The Danish media perceives Mjølnerparken as a community. But the inhabitants of Mjølnerparken do often not have a say in regards to the discourse in the media. This project aims to find out if Mjølnerparken is a community and whether the inhabitants portray themselves as one. By using the theories of Benedict Anderson and Anthony D. Smith the project will account for different aspects of a community. Based on interviews, with five inhabitants of Mjølnerparken, this project will elaborate on the daily life in Mjølnerparken and additionally prove how the inhabitants view themselves as a group. This project concludes that the inhabitants of Mjølnerparken recognise themselves as a community.
