Sammanfattning

Through a narrative approach, focusing on ethnicity-related identity content, the purpose of this study was to yield valuable insights into contemporary Swedish society and the personal experiences of young people in Sweden today. 95 participants (87% women, mean age 19.62) wrote down narratives where they shared their ethnicity-related experiences. Through thematic analysis, we found six salient themes: experience of prejudice or discrimination, experience of general difference, experience of being ‘another kind of Swede’, experience of distancing to culture or ethnicity, experience of being in-between cultures or ethnicities, and experiences of cultural ideologies. Although Sweden is viewed as one of the most well-integrated countries in the world, the results indicate that this may not always correspond with the youth’s own lived experiences. The themes found reflect complex and multicultural identities as well as issues of otherness and segregation, which may play an important part in young people’s identity formation.
