    The reception of separated minors in Sweden: To receive with grace and knowledge2015In: Participation, Integration, and Recognition: Changing Pathways to Immigrant Incorporation / [ed] Elli Heikkilä, Auvo Kostiainen, Johanna Leinonen, Ismo Söderling, Turku: Institute of Migration , 2015, p. 111-124Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this article is to describe the reception of separated minors in Sweden and analyse some central ideas and ethics as they are manifested, interpreted and practiced by professionals involved in the reception system. What impact do these ideas and ethics have on separated children? This article is based on extensive fieldwork consisting of more than 100 interviews and observations among actors in the reception system. Theories of differences and similarities are used to investigate how professionals perceive minors both as normal teenagers and as culturally different aliens who need to become “Swedish”. The study concludes that a combination of the ideas of similarities and differences, where the minors are recognised as persons with various backgrounds and experiences, could upon reflection result in a more gracious reception.

    Between empowerment and powerlessness: Separated minors in Sweden2012In: New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, ISSN 1520-3247, E-ISSN 1534-8687, Vol. 2012, no 136, p. 65-77Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyzes the migration experiences of thirteen separated minors who arrived in Sweden between 1943 and 2008. Using the framework of "dislocation" and the "liberated self," this chapter shows that the experiences of separated minors are shaped in the intersection between contexts and conditions of transnational migration and the Swedish reception system. Their efforts to continue living based on the past and building a new life during a period of transition between different countries and between childhood and adulthood can be described as "a life on hold." The paradox that migration serves simultaneously to empower and render children powerless is discussed.

    Language interpreting and brokering in Swedish public service institutions: the use of children for multilingual communication2019In: Revista de Llenguia i Dret, Journal of language and law, ISSN 0212-5056, Vol. 71, p. 13-26Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to investigate experiences and consequences of using children as language brokers in Swedish public services. First, the two concepts of brokering and interpreting are discussed and compared. Then data obtained from quantitative and qualitative methods, including two online surveys with respondents in health care and social services, and seven group interviews that also include persons with experience of language brokering as children, are analysed and discussed. A main result is that there are discrepancies between how public service staff describe their experiences of using children as interpreters and how children describe their situation. The former assert that the use of children takes place irregularly, seldom, and only in critical situations or simple assignments. In contrast, interviewees with experiences of language brokering as children declare that they interpreted regularly, every day, and in all kinds of situations. They testify that they were neither asked for consent nor was their presence questioned. Although contradictory, both perspectives are relevant and describe the reality of those who participated in the surveys and group interviews. The discrepancy can be explained by the fact that parents and relatives of the brokering children often have encounters with different public service institutions several times a week. If all of them in their practice legitimize the use of children at simple, acute, or single occasions, it ends up as full-time work from the perspective of the child. The discussion further focuses on the consequences for patients and service users in terms of legal certainty and discrimination.

    Crafting futures in a Lebanese refugee camp: the Burj el Barajneh Souk2018In: Proceedings of Relating Systems Thinking and Design (RSD6) 2017 Symposium: Book of Abstracts / [ed] Birger Sevaldson, 2018, p. 104-105Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The idea behind this project began through an ethnographic study of the Bourj el Barajneh Palestinian Camp’s population. Through the research and the understanding of the camp on all levels the project aims to use architectural methods to address the political and social relationships within the enclosed city and its surrounding neighbourhoods.

    The sustainable and ephemeral Souk will empower an existing network of talent and craftsmanship; creating a metaphorical bridge that both connects and brings together segregated divisions on the political, social and urban level. The camp will be rejuvenated from within, as the Souk will assist in elevating the current population.

    This project begins on a micro scale by working with what is already present and building upon it, creating a sustainable living structure. An architectural configuration will regenerate what is stagnant and fixed, strengthen the existing craftsmen, and improve on the new ephemeral and temporary formation.

    The chosen space for the project within the camp is an already living and breathing organism. It is a social space, a market place and an area where the craftsmen have settled. After developing a master plan through different architectural strategies; concealing, constructing, regenerating and extending methods, this particular area stood out, as it’s already a platform with social, educational and industrial integrated programmes.

    The current Souk will be renovated into a space that connects to the present research circles in Lebanon for creative design projects, this will mobilize and utilize the camp’s local talent while developing and expanding on the current knowledge and concepts needed to support a sustainable economy. As the Souk moves into the macro scale of the project it will tie into business support projects; which include shared distribution services, shared administration platforms for cooperatives with micro-banking and micro-insurance programmes.

    Self-employed immigrants and their employees: evidence from Swedish employer-employee data2020In: Review of Economics of the Household, ISSN 1569-5239, E-ISSN 1573-7152, Vol. 18, no 1, p. 35-68Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We present a study of the employees of self-employed immigrants with unincorporated firms in Sweden using matched employer-employee data from 2014. Non-European immigrants are more likely than natives to have employees in their firms. Furthermore, immigrants, especially non-European immigrants, are more likely than natives to employ immigrants in their firms, and non-European immigrants are most likely to employ recently arrived non-European immigrants with low education in their firms. Males are more likely than females to have employees in their firms, but self-employed females are more likely than self-employed males to have female employees. This is the case for all immigrant groups as well as for natives. We conclude that self-employed immigrants play a role in the labour market integration process since they create employment opportunities for immigrant groups that have difficulty entering the labour market.

    Samverkan i motstånd: ett utvecklingsprojekt för flerspråkig förskoleverksamhet2018In: NÄD2018 - Nationell Ämnesdidaktisk konferens 2018, 26-27 april 2018, Kristianstad, 2018, p. 20-20Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    I detta paper problematiseras samverkan i ett utvecklingsprojekt som genomförs i en förskoleavdelning med participatorisk ansats (PAR). Projektet genomförs på en avdelning med ett 20-tal barn mellan tre och fem år som inte talar någon eller mycket lite svenska. I participatorisk forskning ligger ofta tonvikten på utveckling av professionella praktiker på den enskilda arbetsplatsen. Handlingsutrymmet för pedagoger ligger dock inbäddat i strukturer som är svåra att påverka. Bland annat kan en strikt tillämpning av likvärdighetsprincipen medföra att det blir svårt att tillgodose specifika behov och förutsättningar, eller att utveckla nya modeller lokalt.

    The role of the university library in supporting international student transition: Insights from an Australian-American case study2018In: The journal of academic librarianship, ISSN 0099-1333, E-ISSN 1879-1999, Vol. 44, no 5, p. 582-594Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As an outcome of the Libraries and Information for International Students Project (LIISP), this paper presents insights into first year international students’ experiences of using library resources, services and spaces at their host university. It focuses on a collective case study conducted between 2014 and 2016 at one Australian and three North American libraries, with 320 first year international students. The research design was informed by the Project Information Literacy study of US first year domestic students’ library use (Head, 2013). Data were collected via survey and semi-structured interviews, and analyzed thematically. Findings of the four cases were compared with each other, and with the PIL study. Four key insights emerged:  International students are characterised by their diversity and individuality.  First year international students’ library and information use, and associated challenges are generally similar to those of US domestic first year students transitioning from high school to university.  The challenges international students experience generally relate to unfamiliarity of the socio-cultural environment and academic and library practices at their host university, rather than generalised educational deficit.  The library is vital to supporting international students’ transition to life and study at a host university. The findings inform library space design and inclusive transition support that integrates informed learning and transition pedagogy. They are relevant to university administrators, librarians and educators in culturally diverse higher education.

    Orientations of Europe: Boats, the Mediterranean Sea and the Materialities of Contemporary Mobility Regimes2018In: Borderlands e-journal, ISSN 1447-0810, E-ISSN 1447-0810, Vol. 17, no 2, p. 1-27Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is an investigation of how the specific design and materiality of the artefact of the boat, as well as the various material, visual, technical and geographical practices at work in the space of Mediterranean Sea, orientate a specific space and produce a selective politics of seeing, saving and framing of bodies on the move. It highlights how the very presence and movement of ‘unseaworthy boats’ in this actively orientated space of the sea brings to the fore the many strategies and techniques that have been employed to make it a space of European control. We argue that this is an active and deadly orientation carried out in an often dispersed number of practices and interventions within a seemingly flat space of water. The paper concludes that border transgressors’ act of moving by boat, with all of the losses involved, both challenge and potentially reorientate European mobility regimes.

    A Woman's Truth: Four Women's Personal Stories of Being Victims of Honor-Related Violence2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Honor related violence has become a recognized abuse all over the world and violence against women carried out by the men in their families is and has always been a resurfacing problem in all societies. This paper will focus on the problems which relate to cultures where honor related violence is a more common practice and will depart from societies where men can take violent actions against women in the name of family honor and hide behind cultural exemptions.

    This paper is written to create a deeper insight to the needs and wants of subjected women and to understand their own perception of this type of violence and its underlying causes.

    This paper takes on the view solely of the subjected women and is a direct presentation of their stories and their lives. Instead of using outside observers this paper goes directly to the women living in these types of situations and represents the women based on their own wants and needs from society and authority.

    The methodological framework for this paper is through an inductive process of writing and is through observations and unstructured interviews trying to build a systematic description revolving around the victims of honor related violence. The interviews, biographic narratives, will ask the participants to tell a story about their lives, a biographic narrative where they will freely speak and this will be facilitated during eight in-depth interviews with four different women who during many years lived under abuse carried out in the name of honor by two husband, a father, and several uncles.

    The results of these interviews lead to the conclusions that women often are ignored and forgotten by outside forces such as police and organizations until a crime is committed.

    Abstract [en]

    This action research project is aimed to study how heritage could be applied to allow immigrants solve their own problems within their own cultural context. My study has shown great potentialities of improving the life of the people who arrived to Sweden recently and the entire community in general. The study applies a participatory com-munity approach with the methodology to conduct the research with an intention to allow immigrants identify their problems and seek solutions in a cultural context, especially in areas where the services of the Municipality and State are not covering.

    Source country culture and labor market assimilation of immigrant women in Sweden: evidence from longitudinal data2018In: Review of Economics of the Household, ISSN 1569-5239, E-ISSN 1573-7152, Vol. 16, no 3, p. 585-627Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyzes the role of source country culture on gender roles for labor market assimilation of immigrant women in Sweden. Sweden ranks as one of the world's most gender-equal countries and at the same time a recipient of many immigrants from countries with more traditional views on gender roles and gender equality. I find that the labor force participation of immigrant women in Sweden is related to their source country culture, in the sense that women from countries where women's labor market participation is low (high) also have low (high) participation in the Swedish labor market. However, all immigrant women assimilate towards, but do not reach parity with, the participation rate of native women, and the difference between women from high- and low-participation countries diminishes with length of residence in Sweden. This indicates that source country culture on gender roles does not have a persistent effect on immigrant women's labor market participation in Sweden. Furthermore, the results highlight the importance of taking into account unobservable time-constant individual and source country factors when estimating the relationship between source country culture and immigrants' labor market outcomes. Neglecting to control for these factors could lead researchers to misrepresent the rate of assimilation and overstate the effect of source country culture.

    Migration between politics, journalism and PR: new conditions for power, citizenship and democracy?2014In: Nordicom Review, ISSN 1403-1108, E-ISSN 2001-5119, Vol. 35, no Special issue, p. 141-153Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article we present a preliminary theoretical background and some empirical findings concerning a migrating trend between the fields of politics, PR and journalism: one day a political reporter, the next a communication officer; one day a PR consultant, the next a state secretary. To understand contemporary politics one must, we argue, comprehend the convergence between three fields of power holders that together form the realm of politics and communication: elite politicians, elite political reporters and elite communication/PR officers. Together, they form a communication elite that sets the parameters for the public discourse on politics. When politics is produced and constructed in, and through, social networks formed by elite agents from politics, journalism and PR, what does this mean for how democracy is worked out and what does it mean for citizenship in general?

    Feelings of social alienation: a comparison of immigrant and non-immigrant Swedish youth2011In: International journal of sociology and social policy, ISSN 0144-333X, E-ISSN 1758-6720, Vol. 31, no 7/8, p. 456-468Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The objective of the study is to investigate the social alienation status of Swedish high school students with respect to gender and immigrant background.

    Design/methodology/approach – The sample was randomly selected from high school students aged 15‐19, and 446 students participated in the study. The Jessor and Jessor general alienation questionnaire was used to explore feelings of social alienation. Sequential multiple regression analyses were performed to examine the relationships between alienation, age, sex, and immigrant background.

    Findings – The results demonstrated a significant association between immigrant background and alienation. It was found that first‐generation immigrants felt more alienated than second‐generation immigrants and second‐generation immigrants felt more alienated than natives. Adolescents who were first‐generation immigrants had higher scores on the social isolation subscale than second generation immigrants and native Swedes. However, second generation immigrants had higher scores on the meaninglessness subscale than first‐generation immigrants and native Swedes. Age proved to have a significant quadratic component. The research found feeling of alienation significantly higher among youngest and oldest students but lower for those aged 17.

    Research limitations/implications – The study was limited by the number of participants with different cultural background in the immigrant samples. As such, it was unable to compare feeling of alienation between students with different cultural background.

    Originality/value – As the authors could not identify any studies that specifically address feelings of social alienation among adolescents in Sweden, thus this study is believed to be the first one in this context.

    Fear of Crime and Terrorism Among Israeli and Swedish Citizens2018In: Refugees and Migrants in Law and Policy: Challenges and Opportunities for Global Civic Education / [ed] Helmut Kury & Sławomir Redo, Springer, 2018, p. 577-595Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of the chapter is to broaden the understanding of the determinants of fear of crime and fear of terrorism while expanding the existing literature. Israel and Sweden provide case studies of two countries with a relatively similar population size, whereas their cultures are inherently different in their attitude toward terrorism and refugees. Several conclusions can be drawn from this study. The findings show higher rates of fear of crime and terrorism in the Israeli group than among the Swedes, despite the similar rates of actual exposure to crime. This finding could be explained by the Israeli society's higher exposure to terrorism. In addition, the comparison between the Israeli and Swedish samples may indicate the significance of cultural explanation in accounting for differences between the two groups, especially with regard to fear of being a victim of crime. It is suggested that the diverse perception of the government's responsibility for preventing the negative effects and of the "other" as a source of harm may account for the higher rates of fear of crime among Israelies explain this finding. © Springer International Publishing AG, part of Springer Nature 2018.

    Football as a tool for integration2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    As the number of refugees coming to Sweden increases the importance of integration becomes greater. As one of the most currently important political topics the integration debate is one that continues to grow. Sports have started to be started to be seen as a possible tool for integration. It offers a meeting place (Fundberg, 2004) where different cultures can meet and interact. However the effectiveness of sports as a tool in the integration process is still largely unknown. One of the most popular sports is football as it is a global game followed and played all around the world. As football is a team sport it makes all the players interact with each other. The objective of this study is to further understand how football affects integration. By interviewing refugee boys more information is gathered and this study can then add to the current debate. The interviewee’s answered questions to evaluate if social or cultural integration took place, as well as how football makes them feel to understand the importance football has for them. This study concludes that Football has been an important factor when it comes to learning the Swedish language. Football also plaid a big role in the social integration of these boys as it gave them friends and a sense of belonging. However cultural integration was limited. The results show clearly that football according to this study has been a useful tool for integration in certain areas. Further research could be made by interviewing more refugees and also by examining other sports to see what the results are there.
