Abstract [en]

This article examines attitudes toward returning to Iran among Iranian refugees in Sweden. Differences between Iranians are traced to various factors including economic position and political involvement The idea of a home and a homeland, as well as that of a home culture, are critically examined in the light of the creation of a diaspora culture in Sweden and elsewhere that seeks to reconstruct aspects of Iranian culture. It is argued that not only the ‘when’ of return migration must be examined, but also the ‘where’, in a situation of dynamic cultural change which redefines the meaning of the home culture and the location of home itself
