Inequalities and migration: Challenges for the Swedish welfare state

Abstract [en]

Sweden is often pictured as a country with a strong welfare system and low levels of inequality. But it is also described as a country that has undergone fundamental restructurings of its welfare system since the 1990s, and with inequality gaps that are among the fastest growing in Europe. This development is strikingly visible among people with a migration background. The question is how this might be understood. Inequalities and migration set focus on ongoing developments and debates about the Swedish welfare system in relation to migration. It introduces the international reader to ongoing developments of inequalities and migration in Sweden in broad historical and international perspectives. The book also offers in-depth insights to how the dynamics of growing inequality unfolds in regard to a range of phenomena and areas of intervention, including the role of civil society. The selected case studies focus on inequalities and hierarchies with regard to both various forms of cross-border mobility and the increased diversification of Swedish society. The book fills a gap when it comes to English language course literature about contemporary debates regarding social policy and social work in relation to migration in Sweden. At the same time it is well suited for a broader range of readers, including policy makers and practitioners outside of Sweden.
