  • The "externalisation" of local public service delivery
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: International Journal of Public Policy. - 1740-0600. ; 5:1, s. 41-56
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • In recent years, the local government sector in European countries has undergone important changes involving, among other things, the externalisation of local public service provision through various forms of corporatisation, public-public collaboration, public-private partnerships and contracting out. An important consequence of these institutional changes has been the recasting of local governance systems through the need for increased cooperation between public and private actors. This article addresses these matters with comparative reference to the experience in Italy and Sweden. In doing so, it considers local governments in their constitutional and legal contexts, leading to more detailed discussions of their externalisation initiatives and resultant organisational forms and governance arrangements. Issues of ownership have been important concerning the significance of 'community' and 'place' in the management of public affairs.

  • What explains variation in voluntary disclosure? A study of the annual reports of corporations listed on the Stockholm Stock Exchange
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: Journal of Management and Governance. - 1385-3457. ; 14, s. 351-377
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The demand for information and transparency from listed corporationshas recently increased. In spite of an increased demand for mandatory disclosuresfrom regulators, corporations choose to voluntarily disclose additional informationin order to satisfy demands from the capital market. However, the extent andcontent of information in those voluntary disclosures vary across corporations. Theaim of this study is to explain the variation in the content of information in voluntarydisclosures by listed corporations. The analyses are based on data collectedfrom 431 annual reports from corporations listed on the Stockholm Stock Exchangeduring the years 2002 and 2005. The findings support explanations from agencytheory and positive accounting theory that size and the debt ratio are positivelycorrelated with the content of information in voluntary disclosures. Corporationswith a high share of management ownership disclosed less information than corporationswith a low share of management ownership. The study also shows thatvariations in voluntary disclosures can be explained by factors derived from institutionaltheory and ‘international capital market pressures’. The results indicate thatforeign ownership and international listing to some extent have a positive effect onthe content of information in voluntary disclosures. Industry was another factor thathad a significant influence on voluntary disclosures. One important finding is thatregulation to some extent can stimulate voluntary disclosures; our results did notindicate an ‘unintended chilling effect’ due to too much regulation. In general, thecorporations disclosed more voluntary information after the introduction of IFRS.

  • Blood in the board room : Family relationships influencing the functions of the board
  • 2011
  • Konferensbidrag (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • We develop the concept of family through using insights from evolutionary psychology, stressing genetic kinship, i.e., blood relationships. We apply the family concept on the functional emphasis of family firm’s boards. Testing the hypotheses on a convenient-sample of 68 small and medium sized Swedish family firms, we find indications of blood relationships influencing the functions of the board. We suggest the development of the family conception according to these lines, where blood and the basic characteristics of nepotism are constitutive.

  • Duty governing human actions
  • 2010
  • Annan publikation (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • We argue that humans have at least three basic instincts, the instinct of selfishness, of belongingness and of duty. We explore the instinct of duty through describing its origin in Kantian moral thinking and through extracting some implications of duty through analysing three persons and their actions. We believe that we make duty a reasonable category of human action, if not an instinct of humans, using evolutionary arguments in order to support our thesis. We indicate opportunities of empirically studying duty through offering testable hypotheses and suggestions of empirical design. Thus, we claim that management science can include Kant and action due to duty in the arsenal of explanations of human behaviour.

  • Governance strategies in local government: A study of the governance of municipal corporations in a Swedish municipality
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: International Journal of Public Policy. - 1740-0600. ; 5:4, s. 373-389
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Municipal corporations can be seen as a method of disintegratingmunicipal operations, but retaining control through those corporations. Weassume that the municipal influence of the corporation can be describedthrough the concept of governance strategy. Through a case study of sevencorporations in one Swedish municipality, we found that emphasis was put oncorporate strategy as a governance mechanism and that the board only retaineda latent capacity. Furthermore, financial control and executive compensationwere hardly ever used as governance mechanisms, which led us to formulatethe ‘chamber concert’ hypothesis: the use of governance mechanisms isinfluenced by traditions, norms, knowledge and governance needs.
