Project description

The overall aim of the PhD project is to provide a better understanding of the access to and the state of housing quality within the Swedish housing system. With an emphasis on qualitative methods and the residents’ perspectives, the aim is to make visible the poor housing conditions and its consequences for those affected as well as inequalities and its potential wider societal implications.

The project further aims to analyze how and why this occurs in the context of the Swedish welfare state and housing provision. Moreover, an important purpose is to contribute with a developed (conceptual) understanding of housing quality in the current Swedish context.

Supervisors: Carina Listerborn and Martin Grander
