Abstract [en]

The aim of the thesis is to consider the changes of behavior toward water consumption among immigrants. This thesis includes the interview with 22 iranian immigrants who migrated to sweden 20 years ago. The theoretical conjuction point contains three theories. The first is habitus which explains the permanency of individuals' habitus toward changing. The second is acculturation which clarifies adaption of immigrants to the culture of host society. The third is ecofeminism which stands in relation between women and nature. By including prime experiences of the studied group in Iran, changes of those experiences in Sweden, and the effect of environmental awareness, it could be said this thesis illustrates the theories of habitus and acculturation which have objective evidences about the studied group who adapt themselves with host society in some aspects but still they are insisting on some other prime behaviors. In water consumption woman are more affected group as theory of ecofeminism legitimize. The notion of this group shows the different levels of their behavior changes; meaning it determines how much these changes result from the effect of acculturation in new society and how much come from the habitus as an inherited experience of their past.
