Abstract (Swedish)
The purpose of this thesis is to find out to what extent Sweden’s new liberal approach towards labour migration is a case of Europeanization. The intention is also to illustrate the gradual Europeanization in the area of labour migration and discuss the new paradigm shift in favour of labour migration. Managed migration is the new ‘catch word’ where the focus primarily is on skilled labour. A top- down Europeanization will be applied. The theory is carefully chosen for my research object. A typology from the theory will help me measure the extent of Europeanization. It will be an explaining case study with a theory consuming approach where Sweden will be in focus. The material will consist of both primary and secondary sources. The... (More)

A typology from the theory will help me measure the extent of Europeanization. It will be an explaining case study with a theory consuming approach where Sweden will be in focus. The material will consist of both primary and secondary sources. The analysis shows that there is a gradual vertical as well as horizontal Europeanization process in the area of labour migration. Furthermore, the study demonstrates that Sweden to some extent has been Europeanized, yet with its own touch. However it is not likely that the theory can explain Sweden’s change towards the new rules for labour immigration. (Less)
