Abstract [en]

The objective of this article is to analyze how women who have been victims of intimate partner violence (IPV) position themselves in relation to the image of the “ideal victim” and how gender is constructed in that positioning. There is a need for a gender analysis framework to understand how various forms of femininity are constructed and how narratives linked to this can either maintain a woman in an abusive relationship or encourage her to leave. Christie’s theory of the “ideal victim” and Connell’s gender theory are applied in this study, in which the narratives of 14 female IPV victims in Sweden are analyzed using a narrative method. Three strings of narratives, representing different forms of femininity, are revealed in the material. The master narrative of the ideal victim reveals a form of femininity that describes women as inferior in relation to men. In the alternative narrative, the narrator positions herself as inferior in relation to the offender but discusses resistance. She describes herself as a caring mother who risks a great deal to protect her children. In the counter-narrative, the narrator positions herself as strong and independent in relation to the offender and as a strong and caring mother. The positioning of different narrators may shift depending on the duration of the relationship and the type of violence. The narrator may also take different positions during different phases of the story. However, the dominant narrative among the narrators is the story of the caring mother, which may have several functions and can partially be understood as a sign of the strong discourse of motherhood in society. The study contributes to a more profound understanding of the complexity related to women’s own positioning and reveals that awareness is required when attempting to understand the narratives and behavior of abused women.

Abstract [en]

This study aims to map, locate and make visible the everyday experiences of newly arrived immigrants in government-sponsored integration activities and to trace how these experiences are linked to changes in policy. The study pays particular attention to the dynamic nature of integration and draws links between personal, organisational and policy domains while analysing shifting integration policies from the standpoint of immigrants. Swedish integration policy has undergone vast changes during recent years as the government implements one of the largest changes in Swedish history, beginning in 2010. With this came an emphasis on employment and workfare over welfare. Consequently, the rhetoric of integration in Sweden also changed from what in municipalities was called an introduction to a sense of establishment. By examining the subjective views of immigrants, we discuss the lived experiences of individuals who are subjected to and employed in different occupations due to various integration regimes.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to explore the interconnection between lived biographies and changing integration policies through migrant narratives on institutional support and labor market experiences. The approach applied in this study allows us to pay particular attention to the dynamic character of integration and to make links between personal, organizational and policy domains, analyzing the shifted integration regimes from the standpoint of migrants. The Swedish politics of integration has during the last year’s undergone vast changes and in 2010, the largest change in the Swedish history of integration policies was performed (etableringsreformen) which meant an increasingly emphasized focus on employment and workfare before welfare and the responsibility for new migrants was transferred from the municipalities to the employment service. As a consequence the rhetoric of integration in Sweden also changed, from what was in municipalities talked about as introduction, to what is now talked about as reception and establishment. By combining immigrants’ subjective views and evaluations with the trajectories of their work biographies, we will discuss changing integration regimes as ‘lived experiences’ of individuals who are subjected to and employed in different occupations that the different integration regimes produces.
