Abstract [en]

The thesis takes its first steps along previous theories of social capital based on the research of Bo Rothstein with colleagues contributed to the field. The thesis aims for a deeper investigation into the experiences that according to the theory have affected social trust in the minds of immigrant women in Sweden. The main aim of this thesis is to gain a better understanding and knowledge for groups that have lower social trust than others. According to earlier research on the field, immigrants that come to Sweden, especially those born outside of Europe, tend to have a lower social trust than people born in Sweden and Europe (Holmberg & Rothstein, 2016:3). This thesis therefore probes the complex topic of “how contacts with public bodies, the service such institutions offer, affect social trust among citizens depending on the ability to provide justice” (Rothstein & Kumlin, 2005:348). Two research questions are used to fulfil this purpose; the first being if immigrant women’s interpersonal trust is affected by experiences in personal contact with public bodies? The second question to be answered is how interpersonal trust can be seen to be affected by such experiences and contacts? This thesis aims to answer those questions through the method of interviews with immigrant women in Sweden. The empirical material concludes that contacts with public bodies influence the ability to trust other people and that it is possible to regain trust in another society, but also that there might be a lot more to consider for a greater understanding of immigrant women’s social trust.
