Abstract [en]

Segregation and poverty in multi-family housing areas is a challenge facing many European cities creating a new policies for the post-welfare states. Due to privatization, retrenchment of the welfare state and increased immigration Sweden is not exception. City politics with different large scale projects to prevent further stigmatization and bad reputation of a specific housing area has during the last 10-15 years become a national and local policy in Swedish cities and municipalities. Ideas of deliberation and inclusion is common in the govenance of these projects. Immigrant women are mostly described as a target group as they are considered being passive, isolated and lacking the skills and knowledge to behave as the responsible, acitve citizen and consumer of good and sustainable housing. In this paper we present data from a case-study of a Swedish local housing policy being a part of multi-level governace regarding energy efficiancy and refurbishment of public housing. 40 per cent of the families have a background in Asia/Africa. Gender and etnicity play a crucial role when Swedish women in the name of care in socal projects face the immigrant women.
