Integration of newly arrived women : A discourse analysis of labor policy measures from a feminist perspective (English)
Abstract [en]

The word integration is a well-known word and often used in today's media and politics. The question is if integration is ever spoken in terms of integrations for men and integration for women instead of integration generally. What we can see from several studies is the newly arrived women's exclusion from the integration to the Swedish society, especially on the labor market. This problem is rarely discussed throughout politicians and how they can remove this exclusion from the society, and what kind of efforts that needs to be made on a national level to create a more accepting society. This essay is created to highlight the problems and difficulties that may arise while integrating into the Swedish society and labor market as an immigating woman. This was studied through three different Swedish national documents: “2017 Budgetpropositionen om etableringsinsatser” and two action plans from the Swedish labor authority called “Arbetsförmedlingen”. With the help of the questions, the material was investigated in which efforts are being made in the labor market for newly arrived women seen from a feminist perspective in the documents. The material was read and analyzed based on a discourse analysis using a content analysis. The essay is based on a feminist theory, that is embedded in two feminist perspectives which are: the theory of gender roles and the intersectional perspective. The results of the study show a clear lack of the intersectional perspective, where new arrivals are seen as a homogeneous group. The documents do not express themselves based on the correct terms and the structural problems are not addressed sufficiently, which creates problems for the newly arrived woman to be integrated into the labor market. Therefore, there is a need in national documents to focus more to the needs of the individual, and see it from several grounds and not just see it from a gender perspective. This creates more individualized efforts, but we are not there yet.
