Abstract [en]

Results from a research project conducted among 1000 secondary school students inSweden are used for discussing superordinate national identity as a means for immigrantsintegration into democratic politics and the challenges this may present for social scienceeducation. The theoretical point of departure is taken within social identity theory, with emphasison its findings concerning relationships between superordinate and subgroup identities. It issuggested that a superordinate national identity perceived as inclusive, by immigrants and thenative population, would be conducive to integration into democratic nation-states. Such statesare seen as the dominant organizational form for democratic politics in the foreseeable future. It isargued that command of the dominant language of society is most important of the inclusivecriteria. Other such criteria are respect of the state's political institutions and feelings of belongingto the country where you live. The argument is supported by data, showing a majority ofsecondary school students of self-identified 'Swedish' or non-'Swedish' backgrounds in favourof inclusive criteria for a 'Swedish' national identity
