    Readiness or resistance?: Newly arrived adult migrants' experiences, meaning making, and learning in Sweden2017Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is about newly arrived adult migrants’ meaning making and learning in Swedish society during the two years’ introduction period, after they have received the residence permit. I have specifically studied Arabic speaking adults’ meaning making and learning, by carrying out observations and individual in-depth interviews with 12 migrants. The introduction period consists mainly of three so called introduction measures; the civic orientation course, Swedish for immigrants (SFI), and different work related activities, such as internship at different work places.

    The results show that etablering is about shaping the newly arrived adult migrants into ”good” citizens, through the introduction measures, among other things in the civic orientation course, which is regulated through the policy documents, and which so to say provides meaning to the newly arrived. The “good” citizen has some specific characteristics, which, roughly, are that he or she is independent (and advocates individuality), free, equality thinking, secularized, law-abiding (which includes being honest), responsible, and a “good” parent. These characteristics are expressed in different ways in the civic orientation course, for instance through the course material. The Swedish society is described as something desirable, and different from what is implied to be ”Arabic” values and ways of thinking. The idea of the “good” citizen appears to aim at constructing the adult migrants’ (and their families’) identity, something which many of the study’s respondents make a resistance to.

    As concerns the migrant’s new experiences, it is, for example, those which the migrant get through the contact with the Swedish Public Employment Service (SPES) that affect the meaning making in the new society. The meaning which most of the respondents have made of the SPES’s measures for them is that this authority only offers “prepackaged” solutions, and does not provide the help or support that they need. Also the experiences which the migrant has in the civic orientation course, and the meaning which ”old” migrants give to him or her, play a role when he or she makes meaning of Sweden and Swedes, and of his or her new life situation. Further, it has been shown that it is those experiences that the adult individual has been socialized through, and those which he or she has gained through work or education in his or her country of origin, which affect his or her meaning making in Sweden. It is mostly values which concern child upbringing and religion that lead to a certain understanding and construction of one’s new life. These values, when related to the values which are included in the ”good” citizen idea, also lead to either a resistance or a readiness towards the meaning giving that is embedded in the ”good” citizen notion.

    Colombianer på bioduken: Representationen av tre Hollywoodproducerade actionfilmer2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the thesis was to analyse three action films; Collateral Damage from 2002; Clear and Present Danger from 1994; and Scarface from 1983, in order to see how Colombians are represented in these movies.The action genre comprises of different stereotypes where the hero and the villain are represented in conjunction to each other. The analysis is about the way the films content and form are used to uphold the representation of Colombians, but also the villain and the hero more generally.

    Critical Discourse Analysis was used, as main method, and the concepts of denotation and connotation guided the analysis. . The main conclusion is that the three movies reproduced an already established collective stereotype of Latin Americans, stereotype that includes both Colombia and Colombians.

    The Feeling of Migration: Narratives of Queer Intimacies and Partner Migration2016Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation analyzes narratives of queer partner migration, that is, a family-tie migration in which one of the partners of a relationship has migrated in order for the partners to be together, and where the partners queer the migration in the sense that they have a non-normative sexuality and/or gender identity. The purpose of the study is to examine how queer partner migrants and their Swedish partners experience the migration process – which continues also once the administrative process has been completed – by analyzing the emotions and feelings that emerge in the process. The study is a contribution to research on privileged migration as well as intimate migration.

    The focus is the queer partner migration relationship, and what emotions and feelings ‘do’ to this relationship, but also how emotions and feelings structure the migration process. The study analyzes the work three different emotions – love, loss, and belonging – do in these migration processes, and how this work is described in the participant narratives. Migrant participants have migrated from different parts of the world (Africa, Europe, Latin America, and North America), making it possible to analyze what emotions and feelings do in this particular migration process from the point of view of nationality and, in particular, proximity to ‘Western-ness,’ race, and language as well as how privileges connected to these positions come to matter in the process.

    The dissertation is an ethnographic interview study in which both migrants and Swedish partners have been interviewed. The interview material consists of a combination of couple interviews and individual interviews.

    By using affect theories and the concept of queer phenomenology, the dissertation shows how the work that emotions and feelings do in migration processes is connected to gender identity, sexual identity, race and whiteness, nationality, perceived proximity to Western-ness, class, language, and the migration narrative the migrating partner is (or is not) written into by way of the country they have migrated from. This is analyzed in relation to the theoretical frameworks of entanglement, homonationalism, and intimate citizenship.

    The analysis shows that emotions and feelings structure the migration process for both more privileged and less privileged migrants, but in different ways. The understanding of who ‘is’ a migrant, and the preparedness for the feelings that arise in a migration process, are tied to the positions mentioned above and the privileges these positions give, or do not give, the migrant access to. By focusing on emotions and feelings and what these do, the study also illustrates how the migration process affects the non-migrating partner as this partner engages in emotional labour to ‘make’ the migrating partner ‘Swedish.’ Through their the migrating partner, the non-migrating partner is also aligned in a way that makes them a little bit less ‘Swedish,’ contributing to the non-migrating partner being ‘stopped’ in ways they have usually not experienced before. The study further shows how migration processes produces inequality, and the difficulties that arise when the couples try to live up to the Swedish ideal of the equal relationship.

    The interviews are analyzed as narratives, and both narratives and storytelling are important throughout the dissertation, not only as the method used in the analysis but as the form of the dissertation, making it a kind of super structure organizing the writing. Writing (how to write accessibly and interesting) and reading (how to write in order to invite an open and active reading) are important aspects of the dissertation.

    Språket - en väg till identiteten: - En kvalitativ studie om pedagogers förhållningssätt till elever med svenska som andraspråk2008Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studien tar sin utgångspunkt i barnkonventionen och skolans styrdokument. I fokus är pedagogens uppdrag att stödja elevens trygghetskänsla och självbild genom ett medvetet arbetssätt där elevens bakgrund, kultur och språk uppmärksammas. Ett delsyfte är att undersöka eventuella olikheter i pedagogers förhållningssätt, till elevers kulturella bakgrund och modersmål som en resurs i undervisningen. Studien tar stöd i tidigare forskning som visar på ett tydligt samband mellan pedagogens förhållningssätt, elevens identitetsutveckling och skolresultat. Den teoretiska bakgrunden finner vi bland annat i Mead (1976) som beskriver hur signifikanta andra (till exempel en lärare) påverkar identitetsutvecklingen hos eleven genom att individen ser sig själv som en spegelbild, genom andra. Studien är en kvalitativ undersökning som vi genomfört genom deltagande observationer kompletterade med en mindre enkät. Vår undersökningsgrupp består av sju pedagoger fördelat på två olika skolor, i Norrköpings kommun, med tillgång till olika ekonomiska resurser. Resultatet visar på olikheter i pedagogernas förhållningssätt på båda skolorna. I enkätsvaren framkom att de flesta pedagogerna hade relativt god kunskap om fördelarna med att uppmärksamma elevernas kulturella bakgrund och språk för att skapa goda förutsättningar för lärande och identitetsutveckling för eleverna med svenska som andraspråk. Dock visade observationerna att pedagogerna inte genomför detta i praktiken. Vår slutsats av studien är att skillnaden mellan pedagogers olika arbetssätt främst beror på den enskilda pedagogens attityder och intresse.

    Inclusion of immigrants -- effects of diffent kinds of partnerships2008In: Partnership: As a Stragegy for Social Innovation and Sustainable Change / [ed] Lennart Svensson, Barbro Nilsson, Stockholm: Santérus Academic Press , 2008, 1, p. 159-172Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Is partnership as an organisational principle a way to overcome the limitations of project-organisation and its focus on short-term outcomes? Or is the interest in partnership organisations only an expression of a trend or a fashion in the growing market for organisational development in complex situations? In this book 14 scholars get new data and make careful analysis of the partnership organisation both in theory and in practice. They analyse the effectiveness of the partnership organisation in implementing changes and innovation with long-term effects rather than short-term results. The ambition is to address practical dilemmas and problems in the partnership organisation by using different theoretical perspectives - theories about organisational learning, strategies for change, power and empowerment, gender analysis, governance and participation etc. The research presented is valuable in order to achieve deeper understanding of the pros and cons with the partnership organisation. When can it be useful? What kind of problems can be addressed? Which conditions are necessary if the partnership model is to be used? Editors are Lennart Svensson, professor of sociology at the University of Linkoping, Sweden and Barbro Nilsson, Ph.D. and lecturer of pedagogic at the Institution of Behaviour Science learning at the University of Linkoping. Also contributing are Ken Caplan, Leda Stott, Erik Lindhult, Ingela Malqvist, Marianne Parmsund, Ann-Christine Larsson, Maria Bogren, Sofia Wistus, Ragnar Andersson, Hanna Westberg, Anette Scoppetta and Gun Hedlund.

    Vad betyder det att inte känna sig hemma där man är född och uppvuxen?: om mellanförskap i dagens Sverige2012In: Om ras och vithet i det samtida Sverige / [ed] Tobias Hübinette, Helena Hörnfeldt, Fataneh Farahani, & René León Rosales, Tumba/Botkyrka: Mångkulturellt Centrum , 2012, p. 37-42Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Det finns rasistiska strukturer i dagens Sverige- Men flertalet av oss blundar gärna för både vithetens privilegier och den diskriminering som icke-vita svenskar utsätts för. Vår fysiska kropp påverkar hur vi blir bemötta, betraktade och behandlade. Därför måste vi börja tala om ras. Först då kan vi förstå de samhällsproblem som handlar om vardagsrasism, segregation och diskriminering.

    Med inspiration från kritisk ras- och vithetsforskning skärskådar tolv forskare med varierande akademisk bakgrund dagens Sverige.

    Dessutom berättar medlemmar i Mellanförskapet, författare, journalister och andra om sina erfarenheter av att leva som icke-vita svenskar i dagens Sverige.

    Kurdish Guests or Syrian Refugees?: Negotiating Displacement, Identity and Belonging in the Kurdistan Region2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    With the conflict ongoing in Syria since 2011, many Syrian Kurds have been forced to leave their homes to seek safety and security in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI). Their displacement to KRI is a distinctive experience of migration as it has happened within an intra-ethnic setting of Syrian Kurds, as refugees, encountering Iraqi Kurds, as hosts. Sharing ethnic identification and imagination of a historical homeland but holding different nationalities, has turned identity and belonging into sites of contestation between the refugees and the hosts. Within this intra-ethnic setting of displacement, the study has investigated the construction of home and politics of identity and belonging among the refugees in relation to protection regimes and forms of inclusion and exclusion. This has been done through a content analysis of relevant policy and regulations for refugees in KRI and Iraq and a thematic analysis of individual narrative interviews with the refugees themselves. Research results from the policy analysis have indicated the lack of a comprehensive protection regime in Iraq and KRI, and the deployment of the ‘guests’ rhetoric towards the refugees as a responsibility evasion mechanism. Results from the interviews have revealed that home for the participants is plural, and it connects to Syria and Kurdistan to varying degrees. Their identity as Kurds is contested when their Syrianness is evoked with boundaries limiting their recognition to be both Syrian and Kurdish. Similarly, their belonging is challenged with their social position as refugees and their legal belonging to Syria. With this, they get involved into a continuum of politics of identity and belonging ranging between the situational demonstration of their Syrian identity and the role of ‘the successful Syrian refugee’, and the accentuation of their attachment to Kurdishness through belonging to Rojava. These politics have been discussed as reflecting a process of reconstructing Syrian Kurdish identity in the light of the experience of displacement and the intra-ethnic encounter. Contextualizing the research results in a wider perspective, it is argued that they carry further implications related to the Kurdish struggle with identity and belonging, not only in KRI, but in all the other parts of Kurdistan.

    Att skapa en invandrare: Hjältar, offer och förbrytare2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studien bygger på en analys av svenska tidningars skrivelser kring verksamheten Sharaf Hjältar, en verksamhet tillsatt av den feministiska organisationen Elektra. I denna studie visar jag på hur bland annat invandrare, kultur samt kvinnoförtryck som sker bland svenska invandrare gestaltas i svensk media. Fokus har legat på att visa hur media, genom att stereotypifiera och stigmatisera kulturer, beteenden och identiteter skapar en bild av invandrare i det svenska samhället. Studien visar hur invandrare framställs som bland annat en homogen grupp som fungerar i kollektiva former samt hur invandrare sätts i en stark motsatsbild till ”svenskar” och ”svenskhet”. I studien behandlas således även konstruktionen av ”vi” och ”dom”.

    Viele Welten des Alterns? Ältere Migranten im alternden Deutschland2012 (ed. 1)Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [de]

    In der Alternsforschung wurden Menschen mit Migrationshintergrund bisher weitgehend ausgeblendet und in der Migrationsforschung fanden ältere Menschen kaum Beachtung. Angesichts des zunehmenden Anteils Älterer in der Migrantenbevölkerung wird eine Verknüpfung der beiden Forschungszweige aber immer wichtiger. Das vorliegende Buch widmet sich der Auseinandersetzung mit dem Altern unter Migrationsbedingungen und der Lebensqualität älterer Migrantinnen und Migranten. Auf der Basis theoretischer Reflexionen, empirischer Befunde und politischer Überlegungen bietet der vorliegende Band erstmals einen fundierten Überblick über den aktuellen Kenntnis- und Diskussionsstand im Schnittfeld der beiden Forschungsgebiete.

    Viele Welten des Alterns?: Ältere Migrantinnen und Migranten in der Alter(n)s- und Migrationsforschung.

    Abstract [de]

    Bedeutung und Bedingungen des Alterns haben sich in den westlichen Industrieländern in den vergangenen Jahrzehnten stark gewandelt. Altern als Veränderung über den Lebensverlauf und Altern als Lebensphase sind vielfältiger geworden. Zu dieser wachsenden Heterogenität trägt auch die Zunahme von Älteren mit Migrationshintergrund bei. Während in Wissenschaft und Öffentlichkeit die Aufmerksamkeit für die Vielfalt der Wege in die Lebensphase Alter und die Verschiedenartigkeit der Lebenssituationen älterer Menschen in den vergangenen Jahren merklich zugenommen hat, rücken ältere Migrantinnen und Migranten bisher noch selten ins Zentrum des Interesses. Sie werden zwar aufgrund steigender Zahlen und Bevölkerungsanteile zunehmend wahrgenommen. Das Forschungsfeld ‚Ältere Migranten‘ im Schnittpunkt von Alter(n)s- und Migrationsforschung kann jedoch noch nicht als etabliert gelten – weder in Deutschland, noch in anderen europäischen Ländern, die eine ähnliche demografische Entwicklung erleben.

    Informal Recruitment Methods and Disadvantages of Immigrants in the Swedish Labour Market2008In: Journal of ethnic and migration studies, ISSN 1369-183X, E-ISSN 1469-9451, Vol. 34, no 3, p. 411-430Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the probability of success for different methods of finding employment in the Swedish labour market, in times of both economic growth and decline. Existing West European studies on hiring processes have not allowed researchers to examine the relationship between job contacts and wage income among various groups of immigrants. Since our dataset is sufficiently large, this article examines job-finding strategies and labour market outcomes for individuals within two large groups, immigrants and natives. By studying those who have been in their current jobs for one year or less, the paper investigates to what extent both natives and immigrants use their social networks to find a job, and how informal job-finding methods are related to the rate of return in the Swedish labour market for the job secured, in terms of hourly wage. The findings show that immigrants, compared to natives, are less likely to be able to find jobs through informal methods and that jobs found through informal methods do not pay as well for immigrants as for natives.

    The Distribution and Return of Social Capital: Evidence from Sweden2007In: European Societies: The Official Journal of the European Sociological Association, ISSN 1461-6696, E-ISSN 1469-8307, Vol. 9, no 3, p. 383-407Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper studies the role of social capital in the status attainment process and examines the link between the hiring process and the potential pool of social capital embedded in a person's network. The analysis is based on a sample of people newly employed by the municipal services in Malmö, the third largest city in Sweden. Jobs in this sector of labour market are mainly low-paid, and are dominated by women and immigrants. The position generator method is used to measure social capital, understood as assets captured by individuals in social networks. The findings demonstrate that access to social capital is positively related to work experience, a higher educational level, having a partner, and active membership of voluntary associations. It is also apparent that being an immigrant is associated with a substantial social capital deficit. Regarding the return on capital, the results show that both human capital and social capital were rewarded with higher wages and more adequate jobs. Furthermore, we found that social capital is associated with better labour market outcomes, whether or not respondents reported that they obtained their current jobs using informal job-search methods. Results also show similar returns on access to social capital for natives and immigrants.

    Unequal Opportunities: The Impact of Social Capital and Recruitment Methods on Immigrants and Their Children in the Swedish Labour Market2006Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis consists of an introduction and three self-contained studies on the impact of social capital on individuals’ labour market outcomes. It focuses on labour market conditions for immigrants and their children in Sweden. The central research questions of the thesis are twofold. First, what individual characteristics, such as educational level, gender and country of origin, enhance or hinder access to social capital, and how well is social capital rewarded in the labour market compared with education and work experience? Second, does the stigmatized social identity of some immigrant groups affect their access to social capital, and to what degree does such a social capital ‘deficit’ affect their labour market outcomes? The results demonstrate that inequality between immigrants (and their children) and natives (and their children) in access to networks with valuable resources of social capital is an important issue in their labour market outcomes.

    Abstract [en]

    Abstract. This paper investigates labour-market performance for 'young people with immigrant backgrounds' and those 'born in Sweden with native-born parents' in the Swedish labour market. It focuses on young people who were aged 18–20 during 1990, and their labour-market status after 8 years, in 1998. The results indicate that young people of immigrant descent have lower annual wage income and are at higher risk of not being employed than those born in Sweden with native-born parents. Differences in human capital characteristics cannot explain these results. Other theories, which stress the effect of discriminatory behaviour and the power of social network composition, are discussed as alternative interpretations. Having one native-born parent is considered to be important to labour market success. However, having a native-born father rather than a native-born mother is associated with better labour-market achievement.

    Social capital, status and income attainment in the workplace2012In: International journal of sociology and social policy, ISSN 0144-333X, E-ISSN 1758-6720, Vol. 32, no 1/2, p. 42-55Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose - The purpose of this study is to investigate the importance of social capital in the workplace. To be more precise, we ask whether access to social capital is associated with differences in the wages and status of employees within the organization.

    Design/methodology/approach - We used data from a case study of the status attainment of employees in a Swedish industrial firm.

    Findings - Results demonstrate that: (a) the socioeconomic background, gender and "migrant backgrounds" of employees have an impact on their access to resource-rich networks; and (b) there is a positive association between access to social capital and position in the organization, even after control for employees’ education and labor market experience.

    Research limitations/implications - The case study approach of the paper has its own characteristic limitations. At the same time the cross-sectional data open up the possibility of reverse causality. The analysis includes only individuals who were still working, while we know from the fieldwork that some former employees have taken early retirement or disability pensions due to occupational injury.

    Originality/value - The focus of the paper is on the process of status attainment of subordinate groups (individuals from lower socioeconomic groups, individuals with stigmatized migrant backgrounds, and women), which is an under-researched issue in organizational studies. Therefore, we ask whether the subordinate status of employees has an impact on their access to social capital in the place of work.

    Det moderna smakspelet: Tid, smak, mode2016 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Mot slutet av 1600-talet växte det fram ett nytt modernt sätt att se på och förhålla sig till smak. Detta är författarens utgångspunkt för förståelsen av det moderna smakspelet, vars utveckling och omvandlingar följs upp från 1700-talet fram till nutiden. Smaken analyseras från denna utgångspunkt som ett spel, vars föränderliga regler kartläggs och ställs i relation till det mänskliga omdömet och förståelsen av mänsklig praxis. Boken består av tre delar, en inledande essä kring tid, rytm och estetik, en omfattande mittdel där smakspelet dissekeras ur en rad olika infallsvinklar och en avslutande essä där en unik händelse i modets historia analyseras: när hattmodet gick i graven som mass- och konfektionsmode på 1960-talet.

    Safe Sex, Unsafe Identities: Intersections of ’Race’, Gender and Sexuality in Swedish HIV/AIDS Policy2008Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation examines the different depictions of ‘immigrants’ and the ways in which migration, ethnicity and racism have been handled by Swedish HIV/AIDS policy since the early 1980s. The dissertation consists of five separate articles and an introductory chapter that outlines the discourse-theoretical approach used in the subsequent articles. The introduction also provides a contextual framework by summarizing recent research on, and sketching a background to, HIV/AIDS policy development in Sweden.

    The dissertation argues that, although the policy discourse early on established that inducing safer sex practices among the Swedish population was the only viable solution to the pandemic, the discourse is nonetheless permeated by notions of unsafe identities. The dissertation also stresses the importance of scrutinizing HIV/AIDS policy in light of broader political developments, and argues that an increasing focus on migrants in HIV/AIDS policy should not be seen as a simple reflection of the global epidemiological development, but should rather be understood in relation to the general political and economic phenomenon of welfare state retrenchment. Applying postcolonial feminist theories, the dissertation reveals how the policy discourse is permeated by conceptions of migrant cultures as not susceptible to change but steeped in tradition and primordiality, alongside racialized fantasies about Africa as the ‘dark continent’ and the source of disease. It also discusses how both masculinity and femininity, as well as heterosexuality and homosexuality, feature in the policy discourse as demarcations between Western and non-Western subjects – between whites and blacks and between Swedes and non-Swedes – and identifies the challenges that such knowledge implies for feminist HIV/AIDS research and policy.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to reflect upon the racialized construction of "cultural difference" and its repercussions on "immigrant" youth living in Sweden. Drawing from critical scholarship on ethnicity and racism, as well as from postcolonial feminist theory, the first part of this article surveys and analyses hegemonic racialized discourses in mainstream media and the gendered manifestations of this discourse. With reference to my own research, the second part points to some of the ways in which these discourses play out in the lives of "immigrant" youth living in Sweden.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to engage critically with feminist HIV/AIDS research from an ‘intersectional’ perspective. Focusing in particular on the work of Tamsin Wilton (1997) and Janet Holland et al. (1998), the article examines how ‘race’, ethnicity and class are theorized and conceptualized in this literature. Through a scrutiny of their empirical analyses, the article points to the pitfalls of a descriptive approach to ‘differences’ and problematizes Wilton's and Holland et al.'s theoretical focus on gender and sexuality. The benefit of including a critical perspective on ‘race’ and ethnicity and other axes of domination is illustrated further using some empirical examples from the Swedish HIV/AIDS policy context. The article concludes by arguing that an intersectional perspective poses a challenge to feminist HIV/AIDS research that needs to be addressed in order to produce an effective sexual health policy.

    Abstract [en]

    This article examines shifts in the ways that immigrants were framed and depicted within Swedish HIV/AIDS policy discourse from 1985 to 2005. In particular, it examines whether, when and how immigrants were linked to understandings of risk and safety in sexual relations. Whereas, at first, immigrants were rather marginal to this discourse, they later held a central position. Moreover, there was a shift in how ethnicity and race were conceptualised by the Swedish authorities - a movement away from cultural pluralism towards neo-assimilationism. Throughout this time, cultural differences, often defined in terms of different attitudes to gender and sexuality, were focused on as defining the boundaries between immigrants and Swedes. But, whereas the pluralist approach favoured respect and tolerance for these differences, the neo-assimilationist approach that replaced it argued that immigrants ought to assimilate to the more enlightened sexual values of Swedishness, in order to better prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS infection.

    Abstract [en]

    This article sets out from the perspective that notions of risk and safety and how these intersect with different gendered, sexualized and racialized representations are central to the HIV/AIDS problematic. With migrants and refugees being singled out as some of the most potent disease carriers in Sweden, the article aims to scrutinize representations of identity and difference in a Swedish HIV/AIDS discourse. Concerning the empirical focus, the article is based on an analysis of sexual education material targeting immigrants/refugees in Sweden. The article reveals how Swedish heterosexuality appears as an image of normality in the material. It also discusses how the concept of gender equality becomes an ‘ethnic marker’ that serves to foment racialized differences between ‘Swedes’ and ‘immigrants’. As such, the theme of ‘pleasure and danger’ is discussed with reference to how the intersections of ‘race’, gender and sexuality appear in a Swedish context.

    De kanske tror att jag är terrorist: En analys av gränsöverskridande resande bland människor med utländsk bakgrund i Sverige2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study aims to highlight Swedish citizens with foreign backgrounds which have experienced discrimination and racialization in global travel.  The study analyzed whether Swedes with a foreign background may experience some of the Western World travel privileges when travelling abroad. It also analyzes the differences in international travel between Swedish tourists without a foreign background and Swedish tourists with a foreign background. The study starts from a postcolonial perspective. The methodology used in the study is a qualitative study, in which seven Swedes with foreign backgrounds were interviewed for the collection of material analyzed from a discourse analytical perspective. The result shows that Swedes with a foreign background see themselves as privileged in global travel. Through the Swedish passport, they have had the opportunity to travel. However, they have found their freedom restricted to a certain extent. Several of the respondents have repeatedly been discriminated in their travels, which they believe is based on their origin. This type of discrimination is based on post-colonialism, where we and them, black and white, are seen as each other contrasts which create upper and lower orders.

    Academic citizenship and wellbeing: An exploratory cross-cultural study of South African and Swedish academic perceptions2016In: South African Journal of Higher Education, ISSN 1011-3487, E-ISSN 1753-5913, Vol. 30, no 1, p. 80-105Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Academic citizenship is, conceptually speaking, closely related to organisational citizenship behaviour, as both concepts can be regarded as consisting essentially of personal co-worker and organisational support behaviours. Academics across the world operate in widely divergent settings in different socioeconomic and political situations and higher education environments. Such differing circumstances might be expected to have a bearing on the priorities that academics face in different countries and the ways academic citizenship is understood. This paper uses a mixed methods approach to analyse perceptions of academic citizenship and employee well-being in one Swedish and one South African university which operate in starkly different socioeconomic circumstances. The findings of the exploratory study suggest that despite wide-ranging differences in socioeconomic environments between the two countries, there is a high degree of common understanding of the form and substance of academic citizenship and its bearing on well-being. Key words Academic citizenship, organisational citizenship behaviour, South African and Swedish universities, well-being

    Abstract [sv]

    Synen på kultur har förändrats på senare tid, från en statisk syn till en allt mer dynamisk – inte minst i skolans värld. Men den stora utmaningen är fortfarande att göra skolan till en arena som överskrider till synes givna kulturgränser, kategoriseringar ochkulturella skillnader. Det finns anledning att vara kritisk motbegrepp som kulturkrockar, kulturmöten och kulturkompetens.

    Abstract [sv]

    Den omfattande migrationen till och från Sverige har ökat intresset för etniska relationer i rikspolitiken, regionpolitiken, kommunalpolitiken, samhällsplaneringen och inte minst forskningen. De senaste årtiondena har forskningen om etnicitet – och om integrationen – vuxit såväl i omfattning som bredd och djup. Aktuell kunskap kan tillföra diskussionen om integrationen nya perspektiv. Forskning om samhällsplaneringen och förhållandena i de så kallade utanförskapsområdena analyserar problemen och diskuterar möjligheterna att hantera dem. Ett av målen med 2008 års symposium var att öka kontakterna mellan forskare och arkitekter samt företrädare för byggföretag, bostadsbolag, bostadskonsumenter, samhälls- och bostadsplanerare inom stat, landsting och kommuner så att forskningsresultaten bättre kan tas tillvara och forskarna stimuleras till nya uppgifter.

    Vid Vadstena forum medverkade tretton forskare från skilda discipliner och institutioner. Deras uppsatser låg till grund för diskussionerna. Efter symposiet har forskarna haft tillfälle att utnyttja diskussionerna vid symposiet och vidareutveckla sina uppsatser. De uppsatser som presenteras i denna bok utgör därigenom också en dokumentation av symposiet.

    Bidrag till finansiering av forskarinsatserna under Symposium 2008 har lämnats av Linköpings universitet, Forskningsrådet för arbetsliv och socialvetenskap (Fas), Forskningsrådet för miljö, areella näringar och samhällsbyggande (Formas) och Boverket.

    The Exclusion of ’Immigrants’ in Swedish Politics: The Case of Political Parties2006In: , 2006Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Official declarations state that Sweden is today a multicultural society. At the same time, ethnic hierarchies have been become increasingly conspicuous in contemporary Sweden. The labour and housing markets, the mass media and politics, the educational and justice systems – all of these arenas are in various ways clearly stratified along ethnic and racial lines (SOU 2005: 56). This alarming situation have recently led to the appointment of a governmental inquiry with the task of illuminating in more detail the nature of structural discrimination on ethnic and religious grounds in Swedish society (Dir. 2004: 54). One of the reports of the Inquiry (Dahlstedt & Hertzberg, 2005) specifically discusses the relationship between the multi-ethnic composition of the Swedish population and the distribution of power and the exercise of political influence. Here, I intend to present some conclusions from my own research on the inclusion of “immigrants” in Swedish political parties (Dahlstedt, 2005) and relate these to some of the main arguments presented in the report. One of the main conclusions drawn is that all citizens that participate in public life are faced with a series of routines, conventions and more or less taken-for-granted ideas categorising citizens according to their perceived closeness to a Swedish “normality”. Democracy thus not only constitute a formalised system of impartial procedures and conventions, routines and norms, regulating decision-making and the formulation of opinion in a way that guarantees freedom and equality to all participants on various domains of public life. Participation on different public arenas rather reflects more or less openly excluding practices, long well documented in for example the housing and labour markets. In the report, corresponding practices are also illuminated in the domain of Swedish politics, for instance in field of local politics and within leading social movements, such as the labour union and adult education movement.

    The Swedish Road to Democracy?: Governmentality, Technologies of Citizenship and Popular Movements2009Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper examines the view of popular movements as the hallmark of Swedish democracy, looking at how it is conveyed to “immigrants” involved in popular movements in today’s Sweden. Taking as its point of departure Michel Foucault and his theories of governmentality, the paper analyzes techniques of citizen-formation staged in Swedish popular movements, with the aim of including “immigrants” in an imagined “Swedish democratic community”. The paper further analyzes two popular movements that have long set the tone of Swedish social and political life, namely the trade union movement and the adult education movement. The work of both movements in relation to “immigrants” is based on an idea that democracy is more or less synonymous with specifically “Swedish traditions”. Both movements are viewed as bearers of the “Swedish national heritage”. This view, obviously, has a number of far-reaching consequences for the inclusion of “immigrants” in Swedish democracy, as mature “democratic citizens”, as well as for the functioning of Swedish democracy at large. The techniques of “democratic schooling” initiated by both movements thereby appears to be some kind of evolutionary process of governmentality, in which “immigrants” are transferred to a different stage of “development”. The process involves “us Swedes”, on the one side, sharing “our” historical experiences and conveying “our” democratic heritage, while “they”, on the other side, abandon their pre-modern, collectivist loyalties and become transformed into modern individuals, i.e. mature, democratic citizens.

    Longing to belong: Stories of (non)belonging in mjlti-ethnic Sweden2017In: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, ISSN 1799-649X, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 7, no 4, p. 197-204Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to contribute to an understanding of contemporary processes of negotiations concerning belonging and non-belonging to the Swedish social community. Taking on a theoretical approach on belonging inspired by Yuval-Davis and Jacobsen, the article analyses three individual stories of women who have migrated to Sweden. Out of this analysis, focusing on how these women claim their belonging to a Swedish social community at the same time as they in different ways are denied such belonging by others, we may conclude that although each of the stories told is unique and articulates an individual experience, there are striking similarities in how their claims of belonging, with its related implications for belonging, are not acknowledged by others. In a way, these individual stories tell us something about some of the crucial challenges regarding belonging in contemporary multi-ethnic Sweden, as well as Europe.

    Demokrati på svenska?: Om strukturell diskriminering och politiskt deltagande : rapport av Utredningen om makt, integration och strukturell diskriminering2005Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Utredningen om Makt, integration och strukturell diskriminering startade i april 2004 och har i uppdrag att identifiera och kartlägga mekanismer bakom strukturell/institutionell diskriminering på grund av etnisk och religiös tillhörighet. Rapporten Demokrati på svenska? behandlar den svenska demokratins grundläggande dilemma, nämligen deklarationen av en formell politisk jämlikhet och en reell ojämlikhet som drabbar många människor med invandrarbakgrund och exkluderar dem från politisk deltagande.

    Skola i samverkan: Miljonprogrammet och visionen om den öppna skolan2011Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Under den senare av delen av 1990-talet och början på 2000 talet var "skolan mitt i förorten" något av ett slagord inom utbildningspolitiken. Tanken var att skolorna i så kallade "utsatta områden" skulle utvecklas till en resurs och ett kraftcentrum i lokalsamhället. Skolorna skulle sjuda av aktivitet efter lektionstidens slut. Föreningslivet, lokala företag och engagerade medborgare skulle bli delaktiga i skolans verksamhet, och med sina särskilda kunskaper bidra till skolans verksamhet. Förhoppningen var att denna samverkan skulle stärka såväl lokalsamhället som skolan, och möjligheterna till inkludering i samhället skulle bli större för ungdomar med utländsk bakgrund. Boken tar sin utgångspunkt i denna utbildningspolitiska inriktning. Magnus Dahlstedt och Fredrik Hertzberg analyserar och diskuterar politikens målsättningar, utformning och premisser, med ett särskilt fokus på frågor om svenskhet, invandrarskap, tillhörighet och rättvisa. Vad ville man åstadkomma med de ambitioner som sammanfattades i slagorden samverkan och "skolan mitt i förorten"? Vilket samhälle ville man skapa? Hur såg man på olika elevgruppers möjligheter att bli fullvärdiga medborgare i detta samhälle? Vad passade in, och vad skulle förändras? På vilka sätt fick lokalsamhällets aktörer vara med i skolans verksamhet? Vilka möjligheter hade de att påverka? Med sina försök att svara på dessa frågor har Dahlstedt och Hertzberg skrivit en bok som kan ge både nya perspektiv och konkreta råd till dem som är intresserade av skolfrågor, inte minst av frågan om hur skolan ska kunna ge alla elever likvärdiga möjligheter inför sitt framtida liv och arbetsliv.

    Utbildning, arbete, medborgarskap: strategier för social inkludering i den mångetniska staden2016Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Tillgång till utbildning är en förutsättning för jämlika levnadsvillkor och ett fullvärdigt medborgarskap. Men med en allt mer polari¬serad och etniskt skiktad arbetsmarknad är utbildning inte längre en tillräcklig förutsättning för social mobilitet, trots att samhället är mer beroende av kunskap och utbildning än någonsin.I denna bok beskrivs relationen mellan utbildning och möjligheten att uppnå de levnadsvillkor som det sociala medborgarskapet föreskriver. Vilka strategier utvecklar barn till invandrare för att övervinna hinder i samhället och erfarenheter av exkludering och stigmatisering? Framför allt fokuseras övergången mellan skola och arbete: Hur präglas utbildningsval och syn på arbete och karriär av sociala bakgrundsfaktorer som klass, kön och etnisk tillhörighet? Vilken betydelse har boendemiljön och den lokala skolan för valet av skola? Hur inverkar föräldragrupper, föreningar och andra sociala rörelser på övergången mellan skola och arbetsmarknad?
