In this article the concept of the "safety net", which the author defines as the sum of the strategies put in place by a specific community to cope with social risks, is applied to the analysis of the integration dynamics of the Somali diaspora living in Scandinavian countries. In particular, the study examines the forms of support and assistance involving the extended Somali family or clan, in order to bring to the surface the existing discrepancies with the framework of the Scandi-navian integration policies. These differences, if not mediated, produce experienc-es of insecurity among the Somali diaspora, which are then responsible for hinder-ing the integration process. The article presents excerpts from interviews held with 11 women and 11 Somali men between 2015 and 2017 in Denmark, Norway and Sweden.
Keywords: Social security; Somalis; welfare state; refugees; integration; Scandina-via.
