Abstract [en]

This paper presents some ways in which young people of a migrant background in Sweden handle their marginalisation at a time of transition from school to higher education. The stories of two young men are discussed, who develop opposing strategies to cope with the double bind created by a society that promotes meritocracy but acts on the basis of racialised exclusionary practices. One is forced into the position of immigrant while wanting to be recognised as Swede. The other has more possibilities to be recognised as Swedish but chooses to define himself as immigrant and to understand his experiences through a political analysis of racism in Swedish society. While the conflict in which the former finds himself leads to a state of paralysis, the later is able to de-individualise his position and thus to integrate his different belongings. It is argued that while the celebration of hybridity and multicultural capabilities is crucial, it is also important to recognise how marginalisation and discrimination hamper young people's capacity to act.
