Not for sale! Explaining the Outcomes of Neighbourhood Mobilisations Against Displacement

Project description

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.
