  • Lecturer

Jennie Gustafsson is a political-economic geographer with an interest in rental housing, municipal governance, and housing inequality. She has previously examined, with the city of Malmö as a departure point, the role of public housing historically until today, and how private rental landlords use renovations as a value-adding strategy, exemplifying financialization of rental housing in the Swedish context. This research included investigations of urban regeneration, specifically how the project ‘Culture Casbah’ in Rosengård enmeshes political-economic housing and urban changes. Currently, she is researching municipal governance and rental market financialization in the case of middle-size municipalities’ interactions with residential property investors in Sweden. Also, she works on a research project investigating vulnerabilities in Sweden’s housing market.
