Project Details

Layman's description

The aim is to examine whether and how xenophobic tendencies can be understood in light of changes in the role of the labour movement in society. Landskrona has been chosen because a populist party, Sverigedemokraterna, got a relatively large share of votes in the 2006 elections. Landskrona has previously been a social democratic stronghold.
