Strategists in the intersection of logics. A study of job advertisements in the Swedish municipal administration
This report is a study of how public administrators responsible for horizontal perspectives in Swedish local government are handling their role as bureaucrats and political promoters. Gender equality, public health, human rights, rights of children, and environmental protection are examples of perspectives which local authorities are obliged to take into consideration when making political decisions. In order to ensure this, certain strategists are appointed who are supposed to work across all sectors promoting the values and goals of their specific perspective. The role of these strategists contains several paradoxes and complexities.
