Although their definitions differ from each other our findings showed that their views of integration can be summarized into four themes: Building of interethnic relationships, Cultural exchange, Versatile change and engagement and finally Equality. Our second question was how they work with integration. To analyze their integrational activities we used Jose Alberto Diaz different dimensions of integration. We found that the organizations work towards structural -, social -, political - and communicative integration. We also used T.H Marshall and Thomas Bottomore’s citizenship theory. We found that the organizations work to fulfil substantial rights. Primarily they work for social rights, but also civil - and political rights. Finally we put the organizations’ cultural activities in an integrational context.
Key words: integration, swedish-somalian organizations, social work, immigration, citizenship. (Less)
