Abstract [en]

The coastal areas of Sweden have, during various parts of history, played a significant role in the economic and social development of the country. During this century the coastal areas have emerged as more and more attractive to different interested parties. For many people the non-urban coastal areas have gained importance as leisure time and holiday landscapes. The central authorities have perceived new values that society should gain control over and utilize, amongst other things in the form of areas for the public's outdoor recreational activities and for tourism, zones of establishment for industries and tracts of nature to be shown off as "national jewels" in international environmental contexts. This study aims at analysing how different areas of interest have focused on the Swedish coastal landscape and its coastal areas during the 20th century, which actors and outlooksthat have thereby set the tone, as well as how conflicts of interest have misen and been handled. The study can be regarded as an effort to increase knowledge about the causes and driving forces behind today's utilization, preservation and protection of the Swedish coastal landscape. At a national level interests are most frequentlyformulated from urban outlooks which, for example, the question of beach protection and the Riparian Law distinctly shows. The Riparian Law was introduced in 1950 and tbereby priority was given to the publics' recreational activities, ahead of other utilization interests in the country's coastal areas. At the local level the patterns of connection and conflict are generally complex, illustrated in this study by means of a number of local examples from bstergotland' s coastal landscape.
