Abstract
The aim of this study is to discuss the implementation of Swedish integration policy from the perspective that public officials, so called front-line bureaucrats, are the real creators of this policy. The concept of integration is far from unambigous; it can have different meanings depending on the theoretical perspective applied. This give topical interest to the question of how the concept is conceived on the national level versus the implementation level. I also aim to uncover how these front-line bureaucrats look upon their role as creators of integration policy. My material consists mainly of interviews with front-line bureauctrats. The study shows that there is a discrepancy between the national level and the implementation level... (More)
The aim of this study is to discuss the implementation of Swedish integration policy from the perspective that public officials, so called front-line bureaucrats, are the real creators of this policy.

I also aim to uncover how these front-line bureaucrats look upon their role as creators of integration policy. My material consists mainly of interviews with front-line bureauctrats. The study shows that there is a discrepancy between the national level and the implementation level when it comes to the understanding of integration as a concept. The legitimacy of the work of front-line bureaucrats lies instead mainly in the idea that considerable concern should be given to each and every client. This is something that must be put in relation to the fact that the interviewed front-line bureaucrats do not view themselves as policymakers. (Less)
