dc.description.abstract The paper is based on a study that aims to investigate children and young people’s perceptions and experiences of inclusion and segregation in everyday life. It is a study conducted in Malmö, a city in south of Sweden which in recent years has experienced drastic demographic changes. It has therefore been in focus for discussions and debates about increasing residential segregation due to schools, neighborhoods, population health, and socio economic development (The Malmö commission 2014, Save the Children 2015). In the study, we focus children and young people’s perspectives because their voices are seldom heard regarding research on and debates of segregation and inclusion in cities. The study has been conducted in two phases. In the first phase, children and young people with different socio-economic and ethnic background, living in different neighborhoods, has been interviewed. The results show that inclusion and segregation, from their point of view, is related to everyday areas such as school, neighborhood, leisure time and the media. The definition of segregation involves themes such as ‘living in different worlds’, ‘not recognizing oneself in the other’ and ‘having different living conditions’. The definition of inclusion includes such as, ‘striving towards the same goal’, ‘having common interests and experiences’, ‘mixing with others’, ‘joining together and talking to each other’, ‘recognition’, ‘loyalty’, and ‘to be listen to by adults who they trust’. The results from the interviews has led to a number of hypotheses that in January-Mars 2016 will be explored with a larger group of children and young people, by a questionnaire. en_US
