Abstract [en]

Comics about migration is an expanding phenomenon (Marie & Ollivier, 2013:6). One example of this is the Swedish Comics album Vi skall ses igen, Sanam, i.e. We shall see each other again, Sanam. This album was part of a campaign in Swedish schools during 2013 and 2014, called Hej Sverige!, Hello Sweden!. The campaign was organized by a non governmental organization called Friends, in cooperation with UNHCR, United Nations refugee agency, and the aim of the campaign was to expand knowledge about exclusion, change negative attitudes among young people in Sweden towards immigrants and to work against xenophobia and bullying. Almost 2/3 of all the secondary schools in Sweden responded positively to this optional campaign, and about 66000 pupils have read the album.
