Maybe they think I am a terrorist : An analysis of cross-border travel among people with foreign background in Sweden (English)
Abstract [en]

This study aims to highlight Swedish citizens with foreign backgrounds which have experienced discrimination and racialization in global travel.  The study analyzed whether Swedes with a foreign background may experience some of the Western World travel privileges when travelling abroad. It also analyzes the differences in international travel between Swedish tourists without a foreign background and Swedish tourists with a foreign background. The study starts from a postcolonial perspective. The methodology used in the study is a qualitative study, in which seven Swedes with foreign backgrounds were interviewed for the collection of material analyzed from a discourse analytical perspective. The result shows that Swedes with a foreign background see themselves as privileged in global travel. Through the Swedish passport, they have had the opportunity to travel. However, they have found their freedom restricted to a certain extent. Several of the respondents have repeatedly been discriminated in their travels, which they believe is based on their origin. This type of discrimination is based on post-colonialism, where we and them, black and white, are seen as each other contrasts which create upper and lower orders.

Abstract [sv]

Denna studie belyser svenskar med utländsk bakgrund och deras upplevelse av diskriminering och rasifiering i det globala resandet. Studien analyserar huruvida svenskar med utländsk bakgrund får ta del av de västländska reseprivilegierna. Vidare analyseras skillnaden i det internationella resandet mellan svenska turister utan utländsk bakgrund och svenska turister med utländsk bakgrund. Studien utgår från ett postkolonialt perspektiv och metoden som används i undersökningen är en kvalitativ undersökning, där sju svenskar med utländsk bakgrund intervjuas för insamling av material som analyseras ur ett diskursanalytiskt perspektiv.  Resultatet visar att svenskar med utländsk bakgrund ser sig själva som privilegierade i det globala resandet. De har genom det svenska passet möjlighet att resa dock begränsas deras frihet till viss del. Flera av respondenterna blir upprepade gånger diskriminerade i sitt resande, vilket den subjektiva upplevelsen hos respondenterna är att det grundar sig i deras ursprung. Denna typ av diskriminering grundar sig i postkolonialism, där vi och dem, svart och vit, ses som varandras kontraster som skapar över- och underordningar.
