This chapter discusses the 2013 riots in Stockholm in the perspective of a range of urban rebellions in disadvantaged metropolitan neighbourhoods of the North-Atlantic region of the past three decades of neoliberal transformation. the authors examine consequences of securitisation and police repression, institutional racism, the corrosion of citizenship an the structuring of inequality in swedish cities and they ask whether the Stockholm uprising could possibly open space for new political voices.
