Abstract [en]

Purpose:The purpose of this study is to map and analyse how travellers at an airportand on ferries experience, interpret and define the risk, safety and freedom ofmovement in the northern part of the Baltic Sea region with regard to the borderagencies.Design/Methods/Approach:This qualitative study is based on empirically gathered material such asfield interviews and fieldwork observations on Stockholm’s Arlanda airport inSweden, and a Tallink Silja Line ferry running between Stockholm and Riga inLatvia. The study’s general starting point was an ethno-methodologically inspiredperspective on verbal descriptions along with an interactionist perspective whichconsiders interactions expressed through language and gestures. Apart from thisstarting point, this study focused on the construction of safety as particularlyrelevant components of the collected empirical material.Findings:The study findings suggest that many passengers at the airport and on theferries hold positive views about the idea of the freedom of movement in Europe,but are scared of threats coming from outside Europe. The travellers created andre-created the phenomenon of safety which is maintained in contrast to others, inthis case the threats from outside Europe.Originality/Value:The passengers in this study construct safety by distinguishing against theothers outside Europe but also through interaction with them. The passengersemphasise that the freedom of movement is personally beneficial because it iseasier for EU citizens to travel within Europe but, at the same time, it is regardedas facilitating the entry of potential threats into the European Union.

Namen:Namen prispevka je predstaviti raziskavo, v kateri so avtorji analiziraliizkušnje potnikov letalskega in trajektnega prometa severnega predela Baltskegamorja. Cilj je ugotoviti in analizirati, kako potniki z vidika mejnega nadzoradefinirajo in interpretirajo tveganja, varnost ter svobodo gibanja.Metode:Izvedena je bila kvalitativna metoda zbiranja podatkov, in sicer v oblikiterenskega opazovanja in intervjuvanja potnikov na švedskem letališču Arlanda(Stockholm) in trajektni liniji Tallink Silja Line med Stockholmom, Rigo in Latvijo.V interakciji s potniki je bila kot izhodišče uporabljena etnografska metoda, kise osredotoča na proučevanje verbalne in neverbalne komunikacije. Pri analizizbranih podatkov so se avtorji primarno osredotočili na razumevanje zaznavanjpotnikov glede varnosti.Ugotovitve:Rezultati kažejo, da je veliko potnikov v raziskavi naklonjenih evropski idejisvobodnega gibanja, vendar jih je pri tem strah groženj, ki izvirajo iz zunanjegaokolja Evropske unije. Avtorji ugotavljajo, da potniki varnost doživljajo inocenjujejo v razmerju do drugih ljudi, njihova stališča pa so odvisna od dogajanjav zunanjem okolju – v konkretnem primeru so to grožnje, ki se pojavljajo zaevropskimi mejami (npr. terorizem).Izvirnost/pomembnost prispevka:Raziskava v prispevku pojasnjuje, kako potniki dojemajo varnost vpotniškem prometu in kako oblikujejo oz. razvijejo to zaznavanje. Med analizonjihovih stališč se je pokazalo, da druge ljudi ocenjujejo glede na izvorno državoin jih kategorizirajo na “zunanje in notranje”. Stališča glede varnosti oblikujejotudi skozi izkušnje v tujem potniškem prometu. Potniki sicer poročajo, da imajozaradi politike svobodnega gibanja veliko osebnih koristi, vendar pa menijo, dase s tem ustvarjajo nove ranljivosti in povečuje verjetnost varnostnih tveganj za Evropsko unijo.
