Track 5

Track 5- Changing Neighbourhoods in the Moving City
Sebastian Kurtenbach (ISS-ZEFIR) and Jan Üblacker (FWGW).

Rising social inequalities have a variety of effects on neighbourhoods in (European) cities. Demographic and migration shifts, structural change of labour economy, and neoliberal policies drive processes of socio-spatial (re)sorting that lead to either decline or ascent of neighbourhoods. For urban scholars issues of social and ethnic mixing, downgrading, neighbourhood effects, and gentrification are at stake. Taking into account the development of the city as a whole, these contrary processes can often be observed side by side. This track especially invites empirical contributions based on quantitative, qualitative and mixed-method designs. Case studies as well as comparative settings are welcome.
