Abstract [en]

This study aims to understand how young-adults, residents Hallunda-Norsborg, relate to the police’s definition of their residential area as “particularly vulnerable”. Do the young adultsagree with the term or is there any tension between their descriptionand the police’s definition? In previous research, it appears that residents of an area referred to as “particularly vulnerable” are described as cut off and isolated from the remaining majority society. We consider it relevant to gain an understanding ofthe residents' view of their residential area in comparison with the police authority's term. The study is based on qualitative semi-structured interviews with three young men and women aged 20-25. The study uses stigmatization and critical-urban theory, as well as social exclusion as theoretical starting points. The result shows that the residents experience a stigma towards Hallunda-Norsborg through the media's presentation, the treatment from others and within the labor market. They are partly in line with the police's definition of a "particularly vulnerable area" and that it corresponds to Hallunda-Norsborg. However, the definition is considered to be negatively emphasized as it creates a stamp of “vulnerability”that affects the majority society’s view of Hallunda-Norsborg. The conclusion is that young-adults in Hallunda-Norsborg relate in part to the police’s term but that they can also relate their experiences to it. The experiences that are highlighted is that the term isnegative creates a feeling of “exclusion” that affects the young-adultsrelationship with majority society.
