Gender dimensions in Swedish municipal planning and crisis management : a research review (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this research review of gender dimensions within research of municipal planning is to learn from previous studies as a new field of research is being established, namely gender and climate mitigation and adaptation. The research review has shown that women are often depicted as a homogenous group with common interests within the different areas that are included in the study: housing, civil rights to participate and influence political decisions, safety. planning and planning practices, risk and crisis management. The result from the research review encourages further research that broadens the picture of both the multiple lives of women and men and likewise illustrates multiple family forms. This research can challenge the notion of men and women as homogeneous groups. Studies of the construction and reconstruction of gender as a social and cultural category may further develop this field. An intersectional perspective on urban planning may also visualize how gender, ethnicity, family, sexuality, age and class intersect and contribute to various forms of exclusion.
