Abstract (Swedish)
Cities have become more and more involved with the process of European integration. In spite of this, there is no separate policy area for cities within the EU today and the field of urban politics is instead regulated through various networks and programmes specialized in funding EU-projects This essay is a case-study aiming to adopt the perspectives of ‘top-down’ and ‘bottom-up’ steering in order to examine the shaping, implementation and consequence of these projects in the city of Malmö, Sweden. Furthermore it seeks to identify a potential process of europeanisation following EU-projects, asking the question whether EU-projects are being used as measures of control.

Cities have become more and more involved with the process of European integration. In spite of this, there is no separate policy area for cities within the EU today and the field of urban politics is instead regulated through various networks and programmes specialized in funding EU-projects This essay is a case-study aiming to adopt the perspectives of ‘top-down’ and ‘bottom-up’ steering in order to examine the shaping, implementation and consequence of these projects in the city of Malmö, Sweden. Furthermore it seeks to identify a potential process of europeanisation following EU-projects, asking the question whether EU-projects are being used as measures of control.
The main consequences for the city following these EU-projects are ruled down to economic importance; gains through financial fundings and social importance; gains from increased networking and knowledge exchange. The analysis also shows that the shaping and implementation of EU-projects is created through a synthesis of top-down and bottom-up relations between the EU and the sub-national level. Simultaneously, there are signs of a europeanisation process following the projects, creating the same synthesised controlling measures as described above in connection to the shaping and implementation of the projects.
