Ritual performance and belonging

(p.160) Conclusion Ritual performance and belonging
Iraqi women in Denmark

Marianne Holm Pedersen

Manchester University Press

This conclusion draws out the main findings of the book and discusses them in relation to both the analytical perspectives that provided the framework of the book and the political contexts that frame the everyday lives of Iraqi women in Denmark. It starts by outlining the processes of localisation that Iraqi women have gone through and it points to the limitations in their construction of belonging to Danish society, particularly with regard to the politics of belonging in Denmark. The author calls for grounding analyses of migration and belonging in ethnographic studies of everyday lives, social relations and practice. The findings of the book raise several questions regarding rituals and belonging in the context of migration, and the author therefore reflects on the potential of ritual events. The conclusion ends with a discussion of the structural barriers of inclusion in Denmark and the effects of the so-called ‘cartoon crisis’ that unravelled in Denmark just after the author had concluded her fieldwork.
