Abstract [en]

This action research project is aimed to study how heritage could be applied to allow immigrants solve their own problems within their own cultural context. My study has shown great potentialities of improving the life of the people who arrived to Sweden recently and the entire community in general. The study applies a participatory com-munity approach with the methodology to conduct the research with an intention to allow immigrants identify their problems and seek solutions in a cultural context, especially in areas where the services of the Municipality and State are not covering.
