The starting point for this study is the situation for Immigrants during the process of integration. This study aims to describe and discuss, with a broad approach, if certain information needs arises when Immigrants meet the Swedish labour market and in such a case, do they use the library and how does the public libraries meet those needs. A secondary aim is to help increase the understanding of Immigrants and forming a basis for further efforts by the libraries to improve services for Immigrants and point at areas where there is a need for further research. - Which expectations and demands meets Immigrants on the labour market and which library needs are possibly generated by this? - What services and range of material do the libraries offer Immigrants and how are they marketed at the libraries homepages on the Internet? - Do Immigrants from outside the western culture use the library and in that case how? Swedish human capital and Swedish social capability are identified as demands that are often held by operators on the labour market.
The aim of this paper is to make an investigation of how authoritative conceptual framework about Immigrants as a group is being constituted in the discourse regarding Swedish language for Immigrants. I will also examine what connections there are to the overarching integration discourse. While doing this I try to establish the contrasting relationship between the ?Swedishness? and ?the Other?. My theoretical framework consists of discussions regarding groups and the relation to homogeneity or heterogeneity in various ways and how We tend to construct the discourse in relation to the Other.

More recently, the number of elderly Immigrants has increased. This means that Sweden is faced with new challenges. The purpose of this study was to illustrate how the elder Immigrants general situation in Helsingborg looks like, as well as how social workers work to integrate this target group. Furthermore, I wished to have an answer on whether social workers feel that there is a continuing need to be concentrated on the integration of elder Immigrants. To get answers to my questions, I have interviewed five social workers in Helsingborg who are working on issues that concern elder and integration.
Biblioteken som stöd för invandrare under integrationsprocessen - En kvalitativ studie på stadsbiblioteken i Malmö och Lund
The aim of the study was to examine how the public libraries participate in the integration of Immigrants in the Malmö-/Lund region. Librarians and Immigrants were interviewed about the services offered by the libraries in the area of multiculturalism and what kind of service that is requested by the Immigrants. The interviews also included possibilities to contribute to increased knowledge among the native Swedish people about different cultures represented among Immigrants in Sweden. From the qualitative analyses it is concluded that the libraries represented in the study contribute to the integration of Immigrants. The respondents gave multiple examples of the libraries? usefulness in the integration process by offering Immigrants possibilities to develop their knowledge in the Swedish language, and also to find information about the Swedish society and culture.
AbstractAuthor: Josefine KostinTitle: A succesful work of integration? ? a case study of the integration work within the Botkyrka municipalityThe last decades, Sweden has become more ethnic heterogenetic. Generations of immigration have affected the Swedish society in many ways; the language that are spoken at work and in schools, culture and the political agenda etcetera. In 2008, Botkyrka municipality was chosen to be the second best at working with integrating Immigrants. On the other hand, Botkyrka has been referred to as a municipality which has failed with the integration of Immigrants; for example, unemployments amongst the Immigrants and segregation.
The purpose of this paper was to investigate the special services for Immigrants which are offered by Swedish libraries on their different levels regional, local and school as well as Immigrants experiences of the library services and how these services and experiences conduct themselves to the development of the harmonic multicultural society. The methods used were interpreting reflexive interviews with Immigrants and librarians. The guiding theory in this study was a three-phase model by Gillis Herlitz according to which a newcomer goes through three stages in an adaptation period. Phase 1 is a positive honeymoon phase, that later is replaced by phase 2, a critical disappointment period, which then ideally should be resolved in phase 3, where the individual reaches a balancing stage of cultural adaptation. The results of my observations indicate that the performances of the different libraries seem to operate in a way that corresponds to the different phases in this model.
The main aim of this paper is to illurninate how a group of Immigrants meet the publiclibrary in Sweden. I have chosen to discuss Iranian Immigrants' meeting with the publiclibrary in Borås. The investigation (qualitative interviews and inquiries) has taken placein the public library of Borås and partly in a local library with high density of Immigrants.A theoretical perspective deals with the case study of dual marginality, where theconception of the "Marginal Man" or "The Outsider" is central. I have indicated how theprevious authors have considered this problem, to live on the verge between twodifferent cultures and how individuals react on it.The interviews and inquiries answered by Iranian Immigrants are the most importantmaterial in this investigation and the result of them is connected to the theoreticalperspective and a discussion, what it means for the public library..
This essay deals with the paradox of why the Immigrants in Sweden, despite their considerable size of 12 % of the population and common interest and living opportunities, haven?t mobilized politically in any significant way. The aim with this essay is to reach a theoretical understanding of why this paradox exist. By the use of a critical case and a theoretical model, based on theories of collective action, the conclusion of this essay is that, despite the fact that the Immigrants have a common interest and an organizational structure, the Immigrants in Sweden has not mobilized politically in any significant way. The main reason for this is that they have a weak common identity and they don?t have the structural opportunities to act..

Racial discrimination can occur in many ways ? intentional and non intentional ? and in many places ? perhaps most observed in the labor market.

The purpose of this study was to investigate how three Swedish news publications writes about integration and Immigrants. The news articles were analyzed with a rhetorical analysis. The method was supplemented with theories of media and ethnicity, agenda setting theory and gatekeeping theory. This study resulted in the conclusion that racist discourses are found in the three news publications, regardless of political color, writer or article genre.
