Abstract [en]

My research is directed towards newly arrived children’s perceptions of participation in preschool and in a so called International class. Aim is to highlight experiences of involvement in preschool and the creation of identity. Which deals are given? How is social life created in preschool?

Wigg (2008) who has studied the consequences of being forced to break up and restart shows three identities called alienation, ambivalence and activity. She discusses students’ participation, schooling and the creation of identiy.

Benhabib (2004), who is reasoning about education, citizenship and obligations, writes that “democratic citizenship requires obligations, obligations requires responsibility and deepening loyalty".

A life story approach, narrative analyze and an idea analyze of steering document is used. Empirical data is collected in terms of interviews of newly arrived children’s, teachers and steering documents concerning their education.

Parental permission to interview their children is received. The sampled life individual stories are read and re-told by me as new stories why all informants remain anonymous.

Steering document shows that the school has a democratic educational task which means teaching and establishing respect for human rights and fundamental democratic values that the Swedish society is based on (Ministry of Education, 2011). It is important for the education to support and prepare young people to live and function in society (Ministry of Education, 2011).

Future preschool and community is facing a challenge that is about to achieve a fusion of democratic equality and cultural diversity (Benhabib, 2004), participation and the creation of identity.
