SEGMIX – Politisk styrning och levda erfarenheter av etnisk olikhet i SEGregerade och MIXade bostadsområden

2018 - 2021

This study is part of the scholarly and political concern about urban diversity and ethnic housing segregation. It inscribes itself in the renewed focus on diversity and ‘everyday multiculturalism’ within qualitative studies. It is also associated with critical perspectives on gender and see to housing segregation as gendered processes. It set out to ‘link perspectives’ and is comparative in its approach. Focus is on how urban diversity is managed in national and local policies and interventions, and in everyday practices in mixed and segregated neighourhoods in Malmö and Copenhagen. This makes an interesting case since urban diversity is managed through similar welfare, and diverging migration, regimes in these cities.
