Abstract
Globalization has lead to the situation that all countries in this or that way become affective by migratory movements. In year 2008 stream immigration to Sweden reached its record levels, with more than 100,000 people entering the country (Segregation 'widespread' for Swedish immigrants 2008).

Globalization has lead to the situation that all countries in this or that way become affective by migratory movements. In year 2008 stream immigration to Sweden reached its record levels, with more than 100,000 people entering the country (Segregation 'widespread' for Swedish immigrants 2008). Although known to provide multiple benefits, such as new life opportunities, migration may also bring challenges and even problems, both for the host society and for the immigrants themselves, especially when it comes to dealing with multiplicity of cultures and identities. But what happens to migrants when they arrive in the country of destination? Much of the research that have been done on the topic stick to the point that after their arrival the groups start living highly segregated and disperse over time (Peach, 1996). Hence, immigrants, arriving in the country, prefer living in certain neighborhoods, and ethnic communities that contain immigrant grandparents, first generation parents, and their second generation children. Though when comparing those generations, one could find that they all experience the country in different ways.
This paper seeks to explore these issues within the case of metropolitan area of Southern Sweden, Malmö through lens of human geography. Particular focus will be made on the residents of Iranian descent. The research is made in several steps: secondary data research with elements of GIS analysis and research conducted on primary data (qualitative interviews, containing semi-structured interviews and expert interview and statistical data collected by the questionnaire method).
