Short description

In recent years, Sweden has received large numbers of migrants and refugees and majority of them are men. This has caused significant public debates, as in the public eyes, the typical migrant is a young, single man and the growing number of male migrants has been one of most vivid concern of the European societies. Therefore, the main aim of the project is to strengthen communication of newest research findings to the public and increase the level of nuanced knowledge on masculinities, gender attitudes and living conditions of all male migrants in Sweden.

The project aims to present the findings of the ongoing ethnographic research project on single migrant men in the EU entitled "Transnational bachelors. An ethnography about singleness among migrated men in the European Union" conducted between 2019 and 2023 in Sweden and Italy.
