Får göteborgarna inreda sitt eget vardagsrum? Medborgardialog - Heden
Sammanfattning: Since the emergence of communicative planning theory, concepts such as citizen dialogue and citizen participation have taken a greater place in urban development. It is a common belief that through communicative planning, citizens are given an increased political influence. Many cities today face major problems such as rapid population growth and housing shortages as a result of increased urbanization. An important issue that arises in this process is how public spaces within the city should be used and developed. This paper is a case study of this process in Gothenburg. The thesis studies the conditions for citizen participation in the planning process through citizen dialogue. In addition to this, it is analyzing what citizens see as development opportunities for the public space and how this can be in opposition with the function of the public space today. The analysis is based on Sherry R. Arnstein's "A Ladder of Citizen Participation" and SKL's "delaktighetstrappa". The thesis concludes that the City of Gothenburg has created relatively good conditions for participation in the planning process of Heden, mainly by working proactively. Just like a large number of previous studies show, there are some problems associated with the process, such as representation and influence of power. In the results of the essay, the function of public space and development opportunities relating to public space were described by citizens and other actors mostly by focusing on issues regarding housing, recreational opportunities and accessibility.
