Analys av demokratiska aspekter i en policy design process - fallstudie av 1998 års reforms policyprocess
2004 (Swedish)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

Sweden is considered to be one of the leading research nations. This image is however threatened due to that the situation for the doctoral students has worsened since the 1998-year reform. The purpose of this essay is to try to understand the political discussion about research programs among Swedish universities. My research questions are: 1. Explain why the current political discussion about the situation of doctoral students has aroused? 2. Was the 1998-year reform implemented according to democratic criteria defined in Policy Design for Democracy? 3. How does the current discussions compare with the political discussions from 1998? I have found that the most appropriate method mainly involves a qualitative study of documents of a specific event, i.e. a case study of a chosen policy design process during a limited period of time between 1997 and 1998, and also the current discussion with material from 2002 through 2004. The final conclusions of this essay are that the 1998-year reform was not conducted according to the criteria that Schneider and Ingram defined in Policy Design for Democracy. Furthermore, the political discussion that took place before the reform does not differ much from the current discussion, since involved parties believed that the efficiency of the reform caused the doctoral students weakened health and worsened working conditions. The debate that has aroused from the current research program is a result of the displeasure from the involved parties. All parties did not agree during the process of legislation, neither did interest parties like SFS, HSV and SULF, nor did political parties in opposition. Many were critical to the government proposal, but despite this fact, the controversial reform was implemented. The consequences of this process does demand action from a democratic point of view.
