Abstract
This study aims at investigating the crime prevention measures in Sofielund, Malmö. BID Sofielund is a unique collaboration between property owners and the public sector in a Swedish context, where they work together to make the district safer and more attractive.

This study aims at investigating the crime prevention measures in Sofielund, Malmö. BID Sofielund is a unique collaboration between property owners and the public sector in a Swedish context, where they work together to make the district safer and more attractive. Therefore, there is every reason to investigate the crime preventing methods used in this collaboration. And what interests are behind the creation of BID Sofielund and how should they be understood?
In the study, it is argued that BID Sofielund originates from the public sector’s goal to transform the district from a problem area into an innovation area. The association is also driven by economic interests by property owners - a development that many critics indicate is the start of a gentrification process, which the association denies.
This can be linked to the major transformation process in Malmö, ie. what from the 1990s and onwards has been called for Malmö's transformation from a problem city to a knowledge-based city. The conversion that takes place in Sofielund follows the same logic - from a problem area to an innovation area - but on a smaller scale. (Less)

	In the study, it is argued that BID Sofielund originates from the public sector’s goal to transform the district from a problem area into an innovation area. The association is also driven by economic interests by property owners - a development that many critics indicate is the start of a gentrification process, which the association denies.
