Abstract [en]


The directive for the Uppsala focus group pilot study was to concentrate on a study population of well-educated, Arabic-speaking, newly-arrived immigrants to Sweden. The primary objective was to gain information from this population related to economic self-support and self-responsibility in two central areas: views of incentive-based strategies; and, identification of both positive forces, momentum or drive, as well as negative forces, countercraft or hindrance.

The study’s results provide information in the two areas named above that both supports and raises challenging questions for the current orientation to labour-market focused incentives and incentive planning. 

The report is divided into the following main sections: Orientation to the study, Research process, Findings of the study, Discussion, and Lessons learned.
