Abstract [en]

This study concerns the creation of identity and experiences of belonging to two cultures, among second generation immigrants. Based on semi-structured interviews with four young second generation immigrants, the purpose was to explore their views on their identity and experiences of living in two different worlds. The study has also a purpose to understand whether these youths perceive differences between themselves and ethnic Swedes and when they believe that others may consider them as Swedes. The essay studied how the youth’s parents and their upbringing have affected their view on their culture and the integration with the Swedish society. The results demonstrate that the youth’s parents are the main reason they now feel pride in their origins and their culture. They can now understand the benefit of being bilingual. The reason why these youths are experiencing a mean of identity at this point of their lives is according to them, the fact that society has made a distinction between people from different cultures.
