English abstract
ABSTRACT This research explores how the Work Integration Center (AIC) supports unemployed immigrants in acquiring jobs and how the practical work helps immigrants in entering the labour market. It employs qualitative research approach through semi-structured interviews staff members at AIC and municipal commissioners of education and labour market in the municipality of Malmö. Its aim is to examine how governmental setup guidelines were represented in the practical work. These guiding principles of the organization are presented at the top of municipality. The findings suggest that even if the staff has no knowledge of the official measures of the integration plans, they have implemented the aims and criteria in their work with the immigrants. Work Integration Center reaches its objective of getting 65 % of their participants to become self-sufficient through work, studies or other governmental efforts. The main conclusion is that Work Integration Center in Malmö follows the guiding principles by transforming the objectives in another way, one that does not prescribe to the official measure of integration plans. The practical work on AIC is based on both individual and socially-focused efforts, which concerns support, personal survey, motivation work and integration plans for the unemployed to take part in the regular labour market. The work method is based on optimal minds (solutions-focused) theory, which means that the person owns the problem and its solution. Work Integration Center is a communal analogue to employment service office (Arbetsförmedlingen), which supports the unemployed, refugees, and immigrants to increase their possibilities of becoming self-sufficient.
