On social resistance to housing displacement
The displacement of affordable housing emerged during the 2008 financial crisis. However, the related social resistance has yet to be fully explored. The EU-funded NOMAD-Outcome project will study the results of different neighbourhood-based mobilisations against displacement. It will focus on several high-profile cases: Parc-Extension in Montréal, Poble Sec in Barcelona, and La Guillotière in Lyon. It will also focus on three types of outcomes: favourable media coverage, social recognition, and influence of public agenda. NOMAD-Outcome assumes that the capacity to generate results depends on collective action mechanisms like the diversification of protest tactics, the formation of coalitions, and the desingularisation of a neighbourhood’s individual experience.
