The Government Offices of Sweden has commissioned Oxford Research to evaluate the Delegation for the Employment of Young People and Newly Arrived Migrants (Dua). A final evaluation report will be presented in June 2020.

A large number of interviews will be conduced with representatives of municipalities and the Swedish Public Employment Services. The interviews will investigate the implications of Dua’s work on the collaboration between different concerned actors. Both one-on-one interviews and group interviews will be carried out.

In addition to the interviews, a literature study of relevant policy and steering documents will be conducted together with an analysis of survey data on municipalities’ views on the collaboration.

A final evaluation report will be presented to the Government Offices of Sweden in June 2020. The report will ultimately seek to answer how Dua’s activities have contributed collaboration between municipalities and public employment agencies.
