Svante Lundgren is a researcher at the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at Lund University.
In the spring of 1967 the first group of Assyrians came to Sweden. During the fifty years since then, the Assyrians have evolved into today being one of the largest immigrant groups in the country. Many of them are born in Sweden and fully integrated here. Others have come recently because of the continued persecution they suffer in their homelands.
This book describes how the Assyrians arrived in Sweden, how they established churches and associations here, how the debate went lively about their right to stay in the country, how they achieved as entrepreneurs and in football, and how their relationships with the surrounding society has changed. We hear different voices tell us about the experiences of living in the Swedish society.
This book is in Swedish.
