra länder kan bidra till att sänka kostnaderna för företagens utrikeshandel. Dessutom kan migranter öka handeln genom att efterfråga produkter från sina hemländer. Bidraget till internationaliseringsprocesserna kan därmed ge företag och konsumenter tillgång till större marknader. Det ökar konkurrensen och effektiviteten i ekonomin.

Artikeln baseras till stor del på Hatzigeorgious och Lodefalks rapport Migration och företagens internationalisering – en kunskapsöversikt författad för Delegationen för migrationsstudier (Delmi).
