nia-Herzegovina shows that both foreign and local politi- cal actors have pursued exclusionary decision-making practices and thus bolstered ethnic divisions of the soci- ety, ethnic segmentation of fragmented labour market, informalisation of the economy and privatisation captured by ethno-national elites. Social Networks, Civil society and Ethnic relations in Ukraine;Erik Olsson, Associate pårofessor and Eleonora Narvselius PhD student (LiU) This project is a part study in a longitudinal research carried on by Olsson and Narvselius, dealing with social networks, civil society and ethnic relations in Ukraina (Olsson, E & Narvselius, E. 2003). Within this project Eleonora Narvselius is writing her PhD thesis focusing on two aspects of a general problematic: a) national identity and symbolic power among Ukrainian intelligentsia and b) the formation of identities among young people in Ukrainian urban space . The intelligentsia study is still in progress. It revolves around the symbolic strategies among the intelligentsia while mobilizing for the Ukrain- ian nation. The study of young people of Russian affilia- tion in L’viv showed that Russian identity was perceived as a counter-culture to a chauvinistic Ukrainian national identity and closely affiliated with an urban identity that referred to life-style and ‘behaviour’ rather than Russian nationality (Narvselius (2003, 2006). Erik Olsson is a scientific leader of the Network on Dias- pora and Transnationalism (funded by FAS), 2004. In this capacity he has arranged several seminars and workshops in Sweden. Migration policy, refugees and return migration; Erik Olsson, Christina Johansson, Zoran Slavnic (LiU/NIWL cooperation) This project, directed by associate professor Erik Olsson, focused on a) policies of the Swedish Migration Board (SMB) and how particular discourses and understand- ings of migration were mirrored in repatriation-practices (particularly targeting Bosnians and Somalis) and b) how migrants’ themselves understood their migrant-situation and c ) their actual migration-strategies. The examination of SMB practice demonstrated a close connection be- tween the discourse of the authorities and a mechanistic push- and pull-approach in understanding migration, thereby mirroring a sedentarist view on how to deal with migration. (Olsson 2002, 2004, 2004a). Migrants of Bos- nian (Slavnic 2002), Somali and Chilean origin, on the other hand, expressed a more processual approach on migration, stressing the need for an open-ended strategy on migration. Subthematic programme III: Modes of citizenship in cities and regions International economic development and the weakening of the nation- and welfare state may have important con- sequences on the levels of local communities and re- gions. One trend goes towards increased self- govern- ment, and another towards increased focus on social problems and the exclusion of, not the least, immigrant

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
