About me

In my thesis, I investigate the political-economic and spatial role of tenancy in todays’ cities. I scrutinize, with the city of Malmö as a departure point, the role of public housing historically until today, but also how private rental housing exemplifies housing financialization in the Swedish context. I also investigate urban regeneration, specifically how the project ‘Culture Casbah’ enmeshes housing political and urban political changes. My empirical material derives from interviews, observations, document- and archival material as well as statistics as secondary data. The aim of my thesis is to deepen the knowledge on changing relations around housing and to problematize the effect of this change on tenants.

I have before studied Human Geography and Human Ecology (BA) and Library and Information Studies (MA) at Lund University.
