Abstract
This thesis focuses on the lived experiences of ethnic minority women in an analysis of employment and citizenship in a Danish context. The empirical material consists of six semi-structured qualitative interviews. These are analysed using feminist and postcolonial theories of citizenship and nation. The thesis has two focal points.

This thesis focuses on the lived experiences of ethnic minority women in an analysis of employment and citizenship in a Danish context. The empirical material consists of six semi-structured qualitative interviews. These are analysed using feminist and postcolonial theories of citizenship and nation. The thesis has two focal points. Firstly, the analysis covers how the informants relate to norms of economic self-reliance, reciprocity and gender equality. Norms that are often considered central to the conception of the Danish welfare state. Secondly, the analysis covers experiences of gendered and racialized discrimination and marginalization in relation to employment. The thesis concludes that the informants identify with the norms related to employment and participate in employment as a citizenship practice. The informants' articulations of relations to citizenship norms are also read as negotiations of belonging to the nation-state. At the same time their positions in the labour market are revealed as marginalized, and they encounter gendered and racialized discrimination and marginalization. On this basis, the thesis argues, that the informants in different ways can be regarded as both included in and excluded from citizenship. (Less)
