Abstract [en]

In order to alleviate the housing shortage among the newcomers, the Swedish state proposes temporary modular housing as a complement to the ordinary housing market. The purpose of this paper is to describe and analyze the development of the Swedish housing policy towards a modular housing directed to vulnerable groups in the housing market. It will be described whether the new aim in the housing policy is consistent with the traditional housing policy. Furthermore, it will be described how the local government is working to implement the proposal. The paper is based on combinations of methods. A study of literature is used for describing the development of the housing policy. A pilot study is made to provide information regarding the work to implement the proposal in a Municipality. The result shows that the housing policy over the years has given attention to the general population and housing market, without any priorities between social groups. Despite that a universal oriented welfare policy still is the fundament in housing policy, the development tends to show off more targeted efforts in order to maintain residents' rights to housing.
