The theoretical framework addresses previous research related to integration and segregation with a focus on public transport and accessibility. The phenomenon of social mix is also described. The result of the analysis shows that improved public transport is part of the work to break segregation. Malmöpendeln is an important investment, but the social efforts are at least as important. The station in Rosengård can lead to a better reputation in the area but there are more effective initiatives if you want to improve integration. Investing more directly on welfare is seen as a more effective way. If the Malmöpendel is to be seen as a successful project, the social efforts must succeed. (Less)
