The Case of Vanishing Borders: Theorizing Diversity Management as Internal Border Control
Linnaeus University, Faculty of Business, Economics and Design, Linnaeus School of Business and Economics.
2010 (English)In: Organization, ISSN 1350-5084, E-ISSN 1461-7323, Vol. 17, no 1, p. 31-52Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article adopts a postcolonial lens to contribute to the theorizing of diversity management. It draws on an empirical study of a Swedish municipal school for adults in order to theorize how construction of privileged and disadvantaged ethnic identities is an integral diversity management practice, situated in the Swedish context. Further, the article looks not only at limiting identity construction effects, but also at the traces of ongoing resistance. The contribution of the postcolonial lens in the study of workplace diversity lies in the conceptual space it provides for rendering visible, and legitimizing, non-traditional forms of resistance to hierarchical differentiation of cultural identities.
