Summary, in English

As welfare states are increasingly challenged and replaced by welfare

mix models, new ideas about the functions of non-profit and voluntary organisations NPVOs) provoke political conflicts that should be reflected in research. This paper explores the significance of political and ideological dimensions to present Changes in the Swedish welfare state regarding NPVOs as welfare services providers. Investigating both national and local level, the study addresses political as well as practical implications of the reframing of NPVOs as service providers rather than being associated with a voice function. The article shows extensive differences between national and local levels as contentious ideological cleavages at national level are dormant in local level politics. Variations in the way relations to NPVOs are structured in practice at local level appear related to factors other than political dimensions. The findings support the development of an analytical framework that reflects political dimensions and allow for empirical focus that includes national and local level politics and practices.
