Popular Abstract in Swedish

Avhandlingen visar två olika vägar för att skapa brukarinflytande, den kollektiv- och den individinriktade vägen. Den kollektiva inriktningen innebär att medborgarna endast kan utöva inflytande via folkvalda företrädare, medan den individinriktade vägen ger möjlighet att samverka direkt med politiker och tjänstemän i den kommunala organisationen. Två olika teorier har använts i detta arbete: Talcott Parsons teori om samhället som socialt system och Håkan Hydéns normteori. Parsons teori används för att peka ut var i det sociala systemet mötet mellan aktörerna äger rum medan Hydéns teori ger struktur åt avhandlingen och fungerar som ett verktyg vid analysen av den normbildning som sker.

Sammanfattningen av denna avhandling är att den representativa demokratin inte har ersatts av olika former av brukarsamverkan. De två inriktningarna och formerna samverkar med varandra på ett sätt som gör det möjligt att för brukare att göra sin röst hörd mellan valen och för politiker och tjänstemän att på ett direkt sätt säkra kvaliteten på den kommunala servicen. Paradigmförändringen från kollektiv- till individinriktning är därför inte en fråga om representativ demokrati eller demokrati genom brukarsamverkan, utan om representativ demokrati och brukarsamverkan. På så sätt kommer brukarråd och andra grupper där aktörerna samverkar att fungera som konvergeringspunkter som gör det möjligt för aktörernas olika normmiljöer att intervenera. (Less)
Abstract
The dissertation shows two different means or directions for creating civic participation: the collective and the individual way. The collective way is characterized by the citizen's ability to participate only through elected representatives while the individual way makes it possible for inhabitants to participate face to face with politicians and local civil servants.



Two different theories have been used: Talcott Parson's theory of the social system and Håkan Hydén's theory of norms. Parson's theory is used to point out where in the social system the interaction between the actors takes place, whereas Hydén's theory structures the dissertation and provides the project with a tool to analyse the process of norm...

The conclusions of this dissertation are that democracy through elected representatives is not replaced by different forms of organized collaboration between consumers, politicians and local government employees. The two models, or directions, co- operate with each other in a way that provides a possibility for the consumer to make her/his voice heard between elections and for the politicians and local government employees to secure the quality of the municipality services. Thus the paradigm change from industrial to information society is not a question of representative democracy or civic participation by collaboration with actors in the local municipality organization; it is a question of collaboration between representative democracy and civic participation. In this way the collaboration groups become the converging points that make it possible for the actors in the two norm environments to intervene. (Less)
