Title Ascribed and perceived belongning among immigrant youth
Author Harju, Anne ; Piltz, Åse
Date 2016
English abstract
Drawing on extensive fieldwork in a multicultural urban environment, the paper address the question of belonging among immigrant youth. In an earlier part of the study, a narrative of the categories "Us" (Swedes) and "Them" (Immigrants) revealed negative moral judgments and strong differentiation processes towards the category of "them". It also revealed that minority communities were, by themselves and others, positioned differently in relation to the category “Them”. The conference paper will focus this last issue by investigating how and why certain boundaries/borders are maintained/upheld toward others within the group of immigrants. The focus will be on immigrant youth. Narratives of cultural values, religion and ethnicity are addressed as well as power relationships pertaining to "whiteness" as a theoretical foundation.
