Abstract [en]

This essay is about how a minority ethnic group, namely, assyrian/syrian immigrants have, or have not, assimilated and integrated into the swedish society. The ethnic group that came to Sweden relatively early, i.e. during but also earlier than the 1970s, came to Sweden when the county extended a helping hand to many refugees who have fled from war, oppression and economic crises. I investigate whether the ethnic group has been assimilated in Sweden and how they have established themselves in the country and whether or not the integration process has gone easier, or not, because of the groups´s habitus, i.e. life experiences, culture, mentality and habits.

The people who have settled in the Middle East for several generations are an indigenous group of people who are known to be one of the first civilized societies and were located in ancient Mesopotamia so called “The assyrian empire”, and have therefore formed an ancient identity. For my last research question, i investigate how the ancient identity has been affected by migration , separation of the ethnic group ,mobility in several countries and how the participants of the study feels about their remaking of the identity. Will the ancient identity disappear, is a discussed question in the analysis.
