    The Feeling of Migration: Narratives of Queer Intimacies and Partner Migration2016Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation analyzes narratives of queer partner migration, that is, a family-tie migration in which one of the partners of a relationship has migrated in order for the partners to be together, and where the partners queer the migration in the sense that they have a non-normative sexuality and/or gender identity. The purpose of the study is to examine how queer partner migrants and their Swedish partners experience the migration process – which continues also once the administrative process has been completed – by analyzing the emotions and feelings that emerge in the process. The study is a contribution to research on privileged migration as well as intimate migration.

    The focus is the queer partner migration relationship, and what emotions and feelings ‘do’ to this relationship, but also how emotions and feelings structure the migration process. The study analyzes the work three different emotions – love, loss, and belonging – do in these migration processes, and how this work is described in the participant narratives. Migrant participants have migrated from different parts of the world (Africa, Europe, Latin America, and North America), making it possible to analyze what emotions and feelings do in this particular migration process from the point of view of nationality and, in particular, proximity to ‘Western-ness,’ race, and language as well as how privileges connected to these positions come to matter in the process.

    The dissertation is an ethnographic interview study in which both migrants and Swedish partners have been interviewed. The interview material consists of a combination of couple interviews and individual interviews.

    By using affect theories and the concept of queer phenomenology, the dissertation shows how the work that emotions and feelings do in migration processes is connected to gender identity, sexual identity, race and whiteness, nationality, perceived proximity to Western-ness, class, language, and the migration narrative the migrating partner is (or is not) written into by way of the country they have migrated from. This is analyzed in relation to the theoretical frameworks of entanglement, homonationalism, and intimate citizenship.

    The analysis shows that emotions and feelings structure the migration process for both more privileged and less privileged migrants, but in different ways. The understanding of who ‘is’ a migrant, and the preparedness for the feelings that arise in a migration process, are tied to the positions mentioned above and the privileges these positions give, or do not give, the migrant access to. By focusing on emotions and feelings and what these do, the study also illustrates how the migration process affects the non-migrating partner as this partner engages in emotional labour to ‘make’ the migrating partner ‘Swedish.’ Through their the migrating partner, the non-migrating partner is also aligned in a way that makes them a little bit less ‘Swedish,’ contributing to the non-migrating partner being ‘stopped’ in ways they have usually not experienced before. The study further shows how migration processes produces inequality, and the difficulties that arise when the couples try to live up to the Swedish ideal of the equal relationship.

    The interviews are analyzed as narratives, and both narratives and storytelling are important throughout the dissertation, not only as the method used in the analysis but as the form of the dissertation, making it a kind of super structure organizing the writing. Writing (how to write accessibly and interesting) and reading (how to write in order to invite an open and active reading) are important aspects of the dissertation.

    Citizens at heart?: perspectives on integration of refugees in the EU after the Yugoslav wars of succession2016Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This edited volume is based on presentations made at the international conference “Citizens at Heart: Immigrant Integration in a European Perspective”, held at Uppsala University in March 2013. The book is a contribution to the growing literature investigating the aftermath of the violent dissolution of Yugoslavia and the processes of re-settlement and integration experienced by the refugees from Bosnia and Herzegvoina. In the midst of the present war in Syria and the heavy flows of refugees that are currently arriving in Europe, it is timely to revisit the integration experiences and transnational activities of the Bosnians who faced a similar fate some twenty years ago.

    Language, Culture and Maternity Care: "Troubling" Interpretation in an Institutional Context2015In: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, ISSN 1799-649X, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 5, no 2, 58-66 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyses language interpretation in the context of maternity health care. By scrutinising how maternity health care staff reflects upon their experiences from the everyday institutional setting, the article shows that they are caught between a discourse on language interpretation as migrants’ rights and a racialised discourse where language is intertwined with notions of ‘otherness’. As such, language interpretation becomes subsumed into a range of different practices that seek to discipline migrant women to meet the demands from Swedish society. In the article, therefore, the everyday practice by the health care staff is looked upon as a form of citizenship-making, and the article emphasises how racialised discourses take different shapes in different institutional contexts. Thus, the article shows that the practice of language interpretation cannot, in this context, be fully understood without including the larger socio-political context.

    Utbildning, arbete, medborgarskap: strategier för social inkludering i den mångetniska staden2016 (ed. 3)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Tillgång till utbildning är en förutsättning för jämlika levnadsvillkor och ett fullvärdigt medborgarskap. Men med en allt mer polari¬serad och etniskt skiktad arbetsmarknad är utbildning inte längre en tillräcklig förutsättning för social mobilitet, trots att samhället är mer beroende av kunskap och utbildning än någonsin.I denna bok beskrivs relationen mellan utbildning och möjligheten att uppnå de levnadsvillkor som det sociala medborgarskapet föreskriver. Vilka strategier utvecklar barn till invandrare för att övervinna hinder i samhället och erfarenheter av exkludering och stigmatisering? Framför allt fokuseras övergången mellan skola och arbete: Hur präglas utbildningsval och syn på arbete och karriär av sociala bakgrundsfaktorer som klass, kön och etnisk tillhörighet? Vilken betydelse har boendemiljön och den lokala skolan för valet av skola? Hur inverkar föräldragrupper, föreningar och andra sociala rörelser på övergången mellan skola och arbetsmarknad?

    Crisis of Solidarity?: Changing Welfare and Migration Regimes in Sweden2016In: Critical Sociology, ISSN 0896-9205, E-ISSN 1569-1632, 1-15 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Europe is in crisis. In recent years, there has been a rise of xenophobic parties in a number of European countries. While arguing that there is indeed a European crisis, this article focuses on the Swedish take on the crisis. The aim is to contribute to the understanding of migration, from a Swedish vantage point. This orientation has particular significance since Sweden has traditionally been extolled as defending human rights and multiculturalism by opening its doors to refugees – the so-called Swedish exceptionalism. Reality, however, is quite different and former policies are contested, raising the question whether this signals the end of this exceptionalism. In Sweden, ongoing processes are transforming the core social fabric of what was previously known as the Swedish model. It is potentially a bellwether for the transformation of a previously inclusive democratic society into something quite different, in which ‘the Other’ increasingly plays a defining role.

    Pensionärsplaneten: Spaniensvenskar och pensionsmigration i en globaliserad värld2016Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Svenskar som utvandrar till Spanien på ålderns höst är ett växande fenomen, men svenska Spanienpensionärer utmålas i medierna ofta som oförmögna att ”integrera sig” i det spanska samhället. Själva har Spanienpensionärerna tröttnat på myterna om att de är bortskämda golfare, skattesmitare eller salongsalkoholister som vägrar lära sig spanska och försöker återskapa ett ”Lilla Sverige” i Spanien. Hur ser pensionärernas liv ut i Spanien och hur ser villkoren ut för migranter och spanjorer som på olika sätt arbetar med dem? I Pensionärsplaneten möter vi ett brett spektrum av människoöden: folkpensionären, fattigpensionären, sjukpensionären och uteliggaren. Vi möter även människor (migranter och spanjorer) som på olika sätt arbetar med pensionsmigranter i Spanien. Utifrån dessa färgstarka berättelser och livsöden har Anna Gavanas, forskare i socialantropologi, skrivit en reportagebok som diskuterar teman kring internationalisering, global arbetsfördelning, arbetsvillkor och privatisering av äldreomsorg. Hon frågar sig hur villkoren för pensionsmigration kan jämföras med andra typer av migration. Hon väcker även en rad aktuella frågor om vilka migranter som anses mer önskvärda än andra, enligt vem och varför.

    Boken bygger på ett fyraårigt forskningsprojekt med stöd från Vetenskapsrådet och Forte.

    Swedish retirement migrants in Spain: mobility and eldercare in an aging Europe2016In: Family life in an age of migration and mobility: Global Perspectives through the Life Course / [ed] Majella Kilkey, Ewa Palenga-Möllenbeck, London: Palgrave Macmillan, 2016, 237-259 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the neoliberal era, privatization and internationalization are of crucial importance to conditions for eldercare in the European Union (EU),including Sweden, which has one of the highest rates of public provisionin Europe. Swedish retirees are part of a growing stream of older Northern Europeans who migrate to Southern Europe, especially to coastal areas in Spain. There are about 90,000 Swedish citizens living in Spain (Hedlund 2011). During the retirement life course phase, circumstances change, highlighting that retirement is dynamic rather than one distinctive phase. When Swedish retirees in Spain become increasingly in need of eldercare, they find themselves in a country with one of the lowest rates of public provision in Europe, and are left with a patchwork of private solutions. The pieces in the ‘elderly care puzzles’ (Szebehely 2004) that form the patchwork of care around older persons depend on the accessibility and affordability of a number of options: public/private provision, social/volunteer networks, family situation, as well as the preferences and conditions of different groups of older persons. Gender, health,socio-economic conditions, as well as Swedish and Spanish provision of health- and eldercare influence the mobility of international retirement migrants (IRMs), especially in the case of widows and single women with low income. This chapter discusses the conditions for mobility and independent aging in relation to a wide range of Swedish IRMs in Spain. We illuminate the mobility of IRMs as Europeans in the context of Freedom of Movement, and its limits. Below we outline the welfare and migration context of Swedish retirement migration to Spain. Subsequently, we analyze the economic, gendered and health factors that circumscribe themobility and immobility of different IRMs.

    Forskningssamverkan i politik och praktik: En översikt av initiativ och metoder för utvärdering av forskningskvalitet och genomslag2015Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här rapporten har utformats med utgångspunkt i LiUs arbete med att, utifrån ett organisatoriskt perspektiv, utveckla stöd för forskningssamverkansprocesser samt dokumentera forskningens samhälleliga genomslag. Syftet med rapporten är att ge en översiktlig omvärldsanalys för forskningssamverkan då detta aktualiserats såväl nationellt som internationellt. Förhoppningen är att denna rapport ska fungera som ett diskussionsunderlag för miljöernas forskare i syfte att bidra till utvecklingen av den egna verksamheten. Vår ambition är att sätta samverkan i ett historiskt perspektiv men också bygga vidare på den samverkanstradition som präglar LiU. Även om fokus för denna rapport är Linköpings universitet tror vi att de problem och utmaningar som LiU står inför gäller för fler lärosäten.

    Försvarad demokrati?: -En analys av diskurserna kring FRA-lagens legitimering.2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Försvarad demokrati är ett arbete som genom en diskursanalys tar sig en närmare titt på debatten år 2008 om en utökad FRA-lag med sikte på att kritiskt analysera hur partierna med hjälp utav olika diskurser behandlar och vrider begrepp för att få dem att överstämma med den egna idén om hur vi bör förhålla oss till hotet. Arbetet kommer också reflektera över hur vi i en allt mer flytande modern värld försöker gör det flytande och okända fast för att på så sätt få någon typ utav kontroll över det samhälle som vi skapat oss. Genom att belysa de politiska diskurserna kring hot och demokrati i debatten om en utökad FRA-lag bidrar arbetet till att skapa en förståelse kring hur människor i en demokrati med demokratiska ideal, så som integritet samt tryck- och yttrandefrihet, genom relationen till hot accepterar att bli systematiskt och storskaligt övervakade utav sin egen stat. Därav också övervakade av sin egen demokrati.

    Clashing internationalisms: east European narratives of west European integration2016In: Europe faces Europe: narratives from its eastern half / [ed] Johan Fornäs, Bristol: Intellect Ltd., 2016Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter analyzes how West European integration was viewed in communist Eastern Europe at the time of the foundation of the EU. Throughout the period from the Schuman declaration and the creation of the European Coal and Steel Community in 1951 to the Treaty of Rome and the establishment of the European Economic Community in 1957, Moscow, Berlin, Prague, Budapest, and Warsaw reacted, in part by criticizing the West European integration project as a continuation of Europe’s imperial and capitalist past, in part by projecting ideas for a wholly different European and global integration project. While this debate was patterned on the cold war logic and the clash between capitalist and communist ideologies, it also contained a profound – and lasting – dispute regarding Europe’s geopolitical position and role, especially in relation to its African colonies. After the fall of the communist East, this dispute was apparently settled to the West’s favor, and it was then forgotten. Yet, varieties of the same dispute today reappear as the EU seeks to develop a foreign policy and global mission for the twenty-first century. By using sources mainly from the Soviet Union and the German Democratic Republic that have so far been largely neglected in scholarship, the chapter evinces a East-European narrative about Europe’s calling and destiny that merits particular attention in today’s emerging pluricentric world order.

    Monstruösa historier: utkast till protestens poetik2016In: Historiens hemvist: Vol. 2: Etik, politik och historikerns ansvar / [ed] Patricia Lorenzoni, Ulla Manns, Stockholm: Makadam Förlag, 2016, 295-323 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay examines a central problem in historiography: how are radical social changes and political transformations represented in history? This problem concerns the figuration of agency and causality in historical explanations of revolutions and periods of sudden social disintegration and reintegration.

    A brief look at historiographies of modernity and modern society shows that ”the crowd” or ”the masses” – or, more generally, popular revolts and uprisings – are often introduced as explanations of such moments of transition. How do such explanations work, in which “the masses” are referred to as a historical causality and agent? To which extent can such explanations be seen as a general feature of histories of modern and contemporary history? These will be important questions in this essay.

    I draw examples and cases from 19th- and 20th-Century European historiography, historical sociology, history of literature and the arts.  In my earlier studies of the category of “the masses” in European political and cultural history, I have noted many such instances, from the French Revolution onward (Canetti offers a very interesting example, which I will perhaps focus on.) To make my discussion more relevant, I will also discuss reports and commentaries on the change and transformations that, allegedly, were generated by spontaneous collective movements in 2011–2013. What can a picture or an eyewitness account of the Tahrir Square in February 2011 tell us about historical causality?

    Underlying the notion of the crowd and the protesting collective as a historiographic motif in histories of modernity, there seems to be a certain understanding of collectivity as a trope or figure that, in a paradoxical sense, is introduced as a device for representing historical moments characterized by radical singularity – moments which are therefore ”unrepresentable” in an epistemological sense. Since masses and multitudes are plural agents marked by boundlessness and heterogeneity, they have apparently served historians well as explanations or causes of events that break existing political and social frames.

    The essay investigates whether this mode of explanation is empirical or figural, or both. Simply put, do crowds and collective revolts really explain historical transitions? Or do they serve mainly as tropes and substitutes, which impute some kind of causality and agency on events that are so complex that they surpass the explanatory power of historical categories or, indeed, of historiography as such?

    Where humanism finds its ends: Lessons from Pia Arke and Katarina Pirak Sikku on the difficulty of narrating the Arctic2016In: Studies in Travel Writing, ISSN 1364-5145, E-ISSN 1755-7550, Vol. 20, no 3, 1-11 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article argues that any attempt to conceive of a new narrative of the postcolonial Arctic will fail if it does not also entail a new narrative of European history. It begins by asserting the strong afterlife of colonial narratives of the Arctic through the example of the author’s own difficulty in writing an authentic, ethically acceptable report about East Greenland. By drawing on further examples, and by introducing narratological theory, the article moves on to consider the colonial narrative of the Arctic. It argues that the prototypical colonial narrative of the Arctic is modelled on Moby-Dick: a hunting and whaling story in which the setting is made up of landscape, wildlife and indigenous populations. The colonial narrative is gradually transformed as the indigenous peoples of the Arctic leave the setting and become agents in the narrative. Indeed, it is only when the indigene attains the place of the subject telling the story that we can seriously claim to have a postcolonial narrative of the Arctic. The article goes on to analyse two instances of such transformations of the colonial narrative: the works of the Danish-Greenlandic visual artist and researcher Pia Arke and the Sami visual artist Katarina Pirka Sikku. Both question the narrating subject in travel literature and scientific discourse about the Arctic, reclaiming that position for themselves.

    Austere histories in European societies: social exclusion and the contest of colonial memories2016Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Austere Histories in European Societies discusses how the current economic and political crisis in Europe affects not just our present but also our views and interpretations of the past. The contributions to the book examine a firmly defined problem: in which ways do crisis and decline in contemporary Europe trigger a selective forgetting and remodelling of the past? This problem is addressed through a set of questions, which the contributors to the collection address at various levels:

    • How do present policies of austerity and the ensuing social exclusion of migrants and minorities influence the perceptions and interpretations of the place of minorities, migrants and colonized peoples in European history?
    • How do new regimes of historiography and memory culture relate to emerging and established patterns of discrimination and social segmentation in today’s European societies?

     In seeking to answer these questions, the book makes a strong contribution to a European-wide discussion on the backlash against multiculturalism, diversity, and immigration, and on changing interpretations of the imperial and colonial systems that have shaped Europe’s position in the world.

    The point of departure for the collection is the recent turn of European societies toward more austere political regimes, entailing budget cuts, deregulation of labour markets, restrictions of welfare systems, securitization of borders, and new regimes of migration and citizenship. In the wake of such changes, new forms of social inclusion and exclusion appear that are justified through a reactivation of differences of race, class and gender. Against this backdrop, the book investigates contemporary understandings of history and cultural memory. Are we witnessing a turn toward austerity also in theories and practices of historiography, as well as in pedagogies of history? Can we speak of an austere historiography, an enforcement of conformity on Europe past and present?

    The contributions to the book examine, in both national and comparative perspective, how this development entails a privileging of certain narratives of the European past, whereas other parts of the cultural heritage are being weeded out. Strong interests are apparently at work to purge the histories of specific European nations, but also those of Europe, the West, and globalization from cultural plurality. The authors also discuss how heroic and homogeneous stories about the past of nations, regions, institutions and religions are being retold, reinvented, and re-launched. The book thus explores to what extent history (including public debate on history and history education) is again becoming “nationalistic”, and to what extent Europe’s proclaimed “cosmopolitanism” is being narrowed down so as to simply celebrate the achievements of Europe and posit the West as a model of universality to be emulated by others.

    Most chapters in the book focus on debates on history and colonial legacies in Britain, France, Netherlands, Denmark, Portugal, Sweden and Germany. They show how an increasing number of historians and intellectuals are again becoming blind to less gratifying parts of Europe’s history. While it is still too early to speak of a historical revisionism in the strict sense (for there are also strong counter-tendencies in parts of the academic community and postcolonial and migrant communities and organizations), the authors nonetheless argue that a transformation is under way, corresponding to a new politics of austerity that seems impatient with both democracy and the complexities of past. Among the sacrifices of this tendency are multiculturalism, postcolonial memories, and minority discourses of all kinds. What is lost is thus the very complexity and contradictoriness of Europe and the West. Especially, colonial and postcolonial memories are evicted from their recently claimed habitats in the European past, and again placed at the outskirts, far beyond the limit of the Western world. There is thus a strong correlation, which this collection aims to extract and analyze, between the ways in which migrant and migrant labourers are treated by present policies and the ways in which memories and experiences of migrants, minorities and colonized peoples are treated in historiography, historical pedagogy, and cultural heritage institutions.

    Introducing austere histories2016In: Austere histories in European societies: social exclusion and the contest of colonial memories / [ed] Stefan Jonsson, Julia Willén, London: Routledge, 2016, 1, 1-18 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this introductory chapter, we present the concept of ‘austere histories’ by situating it in the intersection of at least three contemporary issues, cultural contexts and academic discussions: first, discussions on Europe’s cultural memory and the precarious place of the colonial legacy in it; second, controversies on multiculturalism, racism, xenophobia and Europe’s migration crises; third and finally, the debate on austerity as policy and as ideology.

    We analyse how austerity turns economic concerns into moral and cultural ones and how it simultaneously remodels historical consciousness and conceptions of Europe’s colonial past. Examining how such processes in turn changes the relationships between classes, ethnic minorities, majorities and migrants, we seek to reveal how this affects the very definition and self-image of contemporary European Societies. Furthermore, we explore to what extent and in which ways present-day historical debate and practises of history writing support and legitimize the idea of ‘austerity’ and its social and political consequences, in the areas of citizenship, migration and social exclusion.

    The moral discourses of ‘post-crisis’ neoliberalism: a case study of Lithuania’s Labour Code reform2016In: Critical Discourse Studies, ISSN 1740-5904, E-ISSN 1740-5912, Vol. 14, no 2, 132-149 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article problematizes the neoliberal reconfiguration of labour rights in Lithuania, a newer European Union member state, in which the impacts of the global economic and financial crisis were particularly severe and where radical austerity measures were subsequently imposed. Now, after six years, in an attempt to resolve the exhaustion of previous austerity-based solutions for economic recovery, a new Labour Code is being introduced which will further weaken labour protections and labour rights. This article analyses conflicting positions in current debates over Labour Code reform. It attempts to map the mobilization of strategic discursive resources in an unfolding dialogical ‘moral’ politics of Labour Code reform in the current conjuncture of ‘postcrisis’. Theoretically, this article draws upon the seminal work of the early Soviet Marxist scholar V. N. Voloshinov in proposing a dialogical method which foregrounds the interconnections of language, class and ideology.

    Contesting urban management regimes: the rise of urban justice movements in Sweden2016In: Solidarity without borders: Gramscian perspectives on migration and civil society alliances / [ed] Óscar García Agustín, Martin Bak Jørgensen, Chicago: Pluto Press, 2016, , 186-203 p.186-202 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Addressing segregation, racism and welfare transformation, a new form of grassroots mobilization among young adults is emerging in the peripheries of Swedish cities. The common denominator is that they define themselves as urban justice movements – with place as the social ground for mobilization. With a Gramscian perspective, the article analysis the rise of urban justice movements in relation to contemporary urban policies in Sweden. We argue that Swedish urban policies during the last 20 years have created a hegemonic urban management regime underpinned by area based programs with a focus on network steering and new forms of partnership between civil society and public institutions. The emergence of urban justice movements is here understood in relation to firsthand negative experience of– and later active revulsion from – having participated in activities and issues related to the urban management regime. These experiences have been a key condition for the beginning of a broader struggle that merges local rootedness with wider structural-institutional conditionality.

    Abstract [en]

    ‘The migrant’ tends to be imagined as a non-privileged, non-white, non-western subject in search of a better future in Europe or the United States and as such is a pre-constituted subject shaped by notions of marginalization and poverty. What kinds of stories are obscured by this recurrent image of ‘the migrant’ and how do such categorizations hamper the analysis of privilege, belonging and white normativity within studies of migration? Why are some individuals not regarded as migrants despite their migrant status? Why are other individuals seen as migrants and thus denied their national belonging in spite of their formal status as national citizens? The article develops analytical tools on migration, belonging and citizenship, with particular attention to (a) autochthony and belonging, (b) race and citizenship and (c) white capital.

    White women. White nation. White cosmopolitanism.: Swedish return migration between the national and the global.2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Cosmopolitanism is intrinsically associated with the transgression of narrowing national boundaries, performing the function of a ‘globalization from within’. This paper emerges from the concept of white cosmopolitanism, providing a critique of the inherent racial aspects of cosmopolitanism and the ‘cosmopolitan class’, based on the argument that the very language of cosmopolitanism is structured by whiteness and class, granting uninterrupted mobility and a sense of becoming ‘worldly’. The concept captures Swedish white upper-middle-class returning migrant women’s’ sense of being ‘citizens of the world’ including ideas of certain ethics such as ‘tolerance’ and a cultured approach to ‘otherness’. The paper analyses how national boundaries are confined, yet transgressed in the narratives of the ‘Swedish world citizen’. Such process reflects how the reproduction of Swedish nationality acts upon the women’s bodies as representatives of the nation abroad and simultaneously re-inscribing the (white) nation into the global.

    “We are the world”: Swedish migrant women and white cosmopolitanism2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Race and whiteness fundamentally structures mobility and migration by the means of border controls and visa policies or by the lack thereof. These principles in contemporary globalization make up the foundation for our different approaches to the world around us. This paper emerges from the concept of white cosmopolitanism to capture the interrelation between white upper-middle-class migrant women’s sense of being ‘citizens of the world’ and the production of Swedish national modernity. Empirically, the paper is based on nearly ten years of ethnographic work including in-depth interviews with Swedish women living abroad and returning migrants to Sweden. For the women abroad, it is of utmost importance to preserve their Swedish national identity yet transcending the national to become ‘citizens of the world’. For returning Swedes, the undertaking is to bring this world back ‘home’ to Sweden. This process reflects how the reproduction of Swedish modernity acts upon the women’s bodies as representatives of the Swedish nation abroad simultaneously re-inscribing the nation into the global. It is here argued that the very language of cosmopolitanism is structured by whiteness, white capital and class, which grant uninterrupted mobility and the authority to bring pieces and parts of the world ‘back’ into the national. Such expressions and subject positions of white upper-middle-class women are further re-constructed through other women’s work as they care for the domestic and the family while the white women acquire cosmopolitan capital by traveling around the world. Apart from obscuring global inequalities, white cosmopolitanism is here seen as imbricated in national politics. As Sweden searches for a post-Social Democrat identity domestically and globally, white cosmopolitan femininity may well be the place where global intimacies reconnect with a renewed white nationalism that re-inscribes Sweden into the contemporary neoliberal global soul, even with closed borders.

    Abstract [en]

    This chapter explores the capacity of two Swedish trade union initiatives, SAC Syndicalists and LO-TCO centre, to extend solidarity to undocumented migrant workers. The author asks what solidarity linkages have been established since the shift of millennia and what obstacles encountered in forging solidarity between workers with strong versus weak legal status. He illuminates the emergence of a transformative form of solidarity, which may open for protection of new groups of disadvantaged workers.

    Abstract [en]

    he article has two aims. The first is to illuminate the contributions of antiracist scholarship and feminist studies to an understanding of the upsurge of extreme-right-wing cultural racist parties throughout Europe. The second is to explore how women active in the Sweden Democrats (SD), a Swedish version of these parties, name and act upon their identities as members of what many citizens and a growing number of scholars define as a racist party. We argue that the SD, despite its efforts to include women in the party, is confronted by two contending nationalist narratives: on the one hand that of a gender-equal Sweden and on the other the need for traditional gender roles to be treated as vital for the maintenance of the nation.

    ”Det fackliga löftet”: solidaritet, fackföreningsrörelse och arbetskraftsinvandring2015In: Arbetskraft från hela världen: Hur blev det med 2008 års reform? / [ed] Catharina Calleman, Petra Herzfeld Olsson, Stockholm: Delmi , 2015, 200-243 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I det här kapitlet diskuterar jag arbetskraftsmigration i Sverige och fackföreningsrörelsens syn på invandrad arbetskraft. Jag fokuserar dels på 2008 års arbetskraftsinvandringsreform i ett Sverige där gränserna mellan olika migrationsformer håller på att suddas ut, dels på Landsorganisationens (LO) och LO-förbundens syn på frågan. Migrationen måste ses som en aspekt av den pågående globaliseringen, med förändrade former för produktionens och arbetets organisering, samt med ökad rörlighet för kapital och arbete. Vidare hämtar jag inspiration från teorier om arbetskraftsmigration och teorier om facklig organisering. Informalisering, rasifiering, ofritt arbete och föreställd solidaritet är centrala begrepp i mitt resonemang. Jag vill förstå kopplingen mellan å ena sidan fackets varierande förhållningssätt till arbetskraftsmigration och därmed hur man uttrycker solidaritet, och å andra sidan förändrade styrkeförhållanden mellan kapital och arbete samt fackföreningsrörelsens syn på den ekonomiska utvecklingen och på sin egen roll.

    Abstract [en]

    This study explored the perspectives of Black men, originally from East Africa, living in the United Kingdom and their partners on what it means to live with diagnosed HIV. This article reports on concealment of HIV-positive status as a strategy adopted by the affected participants to manage the flow of information about their HIV-positive status. Analysis of the data, collected using in-depth interviews involving 23 participants, found widespread selective concealment of HIV-positive status. However, a few respondents had come out publicly about their condition. HIV prevention initiatives should recognise concealment as a vital strategy in managing communication about ones HIV-positive status.

    Lärosätenas organisering av samverkan och modeller för resursfördelning2015Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Projektet har syftat till att kartlägga modeller för hur lärosäten premierar strategisk samverkan i sin interna resursfördelning mellan lärosätesledningen och fakulteter/verksamhetsområden och i nästa led till institutioner eller andra aktiviteter. Som bakgrund till våra analyser har vi kartlagt hur lärosätena organiserar sitt arbete med extern samverkan såväl ledningsmässigt, akademiskt som administrativt. I projektet har även analyserats principer för resursfördelning och metoder för att samla in nödvändig information. En central frågeställning har varit i vad mån förutsättningar inom olika discipliner och utbildningsinriktningar kan jämföras. Ett av resultaten visar att lärosätenas modeller för resursfördelning samtidigt är både jämförbara och unika. Det förekommer sällan tydligt riktade satsningar på samverkan. Genomgången visar samtidigt att aktörer på olika nivåer inom universiteten visar stor skicklighet och uppfinnings ‐ rikedom när det gäller att indirekt påverka den interna fördelningen av fakultetsmedel för såväl utbildning som forskning och forskarutbildning. Ett betydande gemensamt lärande kan åstadkommas genom fortsatt samarbete mellan universitetsledningar och förvaltningar men även mellan fakulteter och institutioner vid respektive lärosäte.

    Minding the gap: the role of UK civil society in the European refugee crisis2016Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The recent collapse of the Dublin system, a system meant to distribute responsibility towards asylum-seekers and refugees between EU Member States (MSs), has marked a new phase of the so-called European Refugee “Crisis”, where the inability of EU MS governments to address the situation in a unified and coherent manner ultimately harms those most in need of protection. Public discontent with EU and MS government responses to the crisis has led to strong citizen mobilisation in the form of civil society. This study focuses on the case of the UK and examines the role played by policy advocacy Civil Society Organisations (CSOs). The concept of Political Responsibility is used to establish the emergence of a Governance Gap in the UK’s response to the crisis, where the government finds itself unable to bridge a growing distance between its representation and responsible governance functions. Policy advocacy CSOs are found to be now minding this gap. Critical Discourse Analysis is used to study how CSOs react to the UK government’s response in terms of practice and discourse, and to highlight the consequences which language use can have on how we perceive and treat refugees and asylum-seekers in this context.

    Analysing the formation of a political subjectivity among swedish urban justice activists the authors discuss resistance against cultural stigmatization and social exclusion. An emergent critical public voice confronts marginalization within the formalised context of "invited spaces" for citizenship dialogues as activists create new "invented spaces" for public participation, in order to promote democratic development.

    Immigration policy regimes, welfare states and urban inequality patterns: A comparison between Malmo and Genoa2016In: European Urban and Regional Studies, ISSN 0969-7764, E-ISSN 1461-7145, Vol. 23, no 4, 862-877 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is a general consensus that welfare states influence urban inequality patterns in cities experiencing increases in immigration. Whereas much of the existing research focused on the extent to which welfare states affect the well-being of immigrants after their admission, this study focuses on how immigration policy regimes affect the extent to which immigrant flows, and subsequent labour supply, match variations and fluctuations in the composition of demand in urban labour markets. In particular, the article develops a comparison between Malmo and Genoa, an Italian and a Swedish city with similar urban histories that display considerably different patterns of urban inequality. Immigration to Malmo was fuelled largely by humanitarian emergencies in the countries of origin and occurred in a period of economic decline for the city. The growth of the immigrant population was associated with a worsening of the labour market situation for immigrants and an increase in ethnic residential segregation. Immigration to Genoa was mainly driven by demand for cheap labour, particularly in the private-care sector. Therefore, the growth of the immigrant population was associated with an ethnic segmentation of the labour market, but it also resulted in a more dispersed distribution of immigrants than in Malmo. The differences in the urban inequality patterns in Malmo and Genoa can be only partly explained by policies affecting the living conditions of admitted immigrants. An important role has also been played by the immigration policy regimes of the two countries, which prescribed the integration potential of immigrant flows.

    An Introduction to the Special Issue. Politics of Precarity: Migrant Conditions, Struggles and Experiences2016In: Critical Sociology, ISSN 0896-9205, E-ISSN 1569-1632, Vol. 42, no 7-8, 947-958 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The current special issue examines the range and strength of analysing contemporary transformations and struggles through the lens of ‘precarity’. Rather than defining a single precariat, the interest is in exploring ‘varieties of precarity’. These take different forms in different parts of the world, on different scales and in different socio-economic contexts, and yet they share certain characteristics in terms of conditions and capacity for agency. Contributions to this volume testify that precarity may be a political proposition as much as a sociological category that offers an analytical description of current transformations. The selection of articles has the ‘politics of precarity’ as a frame of reference. It describes the political economy of neoliberal globalization producing institutionally embedded precarization of labour, livelihoods and citizenship, but also resistance against the systemic structuration within which it is embedded.
