Multiple discrimination. A smokescreen over differences

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


Sweden is frequently described both as one of the most advanced Western countries when it comes to social and economic equality, and as one of the most segregated with respect to gender and ethnicity. That kind of ambiguity leads to problems when discussing ways for immigrants to get entrance to the Swedish labour market and to get a permanent position at a Swedish workplace. In order to explore the interaction between everyday life and law in books, this article examines some of the issues that such a situation raises when looking at multiple discrimination from an intersectional perspective within sociology of law.
