Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine the perspective of suburban youths on their residential are. This research is based upon qualitative interviews. In order to analyse the qualitative interviews that will be conducted, two theories will be implemented. To achieve the highest quality results, different theories will be applied to suit the purpose of this study. Our informants are three male and three females aged 18-19, living in a suburban area of south Stockholm.

The results in this study have highlighted that young people in suburban areas have both positive and negative image of their residential areas. The youths believe that the society have attributed bad conceptions towards them. Even though they don’t agree with the society, the youths do not seem to see light in the future for the area.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att utifrån förortsungdomars perspektiv undersöka deras syn på livet i sitt bostadsområde. Detta görs genom kvalitativa intervjuer. Informanter i studien är tre tjejer och tre killar i åldern 18–19 år. Alla är bosatta och uppväxta i ett förortsområde söder om Stockholm. Intervjusvaren i studien har analyserats med hjälp av två teorier samt tidigare forskning.

Resultaten har betonat att förortsungdomar har både positiv och negativ bild av sitt bostadsområde, samt att de övriga i samhället har bidragit till att skapa negativa föreställningar om dem. Ungdomarna verkar ha svårt att se en ljus framtid för och i sitt bostadsområde.
