Abstract [en]

This essay aims to illustrate how a country like Sweden, that seems to be driven by humanism, can potentially act in a way that is completely different to their humanitarian image. This is illustrated by exploring the problematic features of the migration process Eritreans face in Sweden today, that requires them to seek out Eritrean embassies in order to obtain identity documents. This has been accomplished through a text analysis of the international regulations that are being violated in the Eritrean case. The result has then been analyzed and explained with the help of a framework based on Gidden’s structuration theory. The research shows that there has been a violation of human rights, the Refugee Convention as well as a UN resolution. The structuration theory explains this as a result of binding laws that constitute the structure of society, but the Swedish Migration Agency’s conduct in the Eritrean case also works as a form of reinforcement of the structure today. In other words, the structure is a prerequisite and a result of the agency’s action.
