Abstract
The aim of this study is to investigate the implementation process of a political action in Malmö. The empirical case is a recently ended ”area-programme” in the city-district of Segevång that had as its main objective to social sustainability in the area.

The study is based on theories of implementation such as the top-down and the bottom-up perspectives, the latter of which is exemplified with Lipsky’s theory of ”street-level bureaucrats”. The most important source of inspiration for both the method and analysis of this work is Lennart Lundquist’s theory about the three conditions ”understanding”, ”ability” and ”will”, and their effect on policymakers and officials. By interviewing eight persons, differently involved in the area-... (More)
The aim of this study is to investigate the implementation process of a political action in Malmö. The empirical case is a recently ended ”area-programme” in the city-district of Segevång that had as its main objective to social sustainability in the area.

The study is based on theories of implementation such as the top-down and the bottom-up perspectives, the latter of which is exemplified with Lipsky’s theory of ”street-level bureaucrats”. The most important source of inspiration for both the method and analysis of this work is Lennart Lundquist’s theory about the three conditions ”understanding”, ”ability” and ”will”, and their effect on policymakers and officials. By interviewing eight persons, differently involved in the area- programme – politicians as well as officials – I arrive at the result that the greatest impact on the implementation process in the present case is the factor understanding. The lack of understanding by collaborating actors at times, is a clear example of this.
This study contributes to theories of policy-implementation. Futhermore, it provides practical knowledge concerning the implementation of a local political action programme. (Less)
