Specifically, we discuss how the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 and the subsequent formation of Comintern enhanced elites’ perceptions of revolutionary threat by affecting the capacity and motivation of la…


Experiences of Well-Being (or lack thereof) among Sámi & Roma Women in a Swedish Context

The Sami indigenous group living in Sweden has a long-standing history of a forced assimilation policy, exemplified by reduced possibilities for reindeer herding and restrictions on using the Sami language (Amft, 2000; Olofsson, 2004). …
