Migration has transformed the cityscapes of Sweden dramatically in recent years but the transnational processes of migrant flows have been an indelible force in Europe’s cities for decades. With a focus on Stockholm and a comparative Study Tour to Sicily, we will consider the social and spatial impacts of voluntary and involuntary global migrant movements, the dynamics of displacement and place-making in the built environment, and the complexities and creative strategies of migrant communities in urban spaces.
