Love Refugees: Inter-ethnic intimate partnership formations

Lone Nielsen, Frida S. Dunger, Caroline Holten-Andersen & Maria Frederikke Munch

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


The focus of this report has been inter-ethnic intimate couples who have moved to Sweden due to the Danish family reunification laws. We have been interested in investigating how the couples make sense of their relationship and situation, and there-fore have conducted qualitative interviews with two couples affected by these laws. We explore different discourses on love and relationships and how this is reflected in our interview data. Additionally, we look into the context of the Danish family reunification laws by studying the concept of culture and looking into different tendencies in relation to Denmark as a multicultural society.
