Abstract (Swedish)
The following study aims to examine the structuring functions of migration in relation to globalization, and how these affect the subject.

The following study aims to examine the structuring functions of migration in relation to globalization, and how these affect the subject. Through interviewing six persons with the experience of migration and living without documents in Malmö, I have analysed the interviewees’ narratives in relation to a global context. This is a qualitative study produced through a narrative method, with the intention of facilitating the comprehension of the presented experiences and with a view to presenting and interpreting the interviewees’ fragmentized experience in a globalized world. The study concludes by suggesting that the process of migration tends to affect the subject through ‘de subjectifying’ them as well as forcing them into a fixed position in a globalized ‘world disorder’. It also emphasizes that, through being simultaneously unwelcome and unavoidable, the narratives reflect the deconstructed nation’s relationship to globalization. Finally, I stress that the position presented by the narratives seems to replicate the erosion of state sovereignty through globalization’, while I also see the possibility of resistance to such a structured order.
