Twice during the last fifty years these perceptions has changed so much that it is justified to call it a paradigmatic shifts of perception. Once sometimes in or around the early sixties in connection with workforce immigration and once in the nineteis in connection with globalisation. And thus has Swedish migration policy changed. At the same time the fundamental ideology of the swedish state has remained the same. That is, an ideology mainly based on self interest and survival. (Less)
