Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper was to study the factors and mechanisms that influcene the choice of higher education and to highlight the self-image of the adopted individuals. We studied these factors by the help of Pierre Bourdies capital theory. His theory obtains the knowledge about the socioeconomic conditions of our respondents. We also used Erving Goffman's stigma theory to illuminate the adoption and its impact on the individual. These two theories helps us to create the questions to our thematic open interviews. We interwied six respondents adopted from Colombia. With the help of these two theories, we have been able to analyze and encode the empirical evidence. The study has revealed the factors that impact the choices to get an academic education. Previous research shows that adopted individuals possesses a better socio-economic background than the average Swedish family, however these individuals chooses not to educate themselves academically compared to Swedish-born individuals with the same socio-economic background. The result demonstrates that the exclusion of an adopted individual had a big influence in various aspects. In the case when the adopted individual did not choose a higher education, stigma became the contributing factor of that choice.
