Emerging local solidarities? Local responses to migration to non-urban communities in the south of Sweden
Summary, in English
In this paper, we explore the everyday encounters, responses and forms of organising developed by arriving migrants and locals in the semi-rural areas of Scania, Sweden. In this region, far right parties have presented hostile ideas towards migration long before these issues were introduced in the political discourse at a national level. But there have also been local responses of solidarity, especially since international migration has become present at an everyday level. We therefore aim to explore the everyday labour of solidarity, in a context of dispersal of solidarity – how new forms of organisation emerge in small cities and non-urban areas. We also explore limits to solidarity and more hostile responses that develop in these areas.
