Abstract (Swedish)
Since June 2012 to September 2016, it is estimated that about 300 people has been travelling from Sweden to the conflict in Syria and Iraq. At the same time, and the years leading up to 2012 and after, segregation in the second and third-biggest cities in Sweden- Gothenburg and Malmo could be seen according to data. This thesis examines the relationship between travellers and the circumstances of ethnic residential segregation in variables of education, employment and social coherence. These variables are included as important aspects of community wellbeing according to the theory of residential segregation. The definition of residential segregation that the thesis is built upon is used by the researchers Lina Aldén & Mats Hammarstedt and... (More)
Since June 2012 to September 2016, it is estimated that about 300 people has been travelling from Sweden to the conflict in Syria and Iraq. At the same time, and the years leading up to 2012 and after, segregation in the second and third-biggest cities in Sweden- Gothenburg and Malmo could be seen according to data. This thesis examines the relationship between travellers and the circumstances of ethnic residential segregation in variables of education, employment and social coherence. These variables are included as important aspects of community wellbeing according to the theory of residential segregation. The definition of residential segregation that the thesis is built upon is used by the researchers Lina Aldén & Mats Hammarstedt and refers to ethnic segregation as connected with both demographic and socioeconomic aspects of the community. The thesis concludes that there is a link between the number of foreign fighters that travelled from Sweden to join jihadi Salafist movements and residential segregation. The study also concludes that the research in this subject needs further investigation and that data about the circumstances needs to be more comprehensive for this to happen. (Less)
