Sammanfattning

Uppsatsen konstaterar att rättsstaten bygger på och skyddar våra gemensamma värden: frihet, rättvisa och trygghet. Värdena är förankrade i kulturarvet. Kulturarvet omfattar diverse komponenter, vissa klart fastställbara, andra svåra att påvisa. Den juridiska doktrinen är en klart fastställbar komponent av kulturarvet. Rättsstaten skyddar olika intressen som kan knytas till olika idealtyper av människor. I denna uppsats kallas dessa för bonus pater familias och pauperrimus. Bonus pater familias behöver en privat sfär som omgärdas av negativa rättigheter. Staten får inte oskäligt begränsa hans frihet, inte heller kränka hans äganderätt. Pauperrimus är ett slags generaliserad socialkund. Han kan inte planera sitt liv alltför noga. I stället gestaltas hans öde av andras beslut, dels statliga, dels privata, dels fattade av personer som han inte vet så mycket om och som han upplever som anonyma ”osynliga händer”. Pauperrimus behöver framför allt omsorg och trygghet. Han förlitar sig på att samhället tar hand om honom. Om demokrati urartar i ett spel har spelarna ett oslagbart instrument – att tala om jämlikhet och trygghet. Jämlikhet framställs då som identisk med rättvisa. Trygghet uppfattas som identisk med att staten tar hand om oss alla. Vi fastnar då i beroende av den offentliga omsorgen som inte längre kan röstas bort av väljare, anställda i en enorm offentlig sektor och utbildade i skolor som dominerades av sextioåttorna. I smyg förvandlas var och en till pauperrimus.

Sammanfattning

Open innovation has rendered increased interest both in practice and research, and has expanded from dyadic transfers of ideas, to ecosystem levels. Knowledge is at the heart of open innovation, and this paper describes and discusses knowledge-transfer linkages for open innovation. It does so based on a literature review. The paper links together open innovation research with general management research to categorise and discuss linkages among parties in terms of their openness and how they relate to knowledge management. Conclusions indicate that openness needs to be considered in different dimensions that also links to different knowledge management outcomes. The paper’s contribution consists of how it connects open innovation research to the general management literature, and how it builds a practical understanding of how linkages between firms can be categorised to aid firms to consider which mechanisms they may choose and why.

Sammanfattning

What is the role of innovation policy for accomplishing renewal of mature industries in Western economies? Drawing upon an unusually rich dataset spanning 9752 digitized archival documents, we categorize and code decisions taken by policymakers on several levels while also mapping and quantifying the strategic activities of both entrant firms and incumbent monopolists over a decade. Our data concerns two empirical cases from Sweden during the time period 1980–1990: the financial sector and the telecommunications sector. In both industries, a combination of technological and institutional upheaval came into motion during this time period which in turn fueled the revitalization of the Swedish economy in the subsequent decades. Our findings show that Swedish policymakers in both cases consistently acted in order to promote the emergence of more competition and de novo entrant firms at the expense of established monopolies. The paper quantifies and documents this process while also highlighting several enabling conditions. In conclusion, the results indicate that successful innovation policy in mature economies is largely a matter of strategically dealing with resourceful vested interest groups, alignment of expectations, and removing resistance to industrial renewal.

Municipally Owned Enterprises as Danger Zones for Corruption? How Politicians Having Feet in Two Camps May Undermine Conditions for Accountability

Sammanfattning

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.
