    Probabilistic Forecasts Using Expert Judgment: The Road to Recovery From COVID-192023In: Journal of Travel Research, ISSN 0047-2875, E-ISSN 1552-6763, Vol. 62, no 1, p. 233-258, article id 00472875211059240Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating effect on many industries around the world including tourism and policy makers are interested in mapping out what the recovery path will look like. We propose a novel statistical methodology for generating scenario-based probabilistic forecasts based on a large survey of 443 tourism experts and stakeholders. The scenarios map out pessimistic, most-likely and optimistic paths to recovery. Taking advantage of the natural aggregation structure of tourism data due to geographic locations and purposes of travel, we propose combining forecast reconciliation and forecast combinations implemented to historical data to generate robust COVID-free counterfactual forecasts, to contrast against. Our empirical application focuses on Australia, analyzing international arrivals and domestic flows. Both sectors have been severely affected by travel restrictions in the form of international and interstate border closures and regional lockdowns. The two sets of forecasts, allow policy makers to map out the road to recovery and also estimate the expected effect of the pandemic.

    Promoting Air Quality Policy Adoption and Change2021Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Air pollution is a localised issue but negatively influences health and finance globally. Conurbations and regional governments struggle to find the best policy solutions to meet air quality limit levels while competing over resources and attempting to secure growth. As such, methods to increase the adoption of effective pollution-focused policies are warranted. This thesis has set out to create a framework for understanding the relationship between behaviour change of policy makers and the adoption of new air quality policies at regional levels of government. Chapter four of this thesis looked into the quality and results of previous literature through a systematic review (study 1), investigating how previous interventions have attempted to promote policy adoption. Within chapter five, a vignette study with policy practitioners (study 2; n = 15) was conducted to evaluate the use of intervention functions. Alongside the vignette study, an online questionnaire looked at perceived barriers to policy adoption. Data from both were amalgamated using thematic analysis. Finally, in chapter six, the use of interventions to promote air quality policy and the state of current UK air quality policy was reviewed (study 3). Collectively these studies have contributed to the understanding of how intervention functions influence policy intention formation and policy adoption. The combined outcomes of these studies suggest a) a need for increased education of policymakers and b) for councils to share learning and take inspiration from each other. Throughout the studies, key barriers to policy intentions and policy adoption were investigated, the most prominent being economic and administrative barriers. Within chapter seven, results are summarised and directions for future research and practice are suggested.

    Societal Collapse: A Literature Review2022In: Futures: The journal of policy, planning and futures studies, ISSN 0016-3287, E-ISSN 1873-6378, Vol. 145, article id 103075Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Because of concerns that ongoing climate change could lead to a possible collapse of human civilization, the topic of societal (civilization) collapse has emerged as especially relevant, not least for the futures-oriented studies. While this has led to extensive research on societal collapse, there is a lack of consolidation and synthesis of the research. The purpose of this article is thus to systematize the extant research on societal collapse and suggest future research directions. This article offers a systematic multidisciplinary review of the existing literature (361 articles and 73 books) and identifies five scholarly conversations: past collapses, general explanations of collapse, alternatives to collapse, fictional collapses, and future climate change and societal collapse. The review builds the foundation for a critical discussion of each line of inquiry by focusing on theoretical tensions and themes within each scholarly conversation, ending with a discussion of how these conversations inform futures research.

    Achieving Circular and Efficient Production Systems: Emerging Challenges from Industrial Cases2021In: Advances in Production Management Systems. Artificial Intelligence for Sustainable and Resilient Production Systems: IFIP WG 5.7 International Conference, APMS 2021, Nantes, France, September 5–9, 2021, Proceedings, Part IV / [ed] Alexandre Dolgui; Alain Bernard; David Lemoine; Gregor von Cieminski; David Romero, Cham: Springer, 2021, p. 523-533Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As the need for more responsible production and consumption grows quickly, so does the interest in the concepts of eco-efficiency and circularity. To make swift progress towards sustainability, solutions must be developed and deployed at scale. It is therefore critical to understand the challenges faced by industry to accelerate the uptake of best practices for circular and efficient production systems. This paper presents the emerging issues from three industrial pilots in an on-going collaborative project. We discuss and suggest further work around crucial questions such as: How to deploy circular solutions from lab to industrial scale? How can digitalization support efficient circular processes?.

    Toward an ambidextrous framework for offensive cyberspace operations: A theory, policy and practice perspective2020In: Proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Cyber Warfare and Security, ICCWS 2020 / [ed] Brian K. Payne, Hongyi Wu, Reading, UK: Academic Conferences and Publishing International Limited, 2020, p. 243-253Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article addresses the rise in state-sponsored cyber attacks over the past three decades and proposes a new ambidextrous framework for offensive cyberspace operations. Since 1982, nation states have embarked in a fierce race to develop both clandestine and covert offensive cyber capabilities. Their intended targets range from foreign militaries and terrorist organizations to civilian populations and the critical infrastructures that they rely upon. Advancements in cyber security have, however, contributed to the discovery and attribution of offensive cyber operations, such as state-sponsored ransomware attacks, where state-built cyber capabilities have been used to attack governments, industries, academia and citizens of adversary nations. The financial and psychological costs of these ransomware attacks are today a threat to any state's national security. This article draws from academic research, the cyber military doctrines of four countries-a total of eight models from the Netherlands, Sweden, the U.S., and the U.K.-and the authors' operational experience to propose a new ambidextrous framework for offensive cyberspace operations. This ambidextrous framework for offensive cyberspace operations and the associated Cyberspace Operations Canvas are needed today in order to increase the resilience of national critical infrastructures against attacks from state-developed tools. We use the WannaCry-case to illustrate how the implementation of the ambidextrous framework for offensive cyberspace operations would result in increased awareness and understanding of the prospective cyber threats, their intended target(s), the likelihood of cascading effects and the options available by nation states to minimize them.

    An anticipatory ethical analysis of offensive cyberspace operations2020In: Proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Cyber Warfare and Security, ICCWS 2020 / [ed] Brian K. Payne, Hongyi Wu, Reading: Academic Conferences and Publishing International Limited, 2020, p. 512-520Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents the ethical issues using offensive cyberspace operations. Previously enshrouded in secrecy, and now becoming the new norm, countries are using offensive cyberspace operations to achieve their strategic interests. Russia has conducted multiple offensive operations targeting Estonia, Georgia and the Ukraine; Hamas has targeted Israeli targets; and Iran has been targeting U.S. targets. The response to these operations has varied; Estonia and Georgia struggled with the attacks and were unable to respond while Ukraine tried to respond but the response was inefficient. Israel's response on Hamas offensive operations was an air strike on a building with Hamas Cyber-operatives. Iran shot down a U.S. Drone over the Strait of Hormuz, and the U.S. initially intended to respond with kinetic capabilities in the form of missile strikes. However, in the last minute, the U.S. chose to respond with offensive cyberspace operations targeting the Iranian missile systems. This last-minute change of response choosing between kinetic or cyber capabilities shows a need to further investigate how offensive cyberspace operations can be used against which targets from an ethical perspective. This article applies anticipatory ethical analysis on U.S. offensive operations in the “Global Hawk”-case when Iran shot down a U.S. drone over the Strait of Hormuz. Anticipatory ethical analysis looks at emerging technologies and their potential consequences. Offensive cyberspace operations present a range of possibilities, which include lowering the risk of harm to cyber operatives' lives belonging to the responding nation. However, a response can also be kinetic. Therefore, the analysis of the “Global Hawk”-case is compared with the Israeli-air strike of the building of Hamas Cyber-operatives. The authors argue that applying anticipatory ethical analysis on offensive operations and kinetic operations assist decision makers in choosing response actions to re-establish deterrence through the use of offensive cyberspace operations.

    Anticipatory ethics for vulnerability disclosure2020In: Proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Cyber Warfare and Security, ICCWS 2020 / [ed] Brian K. Payne, Hongyi Wu, Reading: Academic Conferences and Publishing International Limited, 2020, p. 254-261Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents the ethical dilemma related to under what circumstances vulnerabilities should be disclosed. Vulnerabilities exist in hardware and software, and can be as a consequence of programming errors or design flaws. Threat actors can exploit these vulnerabilities to gain otherwise unintended access to information systems, resources and/or stored information. In other words, they can be used to impact the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information in information systems. As a result, various types of vulnerabilities are highly sought after since they enable this type of access. The most highly sought are so-called “zero-day”-vulnerabilities. These are vulnerabilities that exist but are unknown, and when exploited, enable one way of entry into a system that is not thought possible. This is also why zero-day vulnerabilities are very popular among criminal organizations, states and state-sponsored advanced persistent threats. The other side of the coin is when a state identifies a zero-day, and ends up in the ethical dilemma of whether to release the news and inform the vendor to patch it, i.e. close the vulnerability, or to use it for offensive or intelligence purposes. This article employs these distinctions to apply anticipatory ethics in the Stuxnet-case. Stuxnet was a computer software that was allegedly developed by the U.S. together with Israel to disrupt Iran's development of uranium for their nuclear program. More exactly, it was developed to disable the uranium centrifuges used to enrich uranium. To achieve this, Stuxnet exploited four zero-day vulnerabilities and, according to some experts, managed to delay Iran's nuclear program by one to two-years, forcing them to the negotiation table. Using vulnerabilities like zero-days presents opportunities but also risks. The results of the application of anticipatory ethics to the Stuxnet case are then compared with the “Osirak”-case and the “al-Kibar”-case. Osirak was the nuclear reactor in Iraq and was bombed in 1981; al-Kibar was the nuclear reactor being built up in Syria, also bombed in 2007.

    Cross-temporal coherent forecasts for Australian tourism2019In: Annals of Tourism Research, ISSN 0160-7383, E-ISSN 1873-7722, Vol. 75, p. 393-409Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Key to ensuring a successful tourism sector is timely policy making and detailed planning. National policy formulation and strategic planning requires long-term forecasts at an aggregate level, while regional operational decisions require short-term forecasts, relevant to local tourism operators. For aligned decisions at all levels, supporting forecasts must be ‘coherent’ that is they should add up appropriately, across relevant demarcations (e.g., geographical divisions or market segments) and also across time. We propose an approach for generating coherent forecasts across both cross-sections and planning horizons for Australia. This results in significant improvements in forecast accuracy with substantial decision making benefits. Coherent forecasts help break intra- and inter-organisational information and planning silos, in a data driven fashion, blending information from different sources. This article also launches the Annals of Tourism Research Curated Collection on Tourism Demand Forecast, a special selection of research in this field.

    Visitor arrivals forecasts amid COVID-19: A perspective from the Africa team2021In: Annals of Tourism Research, ISSN 0160-7383, E-ISSN 1873-7722, Vol. 88, article id 103197Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    COVID-19 disrupted international tourism worldwide, subsequently presenting forecasters with a challenging conundrum. In this competition, we predict international arrivals for 20 destinations in two phases: (i) Ex post forecasts pre-COVID; (ii) Ex ante forecasts during and after the pandemic up to end 2021. Our results show that univariate combined with cross-sectional hierarchical forecasting techniques (THieF-ETS) outperform multivariate models pre-COVID. Scenarios were developed based on judgemental adjustment of the THieF-ETS baseline forecasts. Analysts provided a regional view on the most likely path to normal, based on country-specific regulations, macroeconomic conditions, seasonal factors and vaccine development. Results show an average recovery of 58% compared to 2019 tourist arrivals in the 20 destinations under the medium scenario; severe, it is 34% and mild, 80%.

    Do Tourists Dream of Electric Bikes?: Electric Bikes as a Mean to Improve Sustainability of Tourism in Rural Sweden2022In: Academic Mindtrek 2022: 25th International Academic Mindtrek conference, Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2022, p. 167-178Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper investigates the potential of electric bikes as a sustainable alternative for local transportation during vacations in rural areas, replacing mainly transportation by car. Our starting point is that a key to behaviour change in the context of tourism and leisure travels is to make the sustainable travel option the most desirable option for the traveller. We study this by exploring three different electric bike offers in the area of Skaraborg, Sweden, and analysing the experience of the cyclists. 15 participants were invited to rent electric bicycles as mode of transportation for tourism in and around the small towns Lidköping and Skara for one day. Individual semi structured interviews were performed with the participants. Our main result is that there are aspects of electric bikes that make them particularly appropriate as a sustainable mode of transportation for local tourist destinations, and could also lower the threshold for more sustainable behaviours. Travelling by electric bike was experienced as beneficial in several ways; it automatically and effortlessly gives the cyclist access to nature, it constitutes a plausible option for more sustainable transportation at medium distances, and it allows the entire group of travellers, such as a families, to feel as being part of shaping the journey which contributes to engagement and motivation. Although intended for tourists, it also facilitate local people to access and reflect on their local flora and fauna. We also found that digital tools such as maps, information sources, and booking systems have a key part in the deployment when appropriately integrated. In addition, we found that it was important to lower the threshold of trying electric bikes, and an important key for this was personal service from proficient people who could provide a sense of security by giving instructions, answering questions, and support in adjusting the equipment.

    Germinating good behaviors: A game prototype to test players' incentive of choice2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 40 credits / 60 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we propose and develop a model for a prototype research tool based on a social dilemma game which use is widely spread in social psychology and experimental economics, the Public Goods Game. This tool generates from the necessity to expand the accessibility and versatility of this popular game as well as reach for newer audiences that might be otherwise deterred by the traditional Public Goods Game. Also, using this tool, we perform an experiment to try to find a possible preference towards either punishment or reward in the current population and find a possible correlation between said preference and three different cultural spheres (geographical, generational and gender).

    In Need for Better Maintenance Cost Modelling to Support the Partnership with Manufacturing2016In: Current Trends in Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Safety: An Industry Perspective / [ed] Uday Kumar, Alireza Ahmadi, Ajit Kumar Verma & Prabhakar Varde, Springer, 2016, 1, p. 263-282Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The problem of maintenance consequential costs has to be dealt with in manufacturing and is core of this paper. The need of sustainable partnership between manufacturing and maintenance is addressed. Stuck in a best practice thinking, applying negotiation as a method based on power statements in the service level agreement, the common best possible achievable goal is put on risk. Instead, it may enforce narrow minded sub optimized thinking even though not intended so. Unfortunately, the state of origin is not straightforward business. Present maintenance cost modelling is approached, however limits to its ability to address the dynamic complexity of production flows are acknowledged. The practical problem to deal with is units put together in production flows; in which downtime in any unit may or may not result in decreased throughput depending on its set up. In this environment accounting consequential costs is a conundrum and a way forward is suggested. One major aspect in the matter is the inevitable need of shift in mind, from perspective thinking in maintenance and manufacturing respectively towards shared perspectives, nourishing an advantageous sustainable partnership.

    Common Problems! and Common Solutions? - Teaching at the Intersection Between Public Health and Criminology: A Public Health Perspective2024In: Annals of Global Health, E-ISSN 2214-9996, Vol. 90, no 1, article id 12Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Public health and criminology share similar current and future challenges, mostly related to crime and health causation, prevention, and sustainable development. Interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches to education at the intersection of public health and criminology can be an integral part of future training in areas of mutual interest. Based on reflections on teaching criminology students, this viewpoint discusses the main interconnections between public health and criminology teaching through the public health lens. The paper discusses potential challenges associated with interdisciplinarity and transdisciplinarity. Among these challenges is communication across the different fields and their perspectives to be able to achieve the desired complementarity at the intersection of the two disciplines.

    Recognition and emotional valence of isolated gestures in autism spectrum disorder.2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Earlier research has repeatedly shown that individuals with autism spectrum disorders are significantly impaired in emotional recognition of biological motion. This study adopted an approach where the typically developed and the autistic participants rated emotional valence and recognition of isolated gestures in Point-light display. Results revealed that participant groups did not differ in their emotional valence of the gestures but differed in recognition of the gestures. The method of using isolated gestures in Point-light display has not been used in autism emotional research earlier and this paper functions as a pilot of this technique. The results are discussed from a perspective that individuals with autism perceive the world differently and hence understand and interact differently with the world.

    Older twins' experiences of the relationship with their co-twin over the life course2012In: Journal of Aging Studies, ISSN 0890-4065, E-ISSN 1879-193X, Vol. 26, no 2, p. 119-128Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on 35 life stories of aging twins, this study focuses on personal experiences and recollections of their relationships with the co-twin over the life course. The participants are part of two longitudinal Swedish twin studies on aging, SATSA and Gender. In the narrative analysis, three relationship patterns, labeled ‘nurturing’, ‘draining’, and ‘superficial’, emerged, pointing to qualitative aspects in the co-twin relationship. The dominating aspect was emotional closeness, which differed in the three relationship patterns. In the nurturing twin relationship pattern, emotional closeness was experienced as intimacy and yet independence, while in the draining relationship pattern it was experienced as dependence. The superficial twin relationship was experienced as distant and lacking in emotional involvement. Most of the relationship patterns seemed to remain the same throughout life. However, seen from a life course perspective, this study pointed to complexity and diversity in lifelong twin relationships.

    Living and surviving with enemies: The dynamics of intimacy in long-duration multinational outer space missions2020In: International Journal of Russian Studies, E-ISSN 2158-7051, Vol. 9, no 1, p. 38-54Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Outer space exploration is typically considered in the context of geopolitical militarized competition, a phenomenon known as the ‘space race’. Less attention has been given to partnership projects between the Soviet Union/Russia and the United States – the central space race antagonists – that had already begun in the 1970s with the short-term Soyuz/Apollo initiative and continued in the 1990s via collaboration around long-duration space missions. The current study focuses on the Russian-American Mir/Shuttle program (1994–1998). With the help of critical discourse analysis, I examine the experiences and representations of interpersonal interactions that emerged in the framework of the Mir/Shuttle program, looking at the ways in which dominant value systems, the materiality of organizational structures and the embodied sense of existential vulnerability might shape the space flyer’s perception of the objectives, realities and outcomes of this cross-national collaboration.

    Marxism And Its 'Other': Why Do We Need Althusser To Understand Foucault?2020In: Khazar Journal of Humanities and Social Sciences, ISSN 2223-2613, E-ISSN 2223-2621, Vol. 23, no 2, p. 80-97Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    With the current renewal of interest in the Marxist theoretical tradition, revisiting its classical and neoclassical texts is crucial for understanding Marxism's explanatory potential in the context of contemporary socio-political relationships. This paper makes productive efforts to review existing theoretical perspectives on non-coercive mechanisms of engaging the masses with particular value systems. I discuss Althusser's theory of ideology: its content, central critique, and developments in relation to other compatible theories, the most salient of which is the idea of governmentality proposed by Foucault. Foucault's approach is especially interesting due to its consistent attempts to separate itself from the critical tradition. As I demonstrate, however, several parallels can be drawn between the theory of ideology and the notion of governmentality, including the focus on reproduction, attempts to address the issue of contingency, interest in both the symbolic and the material, the emphasis on the mechanism of subjection and recognition of individualization of power relationships. I conclude that critical reflections over Althusser's epistemological findings and the legacy of his ideas may facilitate our understanding of prospective developments in the Marxist tradition and its alternatives.

    Social Immunology: Application in Research on Migration2022In: The Russian Sociological Review, ISSN 1728-192X, Vol. 21, no 1, p. 71-86Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The COVID-19 pandemic has been challenging the world for many months, drawing the public's attention to the field of epidemiology. Governments around the globe urgently call on the scientific community to provide guidelines for the treatment and prevention of coronavirus infections. Immunity protection (natural or man-made) is at the epicentre of state policies and public discussions. It is less known that the epidemiological discourse had been used beyond natural sciences in the domain of philosophy and social research. This paper introduces the concept of social immunology developed by Italian philosopher Roberto Esposito at the turn of the 20th century as part of the discussion of the notion of biopolitics. I re-read one of my previous research projects through the lens of Esposito's theory to show the potential of his theoretical constructs in studies on migration and integration.

    Basic facts• The Swedish households had expenditures of SEK 1477 billions in 2009.• The households’ expenditures decreased with 0.6 percent compared to 2008 and increased 24 percent compared to 1999.• For the first time since 1993 the total consumption in Sweden decreased between two years, from 2008 to 2009.• During the period 2005- 2009 the households’ expenditures for electricity and consumables/con-sumer goods (e.g. toilet paper and hygiene articles) increased by more than 20%.• During the period 2005-2009 total expenditures for Swedish households related to phone calls and telephone subscriptions decreased.• Prices decreased with 0.6 percent from 2008 to 2009.1999-2009 prices increased with 15,9 per-cent.• Expenditure groups that increased the most compared to 2008 were:- Health and hospital services, 5.7 percent- Alcohol and tobacco, 5.1 percent- Purchases by non-resident households in Sweden, 4.9 percent• Expenditure groups that had high increases between 1999 and 2009:- Communication services, 132 percent- Purchases by non-resident households in Sweden, 104 percent- Furnishings, household equipment and routine maintenance of the house, 76 percent-Leisure time and culture, 66 percent- Clothing and footwear, 53 percent• The expenditure group that decreased the most compared to 2008:- Purchases by non-resident households in Sweden, -13.8 percent• Single persons with children had the lowest total expenditures. They consume less than other housekeeping units regarding alcoholic beverages, dinner out, furniture, transports and leisure ac-tivities.• Cohabiting without children had the highest total expenditures. They consume more than other housekeeping units regarding alcoholic beverages, dinner out, transports and leisure activities.• Men spent more money than women on alcoholic beverages, tobacco, sport and hobby. • Men spent less money than women on personal hygiene, underwear, footwear, other services.• In 2009, more Swedish people than ever were very satisfied with their life. The increase from 2008 to 2009 was especially large among women. • The share of consumption of ecological and environmental goods was 3.5 percent.  

    In-depth articles• The Swedish consumption of alcohol decreases despite the fact that the Swedish Alcohol Retailing Monopoly sells more. The reason is that legal and illegal direct purchases abroad by Swedish residents have decreased.• From 2007 to 2009 the Swedish household ́s expenditures for consumables/consumer goods in-creased. One reason is that consumers in a recession consume less durable goods and high-risk investments and instead use their money for more short term expenditures.• Men become more and more interested in beauty articles and cosmetics which also explain the increases in consumption related to consumables/consumer goods.• The Swedish households’ expenditures of electricity have increased. The main reason is in-creases in the price of electricity. Another reason is increases in number of devices that needs electricity.
