Immigration - embracing a new culture

Jansson, Hanna (2003)
Sociology
Abstract
This research is about Swedish people migrating to England. People are migrating more than ever before all over the world. This is because the globalisation process that we are going through has made this possible. Countries have adjusted so immigrants often can come stay and work under the same conditions as the locals. In this research essay I have chosen to do deeper research on a few aspects of migration. These aspects are globalisation, adjustment, interaction in groups (how well the Swedish people are met by the English people) and how all these factors have affected their happiness in the new country. In general I wanted to know how people dealt with their new life after they migrated. We all know it's easier to practically migrate... (More)
This research is about Swedish people migrating to England. People are migrating more than ever before all over the world. This is because the globalisation process that we are going through has made this possible. Countries have adjusted so immigrants often can come stay and work under the same conditions as the locals. In this research essay I have chosen to do deeper research on a few aspects of migration. These aspects are globalisation, adjustment, interaction in groups (how well the Swedish people are met by the English people) and how all these factors have affected their happiness in the new country. In general I wanted to know how people dealt with their new life after they migrated. We all know it's easier to practically migrate today but has that really affected the difficulties and feelings people feel after migrating. I also wanted to know if these aspects are linked together. Does the globalisation process really affect people feelings and problems after migrating? Does the adjustment affect how well people interact in groups? Or does how well people interact in groups affect how well people will adjust? I used a study made by Ericsson in 1984 to compare the results. It was interesting to see if the results he got were similar to mine. I also did a lot of background research about migration so I could analyse my results. Because I wanted to know more about people feelings about migration I used open interviews. The results of my interviews are very similar to the theories already written about migration even though a few new aspects were found. Key words: Migration Culture Globalisation, Adjustment Interaction (Less)
