    Language learners and learning language in the era of reinforced boundaries: challenging webs-of-understandings related to bilingualism ethnographically2015In: -isms of Oppression in Language Education: / [ed] Damian J Rivers and Karin Zotzmann, Berlin: Mouton de Gruyter, 2015Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This empirically driven multidisciplinary study takes a socioculturally oriented decolonial perspective on language, identity and learning. It is framed in the intersections of Communication Studies, Literacy Studies and Educational Sciences traditions on the one hand, and the identity research domains of Deaf Studies and Gender Studies on the other. An overarching aim is to present explorations of bi/multilingualism from bi/multilingual multimodal perspectives. Focusing the ways in which individuals’ language, in public spaces, schools or work spaces, makes visible the performative work that participants (and institutions) “do” with semiotic resources. Language is empirically accounted for not as the sole property of an individual, community or geopolitical state, but rather as an intrinsic performatory dimension of both interlinked language varieties and modalities and humans in concert with tools in face-to-face, textually and digitally mediated spaces. Focusing social practices – what gets communicated and the ways in which the same occurs – allows for problematizing dominant hegemonic epistemologies related to language, identity and learning. Alternative decolonial vantage positions together with multisite, multi-scale data (like diaries, field-notes, video-data, narrative biographies, language curricula and archive data across time) from ethnographic projects at the Communication, Culture and Diversity, CCD research group at Örebro University, Sweden have enabled center staging “isms” that currently collate towards reinforcing oppressive boundaries and producing newer web-of-understandings in the Language and Educational Sciences. Together with an oral language bias in academic reporting these webs-of-understandings reinforce dominant monolingual-monomodality positions in addition to monological essentialistic colonial perspectives on language, identity and learning. The analysis highlights that ways of conceptualizing, reporting and “talking about bi/multilingualism” are not in sync with mundane languaging or ways-of-being-with-words, or peoples engagement in everyday “bi/multilingual communication” inside and outside institutional settings. The findings have major relevance for reframing both educational as well as societal agendas in the global North, but also South.

    Why Do Immigrant and Swedish Adolescents Engage in Ethnic Victimization? Common and Distinct Underlying Factors2021In: Journal of Youth and Adolescence, ISSN 0047-2891, E-ISSN 1573-6601, Vol. 50, no 11, p. 2236-2248Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Youth of immigrant background are at risk of experiencing victimization due to their ethnic or cultural background. However, limited knowledge is available regarding why youth victimize their immigrant peers, and whether the factors associated with engagement in ethnic victimization vary across adolescents of different background. To address this gap in knowledge, the present study aimed to elucidate the common or differential factors associated with engagement in ethnic victimization among immigrant and native youth. The analytical sample included seventh grade students residing in Sweden from 55 classrooms (N = 963, Mage = 13.11, SD = 0.41; 46% girls; 38% youth of immigrant background). The results showed that being morally disengaged and engaging in general victimization are the common denominators of engagement in ethnic victimization for immigrant and Swedish youth. Low levels of positive attitudes toward immigrants provide a foundation for ethnic victimization among Swedish youth, but not youth of immigrant background. Classroom ethnic composition was not significantly related to engagement in ethnic victimization in either group. Predictors of engagement in ethnic victimization seem to have similarities and differences among immigrant and Swedish youth. The factors involved require further attention in developing strategies to combat bias-based hostile behaviors in diverse school settings.

    Ethnic Harassment and Immigrant Youth's Engagement in Violent Behaviors: Understanding the Risk Factors2019In: Child Development, ISSN 0009-3920, E-ISSN 1467-8624, Vol. 90, no 3, p. 808-824Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The present study aimed to examine whether ethnic harassment was related to violent behaviors among immigrant youth over time and to identify the risk factors. The sample comprised immigrant adolescents living in Sweden (N = 365; Mage  = 13.93, SD = 0.80). Results showed that the more youth were ethnically harassed, the more they engaged in violent acts over time. A separated identity significantly moderated the effect of ethnic harassment on youth's engagement in violent behaviors. Specifically, ethnic harassment positively predicted engagement in violent behaviors only at high levels of separated identity. Impulsivity and school ethnic composition did not act as moderators. The findings suggest that preventing violent behaviors among immigrant youth requires a focus on promoting positive interethnic relationships, and multicultural identity among immigrant youth.

    Immigration and crime in Sweden2015In: Routledge handbook on crime and international migration / [ed] Sharon Pickering; Julie Ham, Routledge , 2015, p. 41-54Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter discusses immigration and criminality in Sweden. It presents a broad overview of immigration, immigrants and crime in Europe in general, which serves as an important point of departure for comparing and contrasting the Swedish context. The chapter covers the history of immigration to Sweden along with Sweden’s development of immigration and integration policy, and discusses Sweden’s immigration and integration policy. It provides context on studies of immigrant crime in Sweden. The section that follows provides an overview on immigrant criminality in Sweden based on research that has been done since the 1970s. Finally, the chapter summarizes and offer conclusions on the outlook of immigrant criminality in Sweden. Overall, the research indicates that over-representation in recorded crime has remained stable over time, even if immigration to Sweden has changed in character. The immigrant criminality in Sweden appears to depend mostly on Sweden’s reaction to and reception of immigrants.

    Välfärdspolitik i praktiken: om perspektiv och metoder i forskning2007Collection (editor) (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Förändringar av människors villkor i samhället kräver nya sätt att forska. I den här antologin presenteras olika redskap för kvalitativ forskning om välfärd. I antologin utgår forskarna från redan välkända traditioner inom samhällsvetenskaplig forskning, men argumenterar inte bara för etablerade forskningsmetoder och teoretiska perspektiv inom välfärdsforskningen utan också för nya. Antologin har arbetats fram inom ramen för Nordiska Sommaruniversitetet och därmed influerats av olika forskningstraditioner som förekommer vid universitet och högskolor i Norden.

    Nya forskningsmetoder där människornas egna utsagor och upplevelser tillvaratas kan tolkas utifrån redan etablerade teoretiska perspektiv som fenomenologi, hermeneutik och interaktionism. De forskningsansatser som presenteras möjliggör att människor även själva är med och formulerar bilden av sina livsvillkor. I antologin visas hur forskning med dessa ansatser kan ske tillsammans med människor i olika åldrar och livssituationer. I antologin visas också att komparativa ansatser kan öppna för nya insikter om olika dimensioner i välfärdsystemet som en kulturell praktik.

    Abstract [sv]

    Artikeln tematiserar nationell minneskultur som ett kollektivt fenomen som baserar på individuell erfarenhet. Texten analyserar polskt nationellt krigsminne och utgår ifrån skriftligt material i form av protokoll vilka samlades in av en forskningsgrupp i Lund 1945 (Polski Instytut Zrodlowy). Forskningsgruppen samarbetade med Sture Bolin, professor i historia vid Lunds universitet strax efter andra världskriget. Jag diskuterar skillnader mellan polskt och polskt judiskt krigsminne som utmanar den nationella karaktären av minneshistoria. Bidraget granskar även omständigheter vid protokollens insamling och samarbetet mellan Bolin och Zygmunt Lakocinski, en polsk intellektuell som hjälpte polska överlevande i Sverige 1945-1946.

    Die "Weißen Busse" und Folke Bernadotte: Zur Rezeption der Hilfsaktion in Deutschland und Skandinavien2008In: KZ und Nachwelt: Dachauer Hefte. Studien und Dokumente zur Geschichte der nationalsozialistischen Konzentrationslage / [ed] Wolfgang Benz & Barbara Distel, Dachau: Dachau Selbstverlag , 2008, p. 203-220Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Med tanke på den "europeiska minneskulturen" undersöker artikeln huruvida enskilda nationella diskurser om en historisk händelse kan sammanfogas. Analysen av uppslagsverkstexter om "de vita bussarna" visar att det finns en tendens inom den historiska kunskapsproduktionen för att skapa ett homogent, gemensamt skandinaviskt minne. Debatten i den norska pressen samt i svenska och danska publikationer är ett talande exempel för hur skillnader i de enskilda länderna framträder inom den skandinaviska kontexten och hur de formar representationer av historiska händelser i respektive nationella sammanhang. Tidsvittnens röster som bidrar till den livliga debatten i norsk press är ett bra exempel på en utmaning som skapades i mötet med den kritiska forskningens bidrag i ämnet. Debatten visar att det finns ett starkt motstånd att ifrågasätta redan etablerade och positivt laddade tolkningar av händelserna. Artikeln visar hur särskilda nationella berättelser av räddningsaktionen "de vita bussarna" och välkända personligheter som Folke Bernadotte har placerats i offentlig diskurs, i historieskrivning och uppslagsverk som "allmänt känt" och hur de är konstruerade i en viss form. De etablerades och accepterades av allmänheten. Samtidigt publiceras kritiska berättelser om aktionen men de hittar inte sin plats i det kollektiva minnet, med andra ord kommer de att "glömmas".

    Abstract [de]

    Nach der Machtübernahme der Nationalsozialisten brach im Deutschen Reich Terror gegen Juden und Andersdenkende los. Die sich schrittweise, aber rasant verschlechternden Lebensverhältnisse und die zunehmende Verfolgung zwangen Tausende Menschen zur Flucht. Außerhalb von Hitlers Macht- und Einflussbereich mussten sie den Versuch wagen, sich eine neue Existenz aufzubauen. Verglichen mit ihren europäischen Nachbarländern nahmen die skandinavischen Länder nur wenige Flüchtlinge auf. Dennoch wurden sie, insbesondere das neutrale Schweden, aufgrund der politischen Entwicklung in Europa zu wichtigen Zentren des Exils. In der Folge leisteten die Emigranten bedeutende Beiträge zu Kunst, Kultur, Wissenschaft und Politik der Aufnahmeländer. Der vorliegende Band widmet sich einem bislang nur wenig erforschten Kapitel der Geschichtsschreibung: dem jüdischen intellektuellen Exil in Skandinavien.

    Oral history, constructions and deconstructions of narratives: Intersections of class, gender, locality, nation and religion in narratives from a Jewish woman in Sweden2009In: ENQUIRE, Vol. 2, no 1, p. 1-24Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article we elaborate on the possibility to combine a social constructivist perspective and oral history within one methodological framework in order to explore how identities are narrated and negotiated in relation to different situations, contexts and interviewers. In oral history, the purpose is often to “give voice” to marginalized or forgotten individuals or groups, to listen to their stories and give them the possibility to speak from their perspectives. We agree with these emancipatory aims of oral history. Simultaneously we deconstruct and analyze interviews in order to investigate identity constructions. We work with the concepts of intersectionality and narrated identity, which allow us to investigate how groups and individuals that are marginalized and discriminated negotiate their own and other identities. At the same time it is unclear if our interviewees understand these kinds of analysis of their narratives. In order to combine a social constructivist perspective and oral history in a fruitful way, we must be aware of this relation of power and explain to the interviewees what we are doing and why we are doing it. In a broader research perspective this deconstructive approach illustrates interesting assumptions about multidimensional identity constructions.

    Challenges in the Guardianship of Unaccompanied Minors Seeking Asylum2018In: The International Journal of Children's Rights, ISSN 0927-5568, E-ISSN 1571-8182, Vol. 26, no 3, p. 489-509Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we explore the research literature relating to the guardianship of unaccompanied minors seeking asylum. In particular, we seek to find out what type of dilemmas have been identified by research concerning the guardianship of unaccompanied minors, and the focus that the literature has therefore taken. A comprehensive search of identified databases was conducted. Ultimately, 38 publications were selected for analysis. The review was qualitative and inductive. The results of the review suggest that research has identified and focused on challenges in the form of diverging policy such as gaps and inconsistencies in guardianship institutions, as well as challenges in balancing different objectives concerning the guardianship role, such as conflicting interest in the guardianship assignment or between different actors involved in protecting the child's interest.

    The conclusion is that different configurations of guardianship institutions, as well as the identified challenges for practice, appear to be related to the welfare state model. Therefore, future research concerning guardianship for unaccompanied minors needs to move beyond legal sources and policy documents by focusing on empirically informed research on the relationship between child care/protection, principles of assessing the best interest of the child and the welfare state systems.

    Migrant Inclusion In The Global North and South: Strategies for Sustainable Futures2022In: XII. INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON SOCIAL RESEARCH AND BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES, November 12-13, 2022, Antalya / TURKEY: Proceeding Book / [ed] Yagut Alieva; Kiyal Kamchybekova Abdiraim, SADAB , 2022, p. 13-24Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This descriptive paper is based on a desk review to unpack the opportunities and challenges that migrants face in constructing and maintaining meaningful lives in their transition and destination countries. The paper explores factors that affect inclusion and draws insights on the general and targeted support for migrants in their new environment. The findings show that migrants face challenges of being perceived deficient by most stakeholders in migration. Most strategies for inclusion do not factor migrants’ involvement and are often designed from the lens of the host governments and the organizations working with migrants. There is more focus on migrants’ experience in the destination countries than their experience during transition. It also emerged that migrants’ individual characteristics interact with factors in their new environment to affect inclusion. To achieve sustainable futures, the paper recommends interventions that focus on engagement of migrants as resourceful persons in development and enhance their opportunities for inclusion during transition and in the destination countries.

    Migrants' Attitudes to and Use of Digital Technologies: Does Context Matter?2022In: XII. INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON SOCIAL RESEARCH AND BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES, November 12-13, 2022, Antalya / TURKEY: Proceeding Book / [ed] Yagut Alieva; Kiyal Kamchybekova Abdiraim, SADAB , 2022, p. 46-54Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores the use of digital multiliteracies by migrants with varied literacy skills in Kenya and in Sweden. The research questions are: What digital multiliteracy resources are used by migrants in Kenya and in Sweden in different contexts, and what are the attitudes to these resources? The material consists of semi-structured interviews of 9 informants in Sweden and 8 in Kenya. The interviews have been analyzed by using qualitative content analysis. The findings show that many of the digital resources used in the two countries are similar. However, migrants in Kenya employ more digital resources in education and use of some functions are more common in Kenya. Factors relating to physical location, digital infrastructure, digital skills, and information safety emerged as possible explanations for migrants’ attitudes and use of digital technologies. Migrants, especially in Kenya show a broad knowledge of digital multiliteracy. Even migrants with short education use a variety of. digital resources. Based on the findings, the study concludes that digital resources are instruments of migration, integration, and tools for meeting life needs in particular contexts.

    The Salience of Digital Literacy in Agentic Integration of Migrants in Refugee Camps in Kenya2022In: XII. INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON SOCIAL RESEARCH AND BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES, November 12-13, 2022, Antalya / TURKEY: Proceeding Book / [ed] Yagut Alieva; Kiyal Kamchybekova Abdiraim, SADAB , 2022, p. 25-37Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores refugees’ sense of agency on integration through digital literacy and the use of digital technologies in Kakuma refugee camp. The qualitative method involved content analysis of semi-structured interviews conducted with 8 purposively sampled participants who reside in the camp. The analyses focused on the resources provided by mobile phone, computer and reading tablet and the life goals enabled by the technologies that enhance refugees’ sense of agency in integration. The findings show that most participants use mobile phone more often than computer and reading tablet. From the analyses, three life goals emerged; social relationship, effective task performance and recreation. The paper concludes that digital literacy and the enabled life goals provide opportunities for refugees to experience a sense of agency, belonging and wellbeing. Based on the findings, the paper recommends vocational training for refugees on the use of digital technologies to support integration with the global community and to help them achieve their life goals.

    Asylum-seeking refugees and the sense of (in)security in Sweden

    Against a political backdrop where ‘security’ is increasingly associated with crime prevention rather than social security and welfare – and where refugees have come to be seen more as a threat to security than in need of security – this article examines asylum seeking refugees’ sense of security in Sweden. The article is based on an interview study with Syrian asylum-seeking refugees who arrived in Sweden during the ‘refugee crisis’ that culminated in 2015. The refugees’ stories often portrayed Sweden as a safe country, but their own lives were marked by insecurity in relation to — in particular — the asylum process, their economic and housing situation, and their social relations. The article also describes policy changes made before and after the interview study was conducted. These changes are expected to reduce asylum migration, which in turn is expected to reduce crime-related insecurity. At the same time, they lead to increased insecurity for asylum seekers and refugees. The article concludes by questioning whether in-creasing the insecurity of an already vulnerable group can really make a society more secure.

    Ethnic hierarchies, ethnic prejudice, and social dominance orientation2005In: Journal of Community and Applied Social Phychology, ISSN 1052-9284, E-ISSN 1099-1298, Vol. 15, no 2, p. 83-94Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous research in multi-ethnic societies has shown that people rank, or form hierarchies of, the ethnic groups on the basis of social distance. Based on self-report data from a community sample (N = 150 non-psychology students), this study examined (1) the correspondence of ratings and rankings of six ethnic target groups among various subgroups of participants (Swedish and immigrant men and women), and (2) the relationship of inclination to ethnic ranking with ethnic prejudice and social dominance orientation. In accord with our hypotheses, the results disclosed that (1) irrespective of gender and ethnic origin, the various subgroups of participants ranked and formed similar hierarchies of the six ethnic target groups, and (2) people's inclination to ethnic ranking showed significant correlations with their ethnic prejudice as well as social dominance orientation

    Accumulation of welfare problems among immigrants in Norway2018Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This report analyses a large-scale survey of living conditions among immigrants in Norway. Data were collected by Statistics Norway in 2016 and covered 12 of the largest immigrant groups in Norway. This aim of the present report is analyse the kinds of welfare problems experienced by immigrants. Which immigrants accumulate most welfare problems? What are the main predictors of welfare problems among immigrants in Norway? How does the accumulation of welfare problems relate to general life satisfaction among immigrants? In addition, we compare the accumulation of welfare problems among immigrants with the total population.

    An early draft of this report was presented at the International Forum on Migration Statistics 2018, in Paris in January. A more recent draft was presented internally at a seminar for migration researchers at Oslo Metropolitan University. We would like to thank participants at both events for constructive and valuable feedback. This project was commissioned and financed by the Directorate of Integration and Diversity (IMDi). We would like to thank IMDi for making possible this interesting and challenging project, and especially Anja Wedde Sveen and Eivind Hageberg, both at IMDi, for cooperation underway. Project leader has been Kristian Rose Tronstad of the Norwegian Institute for Urban and Regional Research, NIBR. Tronstad has conducted the statistical analyses and written most of the report. Marit Nygaard at NIBR has contributed on analysis and discussion of the results. Miia Bask at Norwegian Social Research, NOVA, has written about the theory of accumulation of welfare problems in Chapter 3.

    Making Sense of Belonging: Translocal Subjectivity and Rootedness of Turkish-Born Women in Sweden2023In: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 13, no 2, article id 6Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article elaborates on how sense of belonging is constructed over the life course of individuals by mapping out the affective and material dimensions of belonging in a translocal context. Specifically, it focuses on Turkish-born women who migrated to Sweden in their early to mid-adulthood and have lived in Sweden for 40 years on average. It asks how they make sense of their belonging as they age in Sweden and aims to shed light on the complex and fluid nature of translocal subjectivities. The empirical material consists of 20 in-depth semi-structured interviews with women aged 60 to 78. The analysis shows that belonging is informed by interconnected affective and material dimensions as individuals change and re-negotiate their situated life stories. The article concludes that belonging is temporally located over the life course and is constructed on a translocal scale which transcends national borders.
