Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka ifall invandrare och svenskfödda med utländsk bakgrund någon gång har utsatts för etnisk diskriminering under deras liv i Sverige och hur denna etniska diskriminering i så fall sett ut. Följande frågeställningar har använts för att besvara syftet: har respondenterna någonsin utsatts för etnisk diskriminering i Sverige, om ja hur har diskrimineringen kommit till uttryck samt upplever de respondenter som utsatts för etnisk diskriminering att den på något sätt påverkat deras hälsa? I studien användes en kvalitativ metod med individuella intervjuer som datainsamlingsmetod. Respondentgruppen bestod av två invandrare bosatta i Sverige och tre svenskfödda med annan etnisk bakgrund. Tolkningen av det insamlade intervjumaterialet utfördes med hjälp av de hermeneutiska principerna. Resultaten visade bland annat att samtliga respondenter hade utsatts för etnisk diskriminering i Sverige, varav majoriteten av dessa hade utsatts under en längre period samt vid upprepade tillfällen. De flesta respondenterna som diskriminerades, blev det genom bland annat orättvist behandling, nedvärderande blickar och kommentarer, vilket samtidigt har påverkat deras psykiska hälsa negativt. Den respondent som hade utsatts mest för etnisk diskriminering var av utomnordiskt ursprung, medan respondenten som hade utsatts minst var av europeiskt ursprung.    

Abstract [en]

This study has the purpose to examine if immigrants living in Sweden and Swedish-born with foreign backgrounds have ever been subjected to ethnic discrimination during their residency in Sweden and how the ethnic discrimination would come to look like. In order to answer the purpose, the following questions have been used: have the respondents ever been subjected to ethnic discrimination in Sweden, if yes how has the discrimination been expressed and has this subjection in any way impacted the respondents’ health. In this study a qualitative method was used, with individual interviews as a data collection method. The respondent group consisted of two immigrants residing in Sweden and three Swedish-born with other foreign backgrounds. The interpretation of the obtained interview material was carried out using the hermeneutic principles. The results show that all the participating respondents have been subjected to ethnic discrimination, of which the majority for an extended period of time and repeatedly. Most respondents that were discriminated against were among other things subjected to unfair treatment, disparaging glances and comments, with a negative impact on their mental health. The respondent that had been affected the most where of non-Nordic descent, the least affected respondent was of European descent.
