Abstract [en]

This thesis aims to explore the concept of self-perceived integration by testing assumptions and by introducing new aspect of integration and examining the relations between them. Through interviews with eight persons of different backgrounds, born outside of Europe, who have immigrated to Sweden, it is shown that employment, previously assumed to be of the highest importance for integration, will only lead to further integration if it also provides certain variables. These variables are skills in Swedish, providing a sense of belonging and understanding of the Swedish culture. However, these individuals attest to that unless the individual is motivated enough, and there is mutual respect between the immigrated culture and the Swedish culture, no integration will be possible at all.
