    A Worthy Reception? Ambivalences in Social Work with Refugees and Migrants in Sweden2018In: Advances in Social Work, ISSN 1527-8565, Vol. 18, no 3, p. 983-1004Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this article is to analyze how reception practices and the meaning of a “worthy” reception of refugees and migrants are negotiated in encounters between various receiving actors in times of shifting Swedish migration policies. The analysis is grounded in ethnographic methodology and draws on data collected in 2016. The aim of the study was to document experiences of the so-called “refugee crisis” in Europe and Scandinavia from a bottom-up perspective among professionals and volunteers narrated during reference group meetings. The reference groups consisted of representatives from state and municipal agencies, the private sector, and civil society organizations. The actors represented in the mixed reference groups were diverse, but all were involved in reception activities. In the analysis we have combined political philosophy about willingness versus ability to receive refugees and migrants with postcolonial theoretical perspectives on concurrent claims and voices. We identified three themes that are central in the negotiation of the practice and meaning of a “worthy reception”: first, the overlooked existential needs of refugees and migrants; second, the lack of gender- and diversity-sensitive reception practices; and third, ambivalences in relation to various refugees groups in times of shifting migration policies. We recommend that in order to promote a worthy reception of refugees and migrants, existential needs must be taken care of and gender- and diversity-sensitive practices must be developed. Another recommendation is to recognize how migration policy limits a society’s ability to receive refugees and migrants, but also affects the willingness among those actors who receive.

    Abstract [en]

    The article uses a political economy approach to analyze the preferences of the social partners SN and LO and to identify the coincided and disparate interests which the two organizations tried to defend in relation to labour migration in the debate prior to the Swedish labour migration policy reform in 2008. In contrast to presumptions by Varieties of Capitalism (VoC) scholars,the results of this article reveal that SN has preferred a market-liberal labour migration policy regime at odds with institutional traditions of the Swedish labour market model. However, LO has instead preferred a state-coordinated and regulated labour migration policy regime. In contrast to SN, LO’s preferences reflected basic trade union interests to limit the supply of labour and to minimize potential negative effects for the functioning of the Swedish labour market model. Moreover, the article suggests the importance of changed power relations between the social partners and a shift of Swedish government to explain SN’s influence in the debate prior to the labour migration policy change 2008 in a market-liberal direction.

    Swedish Employers and Trade Unions, Labor Migration and the Welfare State: Perspectives on Swedish Labor Migration Policy Debates during the 1960s and the 2000s2014In: Nordic Journal of Working Life Studies, ISSN 2245-0157, E-ISSN 2245-0157, Vol. 4, no 1, p. 97-118Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article uses a political economy approach and explores the nexus between labor migrationand the welfare state and how its specificities have been viewed and presented by organizedinterests of employers and trade unions in Swedish labor migration policy debates during the1960s and the 2000s. The analysis demonstrates that the Swedish Employers’ Confederation(SAF) and its organizational successor the Swedish Confederation of Enterprise (SN) have preferreda market-liberal labor migration policy. Over time, a liberal immigration policy has beenviewed by employers as an important policy solution to extend levels of economic growth, increasefirm competitiveness, and maintain funding for generous welfare state services. However, since the1960s the Swedish Trade Union Confederation (LO) has preferred a state-coordinated and regulatedlabor migration policy. In LO’s perspective, a regulated immigration policy is a fundamentalprecondition for guaranteeing workers’ rights, and for minimizing potential negative effects for thefunctioning of the Swedish labor market model and for a prosperous Swedish welfare state.

    "Så gör vi inte här i Sverige. Vi brukar göra så här": Retorik och praktik i LO:s invandrarpolitik 1945-19812008Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The primary purpose of this thesis is to analyse the Swedish Trade Union Confederation, the LO’s, mediated rhetoric, arguments and social and institutional practices in the process of forming the LO’s policy regarding the introduction, incorporation and participation of immigrants in Swedish society in general, the workplace and the trade union movement in the period 1945–1981. The theoretical purpose is to explore how power relations of superiority and subordination based primarily on the categories of class, ethnicity and nation, but also on gender and to some extent generation, have been formed through ideological processes of inclusion and boundary drawing in rhetorical speeches, texts and institutional practices within the framework of an explicit class-based community as the LO constituted.

    The results demonstrate that the LO had an ambivalent attitude towards labour immigration in an expanding post-war Swedish economy. On the one hand the trade unions accepted that industrial growth and general welfare reforms were dependent on the labour supply. On the other hand, the LO feared that uncontrolled labour immigration would be a disadvantage for indigenous workers, since wages could be kept low and obsolete industrial sectors could be maintained and the “solidarity wage policy” could be endangered because of the influx of migrant labour. Organising the immigrants was a central part of the union movement’s strategy, and the LO also insisted from the very beginning on equal wages and employment conditions between indigenous and immigrant workers to avoid wage pressures. During the second half of the 1960s and the 1970s, the LO repeatedly argued that the scale of immigration should be weighted against factors such as access to work, housing, social services, education and language teahcing.

    One major argument in the thesis is that within the LO, immigration policy measures were perceived to be a functional “adaptation” of immigrants to the already defined institutions, norms and national culture of the Swedish majority society. Accordingly, the immigrants were expected to adapt themselves to the “normal” Swedish and social democratic way of doing things in a rational and organised manner. During the 1970s, Swedish language training and company introduction with union attendance, translated information bulletins about the Swedish labour market and society, union courses and study circles could be seen as central means in a process of socialisation and “normalisation”. These policy measures were dimensions of a social democratic ideological identity project within the trade union movement, which was constructed as a symbol of the given national order and “the Swedish way of doing things”. The results also demonstrate how class, ethnicity, nation and gender have worked as structuring principles of power and status within the LO.

    Kulturarvets inkluderingar och exkluderingar: Insamlingar av berättesler om och med invandrare vid Nordiska museet ca 1970-19152015In: Forsa Symposium, Det globala i det lokala, Norrköping, 23-24 mars, 2015., 2015Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Forskningsprojektets övergripande syfte är att bidra med ny kunskap om hur tillkomsten av insamlingar av berättelser vid kulturarvsinstitutioner återspeglar, men även bidrar till skapandet av nationella självbilder och processer av social inkludering och exkludering i samhället. Nordiska Museet är den kulturarvsinstitution, vars insamlingsverksamhet har valts ut som empiriskt exempel. Dekonstruktion används som metod när vi studerar fem insamlingsprocesser och samlingar av berättelser från och med ”invandrare” mellan ca 1970–2015. Vi analyserar hur olika förståelser av sociala kategorier, som klass, kön, etnicitet har format frågeformulär, intervjusituationer och insamlade berättelser och därmed bidragit till ett inkluderande och exkluderande kulturarvsskapande i relation till olika grupper i samhället. Projektet ger ökad kunskap om hur kulturarvsinstitutioners (in)samlingar kan bidra, och i det förflutna har bidragit till, socialt inkluderande och exkluderande gemenskaper. Studien bidrar till att öka kunskapen om hur samhällets maktstrukturer och löpande förändring med globalisering och migration avspeglas i insamlingarna och i berättelserna. Projektet belyser även förutsättningarna för kulturarvsinstitutioner som Nordiska Museet att realisera ett inkluderande kulturarvsarbete och en socialt hållbar samhällsutveckling i ett alltmer heterogent samhälle kännetecknat av en mångfald kulturarv och berättelser.

    Abstract [en]

    Remembering the migration. Intersectional perspectives on the Nordic Museum’s collections and selections of immigrant narrativese Swedish self-image has been transformed in recent decades from the self-image of a homogeneous country with immigrants to a self-perception of a multicultural society. In this article we investigate how memory institutions contribute to constructing and dissolving the boundaries of the Swedish community by including or excluding immigrants in the constructions of a national self-perception. e ongoing collection ”Remembering the Migration” at the Nordic Museum constitutes the empi- rical case study. e current collection and previous collections of different immigrant narratives at the museum are examples of documentation of subjective experiences and interpretations of the mul- ticultural society in Sweden against a background of increased migration in the postwar period.

    Our analysis concludes that the collection, ”Remembering the Migration” has an including per- spective. ere is an outspoken objective to incorporate the immigrants’ stories about migration in the common historiography and the national cultural heritage in multicultural Sweden. However, our study also shows that the questionnaire used in the collection lacks questions about experiences of discrimination or racism and thereby contributes to recreating a tacit narrative about Sweden as an inclusive and non-racist country or nation. is self-perception is also generated at the website of the Museum, where a selection of 17 collected narratives are published. In general none of these stories tell about experiences of racism or discrimination. On the contrary, most narrators in these narratives position themselves as well-included in Swedish society, mostly through their personal efforts of hard work and/or ambitious studies. However, our study indicates that this including, multicultural and non-racist self-perception is questioned and negotiated by some people who submitted their life stories and rather reveals that Sweden is characterized by, and has previously been characterized by, both inclusion and exclusion in relation to migrants. Furthermore our ana- lysis of the published excerpts from the life stories reveals that exclusion could also be experienced from gender and class positions as well as in some cases also on the basis of ethnicity.

    Power and resistance in the making of the cultural heritage in the archive of Nordiska museet: A case study of the collection Migration Finland–Sweden (ca 1970–1989)2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Interviewing and archiving both entail selecting what should and should not be kept. A small part of all records and narratives become parts of archives. In oral history, the researcher usually decides who to interview and who not to interview. However, who is selecting and what happens when an archive or museum decides to collect narratives from certain groups or individuals in society? In this paper we will use one specific collecting processes of narratives by Finnish immigrants at the archive of the Nordic Museum, as a case study, to discuss the archive of the Nordic Museum as production site of knowledge on Swedish cultural history and how the institutional practices of the archive also may contribute to a specific kind of knowledge production.

    Collections and collecting processes about and with persons categorised as immigrants at the archive of the Nordic Museum in Sweden in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    In our current research project, we investigate how and under what conditionsa narrating cultural heritage – narratives about and by immigrants – has been created and collected at the Nordic Museum. In this presentation we explore the procedures, conditions of their creation and content of three collections of narratives (viva voce interviews and written life stories) – archived at the Museum at different times from the beginning of the 1970s to 2015 – by and about persons categorised as immigrants. This was a period marked by the conversion of Sweden's self-perception as a homogeneous country with immigrants into that of a multicultural society. With intersectionality as a theoretical tool, we study how social categories such as nation, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class and generation are used in the materials, interview extracts and questionnaires to construct narratives of inclusion and exclusion in relation to Swedish society. We also present analyses of a few interviews and/or written life stories from the different collections in order to illustrate how normative social categories and positions are narrated, negotiated and/or resisted by the interviewed subjects in the collected and archived materials.

    Narratives about Sweden: Collecting processes about and with persons categorized as immigrants at the Nordic Museum in Sweden i the twentieth and twnty-first centuries2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we will shortly present the design of a research project under construction as well as the results and reflections from a minor pre-study/analysis.The history of Sweden as a country of immigration has been written almost exclusively from the Swedish state’s perspective. The diverse experiences, that immigrant women and men have had in meetings with “Sweden” at different times lacks its place in the contemporary writing of history. Never before have their stories been systematically compiled and analyzed as a part of and a point of departure for writing Swedish (immigration) history. Neither have there been any studies over time nor contexts on how the Swedish self-image(s) has changed in relation to immigrated people and how this self-image is related to the inclusion or exclusion of the immigrants. In the project we are aiming at writing a multivocal Swedish (immigration) history based on immigrants’ narratives about Sweden. This is done through a survey of all and a study of some selected collections of collected and archived interviews with persons in Sweden categorized as immigrants from different times and places. These “collections of immigrant narratives” are spread all over Sweden and have been collected by different museums, archives and other “memory institutions” with diverse purposes, in different times and in different local contexts. In the project we are illuminating questions as when, where, why and by which institution, archive or museum narratives from different individuals or groups have been collected? Moreover, in the research project we investigate both the contexts of the collections and the contents of the individual interviews/ life stories. Concerning the analysis of the individual interviews we are interested in analyzing who is asked to and how are the interviewees asked to tell their life story? What questions are they asked to answer? What subjects are they asked to reflect and narrate about? However, we also look upon the interviews/life stories as retrospective narratives on what it was like to come to Sweden at a specific time and to a specific place. In the paper our research interests revolve around both the contexts of the different collections and issues of representation. Concerning the aspect of representation, our will is to investigate who is selected to represent at different times and places? And what are the interviewees supposed to be representing? Accordingly, we assert that how and what the persons actually narrate about their experiences and lives imply epistemological and methodological questions. We are using the findings in a minor pre-study as a point of departure for the paper. The paper will address and reflect our thoughts and problems with working with materials (narratives, interviews and life stories) that have been created, collected and archived by different “memory institutions” in Sweden. Furthermore, the paper will address ethical perspectives and methodological challenges on (re)presenting selves and others, both how this (re)presentation is done in archives as well as in the texts we write as historians from our uses and analysis of the materials in the collections/archives.

    Narratives from multi-cultural Sweden: posittioning and identification in immigrant collections at the archive of the Nordic Museum 1970-20152016In: Oral history, ISSN 0143-0955, Vol. 44, no 2, p. 81-90Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is inspired by a cultural approach to oral history which argues that narrators draw on public discourses in constructing narratives for an audience. It also contributes to debates in oral history on the re-use of archived interviews, by arguing that the oral historian has to consider how memory institutions create and preserve oral history collections, and contribute to the shaping of narra tives of history. By investigating positioning and identification in immigrant collections at the archive of the Nordic Museum from 1970-2015, the article also engages with debates in oral history about collec tive and individual remembering by discussing how the individual narrators can resist and transform narratives of the museum about categories such as immigrants, Swedes and Swedishness.
