Abstract [en]

In order to reach the social democratic vision of the welfare society, the old communities based on parishes needed to become bigger entities. Hence, the Swedish government issued a reform to shape new, bigger communities that would be able to guarantee the citizens a part of the welfare. This reform shock the old identities all over Sweden, which led to certain amounts of conflict towards the state, within communities as well as between communities. This essay has focused on the implementation of the reform, where Aneboda, Asa and Bergs communities became one community - Lammhults. Issues regarding identity, centre and periphery, political culture, conflict and consensus are lifted in the process towards one, economically sound community. The result showed that the level of conflict varied among the different communities, where Aneboda fought the hardest to maintain their independence, as Asa and Berg tried to, without success, include Tolg into the new community. This was a conflict between the countryside and station society, where no-one wanted to change the old ways and cast aside the old identities.
