Acculturation strategies : First and second generation immigrants and their adaption to the new society (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka om det fanns en skillnad mellan första och andra generationens invandrare och hur de upplevde olika ackulturationsstrategier. Studiens struktur är uppbyggd med en kvantitativ ansats. De nyckelbegrepp som har används genom studien och som utgör grunden är integration, assimilation, separation och marginalisering. Tidigare forskning har visat på att andra generationens invandrare föredrar ackulturationsstrategin integration mer än första generationens invandrare. Det ingick 117 respondenter där första generationen bestod av 57 respondenter och andra generationen bestod av 60 respondenter. Respondenterna kom från länder spridda över hela världen och var även bosatta i flertalet städer runt om i Sverige. Resultatet stämmer i stort sätt överens med vad den tidigare forskningen sagt. Andra generationens invandrare föredrar ackulturationsstrategin integration mer än första generationen invandrare. Dock så visade denna studies resultat att denna skillnad inte var så stor. Det visades även att marginalisering är den ackulturationsstrategi som respondenterna föredrog minst, oavsett vilken generation de tillhör. 

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate whether there was a difference between first and second-generation immigrants and how they experienced different acculturation strategies. The structure of the study is structured with a quantitative approach. The key concepts used, which are the foundation of the study, are integration, assimilation, separation and marginalization. Previous research has shown that second-generation immigrants prefer the acculturation strategy integration more than first-generation immigrants. There was a total of 117 respondents where the first generation consisted of 57 respondents and the second generation consisted of 60 respondents. Respondents came from countries spread all over the world and were also resident in cities from all over Sweden. The result is broadly in line with what the previous research said. Second generation immigrants prefer the acculturation strategy integration more than the first generation of immigrants. However, this study showed that this difference was not so great. It was also shown that marginalization is the acculturation strategy that respondents preferred least, no matter what generation they belong to.
