This thesis, which is designed through the optics of critical realism, the experiences of Afghan and Middle Eastern migrants in regards to integration and stigmatization in Denmark. This is a qualitative interview examination. This is based upon five qualitative interviews with people, who stem from either Afghanistan or the Middle East, who has some experience in regards to integration and stigmatization. Their experiences is illuminated through integration theory from Flemming Mikkelsen (2001), and stigmatization theory from Erving Goffman (2998[1963]). In the analysis itself the experiences of the migrants are showcased in regards to, why they came to Denmark, how the encounter with different people and systems have played out, and how they themselves understand the concepts of integration and stigmatization. This leads to discussion on their similar and different experiences, which makes the foundation for the conclusions of the study. Within the framework of the study, the conclusion points to, that the Afghan and Middle Eastern migrants have both similar, and different experiences of integration and stigmatization in Denmark.
