Abstract [en]

This paper’s written by Fatih Kulbay and Robin Sütcü, which aim has been to explore how living in a territorially stigmatized place affects one's identity and self-image, but also of the impact that civil society have on the individuals sense of belonging. The aim has also been to exteriorize coping-strategies from the stigmatization. This field study is comprised of semi- structured interviews which have taken place in Fryshuset Husby and Reactor in Husby. Our theoretical framework has been Erving Goffman's concept of stigma which have made operationalized by Bruce G. Link and Jo C. Phelan. The thesis regarding grouping in Norbert Elias and John L. Scotsons The Established and the Outsiders have also been utilized in our analysis as well as previous research. The result has been varying overall on the individuals’ identity and self-image, which have in some cases been strengthened, in other cases lead to further insecurities or frustration, which in turn gave rise to different strategies. Furthermore, a correlation between one’s identity and sense of belonging to Husby and society at large respectively exists, which relates to Goffman's final phase of maturity where these organizations have had a positive impact on the individuals’ identity, self- image and belonging.

Abstract [sv]

Denna uppsats har gjorts av Fatih Kulbay och Robin Sütcü och syftat till att undersöka hur ens identitet och självbild påverkas av att bo på en territoriellt stigmatiserad plats men också av den inverkan civilsamhället har på individens känsla av tillhörighet. Uppsatsen blottlägger även strategier för att hantera stigmat. Vår fältstudie har omfattats av semistrukturerade intervjuer, vilka tagit plats i Fryshuset Husby och Reactor i Husby. Primära teorin har varit Erving Goffmans begrepp stigma som gjorts empiriskt mätbar av Bruce G. Link och Jo C. Phelan. Dessutom har Norbert Elias och John L. Scotsons tes ur Etablerade och Outsiders om grupperingar använts i analysen samt tidigare forskning. Undersökningen har gett varierande resultat kring individernas identitet och självbild, som i vissa fall stärkts, i andra fall lett till osäkerhet och frustration vilka i sin tur givit upphov till olika strategier. Dessutom korreleras deras identitet och känsla av tillhörighet till Husby respektive övriga samhället, som relateras till Goffmans slutgiltiga mognadsfas där organisationer inom den stigmatiserade platsen haft en positiv påverkan på individens identitet, självbild och känsla av tillhörighet.
