Abstract
The aim of following thesis is to deepen the understanding of the decision to re-inforce border control at Swedish borders in a time referred to as the “refugee crisis”. The situation which prevailed was described as being an issue of safety, a threat to the common order. This is a study of the government’s motives and aims behind the measures, and the consequences which arose from it. Inspired by theories on political decision making and the welfare state, the motives have been analyzed consuming intentional analysis as method. According to the rational choice theory, if a rational and well thought through decision was made, motives should agree with expected outcome. Furthermore, expected outcome should agree with actual consequences.... (More)

Inspired by theories on political decision making and the welfare state, the motives have been analyzed consuming intentional analysis as method. According to the rational choice theory, if a rational and well thought through decision was made, motives should agree with expected outcome. Furthermore, expected outcome should agree with actual consequences. The outcomes of the border control are therefore analyzed in this thesis using descriptive data.
Moreover, the purpose is to find an answer to why the government made the decision to reintroduce border controls in the fall of 2015, what their wanted out-come of the measure was and whether the government’s justifications agree with the outcome or not. The result of the study is a story regarding the government’s struggle with the dilemma of the refugee versus the welfare state. (Less)
