Abstract

This paper addresses how the flesh of people of colour—or their skin to be more specific—come to play a role in organizing, that is, positioning the other in public debates in Denmark about ‘Danishness’ and integration. These issues recently resurfaced and became topical following the more than 1 million people – refugees, displaced persons, and other migrants – that, according to the European Commission (2016), made their way to the EU in 2015. These groups of people are, as for example seen on the front cover of the Polish magazine above, (re)presented as foreigners and brutal through their skin colour and religion and the assumed connection between the two.
