The Absurdity of Bureaucracy

Nina Holm Vohnsen

Manchester University Press

In this chapter the reader is introduced to the municipal and ministerial reality respectively. While introducing some of the central people in the book the chapter focuses in the genesis of Active – Back Sooner. ‘Where does a policy come from?’ is the central question addressed in the chapter. That ‘it’ comes from no one place, that ‘it’ has from the onset no unity but rather is a container of discreet agendas held momentarily together by means of the unlike materials of statistics and hopes is the conclusion the chapter reaches.
