Abstract [sv]

Den första januari 1994 infördes lag (1993:387) om stöd och service till vissa funktionshindrade. Ett av lagens syften var att minska de skillnader som fanns mellan olika kommuners stöd till funktionshindrade. Trots detta syfte finns det fortfarande stora skillnader mellan olika kommuner i det stöd som ges till funktionshindrade. Vissa kommuner ger upp till tio gånger mer stöd än andra kommuner. Uppsatsen baseras på den litteraturstudie som jag har gjort med syftet att undersöka vad som kan påverka att personer med funktionshinder får det stöd som de har rätt till. Fem olika studier som på något sätt tar upp rättssäkerhet i handläggning och beslut för personer med funktionshinder kom att granskas under litteraturstudien. Studiens resultat är att implementeringen av lagen inte har lyckats på grund av vaga och mångtydiga begrepp men även på grund av handläggarnas handlingsfrihet att tolka lagens begrepp som de själva vill. Studien kommer fram till att detta leder till att förutsägbarheten och därav rättssäkerheten inom handläggning och beslut enligt LSS är låg. 

Abstract [en]

On the first of January 1994 a new law was introduced in Sweden, Act on Support and Service for Disabled. The aim of the act was to ensure that people with disabilities got the help and support they need to live a normal life and to be able to live like others. Previous to this act there was great differences in support given to people with disabilities between the municipalities. The act on Support and Service for Disabled was meant to reduce these differences and ensure that people with disabilities got the help and support they needed, independently on where in Sweden they are living. Despite these aims the difference between the municipalities remains. This study examine why these differences still remains and what may affect social workers in their decision-making. It is based on a literature review of five different studies that regard legal rights in administration of this law. The result of the study is that the differences can be traced back to vague definitions in the law and that social workers define the act differently. The result also shows that these subjective assessments lead to low predictability of the decisions under the act on Support and Service for Disabled.
