Abstract
This bachelor thesis deals with the change in the Swedish government's stance on
migration politics during the refugee crisis in the autumn of 2015. In early September
Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven held a speech calling on the rest of Europe to do
more in order to help refugees. Two months later the situation had changed and the
government changed it’s migration politics to the “EU minimum” standard, identity
checks would be imposed on all models of transport to the country and the right for

government changed it’s migration politics to the “EU minimum” standard, identity
checks would be imposed on all models of transport to the country and the right for

In order to explain this change of governmental behaviour I’m using the three
revised theoretical models presented in Essence of Decision by Graham Allison and
Philip Zelikow. To explain the decisions made I’m using the Rational Actor Model,
Organizational Behaviour and Governmental politics models on the Swedish case.
Together they create a variety of alternative reasons why the government, key
organisations and political players acted as they did. In itself the Organizational
Behaviour model shows most clearly why the government acted as it did. However,
more theories and facts might be needed in the future to create a better picture of the
chain of events. (Less)
