    Utbildning, arbete, medborgarskap2007Collection (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?

    Den nya svenska förortsrörelsen – viljan att höra hemma2018In: Förortsdrömmar: Ungdomar, utanförskap och viljan till inkludering / [ed] Magnus Dahlstedt, Linköping: Linköping University Electronic Press, 2018, p. 181-199Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta kapitel kretsar kring just förorten som skådeplats för politiskt motstånd. Särskilt fokus riktas mot framväxten av en förortsrörelse bland förortens unga, en form av gräsrotsmobilisering som kretsar kring rumslig och social orättvisa (Sernhede m.fl. 2016; Ålund 2014b). Denna rörelse uttrycker ett lokalt förankrat, men translokalt förgrenat, motstånd mot den sociala exkludering som drabbar de boende och inte minst de unga i förortsområden runtom i landet (León Rosales & Ålund 2017). I denna organisering åberopar förortens unga sin rätt till hemmahörande på lika villkor. Rörelsen drivs av en stark vilja att höra till, artikulerad i en kamp för hemmastadiggörande. De unga kräver rätten till staden och till Sverige som inkluderande hem.

    Villkorat partnerskap: Demokrati och social inkludering i relationer mellan bildningsförbund och föreningar bildade på etnisk grund2010In: Dansk Sociologi, ISSN 0905-5908, Vol. 4, no 21, p. 71-90Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The authors discuss cooperation between immigrant associations and public institutions for adult education in Sweden. They emphasize, on the one hand, a growing importance for social inclusion of activism among immigrant associations and, on the other hand, their stigmatization, and subordinate position. Based on empirical case studies from metropolitan Stockholm, the authors argue that these associations have become more or less institutionalized in terms of new partnerships (between state, municipality and volunteer organizations) and have taken over a number of service functions from the retiring welfare state. Focusing on issues of cooperation in the area of adult education the authors argues that this partnership is unequal. Contextualising a changing institutional system of adult education and its role in social inclusion of migrants they examine problems of partnership both in terms of lack of dialogue and culturally defined hierarchy and in terms of adjustment to market exigency.

    Contesting urban management regimes: the rise of urban justice movements in Sweden2016In: Solidarity without borders: Gramscian perspectives on migration and civil society alliances / [ed] Óscar García Agustín, Martin Bak Jørgensen, Chicago: Pluto Press, 2016, , p. 186-203p. 186-202Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Addressing segregation, racism and welfare transformation, a new form of grassroots mobilization among young adults is emerging in the peripheries of Swedish cities. The common denominator is that they define themselves as urban justice movements – with place as the social ground for mobilization. With a Gramscian perspective, the article analysis the rise of urban justice movements in relation to contemporary urban policies in Sweden. We argue that Swedish urban policies during the last 20 years have created a hegemonic urban management regime underpinned by area based programs with a focus on network steering and new forms of partnership between civil society and public institutions. The emergence of urban justice movements is here understood in relation to firsthand negative experience of– and later active revulsion from – having participated in activities and issues related to the urban management regime. These experiences have been a key condition for the beginning of a broader struggle that merges local rootedness with wider structural-institutional conditionality.

    Asymmetric Partnership: Migrant organisations, trade unions and equality Ombudsman2011In: Revija za Sociologiju / Sociological Review, ISSN 0350-154X, E-ISSN 1846-7954, Vol. 41, no 1, p. 51-76Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The study examines civil society agency for social inclusion among Associations Founded on Ethnic Grounds (AFEGs), focusing on their engagement for combating discrimination and enhancing migrant incorporation into the Swedish labour market. The overall rationale of the study investigates the complex institutional conditionality of AFEGs for developing their agency as social movement and civil society actors. The main aim of this study has been to understand how anti-discrimination agencies run by AFEGs, with subsidy support by the state, describe their experiences, and which implications the subsidy may have for the orientation and direction of their actions. The study comprises primarily interviews with anti-discrimination lawyers and heads of two agencies, but also interviews with representatives for the Equality Ombudsman. The greatest challenge for the agencies has been caused by subsidy cutbacks, which have affected both the working conditions of the agencies and other engagements of the AFEGs, such as educational courses among their members, awareness raising concerning the issues of anti-discrimination among different officials, in municipalities, trade unions and among employers. Due to the cutbacks, the civil society actors such as AFEGs have been forced to adapt to market principles by becoming entrepreneurs specialised, in this case, in the field of anti-discrimination law. The study further analyses the effects of this development as well as opportunity structures for collaboration with trade unions and the Equality Ombudsman. Even though these partnerships reveal relational asymmetries, the authors call attention to current and possible future openings in opportunity structures for wider collaboration between AFEGs, trade unions and the Equality Ombudsman.

    Etniciteter: Ras, kön, klass, identitet och kultur2007In: Etnicitet; perspektiv på samhället / [ed] Peterson Abby och Michael Hjerm, Malmö: Gleerups Utbildning , 2007, p. 11-26Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

      Alla människor, oavsett etnisk bakgrund, har sammansatta identiteter. Beroende på situationen kan man känna sig som i första hand "kvinna" eller "kurd" eller "arbe tarklass". Vissa identiteter skapar hinder i människors liv och då handlar det om social ojämlikhet. Många väljer dock att tolka eller förklara sociala orättvisor utifrån etnicitet, kultur eller ras. Etnicitet blir därmed både en förklaring och ett vapen i en samhällsprocess, där klyftor ökar och där människor inte längre tillåts känna sig hemma.I ETNICITET - PERSPEKTIV PÅ SAMHÄLLET visas hur etnicitetsperspektiv bidrar till att göra samhällsforskningen mer aktuell och mer relevant, men också mer intressant. Områden som alltid har lockat samhällsforskare och sociologer - som utbildning, arbetsmarknad, politik, familjestrukturer och boende - får därigenom ytterligare dimensioner.

    Aktivism som platskamp. Självpositionering och medborgarskapande inom den svenska förortsrörelsen2018In: ARKIV. Tidskrift för samhällsanalys, ISSN 2000-6225, E-ISSN 2000-6217, no 9, p. 53-76Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    I sin artikel undersöker René León Rosales och Aleksandra Ålund de processer som villkorar och möjliggör framväxten av en subjektsposition som aktivist bland ungdomar tillhörande en postmigrant-generation inom den svenska urbana rättviserörelsen som kallats den nya ”förortsrörelsen”. Artikeln utgör en fallstudie av Megafonen, en ungdomsledd organisation grundad i Husby som var central för framväxten av förortsrörelsen. I fokus står den unga aktivisten ”Jasmines” livsberättelse. Empiriskt baseras artikeln på material insamlat sedan 2014 genom deltagande observation, videoinspelningar, intervjuer samt texter, video och bilder hämtade från internet och pressen. Författarna undersöker relationen mellan individuella och kollektiva lärandeprocesser samt transcenderande identitetsprocesser förankrade i rörelsens ”platskamp” i rasifierade urbana landskap. Genom begreppet ”aktivistiskt medborgarskap” belyser artikeln förortsrörelsens platskamp som ett samtida uttryck för medborgarskapande genom vilket unga vuxna politiserar sina erfarenheter av marginalisering och diskriminering och kräver sin rättmätiga plats i samhället.

    A Global Migrant Precariat: Labour, Citizenship and Space for Civil Society2013Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper pursues a critical understanding of the dual signification of ‘precarity’. ‘The authors explorewhat ‘precarity’ as a concept may potentially offer studies of a changing contemporary politicaleconomy of migration. They discuss shifting trends in global migration and the rise of a neoliberal‘regulatory state’, and put the question as to whether we may see tendencies towards convergencebetween ‘South’ and ‘North’, ‘East’ and ‘West’. Based on a review of current research advances theydiscuss, with reference to the classical work of Karl Polanyi, potentials for a contemporary‘countermovement’ contesting precarity among migrants. Bringing forth controversies and dilemmasin need of analysis, theoretical elaboration and empirical inquiry the authors ask ‘what is the space forcivil society in governance on migration?

    Beyond Liberal Pluralism: Migration and Politics of Exclusion in Europe2010Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Contemporary intellectual critique, seeing multiculturalism as a threat to liberal core values and social cohesion, tells us more about paradoxes of a contemporary Western ‘liberalism’, which is loosing contact with its founding premises, than about actual multicultural policies. The article sets out to review the Swedish trajectory between a unique liberal multicultural agenda and generous policies of asylum and naturalisation towards an alignment with a currently rising wave of retrogressive identity politics, securitisation of integration policy and the institutionalisation of heavily monitored processes of ‘circular migration’ in the EU. This development is seen as propelled by a political merger of a neo-liberal concern for economic growth and a neo-conservative focus on needs for reinforcing moral duty, family responsibility, cultural homogeneity and community cohesion, but with a rich body of established civil, political, social and cultural rights of citizenship exposed to erosion.

    Reading the Stockholm riots - a moment for social justice?2014In: RACE & CLASS, ISSN 0306-3968, E-ISSN 1741-3125, Vol. 55, no 3Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the 2013 riots in Stockholm in the context of other urban rebellions across disadvantaged metropolitan neighbourhoods in the North-Atlantic region over the past three decades of neoliberal transformation. The authors discuss the consequences of securitisation and police repression, institutional racism, the corrosion of citizenship and the structuring of inequality in Swedish cities. Beyond the violence of the recent riots, contemporary Sweden reveals the emergence of an autonomous, non-violent and organisationally embedded movement for social justice among young people contesting urban degradation and reclaiming the nation in terms of an inclusive citizenship, social welfare and democracy. The article asks whether the Stockholm uprising could possibly be read as a sobering moment of self-examination in Swedish politics that could open space up for new political voices.

    Stockholmsupproret: En kamp för social rättvisa2018In: Nation i ombildning: Essäer om 2000-talets Sverige / [ed] Aleksandra Ålund, Carl-Ulrik Schierup och Anders Neergaard, Stockholm: Boréa Bokförlag, 2018, 1, p. 307-332Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Stockholmsupproret 2013 är ett exempel på urban oro i marginaliserade bostadsområden— ett missnöje med koppling till de senaste decenniernas nyliberala omvandling och en utveckling som kan betraktas som en havererad urbanpolitik, en uttunning av medborgerliga rättigheter samt effekter avojämlikhetsskapande processer i större städer såväl som i samhället som helhet. Dessa ”upplopp”, eller snarare uppror, i Sverige och även i andradelar av Västvärlden, uttrycker krav för social rättvisa och är en manifestationav en ny, politisk, röst . Ur kravallernas dimridå, framträder i Stockholm samtidigt en självständig, demokratiskt artikulerad rättviseorganisation som förmår att sätta strukturella orsaker till såkallade ”kravaller” i fokus för nationell och internationell debatt.Det handlar om den ungdomsledda organisationen, Megafonen i Husby som blivit känt som "förortens röst".Med sitt fokus på välfärd, fördjupad demokrati, kamp mot rasism,diskriminering och polisiärt övervåld blev Megafonen en förebild i en framväxande urban rättviserörelse. Det är denna utveckling som utgör ämnet för detta kapitel.

    Migration, Precarization and the Democratic Deficit in Global Governance2015In: International migration (Geneva. Print), ISSN 0020-7985, E-ISSN 1468-2435, Vol. 53, no 3, p. 50-63Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article attempts to provide a critical understanding of the dual signification of “precarity”. It explores what “precarity” as a concept may potentially offer to studies of the changing contemporary political economy of migration. It discusses shifting trends in global migration and point to tendencies for a possible convergence between “South” and “North”, “East” and “West”. Based on a review of current advances in research, it discusses, with reference to the classical work of Karl Polanyi, the potential for a contemporary “countermovement” which would challenge the precarity of migrants. Bringing forward the issue of the “space for civil society” the article addresses a still lingering democratic deficit in the global governance of migration.

    Abstract [sv]

    Sverige har länge betraktats som en demokratisk förebild och ett öppet och solidariskt välfärdssamhälle. Under 2000-talet har social ojämlikhet och boendesegregering ökat, åtföljd av rasism och en allt mer restriktiv flyktingpolitik. Sverige är en nation i ombildning. Åtstramningspolitik och högerpopulism har fått bred förankring i partipolitiken. Samtidigt uppstår motrörelser, där civilsamhälleliga aktörer kräver en fördjupad demokrati och social rättvisa. Vi står inför ett skifte. Kommer en nyliberal ekonomisk politik att smälta samman med en auktoritär, rasistisk populism? Eller är de nya rörelserna en öppning mot ett mer inkluderande, jämlikt och rättvist samhälle, där visionen för framtiden byggs på hopp och optimism — inte rädsla och hot?

    “Race” and the upsurge of antagonistic popular movements in Sweden2018In: Ethnic and Racial Studies, ISSN 0141-9870, E-ISSN 1466-4356, Vol. 41, no 10, p. 1837-1854Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Across a crisis-stricken Europe battles rage for post-neoliberal hegemony, with“race” and “austerity” as central signifiers. One of the places where thefrontlines are most pregnant is Sweden; long perceived as a role model for itswelfare state, cultural equity and social equality. Sweden is, however, facingsocial conflicts following in the tracks of a deep transformation in terms ofwelfare cuts, racialization and growing social polarization, targeting inparticular a disadvantaged migrant and post-migrant population. On thatbackground, the paper focuses on the upsurge of mutually antagonistic popularmovements – “racist” and “anti-racist”. We use Sweden as an exemplary case ofEurope’s present Polanyian moment, reminiscent of the 1930s. Yet, currentupheavals expound, the authors claim, a different configuration of crisis andracism as well as a dissimilar utopia for the imagineering of nation and community.

    Will They Still be Dancing?: Integration and Ethnic Transformation Among Yougslav Immigrants in Scandinavia1987Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Indulged with sociological self-centeredness we have reduced vampires to mechanisms of social cohesion. Hence,we have questioned a culture, seeing vampires as what they are, the dead ones haunting the living. If our interpretations have shown contempt towards vampires, we apologize for our mundane limitations, and thank them for the inspiration.

    We also thank all those living beings who have helped us through our voyage through the past and present. We give special thoughts to Baba Mitra, Baba Inda, and other great Wallachian mothers, who have received us with hospitality and endured our incessant questioning. For their excellent cooperation: Miroslav Panojevic, Ljubce Muncanovic, Stale Zulumovski, Nada and Aleksandar Serafimovski and many others in Denmark and Sweden. Special thanks also to Steven Sampson and Michel Vale for their great patience and meticulous scrutinizing of our English. Steven Sampson, Lasse Petterson, Billy Ehn, Ole H\'Siris, Georg Karlsson, Rune Aberg and Christian Horst have read and criticized the manuscript and helped us with valuable suggestions.

    Finally, for their generous financial support we thank the following organizations: The Swedish Council for Research in the Humanities and Social Sciences, The Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation, The Danish Social Science Research Council and the Danish International Development Agency.

    Abstract [en]

    Departing from the notion of 'the stranger' in classical sociological literature (Alfred Schutz and Georg Simmel), the paper discusses the significance of two paradigmatic approaches, one of which has discursively branched off into modernity. In a world where the search for roots has become widespread - from the new social movements to the building of new nation-state, from identity politics to national identities - the multiple expression of exclusion has spread. A new kind of European citizen, a 'stranger', is being constructed. I argue that scientific discourses related to the intellectual heritage of Alfred Schutz have helped to create the 'stranger' and the 'non-stranger'. It is further argued that Simmel's approach is an alternative well worth highlighting.

    Abstract [en]

    The paper examines the meaning of ethnic memory as it finds expression in the life stories and identity formation of three young Swedish women of immigrant background. Their identity is formed within afield of tension between what is and what has been. Using the examples of diffèrent metaphors attached to the symbolic space of tradition, they seek to link time and space and thus fragments of migrants’ splintered life. In relating the past to the present and its antagonisms to those of the present, all three girls demonstrate an ability to re‐interpret and to translate tradition into present experience. This, the author maintains, can be understood as a creative capacity out of which a new kind qf self‐orientation is born, and a new sense of home and belonging, come into being. In this way ‘modern ethnic consciousness ‘ takes form as a reflexive linkages across space and time. A new order is created out of the disorder of dissolved continuity.

    Abstract [en]

    This article offers a reflection on migration in the era of globalisation, and on its expression in contexts of tourism and self-employment. Ethnic entrepreneurship is increasing in Sweden. The motive forces behind this kind of self-employment are discussed in relation to unemployment and discrimination in the Swedish labour market. Other aspects of entrepreneurship to be discussed are related to the “importation” of Thais as “tourists” to Sweden, where they are exposed to severe exploitation in the informal economy. Different expressions of ethnic entrepreneurship are discussed in the context of the “global city” and its various types of citizen.

    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the complex meaning of ethnicity and identity in the multicultural society of today with reference to Swedish society. Sweden, a pronouncedly multiethnic society, is today undergoing division along ethnic lines. Social inequalities tend to be understood in terms of cultural difference. This development seems to be characteristic of most European countries. Culture is usually connected with ethnicity and race and understood as pure, as an ‘essence’, as related to some original and eternal ethnic core. In this way important aspects of cultural dynamic in multicultural society are left unobserved. What is usually not recognized are cultural crossings and the emergence of composite identities. Within the framework of multicultural society new cultures, identities and ethnicities are created. Departing from some general features of the dominant discourse on ethnicity, its historical roots and its relations to culture and multicutturalism, I discuss problems of cultural essentialism.

    Abstract [en]

    The article discusses some general features of the dominant discourses of ethnicity and culture, their historical roots and relations to contemporary forms of multiculturalism. It compares different expressions of cultural belonging in European societies taking Sweden as an example. Departing from the complex meaning of culture the problems of essentialism inherent in concepts of culture and ethnicity are discussed. Sweden, as well as other European multiethnic societies, is undergoing a division along ethnic lines. Social inequalities tend to be understood in terms of cultural difference. Culture is usually connected with ethnicity and race and understood as pure, as an ᅵessence,ᅵ as related to some original and eternal ethnic core. In this way important aspects of cultural dynamics in the multiethnic society, not least among young people, are left unobserved. What are usually not recognized are cultural crossings and the emergence of composite identities and their relations to social structure.

    Etnicitet, medborgarskap och gränser2002In: Maktens (o)lika förklädnader :: kön, klass & etnicitet i det postkoloniala Sverige : en festskrift till Wuokko Knocke / [ed] Paulina de los Reyes, Irene Molina och Diana Mulinari, Stockholm: ATLAS förlag , 2002, 1, p. 285-294Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Maktens olika förklädnader kan läsas som en postkolonialt inspirerad lägesrapport om Sverige i början av det nya millenniet. Även om tystnaden kring rasism är och har varit en marginaliserad fråga inom den svenska feministiska forskningen, visar flera texter i denna antologi att rasismen är en nyckel kategori för att förstå nutida former av social differentiering. Nu i storpocket!En viktig forskningsuppgift är därför att analysera hur könsidentiteter konstitueras inom ramen för ett rasifierat och klassindelat samhälle. Att problematisera rasism innebär inte bara att förkasta den som social praxis utan också att lyfta fram och undersöka hur erfarenheter av rasismen parallellt med klass och kön formar sociala identiteter.En inte mindre viktig aspekt som tas upp i antologin är medvetenheten om rasism, vilket anses vara av central betydelse för att förstå hur att rasistiska ideologier präglar vår uppfattning om sociala fenomen. I detta sammanhang är begreppet intersektionalitet som introduceras i boken, relevant för förståelsen av de mekanismer som gör kön- klass och ras/etnicitet till bärande principer för överordning och underordning.
