Research within this stream includes the study of migration and ethnic relations in welfare institutions with particular focus on health and education. Central questions are how public services are organized and distributed to an ethnically diverse population, the implementation of social rights and provisions and how clients and customers are shaped materially and discursively in these processes. The impact of racialization and social exclusion on migrants´ health and education is also crucial for this stream. The studies adopt an intersectional approach and examine how ethnicity, gender and other categories of difference are mutually constitutive and thus expand the field, previously mainly studied through the lens of gender research.
The Stream is led by Associate Professor Anna Bredström.
