Gentrification Practices in European Cities

We bring to you this amazing research project exploring 4 European Cities – totally different cities, but in each there is a hood that is experiencing gentrification. We are looking at that from different topics: Demography, Economy, Property and Planning. We are super interested to know what the indicators are and if they can apply for cities as different as Arnhem, Istanbul, Vienna and Zurich. And we are counting stories from the places we have been, so join us discovering the neighbourhoods Klarendal (Arnhem), Cihangir (Istanbul), Rudolfsheim-Fünfhaus (Vienna) and Zurich West.

We have a serious academic background too, in case you were wondering. Read more in our About section!
