Sustainable development is often pictured as containing of three interlinked dimensions- namely environmental, economic and social. ?Social sustainability? is a vague concept that is often thought of as highly context-dependent. This thesis sets out to investigate the meaning of ?social sustainability? in a given context. The context being that of the urban renewal project of Norra Sorgenfri in the municipality of Malmö, Sweden. Interviews were carried out with eight officials and the material was then analysed. ?Meetings? and ?the mixed city? were two tendencies that played a central part in the meaning of the concept. Drawing from theories on the definition of the concept, the conclusion that social sustainability in Malmö first and foremost deals with measures concerning equity, inclusion and access was made. This thesis also holds a discussion about whether the concept is thought of as a means or a goal. The interviewees tend to focus on the means which has permitted them to envision different ends.
