    The Feeling of Migration: Narratives of Queer Intimacies and Partner Migration2016Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    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.

    The Stories Need to be Told: The politics of visibility/invisibility: Museum representations and participation of migrants, refugees, and ethnic minorities2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    International migration and the refugee crisis have sparked a number of debates within the public policy circle. This issue also has profound social and cultural implications, even in the museum sector. Despite the efforts of ethnographic museums to set aside skin colour or ethnicities as a means of distinction, and to be open to new perspectives, the representation of migrants, refugees and ethnic minorities still evokes the purported continuity of white supremacy as the persistent legacy of colonialism. In this thesis, my attempt is to examine the extent to which there is a probability of exercising invisible power in participatory and exhibition spaces. I look at how the Tensta Art Centre, as a small and local institute, tackles the production of different knowledges and attempts to become a space of appearance for migrants and ethnic minorities. I also compare its efforts with those of big-scale institutes such as the World Culture Museum, which is a Swedish ethnographic museum. This study investigates the possibility of producing a place of embodied institutional critique within exhibition spaces in an active and meaningful way. This has been explored through the concept of visibility/invisibility in the complexes of visuality, as evident in the observations made in my study cases. In addition, I have adopted a critical analysis approach to examine the possibility of having multiple and assemblage forms of knowledge productions in participatory spaces. Finally, through my study, I understood that despite the effort to make the new space without hierarchy, there is still the risk and possibility of hegemonic discourses and thinking that lead to complicities.

    Kurdish Guests or Syrian Refugees?: Negotiating Displacement, Identity and Belonging in the Kurdistan Region2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    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.

    Nationalism and The Construction of Others in China: Exploring Social Media in the Shadow of the “Refugee Crisis”2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This research examines discourses on the social media site Weibo around the group of international asylum seekers during an online campaign launched by United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees to raise awareness of asylum seekers in the People’s Republic of China on June 2017. Sina Weibo is a Chinese social media site with its users making up of around 50% of total Chinese internet users (Weibo, 2017). Despite the background that Chinese government aims at taking more significant responsibility in global governance, in the same time as China demonstrates emerging interests in refugee issues, commentaries from grassroots Chinese on social media, however, held an altered stance. According to the author’s observation, during and after the UNHCR campaign of World Refugee Day on June 20, 2017, comments on topics of international refugee, refugee protection as well as certain religious and ethnic groups (Islam and Muslim, for example) on Weibo were mainly loaded with negative emotions, biased stereotypes, and resistant sentiments. 

    The study is an interdisciplinary study contemplating theory in several disciplines, such as international migration and ethnic relations, international relations, public attitude dynamics, public communication, and new media. It is based on a critical discourse analysis approach, where the relationship between cyber discursive practices and the social, cultural, and power structure in the Chinese context is studied. Chinese public perception of the European “refugee crisis”, the public reaction toward several humanitarian pursuits which are deemed to be possessed by the West, grassroots identification of usand them, the global production and dissemination of particular xenophobic and Islamophobic sentiments will be studied. Last but not least, features of social media concerning their possible impacts on the aspects mentioned above are analyzed.

    Att verka för jämlika arbetsplatser: en studie av jämlikhet och ojämlikhet mellan anställda i äldrevården2017Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här rapporten redovisar resultat från en studie på ett antal äldreboenden i en större svensk kommun. Syftet har varit att undersöka hur jämlikhet mellan olika grupper av anställda – i första hand mellan personer i befattningarna undersköterska och sjukvårdsbiträde – kan gynnas.

    Studien har genomförts av fyra forskare och bekostats av det statliga Vetenskapsrådet. Den är alltså varken beställd eller planerad av kommunen ifråga. Forskarna är helt ansvariga för alla delar av studiens uppläggning, genomförande och resultat.

    Sweden: The Otherization of the Descendants of Immigrants2019Inngår i: The Palgrave Handbook of Race and Ethnic Inequalities in Education / [ed] Peter Stevens and A. Gary Dworkin, Cham: Palgrave MacMillan , 2019, 2, s. 999-1034Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter offers a systematic review of the literature on educational inequality and school attainments of immigrants’ offspring in Sweden. The review covers research conducted between 1990 and 2015 and critically examines how different research traditions explain this inequality. The chapter begins by mapping the key characteristics of the Swedish educational system together with Swedish immigration patterns. Thereafter, five major research traditions that explain educational inequality and ethnic background in Sweden are presented. These perspectives include (1) political arithmetic; (2) racism and discrimination; (3) language proficiency tradition; (4) school choice and school segregation; and (5) cultural and social capital and socio-historical contexts. The ‘political arithmetic’ tradition, which starts mainly from a positivistic approach and employs large-scale, quantitative research strategies, has focused on the individual and demographic characteristics of pupils. The main assumption of the other research clusters is that there are important contextual circumstances (beyond individual factors) which decisively affect the educational achievements of the descendants of immigrants. While often dominated by qualitative approaches, these types of research do sometimes include quantitatively designed studies. These research traditions take a more critical stance on government policies, which have produced an extremely segregated school system, and show the consequences of a concentration of children of families from vulnerable groups (economically disadvantaged and immigrant groups in marginalized neighborhoods) in schools with limited resources.

    Citizens at heart?: perspectives on integration of refugees in the EU after the Yugoslav wars of succession2016Collection/Antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This edited volume is based on presentations made at the international conference “Citizens at Heart: Immigrant Integration in a European Perspective”, held at Uppsala University in March 2013. The book is a contribution to the growing literature investigating the aftermath of the violent dissolution of Yugoslavia and the processes of re-settlement and integration experienced by the refugees from Bosnia and Herzegvoina. In the midst of the present war in Syria and the heavy flows of refugees that are currently arriving in Europe, it is timely to revisit the integration experiences and transnational activities of the Bosnians who faced a similar fate some twenty years ago.

    Culture and Context in Mental Health Diagnosing: Scrutinizing the DSM-5 Revision.2019Inngår i: Journal of Medical Humanities, ISSN 1041-3545, E-ISSN 1573-3645, Vol. 40, nr 3, s. 347-363Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the revision of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) and its claim of incorporating a "greater cultural sensitivity." The analysis reveals that the manual conveys mixed messages as it explicitly addresses the critique of being ethnocentric and having a static notion of culture yet continues in a similar fashion when culture is applied in diagnostic criteria. The analysis also relates to current trends in psychiatric nosology that emphasize neurobiology and decontextualize distress and points to how the DSM-5 risks serving as an ethnic dividing line in psychiatry by making sociocultural context relevant only for some patients.

    Beyond cultural racism: Challenges for an anti-racist sexual education for youth2019Inngår i: Youth, Sexuality and Sexual Citizenship / [ed] Peter Aggleton, Rob Cover, Deana Leahy, Daniel Marshall and Mary Lou Rasmussen, London: Routledge, 2019, s. 71-85Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter analyses sexual educational material in Sweden that aspires to a ‘norm critical’ agenda, i.e. which explicitly seeks to challenge norms regarding gender, sexuality, able-bodyness, race and ethnicity. The analysis is interested in the ways the material attempts to move beyond racialised notions of immutable cultural differences. We argue that while the material avoids reproducing stereotypes, it fails to develop an alternative way of conceptualising culture and its importance for sexuality. It also falls prey to a liberal discourse in its attempt to bridge differences by aspiring to universal rights. A more fruitful alternative, we suggest, would be to turn to a transversal politics so as to develop a form of sex education that can accommodate conflicting values, while treating culture in a non-essentialist way.

    Language, Culture and Maternity Care: "Troubling" Interpretation in an Institutional Context2015Inngår i: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, ISSN 1799-649X, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 5, nr 2, s. 58-66Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyses language interpretation in the context of maternity health care. By scrutinising how maternity health care staff reflects upon their experiences from the everyday institutional setting, the article shows that they are caught between a discourse on language interpretation as migrants’ rights and a racialised discourse where language is intertwined with notions of ‘otherness’. As such, language interpretation becomes subsumed into a range of different practices that seek to discipline migrant women to meet the demands from Swedish society. In the article, therefore, the everyday practice by the health care staff is looked upon as a form of citizenship-making, and the article emphasises how racialised discourses take different shapes in different institutional contexts. Thus, the article shows that the practice of language interpretation cannot, in this context, be fully understood without including the larger socio-political context.

    Utbildning, arbete, medborgarskap: strategier för social inkludering i den mångetniska staden2016Collection/Antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    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?

    Crisis of Solidarity?: Changing Welfare and Migration Regimes in Sweden2019Inngår i: Critical Sociology, ISSN 0896-9205, E-ISSN 1569-1632, Vol. 45, nr 1, s. 121-135Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Europe is in crisis. In recent years, there has been a rise of xenophobic parties in a number of European countries. While arguing that there is indeed a European crisis, this article focuses on the Swedish take on the crisis. The aim is to contribute to the understanding of migration, from a Swedish vantage point. This orientation has particular significance since Sweden has traditionally been extolled as defending human rights and multiculturalism by opening its doors to refugees – the so-called Swedish exceptionalism. Reality, however, is quite different and former policies are contested, raising the question whether this signals the end of this exceptionalism. In Sweden, ongoing processes are transforming the core social fabric of what was previously known as the Swedish model. It is potentially a bellwether for the transformation of a previously inclusive democratic society into something quite different, in which ‘the Other’ increasingly plays a defining role.

    Den nya svenska förortsrörelsen – viljan att höra hemma2018Inngår i: Förortsdrömmar: Ungdomar, utanförskap och viljan till inkludering / [ed] Magnus Dahlstedt, Linköping: Linköping University Electronic Press, 2018, s. 181-199Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    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.

    Empowering the Unprivileged: The Case of Self-renovation in Disadvantaged Areas2011Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    In the 90’s; several European governments promoted the involvement of inhabitants as an important condition of success in urban regeneration projects. The dialogue with inhabitants was supposed to strengthen a collective movement in the neighbourhoods; to restore social and territorial cohesion and create a local identity among the residents of disadvantaged areas. However; a number of issues can be raised regarding this policy: the commitment of the inhabitants in the decision-making process is difficult to ascertain; especially throughout the whole duration of the project; and in relation to the management of the different stages of the project; it is not always easy to achieve consensus; etc. In particular; it is hard for the project managers to involve the most unprivileged groups; notably people suffering from a combination of social; legal and financial problems. The stake here is not simply their participation in a project; but more specifically their “empowerment”. In this framework; the methods of the French non-profit organization Les Compagnons Bâtisseurs are instructive. They provide micro solutions to people living in poor housing conditions through the conception and the implementation of a self-renovation process. The organization proposes technical and financial support so that the most disadvantaged groups can renovate their flats. However; the goal is not only to ameliorate the material living conditions; through the organization of workshops in the neighbourhood; the participation of the inhabitants in the renovation work; the coordination between the team of Compagnons Bâtisseurs and social workers; the social inclusion of the most unprivileged groups can be promoted.

    Urban and social segregation: an analysis of the methods used in urban regeneration projects: Bilaga 2 till rapporten Socialt hållbar stadsutveckling – en kunskapsöversikt (Boverket 2010)2010Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    On an initiative of the Swedish Government, Boverket has commanded an international study of methods and practices in urban regeneration and housing policies that allow tackling urban and social segregation. The focus should be on regeneration projects that aim at:

    • improving the quality of the housing stock,
    • mixing housing types,
    • renovating buildings.

    The purpose of the analysis was to understand the decision‐making processes, the project management, the financial contributions, the partnership engaged as well as the role of the participation of inhabitants in the process. Seven different countries have been chosen for their experience in this particular topic, notably England, Germany, Denmark, France, the United States, Canada and the Netherlands.

    Passport Power – Citizenship by Investment Programmes Exploiting Spatiotemporal Hierarchies of Passports2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The practice of selling passports through Citizenship by Investment (CBI) programmes is gaining more attraction and legitimacy in light of increasingly stricter immigration policies. Instead of simply weighing the pro and contra points of CBI, this thesis aims to understand CBI as a consequence of neoliberalism and analyses the correlation between so called ‘passport power’ and wealth, whereby the former is determined by rankings and the latter is represented in terms of the gross domestic product (GDP). Hence, a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods is used to firstly, examine the strength of correlation, and secondly, supported by Laclau and Mouffe’s discourse theory, discuss how CBI is understood and debated in the context of today’s governed communities. The CBI arises out of a discursive struggle between citizenship and class, and exacerbates preexisting global inequalities. Furthermore, it challenges the normative foundations of citizenship and its connection to the nation state. On the one hand CBI contests the sedimented discourse of the modern passport system (and by extension the notions of citizenship), on the other hand capitalist negative individualism corrupts/distorts the initially egalitarian, utopian vision of what it means to be a citizen of the world.

    Pensionärsplaneten: Spaniensvenskar och pensionsmigration i en globaliserad värld2016Bok (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [sv]

    Svenskar som utvandrar till Spanien på ålderns höst är ett växande fenomen, men svenska Spanienpensionärer utmålas i medierna ofta som oförmögna att ”integrera sig” i det spanska samhället. Själva har Spanienpensionärerna tröttnat på myterna om att de är bortskämda golfare, skattesmitare eller salongsalkoholister som vägrar lära sig spanska och försöker återskapa ett ”Lilla Sverige” i Spanien. Hur ser pensionärernas liv ut i Spanien och hur ser villkoren ut för migranter och spanjorer som på olika sätt arbetar med dem? I Pensionärsplaneten möter vi ett brett spektrum av människoöden: folkpensionären, fattigpensionären, sjukpensionären och uteliggaren. Vi möter även människor (migranter och spanjorer) som på olika sätt arbetar med pensionsmigranter i Spanien. Utifrån dessa färgstarka berättelser och livsöden har Anna Gavanas, forskare i socialantropologi, skrivit en reportagebok som diskuterar teman kring internationalisering, global arbetsfördelning, arbetsvillkor och privatisering av äldreomsorg. Hon frågar sig hur villkoren för pensionsmigration kan jämföras med andra typer av migration. Hon väcker även en rad aktuella frågor om vilka migranter som anses mer önskvärda än andra, enligt vem och varför.

    Boken bygger på ett fyraårigt forskningsprojekt med stöd från Vetenskapsrådet och Forte.

    Swedish retirement migrants in Spain: mobility and eldercare in an aging Europe2016Inngår i: Family life in an age of migration and mobility: Global Perspectives through the Life Course / [ed] Majella Kilkey, Ewa Palenga-Möllenbeck, London: Palgrave Macmillan, 2016, s. 237-259Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In the neoliberal era, privatization and internationalization are of crucial importance to conditions for eldercare in the European Union (EU),including Sweden, which has one of the highest rates of public provisionin Europe. Swedish retirees are part of a growing stream of older Northern Europeans who migrate to Southern Europe, especially to coastal areas in Spain. There are about 90,000 Swedish citizens living in Spain (Hedlund 2011). During the retirement life course phase, circumstances change, highlighting that retirement is dynamic rather than one distinctive phase. When Swedish retirees in Spain become increasingly in need of eldercare, they find themselves in a country with one of the lowest rates of public provision in Europe, and are left with a patchwork of private solutions. The pieces in the ‘elderly care puzzles’ (Szebehely 2004) that form the patchwork of care around older persons depend on the accessibility and affordability of a number of options: public/private provision, social/volunteer networks, family situation, as well as the preferences and conditions of different groups of older persons. Gender, health,socio-economic conditions, as well as Swedish and Spanish provision of health- and eldercare influence the mobility of international retirement migrants (IRMs), especially in the case of widows and single women with low income. This chapter discusses the conditions for mobility and independent aging in relation to a wide range of Swedish IRMs in Spain. We illuminate the mobility of IRMs as Europeans in the context of Freedom of Movement, and its limits. Below we outline the welfare and migration context of Swedish retirement migration to Spain. Subsequently, we analyze the economic, gendered and health factors that circumscribe themobility and immobility of different IRMs.

    (Ine)quality of life: Lithuanian labor migration to Sweden during the economic crisis and its aftermath, 2008-20132019Inngår i: Journal of Baltic Studies, ISSN 0162-9778, E-ISSN 1751-7877, Vol. 50, nr 1, s. 79-104Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article connects micro and macro scales of inequality to Lithuanians decisions to depart to Sweden during the economic crisis with austerity measures and its aftermath (2008-2013). This period revealed unequal opportunities regarding the quality of life that were largely created by the gradual re-commodification of labor as well as unaddressed income and social inequalities which had existed since the 1990s. Nevertheless, macro inequalities did not directly lead to the exit decision. Rather, this was bound to the individuals perception of the leaving opportunity and (possible) quality of life for oneself and ones family across time and space.

    Lost in Mobility?: Labour Migration from Baltic Lithuania to Sweden2018Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis seeks to make both theoretical and empirical contributions to the understanding of intra-EU mobility, with a focus on labour migration from Lithuania to Sweden. Inspired by a critical realist perspective, the thesis aims to help to explain the dynamics and individual decision-making behind mass labour emigration from the Baltic states, its socioeconomic consequences and policy responses. Theoretically, the thesis proposes a model that synthesizes a social transformation approach with an extended version of Hirschman’s analytical framework of exit, voice and loyalty. The three empirical articles, based mainly on semi-structured interviews, are situated within this framework. Two of the articles seek to explain the migrants’ decision-making process of stay-exit-entrance in the context of the structural-institutional social changes that followed (1) independence from the Soviet Union in 1990; (2) EU accession in 2004; and (3) the 2008/2009 economic crisis with austerity. The third article brings into the debate the perspective of the sending Baltic countries, in a broader context of the East-West migration debate.   

    The dissertation shows that the consequences of the neoliberal policies of the post-communist and post-crisis transformations, together with the construction of formal migration channels after EU accession, constitute various migrant categories. Individual strategies of actively looking for channels to exit and enter, combining them in different ways at various points of the migratory process and establishing informal social networks are re-constituting who can be and who is a migrant. Furthermore, following the economic crisis and austerity measures, the decision to emigrate extends beyond individual survival strategies, instead becoming bound to an individual’s perception of the (ine)quality of life and pursuit of a better quality of life for oneself and one’s family across time and in different places. Finally, as the interviewed Baltic experts agree, the EU’s policy of the free movement is socially and economically problematic, although the official Baltic states’ policy responses focus primarily on ‘talented’ and ‘needed’ diaspora members’ return or engagement. These policies have proved to be inadequate to address demographic and socioeconomic challenges in part brought about by emigration.

    The structural-institutional conditions, states’ and migrants’ strategies engender mobility as a social norm in the sending countries and promote and constitute the perpetuation of migration of both ‘precarious labour migrants’ and ‘active talented EU mobile citizens’.

    Abstract [en]

    At a time when migration policy has moved to the centre of national and European policy agendas, the three Baltic states are taking their first steps towards building a cohesive policy response to emigration. This is especially important in the wake of the global financial crisis, which generated an increased outflow from the Baltic states.

    The Baltic states are facing variety of challenges in part caused by this movement of mainly working-age men and women: demographic issues related to an ageing society, labour market challenges and social security system sustainability. Within this context, the discussion of human resource losses is growing in the public sphere in the Baltic states.

    Based on interviews with experts in labour and migration in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania and a review of key national policy documents, this article analyses the commonalities among and differences between these three countries’ national responses.

    Despite some variations in the characteristics and extent of emigration from the three countries, the interviewed experts agree that the European Union’s policy of free mobility is socially and economically problematic. As the interviews indicate, there have been strong calls in Latvia and Lithuania for a more cohesive intra-European migration management policy to address current imbalances between EU member states and ensure that the loss of human resources in sending countries is accounted for in the recruitment policies of receiving countries. On another hand, Estonia experiences more circular movement patterns and demonstrates a rather liberal view towards migration issues, seeing a virtue in the (regional) open market.

    Defying Human Security: The Commodification of Migrants in Contemporary Libya2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The world-system today promotes inequalities between and within states through the maintenance and strengthening of uneven and hierarchical global relations established by colonialism. The reinforcement of colonial structures has unfolded into neocolonial relations in the post-colonial world, explaining the underdevelopment and marginalization of former colonies in the world-system today, and why many African countries largely experience internal instability on several fronts, revealing how individuals from these states tend to experience some sort of human insecurity. This scenario is permissive to the development of the new wars – representing a different perspective on the patterns of violence and war of contemporaneity – and the new global war economy and its parallel economy. It is from this context that the commodification of migrants happens, challenging and often defying migrants’ access to human rights andhuman security. The present study is therefore primarily a theoretical research and an empirical investigation on the commodification of migrants in contemporary Libya, sustained by four main theoretical frameworks and the analysis of selected secondary materials from international organizations and NGOs. This study aims at addressing the different forms of commodification of migrants in Libya today and who are the actors that control these markets and benefit from the commodification of human life. This analysis evidences the contradiction between the bleak reality of migrants in contemporary Libya and the applicability of the normative concepts of human securityand migrants’ rights.

    Forskningssamverkan i politik och praktik: En översikt av initiativ och metoder för utvärdering av forskningskvalitet och genomslag2015Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här rapporten har utformats med utgångspunkt i LiUs arbete med att, utifrån ett organisatoriskt perspektiv, utveckla stöd för forskningssamverkansprocesser samt dokumentera forskningens samhälleliga genomslag. Syftet med rapporten är att ge en översiktlig omvärldsanalys för forskningssamverkan då detta aktualiserats såväl nationellt som internationellt. Förhoppningen är att denna rapport ska fungera som ett diskussionsunderlag för miljöernas forskare i syfte att bidra till utvecklingen av den egna verksamheten. Vår ambition är att sätta samverkan i ett historiskt perspektiv men också bygga vidare på den samverkanstradition som präglar LiU. Även om fokus för denna rapport är Linköpings universitet tror vi att de problem och utmaningar som LiU står inför gäller för fler lärosäten.

    Authoritarianism in Turkey and Migration Crisis — Refugees in Turkey’s “Authoritarian” Drift2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The main goal of this thesis is to explain the role of refugees for the legitimization of competitive authoritarianism in Turkey. Recent scholarship has mainly focused on the taxonomical debate about the type of regime established in Turkey; the aspects explaining the Turkish autocratization along with its ramifications on civil liberties in all of Turkey—invalidating electoral competition and even revoking bourgeois democracy, and rarely zoomed on the function of refugees for the legitimization of competitive authoritarianism as well as effects upon internal dynamics caused by the peculiarities of Turkey’s national and international politics. This thesis builds upon prior research by developing an argument that Turkish’s authoritarian regime has used the “refugee crisis” to gain external recognition and refocus external support away from democratic consolidation to the promise of competitive authoritarian stability in the process of securitizing migration.

    By applying Steven Levitsky and Lucan A. Way’s framework, which underlines the catalyst role played by the transformative effects of external actors for the rise of competitive authoritarianism after the Cold War, the thesis analyzes the Competitive Authoritarianism phenomenon and its effect on refugees over the course of interactions among competitive authoritarianism and threats, and opportunities by both domestic and international environments as the major cause explaining Syrians’ long-term humanitarian and development challenges in Turkey. It also includes an analysis of Turkey’s own bid through the concept of securitization to underpin the research.

    In order to do so, an interdisciplinary qualitative study with a qualitative content analysis and discourse analysis in a contemporary historical approach drawing on the political sciences is effectively applied to the political material. The fact that Turkey has not taken a comprehensive approach in regard to Syrians residing in the country; and yet, only a tiny fraction of those were naturalized in the last years. The study shows that the matter of survival as the main agenda of the regime, political decisions of authorities and officials along with their national and international consequences are more likely to develop exclusionary social scenes. Recent developments have resulted in changed norms, practices, policies and the “way of doing things” presented by the “new regime.”

    Försvarad demokrati?: -En analys av diskurserna kring FRA-lagens legitimering.2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Försvarad demokrati är ett arbete som genom en diskursanalys tar sig en närmare titt på debatten år 2008 om en utökad FRA-lag med sikte på att kritiskt analysera hur partierna med hjälp utav olika diskurser behandlar och vrider begrepp för att få dem att överstämma med den egna idén om hur vi bör förhålla oss till hotet. Arbetet kommer också reflektera över hur vi i en allt mer flytande modern värld försöker gör det flytande och okända fast för att på så sätt få någon typ utav kontroll över det samhälle som vi skapat oss. Genom att belysa de politiska diskurserna kring hot och demokrati i debatten om en utökad FRA-lag bidrar arbetet till att skapa en förståelse kring hur människor i en demokrati med demokratiska ideal, så som integritet samt tryck- och yttrandefrihet, genom relationen till hot accepterar att bli systematiskt och storskaligt övervakade utav sin egen stat. Därav också övervakade av sin egen demokrati.

    Neither victim nor fetish: ‘Asian’ women and the effects of racialization in the Swedish context2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    People who are racialized in Sweden as ‘Asian’—a panethnic category—come from different countries or ethnic backgrounds and yet, often face similar, gender-specific forms of discrimination which have a significant impact on their whole lives. This thesis centres women who are racialized as 'Asian', focusing on how their racialization affects, and is shaped by, their social, professional and intimate relationships, and their interactions with others—in particular, with white majority Swedes, but also other ethnic minorities. Against a broader context encompassing discourses concerning ‘Asians’ within Swedish media, art and culture, Swedish ‘non-racist’ exceptionalism and gender equality politics, the narratives of nine women are analysed through the lenses of the racializing processes of visuality and coercive mimeticism, and epistemic injustice.

    To Menstruate In Peace: Embodied experiences of menstruation during migration.2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Female specific experiences of migration arelacking in mainstream migration studies, even though women make up almost half of the demographic of migrating people. Based on qualitative narrative interviews with six women the primary aim of this thesis is to show how the women negotiated their migrations from a primarily embodied theoretical approach which focuses on feelings in and ofthe body in relation to menstruation within the context of migration. The importance of viewing context or rather situationas constitutive for how women can ‘be’ or ‘not be’ women is decisive for the embodiment approach and provides an understanding for the prescriptive nature of norms in general and gender norms in particular. Overall, the situation of migration positioned the female gender norm and the innate bodily function of menstruation as a counterforce of agency for the women, severely limiting their scopes of agency leading to fear, hyper vigilance and self-policingin a manner that the women did not experience was present for men surrounding them. The additional mental strain that menstruation placedon the women severely aggravated their experiences of migration, a mental strain that was solely connected to fear in relation to their bodies.

    An Aesthetic Education of Social Theory: Some Comments on Robin Wagner-Pacifici’s What is an Event?2018Inngår i: Distinktion Scandinavian Journal of Social Theory, ISSN 1600-910X, E-ISSN 2159-9149, Vol. 19Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    An essay on Robin Wagner-Pacifici's 'What Is and Event?' (2017). The essay argues that Wagner-Pacifici's book offers a platform from which it again becomes possible to rethink the relationship between system and transformation, and that this is precisely what the human and social sciences need if they are to retain their ability to critically interpret the dense fabric of late capitalist society and culture – a society of the spectacle if there ever was one, a world from heel to head made up by events. The essay assess Wagner-Pacifici's analytical apparatus of political semiosis, and it shows that aesthetics, and literary and visual interpretation, to a large extent explains why Wagner-Pacifici can make a tremendous contribution to a theory of political emergence. Finally, the essay argues that aesthetic theory offers an intersection where social theory and the theory of history may begin a new conversation about human agency, social change and historical experie

    Clashing internationalisms: east European narratives of west European integration2016Inngår i: Europe faces Europe: narratives from its eastern half / [ed] Johan Fornäs, Bristol: Intellect Ltd., 2016Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter analyzes how West European integration was viewed in communist Eastern Europe at the time of the foundation of the EU. Throughout the period from the Schuman declaration and the creation of the European Coal and Steel Community in 1951 to the Treaty of Rome and the establishment of the European Economic Community in 1957, Moscow, Berlin, Prague, Budapest, and Warsaw reacted, in part by criticizing the West European integration project as a continuation of Europe’s imperial and capitalist past, in part by projecting ideas for a wholly different European and global integration project. While this debate was patterned on the cold war logic and the clash between capitalist and communist ideologies, it also contained a profound – and lasting – dispute regarding Europe’s geopolitical position and role, especially in relation to its African colonies. After the fall of the communist East, this dispute was apparently settled to the West’s favor, and it was then forgotten. Yet, varieties of the same dispute today reappear as the EU seeks to develop a foreign policy and global mission for the twenty-first century. By using sources mainly from the Soviet Union and the German Democratic Republic that have so far been largely neglected in scholarship, the chapter evinces a East-European narrative about Europe’s calling and destiny that merits particular attention in today’s emerging pluricentric world order.

    Abstract [en]

    This essay examines a central problem in historiography: how are radical social changes and political transformations represented in history? This problem concerns the figuration of agency and causality in historical explanations of revolutions and periods of sudden social disintegration and reintegration.

    A brief look at historiographies of modernity and modern society shows that ”the crowd” or ”the masses” – or, more generally, popular revolts and uprisings – are often introduced as explanations of such moments of transition. How do such explanations work, in which “the masses” are referred to as a historical causality and agent? To which extent can such explanations be seen as a general feature of histories of modern and contemporary history? These will be important questions in this essay.

    I draw examples and cases from 19th- and 20th-Century European historiography, historical sociology, history of literature and the arts.  In my earlier studies of the category of “the masses” in European political and cultural history, I have noted many such instances, from the French Revolution onward (Canetti offers a very interesting example, which I will perhaps focus on.) To make my discussion more relevant, I will also discuss reports and commentaries on the change and transformations that, allegedly, were generated by spontaneous collective movements in 2011–2013. What can a picture or an eyewitness account of the Tahrir Square in February 2011 tell us about historical causality?

    Underlying the notion of the crowd and the protesting collective as a historiographic motif in histories of modernity, there seems to be a certain understanding of collectivity as a trope or figure that, in a paradoxical sense, is introduced as a device for representing historical moments characterized by radical singularity – moments which are therefore ”unrepresentable” in an epistemological sense. Since masses and multitudes are plural agents marked by boundlessness and heterogeneity, they have apparently served historians well as explanations or causes of events that break existing political and social frames.

    The essay investigates whether this mode of explanation is empirical or figural, or both. Simply put, do crowds and collective revolts really explain historical transitions? Or do they serve mainly as tropes and substitutes, which impute some kind of causality and agency on events that are so complex that they surpass the explanatory power of historical categories or, indeed, of historiography as such?

    Abstract [sv]

    Gängse historieskrivning behandlar kollektiva protester som länkar i den politiska demokratins historia i mer snäv bemärkelse. Protesten är här ett skiljetecken i en löpande text om hur olika representationsformer inrättas och förändras: rösträtten, partierna, de sociala rörelserna, de lagstiftande församlingarna samt alla andra organisationer, institutioner och instrument varigenom folksuveränen eftersökt ”klädnaden” som ”smiter åt tätt kring folkets kropp”, som Camille Desmoulins säger i Büchners drama Dantons död. Problemet är att historieskrivningen ägnat sig nästan helt åt klädnaden, de politiska formerna. Bara undantagsvis har vi intresserat oss för kroppen, den oformliga, föränderliga och av miljontals lemmar bestående begärsorganism med sitt stora överskott av ”massa”, som bara låter sig representeras partiellt, eller inte alls.

    Abstract [fr]

    Quels espoirs suscitent les Gilets jaunes pour le reste de l’Europe ou pour la société mondiale ? En tant qu’observateur de la périphérie nord du continent, je pose la question suivante : s’agit-il d’un épisode de plus dans l’histoire du militantisme populaire français qui, depuis 1789, a inspiré un radicalisme des pauvres tout comme il a inoculé la peur chez les riches ? Ou bien la séquence de ces protestations, acte par acte, samedi après samedi depuis près d’un an maintenant, marque-t-elle une urgence sociale et l’émergence d’une nouvelle forme politique ?

    Where humanism finds its ends: Lessons from Pia Arke and Katarina Pirak Sikku on the difficulty of narrating the Arctic2016Inngår i: Studies in Travel Writing, ISSN 1364-5145, E-ISSN 1755-7550, Vol. 20, nr 3, s. 1-11Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article argues that any attempt to conceive of a new narrative of the postcolonial Arctic will fail if it does not also entail a new narrative of European history. It begins by asserting the strong afterlife of colonial narratives of the Arctic through the example of the author’s own difficulty in writing an authentic, ethically acceptable report about East Greenland. By drawing on further examples, and by introducing narratological theory, the article moves on to consider the colonial narrative of the Arctic. It argues that the prototypical colonial narrative of the Arctic is modelled on Moby-Dick: a hunting and whaling story in which the setting is made up of landscape, wildlife and indigenous populations. The colonial narrative is gradually transformed as the indigenous peoples of the Arctic leave the setting and become agents in the narrative. Indeed, it is only when the indigene attains the place of the subject telling the story that we can seriously claim to have a postcolonial narrative of the Arctic. The article goes on to analyse two instances of such transformations of the colonial narrative: the works of the Danish-Greenlandic visual artist and researcher Pia Arke and the Sami visual artist Katarina Pirka Sikku. Both question the narrating subject in travel literature and scientific discourse about the Arctic, reclaiming that position for themselves.
