2017 (English)In: Reimagineering the Nation: essays on twenty-first-century Sweden / [ed] Aleksandra Ålund, Carl-Ulrik Schierup, Anders Neergaard, Frankfurt am Main: Peter Lang Publishing Group, 2017, 258-284 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Controversies over citizenship and belonging have lately become pivotal to swedish politics. the growing strength of the extreme right party, the Swedish Democrats' reimagination of Sweden, indicates, the authors argue, Sweden's shift from being "racial" to a "racist" state. Analysing women and migrants within the party, the chapter highlights the paradoxical politics of a political programme that is anti-feminist and racist, but seek support from (some) women and (some) migrants.
