Abstract
This thesis is a discourse analysis of a political process where Malmö city
introduced a new local parking policy aiming to limit the use of cars in the city.The use of a parking policy to restrict car usage exemplifies how cities emerge as key actors in global climate change politics.
The analysis builds on Maarten A. Hajers argumentative discourse theory and

The analysis shows that three discourses emerged in the political process. First,parking policy as a means to question the car as central for city planning, second,parking policy for sustainibility and third, parking policy as a right to drive a car.

Three coalitons of actors supported the three discourses. The analysis shows that the political majority was split between two different discourses and the clerks played important roles.
The sustainability discourse was institutionalised in the parking policy that was adpoted. There was an initial political idea to reduce housing costs by lowering the compulsory standards for parking space for new buildings. But this idea was not fully realised in the parking standards that were adopted. (Less)
