Abstract
National identity, multiculturalism and invisible norms are three conceptions focused on in this essay.

The method of this essay comprises partly a literature study and partly a qualitative analysis of text.

My discussion and analysis ended in an understanding of national identity and multiculturalism as complex and interrelated conceptions. I found parts of a Swedish national identity in the value of working, in the fear of the cultural unknown and of eventual anti Swedish culture, in the idea of Sweden as the best country in the world considering gender equality and in the strong defence for the Swedish language. Multiculturalism is understood by the Liberal Party more in terms of limited tolerance and human rights than group specific treatment. (Less)
