Integration and rural space in Sweden: a three-dimensional approach

2023 (English)In: New methods and theory on immigrant integration: Insights from Remote and Pheripheral Areas / [ed] Daniel Rauhut, Cheltenham; Northampton: Edward Elgar Publishing, 2023, p. 33-50Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This chapter discusses the three-fold model of rural space. Its three dimensions of integration are discussed to examine how integration takes shape and works within diverse layers of society: spatial practice or perceived material space (distance, physical context, population density, institutions, rules and regulations); representations of space or conceived or imagined space (how the integration of migrants in rural areas is expressed in e.g. public documents or media); and spaces of representation or lived space (how integration is practiced in lived life). Also, the coherence between the dimensions is of interest, in terms of how they might connect or disconnect. This analysis is based on a Swedish case of refugee migration to rural areas. Based on the premise that integration is a multidimensional process, this chapter presents a theoretical approach with the capacity to both separate and bring the dimensions together. The empirical material consists of policy documents, official reports and qualitative interviews. The added value of this chapter is how policy formulation and implementation interact with representations and lived life, and how these dimensions find expression and interact.
