Book release & discussion: Mellan resignation och framtidstro


The book “Mellan resignation och framtidstro” (Between Resignation and Hope for the Future), published by Natur & Kultur, is a counter-narrative to the stereotypical image of young people in the suburbs. The book brings together three research projects focusing on the limitations and opportunities in young people’s living conditions and learning in some of Gothenburg’s most stigmatized neighborhoods. Nicolas Lunabba moderates a panel discussion with Aina Gagliardo, Mikael Stigendal, Julia Böhler, and Daniel Diaz about the book. The program is in Swedish.

About the book

The book is written by Ove Sernhede, Nils Hammarén, Johannes Lunneblad, Sara Uhnoo, Majsa Allelin, Kristina Alstam, Helene Fransson, Marcus Herz, and Jonas Lindbäck. Through qualitative research methods, they amplify the voices of young people and locally engaged individuals. The book is divided into three parts: The Suburb, School, and Youth Learning; Youth Communities and Informal Learning; School and the Transformation of the Suburb. The knowledge conveyed in the book can contribute to reversing the current trend, improving school outcomes, and increasing prospects for young people in our segregated cities – knowledge about the importance of equity and hope for the future.

About the seminar

The participants in the discussion are Aina Gagliardo (from Hela Malmö), Mikael Stigendal (researcher at Malmö University), Julia Böhler (Malmö Leisure Services), and Daniel Diaz (representative from Hassela Skåne). The moderator for the discussion is Nicolas Lunabba, author and manager of Hela Malmö. The discussion will be conducted in Swedish and will last for approximately two hours.
