When and how are issues of race and ethnicity articulated in the everyday lives of transnational adoptees in Sweden? Which discursive and practical ambivalences and conflicts do they provoke? What happens with issues of race in a country where antiracist colourblindness is the norm, and where there has been no debate on whether whites should adopt children of colour? Based on an analysis of interviews with transnational adoptees and adoption-related documents, Tobias Hübinette and Malinda Andersson examine how discursive conditions regarding race and ethnicity are negotiated in their daily lives.
