Abstract english

Utgör lokala eliter i Sverige välintegrerade sociala enheter, eller återfinns de i flera socialt åtskilda elitfraktioner? Är kvinnor inom den lokala eliten inte bara underrepresenterade till antal, utan även strukturellt missgynnade på grund av sitt kön? Och i vilken mån bidrar elitpersonernas informella umgänge, i till exempel Rotary-klubbar, till deras övergripande integration och sociala kapital?
The study applies network analysis to empirically study the integration of local elites in four Swedish municipalities. We focus particularly on the existence of elite fractions, the structural representation of women, and the role of informal ties for integration.
