According to our apprehension, work of integration is commonly considered managed in the main best through the labour market. Since this path is not available to everybody we wanted to find out how work of integration also can be practised in other areas. The purpose of this paper is to, with focus on children and youth, find out and analyze in what way the people working locally in residential areas and in associations, reflects around integration in general and within their own business, plus in what way they pursue local work of integration practically. The method we have used is qualitative, with unstructured, individual interviews. Our seven respondents within local authority, church and sport clubs, have told us about their work from a perspective of integration. When analyzing the interviews it has crystallized that work of integration can be managed within many different scenes of actions. It is not only directed to immigrants but also to everybody irrespective of age, gender or ethnical background. In church and sport clubs work of integration is driven without really being the original purpose. The local authorities have on the other hand from the beginning a more governed policy of integration. (Less)
