  1. 1. Demographics and Future Needs for Public Long Term Care and Services among the Elderly in Sweden : The Need for Planning

    Författare :Ilija Batljan; Mats Thorslund; Joakim Palme; Stockholms universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Long term care and social services (LTCaS) for older people are an important part of the Scandinavian welfare state. The fast growing number of elderly people in Sweden has caused many concerns about increases in future needs (and particularly costs) of age-related social programs such as LTCaS. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Det svaga könet? : kön och vuxendödlighet i 1800-talets Sverige

    Sammanfattning : This study deals with mortality among adults in 19th century Sweden. Ever since the mid-eighteenth century there has been a pattern of excessive male mortality in practically all ages. The gap between the mortality curves of men and women have, however, varied greatly in time and space. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Social Ecography : International trade, network analysis, and an Emmanuelian conceptualization of ecological unequal exchange

    Författare :Carl Nordlund; Humanekologi; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; ecological unequal exchange; commodity trade; ecological economics; world-system analysis; network analysis; human ecology; ecography;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis demonstrates how network analysis, ecological economics and the world-system perspective can be combined into an ecographic framework that can yield new insights into the underlying structure of the world-economy as well as its surrounding world-ecology. In particular, the thesis focuses on the structural theory of ecological unequal exchange, a theory suggesting a relationship between positionality within the world-system and unequal exchange of biophysical resources.

  4. 4. On Food Price Implications from Expanded Bioenergy Production

    Författare :David Bryngelsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; food price effects; Sub-Saharan Africa; partial equilibrium model; bioenergy; staple crops; land use competition; household survey;

    Sammanfattning : Bioenergy has been put forward as a solution to energy security and at the same time to climate change. It is, however, dependent on productive agricultural land, which is a limited resource. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Land-use competition and agricultural greenhouse gas emissions in a climate change mitigation perspective

    Författare :David Bryngelsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Bioenergy; Diets; Livestock; Integrated assessment model; Land use competition; GHG emissions; Partial equilibrium model; Mitigation; Food consumption; Climate change;

    Sammanfattning : Productive land for food production, bioenergy, or preservation of nature is a limited resource. Climate change mitigation puts additional pressure on land via higher demand for bioenergy to replace fossil fuels and via restrictions on deforestation—two processes that limit the availability of land for food produc- tion, and may thus also raise food prices.
