Title Från policy till praktik : en studie om organisering inom LSS-området
Author Arvidsson, Per
Date 2019
English abstract
The aim of this study is to explore what happens when the Swedish disability policy (LSS) is translated into practice. The study focuses on the organizing that takes place at a local, municipal level. It uses a qualitative approach with a mix of qualitative methods and is actively involving practitioners in the co-­‐ production of empirical data. Drawing on Actor-­‐network theory (ANT) as a conceptual framework, the analysis focuses on how actors and actants are assembled in networks. A detailed map is developed, comprising relations, formations and tensions that emerges from the efforts of translating policy into practice, Results identify the function of front-­‐line managers as a central and overloaded hub. It shows how unforeseen, unintended and undesirable effects arise as a result of both planned action programs and recurrent, not anticipated events. An ongoing professionalization, is described as a result of internal organizational conditions, rather than policy implementation or the self-­‐ interest of professions. The study illustrates the complexity and challenges of welfare organizations and the results can be used for further organizational studies as well as serve as a roadmap for organizational development within disability services.
