Abstract [en]

Since the refugee crisis in 2015 the political landscape in Sweden has changed. There has been a discursive shift from hospitality to hostility. There is now a stronger tendency in Sweden to depict refugees as ‘problems’ in conflict with welfare society. This chapter explores how some Swedish parents who became deeply involved in the reception practices responded to the urgent political and demographic changes. I specifically focus on parents’ hospitable work among refugees in the intimate arena of everyday life. My discussion concentrates on questions of ‘belonging’ and ‘othering’ (Ahmed 2004), and I approach parents’ care work in terms of ‘kinning’ (Howell 2006) and ‘mothering’ (Ruddick 2002) within a context of (un)conditional hospitality (Derrida 2000). Why did these parents commit themselves to supporting refugees? What kinds of social and emotional bonds were shaped? How was their support connected to their mothering? How did they prepare their children for multicultural conviviality in a society in the midst of a political and cultural transformation? The analysis is based on parents’ narratives and demonstrates the impact of everyday life and its close connection to the larger societal and political context of (forced) migration. Even though these parents were involved in ‘kinning’ and mothering processes and certainly demonstrated their political resistance against the discursive shift towards hostility, power inequalities between ‘host’ and ‘guest’ were still present and hard to overcome.
