Abstract [en]

This study report on the sociological research carried out in the Swedish context, within the transnational research project "Forms of exclusion and integration - A sociological analysis of the relationship of religious value systems upon the formation of a European identity" (in Germany, France, Italy, Greece and Sweden).



The analysis is specifically oriented towards the roles different religious and humanitarian organisations play in contemporary multicultural society.



A multidimensional and qualitative approach was used to analyse third sector organisations in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmö, Umeå and Karlstad.Ê Among the organisations chosen some are considered as more "traditional", others as more "innovative". Some are quite old, others quite new. All organisations though were engaged in a more outward manner in social voluntary work. A total number of 74 respondents were interviewed.



The study gives some contextual facts about Sweden and a brief overview of some demographic, socio-economic and political characteristics with relevance for the existence and development of the welfare state. The study report on organisational issues as decision processes, recruitment, action space, networks and values. The major issue is to describe organisational attitudes towards the concept "European Identity" and identify the range and characteristics the local network these social voluntary organisations (NGO's or NPO's) are part of.



Per Echeverri has a PhD in business administration and is working as a researcher in services marketing and organisational communication. Along with this he carry out some third sector research. His academic work is linked to Karlstad University, Service Research Center. E-mail: Per.Echeverri@kau.se
