Migration som livsstil – en bok om den Spaniensvenska diasporan | New book out now: The Guide to Spanish-Sweden

Hur blir de svenska migranterna i södra Spanien en livsstilsdiaspora?
Huvudaktören i denna bok är de stora nordiska sociala föreningarna i södra Spanien och de verksamheter de utvecklar för att främja svenskarnas sammanhållning. Studien visar att föreningarna går i spetsen för en diasporisk mobilisering av en svensk gemenskap. Detta görs genom att erbjuda de svenska migranterna sociala arenor, innehållsrika aktiviteter och service av olika slag. Föreningarna kan på så sätt underlätta migranternas förverkligande av sina livsstilsprojekt samtidigt som de också snitslar en väg in i Spaniensverige. Boken handlar om hur diasporagemenskap görs genom en mobilisering kring livsstilsprojektet där ålder, klass och transnationalitet är viktiga ingredienser. … More Migration som livsstil – en bok om den Spaniensvenska diasporan | New book out now: The Guide to Spanish-Sweden
