Abstract

The focus of this paper is on how transnational relations of Somali-Swedes shapes their onward immigration to the United Kingdom and intervenes in their educational and labour market career. The data for the study was collected using ethnographic interview methods in multiple locations: Stockholm, London and Birmingham and analysed using the concept of imagination as a social practice. The results of this study show that onward immigration of Somali-Swedes has multiple agendas, and more importantly it is contingent on the political, cultural and economic structure of opportunities of category embedded in the transnational spaces.
