A qualitative study on sport as integration for newly arrived girls - how does it work? (English)
Abstract [en]

This essay focused on newly arrived girls and in which way they can participate in sports in Sweden, Vasterbotten county. Research shows that newly arrived boys in a much greater number can be a part of sports when they arrive in a foreign country compared to girls. Thirteen girls have through interviews and focus groups contributed to this study where they shared their own experiences with the sports movement in Sweden. The study wanted to bring knowledge about how they experience being a part of sport in Sweden. But also, which barriers that can appear to make participation a problem and how they thought they had been a part of the Swedish sports movement. The result showed that common barriers were problems with transport and that sports clubs weren’t very good at recruiting the girls. Although the girls thought practising sport was a very effective way of learning the Swedish language, making new friends and to become a part of the society.
