Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna uppsats är att utifrån en teoretisk kunskap om ungdomars attityder till rasism, främlingsfientlighet och invandring utföra en studie som i praktiken undersöker ungdomars attityder, i årskurs 6 till 9, till invandring och invandrare. En enkätundersökning genomfördes som omfattade 83 elever fördelade på fyra klasser, en i varje årskurs. Undersökningen utfördes på en högstadieskola i en kommun med drygt 9000 invånare i västra Sverige. Enkäten bestod av 10 slutna frågor samt 2 delvis öppna, där eleverna fick möjlighet att motivera sina svar. Resultatet visar att flickor är mer toleranta än pojkar och att elever i årskurs 7 är mer toleranta än sina äldre kamrater. Den högsta andelen intoleranta elever finns i årskurs 9. Till denna tendens kan inte de tillfrågade ur årskurs 6 inräknas då en stor andel av dem anger att de är osäkra till frågeställningen i flera fall. Bland elevernas egna kommentarer visar någon enstaka elev hög intolerans när denne jämställer ett mångkulturellt samhälle med våldtäkter. Denna attityd är dock inte representativ i någon mening, då en sammanfattande värdering av resultatet visar hög tolerans för nästan samtliga av de tillfrågade eleverna.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is that from a theoretic knowledge of young people’s attitudes towards racism, xenophobia and immigration carry out a study that in practice investigates young people’s attitudes, in the sixth to ninth grade, towards immigration and immigrants. A survey was carried out that included 83 pupils divided in four school classes, one in every grade. The survey was carried out at a grammar school in a municipality with more than 9000 inhabitants located in the west part of Sweden. The survey contained 10 secluded questions and 2 partly open questions, where the pupils had the possibility to justify their answers. The results shows that girls are more tolerant than boys and that pupils in the seventh grade are more tolerant than their older friends. The highest share of intolerant pupils occurs in grade nine. It’s not possible to include those asked from the sixth grade into this tendency because of the high percentage share that answers “don’t know”. Among the pupils own comments there are very few that shows intolerance to a great extent and one pupil writes that a multicultural society equals rapes. This attitude is not by far representative since a summery of valuations in the survey shows that almost every of those asked are tolerant to a high extent.
