Abstract [en]

This essay provides a study of the plans for the spaces that is used to integrate newly arrived immigrants that occurs within the society of Kalmar. A qualitative analysis consisting of two official documents provided by the local authorities of Kalmar have been used, to examine what kind of strategy the local government use, when it comes to creating space to host and integrate newly arrived immigrants to the local society. Recent researches in the field of human geography and immigrants have shown that previously focus has been with the immigrants travel and what occurs at the borders. Recently the focus has shifted towards what happens on a regional scale when the immigrants settle down. This study provides results that show the desired spaces are constructed as places for integration both in action and in thought. Although many of the spaces that are constructed are with the intention to both integrate the new immigrants and create a multicultural society that benefits from the many cultures that flourish in it. The focus is not only on integration but also on a perspective of growth to be able to use the immigrants as work resources. And by doing so, the local government assure not only an integrated city but also makes the immigrants fill the gap in an economic and growth perspective. Conclusions that are drawn from this study shows that most spaces that is planned to be created will indeed help to bring different groups closer and bond to each other, but some of the plans may backfire and create segregation instead of integration.
