Title Migration and working life in transformation
Author(s) Wigerfelt, Anders
Date 2010
Editor(s) Fernández, Christian; Hellström, Anders
English abstract
The study focuses on Hungarian refugees who came to Sweden in 1956-57 and their entry into working life and continued careers. They are then compared with Iranians who mainly fled to Sweden during the 1980s and with Bosnians who arrived in Sweden in 1993-94. How ideas about categories of migrants are expressed and change over time is discussed against the background of transformations in working life, economy and society; a kind of socially historic perspective in which the interplay between structures, actors and events are seen from a procedural perspective.
