Radio Sweden goes down south for a special edition of our show ahead of the general election. Join the audience at Parktorget in Malmö’s Folkets Park for a discussion with locals and politicians, plus live performances by Faela and Marianne da Cruz.
With a population of roughly 300,000, Malmö is a bustling city, often promoted as a cosmopolitan location that literally bridges the gap between Sweden and the rest of Europe. But Malmö also gets a bad rap for being segregated.
Is the image of Malmö as a deeply divided city a myth or a reality?
Where are the dividing lines when it comes to access to resources and public space? How have local politicians affected the situation and what are their promises ahead of the election when it comes to combatting social exclusion? Those are some of the questions we'll be putting to Malmö residents and politicians as we take Radio Sweden down south. Join us there!
Special guests include:
Malmö mayor Katrin Stjernfeldt Jammeh (Social Democrat Party)
Stefan Lindhe, local government commissioner (Moderate Party)
Federico Moreno, journalist at regional newspaper Sydsvenskan
and Soraya Post, Member of the European Parliament (Feminist Initiative)
