The study suggests that the cooperation in Ystad called One Stop Shop is partly done because it's a popular way of organizing public organizations in Sweden and partly because försäkringskassan, aim to upgrade their organization identity. Problems regarding translation of the idea seem to be the definition of cooperation and what the different actors think is possible to achieve. The differences in definitions are more striking between central authority and local actors than between the two locally based actors. (Less)
