The authors discuss cooperation between immigrant associations and public institutions for adult education in Sweden. They emphasize, on the one hand, a growing importance for social inclusion of activism among immigrant associations and, on the other hand, their stigmatization, and subordinate position. Based on empirical case studies from metropolitan Stockholm, the authors argue that these associations have become more or less institutionalized in terms of new partnerships (between state, municipality and volunteer organizations) and have taken over a number of service functions from the retiring welfare state. Focusing on issues of cooperation in the area of adult education the authors argues that this partnership is unequal. Contextualising a changing institutional system of adult education and its role in social inclusion of migrants they examine problems of partnership both in terms of lack of dialogue and culturally defined hierarchy and in terms of adjustment to market exigency.
