Miljonprogrammet: spelade historien roll? : En kvalitativ textanalys om miljonprogrammets stigberoende och dess konsekvenser

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Uppsala universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

Sammanfattning: The aim of this study is to see whether or not the so called Million Homes Programme, that was established in 1965 with the aim to build one million residencies within a ten year span, could have had alternative paths of development and outcomes and whether or not those outcomes would have affected segregation in Sweden to the same degree that many consider the programme to have done today. To study this, the theoretical framework of historical institutionalism will be used, more specifically with the help of an analytical tool within that framework that is called “path dependence” where the purpose is to identify critical junctures, at which actors, through influence from institutions, significantly limit the choice of actions by actors at a future point in the process. Furthermore, the study will be performed by means of analysing texts, specifically state public reports from 1965, 1975 and 1990. The results of the study show that there is a degree of path dependence in the Million Homes Programme, although the degree is not as great as expected. The urbanization and struggle of balance between state and municipalities in city planning are the main factors that enable a certain path dependence. However, more material must be analysed in order to establish a stronger degree of path dependence. The study is able to confirm that the Million Homes Programme could have developed alternatively and had different outcomes, but it is not possible to confirm whether or not those outcomes would have affected or significantly changed the segregation that is seen in Sweden today.
