With a strong will and determination, integration actors in Nässjö proceed without a shared destination : Identification of collaborative factors between public sector and civil society (English)
Abstract [en]

This study is carried out during the spring of 2015 and six semi-structured interviews are conducted to form the basis of a case study. Its aim is to map and analyze the integration work performed in the municipality of Nässjö.

The purpose of this study is to survey the work being performed in the municipality of Nässjö regarding integration of immigrants, and to identify crucial factors related to a potential collaboration between actors from the public sector and the civil society.

- How are the chosen participants working with integration in the municipality of Nässjö?

- In what way are the chosen participants currently cooperating with the public sector and the civil society in the municipality of Nässjö regarding integration?

- How do the chosen participants find the idea of a joint collaboration regarding integration, between the public sector and the civil society in the municipality of Nässjö?

With the use of an analyze model called “the constant comparative method”, the study compares and interprets the collected data. All of the informants are representatives of their respective establishment which either belonged to the civil society or to the public sector in the municipality of Nässjö. To assess whether the integration actors are susceptible to the idea of working collaboratively, their responses are compared to a theoretical framework called “collaborative governance”. The collected data is also set in relation to previous research regarding the situation of integration policies in Sweden.

The result chapter displays the work performed by the interviewed establishments and the extent of their cooperation to improve the integration process of immigrants in the municipality. It also lists the various challenges the actors face and the possibility for one of them to have a leading role in a comprehensive and joint collaboration.

The case study illuminates a reality where no common goal regarding integration exists amongst the selected actors. Complicated bureaucracy and regulations constitute discouraging factors that adversely affect the will of civil society actors to engage in collaboration with the public sector. The level of communication within the municipality is highly fragmented, it is found to be more developed within the civil society and to a lesser extent within the public sector. Finally, the case study suggests that there is no history of antagonism among the actors within the civil society.

Abstract [sv]

I den pågående globala övergången till allt mer mångkulturella samhällen sker stora folkförflyttningar och effekterna av dessa blir allt tydligare för var dag. Förändringen som följer med en ökad immigration till ett mottagarland kan ibland vara svårhanterlig och i vissa fall resultera i ökad främlingsfientlighet, segregation och utanförskap. I Sverige existerar för närvarande ingen svensk nationell definition av vad integration innebär eller när denna process skulle kunna anses vara fullständig. Detta har lett till att de integrationsinsatser som görs runt om i landet kan vara både bristfälligt koordinerade och utan klara målsättningar.

Via en beskrivande och kvalitativ fallstudie, där semistrukturerade intervjuer genomförs, granskar denna studie existerande integrationsarbete i Nässjö kommun, Småland. Fokus ligger kring ett eventuellt utvecklande av samverkan mellan den offentliga sektorn och det civila samhället i kommunen. För att identifiera existerande faktorer, vilka kan vara av relevans vid skapandet av en sådan samverkan, har sex stycken integrationsaktörer fått delge sina tankar och åsikter.

Fallstudien identifierar fyra faktorer vilka kan komma att visa sig inverka på möjligheterna till en utökad samverkan mellan offentlig sektor och civilsamhälle, två nationella och två lokala. De två nationella faktorerna, vilka är av försvårande karaktär, är: avsaknaden av integrationsdefinition och existerande svensk byråkrati med tillhörande regelverk. De två lokala faktorerna, vilka istället har en främjande karaktär, är: fördelaktigt kommunikationslandskap och avsaknad av tidigare motsättningar mellan aktörer i Nässjö kommun.
