Abstract [sv]

Syftet med uppsatsen var att studera vilka idéer som ligger till grund för 2009 års Kulturutredning och om den genomsyras av de idéer som inför de administrativa förändringar som kopplas till New Public Management. Detta undersöktes genom en kvalitativ innehållsanalys av Kulturutredningens betänkande. New Public Management (NPM) är en uppsättning idéer om hur man organiserar och styr offentlig verksamhet och har påverkat verksamheter inom bland annat vård, omsorg och skola de senaste decennierna. Dessa idéer innebär ökat fokus på uppföljning och utvärdering samt att kvalitet kopplas till kostnadseffektivitet. Man sätter upp mål, operationaliserar dem till mätbara prestationer som kopplas till finansiering. Vi har tagit ett institutionellt perspektiv på dessa idéer. Reformförslaget som presenteras kan relateras till de idéer som finns inom NPM. Aktörerna är inte medvetna om den institutionella kontexten, utan tror att de handlar rationellt. Vi menar att de har utgått från ett positivistiskt modernistiskt perspektiv.

 

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to examine the ideas behind the rethinking of Sweden’s cultural policy (Kulturutredningen) and if the ideas are related to the abstract management system "New Public Management". In the quest to do this we performed a qualitative content analysis. In the last decades, New Public Management (NPM) has been a popular style in the organization of the Swedish public service. NPM indicates a shift towards an increase of evaluations and control of the public sphere by operational, measureable goals that sets the terms for the financial allowance. In this paper we are trying to understand ideas through an institutional perspective. In our conclusion we describe the reform the rethinking suggests as under influence of NPM-ideas. The rethinking doesn’t recognize its institutional context and the influence of the NPM-ideas. Instead we are asserting that they are suggesting a rational reform. We claim that they have a perception of the world as right and wrong choices, and that one rationally can choose the right.
