"The Roma are Roma and we are Rudari" : A qualitative study based on female EU migrants' identity perceptions (English)
Abstract [sv]

De EU-migranter som befinner sig i Sverige, oftast för att försörja sig genom tiggeri, ses ofta av allmänheten som romer. Majoriteten av de människor som kommer till Sverige för att tigga kommer ursprungligen från Rumänien, dock visar resultatet att alla inte anser sig vara romer även om de har mycket gemensamt med den romska minoriteten. Syftet med denna studie är att genom kvalitativa intervjuer undersöka kvinnliga EU-migranters identitetsuppfattningar samt öka kunskapen om mångfalden bland EU-migranterna. Under intervjuerna framgick det att respondenterna anser sig vara rumäner, samtidigt som de anser sig tillhöra folkgruppen rudari och känner till att de av omgivningen ses som romer. Med hjälp av den sociala identitetsteorin har resultatet analyserats för att ge en förståelse för hur människor, inklusive respondenterna själva kategoriserar sig i ingrupp (vi) respektive utgrupp (de). Studien visar att romer inte är en enhetlig etnisk grupp, eller som en av respondenterna själv uttryckte det: ”Romerna är romer och vi är rudari”. 

Abstract [en]

The EU migrants who are in Sweden, most often to support themselves by begging, are often seen by the general public as Roma. The majority of the people who come to Sweden to beg originally come from Romania, the result shows that not all do consider themselves to be Roma even though they have a lot in common with the Roma minority. The purpose of this study is to investigate, through qualitative interviews, female EU migrants view on their identity perceptions and to raise awareness of the diversity within the group called EU migrants. During the interviews it turned out that the respondents identified themselves as Romanians, at the same time they consider themselves to belong to the ethnic group Rudari. They were also aware of that the general public consider them to be Roma. With the help of the Social Identity Theory, the result has been analyzed to provide an understanding of how people, including the respondents themselves, categorizes into ingroup (us) and outgroup (them). The study shows that Roma are not a unified ethnic group or, as one of the respondents themselves said: ”The Roma are Roma and we are Rudari”.
