Sammanfattning

When and how are issues of race and ethnicity articulated
in the everyday lives of transnational adoptees in
Sweden? Which discursive and practical ambivalences
and conflicts do they provoke? What happens with issues
of race in a country where antiracist colourblindness is the
norm, and where there has been no debate on whether
whites should adopt children of colour? Based on an
analysis of interviews with transnational adoptees and
adoption-related documents, the paper examines how discursive conditions regarding race and ethnicity are negotiated in their daily
lives.
