Title Challenges of migration for the social pedagogy in Swedish context

English abstract
The key aspects to how the Swedish social insurance system is implemented are a high degree of universalism and the promotion of equality. The aim of this article is to explore certain issues of complexity in recent societal changes, in order to understand how to facilitate the provision of social welfare to disadvantaged migrant groups. The arguments presented in this article draw on contemporary research, current statistical resources and secondary sources in considering institutional aspects of social work and the provision of social pedagogy. The outlined contemporary issues concerning the migration situation in Sweden are reflected upon social segregation and social protection considered to be crucial to social pedagogy regimes. It is found that hidden social structures embedded in policy of e.g., multiculturalism may be counterproductive for the integration of new arrives. It is concluded that social work and social pedagogy practice need to go behind the hidden modes of explaining immigrant groups marginalisation and the occurred mechanisms of structural and institutional logics within and out of the social welfare system. New arrives might need special attention as they are likely to suffer from vulnerability formed by poverty, dependence of social support and poor social cohesion in the host country. Awareness of these issues will make social pedagogy practitioner able to create a focal points of performativity and facilitate treatment of immigrant groups across the social service system.
