Abstract [en]

The integration policy in Sweden has received criticism for being disintegrating due to the structure of division between those that integrate and those who are to be integrated, a division between “us” and “them”. In 2010 the reform Act on introduction activities for certain newly arrived immigrants (2010:197), was carried out to facilitate the integration of newly arrived immigrants on the labor market. The purpose of this thesis is to study power and discrimination structures within the reform by applying an intersectional theoretical framework. Intersectionality is based on the notion that different forms of discrimination such as gender, ethnicity, class, sexual orientation etc. do not act independently. The theory rather advocates that these categories interact. This essay will focus on how three of them, sex, class and ethnicity interact within the reform by studying the questions: How is the relationship between sex, ethnicity and class described and valued in the reform? In what way does the reform highlight or conceal power structures? The result shows that norms about sex, class and ethnicity are reproduced within the programs related to the reform. Prejudices about foreign women hampers newly arrived women from getting education and employment training that are individualized.
