Abstract [en]

This study contributes to a body of literature that addresses relationships betweenspace, place and identity, and their effects on young people’s ‘spatial horizons’.Drawing on ethnographic data from Sweden, it analyses youths’ identification withhome place and how it relates to their imagined spatial futures in terms of staying‘local’ or migrating. The findings indicate that locality strongly influenced the identity-processing of youths, but there was no straightforward relationship betweenidentification with home place and willingness to stay in that place. Rather thehome place’s perceived and narrated relation to other places, as well as its materialconditions, social relationships and practices, contributed to the youths’ articulatedviews of their spatial futures.
