Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to analyze the level of the uniform way of interpretation from the Swedish asylum officers at the Swedish Migration Board, of asylum investigations for asylum seekers who claim sexual orientation as reason of refuge. The interviews with the officers were analyzed in relation to the policy document with investigation- guidelines and methodology.

The results of the study showed that there was a uniform way to conduct asylum investigations and interpret the policy document, this despite that the document was found to be ambiguous in certain aspects. The uniform interpretation of the asylum officers was explained by the knowledge and understanding that exists within institutional organizations. This because the asylum officers at the Swedish Migration Board might have similar experience, knowledge and also the demands related to asylum investigations.

The uniform interpretation demonstrated a strong similar common understanding of investigative work within the agency. This suggests a certainty that the investigations are carried out in a similar way regardless of which asylum officer within the institution conducting the investigation which indicates a well-functioning “rule of law” for the asylum seekers. 

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att analysera graden av samstämmighet av Svenska Migrationsverkets asylhandläggares tolkning utav asylutredningar för de som åberopat flyktingstatus för deras sexuella läggning. Intervjuerna med handläggarna analyserades i relation till Migrationsverkets styrdokument med riktlinjer och metodpunkter till utförandet av utredningen. Resultatet i studien visade att det fanns ett enhetligt sätt att utföra asylutredningar och tolka styrdokumentet trots att styrdokumentet visats vara tvetydigt i vissa punkter. Den samstämmiga tolkningen förklarades genom den kunskap och förståelse som finns inom institutionella organisationer. Detta eftersom asylhandläggarna på Migrationsverket kan ha likartad erfarenhet, kunskap och även krav kopplade till asylutredningar.

Studienss resultat visar på en likartad gemensam uppfattning om utredningsarbetet inom myndigheten. Detta visar på att utredningar utförs på ett likartat sätt oberoende av vilken person på institutionen som utför utredningen vilket indikerar på en rättssäkerhet för de asylsökande.
