Abstract [sv]

Uppsatsen undersöker hur de upplevda riskerna påverkar stockholmarnas vardagliga liv. Denna studie genomfördes med hjälp av kvalitativ metod och ett induktivt tillvägagångssätt valdes av författaren. 24 intervjuer med stockholmare genomfördes inom ramen för projekten. Dessa, med hjälp av innehållsanalysen bearbetade intervjuer, lades till grund för de slutsatser som presenteras i studien. Uppsatsen uppmärksammar kluvenheten i frågan om uppfattning av sin livsmiljö och dess säkerhet/trygghet som präglar stockholmarnas existens. Den kluvna uppfattningen av säkerhet och trygghet benämns av författaren för den partiella tryggheten. Samexistensen av känslan av trygghet och otrygghet kännetecknar den partiella tryggheten. Upplevelsen av den partiella tryggheten ses i ett större sammanhang och det påvisas hur den vid applicering på stockholmarnas vardag försämrar deras livskvalité, sätter begränsningar på deras rörelse- och handlingsfrihet samt i slutändan gör staden mindre tillgänglig.

Abstract [en]

The thesis studies how perceived risks affect the daily life of inhabitants of Stockholm, Sweden. The study was conducted through qualitative method and an inductive approach was selected by the author. 24 interviews with Stockholmers were conducted within the framework of the projects. These through the means of content analysis processed interviews were used as a basis for the conclusions presented in the study. The thesis considers the ambiguity in the question of perception of environment and the security/safety thereof, which characterises the existence of Stockholmers. The ambiguous perception of security and safety is by the author named partial safety. Coexistence of the sense of safety and unsafety characterizes partial security. The experience of partial safety is seen as a more comprehensive context and it is shown how it, when applied to the everyday life of Stockholmers, has a negative impact on their quality of life, imposes limits on their freedom of movement and -action, as well as ultimately makes the city less accessible.
