Abstract [en]

This study investigates differences in approaches to public sector relocation reforms in Denmark and Sweden, using a comparative public administration research design. These countries are both part of a Nordic administrative model, but important differences in their respective administrative traditions exist. Previous research on public sector relocation shows a varying array of arguments and approaches to such reforms used in different European countries over time. Building on the experiences from such research, the study aims to map how public service relocation reforms are conceived and designed. The objects of comparison are a Swedish relocation reform from 2005 and a Danish relocation reform from 2015. The respective approaches in Denmark and Sweden are found to differ on most of the studied variables. Using neo-institutional theory, explanations for these differences, and the few similarities that are found, are attributed to path dependency, mimetic isomorphism, and the internal logic of the reforms themselves. The differences in administrative traditions are not found to have impacted the reforms.
