Abstract
This paper aims to investigate infrastructure’s ability to affect integration in socio-economically vulnerable areas. The paper focuses on Rosengard train station and uses it as a case study to concretize the link between infrastructure and integration. To give further understanding of the subject, earlier studies of infrastructure challenges and integration are examined. Don Mitchell’s new axioms of reading the landscape are used as a method to analyze how built environments affects social life. An interview with the project leader of Rosengard station is conducted to get an insight into the project and its causes and obstacles. The study concludes that there is a great challenge to integrate socio-economically vulnerable areas through... (More)

An interview with the project leader of Rosengard station is conducted to get an insight into the project and its causes and obstacles. The study concludes that there is a great challenge to integrate socio-economically vulnerable areas through infrastructure. Infrastructure as a tool for integrating is often dependent on further investments in housing and so on, which in the end does not necessarily result in integrating the inhabitants of the area.
