Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to map and analyze how travelers experience, interpret, and define “freedom of movement” in the Northern part of the Baltic Sea region regarding the border agencies. This qualitative study will be based on empirically gathered material such as field interviews and fieldwork observations on Stockholm’s Arlanda airport in Sweden and a Tallink Silja Line ferry between Stockholm and Riga in Latvia. The general starting point of the study was an ethno-methodologically inspired perspective on verbal descriptions and interactionist perspective, which considers interactions expressed through language and gestures. In addition to this general starting point, this study focused on actors identity work and construction of safety as a particularly relevant components in the collected empirical material. The preliminary findings of this study suggest that many passengers are positive regarding the idea of the freedom of movement in Europe, but scared of threats from outside of Europe. The actor’s identity work created and re-created the phenomenon of safety which is maintained in contrast to the others, in this case the threats from outside of Europe. Erving Goffman means that individual identity creation occurs, among other ways, through dissociation from others. The actors in this study seem to construct safety by a distinction against the others autside Europe but also through interaction with them. Many passengers in the study emphasize that the freedom of movement is positive, because it is easier to travel in and out of Europe.
