Vad görs för att lösa bostadsbristen i våra storstäder? En jämförande studie om bostadsförsörjningsarbetet i Göteborg och Malmö

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Göteborgs universitet / Institutionen för ekonomi och samhälle

Sammanfattning: This dissertation is about how two of Sweden’s largest cities are working to resolve the housing crisis. The study focuses on the ways in which the municipal governments have responded to the clarification of their delegated housing responsibility which was issued in 2013 by examining their housing policies and activities during the period 2014 to 2019. This comparative case study of Gothenburg and Malmo has been conducted through analysis of municipal regulations, documents and follow-up of the municipalities’ undertakings since 2014. The results of this comparative case study show that both cities have increased the responsiveness of their planning systems and levels of construction to record levels. Malmo has succeeded in reducing the housing shortage, while the higher construction levels in Gothenburg have not reduced the city’s housing shortage. The clarification of municipal housing responsibilities seems to have had an effect and has been implemented in both cities. The cases of Malmo and Gothenburg highlight the need for housing for people with low income. The right to housing has been a legalized constitutional right during the 21 st century in Sweden. This right has however not been implemented in practice. It remains to be seen whether the right to housing will be a broad policy and universal right or whether a narrower social housing policy approach will be adopted in the future.
