Explaining the gentrification of our neighbourhoods
The New Urban Agenda aims to improve the living conditions in European cities. But the upgraded neighbourhoods face gentrification – the result of an increasing attraction to the area from people with higher incomes and rising costs of living. This results in inequalities and displacement of the more exposed population. The EU-funded GentriHealth project will examine and minimalize negative social consequences of this policy. It will focus on gentrification processes in the Spanish city of Madrid and in Brisbane, Australia, comparing related urban policies and social and health correlations, as well as impacts within several groups of society regarding their material status and gender. The project will produce evidence allowing more liveable and fair urban solutions for European cities.
