Abstract [en]

Along with the increasing economic and trade links, cultural exchange and tourism activities between the two countries, migration from Thailand to Sweden has been rapidly growing over the last decade (Webster & Haandrikman, 2014). There are manifold reasons that contribute to the migration to Sweden by many Thais, the most common and significant ones are marriage migration and berry picking (labour migration) (Hedberg, 2015).  

The aim of the study is to identify and analyse the marriage migration and berry picking migration in order to provide a better understanding of these two Thai migrant groups in Sweden and how they relate to each other. Due to the time limit and the difficulty in accessing formal employed berry pickers during the research period, the paper will only focus on the informal Thai berry pickers who have the relationship with their settled relatives in Sweden.
