Abstract [en]

Young people with immigrant backgrounds are especially exposed in their identity formation. They may face particular difficulties if they also identify themselves as religious, such as being positioned as odd and different in negative ways by their peers. Focusing on the social conditions for developing an integrated identity, and through the theoretic lens of dialogical self-theory, this article asks how young religious immigrants are positioned by the expectations of their social environments. The article is based on qualitative interviews with 23 religious youths with immigrant backgrounds living south of Stockholm. The result highlights three discernible conflicts in the youths’ identity formation: being religious and Swedish, being religious and young and being religious and a feminist. Despite these conflicts, they all want to stay religious as adults, even though their stories reveal hesitation and insecurity about the future.
