520    The aim of this study is to analyze the concept of 
       antiracism and explore what characterizes the kind of 
       antiracism that the empirical examples presented in this 
       study represent. The empirical examples are instances of 
       what I call antiracist actors. They are rooted in civil 
       society, but also have strong connections with the 
       government through government funding. The empirical data 
       has been gathered through both qualitative and 
       quantitative methods, mainly in the form of a survey and 
       interviews. In order to explore the antiracist actors I 
       have focused on three themes: (1) the shapes and forms of 
       racism, (2) antiracism as a phenomenon, and (3) antiracism
       as a social arena. Through these themes I have gathered 
       information about how the antiracist actors interpret 
       their activities and the context in which they are 
       working. On the subject of the shapes and forms of racism,
       I establish that racism is a concept that is hard to 
       define. The antiracist actors lack a common language 
       regarding racism, which affects the antiracist rhetoric. 
       Regarding antiracism as a phenomenon, I conclude that the 
       antiracist strategies mainly consist of three components: 
       (1) knowledge is used as a strategic instrument internally
       to strengthen the volunteers, (2) knowledge is spread 
       externally to increase awareness of racism, and (3) the 
       antiracist actors deconstruct racist beliefs when opposing
       racist opinions. Finally, I research antiracism as a 
       social arena and study civil society and theories about 
       social movements in order to explore organizational 
       aspects of the antiracist actors. Using Alberto Meluccis’ 
       social movement theories, there is some evidence to 
       support the thesis that the antiracist actors could be 
       defined as part of an antiracist movement. However, 
       overall there are stronger arguments to suggest the 
       opposite, mainly since the antiracist actors are not in 
       opposition to one or more adversaries. Instead they work 
       with target groups, sometimes targeting the general public,
       sometimes specific groups like children in a certain 
       school. The main conclusion from my study in this respect 
       is that the antiracist actors are part of what I call 
       association-driven antiracism. The associationdriven 
       antiracism is characterized by non-violent methods and the
       antiracist actors do not focus on racist adversaries, 
       instead they work with target groups trying to influence 
       them in an antiracist way. The association-driven 
       antiracism secures its continuity through networks, since 
       many activities are project-based and only last for a 
       limited period of time. Also, the antiracist actors are 
       not representatives of particular political parties, 
       instead they gather around the question at hand, 
       antiracism. The antiracist actors within the association-
       driven antiracism are in close collaboration with the 
       government and partly finance their activities with 
       government funding. This collaboration can be explained as
       a positive steering process, the rulers (the government) 
       and those who are ruled (the antiracist actors) agree on 
       an antiracist ideology and work in the same direction
