Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine how EU-migrants visiting the social project Crossroads experience their life situation in the Swedish society. Two questions were formulated: (1) How do the respondents describe their situation when it comes to work, housing and social network? (2) How do the interviewees describe and experience the social project Crossroads? The method used was qualitative interviews conducted with five EU-migrants who visited Crossroads. The theoretical framework is the concept of integration and Bauböcks (1996) theoretical model of the ideal society. The results show that none of the interviewees had their own accommodation. Most of theme were living under stress because of their job seeking situation. The results also show that the interviewees’ social networks consisted of small groups of individuals who speak the same language.  According to the interviewees. The results show that Crossroads provides a welcome but acute help to relive problems with everyday life. The interviewees perceived their situation as complex and frustrating, and it appeared as if their situation as regards work, accommodation, and social contacts was interrelated.  It is concluded that EU-migrants would benefit from structural changes that made it easier for theme to improve their life situation more lastingly.
