Abstract [en]

This paper examines urban planning in Stockholm, focusing on the proposal for a new comprehensive plan. It explores the problems urban planning has set out to solve and whether – and if so, how – the concepts of risk and uncertainty form part of the planning discourse. A departure point is that both urban planning ideals and the problems these ideals claim to address are constructed. Explicitly or implicitly, planning creates demarcations that make places and activities appear safe or risky, attractive or problematic, etc. Analysis of the proposal for a new comprehensive plan for Stockholm identifies at least three such boundaries or spatial distinctions: between centre and periphery, green areas and other parts of the city, and risky or unsafe areas and other areas. Likewise, the analysis finds evidence of a tension between rational planning and normative ideas of the “good city” in urban planning.
