“We are located all over the world… We think and have Eritrea in our thoughts and memories” : A narrative analysis of diasporic belonging in Sweden (English)
Abstract [en]

This thesis examines how different persons origin from Eritrea express their diasporic belonging in Sweden and how this appears in their stories about their former homeland. This has been done by five qualitative interviews that has been processed using a narrative analysis. The diasporic belonging is operationalized to the three diaspora indicators; Dispersion, Homeland Orientation and Boundary-Maintenance. These indicators help us to understand the persons dispersions in the transnational social field and different levels of long-distance nationalism in their homeland orientated positions. The result shows that the diasporic belonging differs depending on self-perceived events and stories among people of the Eritrean diaspora in Sweden. The narratives in the study discern different beliefs about religion and political participation in the direction to Eritrea, which indicates that the Eritrean diaspora in Sweden is dynamic and multifaceted.
