The research areas are concerned with the ways in which caregivers within elderly care reason and respond to questions concerning ethnicity. The overarching aim of the research is to approach the complexities of care giving, not immediately related to client-care giver relations, but rather to the social relations that are products of structural conditions described by the care givers themselves. The intention is to illustrate how the practical actions of the life world are connected to and regulated by the discourses that inform them. This is done by showing how discourses create spaces for the appropriation and deployment of specific practices in our society. Keywords: caregiving, migration, gender, class, working conditions, ethnicity, discourse analysis.
