Abstract [en]

The World Value survey has developed a map that illustrates differences in citizens' values across the globe. The survey shows that developed countries have more secular values, while citizens in less developed countries have more traditional values (Ingelhart, 2015). Through two focus group interviews, this study seeks a deeper understanding of how individuals of different ethnic backgrounds experience romantic relationships, as well as differences and similarities in their reasoning on relationships. One focus group consisted of individuals from an ethnic Swedish background and the other focus group consisted of individuals of other ethnic backgrounds, which included Somali, Kurdish and Bosnian. According to The World Value Survey, individuals from these ethnic backgrounds should be expected to hold more traditional values, while Sweden is regarded as the most secular society in the world. The results of this study show that there are both differences and similarities in how individuals from different ethnic backgrounds reason about romantic relationships. The results show that interviewees of other ethnicities than Swedish seem to have been influenced by the secular values of Swedish society, while remaining largely characterized by the traditional values that are common in the countries they or their parents descend from. The participants of ethnic Swedish background seemed to have fully embodied the prevailing secular values of Sweden, based on their discussions about romantic relationships.
