Abstract
The study aims to make visible how the Swedish state has been constituting and conceptualising segregation in housing as a societal problem since 1950.

The study aims to make visible how the Swedish state has been constituting and conceptualising segregation in housing as a societal problem since 1950. Critical discourse analysis makes up the theoretical and methodical framework. It focuses on the relationship between the conceptualisation of segregation in housing and the hierarchies of power along ethnic and class dimensions in the making of its discursive practice. Motivated by the ideology of the Swedish Model of the welfare state, the areas from the time of the Million Program and its inhabitants have come to be represented as segregated elements which are supposed to become integrated and disciplined. Instead of noticing society’s accountability in the making of segregation only certain groups have been blamed as scapegoats for a relational problem. It is a process indicating a continued ideological divide in a superior “us” and inferior “other”, which in a wider perspective affects the political approach to integration and segregation. The study thus argues that the discursive practice keeps reproducing dominant hierarchies of power. (Less)
