Dreams of a homeland : Diasporic identity and transnational networks in the Swedish diversity (English)
Abstract [sv]

Detta är en kvalitativ studie vars huvudfokus belyser hur två etniska folkgrupper, ”assyrier/syrianer” samt bosniaker förhåller sig till sin etniska identitet utanför ursprungslandet och hur dem ser på att leva i diasporiska grupper. Studien behandlar även betydelsen av transnationella nätverk och förbindelser över nationsgränser. Diasporiska grupper har kommit att utveckla transnationella nätverk som överskrider nations gränser och människor liv påverkas dagligen direkt samt indirekt av att leva mellan två identiteter. Det finns människor i samhället som drar nytta av denna kulturella rikedom som finns inom etniska och kulturella föreningar men det finns även dem som ser begräsningar inom samhället genom att ha två identiteter.

The study also addresses the importance of transnational networks and connections across national borders. Diasporic groups have come to develop transnational connections that excess nation´ borders and human lives are affected daily direct and indirect of living between two identities.
