The "Others" in Sweden. Neoliberal Policies and the Politics of "Race" in Education
Mulinari, Diana; Neergaard, Anders
Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, v8 n2 p130-164 Dec 2010
Migration and neo-liberal restructuring are two of the most discussed phenomena with regard to globalisation. In this article, the authors have sought links between these processes in a Swedish context and the experiences of racialised as they spoke about schooling and the role of parents in their educational situation. The aim of the article is to explore school narratives evolving from young pupils of migrant background. The authors' analytical focus lies on the impact process of racialisation has on the school experience of Swedish citizens of migrant background. Theoretically, this study is inspired by the at times conflictual debates between Marxism and postcolonial theory; aiming at creating bridges between these critical currents of thought. Methodologically, the study is a qualitative case study of four Swedish schools. (Contains 1 table and 3 footnotes.)
