Abstract [en]

The Municipality of Helsingborg has renewed its organization and set up five Civic Committees. In an attempt to position the inhabitants as communicative rather than self-interested, the Civic Committees focus on issues of the future, active participation and unselfish engagement. In doing this some identities become more relevant than others. In this short essay I will point at the importance of the parenthood identity for making participation relevant in the activities organized by the Civic Committees in Helsingborg
