Life at the border : The effect of Norwegian presence on the Strömstad border district (English)
Abstract [sv]

Gränsers betydelse har både suddats ut och aktualiseras i och med en ökad grad av globalisering och mobilitet. Den svensk-norska gränsen har i stora drag legat fast i nästan 350 år och under tiden har kulturella och nationella identiteter skapats. Genom sitt läge vid riksgränsen påverkas Strömstad av nationella händelser på ett helt annat sätt än Sverige i stort samtidigt som det även finns ett starkt inflytande från en annan stats nationella politik.

Syftet med studien har varit att undersöka den norska närvarons påverkan på Strömstad ur ett socialt och kulturellt perspektiv. Det första man ser är effekter av ekonomisk art då Strömstad toppar listor för både turism och handel, men i förlängningen ser vi även en påverkan i hur strömstadsborna ser på sig själva och sin kommun.

Abstract [en]

Increasing globalization and mobility has reduced as well as enhanced the significance of borders. The Swedish-Norwegian border has barely changed in the last 350 years. During this time both national and cultural identities have been created. Strömstad’s location at the national border creates a situation where it is affected by national events in a different way than most of Sweden and at the same time Strömstad is strongly influenced by the national politics of another state.

The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of the Norwegian presence on Strömstad from a social and cultural perspective. Most noticeable are the effects in the financial sector; however effects can also be seen in the way the borderers see themselves as well as their community.
