Abstract [en]

r

This study has focused on university students' perceptions and experiences of ethnic

discrimination that occurs within university environments. The ethnic discrimination consists

of categorizations based on ethnicity, nationality, cultural background and so forth. The study

used qualitative method by conducting eight semi-structured interviews with the focus group

of individuals between the ages 20 - 37 years. The result of the collected data illustrated that

ethnic discrimination was directed towards a specific group, where the common denominator

is that concerned individuals was evaluated, seen as "non – Swedish”. Normative beliefs

about swedishness and immigrant status are seen as two different categorizations of groups

that have formed a hidden ground of discrimination within the university environment. A

characteristic feature of the discrimination structure and duration is its denial attitude in

relation to the existence of discrimination. These attitudes are reflected in agencies,

institutions and the responsible individuals who effectively treat individuals differently based

on their ethnicity. The ethnic discrimination is based on attribution of distinctive features

correlated with the individual characteristics that exist in every human being ignored. This

disadvantage contributes to certain groups of individuals per systematics, is in a subordinate

position regarding participation, influence and power. The central role of understanding ethnic

discrimination and its structure and composition, is to analyze the exercise of power within

the society and the institutions.
