citat Imagine a lot of space in the dense city; rooftops, abandoned areas and lifeless yards, were suddenly made available for anyone to act upon and implement their ideas and initiatives. What would then happen? Who would then act? citat

The PhD-research project will find out how combined use and sharing of land and space in the dense urban context is practised, and how it can be further developed. Facing the overwhelming challenges from climate change and the complexity that comes with increasing densification, there is a need to create space for new functions in the constantly growing and transforming city. This opens up for a more widespread sharing perspective on urban space than what is actually practised today. The research uses case studies of combined land use within climate change-adapted urban space in Copenhagen and Malmö to evaluate existing and planned combinations of functions and different stakeholders in the city. The central questions concern how the benefits look like and which the obstacles turn out to be? One obvious aspect would be to involve other stakeholders than the property owners to invest and take an active part in the city development. The research applies theories of commons and urban commons, as well as theories of governance and densification. The PhD project is performed by Per Larsson as a part time involvement parallel to his profession as surveyor and land law expert at the City Planning Office in Malmö. The research is financed by the city of Malmö with financial support from The Swedish Research Council Formas.
