Running established Buddhism and Muslim organization in the municipality of Karlstad : The operatives perception of running an religious organization (English)
I wanted to focus this essay on the operative’s perspective of running religious organizations in the city of Karlstad and to see positive and negative aspects of their day-to-day life working with their organization, following up with a comparison of the difference and the similarities between those groups. After delimitating which groups I was going to examine, I implemented a qualitative study of four people, from two different religious groups, whom I performed interviews with. My method of performing these interviews and understanding the perspective of the informants, I had a semi structured interview guide along with a recent study that was opting for similar conclusions, only in a different county and with different input perspective. The result of my study showed a difference in establishment of their region but with a lot of similarities in problems with their religious and structural premises. Consequently, the difference of the organizations size and membership does not mean that they are treated different by the community, rather that they share a need for structural upgrades and contributions from the state.
