2015 | Other Gentrifications:
Urban Change Beyond the Core
In the 2015 edition of City Debates, we are planning to explore the processes of urban change associated with gentrification. The conference will set the debate within the international field of gentrification research, but in urban contexts facing issues of (post) conflict and (post) crisis reconstructions, foreign and domestic investment and dis-investment, communal and political tensions, and regional insecurities. In bringing together critical international perspectives with scholars and practitioners working on cities across the region, the conference will investigate the relevance of established analytical frameworks to Mediterranean and Middle Eastern settings.
