Efraim - A Desire to Fit In

Efraim is twenty years old and was born in Iran. He arrived in Sweden eight years ago through family reunification. After facing initial difficulties adjusting to life in Sweden he has now gradually adapted to the new environment. He has begun to plan his future and aims to continue his education and become more independent. What is interesting about Efraim is that he emphasizes "the importance of becoming more Swedish" as a requirement to fit in to Swedish society and culture. Learn more about Efraim through his story.

Efraim's story is the second of three illustrative cases that are being published from the Swedish research context of EUMARGINS.
