Migration and identity : A qualitative interview study with arabic speaking female immigrants in Sweden (English)
Abstract [en]

Migration is a current subject in today's society. Many people are forced to migrate to a new country, but many of them are moving for other reasons, for example to study, to work or start a family. The aim of this paper is to gain an increased understanding of Arabic speaking female immigrant’s experiences of the adaptation process and whether there is a change in gender identity. The selection consists of Arabic speaking women who have lived in Sweden for a maximum of five years. A qualitative approach has been used and data were collected through interviews and analyzed within the themes that were presented by the research. In analysis, four such themes were identified, such as identity, social relations, cultural differences and migration processes. The result of the study shows that the majority of the respondents perceive that they have been affected by migration, that they have experienced cultural differences in Sweden compared with their homelands and that they are influenced by their social relations.

Abstract [sv]

Migration är ett aktuellt ämne i dagens samhälle. Många människor tvingas fly, men många flyttar även av andra skäl, för att exempelvis studera, arbeta eller bilda familj. Syftet med arbetet är att få en ökad förståelse kring arabisktalande kvinnliga immigranters upplevelser av anpassningsprocessen och huruvida det sker en förändring gällande deras könsidentitet. Urvalet består av arabisktalande kvinnor som flytt från sina hemländer och som har bott i Sverige i högst fem år. En kvalitativ ansats har använts och data samlades in genom intervjuer och analyserades med tematisk analys. Vid analys framkom fyra övergripande teman som var identitet, sociala relationer, kulturella skillnader och migrationsprocessen. Resultatet av undersökningen visar på att majoriteten av respondenterna upplever att de har påverkats av migrationen, att de har upplevt kulturella skillnader i Sverige jämfört med deras hemländer och att de har influerats av deras sociala relationer.
