Kuvaus

In the urban public spaces of Helsinki, Finland, the pluralistic cultural and social practices of young people and the authorities repeatedly take place. This chapter looks at a selected area of Helsinki, one where the population varies and where questions of social class, ethnicity and gender are not just intertwined but are made visible through a contested use of public spaces, in which different ‘power geometries’ (Massey 1994) are traced. As well as contextualizing these cases within the formal state, such as Government Acts on education, youth work, gender equality and the current political atmosphere, I assume that the building of respectable and active citizenship takes place in informal social relations. These processes of building ‘urban citizenship’ (Gordon 2007) are looked at through power geometries, and balances formed in different urban spaces such as schools, youth clubs, shopping centres and the streets. The belonging to, or marginalization from, urban space is strongly connected to social, ethnic and gendered orders. The everyday social orders of who is who, and who is respected and valued, are built in these different urban sites, orders that intertwine with gender, ethnicity and social class.
