Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to explore the integration of non-European elderly migrants in Sweden with focus on everyday-life experiences. The study has an explorative design attempting at problematizing the integration of this group and finding new aspects that previous research has not addressed. A qualitative method with semi-structured interviews with four non-European elderly migrants has been carried out. The theories utilized for analyzing the research material are social integration theory and social exclusion theory. This study shows that non-European elderly migrants face linguistic and cultural barriers in their social integration and when seeking social support. They experienced lack of support in their integration into the everyday life of the society, risking of being lonely, isolated and marginalized. Late-in-life migrants appeared to be the most vulnerable.
