Ungdomar i Skärholmen och områdets territoriella stigma: en kvalitativ intervjuundersökning

Abstract [sv]

Denna uppsats handlar om ungdomar boendes i de centrala delarna av stadsdelen Skärholmen i relation till områdets territoriella stigma. Undersökningen är av kvalitativ karaktär baserad på djupintervjuer gjorda med sju stycken ungdomar, fyra unga män och tre unga kvinnor, angående den upplevda stigmatiseringen av området. Gemensamt för dessa ungdomar var att alla ville flytta från området och att alla talade om segregering i bemärkelsen avsaknaden av etniska svenskar som en stigmatiseringsaspekt av området. Eftersom den svenska allmänheten ofta utmålar ”invandrartäta områden” som något problematiskt i sig, innebär den höga andelen invandrare i Skärholmen att området stigmatiseras. Dessutom framkom det tydligt i denna undersökning att de unga männen blivit mer påverkade av effekterna av områdets stigma jämfört med de unga kvinnorna i denna undersökning. Klart står att mer kunskap och en utvidgad diskussion kring territoriellt stigma och dess inverkan på ungdomars vardagsvillkor behövs.

Abstract [en]

This paper is about young people living in the central parts of the Stockholm town district Skärholmen, in relation to the territorial stigma of this residential area. The study is a qualitative one, containing in-depth interviews with seven local youths concerning the way they perceive the areas stigmatisation. These youths all shared a common will to move to a different residential area, and they all spoke about segregation in the sense of the lack of ethnic Swedes in the area, as an aspect of the territorial stigma. As the Swedish public often refers to residential areas with a high-level of immigrant population as something problematic, the high-level of immigrants in Skärholmen is a contributing factor of the territorial stigma. Furthermore, it clearly appeared in this study that the young men had been more exposed to the effects of territorial stigma compared to the young women. Clearly, more extended knowledge and more profound discussions about territorial stigma and its effect on youth’s living conditions, is needed.
