This thesis studies the National Labour Market Board (AMS) and the role it played during the Assyrian/Syrian migration during the 1960s and 1970s. AMS was created at the end of the 1940s with full employment as its main goal. During the 1950s and 1960s this seemingly worked perfectly and AMS had considerable influence on the migration patterns to Sweden. However this changed during the 1970s and a combination of events turned the Swedish economy to a decline. At this point in time a relatively great number of Assyrians/Syrians refugees started to migrate to Sweden. The thesis uses Bo Rothstein’s writings about Sweden as a corporate state as a starting point. Rothstein argues that the “corporate spirit” that had greatly influenced the Swedish politics since the 1930s started to decline during the 1980s in all sectors. I argue that the Assyrian/Syrian migration in the middle of the 1970s is the start of this decline in the labour market sector. I also argue that AMS influential position on the migration field ends, or at least greatly decreases as a result of the Assyrian/Syrian migration.
