Abstract [en]

Contemporary welfare state restructuring in Sweden has led to increased ethnic and residential segregation in larger cities but also to the emergence of urban unrest. Following violent youth rebellions in Swedish suburbs during 2009 a plurality of new dialogue oriented activist groups have emerged among youth, profiled as ‘urban justice movements’. They represent a grassroots mobilization that interconnects spatial with social (in-) justice and addresses issues of segregation, racism and welfare transformation in Swedish cities. The article discusses agency, claims and the meaning of home-making among two generations of activists in multiethnic Swedish suburbia. The authors argue that emergence of new urban justice movements as a public voice expresses politics in making, relating the local with the national and connecting rights to the city with rights to home and belonging.
