This book is the first interdisciplinary work to explore the implications of the current changes in the Swedish welfare state and society on urban planning and policy-making. It examines several central themes of local, social, environmental and political planning – for example, deinstitutionalization in psychiatry, symbiosis between planners and welfare organizers, ecostrategies and sustainability planning, housing and social care and decentralization within the public sector. The contributors outline current developments that are making Sweden something other than ‘a clean, well-lit place.’ Containing theoretical analyses, literature reviews and case studies, the book draws upon a wide range of official and academic sources, many of which are not otherwise available in English. This comprehensive work will be of interest to students and scholars in social policy, policy studies, policy-making and town planning.
