    NJMR: Over 10 Years of Commitment to Publishing Excellent Research2022In: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 12, no 4, p. 376-378Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    When Nordic Migration Research (NMR) was launched in 2008, there was total agreement among the founding members that one of the primary objectives of the organization was to establish a high-quality, interdisciplinary Nordic journal for research on international migration and migration-related issues in an international and transnational setting. Accordingly, the NMR statutes define the aim of the Nordic Journal for Migration Research (NJMR) as "devoted to publishing high-quality, peer -reviewed research in different aspects of international migration and ethnic relations, such as integration, ethnicity/race, culture, religion, marginalization, citizenship, nationalism, discrimination and racism". The statutes further specify that the NJMR aims to develop into "a forum for both applied and theoretical research, seeking to attract high-quality, original contributions from both Nordic and non-Nordic countries", and that an important part of its mission and raison d'etre would be to focus particularly, although not exclusively, on the areas mentioned above with respect to their relevance to and impact on "the Nordic countries in a global perspective" (Hedetoft & Sicakkan 2011: 1).

    Over-Education amongst the Children of Immigrants in Sweden2015In: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 5, no 1, p. 36-46Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The main focus of the article is whether immigrants' descendants have the same occupational mismatch as immigrants, or whether their experiences reflect those of the population with Swedish-born parents. Register data for the entire population of Sweden for the year 2007 is used for a multivariate analysis. All employed individuals aged between 25 and 64 have been selected. The main results show that the descendant generation has lower levels of mismatch compared to the immigrant generation: the male descendant population shows higher odds of being over-educated, whereas the female descendant population does not significantly differ in this from Swedish-born individuals with two Swedish-born parents.

    Transgressive Solidarity: From Europe's Cities to the Mediterranean Sea2020In: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 10, no 4, p. 90-106Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the wake of increasing migrant deaths in the Mediterranean, non-governmental organizations took to the seas to conduct search and rescue operations in 2014. In 2016, this humanitarian fleet rescued 50,000 people in the Central Mediterranean Sea. In the meantime, local solidarity initiatives emerged across Europe, motivated by the arrival of many people in their cities and by deaths and border spectacles in the Mediterranean. Juxtaposing solidarity work in the Mediterranean Sea with solidarity work within the European Union's borders, we examine how the spaces they operate in shape the possibilities and limits of solidarity activism. Despite identifying important differences, we ultimately demonstrate how the solidarity work within Europe and in the Mediterranean Sea fold into each other in complex ways. Moreover, we show how across Europe, people engage in transgressive solidarity work that challenges EU border practices and concomitant categories to reimagine a more welcoming Europe.

    Dreaming of Sweden as a Space of Well-Being: Lifestyle Migration Among Young Latvians and Romanians2019In: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 9, no 2, p. 201-219Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on 41 semi-structured interviews with young Latvians and Romanians in Malmö, Sweden, this article explores why Europeans from new European Union (EU) member states want to move to, and stay in, Sweden despite economic difficulties and underemployment. Six main factors for explaining mobility patterns are highlighted: free university education, romantic relationships, cosmopolitan lifestyle, presence of English language, idealisation of Sweden and work–life balance. We read these factors as ideas and aspirations of well-being in the ‘imagined space’ of Sweden. The findings illustrate that many young migrants do not chose to move to Sweden for short-term economic opportunities, but rather to experience a different lifestyle. In most cases, these expectations are met, although over time.

    Transnational regimes and migrant responses in an altered historical conjuncture2018In: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 8, no 4, p. 199-200Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Those who live their lives across the borders of nation-states as well as scholars and policy makers who research transnational lives are facing rapid alterations in mobility regimes. The articles in this special issue represent trends among transnational migration scholars who have been documenting various aspects of these changes. In order to be able to respond adequately to the transformations in the world that effect migrants and non-migrants alike, it is necessary to theorize temporality.

    Migrants and Swedish Activists in Solidarity: Pro-Asylum Activism as a Pathway of Political Socialisation in Malmö2022In: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 12, no 4, p. 452-468Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article examines how pro-asylum activism contributes to the political socialisation of precarious migrants who become activists, and how it facilitates their social and spatial emplacement in a particular locality. Drawing on ethnographic fieldwork conducted in 2013–2016 in the city of Malmö, an important site of pro-asylum and anti-racist activism in Sweden, the article analyses how some migrants re-establish their lives by building social relationships with established local activists. These relationships help them gain the knowledge and ability to develop their own activist trajectories, form their own organisations, and dare to conduct activism in public spaces, despite being undocumented.

    'HEALING YOUNG HEARTS': emotional and psychosocial dimensions of well-being among young-adult Spanish migrants in the London region2019In: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 9, no 2, p. 161-177Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on 20 in-depth interviews with young Spaniards aged 20-35 years in the London region, this article explores the linked processes of migration, adaptation, and young-adult life transitions from the perspective of psychosocial well-being. Although most young Spaniards have moved for economic reasons, they also have personal and emotional motivations. The article explores factors that mediated their well-being experiences in the destination setting, such as the role of social networks and the achievement of their aspirations. Aspirations were not only material, in the form of a steady and higher income, but also factors such as language improvement, reuniting with a partner or friend, and being independent from their family. The findings of the paper contribute new insights into the factors that condition the relationship between migration and psychosocial well-being during the transition of young people to adulthood.

    Routes To Roots: Second-Generation Turks From Germany 'Return' To Turkey2014In: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 4, no 3, p. 126-133Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on 26 in-depth interviews with German-born second-generation adults of Turkish parentage who have relocated to the Istanbul region, this paper consists of three parts corresponding to three questions regarding: (i) their memories of growing up in Germany, (ii) the circumstances and motivations surrounding their 'return' and (iii) their experiences of life in Turkey since return. We draw on the conceptual notion of 'third space' to propose that the second-generation returnees occupy a fourth sociocultural space that is distinct from German society, Turkish society and the Turkish immigrant community in Germany.

    ‘I Am Going to Europe Tomorrow’: The Myth of the Anchor Child and the Decision to Flee in the Narratives of Unaccompanied Children2018In: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 8, no 2, p. 91-98Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The term ‘anchor child’ implicates that, to create future homes in another country, parents supposedly use their children by sending them on a mission as ‘unaccompanied minors’. Since the term is sometimes used in public debate, our aim is to use elements of this stereotype to analyse and contrast it to the young people’s own narratives. Through repeated interviews and observations with 23 unaccompanied children living in Sweden over the course of one year, this article provides complex narratives of the decision to escape, the rationality of the escape plan and the ways in which the young people reflect on possible future reunion with their families. Results show that their flight and its outcome is related to the young people’s agency during a struggle for survival affected by current political and social contexts, making the tendency to interpret the children’s situation through a ‘Western’ nuclear family rationality highly problematic.

    Providing rights through individual compassion: The ambivalent rights talk within refugee resettlement work2016In: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 6, no 3, p. 140-147Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article analyses the social constructions of rights as they come about through Swedish delegations preparing refugees for resettlement in Sweden, under the Cultural Orientation Programme (COP). COPs are analysed as an activity that manifests a need to convey rights. Fieldwork was conducted through video observations of COPs in Kenya and Sudan. Our empirical findings show how the Swedish officials engage in talks about rights through positioning the refugees as unaware of, and incapable of, claiming rights. Rights are also highlighted as obligations with correct ways of realising them. This study manifests the clash between rights as universal and rights tied to citizenship where, during COPs, rights are conveyed as particularly Swedish, positioning the refugees on a receiving end of the conversations. However, the study also shows how the participants do make claims, sometimes resisting the hierarchies during the talks.

    Temporal Racism and the Invisibilization of Work: or Why Some Can Eat Ice Cream with their Kids While Others Cannot2024In: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 4, no 4, p. 1-15Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Through the concepts of temporal racism and racial capitalism, this articleexplores how time is racialized in Swedish unemployment projects, shapinga racialized and gendered division of labor. The article identifies three formsof temporal racism practices: temporal racism through the invisibilization ofwork, through waiting, and through wasting. I argue that these practices oftemporal racism create diverse forms of labor and are therefore importantfactors in the production and reproduction of racial capitalism. Temporalracism deprives those defined as ‘foreign-born unemployed women’ of timefor joy, pleasure, community, and family; instead, it ensures that their time isused to transform them into racialized workers, moving between precariousemployment and surplus populations.

    How does place matter to highly skilled migrants? Work/non-work experiences of international physicians in Norway and Sweden2020In: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 10, no 1, p. 51-68Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article tackles the question of how place matters to migrant physicians in the regions of Agder in Norway and Skåne in Sweden by exploring how place-specific conditions affect their experiences in the work, private, family and social domains of life. For this purpose, the article uses thematic analysis of the narrative material gathered through 25 semi-structured interviews. The lens of work/non-work domains, combined with a practice-oriented approach to place, highlights the complexity of lived experiences as they evolve in a particular context. Three main findings are identified: the non-homogenous significance of place across life domains, the vital role of transborder connections and obligations that affect individual and family resources for work/non-work negotiations in the place of settlement and the limits to the skill-based privileges in the place of settlement, which are notable in the domain of work but not replicated in non-work domains.

    Conceptualising Social Work Through the Lens of Transnationalism: Challenges and Ways Ahead2018In: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 8, no 4, p. 245-253Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Professional social work was established and expanded in a historical moment marked by intense nation-building; it was organized along and in parallel with other welfare state services which functioned to strengthen the nation-state. Today social work is at practice in a society marked by intensified globalisation; social needs and social problems that social workers are confronted with in their professional practice are sometimes transnational in their dynamics and cannot adequately be understood when limited to a local or national context. Drawing on insights from the transnational perspective, this article identifies challenges and ways ahead in the development of social work practice and theory with relevance for the globalised society. It argues that the transnational perspective can contribute to the dissolving of binaries between both ‘here’ and ‘there’, and ‘us’ and ‘them’ in social work, and pave the way for approaching social problems from a relational viewpoint beyond ‘given’ territorial and ethnocultural lenses.

    Talk on the Media’s Role in Creating Otherness and Exclusion: Discursive Identifications and Public (Dis)Connections2014In: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 4, no 4, p. 201-209Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, we examine how media coverage of migration issues and portrayal of migrants are reflected upon and talked about among families with migrant backgrounds living in Sweden. To date, most Nordic media research on migration has focused on studying media texts, such as representations of migrant and minority issues, rather than on media uses and practices. However, the present study is based on a discursive and contextual approach to media reception, implying in-depth informant interviews, mainly in people’s homes, supported by observations and field notes. Attention is directed towards the informants’ readings of certain media texts, with particular emphasis on their views concerning the media’s role in the creation of otherness and exclusion. Key issues like “truth” and media objectivity, cultural imperialism, non-ethical Western journalism in terms of lifestyle, and norms and values exemplify how symbolic exclusion operates, which in the long run may have profound implications on people’s connections to a shared public world.

    Reciprocity as a Value in Integration: Integration Workers' Reflections On the Role of Gift-Giving For the Process of Integration2024In: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 14, no 3, article id 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article makes a case for the usefulness of the concept of reciprocity for studying integration. Conceptually, the article draws on a wide disciplinary specter of theories on reciprocity and gift-giving. Concerned with the individual and societal effects of the mutual acts of giving, receiving, and reciprocating, such theories allow to visibilize the value(s) that is created and exchanged through reciprocal relations, and highlight the social and cultural embeddedness of reciprocal norms. Empirically, the article draws on fieldwork inquiries into the value landscape of the integration sector in Sweden. Aside from explicit values, such as gender equality, democracy, or nondiscrimination, the importance of acts of giving, receiving, and reciprocating has manifested itself as a strong, albeit implicit value in the material. Prompted by this insight, this article highlights the ideas and expectations of reciprocal relations that the integration workers reflected on. With these insights, this article adds to the small but increasingly important body of literature that places reciprocity at the heart of integration processes.

    Multiscalar Un-homing: Residents’ Experiences of Interventions for Social Mix2024In: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 14, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Social mix has become a goal of urban policy in the Western world. However, research has emphasised a lack of expected effects, such as increased social and economic opportunities for disadvantaged groups. In addition, the experiences of residents during the implementation phase are underexplored. The purpose of this article is to explore how residents in a multi-ethnic public housing neighbourhood in Copenhagen, Denmark, experience interventions for social mix.

    This article goes beyond the migrant/citizen distinction and highlights the perspectives of those affected by the ghetto legislation. Based on ethnographic fieldwork, the analysis shows how residents live under a condition of evictability and risk forced relocation. Moreover, the analysis demonstrates how people lose their homeplace even when remaining as their neighbourhood undergoes physical and social transformation. Highlighting discursive, material and psychological dimensions of un-homing, the article concludes that un-homing is multiscalar and unequally distributed as income, age and migration background affect experiences of un-homing. By showing how policies targeting migrants at the local neighbourhood level also have consequences for non-migrants and on multiple scales, the article contributes to bridging the research fields of critical migration studies and critical urban studies and adds new empirical knowledge to the literature about social mix.
