Abstract (Swedish)

The thesis is an evaluation of the policy and its effects, aiming at understanding if and how the function of the association has changed as an... (More)
The Swedish policy towards ethnic associations constitutes a part of the integration policy, which has been subject to a number of changes since its introduction in the 1970s. The author of this thesis focuses on how the changes and the policy’s pendulous motion have affected the associations. She conducts interviews in order to compare the function of the association today and in the 1970s respectively. The theoretical framework for the interviews consists of Robert D. Putnam’s theories on social capital, from which the author constructs a model for understanding the function of the association. The thesis is an evaluation of the policy and its effects, aiming at understanding if and how the function of the association has changed as an effect of the changes in policy. The author uses an evaluation model focused on side effects constructed by Evert Vedung. The author finds that the changes in policy in several ways have had reversed effects considering their goals, and criticizes it for failing to recognize the association’s positive function. She further concludes that the constant changes in policy have affected the associations in a negative way and that it has naively adopted Putnams perspective by implementing it in the policy. (Less)
