Abstract [en]

Due to recent crisis and wars around The Middle East there are refugees on the move looking for a safe place to stay. Many seek refuge in Europe and some of them make it all the way up North to Sweden. Because of this Sweden is faced with a challenge, to help these newcomers to become a part of the Swedish society. Integration is a central political discussion and a lot of politicians look upon sport and leisure activities as the answer to a successful integration. With this as background the paper focuses on showing the day-to-day work with integration within a martial arts club where there’s a variety of ethnicities. The essay intends to use theories of socialization and a sharp definition of integration when it exams the martial arts club and their ability to handle the pressure from municipality and politicians when it comes to integrating newcomers. This is an observational study that also uses semi-structured interviews to find valid information. The result shows confusion with integration and assimilation and also the importance of successful socialization and a platform that aloud this to take place. Without these arenas where actual meetings occur, Sweden would maybe be facing an even bigger challenge when it comes to making these refugees or newcomers a working part of Swedish society.
