Abstract [en]

In 2017, a report on how to increase economic growth and development in Sweden was handed over to the Minister of rural affairs Sven-Erik Bucht (s). One of the suggestions was to relocate 10 000 governmental jobs to regions in need of government presence. The purpose of this thesis is to establish the effects that a relocation of a state agency, as an political instrument, can have on the regional growth. The thesis objective is to answer the following questions: What positive and negative effects does agency relocation produce? and Is there a connection between a state agency’s relocation and regional economic growth? To answer these questions a model was constructed and filled with the effect findings and then related to the presumptions to economic growth. The formed hypothesis that long-term positive effects will increase growth was proven right, although it is probably a weak correlation. Conclusively, relocation of state agencies is a debatable instrument. The result of this study is that it is very expensive and costly in the short term but can be a success and prosperous in the long run for the organization, the employees and its surrounding environment.
