Negotiating identities in Scandinavia : women, migration, and the diaspora
New York : Berghahn Books, 2014
“The anthology provides careful analysis based on rich empirical material that illuminates the complexity of the region (and of the migration processes that have occurred in the last thirty years) represented and acted upon as the Nordic…[Its] strength lies in its ability to pose central research questions at the crossroad between the making of the ‘Nordic’ and the original ways through which diasporic communities create gendered forms of belonging that transcend the nation-state. This ability to move between the local and the global through original and reflexive methodologies locates the anthology’s work within a broader international scholarship.”
White migrations : Gender, Whiteness and Privilege in Transnational Migration
Basingstoke : Palgrave Macmillan, 2014
The migrant is often thought of as a non-westerner in search for a better future in Europe or the United States. From a multi-sited ethnography with Swedish migrant women in the US, Singapore and Spain, this book explores the intersections of racial and class privilege and gender vulnerabilities in contemporary feminized migration from or within 'the West'. Through an analysis of 'white migration', Catrin Lundström develops theoretical tools to understand the dynamics that shape the women's lives as wealthy housewives, expatriate wives and lifestyle migrants.

Gothenburg : Department of Sociology and Work Science, University of Gothenburg, 2013

mainstreaming at the European Union (EU) level. The analysis focuses on
two related policy areas: development cooperation and migration.
