Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to illustrate how local authorities in the municipality of Örebro understand and explain the causes of radicalization into violent Islamism. This thesis also intends to analyse the consequences following the local authorities approach on the issue. The national coordinator against violent extremism have pointed out the key authorities in the fight against increased radicalization into violent Islamism. The study shows how police, school, social services and also the local coordinator approach the issue of increased Islamist radicalization in the municipality of Örebro. This thesis consists of qualitative interview methods, which is chosen with regard to the purpose of this thesis. The result of this study shows that the local authorities in Örebro have different views and understanding of radicalization. Further, the study found that they understood the causes of radicalization and how they explained them, differed considerably, although they sometimes spoke in the samemanner regarding the causes to violent radical Islamism. The study has revealed that three out of four local authorities have no formal definition regarding the concept of radicalization.This is likely to increase misunderstanding regarding the concept, within and in cooperation with other authorities in the fight against violent Islamist radicalisation. This might risk that the work will not be effective and threatens the rule of law for citizens.
