  • Power and Resistance: Exploring strategies of self-empowerment among
           Syrian asylum seekers in Sweden

    • Authors: Zara Baghdasaryan
      Pages: 1 - 12
      Abstract: This article explores the experiences of Syrian asylum seekers, who are waiting for their decision or have recently received it, in Sweden. The empirical data were collected through semi-structured interviews with ten women and men during a month-long period of fieldwork conducted in the autumn of 2016 in an asylum center located in the south of Sweden. The research queries the regimes of power that shape the everyday realities of respondents, mainly the Swedish state, the camp administration, and the wider Swedish society. Simultaneously, the study illustrates how individuals are active agents, navigating their interactions and resisting and negotiating the established power relations.

  • Migrant Smuggling, Reasons for Fleeing, and Uses of Asylum Capital among
           Afghan Asylum Seekers in Sweden

    • Authors: Admir Skodo
      Abstract: In 2015 Afghans were the second largest group of asylum seekers in Sweden (and Europe). In this article, I analyze interviews conducted in early 2017 in Scania County with six adult male Afghan asylum seekers, an executive officer at the Swedish Migration Agency, the head of a private asylum seeker camp, and a voluntary worker. I show how the asylum seekers made their way to Sweden not so much through a pre-meditated choice, but by the combined effect of a worsened security situation in Afghanistan since the 2014 withdrawal of foreign troops, increasingly harsh measures against Afghans in Iran and Pakistan, and the migrant smuggling industry. Drawing on Pierre Bourdieu’s social theory, I then focus on practices surrounding the interviewed Afghans in the time encompassing their arrival, asylum application, and waiting for a decision in a privately run asylum seeker camp. I introduce the concept of asylum capital as a means to spell out the opportunities and constraints for being granted asylum in Sweden as an Afghan.

  • Neither Shi‘a nor Sunni: An Interview with a Mozabite

    • Authors: Anthony T Fiscella
      Pages: 75 - 78
      Abstract: The Ibadi perspective on the early caliphate di ers from that of both Sunnis and Shi‘a. From their point of view, the only legitimate way to come to power is not through familial or tribal a liation or through divine selection, but through selection by the leading men of the Muslim community
      (Ho man 2012: 7). e Mozabites are peculiar in several respects. ey represent a small Berber island in an Arab sea; they are the only city-dwellers in the Sahara; they practice a erce and exclusive form of Islamic puritanism but in an urban and not a tribal frame of society; and they have kept their institutions intact
      (Alport 1954: 34).
