Abstract [en]

Traditionally Sweden has had a liberal migration policy and has been opened to both refugees, asylum seekers and labor immigrants. In year 2015 Sweden introduced internal border controls to stop the inflow of people by reason of the overloaded asylum system, internal borders that earlier had been open for over 60 years. The purpose of this survey is to analyze the Swedish governments’ view on migration during the years 2015 and 2016 based on ideas about migration as a universal human right and the states self-determination. This is interesting because Sweden has had a liberal migration policy, and besides, calls itself for a humanitarian superpower. The questions in this survey is first how the relationship look like in the governments’ view on migration based on universal human rights and state self-determination during the refugee crisis 2015 and 2016 and how they express themselves in the various government documents. The second question is what ideas are specifically emphasized by the government in the view of who the central actor is, the view of state borders and the view of who the state should help? The method in this survey is a qualitative actor-centered and descriptive idea and ideology analysis where dimensions are used as an analysis tool. The material used in the survey is government documents from 2015 and 2016 consisting government declarations, propositions and debate articles. The result shows that both ideas of migration as a universal human right and the state self-determination can be found in the Swedish government view on migration during this years. The first idea is most prominent in the principal view of what the government wants to do in the migration politics and the second idea is most prominent in the documents about how the government actually act, such as in law suggestions. In addition, the government’s view is also different between the dimensions of the various government documents.
