Abstract
This thesis has the purpose of developing a normative theoretical framework based on different political philosophers and scientists view on deliberative democratic theory, discourse ethics and a modified norm of citizenship.

This thesis has the purpose of developing a normative theoretical framework based on different political philosophers and scientists view on deliberative democratic theory, discourse ethics and a modified norm of citizenship. This framework is supposed to contain the ideal communicative situation for people seeking asylum. Hence, the thesis argues that political influence is best practised through communicative rights, and that people seeking asylum are in title to such rights. We conclude that the standards needed to be met in order to reach the ideal are: translators, translated information, arenas for- or channels of communication, language education, and deliberative education. Once the framework is established we focus our interest on the Swedish state. By interviewing an expert at the Swedish immigrations office we derive basic information about sources such as laws, evaluations and information material, which is then thoroughly researched in order to establish the state´s positioning in the matter. When this is done the ideal is compared to the alternative provided by the state. Finally we reach the conclusion that some aspects of the ideal are at least partially fulfilled, while some are not.
