Abstract [en]

What is it that makes us feel at home in a place? How do we perceive the experience of moving to an unfamiliar country with the knowledge that we might just stay one or two years? In this thesis, made in collaboration with Sektionen för byggnadsplanering at Stockholm University, these questions are examined by investigating the behavior and thought patterns of guest scientists that have recently started working in Stockholm. During the thesis you get to know the tactics and thought patterns of five guest scientists currently living in Stockholm in relation to three major themes. The themes are “getting to know the city”, “visiting” and “the position in the city”. Under these general themes we get to understand how the guest scientists use different tactics to navigate moving to Stockholm. We also get to understand how they by moving to a place where they have no plans to be joined into a Gemeinschaft can get a bigger drive to work harder on their careers.
