Renaissance for the margins: urban youth activism in Sweden
2017 (English)In: Reimagineering the nation: essays on twenty-first-century Sweden / [ed] Aleksandra Ålund, Carl-Ulrik Schierup, Anders Neergaard, Frankfurt am Main: Peter Lang Publishing Group, 2017, 351-374 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Analysing the formation of a political subjectivity among swedish urban justice activists the authors discuss resistance against cultural stigmatization and social exclusion. An emergent critical public voice confronts marginalization within the formalised context of "invited spaces" for citizenship dialogues as activists create new "invented spaces" for public participation, in order to promote democratic development.
