This thesis deals with justice in urban planning and development. In 2010 the municipal board in Gothenburg initiated a workgroup to create a vision which had the purpose to serve as a platform for further development in the central part of the city and to deal with the pattern of increasing segregation and polarization. “Vision Älvstaden” includes the development of the former dock area Frihamnen/ Ringön which is going to be an integrated part of the inner city. Drawing on theories of justice in urban development this text analysis evaluate whether the vision and the plans for this area considers the criterion of equity, democracy and diversity. The material consists mainly of public documents related to the planning process. The analysis shows that Gothenburg has ambitions to create a more just city to lessen segregation. This applies especially for the studied area Frihamnen since this area will include housing for groups with limited resources. However, the analysis also shows that the vision in its entirety stresses the importance for the city to enhance economic growth. Or in other words, equity is not prioritized to the necessary extent for the urban renewal project to be called just. (Less)
