Swede of the Year

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearch


    The story of footballer Zlatan Ibrahimović is that of the son of immigrants who made it out of the ghetto, excelled in the world’s football stadiums, married a blond Swedish girl and was successfully integrated into Swedish society. It is a story of an outsider who was so assimilated into Swedishness that he came to symbolise something very Swedish.
