    Housing Displacement: Conceptual and Methodological Issues2020Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This book examines reasons, processes and consequences of housing displacement in different geographical contexts. It explores displacement as a prime act of housing injustice – a central issue in urban injustices.

    With international case studies from the US, the UK, Australia, Canada, India, Spain, Denmark, Sweden, and Hungary, this book explores how housing displacement processes are more diverse and mutate into more new forms than have been acknowledged in the literature. It emphasizes a need to look beyond the existing rich gentrification literature to give primacy to researching processes of displacement to understand the socio-spatial change in the city. Although it is empirically and methodologically demanding for several reasons, studying displacement highlights gentrification’s unjust nature as well as the unjust housing policies in cities and neighborhoods that are simply not undergoing gentrification. The book also demonstrates how expulsion, though under-researched, has become a vital component of contemporary advanced capitalism, and how a focus on gentrification has hindered a potential focus on its flipside of ‘displacement’, as well as the study of the occurrence of poor cleansing from a long-term historical perspective.

    This book offers interdisciplinary perspectives on housing displacement to academics and researchers in the fields of urban studies, housing, citizenship and migration studies interested in housing policies and governance practices at the urban scale.

    Vad är den svenska modellen? Socialdemokratisk historieskrivning i den samtida ”tiggeridebatten”2019In: Creating the City. Identity, Memory and Participation. Conference proceedings, Malmö universitet, 2019, p. 343-362Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna text gör nedslag i debatten om tiggande EU-medborgare i Sverige – en debatt som nu har pågått i flera år. Kännetecknande för denna debatt, särskilt dådet kommer till att föreslå möjliga ”lösningar” på det som ofta kallas ”tiggeriet”, är de återkommande hänvisningarna till det svenska välfärdssamhällets tillblivelse, och framförallt då etablerandet av det socialdemokratiska folkhemmet. Textens fokus på folkhemmet som just ett socialdemokratiskt projekt beror till viss del påatt partiet har suttit vid regeringsmakten sedan 2014. En koppling görs mellan dagens socialdemokratiska makthavare och de som styrde landet dådet utbredda ”tiggeriet” påstås ha avskaffats. Påså sätt rör debatten synen pådet svenska välfärds- samhällets historia. Denna historia är dock långt ifrån entydig. I denna text vill vi visa hur dagens debatt innefattar en aktiv historieskrivning i form av en diskursiv kamp kring begrepp som ”den svenska modellen” och ”välfärdspolitiken”.

    Differential Deportability And Contradictions Of A Territorialised Right To Education: A Perspective From Sweden2017In: movements : Journal für kritische Migrations- und Grenzregimeforschung, ISSN 2364-8732, Vol. 3, no 1, p. 51-69Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    How is it possible to argue that one group of children should be excluded from education when it has been defined as a fundamental right of all children residing in Sweden? In this article, we explore this question through a comparative reading of two different sets of government reports: the first establishes that »children who reside in Sweden without permission« should have an unrestricted right to education, while the second proposes that so-called »children of vulnerable EU-citizens« should not. These positions appear incommensurable. We suggest, however, that they are thoroughly entan- gled. Under the current regime of migration control, deportation and deportability is what makes it possible for the Swedish government to grant rights on the basis of territorial presence without abandoning its commitment to regulate residence. Thus, the notion that »vulnerable EU-citizens« cannot easily be deported is mobilised to argue that they should be excluded from the right to education. We see this as an expression of how rights are integral to the governance of migrations to and through the European Union.

    Confessions of Privilege and the Re-constitution of Whiteness2015Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Over the last several decades, an approach to critical scholarship and social justice activism has emerged that seeks to interrogate unmarked sites of privilege and power; including whiteness, masculinity and heterosexuality. Some have referred to this turn as the 'politics of privilege'. The growth of whiteness- and masculinity-studies is emblematic of this turn, as is the emphasis on practices of self-reflexivity and the confessing of privilege. This paper seeks to discuss the shortcomings of the politics of privilege in the context of whiteness studies and anti-racist activism, and to reflect on the limits to self-reflexivity as an academic practice and strategy for social and political change. While the politics of privilege is certainly not without merit, this paper argues that they nevertheless serve to reinstall white supremacy and racism in the following ways: 1) by constituting the white subject as the one that is capable of self-reflexivity, while simultaneously positioning the racialized subject as the 'raw-material' for this reflexivity, 2) by (re-)centring conversations about race and racism on the agency of white people, 3) by fixing racialized subjects in a posture of complaint consistent with the so-called 'politics of recognition', and 4) through what Sara Ahmed calls the 'fantasy of transcendence' whereby white people, by declaring an awareness of racism, attempts to position themselves as being immune to its effects. Ultimately then, this papers calls into question the transformative potential of 'good intentions' and underscores the importance of structural change and concrete action.

    Free to Move Along: On the Urbanisation of Cross-border Mobility Controls - A Case of Roma 'EU migrants' in Malmö, Sweden2019Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis traces the local government response to the presence of impoverished and street-homeless so-called vulnerable EU-citizens in Malmö (Sweden’s third largest city) between the years 2014-2016, and develops an analysis about how bordering takes place in cities. “Vulnerable EU-citizens” is an established term in the Swedish context, used by the authorities to refer to citizens of other EU Member States who are staying in Sweden without a right of residence and in situations of extreme poverty and marginality. A majority of those whom are categorised as “vulnerable EU-citizens” are Roma from Bulgaria or Romania. Starting from the observation that “vulnerable EU-citizens” have been pervasively problematised as unwanted migrants, the thesis asks how the municipal- and local authorities in Malmö act to discourage and otherwise manage their mobilities by controlling their conditions of stay. In doing so, it seeks to elaborate on theories about intra-EU bordering practices, and to elucidate some of the mechanisms, effects and implications of urban mobility control practices. Methodologically, the thesis is structured as a case study, centring on the case of the intensely contested Sorgenfri-camp – a makeshift squatter settlement that housed a large proportion of Malmö’s estimated total population of “vulnerable EU-citizens”. The Sorgenfri-camp was established in 2014 and lasted for a year and a half before it was demolished in November 2015 on the order of the City of Malmö’s environmental authorities. Often referred to in the media as “Sweden’s largest slum”, the Sorgenfri-camp was quite literally a central locus of a local and national political “crisis” regarding the growth of unauthorised squatter settlements. As a “critical case”, it offers a vantage point from which to trace the development of policy and government practices towards “vulnerable EU-citizens” and observe how the authorities negotiate the legal ambiguities, moral-political dilemmas, and social conflicts that swirl around the unauthorised settlements of “vulnerable EU-citizens”. It also serves as a key example of a more widespread framing of “the problem of vulnerable EU-citizens” as an order, nuisance and sanitation problem. The analysis is carried out with a theoretical framework informed by Foucaultian poststructuralist theory and theories of scale, combining insights from the field of critical border and migration studies with concepts from the legal geographic literature on urban socio-spatial control. In particular, it follows socio-legal scholar Mariana Valverde’s (2010) call to foreground the role of scalar categorisation and politics in the networked policing of various non-citizens. The analysis addresses the construction of the Sorgenfri-camp and its residents as a “nuisance problem” in popular and policy discourse, and explores the effects and consequences of this framing in the context of the administrative-legal process that resulted in the demolition of the settlement. The thesis highlights the city as a space where complex negotiations over residency-status, rights and belonging play out. It submits that local authorities in Malmö have responded to the presence and situation of vulnerable EU-citizens in the city by enacting a series of practices and programs that jointly add up to an indirect policy of exclusionary mobility control, the cumulative effect of which is to eliminate the “geographies of survival” for the group in question. Furthermore, it argues that this reinforces the complex modulations of un/free mobility” in the EU: destitute EU-citizens who are formally free to move and reside within the union are repeatedly moved along, and thus effectively prevented from settling. This is taken to be illustrative of an urbanisation of mobility control practices: a convergence between mobility control and urban socio-spatial control, or a rescaling of mobility control from the edges of the nation-state to the urban scale and, ultimately, to the body of the “vulnerable EU-citizen”.

    Get them out of the country, in one way or another: On the Undoing of Geographies of Survival for Mobile Roma EU-citizens in Malmö, Sweden2018In: Society & Space : Forum, no Dec 11Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this forum piece I argue that the state and municipal authorities in Malmö, Sweden – in the absence of any direct and formal controls on the entry of EU-citizens – have attempted to discourage, regulate and otherwise manage the presence of mobile Roma EU-citizens by regulating their access to social rights, and their access and use of public space. In effect, if not in intention, this is a politics of mobility control through destitution.

    The politics of legal technicalities: an inquiry into the demolition of a Roma EU-migrant settlement in Malmö, Sweden2017In: Contested Property Claims: What Disagreement Tells Us About Ownership / [ed] Maja Hojer Bruun, Patrick Joseph Cockburn, Bjarke Skærlund Risager, Mikkel Thorup, Routledge, 2017Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Social conflicts related to Roma – Europe’s most persecuted people – are often mired in discourses of sanitation and framed around garbage, odour, and smoke. What happens when such elements are translated into objects of legal governance? This chapter explores the legal process that led to the expulsion of about two hundred Roma from a squatter settlement in Malmö, Sweden. Highlighting the role of legal tech- nicalities, it suggests that the process hinged on the categorisation of the settlement as trash and on the power of the municipal authorities to supersede private property rights in order to enforce standards of health and sanitation.

    Where Property Laws come into Conflict with the Need for Shelter, Humanitarian Ethics and Ideas for Social Justice: The Case of Sorgenfrilägret, and Informal Tent Camp in Malmö, Sweden2015Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    With the undoing of national borders within the European Union – and specifically within the Schengen Area – the municipal scale, the city scale, has emerged as an important – if not the most important – scale for the regulation of mobility and settlement within the European Union. Following, among others Mariana Valverde, (2011; 2005) this paper argues that the regulation of mobility, settlement, and also citizenship, at the municipal scale tends to rely on rather banal administrative measures – such as, for example social service and environmental administration. The paper present an inquiry into the 2015 eviction of Sorgenfrilägret - an intensely contested informal settlement in Malmö, Sweden in present-day Sweden. Based on primary interviews as well as a close reading of legal and policy documents the paper argues that the eviction of the residents of Sorgenfrilägret is a poignant example of how certain regulatory practices have been mobilised in what seems to me an attempt to safeguard the internal spaces of both Malmö and Sweden – in their material as well as immaterial dimensions – against the intrusion of some of the European Union’s internal others: poor and racialised Eastern European Roma.

    Vad är den svenska modellen?: historieskrivning i den samtida ’tiggeridebatten’2017Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna presentation problematiserar den historieskrivning som förmedlas genom den pågående debatten rörande närvaron av tiggande EU-medborgare i svenska städer. Något som är utmärkande för denna debatt är de återkommande hänvisningarna till välfärdsstatens tillblivelse. Nyligen meddelades det att regeringen överväger att införa ett tiggeriförbud. Detta för att försvara ’den svenska modellen’. På liknande sätt rättfärdigade politiker i Malmö stad beslutet att utrymma och riva det så kallade Sorgenfrilägret med hänvisning till folkhemspolitikens löfte om ’goda bostäder för alla’. Även de som ställt sig kritiska till dessa åtgärder har åberopat historiskt baserade argument. Många har hävdat att dagens politik är ett uttryck för en historiskt kontinuerlig antiziganism, och att denna politik särskilt påminner om de exkluderande åtgärder som riktades mot romer och resande under 1900-talets första årtionden. Vi frågar oss här vilka föreställningar om det svenska välfärdssamhället och dess historia som åberopas och återskapas genom den så kallade tiggeridebatten. Baserat på vår forskning om det svenska samhällets reaktioner mot närvaron av tiggande EU-medborgare, belyser vi hur dagens debatt många gånger framställer välfärdssamhällets tillblivelse som en enhetlig nationell framgångssaga på ett sätt som osynliggör de kränkningar och övergrepp mot romer och resande som pågick under tidsperioden. Vi visar också på hur dagens tiggande EU-medborgare gång efter annan utpekas som ett hot mot den nationella framgångssagan.
