Abstract [en]

A common assumption is that European lifestyle migrants integrate rather easily into Swedish villages because they are more culturally proximate to Swedish people. To nuance this myth, the authors combine insights from lifestyle migration studies in Swedish villages with intercultural communication models. Taking into account six dimensions of national culture and acculturation theory, this chapter discusses challenges and difficulties for incoming European lifestyle migrants and local Swedish villagers when they attempt to live and work together. In addition to individual people, and the local authorities, family structure and family dynamics, the existence of a local diaspora from the home country, as well as the attitude of the local Swedish community at an interpersonal level, all play a determining role in the final acculturation outcome.
