URBAN CHANGE AND RESIDENTIAL SEGREGATION –
WHAT ARE THE PROCESSES BEHIND INCREASED RESIDENTIAL SEGREGATION IN THE CITY
OF MALMOE
By Madeleine Bertini Leviste, MA Cand.

Abstract:
The aim of the thesis is to study urban change in the city of Malmoe
through examining residential segregation over the past 30 years. It will
become evident how societal processes have shaped Malmoe and the way
individual families make choices about where to hold residence is to a
large extent dependent on the way local and global forces work together;
may it be economic, social, political and/or cultural. What seems to be a
purely individual choice is shaped by a variety of factors going beyond the
level of the individual. Since global forces are increasingly influencing
the patterns of changing cities, as a result the power of local governments
has often become limited. It will therefore be argued that the way global
forces take hold at the local level together with the local context;
social, economic, political, cultural and historical is maintaining and
reinforcing the contemporary residential segregation patterns. Along the
lines of political economic theory it will be confirmed how it is economic
interests that tend to win over the community’s real needs and demands.
