The study involves six Bosnian refugees experience of integration into Swedish society.The purpose of this study is, through the use of a qualitative method, to get an understanding of what the integration process in the Swedish society has been like for six Bosnian refugees.. These refugees fled from the war in former Yugoslavia and came to Sweden between the years 1992-1995. The country who was once called Yugoslavia is currently divided into six republics comprising, Bosnia-Hercegovina, Croatia, Slovenia, Montenegro, Macedonia and Serbia, with its provinces, Vojvodina and Kosovo. The main focus of the study has been in the respondent’s thoughts and experiences of integration into Swedish society. I have made a qualitative study of these six Bosnian refugees concerning their experience of integration into the Swedish society. The theory and interpretation of integration as applied in this study is Alberto Diaz integration theory that addresses various factors essential if integration is successful or not for an refugee. The results of the study show that the informants believe that one can achieve a successful integration through personal involvement. The informants also believe it is important to learn the language, culture and standards of the country that you live in.
