Abstract [en]

The idea of relocating Public authorities has been present in Sweden since the 1940s. The 4th of April this year 2019 the government decided to investigate the possibility to relocate eight more public authorities. Even though these public reforms are contemporary and widespread in both Sweden and some other European countries, very few research papers have been published about the relocation of the public sector. This study aims to explore different understanding of the possible effects of relocation of Swedish public administrations. It examines the views of public authorities and municipalities that were impacted of the decisions to relocate between 2016 and 2018. The study is carried out through textual analysis of reports written by public authorities and semi-structured interviews with representatives from municipalities. Based upon previous research, six themes concerning understandings of the effects of relocation is developed to categorize the opinions. The results demonstrate that municipalities and public administrations target different arguments and not surprisingly the municipalities are more positive towards the effects. The results however could be affected by lack of material and this study suggests further studies. Furthermore, this paper suggests that one more theme concerning legitimacy and symbolic value could be developed to capture the understandings more accurately.
