We found that the hospitality in Sjöbo was very much impoved. The community had set up a goal to do this right and were looking in to different possibilities to be able to do so. Concideering the goverments regulationes Sjöbo seemes to be succeding with their task. In the analyses of the results we have mainly used Rothsteins theori about legitimacy in democracy, also called the conditional consent by M Levi. (Less)
