Abstract [en]

Sweden meets today one of the largest refugee flows in modern times and there are strong doubts that the communities are able to integrate the large amount of refugees entering the country. This creates a risk of segregation increasing further as a problem for the society as a whole. Housing companies, owned by the municipalities, have been considered appropriate to handle the situation. This is based on the idea that the monitoring and controlling municipalities can exercise power over them and thus could be used to ensure that houses for every citizen are built.

The purpose of this study is to highlight the role of the municipal housing company ÖBO and how it is provided in the communal segregation policy. The study will also include examining the approach to segregation which ÖBO's role and work expresses. Based on this, we intend to contribute to a better understanding of how the segregation is addressed and constructed as a social problem. To answer the purpose of the study we will study Örebro as a most likely case to solve the segregation problem. The study will use interviews with selected politicians and officials, alongside with document analysis of relevant policy documents and action plans to identify the work to lower the segregation in Örebro and how ÖBO participates in it.

Results from the study tells us that ÖBO plays a key role in the efforts to fix and prevent the segregation problem. The main causes of the segregation problem seem to be unemployment and the lack of mix of different housing in the districts. ÖBO is an important contributor to soften the causes and effects of the segregation dilemma through its participation in designing and remodel new and old districts and in the work to lower the unemployment rate in districts where the unemployment is high.
