Ungdom, utanförskap och bostadsområdet som reservat. En samtidsorienterad studie av stadsdelen Hovsjö i Södertälje stad

by Gutestrand, Sammy; Strandberg, Fredrik

Abstract (Summary)
This study is an investigation of a sub community within the community of Hovsjö. The local government has financed a project in Hovsjö which is intended to bring about positive development. The prior object of this paper is to describe the project, it’s planning, it’s methods, it’s carrying through, and it’s goals. This study presents the district of Hovsjö in Södertälje. According to a government agency the district is classified as one of Sweden’s twelve most socioeconomicly exposed metropolitan sub-areas. Our goal is to tell about the prevailing condition there and to present the experiences of a group of residents. From a pedagogical and sociological point of view this commitment in Hovsjö can become a tool to break the alienation. Our study of the metropolitan sub-area and the Hovsjö investment project is empirical. However in our concluding discussion we suggest that the Hovsjö investment project will succeed in breaking alienation there.
