Living in a “ghetto”: the problem of segregation

Let’s start with a definition. Ethnic segregation: people with similar ethnic backgrounds live in the same areas to a greater extent than they would if they were randomly distributed in the country. A method for measuring ethnic segregation is to compare the number of neighbors with the same ethnic background with what that number would have been if people had been distributed randomly in the country. In 2008, 60% of native Swedes lived in areas where the majority of the population was also Swedish, and 20% lived in areas that were virtually...

Global crisis and economic inequality in Sweden

The economic global crisis affected Sweden in a softer way than other European countries, but not excluding some necessary strong economic adjustment, such as a reduction of public expenditures and social transfers. In October 2013, the Swedish Labor Force Survey reported the unemployment rate at 7.3%, and at 18.9% for those ages 15 to 24. Approximately 63% of immigrants were employed compared to 76% of the native-born population. This 13 percentage-point gap is significantly greater than the OECD average of about 3 percentage points. While...

Do you think the EU should do anything to restrict the number of other EU-citizens coming to Sweden to beg? 2.Do you think that the EU should be able to force countries to accept refugees?...

Caroline ”The” Hammar.

  Dance For Love is a movement, it is a non-politically affiliated body of individuals working towards a world wherein humanity comes first. We are a group but we are also very different people working for a common goal. Today we’re going to take a look at one of our recent addition to the team: Caroline Hammar. Carro and I met a few hours before our weekly DFL meetings at a local cafè/bookstore. I skipped gleefully in as Carro stumbles upon a low bench, we took our seats next to the window and proceeded in ordering a beverage of choice....

Maybe. But is it an accurate definition of how we perceive Home? I doubt that. There is NO WAY I could ever truly understand what Home is...

Bakom kulisserna på Dance For Love-kontoret i Stockholm

Såhär ser det ut på vårt temporära kontor där alla vi som jobbar med att arrangera Dance For Love Stockholm möts varje måndag.

A summary of Swedish immigration

 A summary of Swedish immigration     After the Second World War, Swedish demographic profile changed substantially due to immigration of foreign workers, especially from Finland and Southern Europe. They received the same wages and rights of the Swedes, seen as fresh “help” for the developing industrial economy, who was suffering from a lack of work force. After the 1973 oil crisis and global recession, the government blocked labor migration from non-Nordic countries, accepting primarily asylum’s seekers on humanitarian grounds (their...
