Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to find out what some young adults who have grown up in Husby themselves for perception of the area, what do they think they brought with them of their childhood there, and find out what they think others do not live in Husby has view of the area. In our study we also tried to find out what the young adults raised in Husby think about the media's influence on public perception of the area Husby, and what they think about the neighborhood's future. The main results that we believe we have come up with is that the media seems to have a big role in the creation of our beliefs. The respondents indicate that they think the media portrays an unfair picture of the suburb and its inhabitants. We believe it is very important that people meet to avoid the categories "us" and "them" to be formed. We have also seen that the boys stamp as suburban guys have both advantages and disadvantage depending on context. Several of the guys expressing a frustration that they sometimes needs to take responsibility for the actions of others just because of their appearance or the area they live in. They also tell that they mostly have negative reactions when they say that they come from Husby. Sometimes they feel that they are not beeing seen for the person they are. Some positive things they have brought with them from their childhood in Husby is the multicultural mix and they have learned to meet people from different cultures. Other benefits they have brought with them is the love and the community that childhood was marked by. There are different opinions about Husby's future in our interviews. Everyone likes the area but many of the interviewees say that they do not want to live there in the future when they start families. because they want their children to grow up in a more integrated setting than what they think Husby is today.
