Title [sv]
En stad för alla? En studie om unga kvinnors liv i en föränderlig förort.
Title [en]
A city for everyone? A study about young women´s lives in a transforming suburb.
Abstract [en]
Stockholm is growing. By year 2050, it is expected to expand with another million inhabitants. More housing is needed, especially in suburban areas. At the same time, inequalities and segregation are growing significantly in Stockholm. This is challenging. The question is how to build an equal and sustainable city - a city for everyone. This study aims to examine equality – or inequality – in the transforming urban context by focusing on the experiences of young women living in multi-ethnic working class suburban areas, a group generally ignored and disadvantaged. The aim is to explore how urban space is perceived and used (or lived) by young women in ‘marginalised’ suburban areas as well as conceived by the people who plan, control and manage these areas. Various forms of inequality wihin such ´place-making processes will also be in focus. An interdisciplinary team of researchers will during four years conduct an in-depth ethnographic study in three suburban areas south of Stockholm – Fittja, Flemingsberg and Östberga. Various forms of qualitative methods, in partciular participant observations and interviews, will be used in combination with quantiative GIS-analysis of the areas. In line with Crenshaw - one of the forerunners of intersectional thinking - our project departs from the idea that if we address the needs of those who are disadvantaged and restructure urban space accordingly, then others will benefit too. Thus, working our way towards a more equal city.

Abstract [en]

A debate about emerging models of urban living labs (ULLs) 2.0 is taking place in the literature, highlighting the importance of social aspects. The aim of this paper is to examine feminist ULLs as a potential source of social sustainability. This is conducted through a case study of a feminist ULL in Sweden, where girls and young women, together with multiple professional stakeholders, used Minecraft to redesign a public square in their neighbourhood - a marginalised suburban area of Stockholm. Data was collected through participant observations of six experimental labs during 1 year, surveys of the ULL participants, and an analysis of the fnal Minecraft designs. The empirical fndings reveal a process of mutual learning between girls and professional stakeholders, where the girls were viewed as place experts. The fndings also reveal that the girls’ visions include a socially sustainable transition of the urban square: from patriarchal to inclusive, from grey to green, and from a transit area to a meeting-place. There were some diferences between girls and professional stakeholders. Whereas the professionals tended to emphasise security in their visions, the girls emphasised liveability. Although more research is needed, this paper concludes that feminist ULLs can be a possible source of social sustainability. However, the ULL process must both be inclusive, and at the same time unlock long-term transformation in the physical environment.

Abstract [sv]

Covid-19 började som en hälsokris och växte snabbt till en omfattande samhällskris – i det privata och offentliga livet, nationellt och internationellt, lokalt och globalt. Syftet med denna artikel är att bidra med kunskap om människors oro under covid-19-pandemins första fas i Sverige. Oro studeras utifrån sociodemografiska faktorer, socialt kapital samt människors bedömningar av nationella åtgärder och potentiella hot. Studiens teoretiska ramverk utgår från begrepp och teorier om oro och socialt kapital. Data samlades in i Sverige under april–maj 2020 med hjälp av en webbaserad enkät om människors erfarenheter av covid-19-pandemin. Genom multipel regressionsanalys och multipel korrespondensanalys fann vi att graden av oro är nära kopplad till bedömningen av nationella åtgärder som felaktiga, samt till uppfattningen att själva viruset covid-19 är det största hotet (i jämförelse med ekonomiska eller sociala konsekvenser av pandemin). Dessa faktorer var även relaterade till högre ålder, kronisk sjukdom samt lågt socialt kapital. Artikeln pekar på ett behov av mer sociologisk forskning – både kvantitativ och kvalitativ – om pandemins olika konsekvenser i vardagslivet.

Abstract [sv]

Stockholmsregionen växer och utvecklas. Regionen förväntas växa med ytterligare cirka en miljon invånare fram till år 2050. Fler människor måste dela på stadens utrymmen och resurser. Stockholms ytterområden – där de flesta bor och kommer att bo – förtätas och rustas upp. Hur bygger vi då ett hållbart Stockholm, ett samhälle där alla kan få plats, delta, trivas och må bra?
