Abstract [en]

During the latest decade, an increasing number of Dutch counter-urban migrants have moved to the Swedish countryside. This text focuses on a number of Dutch families and their search for the good life in a problematic Central Swedish municipality. In the course of the past four years, data have been gathered during observations and interviews with migrant families, municipality officials and project managers both in Sweden and the Netherlands.This text takes a migrant perspective as most data are derived from around ten in-depth interviews with migrant families in this particular Central Swedish municipality. Central questions consider the migrants’ aspirations and expectations prior to moving, as well as their socio-cultural experiences in the place of destination. Attention is given to the migrants’ mode and sector of employment, both prior to and after migration. The aim of this paper is to examine what factors contributed to the decision of the migrants to move to this area in general and this municipality specifically. Moreover, reference is made to the temporal character of their move. The migrants’ relationship to the new home area, as well as the meanings they attach to opportunities of mobility and transnational ties are central themes in this paper.
