Abstract [en]

Norrkoping – City of Immigration 2017” is the outcome of an mbitious collaborative project conducted by the Master students in Ethnic and Migration Studies at REMESO, Linkoping University. The very first in a new series of publications from this one-year-old graduate program, this text draws on the diverse research interests of the twenty-three contributors, hailing from twenty-one different regions who have provided a holistic picture of immigration to Norrkoping today.

Students worked as individuals and in groups to produce different journalistic pieces which tackle important themes such as integration, identity politics, representation, multiculturalism, racism, right-wing politics and more. The report reflects the diversity of migrant experiences in Norrkoping, including snapshots of multicultural artistic spaces, a statistical overview of residential segregation, life stories, field work and interviews woven together with analysis of the challenges encountered by immigrants to our city.

Immigrant voices are centered in an attempt to deconstruct stereotypes and to underscore how integration is a two-way process where everyone—both the ‘host’ society and migrants themselves—can contribute. How different groups of migrants are coping with personal trauma is explored by investigation into integration projects financed by the municipality and civil society organizations. The admirable work of these organizations is emphasized in reports from art exhibitions, interviews at social and supportive spaces and profiles of solidarity organizations. In a similar vein, the challenges faced by the local authorities are highlighted in order to equip the reader with a wider overview of the institutional and political obstacles to improving integration outcomes in Norrkoping.

The strength of this report stems from the innovative and collaborative work of the contributors; their enthusiasm, to be agents of positive social and political change radiates from their texts. United to combat exclusion, racism, sexism, and all forms of discrimination in the world, we are deeply grateful for their thoughtful insights and effort. Any errors or omissions, are of course, our own.
