Genusperspektiv på utveckling av kollektivtrafik: hållbar jämställdhet vid planering av framtidens kollektivtrafik i Malmö

Charlotta Faith-Ell

This research project focuses on gender equality and sustainability in planning of public transport. It consists of four parts:

  1. Mapping the current status in the organisation - focus groups with planning staff and content analysis of texts and images produced within the project concerning future public transport in the city of Malmö
  2. Seminars and workshops
  3. Study of the practice of public consultations and the participation of citizens in the planning process
  4. Evaluation and compilation of results and effects.

The point of departure for the evaluation of the results is the four national objectives for gender equality formulated by the Swedish Government and Parliament, which Malmö City has chosen to include in their own policy. The objectives have not hitherto been properly developed and operationalized in the local context of transport planning in Malmö. The following local adaptions are suggested:

  1. Equal distribution of power and influence. There would be equal distribution of power and influence between women and men in decision making and implementation processes in the public transport planning in Malmö
  2. Economic equality. Public transport in Malmö would contribute to equitable opportunities for women and men to education and paid work which gives economic independence
  3. Equal distribution of unpaid care and household work. Public transport in Malmö would contribute to the establishment of equal distribution between men and women regarding the responsibility for unpaid housework and the ability to give and receive care
  4. Security. Increased security by minimising the risk and eliminating the fear of being subjected to gender-related violence and crime in connection with travel by public transport
