The main purpose of this study is to compare two immigrant groups, those with a swedish an academic degree and those without. We want to study their opinion about integration in relation to education, work and social network. Eight people took part of this study, all with different ages.
Do immigrants with a swedish academic degree have a different opinion about education when it comes to integration then the immigrants with no swedish academic degree? Have the two groups a different point of view when it comes to work? And do the two groups consider that their social network have an effect on the integration, if so then how?
In order to answer these questions we used a qualitative study. The method consisted of eight deep interviews that took place in different places, such as schools and cafeterias. To analyze our interviews we choose to use three theories; the theory of social stigma written by Goffman (1973), the theory of stigmatization written by Becker (1963) and the theory of social identity written by Nilsson (1996). Our results showed that both of the groups that we were studying had the same opinion about education, work and social network when it comes to integration. The only difference is that the educated immigrants had a higher status in the society while those without an education had to struggle to find work and their chances were strictly limited. However they both share the same opinion. (Less)
