: A study on the difference in treatment of Nordic and non-Nordic migrant workers by the Swedish authorities 1947 - 1964 (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is first and foremost to examine how the treatment of Nordic and non-Nordic migrant worker groups differed from each other during the time period 1947 to 1964, seen through the lens of the Swedish authorities. The study focuses primarily on the ”landsfiskal,” a now defunct civil servant position that served as a combination of prosecutor, bailiff and chief constable, as well as Statens Utlänningskommission, whose modern equivalent is the Swedish Migration Agency. The study is a blend of qualitative and quantitative research, using qualitative methods to determine if and how the treatment of different migrant groups differed by way of studying official protocols and  other documents from the landsfiskal and Statens Utlänningskommission, as well as using the same material in a quantitative manner to support the qualitative study by determining which migrant groups appear in the study and how many members each group has.

It is clear that the treatment of Nordic and non-Nordic migrant workers differed quite heavily during this time period, with the Swedish state showing great distrust and wariness toward the non-Nordic migrant groups, those from Eastern Europe in particular, and attempting to control them through such things as travel restrictions. Certain Nordic migrants have such restrictions and other methods of control placed on them as well, but not nearly to the extent or severity of those placed on the non-Nordic migrants. The exact reasons for the distrust and wariness displayed by the Swedish authorities has been unable to be determined.
