The Welfare state as a Common : A study of sustainable migration policies. (English)
Abstract [en]

In the end of 2015 the Swedish government made a complete turnaround regarding its former generous migration policy. Through examination of previous and recent decisions made by the swedish government, this study aims to contribute to a better understanding of this unique situation. It does so by applying Elinor Ostrom’s theory of sustainable management of common resources onto the swedish universal welfare modell. By classifying whether the policies can be considered as steps in a sustainable direction or not, the essey seeks to find whether Ostrom’s theory, former soleley applied on natural resource pools, is compatible with sheer welfare policies, in this case migration, thus offering a better understanding of the phenomenon. The study finds that even though the theory very well could be applied to the said policy area, it would be done with no regard of the ever so important moral and ideological values which characterizes the universal welfare model.
