Sammanfattning

Higher education (HE) institutions are often thought to rejuvenate and replenish local labor markets with recent graduates, especially in rural locales (Hansen, 2007). However, individuals who have completed HE generally migrate from less populated areas to urban regions (HSV, 2011). While some student groups may stay in the area of their alma mater, others return home or to other areas. Research on HE graduate migration and employment has often been linked to regional economics, labor markets, and educational pathways. Individual and familial demographics and relationships have also been key elements of analysis to understand patterns of HE graduate migration. Background factors such as gender, social class, and home region have a role in forming students’ perceptions of employment opportunities and ultimately have a role in their employment and migratory decisions (Williams, 2009). The aim of this paper is to identify how social space is conceived in current research on HE graduate migration in Sweden. Literature on HE graduate employment and migration is examined from Lefebrvre’s (1991) three concepts of social space. Social space refers to people and their relationships, including relationships of power (Moss, 2006). Hansen, H. K. (2007).
