    The intellectual justification of sovereign power: representations of the Kurds in Turkish scholarship2024Ingår i: Critical Policy Studies, ISSN 1946-0171, E-ISSN 1946-018XArtikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Through scrutiny of academic research in the context of ethnic conflict, the present article advances the agenda of critical policy studies. To that end, it conducts a case study of representations of the Kurds in Turkish scholarship and aims to highlight a nexus between nationalism, state policy, and scholarship. Two arguments are advanced herein. First, Turkish scholars who adhere to the dominant nationalist ideology in Turkey represent the Kurds in accordance with the dictates of this ideology and justify sovereign power in the maintenance of relations of ethnic domination and subordination. Second, while Turkey no longer denies the physical existence of the Kurds, the state and Turkish scholars persist in withholding recognition of Kurdish identity. The scholars in question do so under pretenses of scientific objectivity, political universalism, and a commitment to peace. However, the lingering of the policy of denial and the justification of it constitute a fundamental hurdle to a peaceful resolution of the Kurdish issue. A critical approach to state policy and scholarship not only makes it possible to debunk pretenses of scientific objectivity and political universalism, but may also be more conducive to scholarly autonomy and commitment to peace in societies marked by ethnic conflict.

    The worker branch in Yorkshire as a way of organising Polish migrants: exploring the process of carving out diasporic spaces within the trade union structure2020Ingår i: Journal of ethnic and migration studies, ISSN 1369-183X, E-ISSN 1469-9451, Vol. 46, nr 15, s. 3406-3421Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    While post-2004 Polish labour migration to the UK was underpinned by diasporic spaces instrumental in facilitating social and labour market adjustments, the institutions of the host society such as trade unions also sought to establish links with migrants. The analysis of interactions between UK unions and EU migrants focused on organising strategies and specific provisions such as English language learning. However, the discussion tended to ignore the impacts of diasporic influences, from ethnicity and native languages of migrants to the outcomes of migrant worker organising. Drawing on ethnographic and qualitative data, this paper discusses how Polishness, in its ethnic, historic and linguistic manifestations, has affected the internal dynamics of a migrant worker organisation created by a major UK trade union. The explicit acknowledgement of diasporic particularities of post-2004 Polish migrants not only enabled labour organising activities but also shaped the migrant worker organisation from within. The strength of diasporic influences on one hand and the chosen form of union organising on the other created conditions for the development of diasporic spaces within the institution of the host society.

    The drowning-refugee effect: media salience and xenophobic attitudes2017Ingår i: Applied Economics Letters, ISSN 1350-4851, E-ISSN 1466-4291, Vol. 24, nr 16, s. 1167-1172Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    We study whether salient media coverage of refugees drowning in the Mediterranean affects individual xenophobic attitudes. We combine a randomized survey experiment - a variant of the classic trolley dilemma' - that implicitly elicits individual attitudes towards foreigners, with variation in interview timing, and find that such issue salience significantly decreases xenophobic attitudes by 2.2 percentage points. Our results thus support the idea that exposure to news describing immigrants as victims (instead of a threat) can significantly affect public opinion and mitigate bias against immigrants.

    Digital ethnicity affordances: from a liability to an asset in immigrant entrepreneurship2023Ingår i: International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behaviour & Research, ISSN 1355-2554, E-ISSN 1758-6534Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    PurposeThis paper aims to understand how immigrant entrepreneurs use digital opportunities to overcome the liability of newness and foreignness and how an immigrant's ethnicity can be digitally performed as an asset in business.Design/methodology/approachThe study adopts an inductive multiple case study approach using social media content. The data consist of over 3,500 posts, images and screenshots from Facebook, Instagram and the webpages of seven successful Vietnamese restaurants in Sweden. Grounded content analysis was conducted using NVivo.FindingsThe findings suggest that digitalising ethnic artifacts can mediate and facilitate three digital performances that together can turn ethnicity from a liability to an asset: (i) preserving performance through digital ethnicising, (ii) embracing performance through digital generativitising and (iii) appropriating performance through digital fusionising. The results support the introduction of a conceptual framework depicting the interwoven duality of horizontal and vertical boundary blurring, in which the former takes place between the offline and online spaces of immigrant businesses, and the latter occurs between the home and host country attachment of the immigrant businesses.Originality/valueThis study responds to calls for understanding how immigrant entrepreneurs can overcome the liability of foreignness. It offers a fresh look at ethnicity, which has been seen in a negative light in the field of immigrant entrepreneurship. This study illuminates that ethnicity can be used as a resource in immigrant entrepreneurship, specifically through the use of digital artifacts and digital platforms.

    Knocking on the Doors of Integration: Swedish Integration Policy and the Production of a National Space2020Ingår i: Journal of International Migration and Integration, ISSN 1488-3473, E-ISSN 1874-6365, Vol. 21, nr 3, s. 861-877Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article contributes to theoretical discussions on how immigrant integration is produced as a part of redefining national policy to local everyday practice, and what this tells us about the society in which the policy is formed. Integration is from this perspective a way to understand imagined social communities, how they are produced, who is considered to belong, and who is not. Document analysis and interviews with immigrants, local politicians, and officials in small- and medium-sized Swedish towns give insights into both what taken-for-granted assumptions the integration policy builds on and reproduces, and what consequences the integration policy have for the persons the policy is intended for. It is shown that the Swedish integration policy is itself a part of the production of a Swedish space as a container with closed doors, where immigrants are not given equal access and possibilities. This is created by putting sameness and difference at the core of the integration policy and by describing integration as an act of entering the Swedish space.

    Waiting or dating? Migrant bachelors in the European borderscapes2023Ingår i: Norma, ISSN 1890-2138, E-ISSN 1890-2146, Vol. 18, nr 4, s. 343-359Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The article presents results from an interview study on migrant bachelors and discusses differences between Bangladeshi migrants in Italy and Syrian migrants in Sweden, in how they present as singles. Interviewees articulate a simplified distinction between singlehood in Europe and singlehood in Bangladesh or Syria. Singlehood has been theorized as wavering between a period of waiting and a lifestyle with its own inherent value. In our sample, while Bangladeshis describe bachelorhood as a period of waiting, distancing themselves from what they see as European singlehood, Syrians tend to embrace singlehood as inherently valuable and prefer a ‘European way’ of being single. We argue that this difference between the groups is connected not primarily to national or regional cultures, but to how racialized borders shape the two groups in Europe, as well as to the role of class positionalities in determining attitudes toward singlehood.

    The emergence and development of the world’s first colourblind nation2023Ingår i: Race in Sweden: Racism and antiracism in the world’s first “colourblind” nation / [ed] Tobias Hübinette; Catrin Lundström; Peter Wikström, Abingdon: Routledge, 2023, s. 33-65Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter chronicles how Sweden emerged as the world’s most colourblind state formation by examining the Swedish critique of the concept of race, which ultimately led to the tabooisation and public elimination of the very word itself. The chapter follows three themes – namely, the Swedish critique of race and how it is steeped in a race biological understanding of the term, the construction of Swedish values and in the end of Swedishness itself as being the same as antiracist values and Sweden’s struggle to eliminate the word race also outside of its borders in relation to, for example, the UN and the EU. The chapter concludes that the Swedish colourblind project has in the end been about breaking with the old Swedish racial thinking that prevailed in Sweden during the first half of the 1900s. The country’s colourblind antiracist ideology has both been concerned with Sweden’s place in the world and in particular in relation to the non-Western world and with cleansing Sweden and the Swedes from all vestiges of racial thinking.

    White melancholia: A historicised analysis of hegemonic whiteness in Sweden2023Ingår i: The Routledge International Handbook of New Critical Race and Whiteness Studies / [ed] Rikke Andreassen, Catrin Lundström, Suvi Keskinen and Shirley Anne Tate, Routledge, 2023, s. 308-320Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The chapter develops an analysis of the phenomenon of white melancholia in Sweden after the ‘refugee crisis’ in 2015. White melancholia denotes how the loss of the old homogeneous and the good anti-racist Sweden produces contradictory and complex feelings among both ‘racists’ and ‘anti-racists’. Whereas Sweden has perceived itself having accomplished something of a post-racial utopia since the 1970s, the country is now facing a new reality of superdiversity, which marks the end of two different, but interrelated, hegemonic whiteness regimes. Yet, colour-blindness is still hegemonic and issues of race and whiteness are taboo subjects. The authors regard contemporary Sweden as a white nation in crisis and diagnose Swedish whiteness as suffering from what can be conceptualised as a white melancholic state.

    Conclusion2023Ingår i: Race in Sweden: Racism and Antiracism in the World's First 'Colourblind' Nation / [ed] Tobias Hübinette, Catrin Lundström, Peter Wikström, Routledge, 2023, 1st, s. 164-165Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    In these concluding remarks, we reflect upon and envision the possible future of the notion of race in Sweden. We foresee a continued emergence of the new multiracial and super-diverse Sweden. Following this, the maintenance and defence of the colourblind hegemony of contemporary public life in Sweden must inevitably become more and more challenging as inequalities continue to grow and segregation structured by race eventually becomes impossible to ignore. Thus, while the colourblind fantasy of post-1968 Sweden lives on, and provides cover for the emergence of an increasingly emboldened far right, we suggest that things must change. We, therefore, express our hope that coming generations of Swedes will break with the current white melancholy period. Instead, we hope that tomorrow’s Swedish antiracists, white and non-white alike, will be both more willing and more capable to engage with the concept of race, the language of race and the lived reality of race in a more substantial and critical way.

    Introduction2023Ingår i: Race in Sweden: Racism and antiracism in the world’s first “colourblind” nation / [ed] Tobias Hübinette, Peter Wikström, Catrin Lundström, Abingdon: Routledge, 2023, s. 1-11Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Sweden has a paradoxical history when it comes to race, as a term, as a concept and as a lived reality. In this introduction, we provide a short background on the life of the concept of race in Swedish culture and language within the last century. In addition, we introduce some key concepts and outline the aim and central arguments of the book. From its role as a pioneering nation in race science in the earlier parts of the 20th century, Sweden was equally as pioneering in the latter parts in deracialising public life and discourse, embracing a hegemonic, normative colourblindness. In today’s Sweden, neither conservatives nor progressives, and neither xenophobes nor antiracists can talk about race and hope to be taken seriously. However, things may be in the process of changing, in a situation of escalating tensions between an increasingly superdiversified Swedish population and the emergence of a revitalised far right. In the introduction, we outline six empirically focused chapters which constitute analyses and case studies of both historical and contemporary materials aiming to shed light on some of the most important and pernicious articulations of Swedish colourblindness in a time when this doctrine is becoming increasingly untenable.

    Sveriges avrasifiering: Uppfattningar om ras och rasism under efterkrigstiden2023Samlingsverk (redaktörskap) (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [sv]

    Sveriges avrasifiering är en forskningsantologi som berör frågor om ras, rasism, antirasism och vithet i ett svenskt efterkrigstida och samtida sammanhang. Antologin samlar 13 studier av författare från olika fält som sammantaget utforskar hur begreppet ras gradvis avvecklades och blev tabu i Sverige efter 1945, och hur en specifikt svensk form av antirasism i stället kom att bli normerande.

    Antologins bidrag kan beskrivas som fallstudier, vilka berör nyckelpersoner, samhällsdebatter, tankefigurer, institutioner, migration och marknadsföring, utifrån material från arkiv, dagspress, forskningsintervjuer, sociala medier med mera. Genom denna empiriska och metodologiska bredd blir antologin som helhet ett tvärsnitt som belyser hur Sverige utvecklades från att vara en rasbiologisk pionjär till att bli världens mest utpräglat ”färgblinda” land.

    Boken är redigerad av Tobias Hübinette och Peter Wikström, med bidrag författade av Martin Ericsson, Johan Samuelsson, Ludwig Schmitz, Emma Severinsson, Mattias Tydén, Mats Wickström, David Assadkhan, Karin Idevall Hagren, Catrin Lundström, Sayaka Osanami Törngren och Jeff Werner.

    The Swedish N-issue, Swedish N’s and white transracial identifications2023Ingår i: Race in Sweden: Racism and antiracism in the world’s first “colourblind” nation / [ed] Tobias Hübinette, Catrin Lundström & Peter Wikström, Abingdon: Routledge, 2023, s. 66-92Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter presents an investigation of a particular discursive figure, one of conceptualising white Swedes as “Swedish Negroes” and problems affecting white Swedes as “Swedish Negro issues”. This discursive figure emerged in the post-war period and continued to make itself heard of well into the 1970s. This investigation comprises a kind of case study of what we call the “Swedish N-word” (neger – “Negro”). However, by extension, this is also a case study of incipient Swedish antiracism in the guise of white Swedish identifications with African Americans and with blackness in general. Throughout the period when the figure occurred most often, white Swedish women and white Swedish workers, and later on many other white Swedish groups such as youth subcultures, people living on the countryside and so on, claimed that they suffered the Swedish “Negro problem” and consequently that they were the “Swedish Negroes”. This white Swedish antiracist identification with blackness – or, as it may also be construed, appropriation of the ethos of black struggle – is theoretically articulated through the concept of transraciality. We argue that white Swedes identified so strongly with African Americans at least in part out of a desire to escape from a whiteness tainted by Nazism and colonialism after the Holocaust and during the era of decolonisation.

    Kinship and Community Networks2019Ingår i: Handbook of the Politics of Labour, Work and Employment / [ed] Gregor Gall, Edward Elgar Publishing, 2019, s. 418-434Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter discusses the nature and significance of kinship and community networks for the nature, structure and dynamics of labour, work and employment. It uses the lens of migration to explore these issues. Migration is but one of a number of arenas through which the importance of kinship and community networks to labour, work and employment dynamics can be explored. Our focus on migration reflects its historical and contemporary importance to debates around kinship and community networks. The key argument advanced in this chapter is that in the face of constrained opportunities existing in local labour markets, kinship and community networks can be used as mechanisms that may offer a means to improve the experience of migrants, on one hand, and as resources necessary to sustain diverse social activities on the other.

    Networks of Support for New Migrant Communities: Institutional Goals versus Substantive Goals2012Ingår i: Urban Studies, ISSN 0042-0980, E-ISSN 1360-063X, Vol. 49, nr 3, s. 631-647Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the role of support mechanisms for new migrant communities provided by networks of statutory, third sector and refugee community organisations. The article explores the dynamics of the relationships between support groups, with analysis located in the urban context of NorthTown. The findings point to the possibility of tension between migrant support groups where there is a perceived need to compete over resources or political influence.  Moreover, it is argued that there is a risk that institutional goals of organisational sustainability may take precedence over substantive goals of support provision. The ability of support groups to assert agency in terms of strategic responses to structural constraints on sustainability is explored. It is argued that an organising logic based on the creation of a political community within the new migrant population can prove more sustainable than contingent communities based on commonalities of language or nationality.

    A Dynamic Perspective on Homelessness: Homeless Families in Stockholm2012Ingår i: European Journal of Homelessness, ISSN 2030-2762, E-ISSN 2030-3106, Vol. 6, nr 1, s. 105-123Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article focuses on homelessness among families with children in Sweden, and particularly on the situation of homeless families in Stockholm. The objective is to contribute to the understanding of homelessness by suggesting an intersectional analysis that both includes different levels of analysis – that is, at structural, institutional and household levels – and allows gender, class and migration parameters to be taken into consideration. On the structural level, a restructured housing market in combination with a disman-tling of housing policy has raised the threshold for entering the primary housing market, especially for individuals and families with limited economic resources. In addition to the risk of being discriminated against based on ethnicity, this restructuring has appreciably raised the difficulty of entering the market on a more general level. At the institutional level, local social authorities offer solutions to homelessness that have been developed for more traditional groups of homeless people, namely, single men with alcohol or drug problems; they lack the means to change the structural conditions of the housing market or the distribution of housing, and can only expand the secondary housing market, in which people are at risk of becoming 'trapped' as the gap between the primary and secondary housing markets becomes increasingly large. On the individual/household level, a combination of single motherhood, immigra-tion and limited financial resources clearly increases the risk of homelessness and exclusion from other social arenas.

    Material Cultures, Migrations, and Identities2015Bok (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This book contributes to existing research on material culture, cultural identity and migration by providing a fresh perspective on post-socialist diasporic identity amongst Russian-speaking migrants to the United Kingdom. It evaluates the ethnographic research methods used to study material cultures, including qualitative interviews at home, sensory methods and visual research, and is structured around a series of case studies on attitudes to homemaking, food and cooking, and clothing. In sum, it analyses the ways in which Russian-speaking migrants create a sense of home and of belonging to an imagined community.

    National food, belonging, and identity among Russian-speaking migrants in the UK2017Ingår i: Identity and Nation Building in Everyday Post-Socialist Life / [ed] Abel Polese, Jeremy Morris, Emilia Pawłusz, Oleksandra Seliverstova, Routledge, 2017, s. 91-109Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter explores relationships between food practices and the sense of national belonging within the context of Russian-speaking migration to the UK. It examines how attachments to familiar and national food are articulated by UK-based Russian-speaking migrants and migrant communities in a new cultural context. The chapter discusses several culture-specific food practices that reveal complex connections between diasporic culture and the sense of Russianness in immigration. It provides an overview of current debates on diasporic identity and senses of home/belonging through food practices, followed by the analysis of the role of food within the context of Russian migration to the UK. The chapter also discusses: the specific practices surrounding bringing food from Russia; the 'exclusivity' of Russian food and its significance to migrants' Russianness; the nostalgic longing and need for food, maintained by migrants as way of connection to Russian culture; and the influences and relationships between 'Soviet', 'post-Soviet' and 'Russian' within migrants' shared mythology and cultural memory.

    Post-Soviet Russian-Speaking Migration to the UK: The Discourses of Visibility and Accountability2017Ingår i: Post-Soviet Migration and Diasporas: From Global Perspectives to Everyday Practices / [ed] Milana V. Nikolko, David Carment, Palgrave Macmillan, 2017, s. 29-45Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter discusses methodological challenges in the study of recent Russian-speaking migration to the UK and issues related to the diverse nature of the UK-based population of the Russian diaspora. Specifically, it analyses the relationships between the estimates of the Russian speakers and community-produced strategies of self-representation. These are examined through the prism of media discourses and statistical figures, in themselves contradictory and complex to analyse. This chapter argues that the complex nature of post-Soviet/Russian cultural identity and the existing media narratives in the emigration country affect ongoing processes of diasporisation and self-identification both in Russia and elsewhere and play a vital role in understanding the nature of the post-Soviet Russian-speaking diaspora abroad.

    Over recent decades scholars of home and material culture have been linking their research to ideas surrounding national and cultural identities, not least because of the changing character of social life and international migration, which has provided them with a new context. New types of communication and networking that migrant and local communities utilise in their everyday lives affect the ways in which the feeling of belonging to a homeland, and having a cultural identity, are created and maintained. The processes of displacement and permanent or temporary detachment from their homeland that migrants undertake shifted the focus of research from studying solely material objects to the studies of practices of homemaking that make a place ?home.? The emergence of transnational migration has affected the ways in which deteritorialised migrant communities and diasporas sustain their ties and networks as well as reproduce images of the homeland. As research shows, various material artefacts and home possessions which migrants keep, use, exchange–and, in a way, ?curate?–appear to play an important role in linking migrants with their ?imagined? homes and in helping them to ?repair their new identities? (Miller 2009:97). The principal focus of this article is to explore the relationship between the meanings of objects, homes, and cultural identity, using data from my research into Russian migrants[1] homes in the UK, conducted in 2006?2010 at the University of Manchester. As I discovered in my research, various objects that migrants keep in their homes are part of complex processes that involve multiple social relationships, meanings, and practices and by this constitute the overall meaning of home and a complex migrant identity. I will develop this argument by first presenting an overview of the existing literatures concerning the home and its understanding as a multidimensional space (Brednikova and Tkach 2010). I will then discuss a number of case studies, intentionally focusing on a range of ?typical? or iconic Russian home possessions which are often found in migrants? homes. The reason for my intentionally circumscribed focus on these particular objects is that they simultaneously circulate in transnational semiotic spaces (book covers, film posters, and other printed media) where they index ?Russia? and ?Russian? at the same time as they mediate complex feelings and engagements with notions of ?Russian-ness? and ?home? for migrants. At the same time, placed in the domestic space these objects lose the straightforward typicality and acquire fluid and multiple meanings. Using these examples I will look at these variations in the meanings of such home artefacts, in relation to migrant cultural identity and sense of belonging.

    Scaling down migrant homemaking: Home possessions and the embodied experience of home2023Ingår i: Handbook on Home and Migration / [ed] Paolo Boccagni, Edward Elgar Publishing, 2023, s. 377-387Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter outlines several ideas in the study of material culture, home and migration, focusing on two groups of objects. First, the category of diasporic objects is used to refer to domestic artefacts that act both as reminders and signifiers of migrants' cultural identity and heritage. While connecting migrants with their homeland, these objects also remind of one's detachment from it. Second, the category of sticky objects is deployed to describe artefacts that evoke difficult and, at times, 'dark' associations for their owners, who, however, continue keeping them, as if they got 'stuck' to them. Both groups of objects offer tools for capturing complex aspects of life at home and migration as well as feelings and emotions that accompany it. The chapter also highlights the embodied dimension of home by discussing how material objects can act as 'embodiment' of one's cultural identity and belonging as well as of difficult feelings of ambivalence and discomfort.

    Language, identity, and the body in relation to others: Sensemaking in a new migratory space2023Ingår i: Dynamics of multilingualism: Spatialised repertoires and representations in unstable times / [ed] Maria Kuteeva & Caroline Kerfoot, Palgrave Macmillan, 2023Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This study considers how linguistic and spatial repertoires are experienced and understood by English-origin adults who now reside in Sweden. These individuals come from a space where they are familiar with the social rules and language practices but have entered a new space where this is not the case. Particular focus is given to the role that lived experiences of language play in the construction of participants’ repertoires, and most importantly, how lived experiences moderate the availability and accessibility of an individual’s acquired repertoire. The study locates itself within the phenomenological tradition that draws on the idea of the intersubjective nature of perception and aims to uncover how an individual perceives and makes sense of language and identity in this context. Equally relevant, and also borrowed from phenomenology, is the notion of the ‘body image’, which is seen as being formed from the social, relational, and inter-human interactions of a subject, and importantly for this study is the idea that the body image is key in understanding current interactional practices as well as expectations of interaction and wider ideologies of communication. In order to access participants’ experiences, I draw on biographical interviews in which participants elaborate on their past and present lives. The findings show that participants consistently compare their body-in-relation-to-others that they come into contact with in the new space. In order to do this, participants construct homogenous groups of ‘Swedes’ and ‘immigrants’, who in turn become enregistered with specific ideologies of communication. Additionally, participants construct spaces of potentialities regarding how they desire for their children to embody ‘Britishness’, which is closely linked to managing their children’s linguistic repertoires, and spaces of constraint, where participants consider how the local environment restricts their ability to deploy their entire communicative repertoire.

    When colourblindness runs amok: the Swedish debate on equality data2023Ingår i: Race in Sweden: Racism and antiracism in the world’s first “colourblind” nation / [ed] Tobias Hübinette, Catrin Lundström & Peter Wikström, Abingdon: Routledge, 2023, 1st, s. 139-163Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    While the collection and analysis of equality data including racial identification is common in many parts of the world, prevailing norms of colourblindness and antiracialism prevent such practises in Sweden. This chapter presents a case study of the outrage and indignation that met a Green Party member of parliament (MP) who, in February 2019, proposed that Sweden should collect equality data comprising racial identification. We analyse a comprehensive corpus of opinion and editorial texts, as well as a sample of Twitter posts representative of the colourblind outrage directed at the Green Party MP, as well as at leftists, antiracists, identity politics and associated actors and movements. Our analysis reveals a range of argumentative strategies through which a colourblind, antiracialist status quo is preserved. Colourblind arguments are recruited by both a professional and a lay commentariat, positioning antiracist activists and politicians as a race-obsessed, authoritarian and divorced-from-reality threat to democracy, freedom and social order. In this way, a kind of liberal–conservative alliance is mobilised to resist and deny any substantial effort to engage with the realities of segregation and prejudice, reinforcing colourblindness as the only morally acceptable antiracist stance, in today’s Sweden.
