    Ethnicity and Social Divisions: Contemporary Research in Sociology2008Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The anthology "Ethnicity and Social Divisions: Contemporary Research in Sociology" is a collection of studies presented at the annual Aage Sorensen Memorial Conferences in 2006 and 2007. The volume reflects a number of important tendencies in contemporary social research: the increasing interest in questions that concern ethnicity and immigration on the one hand, the remaining centrality of social stratification and class analysis on the other hand, and the intersection between these fields. Eight young sociologists, all PhD Candidates at the universities of Harvard, Oxford or Stockholm at the time they wrote their contributions, participate in this volume. Representing a new generation of social scientists, they have conducted empirical research on social inequality related to class and ethnicity from different perspectives.

    Att överbrygga klyftan mellan lag och handling: antidiskrimineringsorganisationernas verksamhet och allmänhetens ansvar2007In: Makt, kultur och kontroll över invandrares livsvillkor: ett multidimensionellt perspektiv på strukturell diskriminering i Sverige / [ed] Tom R. Burns, Nora Machado, Zenia Hellgren, Göran Brodin, Uppsala: Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis, 2007, p. 411-435Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    EU:s antidiskrimineringsdirektiv har försett svenska organisationer som arbetar mot rasism och diskriminering med ett kraftfullt redskap för att nå politiskt inflytande på ett nationellt plan. Samtidigt är aktörer som företräder antidiskrimineringsorganisationerna överens om att klyftan är djup mellan EU:s lagstiftning å ena sidan, och en bestående och utbredd etnisk diskriminering å andra sidan. Denna diskrepans mellan lag och handling utgör grunden för en ökad mobilisering bland antidiskrimineringsorganisationerna, där en central del av arbetet består i att informera allmänheten och försöka få till stånd en nationell samling mot rasism och etnisk diskriminering. Antidiskrimineringsorganisationerna har tveklöst en viktig roll för information och medvetandegörande, men kan inte ensamma åstadkomma ett samhälle fritt från diskriminering. Dessutom är antidiskrimineringsorganisationernas handlingsutrymme till viss del begränsat av de villkor som ställs för att få del av statliga bidrag och offentligt erkännas som organisation. Detta gör att många organisationer tystar ner kritiska röster av rädsla för att förlora ekonomiska medel och marginaliseras som rörelser. Inte minst försvåras arbetet för ett generellt erkännande av strukturell diskriminering, vilket är en central fråga för de flesta av de här organisationerna, av sådana omständigheter. Risken är därmed att föreställningar om etnisk diskriminering som en marginell företeelse reproduceras och normaliseras, och att vardagsrasism och dold diskriminering samt den svenska majoritetsbefolkningens roll i integrationsprocessen förblir perifera frågor i den offentliga och politiska debatten. En stor del av de uppgifter som redovisas i det här kapitlet bygger på intervjuer med företrädare för ombudsmannen mot etnisk diskriminering (DO), Integrationsverket samt en rad olika antidiskrimineringsorganisationer, NGOs och etniska organisationer som jag har genomfört under 2005 i samband med ett EU-projekt (Hellgren 2005), samt på uppgifter från en annan delrapport inom samma projekt (Carson 2005).

    (De)constructing European Citizenship: Political Mobilization and Collective Identity Formation among Immigrants in Sweden and Spain2008In: Media, Democracy and European Culture / [ed] Ib Bondebjerg and Peter Madsen, Bristol: Intellect , 2008, p. 267-284Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The political construction of a European citizenship and a “European identity” is a project whose support among the diverse European peoples is uncertain indeed. Questions as how notions of citizenship, collective identity, and the more abstract sense of belonging to a community are being transformed by immigration are becoming increasingly salient in national and European discourse and policy. I am interested in the role immigrants themselves play in such dynamics, as social and political actors.

    Markets, Regimes, and the Role of Stakeholders: Explaining Precariousness of Migrant Domestic/Care Workers in Different Institutional Frameworks2015In: Social Politics: International Studies in Gender, State and Society, ISSN 1072-4745, E-ISSN 1468-2893, Vol. 22, no 2, p. 220-241Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Spain and Sweden represent societies with very different welfare, migration, and employment regimes in a European context, but in both countries, female migrant workers in the private domestic/care sectors experience precarious job conditions. The purpose of this article is to explain the situation of migrant workers in these societies through an analysis of both structural components and the position of stakeholders involved in the private care/domestic services sector. Comparing the cases of Spain and Sweden, I argue that different characteristics of regimes and markets-rather paradoxically-produce similar results for the workers. In both countries, there is pressure to keep the wages low. Work hours are often unpredictable and adapted to the clients' demands. In Spain, these workers fill the care gap, representing a comparably affordable solution to the lack of public eldercare. In Sweden, the private domestic services market expanded after the so-called RUT tax subsidy was implemented in 2007. Here, cleaning companies play a key role as middlemen who receive a large share of the cost for these services. Few actors represent the workers, and those who do find themselves restrained by structural factors (as NGOs in Spain) or ambiguous in their support (as the Swedish trade unions). All in all, the female migrant domestic/care workers in Spain and Sweden apparently form part of the development towards a migrant precariat in European societies.

    Myten om det mångkulturella samhället: teoretiska perspektiv på mångkulturalismen2008In: Migration och etnicitet: perspektiv på ett mångkulturellt Sverige / [ed] Mehrdad Darvishpour, Charles Westin, Lund: Studentlitteratur, 2008, p. 81-106Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Sverige har, precis som de flesta andra västeuropeiska samhällen, blivit allt mer etniskt och kulturellt heterogent under de senaste decennierna. Generationer av invandring och flyktingströmmar har påverkat såväl de språk som talas i skolor och på lekplatser som matvanor och kulturutbud. Överallt är ”det mångkulturella samhället” synligt. Frågan är hur väl denna ökade etniska pluralism återspeglas i själva samhällstrukturen. Integration har länge varit det dominerande invandrarpolitiska målet i Sverige. Det har varit närmast underförstått att man med detta har syftat på någon form av anpassning till det svenska samhällets normer. Med ett alternativt synsätt kan det mångkulturella samhället betraktas som ett ömsesidigt integrationsprojekt, där den etniskt svenska majoritetsbefolkningen och de etniska minoritetsgrupperna samarbetar för att tillsammans bygga en ny form av social gemenskap. Ur ett sådant perspektiv lever vi idag inte i ett mångkulturellt samhälle, utan i ett svenskt samhälle vars befolkning visserligen är av varierande etnisk härkomst, men som inte har erkänt sin nya mångkulturella identitet till fullo. Såväl maktstrukturer som generella normer definieras ännu av majoritetsbefolkningen, och etnisk diskriminering är vanligt förekommande både i arbetslivet, på bostadsmarknaden och i krogköerna (DO 2005). Min utgångspunkt är att det sant mångkulturella samhället blir verklighet först när en individs möjligheter och begränsningar inte längre påverkas av dennes hudfärg, namn, religion eller etniska och kulturella tillhörighet.        

    I det här kapitlet kommer jag inledningsvis att redogöra för huvudlinjerna i det teoretiska samtalet om mångkulturalismen. Därefter kommer jag att diskutera betydelsen av det mångkulturella samhället i en svensk kontext, där jag också tar upp de etniska föreningarnas roll som sociokulturella gemenskaper respektive företrädare för minoritetsgruppers intressen.

    Negotiating Social Membership: Immigrant Claims-Making Contesting Borders and Boundaries in Multi-Ethnic Europe2012Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The concept of social membership is the mainframe for this dissertation, which encompasses four independent articles that approach the boundaries of social membership from different perspectives. Empirically, the focus lies on mobilizing groups that demand an extension of rights and/or inclusion for documented and undocumented immigrants in two European immigration countries: Sweden and Spain. I have defined the processes through which mobilizing actors (immigrants themselves and diverse supporters of their cause) interact with boundary-making actors (institutional actors, policy makers), whom through their positions participate in drawing the boundaries between inclusion and exclusion, as negotiating social membership. To study these processes, I have performed 68 interviews with actors as mobilizing immigrants, activists mobilizing on behalf of immigrants, representatives of NGOs and trade unions, policy-makers and politicians. Two main types of claims appeared: undocumented migrants’ rights groups mobilizing for residence permits and social rights, and documented immigrants’ (and their supporters’) advocacy against ethnic discrimination. Furthermore, I have included a study that reflects the tensions over social membership within immigrant communities. The gendered dimension is its main focus, as it illustrates the value conflicts over gender equality and ethnic diversity brought to the surface through the debates following so-called honour killings in Sweden, and the difficulties faced by young immigrant women mobilizing simultaneously against racism and patriarchal oppression. 

    The thesis consists of four independent articles within the overall framework of mobilizing groups demanding extended rights for and/or inclusion of immigrants. By using immigrants’ rights mobilizations, negotiations, debates and agendas, my general aim has been to explore the processes through which social membership is being contested and negotiated by a wide range of actors. In doing so, it has been possible to reveal how legal and symbolic boundaries create exclusionary processes that pose constraints on the social membership of immigrants with different legal statuses.

    Negotiating the Boundaries of Social Membership: Undocumented Migrant Claims-making in Sweden and Spain2014In: Journal of ethnic and migration studies, ISSN 1369-183X, E-ISSN 1469-9451, Vol. 40, no 8, p. 1175-1191Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, I address the role organisations and networks play in mobilising for the rights of undocumented migrants and in setting agendas for their inclusion and social membership. I compare two societies with different frameworks of welfare and migration regimes. The empirical material used in this article consists of 44 interviews with actors involved in the processes I define as negotiating social membership in Stockholm and Barcelona: policy-makers, immigration officials, trade unions, NGO activists and the undocumented migrants themselves. In both Sweden and Spain, mobilising groups have been important for the recognition of undocumented migrants. Until recently, undocumented migrants were largely invisible in the Swedish context, often living in extreme marginalisation and precariousness. In Spain, where the informal labour market is more extended and boundaries between the legal and the illegal are less pronounced, migrants have had greater opportunities to settle and to some degree integrate into society. The political opportunities for mobilised actors vary in relation to both the welfare and migration regimes, the structure of the labour market, and more subtle factors as receptiveness for claims-making at a certain time, tolerance for informality in society, and choices of individual actors in crucial positions.

    Cultural Conflict and Cultural Dialogues in the Good Society: The Case of Honor Killings in Sweden2008In: Ethnicities, ISSN 1468-7968, E-ISSN 1741-2706, Vol. 8, no 3, p. 385-404Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Value conflicts involving gender equality are interwoven intocurrent multicultural tensions in many European societies. Theyare at the core of these tensions in Sweden, in which genderequality and principles of individual human rights constitutethe state profile and political identity. In this article, wefocus on three cases of honor killings that became flash pointsfor public debates on "culture and cultures" among politicalparties, immigrant groups and feminists in Sweden. The mediafervor surrounding honour-related violence has provided xenophobicgroups with political opportunities, but at the same time, thepublic debate has given visibility and opened up public spacefor immigrant women's groups. We conclude that the notion ofthe "good society" has kept at bay the recognition of overtlyxenophobic parties, but it has also inhibited open dialogueacross and within majority and minority cultures, which wouldallow for reflections upon the diversity within cultures, markedby religion, gender, class differences and generational conflicts.
