Research in this thesis show indications of discrimination in the recruitment process on grounds of ethnicity on the labor market in Sweden. It occurs both intentional and unintentional excluding in corporate structure. Continues discrimination can lead to alienation and exclusion from society and routines and this thesis has questioned if human rights due diligence is a promising way to frame and advance the fight against social exclusion on grounds of ethnicity on the labor market in Sweden. There are today in Sweden various methods to prevent discrimination and exclusion such as practical strategies in the recruitment process as well as collaborations between corporations and the State to help vulnerable groups who experience challenges in taking part in the labor market and to integrate.

When answering if human rights due diligence could be a promising way to frame and advance the fight against social exclusion in Sweden it has to be taken in to account that the UNGP does not ask corporations to do more than respect human rights. Any positive action would go beyond what is requested in the Framework of Respect, Protect, Remedy and human rights due diligence is there for not a promising way to frame and advance the fight against social exclusion in Sweden. As presented in this thesis, a solution to social exclusion is participation which needs positive measures for any effective changes to occur and human rights due diligence is therefore not a positive way to proceed.
