Abstract [en]

The aim of this thesis is to explore the motives of remittance regarding the Somali-Diaspora in Sweden, and the contrast of remittance motives across two generations. The research is a qualitative comparative small N-case study conducted in Gothenburg and data is obtained through focus groups using a semi-structured interview. Theories and concepts such as ‘Motive of Remittance Theory’ and Diaspora Concept serve to explain the reasoning behind the action of remittance from the perspective of the remitters, whilst acknowledging an interplay of generational identity and motives. The research shows that a visible contrast in motives exists across the two research groups. The first-generation respondents were more likely to have Altruistic motives while practicing remittance, however, the second-generation respondents were more prone to motives of Community Investment and minor Self- Interest motives compared to their predecessors.
