Abstract
To create fair conditions between majority and minority in Sweden is a challeging project. Male immigrants usually do not get same opportunities for a success identity structure and integration into Swedish society as women and children. The aim of this thesis is therefore to critically examine and analyse the processes regarding identity structure and integration for male immigrants with a specific focus on Helsingborg. The object of this study is Mansgrupp, a project which helps men to build up a secure ground for identity structure and which further helps them to integrate into the society. To be able to reach the results I have made a literature study as well as a minor field study in Helsingborg, where I conducted interviews with men... (More)
To create fair conditions between majority and minority in Sweden is a challeging project. Male immigrants usually do not get same opportunities for a success identity structure and integration into Swedish society as women and children. The aim of this thesis is therefore to critically examine and analyse the processes regarding identity structure and integration for male immigrants with a specific focus on Helsingborg. The object of this study is Mansgrupp, a project which helps men to build up a secure ground for identity structure and which further helps them to integrate into the society. To be able to reach the results I have made a literature study as well as a minor field study in Helsingborg, where I conducted interviews with men from the above mentioned project. To analyse identity structure and integration processes I used theory models by Norbert Elias, Erik Olsson, Aleksandra Ålund, Rachel Fraser and Robert W Connell. The study showed, among other things, that it is difficult to produce a secure identity structure due to discrimination and oppression, which has its roots in the political and social institutions of the country. Despite the fact that male immigrants are positive to integration in the long term the difficult identity structure process leads to a problematic integration for minorities and especially for men who loses their hegemony. The political and social institutions that reproduce the discrimination must change in order to build up a unified Sweden. (Less)
