Article is part of a PhD in criminology, defended 2013. She explores how drug users’ uses and experiences of the public space reflect power relations in the city. Their experiences with the police and other agencies are of particular importance. She followed six people between two and four years. They are all in their forties and have used illegal drugs such as heroin and amphetamines for large parts of their adult lives. In addition, she have used other sources of knowledge in order to gain a general overview of the drug scene in Oslo and its position in the public space: field work in the open drug scene in downtown Oslo, conversations with people in the open drug scene, interviews and conversations with people in the social services, and analyses of newspapers and public documents.
