Abstract
The purpose of this essay was to investigate the experience of being young and living in Herrgården in Rosengård, Malmö, from the aspects of six adolescents, two police officers, one social worker and one youth leader; and also what the cause is according to them, of disturbances arousing like those in the spring of 2007.

At this moment there were antagonisms between adolescents and policemen. The research was performed with a qualitative method based on partly structured interviews. Four kinds of main themes were notable from the interview results. Those were: Growing up in Herrgården, Other peoples' view of Herrgården, Identity and Causes of the disturbances. The housing area Herrgården is a constant subject for media news watch and average people tend to generalize their opinions based on what they hear and read about Herrgården primarily from television and newspapers. The adolescents in the essay expressed their affection for their neighbourhood at the same time as they fought the prejudices coming from media. The interviewed persons working in the area described the situation of the young people as characterized by social problems and lack of integration. The adolescents explained the disturbances in the area mainly as a result of shortage of leisure-time activities. The policemen, the social worker and the youth leader gave the discontent and frustration of lack of recourses in general among the dwellers, as a cause of commotions. (Less)
