Abstract

Whose responsibility? The organization of teaching in Swedish for Immigrants and the qualifications of teachers, 1960–1998. The importance of people with a foreign background learning Swedish and establishing themselves at the labour market, in order to become part of the society, has for a long time been a political goal. Education in Swedish for immigrants and labor market measures have in this context been seen as important components. Nevertheless, the following article shows that the organization and management of education in Swedish for Immigrants and the competence requirements for teachers working in the field, have been an unregulated history with many temporary solutions and without any consensus from the actors involved. The purpose is to investigate why and how it comes about that the responsibility for the educational has varied over time.
