The Dynamics of Inclusion/Exclusion
On 16 March 2011, Researcher Thomas Johansson of the EUMARGINS Swedish team, gave a presentation on the "Social Exclusion and Inclusion of Young Immigrants in Europe" at the Högskolan Väst, University West, in Sweden.
The presentation focused on the EUMARGINS project (background, focus, methodology, and highlighting specific case studies), but it also touched upon an upcoming EUMARGINS publication, "The Dynamics of Inclusion/Exclusion," by Thomas Johansson and Marcus Herz, being published by the Nordic Journal of Youth Research (YOUNG). The purpose of the Young article is "to investigate social psychological processes leading to complex patterns of inclusion and exclusion." In particular the article focuses on Sarah Ahmed's theory of the phenomenology of 'being stopped' (2007) or expressed as patterns of exclusion/inclusion in relation to young adults' experiences of coming to or living in Sweden.
