This may affect the neutrality and objectivity the city officials needs to live up to. This may be problematic to our democratic society because the politicians can not control the truth of all the documents the city officials hands to them. I have come up with some suggestions that may help the politicians to control and decide if what they have been handed is the truth or a work by a self-interested official. I have also made suggestions to what future research can pick up on. (Less)

Jag vill passa på att tacka de kommunpolitiker som ställt upp att bli intervjuade. Era svar har varit oerhört mycket värda i mitt arbete!
