This paper is based upon long-term participant observation, interviews and document study. It discusses the implementation process of diversity policy within large public organisations. It shows how history, context and culture create an interacting and fluid field of tensions which impact on the implementation of diversity policy. These findings contradict both with the more standard approaches which generally base themselves on a static concept of culture and with the traditional approaches which are based upon a target-group oriented approach.
