Abstract [sv]

Denna studie undersöker hur andra generationens invandrare upplever sin tillhörighet och integration till det svenska samhället respektive tillhörigheten till det område de bor i. Studien har en kvalitativ ansats och semistrukturerade intervjuer har genomförts. Urvalet bestod av ett snöbollsurval med åtta svenskfödda informanter mellan arton och trettio år, vars föräldrar var födda utanför Europa. En tematisk analys genomfördes och visade att majoriteten av informanterna upplevde en stigmatisering och utanförskap som bl.a. beror på att de bor i vissa bostadsområden vilket påverkar informanternas identitetsutformning och sociala band. Detta överens stämmer av med tidigare forskning som visat att personer som lever med dubbla etniciteter lever med en ständig kamp för att bli accepterade bland majoritetsgruppen i det svenska samhället och denna kamp har lett till att personerna i studien upplevde utanförskap. Det empiriska materialet analyserades med hjälp av följande teorier; Richard Jenkins teori om social identitet, Erving Goffmans teori om stigma och Scheffs teori om skam och stolthet.

Abstract [en]

This study examines how second generation immigrants perceive their belonging and integration into Swedish society and their belongings to the area in which they live in. The study has a qualitative approach and semistructured interviews have been conducted. The selection consisted of a snowball survey with eight Swedish-born informants between the ages of eighteen and thirty whose parents were born outside of Europe. A thematic analysis was conducted and showed that the majority of informant experienced stigmatization and exclusion, partly because of that they live in certain residential areas which affect the identity of the informants design and social ties. This is supported by earlier research which showed that people living with dual ethnicities live with a constant struggle to be accepted among the majority group in the Swedish society, and this struggle has led to the people in the study experiencing exclusion. The empirical material was analyzed using the following theories: Richard Jenkins theory of social identity, Ervin Goffmans theory about stigma and Scheffs theory of shame and pride.
